How to Keep Your Business Running Smoothly Over the Holidays
The holidays are a time for everyone to kick back, relax, and reflect on the year that has just passed. They are also a time to look to the future and the year ahead, to make resolutions for the new year and perhaps plan a fresh start. You want to be able to enjoy this time with your loved ones, as well as give your employees a break so they come back in the new year invigorated and ready to work. However, you don’t want your business to suffer during this time. Here are a few tips and tricks from the SKYFALL BLUE team to ensure your business is kept running efficiently and smoothly over the holiday season!
Keep clients updated with your holiday hours
In the run up to the holidays, make sure clients are aware of your business hours and when you will be open and closed during the holiday season. This way, they can plan accordingly so they won’t be left out in the cold at the last minute!
Send holiday wishes to your clients
The holidays are a time of looking back at the year that has passed and sending warm wishes for the new year ahead. Make sure to send your existing clients a holiday card or email to let them know that their business is valued!
Make sure you have your voicemail and out of office on
Record a holiday themed voicemail to let clients and customers know when you are out of the office. Make sure you have set up an out of office email to let people know that your response time may be delayed over the holidays.
Pre-schedule posts and tweets
Keep your online business running smoothly by pre-scheduling blog posts, tweets, and other social media content to be posted at specific times throughout the holidays. If you aren’t using it already, Hootsuite is a fantastic online program that enables you to manage all your social media accounts in one place, schedule posts, and interact with your client base.
The most important thing to remember this holiday season is to relax and enjoy precious time spent with family and friends so you can come back in the new year reinvigorated and ready to make 2017 a fantastic business year!
