    Holiday Tips For Your Store

    Time is fast approaching for this upcoming holiday shopping season. There are several things you can check to make sure your store is running optimally and is prepared for the increased traffic.

    While it would not be recommended to make major website changes this close to the holiday season, there are still several items you can check and/or improve on relatively easily. We recommend fully testing your cart and checkout process to make sure everything is working as expected. This includes having failsafes in place for shipping in case your primary carrier goes down. ShopSite offers an easy to configure backup system under Commerce Setup -> Shipping in case your primary carrier goes down. This monitoring site that we offer will let you know if any of the major carriers are having issues with their system:

    Google can also offer you some suggestions for site improvements. Their page speed tool can let you know if there are easy things you can do to improve loading time. Additionally, you should be using Google Analytics to track conversions and ad revenue. Tracking ad revenue assumes that you are using Google shopping campaigns, which are a great way to drive targeted traffic to your site:

    Also, be sure to let us know if you’re expecting a tremendous increase in traffic beyond the normal holiday “bump”. If so, we will work with you accordingly to have everything ready in advance. If you’re a shared hosting client, this could involve migrating you to a VPS or dedicated server. If you’re already on a VPS / Managed Server, then we could look at additional hardware/nodes to accommodate your expected traffic burst.

    If you’re looking ahead toward more involved projects, two high priority items on your list should be to make sure that your website is responsive and served completed over SSL (https). We can assist with transitioning your website to run entirely over SSL if you are running ShopSite, Magento, or WordPress. Feel free to contact us for more details.
