Spiced Cranberry & Bourbon Fizz

 

I love this time of year. The holidays have always felt magical to me. Whenever I think of Thanksgiving I immediately think of cranberry. My favorite Thanksgiving food is those canned cranberry slices, which I know is pretty odd. It’s probably the only dish on the table that involves no cooking or prep whatsoever, but they’re just so damn good!
So when coming up with a Thanksgiving cocktail I knew I wanted to work in the taste of crisp cranberries that are both sweet and tart. This recipe calls for a spiced cranberry simple syrup which is super easy to pre-batch and can be saved for later use! Pre-batching cocktails is always a great idea for easy holiday entertaining too.

 

For the syrup you’ll need:

1 cup water
1 cup sugar
1 cup whole cranberries
2 tbsp whole cloves
2 cinnamon sticks
pinch of nutmeg

Bring the water and sugar to a boil. Once the sugar has dissolved add in the cranberries and spices. Boil for 1 minute then remove from heat and let this steep for 10 minutes. Strain the mixture into a glass jar (for later storage) and cool before use.

 

Now it’s time for the cocktail! You’ll need:

2 oz bourbon
1 oz cranberry clove simple syrup
Club soda

Combine bourbon and simple syrup over ice and top with club soda. Stir and top with cranberries and a star anise. Enjoy!

  • Building the website of your dreams takes time.

Anyone can purchase a template.

Anyone can register a domain.

But having a website that is strategically designed to land more inquiries in your inbox takes strategy, goal setting, research, planning, and experience.

If your website was designed with a “set it and forget it” mentality…

If you never check or update your website because it’s a hassle to maintain…. If your website isn’t generating leads or acting as an ASSET to growing your business…

Then postponing a website redesign will only be delaying the results you need to grow your company.

  • Your website is not a static business tool.

A strategically designed website has the potential to generate leads and convert visitors into customers.

Perhaps it's to re-evaluate the results you COULD be getting from your website.

Every week I talk with business owners who come to me with websites that stress them out and are a headache to maintain.

Their website is not generating leads and they’re hesitant to direct clients to their website because it’s outdated, not mobile-friendly, and doesn’t represent them like they professional they are.

This is not how a website should be serving their business.

These business owners know its time for a new website design but aren’t sure where to start or when.

Will it really be worth the money?

Today I wrote a blog post on why NOW is the perfect time for a website redesign. Yes, even before the holidays.

Postponing a re-design of a site that isn’t doing anything for your business means you’ll be postponing the results you NEED - more leads and more sales.

Get the link in my bio for the post and then let me know - if you could have your DREAM website, what results would it be creating for your business?

  • Why is no one buying from your website?

You probably have a great offer. In fact, it might be the best one you’ve had yet. But why is no one buying it?

When it comes down to it, there is one main reason that motivates consumers to purchase.

What’s in it for them.

When presenting an offer, business owners tend to talk about the tech aspects or the facts/details of the offer rather than the BENEFITS of the offer.

How much time it’s going to save their clients, how much money and frustration is going to save them.

It’s not clear what is in it for them.

Take Action: Take your top offer, your main service, and re-write it to only talk about how your client will BENEFIT from this service. How it’s going to change their lives. Talk about how their life was before using that product or service and how it’s going to be after they use that product or service.

  • Now that we smack dab in the middle of the holiday shopping season it is the PERFECT time to take a quick moment and look over your website. 
When was the last time you read through each page?

Ask yourself these questions:

Are my best, most compelling offers at the top of my site?

Is the copy clear and concise?

Are there clear next steps for my website visitors to take?

Do my visitors have all the information they need to make a purchase?

Take Action: Set aside 30-60 minutes this week to review and make changes to your website. Need some help? Send me an email (link in profile) or a DM.

  • Last year 49% of all holiday online shopping were done on mobile devices.

That means that smartphone shopping accounted for $2.1 billion in sales.

BILLION.

Cash money. *jaw drop*

If your site isn’t optimized for mobile devices then it has the potential to turn off customers.

Which is really not a great thing! At all!

If you’re ready for a website that looks good on ALL devices and is strategically built to make more sales - this is exactly how I help my clients.

Let’s bump up your holiday website sales STAT.
