    Well just thought I'd let ya all know that this weekend my booth at the clothing store didn't produce any leads. My give away was for a free cooking show. I mostly showed the starter kit. I didn't even get anyone who would sign up. I was there from 11:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m. Oh well - lesson learned a lot of time and energy wasted.

    I did one of these and didn't have any luck either. I wondered if it was becuase people weren't really expecting me to be there. A lot of people asked if I was a caterer serving food...they were confused as to why there were other vendors there.

    I did one in a Dress Barn, got two dated bookings and two hot recruit leads. I had the Spicy Pineapple Rum Sauce over cream cheese, both bread dipping seasonings in oil and french bread cubes to entice people over. I did a drawing for the DCB (actually had a couple other small booths coming up and combined all of them for the drawing) and talked it up as the Magic Pot (Magic Chicken) and talked about doing the Mexican Chicken Lasagna at my April shows. It is all in how you talk to people. Giving away a free show is only good for those people who know right then that they are interested in hosting a show. I highly suggest you have something everyone wants, like the DCB, or a $25 shopping spree so they can get what they want. Offer the free show to those who say yes or maybe on their drawing slip - of course, ask everyone when you contact them. Most people don't understand what a "free show" is and can get confused. I had a lady come up to me and ask me how much it cost for me to come do a cooking show for her and her guests - I told her it was free, just needed a guest list and some ingredients. She was floored!

    I agree with this! I don't mention free kitchen shows until I follow up with them.
