Host Benefits Flyer Example - comments?

Thanks to a DCB demo for some co-workers last week (featuring Keith's Ultimate Fajitas) , I picked up some pretty quick orders, even from former skeptics ("that's so expensive" and "I hate to cook"). The Host Benefits are so fabulous but somewhat dizzying, so I decided to write up an example of what my host got (I gave it to our lowest paid admin who just lost her mother to lung cancer and voluntarily scrubbed out the nasty microwave in the breakroom and the science experiments in the refrigerator. And that would be a cute phrase to use under other circumstances, but I literally work with infectious disease scientists! :cry:).

The show total was decent but still relatively modest. Nevertheless it was an impressive discount, so I thought it would make a good, concrete example to get bookings.

I would appreciate any comments or corrections. Sorry but I can't upload editable version because I did it in Excel and had to PDF it. This file upload system is very suspicious of spreadsheets. But if you send me a msg w your email, I'll be glad to send it directly to you.

Thanks for all the wonderful contributions in general. I just eat this site up!

This rocks, it really helps explain this.
The first two parties I held before my last one as a customer, i just didn't get it. Then when I had a party with my recruiter, all she had to do was put the host benefits flyer in there and I totally "got it"--resulting in a 1200+ show! (and me deciding without being asked that I want to do PC)

I think if the host really understands it, it's like turning on the lights. This flyer is great because it is a detailed real life example and it makes it easy to see how little orders can build up.

I am sending you my email, I'd love to customize this spreadsheet!!

Thanks for all this hard work!

Re: Host Benefits Flyer Example - + Revision 1

Thanks, everyone! Just one tiny THANKS for everything I get from this site.

Oh, and I am an endless perfectionist with these things, so bear with me if I spend another 98% time correcting 2% of the file.

Here is revision 1. I added space for contact info and corrected some column widths, etc. I wish they would allow Excel uploads ....

I'll put my contact info - (am assuming this is safe from trolling web 'bots?)

Have a wonderful weekend and I appreciate your comments!

Sorry, Pampchefsarah... we were typing at the same time. I will try what you have suggested and use PDF escape.

You can also place the Excel sheet in a .zip file, then upload the .zip.

I think it's a great flyer for those who want the details. For my bookings binder that I have for my shows, I just want a quick visual, and I created one page sheets in PowerPoint on which I copied and pasted images of the items on a past hosts's order and then wrote in the Retail Value and what the host paid.

:balloon: No worries, Cathy, since I was only making the suggestion to try to help Margaret. Noora's suggestion is probably better, though, because it really will take a lot of work to make the changes look right in PDF Escape.

Perfect, Noora, I didn't think of that. Thanks for the suggestion. I would also love to see your version. Fair Disclosure: I am a Complexity Junkie, so I'm always having to learn the KISS principle (daily, it seems).

All - Here is the latest zipped version (although I don't mind e-mailing if this doesn't work either)

Download/save to your computer then -
To unzip: Right-click then select "Extract all"
(Not sure about Macs but that should do it for Windows-based Excel)

Chefette--thanks so much! This is great cause it's now easy to customize!

And Noora, I'm sure I'm not the only complexity junkie out there--would love to see your powerpoint. So often I know I am giving too much info, but I don't know what to cut! And I love so many of your ideas.

Thanks to both of you.

Very nice! But you have the host special collapsible bowls at $25 - they're $24.

Re: Host Benefits Flyer Example REV2

(To quote Charlie Brown, "Arrrggghh!")
Thanks for the Host Gift correction from $25 to $24, Beth. That puts one more dollar on the bottom line, at least!
REV 2 attached.

I lost the ones I have hard copies of my binder when my computer crashed, but here's one I threw together from my $1000 show in February.

Thanks, Noora, that's a much faster visual than mine was. However I do still like the interactive idea of having people look up / call out the discounts and such, so maybe I'll come up with a little quiz type thing at differnet levels e.g. $400 -$600 -$800 - $1000. Hmmm....

Thanks, ladies! I never even thought about using something like this, but I know it is going to be very helpful.
