5 Great Business Ideas

when you want to be in holiday mode!

I don?t know about you, but it seems just a teensy bit harder to be motivated to do business stuff this time of year 🙂

If you reach out for referrals or clients after the 18th, you?re likely to get crickets.

So what can you do when you need to keep things moving?

I don?t know about you, but it seems just a teensy bit harder to be motivated to do business stuff this time of year 🙂

If you reach out for referrals or clients after the 18th, you?re likely to get crickets.

So what can you do when you need to keep things moving?

Check out these 5 business-building ideas that are perfect for this time of year!

Tip 1: Make a list of people to reconnect with

During the year, you?ve probably reached out to dozens of people inquiring about becoming referral partners, becoming clients, or in some way connecting with them. 

How many of those relationships actually panned out? And what happened to the rest of the list? 

Perhaps it?s scattered in your email folders, or in a spreadsheet with names, emails and phone numbers. Take time now to pull the list together, so you can start reaching out either December 26th or January 2nd, and re-ignite those relationships.

Tip 2: Plan out your content marketing/blogs/FB lives for the New Year

Sitting down to write a blog, or plan out other content marketing, can often feel pressuring and deadline-driven. That?s not the way to do your best work!

Come up with a list of topics, so you?re already starting with an idea when you sit down to create. It?s much easier to create content when you have a starting place, rather than staring at a blank screen.

Tip 3: Choose 1 new marketing channel, or thing to learn

How will you expand your outreach in the New Year? Will you get on a new platform, or learn some other way to grow your business? 

Take some time to look at your options, and choose the one that you?re going to pursue, learn, and master in the upcoming year.

Tip 4: Clean out your files, digital or physical

If it?s a challenge to find things, and your files are messy, cleaning those up creates a great new energy for you to move forward! 

Maybe you?ll clean up and organize your Google Drive, or Dropbox, or perhaps you have paper files that need to be gone through and re-organized. It?s not a glamorous job, but the results are worth it!

Tip 5: Create some automation to make your life easier

What is one thing you?re doing in your business that takes a lot of time, or seems tedious? Is there a way to automate it. 

One of my to-dos for the next week is to clean up the apps on my phone – I use less than 10, and I have 3 screens full. Time to simplify, and see which apps can make my life better. And that?s just one example. 

Perhaps you need to set up a reminder system to write your blog, or pay your bills. Take things out of your mind, and put them in a reminder system so your life flows more smoothly.

Which idea will YOU implement this week? Do you have a different one? Share with me on Facebook!
