Is my site Ready for Christmas and New Year?

Last Update: December 16, 2015

Hello,

Soon it is Christmas and New Year, a top period for every shop and commercial activity I guess...
So, why not the affiliate marketing sector or the internet market in general?
I would like to do something with my website for the end of the year, but I don't know what exactly. And especially I don't know what works...
Maybe there are some general rules to approach such a period?

As you can see above, there is a complete Christmas theme available at ThemeForrest.
But that is a little bit over the top (I mean for my site and as a personal choice.). :-)
While I was searching for some pictures I found this site: http://www.hongkiat.com/blog/christmas-wordpress-plugins/
Here you can find 20 Christmas plug-ins to fancy your site, so that is my contribution to this topic... ;-)
(The ones I checked were free! )


But now my actual question or need:
Are there people with some good ideas to launch on their site for Christmas and/or New Year?
And did you already try this the previous years and what was the result?
Did someone has already put his site in a "Chrismas theme" and what did you change to do this? (Regarding plug-ins we have an answer...)

I am curious what the suggestions might be! :-)

Grtz,

Bert

Nice one Loes! And no other special actions? So actually not that much people do something?

I want to place a clickable Christmas card on the front page, directing to a post with a Christmas wish, kind of like the blog I wrote here

Thru the years i had in the other world:) ,if you going to promote any holiday , need to start at least 2 months in advance (depending on how much you want to do for the occasion) obviously the more you do the soon you want to start, to be able to hit the start date

Yes a good campaign needs a lot of preparation... I can imagine...
But then my question still remains: How are companies able to tackle everything that happens now? There are so many things...

it is a wonderful time of the year but just over so quickly so to make an impact it has to be something really dramatic!!!!!

Yes, I understand what you say, but how are other stores coop with this issue... In Belgium on 6 December it was "Sinterklaas" all stores are in function to that topic till then, before we had Halloween and on 25 December it is Christmas...
So, how do they do that? It goes very fast these days......

Starting more early with the preparation is certainly needed... :-)
But it is a learning curve after all.... ;-)

And it reminds me of how the Internet was in 1999.
