3 Ways to Grow Your Direct Sales Business During the Holiday Season

If you are wanting to get your business off to a strong start or have decided to start your business back up, the last few months of the year are the best time to jump in!!   There are three things you can do that will get your business up and running.

 

1. Host a shopping event at your house. 

The holiday season is the prime time where people are going to be purchasing gifts, so why not take this as an advantage for your business and have them purchase from you?! Keep it simple but make it fun!  Have a theme with yummy munchies and drinks. Offer special discounts and do some really fun giveaways for anyone that hosts a party. Remember, this is also a time to give back to your customers!

 

2. Look for vendor events/trade shows in your area. 

They are everywhere during the holiday selling season!! People are out looking for great gifts for the holidays and in a party mood. Make sure to have a fun and inviting looking booth set up. Have some cute gift bags or wrapped baskets out for everyone that books a party with you. Do a little shopping yourself.  There are SO many great things at Holiday boutiques!


3. Book lots of parties by reaching out. 

Believe it or not…this is the time to party!!  People are in a party mood. They are going to see their friends for social gatherings in the Fall.  Why not be the person to reach out with a fun theme idea for them to host?  I love parties with apple cider, Christmas tea, cookie exchange, and the best are Favorite things parties where I do lots of giveaways like Oprah’s Favorite Things show used to do!

So there you have it! 3 simple ways to grow your business during the holiday season! I can’t wait to see all your fun pictures captured at your party!

Valentine’s Day: 5 Ways To Show Your Customers Some Love

valentines day, direct sales, succeed and shine training, customer appreciation, customer service, love,

It’s almost Valentine’s Day and no matter how you feel about the holiday, we can agree that it’s always a good time to show someone you care about them. That includes your significant other, your children, extended family and friends…and yes, those who support your business!

Valentine’s Day is the perfect opportunity to reach out to your customers, hostesses, your online communities, and those who have referred you to others.

Here are some fun ways to celebrate your customers during Valentine’s Day:

1. Send a Heartfelt THANK YOU email.
Simple, right? Sometimes just telling other’s you appreciate them and showing gratitude is the BEST option. Making it personal by sending them direct communication (an email, a private message, etc.) just takes that level of care up a notch.

2. Send a FREE Printable!
For your customers and hostesses that are Moms, chances are they’re busy. By sending them a cute, easy, but unique Valentine’s Day printable takes something off their (long) to do list! You can find a ton of these on Pinterest! Here’s a link to a board where I’ve already stashed some of my favorites, just for you!

3. Offer a Wishlist Service
Using Google Docs or a similar program, have your customers fill out their very own wishlist. Then email them a fun poem, or meme that has your contact information on it. All they have to do is forward to their spouse and you can take care of the rest!

4. Offer a Discount
Everyone loves to save! Choose a few items that you LOVE and offer those at a discount. Or better yet, let them choose the item they LOVE the best to make it even more special.

5. Leave Them LOVE notes on Social Media!
This will be a BIG HIT for your customers whose Love Language is Words of Affirmation. Leave them a post on their wall sharing something simple you love about them. It’s the perfect pick-me-up and you just might change their whole day!

How simple were these fun ideas? They’ll go a long way in making an impression with the people who support your business!

I’d love to hear below in the comments what other fun ideas you have, or which one of these 5 you’re going to implement!
