Pampered Chef: Tasty Tidbits subscribers - do you use the "top host" portion?

    I have recently subscribed to TT and LOVE it (thanks Joy!!!)...but was wondering if everyone used the top section, "the top host" portion. If not, what do you put in it's place? The top host thing just isn't my style...mainly b/c I'm slightly uncomfortable putting the top show's numbers out there. Would/does it make customers uncomfortable to read it? Make hosting seem slightly "unattainable"?

    Help! I'm super late in sending out my newsletter this month!

    I do. I've had hosts tell me how tickled they are to see their name (they don't need to know they were the ONLY host that month :) ). If I had a crummy month and no shows, I'll just delete it.

    I used to, but now I'm too lazy to look up the info. This month I put something else in there about a special I am running.

    LOL - that sounds like me! :)

    I usually put something in that space about a special or because I'm usually booking 2 months out, and TT only has articles for the current month and the next month's specials, I will say something about the other monthly specials.

    For example - for September, I was booked by the middle of August, and October I have 7 shows already, so I really wanted to feature November too - so I added something about the November Host Special to mine.


    Oh and Deb - every time I see you post, I just think - Come on already, Baby!

    I use it. I think it is a great way to get people to say, "wow, I could get that too!"

    I do but I don't use the host's full name. I use first name and last initial.

    I use the Host's name, total of show, and how much free/discount she got (saved $200 for example). If I have several hosts that month, I say, "Thanks to May Jones who had a $250 show..." etc. so everyone who did do a Show sees their name! :) No one has objected and sometimes it helps spur on someone who is working on a show for the next month!

    Are you just forwarding email, or using iContact?

    If you're just forwarding the email, after you've hit forward, just go in and edit that section of the email.

    If you're using iContact, after pasting the HTML, save the message, exit out and go back into the message. You'll have a "Design" tab at the bottom of the window that the email appears in, and you can do editing in there.

    Could someone explain to me: What is Tasty Tidbits? What is the website? How much does it cost to subscribe?

    Thanks

    My show schedule is so sporadic I don't. I once or twice made up hosts, but that's funky so I either omit it or give a recent host.

  19. I use that section. I love it. Like someone else said it makes my hosts feel "special"

    I have before if I have a really good show ($500 or more). Then I stopped becasuse I did not feel like going back to get the numbers. So I don't use it anymore. I may start and just make some adjustments.
