The Receptionist is your NEW Best Friend

What You Can Expect

Customers: Around 20 new customers per 30 offices visited (avg 6 offices will order with 3-4 girls from each).

Sales: Higher orders (these girls have disposable income!).

Costs: You’ll be easily able to cover Catalogues  / samples costs with your profits.

*** This method is my favourite way to gain customers (and profits) quickly ***

You already know that I’m a fan of customers that are sitting down. And what better place to have a lot of customers in the same area (all with disposable incomes!) than those that sit at desks in the workplace
One of the quickest ways that I increased my sales was to target other businesses, in particular office buildings. What I would do is to go into an office building and say to the receptionist something like ‘Hi, I’m giving out free samples to all the girls in your office today, how many girls work here?’ She’d reply that 15 girls worked there, so I’d say ‘Great, here are your samples’ and put about 15 lipstick samples and 15 skincare samples (or whatever I was promoting that catalogue) on her desk along with 3 or 4 catalogues  (with order forms inside them of course).
I’d tell her I was coming back in three days for the catalogues as I recycled them (I would do my drops on a Monday and pick up on a Thursday). Then I’d simply say goodbye and thank her and leave! The important thing here is for her to think that you are simply giving out free gifts, not pushing for orders. Then she’ll likely go and give all the girls in the office their ‘freebies’.
When I came back on the Thursday I’d say, ‘Hi I’m here to pick up the catalogues I left on Monday’. Never ask if there are any orders, just smile and pick up your catalogues.

More often than not, I’d find that the receptionist would say as soon as I walked in, ‘Oh Suzie from Accounts loved that moisturizer! Here is her order’ or something along those lines. And if one person orders from the office it creates a snowball effect and lots of people from that same office will start ordering. Especially if you deliver their products to the office, then everyone will see what they got and want one too.
This is a very effective way of getting catalogues out there with low overheads (samples are usually more cost effective than brochures).
The office buildings in my area were typically 15 stories high with around 3 to 4 businesses on each level. If you do the math that’s around 50 businesses per building and with at least 10 girls in each office, that’s at LEAST 500 potential customers in the one building!
