Tips for a Successful Holiday Season

I was recently thinking about what I could do to have a successful holiday season here on Etsy. This is actually my shop’s first holiday season, but I wanted to share some ideas that I will be implementing in my shop. You may want to think about these things as well.
 CUSTOMER HOLIDAY CARDS
You send out holiday cards to your friends and family, so why not customers? This year I plan on creating holiday cards for anyone who purchased from my shop during 2010. Basically thanking them for their business in 2010 and wishing them a happy new year. This will keep you fresh in their mind during the holiday season. (Remember to keep the card fairly generic, you never know what holidays they celebrate)
• SHIPPING CUT-OFF DATES
The USPS posts a holiday shipping cut-off chart to show important holiday shipping dates. I checked and they don’t have the schedule up yet but it should be soon. I plan on posting a link in my shop announcement so that customers can make sure they will get their gifts in time. I also plan on posting a reminder on those important dates on Facebook and Twitter. It would go something like “Don’t forget today is the last day for First-Class shipping if you want to receive your items by December 25th!”
