T9-15 — Promote Mother’s Day NOW!

Watch your sales soar as you help your customers shop for Mother's Day!

Watch your sales soar as you help your customers shop for Mother’s Day!

Watch your sales soar as you help your customers shop for Mother’s Day!

Yes, Mother’s Day is right around the corner and your customers are counting on YOU to remind them (and help them!) Just think how stress free they will be when you help them take care of their Mother’s Day gift needs! Below are 6 ways you can promote Mother’s day!

Promoting your products for Mother’s Day gifts is a great way to not only boost your sales, but offer great service to your customers. Mother’s Day is probably the next biggest gift giving season to Christmas. Even with this tough economy, people will still be buying gifts for mom. Why not help them get the perfect gift that will make her smile? So, let’s get started!

1: If you want to help “Others” find the right gift for their moms, you first need to know what the mom wants. Have “Moms” (actually EVERYONE) that come to a party fill out a “Wish List” (You can either use our wish list card PP40140CT or Customer Care Cards V4124). Then you can follow up with the people she’s given you permission to contact for various different holidays, including Mother’s Day! Or see our new DOUBLE SIDED Drawing Card with drawing info on the front and the Wish List on the Back! (PP10131CT)

2: FOLLOW UP once you know what she wants! Do it easily with our “Mother’s Day is Near” postcard (PP94286CT or PP94286C ). You just fill in a few things from her list and then follow up later. You may want to put the postcard in an envelope (See VENV-PP ) and put the “For Guys eyes only!” (S33419) on the outside of the envelope you are sending to the men to keep the secret. One card is blue- perhaps better for sending to guys. The flower background is perfect to send to daughters, mother’s for their daughters, etc. By sending the postcard you get them thinking so that when you follow up with the call, they are ready to buy! The postcards turn what would be a “Cold call” into a “Warm Call!”

As you make those calls to “SIGNIFICANT OTHERS” (especially the men) when he is finished shopping for his wife, suggest other gift ideas for other family members. For example, ask the husband if there are others who he needs to purchase Mothers’ Day Gifts for such as his mother, daughters, etc. Offer to gift wrap or deliver for FREE once an order reaches at a certain level.

3:  Encourage bookings so hosts can earn the Mother’s Day gifts they need!  You can mail postcards to previous hosts and guests offering them your services.

Use Get Mothers Day Gifts Free POSTCARD with JUST the Graphic (PP91289C) and a darling poem to remind her that booking a party would be a great way for HER to earn Mother’s Day Gifts, but you can print whatever want on the card, suggesting that you would like to help her get what SHE wants as well.  Invite her to give you a call.  Now, as you know, your previous hosts and guests usually need to purchase gifts for their own mothers so this is very appropriate.  Plus, once you get her on the phone, you can find out what she would like and then contact her significant other as mentioned above!  This way you’ll get lots of sales!

Use our new “Mother’s Day is Near, Gift List Free when you host with me  WITH TEXT Postcard (PP91289CT)  to send to previous host or customers to encourage them to book a party.  This card also has the poem and invites them to call you before you call them to receive an extra gift.  This of course, encourages her to call you, but also lets her know that you’ll be calling her so be sure to follow up!  Now, if she’s not interested in booking, perhaps you can still help her with her gift needs!  This helps your call to be a win-win proposition!

4:  Get started early promoting Mother’s Day gifts to your customers by putting stickers on your invitations and catalogs.   Plant the seeds of how your products will meet the needs of your customers.   We have a great selection of stickers!   Promote giving GIFT CARDS!

K-Mothers-Day-Pack

Plant the seeds of how your products will meet the needs of your customers. We have a great selection of stickers!

Use stickers like:
Enhance your romance! (SC43030)
Affordable Gifts for Mom! (S44440)
Men Love it to! (S45380)
Your Gift Solution (S44436A)
Gifts for all occasions (S44427)
Make your Mother’s Day’s Day perfect! (S94268)
Give a Gift Certificate to Someone Special (S44438)
See the “Affordable Gifts for Mom” (S44440)
Mother’s Day is near (S94270B).
Then check out the new “Mother’s day is near with the comment about  earning their GIFT List for FREE by hosting a show!  (S91641)It is so fun and springy!  Put it on the front of your all your catalogs!
And many more!

See the K-Mothers Day Pack! For 10 Sheets = 525 Stickers

HINT:  When you use stickers in your catalogs that are very holiday specific, but you may still use your catalogs AFTER that selling season is over, just cover the sticker with another one of the same size!  We have SO MANY to choose from that you’ll have a ball and your catalogs will constantly be changing!

5.       Boost your sales by contacting businesses!   

You know that most husbands would love it if someone were to come to their place of work and offer a great deal that comes all gift wrapped!   See below exactly how to make this idea put hundreds if not thousands of dollars in your pockets by not only reading but implementing this idea:   Call these “Holiday Heros” parties (S33476).  Use the stickers
“Gift for your gals” (S33420) and other Mother’s Day stickers on the front and in catalogs.

Here is an idea sent into us by Kim Livanec:

“At this time of the year, Mother’s Day, Valentines, etc. I target businesses where primarily men work.  Like Discount Tires, Repair/Garages, Hardware stores, etc. and I go in asking for the manager and tell him I want to offer the employees some Mother’s Day gift ideas if he/she will allow me to.

I present my product to him/her and ask when would be a good time that they could shop. I like to target pay-day and lunch break!  I schedule that time with the manager, leave a book and ask him/her if she would please let the guys know when I will be back so they can shop.  I offer the host program to the Manager, telling him/her they will get their Valentine or Mother’s Day gifts for free by letting me help the guys shop or just collecting the orders before I return.

When I return on the scheduled day, I help the guys pick out an item or sometimes I simply just total orders and collect money.  The person who I left in charge, gets full advantage of the host program and they usually invite me back for the next holiday, Christmas, Valentines, etc.  I find out the dates of the wives birthdays, as well as anniversaries when I get a chance to talk to them. If I get lots of orders at a particular business, I may return once a month in between holidays to bring donuts/kolaches.

It is simple, and guys love it because they hate to go shopping and I bring the store right to them, and I gift wrap their purchase as well and they never end up in the doghouse over missing a holiday gift!”

Decide to try this concept NOW! Just set a date with yourself to go make your contacts with the businesses and then go back for the “party.”    Be prepared to do it all at once, if the manager allows it!  Have a selection of catalogs in your car along with products.  Only take a few items in. I suggest you “wrap” a selection of products in 3 different price ranges. Tell them they can SAVE on SETS!   (S43262) You may want to offer something special for placing their order THAT DAY.   For example, you may offer free “gift wrapping” on anything ordered that day (or an additional gift, etc).   This may save you the time of having to come back several times.     Or have a selection of products copied onto a sheet for them to order from.   They may not want to go through your entire catalog.   Give them specific ideas, price ranges, etc.  Put “Gift under $??” stickers (S44448) by products in your catalog.

Offer to include a “Gift Card” with their purchase.  (see our BC Cards- BCD44451 or BCD44435)  You can print YOUR  info small on the back and they can write their To/from message on the front or back.  This way, the person receiving the gift knows who to contact if they want more!

Remember, as you finalize their order, to ask them WHO ELSE they need to purchase gifts for (their own mother, daughters, etc) and offer to take care of ALL their gift needs at once.

6- Make Mother’s Day week special by offering a little gift to every guest at your parties!

Our bookmarks or little candy bar wrapper Purses are great!    See HC63017 — “Love” Purse Candy Bar wrapper or HC62906 — “Opportunity” Purse Candy Bar wrapper.  Many designs of our Bookmarks are perfect for Mother’s Day.  I’ve included some in this idea, but others are shown under BOOKMARKS.  (Home>Shop ALL Products>Other Products>BM-Bookmarks)  They can be used other times too to show appreciation, so stock up now!   Include your contact information easily on the back of each bookmark by printing your information on the “Heart says yes” PRINTABLE STICKERS! (S10517SS-PS)!   It is easy and you are planting seeds for booking at the same time!

Decide NOW to TAKE ACTION and make the most of every opportunity!   Order NOW, put your plan into action and watch your sales soar!   Prepare to make Mother’s Day special for your hosts and customers.   When you make the little extra effort to build relationships, you will see the loyalty from your customers increase and your sales soar!

Key 2B- Prepare for Bookings by Preparing Host Packets

Extended Training: Key2B: Prepare Host Packets!
Our Basic training in the “$1000 Party System PACK” SYSTEM gives you the basic information on Key2B- Preparing your host packets.  This repeats some of that training, but goes into greater detail and includes additional products.

Key2B-Prepare Host Packets

Create eye-catching, informative host packets to engage your hosts

We recommend you have “Host Packets” prepared and ready to give to your new hosts.

