Hi Ladies!

Does anyone have a copy of the actual articles mentioned in the new Weekly Bytes? I could only find the Parenting Magazine one at Borders. Not the Slow Cookers one. Or the New Good House Keeping...

Does anyone have ALL of the articles that praise our products'? I sure would love to have all of them.

What does everyone have in their booking binders ~ I think mine is too big.


:)

Hi Susan,
I have struggled with my binder for a few years and finally seem to have it to a manageable size. I do keep a few recent articles that I can find in it.
I also have:
current and next months specials
Recruiting specials
A coupple of paycheck statements
Bridal flyer
fundraising flyer
some stoneware handouts
(why stones won't harbor bacteria, 20 reasons to love your stone)
A beer bread variations sheet.
20 reasons to turn off your TV and host a PC show
top 10 reasons NEVER to host a PC show
My last 10 cooking shows (a sheet that shows what hosts got free and how much I earned)
"show stoppers" from KCN
a few Theme show flyers and a list of themes
A Round up Flyer. This reminds me to tell all at the end of the show about
2nd harvest and that unless they tell me not to I will be rounding all their orders up to the next dollar. Works Awesome!

I think thats about it. It all fits in a 1" 3 ring binder

I have had better luck with my binder since I now show it (briefly) at the end of my shows. I show the specials and tell them there are handouts they can take. It gets alot more looks.

HTH!

Paulette,

Great flyer!

Also, I am curious about how you handle the round-up donation. How many customer decline to round-up with this approach? In my first 2 years I did very well with rounding up, but lately no one seems interested even when it is only a few cents.

I dont bother saying anything about Round-up. But when I'm putting the show into PP, I just round out everyones, unless its a credit card. This way I'M HAPPY & I sleep well at night knowing I'm helping the hungry!!

Top 10 Reasons flyer

Thank you for posting the flyer, Paulette. That would make kind of a fun introduction. Change the "You" to "I" for each reason, cut them out, and hand them to guests as they walk in. Then when they do the introductions, have them follow their name with the statement on the slip: "Hi, I'm Diane, and I would never host a Pampered Chef show because I don't like free products", etc. It might get a few laughs, and you could explain the statement after each introduction, thus leading you to explain the whole host program. It would probably work for recruiting, too: "Hi, I'm Diane, and I would never become a Pampered Chef consultant because I don't need a free vacation". You get the idea...

Round-up Donations--At the begininng of my shows I talk about the order form and point out the Round-up line. I usually say:

"For the past 15 years The Pampered Chef has been raising money for food shelters through their Round-Up from the Heart campaign. You can contribute to the cause by rounding up your total to the next dollar amount. For example, if your order is $49.50 we ask that you round-up to $50 even and that 50 cents goes to the local area food bank. Pampered Chef takes Suzy host's zip code and finds the closest food bank to her zip code and donates all of the money collected from this show there. Usually it is just a few cents, but every penny counts. The people at the food bank can feed a family of 4 for $1. I sure wish they would show me how to do that!"

Then everyone laughs. I also add, "If you do not wish to take part in this campaign please draw a line through the heart and I will not round up your order. Otherwise, everyone will contribute."

Then I bring out the Heart Mold and let them know $1 of the purchase of it goes to the food bank as well. Everyone is loving the Patriotic Mold. I've sold a bunch of them.

Awesome Idea! I may have to try that.

AS for the round up thing I have just started doing it and not had anyone say not to do it. I think they like writing their checks for an even amt.

here you go..

I couldn't open it:mad: It said it couldn't open word for windows??? Does anyone know how to convert it to a form that a picky computer will open? That was a great idea to have each guest list the reasons! That would be a fun ice-breaker..
