Pampered Chef: Sales Increasing Catalog Show Sales

  1. Good evening! Does anyone have any success with Catalog show sales? They are nice to do since you don't have to leave the comfort of your home, but my sales are usually avg $200.

    Any suggestions?

    add an accentive...

    i would add some kind of accentive for doing a catalog show...maybe if there show reaches 300...i would add like an extra 10.00 in free product or something....most of my catalog shows run about 350-400 now. When you give something to the hosts for doings such a good job it just makes thems want to do so much more...the first show i done this with a gave a mini chillzanne bowl away...and not that that had anything to do with it but the host had over 800 in sales...and she was so excited she dediced to have a kitchen show to boost her up to a thousand dollar show....

    my biggest thing with catalog shows is that when you host coach them like they are kitchen shows (with that much excitement), you'll get a better show.. at least in my experience. i've done catalog shows where i host coached them (over the phone), but they only turned out to be just $150 or $200.. but the catalog shows that I have done and host coached REALLY strong & IN PERSON.. those ended up being $500-$600 shows for me. I pump up the host benefits program.. and I do NOT mention the $15 less they get for doing the catalog vs home show. I do give them a show planner, but I circle the catalog show host benefits for them.. they see their benefits as a catalog show host, but also can see that if they hosted a home show, they'd get a little more. but if they have told me they didn't want to do a home show, and are excited about doing a catalog show, then i get UBER excited for them! a show is a show! my 2 highest shows so far have been catalog shows.

    I've only had 3 so far and the rest have been cooking shows. Two $300 and one $400 catalog shows. I just stick a note in with their info and tell them that catalog shows are usually a little smaller than kitchen shows, so the free product might not be as high. Not sure if that just makes them more determined or what. I'm always surprised when I call and they tell me how they are doing. I've got 4 people doing a catalog show right now. I hope they are as good!

    oh, another thing. my catalog shows end up staying open longer than my home shows. it just ends up being that way (with mailing of payments, etc.) and i think that was the difference between my high and low shows as well. my low shows were on a slight time restriction (like 5 days), and my higher shows had like 8-10 days.

    Really? I've never given a time restriction. Must be why mine are higher. The one I have next month, I did offer her a little extra in free product if she turns it in before the 15th. I really want those HWC mugs!!!

    I am trying the tic tac doe sheet to see if it improves the sales and motivation. I am attaching a copy of the flyer.

  8. I like...

    the game idea with tic tac toe. I have started putting an incentive in my letter to the Catalog Hosts, if they have over a $400 in total I'll give them the NEW Outdoor Party Plate. We'll see! Thanks for all the input!

    the HCW cups

    The HWC Host only cups that we can earn are only available to COOKING SHOW held and Submitted from March 1st - 15th. So a Catalog Show would not count. just thought I would point that out! It really sucks but oh well!

    No...I checked the flyer...the large print says hold and submit 2 cooking shows, but down at the bottom it says all cooking shows, catalog shows, fundraisers, pampered bride shows held and submitted count toward this incentive.

    It is very misleading. But I guess it just means shows in general, not a specific type. I am glad. I only have 1 show booked in March, but should be able to gather enough orders to get a catalog show in by the deadline.

    I just had a successful catalog show

    I have a host who ran a 10 week catalog club show and it was a $1.390 show! Wow I am so happy and I hardly had to do a thing. I did weekly calls to keep in touch but pretty much she had everything together!!
