Holiday Advice for Retailers

The holidays are the busiest time for a retailer, which is great for sales and can really end the fiscal year nicely for many businesses. It’s important to remember that a good holiday season can break sales records for the year before. Nile Corp. wants to let all its valued customers know that we want you all to have a very profitable holiday season and we’ve compiled from useful tips  for many of our independent retailers, enjoy.

1. Clearly explain shipping cut off dates. If your business will be closed December 24 and 25th please make sure to put these restrictions on the checkout page and homepage of your website to ensure customers know that there will be a delay in ship out dates.

2. Study your years past sales record. The goal this year is always to do better than years past. Carefully analyze your last year’s sales and make attainable goals for your staff to schedule and make sure you have adequate amounts of needed supplies such as jewelry boxes, necklace display stands, and gift bags.

3. Offer post cut off date options. For those customers needing last minute gifts consider gift cards or instore gift certificates so people can shop after the shipping cut off period.

4. Just because many of your competitors shut down during this time of year, many customers attend networking events during the holidays. Try to reach out to them and make new connections via holiday parties and gatherings. 

We would like to wish our valued customers a happy holiday and a strong selling season this Christmas, from all your friends at Nile Corp!
