Pampered Chef: Looking for suggestions of how to best notify people of new catalog coming out.

    Hi there~
    Is there anyone who would be able to offer some suggestions on the best way to inform past guests and hosts of a new catalog coming?
    I know our new Spring/Summer catalog is coming soon and I am needing suggestions on what people do to generate new bookings.
    Do you send out mini catalogs? Letters? Make phone calls?
    I am just not able to think of a creative way to let people know that new and exciting products will be coming.
    Any help would be GREATLY appreciated! :D

    This will be my first change over season...

    I thought I would do a couple of things:

    1) Mail out the mini catalogs to everyone who has ordered in the past (with the exception for the few that said - Please send me a new catalog when it comes out).

    2) E-mail "special edition" newsletter highlighting the new catalog items. Possible offering an "incentive" to book - i.e. I'll bring the ingrediants.

    3) Phone those who I have in the pipeline of possibly wanting to host a party in the future.

    Of course I am definatley up to additional suggestions as well.

    Thanks Liz for the suggestions!
    Here is something that I do with my old catalogs. I usually have extras and don't want to waste them. I type up a little note introducing myself and place a catalog in the newpaper bin at people's homes around my community. I have gotten a few orders this way and it helps to get rid of my old catalogs and gets them into people's homes.
    I have not done a newsletter yet but I am going to do that right now and use the suggestions that you gave me. :)
    Thanks again!

    You can also go to www.thebooster.com. They have postcards that say that a new catalog is coming out & if they want one, they can call you. I love that site --- they have just about everything you could need for bookings, recruiting, host coaching & customer service.
