2020 Planning: The Ultimate Q4

2020 Planning: The Ultimate Q4

Welcome to Q4

This holiday season will be unlike any other, however, there is still a great deal of planning to be done. Typically, referencing historical sales data is a useful benchmark, but this year it is ok, and normal, if your sales don’t compare to last year. Instead, try to find ways that you can be of service to your customers and fill that void this holiday season.

Planning for Prime Day

Prime Day is just two weeks away, but there is still time to prepare:

  1. Get Prepared: How to leverage free resources and measure success
  2. Advertising: Find the most efficient advertising strategy for your budget
  3. Content: Review how to optimize your content ahead of Prime Day and the holiday season

This is the first time Prime Day hasn’t taken place in July, so it may be hard to predict. This year, Prime Day 2020 will kick off the holiday selling season, with a runoff period that will continue into January.
