    Got this in an email from my Adv. Director. I think I'm definitely gonna try it! I could use all the help I can get setting up bookings right now!


    HAPPY HALLOWEEN BOOKING IDEA...

    Use your kids to help pass these out to your friends and neighbors...everyone LOVES a treat!! Here's a great idea for generating bookings the week before Halloween. I got some clear plastic treat bags from Wal-mart (20 in a package), 3 bags of Whoppers, 1 small bag of Smarties, 1 small bag of Spree candies and 1small bag of smiley face suckers (you could use stickers.) Then I stuffed the bags with 1 of each candy plus my business card. Then I copied the following onto bright orange paper and passed out to friends and neighbors. I only did 40, but if you need more bookings then I would recommend doing more than that. I had great success with this...You could adapt this based on your own budget... Enjoy.?

    To all the MUMMIES: Looking for a WHOPPER of a good time this Holiday Season? Interested in a Pampered Chef Shopping SPREE? Why not host your own Holiday Cooking Show & earn lots of FREE, HALF-PRICE & DISCOUNTED Kitchen Tools? After a great night of food, friends and fun, your guests will surely leave SMILING! So, be a SMARTIE and book your Pampered Chef Cooking Show today! Hope to hear from you soon! Happy Halloween! YOUR CONTACT INFO HERE P.S. The "gHostess with the mostess" in November will receive his/her choice of _________________________ or __________________________! You book it and I'll cook it!

    Is this your trick or treat give-a-way or are you passing out ahead of time to friends/neighbors?

    Does anyone know where to find the Spree candies? I've looked in several stores and can't find them. I'm from the Albany/Saratoga area of NY. Thanks!

    I went out to try & get the supplies for this this past week & could not find Spree or smile-faced lollipops anywhere sop I switched it up a little. I'll attach my little postcard if anyone wants to use it.

    As for who to give them to - I gave some to my neighbor friends and then I've just been keeping a few in my catalog tote so as I'm out at the store & people approach me I give one to them. It has my card in there so if they want to host they can call me or if they just want to place an order they can find my PWS.

    You could always add PayDay or Thousand Grand to it to talk about the business.

  14. I made these too - I also included a mini Fall/Winter catalog in my treats bags along with the little postcard - they turned out really cute!

    I found the turkey chili recipe in the files, but it calls for ground turkey. Is there another recipe that calls for cooked turkey somewhere?

  16. Bobbi, thanks for sharing. Those are wonderful idea! I'm thinking how to get booking since I only have one fundraiser in November and nothing then. It's almost my 3rd moths as PC but seems everything goes really slow. I guess I need to work hard on this selling season!! And, I probably will try some of those idea.

    Don't forget to change the new year to 2010. I have been writing it at work already with a project I am working on...seems strange to see 2010!

  19. I have decided to give my treat bags to the mom's at the homes that we will be trick or treating this year. When my girls trick or treat a house, that person will also get a treat... my treat bag has candy and Michelle's flyer that is attached above and a recipe card with my information on it (I am using these for business cards until I get my website, when I'll order the Merrill business cards). Hopefully this will strike up a little interest as I am new and my calendar is empty for November and I only have one booking for December.

    I tried a similar idea when I sold jewelry ... I got a bag of candy and put it in a baggie with a poem and distributed it door to door. But I didn't talk to anybody, which was my crucial downfall.

    I worked on Halloween so I could not do this ... I seem to ALWAYS work on the day they distribute candy!
