A few have said they won a new product at Launch. After the 12th I'll start a thread to hear what people won. My fingers are crossed to win the free conference hotel. Reports from the other launches? Do we have a winner amongst us?

I won a new product. :D I guess there was certain criteria to be entered in the drawing for the hotel stay that I didn't meet, what was the criteria again?

C, SC and TL had to have $1250 in sales in December and attend SL
D and above had to have $5000 in team sales in December and attend SL

Thanks for a refresher on the criteria. That makes sense. I was thinking that it would be a waste (I'm sure I'll get slammed on that word choice) to award it to someone who won't even think about going to conference. Looks like they're trying to give it to someone more likely to use it. Sure, someone who doesn't submit much may still want to go to conference. But what I love about Launch is that it gives people who are more casual a chance to get HO training without the time and money investment of going to conference. Got my fingers crossed that I win b/c I'm on the fence about going this year. See, I'm a prime candidate to win.

We all forgot the criteria until they reminded us! It was a long time ago.

I guess maybe they are figuring that someone who may be hestitant to go might actually go if they get something out of it (who would turn down a free hotel room!). Then they still have a chance to earn free conference.

Unless you are a D, AD, or SD. Those three levels do not have an opportunity to earn free conference this year. Exec and above get it free as a perk.

Beth,
The consultant sales promotion flyer says that TL through Senior Directions can earn FREE registration with $5000 in commissionable sales from March 1-31. Did something change at SL?

Well, I stand corrected! I even discussed this with my director (SED level) and her response was like "directors are expected to go...". It must be the drugs I'm still on. lol

Thanks for correcting me!!

Yup, TL - SD have to earn it in one month while C and SC have 2 months to earn free conference. While I'm a TL so it's tougher, I like that C and SC have longer to earn it. Conference reg. isn't that cost that makes it tough - it the hotel and airfare.

Minirottie - please send your cluster's good vibes my way! Our team did pretty well with winning products last year.

The earning levels are just different for TL and above for March.

C and SC earn $50 off with every $1250 they submit.
TL and above earn $100 off for submitting $2500 and FREE Conference Registration for sumbmitting $5000!

I do love that C and SC have 2 months to earn it! Most haven't been and so they often don't get how awesome an opportunity it is - getting it free or even half price is a good dip out of the cost for them and will be the thing that makes the decision as to whether they go or not. Hotel is just (about) $50 per night in downtown Chicago if rooms are shared with 4 people and that is not much in the scheme of things. Airfare/travel costs just depend on where you live and the deals you can get. Even if you have to pay full price it's worth way more than the upfront cost. There are lots of statistics out there that show that those who attend are more likely to have more shows, more sales and promote than those that don't. AND it's fun!

We applied for a Southwest Visa Card and got a free round trip ticket so my fare is paid for and my flight is booked for Chicago! My March calendar will be loaded for that free registration.....now I just need my name to get pulled for free hotel and I am set! Then I can spend my bucks on a Coach bag.....LOL Just kidding..no way is a purse worth that much!

Our group had 2 long tables of us at SL. No one won any of the drawings. One of girls had to leave about an hour early b/c she was nursing, and of course she was drawn for the hotel, but you had to be present to win. On the other hand, there was one table in front of us full of a group from out of state, and almost everyone in that group won something throughout the day.
Most of us earned a bunch of the stuff, so we can't be too disappointed, but their group had 1 or 2 drawn for every thing. kinda crazy
