In summary, the conversation discusses ideas for getting more bookings from a book party. Suggestions include offering an extra incentive, highlighting the ease of catalog shows during the holiday season, and planning a "Dollar Days" event in December. There is also discussion about the potential success of these ideas and the desire to earn incentives, such as a cruise.
Maybe offer an extra incentive. I don't usually do this, but it may be the extra boost someone needs this time of year. And really stress that catalog shows are easier this time of year! Everyone likes to do easy shopping for the holidays. And last minute shopping. Maybe include a little flyer for catalog show hosts to include when she passes around the catalog that highlights these. I'm planning to offer an incentive of for any catalog show over $300 (I can't decide...maybe $400???) that they can have an extra 1/2 price stone.
I was also thinking about doing a "Dollar Days" in December for hosts of kitchen and catalog shows. I was going to do it with Simple Additions instead of Stoneware since that was just on sale. So, if someone books a show on Dec. 2nd, they'll get a SA piece for $2. I'm a little scared they'll take me up on that for the Entertaining Set or something, but I'd have to make a minimum requirement. I don't want to put any exclusions on there, like it doesn't apply to the Ent. Set or the Essential Set.
Any thoughts on this?? I'm REALLY trying to have more bookings than ever by the end of the year because I'm getting quite close to earning Level 2 of the incentive program....the CRUISE!!!
maybe instead of saying any SA piece, pick out the piece to advertise and say something along the lines of may be substituted for another product of similar value...this way you keep the same ideal price range, but it's also easier to advertise!
I like the "White Sale" idea. I may need to try that one. I've spoken with some people about the extra 1/2 price item for catalog shows and kitchen shows in December. The only result so far is a couple people thinking about it. We shall see!!!
