In summary, the invitation is a small postcard-size card that has the title of the show and the date on it. The card has a picture of a mystery box on it with the words "What's in the Box?" Below the picture is a space for the guest to write in their order information. Below that is a space for the guest to write a message for the host. The card is sent in a plastic sleeve with a header that says "Mystery Host Show Invitation."
I give away the parring knife or citrus peeler, season's best, occassionally free shipping (for instance, if they are the first to call, they get a bigger prize). I also give discounts depending on when they place an order. And of course, everyone's a winner with a Free Kitchen Show!
I'm a new consultant in St. Petersburg, FL...I want to be able to give the guest a 10% off if they are the winner of my "game" or whatnot...I read on here that you can give them free shipping and just put consultant gift. Can you do the same on a discount special to the guest? Will the system add that to my expenses or what? I'm confused...can you tell..
If anyone has any tips on overcoming the first time jitters...I can use the advise.... I was so nervous that I forgot most of the names to the products. Guess I need some cheat cheat sheets...
Susan....congratulations on getting started! What an exciting time.
I understand you being nervous. We have all been there. I have been doing Pampered Chef for 1 1/2 years and I just forgot the name of a product at my show Saturday! I laughed it off and said, "See...anyone can do this job!" I make a comment like that whenever I make a mistake. Trust me...I make a mistake of some sort at EVERY SHOW!
If you feel like you might get nervous, use the script cards found in ..... SEE I forgot the name of the INFORMATION MANUAL that we all have!!! UGH! They really should screen for this job! At least screen for brain cells!
SLOW down when you talk. Most people have a tendency to talk faster when they are nervous. Make a fist and SQUEEZE when you feel really nervous. It will help relax you.
PRACTICE and talk to yourself or your family as you cook at home. Use the products. Have key products that will trigger you to say certain things.
Let the guests do most of the talking. You can say, "Does anyone have this ____? What do you like best about it?" Let them sell the products.
Have fun...remember this is fun. RELAX and just laugh when you make a mistake...we all do it.
A Mystery Host show is just like any other show, but is normally held by you. Like have an Open House or a Catalog show, you collect all the orders, etc. Instead of you being the host, you are "raffling off" the chance for someone else to be the host, for example, for everyone that places an order, you put their name in a bowl, then select one person to receive all the free products, the discount, the half price items earned, the monthly host special and the 10% off for a year. So even tho you had the show, someone else gets the benefits. This is a great way to fill in a dead spot in your calendar, and the person that wins, didn't have to have a show in their home.
I have a great little postcard size invitation I made up for Mystery Host Shows - but it is in Publisher. If anyone would like a copy, please e-mail me. You must have Publisher to open this file - unfortunately Publisher files cannot be read by any other computer program (at least any I have found)
I will try to re-create it in Word. If I can - I will post it to the board.
Lisa I would LOVE to have a copy of your postcard invitation. I need to learna ll of the programs we have on our coputer and start making flyers and things. I have paint shop pro 9 and can barely make anything with it also have all of the offive programs that probably have only been opened a few times, including publisher. Thanks for sharing.
