T0-05 Creating Momentum

0-05-Creating-Momentum Idea

How can you create momentum in your business?

January sets the tone for your entire year….  but every day is the beginning of a new year!
What do you want to happen in your business?
Basically you have two choices
Maintain the status quo OR Make your business grow!

Which is it that you want?

If you just want to maintain the status quo, that’s fine, just keep doing what you are doing.  Let’s look at what happens as you have parties regularly:

If you do an average of AT LEAST one party a week, you probably won’t lose any ground.  You’ll stay about the same, you may get the occasional recruit.  Keep in mind that you’ll have to work really hard to keep that one party a week because if you have a cancellation or postponement, that will set you back even more.  You wouldn’t have gotten that next booking or met that next customer….  You’ll have to work harder on getting outside orders, get on the phone to keep even that one party per week.  I warn you, it can become really hard to stay motivated and excited about what you are doing.  One negative comment, or NO, can really set you back and slows your momentum even more.

If you are only having ONE party a week, how many NEW people are you meeting?

What happens when you hold TWO parties a week?  You see a shift in your business!  You are more organized.  You know exactly what you need to do when.  You are out meeting people and sharing your products and opportunity so you are improving  your communication skills.  Your cancellations or postponements are rare because you are following all the steps to a successful party.

If you are having TWO parties a week how many people are you meeting?  Think about it, you’ve just DOUBLED your contacts!  You tend to be MORE enthused in your products and opportunity!  You are getting better and better at your presentation.  There are far more positives than negatives and that keeps you more positive!

Once you COMMIT to consistently having TWO parties a week, you see a shift in your business.  You begin to PLAN on being successful.  You PLAN the time to do your business.  You become energized by what is happening … the growth you feel is electric!

Now, what happens if you start having THREE parties a week? 

You’ve now TRIPPLED the contact you’ve made and you’ve TRIPPLED the money you make!  This is when you really begin to see a vitality come into your business.  You become more focused.  You’re actually able to do more!  You get into a routine that builds on your success. (What if you don’t have the time to do 3 parties a week and you still want to see a boost in vitality and income to your business?  It IS possible- keep reading!)

What do you do?

1) Make a decision!  What do you want?  Where do you want your business to be by the next quarter, mid way through the year, by the fall, by the end of the year?

2)  Face up to WHAT you need to DO to achieve your goals? Believing in yourself and keeping a positive attitude ARE important, but what you actually DO is equally important!  When you combine BOTH you become a winner.  We have a bookmark (BM72628) that says” A party fixes everything! Need Money? Book a party! Need Recruits? Book a Party. Need more parties? Book a Party!

It all starts with booking and HAVING parties.  The more successful the party is, the better!

3) Have a PLAN to make EVERY PARTY as successful as it can be!  Yes, there are specific steps you can take to bring you success.  Embrace your decision.  If you want success then you need to DO what is necessary to bring that success into your business.  All the wishing you do without the action will only give you dreams, not REALITY.  If you want the reality of a successful business  … take the steps to success!

4)  I know it can be hard, so give yourself an edge.  “Say it with Stickers!”  How can this help?  I’ll let my customers say it for me:
— I am so thrilled with your products! I have purchased the K-Success SIX Pack, random stickers, the ‘pick-a-date’ pack and buttons, but I must say the stickers are my absolute favorite! I put them on everything. My husband helps me put them on all of the invitations and when I explain what they are to the Hostesses they get really excited. By following the steps in your K-SUCCESS pack and divider system, my business is really starting to pick up and I am regaining my momentum. Using the stickers has really boosted the attendance at my parties. I finally joined the Key Pack Club, too, so I am looking forward to getting stickers automatically every month! Thanks so much! –Tia Johns
–Rave Review on Stickers! I have been using stickers since I started my business and love how they add color and emphasis to my invitations, postcards, thank yous and catalogs. Thanks for making them a great tool and affordable.
–Maren Larson – Jackson, MN

— Love ALL the bright, colorful stickers! I use them on every invitation, order sheets, and even my general mailings. I’m getting positive comments on them at my parties too. My favorite item is Booster Bingo! I am able to use MY products in the squares, which draws attention to those that I am detailing. I hand out a Bingo Card and ‘Wish List’ at the beginning of my presentation. This keeps my party guests ‘on track’ by paying attention to what I say, and what I’m showing. Thank You for so many fabulous ideas!   –Susan Schotten – Austin, CO

— Fanta-stick! I LOVE all the wonderful tools that you have to offer and I also LOVE the fact that you can even make your own stickers to fit your needs if you don’t see something in particular that you would like. (See the Printable Stickers) The Key packs are a wonderful tool in helping your business and they show what you can do with each and every sticker that comes with them!!!!!!!  Mary Strassburg – Weston WI

5)  START!  Using the stickers increases your odds of boosting your results.  Sure, you’re going to run into rejection, no’s and people not calling you back.  Are you going to let that stop your momentum?  Or, are you going to do those “little things” that make a BIG difference in overcoming all the negatives and planting the positives?

6) ADVERTISE!  “Advertising is a form of communication used to encourage or persuade an audience (viewers, readers or listeners) to continue or take some new action!  You HAVE to put out there what you want to come back to you!

How many times at a party can you say the words “Have you ever thought of doing what I’m doing?” to get your customers thinking of this concept?  Once, maybe twice?  But how many times are they THINKING it when the sticker is put in or on your catalogs and folders?  You want to SAY it at least once in your “one-liners” that you mention during your party, but when you use the sticker, they’ll be thinking about it MANY times throughout the party.  This is advertising!  I often refer to it as “planting seeds.”  Once you plant, odds are that things will grow….  But it you don’t plant- what are the odds of things growing?

I challenge you to make a plan, then follow it!  Do whatever you need to do to fill your date book.  Then, do everything you possibly can to make each party as successful as it can possibly be!

Use the stickers to BOOST your odds.  Our customers that use the stickers tell us that they get the “Boost” in results as if they were holding 3 parties per week when they are only holding 2.  HOW?  Because they get a boost in attendance so their customer list grows.  They get a boost in bookings so they are consistently getting TWO new bookings from each party- their datebook stays full from parties so they can spend time following up with customers and getting even more sales rather than having to chase down bookings.

They are getting MORE recruit leads and recruits because people are drawn to their momentum!  They want to be part of a winning team with a winning, committed leader.  All of these things bind together into greater success.

Key 1- Get More Bookings…

Key 1- Get Bookings Booming Training

There IS a science to keeping your date-book filled!

Booking parties (or shows) is the lifeblood of your business! 
Use these items to catch attention, make the idea of hosting a party seem fun and easy, plus entice them to book with you so they can earn free products. 
Your customers will love  “picking a date” so they can “pick a prize”
and your date books will stay full.

There really IS a science or a formula to getting your bookings booming!  It has been studied and analyzed for YEARS by people in the party plan profession. 

