Okay, here’s something FUN to help you earn your Ready, Set, Sell…a PIE THROWING CONTEST!

The fun part is this: When we hit $600 in orders, I’m going to let one of my customers smash a pie in my face via Facebook LIVE. I will literally drive to their house with a chair and a pie. And I think I have a few customers who will be fighting over this honor. LOL!

Check out this video and then see the details below:

So this is just like a “Turkey Trot” with a social media TWIST.

You get 6 people to collect $100 in orders and you submit one big $600 party and split the hostess rewards between those 6 Hosts.

**Please note: you will want to CHANGE this graphic in some way so we don’t all get thrown in Facebook jail. Add a border, or your name to the bottom, or something to make it different before you upload it to your customer page!

Here’s the breakdown of what they earn if you hit $600 in sales:

1. Any item half off
2. $25 Gift Certificate
3. One hostess exclusive item
4. One hostess exclusive item
5. Back Pack or Take Two Tote
6. $31 Gift Certificate
7. $31 Gift Certificate
8. Any item half off

What we’re actually asking them to do is ALL social media. I created this PDF of our July bundles. And I’m asking my customers to simply sell TWO bundles (that will get them to $100 most likely): JULY BUNDLES PDF

Then I uploaded it to a site called ISSUU so I can send it as a TEXT.

Here’s a sample post in your customer group:


HEY HEY! It’s a Pie Throwing Contest! All you have to do:

~Is share this LINK with a few of your friends

~Sell 2 bundles

~And YOU get to pick one of these Hostess gifts below!!

~If you end up selling FOUR bundles, you get Hostess gifts 1-3!

It’s really that easy! You can text this link, post it on your Facebook page, email the link, or send in a Facebook message. You can also PRINT the bundles (when you click on the link) and show it to your friends at work or out and about!

Here is the “launch video” I posted in my customer page about this pie throwing contest. Just so you can hear my wording for it:


This really is one of the easiest things you can do. And one of the easiest things your CUSTOMERS can do.


**Let them know the first person to submit orders gets to PICK their hostess benefit. This encourages them to collect and get them in.

**Let everyone know that if they sell 4 bundles, they get all hostess benefits 1-3, don’t ASSUME they know that.

**Want to get fancy? PRINT the bundles and send it to them.

**Day 1-text them the link…Day 2-FB message them the link…Day 3-email it to them…with tips on how to message a few people, text a few people, etc. HELP THEM. Don’t just sit back and hope it turns out great.

**Hey…don’t forget YOU can sell them too. Text your favorite buying customers, customers with kids heading back to school…and SELL SOME YOURSELF!!

** I will start a texting blitz myself. By messaging all past hostesses first. And asking them if they want to give this a shot.

**I will probably post DAY 2 and let everyone know that anyone who turns in $100 in orders will get one of my very first FALL catalogs in the mail.


Hope this helps someone earn their RSS!!
