Holiday shopping is in full force and it’s important to take advantage of all the crazy last minute gifts your customers will be buying for their friends and family.
If your store lends itself to some awesome gift ideas you should make it as easy as possible for customers to find exactly what they’re looking for… and if they don’t know what they’re looking for, make sure you point them in the right direction.
Offering customers a holiday gift guide is a great way to show off your best selling items and inspire potential customers to think of you as their “go to” holiday shopping (online) destination.
How do I create a Gift Guide?
If you’re a Shopify user you may be wondering how to set up your very own gift guide for the Holidays. You can use this for all different occasions like Valentine’s Day, Father’s Day any other gift giving themed events.
Knowing how to do this yourself, without the help of a developer is especially important for marketers and business owners who want to be able to act on their ideas quickly (and without the need for a middle man).
I made this short video tutorial to show you how.
In this video I also touch on my reasoning for not using a slider on your home page. Sliders can be bad for a number of reasons and I typically don’t recommend them especially for ecommerce sites.
