I've have been asked if I would like to have a booth at a women's conference that our denomination hosts every year for the women in our state. There will be no cost for the booth, however, they have asked for a percentage of any sales on that day. Since there will be women from all over our state, booking a lot of shows (cooking) may not be an option. I will certainly be offering catalog shows but we all know that they can be "iffy".

I have thought about taking a few things to sample, such as sauces w/cream cheese, dips and possibly some oil dipping seasoning & bread.

Since I've never done a booth, any suggestions about how to proceed with this will be greatly appreciated.

So what's wrong with taking orders and having sales from it? Turn it into a show, girl! But you can certainly book shows locally....there will probably be a lot of women that attend locally...

I think its a great opportunity! Especially cuz its free!!!!! I got invited to an event in our area - they said they have been looking for a PC person for years.....I was soooooooo excited....they emailed me the info & its $150 for a table!?!?! Are you kidding me!!!!! That is insane! I could see forking out $40 maybe....but I just think $150 is way tooooo high!
I would take a few of your top selling items, maybe some sauces/dips for tasting & put on a big flashy smile! You got this girl! Pass out old catalogs to all of them w/your website on them! That way they can look at all the products & then shop from your website!

I plan to make it a show but since it's in March and one of the guest specials will be the Grill Pan/Press set for $149, I'm thinking that if someone orders that, I'll add a SBRB to it and let it be there on show. :love: They will get the host benefit of 10% off for a year and if anyone else from their church would like to place an order, I can add it to that show which will help the original customer out even more, plus it will help on the direct shipping expense. ;)

Any other tips, ideas or advice would be welcomed.
