Have an ecommerce business? Now’s the time to start thinking about getting your site ready for the 2017 holiday season.
It’s beginning to feel a bit like an Alabama Christmas here in Birmingham, and even though temperatures are set to warm back up by the end of the week, it’s a good reminder for those of us who own ecommerce businesses that it’s already time to start prepping for the holidays.
Before you drag out the garland and restock the gift wrap stations in your physical store, autumn is a perfect time to make sure everything’s set up with your online store — after all, Black Friday is only two months away, and planning for your online sales now will free you up to deck the halls more merrily come Thanksgiving.
We’ve collected a few resources to get you started. Head over to our training videos page to watch our free webinar, Optimize Your Ecommerce Site for Holiday Sales, Shipping & Traffic — in it, I walk you through all the steps for prepping your site for the holidays.
