Pampered Chef: Sales Recently moved my business

  1. I have recently moved my business to middleburg FL where I know very few people. I have tried everything I know and still am having a hard time getting shows. I was hoping a few of you had done the same thing and could help me.

    Kristine,

    Hello! I have not personally moved my business but I have a fellow consultant that moved her business from Wyoming to Kentucky. She moved for her husband's job. She didn't know anyone there, no family there or anything.

    She had a few ideas that she had received for people moving their business. 1. Set up a table at a local grocery store with products, catalogs etc. Put a sign up "ENTER TO WIN A FREE KITCHEN SHOW!" Then for all those that signed up, she called and let them know they had won a free kitchen show. She bought the ingredients for one recipe. (She priced these out to be recipes that cost $7-$10.) 2. Bake mini loaves of banana bread and put a mini catalog on them. Take them to your neighbors and announce your business in the area. 3. Put up signs in local grocery store, hardware stores etc. announcing your Pampered Chef business. 4. The most important thing she did was step "out of her comfort box." She approached strangers standing in the grocery line, started conversations with clerks at stores and told everyone about moving her business!

    She has had great sucess and is now moving her business from Kentucky to Georgia!

    I hope these help!

    I moved my business 1 month after starting up i wont lie it was difficult at first, but what i did was I asked a lady in my church if she wanted to host a party, i was going to do a mystery hostess party. I got one booking off of that then i did that party and gotr 2 bookings. then the welcoming crew came over and i called them and checked in to adversising with them to expensive but i did ask them to host a show and they finally did in sept and it was a good show. Also my real estate agent hosted a show for me and i got a booking off of her. Then i got a lucky break and did the taste of home cooking school and that has been way awsome for me. Good luck with moving your business I would also do what the other girl did in her post I am a shy person so i dont think i would be able to set a table up at the grocery store, but i would check into some booths and things like that. hope i made sense. GOOD LUCK :)

    Get the shoulder tote!

    You may also want to order the Pampered Chef shoulder tote (only $15 on supply order) if you already haven't done so. I use that as my purse and take it everywhere with me!! I've had many people notice it! It's helped me book 4 shows from people I didn't know, which helped broaden my clientel! As a matter of fact, I am closing out a show tomorrow from a host I met at Hobby Lobby - she noticed my tote and booked her show on the spot. It's almost a $600 show! Not bad! I've also collected a few orders from people I didn't know as well. I'd say it has definitely paid for itself. It will defintely let people know what you do! Good Luck!! :D
