Christmas is coming – way too fast if you ask some of us, not fast enough if you ask the kids!
In the coming weeks, I aim to do some “Countdown to Christmas” posts to give you some ideas for Christmas promotions and generally get your business ready for Christmas.
The first idea is to add a countdown ticker to your website or blog. This can be either to let customers and visitors know how many days left until Christmas, or it can let them know how many days they have left to order from you.
A ticker is an animated banner that counts down how many days left until an event. There are many sites on the Internet where you can get one. Some of these include:
There are many different sites, if you don’t like the designs on the links I’ve mentioned, simply do a Google search for “Christmas Tickers” or “Christmas Countdown Tickers”.
Choose your ticker carefully as you will want one that reflects your business and your website. Some places can even custom make a ticker especially for your business.
Adding a ticker to your website is just one way to make your website “Christmas-y” and can be a useful tool – especially if you have customers constantly asking you when the last day for ordering before Christmas is!
Have you used a ticker on your website? Or do you do something else to decorate it to give it a Christmas feel? Please share with us in the comments section.
