Social Media Training You Can’t Afford to Miss!

Posted on

Social Media. My LOVE and my PASSION!

There’s 3 types of people in Social Media:

1-I know nothing at all, and I think those who do… are deranged lunatics

2-I have every channel set up but I don’t actually know how to use them

3-They use them ALL and are madly in love!

Guess What?

We all started with knowing nothing at all. Even ME. But once you learn HOW to use them, you see the benefits TENFOLD in your business!

There’s a social media conference you need to know about. This is exactly what you’re looking for, no matter what stage you’re in through your social media journey. Check this out and then I’m going to give you details about everything you will learn at this conference.

This is for ALL consultants, all small businesses, every CEO who wants to do BETTER in 2017. You can do it. But not without the knowledge and skills to do it. What you will learn in ONE weekend, has taken me YEARS of my life to learn. This would be the BEST Christmas gift you could ever give to YOURSELF and your FAMILY.

November Thirty-One Facebook Script

Posted on Updated on

Here is my script for my November parties.

PLEASE NOTE 3 THINGS:

1. Do NOT use my links for my photo albums.

They are linked to my website. You will need to make your own albums in Google Photos. You can take my PICTURES and make your own albums! If you don’t know how to do that…here’s a video to show you:

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. Use Cinchshare to schedule your 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 “PinkCinch” 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)

**some of these pictures are my own, and some are pulled from other fabulous ladies who have shared their creative genius with the rest of us! Thank you if that is YOU.

10 reasons NOT to become a Thirty-One Consultant

Posted on

Here’s your Top 10 Reasons to NOT Become a Thirty-One Consultant:

#10: You have too many bags.

#SaidNoWomanEver

You will earn so much free product, incentive product, add on kits, hostess rewards, and SO much more…that if you have too many bags…this job simply isn’t for you.

#9:Your house is so organized, you don’t need any help. #INeedYouAtMyHouseStatIfThisIsYou

I have Thirty-One in every room in my house. And every cupboard. Thirty-One is the BEST organizing tool in my circus of angry, overactive, jacked up on fruit snacks, too much like their mother, children. If you don’t need some free and half price organizing products…best to stay clear of being a Thirty-One consultant.

#8: You don’t do gifts. 

I have to buy gifts ALL. YEAR. Long.

Like, every weekend there’s an:

“oops! mom i have a birthday party!”

or when you have 500 kids, heck, it’s probably all my own family’s…

teacher gifts

neighbor gifts

birthday gifts

wedding gifts

Christmas gifts

Halloween and Easter baskets

baby shower gifts…

If you don’t do gifts, don’t buy them, don’t need them, heck…maybe you don’t actually like PEOPLE to begin with…LOL Then this job is probably not your golden ticket to save gas money, time, and energy searching for them.

#7: You hate free trips

I like free trips. To all inclusive resorts. And trips to Miami Beach. And National Conference 3 day PARTY…but…if you don’t like to get away from your kids and everyday life…I need to know what medications you’re taking…and…you probably don’t need Thirty-One.

#6: You hate meeting new best friends

#Bahumbug

Some of my best friends in the world, are ladies I’ve met from Thirty-One. I don’t even know how I got through life before them. Pre-Thirty-One…ohhhh…scary thought!

If you would rather sit at home and watch re-runs by yourself, than be surrounded by a sisterhood of women who become your second family…well…you might not like our pretty pink bubble.

#5 You love going to your mailbox

Before Thirty-One, I hated going to my mailbox. Because there was always a bill that I couldn’t pay. I knew it. It was like walking the PLANK every time I went. Slow and steady…

Now, I pay ALL my bills for my family of 7, with my Thirty-One checks.

If you don’t want some extra pocket money, help paying for Jack’s baseball, making that car payment, taking a family vacation…then you probably don’t need us!

#4: You have more confidence than Kanye West

I’ve never been a public speaker, except when I’m yelling at my kids, and everyone can hear me…or felt at ease in a room full of women.

Since Thirty-One came into my life, I have confidence. I’m a woman #HearMeRoar

This girl got her girl back! I’m me. I’m not defined by insecurities or a lack of confidence.

