    • 10. Who we do it for
    • 11. Some thoughts from me about peak…
    • 12. For some categories online sales were the only reason year-on-year sales rose over the summer months. Online sales will drive peak trading too
    • 13. 112 million UK web visits on Cyber Monday last year - the second biggest online shopping day ever. This year: Cyber Monday - Dec 2nd Panic Saturday - Dec 21st Mad Monday - Dec 23rd
    • 14. Web penetration Web shopper 1996 Web shopper today
    • 15. Older customers buy online at Christmas
    • 16. Acquisition & Conversion
    • 17. Acquisition Marketing • Check SEO and PPC landing pages for out of stocks, price changes, offers etc – particularly if you are running last-minute promotions
    • 18. Findability • Visitors will be coming to your site for the first time • A gift category • Stocking fillers • Compelling CTAs Bestsellers • Redirects for misspellings gift buyers might put into your search box
    • 19. Buyability • When’s your cut-off date? – Christmas is on a Wednesday • How will you highlight click & collect if this is an option after your delivery cut-off • Contingency plans – Royal Mail strike? • Gift messaging/gift wrap
    • 20. Site Performance • Regular checks for broken links, pages not found and download times – also optimise your Page Not Found • Don’t wait for customer complaints before doing anything about it – explain problems
    • 21. Mind your language
    • 22. Don’t forget…a customer’s not just for Christmas!
    • 23. Retention
    • 24. Retention Marketing • Trigger email campaigns… • For instance, you could offer customers who’ve purchased in the run up to Christmas with the first opportunity to buy merchandise once you go on Sale?
    • 25. Customer Service • Already ramped up your contact centre team to cope with the Christmas rush? • What about staff in stores who are trained to help customers order online? • John Lewis 50 Eleventh-Hour Elves in 5 biggest stores for panic Saturday
    • 26. Supply Chain • If you don’t have a single stock pool, how easily can you reassign stock to online?… the % of sales taken online tends to rise during peak trading
    • 27. January Sale (in December) • When are you going on Sale online? • Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day can be some of the top online trading days during peak while stores are closed
    • 28. Analysis • Even if it’s too late to act on your data during peak, make sure your site tagging is set up so you can analyse and improve next year
