Today I answered Ana's question:

How do I avoid the post-holiday sales slump in my online business?

If you can't see the video, click here.

I have four suggestions for keeping your hard-earned holiday momentum rolling through the New Year:

  1. Keep the new people around.
  2. Offer them something new (that goes with what they already bought)
  3. Ask for the share.
  4. Plan for the slump.


PS. Like my dress? Me too! It's Megan, from Karina

    I’d go with Take Off Videos or From the Captain’s Chair. 🙂  Or maybe Reading the Map Together: Answers from Tara. Hope it goes well!
