Your Demonstrator Business Website (DBWS) is the first thing that many potential customers see of your SU! business.
Take 15 minutes today and update your DBWS Calendar to show all your activities.
Things you can include on this calendar are...
Classes that you are holding.
Stamp Club events.
Dates you are putting in orders that customers may "tag" onto.
Dates you have workshops scheduled. You can list your hostess by first name & last initial, such as Susie Q's stampin' workshop.
SU! events such as Regionals, Leadership and Convention.
Keeping your DBWS Calendar up to date doesn't take much time. But may be the difference of a potential customer deciding to email you because of the items on your calendar or skipping you by and looking at the demonstrator down the street from you because they're calendar is full of great events.
Brenda Crawshaw provided this list of items to put on your calendar when you don't actually have a lot of things going on to make your calendar appear fuller:
Add spots where you are available to do an in-home workshop. Decide how much notice you need to pull off this sort of event (2 weeks, 1 week). When you get to the cutoff date, go in and change the text on that workshop date to "Sorry! This spot has been claimed! Please see future dates for a time when we can get together for YOUR event!" (or something like that). NEVER let an unfilled workshop date go unfilled on your calendar.
Add in your office hours. Mention that this is the time when people can call in with questions about products, inspirations, how tos, orders, etc.
Add in a similar call-in time for people who have questions about becoming a demo. Let them know it's a no obligation, ask anything session.
Add in "creative time" blocks but make sure you verbiage explains that it's the time when you create samples, etc. so they don't think THEY can show up and stamp with you!
Add in your business building time. Trainings, Business Chats, etc.
Add in Stampin' Up! events even if you aren't attending them in person. It shows potential recruits the kinds of things that await them when they sign up.
Add in launch dates for online classes and events. Add in sign up deadlines for anything you offer.
Share the types of things that you include on your calendar, especially any unique ideas!
Taking Time For Business
Time is a manmade concept. It’s a little hard to swallow sometimes, particularly since everything in our lives seems to revolve around it.
Many times you hear excuses that there just isn’t enough time in the day to build your business.
Each day SUDSOL recommends one 15 minute task to work on to help build your business. These are achievable tasks that you absolutely can do.
Take 15 minutes from your lunch break, after dinner, before heading to work, or some other time that works into your schedule – and tackle just one small task to help build your business!
