Welcome! Free Version Of The Bookings University

The FREE version of the Bookings University was created as the result of a survey of over 500 CFS fans.

The Cash Flow Show subscribers told us what you/they want/need in bookings training. This program was developed as a result of that survey.

The complete Bookings University training is part of the Elite Direct Selling Training Club.

Direct Sales Motivation

We were surprised to learn in the survey that the real problem in finding direct sales bookings was often lack of motivation not the lack of leads.

The following graph represents the answers to this question on the survey:

Which best describes your situation regarding finding business/bookings?

  • I don’t know where to find business
  • I don’t have skills to date shows
  • I am not motivated to find business
  • I am afraid to get out of my “comfort zone”

direct sales bookings graph

While we expected 26.3% of the responders to not know where to find business it was a surprise to hear that 14.7% were not motivated to find business!

It was no surprise that 23% of consultants felt that they lacked skills but the big surprise was that 35.5% were afraid to step out of their comfort zone.

That coupled with the lack of motivation means that a total of 50.2% of the consultants surveyed were just plain NOT WILLING to do what it takes to find business.

As a result of these survey responses we have added a unit to the Bookings University on “lack of motivation” and “willingness to get out of your comfort zone”.

You must be willing to sign up, show up, do the actions and follow up of the assignments in order for this program to work for you!

There ARE UNLIMITED bookings out there…. Are you willing to go to any lengths to fill your calendar?

Other Direct Sales Bookings Survey Results

While most of the other home party plan bookings issues were fairly predictable some comments were a surprise. It is impossible to keep this a class on BOOKINGS and include all of the requests.

These are 3 home party bookings training topics that were requested by enough people to justify inclusion in the Bookings University:

  • Lead generation in Facebook.
  • Getting more people to your online website/SEO.
  • Using newsletters more effectively

Direct Sales Training Topics

These direct sales training topics will NOT be included but were in fact requested in the survey:

  • It would be great if the articles and training were in Spanish! (LOL – now you are stretching me!!)
  • Transcription of all the audio and video training into text is not compatible with the bigger issue of: CHEAP!
  • Getting people to buy with total abandon is a great topic, but will not include it here!
  • Host coaching is not going to be a part of the training as we cannot run the University all year! (It is part of the Cash Flow Show party plan sales training program)
  • How to set up a blog is outside the scope of this class.
  • Software solutions for party plan: while we may talk a bit about this it will be too much to include in depth. (We do have another page on software and other direct sales tools that you can reference.)
It is ALL about Bookings!

Are you willing?

    Getting out of my comfort zone – I’ve started making videos to post in my FB group. I hate recording myself!

    Shared by: Rosalind Daniel:

    Hi Deb. I meet a lot of people and I make lots of friends but getting them to commit to having a show can be tough. I tend to speak quickly, so I am going to practice the 10 seconds rule. You are truly awesome!

    Shared by: Clarissa Miller:


    I love the 10 second rule and making friends not just asking to have a show. Also, intend to start having a whole lot more fun and begin to experience new adventures. I’ve definitely gotten into a boring rut. Ready to get out and start living again!!

    Shared by: Eva:

    Thank you Deb!
    I am working hard to move my direct sales business to my full time job, so I can quit working in the corporate world but I have been having such a hard time getting bookings. I know I need to step outside my comfort zone, and look forward to your advice assisting me with that!

    Shared by: Deb Bixler:

    Laura, take the 4 FREE bookings webinars and I think you will get some great ideas on how to find business.

    There is not one specific technique that is a magic pill but a combination of many! Regarding your workshop events, you should do everything to insure a great attendance that you would do in coaching a host….
    Invite 40
    Call to invite
    send an invite
    follow up

    I need help finding business. I am motivated and I am willing to get out
    of my comfort zone. I have had several crop/workshop but have not
    had many show up and I have asked many to host a party but have
    not had any success.

    Shared by: Lynette:

    Thank you for this! I need help with my bookings to not cancel before the party.

    Bookings are the heart of a good party plan biz!

    This is another goal for 2013.. I need to step out of my comfort zone to boost bookings! I have a relatively healthy calendar in general, but there is always room for improvement!

    Shared by: Carrie Douthit:

    I am afraid of getting out my comfort zone…2013 is time to do that!

    Shared by: Dawn Mulvey:

    The comfort zone is a biggie for me and something I will be focusing on in 2013. Thanks for the motivation Deb.

    Shared by: Marcia Patch:

    I keep trying to implement just one 1 more thing to my list. Getting out of my comfort zone has been a challenge, but actually one that is so very important. It does get easier I will have to admit. I try to think of it as a “game” – get back to that time in my life where we looked forward to something new.

    There really are unlimited bookings out there so take the class and take action!!

    Shared by: Kristina:

    I am looking forward to the free material! I need help getting bookings!

    Shared by: Marian Jameson:

    It is not a wonder that this is a popular page, this program is awesome. I recommend taking it then also signing up for the paid one… it is soooooo good!

    I have a full calendar every month thanks to you, Deb

    Shared by: Deb Bixler:

    Hi Gabriela, I wish I could do it in Spanish, The thing is that even to get it transcribed from the audios to text in English would make me have to charge alot more if I included the transcribed version. Since I don’t speak Spanish (a few words maybe) then that would also make it cost prohibitive.

    Not sure if it was you who asked but actually it was mentioned 2 times now.

    Regarding Millie’s question, the videos will be available for replay in the Free Version for a few weeks and the full version to rolls out after class #4 to anyone who completes them all.

    Shared by: Gabriela:

    Hi, Thanks Deb for this new University. I am a native spanish from Argentina, and it would be great to have some Spanish contents, but I know, it takes a lot of time and resources; so, no problem! It´s great your web, the articles, the videos, are really good…So, may be in the future I will go on your way to do something like you do, because in my country it doesn´t exist this culture of direct selling, like trainings, conferences, leaders form different companies teaching to someone…
    Sorry, perhaps, my english is not ver good, but your web is really great for me.

    Will there be recordings of the Booking University. I broke my right wrist and is very dificult to write with my left hand, since I’m right handed.