But if you like to steal the mic like Kanye…you…might…not…need…us…

#3: You HATE giving back to your community

I was raised with a servant’s heart. My mother is an Earth Angel. So being part of Thirty-One and being able to invest my time and energy into fundraisers and causes that are true to my heart…has been one of the most rewarding things EVER!! Talk about filling your own cup!

But…if you’d rather be a hoarder and keep all that love and hugs and resources to yourself…I guess this probably isn’t the gig for you!

#2: You HATE being celebrated, encouraged, and rewarded

Thirty-One was founded on Proverbs 31. It’s all about celebrating, encouraging, and rewarding women. And from the moment you join, to the first time you call the call center, to your welcome call, to every little achievement you have within this company…you WILL be celebrated, you WILL be rewarded, and you WILL be encouraged along the way.

If you’ve got enough of that mushy stuff in your life with no room for more…you’re probably not ready for that tidal wave!

#1: You NEVER need to get away from your family

Like, okay…I love my family. I really do. 5 kids, another kid (i mean-husband), 3 cats, and a litter box that never gets cleaned…sometimes I just need to RUN…I mean…go to a party…I mean…go to work…

Sometimes a girl has just GOT TO GET AWAY!! And laugh, and eat people’s really good food they made, and meet new friends, and make money while doing it, and book MORE parties…so I can get away AGAIN…I mean…go to work again…

But…if you love them so much you want to hug them, and squeeze them, and never let them go…you probably wouldn’t like Thirty-One!

Hope you enjoyed! If you’re ready to join, you know where to find me!

And if you’d like more information on why you SHOULD join Thirty-One…check out this link;)

Thirty-One Hostess Coaching

Posted on

Hostess Coaching is one of the most important things you will do in your business. You can book a party all day long…but if you don’t COACH HER…she’s never going to succeed and she’ll never come BACK!

We do hostess coaching in order to increase the things WE need. And to provide this amazing customer service that she will be gushing about to her friends.

1. Hostess Coaching can do whatever you WANT it to do:
2. increase sales
3. increase recruiting
4. increase leads
5. increase bookings
6. celebrate
7. encourage
8. reward

I KNOW that you will see huge results if you focus on hostess coaching:

1. Your hostess will be telling her friends
2. Your sales will increase because your hostess is engaged
3. Your hostess will be happier because she’s informed
your hostess won’t walk around wondering where you’re at or what she’s supposed to do
4. you will get bookings because your hostess will not hesitate to share her positive experience with others
5. you can increase leads by having your hostess doing the work for you

So right now, I want you to EVALUATE your hostess coaching:

STEP ONE:

On a scale of 1-5 (5 being…I’m a hostess coaching rockstar and 1 being…I suck at it), rate where you are NOW with hostess coaching.

STEP TWO:

You should fully assess what you are doing in these categories below. Assess EACH # on how you’re achieving each step: EX: increase sales….I give her an incentive to hit certain levels of sales.

1. Hostess Coaching can do whatever you WANT it to do:
2. increase sales
3. increase recruiting
4. increase leads
5. increase bookings
6. celebrate
7. encourage
8. reward

STEP THREE:

I want you to start using a 3 step process in hostess coaching. Each month, these will update for the following month. If you are savvy and can create your own…DO IT. If not…here are 3 touch points I want you to have with your hostess and use can use these BLANK ones I created for our team:

1. THE DAY SHE BOOKS HER PARTY: You will send her a LINK in text to her cell phone AND on Facebook. We want to make sure she gets this: http://goo.gl/forms/VKMly3yZDc. This will help her know what to expect from YOU and keep her 100% informed. This also holds YOU accountable to do what you said and follow up with her each Monday.

2. THE DAY HER PARTY GOES “LIVE”: You will send her a link via text to her phone AND Facebook. We want to make sure she gets this: http://goo.gl/forms/9Ok8TZWNLl. This will give her all the tools she needs to share, the reminders to be successful, and keep her informed.

