June 30, 2021

It seems like, almost every day of the year, the internet is celebrating something from more weird celebrations like Fun at Work Day, and the National Tortilla Chip Day, to the more traditional like Valentine’s Day and Christmas.

Nowadays, the holidays are considered one of the most meaningful seasons of earnings. They are a huge opportunity to make sales, because who doesn’t want to give something lovely on Valentine’s, or something funny and delicious on Thanksgiving? Turn the gift-buying mode on!

The New Year is just a few days away. We advise you to start planning the marketing strategy for your print-on-demand business. Having a content strategy for your social media platforms will help your brand recognition in your future customers, will save you time when thinking about the types of content you want to publish, and will help boost your sales.
