Pampered Chef: Sales How long should a catalog show last?

  1. If I'm mailing catalogs for out-of-town catalog show hosts today, when should I tell them to have all of the orders collected so we can close the show? I don't want to rush them, but I also don't want it to drag on forever. What's a good length of time that a catalog show should last?

    Usually 2 weeks is the ideal....but I have to admit, I've had them go all month before! *uggh*

    It's for November, right?
    If so, a good cutoff date might be 11/13, it will be a smidge less than 2 weeks, but a little longer than a week!

    I usually run mine 2 weeks as well. I like to keep it simple 11/1-11/15 or 11/15-11/30. Those are typically the options I will offer. GL!

    I just started but I've been doing two weeks, same kind of dates as kdangel said.
    And looking at your 30th day I would say that the ones you are mailing today should be returned to you by the 13-14th so you can get them submitted before the 30th.
    Good luck
