Gift Basket Business Guide to Holiday Sales: How to Make the Most Out of Your 4th Quarter Sales (Gift Basket Business Guide to Profits Series)

If you’re a gift basket business owner looking to shine in what is perhaps the most hectic period of the year, then Gift Basket Business Guide to Holiday Sales by Liz Thompson is the book for you! Built on the same concepts and principles covered in Gift Basket Business Guide to Making REAL Money by the same author, this manual tackles the crucial elements necessary to increase sales during the holiday season.

This is also the season for two important positions to rise to the occasion – the Sales Representative and the Vice President of Sales and Marketing. This guide outlines why your key people need to know their roles (especially when YOU are playing these roles), how to cascade their know-how to the rest of the sales team, identify targets, step up their holiday marketing campaign, create proposals, close the sales AND nurture their clients post-sales.

The fourth quarter is rife with the stiffest competition, and as the book’s introduction goes, do NOT feel like you have to do everything on your own. This is the time to get those extra pair of hands. Trust Liz Thompson when she says you’re going to need all the help you can get for tasks such as:

- cold calls

- holiday presentations

- number crunching

- marketing your products

- providing incentives to clients

- perfecting your business correspondences

- using seasonal educational articles to build trust and boost sales

And that’s just the tip of the holiday iceberg! You deserve the best advice possible and it gets no better than this guide.

Question by TPJ2010: How do you account for penny auction sales?
As owners of this type of business….Since it is categorized as entertainment shopping, would the product actually be “sold” or would the income you make be considered a “service” type income? Since the main profit comes from selling bids, which cannot readily be attributed to a product, I would think you would account for income as a service-based business and expense the products as “prizes”? Need some thoughts….there is no help online for this!

Best answer:

Answer by jknox84
Given the relatively low selling price on these items in comparison the FMV or MSRP, I would concur that you are selling a service. I have tried to research what I could, but the formal guidance on this is limited since this is such a new trend in shopping I would say you could argue accounting for it either way, but probably the most conservative is as a service-based entertainment business, giving away prizes and as such, these prizes can be part of your operating expenses.

Either way you are netting the same income versus cost, just a timing difference of if you want to recognize revenue when sale of bid packs occur (service based) or when they are used to bid on and allocated to item (sale based), which would then establish a reserve on your balance sheet for unused bids purchased, which is not revenue until used for bidding.

Service Based:
Revenue from Sale of Bid Packs (aka Intangible Membership Fees) $ 10,000
Cost of Prizes Given During Period (Membership Benefits) $ (8,000)
Personnel Cost $ (1,000)
Advertising Website/Maintenance $ (500)
Net Operating Income $ 500

Product Based:
Revenue from Sale of Merchandise (End Bid + Incremental Bids) $ 9,000
Cost of Merchandise Sold During Period $ (7,000)
Personnel Cost $ (1,000)
Advertising Website/Maintenance $ (500)
Net Operating Income $ 500
** You also have $ 1,000 worth of bids also purchased but not yet recognized as revenue (liability on books), which will have corresponding cost of goods sold when used at a later date.

Hope this gives some insight and things to think about.
