I would like suggestions on where to find new leads for business. I have been a consultant for a year now and my list has run dry. I almost feel like I'm doing something wrong. I cannot get any of my hosts to rebook- not because I'm boring- just they have all the products they want right now or they are just too busy to invest time in another show. I have asked for referrals, the response was whoever was at my show is it. I have started calling ordering customers each corresponding month from the past year and reminding them of the 1 year guarantee being about to expire and is everything still in good working order, would they like to see the latest catalog or host a show and stock their kitchens for free like host did last year- no new shows or orders from doing customer care calls. I have contacted local businesses-either they do not allow solicitation of any kind or they already work with a consultant. I have made cold calls on numerous occasions when I have been in slumps before and this has not been particularly productive. I have visited the homes on my street and sent mailers and called on neighboring streets. There have not been many booth opportunities the past few months or the beginnig of Summer. Am I missing something?? I do live in Ohio and in my particular area there has been allot of unemployement but other consultants don't think that the economy plays that big of a part. I focus on the fun night out with friends and $2/serving meals but no takers. I have had several people host catalog shows but I haven't had much success in getting bookings from those, mostly because they don't want the host to give me their phone #'s. As of today, I am looking at 2 cooking show for May and only 1 in June. I'm just as lost and overwhelmed as when I started. Where do I go from here??
