Ah, the holidays. An exciting and hectic time of year for everyone, and arguably more so for the small business owner. You have the same pressure to make the most of this time of year, but with a much smaller budget for doing so. But don’t worry, advances in technology and the ever-growing popularity of social media are making it easier for you to get a piece of that holiday pie.
Most big brands have their holiday plans finalized and are ready to start implementing in September or October. And while your small business may have the agility to start a bit later and still get things out in time, why wait? If you want to be a big brand yourself some day, you better start making your holiday plan while you’re still wearing flip flops and sitting by the pool – no matter how wrong it may feel.
