The holiday season is officially starting and many retailers won’t have time to work on their websites until after the new year. Incredible as it may seem, I’ve actually had customers turn off their websites during this time of the year! Folks, now is the time to make online sales as well as in-store sales. This coming Monday (the Monday after Black Friday) has become known as Cyber Monday, because shoppers that can’t find what they want in the stores then turn to the Internet.

So get busy, create some specials and let your customers know about them.

This is also a good time of the year to update your website or finally add a shopping cart. Why? Because while retailers are busy, web designers may have time to build out your site so that after the Holidays are over, you are ready to launch a new look, starting the New Year off without any slow down. Now that is something to be thankful for.

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!
