What’s this LinkTree for Instagram all About?

Posted on Updated on

So there’s a cool new website that allows you to make a “link tree” for your instagram account! It’s actually called Linktree.

My friend Te’Amo Blakely just casually mentioned it last night and I was like HOLY COW! This is awesome!

What is Linktree?

It’s a website that provides you with a unique URL to list in your Instagram profile. When they click on it, they will be led to your linktree site with multiple links available for them to click on! How wicked cool is THAT?!

Want to check out my Linktree?

If you would like to check out my Linktree to see what you can do with yours, click here to follow me: FOLLOW ME ON INSTAGRAM

And simply click the link in my profile to check it out!

How much does it cost?

That’s the best part! It’s FREE! WHOOP WHOOP!

How do you set up Linktree?

1. Go to LINKTREE

2. When you link your Instagram account, you’ll be led to a page like this to “add buttons” and links.

3. Then click on the SETTINGS button and you can choose your color scheme.

It was the easiest thing to do! There’s no tricks or crazy hoops to jump through.

You can even pick the colors for your page:

Way to go Linktree! You know we love to customize everything! And it looks like you’ll be able to personalize that even more soon!

So what links/buttons should you create?

  1. Your facebook business page
  2. Your closed customer group
  3. Your shopping site
  4. Pinterest account
  5. Twitter account
  6. I linked one to a Google Survey
  7. I linked one to a NOTE on my Facebook business page
  8. You could have one link to customer specials each month
  9. Link to your blog
  10. Link to your opportunity event
  11. A specific YouTube video

The possibilities are quite endless! So what do YOU think you could link to? Who’s ready to check out this new tool called Linktree?

I will say that I’m going to continue to watch this. I have been using a Google Survey as my link with lots of information loaded on it, and I really like it. I haven’t decided which one I will stick with.

Thirty-One February Facebook Party Script

Posted on Updated on

Here is my script for my February parties.

I am going to be posting my party scripts 2 months behind, so you can get an idea of posts to use or change up! I stopped posting my monthly scripts because Facebook is cracking down pretty hard! But I still want to be able to show you all what I’m up to.

So this is a 4 day script. I’m testing new formats every month, so you’ll see a lot of changes each month.

 

PLEASE NOTE 3 THINGS:

#1: Do NOT use my links for any photo albums, they are all linked to ME. And any graphics I share on here are NOT for use. You can use the idea and create your own. But please do not alter or use my photos in any way.

#2: Make sure you’re changing up the wording a bit.

Facebook does not like all of us using the same things (graphics and wording). So change it up, make it your own! And help keep us all safe on Facebook!

#3: I Use Cinchshare to schedule my party posts.

It’s one of the best things I ever did for my business. I schedule all posts for my parties in 30 minutes. So I can be out playing with my kids while my parties are going full steam ahead! Here is a free 5 WEEK trial for you!! Go to www.cinchshare.com and check it out and enter the promo code “CINCHFREE” to get 5 weeks of Cinchshare for FREE. Your business and your family will thank you!

And here’s a video to teach you how to schedule those posts if you need help:

 

PRE-POSTS (day before the actual party starts):

I start this on February 1st. Then the actual party posts start on February 2nd. The actual party only lasts 4 days, then I post reminders once a day until the 13th of the month when we try to wrap it all up and get orders in.

I typically post 5 times a day during the 4 day event:

9am, noon, 3pm, 6pm, 7pm

On the first day, I do 5 “pre-party posts”. This gives the hostess time to get everyone invited and involved before the actual party starts.

 

DESCRIPTION of the February Facebook event:

If you’ve never been to a Thirty-One party, you’re in for a TREAT! And if you’ve been to one before, you’re gonna love this one MORE! LOL! We’re going to have FUN!

This party will last for 4 days! You’ll see some games, some prizes, some organizational tips, some gift giving ideas, and a whole lot of PRETTY THINGS YOU NEED;)

Want to view the whole catalog online? Just click here and you can view it on your phone or computer: https://issuu.com/buymybags/docs/spring_catalog

Be sure to click GOING so you don’t miss out on all the fun and prizes! I’m giving away ONE PRIZE a day during the LIVE 4 day event! And friends don’t let friends shop alone, so be sure to invite your friends too!

February Customer Special: Spend $35 and choose up to TWO Mini Storage Bins or All-In Organizers – in any combination – for $8 each.

Hi there! My name is Melissa Fietsam, some people call me the crazy chicken lady. I love cooking and posting recipes, and it’s mostly chicken. Not as cool as like…Bat Woman…but I’ll take it;)

Just kidding, HA! Their ages run from 3 years old to 18! So, I’m a little crazy. Self diagnosed and living the dream:)

Thirty-One is simply FUN. And PRACTICAL. And gosh darn it, it gets me out of the house! So I love it and I LOVE to share it! I’m a retired Registered Nurse. I used to work in the Emergency Department and I taught LPN’s at a local college on the side. Now I’m a stay at home mom with TWO jobs that I get to work from home! I’m also a social media trainer and get to travel the country several times a month. FUN!!

