How would it be to have 5 – 10 – 15 -20 or even 25 parties going on all on the same day?

If you had 25 parties on the same day and they averaged only $250 in sales, how much would that be?

I’ll do the math for you — it would be $6250 in sales.  At 25% profit margin that would be $1562 you would make (minus any expenses)  Would that be a nice “Christmas  Bonus?”

Would you like to have 250 NEW customers to add to your data base?

  If you had 25 parties with an average of 10 guests per party- that’s 250 new customers (and many could be from different areas which could turn into recruit leads!) How cool would it be to have this kind of growth in your business without you having to run all over town, instead to have the hosts coming to you? 

Wouldn’t it be great to have this kind of sales and growth without you having to constantly harrassing the host? You can have all this if you commit to having TURKEY TROTS! 

NOTE:  If you would rather LISTEN than READ how to do a Turkey Trot, I’ve included the AUDIO with this training.  (This was recorded a few years ago but everything is revelant!) T9-02-Turkey-Trot If you want to listen to streaming audio, I’ve had better luck when I open it with Crome or FireFox Browsers.  I’ve had better luck saving it to my own computer when using Explorer.  It all depends on your computer set up and configurations.   (I think you’ll need to RIGHT CLICK and save it to your computer.  Then OPEN it with your audio player on your computer.)


So, let’s answer the “What is a Turkey Trot?” question: Essentially it is an EASY type of BOOK PARTY! Why is it easy? Because your “Host” takes her “Turkey Trot” Host Bag to the family get together for Thanksgiving. Now, you know how either before or after dinner everyone gets out the ADS and checks out what they want to go and get on the biggest shopping day of the year. Well, why not provide catalogs so they can be looking at YOUR products and decide what to get for gifts for their friends and family? The steps are EASY, and the time is NOW to start promoting Turkey Trots!

  • Start advertising NOW so that your guests and customers can book a Turkey Trot. Create interest by putting the “Ask me about my Turkey Trot” stickers (S991551) on your invitations. Put the “Book your Turkey Trot NOW” stickers (S991552) on your catalogs and folders. (They’re even great on your order forms or catalogs  because EVERYONE can have a Turkey Trot because you don’t need to worry about a specific calendared event!)
  • Wear the buttons or put them in your display.  You can even wear the buttons around town and keep some Turkey Trot bags in your car so if people you meet are interested you have all the information right there.
  • Take several “Turkey Trot” bags (HC991551-6) to each party. Talk about it during the demo and tell everyone how easy it is. Use the example above that everyone is looking at the ads, why not make a party of it! You can add: “No waiting in lines, no having to get up early to take advantage of a sale because you’ll be offering incentives, discounts, and rewards too!”  Briefly discuss the rules and incentive you offer (see ideas below.)  The reason to take several is EVERYONE might like to have a Turkey Trot because they’ll be going to their OWN family Thanksgiving celebrations.
  • Prepare your “Turkey Trot” bags with your hostess packet, some catalogs, and your “Turkey Trot Rules.”  Here’s some ideas of what to put in each bag:

—  Be sure to “sticker” your catalog with “gift reminder” type of stickers to draw attention to your products that make great gifts. You may even want to “TAB” a few pages where you want to draw attention to specials. Be sure use the “Favorites” and “Gotta Have It” (S43579) stickers. Remember, you won’t be there to “Sell” your products so let the stickers do the talking for you.  See the K4-SELL Sell More Catalog Pack (K4-SELL) in the listing of products in this category on our website.  It includes a great selection of stickers to use in your catalogs at a great savings!  The link to the category is below.)

—  Use the “Your Christmas Gift Solution” Sticker to attach “Trotter Gifts” tag to the front of each catalog so each guest knows what rewards he or she will receive with her order. (What’s a “Trotter Gift”?  It is the gifts you are offering those who participate in your Turkey Trot. — You may want to include a “Holiday Gift List” sheet in EACH catalog in your “Turkey Trot Bag” so they can make a list of people they need to buy for and then also include a list of your products that would make great gifts. (See the FREE PDF) —  Use the “Thank you for helping me earn Christmas” stickers (S995554) on each of the order forms to reinforce that they are helping their family member to earn Christmas gifts by placing an order. —  Fill in the CLOSE DATE and DELIVERY DATE of the party on the Turkey Trot sticker (S992553) and put it on the front of the bag or the hostess envelope (or both). This reminds her family of this important information so they know when to expect their orders to arrive. (Be sure to let the hostess know how to handle orders that will need to be shipped directly to the customer if they don’t live close or however your company handles shipping.) —  Include your “Turkey Trot Rules and Rewards” sheet in the bag. (See the WORD document with suggestions that you can personalize and print on colored paper.)

