Fun little turkey trot reminder for direct sales consultants

Posted on Updated on

This  is just a fun little reminder I send all of my Turkey Trotters. It’s so important to make things FUN while you’re reminding them how to be successful in collecting orders. 

Again, my job as a consultant is to set the bar so HIGH that they will never look anywhere else for another consultant!

This is all about increasing sales while celebrating your hostess AND giving them reminders on how to get those last minute orders.

If you’re looking for a quick sale, you’re missing the point with a Turkey Trot. This is to build trust and a relationship with those “part-time” hostesses. Make it fun, and maybe they’ll be booking their own home party in January!


I bought these erasers half off this week at Hobby Lobby. One eraser goes in each envelope with the flier. And make SURE you write DO NOT BEND on the envelope or it will poke through and the eraser will fall out!

    Hello! I love this “Turkey Trot” . I was wondering, do you have one for every month of the year? Or what they would be called? I dislike Help Wanted sign at my vendor tables. So I have been putting a Helper Needed Sign instead. And have a Turkey Trot for the ones that ask about it.

      I do not have one for every month of the year. I only personally do this a couple times a year