3. THREE DAYS BEFORE HER PARTY CLOSES: You will send her a link via text to her phone AND Facebook. We want to make sure she gets this: http://goo.gl/forms/GP5tRoqHSW. This gets her prepared, shows her the opportunity to join, and gives her the necessary steps to get a last minute “push” for orders.

How easy is that? Send a text message ever Monday with one simple link. And now she has all the tools to keep her excited.

Hostess coaching: The #1 complaint is that hostesses had no idea what was going on and there was no communication from the consultant. Don’t be that guy! A good referral is worth your weight in gold. But a bad referral will travel WAY faster and farther than a good one. Always remember that. Your hostesses are 110% worth your time. But…it doesn’t take much time at all.

October Thirty-One Facebook Script

Posted on Updated on

Here is my script for my October parties. I will be updating the “October Bundles page” when I get graphics for that!

PLEASE NOTE 3 THINGS:

1. Do NOT use my links for my photo albums.

They are linked to my website. You will need to make your own albums in Google Photos. You can take my PICTURES and make your own albums! If you don’t know how to do that…here’s a video to show you:

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. Use Cinchshare to schedule your 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 “PinkCinch” 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)

**some of these pictures are my own, and some are pulled from other fabulous ladies who have shared their creative genius with the rest of us! Thank you if that is YOU.

October Thirty-One New Consultant Facebook Script

Posted on Updated on

This is a script I made for our new consultants on our team.

No fancy tricks, no fancy links. Everything links back to the main Thirty-One site for them. This is a GREAT way to get your new consultants off to a great start with an easy Facebook script for them!

Let me start by saying PLEASE personalize the wording and make this unique to YOU!!

I use a social media scheduling site called Cinchshare: www.cinchshare.com to schedule all these posts for me in advance. Makes my job EASY!!

We obviously do not have a lot of the graphics for October because of the new holiday guide. So you’re going to want to add some of those in along with the bundle pictures for October!

I will have a DIFFERENT Facebook script for seasoned consultants with lots of links and fun stuff coming soon!

Hello everybody! My name is Melissa Fietsam, and I am an Independent Senior Executive Director with Thirty-One. I have been with the company for over 7 years. I absolutely love my job and want to introduce myself and Thirty-One. I have 5 crazy children (my oldest is in the picture with me) and I’m married to my high school sweetheart. I am a retired Registered Nurse and I used to work in the Emergency Room and teach LPNs on the side. I was able to supplement my income with Thirty-One, and now I’m a full-time mom and business owner!

I love Thirty-One because it gives women the freedom to pursue their dreams. It’s so much more than just a bag:) For those of you who don’t know…Thirty-One was founded on 31 Proverbs and is all centered around celebrating, encouraging, and rewarding women. And I can’t wait to tell you more about it!

Best Business Quotes to Live by

Posted on

A good quote does a body good. It ignites a fire in me sometimes that is just the amount of motivation I need to get back at it. So I decided to gather a list of motivational quotes that I can come back to. And thought you might like it too. These are some of my favorite authors of all time!:

  1. “If you believe you can, you probably can. If you believe you won’t, you most assuredly won’t. Belief is the ignition switch that gets you off the launching pad.” ~Denis Waitley
  2. If you really believe in what you’re doing, work hard, take nothing personally and if something blocks one route, find another. Never give up. Laurie Notaro
  3. “My life – my personality, my habits, even my speech – is a combination of the books I choose to read, the people I choose to listen to, and the thoughts I choose to tolerate in my mind” -Andy Andrews
  4. “Most people fail at whatever they attempt because of an undecided heart. Should I? Should I not? Go forward? Go back? Success requires the emotional balance of a committed heart. When confronted with a challenge, the committed heart will search for a solution. The undecided heart searches for an escape.” -Andy Andrews
  5. “Remember, whatever you focus upon, increases…When you focus on the things you need, you’ll find those needs increasing. If you concentrate your thoughts on what you don’t have, you will soon be concentrating on other things that you had forgotten you don’t have-and feel worse! If you set your mind on loss, you are more likely to lose…But a grateful perspective brings happiness and abundance into a person’s life.”-Andy Andrews
  6. “I will not waste time on second thoughts. My life will not be an apology. It will be a statement.”-Andy Andrews
  7. “There are no hopeless situations, sweetheart, only people who have grown hopeless about them. You still have choices you can make.”-Andy Andrews
  8. “It’s okay to be scared—do it scared. It’s okay to be unsure—do it unsure. It’s okay to be uncomfortable—do it uncomfortable. Just get started where you are. That is the attitude of the most disciplined and successful people on the planet.”-Rory Vaden
  9. “realize all the things you are doing that are not taking you where you really want to go. It will help you see all the things you are doing that are not helping you create the results you want in your life. Those things will become more and more obvious to you, and once you get to that point, you will most likely have another powerful insight: Until you accomplish your next most Significant priority, everything else is a distraction. That brings us to the critical question you have to always be asking yourself: “Is what I’m doing right now the next most Significant use of my time?” Is it the thing that is moving you toward creating the best results? Is it the thing that is moving you toward making your greatest contribution? Is it the thing that is moving you toward making the impact you want to make?”-Rory Vaden
  10. “Why do so many of us succumb to fear? Because it’s more convenient and more comfortable for us to let our dreams disappear than to muster up the discipline and the work ethic to go out and transform them into reality.”-Rory Vaden
  11. “Success is not owned, it is rented – and that rent is due everyday.”-Rory Vaden
  12. “Action is the cure for fear.”-Rory Vaden
  13. “You can tell the size of the man by the size of the problem that gets him down.”-Eric Worre
  14. “If you succeed in this business, it’s going to be you who creates that success, not me. And, if you fail in this business, it’s going to be you who creates that failure, not me. You are going to be the difference between success or failure. I’m here to guide you every step of the way, but I can’t do it for you. I’m here to work with you, but not for you.”-Eric Worre
  15. “Lou Holtz said it best: “In this world you’re either growing or you’re dying so get in motion and grow.”-Eric Worre
  16. “Freedom is possible, but it isn’t free.”-Eric Worre
  17. “We Become What We Think About.” -Earl Nightingale
  18. “The best the timid can hope for is to be unnoticed. Criticism comes to those who stand out”-Seth Godin
  19. “The job isn’t to catch up to the status quo; the job is to invent the status quo”-Seth Godin
  20. “If it scares you, it might be a good thing to try”-Seth Godin
  21. “Being aware of your fear is smart. Overcoming it is the mark of a successful person.”-Seth Godin
  22. “In a crowded marketplace, fitting in is a failure. In a busy marketplace, not standing out is the same as being invisible.”-Seth Godin
  23. “People with clear, written goals, accomplish far more in a shorter period of time than people without them could ever imagine.”-Brian Tracy
  24. “It doesn’t matter where you are coming from. All that matters is where you are going”-Brian Tracy
  25. “I’ve found that luck is quite predictable. If you want more luck, take more chances. Be more active. Show up more often.”-Brian Tracy
  26. “Successful people are always looking for opportunities to help others. Unsuccessful people are always asking, ‘What’s in it for me?'”-Brian Tracy

How I’m Sharing the New Thirty-One Fall Catalog With My Customers!

Posted on Updated on

I decided to try something new for sharing the fall catalog with my Thirty-One customers.

About 2  years ago, I posted…”Hey fill out this survey and everyone who does gets a catalog!” Well…that cost me TWO HUNDRED DOLLARS ((Insert>>>hole in pocket)). And I swore I’d never do it again.

So the following year, I created digital catalogs with www.issuu.com. And that worked GREAT! I actually had my highest sales ever-of over $55,000 for the fiscal year. But…I didn’t have the EXCITEMENT I had when I was mailing catalogs.

So here’s my solution for meshing the TWO!

I’m doing a giveaway of 10 catalogs mailed with a gift if they fill out this survey. And I’m also testing the waters with a new Holiday Layaway Program. Don’t ask me any details on that…cause I’m just as clueless as YOU;) But I will certainly let you know when I figure it out!!

Watch this quick video to see my survey I created with Google Forms (a free program):

Here’s to happy BOOKINGS!!

Love ya much!

**if you want more information on the digital catalog, you can check out this video:
