The holiday season is a perfect time to host an open house in your business. Invite all of your customers and clients. Provide food and beverages as a show of appreciation. For example, you might put out several cheese plates and offer wine poured from a local vineyard. Then during the open house you can chat with your customers and demonstrate or inform them about your new products and services. They will walk away from the open house well fed and with new information about what your business has to offer. An open house also encourages potential new customers to stop in.
