I recently did a training on booking for my team. Here is a list of ideas on “Booking 101”. These are the fundamental ideas to keep you going with a solid booked calendar for your direct sales business. Check this out below:
There are 5 main ways to keep a full booking calendar:
- Booking through new customers
- Booking through past customers
- Booking past hostesses
- Booking at the party
- Customer Page/Facebook
Check out the video above as I go into detail on all 5 ways to book a party.
Handing out mini catalogs:
Everybody always asks me…WHAT DO YOU SAY….when you hand out mini catalogs??
“I just don’t know what to say”
Ready for it??? This is monumental…this is going to be a turning point in your career….pay very close attention…..you ready for it????……………..”Do you mind if I leave this with you?”
-she’ll say……. “Sure, what is it?”
-and you’ll say…. “I help people organize their lives. And this is our mini catalog. And if you fill out the form on the front and text me the picture of it, I’ll send you a free gift!”
A great way to remind yourself to do this is to put a post it note on the front of each mini catalog
All you need to make your own is…………
-a mini catalog
**that was tough, right? It’s not hard. You simply have to get over the fear of talking to strangers.
#1 Where do you put the mini catalogs?
IN YOUR PURSE!!
IN YOUR CD VISOR
IN YOUR FRONT SEAT
**every Sunday….make up 25 mini’s….and put half of them in your purse and half of them in your CAR! Your job each week is to hand out 25 mini catalogs a week to complete strangers…
Who do you leave them with??
*** EVERYONE!!!! When you go into the……
-grocery store, give it to the cashier
-bank, send it in the tube
-gas station, give it to the clerk
-library, give it to the lady checking you out
-walmart, give it to the cashier
-doctor, leave some for the staff
-dollar store, give to the cashier
-WORK…leave in the BATHROOMS, breakrooms…
-servers….attach your bill to the mini catalog
ANYONE you come into contact with. And when you get really good at this…you not only go into the dollar store you intended to, but you go into the store NEXT DOOR! Why not? You’re already THERE!
AND WHAT DO WE SAY WHEN WE HAND THEM OUT????? “Do you mind if I leave this with you???”
Now one more thing that’s fun to do……
You CAN get some kiddy looking goody bags and a sticker book, mini notepads, and a pack of 64 crayons at your dollar store. Put some stickers, two sheets of paper folded over, 2 crayons, and a mini catalog packet. Hand them to rowdy kids in stores-the moms will love you 🙂
