I agree. I have started PC in October and I am really having a hard time getting bookings. The ones I do get tend to want to back out. Any suggestions?
I don't ask host for money for the postage I trade them the page(s) of stamps I used for their invitations for full ones. I just tell them - to make this easy for you I will send your invitations, just get a couple sheets of stamps before the show and the day of the show I will trade you, when you get 40 or more names I will even cover the postage cost. I also print a full sheet of their return address labels and what ever I don't use I give them - I don't tell them about this before the show.
