Making the most of the holidays

Taking some time off over Christmas and New Year? Good for you, you deserve it.

But as small business owners, we never really get time off, do we? There’s always an email to be responded to or paperwork to be completed, regardless of the date.

So with a few days still to go until the big day, what can you do to make the most of your precious time off?

– Set up a tweet, Facebook status or email in advance to wish your followers and customers a happy Christmas on the 25th using software such as Hootsuite, TweetDeck or MailChimp (or others!).

– If you haven’t already, plan your January marketing now. Tease your customers with sales or special offers and get everything in place to try and avoid the expected January slump.

– No matter how busy you are, make sure you take at least a couple of days off and recharge your batteries. It will help you to get back on track and feel energised to move onwards and upwards in 2015.
