Q1 strategies: products to sell in 2023

In the sales sector, Q1 (first quarter of the year) is considered the most difficult period of the entire year. Christmas is over, and people have already spent a lot of money over the holidays, while in China suppliers are closing for the Spring festival, and it is impossible to purchase new products. So what are the best strategies to get around these problems?

The Chinese New Year Problem

The Chinese New Year starts between the end of January and the middle of February, depending on the year, and in China the official national holiday lasts for two weeks! The date of the Chinese New Year changes every year, and it is customary for most companies to take a few days off both before and after. This means that on average, your suppliers take at least two weeks off.

Get ready for the Chinese New Year

The bad news is that if you import from China your business will definitely be affected by this holiday, the good news is that once you understand what’s slowing you down, you’ll be in a better position to prepare.

Many suppliers will stop accepting orders in the weeks leading up to the holidays, which means that:

  1. Two weeks before the holidays, products will start to run out.
  2. The shortage of goods will cause prices to rise because everyone will want to buy the last stock before factories closed.
  3. Many suppliers will be closed for the entire month so you will not be able to ask for information on previous shipments, or for quotes of new products.
