I’m currently very busy with getting started with Christmas. I know its only August, but my business is set to increase 100% leading up to Christmas.
I’m very excited about the new product lines which Phoenix have brought out this year, there is a great selection of cards, new wrapping paper and accessories. All this should prove very easy to sell.
Why am I starting so early with Christmas? Easy answer: the more preparations and planning I do will increase my sales!
I’ve submitted my mailing list database to Phoenix Trading last week, the mailing house will post the new brochure out to my customers for me. Another easy win! 100 customers will be receiving a copy come mid-September. My brochure is my like my Shop Window, I need as many people to see it as possible.
Last week I attended a gift wrapping course with More Pretty Things to learn new gift wrapping techniques. I’ve covered the basics of wrapping boxes, odd shapes, bottles and some Japanese Pleating skills. I’ve since gone and bought lots of ribbons, wrapping paper and cellophane! I’m going to be offering these skills on a free demonstration basis to customers which have a Christmas Card & Wine Party. I just need to find time over the weekend to tell them all!
I’m opening my house to all my customers for an all day Card Party on 22nd September. From 1pm and 6pm anyone can pop by to see the new Christmas range and have a gift wrapping demonstration. Its going to be sooo much fun! Hopefully people can see the potential of hosting their own party event too.
All the stock is ordered, so I’m looking forward to a busy sales period.
But if you cannot wait to see the new range, pop over to by website and take a look.
