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.

There is nothing better than being able to plan some holiday activities that are made accessible to very important growing groups of consumers. These are seniors and persons with disabilities.

Here are some pointers:

So here are some tricks, hints, and tips to get you started and thinking:

  • Please bear in mind that both access to the activity as well as the content of the activity are both important.
  • For seniors, they generally like and enjoy attending activities where they can hear what is going on and see what is happening.
  • Persons who are blind/vision impaired enjoy attending activities where they can hear what is going on around them.
  • For persons with other disabilities and for those mentioned above, access to locations is very important.
  • Signage, layout, and continued Covid requirements should be considered.

I think that this is a great way to get started.
