Jennifer's Challenge is an excellent way to energize and jump start your game plan for starting the 2011 year early, with a wonderful beginning. Jennifer has challenged us to do 31 things (1 per day) for December - every day! I highly recommend to my friends here on activerain to join this challenge! I just did...

Are you up for a Challenge?

We've all heard that December can be a real dud.  Sellers often take their houses off the market for "the holidays", thinking it will just be too much hassle to have people traipsing through their home on Christmas Eve (the nerve!), despite the fact that those buyers who are shopping are usually in a pretty good position to be doing so.  Studies show that these buyers are more serious, are pre-qualified, and have a timeline they are pretty strict about.

But it's not always easy to find them.  And you can't force your sellers to keep their home on the market.

Talking on the phoneSo where is your business going to be come January?  Enter the Challenge.

December has 31 days- yes, including Hanukkah, Christmas Eve and Day, and New Year's Eve. And probably some other holidays I haven't thought of. 

For the month of December, I CHALLENGE you to do 31 things to further your business.  One per day.  Every day. (you didn't think I'd let you skip the holidays did you?)

This might be a blog post, facebook note, tweet, text, phone call or email.  It could be a newsletter, event, or postcard.  You get the idea!

The idea is that you will do something every day to further your business.  Come 2011, you will be WAY ahead of your competition, and poised to take the New Year by storm.

Who's with me?  (If there is a lot of interest, maybe AR will BONUS us POINTS!)  Let me know how you are doing, I cannot wait to share our ideas, successes, setbacks and triumphs.

Hey everyone!  I just created a group called "31 Days of December Challenge".  Please join the group so we can all keep track of those fantastic ideas and ways of building our December and beyond!  Can't wait to see your posts- please post at least 3 times a week.  I am still awaiting word on whether we will get bonus points.

And as you know... I did too!

It's SO easy to put off marketing for a day, and then to let that day stretch off into a week. NOT good! I love this challenge for the pressure it puts on us to keep doing something every day.
