CHECKLIST FOR A SUCCESSFUL HOME SHOW (modified 10/04)

Dear ___________,

Thank you for doing a book show! My most successful hostesses shared these tips with me. I hope they will help you earn FREE all that you have on your wish list1

* Set a goal of reaching the $500 level or above. At this level you will earn TWO 1/2 price items. (Make them the most expensive product or Hostess Only offer. This will give you the exclusive at maximum savings!) You will also receive $50 in free products. Be sure to look at this month's flyer to see what the Hostess Bonus is.

* With bookings you will earn wonderful FREE products, starting with only ONE booking and increasing in excitement AND value with more bookings. Ask all your friends to book ann in-home or book show! They will have fun getting together, seeing the products and learning new ideas!

* Please call, mail or email your orders by ________________. (see bottom of page for contact information).

* Enclosed are Wish Lists and flyers. Also enclosed is a shipping and tax chart to calculate your orders easily. Call if you need anything more.

* Emphasize to your friends that you are taking orders for just a short time. Make sure to fill out the order form completely with name, full address and phone number.

* Ask if they have any occasions coming up that require a gift. Our products make wonderful gifts! With our new RANGE of products from basket, pottery, and wrought iron to delicious food items there is sure to be SOMETHING for EVERYONE!

* Be a "McLongaberger" - "Would you like a liner and protector for your basket?" We love our baskets more when we have them completed with protectors, liners, etc. ! They will thank you! I suggest getting a protector for all baskets!

*  If you need to drop off a Wish List or flyer for someone, tell them you will call the NEXT DAY to get their order.

* I take VISA, Master Card, and Discover! Take their name, card number and expiration date! Individual check orders should be made out to me.

* Have you ever thought of becoming an Independent Longaberger Home Consultant? You have done all the work! Instead of giving me a nice commission, this could be one of your first shows. I truly love what I do and I know you would too! Please call me for information!

AGAIN, THANK YOU FOR HAVING YOUR SHOW - PLEASE CALL ME IF I CAN HELP YOU FURTHER!

HAVING A HOME SHOW HANDOUT!!

CONGRATULATIONS!!

You have made the decision to host a Longaberger show! You have EVERY reason to be excited! Not only will you have the opportunity to receive items at 1/2 price, but you may also earn FREE products while enjoying a relaxing presentation with friends. The following tips are designed to help you achieve the most you can out of your Longaberger show.

VARIETY IS THE SPICE OF LIFE

Invite a wide variety of people - friends, neighbors, club and school friends, family, church members, co-workers - do not PRE JUDGE their interest. They're sure to love SOMETHING in our new VARIED line of products!

OVER-INVITE

Usually about 1/4 to 1/3 will be able to attend. So invite more than you think you can accommodate!

THE EARLY BIRD CATCHES THE WORM

Deliver or mail your invitations 10 - 14 days early. Save some money by using postcard stamps and keep some extra invitations in your purse to hand out to friends. Make reminder calls and gather RSVP's a couple days before your show. It's so easy to forget!

MAKE REFRESHMENTS LIGHT & EASY

Light and easy refreshments are best. It is easier on you. I have some samples of our new food products for you to mix up and serve. This will help a lot. Let me know what you would like!

OUTSIDE ORDERS

Try to collect these early. We will try to close your show within 2-3 days of your show. Collect as many of these as possible - they can increase show sales very quickly. I will be happy to equip you with extra Wish Lists and flyers as you need them.

ENCOURAGE BOOKINGS

Now only will you be giving a friend the opportunity to enjoy the same benefits that you have received, you will also earn wonderful booking gifts (the value of these gifts increases as you obtain more bookings!). Even if you you re-book from yourself you will get a gift!

CONSIDER THE OPPORTUNITY!

Longaberger has enriched the lives of so many! Consultants enjoy discounts, earn free products and make extra spending money. Meeting new friends is a wonderful benefit too! All this within a schedule that YOU set up. How many other jobs offer such benefits?

HAVE FUN!!
