At this time of year, I"m going back and calling EVERYONE who expressed interest in having a show. I'm talking up the Jan and Feb host specials, although at this point I have six for Jan, so I'm focusing on Feb. Even if someone wanted to host a YEAR ago, but never got around to it because it wasn't a good time, I'm calling them. One of the ones I just booked was someone I met back in March! So, 11 months later, she's finally doing her show.plichte said:Here is one thing I have always wondered. I know CC calls are extremely important and I am trying to work them into my plan, I am actually doing fairly well. But, when you say I am going to try and make 5-6 per day, who are you calling? Just those who marked yes or maybe on their survey slips, or everyone you have in your contacts, or,...... I call people who have marked maybe or yes on their survey slip but I didn't know about calling people at random out of my contacts, they indicated previously no on their slip otherwise they would be on my potential host list. So, I was just curious. I would love to start filling up my calendar, but, since I am still not a veteran, I don't have a ton of potentials.
You're welcome! You can even mention the GUEST special to them too and remind them they don't have to be at a show to place an order. (But you'd need to add the order to a show so they get the guest special, under the new policies). Then if you're also mentioning what's on sale for everyone, it doesn't seem like you're only asking for bookings. Do you have a website? I've read more and more about people offering a little quiz question or something under one of the news items on their website. Then they direct people to their website to search for that question and answer it by them contacting you through your website or email. Tell them you'll change it every month to keep traffic coming to your website.plichte said:Thank you! I was thinking maybe I was missing something by way of customer care calls. I guess as my business continues to grow my potentials will get more and more. Calling past customers is a good idea, just to check in and see how things are going. Thanks again!
