Pampered Chef: Sales My 1st Power Cooking Demo is tonight

    I am doing my first ever power cooking demo tonight. I have about 10 people coming. We are doing the Easy Beef Stroganoff, BBQ Beef Sloppy Joes and the Zesty Beef tacos. We will be eating the tacos and the other two will be raffled off to two lucky people to take home with them.

    Does anyone have any tips on ways I can make this pretty successful? I am doing this at my house and am the hostess so that I can get triple points. I want to get as many points as I can this year.

    Thanks

    That is a great idea to raffle off the food - easy dinners for them to take home! Are you supplying something like Gladware to pack it up in? I'll have to go look at those recipes! Do they use the DCB?

    If you are married, I would put your husband as the host, so you get the commission. Or your children, pets, etc ... :) This is something my director always tells me to do ...

    I am making my hubby the host. I am using the Power cooking beef theme show that Pampered Chef has. You put the two recipes in freezer safe zip lock bags. They do not use the DCB. I will take pictures of my set up later and put them on. I now have about 10-15 people coming. Hope I get some good sales tonight.

    There's no need to put the show in someone else's name. Put it in yours. You still get a commission. You still get host benefits. Your husband is in the same household as you anyway...it doesn't make a difference.

    Good Luck! Sounds like a great idea. It is so cold here, no one wants to go out. 25 below zero wind chill tomorrow, not a good time for triple points here in the midwest. I would love to live in ca or fl to not have to deal with the weather!
    Let us know how it goes!

    Here's what the policy guide says:

    Consultant-hosted Shows

    If you or a member of your household hosts your own Show:
    • You will receive commission on guest orders only. You
    will not be paid commission on items you order at the
    host discount.
    • You are not eligible for the Booking Benefit or a past
    host discount.
    • Personal orders placed on the Show do not apply
    toward the achievement of any bonus, incentive
    or award.
    • A recruiter or upline Director cannot be the host for a
    downline Consultant.

    Raffling off the food is a great idea--have you considered "anyone with a $60 order gets in on a raffle"?