WHY?  By being prepared physically we become prepared mentally (and vice versa)  Which comes first the chicken or the egg?  By having the host folders prepared your subconscious mind knows you are serious and ready to go.

By giving each person who books a party a “Host Packet”  it helps to get them excited and informs them of what  they should do to make their party a success.  The packets will also help them keep all of their party information
organized and remind them of the benefits your company offers.

When you have your host packets prepared in advance and sitting at your demo (and check out) tables ready to give away, you are reminded to ask customers to book, and customers will see them and ask you what they are.  In your demo when you are saying some of your booking “one-liners” you can hold up a packet and say “Being a host really is easy.  When you book tonight I’ll give you one of these terrific folders which will tell you everything you need to know to earn the gifts you desire.  It even explains all the extra free goodies you can earn.”
As soon as a customer agrees to have a party, and together you set a date,  present her with a “Host Packet”.

TIP: Keep a few host packets in your car wherever you go!  You just never know who you will meet and when you are prepared you are much more excited to share. 

We suggest you put all your host information into The Booster’s bright, eye-catching Hostess Folders (V2670).  On the front of these 2-pocket folders is a basic checklist of the steps a host needs to take to “make [her] event a success.”  It also has motivational and recruiting slogans on the back to start planting seeds about joining your team!  You know, your best hosts often become your new team members.  Speed up the process with these folders!

FIRST, GET ORGANIZED FOR SUCCESS!

Below, we’re going to give you a few suggestions of what to include in your host packets to get your hosts excited and encourage them to work hard so they can earn more gifts.  But first, let’s get you organized to not only make up the host packets, but to continue to make up the packets.
Create a file that has each of the things you put in your packets.  If they are things you print out, print out 25 or more and put each page in a different file folder.  Then gather up the other things you want to use and put them in file folders as well.  Put the stickers you may add to your host folders and/ envelopes in a folder as well.
When the time comes to put together the packets, pull out what is in each file an collate them all together.  Why not do all 25?  You may want to make some changes as time moves on and it’s a lot easier to put together a packet than to go through packets already put together and take something out or add something to it. So go ahead and put together 10.  This gives you a goal to shot for giving out the 10 packets to 10 new hosts in the next week!

TIP: Keep some sort of file organizer handy.  When it is time to collate what goes in your packs, pull the items from your files and put then in the organizer, put them together.  Or, you can just lay each item out on a table, pick up one of each item and criss-cross them.  Then put the stacks into your folders.

WHAT SHOULD BE INCLUDED IN EACH PACK?

1. Items your COMPANY suggests:
Usually your company provides a worksheet of what the hosts can earn, what is required for her party to count for gifts, specifics to your product line.  If not, you’ll want to ask your upline or create them yourself.

2.  Include magnets with your contact info and the date and time of the party.

FRANK” sticker S20345BC

Fill in your contact info on the “It’s your Party with FRANK” sticker S20345BC-A

Fill in your contact info on the “It’s your Party wtih FRANK” sticker S20345BC-A, (Also available with the word “Show” S20345BC-B) then Mount  the Stickers on Magnets (MBC10). The MBC Magnets are Sticky and so is the Sticker.  We also have M10 White Magnets.
When you are going through the host packet with your new host, fill out her party date and suggest she put the magnet on her fridge when she gets home.   Suggest that when she sees the magnet, she ask herself the question, “What have done today to make sure I have a $1000 party?”  Suggest that when she is talking to a friend on the phone and sees the magnet that she reminds the friend to come and tell her that she is excited for the event.  Suggest she use the magnet as a reminder put a post on Facebook that she is excited for her party, or send a text to a friend.  Each little thing she does will have an impact on the party’s success. Tell her that if the magnet is still on her fridge when you come to do her party on the original date that she’ll receive an additional gift.
You can also, include the “Steps to Success” BOOKMARK (BM26700).  Put a sticker on the back with your contact information or write on them with a Sharpie type marker.  Suggest she put the bookmark in her day-planner, on her fridge or even in her car.

3.  Include a blank “Guest List” for your host to fill out.

2-Key2B-Sheets-PDF

2-Key2B-Sheets-PDF- Prepare for Bookings Originals to Copy PDF

Type up a guest list form with a place for the hosts name, phone number, party date, and party time at the top.  Then, have columns labeled Guest Name, Phone Number, and Address. (OR, order the 2-Key2B-Sheets-PDF-Prepare for Bookings for a PDF download of TWO guest lists you can copy (up to 42 guest names.)  This ITEM also includes other sheets for you to put in your host packets including a WISH LIST.  We will go into more details about them during this training.
Use the FRANK stickers on your host folders as a cute reminder.
(See S20345- there are several sizes available.)
Remind your hosts to invite FRANK!
Friends,
Relatives,
Acquaintances,
Neighbors,
Kids’ friends parents.
The bigger FRANK stickers are great because it reminds her to invite people that live in other neighborhoods.
Explain that she’ll want to invite plenty of people because it is typical to only have a percentage of those invited actually attend.  Use the “Over invite” sticker!” (S20905)

Included  in the 2-Key2B-Sheets-PDF-Prepare for Bookings 6 sheets you can order and download is the “40 Guests in 4 Minutes” Worksheet.  Include this in the pack to help your host develop a guest list that includes friends from lots of different areas of her life.  This can even be used as a game at your parties.  Have guests fill it out and give a prize for the person who got to 40 the fastest, or has the most names.   Then during your party, as you mention the benefits of hosting a party, refer to that 40 guest list and say, “And you have your guest list all ready!”

It is SO IMPORTANT to GET the GUEST LIST!  We go into WHY and what to do with the guest list in your Key2A Host Training (and it is explained in the $1000 Party System) but for now take my word for it and GET the GUEST LIST!  In a nutshell, it enables you to send the invitations out in plenty of time.  Also, it gives you the names, phone numbers and addresses of all of those people.  Then, if someone does not attend the party, you can still contact her.
So, to get the guest list, put the “Please return your guest list within ___ days to receive a free gift” sticker (S20302) on the guest list.  Be sure to include a self-addressed stamped envelope in the pack.  Put the sticker on the envelope as well.  Getting the guest list back is so important to building your business.

(See HOW TO USE YOUR GUEST LIST under Key 2 TRAINING on our website.)

4.  Include catalogs and order forms
Whether your host has booked a catalog party or a traditional party, include catalogs and plenty of order forms so she can collect outside orders before and after the party date.  Talk to her about the importance of taking catalogs to friends who can’t attend.  Put the “Outside orders really add up” Large Sticker (S20397) on an instruction page in her host packet.  You could even put this on a magnet (cut in half) and ask her to put it on her fridge as a reminder.

IDEA:  (Booster customers have told me that this idea has made them THOUSANDS of extra dollars!)  Put the “Bring ___ in outside orders” (S43049) sticker on 5 catalogs in each hosts packet.  (Fill in the $ amount first.)  While showing your hosts what’s in the packet, you might say “Give these 5 catalogs to WORKING FRIENDS.  Ask them if they’ll please pass the catalogs around work.  Then, they can just bring the orders they get with them when they come to your party and I’ll give them a gift.”  When the friends DO bring “outside orders”, MAKE A BIG DEAL, thank them, give them a gift, and invite them to become a host so they can earn even more gifts.  Using this idea not only helps you increase your sales, it generates bookings too!

5.  Help your hosts set goals!
Create a “Wish List” your host can fill out of the things she wants to earn.  (Use the “Wish List PDF you can copy from the 2-Key2B-Sheets-PDF-Prepare for Bookings)  On your host “Wish List” sheet include the sticker “Book before the show… and watch your gifts grow” (S20017) and “Outside orders really add up” Large Sticker (shown above) (S20397) .  Remind her that if she gets bookings and orders before her show, both her and her friend can earn extra gifts.  When her friends tell her that they won’t be able to make it to the party, suggest for her to show them a catalog, share the benefits of having a party of their own and ask them to be a host.  You can even use , use the “10…5…2 or 3” large sticker (S24210) on a “Wish List” where your hosts can write the products she would like to earn for having the party.

Let your hosts know what you expect by giving her some goals to shoot for.  You can print your own information on our PRINTABLE “10-5-2 or 3” POSTCARDS (PP24211C or PP24210C) or use the already typed ones we offer. (Same item numbers with a T at the end for TEXT!)
These will inform your host that when she has 10 guests attend the party, gets 5 outside orders, and 2 or 3 bookings is means success!
Use the “Ensure Success” sticker (S20948) on your literature to encourage the 15-20 guests!

6.  Offer additional incentives!  

Host Bingo Cards to copy

BINGO CARDS –Included in the 2-Key2B-Sheets-PDF-Prepare for Bookings 6 sheets you can order and download are TWO “HOST Bingo for Success” sheets.

