Holiday marketing campaigns can make you want to pull your hair out. Each year the ads and sales start earlier than the year before, so it's important to have a clear idea of what your holidays sales and marketing campaign will look like.
If you're lucky, you will be so busy filling orders that you won't have time to do your own marketing campaigns. Here are a couple of resources that help you organize your business, find quick gifts, and still rock out an awesome holiday season.

Amazon is one of the largest shopping platforms for the holiday season. The convenience factor in being able to find and purchase anything you need from the comfort of your own home has literally changed the way we shop. There are even certain goods and services that give you the option for automatic renewals; which is perfect for the busy business owner attempting to juggle multiple tasks at once. For added convenience, you can even ship gifts, subscriptions, and gift cards straight to your clients or staff members.
