Part Two:

Would you like to have more guests in attendance at your parties? Here are a few things you can do to increase attendance.

13. Don’t leave the inviting of guests to chance. Your Hostesses are very busy during the summer and phone calls may never get done. Make sure you use the Hostess Triplicate 2 Guest List to insure guests are invited to your party.

14. Offer the Hostess a small gift ($3 maximum) to return the Guest List to you within 3 days.

15. Make sure you mail invitations, send e-mail invitations and have your Hostess make follow-up phone calls. Using all 3 of these methods will dramatically increase the attendance at your parties. With today’s technology I would even add texting into the mix as well as Facebook Event pages.

16. Remind your Hostess to call everyone a few days before the party so they don’t forget! The more contact your Hostess has with the invited guests the more she will have in attendance.

Have you been finding it impossible to find anyone who wants to join your company?

17. Stop TALKING and start listening. If you notice that most of the noise in the room is coming from you then it’s time to begin asking more questions and then LISTEN and DON’T INTERRUPT as they are giving their answer.

18. Ask “who do you know, that may be interested in earning an extra $600 to $1000 per month? Sometimes it’s easier to get someone interested by coming in the back door.

19. Remember, people are looking for opportunities to make extra income working a business alongside their family and full-time jobs. Don’t pre-judge because you have nothing to gain and everything to lose if you do!
Do you have leads that have been sitting on the “back burner” for months just waiting for the perfect time to join?

20. Call them now and put some “heat” on them. Learn how to ask questions that will create an uncomfortable feeling to compel people to move ahead and join today. The more you share information and the less questions you ask each prospect the greater your chance of “NEVER GETTING A RECRUIT.” Understand your prospects will only act when they feel that there is much to lose by not acting.

21. Play the Sponsoring Game at every party and get excited to make your follow-up phone calls, asking questions based on the answers provided in part 2 of the Sponsoring Game. (Part of the It’s a Party Out There program)
Do you need help with bookings, Hostess Coaching, sponsoring and mentoring your new recruits?

The step-by-step systems that are taught in the many products that are part of the “Ultimate Success Bundle” just may be the answer for your!

Are your recruits “stuck in muck” in their business? Are they struggling to get their business started? Would you like to increase the average sales your new recruits have in their first few months in the business? Try these simple techniques.

22. Make sure you ask enough questions during the interview to discover what your prospect would like to get from the business, before you show her how to join.

23. Give your new recruit homework at the interview. Schedule her launch or Grand Opening Party, give her dates to observe one or two parties and let her know when the scheduled training is.

24. Coach your new recruits for their first 6 weeks in the business as taught in the Master the Mechanics of Mentoring program. Make sure you have your new recruit call you after EVERY PARTY for the first 6 weeks and ask her specific questions to help her improve her bookings, sales and recruit leads every time she has another party!

  4. Melissa says:

    Karen, Thank you so much for allowing me access to your information. I can't believe how much I 've learned from you and Im so grateful to you for making this accessable to everyone who wants it. Some things that we think we may be doing, or should be doing…we just aren't. It's helped me so much. I have pages of notes. Thanks again.

  5. Amy Meyers says:

    I have listened to you through both TMA sets as well as just now signing up for your newsletter.  You have helped me a lot with concepts and attitudes.  The problem I have is that my business is unique in that I am selling the idea of the business – not a product. We provide energy and only have to have 10 customers signed up.  We make money by recruiting other business owners.  Any ideas when you aren't having the exposure to so many people from having parties?  I'm just trying networking groups, so I don't know how successful that will be yet.
    I love your quotes and your positive attitude!  I know I will learn a lot even though my situation is a little different.
    God Bless!
