The Holiday Season Is Upon Us, Are You Still Building Your Business?
So… are you?
Well you should be because…
It’s The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year!
I was reminded of this song today by Andy Williams today and it inspired me to write this post.
Now I know your wondering, what does Christmas, Andy Williams, and building my home business have to do with each other?
Let me explain.
Bet before I get to that, let me ask you a couple of questions…
What does the holiday time of the year mean to you and your business?
Is it a time of…
For most people, this time of the year is all about Hibernation for their business.
They put it to sleep and wake it back up in the new year. Sound familiar?
Now don’t get me wrong…
I am all for Celebration, Relaxation, Downtime, and being with Family and Friends.
That’s why you are in this industry to start with RIGHT?
But what I am not up for is to put by business to rest at a time when it is best to keep it going…
This is why, and your advantage you have if you keep working on your business through the holiday season…
1. You Have More Of A Chance Of Being Noticed.
Let’s face it… Most people are hibernating and sleeping when it comes to their business during the holiday season. This is a perfect time to be seen while others are not marketing and promoting their stuff. Can you say ‘Window of Opportunity’!!!
2. Not Everyone Is Sleeping… People Are Still Looking.
Ok… although most home business owners are sleeping during this time, the people who are looking for opportunities in this industry certainly are not. I would even hedge a bet that they are looking even more actively during this time of year to be able to find something to help them through the season with their family. Not everyone is as happy and cheery as you see on the T.V. specials and holiday movies. There are people out there waiting for you to show up and help them. Go find them.
3. Holiday Parties, Mixers, Functions, and Gathers.
This is my favorite thing during the holiday season. Who says that working your business can’t be fun. I certainly do not believe that. Do you? All of these events that you are booked for are great ways to meet new people and build new relationships. Use them to build up your Rolodex of new partners and customers that you can contact in the new year about what you are doing. Yes, don’t prospect them on the spot, just create the connection, get their contact info, and follow up with them when they are back to working mode in their life. Fun and business all wrapped up into one!
How does it get any better than this?
Don’t put your business in hibernation mode this holiday season and get yourself positioned for 2012 to kick off with a BANG!
The choice is yours…
Which will you choose?
