Christmas Shopping - Are You Ready?

Last Update: October 25, 2020

Hey dear WAers, how are you doing today? Are you writing for your websites, researching or analysing the data? Or doing keyword research?

Do you know that Christmas will be here in just two months? Are you prepared with your website, in your niche? Even in this crazy time, in lockdown, people will still buy Christmas presents, and there will be probably more online sales than without the pandemic. Have you thought of how to use this to your favor?

I've always had problems with Christmas gift ideas when buying gifts for my family. I'm really not very innovative or full of ideas in this regard. But I know what presents I'd like to get and think it might be inspiration for others.

My original idea was to write an article with the best gifts for a health-conscious woman. But having a YouTube channel as well, I thought a video could even be better. So I've set up a list of "5 Christmas gift ideas for her" and extended the list with another 5 items, creating a blog post with 10 gift ideas.

It didn't take me too much time to create the list. I just thought of things what I'd like to have or what I already have but would like it if I didn't :)

You can make a list of the best Christmas presents in almost every niche apart from the MMO (maybe you can even there but I can't think of anything). If you have a website about dogs, you can create a list of best dog toys. If you have a website about health supplements, you can make a list of the best supplements for each family member. Just an example. It will be your list so you have to think what would the people you write for like to have.

Christmas, Halloween and Valentine's are times when many companies have big revenues. The sales numbers are huge! And you can have your piece of the pie too!

Just one simple blog post or a short video with a few slides will do. You may only record your voice, or add music and have some information on display.

Note: if you are making video(s), don't forget about SEO. Use VidIQ or TubeBuddy and learn some principles how to do video SEO.

It is such a shame if you upload videos regularly and don't do any SEO! There's no chance for people to find you if you don't do SEO.

Same as with blog posts, if you don't do on-page SEO as we are taught here, you have no chance!

You can see the video with gift ideas on my YouTube channel. I can't add the link here because of the WA rules but when you go to my WA profile, it's on the right. I would love to see your comments!

Let me know what you think!

Love
Lenka

Hi Lenka,
Thank you for this post.
Great information as Christmas approaches, & it is not too early to plan for the big day. .

I like your YouTube videos & subscribed.
Fortunately, I am not like some guys who shop on Christmas Eve LOL. The days will click past as we prepare for Christmas.

I am not yet at the stage of using my website to post about Christmas presents.

I understand, Denis, and last year I was at the same stage. But time goes by quickly and next year at this time you'll be ready :-)

Hi Lenka,

This year, the Christmas shopping season is starting early. eCommerce and online sales have boomed this year with more people shopping online. So Christmas will be big in the online marketplace.

I watched your Youtube video, and it was great. Some great gift ideas you laid out, so kudos on the video.

Great post- thanks for sharing! All the best,

-Eric

Hi Eric,
thank you very much for your nice comment. I'm glad you liked it.

My website and the YouTube channel are still too young to expect much in sales, but I'm happy to see it slowly growing. Just trying to get to 100 subscribers which enables you to show the name of the channel instead of the weird letters and numbers. We are at 91, not far off. So if you don't mind subscribing, it would make me happy :-)
I'd gladly return the favor if you want me to comment on any of your articles or whatever you'd need.

No problem, Lenka. I just subscribed to your channel. Looking forward to watching more of your videos.

I'll reach out to you if I need help or articles commented on.

Take care,

-Eric

I happened to read today on Facebook where someone said that if you are going to Amazon, don't be surprised if it gets overwhelmed with orders near Christmas. This was targeted at fellow shoppers but it makes even more sense for us as affiliates. So as Lenka says, the sooner the better.

Thank you for sharing this, Rosana. I'm usually very late with Christmas shopping, but this year I'm going to prepare in time.

Sounds like a great idea Lenka, as much as I would like to postpone the festive season, inevitably it will be with us sooner rather than later, so it would be prudent to be prepared.
Goooood, no, great advice on remembering to do your SEO.
We should compose the WA 12 days of Christmas 😂

Thank you, my friend!
I didn't get it with the 12 days of Christmas though, even after reading it five times :-)

It's a Christmas song. Starts with the line:
"On the 1st day of Christmas, my true love gave to me, a Partridge in a Pear tree" and then goes on through the entire twelve days of Christmas, with different items on each day (2nd day, two Turtle Doves, day three, three French Hens and so on)
We could change it to things we have in WA.
Just a thought, lol.

That's nice, I didn't know that! Thank you for the explanation, I have learned something new.

If you look up the tune and replace the words 'My true love' with 'Kyle and Carson' it actually works.
