2 Booking Game IdeasPosted by Deb Bixler
These booking games ideas are fun and add value to your show.
If you play home party plan games at your show make sure they are FUN for the guests and serve a purpose for you, the consultant.
If you do not get bookings, increase sales or find new consultants as a result of playing games then do not waste your time doing them.
Games must be FUN for the guests or they will be counter productive!
2 Booking Game Ideas
In the direct sales industry, getting show bookings for shows is crucial to your success.
If you don’t have shows booked, you don’t make any sales; if you don’t make any sales, you don’t earn any money. Many people end up quitting their direct sales job because they can’t get enough bookings each month. Some are too timid and others just don’t know how to go about getting more people to book a show.
Home party plan games work great for almost any show, no matter what you are selling as long as they are FUN!
The Deal or No Deal Booking Game:
For this game you will allow guests to choose an envelope (or jewelry box or other appropriate container) which contains a prize.
Guests will each take one, prior to learning how the game works, and then have the chance to take the deal and open the envelope or not do the deal and hand it back to you after learning how the game works.
Make up enough envelopes so everyone can take one and fill about two-thirds with a prize plus a paper stating “host a fun-filled (company name) show with me!”
The prizes can be a free shipping coupon, $25 off your order, or a coupon for a free item.
The no deal is a way out…. they should understand that if they say no deal they maybe saying no deal to a booking and yet it may be a discounted order. We do not want to force people to host a show so if they are not willing they should take the no deal.
Tell the guests that the only rule is that if they do the deal they must honor the prize and that you will also honor it. You could easily get two or three bookings from a 15-guest show with this home party plan game.
Ribbon BOOKINGS Show Game:
Another booking game idea that is great for jewelry shows is the Ribbon Game. It is simple and can work with other product lines too.
Tie three ribbons on your host’s wrist (or you could use jewelry) and tell the guests that for each show booked tonight, the host will get to remove one ribbon. If all three are removed the host gets a special gift.
Guests will be excited to see if they all get removed and are more likely to book a show if their friend gets a prize.
