The last three months of the year have to be my favorite as a direct seller! Halloween, Thanksgiving, Hannukah, and Christmas all get the direct sales companies into a tizzy with all the limited exclusive collections they release! As a direct seller, you want to capitalize on these limited time products and boost your own sales to help you out during the time where everyone is spending a little more than normal. So what things can you do as a direct seller? Let’s take a look at 3 direct sales holiday tips and how they can help to boost your seasonal sales!
There are SO many vendor events, holiday fairs, and school fairs around this time of the year so take advantage of those in your local area or even better, create a holiday vendor event of your own with your fellow direct sales friends! Create a whimsical seasonal theme for your table and be sure to showcase your most popular holiday-themed products as they are available for a limited time. Take it one step further with a seasonal table game or freebie. A wonderful idea for Christmastime is to have an advent calendar with 24 slots with special prizes inside! A customer makes a purchase and gets to choose a number!
With all of your online parties for your hostess (and even ones for your VIP group!) create some fun graphics and hold a Facebook party celebrating the holidays! Take Thanksgiving, for example, ask your online guests what their favorite Thanksgiving food is? Or for Christmastime, what do your guests prefer, a real tree or an artificial one? Using engaging posts like these as pre-party teasers or games throughout the party are fun and get people involved in the party. Need help with ideas or graphics?

Gift Buying Events
My last direct sales holiday tip is a little bit different to a vendor event. A gift buying event can be something just for your direct sales business or, you can hold one with your fellow direct sales friends. Get together and showcase spectacular gift sets! Events like these make it easy for the customer. Gifts are prepacked and all wrapped up with pretty ribbon and finished off with a bow. Provide some simple and chic greeting cards to finish off the package and the customer is good to go! This takes all the guesswork out of the gift giving process which for some, is essential. This is a great way for customers to do some last minute shopping and a way for you to sell your seasonal inventory!

And don’t forget, no matter what time of the year, reach out to previous customers and hostesses and share with them how you can make their holiday shopping easier by providing some great customer service and exclusive holiday gifts!
