Retailers – Need Promotional Idea For The Holidays?

Any retailer who has ever asked me for advice about marketing their business or about what they should do at the CHA shows, has likely heard me rave about the genius of retail consultants and speakers Kizer & Bender. In their writing, seminars & consulting, Rich Kizer and Georganne Bender deliver advice to retailers that is very doable and makes sense for businesses of all sizes. And as a bonus, they never fail to do it in an entertaining way!

The critical holiday sales season is right on top of us, and retailers must take advantage of it to be successful. As usual, Kizer & Bender are here to help, with their new e-book “Jingle Bells Christmas Sells: Events, Promotions & Tips for the Holiday Season“, available on their website for $24.95. Co-authored with their Australian counterpart, Debra Templar, the book is designed to give retailers all the tools and information that they need to maximize their holiday sales and have a successful holiday retail season.

Why is a successful holiday season so important to retail businesses? According to Kizer & Bender, the holiday season quarter accounts for 36% of a retail business’s sales, and represents the highest level of profitability for those businesses. Get the holidays wrong and your whole year is wrong. Do you know the origin of the term “black friday”? It’s called that because the sales on the Friday after Thanksgiving were usually when most retailers finally became profitable for the year.

The holiday season is a critical time for retailers. Don’t turn down the chance to get wonderful marketing advice from seasoned experts like Kizer & Bender and Debra Templar when you can most use it.
