    Hi! I have been with PC for a year but cannot get many parties booked or get my business running. I am getting ready to do my first Vendor Event and do not even know what I should do other than have items to showcase. Should I put sales packets together, a raffle, what?

    Also, does PC have a place where I can buy shirts, other items? If I am out at the grocery store or something, and I am wearing a shirt that says I sell PC or something, just maybe someone would see and say hey, I need to buy something!!! I need new ways to promote. This is an extra job while I work full time and have a family. But when I retire, I'd like PC to be my full time job!

    Thanks!

  3. Hi Ann! I just recently did my first Sip & Shop vendor event! I was provided with a small card table to display some of my most favorite items. I used my laptop that converts to a tablet to display the host and guest specials for the next three months. I placed catalogs as well as the PC slips for individuals to fill out. I tried to attach a photo, but I'm not having any luck in doing so. I would suggest having at least three host packets in place, if not a couple more, for those who have an interest in hosting a virtual or in-home cooking show. This event had swag bags, which meant that each vendor placed their business card with a percentage off, "x" amount off, BOGO, sample product, etc. From Hobby Lobby, I purchased the pretzel treat bags for $3.99. My business card fit perfect and inside each bag I also placed a Twix-It Clip. I also handed out Paring Knives and Pan Scrapers (these required a larger more square bag). At the end of the event we were given the items that did not get handed out. We also did a door prize drawing and I used a Season's Best with a $20 gift certificate attached inside. Gift certificate expires in three months and is redeemable with myself only.

    As for logo wear, you can search PC Gear that is found on Consultants Corner. They have anything and everything to help you get started. Good luck with everything!
