Don’t Forget Social Media and Your Website:

Don't be a Grinch online! Your virtual presence is often the first point of contact for clients. Share the magic on social media with pictures of your festive window displays and decorations.

Encourage clients to share their Christmas transformations with selfies on your social media channels.
