If you are in the Ecommerce industry, it is obvious that you know the answer to this question. But let’s start with that anyway! Holiday readiness is nothing more than getting ready to promote your business and products way before the holiday season even starts.
And the holiday season is almost here again this year. So, it’s time to start getting ready for it! Last year was hard on every one of us because of the unprecedented Covid 19 situation. Most of us spent our holidays apart from our loved ones and this year is going to be different!
People are going to meet their family for the holiday season and they still don’t prefer going in person for shopping.
And that’s why the Ecommerce industry needs to take advantage of the opportunity and spread happiness through your business by getting holidays ready!
Don’t forget to check our Holiday Readiness Email Marketing Guide if you’re looking for email marketing tips for the entire holiday season.

And the next thing you need to worry about is spam complaints. If you don’t think of possibilities of getting marked spam, then you are doing it wrong.
Here are a couple of things you can do to avoid spam complaints as much as possible for holiday readiness:
Think about this for a second, people visit your store’s site because they like something about your products and they want to buy them immediately or they are browsing it to buy later. So you know you have the traffic.
But if the checkout process is extremely complicated and you haven’t thought about making the experience easier on the customer, then that’s a huge loss for you!
Not putting your customer experience first is why your abandoned cart rate is higher.
Here are a couple of things you need to do to exponentially increase customer experience for holiday readiness:

After Covid 19 hit, the dynamics of online shopping has changed. Although the pandemic has subsided compared to 2020, people still prefer contactless delivery.
So ramp up your delivery model for this holiday season and give an option for contactless delivery. It will also help your brand image if you display images or videos of product manufacturing with proper sanitization!
Holiday season 2021 is a hope for many. It represents that the hard times are finally winding down with as many people are vaccinated. And so it’s time to show compassion to your customers by preparing for holiday readiness earlier than before to communicate with your audience better!
