Pampered Chef: Bookings Offers for hosts???

    What does everyone usually offer to hosts? I think I noticed something,somewhere about offering things for outside orders if it's a certain amount. Or offering things for hosts that get 3-4 bookings before the show.
    Any ideas or suggestions???

    Thanks ahead for the replies, you guys are awesome!!!! :D

    I do a couple of things

    I have a couple of small offers that I extend to my hosts. Here they are:

    I offer to send the invitations for my host, and I pay for the stamps if they take me up on it (I have definitely seen an increase in attendance since I started this).

    Whoever has the highest catalog and kitchen show during the year gets a $20 gift certificate from me in January (this REALLY drives some of my hosts!).

    If a kitchen show host has five outside orders or a booking BEFORE the show I give him/her a mini serving spatula at the show.

    If a catalog show is over $500, I give him/her an extra $10 to spend (I just put it on the host order).

    I don't always do this one, but if I'm in need of bookings I'll give a host an extra $15 to spend if she gets three bookings. She doesn't get the extra $15 until the last host has held her show (I just add it to the 3rd host's order so that it really doesn't cost me $15).

    Lauren, do you have much success with the Tic Tac Dough? Is it worth it for you to pay for the prizes?

    Wow, that does look cool! I'm interested to hear how it goes. Do you feel you fork out too much free stuff?? It does add a fun element that is a little more exciting than just reminding hosts about these things over and over. I'd love to hear more..... :D

    I use this Tic Tac Dough, and honestly, I haven't paid out on it yet. Not because I haven't had anyone that won, but because the host hasn't reminded me about it.

    This may sound tough, but when I host coach, I have the host pull it out of her folder, and I go over each square with her, and what she will get for "winning". I also tell her, "because some of these boxes have to do with things that are done after your show, when we close your show, please be sure to remind me if you won a prize. Otherwise, I won't remember, and you may miss out!" I will go over the Tic Tac Toe board with the host at her show, but tell her to hold on to it until we close her show to see what she's won. I remind her again to tell me if she has a win so we can add it to her order.

    Even if I paid out every time, though, it would be worth it! This keeps the goals in front of the hostess, and the results would be worth the gift!
