Some bloggers wait until the last minute to get their blogs updated for Christmas. Wrong! There are many people who are early Christmas shoppers and are online right now. You could be losing profitable opportunities as you wait. There are bloggers who are one step ahead who promoted “Christmas in July” featuring their products or services. The following are 3 easy ways to get your blog ready for Christmas today!
Send the message to your readers that Christmas is coming soon. It doesn’t mean that you have to remind your readers with each post you write. A great example of doing this is to get a holiday countdown widget for your blog. Do a Google search for a free countdown widget and you’ll find many to choose from. Choose one that will work with your blog and place it at the top of a sidebar. A subtle message will have your readers thinking they need to start their Christmas shopping soon.
It’s never too early to start holiday decorating your blog! Get your audience into the holiday spirit by changing the blog banner. Find a graphic designer from your social network to design one for you. If you can’t afford the price of a graphic designer, see if someone is willing to trade their design services for Christmas advertising on your blog. You can also change the look of your blog by simply changing the blog template. Find a holiday background to feature on your blog.
Start monetizing your blog with Amazon. There are many products to choose from that you can integrate into your posts on a daily basis. Always feature items that are related to the niche of your blog. For example, if you run a freelance writer’s blog, suggest a great book for writers. You might be surprised to find out that people like gift recommendations. Also, add an Amazon widget on the sidebar of your blog with your favorite gift suggestions until the holidays. It’s never too early to get started with your Christmas campaign!
