Days get shorter, its starting to get colder, which also means, that we are closing in on some of the biggest holidays of the year, and as if that wasn’t enough, some of the biggest events of the year is also right around the corner.
Maybe you already guessed it, but events and holidays such as halloween, black friday, thanksgiving and christmas is right around the corner which means, that it is time to start preparing, gearing up and spreading the vibes and energi of these good times of the year! 👏
How do you get your business ready for the holidays?
Usually the holidays and big events at this time of year means a lot of traffic on websites, sales and marketing campaigns for most of us, and the customers love when they can save some money. 💰
At this time of year, it is really important not to overlook the importance of preparing your business and your website for big events of the year like these, because if you dont do it, your competitors will, and if you wait for too long, your customers will find alternatives among your competitors.
So, how do you get your business and your website ready for the greatest time of the year? Here we will give you some good advice on how to prepare, and what you could potentially sell, if you are looking to enter the market!
Make sure your website can handle the black friday stress
Every single year on black friday, customers experience websites that break down, or can’t even get access to them, because they simple cant handle all the traffic at once, so they end of looking for alternatives. ⚠️
So before it is too late, make sure that your website can handle the expected amount of visits, so you don’t end up with disappointed customers and perhaps also bad reviews.
Essentially, the more traffic you can handle on your website the better, but obviously you cant spend all your time and ressources on solving this, so we recommend getting some estimates to how many visitors you expect, perhaps benchmark to previous years if possible.
You should also consider how many ressources your spent on marketing and campaigns, because if your website can’t provide what your marketing campaigns have promised, you are for sure going to end up with disappointed customers! 👎