Here is the FORMULA:

1- Get people excited about your products.
2- Develop a DESIRE in them to have them.
3- Show them how FUN and easy it is to host a party.
4- Help them feel valued by you and their friends.
5- Let them know they can earn them for FREE!
6- Get them thinking about it.
7- Point out the benefits of being a host.
8- Offer incentives for them to book with you
9- Overcome any objections
10- ASK them!

The more of the things in the formula you do the easier it is to book.  The products in this pack make it EASY to apply the different elements of the formula!  Use them TODAY to get your DateBook filled!

KEY 1: Increase Datings and Bookings!
 As you know, the party-plan industry is based on gathering groups of people together so you can demonstrate and sell your products.   The benefits of selling products in a “party atmosphere” are many, but here are just a few:

—  The guests at your parties will generally be pleasant and attentive because they view the shopping experience as a night out with friends in a comfortable atmosphere where they can visit and shop.  (We all know that shopping with friends is more fun than shopping alone.)

—  Friends help encourage sales.  Often people are afraid to make decisions so their friends will say, “Yes, you need that! That would be great for you!”  Such comments can increase your sales dramatically. 

—  Customers will book their own parties so they can earn the products they want for FREE, and because they know how fun your parties can be.  Each hostess usually encourages her friends to book and buy more so that she can earn more FREE products.  (This creates a chain reaction of more bookings and contacts which is the key to keeping your business thriving.)

—  You, the consultant, has the opportunity to meet new people, build relationships, and share your opportunity with others.

—  Because you generally do not have to pay overhead costs such as a lease for a store, insurance, etc. your commissions can be very high.  Also, most party-plan and direct selling businesses are simple to start and fun to work!

 Booking parties is the lifeblood of your business.

If you don’t get bookings, you are less likely to meet as many new people to share your products with, therefore decreasing your sales.  At your parties you increase your customer list, generate recruit leads, book even more parties, etc.  One of the first things you need to learn and continue to improve upon is HOW to keep your DateBook filled with parties.  This is your “work schedule!” 

Let’s review the FORMULA that has proven to keep your DateBook filled and see how Booster Products can help you.    The first FOUR steps in the formula,

1- Get people excited about your products, 
2- Develop a DESIRE in them to have them, 
3- Show them how FUN and easy it is to host a party, &
4- Help them feel valued by you and their friends.
These will actually be covered more in future key training.  But in a nutshell, it is all about how you present your products and convey caring to host and customers.  Many consider that when they’ve done this – they’re done.  That it is up to the customer from there … but as mentioned in items 5-10 there is so much more!  Here are some ideas:

1. Plant booking seeds by using STICKERS on your invitations and catalogs.

 Use booking stickers on invitations, flyers, and catalogs to get people thinking about  the benefits of being a hostess even before you talk to them about it.  They may be wondering how they can “Earn Some Free.”  Or, the idea of having a “Girls night out” might be just what they are needing.  It is your job to help people see the advantages and have the desire to book a party.
 Using booking stickers on the invitations gives you the opportunity to mention the concept of booking earlier in your demonstration.  At the beginning of the party you can use one-liners like “Did anyone notice the sticker on your invitation that said ‘Money Low?  Book a show?’  Well when you have a show, just as Suzy did, you can earn products for FREE.”
 Not everyone will want to have a party, but when you plant the booking seeds in advance with stickers, they have at least thought about it.  Asking for bookings is a numbers game.  To play the game, you must ask EVERYONE!  It just might surprise you who will say YES!
 Many people tell us that their business is successful because they ASK EVERYONE!  The worst that can happen is they will say no!  What does a “no” hurt?  Just count that as one more “no” on the way to “yes,” but KEEP ASKING!  Sometimes the same person that said “no” one day may say “yes” another day when she’s in a better mood, or she gets to know you better, or she has a certain product she really wants, etc.

2. Use Buttons & SIGNS to get them asking questions.

 When guests ask YOU questions, they are more likely to listen to what you are saying.  During your demo you have a captive audience.  Make the most of every opportunity to impact your guests with the advantages of having their own party!   Put up the sign “If I don’t ask you to have a party, pick a prize!” (DS1713) or wear the button (B11244).  Your guests will be waiting for you to ask so they can get the prize.  The prize could be as simple as a wrapped candy bar or a magnet, but at least you’ll get them talking about and thinking about having a party. 
 Hang the “Every item has 3 prices” Business Card Poster (BCP1205PR) up in stores.  It has room for you to put your company name and your contact info on all the tear-off business cards.  Then you can add a more personal message on the sign section. 
(We also have a blank gradient (BCP1207PR) and other colored sign that we can put whatever you want on.)  These are available ONLINE and we print them for you.

3. Use Postcards to contact previous hostesses.

   In today’s busy world, many people play phone tag.  Eliminate at least one step by sending a postcard to contact previous hostesses.  Again, you plant the seed and get them thinking about when would be the best time to host a party.  Better yet, they might contact you!  The “Wish list free” (P10629C) postcards make this so easy.  (We offer this with or without text- Download the FREE TEMPLATE to print onto the Graphic only.)
 These postcards “break the ice.”  If you just sit down and begin making phone calls to previous customers and hostesses, it is a “cold call”.  But if you send the postcard first, and THEN make the follow-up call, it is a “warm call.”  Warm calls generally generate a higher percentage of positive responses because they have already considered the benefits of booking a party. 
 Make it easy on yourself by using the Printable Postcards.  Many of our designs of printable postcards are available with type or without type so you can fill it with any message you want and print onto them from your own computer or hand write a message and copy ONTO them.  (As always the free templates are online under each postcard number.)
 Most importantly, whenever you send out postcards or flyers, make a list of WHO you sent them to and make sure to FOLLOW UP with phone calls!  Even if you call them and they say no to booking a party, you can offer to tell them about current specials and ask them if they are in need of any products.

4. Talk about BOOKING throughout your demonstrations. Use lots of one liners.
 
 It is so much more effective to use “one liners” throughout your demonstrations, than to give a several minute dissertation during your party.  Here are some “one liner” suggestions you can say while holding up your products:

—  “Just say yes to having a party and this could be yours,”

—  “When you have your own party you could earn this!”

—  “You will love having me come into your home to give a demonstration to your friends just like we are doing tonight for Sue.”

 You get the idea.  Write down a list of all the reasons to have a party and turn them into “one liners.”  Memorize your “one liners” and mentally attach them to a product.  Then, when you pick up that product to show in your demonstration you automatically say the “one liner.”

 See the FREE PDF of a worksheet you can use to come up with one-liners. 
 (see the link below to this training on our website.)

 You will find people are so much more open to having parties when you have pointed out the benefits or advantages to them during the party in a nonthreatening way.  They will begin asking YOU questions!
 This method is more natural and less pushy and offensive than others.  This enables you to plant 10 or more “booking seeds” during your demonstration!
 
