I was wondering how do you get bookings from a book party? There is the obvious those who say they want a party. Do you make phone calls???? What do you say??? Right now I seem to have a lot more book parties then live shows and I am getting desperate for bookings!!!

I call them all. If they don't have their numbers on the order forms, I get it from their checks. I tell all my hosts that I must have numbers for everyone paying with check or credit card.

I say; "Hi Jane, This is Donna with The Pampered Chef! How are you?" I normally hear the skeptical "I'm fine and you?" They are always kind of dreading what I'm going to say next. Then I say, "Oh, I'm doing great. I got your order from Susie Host and I just wanted to call and say thank you for you order and ask if you had any questions about what you ordered?" Most of the time they say no, if they have questions then I do everything I can to answer them. Then I go on to talk about Susie's FREE STUFF! "Ok, well please, make sure you call me if you have any questions or concerns. My contact info will be on your receipt. Make sure to keep that under your silverware tray in case there is ever an issue with your products. Has Susie Host told you how much she earned for FREE? She got $XXX in merchandise for FREE not counting her half priced items and unlimited discount. Isn't that great?" They always say yes! Then I say, "Well, have you ever thought of gathering together your friends and hosting a show of your own?"

Well that's what I say. Hope it helps.

drawing slips

I tell the host to give out prize drawing slips to everyone that orders. Then I draw for a small prize like I would at a cooking show. That way you can get in touch with those 'yeses' and 'maybe's'. I just started doing this a couple months ago. Have only had 1 book party, got one that might do a show in the fall, and got 3 to add to my monthly email I send out.

I like that idea I'm going to have to try it

I haven't done this yet but this is what I've been thinking about to get more out of my catalog shows. I am going to include a flyer for my host which states that if they:

*Have a $500 show they will get an additional $10 in Free product value.
*Get at least 2 people to book their own show and get an additional $10 in FPV.
*Get both the $500 show AND at least 2 bookings they will get a total of $25 in FPV on top of the regular Host Rewards Program!

I'm still trying to figure out the exact amounts I want to give away. Also by doing it this way I can hopefully be getting more shows and higher sales from my catalog shows!
