    I am having my first show sat. A mommy and Me party. Only 2 potential moms for bookings (the rest are my friends who have booked already). I wanted to offer an incentive for the 2 moms. I liked your SB and other door prize gifts! I didn't even think about that! I thought about a FRee show on Me but the other idea is cheaper and maybe more appealing if they get to take something home with them that day! Or your $10 offering could be used after their show is held instead of up front so you're not out alot if they canceled. I have heard of price of the day where you try to get your first two weeks filled by offering a $15-20 product for what ever day they book!

    Anyways good luck!

    Just a thought

    You probably want to shy away from giving people gifts before they actually host their party, I have heard of a lot of people taking the gifts and running! I have a special incentive going for people who host a show in November, December and January, I am offering them an additional $8 off the host special of their choice (stole that idea from somewhere on this board). It doesn't cost me too much, and looks great for the hosts. In November I have three hosts choosing the small bowls and caddy set and it will only cost them $1.40!!! I don't get commision on the host special anyway, so it doesn't really hurt me in the end. I can also use it as a tax deduction at the end of the year! I have a small bulletin board that I bring with me with my upcoming specials posted and the $8 offer-- I have been getting a great response!

    Good Luck!
