The 6 Januariest Things You Can Do With Your Site This, Uh, January

So January is kind of a bland and boring month. If it was a person it’d be Charlie Brown, if he was first magically transformed from a cartoon to a human. Kind of a waste of magic, but whatever.

There isn’t one huge, overarching theme to the month like Christmas for December or my birthday for February (the 15th, save gift ideas for the comment section). On the one hand, that makes it difficult to write a cohesive post for the month. On the other hand, deadlines exist. So here are the most relevant things you can do with your website before the Tyler’s Birthday Season rush starts next month.

On the one hand, that makes it difficult to write a cohesive post for the month. On the other hand, deadlines exist. So here are the most relevant things you can do with your website before the Tyler’s Birthday Season rush starts next month.

1) Make a resolution to update the site more frequently

Whatever your business may be, make your site work for you. Blog more, update product prices/descriptions, put information about upcoming sales, anything you can do to help your business. Your site is a tool; no sense letting it collect dust/rust/other word ending in -ust.

2) Get over the post-Christmas blues

Christmas is scientifically the best holiday, so the month that is the absolute furthest from the next Christmas is scientifically the worst. Instead of getting down, make that work to your advantage. Have a big sale for leftover Christmas stock. Blog about your company’s goals for the upcoming year. Make your friends jealous with all the great presents you got.

3) Make your site more visible because … less sunlight, I guess?

Charliebrownuary is bleak, in no small part because of how short the days are. This has no effect on your site, though, because the Internet is 24/7 and computer monitors produce their own light from tiny suns behind the screen. You can, however, make your site more visible in the metaphorical sense through increased social media presence, better SEO tracking, encouraging customers to visit, etc.

4) Make your site the Super Bowl MVP of your championship team

The Super Bowl is actually in February this year so whatever you do do NOT name your site MVP until then. You could invalidate the whole selection process otherwise.

5) It’s cold out but you can have blazing hot sales!!!!

I’m really reaching here. Just, you know, sell stuff and make puns about snowflakes and sleet.

6) Make our Support team the Best Boy to the Academy Award-winning film that is your site

Why the Best Boy? Because no one really knows exactly what they do or how they do it, but every Best Picture in history has had one. Let us help you turn your site into the Titanic of websites. (Titanic the movie. Not Titanic the ship … that would be bad.)
