The Long Answer – How To Get Bookings When You Have None

The long answer to the question of how to get bookings when you have none is to first figure out why you have none then solve that problem.

Seriously, read this article carefully and really think about why you do not have a full calendar.

It is the only way you will solve the problem once and for all!

Why is it that you have no bookings?

  • Is it because everyone you asked said no?

If so, then my question to you is: how many have you asked?

Less than 20?
Well, then that is the problem! Get back at it!

Usually seasoned consultants can expect 1:10 to say yes, so you have not asked enough to get to yes!

In addition you have not asked enough people to develop the skills so that you achieve better results.

  • Is it because you don’t know who to ask?

If it is a lead generation problem – you just don’t know who to ask – then read these 3 articles:

  • Have you asked over 20 people and they all said no?

Well then it sounds like your skills are lacking…

  • Or do you have the skills to get the bookings but no motivation?

You need to think very carefully about this question…

When someone asks me how to get bookings when they have none I usually think it is because they don’t know where to find them or who to ask.

What I have found though is that, most often, it is either a comfort zone issue or motivation issue, both of which are problems that need solved from within yourself.

If that is the case than I suggest these 2 articles:

    Comfort zone, and not taking it personally. Sometimes I think we also need to think of different formats. Maybe the age group you are targeting is ‘done’ with a particular format? Time to adapt and modify!!

    I know I don’t have bookings because I procrastinate too much and I don’t ask. I have to overcome that.v

    My biggest problem with bookings is not asking enough people. I’ve exhausted my close contacts and I’m a bit afraid to step into my cold market. I love that you off the links to help us solidify our booking skills!

    This is my number 1 problem. I do a majority of my parties virtually and have had a few hosts recently express during their parties that they don’t like the format. I wonder why they want to make statements like then want their friends to book from them. I know they have lost sales from it too.

      Some will not like FB parties and others will. Offering a wide variety of services serves more people within your data base. Be clear in your events online and offline that any event will earn the credits. it does not have to be the same type of event.

    Yes- I stay in my comfort zone wayyyy too often! Time to bust out and start asking!

    the comfort zone…not opening your mouth or picking up your phone. Boy that cell phone is so light when i’m surfing FB and so heavy when I’m calling to ask for a party. But one of my 2017 goals is 5 contacts a day…