BINGO CARDS –Included  in the 2-Key2B-Sheets-PDF-Prepare for Bookings 6 sheets you can order and download are TWO “HOST Bingo for Success” sheets.   Some have called this the “silver bullet” to a $1000 party because as the host does all the things on the bingo game, she is insuring a successful party.  There are TWO versions.  You can use the one where WE have filled in the squares and all you have to do is fill in the gifts they will earn and your contact info.  Or, you can use the BLANK BOXES original to put what YOU want in each box and add the gifts and your contact info.  Then, just make copies and cut in half.  You may want to copy these on bright paper so it stands out.

Include a Preferred Hostess Card or a Preferred Customer Card
Encourage hosts to be part of your Preferred Hostess Club so they’ll earn extra gifts by working on their party.  Put the card in one of the slots inside the front or back pockets of the Host folder and explain it to them when they book.  Include a sheet explaining your program.
The joy of the Preferred Hostess and Preferred Customer Programs is that you can make them to be anything you want!  Each card has 20 numbered squares or circles.  These cards come either pre-printed with fill-in-the-blanks on the back or BLANK on the back so you can PRINT whatever you want!  (FREE TEMPLATE on our website.)  Write up your own list of things they can do to earn a box and include a copy of it in the folder. These cards can be used IN ADDITION to the Bingo Game as it may take 2 parties to totally fill the card.  But once their card is filled they can become a member of your PREFERRED HOSTESS Club.   See the FREE PDF of complete details of how to start  and promote a Preferred Hostess Program in the product description of the Preferred Hostess Cards (BCD20390T.)
See all the details of using these cards on the website.  See Shop ALL Products>Other Products>BCD-Business CARD Size Cards  You can follow the links to our BLOG where you’ll find all the details.
You can use the sticker “My hostesses never pay full price” (S20415) or Button (B20415) to generate interest in your club!  Watch your relationship with your hosts grow as you put into practice a preferred Hostess program.

7.  Include a summary of the host benefits
As mentioned above, type up your own list of benefits and host specials, or copy any information provided by your company. Be sure to put stickers by host specials in ALL your catalogs to increase bookings by drawing attention to what they can earn for free.      Also, use the “My Hostesses Never Pay Full Price.” stickers (S20415) and button (B10382).  They’ll draw attention to benefits of being a host.  If your company doesn’t offer a discount to hosts, you can show them that by being a member of your “Preferred Hostess Program” they are not paying full price because they are earning rewards.  And, you can always give your own discounts even if your company does not.

8.  Include company/recruiting information.
Put recruiting stickers on the pages in your catalog which explain the benefits of joining your company.  This makes the information more personal, as if it’s coming YOU personally!  While reviewing the host folder turn to the back side of the folder and point out the slogans.  Tell her she really can “make serious money while having fun.”   Put an “invitation” to become a consultant in her pack. If your company provides recruiting literature, include it in your packet.  Use the “Turn this into your Starter show!” on your literature.  Explain how if she lets you know BEFORE the party that she would like to have this party be her starter show that YOU will do the show for her and a portion of the profits will go to the purchase of her kit.  Tell her you will put the “Please come support my NEW Business” sticker on the invitations!
You can of course include other “Key 6- Recruit/Sponsor Stickers on your literature.  Be enthused and let her know that you would love to help her get started as a member of your team!

Put the “3 prices” pen pal sticker (S10220PP) or other pen pal stickers on the pen you include in her host packet.  She’ll be reminded every time she looks at it.

9.  Include any other instructions
Parties are the lifeblood of your business.  They are how you meet your customers and sell your products.  In order to have parties or shows, you must have hosts.  Giving the host a packet of information is very important.  Many times when customers agree to have parties, they don’t have any idea what they need to do, or how they can help make their parties more successful and earn more for themselves.    They may not be aware that this is how you make your living!  Put this “Committed to party or show”  sticker  (S20427 or S20428) on the packet, a thank you card, or information to reinforce how much you value their commitment to you.

Prepared Host Folders make it easy to let your hosts know what you’d like her to do before the party, the night of the party, and after the party.  Let her know what YOU will do, and how you will reward her for her work.  Encourage her throughout the process, so she works toward making the event a success and a lot of fun!

I challenge you to DO IT to have $1000 Parties!

Of course you don’t HAVE to use The Booster products we’ve suggested in this training.  But, our customers have found that these are the little things that make a big difference.  I remember years ago one gal telling me that giving the MAGNET to each host made all the difference in the world to her parties holding and people not postponing.  When you have a host packed prepared with this information, it makes it easy for the hosts to quickly review what needs to be done.
The stickers make it easy for her to find the info and remind her each time she opens the folder.

9-18 Halloween Book To Look! Visual Aids to get attention!

9-18 Halloween Book To Look!
Visual Aids to get attention!

Book to Look Halloween Visual Aids to fill your datebook

This is an Tried an TRUE idea THAT WORKS that we’ve enhanced for Halloween!  We have the T1-04 Book to Look idea and products that can be used all year! See T1-04 Book to Look

You’ve all heard of “Book to Look”  You understand that some people just can’t stand it!  They want to know what is inside!  They want to be enticed to book a party!  Their curiosity and their belief that they have a chance to earn a great prize is just the little bit of incentive they need to make the decision to book!

The OLD Idea was to prepare envelopes with certificates for prizes inside.  Then use the “Book then Look” Stickers on the envelopes.  Once they book, they get to look.   But we’ve now taken it many steps further!

With this NEW idea you not only have envelopes with the cute stickers on them, but we’ve created BAG Toppers with the “Book to Look Inside” slogan and several other items.  You put a gift inside the BAG and of course when they book, they get to look!  The BIG BAG is bound to get their attention but we also have some darling little paper “Ghosts” with the similar graphic AND some cute TAGS where inside it you’ll write what gift they receive!  We’ve even got “Candy Bar Wrappers” with the “Book to Look” graphic.  You just put your note on the BACK of the wrapper of what they will receive and wrap it around a normal Hershey Bar!

The idea is to prepare a whole bunch of the items at once, include some items of BIG VALUE– like an expensive product you got for a really good deal, plus a bunch of others.  Then say, “I have a whole bunch of “Book to Look” gifts available.  When you book a party or show on the available dates on my “Book to Look” Board you’ll get to pick one of them.  Now, the gifts are valued at $??? to $??? or __% to __% off on your order!  It is up to chance and of course it is up to YOU!”
(Now, if you don’t want to use the “Board” for available dates, you don’t have too, but this is a great way to keep your calendar full!!)
WHY should you prepare a whole bunch at the same time?  

  • 1 — Because you can continue to use the from ___ to ___ value until all the gifts are gone, even if the higher value gift was picked at a previous party because your statement of the values when you prepared it are true.  You don’t have to continue to replace the higher value gift if it was already chosen.
  • 2 — The more prizes you have, the greater the curiosity!

More suggestions:

  1. Show ALL the prizes strategically around the room, or you may even want to pass some around, to create curiosity.
  2. Be sure to mention the advantages to booking throughout your demonstration. (Just short little “one liners” like, “You could get this FREE when you book tonight with me (as well as one of the great gift bags or other gifts)!
  3. Put the “Ask me about Book to Look” stickers in your catalogs and ON you order forms!  Why? because in your catalogs, your guests will be reminded again and again.   But why on the order form?  When you are checking her out, you’ll see the sticker and it will remind you to ASK her if she is going to choose a Book to Look gift?

Be sure to ALWAYS say that they actually receive the prize AT their party that is held on the ORIGINAL DATE BOOKED or specified or your “Book to Look” Board!  If they want to book on a different date- that is great- but you don’t need to give the prize if you’ve already specified that it is for booking on a specific date.

Set yourself apart by doing the little things.
How to build relationships that keep people coming back to you.

Set yourself apart by doing the little things.Learn HOW to build relationships that keep people coming back to you.

Have you ever wondered what creates a relationship that keeps a customer going back to the same store?

When you think, “I need to buy toothpaste.” What store do you think of to purchase that item?

When you think, “I need shoes, or pants, or a new dress.” What store are you going to go shopping at?

When you need makeup, skin care, candles, jewelry, children’s books, tea, vitamins, kitchen gadgets, tools for women, or a new bra for that matter, do you think, “I am going to call ____.” or, “I am going to go to _____ store.”  If you sell any of these items, wouldn’t you like people to come to you first?

 Essentially, this is what advertising is all about. When you advertise, you are creating awareness in people’s minds of the products or services you offer.  In the advertising industry, this is called “being on their ladder!”  Your goal should be that when they have a need for your product or service, they think of you first.  You would be on the top rung of their ladder, or at least the top three.

