It may seem too soon to you to begin making mighty preparations for the holidays, but rest assured that time is of the essence and you need to go ahead and get everything lined up now so that your dropship website will be up to the challenge of increased traffic.

Getting Your Dropship Website Ready

Even though the economy is still in the doldrums, internet retail analysts are predicting big things for this holiday season. In fact, you might say that optimism is in the air as more and more shoppers turn to the web for ease, convenience and often better deals than those available at brick and mortar stores.

Here is a checklist of things you need to check out to make sure all is working properly before that extra traffic descends on your dropship website:

  • Decide beforehand what products you will feature for the holidays on your dropship website and make sure your product supplier will have them

  • Make sure that all of your landing pages are working right and that your site map and breadcrumb navigation is as it should be

  • Tweak your checkout process to make sure it’s speedy and efficient

  • Decide what promotions and marketing you’ll be focusing on for the holidays, including email marketing, and get everything mapped out and ready to go

  • Make sure that your security badges and symbols are prominently displayed as this will help tremendously in overcoming customer doubt and fear about buying online

  • Dress up your website and emails, also your social media pages such as your Facebook Fan Page, with holiday themes that will help put shoppers in the frame of mind to buy holiday gifts

  • Try to incorporate sales techniques that will help you sell more, such as bundling, cross selling and up selling

You can greatly increase your net revenue for the year with holiday sales on your dropship website!
