Sell gift cards! 

This year, many people aren’t traveling to see family and this means that gift cards are going to be in high demand. Offering gift certificates and gift cards will help bring in customers to your small business even after the holidays have come and gone.

Set up an e-commerce store 

If you are a brick and mortar business, shopping is going to look MUCH different for you this year. To ensure that your customers can still purchase your goods without having to brave the stores, make sure you have an e-commerce store set up on your small business’s website.
