A Fun Way to Book Parties in December

It can be tough to book parties in December. True it is the gift giving season, but many companies have holiday cut off dates during the first week or two of December. Many guests have their Christmas shopping done, or nearly done.  I’m going to share a fun way to get more parties booked during December.

It can be tough to book parties in December. But here's an idea that not only can be fun, but also get you a lot new parties booked for month!

November bookings are generally pretty easy to get – not always true for December. But that doesn’t mean you should skip booking parties the entire month. Especially, if you have stock on hand that customers can take home with them instead of waiting for an order. Even if that isn’t the case customers still enjoy getting together to see your latest and greatest products and order something for themselves. Who said you can’t give yourself a gift for Christmas?

Ready to Book Parties in December?

Versions of the “Twelve Days of December” have been around before.  It’s a great starting point to give you an idea how to get ideas in a month that is traditionally very busy for most.
You would pay for the giveaways and incentives, but depending on your individual company you may be able to use hostess benefits and get them for free, half off or discounted. If not, consider that the commissions you make by actually having bookings in this busy month would more than cover the investment.

The example below is using a candle company, and you would clearly substitute the incentives with your own products. Use this as an incentive at your November parties to book your calendar for December. If you have a Facebook Group you can promote there. Create some nice graphics to use in your promotion. I use Canva and love it! PicMonkey is easy to use, too.
