Pampered Chef: Bookings I got 4 bookings!

  1. I just had to celebrate. Usually I visit chefsuccess to look for answers and help with my shows and customer care. But today I just wanted to share my excitement. I had a show last night with 6 guests and it was the best show I've ever done! When I got there, my host already had $180 in outside orders. We did an interactive show, and when it was all over, I had 4 bookings and it was a $600 show, and its not even closed yet! I was so excited I had a hard time falling asleep last night! I'm just so proud of myself. Thanks for listening!

    It's such an awesome feeling, isn't it???? Let it be contagious! Talk to those guests TODAY and ask them if they had any questions about the PC opportunity that they didn't have a chance to ask last night. Those big MAC calls make a difference!!!

    Don't let that discourage you. I find that large shows often have low bookings. People look around and say, "I can't fit this many people in my house." It intimidates them.

  9. Thanks everyone! The show was a blast! I think what made a difference was the fact that I didn't stress myself out beforehand. I was very relaxed and I think it showed. It was an interactive show and we made the three cheese garden pizza together. And I made a chicken in the DCB. (This was a huge hit!) It was easier to get everyone involved because we gathered in the kitchen (no chairs), and made it right on the counter. Then everyone sat and shopped and ate while it was cooking. I got two orders that were over $100 each.

    The next day I sat at a bingo for 5 hours and got practically nothing. Two orders that didn't even total $70, and no bookings. I guess we just never know what how things are going to work out. But I'm not letting it get me down, I am looking forward to my next show!

    Wahoo to youuu!

    Once, I had a show with 18 guests - no bookings and $450 in sales. I agree with Rae, it must have been intimidation. Then I have a catalog show with $800 in sales - yippee! Don't let it discourage you . . .