Put Booking “Pen Pal” stickers on the pens that your customers use and refer to them during the presentation.  They will read the slogans over and over again and you will SAVE YOUR PENS too!  A sheet of “Wish List Free” Pen Pal Stickers is included as your free gift.  Go ahead and order the Combo sheet of Booking Pen Pal Stickers  (SSPPK1) so you can try a variety of slogans.  Just wrap them around the top of you pens like a flag! (Instructions are on the back of the sheet.)  Part of your free gift is a pen with the pen pal sticker already put on it for you.  Did YOU read the sticker as you opened your pack?  Your guests will read them too as they open their guest folders.

5. YOU never know!!!!
 
 You just never know what is going to motivate your customers to become hostesses.  That is why we have such a variety of booking stickers available.  Maybe someone is out of money but has a wish list full of your products that they want to earn.  Others just might want a good excuse to get all their girlfriends together.  Or, maybe they need some ideas for gifts and want an easy way to shop.  Always draw attention to the benefits of booking by using stickers throughout your catalogs and flyers.

6. Motivate them to book by offering FREE GIFTS, and FUN. 

 Many customers will book a party to receive certain free gifts.  Find out what your customers like and use those as motivators.  Some of our customers have told us that they can book the parties OK, but then they can’t get them to hold. 
To avoid cancellations tell your customers you will give them their prize the night of THEIR party. (Held on the original date booked.)
 The free gifts tend to be the thing that motivates most people to book.  However, people will also book parties because they enjoyed your company and the fun parties that you hold.  Make your parties fun and entertaining, befriend your guests and hostesses.  This will appeal to your guests, and your DateBook will be full! 
 Many times, your guests will be having such a good time that they will encourage each other to be hostesses.  They will tell their friends that they will come to each other’s parties because there are more things they want.  Sometimes they will tell you “NO,” but remember to listen to what THEY are saying.  Are they saying no never? Not right now? Or I’d rather do a catalog party?  Find out each person’s specific needs and help each person to see the specific benefits for her.  

Use the “Pick a DATE and Pick a Prize” products to encourage guests to BOOK. 
—   Before your parties for the week, prepare your “Pick a Date Erase Board” with the NEXT 4 weeks.  Write the dates in the corner of each circle, leaving room for guests to write their name and phone number.
—  Using a wet-erase pen, make big star bursts around the dates you want to fill.  Only put 1 day each week (even if your have more available).  This creates a sense of urgency.  If they want a different date, you can check your date book, but they wouldn’t get the prize unless the other dates highlighted are already filled.  Mark off boxes that you already have a party booked or days you don’t want to have a party.  Note specific hours if you only have an afternoon or evening available.

—  (We have only provided 3-4 weeks on our “Pick a Prize” calendar because it keeps your business moving better if you only date as far out as 3 weeks.  Also, you don’t want to give a prize for dating further out because they tend to lose their motivation and excitement for doing the party so long after booking.)
—   Decide how and what you want to use for prizes. There are several different options:  
1)  You could wrap up some gifts and put them on display. 
2)  You can put the “Pick a Date” stickers (PR10850 or S10404) by items in your catalog or actually on the products in your display that they can pick.  The sticker  on the product will remind you to mention it and it reminds your guests as they are looking at your products.
3)  You can put pictures of the prizes from your catalog together on one page and make copies.    Then put those copies in each of the guest folders. 
Remember, you’ll actually give them their gift at their show when held on the original date booked!
I’m sure you can come up with other ideas.  If you don’t actually want to give products, you can put together a basket of prizes (wrapped or unwrapped) and point them out as you present the calendar.

—  At your parties, set the calender up in your display.  Wear the “Pick a Date” button (B11513 or B15375) or allow your hostess to wear it, since getting bookings helps her earn more!  Mention that you will be passing the calendar around later in the demonstration and tell them you will remind them about the prizes during your demonstration. 

—  About 2/3 of the way through your demo, pass around the calendar and pen.  Have guests write their name, phone, and time of party on available dates.  This helps you to fill in the DATES YOU want to party!

—   Before the party, put a “Pick a date” sticker on every order form or catalog.  During the party, draw attention to it and suggest they write the date they have chosen by the sticker on their  order form.  When you are taking their order the sticker and date will remind you to ask them if they have a date in mind.  This helps you to remember to ask EVERY person to be a hostess.

This brings us to the FINAL step in keeping your DateBook full — ASK, ASK, ASK!
Think about it, if you don’t ASK the answer is already NO!  Sure, you might get some “no’s” along the way but when you are enthused and truly love what you do and love offering your products to people and sharing the benefits, you’ll get LOTS of YESes!

T9-03 – Make this Christmas Season MORE Profitable!

9-03---Christmas-Season-Profitable

Make the Christmas Season even MORE profitable!

I have had people tell me, “The Christmas season is the best, I don’t need your products.”

Yet when I’ve had other customers tell me, “Booster products have made such a TEMENDOUS difference in my business!  My bookings and recruit leads are up and my sales are soaring! Thanks to your products my party averages have DOUBLED!” it makes me wonder:

  • Wouldn’t you like your Christmas season to be even BETTER?
  • Wouldn’t you like to have MORE BOOKINGS? 
  • Wouldn’t you like to have MORE people at your parties?
  • Wouldn’t you like to have the people who attend your parties spend a little MORE? 
  • Wouldn’t you like to have MORE people asking you about your opportunity?

If you answered YES, you do want MORE, then I have a few simple ideas:

  1. Use stickers on your invitations and in your catalogs to plant booking seeds that will generate MORE bookings!
  2. Use stickers, postcards and other incentives to encourage your hosts to work a little harder on their party for MORE response.
  3. Use stickers on your invitations to get MORE people to come to your parties or shows.
  4. Use stickers in your catalogs to reminding customers of REASONS to buy which will boost your sales with each customer spending at least a little MORE!
  5. Set yourself apart with your customers by using stickers and postcards to let them know you appreciate them.  They’ll spend MORE at the party and even after the party! (Plus you’ll get more bookings!)
  6. Use stickers to plant seeds that suggest the benefits of joining your team.

You know we help you to do this ALL YEAR LONG …. our products make it easy!  If attendance and sales are up during the holiday shopping season, don’t you think that by using the same techniques that work the rest of the year that they would work during the Christmas season too?

Many customers over the 30 years we have been in business have told us Booster products DO help their Christmas sales to soar above and beyond where they were before.  Make your decision NOW to make the most of every opportunity this Christmas season!

You know this is your busiest time of year and it can also be even MORE PROFITABLE!

You are going to be busy anyway, why not make the most of every opportunity and turn $500 parties into $900 parties and more?
Why not get 3-4 bookings instead of 1-2? Why not have 15 customers in attendance instead of 5?

