IDEA #1:

Host an ORGANIZING PARTY:

IDEA #2:

BATTLE OF THE HOSTESSES

Basically, create a competition between hostesses. Set the goal SMALL. Here’s an example post:

I’m looking for FIVE ladies to join a special event called BATTLE OF THE HOSTESSES!

  1. Earn FREE and HALF PRICE items
  2. Have a TON of FUN
  3. And have a friendly competition with the other hosts!
  4. Whoever wins…gets the GRAND PRIZE
  5. But everyone gets FREE and HALF PRICE items!

Post “ME!” below if you would love some more details!

IDEA #3

HOSTESS APPRECIATION EVENT

Watch this quick video and tell me what YOU think you could create within this party?

What will you need to prep?

What can you do within the event?

How can you follow up AFTER the event?

Let’s KNOCK OUT some ideas…see what I did there?! TEEHEE

IDEA #4:

Host an ONLINE AUCTION:

What’s an online auction you say?

You take all the product you have lying around and sell it at a discounted price, and use it to enter one big order yourself. You get rid of old product and you buy current product.

Do you have a new catalog coming out? What product is in that catalog that won’t be returning in the NEW catalog? SELL IT!

Do you have product that you’ve gotten as incentives and discounted customer specials? SELL IT!

How do you sell it?

Take individual pictures of each product, tell your customers you’re posting the album at a certain date and time. Start the bidding at $2. Tell them they can only bid in $2 increments. And they can’t go over the retail value of the product.

How does this help you?

You turn around and buy product to help your business. Things you can model, do videos on, and product that WILL be in the new catalog.

Can you BOOK parties from this too?

I’m SO GLAD YOU ASKED! YES! Cause when someone wins a product, you say… “Okay Sally! You won! It’s $25 or…you can host an online party in January and get it for FREE if you hit $200 in sales!” What do you think?!” Show them the customer specials and let them chew on that for a second.

And you say…but I’m giving it away for FREE?! But…you aren’t using it, it’s not making you any money, it’s not getting you a booking…so it’s essentially worthless sitting in your closet. USE IT!

IDEA #5:

HOST A PROBLEM PARTY

This is so much fun! Check out this video and then post the answers to the questions in the video below!

It’s crucial to your business to be planning ahead. There’s so much happening at any given time, that you will miss things if they’re not written down and planned out!

Happy Planning ladies!

New Facebook Group Photo Size

Image Posted on Updated on

Facebook has done it again! They changed the group photo size.

Here’s your new custom dimensions:

What happens to your photo when you upload it?

This is to help show you what will happen with your group photos now with the changes. In case I haven’t given you enough of a headache today!
Outside the red box will show on mobile but not desktop.
Inside the box, is what will show on desktop.

And if you’d like to know how to create custom dimensions…here’s a quick “how to” video for Canva. This will allow you to create those dimensions so you can have the perfect sized banner for your groups!

So I’ve been playing with the Facebook group banner size, and getting frustrated like many of you! So I went straight to the source.
Here’s the explanation from Facebook on why they changed the banner size. And why it’s different for everyone too.

The recommended size via Facebook is 1640×856.

However, you need to keep your graphic centered. Because the reason they changed it, was so that the graphic specs would be the same across all platforms…mobile devices, tablets, computers, etc. So when you upload the graphic, it tries to “auto adjust” to fit all platforms. Thus, the headache. 


So…go drink a beer, a glass of wine…and tilt your head sideways and maybe it’ll look right! JUST KIDDING! 


Just have to keep playing with it until it fits right on the computer screen. Good thing is…once it does, it will look great from any device 🙂
Hope that helps a lil.

Want a TON of November theme party ideas?

How about some free Facebook party BANNERS?!

I have a pretty awesome group of friends over on Directly Social, and they came up with all of these theme ideas for your month of November! You can use these as themes AND posts within your parties!

And if you want some FREE Facebook Party Banners,

join us on DIRECTLY SOCIAL ON FACEBOOK

Here’s some ideas they came up with for November to inspire you a little:

Changing leaves

Coffee

Holiday Shopping

Sweaters and hoodies

Pumpkin Pie

Pumpkin Spice & everything nice

Thanksgiving Crafts with kids

No Shave November

What type of party can you use a theme for?

