Bookings Tips

It is a bit early to think about the holidays but in is never to early to make plans for more bookings. Here are a few tips that have been around before but worth refreshing now and then because sometimes we forget! Some great tips for year round bookings!

Tap the Male Market

Think of opportunities that you may have to do unique shows. Whenever there is an opportunity to provide a service to men to assist them with shopping it is a win-win.

Most men need to buy anniversary, birthday and holiday gifts for the many women in their lives. When you provide the gift-giving service for men, you are opening up a whole new market. It can be live shows, catalog shows or just individual orders.

Men are a terrific market because they are not afraid to spend money on the women they love, whether it is their wives, girlfriends, mothers, grandmothers, daughters, or all of the above.

Home Parties For Men

You could have a football party, or basketball show, or some other type of male gathering show. I have had great success with this type of show. Pick a show date that coincides with a sports event that the men are already gathering together for. Then, you should distribute lots of catalogs ahead of time. In advance of the show the host will need a catalog for each guy coming to the show, plus some for friends not coming as well.

Host coach him to have the guys circulate the catalogs around among the women in their lives before the show. The women can then mark down their choices. You show up on the appointed day and gather up the orders. Sometimes it is effective to ask if the guys want to see anything special that their wives or Moms may have marked off. Most of the time an actual show is not necessary at all. (I do prepare a quick snack for them.)

Catalog Shows Boost Holiday Party Sales

A men’s catalog show is another terrific way to boost your sales. I have found that frequently this is a last-minute order in December. Sometimes the gifts got to them just the day before Christmas, but that was cool. There is nothing wrong with some “gravy” for the holiday commission check. Catalog shows are gravy, you know!! The gift-wrapping service is usually appreciated here if you can have the products delivered to you for wrapping, then you can deliver them to the host.

Clean Out the Basement Direct Sales

I have always liked this one. Just invite some last-minute male shoppers over to your house to shop from your inventory of product that you earned or accumulated and stored in your basement. It is strictly cash-and-carry shopping. Wrap it on the spot and send them off happy.

Direct Sales Gift Wrapping Service

A nice service or perk would be to provide a gift-wrapping service, although this is not necessary. It only works well if you do not have to run all over town to deliver products. Men love the service of getting a nicely wrapped gift for their girl! My UPS man comes here every year for his wife’s birthday and Christmas gifts.
