Pampered Chef: What would you do with $1000?

    Recently, on a conference call a Director (sorry I can't remember her name) shared a way of motivating her Team at meetings. She would have everyone take a minute and imagine what they would do with $1000. After everyone shared what they would do she let them know that by having 1 Show each week for the next 3 mos. they could earn at least $1000! I thought that was very motivating. Well.....on the way to my Show last night I was thinking about this and it occured to me that I should be asking this very same question at my Shows! So I did! With really great results!

    I went around the room and asked each guest what they would do with $1000. Responses ranged from car repairs to paying school taxes. Then I told them that by simply committing themselves to doing 1 Show each week for the next 3 mos. they could easily earn that $1000 and more! This was a very small Show with only 5 (yuck!) people in attendance, 2 of whom requested more info and I'm contacting today! Yeah! I also mentioned that if they needed the money sooner they could do 2 Shows each week! That totally peeked the interest of one of the women! I also mentioned that if we figured 4 hours for the average Show (overestimating) 12 Shows x 4 hours = 48 hours......Just slightly over the average work week......Did anyone make $1000 last week in your full-time
    job?! NO!!

    Just wanted to share this with all of you! Any ideas to take it further? I think this is the perfect time of year to tell our guests about this at our Shows with the holidays, taxes, back to school expenses......Wait til they find out about all the other reasons to be giving us a try!

    Lisa,

    Thanks for sharing. What a great way to spark some interest in the business. Hope your two leads will soon be added to your team. Good luck.

    WoW~

    Thank you so much for sharing that! I am going to start asking the same question at my shows! I can also add that my PC commission is paying for our cruise in January and I just started in July! Its not going on a credit card-no Siree-Bob- we're writing a check!!

    You just never know when you have a small turn out like that what it could lead to!!!

    Beth, on another post, you asked me what the table was that I was referring to. I posted it here instead because it is recruiting related, not so much catalog presentation.

    revised 100 dollars comparison

    I have revised the "What could you get with 100 dollars.doc " that Rita posted to include only Starter Kit products. While Rita's doc is EXCELLENT and shows a powerful difference in guest vs host benefits I wanted to focus on comparing apples to apples when it comes to encouraging recruiting.

    Also NOTE that both docs are using the new prices for S/S 06.

    Don't forget to change the information on these docs to your contact info and your tax rates if you choose to use them. ;)

    Rita & Beth

    You both did great jobs with these charts. But I did notice that you have different figures. Would that be a typo or is one copy older than the other.

    I used $500 for the show amount (center column) and Rita's example used $600. I also used only the Starter Kit porducts and she had others. And as Rita said, we have different tax rates.

    I was wondering if anyone thought to put in the credit towards the kit on the consultant part. When they see that they could actually get it for $50 that might make someone topple over the fence. I know that is what sold me.

    Here's my version of this. I added in the $50 credit, and the last part, where if they sign today, they get it for just $35 is figuring in $7.40 that I'd throw in as a thank you for signing. So once the math is all done and they have a show to get $50 off the kit price, it ends up at $35!

    Here you go! This is for a host with a $500 show and using a $40 kit credit!