As the Christmas season is HERE, especially for those of you in the party plan business, it is important for you to still do that LITTLE THINGS that make a BIG difference!   So, we’ve developed products specifically to be used NOW.  Here are some detailed ideas:

  1. 1- GET your datebook filled!   We have an Christmas “Pick a Date & Pick a Prize” Erase Board to use at your parties.  If you currently don’t have any bookings where you will get bookings then use our Christmas “Booking” Postcards to send to previous hosts or customers and then follow up with phone calls.  Use the Christmas Booking stickers on your invitations and in your catalogs to plant seeds!

TIP:  Think about it, if someone receives an invitation but KNOWS she doesn’t have the money to buy anything, what are the chances of her coming?  But what if that invitation has a Christmas Booking sticker such as “No money for gifts under the tree? Just ask me how to get some Free! (PR91356) or “Need to fill stocking by the tree? Do it for Free! Just ask me!” (PR91533).  Would that person perhaps come to the party so she could see how she could get FREE products?  I’m told that bookings are down across the country, perhaps because the people who WANT to get FREE products are not even coming to the parties where they will be exposed to the fact that they could host a party to get free products.  By using the stickers on the INVITATIONS you are getting that information into the hands of those who are more likely to need it!

2- Take care of your hosts!  Encourage them to do what needs to be done.  You can dress up our normal Key 2 items with Christmas stickers! 

TIP: When you are sending your “Hand-written” thank you card (See Key 5 Postcards) after the party, fill out a “Christmas Card” at the same time while her information and your relationship is fresh on your mind.  You can add a more personal note this way.  See our selection of Christmas Postcards under KEY 9.

3- Encourage greater attendance at your holiday parties by using stickers on the invitation that remind them they have reasons to come and shop!  Slogans like “Your Christmas Gift Solution” or “Shop from your seat not on your feet. Bring your gift list. The longest gift list wins a prize!” (PR93174) are great.  Be sure to use a “Bring a Friend…” type too!  See Key 3 stickers!

4-  Use stickers in your catalogs to encourage them to BUY!  Stickers like How many weeks till Christmas??? (PR94315) or I can make your Christmas Great! Shop right now before it’s late!  (PR94415B) or even Buy it now and but it away! Bring it out on Christmas Day! (S900528) or one of my favorites: Don’t wait for the elf… shop for yourself! (S90580) are just a few to get you thinking.  You’ll love the variety on our website.

5- I’m sure you will meet people who “Need Christmas Cash!”  Be sure to get them thinking about what you have to offer by putting Recruiting Stickers on your invitations and throughout your catalogs.  We have a whole bunch to choose from.

TIP: Our customers tell us they put at least ONE sticker on every TWO pages of their catalogs.  WHY?  Because the stickers draw their eye to the products!  Wouldn’t you just love to say “Help Wanted … earn Christmas Cash!” over and over again at your parties until it sinks in?  Yes, I know you would, but you know you can’t, but when you use the stickers in your catalog you are reminding them over and over again but you don’t appear pushy!  You just let the stickers do the talking for you!  Use Booking, Recruiting, Customer Service and Sales stickers throughout your catalogs!  You’ll be pleasantly surprised at the overall response!  NOTE:  Does this mean you don’t need to SAY anything about these subjects?  NO, of course not, you’ll want to mention some of these slogans during your demo, it will reinforce the stickers.  The more senses involved the better!

I could go on and on giving you all kinds of examples, so I’ve created a “Christmas Mini Catalog” that shows almost ALL of our Holiday products and includes 4 pages of IDEAS of exactly how to use the different products.  Download it from our website under CATALOG or here is the direct link to download it.  http://www.thebooster.com/pdf/2011-Christmas_mini.pdf

In closing, I’d like to suggest that you TRY it!  We’ve been in business for 30 years and have helped over ONE MILLION Consultants.  We wouldn’t still be here if the concepts we teach and products we offer didn’t work.  They DO WORK!  Why not give it a try and see what it can do for your holiday sales?  Make a small investment in your future that has the potential to bring you BIG results!  We want to help you have your MOST PROFITABLE season ever!

Key 5A- Customer Service-Get Committed Customers

Key5A-Have Committed Customers- Say Thank YOU

Set yourself apart by thing the little things

KEY 5A:  Customer Service- Say Thank You!
Building relationships with your customers and hostesses creates loyalty and repeat business.

 “People don’t care how much you know, until they know how much you care — about them!”  

One of the greatest things about working a party plan or direct selling business is that you can work with, and get to know lots of people.  When you show  your customers that you care about them they will care about you and your business.  Many times your good customers become hostesses and your good hostesses become your team members.  So taking the time to let those “good customers” know you appreciate them is building relationships that builds your business!  But, do you know in advance which customers will become your GOOD customers?  No, so the trick is to treat EVERY customer as a GOOD customer and see what develops.

 “Treat every customer as if they sign your paycheck…because they do.”   — Unknown

“If YOU don’t take care of your customers, someone else will.” — Unknown

What constitutes good customer service?
Two people go into a fine restaurant. The food is as delicious as it is expensive. The meal takes nearly three hours.
A soccer mom pulls up to the drive-up window of a fast food burger joint. Running late, she is delighted that the line of cars moves swiftly. The entire process takes three minutes. The kids eat their food on the way to the game.

Of the two different restaurants – which had better customer service?  Each group was very happy with their experience, but if we had switched the restaurants, neither group would rate the customer service very high.

What constitutes good customer service is specific to each business and each individual. It is a function of the customer’s expectations. If customers expect products or services delivered quickly, then the faster the delivery, the better the service. If customers expect finer service and quality, then the person giving the service should focus on that.

To be effective at customer service an organization or person must manage two key areas of its operation effectively:

Ability—  Provide your customers with the products and services they want in a swift and efficient manner.

Attitude—  Have a courteous and helpful attitude to all you come in contact with.

Exceed expectations to win their hearts and business.

What are your customers’ expectations?
 
“Here is a simple but powerful rule – always give people more than what they expect to get.”       
– Nelson Boswell

Many customers come to a party expecting to be introduced to products, make their purchases, and after they receive their products in a timely manner they figure they may never hear from you again.  The trick in this business is to EXCEED THEIR EXPECTATIONS.

The first step is getting to know your customers.  Before each party get a copy of the guest list from your hostess. Bring that list with you on a clipboard.  Then, when guests start arriving you can greet them, get to know them, and make notes by their names so you can remember them and gear your service to meet their needs.

For example, if you sell makeup and skin care products you might greet a guest who immediately tells you “I don’t wear makeup.  I don’t have time for all that stuff.”  During your demo and your one-on-one time afterward you can point out the quick-and-easy skin care products and the long-term importance of it.  Or, maybe she doesn’t wear makeup because she doesn’t know how.  You could schedule a personalized make-over with her.  On the other hand, other guests may be used to using the most expensive products on the market.  Therefore, you can focus on pampering them, pointing out the luxurious higher-end products.

