For retailers, nothing matters more than having a great holiday season. And, because things can get hectic by the start of Q4, we know that gathering up information about how to optimize marketing can be difficult. So, we did it for you! Being in New Orleans, we figured we'd put it in a holiday menu format to keep it simple. These are the easiest and biggest opportunities available for driving nearby online shoppers into your store right now.
