PTA school holiday shop mistakes … you don’t want to make them.
For example, could fear of looking looking bad in the eyes of fellow PTA members, hurt your chances of the best school holiday shop boutique?
Yes, it could.
Nobody wants to make a suggestion that flops. You know your board members better than anyone else. While some are helpful and supportive of you, others may be jealous. That is why some parents are worried about trying something new in their school.
Will you make these common PTA School Holiday Shop Mistakes?
Are you looking for PTO holiday shop ideas?
Sharon told us that she was a little nervous with their first Holiday Shop.
Can you relate to that?
Let’s face it. It’s hard to stand out and be different sometimes. After all, nobody wants to look foolish. That’s probably the number one reason why some parents hold back from promoting a school holiday shop for their students.
In fact, many of our clients felt that way at one time or another. We could hear it in their voice during our initial consultation. Although many were afraid to tell us how they felt at first, many “confessed” afterwards. That is … after their school shop event was a smashing success!
The funny part is that the very ones that were nervous about how they would look for suggesting a school holiday shop were the very ones that were PRAISED by their peers for making this happen.
Funny, isn’t it?
For instance, that is what Sharon did!
In her review, she confessed about being a little nervous at first, but then said “It was a great fundraiser and we will definitely have one every year from now on. This is because the support and customer service is great!”
So, where are you in your thinking right now on this? Perhaps you may be thinking about one of the these lingering questions:
Are you concerned with how much this will cost you?
Put your checkbook away. We make this a really easy decision for PTAs and PTOs. You pay for nothing upfront from us. We will send you the inventory and you simply send back what doesn’t sell.
No hidden charges or fees.
You can’t get easier than that, can you?
So, can you see how this protects you personally?
Do you have any happy customer success stories to read?
Nobody wants to be the first person to try something, do they?
