Day 13 Host Benefits

Today’s Task:   Figure out a Host Benefit.

Let’s look at an example of how the host benefit works.  Jan is the party host.  She has three guests in attendance. 
·        Sarah who signs up for a $100 Q  and schedules a party
·        Becky who places a onetime order of $230.00.
·        John who orders nothing but schedules a party.   
1.     When a guest signs up for the Q at a party the host gets to count that as 3 times to q total.  
For Example:  If Sarah signs up for a Q with budget of $100, the host Jan gets to count that as $300 towards her party. 
2.     When a customer places an order at a home party and then schedules their own party they receive an extra benefit called “the double dip”  this allows both the customer and the host to count the order toward their own party. 

This promotion allows those that attend a party as a guest to be able to put their personal purchase toward their own party when they host. This promotion was implemented to help prevent guests from holding off orders until they host their own party.

Double dip promotions are not transferable. Please note that each previous
party order is only eligible for one double dip promotion.

For Example:  Sarah signs up for a $100 Q and signs up to host a party.  As Jan’s party Jan counts $300 toward her party and receives $100 at ½ off.  At Sarah’s party she also gets to count $300 from her Q purchase towards her party.
If a host placed a one-time order and get on the q at the same party they DO get a double dip for both orders. 

3.     John schedules a party so Jan gets $100 at half off. 

So what would the host benefit look like? 

Free Product: 
Q $100 X 3 = $300
Party Total

Host receives Free Product

½ off Product:
½ off
Sarah host a party
$100 at ½ off
½ off
John hosts a party
$100 at ½ off
½ off for party total
Party total was $530 so she gets $100 at ½ off
$100 at ½ off
Host receives ½
$300 at ½ off

Today’s Worksheet: 

Host Benefit Work Sheet. 
For me the host benefit was confusing until I actually sat down and figured one out manually.  Yes I know that the computer will now figure it out for you but I think it is important for you to figure one out by hand.   

When you are finished you should know: how much the host receives in free product, and how much the host receives in ½ off product.  Come back tomorrow to check your answer. 
Your need: 
1.     Print out the host benefit form
2.     Pen
3.     Calculator
4.     Party numbers—see below.

No Parties Booked from this party. 

Now Watch the Video:  Shelf Reliance Host Benefit. You won't be able to enter these numbers because this is not your party but watch the video to see how host benefits are entered into the back ens.

The video is about 6 minutes long, and walks you through how to enter a host benefit order on the back end. 

  Today’s Notes

1.     It’s best to tie these new parties to the current party they are booked from for two reasons.

·        Because the original host gets $100 half-off credit for every party booked from their own demo 

·        It pulls the double dip credit easily over to the past customer who is now the new host's benefit form, saving you a call into SR customer service.

·        What if I hit a wall and I want to entice a past customer to host a party will they still get their double dip after I close the original party?

·        Yes. But the original host will not get the $100 half-off credit. You will still need to enter the original party ID # they ordered from when you create the new event. That way their previous order will be tied to the event they are now hosting, again saving a call into Shelf Reliance.

2.     The host benefit expiries after 90 days (3 months) from the date of the party.  You can find the expiration date by starting a host benefit order.  It tells you on the second screen.

3.     Free and ½ price items cannot be combined. For example is the host orders 3 can of strawberries than ALL 3 must be under the free items OR under the ½ off items.

4.     Taxes on host benefits are charged on the money that is spent.  Shipping is charges on what is shipped.
For example:  If Jan’s order ends up totaling $26.00 that she pays Shelf Reliance than she will pay tax on the $26.00. 
Jan’s product total (before any discount is taken for her free and ½ price items) is $300.00.  She pays shipping on the $300.00

5.      Hosts do NOT have to use the full value of their half off nor do they have to use any of it.  They can NOT save it for the future. Everything is submitted on this form at one time.
