I just started selling PC and I have had a couple of shows, I just started selling PC and I have had a couple of shows, mostly catalog and they have been around $300. But, last night I had my first REAL kitchen show. I was so excited, a little nervous, but on the bright side there was 12 people there and one person came early and got catalogs to take to her friends, and one took one after the party to get extra orders. I told people about the Guest special, and I was also running my won special promotion if they spent $75 they would be entered in a drawing for a free food chopper. I thought that it was a great idea. I was so pumped and excited. I got 1 booking and a friend of one of the people who attended wanted to do a show too, so that is pretty exciting. However, when I went to add up all of the orders...they were all around $20. She barely made it to $150. Here I had thought that with all of these people, I would have a larger party. My host has had parties before, so I thought that she would have had a larger party... So my husband is thinking that maybe doing catalog parties is the way to go. I tried to tell him that it is easier to buy things that are more expensive when you can see them and feel them. But all of the work that I put into to it, I just don't know if it was worth it. I know I should be discouraged, but it's scary. Does anyone else have this problem? Any suggestions on what to do? I did find on here some host coupons....I think that I am going to toss them inside my host folder. Hopefully that will help.
