HERE’S AN IDEA FOR THOSE ON FACEBOOK
(OR, you can send something similar to your list of contacts)
Are you on Facebook? I challenge you to a GREEN LIGHT SPECIAL!
This idea comes from Director Tonya VanTol. She is PRIVATELY messaging contacts on FB...she deliberately chooses people who have a "green dot" next to their name in the lower right...meaning they are ON FB at that moment. She sends them a private message that says:
"Hey girl (or Hey there, or whatever greeting you want to use!) ! I am sending out some December packets with just one catalog and some orders forms! Collect $150 in orders and pick any item or set in our catalog for 60% off!! Would you like me to send you one?!" THAT's IT!
The gal who started this booked 18 catalog shows in 2 days! Nina Bowling has already sent out 15 packets, Shirley Veilleux has sent out 10! How many do you want?
The packet, with 1 catalog, 2 sheets of order forms and a letter will cost about $2.00 in postage to send! What have you got to lose???
And remember, this isn't a general "post" on your page. You're privately messaging people, and they are messaging you back! Remember that you can "cut and paste" the verbiage into your message to save time!!
STEP 2 - ONCE YOU HAVE SOMEONE INTERESTED, SEND THIS EMAIL:
I will soon be sending out your catalog and order forms, along with our December host and customer specials! When you collect $150 in orders you can select ANY item (or SET) in our entire catalog at 60% OFF! No exclusions! However, when you collect $650 in orders, you will also get a FREE Trifle Bowl, plus many other benefits (see the attached flyer). I will be calling you to share ideas to help you get the most orders possible.
IN ADDITION, I will be setting your show up on my website so your friends can place orders directly on your show. You can send the email below to your friends to give them the link to your party.
Consultants - Remember to change everything to your host’s information before sending to him/her:

YOUR INFORMATION HERE
Now that everyone is having such a great response with the GREEN DOT FB catalogs shows, let’s work on getting some live shows from them. Here’s what you might want to do and also teach your team to do.
1. Once the catalog show is booked, try to up the ante to a LIVE show so they can get the trifle bowl for FREE. Let them know a live show generally yields higher sales so it will be easy to reach that $650 level, and you still have a couple of dates open. If they choose not to do a live show, coach them heavily on at least getting to the $300 or $400 level so they can get more half-items and FREE products too.
2. If they absolutely can’t do a live show in December, then let them know that the January special is going to be AMAZING. Let them know they can even take advantage of two of the 60% items in January because you will rebook them on their December catalog party, and then when they have their LIVE show in January, they will get one of the items as a Past Host, and one as the new Host. Of course, they can book another catalog party, but I wouldn’t even mention or offer that unless it’s a last resort.
I really believe this is going to help everyone get their January booked solid with LIVE shows, and we all know that what happens in January sets the tone for the entire year.
There was a guy named Richard in Career Solutions who was telling Consultants we couldn't make collages with our OWN Photos. I e-mailed him for clarification on April 23rd & he confirmed that the information was correct. Since his theory made ZERO sense ... so I went over his head. On April 24th I contacted a supervisor in Career Solutions & asked her to review what he was telling consultants. After a much long needed debate among Home Office personnel, here's their response:
Thank you for your patience in allowing me to research and discuss the attached. I’m happy to let you know that the attached photos may be used.
Basically, you can take photos of Pampered Chef recipes that you have made, you may also make your own recipe using Pampered Chef products, as long as you clearly identify that the recipe is NOT a Pampered Chef recipe, for example, you might say something as simple as Sheila’s Recipe Collection or Recipes by Sheila.
It is also acceptable to create a collage of Pampered Chef photos as long as the actual photo is not altered in any way.
Finally, I know that you and I discussed banners for your Facebook page several weeks ago. You probably have already seen them, but if not, be sure to check out the Corporate Facebook page for several selections that may work for you.
Have a wonderful weekend!
