Webinar – Plan Now or Panic Later: Top Christmas Planning Mistakes to Avoid 

It may seem like you have plenty of time to prepare for the Christmas holidays, but many retailers start their holiday planning six months in advance. In addition to the frenzy of Christmas sales, you and your team will be faced with many high-pressure, last-minute decisions that could boom or bust sales.

Jim Davidson, Manager of Marketing Research for Bronto Software, will show you how changes in consumer shopping and buying habits have shaped the season and how any retailer needs to respond to meet these demands.

During this webinar, you will learn how to:

• Increase mailing frequency without annoying your customers or risking deliverability issues

• Build an enjoyable, engaging shopping experience for gifters and existing subscribers

• Recover from mistakes like site crashing or sending the wrong email

• Maximise sales and engagement on major shopping days

This webinar will show you how to get your holiday planning started, while also providing a set of monthly goals, as well as useful planning templates and guides.

When: 10.30am Thursday July 31st, 2014
