Christmas ‘To Do List’ for Small Businesses

December 21, 2010

Everyone has their Christmas list, but this one has a twist. It isn’t a ‘wish list’, it’s a ‘to do list’.

1. Thank Your Employees – Taking time to thank each of your employees with a note or ‘pat on the back’ goes a long way.

2. Thank Your Customers – Everyone gets cards, how about a call (maybe a visit) from you to your top 10 customers?

3. Charity Remember the community you serve. What can you do to give back? Toy drive? Food drive? Fund raising? Involve your employees too. It was amazing to see the camaraderie that was inspired from a toy drive at one company.

4. Social Media – You may be taking time off for the holidays, but not all of your customers will be watching football bowl games and eating turkey. Let them know you’re thinking about them and keep the posts/tweets/etc. coming. This may be the only way you’ll be able to reach some of your customers during this time. You’ll also demonstrate consistency and dedication. Not bad qualities in a small business.

The holidays are hectic and crazy, but taking the time to remember these ‘to dos’ help remind us of the important things about being a small business owner – employees and customers!
