As we are all recharging from the first holiday of the season, giving Tuesday is a perfect time to reflect on all that we have, and in turn, all that we are able to give. November 27th, Giving Tuesday, can be a great time to use promotions, and have giveaways at your small business. Maybe those pesky items you couldn’t sell from last holiday season, or those extra products that you bought too many of! The holiday season is all about giving and your customers will appreciate you getting into the spirit as well! Below are some tips for your business to participate in Giving Tuesday!
- Offer a free giveaway with purchase of any item!
- Give a portion of a customer’s order to a local charity, they can always use donations during the holiday season
- Set up your own giving tree!
- Fill the tree with gift tags which specify gifts and supplies that can be bought in your store which will then be donated to people in need of these items!
Giving Tuesday is a great way to remind yourself and your customers that although you are in business to make a profit, you can be in the giving spirit as well! The holidays are a great time of year to promote your business, get the word out, and raise your sales. Use Giving Tuesday to your advantage and make sure you spread the word about all that you are offering!
Good luck and happy holidays!
