Workshop Planner Benefits
Why invest in our workshop planning service? We’ve long recognized that workshops are the lifeblood of a thriving Stampin’ Up! business. However, they can also be one of the most intimidating aspects of the business for new demonstrators and even more seasoned demonstrators. With this workshop planner, our goal is to help you increase the effectiveness of your workshops by shortening the learning curve and taking the guesswork out of it for you.
Benefit #1~ It will save you LOTS of time!
If you are a new or hobby demonstrator who has never done a workshop before or if you are a more experienced demonstrator with limited time, you will find great benefits in having your workshop planning done for you.
We all know that time is precious. For some of us, Stampin’ Up! is a secondary job, for other’s we want to minimize the time spent on work, maximize the return, and have plenty of time for our families. These planner’s will do all that for you. With the projects planned out, advice on prepping, upsell’s incorporated, a checklist to ensure you leave with everything needed, and advice on delivery, the only thing left for you to do will be booking your workshops, prepping and delivery.
Benefit #2 ~ Increase in bookings
Now while this can not be guaranteed, there is certainly plenty of evidence that if you present yourself in a professional manner, with exciting projects, you are more likely to have people coming back for more, especially when they have some great simple projects to take home and show others. It gives a real sense of pride to people to be able to give something beautiful, that they made themselves, and on their first try too!
Benefit #3 ~ Increased sales
One of the biggest sale busters for workshops is introducing too much to fast. We all get excited by the catalog and all it has to offer. But for people who have never done this before, it can be daunting. They just don’t know where to start, and often don’t buy anything as a result. The best way to combat this is to offer simple projects that can easily lead them into some starting purchases. Everything is coordinated and uses one stamp set to to simplify the buying process for your customers. And for the more adventurous there are numerous step-it-up options.
As part of the workshop planning package we include a customer hand-out with instructions on re-creating the three projects offered in each workshop planner. When offered as an incentive with purchase, this often provides the little extra “push” that workshop guests might need to place an order.
Benefit #4 ~ You’ll earn more money
There’s nothing worse than designing, planning and offering a workshop to your customers, only to discover at the very end of it, that by the time you factor in all the hours you spent before, during and after, you not only didn’t make any money, it actually COST you money!
Your workshop earning potential is based on two main factors – the amount of time you invest and the effectiveness of your workshop presentation (see Benefit #5).
Because the workshop planners have been designed to take all the work out of workshop planning for you, all you have to do is book, prep and give the workshop, and then follow-up on any orders received during the workshop. That means that right off the bat, the planner will have saved you between 4-5 hours – allowing you to fit in at least one extra workshop in your month.
Benefit #5 ~ An experience-based service
Benefit #6 ~ Appealing designs to inspire a love of stamping
At Demo to Demo, the heat is always on to come up with fresh innovative ideas to present to your customers. We are always scouring the internet to learn about new trends and ideas that can be adapted to Stampin’ Up! products. Many hours are spent designing fun and fresh projects that will appeal to beginner and experienced stampers alike, and there is always pressure to make people excited for more.
Benefit #7 ~ Workshops tailored to your hostess’ needs
Putting together a workshop that meets your hostess’ needs without adding a lot of extra work to your plate can be challenge. Whether your hostess wants a quick, in- and out- workshop, whether the guests are beginners or experienced stampers, or they want to learn cards and/or scrapbooking, the mix and match format of the workshop planner will allow you to tailor your workshop to your hostess’ desires.
Benefit #8 ~ The first service of it’s kind
Although you can find some workshop-related information and tools scattered here and there throughout the internet, it takes time to dig it all out, and time to try it all out. We’ve done that for you and pulled it all together into a comprehensive workshop planning service.
Benefit #9 ~ A service that listens to you
Benefit #10 ~ Customer service above and beyond
It is our goal to offer you the highest level of customer service possible. While many services will leave you on your own once you’ve downloaded the product, we will go above and beyond for you.
