My highest so far was $1400.00. How did I do it. I went to Florida and had it at a friends house.She lives in Tallahassee and the economy is much better than here. She is working on a catalog show right now because there were several people that couldn't come to the show .They have been calling her asking when the next one is. I live in a small town and generally my shows total at about $600. Unless I move to a big city I do not see getting my name in the KCN for highest show.

I just had my first $1000 show last Tuesday. Total sales were $1, 011. I focused on having a good time and it paid off in spades.

My highest show was around $1400. It was a fundraiser for a local high school track team. Everyone was incredibly devoted to this team. When I got to the coach's house for the actual show, his mother said she wanted to buy 4 sets of the Stainles Steel Bowls! This was before I even started talking so I knew it was going to be a big show.

My highest show was $1178.64. My highest month was $4,000. Would love to do that again and again!

My highest show so far has been a little over $600. I think my highest month was $1500. I've only been doing this 6 months so I'm hoping both those #'s will get higher. Hey Laura, my husband is thinking about moving to Tallahassee after he gets out of the air force in a couple years. Oooo, if he does I can't wait to try out PC there! :D

my highest

I started in Feb, my mother-in-law (with a lot work from me -- but worth it) had a show in March. I mailed out over 100 invitations and we had it in the church's basement kitchen/meeting room. It totaled $2,006. We got about $1,000 that day and the rest was in outside orders. I seriously doubt that I'll ever get that again, but it was sure fun to have for my 2nd show!!!! While I earned over $450 for that show alone, I also put out a lot in making extra food, mailing flyers, etc. My highest month was $3,661.

Shows:
#2 - $1365 (fundraiser)
#3 - $914

Highest Show

SSM 2 Highest $1,004. I had a really motivated host who collected $300, before will even started.
Highest month $3,400 in my SSM 1

Being in sales years ago I have a different mentality. I look for prospects not suspects. I want to have host or want to have a show and ask me when I'm available. Big difference from forcing a host to have a party.

My highest show was about $2400, during an amazing cookware special month. My host, who was amazing, originally called to see what it would take to earn 1 half-price item, so she could get the cookware for herself. Then she decided that she wanted a set for her daughter. She had $1K in outside orders on the night of her show and the show itself was amazing! I ended up splitting the show into 2, so both mother and daughter could get the complete cookware lineup. What a blast it was!! :D

My highest show was a year ago and it was about $2800! Thanks Mom! She was my host and it was actually the third show she had hosted for me. It must have been a slow month for the people who usually make it into the KCN for the highest shows because mine ended up being the highest show in the country, so I was in the KCN. :) It was July, which I bet is a little slower for some people because of attending conference (which I did last year too). That month WAS my highest month with $4335 in sales. But....last month I was on a mission to earn those products, so my sales were $6130!!! That is a record and who knows if I'll ever break that. :)

How exciting for everyone with those high shows! My highest show was $900+....but only happened once. There were about 15 guests, most of them had not been to many PC shows, it was around Christmas...so, I think those are the important contributing factors. Now, this may sound weird, but I think that I felt this was a different and more successful show just because I was more comfortable and had more fun than I had previously!

I would really like to know what is the "magic" happening at your shows that help you generate those kinds of sales!

I find that the shows over $1000 that I've had (two last month...that was good timing!) have really hosts who are really motivated. And hosts who actually respond to your host coaching. It's the outside orders too!! That really helps. I've had big shows that have had 15 people in attendance, but if a host doesn't try to get outside orders it's going to hurt the potential for a huge show total. Obviously if you're host coaching her correctly but she's not responsive, there's really nothing you can do. I wouldn't say there's any "magic" to those shows other than being really enthusiastic and excited for the host that she can earn all that great stuff. It truly is contagious.

There is a CD out there and I forget if it's still available from Home Office, but it's called something like "How to have $1000 shows." It's a great outline on how to have great shows. It's no secret but host coaching plays a huge part. Obviously the demo part is important but I really don't think it's the most important part. For those of you just starting and not feeling totally comfortable with it-they WILL get easier. The more you do, the easier it gets. If I come up with anymore secrets I'll let you know.

highest show

My highest show is still open. My best friend hosted a show for me about a week and a half ago and we are going to close it this weekend. So far ,it is up to $561 and another lady is placing an order tomorrow when she goes in to work. She has been really motivated and wanted to get at least a $300 show to get a half off order and now look where she is at. :) She is so pumped and with the bookings being so bad this time of year I feel she is doing a great job. Now she has her sights set on $600, double her goal ;) This could not have happened at a better time, since my hostess with the bad check made me really doubt if PC was for me. (still havent gotten a good check out of this lady and it has been two weeks!)

2 $1000 shows in less than a month!

In my SSmonth 2, I had my first $1000 show with a total of $1076 in total sales! I was so excited and they had one booking from that show. I went to that booking in my SSM 3 and she ended up turning in $1547 in total sales! I'm so happy to have turned in that much in such a short amount of time especially in my SS Months! My highest month was last month with a total of $2244 turned in! I thought that was a great paycheck! :D

High Show

My highest show was my VERY FIRST ! It was $1,024.25 !! My hostess was my aunt, and she was SO excited that she had 28 guests ! It was very exciting. My kitchen show average is still above the national average, but I am gearing up to coach my way to $1,000 shows this season.
I don't think its magic, I think its consistency and dedication. I agree with everyone who said enthusiasm and getting your host and guests excited is KEY ! And how can you NOT with the amazing new season gearing up ? And to wind down SS'05 - there are awesome specials with the bowls, and that "teaser" of the retiring products. ;)
Outside orders are a huge plus too, but again, those come from Host Coaching. Can't say enough about that - it was always my weakness, so now its my #1 focus. I can taste success this season, can you ??? :p
Keep asking questions like you do on this site, and you're sure to learn not-so-secrets to boosting your own biz -- I SURE HAVE ! :D

Highest single order

Since we did what was our highest show I thought it would be fun to do our highest single order. I have had 3 big single orders. $563. $469. and $411. I still can't believe people drop that much money at one time but they do and I don't complain. On all 3 of those orders I had a total of about 1hr in work time.

My highest was $831 - so far!! Im hoping for a great show on Monday night - Im having a show with 20 people confirmed to come so far! My biggest surprise was a catalog show in June - the total was only about $300 but then for her 1/2 price item, the host wanted the complete set of cookware! Good things can come from even catalog shows - these girls all work together and each one promises to book thru December so they can all get the different host specials! :D

My highest orders are one lady bought $206 on the airplane flying home from conference! I had another $228 order and I have one lady who has been to 3 shows and everytime orders @ $250 in products. I love it when she comes to a party! She doesn't have any interest in holding a party either. I would like to see her get something for ordering that much each time. She is a VERY GOOD customer! :)

Highest Show

My highest show was $1623! I was so happy! My largest month was last month which was $4750. I almost made the 6000 but I am going to be SOO happy when I get all my free stuff! It helps out a lot when you only have to buy SOME of the new stuff :) We are in Portugal so it takes a bit longer to get here but I have been enjoying everyones excitement about our new products. This site is so great. I look at it every day :)

Highest show was just over $1200 (bridal show). Highest month was just over $2200. Highest individual order was a host who ordered over $400 in product. About $325 was commissionable! It's funny though. It seems like when I have high shows, I have low bookings and when I have low shows, I have high bookings! :confused: I guess it kind of makes sense! As long as everything evens out in the end! ;) Hope everyones August is spectacular!

My highest show was just under $1200 in my 4th month which was February (I'm in my 10th month now) and my highest month was in April at just over $5000. I was in the KCN for February with $3200 in sales but never made it for April although it was MY best month yet since other's sales were even higher than my $5000! Obviously when I made it in the KCN for the $3200 in February other's must have been having a slow month.

Best show

My best show was a fundraiser at $2247 for a 9/11 memorial in town (5 FDNY firefighters from the town here in Orange County were killed that day, one of them was the brother of a colleague of my husband who happens to be NYPD. We wanted to do something for him).

My best kitchen show was $1822. The host actually held the show right after she conducted a basketball workshop with the Girl Scouts, so she invited all the Moms back to the house for treats and a PC show, along with her other friends and family.

It's hard to say what my best individual order is because whenever someone calls with more than $150 that she wants to order, I put it in for her as a catalog show so that she can get a discount and possibly some free product from it.

My best month ever was last November 04 with $7409. Because of Hurricane Ivan's impact on this area and us being designated a FEMA disaster area, November was a double point month in our county. I needed to make up for the poor September I had (when Ivan passed through) so I went to town. Craft fairs every weekend, host coaching everyone until they were sick of me calling, and getting on the phone everyday and not quitting until I had a certain amount of individual orders. And of course I told Everyone my goal of earning Disney. In fact, I was so focused on the point value of my sales that I never bothered to consider my commission check. Boy, was I surprised when it came!:)