How do stores get on your ladder?

     If you are a small “niche” store, you advertise the specialty products you carry.  You become an expert in your niche and you follow the suggestions below. 

     The big box stores do it with branding and advertising.  When they carry a large variety of products like Walmart® or Target®, they advertise as the place to shop for everything for the “best price”, “best selection,” “best service,” etc.

How do those in the party plan or direct sales professions get on people’s “ladders?”

My grandfather was in sales during the depression years and he had one of the largest sales organizations in the country for the product he sold.  He brought hundreds of people, who were willing to work, into his organization. As a result he was extremely successful. 

As a child growing up, I asked him once how he was so successful. He replied that he based his business on three specific principles.

“All I really needed to learn about sales I learned from grandpa.”

As I have developed The Booster over the last 30+ years, I have incorporated these concepts not only into my business plan, but by providing products to help you easily incorporate them into your business plan. Here is what grandpa taught me:

1.   Sales is KING! In this he meant that he was proud of what he did because each sale he made contributed to the world. I remember him saying one day, “Do you realize that EVERYTHING begins with a sale?”  Consider this, once someone makes a sale, the order is placed, the company manufactures a product, that company reorders parts or materials from other companies which in turn order materials from yet other companies, etc. People are employed manufacturing all those products and they are shipped from warehouse to warehouse. You could say this involves ‘trains, planes, and automobiles..or trucks’ and all the people involved in the processes. Of course the sales person and their company employees all take part in processing the order and getting it delivered to you. Then think of the people who work at the lunch places where these office workers buy their lunch, and the UPS guy in his brown shorts or the mail man! Grandpa said, “When you think of it, thousands of people could be involved in just one item sold!” 

Be proud of your profession and the products or services you offer! Look at a sale as your contribution to the economy. Think of all the people you are putting to work as you make each sale. Let this help you have a positive attitude and put a smile on your face!

2.   Sell the Sizzle! Grandpa said you need to reach people emotionally and create desire. Have you ever pulled into a mall parking lot, got out of your car, and smelled the aromas from the nearby steak house?  Does your stomach rumble and your mouth water as you think, “Umm, a steak sounds good”? Your intent when offering your products should be to create that desire for your product. 

How do you do that? Grandpa said you focus on what your products will DO for them, not the details of the products themselves. 

For example, when selling “The Booster” products I could explain all the “stats” on our products; the sizes and shapes of stickers, what adhesive is used, the weight of the paper, the high gloss finish, etc.. But, would that get you to place an order? No, you would be bored.

I could explain that the stickers are hand-designed with eye-catching slogans and colors that pop! Would that encourage you to place an order?  It might at lease pique your interest, but it may not actually get you to place the order.

But, when I share with you testimonials of how our stickers and postcards have helped people to double their sales and business because our eye-catching graphics reach out and draw people to your products, you begin to really take interest. As I explain how the stickers get your customers to ask you questions about how to earn some of your products free, about your opportunity, or how your products will benefit their lives, you become engaged in how “The Booster” products benefit you. I could further sell the sizzle to you by training you exactly where to put the stickers and how to use the postcards to be most effective in doubling your sales. By sharing how my products will benefit you, I sell the sizzle and you place an order! 

This is what you need to do with your products. You need to see how they relate to your customers emotionally. The way to do that is to develop a repertoire of benefits that you can share. As you share the benefits of your products, you create that “Umm, sounds good, I want that!” reaction in people and they’ll decide to buy. The benefits can be: to solve a problem they may have, to make them look or feel better, to make their home more pleasant, or to make life easier, etc.. Then, your goal is to create the “why” they want to buy from YOU. Why should they list with you. Why should they purchase insurance from you. Why should they hire you?  Set yourself apart by selling the sizzle.

3.   “People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care — about them!”  Grandpa always told me that “people” are what it is all about. If your goal is to be of service to people, your business will thrive. Yes, you are hoping to create a sale as you meet people, but if you are more concerned about meeting their needs rather than your own, they will remember and come back to you again and again. And they will send their friends to you too.

“If you take care of the people, the money will take care of itself.”

Carl Doerfler, my German grandfather

 Your “mission” needs to be to give service. When you look at people as dollar signs, they will feel that energy. They interpret your vibes and react with the feeling, “He or she wants to make a sale.” But when you genuinely look at your business as a way of giving service and benefiting others they will feel that energy and be drawn to you. The trick is to build a relationship so they are drawn to you when they need your type of products.  Remember the “ladder”?  Your goal is to build a relationship so that YOU are on the top of the ladder for your type of product or service.

Some people think they are in the business of selling a product or service. Well, that is true, but in direct sales, party plan, the service industry, or any business for that matter, you are more in the business of selling yourself.  Your goal is to build such a relationship that when they go to one of the “box stores” they would never consider buying the products that you offer there. They would always come to you instead.

Your customers will respond and relate to you when you are confident in the profession you have chosen, have a high energy positive attitude, believe that you are offering a product or service that benefits your customers, smile, and be of service. These principles will set you apart.

What else can you do to develop “relationships” that really set you apart?

 Let’s start with some simple, yet oh so effective things you can do:

     Say “Thank you” with more than just words. Put a “Thank you for your order” sticker on each customer’s invoice.  Use it on the top copy of the invoice so they see it BEFORE they place their order. You are thanking them in advance and it gives them warm fuzzies.

     Put a “Thank you” sticker on their copy of the order. Have the stickers on your check-out table and actually put the sticker on it right in front of them and say, “I want you to know I really appreciate your business, thank you, and I look forward to helping you again.”

     If you are involved in the actual packing or their order, put a “Thank you” sticker on the copy of the invoice they get with their order.

     Send a “Thank you” type postcard to people you meet.  Let them know you appreciate them and look forward to helping them again.  Send it separately from the order. This is so effective in building relationships.  Do the “box stores” send them a thank you after shopping with them?  This goes a long way in building loyalty in your relationship and you will be at the top of their ladder.

     If you’ve had a meeting or interview with someone, send a “Thank You” type card or postcard. Thank them for their time and show appreciation for their input into your discussion. This shows you were paying attention to them and want to work with them again.

   When people order online you do not have a chance to do most of the above, but you can send the postcard “Thank you for your online order!”  Believe me, people will not be expecting it and it will cement your relationship and keep them coming back to you!

     When you meet someone new, try to get their address, tell them you want to send them a gift. Then be sure to follow-up and send them a card telling them it was a pleasure to meet them and include a bookmark, magnet or other easily mailable gift. They will remember your meeting.

You need to let the people you meet know you are interested in building a relationship with them. The Booster offers a “Customer Care Card.” In our training for this card we suggest you use the wording, “I am so excited to meet you tonight and to share our wonderful products with you. Included in your guest folder is a Customer Care Card. I would appreciate you filling out this card so I can get to know you a little bit better and be of service to you tonight and in the future.”

 This is a way for you to start the relationship. If you are not going to follow-up and work to build this relationship, then do not even start! But, I have been to hundreds of parties over the years and I have only had three consultants contact me after the party to see if there was anything else I needed!

Don’t you think I needed more makeup or skin care after that first meeting?  What if I liked the prepared food products or spices I purchased, do you think I would want to order them again? Maybe I bought a children’s book for my first grandchild, is it logical that I may want to purchase more books for that child or future grandchildren? Or maybe I went to a candle or home decor party and did not purchase anything at the time. Does that mean I do not want to ever purchase a candle or home decor item?

 Begin each relationship by telling them you want to be their “Romance Specialist” or “Candle Lady” or “Jewelry Lady” and getting their information, and of course giving them your contact info, so you can be of service to them. By doing this, you are setting yourself apart. They may not come to you expecting to build a relationship, but you have the opportunity to go beyond their expectations, to make a difference and enhance both of your lives.

 Define what makes YOU you, then set up system to implement those features.

If building your business is your goal, then building relationships and making your connections count needs to be on the top of your list. The way to do that is to have systems in place. A good way to decide what you are going to do is to first analyze, “What makes YOU you?”  What is it that YOU offer your customers that sets you apart from everyone else?

·       Have you become an ‘expert’ in your field? Set up an email list where you send regular newsletters and ideas.

·       When people shop from you can they earn credits toward future gifts? (Set up a “Preferred Customer Program.”  Offer reward cards and mark-off circles or squares with each purchase.  Include on the card the gift they earn when the card is full.)

·       Do you have a “Keeping in Touch” program in place? Put your hostess or customer information into a database or on a spreadsheet. At the beginning of each month, send out 20 postcards offering a booking special or sales special. A few days later, call those 20 people.  When they get the postcard, they will consider the idea, but when you call them, many will say yes.

