Doing Cooking Show For New Recruit

I have a consultant in my downline who has a cooking show scheduled next Friday (the 16th). The host just contacted her today and told her she got online and signed up as a consultant under her. :sing: (They have talked in the past about the business, however the host was not interested.....SURPRISE, she is now!)

Is there any reason that she can not continue to do the show as planned and get credit for it eventhough the host will be considered a consultant at the time of her show?

I told her to treat this as her introductory show and that way any bookings that she receives would get her jump started to qualify within her 30 days and get all of the extra bonuses.

Thoughts?

Thanks,
Karen

It should be the host/consultant's first show - Her "Grand Opening". The recruiting consultant would be there for support and encouragement of her new downline.

The rules are that whoever does the show/demo, is the one that should submit the show and get commission for it. I know some consultants will do it differently and give the show to the host if they sign.

I think it's more beneficial for the newest consultant to do the show herself. She'll get the experience, and get to do her first goofs in front of her friends and family. The recruiter can be there to support and lend a guiding hand.

What if there is a past host involved.....meaning....If the old consultant gives the show to the new consultant/host as a starter show can the past host still purchase the special since it will be sent in under a different consultant?

No issue there. The past host benefit goes with the host not the consultant.

Yes, the booking benefit follows the host, not the consultant. I just did a show for someone who had booked at her friends show, but didn't want the consultant who did her friends show to do her show...the past host was still able to get the host bonus.

I would definatly give this show to the NEW consultant it will be her 1 st (Grand opening show) as the recuter of her I would be there for support help ect

Also all of the Booking should also go to the NEW consultant they are her friends and family that going to be at the Party
They are going to want to support the new Consultant with her new business
This is how we help give the best Trainng so that she will see that we are there for them to grow there business .

Technically you cannot do a show for someone in your downline as the host. So the new consultant needs to do this show. Plus she should be the one to do her own show!

Not the way they explain a LAUNCH SHOW and the way they have been explaing this at NC last year . I even took a work shop that explaind this and this ia what our up line has been doing for a while now .

As long as they have bought there kit they can do the show even it it 10 min befoe the show . We end up doing the show together and it is a traing night too.

I would encourage Recruit #1 to give this show and the bookings to Recruit #2.

I would coach Recruit #2 in how I do my shows, the various ways that she can do a show & let her choose which way she wants to do it & then I would be there to support her & answer any questions that she might have during the event. I've been taught (and agree) that it's VERY important for the new recruit to be viewed as the Consultant at her own show. If she's the "host" and you (or her recruiter) is the "consultant" (on paper or just in the eyes of the guests) then she's sabotaged herself with her own friends, as they still won't view her as a "real consultant" unless she's running the event. Once they see her as an actual PC Consultant, they will refer her to their friends/family and be more apt to purchase from her & host shows with her.

I totally get the fact that Recruit #1 was counting on this to be her start in the business too. Encourage her to get busy on her list of 100 and find some new bookings!!! In the long run, she'll appreciate the promotion & overrides. 1 more recruit and she'll be promoted again to TL. And if she starts off with a bang & has her sales high enough in her first 4 months ... when she gets that 2nd recruit she could be getting HO leads too! I think once she starts to see the little extras on her paycheck, she'll appreciate all of this. And remember, under the current recruiting bonus ... if #2 qualifies in her first 30 days, #1 will get $50 for recruiting vs. $25. ;) Either way, she gets SOMETHING when #2 qualifies. Explain to #1 that this is a GOOD thing! Many Consultants go MONTHS or YEARS trying to get recruits and can't. The fact that she's starting off with a recruit before her very first show is awesome!!! Don't let this get her down, this should be an incentive to do really good and enjoy the benefits of being a Sr. Consultant. :D And, at some point if she decides to give up PC, think of her future resume! She got a promotion before her very first day on the job! How many people can say that??? :D
