Spruce up your logo for the festive season, with the addition of a Santa hat like in the example below, or something equally jolly. Speak to your designer or developer on what will work with your logo.
Festive Imagery & Colours
You might want to give your website a little seasonal spruce up, by introducing some festive colours, and imagery to evoke the time of year. Make sure to speak to whoever manages your website, and make sure your images are sized and optimised correctly.
Create a sense of urgency, or keep users aware of you final order dates, shipping dates, or sale end dates. Or just have a timer counting down the days until Christmas Day. Make sure to get this booked in with your developer, in advance of when you want the countdown to begin!
Ensure your social media posts are equally festive. Do you need to get graphics in the various sizes required for each social channel briefed and made?
For those sending out Christmas emails, how about a festive animated graphic that can be placed into your emails? Whether you pronounce it gif or jif, these can add visual impact, and make an otherwise static email, really standout.
Got a big sale coming up? Don’t forget to get your graphics ready for your website, promotional emails, and social media.
A Festive Cursor
In this example, Elementor have used a candy cane, but you could have baubles, gifts, trees, bells, or a Christmas stocking.
A Unique Game Or Special Feature
How about something fun and different like a Christmas HTML5 game, or Christmas e-card generator?
You can try out a game we created last year for our client Bakels, here.
Christmas Themed Content
Last one on the list. Don’t forget about written content. Is there any useful Christmas related content you provide your users with, relevant to your industry? Gift guides, survival guides, special recipes, information on services specific to the time of year?
There are just a few ideas to get you thinking about what you can do with your site during the Christmas 2021 buildup. If you need any development or design help implementing Christmas features, get in touch and we can add a bit of festive magic to your WordPress website.
