Holiday Week Quick Tip #1: Shipping
Some of you may have already finished holiday preparations. Others, like me, may have a long way to go.
If you’re like me, and you’re looking forward to a chaotic week, please remember this maxim: There is profit in panic.
I’ll be publishing a few quick tips this week, in the hopes that it will help you avoid pain and loss.
Tip #1: Do some research before believing shipping dates and rates.
Amazon, Walmart, Target, etc – probably safe bets. They’re not perfect, but these are massive companies with great customer service.
However, there are a ton of smaller internet companies who are vying for your dollars this week. Before you complete a panic purchase with these smaller companies, would be good to take 5 to Google. Look into their customer reviews. See if they have shipping guarantees.
Better to do a little bit of research now instead of trying to find out what happened to that special gift and realizing you got taken or the company literally couldn’t deliver.
