With the madness of black Friday and cyber Monday, we are now entering the holiday shopping period, which is certainly one of the busiest moments in the shops! Online shops are no exception. The French are making more and more purchases online because it is for them, the best way to avoid the crowd and the queue at the checkout.This is the time to prepare your online store but also your business to the traffic that happens, and is even already started! It would be a shame to miss out on a great opportunity to increase your income! But do not panic, WebSelf offers tips and advice to prepare your business for the holidays!

1. Offer bundled balances or rebates

Although this is a busy time in the shops, people shop however balances, so do not neglect them. Bundled discounts are always welcome, for example ” Buy two items and the third will be free ” or ” The second item at 50% ”. Or, again, offer free shipping for a limited time.

Tip: People are more likely to shell out when they feel a sense of urgency, so feel free to use the words ” for a limited time ” or ” hurry up ”.

2. Get out of new special products

Gift baskets or special holiday products are often unanimous! Diversify your products by grouping them, which will create an ideal gift, or prepare a special packaging. People will really feel that you have made an effort to offer holiday-appropriate gifts, which will increase your sales!

3. Prepare a special newsletter

Put more effort into your December newsletter! Decorate it with festive colors, add one more section than usual by offering your customers your best wishes or add your promotions of the month to encourage your customers to spend on your site!

4. Decorate your site

Add a few decorations to your website! Change your visuals with festive photos and add a touch of red or green to your lyrics! It’s so easy to edit your site with Webself that it will only take a few minutes to give your site a holiday look!
