Is your business open for the holidays?
I work for a non-profit to stop animal abuse so realistically we never shut our doors, even for the holidays. Is this something we can capitalize on? I'm curious to hear if you slow down business during the holidays or take a break completely. Thanks for sharing and happy thanksgiving week everyone.
As many services are closed on holidays, I think, it is better to work and a lot of customers are attracted by this fact.
It’s completely up to you to decide whether you should run your business for 24/7 or not. Being a web & app development & designing, and digital marketing agency, we slow down on weekends but are available online.
It’s easy to run online operations 24/7 but also consider the amount you need to invest for weekends over the benefits you’d reap.
If you have ample resources, you can easily go for 24/7 by allowing them to work in rotational shifts. These are the examples of the businesses that run 24/7
• Security monitoring companies
• Credit card companies
• Amazon and other suppliers such as Home Shopping Network

As a small business, you can't afford to miss a lead. So during the holidays, business calls get forwarded to my cell phone - and they get answered. If I can't answer immediately, there's always a prompt call back. This lands jobs, which lands long-term clients, which leads to referrals down the road. So even if you're not actually "working" during the holidays, you shouldn't disappear either. It could be costly.
As someone once pointed out "It's a Holi-DAY, not a Holi-Week, or a Holi-Month". As an Independent Insurance Agent and Financial Adviser, I need make myself available all year-round.
I slow down business during holidays, but before then, i give advance notice to all my clients. But should there be any emergency, i advice them to call free toll for skeleton services. This is because the customer is our concern.
Yes, I believe keeping your doors open for the holidays can be capitalized on because it shows people how dedicated you are to your cause, rain or shine.
I only slow down business during the holidays. My employees take their well deserved break but I keep communication lines open for our clients. I do make it clear that I'm only there to respond to their inquiries and not get started on any production work.
The question should be asked to the owners and see if it is alignment with the leadership goals.
I work as marketing consultant in medium company , In fact we don"t work on holidays but it happens many times I meet company owners or businessmen at anytime they ask me to go , they really appreciate that & I think its a good chance to use it since others don"t work on holidays .
We are closed for the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. I do not follow the modern credo of: "Our competition is working, so we have to". For me it is just an excuse to try to make more money (greed) at employees expense. I feel it is not the right thing to do so I don't do it. What you give out to employees you will get back twofold.
