Last Minute Direct Sales Tips for the Holidays
Looking to bring in a few last-minute sales at this busy time of year? Here are some tips from top sellers we thought we'd share with you!
-I like to bake a bunch of holiday cookies and pop a couple in a plastic bag (I get fun red and green ones from the craft store) and staple my card and a little note that says "I gift wrap and ship in time for Christmas" I give them to my neighbors. I've gotten a few last-minute orders this way and even a new customer!
-I have a friend who owns a little shop and she gives out my free samples and card with people who buy a certain amount from her. During the holidays, I give out holiday cards and little goodies to everyone who comes into her shop. It's brought in a few sales and I am doing it again this year!

-My daughter has a group of friends (she is 12) at school who do a shipment to overseas military. I always provide a few nice items (I put my name and number on a sticker on them). Last year I gave away a few things for the women and one of them called me when she got back from duty and said she loved the nice beauty products and bought more from me. She appreciated the lotion over in the desert and was thrilled to get something "girly" over there. This year I"m getting some others in my company to do the same so we can reach even more of our female military members!
-Giving at the holidays just seems natural, so I always make sure that I contact all my customers and let them know that during December I have a special gift for them, whether they place an order or not. It doesn't cost me much and the goodwill is priceless. My customers stay with me for years and this is one way I provide the service I'd like to get from others! I usually get several orders by just contacting them with this
