Prep Your Ecommerce Site. Ecommerce sales are expected to grow 16.6% over last year’s sales. The holidays are not the time for you to discover that there is a fatal flaw in the ecommerce portion of your site. It pays to spend time and resources making sure that your ecommerce functionality is flawless. If your clients have trouble buying from you online, rest assured that they won’t hesitate to move on to your competition.

Don’t Be a Scrooge With Your PPC Budget. Holiday sales season could be a make-or-break time for your business. That’s why you should consider upping your PPC budget.
