Hi there!

So glad to hear you are looking into Silpada. Many women are apprehensive about being able to book parties. What I can say about Silpada is that there is amazing support and training available to representatives from corporate. There are 4-week tele-clinics on getting bookings, as well as weekly teleconferences. You can also get coaching from your sponsor or someone from sales & training at corporate.

It all really starts with your "who do you know" list, which you create when you start your business. You will have your kickoff, and ask people on your list to book with you. Once booked, you ask your hostesses to invite lots of people you don't already know. The idea then is to book at these parties. Each new hostess will invite some people from the party she attended, but there will also be new people that she invites who you haven't met, and this will expand your circle of influence.

You can also add to this by making new contacts through vendor shows, dropping off catalogs at businesses, using the 3 foot rule (anyone within 3 feet of you should know what you do), and more. These tools can lead to more parties, individual orders, or referrals.

If you have enthusiasm for your product and business, Silpada has the training and support to help you be successful. Good luck with your decision, and let me know if there are any other questions I can answer for you!

What a great opportunity! If you sign up at the event you may be able to take your kit with you. Plus, you and your rep will be entered in a drawing for free jewelry! Make sure you go with the rep you are considering for your sponsor, if she is available.

Good luck!!!
