Here are my top tips for January:

1) Booking calls are essential in January - call EVERYONE who has ever expressed an interest in having a trunkshow and tell them that in January they will get a minimum of £70 of free jewellery for hosting a qualified trunkshow. Don't leave it to February when it's back to just £30!

2) Remind people that we have a 50% off sale on in January - so we have something for everyone's budget!

3) January is THE best month of all for recruiting. It would be a mortal sin not to tell your friends about the Sign up special - because effectively you can start a business with us for FREE!

4) I always mention to my hostesses that it's a great time to host a trunkshow at this time of year - after all, we are all bored stiff in January. It's cold and miserable and we need cheering up! Plus everyone has Christmas booze left over. What better way to spend it than in a cosy house catching up with friends after Christmas!

5) Host a January sale of your own and sell off samples you have worn at 50% off to make way for new stock.

6) If you need to offer an extra incentive for booking in January offer to bring a bottle of bubbles or a tray of cupcakes! That way the hostess needs to do nothing apart from invite and open to door to her friends!

7) Look out for events you can attend local to YOU! Fashion shows, charity events, wedding fayres - these are great new places to meet new people and book trunkshows.

8) Valentines Day is on the horizon in a few weeks, remind your male customers! And also remind hostesses that the PERFECT time for a Valentines trunkshow is actually the end of January!

9) Wear your jewellery over those cosy jumpers - after all YOU are your own best advert! Trust me, wear it enough and someone will comment! Don't forget to always carry those mini look books around with you and a business card AND always, always take down the other person's phone number or email address as well as giving them yours.

10) Join a new group and meet new people (I did a make-up course - and loved it - plus I recruited three of the girls :-) ) This year I'm looking for a wine tasting course or a running group !!
