It’s the most wonderful time of the year, but shipping delays and supply chain shortages this year could be a major roadblock for those who tend to leave holiday shopping to the last minute.
It’s important for influencers and creators to be aware of holiday shipping deadlines when crafting holiday content, so followers have access to products that will be delivered on time for the holidays.
According to the National Retail Federation, 73 percent of shoppers prefer standard delivery (3–5 business days) compared to the 47 percent of shoppers who would rather have same-day or next-day direct delivery.
So what can you do as an influencer to help your fans and followers? Share your holiday content now and encourage urgency by sharing these important holiday shipping deadlines!
