Intro 

Houses are glowing with colorful lights, shopping centers are full of excited buyers, and the holiday spirit is in the air. Does that ring a bell for you? Yep, that is a magical Christmas shopping season! 

Almost every company is looking forward to Christmas and New Year in order to increase their sales and attract new customers. The time of Christmas and New Year is the most difficult because every customer wants to take the most of this shopping time and save (or spend) some cash. Retailers across all product categories compete with incredible deals to clear out their stock.

In large stores, sales are held regularly, regardless of the season. But Christmas sales cover absolutely all stores, from small shops to boutiques that sell ‘haute couture’ things. Everyone has a chance to get a significant discount on the product they like.

Many online stores make pre-holiday sales to encourage customers to buy gifts for friends and family. Even if your product is not very suitable for a gift, customers are waiting for bonuses, discounts, and free delivery. They are warmed up by the festive excitement and spend money willingly. As a vendor of website templates or bundled holiday graphics, you should definitely make the most of Christmas 2020.

Christmas Sales Timing

In the United States, the Christmas shopping season starts in October. Some companies start their Christmas marketing campaigns after Halloween. Black Friday is traditionally the day most people associate with the beginning of the Christmas shopping season. 

In Canada, merchants begin advertising campaigns just before Halloween and step up their marketing following Remembrance Day on November 11. In the UK and Ireland, the Christmas shopping season starts from mid-November, when the street Christmas lights are turned on.

As the phrase goes, repair your cart in December… Those who have the habit of preparing everything in advance are in a scoring position. As a vendor of digital products, make sure to upload your products in September – October if you want to join the Christmas sale.  

Before purchasing, consumers actively study the market and search for information about products and prices on the web. Therefore, brands and retailers need to take care of the visibility of their offers in the search in advance.

Here is a short explanation on how to use the table properly.

Key is a keyword and topic that is searched in Google.

Keyword Difficulty (KD) is the difficulty of a keyword, and the lower this difficulty level is, the easier it is to rank for this key. KD score is calculated by taking a weighted average of the number of linking domains to the current top-10 ranking pages and then plotting the result on a logarithmic scale from 0 to 100. It is useful for estimating how difficult it may be to rank for, but keep in mind that it does not tell the full story because it is based on one ‘ranking factor’- backlinks (domains).

Take it with a pinch of salt and always investigate the SERPs further before pursuing a keyword. We suggest creating the products for the keys with the difficulty 0-10.

Volume is the popularity of a search query on Google. This metric shows how many times per month people enter this query in the search engine. 

What is important to understand – it is about the number of “searches” and not the number of “people.” Most SEO tools show the average number of monthly searches. In addition, search volumes are always location-specific and show volumes for one country only. You can request information about any location.

Basically, your task is to choose the key with the highest volume and lowest keyword difficulty and build a product based on these metrics.
