A few years ago while at one of the conventions we attended, someone told me she was getting challenge gifts for her gals that came to the convention with their date books filled with parties IMMEDIATELY on their return from convention.
She said that usually, her gals were getting ready for convention and not really looking beyond convention so they weren’t ready to make the most of the enthusiasm generated AT conventions or conferences.
So, I thought it was a good idea to pass on the idea of challenging your team to fill their datebooks for their return. Encourage them to get their families involved, that even though they will be gone for a few days, they’ll need to go to work immediately upon their return!
Remember to offer challenges to those who are not attending conventions so they will keep working while you are gone!
While you are at convention send home a postcard from the location where you are with a motivational type sticker along with a short note. If you want to get them done in advance and just mail them from convention city, use some of the motivational postcards shown below and when you mail them from the convention city they will have that city’s postage mark on them.
I already have several ideas posted on our blog and website you can share with your team to help them fill their datebooks NOW: (The links below will take you to the BLOG POSTS. Then at the bottom of the Blog post is a link to the website category where ALL the products mentioned in the training are shown.)

T1-01 — Keep your Calendar FULL! Pick a Date-Pick a Prize!
T4-06 — New Catalogs???? Old Catalogs??? (Read this training on our BLOG)
Even if YOU are not attending convention, you know that there’s always great news introduced so get your team (or yourself) excited to start promoting the new products immediately! Don’t wait to find out what they are, just create curiosity by telling them, “You want to set your date for as soon as I return from convention so you’ll be the first to see the new products!”
We also have a few motivational items you could use to get your team hyped about the new things you’ll be learning at convention or conference. (They are listed below this item on the website. Follow the link below.)
There are ideas for things you could use as gifts for your team once they’ve achieved their goals. We will NOT be attending ANY Summer Conventions this year, so place your order NOW so you have your items in time!
Sheets of stickers or packages of postcards make great gifts too. As you give them products they use to boost their business, it is a WIN WIN situation because the products help them to be more successful too! You can include a TEAM CARD or BOOKMARK with the gift of a sheet of stickers and a Post IT pad. Put them in a cute cello bag, tie it with a ribbon and it is a useful gift that has something they keep for themselves as well.
Whether or not you are attending a convention YOU can share with your friends in the business.
