CREATE GIFT CARD GIVEAWAYS OR INCENTIVES. Gift cards, even digital ones, are more popular than ever around the holiday season. In one survey, 43% of respondents said they planned on giving gift cards or certificates in lieu of other holiday presents.

Offer gift card incentives or giveaways for your loyal customers. They can make the perfect present for them and, in turn, your business. they’re always jumping up on my desk hoping for scratches. Simba is a bit of a loose cannon (he likes to attack the blinds when I’m not looking), but I love him just as much as Nala, and I’m looking forward to spending a lot more years with them both. Thanks to Safe Harbor, bringing Simba and Nala into my life was a breeze. When I visited the Humane Society, they had more than 75 cats available for adoption, and they also rehome dogs and other furry friends, like rabbits. In fact, since opening their doors in 1916, they’ve taken in more than 3,300 animals each year! When they run out of room in the shelter, they lean on a network of foster parents who keep the animals safe until they can find forever homes. If you have room in your life for a four-legged companion, please consider visiting Safe Harbor or at least browsing their website, SafeHarborHumaneSociety.org. If my experience is anything to go by, adopting might be the best decision you’ve made in a long time!

Even if your Christmas or holiday-themed cards don’t mail on time, you can still send personalized emails or social media messages to let your customers know you’re thinking of them this holiday season. Established customers can be responsible for up to 40% of a business’s sales, and your unexpected holiday greeting could keep your business in mind as they go about their holiday shopping.

Your customers are already in the holiday spirit, so why not indulge them with some seasonal trappings on your website? Festive holiday touches to your company logo or new webpages recommending holiday gift ideas can go a long way to attract customer attention. You don’t have to be the flashiest display on the block, but showing off your holiday spirit will spread cheer and goodwill.

A THANK-YOU TO SAFE HARBOR HUMANE SOCIETY

They Helped Me Adopt My First Kittens!

I’ve never really been a cat person — not more than I was a dog person, at least — but that all changed this summer when two little kittens padded into my heart and home. It all started this August when I stopped by my former wife’s place in Kenosha to pick up some things for our son. I noticed that one of her rooms was blocked off, and when I peeked in, I got my first glimpse of the five sweet kittens she was fostering for Kenosha’s Safe Harbor Humane Society. She offered to let me play with them, and two in particular stuck out to me for their friendliness and quirky personalities. Just a few days later, I contacted Safe Harbor and claimed them! The adoption process was simple, and soon Simba and Nala were mine. I’ve never owned cats before, and I was a bit worried about how we’d all get along, but everything turned out just fine. They were already litter-box trained, and they’re as smart and friendly as any dog. They’ll come right up to strangers, and when I have clients over,
