Turn Your Love of Christmas Into an Online Business

Do You Love Christmas?

Christmas is fun.  It is the most joyous time of the year.  Christmas is when everyone takes some extra time to think about what is truly important.  Christmas time brings joy, warmth and laughter to all of our lives.   Do you answer “yes” to these questions?

  • Do you love everything Christmas?
  • Is Christmas your favorite holiday?
  • Do you love the anticipation and excitement that Christmas brings to your home?
  • Are you obsessed with Christmas?
  • Do you wish you could celebrate Christmas year around?
  • Are you sad when Christmas is over?

Christmas does not just have to be only in December.   If you love Christmas, you can keep the spirit of Christmas alive in many children and families year round.  You can share the joy of this festive occasion year round.  Let me show you how you can share the true meaning and spirit of Christmas with everyone anywhere…..

Make Christmas Your Business

That’s right.  How about turn your enthusiasm and passion for Christmas into a lucrative business?  You can open your own brick-and-mortar business with a Christmas shop that is open year around.  Your face-to-face shoppers will enjoy coming in and seeing all of your Christmas decorations, holiday cookbooks, toys and more.  During the Christmas season, your store will flourish.  You will have your largest volume of sales around the holidays.  But, what about the rest of the year?  During the off-holiday season, your sales will drop but you will still have the same amount of expenses.  You will need to pay monthly rent for your commercial property, pay for employee benefits and salaries during the off-season months and it could be hard to make ends meet.  There is another way that is easier and does not involve paying employees and rent during off-season and slow times.

The solution is to build an online Christmas store and website.  You could pay a small hosting fee for a website and bring the joy and magic of Christmas to the Internet.  You could write articles about Christmas and promote Christmas products that you love.  Write reviews of popular holiday gifts and Christmas treats.  Talk about the difference between Douglas Fir, Noble Fir, Fraser Fir and Balsam Fir and which type of Christmas tree is best and why.  Write an article about the history of St. Nick (also known as Santa Claus).  Talk about the tallest recorded Christmas tree which stands at over 160 feet.  You can express and share your enthusiasm for Christmas year-round by building a website and growing an online business.

Three Steps to Sharing Christmas Online

Step 1: Spread the Christmas Joy – Cyber Style!

The first thing you need is a website or a blog.

This step is not just for you to express your love of Christmas, this is to allow you to engage with your potential customers and will act like the most interactive Christmas store in the whole world.  This allows you to engage people in your Christmas passion, to talk about your holiday recipe ideas and decoration plans and the Christmas industry in general and build yourself as an authority online.

You can actually get some really awesome websites for completely FREE these days through services like SiteRubix.com.  Literally 10 minutes from now you can have a website that looks like the following, up and running and ready to share your Christmas spirit with all.

Step 2: Get Traffic to Your Christmas Website

You may have the absolute best holiday recipes and homemade Christmas ornaments to sell and other awesome Christmas toys you can promote through affiliate marketing.   However, unless you understand the process of Search Engine Optimization (SEO), you will not get any traffic.

In other words, without traffic (people coming to your website), you have no business.  You are in no better position than you are now; therefore, the very first thing you should do after you have your website is  get yourself training on how to get traffic within the online world.

Statistic Alert: There are 2 BILLION people online.

That is a lot of people and that is the sort of potential you have online.  If you are a woman there are 10 good reasons to build an online business.

So where do you get this training?   If you set-up a website already from Step 1, this will have granted you access to the Wealthy Affiliate community which is THE PLACE that you are going to get this training (included with your website).

If you already have a website for your business and you just want the training on how to get traffic (again this is totally free to get going), you can sign-up directly to the WealthyAffiliate.com website.

Step 3: Getting Help When Needed

Imagine having 1,000’s of experts within the online world you could rely on if you ever had any questions about your Christmas promotions or getting more exposure to your website.

Close your eyes and picture this. OK.  Open them.

This is a reality and getting one-on-one help from me is ALSO a reality.  I am an Ambassador with Wealthy Affiliate and as soon as you join, I will be there to greet you and help you get started.

  1. Good stuff, Stephanie! I’m curious to know some more of your ideas about things that could be sold or promoted through a online business about Christmas.

    You mentioned ornaments and toys, but are there other, more lucrative products as well? I myself am a bit of a Christmas moderate, so I am not too much aware of the varieties of avenues that an online Christmas business might create.

    Thanks!

    1. Hi Kiefer:

      Thank you for reading my post today. As far as lucrative Christmas products to promote through an online business, there are decorations, nutcrackers, holiday cookbooks, festive jewelry and clothing, gift wrap, dishware, quilts, blankets, linens, etc. There are many products that carry holiday and Christmas apparel. It is estimated that people spend more on Christmas then any other holiday. So, the potential is definitely there to make money from affiliate marketing with Christmas as the niche.

      Speaking of, I hope you and your family had a wonderful Christmas and I wish for you to have a Happy New Year.

  3. Christmas is perhaps the largest sales season for retailers, and what a good idea to promote an online store to avoid off season upkeep of a physical Christmas store. How will you promote sales in the off season? Will site upkeep be a chore if sales drop during the off season? Thanks and best of wishes, Geoff.

    1. Hi Geoff:

      Pleasure to meet you. Thank you for your kind words and for visiting today. In answer to your question as far as site maintenance being a chore during the off-season, I think by becoming a part of the Wealthy Affiliate community, there will be plenty exchanges of ideas for what to write about during the off-season. After all, the spirit of Christmas should not just be something we only think about during a couple months of the year, but something we try and keep in out hearts all year round. It is about the spirit of giving, showing thanks for those we are most grateful for and for remembering what is most important.
