Bookings – The Lifeline of Your Direct Sales Business

The appointments you make for future home parties are called bookings. Mastering the art of booking is the greatest gift you can give yourself. Bookings are the lifeline of your direct sales business because they ensure sales, income and business for years to come. Make it an important goal to learn how to effectively ask for bookings. Once you learn this, your schedule will remain full and your business will continue to grow.

Booking Your First Parties

Your first and most important party is your Grand Opening. By now you have set a date for your Grand Opening and are working toward its success. Don’t stop now!

To get your business off to a quick and profitable start, you must also schedule additional parties that will be held during your first weeks in business.

New consultants should schedule 8 parties (which includes your Grand Opening) within eight weeks of signing up. Experience has shown that this is the best way to become comfortable with your presentation, and begin earning a substantial income right away. When you hold numerous parties you increase the likelihood of achieving your Fast Start goals.

Why Hold Parties?

Parties are an important part of your business building strategy because:

  • They are the primary source of sales, new customers, future party dates and potential team members.
  • They give you the opportunity to introduce new groups of people to the joy of your beautiful products.
  • They are the learning ground where you can fine-tune your sales, booking and sponsoring skills, which are essential to your long-term success.

The party is important to others because it will help them:

  • Enjoy a unique and fun way to entertain friends and family.
  • Have an opportunity to purchase your beautiful product.
  • Give guests the opportunity to learn how they can earn free product by hosting a  home party of their own.

Remember, you have something great to offer! Feel proud to offer such a unique and valuable experience to your Hostesses and guests. When you are proud and excited about all you have to offer, you will lay the foundation for your booking success.
