I have a host for May who is very excited about a show but...
1. never available via phone or email
2. I sent her a host packet and it got returned
3. I have left messages with family members at her home phone number and on her cell phone.

What to do? I really need this show this month to boost my sale goals. Any advice. I plan to call and leave a message that I can meet her this week for lunch and go over everything then. What do you think? :confused:

No pressure!

Don't pressure anyone with call aftrr call, email after email, etc....
If she wants to do a show, then she'll call you.
I'm not saying that's usually the way it works but we can safely say since she returned your host packet and doesn't ever call or email you back she probably isn't interested anymore.
The best thing to do is to sit back and see if she ever responds based on your messages and emails.
I know I have experienced having to call a host a couple times and after she responded she thanked me for calling her and reminding her about her show. But some people just get cold feet and leave us wondering why they ever said they would love to do a show if they couldn't.
Either way it's their loss. The PC host benefits are FANTASTIC!! So try to go out there and find the ones who won't waste your time or energy.
LEave catalogs everywhere and talk to everyone about your business.

Thanks! I know you are right but I gave up 2 shows for this host. Which it worked out those 2 shows got booked in June. I just really can not stand not hearing anything or just not knowing what is up.

Thanks again!

I agree ayalaa!!
I'd rather hear, "No, I don't think I want to have a party after all" than to never hear back at all! I think it is rude. I never twist any arms... they come to me and want to book... then they ignore me all together!

My hospitality director says this (when we complain about never getting a call back)..."Why are you wasting your time! Find someone who WANTS to have a party!"
And that's true... why try so hard to have someone book a show, if you have to try so hard, then they aren't going to try hard to get a lot of outside orders, and people there at the show... it will be a pitiful little show, and your time is better spent finding someone who is actually EXCITED that they are getting FREE PRODUCTS!

But I do understand... it's hard when you don't have a lot of potential hosts... Make 5 calls a day! to past customers!
Good luck!
