OrderMotion, Inc., the leading provider of on-demand, direct commerce solutions for small-to-medium-sized merchants announced the continuation of its popular "how-to" Webinar series that is helping merchants get their businesses ready for the upcoming holiday season.

The holiday season is an extremely important time of year for many merchants. For some merchants, the holiday period can account for up to 60% of annual sales and up to 75% of all profits. Merchants who are prepared to fully take advantage of the opportunities the holiday season brings can achieve significant competitive advantage and can position themselves for dramatic growth.

Part one of the Webinar series took place on August 16, 2007 and focused on "Effective Email Marketing: The Dos and Don'ts that will impact your bottom line." If you missed the first airing, you can replay it at your convenience here. The next Webinar in the series , "How to Improve Fulfillment and Customer Service to Reduce Costs and Increase Profitability" will discuss how companies are handling the challenge of keeping your backend fulfillment costs from eating into your profitability during the holidays.

The Webinar will feature industry expert Curt Barry, who will share his expertise on how to get a business "Holiday Ready" by examining such vital processes such as benchmarking, fulfillment center layout and design, workflow improvement, and managing inventory. Also speaking on the webinar is VP of SitStay.com Kent Krueger, an OrderMotion customer, who will be presenting the customer point-of-view about fulfillment and customer service during the holiday rush.
