I would like to know how it goes as well. I would like to try it as I am on vacation the last week of June, so I will set it up for one of the days I am home.

I'm hoping to get bookings with the June give away days flyer but if that doesn't work I will try this sale the last week for June to try and boost last minute sales!!

thanks!

Kristi,
I definately want to know how your sale goes. Are you mailing these as flyers or sending them as e-mails? I would love to do something like this but I have a feeling I wouldn't get much of a response unless I called everyone to remind them of my sale or something like that.

I have never done something like this before. I'm excited to try it and can't wait to see how it turns out. My thoughts on doing it so soon is that it is still fresh in my customers mind and if I give them too much time, they'll forget. I plan on sending this out tomorrow and see if I get a good response from this a couple days early. I'm hoping it does well but we'll see!:p

Oh, I'm only doing this by e-mail so hopefully it will be word of mouth!

This sounds like fun! I was going to do a bingo next week; since I couldn't get any takers on shows that week, but I may do this instead! Sounds like less work, maybe! Let us know how it goes!

I did one back in December, and ended with a $706 show:D . It helped that it was right before the holidays, and a lot of people bought gifts. I pretty much followed Kristi's outline in the first post (I got it from here), but did it in the afternoon and evening. Next December, I'm going to make it a lot shorter time frame - maybe 2 1/2- 3 hours. I got too antsy sitting around waiting for the phone to ring, although it certainly paid off. I also did it only via e-mail (I e-mailed the invitations from my website), no snail mail.

Good luck!!

Why not say that anyone who orders $60 or more gets the free ice cream maker & half priced shipping? Or if anyone orders early, they'll get 5% off. It sounds like a fun sale. I'd probably consider doing a 8am-noon sale.... but I have a hard time sitting home all day. Hmmmm maybe I could do this AND declutter at the same time.....

Good luck!

Thanks for letting us know of your AWESOME outcome Diane! I hope mine does half of that! I just sent it to 525 people so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that i get a couple bites! I did a bonus time as well. I added if the place an order by e-mail or my website between 6-10 (I'll be at a show) then they'll get a free SB cookbook. I changed the men's hour to the great grilling cards free. I'll post my results on Saturday after my show!

Thanks for the encouraging words!:D

That's a great idea Susan! Only too late for me now. I'm hoping it will spark some interest and be able to add the sales onto my aunts show on Saturday! :D

I like your sale idea. Just a quick ? does that 10% apply to professional cookware? I wanted to create a sale like yourself but have been reluctant b/c didn't want to reduce my earnings by giving so much for free. Hope you yield lucrative results!

It sure does! I did that for all of May and only had 1 person use me on it. Hey, if I can get a $100 sale on professional cookware, I don't mind giving them $10 off when I'll still make $17 more. I plan on hitting $10k this month for a 27% commission rate.:D

WOW! 525 people! I wish I knew that many people! This has encouraged me to meet more people. My husband has been telling me that my problem is that I am fishing from the same small fish bowl. I need to expand and reach more people! I have a goal now to have 525 people to email in December! :D

My director did this sale in November, because she was having a lot of cancelations and had over a $700 show. You never know just think positive!:D

Good Luck, and I hope it is a huge success for you!

Ask everyone for their e-mail address at your shows. Also, if you have the website, there is a place for your hosts to add their friends e-mail addresses and you can click on it to add their name and address to your database. I've only been doing PC for 13 months so I'm extremely happy to have that many contacts!:D

Now, I'm just waiting for 10:00 to come but I think my best hour will be between 2-3 but we'll see! :D

Whenever I add people's emails to my mailing list without asking, most get upset. We need to add that to our order forms and survey slips.

my director has over 1000 contacts....wish i could just get a couple hundred

At my shows, I tell the guests that if they will provide their email address, I will send them the recipe(s) I make...since I started doing that, I get emails from just about everybody. I also mention that I do have an email newsletter that I send out...

In fact, on my drawing slip, I have a little disclaimer at the bottom that says "Your information will never be sold or given to another party. Thank you." It lets them know that I am not passing their information out.

I have attached it...It was created in publisher, so am attaching in "jpeg" format...

Hope this helps...

I make my own prize drawing slips for my shows. Similiar to the PC ones, but I tweaked mine a little; I put a place for their email & under it ask if they want to be on my monthly email list.

Nicole, great drawing slip! I like the responses they can choose, instead of yes-maybe-no. Very creative:)

Mine looks like it's closing at the $300 level. I only have 68 contacts on my website though, PLUS I send out the email yesterday.

It is $300 more than I would have had. I will be doing this again during Dec.

That's great Brooke! I guess I didn't realize you were doing it but am glad that you had such a great response! Better than me I would say!;)

Right now I have $87 in sales but have 5 people that said they wanted to order with me today and I haven't heard from them yet so I'm going to call them now! I also had a surprise today with a show that I went to and she only had one lady show up and she placed an $75 order. Well, guess what? She called me today to close her show out and we are closing her show out at $377 right now! Not too bad in a days work! Can I count that as my phone sale?!:p I'll post later and let you know what it finally closes at. I did put on there that they can place an order through 10 tonigt to get a special!:)

I did the phone sale thing. Right now, my sales are at 235. in guest sales. So not too bad, hopefully I will reach the 250. I will add something if I don't get anything else. Now the 250 is for the guest sales right? Not the show total.. I think that is right.. Anyway.. hope everyone sale goes well.:D

Great show Mary!!

Kristi,
Great closing for your show!!! As far as the phone sale goes its $87 more than you had yesterday. Maybe some couldn't order till tonight!!

How did you get all of those contacts? From your receipts or do you transfer them from you hosts who use your website?

Thanks brooke and Congratulations Mary! That's fantastic! :D

I get my contacts from receipts, DPDS and contacts from my website. It's turned out a pretty good number, I really didn't think that I had that many!:p ;)

I'm trying this idea too. Mine is Friday so I'm hoping it does well. I don't know many people and am struggling to get my June going. I handed out flyers about the sale today and saw some interest but so many people had friends that are PC consultants so it's hard to tell what will happen.

I am trying this, this Friday also. I hope it goes well as I haven't had much luck getting the other 2 bookings I need for my sales. I just sent out an email about it & I'm thinking about putting an ad in the paper....
Kristi, what was your final number?
