Pampered Chef: Bookings Booking tree???

    OKay so I am still in my first 30 days of PC! and I have my first cooking show coming up. I was trying to think of an idea of how to get more bookings from my first few shows. I think I remember seeing something on here about a booking tree. Where you would put the dates you are available and then offer a special gift or something?? Well what do you make your 'tree' out of? I am stumped as to how to get that to work out! Any ideas suggestions would be great!!

    If you scroll to the bottom of this page, you will see several threads with lots of info about that subject!

    I've used a picture holder with clips for 5-6 pictures, and clipped on flowers with a date on them...sorry I can't be more descriptive - but there are probably pictures with some of the ideas below...

    Go to Target or Michaels/craft store and find a photo holder with arms. There are some cute ones out there with lady bug / floral / spiral themes. The specific tool you are talking about may also be at The Container Store or Packaging Specialties.

    Or - why not use a Stainless pan or skillet and a magnet?
    Or - a Sheet Pan and a magnet?

    Keep it simple. Be easy to replicate. It not only makes it easier/more fun for you, but easy for others to 'see themselves' doing what you do. Recruit as soon as you possibly can - you get paid more sooner, and it's more fun with others along for the ride.

    OOHH, Scott, I like the idea of the sheet pan and magnet. They now have some really cute magnets and it's a great way to show off the sheet pan that I never use at shows.

    Keep it simple. You want others to think "Oh, I could do that so much better than she does". The round utility silver magnet is probably better than a really cute one...
