Tips for Booking

1) Make a big List! Use the Social Mixology sheet to help you brainstorm 10 names in different social circles.Tip: think about relatives, acquaintances, kids' friends' contacts, community connections and friends

2) Mail out a summer look book. Be sure to write a personal note with the book and mark a piece or two that you think the customer would love. Say something like, "Hi Lisa! I thought you would love seeing our new summer collection. Check out the page I marked. The Serenity Stone Earrings would love gorgeous on you! I can't wait to hear what you think! XO Reagan"

3) OR, send out warm up emails to prospective hostesses. Use the wording from June's Words to Say.

4) Schedule your "Power Hour" to follow up with a phone call to all the ladies you sent books or emails to earlier.

5) Check the SDU for Faux Booking Calls to hear what you could say.

6) When calling, be bubbly and excited but genuine. Think about all the fun themed trunk shows that would be fun for summer like Cupcakes and Couture, Belinis and Baubles, Drinks and Jewels by the Pool. Be sure to look over common objections so you are ready. Offer 2 choices: weeknight or weekend? Tuesday or Thursdays?

7) DON'T leave long messages. If anything, don't leave a message the first time you call.
