Is Your Website Ready for the Holiday Rush?

For most, the holiday season is a time of joy, nostalgia, and giving back.

For those of us running online businesses, however, the major increase in consumer spending can lead to a major increase in stress and sleepless nights, meaning customer service can suffer.

With each passing year, more and more people choose to tackle their holiday shopping online, from the comfort of their own couches. In fact, of the nearly $2 trillion spent globally online in 2016[1], $682 billion was spent between November and December alone[2]! That's over one-third of ALL online sales in just two short, crucial months

With numbers like that, your website simply cannot afford to be anything less than perfect.

Undoubtledly, you’re going to see considerably more online traffic over the next couple of months. Avoid all the stress for everyone involved by streamlining your online customer service with the proactive power of ChatBeacon!
