    Just curious how long everyones presentation is. I know it will vary but I dont' want to go too long or too short.

    Presentation time

    My presentation on Saturday was 1 hour and then the recipe was cooked and ready to eat!

    I guess I'd say that mine are usually that length, then the guests mingle, look at the catalog, place there order and leave. I was there probably 4 hours.

    I would like to cut that time down, but haven't figured out how to not stay so long.

    Hope that helps... :)

    Wind bag

    I used to be a wind bag when I first started my business 3 years ago! My shows would go on and on and on! But I teach my consultants to have their show completed in 45 minutes to an hour.

    With one recipe, there is no reason to go any long than that! And when you do go longer the crowd gets anxious!

    25 minutes max

    I swear. I do most of my shows as an Express type show. I pre-prep all of the ingredients at home (I buy for the hosts and have them reimburse the flat $15- or 0 if over $900 show!) and just slice part of a tomato, etc. at the show. I talk about the stoneware, cookware and higher priced items and then get a chance to mingle with the guests. They love the fact that they are in and out in just over an hour and had a blast, didn't feel 'sold' to. My show average is $700, with average bookings per show at 2. Time is precious and I make sure to tell them that.
Have something to add?
