The Resilient Retail Game Plan Episode 120

5 Observations In The Run-Up To Christmas

Podcast show notes

We’re now into the golden weeks, the period where we see people spending the majority of their Christmas budget. With many ongoing economic issues, the increased cost of living and ballooning inflation plaguing the public, we can expect to see reduced spending this Christmas in contrast to last year – but after recently visiting the “Spirit Of Christmas” fair and attending “Stylist Live”, as well as a number of other markets and smaller events, the bustling crowds and the sheer number of carrier bags I’ve observed being carried around prove that people are still spending this season.

In episode 120 of The Resilient Retail Game Plan, I want to assuage your fears and give you some top tips when it comes to securing those sales this Christmas. We’ll dive back into the power of “micro-niches” and why it’s more important than ever to get really specific in order to appeal to your ideal customers. We’ll discuss how important it is to not make assumptions about your customer’s relationships to your brand and how to get as clear as possible on what it is that you’re selling. We’ll also look at the literal act of selling, how to avoid the ickiness and create a sales experience that’s positive for everyone, and I’ll also touch on those ever-important email lists and how you can encourage subscriptions through incentives.