Most of all, exceed your guests expectations by keeping in touch with them and letting them know you look forward to helping them with all of their product needs.  Let them know you would love to give them more great ideas over time, keep them informed about special offers, and even help them pick out gifts they will need throughout the year.  Make them feel like they can call you for any personal need or any gift need and you’ll do the work to make it as easy, affordable, and timely as possible for them.

When your focus is to MEET THE NEEDS of your customers they will interpret that to mean you care about them as individuals not just dollar signs.  Let them know they are special to you.

Offer gift wrapping, custom decorating sessions, put them on mailing lists, call them when their favorite items are on sale, etc.  Do whatever you think they will appreciate and will win their hearts and their business.

“There are no traffic jams along the extra mile.”
– Roger Staubach

“Biggest question: Isn’t it really ‘customer helping’ rather than customer service? And wouldn’t you deliver better service if you thought of it that way?”- Jeffrey Gitomer

Keep in touch with your customers
 So many times we have parties, take the orders, deliver the products, and then focus on our upcoming hostesses.  But, what happens to all of those past guests and hostesses?  Many times we get busy and forget them and we find ourselves out “beating the brush” searching for new ones.  What is the value of a customer?  To GM’s Cadillac Division it is $426,000 for Pizza Hut it is $12,400. 

 Did you know…
•  The top 6% of cellular phone users represents 69% of the total usage.
•  The top 6% of the United Kingdom’s cola users represent 60% of its consumption.
•  25% of cars are rented by the top .02% of clients.

Add that “Special Touch” at a price you can afford!

Once you understand the concept of developing long-term relationships with your customers, you may wonder how to get started doing it.  The Booster makes LOTS of products to make it easy. 

Here are a few ideas.

1)  Let your customers know that you appreciate them as a person, and as a customer.  Put stickers like “Thank you for your order” (S50223), “I value your business and loyalty” (S50433), and “I really appreciate your business” (S50500) on their order forms or the products you deliver.

2)  Frequently send customers and hostesses sale flyers.  Inform them of special offers, new products, benefits of joining your team, and keep your name, products, and services fresh in their minds.  Use stickers like “Customers like you make my day” (S51464) and “I value your business and loyalty” (S50433 or PSA5206) to seal envelopes and flyers.  The printable stickers are also great mailing labels and return address labels or put them on magnets and give them to your customers to put on their fridge.

3)  Send thank you notes, and Christmas cards. 
 Send notes to hostesses, customers, etc.  Included in your keypack are a variety of Thank You and Christmas cards.  Key 2 Postcards are also great to use for hostesses “Thank You’s” as well as Key 5.) Remember, a handwritten note is always appreciated.   Your goal is to create loyalty by setting yourself apart from others they may do business with.
HINT:  Fill out the Christmas card at the same time as you do the Thank You card. It will make it more personal as you’ve just worked with her. Then when the busy Chrismas Season comes, you are all done!

4) Send the “Birthday” Printable Postcards (PP40545 with our text or purchase them without text and print whatever you want using our FREE templates) to your customers who are having  birthdays that month.  Then, follow up with a phone call to see if you can help them with anything.  Offer them a certain percentage or dollar amount off any order placed during their birthday month.

5) Stick the “To reorder…” stickers PSM4501 printed with YOUR info ) directly on the bottom of the products that customers will use up and need to reorder.  Point it out and tell them something like “I’ve included my phone number and email address on the bottom of this product, (candle, makeup, mix, etc.) so when it’s running low, you can EASILY contact me for more.”

6)  Use stickers on free gifts (S51114 or S50282) so they know you’ve given them something extra!

7)  Use Printable stickers or the “Save this receipt for your guarantee” (S50382) to remind customers about free samples and guarantees!

8)  Let your customers know that you look forward to helping them again.  Put stickers like  “Call me anytime to place an order” (S40247 or S47008) on their receipts.  They’ll know that you’d love to help them again, and they are welcome to call you anytime.

9)  When someone books a party, immediately give them an “I’m so excited to work with you bookmark” (BM52609).  It will make them feel special and get excited for the party too.  Print your contact info on the “I value your business and loyalty!” printable sticker and put it on the back of the bookmark, catalogs, hostess information, etc.  Follow up with Bookmarks like “Thank you-Value Business (BM52610) or “I’m so excited to work with you.” for your customers.
 
10)  Treat every customer with respect and be sincere!  You can even WRITE little notes on the bookmarks or printable stickers and put them on the outside of envelopes, on invoices, etc. to add a personal touch!

Put this TEAM CARD “If YOU don’t take care of your customers,someone else will.” up in your home.  Put it by your computer, or on the fridge!  Every time you read it  ask yourself the question, “So what am I doing for my customer?”  Even if it is just as simple as droping them a card, making a quick phone call, putting a sticker on your order forms, or any of the other suggestions we’ve given you, they DO make a difference and help to set you apart!  These little things are the special touch that make a BIG difference.

What to do about “problems” with customers.

After you’ve done your best when working with a customer, you may find that you’ve made a mistake.  That’s OK.  We all make mistakes.  Just admit it to your customers.  If you mess up on an order and need to fix it, send that customer an apology note with the correct product.  They’ll appreciate that you are taking responsibility and doing your best to make things right.  Put an “Oops” sticker (PR50527) on the note. (Or use the Oops Postcard PP58209G.)
 
“Once we realize that imperfect understanding is the human condition, there is no shame in being wrong, only in failing to correct our mistakes.”                           —- George Soros

Great customer service is about making people happy, but the fact of the matter is that there are some people – luckily very few – who will never be happy, no matter what you or anyone else does. They take special pleasure in making sure that your costs are as high as possible. They demand premium service but refuse to pay anything more than bargain basement prices.

These are not customers. Customers are those people who contribute to your bottom line. If someone cannot sleep at night because he thinks you may have made a profit by doing business with him, then that person is not a customer; he is a distraction. Worse, these are usually the same folks who take delight in abusing relationships.

Companies spend far too much time trying to please people who just can’t be pleased. They become distracted by the “squeaky wheels,” while effectively ignoring the silent few who are responsible for driving bottom line performance. All of this they do in the name of customer service.

Instead of spending time, money, and effort on the squeaky wheels, wouldn’t it be more profitable to focus on improving service to people who will appreciate it? People who will therefore buy more? People who are honestly glad to see you succeed?

World class customer service doesn’t mean you have to make everyone happy, just your true customers. It’s OK to send the distractions to your competition; just make sure you’ve done your best, and do it politely.

Welcome, I’m Jenny B

Hi, I'm Jenny B, Welcome to The Booster

Hi, I’m Jenny B, Welcome to The Booster

Hello!  I’d like to welcome you to the official BLOG for “The Booster – Jenny B”

This year (2019) we are celebrating 38 years of helping people like you, who are in the Party Plan or Direct Sales Professions to Boost Your Businesses!  We have helped over ONE MILLION consultants and the most common testimonial we receive is,  “I am absolutely AMAZED what a 2¢ sticker can do for my business!”

As I post different training in this blog I’ll be referring to a few of the HUNDREDS of testimonials from our customers.  You are more than welcome to add YOURS to the list by commenting on this blog.  We all LOVE hearing YOUR success stories.

Now, please let me take just a minute and tell you what The Booster is all about.

During our 38 years in business we have developed over 2000 products which are “The “little things” that make a BIG difference to your business!”

My business concepts come from my grandfather who during the depression years had a nanny, gardener, housekeeper and whoever else he could hire to give people jobs. You see, he said, “Sales is King!” in that those in sales are really what makes the economy go around. He, who had come to America before WW1 with only a few dollars in his pocket eventually became a salesman and developed one of the top vacuum cleaner sales organizations in the United States.

He built that business based on two principles:
1. People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care about them.
2. Sell the sizzle not the steak! (Which means to share with your customers WHY they need your products and how they will impact their lives.

In 1981, after being top sales in the state of Utah in a party plan company I had joined, I had an opportunity and filled a need to offer products to those in the party plan/direct sales industry that make it easy to apply my grandfathers’ principles. These products have proven to help hundreds of thousands of our customers to Boost their Businesses

The Booster offers stickers, postcards, buttons and more that are developed especially for you. We offer products to help you do the things the “BIG” companies do, yet personalize them for your small company (within your big company.)

In 1996 we divided our products into the “Key Areas of your Business” to help you to focus and be more successful in each of those areas. As you browse through our website and this blog you will find the products and training are divided by those keys. We call them the “Keys to Success!”  See if this doesn’t sound like what you want to have happen in your business (in a nutshell):

Key 1: Get Bookings Booming
Key 2: Have Happy Hosts
Key 3: Attract Greater Attendance
Key 4: Get Sales Soaring
Key 5: Have Committed Customers
Key 6: Have Raving Recruits
Key 7: Motivate & Inspire
Key 8: Recognize & Reward
Key 9: Have Seasonal Success!

Then, in order to help you apply each of those keys to EVERY party/show we developed the “10 Steps to Successful Parties System.” This system helps you to integrate each KEY into every party or show to become as successful as you can be.  Our “Success System Dividers” V1003 offer this training and help you get organized.

And, YES, we offer you products to purchase to implement the ideas we teach. It is so much more effective to spend a few pennies to encourage people to attend your parties than the cost of only a few attending. We offer the TOOLS you can use to build your business. If you were trying to build a house, would you want to do it without hammer and nails? Would you rather use a hand screw driver or an electric one? Booster products make that kind of an impact that power tools make to the carpenter! Read some of the testimonials and reviews of products on our website.

Our products are now listed in our shop on ETSY.   You can click the SHOP FOR BOOSTER PRODUCTS link at the top of the BLOG or the direct link is

https://www.etsy.com/shop/TheBoosterJennyB

TheBooster.com  now goes to this blog.

We have divided The Booster products on the ETSY site by the KEY they are designed to help you with.  Obviously, some products are effective in multiple keys of your business but they will only be shown in 1 category or KEY.  This is the FIRST number of the item as well.

Click on any of the products in the KEYS/CATEGORIES.  Click the different categories HERE in the BLOG for simple training about using stickers on your invitations to boost your attendance, bookings and recruit leads!  Each of our Blogs will link to KEYS/CATEGORIES of products on our website to make it easy for you to apply the principles we teach.

We keep our prices so affordable you can’t afford to NOT use our products!

So, welcome to The Booster! Please, check back often for all kinds of training to Boost your Business.  Soon there will be Audios and Videos to go along with many of the posts.  With this training you will learn how to use these tools to build a thriving business. Browse through the products and think about how they can impact your business.

Sincerely, Jenny B

We are gradually getting items up on the ETSY site.  If something you want is not there, you can call us at 800-553-6692 or 435-245-6088 and leave a message if we are not available.  You can then place an order by phone.

Simple Steps to Great Success! Have Happier Hosts!

K-Host-T Pack to have happy hosts

Use these postcards and stickers to easily apply these simple steps!

If you are reading this, I assume your
goal is great success!

If you want to be successful the ONE key area that YOU can have the greatest influence upon, and will make the most difference, is your relationship with your host. This relationship is built upon your doing some simple things that set you apart in helping her be successful.

There are lots of excuses for not following up, but when you take it upon yourself to follow up and follow thru it will mean success to you!

I will briefly list the Steps to Success and show you a few products that make doing the steps easier. If you want more information, please check out the additional training on our website (and blog) or join our Key Pack Club.

  1. Give the host packet! Hopefully you come prepared to each party with the host packet filled with the information she needs. This mentally prepares you to get the bookings and she goes home prepared to be successful. (To make a great impression, put it all together in our Host Folders! V2670)
  2. Send a confirmation “Thank You” postcard. Keep confirmation postcards all ready to go in your car. After the party, fill it out and drop it in the mail on your way home. This makes a HUGE impression and shows you are on the ball and prepared to help her be successful. (Remind her you are “Watching for her guest list!”)  See Key 2 Postcards.
  3. After getting the guest list, prepare the invitations (Be sure to use the FOUR stickers on every invitation. One for Booking, one for Recruiting, a “Bring a Friend” reminder and a “Having Fun or Company Specific”. Remember, if only a third come to the party you at least want to be planting booking and recruiting seeds with all the rest! (See the K-Invite Pack online or Blog under Key 3 for more details.)
  4. Send a note to let her know her invitations have been mailed. She will feel confident you are doing your part and she will be even more excited. Remind her “Your Wish List Free is my goal for you and me!” with the new sticker PR20854!
  5. Send her a “Please Call your Guests” type of phone call reminder postcard  (See Key 2 Postcards.)
     so she gets it a couple of days before her party. Those calls make a HUGE impact. Do the “5 Sticker Game” on the invitations as an added incentive for her to make the calls. (See LS2259 for details.)
  6. Call her for last minute information, to give encouragement, see how many guests are coming, etc. This call sets her mind at rest and helps her feel even more confident.
  7. As part of this step, prepare everything at home for the party. Get your demo items together, prepare the Recruiting Dollars (V6658), prepare a booking game (See the Spring Fling Board), prepare what games you’ll play, have the prizes ready, have guest folders ready with “stickered” catalogs, order forms, pens with “PenPal” stickers, and other info each guest needs. Be sure to have Host Packets and Recruit packets ready. Then, be sure you have what you need for a smooth check out procedure. This preparation will set YOUR mind at rest and you’ll feel more confident and ready to go!
  8. Go do your event! Get there early (but not too early) so set up goes smooth and you have time to connect with your host. Be sure to take your “guest list” on a clipboard so you can greet the guests and get to know them while checking their names on your list! Have a good time, be enthusiastic and relaxed! Care about the people you meet. Your goal should be to find out what their needs are and meet them.  (See the BLOG post about how to use your guestlist under Key 2.) 
  9. Take a few minutes after the party is over to go over the orders and compare them to the guest list. Be excited with your host and remind her that “If you call them they will order!” (PR20309) This applies to those who came and did not order and others who were interested but didn’t come. Challenge her to follow up on everything she can do to earn additional “circles” on her Preferred Hostess Card! (BC2607)  Reinforce that this is a WIN WIN for both of you!
  10. Follow up on any calls YOU need to make to her or guests.
  11. Get with her by phone or in person on the specified date to get the final orders, collect all money and close the party. Help her decide how best to get all the things on her Wish List that she wants.
  12. Place your order. Be sure to take advantage of specials your company is offering. Be aware of where YOU are in your monthly sales to benefit from all incentives.
  13. Do any additional follow up that may be necessary. This includes delivering any orders, etc.
  14. Send a hand written “Thank You” to your host. She helped you and deserves the hand written touch. Include a little thank you like the “Hostess Magnet” (PSB2305) or Bookmark (BM22602 or BM22603).

