5 Tips for a smooth business run-up to Christmas

Christmas is nearly here! Have you put your tree up yet? It’s been fab seeing all your trees on socials. We haven’t got our tree yet as we always wait until after my husband’s birthday, which was yesterday. Plus we’ve got two kittens, so utter destruction of all our decorations is a possibility, but we’ll give it a go!

How are you getting on making Christmas plans?

If you need them, here are 5 Top Tips to make your business run-up to Christmas a little bit smoother.

1. Schedule your time wisely to fit in finishing off projects, client work and shopping! What needs to be finished this week? Schedule it in your diary or automate it! Looking at your workload, put in dates you’ll start the task and the date it needs to be finished, published, sent. Tick, done! ✅

2. When you’re talking to your clients, ask them if they need any other help?. Can you help them or introduce them to someone in your network who can?

3. Book a Christmas networking event today – get online and see everyone. Say thank you to your clients this year and your network for all their support. And if your clients are looking for a good event to go to, please pass on these details for Contacts and Cocktails. Or bring them along with you!

🍹We’ll be raising a glass on Wednesday night at Contacts and Cocktails Happy Quizmas event. Book here to join us and celebrate all your hard work and determination this year.

4 Check your cashflow. Do a little credit control today if you’re waiting for invoices to be paid before the end of the year.

5. Outsource! You don’t have to do it all yourself, do you need a VA? 🤗 Get in touch if you do and I can recommend someone for you.

What can you do today to help for a smoother run-up to Christmas? Schedule it in and do schedule our last networking event this year. Only two more sleeps!

Yay, hope to see you soon at Contacts and Cocktails on Wednesday.
