This was a questions posed by one of our readers and I thought it would be a great one for discussion. I do take a "serious" approach when I am booking, I guess I have been doing this so long, I must have a certain confidence level and I basically schedule the appointment. I give a little "appointment" card when I make the date. I stay in touch and confirm the appointment and make sure it is still convenient with the hostess, maybe not the best approach but I would rather have her reschedule than stand me up. I do call and double check a few days before the appointment to see how many are attending and tell the hostess - it is to make sure I have enough trays and supplies. (Sometime I preprofile, other times I give the hostess the profile cards and have her get them filled out for me). If she says that she just can't get anyone to attend, I let her know that she is still important and I would still be happy to have just the facial/moveover with her and then at a later date perhaps the show would work for her, very often by the time I arrive after telling her I will still come just for her, there is more attending.
Depending on the hostess program I am using (I use several different ones, depending on my mood, what the hostess is looking to get out of the show, or what helps the hostesses earn the most) but I have one that is from the olden MK days when the hostesses earned points and the points converted to $'s in product. The hostess earns 50 points simply for holding her appointment on the original date - seriously i think this is one of the best approaches I used because the hostesses really like earning those points.
Where I was living before, my home was more accessible than where I am now and I also offered 50 points if the hostess wanted to hold her show at my home. Many hostesses loved this because they didn't have to clean, inconvenience their family, and got away from their craziness- it worked for me because I didn't have to pack everything and when I was done if I was tired, I could just leave everything and clean it up the next day.
Okay, let's keep this conversations going
