12 days to go: Countdown to Christmas – ensure sales success for your business over Xmas #UELMakeItGlobal

MIG SantaChristmasWe all moan that Christmas decorations go up earlier and earlier each year, but the holiday season is now officially underway.

Despite the holiday season, customers aren’t necessarily going to be knocking down your door to spend. However there are some surefire ways SMB owners can maximise retail activity.

Tim Reed, CEO of MYOB, said being prepared is crucial as activity reaches fever pitch in the lead up to Christmas.

“Putting time aside to work on your business strategy can really help drive sales success. Effective planning now can mean the difference between flourishing and flimsy Christmas sales. There’s more competition for the shopper dollar during this time so plan a range of tactics for attracting them,” Reed said.

“The demands of the silly season, coupled with the commitment of running a business, can be overwhelming. Remember to focus on why you love your work and not lose sight of the reasons you’re in business.”

Here are MYOB’s key steps to sales success in the holiday season:
