Booking Blitzes and a Contest!

Here's a pretty popular idea on getting some bookings: a booking blitz. If you've never heard of this before, let me enlighten you! A Booking Blitz is basically a set period of time, with a booking goal in mind, to sit down and get all of those bookings. A lot of people choose to do it with their team or even a power partner. The key here is to make it into a contest. Women love to help women in a contest, and it's motivation for you to get those bookings you need. If there are no contests in your team or company, create your own! Another tip for your booking blitz is to do it at a time when people are usually home, like a Tuesday night at 7:00pm. Block out a period of time, lock yourself in with your List, schedule, and the phone, and book away. Make sure you create a special script for the blitz that includes the contest and what's-in-it-for-them. Give your prospect options, like "I still have some Thursdays and Sundays open, what works best for you?". This narrows in their thoughts on specific dates, because we all get busy. So, if you've never tried this, you absolutely must! Having a contest gives you an extra shot of confidence and motivation to get on the phone! Do you need a contest? Ok, here's a big one: You have one week to get 10 bookings on your calendar for September and October (Combined). If you decide you want to take on this challenge, please comment below so we can motivate each other! Good Luck!
