I was thinking putting different flyers in each is a great idea and maybe have the guest tell whats on the back of his/hers to get some interaction going at shows.

Re: Wondering....

You know what might be a great idea? Get some page protectors and attach them to the back of your lapboard (tape them, etc.) and include the most recent recruiting promo, next month's host special, this month's guest special, benefits to hosting a show, benefits to having your own PC biz, and throughout the show ask guests to share what's on the back of their lapboard.

If you have them in page protectors you can change them out every so often as the promos and specials change.

That's a great idea Jenny! :D

Re: Wondering....

I don't use lapboards, I found that I was wasting money making copies each month of the host and guest specials because no one was looking at them or ordering them. So what I do, is I take a big post it with lines on it and put on the front of the catalog for a "wishlist" then in a binder I put all the guest and host specials as well as recruiting promos and my DCB bundles also some DCB recipes. I found that if I passed around the binder while I was doing my demo that the guests would look at it and then if I have a quiet time when I need something to fill I talk about the binder and show it to everyone it also helps me remember to talk about hosting benifts and my specials. In the long run I save money and some trees too.

I don't use my lapboards for this- I also don't make individual copies of the month's guest/host specials. I use lapboards for my guests to have something to write on! I have two clear document display holders that I display this month's guest special and next month's host special in at my shows.

Re: Wondering....

Yea my lapboards already have the protectors. I used to display the guest special in them but like you want to save money but I wanted to put something in there that didnt go out of date but was also catchy!

Re: Wondering....

Here are a few thoughts:

- Money saving tips at the grocery store
- Quick general kitchen tips (i.e. throw a lemon or orange down your garbage disposal after you clean your sink for a nice fresh smell!)
- Different benefits of hosting (you can even take these of the booking slide)
- Different benefits of being a PC consultant (again, you can take these off the recruiting slide)
- Tips for our products- things that people wouldn't normally think of. I.E. "Did you know that all of our stoneware is freezer safe? Why not use your bar pan or stoneware sheet pan to make customized ice cream flavors- cold-stone style?"

I'm sure I could come up with more, but that's just off the top of my head :)
