Need a little extra boost to help get your creative juices flowing for the Christmas blogging season? You’ve come to the right place. 🙂
Christmas is a huge opportunity for bloggers. The biggest reason is that during the holiday season, people are looking to BUY. In fact, one source says that households spend about $1,536 this time of year. That’s a lot of revenue, and it presents a unique opportunity for you to share gift ideas and other products with readers who really want to know what you recommend.
It depends on your niche, of course, but some bloggers may actually find their traffic and audience interest increases over the Christmas period, especially if your topic targets an audience that is looking to solve a specific holiday problem or pass time online as they travel and take a break from their normal schedules.
