Easy Twitter Tips for your Direct Sales Business

Easy Twitter Tips for your Direct Sales Business

I know that the mere thought of Twitter makes some people twitch. I got it. It’s a platform that many don’t know very well and that scares you! But I can honestly say it’s one of the EASIEST social media platforms out there. And I want to show you how you can be ON there in 5 minutes a week!

Twitter Facts:

Here’s the facts: Twitter has 319 million monthly active users. Can you really afford to NOT be on it? I’m going to be brutally honest and tell you Twitter is not my favorite place to be. But with 319 million people actively using it every month, I’m smart enough to know I want my business included in those statistics. You have to at least have the bare minimum to make sure YOUR business is represented to those masses.

So let’s break it down:

I have made it my job to have at least ONE tweet a day on Twitter. And I’ve made it SO easy for you to duplicate what I’ve done with TWO 2 minute videos below. I’m going to show you how to increase your recruiting AND promote your Instagram account while you’re at it!

Why do you NEED to be on Twitter:

Well, here’s how I see it. Besides the masses of people on there everyday, the younger generation is HUGE on Twitter. So let’s say I meet a 20 something year old and I’m telling her about my business. She says, “Oh! Are you on Twitter?”

You say NO: You’ve just lost her. She knows that you are not her people. You were just straight kicked out of her tribe. Because that’s where she “lives”

You say YES: knowing you hate the platform, but you followed Melissa’s advice and take 5 minutes a week to follow these easy steps, you said YES! And now you have the young pup’s full attention and respect.

Now, I say this lightly. There are many “older folks” who LOVE Twitter. With 319 million active users, I’d say quite a few love it. And while I don’t LOVE it, you’d better believe I’m on it, just to say I AM.

So I’ve made it SO EASY for you:

Check out these two QUICK videos I’ve made for you to show you how you can use Cinchshare to schedule 3 weeks worth of tweets in like 5 minutes. Not even kidding. So easy you will have NO EXCUSE to not be on Twitter! You’ll be like…yeah, I’m cool, I’m hip, I’m on Twitter too 😉

Increase your RECRUITING and be on Twitter (2 min video):

Increase your Twitter game AND promote your Instagram page:

Now…go get your Twitter on!

Create an Offer on your Facebook Business Page

Posted on

This is one of the coolest tools on your Facebook Business Page!

You can create an OFFER! Check this out:

So what would you link it to?

  1. Link to your opportunity page. When someone asks you for information on the opportunity, you can share the link for this offer and it will send them directly to YOUR site!
  2. When someone asks about booking, you can send them directly to YOUR site with the booking tab on your site. So they can see the benefits of hosting a party with you.
  3. Create an offer for a tab that links to the customer specials on your site.
  4. Create a “landing page” on your blog or Facebook page that talks about joining a Hostess of the Month Club, hosting a fundraiser, literally anything you want!

How can you share it?

  1. When someone asks about information, you have it at your fingertips and you look incredibly professional!
  2. You can share these in your Facebook events
  3. You can share these in your customer group

Want to know something extra cool?

When someone clicks on this, they will get a REMINDER notification about whatever they clicked on!! How cool is that?!

Someone said they don’t have the “OFFERS” tab on their business page:

Go to your page

There is a menu on left hand side

Click on manage tabs

Click on “add tab”

Click on “offers”

BAM! You just added it to your page!

Now it’s time to go rock your business!

 

Hustle & Hugs,

Melissa Fietsam

Here’s how to start your Thirty-One Gifts Hostess of the Month Club!

Posted on Updated on

So if you’ve ever wondered how to start a Thirty-One Gifts Hostess of the Month Club, here’s your start!

Watch this video and see the exact video I posted in my customer group to get ready for our next round of filling a club for 2017:

The idea is simple.

You have 6 ladies who join a HOTM Club.

Each member agrees to purchase $35 a month, by the 13th of the month.

They can either purchase themselves or collect an order from a friend.

They get their own secret group on Facebook so you can spoil them.

Now some people do this for 12 months. Some people do this where they order every other month. I like to keep my simple and easy. $35 a month for 6 months. And they get an extra reward when they join a club for the SECOND time, or third time, and so on.

Why do this?

It’s guaranteed sales every single month.

I get recruits from every single group I do. Because they fall in love.

I have consistent sales to earn company incentives.

And I have loyal customers who are spreading the word about my business every single month.

TRY IT!

And here is a step by step guide to start your HOTM Club:

Booking Game in Your Facebook Customer Group

Posted on

Here’s a really fun way to get some bookings in your customer group!

Facebook LIVE videos are a GREAT way to:

  1. create a buzz

  2. get interaction

  3. get more views

  4. and increase your bookings!

I got these boxes at Dollar General for $1. You can essentially use anything to do this with. And the great thing is, you can mix it up with each holiday!

Make sure you’re showcasing the hostess and customer special.

Make sure you’re showing them their hostess packet they’ll get in the mail.

And make sure you let them know that all they have to do is collect $200 in orders and they’ll get:

  1. $25 in FREE
  2. any hostess exclusive item
  3. any item HALF PRICE!

SO EASY!! Have some fun with this! Put a Santa hat on, get excited!! When you’re excited…THEY ARE EXCITED!!

PRE-POST: So Here is an example of my Introduction:

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 8 years. I absolutely love my job and want to introduce myself and Thirty-One. I have 5 crazy children 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!

This is a picture from my FREE trip from Thirty-One, we went to an all inclusive resort at Hard Rock Punta Cana!

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!
