Encouragement!

Each Trunk Show Builds Your Business!!!



OFFER A TRUNK SHOW TO EVERY GUEST:

From Star Stylist, Lindsay Oehmen - Any trunk show where you're in front of someone is a GOOD TRUNK SHOW! They all further your business. I had a $280 trunk show with three guests, one became a Stylist and two booked trunk shows. The important thing is to book and prospect by habit - ask everyone! I tell every guest that I'd love to do a trunk show for them. You don't want anyone to feel left out!


YOU NEVER KNOW WHO YOUR NEXT STYLIST WILL BE:

From Star Stylist, Nirah Velleneuve - I had a trunk show booked with a hostess who was expecting a larger turnout. She called me a couple of days before to explain that it was going to be very small and asked if we should postpone or cancel. I told her that I love all trunk shows big AND small, and we would still have a great time. While driving there, I actually asked myself if it was going to be worth it - but it sure was! There were only five guests, but it was a fantastic trunk show! It didn't have high sales, but I was able to spend more time with each customer, and really help with their personal styling. It was very casual and fun, and I had a lot of time to chat with each person - two signed up to be Stylists! Those two are now part of my team and I adore them!


SHARE YOUR PASSION:

From Star Stylist, Laura Alexander: I had one trunk show where I worked with the hostess to improve attendance, but only three guests were able to attend. The hostess considered cancelling, but I told her, "Let's just have fun with out intimate group." Because you never know! Well, those three guests LOVED the jewelry and booked two more shows. The other woman took a Lookbook to work, and she picked up three more orders. When I told the hostess that she did, in fact, earn Style Rewards, she told me she wanted to become a Stylist! Although she decided to wait until after her summer wedding, she just booked another show with me for June. It goes to show, never give up, take any opportunity to share your passion and fabulous accessories. Good things will happen!

THINK OUTSIDE OF THE BOX PEOPLE!!!

If you don't have a lot of Holiday Trunk Shows booked - then try something new!!!

I am partnering with Bella Mia on December 3rd and she is going to close her restaurant to the public for the evening.
