Eventhough you'd prefer to turn off your computer and set your mobile devices into airplane mode during the vacation season, that doesn't mean everyone does so. Your website might have some casual visitors even during the hottest heat wave. I bet you switch your email's out of office -autoreply on, but have you done the same to your website?
Website is a great way to let people know about any exceptions in your operations. For example, if you do not reply to contact requests at all during the vacation season, be sure to tell that and the date when you will be back in business.
If your website has a contact form that allows the site visitor to send you a message, add vacation info beside it as well. Thereby can the sender prepare for a longer response time.
If you are taking calls and/or text messages during your vacation, mention that too (and your number, of course). On the other hand, if the general vacation season has no effect on your operations, it is not a bad thing to tell the site visitor about it as well.
By clicking the navigation area of your Oidom site in editor view, you can find the Info row option from the left sidebar. By enabling it, ribbon-like element is added to the top of your website. There you can add a compact info text that shows up on every page of your website. If you need to provide some extra info, you can add a separate page for it and link that to the content of info rows. You can find quick guide to info row from our support site.
You can adjust the colors of the row from the settings. Try to make the element as distinctive as possible from the rest of the page so that it cannot go unnoticed. Slightly brighter attention colors work well there, but be sure to make sure the text also stands out as well.
Remember to republish your site after enabling the info row. Otherwise it won't show up!
It is a good idea to update information about the arrangements for the vacation season also on your social media channels. This way the information reaches easily both your regular followers and casual profile visitors. This is the time when you can use your beautiful flower pictures or breathtaking scenery snapshots as a illustration of your post, even if they are not usually part of your business communication.
It is also not a bad idea to add an article to your website with summer greetings. And if you wish, you can kill two birds with one stone and share that article also to Facebook.
Unlike we humans, websites don't need rest. They are ready to serve site visitors 24/7/365. To keep your Oidom website up and running, you don't need to worry about a thing. We at Oidom support team will take care of your website.
However, if during your holiday, you remember that you forgot to update the important phone number on the website or the opening hours are wrong, no worries. With Oidom editor, you can edit all the content of the website also on your mobile device's browser by logging in via app.oidom.com.
If you want, you can also add a link to Oidom directly to the home screen of your mobile phone. On most smartphones it happens like this:
