Wrap up with a celebration

In December, close the year with a thank you to yearbook staff. After all, they are the reason you have an awesome product to sell. Encourage sales progress with a team party.

Thank the staff
As things slow down before the break, it’s a good time to enjoy yourself and celebrate sales achievements so far. Take time to plan a get-together with yearbook staff.

The best thing about my yearbook advertising is….them, my staff. They put in endless hours coming up with creative promotional ideas and give everything they have to make this yearbook happen and to sell out every year. I adore them more than words can say. They’re the creative driving force behind this growing program and I’m so thankful to have such a diligent and dedicated staff.Jennifer Riley, Plainview High School
