It's Simple When Your Know How to Ask!

When asking someone to book a demonstration, remember to:

  • Let her know you're just getting started and could use her help. People like to help others!
  • Let her know she can earn many free products!
  • Emphasize how easy and FUN our parties are. Tell her kids are welcome, if you choose.
  • Offer a choice of days: "Would Tuesday or Thursday be better for you?" "Is a week night or weekend better for you?"
  • When filling your booking calendar, fill in the closest dates first. Work on booking parties within the next 3 weeks, then when those dates you wish to work are filled, start on the next week, and so on.
  • Book more shows than you want to hold to allow for postponements and cancellations. If you would like to hold 2 parties a week, schedule in 3. If it turns out that all 3 hold you can either consider it "overtime" and enjoy the extra income, or pass the party down to your buddy!
  • Create a sense of urgency. For example, "I only have 2 dates available while these terrific specials are going on. Which would be better for you?"
  • Remember - It's not a booking without a date!

When asking someone to explore Story Time Felts business opportunity, try one of these approaches:

Direct approach: "Hi Jane! I've just started a business that I think you'll love! Let's get together right away!"

Opinion approach: "Hi Jane! I've just started a new business and I really value your opinion. Can you spare an hour to tell me what you think?"

"Who do you know?" approach: "Hi Jane! I need your help! Who do you know that might be interested in earning some extra money and has 8-10 hours a week to invest?"

"Had to tell you first!" approach: "Hi Jane! I've just started a new business that I'm really excited about and there's no one I would rather work with than you! How soon can we get together so I can tell you about it?"

Don't offer too much information on the phone. Your goal is to create curiosity and get an appointment!

Remember you are in business for yourself, but not by yourself! If you get stuck or need help, just call or email your sponsor or Director!
