Before you say no or turn thumbs down on these suggestions; consider these thoughts.

You can definitely increase your revenue and reduce both your internal and external costs and here’s how.

Take it from me! I have been an accessibility awareness consultant and advisor since 1998 and I continue to help companies to increase their revenues, reduce their costs, and reach hidden consumer markets!

Now as a sight loss coach I am helping consumers with sight loss to become more aware of their environment and their requirements and this is helping companies to have a better understanding of how they need to plan and execute their initiatives.

One thing is for sure! Now that we are returning to semblances of normalcy, you can certainly use this to create accessible ways for your clients and customers to feel comfortable when attending holiday activities.

Here are some suggestions to get you started:

  • Make sure that your attendees have easy access to masks if needed, hand sanitizers and wipes, and create comfortable spaces for social distancing.
  • Spend some extra money to advertise your holiday activities as being safe to attend.
  • Find ways to focus a bit more on activities for kids and ensure that your activities include social distancing and as mentioned above.
  • Maybe you would like to think of returning to some of those non high tech activities?
  • Creativity and special advertising need to be factored in.
  • Concentrate on the senior population, kids, and clients with disabilities.

This should be great food for thought.
