Pampered Chef: Sales Black Friday Sale Vs Invited Guest to Upcoming Shows

    I really want to put out the Black Friday/Cyber Monday email to my contact list. I'm offering free delivery to my house or a $4.25 credit. My dilemma is I don't want to compete with my hosts who will hold shows in the next few weeks. I'm thinking about omitting those names I know who are invited to the shows.

    I'm just wondering what others have done in the past. This is my first Black Friday I've been a PC consultant.

    I just sent the email to everyone! You don't want to leave anyone out, you never know what will happen.

    I'm curious too. I use iContact and so I don't know how to deselect certain people. I just sent it to everyone. I have one catty show going on right now and the host will have just gotten my sale notice. I also have a show on Dec. 12th, so I'm hoping this doesn't hurt or annoy my hosts. Hopefully they'll think of it as a typical Black Friday sale that every store/business seems to do and won't hold it against me. We'll just have to see, I guess.

    When I sent mine out, I purposly left out the hosts/guests I knew were coming up in the week before & after the sale. I didnt want my hosts to get the short end of the stick so to speak
  5. I also have a quandry about the Black Friday thing... My Mystery Host (open house) is the very next weekend and I sent invites to EVERYONE on my contacts. I guess I'll have to pass on this opportunity unless I just hit my contacts from out of town?:confused:

    I think your Mystery Host Show is a much better bet for sales and bookings than the Black Friday deal.

    I tried the Black Friday thing for a couple years, and never got a huge response....and what I did get didn't really help my paycheck, since I had to give such deep discounts. I've decided it's just not worth it for me, and I just enjoy the weekend off with my family now.

    Today, though, I've received Black Friday sales emails from a Mary Kay Consultant, a Southern Living Consultant, a Silpada Consultant, and a BeautiControl Consultant (and all are basically the same thing that I've seen posted on here)...so I'm thinking that if others are being inundated with these emails the way that I am, that it would lose it's impact rather quickly.

    Leslie, I thought this was a great idea! I don't want my near future or near past hosts or guests to think they got a raw deal. So I sent it out to everyone else this morning.

    When I mentioned to a few customers I was going to do this earlier in the week, one called me and placed an $80 order. The other woman I will follow-up with Friday to make sure she received my e-offer. So here's hoping it'll qualify as a show, otherwise my Monday night host will get a boost in sales!
