How to get your business ready for Christmas
2020 has been a crazy year on so many fronts and most of us will be glad to see the back of it. Christmas is fast approaching. Here’s our top tips to get your business ready for the festive season!
Tip 1: Offer online ordering
Online orders were already trending upwards in Australia before COVID-19 hit. More and more Australians are ordering online than ever before, and the Christmas season will be no different.
If your business offers online products or services, make sure the online shopping experience is a good one for your customers. Invest in a good eCommerce system that integrates with your accounting and bookkeeping software to make life easier for yourself too.
Ditto if you have a physical store. Make sure you have a point-of-sale system that integrates with your accounting and bookkeeping software. It should also be quick and efficient to help you avoid long customer queues.
Tip 2: Offer post-pay options
Buy now, pay later services like Afterpay are on the rise. Make sure your business capitalises on this growing trend.
Tip 3: Offer a delivery service
If it makes sense for your business, work out the logistics of an efficient delivery service. It can open up new markets for you and many customers prefer the convenience of ordering and arranging delivery online. Make sure you have a cut-off date for orders to ensure you’ll be able to supply your customers by Christmas if they are buying gifts.
