113 - 'Tis the season to start planning for the season that's just around the bend: those frenzied weeks of holiday gift shopping. Staying on the sidelines—offering no Black Friday, Cyber Monday or Small-Business Saturday specials—is a perfectly valid choice. But you may still have people looking to buy gift certificates for their loved ones. 

This week, Mandi Pratt from Greyboy Pet Prints and I talk about best practices for offering gift certificates, showing appreciation for your best clients, and why you should think twice before publicly posting holiday sales. 

What To Listen For: 

  • The potential pitfalls of selling gift certificates
  • Why you'll want an introductory email from the purchaser
  • The legal considerations for expiration dates
  • How Nicole makes her gift certificates look and feel like a *real* present
  • Why you should never sell gift certificates for specific products
  • Ideas for thank-you gifts for your very best clients
  • And after listening to this episode, if you're curious about Mandi's beautiful etchings, you can get one for yourself—or for your best client—at 30% off the regular price. Just use the code HOTD30 at checkout.

    Bob Saget's Here For You

    BOB SAGET’S HERE FOR YOU is a podcast that is like no other— For one, this podcast has guests who are friends of Bob’s, or just really interesting people who many of you know and love. Secondly, this podcast is unique because it goes inside Bob Saget’s mind, and then quickly filters out through his mouth. Bob has a way of calming people he has conversations with as well as being entertaining and often informative. Bob talks with his guests with genuine empathy and humor, while reaching his unusually diverse audience that he talks to as a friend, Bob is the dad with great advice, the irreverent funny guy who’s always there when you need a laugh, and the free-associative Bob who goes off on crazy tangents then returns to the subject at hand, as serious or as comedic as it may be, to wrap up each episode in a way only Bob can do. Because he really does believe, “He’s here for you."
