    So yesterday i got my first home office leads to my website.. What a surprise.. I never thought my hard work would pay off. but it looks like its starting too, if i could only get my team motivated to do sales ever mth.. Any suggestions?
    I am also wondering if anyone has any suggestions on how to handle David's Bridal.. I have my info there and then each mth they send me out the names that have registered with them. I have been doing this since August and have recieved nothing out of it.. And its expensive.. What to do what to do.. :chef:
    Thanks lindsey

    About David's Bridal...RUN!! Get out of the contract if you can!! When we were first told about the Wedding Registry several of us signed up with DB. It wound up being a HUGE money sucker. After participating 8 months (I was committed...after that I needed to be committed) I pulled out. Too expensive and NOT worth it!

    tell me about it.. I cant get out of my contact till August of next yr.. Its a huge money sucker.. so much for them stating it was going to be a huge money maker.. The only way I can get out of it is if they find someone to replace mine.. so frustrateing

    Davids Bridal gets around 40-100 brides in there a mth. As long as they dont mind being contacted i get all the names.. but I think its a waste when i cant get anyone to call me back. Its not a bridal fair its a contract with davids bridal so its not like i can share the cost.. Its just frustrating. It seems like i am working to pay this stupid contract!

    Is there anyway that you can give the brides more information passively before you contact them - like a different type of flyer rather than the stock one that we have. Or even a flyer with the monthly special hoping that they will host a show beyond their bridal show or even be interested in doing a regular show even if they are not interested in a bridal show. They probably think they will have to pay something, or will be harrassed by you because people just don't understand.
