    I am so mad at my self:(. No matter ho hard i try to get bookings it never works. i just called so meany people for the 24 bookings in 24 hours and left over 7 messages and got some on the phon e but no booings. allmost all are older people that were from homeshows and i can remember that they did not want to do any shows. i am scared that i will now be able to get that 150 every month because right now i do have 2 catties going but they are not so excited about it. i have nmothing for june except a home show at the end of june. i am so scared tha ti can not keep my sales being over 15,000. what can i do?

    only 7 messages? I find it takes at LEAST 10 messages/not homes before I reach a live person. Same idea--10 no's leads you to a YES!

    Keep working the 3 contacts a day--that means LIVE CONTACTS--not messages--and things will pick up!

    from your stats it looks like you have been doing this a year, have you call past hostess, do a customer appreciation show, talked to your director, looked into booth opportunities, the list goes on and on.

    Just a suggestion: if you are frustrated right now, QUIT calling for today, start fresh tommorow! Your frustration will be apparent, even over the phone!

    Good luck

    When you call you need to make it about "them." Try not to sound desperate.

    For example on making it about "them." Call your past hosts like Michelle said. Look up what they purchased or got for free. Let's say it's the large round baking stone w/handles. We'll say the host is Lisa. Say, "Lisa, I was just thinking about you today when I was using my Lg. round baking stone w/handles. How are you enjoying the products you got from your show? (then talk about what she likes, maybe even has questions on, etc.) I had such a good time at your show and you got so much stuff, have you ever thought about having another one? We have some great specials going on right now. Then tell her what the monthly host specials are.

    This is so much better then just calling them up and asking them to have a show.

    Good luck!
