    I am a new SAHM with twins and have been doing PC for 4 years. I am a hobbyist consultant but want to change that so I can become a director! :D

    I am wondering what you all put in a hostess packet. I am trying to cut or minimize expenses. Currently I put in a 10x13 envelope with PC label on the front: 3 or 4 catalogs, some order forms from PC (the old ones), some outside order forms (off the website), hosts never pay full price flier, host/guest special flier, recipe cards and any invitations they need to hand out. I ask them for their guest list and I mail the invitations for them and also send out the email invitations via my website. Thanks in advance.

    oh I too include the show planner - forgot that.

    mine currently have show planner, hostess tic tac dough, a tale of 2 hostesses, 40 names and addresses sheet, 40 guests in 4 minutes, a wish list, and If I'm dreaming, don't wake me (great recruiting tool) all in the 3 prongs, 3-4 catalogs, host/guest specials, outside order forms, and a business card in the left pocket, and the recruiting brochure in the right pocket.
    I will also be including the attention monthly host flyer ine the left pocket as well. I recently found a bunch of useful flyers on this site that I want to start using, I just have to limit myself on the month specific flyers b/c I like to have the 3 prong section done on a bunch of folders along w/ catalogs, business card, and recruiting brochure so that when I need to, all I have to do is put the host/guest specials and outside order forms in them. It makes it easier b/c I don't have to re-do my packets every month, I have a stock of them done and just add what I need as I need them. Hope this helps and if you need any flyers I mentioned, just let me know and I will e-mail them to you.
     
  3. Sharisse,

    Check out RECYCLABLE HOSTPACKET in Host coaching catagory. There are many, many, many, tips on what we all put in our host packet. When just starting out I went by the outline in Recipe for success. As time went on I made my packets a little more full, but definitly worth it. My all time tip is to purchase the host reminder stickers at nancy's artwork and the refridgerator reminder post cards. Many hosts have said it helped them to call and send out their invites.

    Lauren - if you could email me those that would be great.

    Rebecca - I did briefly look at that post, will revisit that later today to get more ideas. I have been doing this for 4 years very very part time but want to do it more full time and just wanted to get some more ideas of what to include in my host packets. I didn't want too much. I do use the postcards from Nancy's Artworks - they are wonderful!!!

    sharisse, I just tried to resend them, so hopefully they will go through

    Ann, I generally meet with my hosts in person to give them their packets, it seems to show more success when you meet in person to share the enthusiasm. The only folders I mail are the out-of-town catalog show folders. With those, I really have no choice and I really couldn't tell you how much those cost b/c I don't remember and there is a completely different set up for those.

    The majority of my shows are out of town. With the new host benefit program, my bookings get really strung out. I hate to give them a packet at the show from which they booked if their own show is 3 months away. (afraid they'll misplace it..). Thanks for the info, tho!
