The direct sales industry is timeless. Direct selling is perfect all year long. Although many people go on hiatus during the holiday season, the holidays may actually prove to be the best opportunity to showcase your products and services.
By definition, direct selling is the marketing and selling of products and services directly to consumers away from a fixed retail location by way of personal presentation, demonstration, party plan method or one-on-one demonstrations, usually in their homes or at their jobs. Depending on what your direct selling company’s product or service offerings are often determine whether or not its busy season will fall in line with the holiday shopping season. For those companies that anticipate a year-end sales boost, planning for the holidays can begin as many as 12 to 18 months in advance. Planning and timing are key elements to capitalize on your investment during the holiday crunch.
As small business owners with preparation for the holiday sales bump in the forefront of your mind, it is also important to think of others during this festive time of year. Making a tax-deductible donation to a local or national charity is a great way of giving back and building credibility with your clients and customers, showing that your depth of character. Even if you are in the direct selling industry on a part time basis simply to earn extra money, you can donate your time to others in need, which is a valuable commodity as well.
One of the great things about many direct selling companies is their culture of charitable giving. It’s a quality that has attracted many people to the industry over the years ago and has continued to do so. Many direct selling companies have implemented charitable programs as part of their corporate structure and are giving back to their communities both locally and globally!
According to the Direct Selling Association, “Two in five direct selling companies with CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) activities (37 percent) were involved in corporate social responsibility from the time of their companies’ founding. Furthermore; their CSR activities often reflect the values of company founders or the personal experiences of people working at their companies.”