·       You can also send cards on their birthday, anniversary, etc.  Offer them a discount for ordering in the month if their birthday as your gift to them.  Then follow up with a call.

·       If someone hosts a party with you do they receive added values after the party? We call it a “Preferred Host Program.” Set up a spreadsheet or file system to keep track of your hosts. Offer them specials for repeat bookings or repeat orders. You can even use this program to encourage them to do more to prepare for the party.

·       For more information on these systems visit our website at www.TheBooster.com

·       Do you have a website or blog they can go to for ideas and to place orders? Set one up and keep it updated.

·       If someone joins your team, what kind of training and support do you provide? Create “You Tube” trainings they can access.  Do monthly conference calls and/or meetings.

·       If someone needs gifts immediately do you have “cash and carry” products they can get immediately? Take advantage of company specials to build up your supply.

·       Do you have a referral program where they get rewards for sharing about you with others? Put something in you guest folders telling them what they can earn when they refer 5 ordering customers to you.

·       Do you offer great overall service with integrity and honesty?

·       Are authentic in your dealings with them? Do you really mean what you say and your word is your bond?

·       Are you more interested in them than yourself?

·       What do you offer that others in your profession do not?

·       What training or expertise do you have to offer an employer or customer?

·       Why do they want to have a relationship with you?

 Once you formulate what makes you YOU, put systems in place to make it easy to set yourself apart. As you understand what drives customers decisions of who to do business with, you can more effectively develop the systems and “little things” you will do to set yourself apart.

 Understand that people have hundreds if not thousands of choices. When you make a great first impression, show that you care, and offer great products or services, you will be at the top of their ladder. When they need the product or service you offer, they will come to you!

T6-05 – Work Harder by being Smarter!

T6-05 – Work Harder by being Smarter!

Be persistent not pushy!

Here are some EASY ways to work harder by being smarter: Learn in this training how to be persistent not pushy!

People are telling us it is more important than ever to work smarter to find success.  And, with the situation with the economy, we actually have to work even HARDER to set ourselves apart and create relationships so customers will buy from YOU and not the local stores!  But, it can be done and you CAN be successful.

You’ve heard it a thousand times that this business is a numbers game.  You just have to share
your opportunity with a LOT of people and SOME of them will be interested and join you team!

Well, that is true!  But many are uncomfortable with sharing about what they do.  They don’t want to be “pushy!”  However, they ARE excited and DO love what they do!  So where is the disconnect?  How can we make sharing easier?  Why are we so afraid?  What does it really mean to be “pushy?”

The fear of being “pushy” issue can be the problem!  Let’s think about that for a minute.

Are you MAD at the person who introduced you to the business?  Do you wish they had never talked to you about it?

Most that I’ve talked to are more than GLAD someone shared with them.  In fact most are ecstatic!  Then WHY do many feel it would be “pushy” to share about their business?  I think it is more of a fear than a reality.   It also has to do with your approach.   In fact, I think many make the mistake of hurting feelings by NOT asking people to join them!  Now, let me ask, “If you love what you do, don’t you consider it a gift in your life?”

So, get rid of the “pushy” mind set, because it’s obviously wrong!  You would ONLY be considered pushy if you don’t take NO for an answer! (Once you’ve asked the right questions of course – remember, sometimes they’re saying NO to a particular question, or situation, not to what you have to offer.)

Now, if they’re really not interested, then maintain the relationship with them as a host or customer.  Continue to serve them and set the example of how you do business.  Please, stay if touch with them so when and IF they ARE ready, they’ll come to you.

I can’t tell you how many TOP people I’ve met over the years that DID NOT JOIN with the first person that introduced them to their company because they didn’t keep in touch with them.  Make it your goal to maintain relationships.

Now, back to the GIFT of your business, why wouldn’t you want to share that gift?
If you do, I have some EASY ways to SHARE, to work harder by being smarter:

How?  Let the stickers do some of the work for you!  Work SMARTER by planting seeds about the wonderful opportunity you offer by using Key 6: Recruiting Stickers and Key 1: Booking Stickers on EVERY piece of paperwork you have!  This includes invitations, catalogs, flyers, envelopes, business cards, etc.

Think about it!  If sponsoring IS a numbers game then wouldn’t you want to invite EVERYONE to learn more about what you do?  If you’re sending out 30 invitations and only 8-10 come to your party, then only that 8-10 learn about what you offer!  When you put the recruiting and booking stickers on EVERY invitation, you’re planting seeds with all 30!  The stickers make it EASY to plant seeds (our eye-catching, colorful designs are so effective and affordable!)  Who might these seeds grow into?  How many people could you help?  You never know, but if you don’t do it, you never will!
As Wayne Gretzky said,
“You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take!”

Remember the ABCD Formula:  A= A Success Formula:
If the B for Benefit is Greater than the C for Cost = D DO IT!

Now is your chance to position yourself for greater success than you’ve ever had before!  Then, as the economy turns, YOU and THOSE WHO JOIN YOUR TEAM will be in a better position for your businesses to take off like a rocket!
You want to be persistent not pushy!

Think about how you could better serve the people you’ve met in the course of doing your business.  They may be looking for a way to earn products for free or extra income!  It’s up to YOU to offer them what you have!

T0-18 – Grow your Business … Book, Sell, Recruit & more!

T0-18---Grow-your-Business

Plant the seeds to grow what you want in your garden!

Have you ever considered the similarities between growing a garden and growing your business?
Let’s say there are two people who want to grow a garden:
•    The first only has a bucket to carry water and a shovel.
•    The second has the bucket and shovel along with a hoe, roto-tiller, hose, sprayer, fertilizer applicator and a myriad of other tools.
Who is going to have the easier time growing their garden?

Is it impossible to grow the garden with only a few tools? No, of course not! But which has the greater chance of success?

Let’s say you want to plant a garden.  You know you have to prepare the soil by tilling it up, applying fertilizer, etc. All this is done BEFORE you plant seeds right?

Many of you have taken this step already by learning your business, the products, the benefits and HOW to get bookings and sell. You are now ready to get something growing.

How does the gardener get things growing in their plot of land? Do they say, “Well, the ground is all ready! GROW! “ to the ground? If they did, and watered the ground what would come up? Weeds would probably be your first guess followed by volunteers and those volunteers would usually be OK but do you know what you’re getting.

Realistically, what would you do if you wanted to grow things in your garden? You would PLANT SEEDS!

You would find the type of things you want to grow and plant seeds.

The same is true for your business! The time is NOW to PLANT SEEDS! You have to let people know that YOU HAVE what they are looking for. As you begin to let people know the advantages and benefits of your business they will want to know more.  Then you can share your opportunity with them. You need to create interest is what you do and they will then want to know more.  If they decide to join you team you can then nourish, water and help them to grow!

Have you ever heard of THE SECRET?  It is a motivational book and movie based on the Law of Attraction which is said to work by attracting into a person’s life the experiences, situations, events, and people that “match the frequency” of the person’s thoughts and feelings. Therefore, positive thinking and feeling positive are claimed to create life-changing results such as increased wealth, health, and happiness.

I like to put it in a very simple form — you must put out there what you want to get back.  It is the essence of planting a seed.  If you want tomatoes, you must plant TOMATO seeds!  If you want tomatoes and plant cucumber seeds there is a pretty good chance you are going to get cucumbers, not tomatoes.  If you don’t plant any seeds at all, what are the chances you are going to get tomatoes?

So, let me say it again, “You must put out there what you want to get back!”

If you want BOOKINGS, you must let create interest in bookings by sharing the benefits of hosting a party!
If you want SUCCESSFUL PARTIES you must show your hosts you are committed to helping THEM have successful parties- inspire THEM to want success and understand they CAN make it happen!
If you want SALES, you must generate interest, share benefits and create desire to actually HAVE your products!
If you want COMMITTED CUSTOMERS you must let your customers you care about them and let them know that by coming back to you that you will help them and meet their needs!
If you want RECRUITS, you must create interest in the opportunities your business offers, help them SEE themselves doing what you do and be there when they are ready!
If you want a THRIVING TEAM you must help them find their WHY and help THEM plant their seeds and teach them how to nourish them.  By recognizing and rewarding their successes you’ll be nourishing them.  (See the LMP-07 — Apples in Seeds Theme Meeting: http://www.thebooster.com/363-lmp-07-apples-in-seeds)

So, now that you know that you NEED to plant seeds, HOW do you do it?

Well, of course you mention it during your demonstration. But do you realize researchers have found that it can take as many as 7 times being told something before it begins to sink in? If you were to say the same thing over and over again 7 times at your party people, YES, they would recognize it but how fun would your party be?

But, what if you put stickers that point out the advantages and benefits of your opportunity in your catalogs, on your invitations, wrapped around your pens, on your party folders or lap-boards, etc? Your customers would read those over and over again and the concepts would be planted in their minds. You would be planting seeds without even saying a word!

