It’s that time of year again.

You travel to spend the holidays with your family (84 million are doing this in the US).

After 10 minutes you realize why you only visit your family once a year.

They annoy the hell out of you. 

So you sneak away for some alone time as often as you can get away with it.

And what do you do?

You check Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn about 50 times a day.

People have a lot of free time between now and the end of the year.

When you send them friendly “keep in touch” messages on LinkedIn, people have time to respond.

I’m not talking about sales pitches.

Simple messages to say “Hello” or “Happy Holidays”

This gets you back on their radar. 

Many times this turns into lucrative year-end deals or deals that close in January.

Stop selling and spread some holiday cheer by reconnecting with past clients and colleagues. 

The sales will come when the time is right.

Happy Holidays!
