Are You Ready for The After-Christmas Sales Rush?
December 23rd, 2011 by Skip McGrath
Before I get into today’s post, I want to remind everyone that WorldWide Brands annual Christmas discount sale will end in a few days.
They set up the same discount for my readers as they did two years ago. If you use this link, you will get $50 off of the price. http://www.worldwidebrands.com/seasonsgreetings
They also offer a payment plan, but please note that the $50 discount does not apply to the payment plan.
The discount link is right to the shopping cart. If you want to read about Worldwide Brands or see their video, click here first but don’t forget to go back to the above link before you purchase if you want the discount.
Now on to our post:
For the past week our sales on eBay and Amazon have been humming along. It turned out to be a great holiday season –much better than we hoped. Then this morning it stopped. I am so used to hitting the computer in the morning and seeing orders coming in, that it was a disappointment this morning when we only had one order overnight.
It is now officially too close to Christmas to order anything from eBay or Amazon and get delivery –but get ready for the day after. Both eBay and Amazon are reporting record sales of Gift Cards –and those folks will be spending that money next week. In fact, last year I remember that orders started hitting on Christmas afternoon and kept up strong for the next three days.
The second half of the holiday selling season starts right after New Years Day and goes right up until Valentines Day. Last year, January was our second best month (after December). I think what happens is that people have put off spending money on themselves over Christmas and once its over they start up again.
So even if you still have merchandise that can’t sell in time for Christmas, get ready to move it out over the next few weeks.
Cheers and a very Merry Christmas to all of my readers.
