We are planning a fun presentation on all things holiday! We’ll be talking about moving your business forward and making it profitable as well as doing this stress free and organized- professionally and personally. Here is a sneak peak of a topic I’ll cover about selling. It’s something you can do right now to help people start their holiday shopping and get your year end profits up!
A great way to sell during the holidays when you have your own business is to turn an area of your home into a store! It can be a table in your office, a section of your dining room or that guest room that won’t be used until Thanksgiving. Many of us can find a small area to display items to show people.
If you are in direct sales this set up can include your samples-similar to how you would set up at a vendor show. Have the items set up so people can see what is available during the holiday season as well as your regular catalog items. Also, have items in a basket or cute container to display as ideas for a gift basket! This can increase your volume because they may buy a few more items or offer it as an additional service this time of year. For someone crafty, set up your ETSY inventory like a small shop and replenish as you sell! Again, set up like you would at a craft show.
Make these displays feel a little like the holiday season. With just a few things from around the house you can create an inviting and welcoming personal space to shop. People will love to have that one on one shopping time in a relaxed environment that fits their schedule. Remember this is a hectic time for everyone so providing this type of experience will be great for your customers and they will become repeat customers!
