Here is an idea for anyone that hasn't already thought
I have started "advertising" the votive sampler at my parties now. I let
them know in June and only June they will have an opportunity to purchase the sampler.
I tell them that if they're interested, to put sampler at the top of their dps.
Then a week prior to June 1st, I will call all of them and let them know that it is
available and that I will be sending an order in 6/1 as long as I receive their check or
money order prior to 6/1. If each person orders that wrote down sampler, at this
time I should have around a $400 order for all samplers. Hope this helps you all
like it has me! Fran Nichols
doing something similar to the votive lottery with the June Sampler. I am offering
all my preferred customers and hostesses the chance to buy/sell 4 samplers, get one free!
They simply take orders for the samplers, I turn them in in groups so that they are at
least a $200 show in order to qualify for the 25% hostess credit, which then pays for the
one free to the person who took the orders. Of course you need a booking for each set of 8
that you turn in as a show to qualify for the 25% - use one from your 2+2 calls if you are
unable to get them to book, but ask everyone who participates to book! I am using the
following questions on an outside order form that I use for book shows:
1. I would like to book a show! (yes/no)
2. I would like to attend a friend's show! (yes/no)
3. Please call me when there's a sale! (yes/no)
4. I would like more information on trying out [company]
with NO INVESTMENT!
5. When is the best time to talk?
My outside order form for book shows consists of the guest order form shrunk
down 50% so it's a half page instead of a full page. (2 fit on a regular size copy page
this way). At the bottom there is enough space for these questions. I print them front
& back, cut them down, and staple 5 together (so there are 10 order forms) This slips
in the middle of the catalog in their hostess packet - and is much easier to pass around
desks at work for example. All self-contained, less chance of getting separated. Of
course, I then re-write the orders on full size guest forms to send in the order - but
that gives me a chance to double check all the figures and order numbers. Belinda
