Pampered Chef: Bookings Brain fart

    I know I should know, but I'm seriously spacing out at the moment. How do future bookings from a coking show benefit the host? Do they get additional free product value or does it incrementally bump up their discount percentage?

    They get the host special (60% off product) the month the show was booked.

    It was different back then. That was under the old points system, and they got extra points for each booking. I think it averaged out to about $3 more in product value per booking.


    When we changed to just a Free Product Value $$ - the bookings incentive also changed.
    Now, when someone books from a show - the past host can go to their show and get the host bonus for that month. This is a better deal for everyone for a few different reasons:

    1. Shows are much more likely to hold - because the past host wants her host bonus!

    2. It's worth more - would you rather have $3 more to spend, or the opportunity to get 60% off a product you've really been wanting?

    3. It helps get bookings for more than one month! At a show I did in January, I got 6 bookings - spread out from Feb - May! The host loves this, because she can participate in all 6 shows without spending a bundle! She chooses the host bonus she wants at each show!

    Since changing to this new program, I have not had even one past host complain about this way of handling bookings - in fact, they've all loved it!

    Thanks, Becky!! I thought I was losing it :) This new way does seem much more beneficial to the hosts than the old way :)
