    I mainly Market to offline Businesses and help them get more customers. However is this a bad time to offer this or is it a good time. I am not trying to promote anything in this post. I am just wondering with the holidays if this is a good or bad move.

    Sales are slower during the holidays for B2B services.

    Some take extra days for the family.

    Some are waiting for the new year's budget to make any additional moves.

    But it's never a bad idea to fill your pipeline with potential clients. Even if they don't buy right away. They may come back in a month or two actually interested.

    Anytime is a good time actually. There will always be someone who will need Marketing in some way. However, as we know in Marketing, you must help them create the opportunity for it. There is likely an opportunity somewhere. All it takes is to talk to them and explore how it will go.

    Well, these are the cold months actually. So, don't expect good sale in these months. Secondly, if you need professional marketing services to achieve your sales target, then you should try any digital agency providing the services. I personally recommend Branex for this. They are operating worldwide.

    Definitely it is not the best time for such activity, as the most of businesses are trying to calculate their gains and losses at the end of period. As for now, you can better prepare for the next year season, so you will be ready to offer something to business owners when they will do planning of their budget for the whole year.

    Actually, my day job is being a VP of Marketing (and Sales) for a B2B manufacturer. I have a fairly significant budget, of course. Things tend to slow down right now, so in some ways, it is a good time for me to consider new vendors or approaches. In fact, I just agreed to a short conference call with a vendor that has been chasing me for months because my calendar is relatively empty the next few days.

    Bottomline: there is a never a "good" time or a "bad" time for marketing and sales efforts. You need to do both all of the time.

    focus all your time and energy on progressional growth and sharpen your skills now and always learn more as it is always possible as you go along with further research. never give up on your dreams unless they arent what you truly need to follow.
