8 QUICK TIPS TO MAXIMIZE YOUR S&D BUSINESS THIS HOLIDAY SEASON
#1 Pay attention to 12 days of Stella!
Home Office is giving us everything we need to get back on track after crazy November—they are laying it out for us! Check the daily emails arriving in your inbox
#2 Print out 2242 again.
CONSISTENCY is key in this business! Can you imagine if you made 2 contacts a day to move your business forward where you would be this time next year! Print out your 2242 tracker found in the lounge or on our Team FB page.
# 3 Book in Tight
Keep calling and reaching out. Who to reach out to? Ladies who said not in fall, all past customers (do a customer care call to check in their deliveries).
#4 Schedule your Holiday open house
Remember- stylist may collect the Hostess rewards on 2 DOUBLE DIP shows a CALENDAR year. That is TWICE a CALENDAR year-- not two times during your anniversary year!
Plan an Open house at your home! Maybe offer raffle prize for all who shop … invite via INVITE system, email to customer database, social media, red stamp invites around neighborhood, co-workers, etc.
See an example of this with Gina Bogda’s flyer here: https://www.smore.com/apb12-gina-s-stella-dot-open-house
#5 Corporate gifting
Who needs buy gifts...your dentist, pediatrician, real estate agent, etc. Are you offering this shopping service?
#6 Personal shopping appointments
Be that Holiday Helper by setting up a couple hours where you can offer personal shopping appointments.
# 7 Stay joyful and share it
Wear all through holidays, be loud and proud...offer gifting, etc. Carry that tote of jewels around, look books in your bad and be ready to offer your services. Opportunities are EVERYWHERE for booking and sponsoring!
# 8 Office Trunk shows
BLING in the BREAKROOM. Think office shows. Requires no lead time!
Who do you know that works in a office? Teacher with teacher's lounge? Nurse with break room?
This is your business, it works when you do! Take one of these ideas that resonate with you and put it into action, and watch your business grow!
**TEAM BOOKING BLITZ HAPPENING NOW!!!!!!** Book Dec and Jan shows to be entered to win our new Getaway bag!
**TEAM BOOKING BLITZ HAPPENING NOW!!!!!!**
ALL NEW DEC SHOWS BOOKED TODAY THRU SUNDAY GET AN EXTRA ENTRY INTO DRAW FOR GETAWAY BAG!!!
Booking Blitz is in effect!! You know all those customers who have shopped with you over the last few days!?! Offer them a trunk show in December! Don't think about it just do it!! Let's book up December baby!!
Who is loving their S&D Biz right now!? In our busiest, best and biggest selling month of the year!! And who loves this new Getaway coming in our Spring Collection!?! Well let's combine the two and have some FUN, and keep our crazy insane team momentum going, by launching a BOOKING BLITZ right now, where someone will win this GORGEOUS NEW BAG!! I
I love what I do and I can tell you guys do too! So let's keep our passion and love for our business going by offering trunk shows NOW!
Not only are we going to be selling on the go to our customers with the Black Friday sale, and styling at all our trunk shows this weekend as we close out the month, but we are going to be chatting with SO Many women over the next 5 days that we have to remember to BOOK!
This is the core of our business, the in-home trunk show, and having been through a December and January or two...TRUST me when I say we need to be booking NOW to keep our momentum going!! And those who promote this month and earn promotion bonuses, you have a second time promotion bonus sitting on the table for you waiting to be gifted to you (and your fabulous upline!) in December for hitting your pay rank a second time in a row! If there were ever two months to hit pay rank back to back it is Nov and Dec! And to do that you will need to have trunk shows booked, and so will your team!
I can tell you from experience that RIGHT NOW is the time to book up not only your December BUT your JANUARY as well!! The first 3 weeks of December are 3 of the highest SALES Week of our entire year! You want to be in front of WOMEN who are shopping at trunk shows and pop up shops!! So we will offer Dec dates first! If they say NO to December, then Book a January date now, and get it booked in the system and send your January hostess a little something ( a card, a retired piece of jewelry from your samples, something that helps stick that January date, remember booking trunk shows and hostess coaching is like dating, you want to court your hostess!)
WORDS TO SAY:
POST FOR FB WALL: Looking for Holiday Helpers! I'm looking for a few friends to wear my samples for free. I give/send you a tote of jewelry and you share it at work, with friends, at school, church, the gym...you get the idea! Share everywhere!! Simply invite others to check out the line. Your friends can shop for their loved ones and find perfect pieces for their holiday outfits, and you will receive free jewelry as a reward for sharing! Comment here if you're interested and I'll send you the deets!!
WTS FOR CUSTOMER THANK YOU: Thank you so much for your order and for supporting my business!! This is such a great time of year where so many women are shopping right now for the holidays! Why don't we gather a few girlfriends together with some wine (or a cookie exchange!) and let them shop Stella & Dot, and you can collect some hostess rewards?! I have Dec 9th or 10th available, what do you think?!
****I booked TWO in- home trunk shows for next week, the first week of Dec with this post - as when people posted they were interested, I called them to explain they could be a host-on-the go and collect orders or we could just do an in person show which is way more fun, and they can see their friends before the holidays! Booked Dec 1st this way yesterday and by last night 40 invites were sent out through our invite system, and the show is already $1000 in sales and counting!******
HERE ARE THE GIVE-AWAY DETAILS:
***one entry earned for every existing December show already booked in the lounge***
*** one entry earned every NEW December or January trunk show booked during this incentive! Book trunk show in lounge and comment here in this thread once in lounge!***
***Draw will take place on Dec 7th and Getaway bag will be gifted when winner's trunk show qualifies with $500 in orders***
Email me your new booked shows or comment on this thread on our team FB page to be entered!