Now, of course you do want to SAY something too!  You would perhaps ask questions that get them asking YOU questions but I’m sure you can see the advantage of them seeing various stickers throughout your information to create awareness and curiosity.

Using ONE-LINERS PLUS the stickers is a way to plant LOTS of seeds during your demonstration and other times as well.  (For more details on this concept see T0-17 – Stickers in your catalogs relate to One Liners!)

So, start NOW to use Stickers & wear Buttons to plant seeds! 
Go to this IDEA CATEGORY (link is below) to see lots of products that relate to this concept.

We want to help you DIG UP CASH by building your team so here are some Recruiting and Sponsoring ideas of HOW to use stickers in your business:

1. Use RECRUITING Stickers on your invitations. Invited guests might not make it to the party, but their interest will be sparked by reading slogans such as (S60264)  “Full time pay, part time hours!” or (S60260) “Could you use an extra $100 per week?”

2. Put RECRUITING Stickers in your catalog, especially on the page where your company describes the benefits of your opportunity. Stickers like (S64107)  “I Love What I do! You can too!” or others shown in this idea CATEGORY product listing (T0-18),  create the BRAIN CONNECTION as if YOU were telling them this information instead of the corporation.

3. Name?: Whenever you put your name on a catalog, you should also include a RECRUITING Sticker. This shows YOUR enthusiasm for what you do. Stickers shown in this idea CATEGORY product listing (T0-18-link is below),   make a positive impact! In the party plan business, what is one of the best ways to get more money? GET RECRUITS! See the T0-16 — Personalization, make it EASY! idea on how to personalize the slogans with YOUR information.  Saves time because you are sticking TWO stickers at ONCE!  And, they look so professional!

HUNDREDS-no THOUSANDS of customers have told us that these STICKERS really DO WORK! We can hardly wait to hear of your success! Order today and start implementing these ideas!!

Also included in this IDEA CATEGORY T0-18 – Grow your Business … Book, Sell, Recruit & more! are Recruiting  BUTTONS, Bookmarks, & Postcards  (Just scroll down below the idea to see the complete list!)
Now, WHY should you use follow up postcards to send to recruit leads?  Did YOU join your company with the first person that asked you?  When I’ve traveled around the country I’ve asked top leaders this question.  Many of them say NO.  I ask why not?  They reply, “It took me a while to make the decision and by the time I was ready, they had not kept in contact with me.”

How many potential recruits have you lost because you haven’t kept in touch with them?  Now, I’m not suggestion you be PUSHY, but I am suggesting you be PERSISTENT!  Just keep in touch, even if they don’t join your team, you’ll at least have a customer.

Think about the ABCD formula.  A stands for A Success Formula.  If the B for Benefit is Greater than the C for Cost = D Do It!

So let’s do the math for sending postcards.  The postage is 33 cents, one of our recruiting postcards is  15 cents (or less if on sale)  for a total of 48 cents.  Let’s say you send 10 postcards to that ONE person over 6 months.  That’s $4.80.  How much do you make if that ONE person joins your team?  As someone said the other day at a presentation I did, “A LOT more than $4.80!

So, is the Benefit of “A LOT more than $4.80” greater than the cost of $4.80 = DO IT!  You never know what will happen when you DO keep in touch, but I doubt they’ll come to you six months down the road if you don’t!  How many chances are you losing because you don’t follow up?

But, before we go…. How are you keeping track of your recruit leads?  We have this wonderful Erase Board (EB6129) where you can track their name, phone number and the contacts you’ve made with them.  I LOVE the quote along the bottom, it reads,  “How do you help others become butterflies?” “Show them that to FLY is so wonderful that they are willing to give up being caterpillars.”

Remember, we can ALL create opportunities every day that can impact our lives.  “It’s what you do with what you have … that makes you who you are.”

T0-17 – Stickers in your catalogs relate to One Liners!

T0-17---Stickers-catalogs-one-liners

Create a BRAIN CONNECTION!

I went to a grocery store today that I don’t go to very often and I was so frustrated! I kept going in circles looking for specific items.

This reminded me of one of the BEST reasons for putting stickers in your catalogs.

NEW!!!!
FREE AUDIO by Jenny B!  I’ve done TWO Audio’s (mp3) of this training so you can download and listen again and again.  I’ve included LOTS of examples.

These will OPEN in a new window, and you can listen on your computer, or RIGHT CLICK and SAVE.  Then you can put it on your ipod and listen on the way to a party, etc!

So, In this training we are going to discuss a several different concepts and then put them together for the greatest impact.

Let’s go through the Who, What, Where, Why and When of stickers in your catalogs!
WHY use stickers in your catalogs?
1-they draw attention to product benefits and reasons they gotta have it!
2-They create awareness of the services you offer
3-They plant seeds about the benefits of being a host or joining your team
4-They show your enthusiasm for your business because you’re doing something extra.
5-They slow customers down so they take in what is on the pages
6-They change the perception of the corporation sharing messages with them to YOU talking to them.
7- BEST REASON- keep reading the BEST reason is the combination…..

WHAT stickers should you put in your catalogs?
1-SALES (Key 4 stickers) to draw attention to specific offers or specials on your products such as:
S40579 –Customer Favorite, Gotta Try it! Best Seller, Popular Item SET
PR41026 — Easy Online Shopping
S40492 — Gifts every Holiday

S43117 — Think Ahead! Birthdays, Weddings
PR40262 — Save on Sets!
LS4264 — Husband call, get want!

2-SALES (Key 4 stickers) to draw attention to YOUR (COMPANY) specific products
such as: just too many to mention- check out the TAGS on the VERY BOTTOM LEFT of the website and select a tag that relates to your business.

3-SALES (Key 4 stickers) to let people know how to order or keep in touch with, and order from, you such as:

PSA4204PR — Call me anytime
PR40254 — EMAIL Phone Online Orders
PR41062B — Please Like on Facebook
PSA4205PR — Visit me on Web.
4-BOOKING (Key 1 stickers) to plant booking seeds and let customers know the benefits of hosting a party or show such as:
LS1122 — Every item has 3 prices
LS1261 –Wish I see tonight
PR10658 — Your Wish List Free
PR10810 — Book Could Be Starter Show
PR10928 — Wanted Hosts Earn Free Gifts

S10411 — Why Pay Full Price
S12175 — If Like What See get it Free
S20415A-PR — PERSONALIZED Hostess Never Pay Full
S10517 — If heart yes checkbook no show
5-RECRUITING (Key 6 stickers) to plant recruiting seeds and let customers know the benefits of joining your team such as:
LS6265 — Like it buy little
PR11044 — Love it-Join Team
PR60586B — Really Make serious money
PR60586C — Make Serious Money
PR60801 — Start Your Own Business
PR60903 — Have fun boost income
PR61028 — I Get Paid to Party!
S600497 — What do with Extra $1000 per month
S600494 — $200 a week impact your life
S64017 — I Love What I Do
S64054 — Wanted Enthusiasm
WHERE should you put the stickers your catalogs?
1-On the FRONT and BACK.  Use some of the larger designs!  Be sure to use the PERSONALIZED sticker with your contact info on the BACK.  (Fast, professional, easy to read!  See idea T0-16- EASY personalization for more ideas)
2- INSIDE your catalogs.  Depending on the size of your catalog, many customers tell us they use ONE sticker on every 2-page layout.  They say that the notice customers STOP- look at the sticker and see what is around it (why it is there) before turning the page.  It slows them down and draws attention to specific products.
3-EVEN in MINI CATALOGS- follow the same guide lines as above.
4- On the page that talks about your opportunity, be sure to use the “I love what I do, you can too” as it changes the offer on the page from being from your company to relating to YOU- makes it much more personal.
5-Be sure and put a booking sticker on the host info page.  Make it personal!
6-SALE stickers- draw attention to specials!  (What if the special is a limited time offer and your catalog will be used beyond the sale?– When the sale is over just cover that sticker up with a similar sized booking or recruiting sticker!  Simple.
7-TAB pages you want to draw attention to during your party.  Overlap a sticker about 1/4″ on one side and put the same shape on the other side to make a TAB.  (Or the PEN PAL stickers work great)  Then draw attention to them during your party.  This will make it easy for guests to find those specific products when it comes time to order.
WHO should get stickered catalogs?
1-Everyone at your parties… the stickers reinforce what you are saying (and remind you to say it– see more about this in the One-Liner training below.)
2-Catalogs used for BOOK parties!  You aren’t there to point out specific products so it is even MORE important (if it could be more important!)
3-Catalogs you give to customers to take home.  Your stickers may be different than those used at your party, you’ll definitely want to have more of the HOW TO ORDER type with your personalized information and how to order.

