Let's post our results from actual phone calls and e-mails made 16th - 18th. New shows booked, not just Jan. shows, b/c it's all good.

I decided that by making a host coaching call to my already booked Jan. hosts that it counts toward the blitz. I really hate making phone calls (that's why I'm procrastinating here!!!!). Tho it's on the books, it may not hold unless you do the host coaching during this busy time of year.

Well, I booked a couple shows that I know will have to move to Feb...;) and I saw my name on the winners page - but then when I just went back and looked, it's not there anymore?:confused::(

But, I also have a consultant who submitted 2 shows, and they were on the tracker, and in my stats...and just now, when I was looking - one of her shows isn't there anymore?:confused::confused::confused:

So - who knows what's going on...I'm not calling HO today to find out either.

I just tried to sign on and look at the list of winners for the booki blitz. It just says "coming soon". Has anyone noticed this? My name appeared earlier today as a winner and then disappeared. I wonder what is going on??

It had the list earlier today when I registered a new show....but at the time- there were 5+ pages...so if your name was on it once, it probably just shifted to another page as more names were added. Maybe they have so many names now they have to better organize it - or perhaps it wasn't listing the winners but everyone who registered?? *hehe* wouldn't that be a bummer!

Those of you who are successful in booking those shows...are you saying anything specific to get January bookings? Getting people past the objections of "no one will have money", or whatever? Just curious.

I am telling people that many people get cash (or Visa cards) for Christmas. Have a party that first week of the new year and you have Christmas money and the credit card bill hasn't arrived yet :)

Left lots and lots of messages! Got a few people to respond but one wants to book a bridal shower in the spring, one is having a baby and wants to do a show in the spring. A couple others told me to call back. But I made it through 75% of my list! I'm proud of that! More calls to make tomorrow along with some people at work to talk to.

Our cluster is having a 'booking blitz party' tomorrow. We'll get some training, a script, and then spend time making calls. Afterwards, we'll party. I have two people at work to talk to tomorrow, so I'm counting those, and tonight I made a list of 20 people to call tomorrow night (I'm very proud of myself for doing this).

Okay Question -- In Canada our Booking Blitz doesn't start til the 18th, did anyone send out an email? Or offer a prize to entice bookings?
Just wondering if I should..

We did a mini-blitz at our meeting/party last night. I left two messages and then got a hold of my neighbor and booked her for December 15th. The second I got off the phone with her, my cell died :D

When making calls...how many of you are telling your potential hosts that you are competing in a booking blitz? anyone?? I just wondered if by doing this it may encourage potential hosts to book a show to help us "win".

I just booked a show for the 15th! I registered it and it says I got 25 entries for this being my first booking. Is that all I need to do? Is the instant winning w/ PC$ on that same registration site? So if nothing was mentioned after I submitted, that means I didn't win anything, right?

I was at a booth last night .. .and hoped and hoped to have some shows on my calendar when I left. A few ooohs and aaahs from the moms ... but NO BOOKINGS! I am trying not to regard it as a waste of time. IMHO, anything that gets your name out to a new market is worth it!

I plan to make some calls tonight. Congrats to all the winners!

Sorry you didn't get any bookings. Was the booth worth it otherwise?

My name showed up as having won yesterday when I was entering my shows. My name is not showing up on the list now and I don't have any PC dollars in my account. Any idea what is going on?

Woohoo! I have 6 confirmed bookings, and 1 more possible. One of my possibles, canceled. :( I got the PC bucks too, but didn't know until a fellow teammate pointed it out online! lol No email notification or anything! Weird! But, I was so excited to register my first one, that I accidentally put her in for the 1st of January instead of the 9th! Oops! I can't figure out how to change it either! :(

I haven't had time to make any calls yet- but just realized, that we have until Dec 20th to enter new shows...and we have a "winter storm" forecasted for this weekend...so Saturday could be a good chance to reach people at home! :)

So far, I have 3 on the books and one catalog.

Does anyone know if they are going to hold you to the show date submitted? I have a host who isn't sure which date will work for her and won't know until after the 20th. I am tempted to register with one of the dates she has chosen. They are both January dates. Any thoughts?

We have until Midnight central time to register our January shows...so in my book- yes! They don't say you can't get the shows after the 18th (like, why would they?!)

I'm glad too...because we've got snow hitting us this weekend (and since I'm in the "south"- things shutdown...at least it probably will for a few hours unless it doesn't do as they predict)....but that means people should be HOME Saturday- at least the first half of the day! Going to try to call all of my "potential hosts" from last year that never booked/committed.

I wanted to use this blitz as a way to get back into making my contacts and restart my business, but haven't been able to make an abundance of calls. I have probably made about 20 calls, and made contact with about 5. Out of those 5, they want me to call back, or they are not interested. One of my problems is organization. Haven't had the time to organize a list. I am halfway there with the organization today. I plan to make plenty of calls tomorrow.
