I had a party tonight for a friend..seemed like I spent more time talking for no reason. People were all over the place, talking, leaving the room, kids running around...any tips to make people listen and pay attention? I really think it affected my sales
Must be something in the air tonight...I don't think mine affected sales, cause they all knew our stuff..but I only got one hard booking, and I even tried a new "hook". I guess Friday nights are for chatting! It is tough when you know more than 50% of guests!
That is so weird, I did a show last night (thursday) and the same thing. First of all the show was supposed to start at 6:30 and not one person showed up until 7:15!! People were talking, not paying attention, in and out of the room and I had a little girl that had to help me with everything Uhggg!! I got "0" bookings and the sales were low ($220). She is suppose to close Sunday and says she should reach $400 with outside orders. I didn't get home until 10:30 and had to do my dishes (didn't get to be until 1:00 a.m.) b/c I had to close another show!! I got up at 5:30 this morning for my FT job and was dozing at the computer all day! It must have been something in the air!
LOL....must be the moon and the warmer weather....they didn't start until 7:45.....people showed up at 8:15, then at 8:45.....didn't stop until 9:30....didn't leave until 10:15 and home to wash dishes .....whew.....BUT on the flip side, had a partylites party at my house last night with my friends and neighbors, did UNREAL for having 8 people there, actually it was her biggest show so far....glad to help out.....LOL....now SHE has to host one I'm telling here.....LOL....
BUT my folks had paid attention, Wed. was a nightmare, they all talked and didn't pay attention.
I think sometimes we just need to roll with the punches. My show last night was in a very small apartment, only three people showed up but they had six kids going in and out the door which was right in front of me. It didn't bother me too much....I suppose because my own kids are constantly in motion and so I'm used to it.
Well this is what happened to me...people were late. I don't think I started till like 6:30 (30 mins late), then people showed up after 7:00. Everyone was talking to one another, leaving the room to attend to children. I don't think I saw the host much. Then when I told her her show was $388, she says "that's it?"
