Holidays are in full swing! You AND your clients may be busy with holiday gatherings, gift shopping, traveling, and so on. Rather than being overwhelmed with the holiday hype, it’s important to stay ahead of the curve. Staying organized will allow you to enjoy the season festivities without letting your business goals fall to the wayside.
Holidays are a great time to connect with clients and check in with yourself. To kick off December, we’ve come up with 5 tips to help you prepare for the holiday season.
Being Prepared 101
#1 Prep your marketing early
Do you have holiday marketing ideas in mind for present and past clients? If so, start preparing your strategy now so there’s less rush to gather materials. With everything prepped, you can always make changes as you see fit.
#2 Be flexible with work hours if needed
Schedules change as the holidays arrive. Your clients may not be available during your normal meeting times. Be open to adjusting your schedule to accommodate if needed. With enough notice given, your time will be better managed during the holiday time.
#3 Make organization a priority
The real estate market traditionally slows down during December. If you know you will have more free time, this is the time to get organized. A few tasks to check off could be to update your contact list, plan your marketing strategy, or consider new management tools to add to your resources.
#4 Keep in touch with clients
As you probably know, the holidays are a prime time to check in with your clients. Take time to send your well wishes by sending holiday cards, automated emails, or gift drops!
#5 Set goals for the New Year
Take time to reflect on your wins and losses. The new year is an opportunity to improve on your business and personal goals. Make it a priority to incorporate self care, gather educational resources, and list out your goals for the new year!