Instagram and Facebook are Amazing Together!

Posted on Updated on

I love all the new integrations happening on Instagram and Facebook!

And one thing that is AMAZING, and everyone needs to know about it, is that you can reply to a comment, post a comment, or trash a comment on your Instagram account, right from your Facebook BUSINESS PAGE!

Check this out!

  1. Click on your INBOX on your Facebook Business Page
  2. Then Click on the Instagram icon
  3. Now you can reply, comment, or trash comments all from your Facebook “back office”.

This is kind of amazing on so many levels. If you’re not utilizing your inbox for your Facebook business page, I’m going to guess you’re missing notifications!

Let me show you WHY I love using the inbox tab on my Business Facebook Page!

Answering people on posts!

For instance, I’m running 6 Facebook parties right now. Instead of clicking on every single party and checking every single post, I go to my inbox and I can see EVERY post and EVERY comment. But the cool thing, I can ANSWER them all right from my inbox. So I’m not chasing posts and scrolling and trying to go through a million pages.

This helps me:

  1. Save time
  2. Not MISS notifications
  3. Work my business like a #GirlBoss

WOOHOO!

Check it out and work your business SMARTER not HARDER!

This is just one more reason you should be hosting your Facebook parties on your Facebook business page. I firmly believe this is where they need to be in order to run your business efficiently.

  1. You can check all party posts and comments in one place
  2. Your events are public, so your hostess AND guests can share the posts
  3. YOU can share the posts via Twitter
  4. It is ALL searchable content on the web, which gives you more exposure for your business and brand
  5. You can easily find all your past events and post in them occasionally

I challenge you today to RETHINK how you’re hosting your Facebook parties!

Do you SUCK at Hostess Coaching?

Posted on

I have some really great tips for all your hostess coaching this morning!

If I could say there’s one thing in your business that needs consistent work, it’s hostess coaching. You can have the best Facebook script in the world, the best party presentation under the sun…but if you’re not coaching your hostess-your party is going to FLOP!

I want to show you a few easy things you can do to get your BASELINE hostess coaching done in less than 5 minutes every single month!

STEP 1: Create a hostess group

Create a closed group on Facebook every single month for your “VIP Hostesses”.

In this group, you want to add:

  1. All of your hostesses for that month
  2. A Photo album with some photos they can share of customer specials and such.
  3. Copy of the customer special flyer
  4. Copy of the order form they can print if they run out
  5. Copy of digital catalog (that you’ve already uploaded to issuu.com)

And WHY would you want to have all that in a group?

How many times is your hostess at work and forgets her catalog?

How many times does she send you a message and say, “What was the customer special again?”  “What patterns does it come in?”

Stop wasting your time! And hers! Now you can immediately go to your VIP Hostess Group and tag her in that post she needs. BAM! LIKE A BOSS!

STEP 2: Create some Google Surveys

Every month, I create 3 google surveys for my team.

Hostess Coaching #1: gets sent the day she books her party

Hostess Coaching #2: gets send the day her party starts

Hostess Coaching #3: gets sent 3 days before her party ends

Here’s an example of this month’s Hostess Coaching #1: https://goo.gl/forms/YU0OxSYffCLbvplu1

Once these are set up, all you have to change every month is the MONTHLY SPECIAL! And our whole team has these awesome hostess coaching links they can TEXT, Facebook message, or post in the VIP Hostess Group!

STEP 3: Now schedule some posts

Now all you have to do is schedule a handful of hostess coaching tips into your group for the duration of the party! You want to give them some challenges and schedule those Google Surveys you just did!

Here’s some examples of my posts and how I scheduled them in 10 minutes, check this out:

So tell me below what YOUR favorite hostess coaching tip is?!

New Facebook Live “Snapchat Style” Features

Posted on

So I went to do a Facebook Live with my team…and it was a DISASTER!

I had so much fun playing with the new features that I couldn’t focus one bit!

There’s about 10-15 different features you can “dress” yourself with: unicorns, funky glasses, angel wings, astronaut helmets, super hero helmets, panda faces, and SO much more!

So check out the new features. I even sucked my husband into the video to come check it out. HAHA!!

And I’m pretty sure I need to go back and talk to my team, cause I don’t ever think I got out what I was actually trying to say. LOL!

3 Reasons You Need Twitter in Your Direct Sales Business

Posted on Updated on

I can you see you rolling your eyes over there young lady!

I know Twitter makes your eyes roll…I KNOW THIS.

But let me tell you 3 reasons you NEED to be on Twitter!

