    Anyone want to do a booking blitz this weekend? I work harder if I can work as a team and have motivation to make calls. Let me know and we can start this tomorrow. THanks.

    Ooh, great idea! I have to catch up on host and ccc's, so can we count that? I'll be your accountable person if that helps!

    I'm in! I'll check in here when I start - I'm thinking around 10:00 CST.
     
  4. I'd love to join in, can't start at 10 though, I'm on the west coast. I'd be happy to join you later in the day though.

    My results:

    Messages Left: 10
    Shows booked: 0
    Recruit Leads: 2! (both interviews set for next week)

    I'm going to do some more calls this afternoon and evening and will update my results then.

    Sarah? Did you do your calls? :) Anyone else?

    Kathy, I'm just curious what you say on your messages? I have done out of the box and customer care calls but never a booking blitz. I'd love to try it but dont know what to say. Congrats on the 2 interviews. Fingers crossed they sign!

    On it! I have a 'hot list' of folks I am sure will do a show for me...eventually. I got two shows last time I called; I'm going to push it and fill November and early December. I'm on west coast, so breanna, it's you and me.

    Nice job on the interviews! Wishing you much success!

    I mainly spent the day being lazy. I did make a couple of calls...results:

    6 calls
    1 booking (scheduled meeting up tomorrow)
    1 wrap up call (scheduled meeting and closing tomorrow)
    3 host coaching (one on voicemail)
    1 recruit lead...scheduled an interview, but he called this morning to reschedule due to cold.

    I didn't make calls only because I woke up sick Saturday and spent three days down. I am making mine tomorrow. I am not doing anything until I make at least 20 -30 calls.

    Is anyone doing a booking blitz this weekend? If so I'd like to join in. What time is a good time on the weekends to call?

    I just submitted 2 shows this week(1 was an Oct show so it doesn't count towards the sellathon) and I'm $80 away from the next level. I'd like to either book more shows for Nov/Dec/Jan or get my sales up to the next level for this month.

    I'm running out of ideas for bookings because I haven't had any booths since Aug. and my bookings from my shows I only got 1-2 so I'm calling people that placed outside orders this past summer.

    jj16 I'm in for a booking blitz this weekend. I need to make calls regarding my mystery host show and I'm going to try to book some January shows. I have 2 booked for December and I might just keep those and not look for more since we will likely be moving in December so I want to keep my time open. I'll try for some December catty shows though. I really need to get some sales in for November for sell a thon. I'm already green because I submitted 2 October shows in November but they won't count toward SAT!:( I can't start my calls till about 1pm. I'm at work now until 12:30ish. This will help me actually pick up phone though if I have to report back.

    Didn't have great results but it wasn't all negative.

    1 person was sick but said to call back the 1st part of December
    1 person is moving but wants to place an online order in about a month once she moves. I'd still like to get more bookings but at least I made some calls.

    My Director had a Booking Blitz for us this morning. I am on EST and it was 10-10:30 for some chatting/training/recognition then 10:30-11:30 for calls. She gave us a great script to follow and I got 3 bookings...1 for next Saturday, 1 for December 8th, and 1 for January 9th! I also talked to a lady who was "running out the door" & wants me to call her back Tuesday evening! WOOHOO! I'm attaching the script. I really liked it and it helped me verbalize a lot better! Most of these people were ones I met at the Apple Festival booth I did in October! I also signed my 2nd Recruit on Friday night! GO ME!
