Since most of the midwest has snow on the ground already and we’re expecting another round of the fluffy white stuff this weekend, I thought I’d share a few tips to make the most of the “snow days” for your Direct Sales business. (Of course, these tips are good for any time you have available!)
- Host an online LIVE sale.
Call it a “snow day” or “rainy day” sale or whatever you want, just put your own spin on it. Unload your inventory, prep for Valentine’s Day or the next big sales day for your Direct Sales Company, create your own sets of products, have a grab bag sale, create an auction. If people have been indoors all weekend they are likely ready to shop.
- Get organized.
Organize your office space, your own personal inventory stash, prep for a sale or event, or even begin organizing for tax time. Use today to organize your business life.
- Update your contact list.
Then use that list to reach out, follow up and get bookings or events on your calendar. Set a timer for one hour and just reach out to your people!
- Read, listen, and learn.
Grab that book that’s been lying around since Christmas, listen to a business building podcast or watch your fave industry professional’s latest LIVE. When your cup is full you can fill the cup of others.(Rachel Hollis is going to be the keynote speaker at Plunder’s annual Palooza event in September, so we are happy to recommend Girl, Wash Your Face or one of her other great books. She’s definitely a favorite of the Buckeye Bling Team.)
- Get creative.
Work on updating your logos or marketing materials. Create your own flat lays for your products, pull out some cute outfits and your Plunder Design jewelry (or whatever your product may be) and create a few selfies or a how-to video to use the next week in your Facebook business page. Then, schedule all your posts for next week!
How you use your snow days, rainy days or your extra free time is up to you, but be sure to include some time to work on your business. Your success in Direct Sales–and in any business or job you have–depends on the time and work you put into it.
