I really need some help. I have about 44 people I have not contacted over the last five years and I would like to contact them. I need help with my wording and should I contact them? I am trying to increase my bookings but it has not been very successful any suggestions?

Have you heard of the Step up your business program? I just taught the first session and if you go to the link on consultant corner, print off the 'play sheet' for session 1. There is an 'out of the blue' call script there. It might help!

Oh, sorry.. go to "participants" then under session one you'll see the out of the blue script

Thank you so much for the help. I went and pulled down that script information and I will be making calls tonight using it.

Here you go! Good luck!

Here’s a script. Don’t spend time analyzing or editing it. Just try it!

Hi, _________. This is __________ with The Pampered Chef®. I’m not sure
you remember me, but we met at ________________. Have you got a
minute for a real quick question? (If yes, proceed. No pauses until after the
next question.)
This might be completely “out of the blue” for you, but I’ve been feeling
that I’ve maybe missed the boat with you, and would feel bad if I didn’t at
least give you an opportunity to find out a little more about this.
You know I’ve had my Pampered Chef business for ___ months/years, and
it’s been great for my family and me. (No elaboration! Remember, it’s not
about you!)
This is a time of year when we’re looking for people who might be
interested in earning some extra income, or having some fun with a
business like ours. What do you think? Have you ever thought about doing
something like this?
(For positive response) I’m so glad to hear that, _____! Can we plan a time
to talk more about it and see what questions you might have? (Set up time
to talk, face-to-face if at all possible.)
(If “no,” continue with script.) That’s too bad, ________. I’m sorry, because
I’d really like to work with you -- and I’m sorry you won’t be getting in on
all there is to experience and gain with a Pampered Chef business. (Slight
pause, then continue.) Do have a friend, or family member, or someone
you work with, that I could call about this? (No pause.) Someone who’s
positive, energetic, enjoys working with people and would love to have
something of their own like this that would be fun and could provide some
extra income?
(If no) Well, thank you so much, _____, for letting me just ask you about
it. Is there any other Pampered Chef need you might have before I go?
(Respond, follow through as needed.)
Thanks again, _____. Have a great afternoon!
If you get an answering machine:
Hi, ________. This is _______ with The Pampered Chef®.
Sorry I missed you. I’ll try again later.

Don’t know who to call?
Grab a stack of names
and numbers.
DON’T pre-qualify! This is not
about your active recruiting list.
This is an “out of the blue” treasure
hunt. Think about:
 Hosts or customers you didn’t
invite to learn more about the
business and wish you had the
chance to try again.
 Personal acquaintances you’ve
wanted to reconnect with but
haven’t spoken with in a while.
 Friends or family members
you’d like to work with but
haven’t approached about the
business.
Use old drawing slips, guest
receipts, fair slips, your holiday card
list, address book, List of 100, etc.
Make the calls.
• Set a timer and record how many
people you reach in 30 minutes.

For me, I always send them something and then call a week or so later. Maybe a recipe card, SB or newsletter. Something inexpensive. I find it easier to start the conversation with "Hi, Did you get my ___?" Good luck!

How do you get rid of the phone fear. I have been trying for years, but every time I contact someone I feel like I am bothering them. But I need to fill up my calender is there another way besides contacting old contacts?
