Are you prepared for the selling season?

9 weeks today and it will all be over! That’s right, 9 weeks today and it’s Boxing Day. The year has flown by, and with just 62 days until the big one, it’s time to start making sure you are fully prepared in the Office for that dreaded word ‘Christmas’!

Whether any of us are prepared for it or even willing to accept it, the fact of the matter is, the holidays are coming. It’s only a matter of time until Marks & Spencer launch their Christmas adverts on television – and grannies everywhere are starting to knit the dreaded Christmas Jumper – Colin Firth in Bridget Jones Diary got off lightly!

The holidays are coming, and we can’t stop the train. But we can make sure that we are fully prepared.

In the midst of all the hustle and bustle, there is one item that is sometimes overlooked. The On Hold Marketing system that you have on your company telephone system.

Are you running extended hours in the lead up to Christmas, or perhaps giving staff a well earned break between the 24th and the 2nd? Are these changes reflected on your on-hold message?

If you are closing down over Christmas how will you let your customers know of this change and what they need to do if they need someone in an emergency?

Are you offering amazing specials that you’d like customers to know about? Do you have shipping deadlines they should be aware of? Or would you simply like to wish them a Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year?
