    Cute catalog tote! It's quilted like the Help Whip Cancer bag from last May - which I love and carry as my purse anyway, so this would be great to earn. But I just moved and don't know anyone. I need to get out there and make some contacts!

    This is my first January and so far I have 3 shows on the books. Trying to fill those now.
    but is it normally only such a short period for the points?

    I have shows booked on Jan. 9 and 10. How much will it take to get my hosts to close on the night of their show? I'm already offering them a $30 product for the date of their show if they host before the 15th. I may have to give it to them for free so I can get my triple points. I'm a points whore - I'll do anything for them! Now that I know the details of the Jan. promo, I'm not offering any more incentives to host before the 15th. I will still offer a $29.99 DCB for Jan. hosts b/c usually we get double points in Jan. or Feb. I'm shooting for level 3 next year.

    Cannot wait for the Jan. 4 announcements!!!

    And I want the details on this Dec. 1-10 thing. I'm always up for winning something.

    I'm thinking the same way. I have shows the 7th and 9th, and I'm wondering what incentive I should offer to have them close the night of their shows!

    How are you offering the $29.99 DCB in January? Can you give more details?

    You can do a free cookbook or just find out what is on their wish list and decide how much it's worth it to you to get that show submitted by the 10th and give that to them for free, add a half-price option (though with the extra free product in Jan. this may not be as appealing), ANYTHING to get the show in by the 10th. The only reason I'm earning Disney is b/c of hitting some triple point days and getting double points on one recruit. I had some terrible months this year, incl. this past Jan. and Feb. I want a great start to the year.

    I got the $29.99 DCB idea from my Director. She needed more Dec. shows so offered it for then and immediately booked 2 more Dec. shows. It certainly catches their attention when you announce that at a show. When you do the math, if your host is hitting 25% discount, that brings it down to $51.75. If your commission is 27% (incl. override), that brings it down to $37.78, less the $29.99, it's really costing you $7.79. Of course, with a higher host discount and commission level, you're out of pocket even less.

    At my show on Sun., one of the people who wanted to host already had the DCB so I offered her the product for date of your show and got her for Jan. 10.

    Hmm, maybe Feb. will be double points month like it was years past. I didn't like it when they made Jan. double points month the past year or two.

    I never saw anything on the December thing ... is this something your director might be offering?

    I have a show that's closing Friday that the host is opting to turn in as a December show. Also a show that's closing Saturday the 5th and will be turned in that Monday.

    Ok, Kara and I are in the same overall cluster. I believe the December thing is something our directors are doing.

    Ok- thinking "out loud" here....

    What about offering a Product of their choice- valued up to $70 (cost of a DCB)- and they can get it for maybe "$20.10" for year 2010. Or maybe offer the product for $10 if they hold a show between Jan 2nd and the 10th (closing by the 10th)- ...and then maybe offer something similar for shows between January 10-31st? - Perhaps less valued product- like maybe $50 product instead of $70, or offer still offer the $70 product, but it would be for $20.10.

    Of course- minimum $500 show...or at the VERY least- a $400 show. I'm tired- so putting it all together nicely isn't working so well in my brain, but that's the first idea coming to my head. :confused: Maybe??

    I have one scheduled the 9th & the 23rd right now. Looks like I need to work those phones next week to get some more on there. I don't really want to Dots-on-the-Go catalog tote since I got the one from NC but then this one has more pockets! :) I love the rolling tote! I am on a cane and anything that will roll is super helpful for me!

    wow I love the thought of triple points but since I am new I have fears, I have only missed one goal I have set for myself so far. Unfortunately I only have 1 show booked for Jan but I still have 4 more shows this year so I am hoping t get some bookings. Also I am thinking of doing an email blast with a Jan booking special. With extra free now I have to reword to include closing by the 10th.
     
Have something to add?