  • Decide your “Turkey Trot Rules & Rewards” and get it ready to print.
  • Select a date that they can stop by your house and pick up a sample or two. (This can be a great incentive- the hostess can choose items from your kit on a first come first serve basis to take to their “Turkey Trot” to show her family and friends.
  • For example if you sell Cooking Items that you demonstrate with during your parties, a host can check out an item that she can use in preparing the meal or demo for her family. Or, if you sell games, they can check out a game. If you sell scrap booking items let them take a stamp or two so they can make a project. If you sell make-up let them take some samples. If you sell candles, let them take some samples so they can burn them and the family get to enjoy them. If you sell jewelry, let them check out a few samples.
  • Now, notice that I said CHECK OUT. When they come to pick up the item they will need to sign a check out slip with their credit card number and the understanding that they return it by the specified date in sellable or similar condition as they received it or they will be charged. Explain to them that you need these items back for your upcoming parties. Let them know upfront what that date is and preferably this will also be the close date and they can set an appointment to come to your home to bring the orders and close the party.
  • Be sure to have the “Turkey Trot” bags ready at the time they book their “Turkey Trot” so if they don’t want to check something out they will already have everything they need and you won’t have to chase around to get them catalogs, etc.)
  • Prior to the date send a “Turkey Trot” reminder postcard with the pick-up date, close date, etc.We offer the card ALREADY PRINTED and you just fill in the blanks  (see item PP992553CT or PP992553CPR to have  US print it with YOUR INFO on the card.)    If you have their email address, send a reminder the day before. Also send an email reminder about the “Close Date.”
  • Once you’ve got all the orders in, finalize and close the parties. Then reward the incentives you offered and be sure to follow up with a Thank You card.
  • Here are some suggestions for your rules and rewards: (You can of course adjust the Qualifying Party to be whatever YOUR company requires Then set additional rewards based on what YOU want to do in the FREE WORD document you can download. These are just some suggestions.)
    • A- All “Turkey Trot” hostesses with a “Qualified” party receive a TICKET to be entered in a drawing for $25 (or whatever you choose) in Free Products. A qualified party is one with at least 3 orders besides your own and total sales of $150 or more.
    • B- Hostesses that turn in a “guest list” will receive a TICKET for each 10 names. The guest list must include names, address, phone and email if available. (The “Turkey Trot” guest list is included in the FREE PDF .)
    • C- Each customer will receive a ticket for every $10 of their order for a chance to win a $50 gift card.
    • D- Each customer who places an order over $50 will receive a 5% discount on their order in addition to their tickets.
    • E- Once the party total is over $150 in orders besides her own- she will receive 10% off her personal order that is NOT part of her regular hostess rewards.
    • F- When party totals are over $300 the hostess may choose ONE half price item. Over $600 receive TWO half price items. Over $1000 = THREE half price items. (Or whatever you can offer with your company- you may want to have the half-price items based on a dollar amount.)
    • G- Hostesses will receive a ___________ as a Thank You gift when she turns in her qualified party.
    • H- All these gifts or discounts are in ADDITION to the regular hostess gifts you qualify for depending on the amount of your party (or however you plan to do it depending on what your company offers).
    • I- Hostesses will receive ________ for each party booked from the “Turkey Trot” (either regular party or book party will qualify. Gifts will be rewarded at the time the party’s are held and closed.) (These can be your normal hostess reward for booking a party)
    • J- Hostesses may come to my home to “Check Out” some items to take as samples for their “Turkey Trot” on a first come first serve basis. The quicker you book, the more there is to choose from. The check out day will be ________. All checked out items must be returned by ______ or you will be charged for them.

This explanation sounds long, it is because I’ve gone into great detail of how to do this.  Once you’ve prepared your rules, etc. it is really quite simple.

This can be SO MUCH fun and BOOST YOUR SALES tremendously! Wouldn’t it be great to have 10, 20, or MORE “Turkey Trots” going on Thanksgiving Day? Just think of the sales this can generate for your business.  If you had 20 “Trots” at only $150 each you would have $3000 in sales! 30 would be $4500!  What would this do  for your business? Think about what all these new names could mean to building your business into new neighborhoods and starting new party chains.

Offering Turkey Trots are so easy!  You don’t have to send invitations, you don’t have to drive, you just need to send some reminders and let them come to you (That’s why you can offer some of the extra benefits mentioned in the rules.) One more hint, send an invitation to do a “Turkey Trot” to previous hostesses.  Use the postcard: PP991552CT.   The card comes ALREADY PRINTED and you just fill in the blanks.   The more the merrier!!  We ALL need gifts for family, friends, co-workers, neighborhood gifts, etc! Why not encourage them to buy them from you instead of the local stores?   The FREE PDF’s are in THIS ITEM, just scroll down to the bottom of the page.  They will open in separate windows on your computer but the easiest way is to SAVE them on your own computer.  Then open them and make adjustments, etc.      This is the 9-02-DN TURKEY TROT IDEA.  To see all the products discussed go to the
