1. It’s all about the Christmas presence

Maintaining your digital presence over Christmas is key. You might be winding down for festivities, but your customers might not be.

You can also schedule social media posts in advance to make sure you stay… present.

2. It’s time for Christmas shopping

How can you improve your customer’s shopping experience this Christmas? Gift wrapping service? Freebie?
