10 Ways to win this Holiday Season As A Seller

It's that time of the year again when everyone is getting ready to buy everything or plan to buy everything they can before it gets crazy. I personally prefer the craziness that comes along with the holiday seasons. I love watching people going back and forth shopping throughout the malls talking about shopping online too to save time, so they don’t have to visit every store or sit outside for days. This year is not going to be different from last – I am shopping online and I am sure many of you do too. Why? Well for obvious reasons it’s the fastest and most comforting of shopping methods, but because you can easily compare prices across sites and go with what you think is the best method for you.
 
This year why you are getting your shops ready we wanted to bring back the Top ways to get more sales this holiday. But before we start we thought we would begin with some new statistics for this year.

  • Did you know that Thanksgiving will be a record day for online sales? According to Fortune Magazine, “sales will rise 27% in 2014 to hit $1.5B.” I know a lot of this is in brick-n-mortar stores, but people are shopping online more than ever. Let’s get that share of the pie.
     
  • “Thanksgiving will also be the most mobile shopping day of the year in 2014 with the best online deals happening on Thanksgiving.” Crazy huh? What does that tell you?
     
  • But even bigger than all of this is the day after on Black Friday, so be prepared for those 2 days and the weekend following. It’s happening this year my friends.
We know it has been some time since our last post. We aren't going to make any excuses, so without further ado here you go:

  1. Get ready to roll: I am not talking about having products here or your store up and running, I am talking about you. Make sure you are mentally and physically ready for this holiday season. Get extra rest right now. Remember this is the most important time of the year. Got your game face? If not, go find it! This has not changed from years past.
  2. Make sure you order in more stock of your most popular items: Don't get caught with low stock and find yourself ordering in items while people are in the process of shopping on your store. You should be focused on marketing and selling during this time. Be prepared!
  3. Have a Holiday Discount coupon code or specials with deadlines: Everybody loves discounts and when you impose a deadline you create urgency, which is great for you.
  4. Be competitively priced, but don't drop your pants: There is no reason to give away all of your profits this year. People will buy and you will make money. Just trust it! You can make money selling online.
  5. Market to your existing client base: Get previous buyers to buy again! Utilize email marketing tools to send out holiday emails to your previous clients letting them know about holiday specials you are running this year.
  6. Ask for referrals from previous buyers: Marketing! Marketing! Marketing! Referrals are often your best friend. What's better then someone vouching for you who already had an experience with you?
  7. After reading this post make sure you start preparing if you haven't already. The time is NOW! If you have prepared, then double and triple check everything.
  8. Utilize your blog: Create a new post about the holiday shopping season and get active during this time. Maybe one post a week or if you don't have time at least 1-2 posts each month. It's all about content and you want your shoppers to know you are actively online especially right now. Make sure you have engaging titles too. Example: If you sell jewelry, try something like "Make sure she's happy this year! Rings she will surely love!"
  9. Respond faster to questions and comments: Shoppers are real quick to make decisions this year, so you have to be available to answer them sooner then you have before. The holiday season increases impatience levels.
  10. Have fun: Just like anything else you do in life make sure you have fun. It really isn't all that worth it if it's not.
 
We wish each of you all the luck and blessings this holiday season. Share with us some of your experiences after the holidays are over. We would love to hear about them.

Hi there, we actually do exist. Tis true!!! :)
Did you contact us via our support system? We just checked and didn't see a note from you, so I hope it didn't get caught in our spam filter for example. Please send a note to supoort@addoway.com and we would love to help. Thank you.

Since I got no response with your "Contact Us," I'll try here.

I am trying for the third time to import my Bonanza inventory to Addoway. Each time, I get the same error: Your unique string was not found. I checked, and the string is certainly there in the description of one of my items. How can I make this work? Looking forward to getting a response this time (I hope).

Traffic Updates have been sitting on your homepage for 47 hours without movement.
I see sellers main gallery images missing a photo to their ad.
Is this really a true operating selling site?

Hey, what's wrong with your site?
Have you even bothered to look at your homepage?
Cannot even shop since ads appear frozen or weird with missing pictures.

whatsitsgalore | May 6th 2017 at 1494116293

I've tried every possible method to contact you. Thumbnails are not working on the site. I can't create an ad or edit without the thumbnails disappearing. Which means potential customers can't see the items. I do wish someone would answer, either here, or on Twitter, or Facebook, or via email (I've tried them all).

I am wondering if everyone's credit card and privacy was compromised on this site since it appears there is no running traffic from the homepage. Online Identity theft frightens me.

Thanksgiving will be a record day for online deals? As per Fortune Magazine, "deals will rise 27% of every 2014 to hit $1.5B." I know a great deal of this is in block n-mortar stores, Dissertation Writing Services however individuals are shopping on the web like never before. We should get that offer of the pie.
