    I am doing a booth in January and the focus of the event is recruiting. When I normally do booths, I concentrate on order's or bookings. Has anyone done a recruiting booth and do you have any pointer's??? Thanks

    The technique is the same. At the booth your plan is really to get good leads and then follow up later. It really doesn't matter what your goal is while there. I am assuming that it is a job fair or recruiting fair that everyone who attends will be looking for work or a business. In which case you keep that in mind and gather leads for follow up just like you would for bookings. If you plan to close the deal then you definately need someone to assist with that. Closing the deal takes time away from other potentials so you may miss someone important if you are closing the deal. Tag team may be the way to go. This article has a lot on fairs and expos.

    I think I would be sure to display all of the items someone gets in the kit. Make up as much of the paperwork packets as you can too- so they can see EVERYTHING they get. Have a binder showing some of your commission statements maybe....so they can see you make REAL MONEY.

    If you have a small DVD Player or feel comfortable taking your laptop, I'd play the PC DVD also. Then just answer questions- maybe have the 'Take Charge Take Action' and/or a recruiting flyer ready to hand out.

    Just some ideas off the top of my head.

    I haven't done a job fair yet, but agree with Deb. Having a 2nd consultant there will probably work better. It's going to be hard to concentrate on one person if you have multiple people walking up to the booth.

    And if you have them, instead of using a folder, use the reusable shopping bags!

    You will of course have your info on all of those things, but throw in a business card too. ;)

    I just came up with a BRILLIANT idea! (Or so I think! LOL)

    Get one of those little flat fake clocks where you change the dial to the next "show" time. Do a display board that the next presentation will start at ... and have your clock below it. Every 15 minutes, 30 minutes, etc. Start a new presentation about all the new consultant rewards! :D Give everyone standing there a Come Join Us booklet to follow along & basically do the "interview" to a group of people!!! You can play the Your Life, Your Way DVD in between presentations and then do the actual explaining all the details to several people at once. That way, you don't have to remember what you've already said to one person & repeat yourself or accidentally omit something to the next person. ;)

    Dang, now I'm all fired up for a job fair!!! LOL

    Oh, you probably want to have a LOT of the Consultant Agreements on hand just in case it's a huge success! :D