ANYTHING! Whether you’re doing home shows, online parties, fundraisers, BINGO nights, or even straight retail orders…it doesn’t matter. The problem is everything is BORING! Same old stuff on a different day. Using a theme can help pique some interest and attract new customers as well as engage your current customer base.

Don’t forget to join our Facebook group!

Click here to join DIRECTLY SOCIAL

So how do you use a theme?

So, think about it as if you’re planning an actual party. You plan:

  • Plates/cups
  • Decorations
  • Music
  • Food
  • Trinkets
  • Invitations

You would do the same thing for a home show with a theme.

So what can you do for an online party theme?

  • Graphics
  • Share recipes (everyone loves a good recipe)
  • Facebook banner
  • Invitations
  • Games (centered around a theme)
  • Fun Facts (about your theme)

See where this is going? Train your brain to think differently. Everything you do for a home show, can be done for an online party. ESPECIALLY with Facebook Live now.

Happy (almost) November everyone!

Team Sales Challenge for Direct Sellers

Posted on Updated on

Here’s a challenge I’m sharing with our team today for a weekly sales push to increase those holiday sales!

Each week we will be focusing on a certain “push” to grab some extra sales. It’s important to FOCUS 100% on one task at a time! This week, this is it! Follow these 4 steps!

TEAM CHALLENGE!!!!!!!!!

WHO’S IN??!!
I’m creating a graphic to share when you make a sale AND for every message you send!! Let’s blow our team page up!! Post the second graphic for every message you SEND (snap a pic of it) and post the graphic for every sale you make! Let’s all earn that CINDY TOTE FOR FREE!!!!!!!!

I’m giving away a $25 GIFT CARD to Amazon to our winner. All you have to do is participate! Each picture you snap of messages and WOOT WOOTS for orders…gets you an entry!

1. Choose 15 People to PRIVATE Facebook Message or Individually Text. These people are people who know and love you NOT RANDOM PEOPLE!

You should be able to answer YES to all of the following questions to choose these 15 people:
– Do you know this person well? YES!
– Does she know what DS business you do? YES!
– Has she ordered from you before? YES!
– Will she answer me tonight? YES!
If you have more than 15 people, GREAT! Run with it!

2. Send this message. ONLY the message! DO NOT send the picture or link to your website with this message:

“Hey girl! I’m in a contest tonight but just until midnight tomorrow. Would you be willing to take a look at something for me? If so, just holler and I’ll send you the details!

LOVE THIS SO FAR?

3. You want her to respond with permission for you to send the link. Give her the chance to WANT to help you! Once she gives you permission to send it, you can respond to her with the graphic and the following message:

Thank you! Thank you! Here is the graphic! I will check back with you later tonight to see if you would like some of these items. You ROCK! You can get any of these sale items, holiday items, or even browse the catalog. And if you spend $35…I’ll give you an EXTRA $5 off tonight AND…you get to take advantage of the customer special if you want to!

LINK TO SALE ITEMS: ((INSERT LINK TO YOUR SALE ITEMS))

LINK TO HOLIDAY ITEMS: ((INSERT LINK TO YOUR HOLIDAY ITEMS))

HERE’S HOW YOU GET THOSE TWO SPECIFIC LINKS ON YOUR SITE:

4. Follow up with them later this evening…and create a PARTY for this on your site. So if they want…they can go directly there to order.

  • you could either take hostess benefits or let them know one person will WIN hostess benefits if you get to $200 in orders
  • if you got to $200…you could use the half off and $25 hostess credit to order a couple products and offset the $5 discount you gave!
  • the idea is to put an urgency to this. Only til midnight tomorrow!
  • you can also ask if they’d mind posting on their Facebook page for you to see if any of their friends want some
  • you can also post the graphic on your customer page or email your entire contacts list
  • create a post on your business page and ask your customers to share it
  • send a newsletter to all your contacts in your back office and highlight this

This is the graphic we will be sharing on our team page:
