Theme Party Ideas for October

Posted on Updated on

Want a TON of October theme party ideas?


October theme parties

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 October! You can use these as themes AND posts within your parties!

Pumpkin Spice

Fall leaves

Harvest Festivals

Pumpkin Carving Party

Bobbing for Apples

Apple picking

Apple pie

Fall decorating


Fall foods like soups


Football & Chicken Wings


Breast Cancer Awareness

Costume Parties


Fall Frenzy

Hay Rides

Candy Corn

Pumpkin Pies

Fall Fashion: sweaters, jeans, boots



Thanksgiving for the Canadians

Domestic Violence Awareness Month

Beer Tasting Party

Haunted Houses

Trick or Treating

Pajama Party

Movie Nights

Canned Food Drives

Cool weather


Teal Pumpkins

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) October everyone!

Two Cool Tips for your Direct Sales Facebook Parties

Posted on

Here’s a couple of really cool tricks for your September Facebook parties!

In this video, I’m going to show you how to:

  1. Make a branded video to share from your Facebook Business Page
  2. Create an interactive customer special flier post in your Facebook party script

Creating a branded video

When you create this video, here’s a few things to remember:

  • Make sure you add captions. 90% of all videos on Facebook are watched in silent mode. TELL THEM WHAT IT’S ABOUT!
  • Make sure you add a branding graphic. YOU took the time to make it. So if someone shares it…they’re sharing it with YOUR business information.
  • ASK your customers to help share some of these! It’s a public post on your business page. So you could create a giveaway around your customer group helping you share this!
  • Add a picture of YOU to it, with one of the products! Make it personal and FUN!

Using ISSUU:

You can use issuu for SO many things!

  • Customer Special fliers
  • Recruiting fliers
  • Recruiting Brochure
  • Catalog PDF
  • Instructional PDFs you create for your team
  • The possibilities are endless!

Really stretch your imagination with these two tools and come up with some FUN things to do in September! We’re getting ready to start the biggest selling season of the year…it’s time to step up your game and stand out in your business.

Hostess Coaching Challenges

Posted on

Hostess Coaching is one of the most important things you can focus on in your business.

You do all this hard work to get these parties books and then many times, you don’t fail because of a script or hostess…you fail because YOU failed to do hostess coaching.

When you slack on hostess coaching:

  1. Your sales go down
  2. Your bookings go down
  3. Your recruiting goes down
  4. Your hostess experience goes down
  5. Your “repeat hostess” rate goes down

I could really go on and on…the effects of poor hostess coaching are endless.

So we’re trying something new this month. It’s a different form of the hostess coaching envelopes we’ve previously done.

Here’s the deal:

We’re going to have 5 hostess challenges. All income producing activities.

For each step they complete, they get a gift from me. It’s a very small and inexpensive gift, but COOL!

The biggest mistake you can make in hostess coaching is assuming your hostesses know what to do. They don’t.



Hostess Coaching #1:

Challenge your hostess to get $200 in orders BEFORE her party even starts.

Send her packet early and get her talking to people.

I created this post and printable to help mine get started:

CHALLENGE #1: Print this form (or just post in the comments below) your top 20 people. Message them all and let them know you’re having a 31 party that starts July 1st. And then ASK THEM if it’s ok to add them to the party! ONLY 20! That’s it!

All you need is 20 friends to join your party, interact, and have fun!

So your message might look like this:
Hey girl! I’m having a 31 party (all online). Is it okay if I add you to the party to take a look? It won’t start until July 1st but I wanted to make sure it would be ok to add you when it starts! My consultant has a pretty crazy line-up, she does things a lot different than the normal!

CHALLENGE #1: Text me a picture of your list completed or messages you sent your friends!

You can actually print this PDF by downloading it here:!AkYgT2PVhSEHjHtZMuITHkqfBTpl

Hostess Coaching #2:

This one I create in Mad Mimi, a messaging service. Mad Mimi is $10 a month. MailChimp is free. I use Mad Mimi and I created a video to show you exactly how I use it to hand my hostess a tool for Hostess Coaching #2.

She is challenged to send this text message/link to everyone she can and post on her timeline. The goal is collecting orders and getting people added to her Facebook party.

Here is my LINK:

And here is the video on how to create your own.

Hostess Coaching #3:

Challenge your hostess to go Facebook Live and ask her friends to join her party. IT WORKS! I’ve had huge success with having my hostesses do this!

Hostess Coaching #4:

Have your hostess send a message to everyone she knows with a LAST CHANCE TO ORDER:

  • Have her text message people
  • Have her post on her Facebook profile
  • Have her send people a Facebook message

Give her the words to say. Hand her a scripted message WITH A LINK to send to her friends. Make it easy and they will do it!

Hostess Coaching #5:

Book a party for 6 months from now with the new catalog.

Now you’re front loading your calendar like a BOSS.

There are MANY different things you can do with hostess coaching challenges, but these are the ones I picked for this month. I challenge you to think about what YOU need to get in your business and revolve your hostess coaching around that.

Happy Hostess Coaching!
