How to Prep Your Shop for The Holidays

· ·

The holidays are here and business isn’t slowing down anytime soon — but you still want to make sure you get in ample time with your loved ones + make space for the rest of the priorities in your life. What’s a shop owner to do? While you’ll still likely be much busier than usual, there are a few best practices you can implement to make sure this season goes as smooth as silk.


First off, delegate.

We talk a lot about delegating (and how to best do it)  but it’s for good reason! A busy season like the holidays often calls for hiring a seasonal contractor or two to help in places you normally have covered. Think answering customer emails or stocking shelves if you have a brick and mortar. And don’t forget — Printed Mint dropships! You can view our Holiday Production calendar, here.


Second, set expectations up front.

 You’ll avoid a lot of inquiries and employee questions when you set expectations about this time of year up front. For example, on a product page make sure you embolden where it says shipping and delivery date expectations and in your email receipt and/or confirmation landing page, include if and when they’ll receive a shipping notification from your store. Don’t forget to also set expectations of employees as well to make sure everyone in your company is on the same page. 


Lastly, plan a stress-free reward. 

Keep in mind the light at the end of the tunnel! Plan a staycation or a few days of uninterrupted “you” time after the holidays to recoup and think of all you’ve done well this season. May we suggest digging into a juicy read or binging on a new TV show surrounded by decadent smelling candles + your fave refreshment?