And then guess what? I’m going to share a FREE TRAINING with you to help you get on it and get this…understand it too! HAHA!!

FREE TRAINING CLICK HERE

Why you need twitter in your direct sales business

Reason #1- Everybody else is:

There are 313 million active monthly users. Hello…McFly…

First, if you even know who McFly is, I KNOW you’re rolling your eyes. Because our generation, for the most part, just doesn’t get it. But you know who does? The 313 million active monthly users. You really can’t afford NOT to be on there.

I’m not saying you have to become a Master Jedi Tweeter (that’s not really a thing)…I’m just saying, you need to be able to say, “yes, of course I’m on Twitter”…when those people who ask, ASK!

You don’t want to miss out on business because you can’t take one second a week to TWEET a 140 character message, come on! You can do it!

Reason #2- It’s SO easy:

Okay, I know it looks intimidating. I was on there for a year before I ever actually used it. And yes, my children taught me how to do it. But when you actually learn how to use it, it’s so easy!

I mean, come on, you can only type like two sentences for a tweet. It’s hard to make yourself sound too stupid in 2 sentences. Now Facebook, that’s another story. The more people type, well…you know…

Reason #3- You can totally fake it:

Did you know that you can be on there…and not really be on there? If you’re on Instagram, you can link your Twitter account and post to Twitter the SAME TIME you post to Instagram. So it LOOKS like you’re on Twitter, but you don’t have to be on there all the time!

For a very long time, I knew I had to be on there but I refused to conform. So that’s how I got started. Just linked my Instagram and twitter account. So in order to be legit, to GROW, and take some baby steps…I really encourage you to check out this FREE training on Twitter that’s happening tomorrow on Facebook.

Weekly Customer Group Theme for Facebook

Posted on Updated on

Recently I started to do a weekly theme in my customer group.

So I’m going to walk you through what i do!

Why have a weekly theme?

Because #1, you shouldn’t be selling all the time in your customer group. In fact, I rarely post selling things in my customer group at all anymore. If people are in your group, THEY KNOW YOU SELL YOUR PRODUCT! A group is a place where people meet that have common interests. And a group is a place to get to know your customers on a more intimate level. So STOP selling to them all the time in there!

If you have a selling post, post it onto your Facebook business page and then share it into your customer group. That’s what business pages are for, selling!

Let’s break down my theme days:

Monday: All week/month long, save funny stuff you see on Facebook or Instagram. Like fall out of your chair funny. And then go into Cinchshare and schedule those for Mondays for the whole month! We’re talking 4 Mondays a month, typically-do not message me and tell me some months have 5 Mondays or my D personality will roar LOL!

Tuesday: post an engagement post in your customer group. This is the best way to increase interaction and get to know your customers! Women are compelled to give their opinion!! If you ever want mine, just ask! 😉 And here’s an album from Cinchshare to help you get started if you need some engagement posts: CINCHSHARE ALBUM

Wednesday: This is where I create Pinterest boards and inform them of the holidays. So the first Wednesday I tell them about the holidays coming up for the next month and a half. So right now they know April Fool’s Day, Easter, and Mother’s Day. Simply keeping them informed. Then I make Pinterest boards and post around those themes. So I’ll have a practical jokes for your family board on Pinterest. I’ll have a Mother’s Day Gift Ideas and/or crafts board, and an Easter crafts and maybe ideas for toys for Easter basket. Things like that! Connecting them to my Pinterest and spending time with them there. And being USEFUL! Here’s an example of a Pinterest board of mine for April Fool’s Day Pranks: Melissa’s Board

Thursday: So I use this day for inspirational things and Life Hack type things. Kid President and Ted Talks are great ones. Think “woman on fire”, get them motivated

Friday: this is where I take a product of mine and do a Friday Product Spotlight. Make sure you’re not selling. You’re teaching them why they need this in their life. Take a product you have, take a great photo, watermark it, and then share it with a link to the exact product if they’re interested in learning more. I also do a weekly giveaway. I give them a task and anyone who does that gets entered in to win. For instance, today it will be, share this group with one person you know that would love to join. Ask them if it’s ok to add them and then post done below when you get them added! They also participated in a booking for next month this week. So those who booked also got a ticket for today’s drawing.

Saturday and Sunday I try and do personal photos of me and my family. Letting them get to know me as a person.

So there you have it! Create some interaction, learning, and FUN in your customer groups on Facebook.

How do you keep up?

The first week of the month, I go into Cinchshare and schedule all Mondays…on the first Monday. We’re talking 4 Mondays for the month. Takes me less than 5 minutes to schedule the whole month. On Tuesday, I’ll go in and schedule all Tuesdays for that month. And so on…

So it takes me 5 minutes a day to schedule all these in the first week of every month. BAM! Done!
