Pampered Chef: Sales Mystery Host Show a Flop HELP

    Hi All,
    You all have such great ideas and insight that I wanted to get your opinion on this. I couldn't do a regular open house so I decided to do an E-mail or call in Mystery host. I sent out about 45 e-mails offering to give away the host benefits, 1 order you got 1 ticket, orders over 50 dollars, you got 2 tickets, any show booking you got 4 tickets at a chance to win.
    I got ONE e-mail about it and it wasn't even a real order she wanted to see a catalog. I have given them until tomorrow to order but hey with no orders I am not very hopeful. Does anyone have a suggestion? I thought about e-mailing everyone a reminder, I just don't know what to do. I have been in a real slump for the last 6-8 months and have tried several things all of which have flopped.
    Thanks so much for any help you can give-

    My mystery host show!

    :D Hi Vicki! I did a mystery host party last night for all my past hosts. I had 15+ people in the room and 3 of them brought guests who ordered. I really just wanted to have a thank-you night and give door prizes and I gave away 2 sets of the Stainless Steel Bowls. I wanted to give the people something to work towards. (I got a lot of prizes from my director who had earned the stuff and had doubles). I've attached the flyers for you to get an idea from. Right now the show is at $710 and my aunt won the free products AND the half-price options. She of course was so excited and I'm actually very happy she won b/c she was the only one who brought over $100 in orders so she got 7 more tickets than everyone else. It was a great show, most everyone brought their favorite dish to share and it was a nice way to say thanks. I also gave away the 60% off special to someone and my highest show host won that item. Her show in June was $1547. :D I know that everyone had a great time and look forward doing it next year.
    Oh, by the way, November was my 8th month of doing PC so it still can be done. I also had a show on Monday Nov. 28th so I'll be turning that show in December so right now, I already have $1300 to turn in! YEAH FREE PRODUCTS!!!!! :D

    I've never held a mystery host show myself, but I know how you feel about the lack of response. I would say go ahead and send reminder e-mails or even do a few reminder phone calls. This time of year, it is easy to let things go by the wayside so a little reminder may do the trick. At this point, you may be able to offer the benefits to whoever gets you an order by the deadline you gave everyone. Anyway, good luck. I have been in a slump myself lately, too. Let me know if this goes over well in the end and I might give it a try.

    You might try...

    giving everyone on your PP whose phone number you have a phone call as well. Anything is worth a try.
