Prepping Your Business for a Successful Holiday Season

FILED IN: Business Tips

As cooler weather, changing leaves and allll the PSLs begin approaching, we welcome the coziness of fall. We also know this indicates the start of the craziness of the holidays…

I wanted to share some of my favorite ways to run my business efficiently, stay inspired, and keep things organized during this fun (but chaotic) time of year. So, grab your warm cup of coffee, get cozy and let’s dive into some fall-inspired business wisdom!

1. The Organizational Tool You Need: Hustle Sanely Planner 🗓️

If there’s one thing that has been an absolute game-changer for me this year, it’s the Hustle Sanely planner. This little gem has helped me stay on top of my game and has been a crucial tool in keeping me organized and focused on my business goals. I’ve found myself consistently a step ahead in my business compared to where I was last year. Trust me you need to get your hands on one of these! (Hurry they sell out QUICK.) Grab it here

2. Staying Ahead of the Game ⏱️

With the holiday season approaching, we all know how hectic things can get. Jumping from holiday parties to family gatherings and, of course, the shopping and feasting, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. That’s why I want to encourage you to stay ahead of the game when it comes to your holiday deals, especially Black Friday.

Pro tip: Ask for the help of your VA to prep for and execute your Black Friday strategy.

3. Outsource

The holidays can be a crazy busy time. Hire help before the chaos of the season. You can delegate things to your VA to help keep your workload manageable. Your Virtual Assistant can help you with holiday planning, take on tasks so that you can focus on other important areas of your business during this time, or even help you with personal business (such as planning a trip, ordering gifts, managing your calendar).

    4. Planning Out Your Holiday Deals 🤑🛍️

    Take a moment to plan out your holiday deals. Here are some essential considerations:

    • What is the sale going to be? Define your promotions, discounts, or special offers.
    • When is it going to start? Decide the exact date and time your sale will kick off.
    • How long will the sale run for? Determine the duration of your promotion.
    • How are you going to market your sale to your clients? Create a marketing strategy to reach your target audience effectively.
    • What is your launch strategy going to be? Plan the strategy behind your holiday deals for maximum impact.

    By planning out and sorting through your sales and promos well before the holiday rush, you can reduce the chaos that goes hand in hand with this festive season.

    As we transition into fall and prepare for the holiday season, don’t forget to take a moment to enjoy the simple pleasures like a warm cup of coffee and the beauty of autumn leaves 🍁☕️Embrace the season, stay organized, and get ready to make this holiday season your most successful one yet! 🤩
