Halloween Sales Ideas

Welcome to the  October/Halloween
Sales Ideas Page!  Glad you stopped by and I hope you'll take the time to SIGN OUR GUEST BOOK to say hi!  We love hearing from all of our Mary Kay Friends.  Just click on the turning pages at the bottom of this page. 

              MARY KAY STYLE!

You all remember the HOLIDAY FUN PACKET, right?  Well, this is the same thing, with a "Halloween" twist for great sales in October!  It's called the GHOST HOSTESS!

Offer all your great customers that work with other women, the chance of "treating themselves" to a HALF OFF SHOPPING SPREE by taking the Ghost Hostess Bag to work and getting 20 outside orders ... be sure to give a DEADLINE!

Simply copy off the sheet available here, and tape it to a 9X13 envelope ... tuck in a Look Book and the I'M INTERESTED IN sheet, and that's it!

The envelope informs all that purchase:
1. When the products will be delivered.
2. To make the check out to you.
3. If anyone is interested in being a customer, hostess, or consultant ... the sheet inside the envelope to write their name, phone number, email address and what they're interested in.
4. That when all orders are in, the Ghost Hostess will draw two numbers, and whoever has ordered on that
 WINS 1 Free Glamour item!

 Here's another GREAT IDEA  (thanks to NSD Sherril Steinman)...

HALLOWEEN TREAT BAG INSERT ... download the sheet and print off as many as you like ... there are 6 various slips on 1 sheet.  Then take a small cello bag and tuck in 1 Halloween slip ... tape a penny to bottom of slip ... a lipstick or eye sample, and 2-3 pieces of pre-wrapped Halloween candy and then tie the bag with seasonal ribbon. 
Here's a couple of ways of how to use the TREAT BAGS.   When you see a fun and smiling woman, ask, "Have you been tricked or treated this week?" *smile*  "I'm a Consultant with Mary Kay and I'm treating every smile I see to a Boo-tiful Treat and there's a penny in there that'll buy you a Free Eye Colour if you treat yourself to a 1 hour Pamper Session with me, as long as you don't already have a Consultant!"      

Great for meeting women!

And here's the "coupon" that's also in your October Newsletter.  Again, print off as many copies as you like and wrap the "coupon" around a hand cream sample or spa sample and hand out with the kiddies Halloween Treats for their Moms.  Last year, I did mine on Orange Paper and tied it with
                                                Black Ribbon.
                        Click on the WITCH for the coupon.

And now, for my next trick ...

Here's ANOTHER "coupon" that you can tack to the back of your business card and hand out while you're out and about ... it's an offer for a FREE MASCARA when someone books a FACIAL with you.  CLICK ON THE PICTURE

"Trick or Treat"

I remember the first time I was allowed to go out trick-or-treating on Halloween night with just my friends. (Of course I'm sure my Dad was following along at a safe distance but he'll neither confirm not deny that accusation!) Our mission was a singular one - get as much candy as possible in the shortest amount of time. In other words, I wanted my big plastic orange pumpkin overflowing with goodies.

We literally ran from house to house as we scoured our neighborhood intent upon our goal. On occasion, we approached a house, rang the bell, and nothing happened. The lights were on but no one answered the door.

Put in that situation, what do most kids do? They move on to the next house.


“Come on, let's go” and they're headed down the block.

·        They don't stop for a second to wonder why the owners didn't answer the door.

·        They don't take it personally.

·        They don't think that they're wearing the wrong costume.

·        They don't walk around the house peering in the window trying to see why the owners didn't answer the doorbell.

·        They don't sit down on the front step and pout.

·        And can you even imagine that they would just quit and go home? No way.

You see, kids are neat people to observe with regard to how they handle rejection. It just never occurs to them that the rejection is about them! And why? Because it's not. Kids have a unique ability to observe the world just the way it is.

As we grow up, our self-esteem takes a few hits and we start to think that everything that happens to us is about us.

It's not.

When you hear no, no thanks, I'm not interested, it's not for me, I don't like selling, please don't ever, ever, ever, ever, ever call me again for any reason is about them, not you and not the opportunity you have to offer.

Run to the next house, and the next one, and the next one.

That's where the candy is.

Remember, your goal is a full plastic pumpkin, and you don't care which houses or how many houses it takes to make that happen.

- Ann Vertel

Selling Ideas for Fall

With fall here and Halloween just around the corner, here are some Spook-tacular ideas you and your unit members might want to use to help boost sales:

1.Why not hold a Tailgate Party on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon during the football games. Suggest that your customers come dressed in one of their favorite teams sweatshirts. You could provide the pretzels or popcorn and let them shop.

2.Provide a Trick or Treat Special the weekend before Halloween. This would provide a great reason to contact all your best goblins (customers). You might even offer a Halloween Mask incentive on Indulge Soothing Eye Mask, Satin Lips Lip Mask or any of our classic basic facial masks or a Mas-scary incentive on mascaras.

3.You could attach color samples to your business cards and hand them out along with candy to the mothers of the trick-or-treaters who come to your door on Halloween. You could even attach a card that says, This is no trick. Treat yourself to a complementary facial!

4.Offer a Make Yourself Boo-tiful Night at your home. Do quick one-hour appointments and feature one of the looks on the new Trend Look Cards
