How to get your online store ready for the holiday season?

Holiday retail sales events are arriving. Customers are gearing up for the shopping marathon so retailers need to prepare their eCommerce site in anticipation of the holiday season. Many people put off buying until the holidays expecting great deals and offers on their favorite items. Be it Black Friday or Cyber Monday, the number of visitors is guaranteed to grow during this time.
