Holiday Workshop 2017: Cash Up for the Holidays!

A P - Tuesday, August 22, 2017

Watch this video to learn how to maximize your season and cash up for the holidays...


My open house is themed, it’s called Christmas in the Woods.  I live in a unique home in the woods, the “Event” is well known in my town, I created it.  I started with my cosmetic customers and now many people come

Remember these tips:

1. What they are coming to, what they are buying and who they are buying for.
2. DO NOT USE YOUR COMPANY NAME IN THE OPEN HOUSE TITLE, if they don’t use your products they won’t come, if they just got a reorder they won’t come. Most people don’t know you have gifts.
3. Put this on the pretty holiday paper.
4. They DO NOT have to be your customers to be on your mailing list, I have a separate mailing list just for Christmas in addition to my personal customers.
This is an example of what you can do (see my tips in red):
