    OK so some of you may know that up till now I have only signed kit nappers. Well after being friends for over 3 years and doing a 3rd cooking show on Tuesday night my good friend. has decided to give PC a try! She will be taking advantage of the march rebate deal.

    Now... I am looking at how best to guide her. We have not yet closed her show. She will be signing on Tuesday next week. Is there a way to hold her current show and submit it as her first? She does want to do a kick off show and had 1 firm booking from her show. She has many who are willing to do shows for her. She is nailing down dates now.

    I am more excited for her than I know how to express and wan't to make sure she gets the rebate. She after the initial shows only want's to do 1-2 a month as she has many other comitments. (totally fine by me, I think she will do gteat and am pleased she is giving it a try!)

    I await your experienced advice in this area!

    Technically, you did the show, you make the money. That was very clear in the Policies and Procedures.

    Ok that is fine... Now I am wondering the best way to do her kick off show... I never did one, and heve never dealt with this. I do know consultant hosted shows have different benefits. Would it be better to do it like a mystery host show?

    Any ideas?

    FYI... I hate feeling so needy! I am looking for ideas from those of you more experienced at this than I am.

    I would not to a mystery host for grand opening, but I did hear on a training tape the other day to plan 2 grand opening shows!! This way more people would be able to attend (if they can't make one date, they could do the other)

    The only difference on consultant hosted shows is that she does not get commission on anything she purchases with the discount. She still gets host special, free products, and half price items. Also, she does not qualify for booking benefits for any shows booked from hers.

    I have a done a handful of kickoffs. I help the consultant with the opening and closing, but SHE MUST DO THE DEMO.

    Oh, and then I help with checkout. I do the first 3-4, modeling the full service checkout, and then sit with her as she does the rest. I also usually bring some door prizes since new consultants don't get any in their kits.

    One thing that Duska Mills does, is she does the show, gets the commision, nhostess(recruit) gets the bookings, and she will give the new consultant the outside orders from her show, since she got them- She does not tell her that before the show though, only upon closing the show. I like this idea- That way she can use the outside orders as a catalog show, her first show .

    I know you probably are looking for advice from seasoned recruiters, but I'll give my 2 cents anyway. ;)

    I would have her do her kick-off show--being that she needs to be the consultant and submit it herself. Help her along the way, as needed. I wouldn't have her do a mystery host show as her kick-off, because she will probably want the opportunity to have some host benefits to increase her products that she owns. My kick-off show I used the half-price item to get my FC set, and the FPV to get other essentials for being a new consultant (TTA, large grooved cutting board, etc.) She doesn't get the booking benefit, but the other benefits are still so great. :) After that, she can always do a mystery host catalog show or something if she's having a hard time getting bookings.

    As others have said, you did the show so you are the consultant for it.

    When I have a host sign I give her all the bookings. She gets either a kit credit and/or free products from the show. I give her all the outside orders to submit as her first catalog show (unless she needs some of those sales to hit a level and WANTS to hit that level).

    As far as helping with their intro show I have never done that. I would have been very uncomfortable with my director being there for mine and if someone asks about me being there I tell them that but that I would come if they wanted me. So far they all agree that they want to do it without me there. I do consultant/host coach them a lot before that show though.

    Have her put in her mother/sister/hubby as the Co-Host for her own Grand Opening and then she can get the booking benefit through them!

    She can NOT do that! First of all consultants can not have co-hosts. Second, if the host lives with the consultant the same rule applies for them as the consultant.

    This is true, but there is nothing to say that the new consultant has to be the host for their first show. My Mom hosted one for me.

    That is correct - you do not have to host your first show. Anyone can host for you but to say someone else is hosting just to get extra benefits is not being ethical.

    I agree. I can only hope that new recruits are ethical.
     
Have something to add?
