As most of our in person holiday shopping traditions have been put on hold this year, BizX wants to make this holiday season as accommodating and successful for you and your businesses. You have extraordinary products and employees to reward. Now more than ever, we want to make this holiday season as seamless as we can, so here are 10 ways to use BizX for the holidays.

7. Use BizX to Budget for Business
Let's talk about business expenses. Before you start budgeting for 2020, ask yourself if you are fully leveraging your BizX membership. Are you planning on increasing your marketing efforts, revamping your website, renovating your restaurant(s), or looking to expand? What are your main business expenses and can you save that cash using BizX instead? Whether you've got the balance or want to take out a line of credit, make sure you're factoring BizX into your budget in 2020.
8. Seasons Greetings!
If you are looking for holiday cards, invites or corporate calendars—we have the best Washington and California printers in the business. Cut cash costs and use a BizX member to provide their expert services this holiday season.
9. Donate & Spread the Love
The holiday season is the time to feel grateful for our successes and give to those whom are less fortunate. To this end, you can find many ways to give in the BizX network. The King County Chapter of Habitat for Humanity, The Rivkin Center for Ovarian Cancer Research and Why Not You Foundation, to name a few. A donation of BizX dollars enables a non-profit to off-set operational expenses. BizX charities are then able to utilize BizX dollars in a variety of ways, creating real change and exponentially helping their bottom line. We encourage everyone to consider donating, if you can!
How To Account For BizX Donations
For accounting purposes, BizX donations are treated just like cash—tax deductible in the year they are given. THIS is a win-win!
10. PPE Essentials
One universal phrase this year has been "I/We never thought...". Well we at BizX never thought we'd be so prominently promoting PPE products instead of large Holiday party planning and hosting, yet here we are! We have a variety of business members keeping us safe with a variety of masks, thermometers, and hand sanitizers.
However you use your BizX this season or any other, remember this—we are here for you! If you don't see what you're looking for or need a hand, let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org!
