If 2020 hasn’t convinced consumers they should try CBD, I don’t know what will. It’s been a lot. A trifecta of disasters have culminated to create our lifetime’s strangest holiday season—the pandemic, social unrest, and the economy, oh my!
Not to make light of a hard time for so many—consumers are walking around with a lot of concerns and retailers don’t know what to expect. It’s been an overwhelming year for so many people.
Some marketing data said to expect a slight increase in holiday retail sales. In September, marketing data research firm Deloitte reported U.S. holiday retail sales should rise 1 percent to 1.5 percent, from $1.1 trillion in 2019 to $1.147 trillion, between November and January 2021. Still this year, customers will be keeping their budgets in mind and looking for special gifts over a pandemic-extended shopping season.
Some simple things could add holiday flair to your website or store:
- Holiday-flavored, themed, and scented products are always an easy choice, or upsell, for customers buying non-holiday related products.
- Sample sets or curated collections are great gifts for CBD newbies who don’t know what they like yet.
- A wide price range will ensure you have products for the budget-minded and the splurge buyer.
- Be merry! A small giveaway or even a holiday greeting included with shipment might go a long way to create goodwill, because everyone could use a smile.
- Shoppers love to save time – consider complimentary gift wrapping and promote it everywhere.
Help your customers have a chill holiday with hemp and CBD products that will make amazing gifts, bring cheer and tranquility, ease inflammation on a long winter’s night, and promote well-being. Isn’t that what the holidays should be all about?
