    I just sent out my email a few minutes ago. I have a kinda small customer base, so I really hope it brings in enough sales to call it a show. I have ZERO shows scheduled for December so I'm counting on this keeping me active!

    Michelle, maybe next year you want to send the email out on Sunday. That is what I did so I could catch anyone leaving town early. I am hoping this year's BF & BS sales will be good. Last year I got ZERO but I had a much smaller customer base! I am hoping to bring in a few of my infrequent buyers to hit the sale this year!

    I sent a "flyer" via email out for my first Black Friday sale. Only ONE taker so far ($84.00). Think it's a "bust", she was working on an order anyway, and when she got that, she sped it up to get the discount :-( Didn't think to take her name off the list. Out of over 500 people.. one person... sad but true. It's not over yet, but man, a lot of work for that small of an order (20% off at that, so I'll close it in December to help with the sella thon, I guess). Bummer since I was getting the order anyway!

    How did others do?????:(

    I sent out a Black Friday sale flyer on Sunday, and then a quickie one this morning ("Black Friday Sale in Full Swing"). My phone is quiet. I guess all those callers are getting "busy circuit" recordings and can't get through :eek:

    LOL - I've had over $200 in orders from my website today, and I'm not even doing a black friday sale. I did send out an email earlier in the week just reminding people about the great deals on the outlet...but that's it.

    Well, I just sent one out! LOL!! You guys inspired me. We'll see if anything comes of it. I didn't want to have to keep up with an hourly deal and my family is going out tonight so it is strictly website orders only! For today it is FREE shipping and for Monday it is 15% off. Scott's special made me choose to include a booking special for January. Even though I kinda need another 3 parties for December my family just doesn't have the available date to accommodate it. So I'm focusing on January. I want a party each day of the triple points days!!

    I had a host turn in a show today ... she ordered it ALL herself ... and is OK with it being a December show ... I have other orders which I am turning into a show too. I missed November SAT, not b/c I didn't have two shows, but because they weren't turned in by the stupid 15th ... I will NOT miss December's!

    Finally got an order about an hour ago, during the 10% off time frame. It was for less than $50, but every bit helps :)

    One of the calls was a confirmation of an email order, so there were actually only 11 orders. However, they added up to over $650, so I'm definitely pleased. The majority were during the 25% off period, but about 1/3 were less than that. A few were large enough to receive free shipping. All in all I'm very pleased.

    I had to laugh at one of the calls. It was from a friend who said this was her first ever Black Friday purchase. She hates shopping and crowds, so she becomes a hermit on Black Friday. She has no internet access, so this was the first time she was able to do a lot of her Christmas shopping in her jammies. :)

    • Two of the orders were from people I gave sale flyers to at a networking event.

    • One was from a referral from a former consultant. She was directed to my website by the former consultant and was pleased to find out about my sale.

    • One was from a former consultant I met through CS. She's a sweetie, and I was thrilled to hear from her.

    • Two were from people at church who said that they wanted to order something. One of those was a guy who said something in front of The Furry Guy who said, "She's having a Black Friday Sale. You should order then."

    • The rest were regular customers who get my newsletter.

    Not too bad.

    I sold only two bar boards yesterday. Think I will send out an email about the Outlet and see what happens there!

  23. No sales yesterday, so I just popped off an email extending my sale through Monday. I sent out my Black Friday sale email a little to early I think so I am hopeful that my lovely customers just forgot and need a little reminding. Also sent out an outlet email!

    I have only had one taker but I don't count it because I knew she was ordering anyhow. I do know of a local cheffer though who has surpassed $1000 in Black Friday sales via her website/phone calls/emails. She took the time to send out mailings to her guests (snail mail we're talking). Perhaps that's what will work - I'm just too cheap. But I guess I do have to learn that you have to spend money to make money... Not hoard money to make money :)

    This is my first Holiday Season with Pampered Chef. I had sent out an email to 100 customers. My sale was from Friday- Monday. So far not 1 order. Hopefully the next few days will bring something in. I was really hoping to get $700 in orders, so I can qualify more SAT promotions. If not I would be happy for another $200 to get up to my next commission level. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I am really trying to contact people and get out catalogs and mini catalogs.

    First black friday sale for me....and I had $787 in sales. One person had over $400, and saved over $100 (due to free shipping). That was kind of a kick in the pants, but I'll just have to wait until I get paid on the 8th to get it back :) Overall I'm very happy. I don't expect to make the $3k mark, but this is my best month ever. I'm at $2300ish for the month, and my personal goal was $2500 this month. I thought it was a big reach, but if I push this to include Cyber Monday Sales, I might make that!

    This was the first one that I did and I got $380 of sales - I thought it went pretty well. I only have 2 shows in Dec. and I wanted to put it with them to hopefully put me over the $1500.

    She wasn't freaking out - she was trying to help you. PC monitors this site, and you could get into trouble with them if they were to find a direct link to your website. Always give people the benefit of the doubt...

    Yes as Lefty and Becky said I wasn't freaking out, just trying to encourage the rules of this board and PC. You are not allowed to post your website on any website including this one. You weren't the only one so don't take it so personally.
