Dating by telephone takes practice. Here are some tips:
Do You Need Money for Summer??
Here's what you need to do NOW - THIS WEEK!!
Set a time to make phone calls!! It can be a hour or a half hour or even 15 minutes at a time....
Who to call: Everyone you know... personal friends, family members, customers, leads from fairs/shows, last summer hosts...
What you could say:
"Hi, this is _________ from Tupperware & I am SO Excited about the Fantastic Sales we have going on right now AND great host benefits too! Tupperware is great for all your summer activities! I’m just really excited because Tupperware has just announced TWO trips that I can earn – free! One to New Orleans and one to Cleveland!
"Let me tell you what I am trying to do.... I want to set up as many little get togethers as I can over the next few days to help as many people as I can! Everyone loves a summer party – on the deck, by the pool or just in the air conditioning!!! This will help you and your friends do something fun for summer –with or without the kids! Wouldn't that be great?"
"We have money saving items for all families – from our best microwave line! To our FridgeSmart containers to the Modular Mates – keep your fruits & veggies fresh and your snacks too! Would you be interested in a cooking class – with 3 or more friends? A flip flop & sunglasses party? Or a Walking Taco party? We will even prepare the snacks so you wouldn't have to worry about that! Let me ask you, thinking about your schedule, would Tuesday evening or Saturday afternoon be better for you?"
You can insert whatever day and time options that fit your schedule.... And only if they say a definite NO, then you could say:
"I understand. Let me ask you, if one of your friends were doing this to help you out, would you attend?" (They will probably say yes, because they think there is no commitment to this one, and since they have already turned you down, they will want to give you a bone... LOL - then you say: "Can you think of one of your friends that likes having a few people over to have some relaxing fun that might be interested in doing something like this?"
Another Option would be: "I have a great party idea.... it's called a Pay-It-Forward Party... what we do, is invite a few people over just like a regular Tupperware party BUT when all the sales are calculated... instead of you keeping all of the hostess gifts, we donate them to a needy family or even an organization because Tupperware is great for everyone!! And we can even let the guests participate in picking out what to give away... Doesn't that sound like FUN?"
NOW - I say this again STRONGLY... If you Need Money for summer... NOW is the time you need to be calling people and talking with them.... ALSO, if you reach an answering machine... don't just leave a message and consider that a done call! Try them again at a different time later that day or the next day.