HINT- If you have specific catalogs you prepare for your catalogs that you want to use time after time, put this sticker on the front: PR40521 — Catalog for Show not Go
If you have a different catalog for them to take home, use  this sticker on the front: PR40405 — Catalog Show NOT To Go- ASK for To Go Copy

WHEN should you sticker you catalogs?
1-When NEW catalogs come out, take ONE and decide which stickers you are going to put on which pages.  Some have more white space, some designs will fit perfectly on certain places!  Have fun, look at the different designs and plan what goes where.  Then, use this as your master and “sticker” a bundle of catalogs at a time!  You can even have your kids or a neighbor kid do it.  Once you’ve created the master, they just follow!
2- What do you do with LEFT OVER catalogs, or those catalogs you prepared for parties and now the new one is out?  Use the OLD CATALOG stickers on the front and back and take them to Doctor offices, hair salons, gyms, any kind of waiting room, Laundromats, etc. and leave a few.  WHY use the old catalog sticker?  It lets customers KNOW that you KNOW it is outdated and giving them options, instead of them thinking, “Oh, this is outdated” and then throw it away!”  You can also put the sticker
WP-PR40447A — Take Me Home Free! so they know they can take it!
OK, now that you have your catalogs stickers- what is the BEST REASON?  Well, I’m not quite done presenting the ENTIRE concept…. please bear with me just a little bit longer…

I often teach a concept I call “One Liners”

WHAT are one-liners?  They are short little slogans you “Tie” to a product that promote a REASON to buy, book or join your team!
WHY use one-liners?  Because your customers don’t have time to tune you out!  You’ve seen it happen, you begin your “booking spiel” (speech designed to convince: an irritatingly long or predictably glib speech, e.g. a rambling apology or prepared sales patter) and you lose their attention, they start talking to a neighbor, or bury their head in their catalog.  They already decided they were not going to have a party and are definitely NOT interested in joining your company.
But, when you use one-liners throughout your demo (or at other times) you are creating interest and curiosity about your products or opportunities you offer but once you give the one-liner you move on and they only have a chance to question, or generate interest, but not become bored or tune you out!
HOW do you create one-liners?  You pick a product and pick a slogan and “tie” them together and memorize them so they just roll off your tongue!  (Guess what?  I’ve created a PDF you can download along (that includes worksheets) that gives you all the details of exactly HOW to do it)  Just order this training item and you’ll get the link to the PDF in your order history.  But the simple way is to look through our sticker slogans and work them into your one-liners.
WHEN do you use one-liners?  At every party or show!  Once you get them learned you’ll find you can “sprinkle” about 10 booking, 10 recruiting and 10 sales one-liners during your demo.

So NOW that you’ve learned about ONE-LINERS let’s get to that BEST REASON:  When you tie the ONE-LINER that incorporates a sticker slogan to your product and put the sticker BY that product in your catalog you are creating a BRAIN CONNECTION!

Here’s a few examples:
Find a product in your catalog that is EASY to use, put the PR10435A — Party Easy As 1-2-3! by it.  During your demo, ask your customers to flip to page ____ where the sticker and product is (If you have the product in your display, show it) and after explaining a little about the product say, “Using this______ to ______ is as easy as 123 and so is having a party with me! AND MOVE ON TO THE NEXT ITEM IN YOUR DEMO.

Then put the “S10517 — If heart yes but your checkbook says no, book  show” sticker by a product that is a little more expensive but is well worth the price.  Suggest they flip to that page, demo the item, and say, “Do you know why I put the “If heart yes but your checkbook says no, book  show” sticker by ______?”  Then wrap your arms around the product and give it a hug and say, “Because I absolutely LOVE this product and I know you will too, and if it is beyond your budget, just book a show and I can help you get it at a discounted price or even for FREE! THEN MOVE ON TO THE NEXT ITEM IN YOUR DEMO.
You will do the SAME thing with RECRUITING and SALES slogans.  Then, as your customers flip through the catalog and SEE the stickers they will be reminded of what you said about the products.  You’ll be creating a DESIRE for them to have it and their BRAIN will figure out a way for them to get it!  That’s called the BRAIN CONNECTION and you’ll be AMAZED how they’ll remember when you make that connection!

Now, this takes me to my GROCERY STORE analogy and the BEST REASON for combining these two concepts.  Just as we all like shopping in a grocery store where we know where everything is, your customers will ENJOY shopping from your catalog when they know where to find the different products!  The stickers make it EASY for you to refer to the products in your catalog and they’ll not only know WHERE to find them, but they’ll remember WHY they want to have them!

So with your catalogs and one-liners, you have a chance to make an impact- with a little more effort and combining these concepts will be a MUCH bigger impact.

LMP-22-Believe in your Dreams –Do the work!

LMP-22---Believe-Dreams-Work

You must TAKE ACTION, or DO the work! This training discusses the importance of BOTH

Dreams!  Why all this talk about dreams?  You hear and see it everywhere! In fact “Dreams in Action” is our annual theme!  We are using lots of other “Dream” slogans:  What is your dream? Go after your dream! Your dream is alive! Dreams create futures!  And on and on and on…

But, what REALLY is your dream?   Why is it so important to have dreams?  Aren’t dreams what you have when you are asleep and most times you can’t even remember them?

Why should we even discuss or focus on dreams?  We call them dreams, but goals is really what we’re discussing.  However, when you attach emotion to a goal, it becomes a dream.

Dreams are the first step to creating your reality.  The dream is what you have to have before the goal.  Dreams are things in the future.  Goals bring those dreams into focus on a daily basis.  If you don’t have the dream, it is hard to decide what your goals are.  The dream is what you want and who you want to be.  The goal is the method that takes you toward your dream.  Your dream is like the north star.  It is what guides you.  By focusing on your dream, you are able to develop goals that take you there.

Now, some like to just set a major goal.  They don’t even mention the word dream and I guess that is OK, however; I believe the “Dream” is what drives us in our heart.  Without the dream, it is just a goal.  You reach the goal and go on.

The dream is more integrated into your life.  Your dream has a piece of you in it beyond the goal.    Some have a dream of a better world where people care more about each other.  Some have a dream of a clean environment.  Others have more personal dreams such as sitting on the deck of a cruise ship, or relaxing with someone they love.  Your dream could be building a business that is beneficial to you and your family.  Your dream might be to build a team of people that have fun while working and making money.  Maybe you want to see yourself in that red sports car.  Or it might be more important to you to have time to spend with your children and grandchildren.  Whatever your dream, you must first recognize it and define it.  They may be small dreams, or they may be BIG dreams that are the dreams for your life.  Whatever level, you need to decide what it is you really want to accomplish.

However- there are TWO important elements that have to occur to achieve your dreams.
ONE:  You must BELIEVE!  We talked about the dream (instead of goal) involves your heart.  But BELIEVING involves your HEAD!  You MUST have believable dreams!  You have to be able to SEE yourself in the realization of your dreams!  That is why last month we created VISION Boards!  This is to help you visualize your dream so it becomes believable.  So, practice visualizing your dream as reality!  SEE yourself achieving it!
TWO: Do the work, Do the work, Do the work!  Believing is extremely important but ACTION is equally, if not MORE important!  In fact, I’m a believer in “Fake it till you make it!”  Sometimes, you have to take action and SEE some success for the belief to kick in!
We’ve been discussing all year how important it is to take ACTION!  As you take consistent ACTION to apply the principles to boost your business, you WILL see changes, you will see RESULTS!

Remember, WORK will win when Wishing Won’t!

Business Basics:
This month’s Consultant Level training on Key 3: Attendance is one of the BEST concepts to realize the
importance of “Working” the business because as you put the FOUR stickers on your invitations, and actually mail them yourself, you will see a measurable difference!  You’ll have people bringing friends, booking parties and wanting to know more about your opportunity!
Be sure to share the ABCD formula and apply it to your business!

Activity:
Included in this Leadership Key Pack is a NEW, To Do Erase Board.  It is a new concept to make it easy to track what needs to be done and SEE where you are in your process.  As your activity, give everyone a board and explain how to use it to help them stay focused and DO THE WORK in their businesses!

T7-04 – To Do Motivational Boards-Job ChartsHere’s how it works:
It is a DOUBLE size board with 5 sections.  Each section has a header.  I will go through and explain how each section is used.  The idea is to use those SMALL (2” x 1 1/2”) Post It type sticky notes.  You will MOVE the notes with a TASK written on it from section to section of the board.  The board is LAMINATED for TWO reasons.  1- the sticky notes last much longer on the laminated surface & 2, if you want to actually write on the board with a wet-erase pen (VEB-PEN) you can, and then easily erase it.