By DOING all these steps you will make an impression on your host that will set you apart!

She will want to party with you again and again. You’ll be building a relationship that will be beneficial to BOTH of you over time.

These steps don’t take much time (average 30 minutes per party). They just take consistency!

You need a plan to make it EASY to keep track of where you are on the list for every host! Keep our “Steps to Success” erase board (EB2128) on your fridge and mark it off as you do each step.
Remember, it is not what you CAN DO and CAN’T DO… It is what you WILL DO and WON’T DO that makes you Successful!

Start NOW to take these simple steps and watch your business soar!

 Success Steps Erase Board
Cheryl Thomas – Schenectady,NY   (Tuesday, June 10, 2008)

The Success Steps Erase Board is a must for anyone in the party plan business. I’m the mother of 3 children and work full-time out of the home so I have to stay organized. I was always forgetting some ‘ingredient’ to the successful ‘recipe’ of a home show. Now I never miss a step thanks to your awesome erase board! It stays right on my refrigerator and with one quick glance I can see what needs to be done!Thank-you Jenny B!

 Success Steps!
Holly Moore – Litchfield Park   (Tuesday, June 10, 2008)

I LOVE my ‘It’s Success Steps!’ erase board. It is so easy to look there (on my fridge) and be in contact with my hostesses as I am doing other things throughout my day.

I can’t wait to order the family goal planning board, too!

 
  Erase Boards
Angie – Appleton, WI   (Monday, January 28, 2008)

I really like my erase board!! This helps me keep track of what’s going on with my home business while I also have my full time job. With just a glance this board is great for helping me keep track of what I have done for each of my hostesses.

 
  Success Steps Board
Michelene Sheppard – Bridgeport   (Friday, April 13, 2007)

The Success Steps Erase Board is the best organizational tool. I keep track of what I have left to do and have already done for my hostesses so much better! It really helps since you increase the number of shows you’re holding with all the other products!

 
  Hostess Coaching
Kimber Boshers – Pulaski, TN   (Saturday, March 04, 2006)

I love these Erase Boards. They make (proper) hostess coaching a no-brainer. The board leads me through exactly what I need to be doing for my hostess and in what order. It’s just great!

WHY should you put 4 stickers on every invitation?

K-Invite Pack

Boost not only your attendance but your bookings and recruits when you use 4 stickers on every invitation.

I’ve done this training at conference many times.  Let me share with you what happens…

Here is AUDIO you can listen instead of read!  Jenny B shares what a difference the stickers on your invitations can make!  (Right click and SAVE to your own computer to listen on your ipod!  Or just click to open in a new window and listen on your computer!
T3-K-invite-FOUR-stickers

Most times I ask this question, people laugh and say, “Jenny, you want to make money!” and I reply, “Well, yes when you purchase stickers I do make money, but what is MORE IMPORTANT is that YOU make EVEN MORE money!”

First I ask: How many invitations do you send to a party?   (The average is usually 30)

Then I ask: How many people come?   (Average is 8 — but customers who regularly use Booster products average is 12!)

Then I ask: How many people are learning that you have both booking and recruiting opportunities to offer?   As people think about it they realize only the 8 attending the party or show are learning that they have opportunities!

I then ask: How many are NOT learning that you have opportunities?   I can see the lights go on when people realize that 22 people they are sending invitations to are not getting the opportunity to learn that they could earn FREE products or a great income.

 So, how do you solve this problem?  

When you put both a booking and recruiting sticker on EVERY invitation, you are at least planting seeds with EVERYONE!

Do you know in advance when a seed will land on fertile soil?

Why waste opportunities?   You have that person’s undivided attention for 30 seconds to 1 minute.   Why not plant seeds?   Another advantage is that every time they read one of the stickers, they think about the invitation again and again.   This helps to plant the information into their long term memory.

I then share with them the A B C D formula. So I will share it now with you….

A = A success formula.

B = Benefit.   If the BENEFIT is greater than the

C= COST

D= DO IT!

Does that make sense to you?   That if the Benefit is greater than the Cost to DO it?

Let’s do the math.   It COSTS an average of 50¢ to put a “Bring a friend, receive a free gift” type of sticker on 30 invitations. (Average cost for stickers is about 2¢ each)   If just ONE person brings ONE friend and that friend spends $40, how much do you make?   (With a 25% commission you would make $10.)

So, is the BENEFIT of $10 worth spending 50¢?   If it is, you should DO IT!

Then think of the additional benefits of:

  1. TWO friends coming to the party
  2. the original guest coming because she could bring a friend (or she wouldn’t have come) and she spends $40+
  3. or one of those friends booking a show and starting a party chain in a new neighborhood.
  4. You meet your next new recruit in that new part chain.
  5. The list of possibilities goes on and on!

I can’t guaranteed what WILL happen, but I can guarantee that you WILL MISS 100% of the opportunities you don’t take!

  • At this time of economic slowing can you afford to MISS someone who is looking to EARN free products and will be a hostess for you?
  • Can you afford to MISS that person who is looking for an extra income?
  •  Can you afford to MISS the person who would have come to the party and brought that friend?
  • What is the risk? $2.00 per party!
  • How much do you LOSE if you don’t give it a try? $10, $20, $50 or $100 in PROFIT per party? Bookings? New Recruits?
  • Every day you wait you’re losing opportunities!
  • Do you really want to see your business be more successful? Give it a try! ORDER TODAY!
  • Do you know where would your “Break Even” point be for this concept?
  • You would have to put “Bring a friend” stickers on invitations for 10 parties and ONLY ONE person bring a friend before you would begin to go in the hole!

So, it is time for YOU to make the decision.   Do YOU want to have a more successful business?   Stickers REALLY DO make a BIG difference and with our system dividers (V1003) make it is so easy keep your stickers organized and follow the “Steps to Success!”

