Have you finished all your holiday shopping yet? Have you been taking advantage of the discounts offered exclusively on social media sites? If you still have yet to finish your holiday shopping and plan on purchasing online items, tomorrow is the last day to really guarantee that your gifts will arrive by Christmas. Both online stores and consumer can really take advantage of this and profit in the end.
While we have passed Black Friday and Cyber Monday, the week before Christmas eve, which happens to be Thursday this year, is known as Free Shipping Day. It is the second annual event according to FreeShippingDay.com, which is about promoting free shipping and guaranteeing arrival before Christmas Day.
At the time of writing this, 703 businesses have registered to participate in tomorrow’s event and more are expected to join before midnight tonight. For online businesses, this is a great way to get free advertisements. A logo and link to your site will appear on Free Shipping Day’s website, along with being promoted throughout the web, and a Press Release expected to come out by the website. Thousands are expected to search the site tomorrow, which even if it doesn’t help you tomorrow, it could help you gain a potential future client. It is absolutely free to add your store to the list, with the only restriction being that you must offer free shipping Thursday and guarantee it’ll be there by Christmas.
Last minute holiday shoppers will be rewarded with free shipping, which sometimes can be worth it for those larger, heavy items, like that nice 50″ TV. With hundreds of stores to shop from, even if you are done, it may be worth it to check out the site for some great discounts on everyday items.
