This is the Week to Guarantee Your January Income

It’s the last week of 2010.  For a lot of direct sellers, they’re kicking back after a busy holiday sales season, enjoying some down time.  But I hope that‘s not you.

Why?

Because this is the time of the year when you should be guaranteeing your income for January.

If you’ve been in this business even only a few months, you know that it usually takes some time to get sales events scheduled.  Whether it be one on one appointments or parties, there’s typically some planning involved.  And if you don’t get those things scheduled in December, you’re going to miss out on sales for the first weeks of January.

Are you willing to sacrifice half a month’s income for the sake of a few days of downtime?

Of course you can still enjoy time with your family during this time.  But set aside some time each day to make phone calls.

People need to pay off their holiday bills.  You might be the solution.  People still need your products, and those January specials typically can’t be beat.  If you need to kick things off, host a “hostess appreciation party” where you host something and pamper your previous hostesses.  Extra gifts if they choose to book again.

Don’t shut down your social media presences either.  Let people know about the great specials in January, and be sure to engage them on their Facebook profiles.  Now is also a great time to get some extra attention for your blog.  You see, a lot of folks are taking this time off.  Give them something fresh to read on your blog, and you’ll get more eyeballs.

This week can be a goldmine if you take advantage of it.  If you want to be successful, go to work!  Even if it’s just for a few hours each day.

How will you guarantee your January income this week?  Would love to read your thoughts in the comments below.

    You’re right – the January sales and promotions can’t be beat! I’ve seen other consultants who are reluctant to promote because they think everyone is tapped out after Christmas or they purchased a lot of stuff from them for gift giving they don’t want to “bother” them. I try to remind them they are just sharing the promotion. How would they feel if there was a great deal at a Big Box store but they didn’t know about it because it wasn’t in the ad yesterday? Same thing 🙂

      So true Ivette. People don’t stop shopping because the holidays are over. And people LOVE a good deal. All the people in the mall the day after Christmas are evidence of that!