So let’s clarify what the FOUR stickers on every invitation should be:
1- A Key 1 Booking Sticker
2- A Key 6 Recruiting Sticker
3- A Key 3 Attendance “Bring a Friend” type sticker
4- A Key 3 Attendance “Having Fun” type sticker or a more company specific sticker telling something about your type of products.

See the K-INVITE Pack!  It gives you 8 sheets of stickers for your invitations.  There is enough to put 4 stickers on each of 140 invitations.

You’ll receive 2 COMBO sheets of Booking Stickers, 2 COMBO sheets of Recruiting stickers and FOUR sheets of Attendance type stickers.

Place your order TODAY and get started watching your business grow!

Here are a few FIVE STAR testimonials that were posted on our old website:

   Jenny B Stickers will change your business…
Ann Langdon – Tucson, AZ (Sunday, June 29, 2008)

I have been using Jenny B stickers for a little over a year now. I have the full binder of stickers and I use them all!

Stickers go in my catalogs, on my invitations, in my hostess packets, and on my recruiting folders.

I mail post cards to potential recruits, Hostesses, and customers when they show an interest in my business.

I won the company trip to Hawaii last year and I don’t think I would have done so well with my sales and recruiting if it were not for the stickers I put on my invitations.

Let me give you a recent example of what the ‘bring a friend’ sticker has done for me. I place these stickers on EVERY invitation I send.

In February I went and did a ‘New Start’ show. (A new team member coming into the business) When I was done and writing up orders a guest walked up and told me she had come with her mom because of the sticker that said her mom would get a free gift. This guest booked a show and asked me about my business.

I gave her a recruiting packet to go home and review. She called me 3 days later and signed up! She was so excited she did not even wait for her show she went out to my website and ordered in her starter case! That was in February.

She has continually been in the top 1 or 2 in sales in my Unit, and has even beat my Division manager in sales once or twice! OH and did I mention that the first thing she did was order her Jenny B stickers for her invitations! She knows the value!

Just think, if I had not put that sticker on that invitation she would not have come and I would have never signed up this great recruit!

You just never know what a sticker could do for you but, I can guarantee you that ONE sticker has paid for EVERY Jenny B item I have ever bought and then some! Thank you Jenny B! I would not be where I am today without you!

I recently started using your stickers on all my invitations, as well as the preprinted Hostess Coaching cards.
They save me time and have such a colorful presentation.  I do believe the stickers help draw attention to the invite and I can tell everyone about the business opportunity, not just those attending. I use the RSVP on Everything!

   It is working for me TOO!
Michelle – Beaverton, OR

Well, I have read all the testimonials on how these products have ‘boosted’ others sales. AND, I have to say, I think it is working for me TOO! I have been using stickers on all my invites and in my catalogs for several months now, and ironically, my average guests order has gone from about $40-50 per guest….to about $70!! I am very impressed!!

 Truly AMAZING!!!
Tiffaney Kelley, Coppell, TX

I am a Slumber Parties distributor and I have to admit adding the stickers to the back of my invitations have helped increase attendance. I have more people showing up to my parties and it’s amazing!!! I am looking forward to placing my next order so that I can increase my recruiting efforts as well. Thank You so much to the Booster! Jenny B is truly AMAZING!!!

  Increased party sales

I must say that I have been following the 4 stickers on the invitation and it has increased my attendance, gotten the guests there on time (which was a huge problem in my business!), many guests brought a friend, and ultimately has increased party sales!! Kat Quarterman NJ

   Bring a friend
Melissa Barrett – Scottsdale, AZ   (Monday, November 03, 2008)

I just wanted to tell everyone what a HUGE differnce it has made in my business to add the ‘bring a friend and receive a free gift’ sticker to my invites. My parties have doubled in size which in turn has double my earnings!

Great value!
Honey Saylor – Atlanta, GA   (Monday, April 02, 2007)

I purchased two of these packs already. They are a great value and perfect because they cover many of the areas. The stickers are high quality and even the ones that I didn’t think I’d use – I found myself using. Wonderful to start your guests thinking about your business and the gifts they could recieve by hosting!

Your’e A Winner
Wendy M. Lewis – Chicago   (Monday, May 22, 2006)

I have been in direct sales for 6yrs. I have been ordering stickers for a year now. My attendance has increased. I use the “You’re a winner” stickers and the guest always hands me there invites along with placing a order. I also wear the button “I love my job ask me why” I have picked up recurits every where I go. I have that button on and it never fails anyone that have contact with me ask why do you love your job. I cannot count how parties have been booked from that button. Jenny, I have to admit that putting your stickers on my invites and on my catalogs and just everything has made my business grow.  I just want to say thank you. Also the telephone calls from your staff make my day.

Stickers

I love the looks of these stickers and I love the fact that they jump out at you when you see them on catalogs, invites and flyers. I’m so glad my leader gave me the name of this website.
Keep up the great work!!

I placed my first order with the booster and received it the other day – I LOVED everything! It was better then Christmas! I really look forward to using all of the items I got. I really believe in these products and love reading all the helpful hints and tips on the website. I couldn’t sleep the night I got my order – I was too busy coming up with all kinds of ideas on how to use the items I got. It was exciting. I am building a downline and will be referring EVERYONE I recruit to use the Booster products! They are awesome and I really believe that utilizing these products will definately BOOST my business! Thanks a bunch! You guys are great!!

K-INVITE STICKERS
Lenore Wossidlo – Pittsburgh, PA   (Sunday, March 05, 2006)

I have been in direct sales for 11 years, and I just started using stickers on my invitations on a REGULAR basis. At my last party in February, we had low attendance, even though the hostess and I did all the right coaching, etc. etc. But the party ended up at over $500 and one person joined. I truly believe that all the stickers on the invitation made a difference because when we made the reminder calls, people ‘remembered’ our invitation.

Sticker
Mindy – Keflavik Iceland   (Sunday, March 05, 2006)

I love the booster stickers, because I can promote my business without even saying anything verbally, it’s all on the sticker. Since using booster, I have more than tripled my business and recruiting. I went from having about $600 in sales and no consultants every month to over $4000 and 3 Consultants signing each month. Booster stickers really help. Thank you Booster.

4 Stickers per invitation
Kimber Boshers – Pulaski, TN   (Saturday, March 04, 2006)

I have been with my direct sales company for 4 years and, after getting off to a GREAT start in 2006, I decided to track back through the years and see what progress I’ve made. I discovered that in previous years my highest January sales fell under $500 and my highest February sales were just over $800. In 2006, I had over $2600 for each of those months!!! I didn’t hold more shows, I simply had much higher attendance and a better prepared hostess!! I encourage everyone on my team to use those 4 stickers per invitation AND implement the Host Follow Up Erase board… they’ll make a HUGE difference.
