Pampered Chef: Bookings So I had my first show...

    ...only two people came. I was a little disappointed because my friend across the street told me like, 10 times that she was coming, but didn't.

    AND only one of the two people placed an order.

    BUT...

    She ordered $160 by HERSELF! AND gave me the host benefits (it was supposed to be a Mystery Host). So my very first Kitchen show qualified as a show, AND got me all the host benefits! (which is great because I really wanted the Chillzane Rectangle server with the forks!)

    AND to make it even better, the other lady booked a show on 19 July, and the lady who placed the order is going to go to that show and there's another $75 worth of stuff she wants to order then!

    YEA!! :D :D :D :D

    Kathlynn,

    Think of it as a good first practice show. It ended up well and that's all that counts. Keep it up and you'll do Great. Great job and good luck. Let us know what your next show does. I'm cheering for you. :) :)

    I'm absolutely thrilled! I would have been happy enough just that anyone came! I wasn't expecting enough sales to make a show. I am very happy! :D :D

    Congrats!

    Good show to practice with! Congratulations on
    it qualifying as a show and most espeically on
    the booking! One thing that helps is to have
    your host (or you) 1. Call all the people they
    intend to invite and tell them the where, when
    and what. If they say they can't make it, offer
    to get a catalog to them. 2. Send out the
    invitations - even to those that said they
    couldn't make it and 3. Make reminder calls a
    day or two before the show - even to those they
    declined. With those people you can just say
    something like - I know you said you couldn't make
    it but I thought I'd remind you just in case your
    schedule changed and you are free. Also, if you'd
    like to place an order, I can accept that until _____.

    Another Thought...

    Hey! Congrats! That's awesome!

    Another thing you might want to do is call the people who said they "WOULD" come, who didn't make it.

    You could always tell them you are sorry they couldn't make it, but you were wondering if they would still like to order... :)
