    I just set up my website yestderday, I am very excited. I have been also going to all of your websites just to see how others have theirs set up. How is the website working for everyone?

    When I got mine (not even a month ago), I had some labels made up to stick on my catalogs. I stick it right on the front so no one can miss it. I use to work for a large printing company (one of the largest in the US), so I have connections and was able to get a good deal. They print all of the labels for companies like Office Depot, Kinkos, Pip Printing.....etc. I ordered a 1 x 3 label on white gloss opaque (the opaque keeps anything from showing through the label) with blue ink. It says "To view our monthly specials, or to place an order at any time, visit my personal website at www.pamperedchef.biz/jenniferbagshaw". I could of have printed some on my computer, but these look so much nicer. So far I haven't gotten any orders, but I am keeping my fingers crossed since it is getting close to Christmas.

    I also heard that another consultant emails the guests and the outside orders after the show and personally thanks each one for their order and gives them her web address. It gives that personal touch. I am going to start trying that.

    I have had mine for some time now. I have found it to be useful for my shows. I have collected several outside orders through it. Basically I got word of my site out by placing a link to it in my email sig which goes out on every single email. I also made up some labels for my catalogs, which I use now instead of stamping them. The label has all my contact info, email address and says "Visit my website...Phone and Online orders always welcome". I have pointed this info out to guests at my shows. The last show I did, two customers actaully went home and added to their orders the next day via my site! :) Good Luck!

  5. We finally got our debit card number & was able to set up our website today. Are there any tips on what to do & not do regarding using your website? How can you get it to increase your sales?
     
  6. I'm in my second SS month now, & I got a website in Sept. When my sister did a catalog show for me last month, we sent out an e-mail to all of our far-away friends & relatives, & got two web orders from relatives in CA (my sister is in NJ, I live in VA). Pretty cool! Mainly, though, the most use I've gotten from the website has been to have people RSVP for the shows through it--they seem to think it's pretty easy to do that. I hope people start ordering more through it--I have it advertised on my catalogs, business cards, all my outgoing e-mails--everything I can think of!

    Website Cost?

    For someone thinking about becoming a consultant, what's the cost for having your own website? :confused:

    it may sound exspensive, but it is well worth it and you don't have to have a creative mind to create it. I hardly did anything with mine..I just started adding news to mine...the rest is set up by pampered chef and you just have to choose a template and they take care of the rest. You can add stuff, but it is definitely not necessary.

    Website Emails

    When I have been emailing my hosts from my website, they are ending up in their spam folders. I tested this myself with the same bad luck. Any tips? :mad:

    Jennifer's idea is a good one. I also put labels with my web address on my catalogs, recipe cards, invitations -- everything I can think of. I'm a do-it-yourselfer, so I printed them at home on Avery label stock.

    Be sure to include your web site address in your email signature, too. Send an email thanking each customer for their order. Little touches like that take the impersonal nature out of online sales. One of my contacts, after purchasing products online and getting a thank-you email from me, wrote back very excited about this new way to buy Pampered Chef. She said she would send my email and web address to everyone she knows! We'll see if that results in more sales, but it was very rewarding to get the positive feedback.

    are they going to your spam or are you not recieving them at all? i just called tech support and they said the servers were down due to them updating the web site so to give it 24-48 hrs and try again. i know mine is not going to spam cause i can look in the folder and it is not there. i hope i helped with your question :)
