This Year's Almost Over, Don't Let Your Guard Down On Sales!

Have you decided that the stretch between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Eve is a poor time to close new deals? Think again. Sales don't have to go dormant during the holidays if you follow these strategies:
Understand the client mind-set. Even though companies on a calendar year budget may be near or at the end of their ability to spend money, think ahead. Counteract this objection by offering to defer billing for sales booked in December.
Deem December "customer appreciation month." The holidays are a fine time to check in with all your customers to say "hi," wish them a good season, and thank them for their business. Provide a small gift or scrip to valued clients — it's an excellent way to get an audience in a hectic month.
Offer discounts and barter incentives to new clients. Launch a strong offer to close new business deals before December 31, by including special pricing and barter offers. You can thus get a leg-up on the conventional thinking that December is a slow sales month.
Eye those first-quarter goals. Beyond expectations that sales will continue during December, encourage your sales personnel to use the 12th month to "pencil in" their first-quarter sales prospects — so when the world comes back to work they'll be able to hit the ground running! — World's Largest Depository Of Barter Information

Hundreds of valuable articles, techniques, and strategies are found in the following various barter categories:

It's Time To Call On Your "Relationship Currency!"

In today's changing economic environment, where the traditional avenues of money have narrowed, the entrepreneur must become reoriented and work on developing a new mind-set. And that is a mind-set that incorporates relationship currency.
The use of non-cash, relationship currencies can take different forms. In the corporate world it is finding another company to interact with. Often referred to as leveraging assets, they use what they have to gain access to what they need. For a smaller company the same action is often referred to as bootstrapping. In either case it involves working with another company wherein both parties benefit.
There is yet another way to get out of the gate when building and expanding your business — it's by building a relationship with a trade exchange, and using their trade dollar currency. A trade exchange offers you the opportunity to turn your products and services into a currency that can be spent in hundreds of different ways with the many members of the exchange.
The benefits are two fold. First, the additional business and subsequent purchases will save you cash. And second, it's a world completely separate from your cash market. So it doesn't compete with or upset any of your present cash business. Relationships, in many forms, are valuable and should be pursued at every opportunity.
