Business.gov released some tips on how a seasonal business can thrive all year long. Manage your invoicing and make sure you receive payment from all customers so it doesn’t hinder you during the slow months. The SBA offers loans for seasonal businesses that need the extra capital to run their business during peak times. Try to come up with other ways to sell your products during the slow periods. Be creative and come up with new ideas, products or ways to use your products during your non-seasonal time. This particular topic will require some thinking and creativity. Also, make sure your fees are affordable during the non-seasonal time as well. If for example, you are a Christmas tree vendor, then your time is only about 6 weeks out of the year. Having fees throughout the rest of the year may be too expensive. Another idea would be to create another business you can do on the side during the rest of the year that could be a supplement. Such as you could have a tree farm selling regular trees that people buy in the spring, summer & fall times.
