For an awful lot of people, today will be the last working day before Christmas. For many it may be the last working day of the year. Either way, it’s a great time of year, everyone’s in a marvellous, festive mood, having fun and, inevitably slowing down the workload in anticipation of a few days of Christmassyness (yes that is a word!).
There’s a double whammy going on today in terms of keeping the motivation going – not only is it nearly Christmas, it’s a friday – the day when salespeople all around the globe turn part of their brains off and “take it easy”
Well, I say “salespeople” – not successful salespeople. The successful salespeople will be using today for what it is – a BRILLIANT opportunity for getting hold of key decision makers and MAKING SALES.
Think about it – everyone’s in a better mood, they have less work on their plate AND less businesspeople are driving around the country attending meetings – result – decision makers are in a great mood, they have less of a workload than at other times of the year AND they’re sat at their desks, shuffling papers.
Get in there – pitch, engage, amuse, get some meetings set up for january, send over information, schedule a call over the christmas period – whatever you can do.
Don’t sit back, give up and spend the day stuffing your face with mince pies – that’s what your competitors will be doing. Get on the phone, get those emails out, get out the door – just get some activity going. Then you can rest, knowing you’ve made that final, all important push, ready to take a well earned break in a couple of days!
So is December the 19th the best day for selling this year?
Up to you!