Now, here’s the concept.  check out the complete idea on this in the POST:

T7-04 – To Do Motivational Boards-Job Charts

Conclusion:
In previous theme meetings we’ve helped you get your dreams in front of you.  Now, with this new TO DO chart, you have something tangible to help focus on the work you need to do to achieve them?  Remember, dreams are your north star.  They are intended to give you direction.  “If we don’t change the direction we are going, we are likely to end up where we are heading.” –Chinese proverb.

The emotion of WHY you want these items is an even greater motivation than the item itself.  What is going to be so great about the cruise?  When you have the dream and the reason written down, it provides motivation to work toward achieving the goals that take you toward your dream.

You often hear of opportunities where people tell you that you can make lots and lots of money.  They make it sound so easy.  They lay it in front of you and tell you “all you have to do is ______ and I will help you be rich!”  I and others tend to call these “get rich quick schemes” and a scheme is just what it is.  Occasionally someone will fall into something and they will make tons of money.  This is RARELY, if ever, true.  In most cases it takes lots of hard work!
Give everyone this Bookmark (BM70469) and suggest they put it in their datebook, or an inspirational book they are reading to remind themselves to DO THE WORK!

You’ve seen new celebrities on TV who all of a sudden are in the lime light.  They are an overnight sensation!  In most cases the climb to fame is far from overnight.  How many tables did they wait? How many dogs did they walk? How many dishes did they wash?  Many have spent years going from audition to audition, then they get a job on a show that becomes a hit and they are an overnight sensation!  Anything that is of value takes WORK!

Start TODAY to use the Believe “To Do” Board! (EB7142)  to make it EASY
to VISUALLY keep what you need to do in front of you without re-writing over and over again!

T0-16 — Personalization, make it EASY!

T0-16 -- Personalization, make it EASY

Why use boring white labels with your contact information on your catalogs, invitations, etc. when you can use our COLORFUL graphics and borders to make your message stand out?

Why use boring white labels with your contact information on your catalogs, invitations, etc. when you can use our COLORFUL graphics and borders to make your message stand out?

PS-look at the difference

Just look at the difference…. Borders and Graphics make your message stand out!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Just look at the difference….  Borders and Graphics make your message stand out!  We offer many of our most popular designs in the “Printable Sticker” format so you can stick TWO messages as once.   Your customers will be drawn to the graphic along with your information!  Of course you can also print a message with the graphic that are unique to your products or services.

How many sales have you lost because you have not put ALL your contact information on your catalogs?  How many sales have you lost because you quickly wrote your name on your catalog but not your complete phone number with your area code (and someone out of the area got your catalog but couldn’t reach you?)
How many sales have you lost because you “stamped” your contact info on your catalog but it smeared and your email address or phone number was not readable?
How many sales have you lost because you MEANT to get your information on your catalog but somehow didn’t?
How many sales have you lost because you were going to put your contact info onto a catalog at a fair or event but didn’t get it done so they got the catalog with someone else’s name on it?

Think about it — have you just lost SALES or perhaps BOOKINGS or RECRUITS because your contact information wasn’t there or wasn’t readable?  The cost of the stickers is CHEAP in comparison to how much you’ve lost.  STOP LOSING and START GETTING those sales and leads NOW by using these stickers on EVERY catalog or mini-catalog you give out!

Our Printable Stickers are PROFESSIONAL looking, readable, don’t smear, get their attention, plant seeds along with your contact info, and are EASY!

The Printable Stickers are shown throughout the STICKER categories on our website,  however, if you are specifically looking for stickers that can be personalized (either by YOU or by US) see SHOP ALL PRODUCTS then Custom & Printable Stickers CATEGORY which is then divided by the size and shape of the sticker.

Here’s some usage ideas:

  • Use these colorful stickers as mailing labels, as return address labels, to remind customers and hosts of specials, or to add any message to samples and free gifts.
  • Personalize the Business Card and Address sizes to use on your catalogs.  We offer many slogans that you can personalize with your information, yet the graphic and borders make your information stand out.  Slogans like “What would you do with an extra $1000 a month? (S600497BC-PS or PR) or “Earn some Free when you party with me” (S10480BC-PR or PS) will get them thinking about the benefits of hosting a party, your opportunity, etc.  This also shows an enthusiasm for your business that your customers will recognize.
  • You can also stick the business card size stickers on the business card size magnets (M10 or MBC10).  Your customers will see it on their fridges over and over again and call you when they need your services or products.  The slogans on our stickers turn what appears to be a business card into a relationship building card.  For example, how do you think she’ll feel when she reads the slogan “I would love to have you on my team” (PSB6309) or “Customers like you make my day” (PSB5307) on her fridge verses just your contact information.
  • Use the PS Business Card sizes to print your HOST information and put them on the invitations provided by your company.  This makes it EASY to get your invitations ready.   We have lots of slogans like “Bring a Friend, Receive a Free Gift” that you can print on and they get that message as well as the host info.  See IDEA T3-03 Easy, Effective Invitations Attract Attendance for more suggestions on this concept.
  • SAVE TIME as you’ll be sticking TWO messages at once!
  • SAVE SPACE as you’ll get your message and the colorful graphic in the same amount of space on your invitations or catalogs.
  • Are you putting YOUR Name and a way to contact you on every invitation?  If you are not, how does someone get a hold of you if they don’t attend the party?  Use the MINI stickers and at least put your name and phone number.  The “I Love What I do” PSM6502 are perfect for this because they plant a recruiting seed along with your info!
  • PS-on-matchbooks-with-text

    • If you sell candles, give your guests a matchbook with your information on the outside. (Our Small Square Stickers (SS) are the perfect size! You can buy inexpensive matchbooks at the grocery store and personalize them!

    If you sell candles, give your guests a matchbook with your information on the outside.  (Our Small Square Stickers (SS) are the perfect size!  You can buy inexpensive matchbooks at the grocery store and personalize them!

  • Personalize ANY little “Giveaway” that goes with your product line by putting a personalized sticker on it.  We have MANY sizes to choose from.  The SHINY material (printed by us) holds up really well when put on a product.)

What is the difference between a PS or PR? 

When the PS is at either the beginning or the end of the item number then:

  • PS designates that it is a PRINTABLE STICKER, which means YOU can print your own information.
  • We provide FREE TEMPLATES (which show you exactly where to type your information.)   You will then print ONTO the pre-printed stickers you purchase from us with your own ink-jet or laser printer.  You can print your information with BLACK ink onto the colorful stickers which saves you a fortune on ink!   Sticker material is laser or ink jet compatible. (However we make NO GUARANTEE as printers may vary.)
  • The PS sticker material is a MATTE finish so it will accept the image from your printer.
  • Free Templates

    FREE Templates make it EASY for you to print ONTO our colorful stickers

    Our FREE TEMPLATES are a Microsoft WORD document.  For the template that goes with each sticker design, click VIEW on the product then the DOWNLOAD tab.  You’ll be able to download the template.

  • We also offer “Using our Templates for Dummies” with complete step by step instructions and a quick overview instructions.  So, no matter your computer knowledge, you’ll be able to easily print your stickers.
  • The print space on each sticker is white so you can print, write, copy, or  stamp whatever  you want  on the stickers of your choice.

When a “PR” is at the END of the item number then:

  • PR designates a Custom or Personalized sticker PRinted BY US.
  • On the website, just fill in the information that you want printed onto the specific graphic or border sticker – there is an option to REPEAT the information so if you are ordering several different designs and want the same info on all of them, you can select that option and don’t need to enter your info over and over again.
  • Let us print them for you!

    Let us print them for you!

    We will print your information FOR YOU onto the colorful GRAPHIC or BORDER sticker so they come all ready to go.

  • MOST* of the stickers that we print for you will be on a SHINY material (they will begin with a PR or S!)  (*Most of the stickers beginning with a PS are a matte finish.)
  • We offer Quantity Pricing so if you get a Quantity of the SAME DESIGN with the SAME TEXT printed by us, you can really save and it only costs pennies more for us to print your information for you.
  • A Proof is available for a $5 fee.  YOU MUST ADD the A-PROOF item to ONE of the items you are ordering. (You’ll see the A-PROOF item in the Accessories in the FAR LEFT column) You will then get a low-resolution proof of ALL the personalized items ordered on that order.  If you don’t add the proof, we are not responsible for any errors.  We rarely make mistakes, but they do happen.  Sometimes it is YOU the customer who makes a mistake.
  • Why do we charge for the proof? 1-it is additional work.  2- we must send you the proof and then wait for your response to finish your order, so it delays the process and takes a lot more time because we must deal with multiple processes.

Our printable stickers are available in many colors, designs, and sizes. Watch for the letter that designates size in the item number.
