For your best clients and customers, you may want to have exclusive deals and flash sales set up so that they feel even more valued by your company. This is when email lists are key as you can market directly to them with exclusive offers only for those who sign up.

If you have a slider on your home page, make sure the first slide is something holiday specific so that your customers know you’re in the spirit!
