I have a couple of great recipes that were shared! What other things are you doing for your HWC shows? I'm also interested in other recipes, too.
Nope, there's no cost, but there's no guarantee that they'll put it in either. The press release on CC is good, but it's also kind of long. When I've had papers print them, they usually condense it. You can always take what you want from the CC press release and tailor it to what you want it to say. I say it's worth a shot!heat123 said:I saw the press release thing on CC what is it exactly? Does it cost anything to put into your local paper?

I'll do some extra prizes and stuff at shows and I hand out the breast cancer information from the ACS that we can get. I'm having two contests for hosts....every host in May is entered in a drawing to win the new Quick Stir Pitcher. Then I'm also having a contest for the May host with the highest sales.....she'll win the new Executive Small Saute Pan. I'm not having as booked a May as I'm hoping, but there's still time! I'm also doing a table at a Curves and I've looked into doing something with a local cancer resource center.
Also, definitely do those press releases that you can submit to your area newspapers. I don't get a lot of response from it, but three years ago, someone saw my press release and had happened to be looking for a consultant because she wanted to do a catalog show. So, she did that and since then she's had one cooking show, two more catalog shows, a couple weeks ago she called me out of the blue with $150 in orders AND she now has a wedding invitation/favors business so she's willing to pass the word about the PC wedding registry!!! Isn't that cool? And it all started from me doing that press release. THere's a very easy form letter that you can do on consultants corner. I'd recommend it because you never know what will come out of it!
That's great!! Way to go. Having that positive reinforcement will be a great way to get you back on the phone to make other phone calls. It DOES get easier!CarlyK said:After taking 30 mins to build up some courage to call my local Curves, I did it, and boy am I glad that I did so!!! I have a phone-a-phobia, but the owner was awesome and she said that she was looking for a PC consultant and that there were a few things that she needed herself and could she order them! I told her definitely and she was so excited that I got pegged as her PC consultant now!
I was only able to get one day, which was the busiest day, the 15th from 8-6. I am so excited that I called EVERYONE and screetched on the phone! LOL.
Chef Kearns said:How long did it take for you to get brochures from the ACS? I forgot to order them a few weeks ago and have a HUGE party coming up on the 6th (30+ guests). They want it really breast cancer centered..
No problem! They came via UPS Ground and they are in Georgia and I'm in Illinois. I think the 2 weeks was just a bit of a be prepared just in case sorta thing.Chef Kearns said:Thanks, Carly. When I finally ordered I asked the lady and she said to expect it to take 2 weeks, but it may be sooner. I am hoping much sooner. It is good to know you got yours in 2 days.
