1. Newsletters

Whether it's a paper flyer or an email, this is a great time of year to re-introduce yourself to your past customers. Mock something up with a Christmas feel and make sure to include your Christmas promotions and opening hours. Think about inserting flyers into your local newspaper for optimal impact.

2. Decorate

It goes without saying that you should decorate your premises for Christmas, but consider giving your website and social media a festive makeover as well. It's good for SEO and reminds your customers that you're active online. 

3. Christmas ads

Join John Lewis, M&S and Lidl by creating a signature ad this Christmas. Make sure to reserve your place in The Southern Star's "Christmas in..." range of magazines which cover towns all over West Cork including Dunmanway, Clonakilty, Bandon, Inishannon, Batnry, Skibbereen, Kinsale, Rosscarbery, Leap, Glandore, Union Hall and Castletownbere.

4. Get involved

Make sure to get involved in local events this Christmas. Contact your local Chamber of Commerce for information on the turning on of Christmas lights, festive fairs or parades which could give you the opportunity to meet new customers.
