I am having a hard time finding people to host shows. I have only had two kitchen shows, one person showed up to the first one, and two people showed up for the second. At the first show, the guest didn't even order anything, although she seemed really excited. Fortunately, the host had a large outside order, so the show qualified. The second show went a little better, the guests each bought quite a bit, the show ended over 600. Because these two shows had such ridiculously low turnouts, I am running out of leads fast! My family is pretty tapped out, and I am a stay at home mom. We recently moved here so I know NO ONE. I tried to set up a booth/table at a local craft fair (I live in a small town, only ~10,000 people), but missed the cut-off date. I don't have any shows on the books, although I am planning on an Open House in January, and may possibly have a catalogue show coming up in the New Year, too. I am completely (sort of!) OK with not getting any of the SS bonuses, but I would really like to get some darn bookings! I have tried cold calling people from the phone book (not a great experience), doing a healthy options demo at the local Curves, dropping off catalogs and rings/wreaths/veggie trays/cookies at several local businesses, holding catalogs when out in public, emailing everyone I know... I just don't know what else to do. I have really been trying to put an optimistic spin on everything-- how great was it that my first two shows only had a few people, so I didn't get nervous?!? But that only takes you so far before you feel like you are deluding yourself. Anyway, thank you for reading this, I really needed to share. Hopefully this will encourage me to keep trying and get more creative! Any ideas would be greatly appreciated-- I really like doing this and want to be successful.
