Tips from the Top--HOSTESS COACHING!

I think this is something we all need so I wanted to share what I learned from Amy and other top leaders and things I need to make sure I do for EVERY HOSTESS AND EVERY SHOW!!

1. Set up the trunk show in the system AS SOON AS THE DATE IS SET and send the confirmation email to the hostess!!!

2. Make a Hostess Packet for them and drop it off to them if they are local--if not local send in the mail! Include:
--catalogs
--minis
--PAPER INVITES (if she will use them)
--Customer Order Forms (for her to gather 3 or more outsider orders BEFORE THE SHOW!)
--Hostess Order Form (For her to make her "I WANT IT FREE WISH LIST!!!")
--A PERSONAL NOTE!!!! Telling her what to do-how it works and giving her a hostess challenge of getting 3 outside orders before her show and maybe giving her a little prize if she does

3. SEE HER IN PERSON!!! If she is local get together with her at her house or for coffee to help her go over her INVITE LIST and tell her how it all works!!! and look with her at the catalog or bring some jewels to get her EXCITED AND MOTIVATED!!!!

4. CHECK IN WITH HER EVERY WEEK!

5. USE EVERY AVENUE FOR INVITES!!! Text, Email (using Stella and Dot system) FB invite--cover all your bases!!

6. TELL HER TO MAKE HER WISHLIST!!! Even let her come see the jewels ahead of time--NOTHING IS BETTER THAN A MOTIVATED AND EXCITED HOSTESS!!!

7. Tell her to wear a solid color shirt and use her at the show to MODEL PIECES!!! This will get ladies talking about them and I promise it will UP YOUR SALES!!

8. Let her be your ALLY!!! Let her style ladies at the show--tell her to work it just like you are and tell her to be involved! (And BONUS---this could be a great way to start a conversation with her about being a STYLIST!!)
