For Eigen Zinnig we’ll dot the i’s and cross the t’s this week so everything is ready for the busiest period of the year.

Tip 1: Focus on adjustments to the home page
Bounce rates are higher during the holidays as in other periods. This means people do not visit more than one page of the webshop. With organic traffic this is mainly on your homepage. Therefore, make adjustments for the holidays on that page.
Tip 2: Provide a sub header that is visible on every page in which you show a sale for the holidays
Because this sale is visible on every page, you can easily lower the bounce rate if visitors reach your webshop through a different channel.
Tip 3: Create a page on which you announce your sales
Create curiosity among customers by announcing coming discounts on a specific page. Indicate that you will provide more information later. Do this through e-mail so people have to register for your newsletter.
Tip 4: Give special discount to followers on social media
Share discount codes through social media which are valid for a short period. This gives customers an extra reason to purchase at that specific moment. Alternate this with discount codes that apply for a longer period.
Tip 5: Create a distinctive holiday category
Create special pages such as “Gift ideas for Christmas” or “Christmas offers”. Add products to these pages with a special discount or which fits well as a present for this holiday. This ensures your visitors arrive directly at a convenient location.
