How Far do you go?

Hi,

I am a new consultant and one of my shows is almost 45 miles away from my house. It is my 1st show after a show drought. I couldn't get anyone to book in June. I really need this show, but what do I say to the Host to get her to make sure that people show up? It has to be worth my while and hers if she wants anything in benefits. I don't want to get there and find out that nobody shows up. I'm sorta worried about this and I explained to the Host that there needs to be plenty of people there not only to take off the pressure of buying alot, but just to make it worth while for both of us. Any suggestions? HELP?

Thanks in advance! : :eek:

I do quit alot of shows that are 45miles away and farther. I really push outside orders with these hosts. I give them a goal to meet like get $300 in outside orders and I will give her a special gift. It has worked really well. One time the outside orders were more than the show. Try that and see if it helps you a bit. Good luck.

I think this is a great idea. I will try it.What kind of a special gift do you offer? :)

Thanks again!

Well, I do different things. Sometimes I order something for the host on her order around $15.00 worth. I usually only pay around $10. for it. I also sometimes use things that I have earned but don't need. I only have so much room for pc items and I hate for things to just sit there. Last party I gave the set of patriotic gift towels to the host. It was a great party and she really worked hard. I didn't want or need the towels. Another time I gave a batter bowl. Whatever you think is best. Good luck!

Traveling

I also do quite a few shows out of town (I even flew to Virginia from Wisconsin for one, but that was for my sister and I was visiting anyway :) ). I offer an incentive of "gather five outside orders or a booking before the show, get a $20 value gift of your choice". If it's the booking, I wait until that new host has her show in order to reward the current host. Just to show you that it can be worth it to travel, I did a show that was about 45 miles away. The host only had two guests (the show was the day after the September 11th tragedy), but she had $450 in outside orders. One of the guests was actually not even invited, but she was a sister of the guest that was; that "uninvited" guest booked a show and subsequently became a successful consultant (in fact, she introduced me to this site). So...you never know what's waiting for you at your next show!

Good luck!
Diane

P.S. While I'm traveling to my long distance shows, I listen to PC tapes. It's better than listening to Raffi and the Wiggles I hear all day with the kids! ;)
