When you think of the holiday season, holiday classics aren’t that far in people’s minds. Ever notice something though? A lot of these movies are all about parents missing out on their kids. Just look at Hook, The Santa Clause, and Jingle All The Way for some really popular examples.
If you’re an appointment setter, that should say a lot to you. If your target market is anyone in the C-suite (or even just managerial positions will do), it should say a whole lot more.
While you can cite statistics and dispute with actual facts, that stereotype sticks hard. It’s still painfully easy to imagine business folks never getting to spend time with their kids (assuming they even have any).
But hey, who says they don’t want to change that either right? It’s not like they ALL want to stuff their schedules with appointments over Thanksgiving dinners.
This is where your job as an appointment setter comes in. You’ve already got prospects ready to sort out their time. Don’t make it any harder with poor scheduling habits! Here are a few tips that can keep your attempts to score prospects from messing up everyone’s holiday plans.
It’s not just about the kids. Remember, holiday classics tend to be big family-friendly films so it’s really more about family than just parenting. You don’t think all your prospects took the path of a lonely, old Scrooge do you? Be it Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hannukah or whatever, good scheduling should also make sure everyone gets home in time.
