Why you should decorate and brand your space for the Holidays

Try to imagine yourself out and about during the holiday season. The streets are lined with dozens of people, shuffling in and out of stores, their arms filled with packages and bags. There is the smell of Christmas and the holidays in the air and in every store and everything is decorated.

In South Africa we celebrate more than just the holidays, it's also Ke Dezemba! The end of the year, the time for celebrations.


 

Holiday decorations matter

Getting people into your business during the all-important holiday season is all about marketing. How do you set yourself apart from the rest of the competition? This is especially true for the smaller, independent stores as they compete against the larger stores. What sets you apart?


Studies have been done about this very thing and, overwhelmingly, they show that more than likely you are going to walk into the store that has the decorations. There is something about the warm feeling that comes over shoppers and customers when they see holiday decorations that cause them to want to step inside and look around. More importantly, these customers tend to want to buy. Sure, there are plenty of people who want to complain about how early the decorations go up, but their spending habits show they prefer them.


Types Of Decor

You can easily revamp the look of your space with various budget-friendly items to help you stand out, these include but are not limited to:
