I have kept my business thriving through personal referrals. The best new customers come from our existing customer base. By providing great customer service in the form of customer friendly artwork and organized workshops, I have been fortunate enough to have my customers bring their friends and in turn, those friends bring their friends. I started doing hands-on workshops as part of my hostess in-home presentations and was able to consistently get the bookings to stay busy. I have experienced an almost 100% turnover since I began my in-home workshops more than 12 years ago but they continue to thrive. One simple thing I do is I always have a bowl of chocolate! My chiropractor swears by his tub of red licorice to keep his patients happy.

CREATIVE CORNER: I'd like to talk a bit about the importance of having great samples! Having wondeful artwork to inspire your customers is the greatest sales tool, plus creating them is one of the funest parts of our jobs! The stamps and accessories you feature in your demos and workshops may not appeal to everyone nor can you use them all! The following 2 cards by Krista Hershberger and Karen Morris, helped me upsell our awesome new Glitz Glitter Gels. I had several customers order all 4 colors based on these 2 cards!
