Graphics: How to Create Amazing Content

Posted on Updated on

Have you ever looked at someone else’s graphics and said, “How did they DO that?!”. Or…”Where in the world do they find those cool graphics?”.

Well, I’m no expert, but I get by pretty well. So I want to show you some things I’ve done and some tips and tricks to help you get started!

First, you can’t do ANYTHING worth doing, without investing some time into it. It took a lot of practice and a lot of research. Was it HARD? No. Was it FRUSTRATING at times? Yes. But was it worth it? Heck yeah!

Here’s some graphics I created with a program called Canva. It’s a FREE website where you can create your own graphics. I’m going to give you LINKS to the video tutorials that helped me get started designing great graphics.

And I learned everything from a Cinchshare Facebook post that I’ll share with you below.

Rules of Graphics & Where to Find Them:

So, first…let me throw out some etiquette tips on graphics. NEVER, and I mean NEVER take someone else’s graphic and change the information to your own and use it. The ONLY exception to that is if you have permission from the original creator to do that. This goes for Pinterest, Facebook, Instagram, blogs, anything…do not take someone else’s hard work and claim it for your own without permission!

Now…let me send you to a Cinchshare post that talks about WHERE to find great FREE graphics that you can edit for your own business. And you’ll want to follow that page while you’re over there. Cause…those people are smart peeps. And they post a lot of really great stuff you don’t want to miss! Here’s the link to the post that tells you how to find free graphics:

FREE GRAPHICS: https://scontent-iad3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/14494657_1337316782960250_5533310808981908782_n.jpg?oh=815bde544d975b46f6a9e7edbafb6c64&oe=590E1B18

Now How to Get Started Creating & Editing in Canva:

I had NO idea what I was doing in Canva. I was a die hard fan of Picmonkey.com. And I still use Picmonkey on occasion, but if you want amazing, professional, classy photos, I highly suggest Canva.com.

So here are the people at Cinchshare again, making my life easier and teaching me how to reach for the stars! Heili Erika, pretty cool kat, walks you through a series of videos on how to get started on Canva. And…you can actually use Canva INSIDE of your Cinchshare account if you have one.

So check out this playlist on YouTube and do it when you have TIME. This will not be an overnight success. But you will get better and better every single time you create something. I learn something new every single day! And I LOVE IT!! This playlist will get you started and there’s tons more on YouTube. Don’t know how to do something? Search YouTube for the answer. You have zero excuses anymore!!

So here’s to all you creative monsters who have been hiding behind, “I just can’t do that”…now you CAN. There goes Melissa…taking your excuses away AGAIN! #YouAreWelcome 🙂

Love ya, Hugs,

One Week of Simplifying Your Thirty-One Business-Part 5

Posted on Updated on

This week we’ve been talking about simplifying your Thirty-One business for the new fiscal year!

Today…we’re going to talk about something that will save you so much TIME! And time…equals MONEY.

1

One of the BEST things I ever did for my business was discover cinchshare.com. Actually, a friend shared it with me.

1

Cinchshare is a social media scheduling site.

I hold at least 8-10 Thirty-One parties a month. And 90% of them run at the SAME TIME.

There is no possible way I could keep up with posting in every single event. NO WAY.

Before Cinchshare:

  1. I was a hot mess
  2. I was missing posts in parties
  3. i was worrying all the time about missing something because i was so scattered brained
  4. i was stressed out to the MAX, to the point where I HATED doing Facebook parties

After Cinchshare:

  1. I schedule every single Facebook party post in MY time. When the boys are napping. Or I have 20 minutes of peace and quiet. I can schedule an entire month’s worth of parties in 20 minutes.
  2. I can pin my Facebook posts to Pinterest
  3. I can schedule monthly posts and trainings to our Thirty-One team
  4. I am SO much happier knowing I have complete control over what’s going on in my business
  5. i’m never stressed out about doing Facebook parties and I’ve been doing more than EVER because you know what?! I have the TIME to develop new ideas for them and have FUN with them!
  6. also, because I’m scheduling trainings and party posts…I’m actually more INVOLVED with comments and posting!!

I highly encourage you to TRY Cinchshare. It is hands down one of the best business tools I have ever used. I have NEVER had a problem. Not ONE. And any time I have a question, I message the HELP button on the site and guess what?! A real LIVE person answers you!! Their customer service is TOP NOTCH!

Cinchshare will cost you $10 a month. The BEST $10 you ever spent. The cost of a couple cups of coffee a month. For peace of mind. You don’t see me promote a lot of things or people on this page because I have to 100%, wholeheartedly believe, without a doubt…that they deliver 100% customer service and that they will take care of who I refer them to. I take pride in my advice to you. And this…will change your business! Well worth it!

If you’d like to check them out…here’s a link to get started!! You won’t regret it! I can promise you that!!

https://www.cinchshare.com

Here’s a video that will show you some things you can do also!

Create a GIF to Tell a STORY When You Host Your Thirty-One Facebook Parties!

Posted on Updated on

Create your own GIF and tell a STORY when you introduce yourself during your Facebook parties!!!!!!!!!!

Check out mine here…

https://imgflip.com/gif/15epxw

Here’s how you can make your OWN!!
https://imgflip.com/images-to-gif

 

This is perfect to tell a STORY about yourself instead of just posting ONE picture. That’s like saying…I’ll give you one WORD to describe yourself. Hard to do, right? So why should we have to with a PICTURE?!

This was the easiest thing in the world to do! Upload images, add text, set your speed….BAM! You have your own GIF. Coolest new toy EVER 🙂 I bet I can come up with LOTS of things to use with this:

-customer specials…post all the usage pictures for each special

-recruiting seeds

-booking seeds

-THANK YOU’s to your customers…

oh…the places we can go…. 🙂

Christmas Dice Booking for Your Thirty-One Parties

Video Posted on

Oh my gosh! This was SO much fun! So I took the Dice Booking Game and added a small twist with Christmas present boxes. And my guests LOVED the boxes!

My goal with the boxes was to get them in the spirit of GIFTING and thinking about Christmas presents! It was cute, fun, and festive. And I’ll be using this through the holidays! Find the rules below, but watch this video first!

Supplies:

1. fiesta bowl or vegetable tray…whatever that thing is called (from the original game):

1

2. Eleven Christmas boxes. I found mine at Dollar General for $1

1

3. Large colorful dice (or regular dice if you want to be that guy. Just kidding! Regular dice are fine!)

4. Some slips of paper to insert your prizes into the boxes. I used cardstock and made sure they fit in there pretty tight so they would stay in the bottom.

Prizes:

It is VERY important that you use these exact #’s for the prize boxes. Someone out there has done the statistics of how many times a # was likely to be rolled. So, for instance, the #2 was the least rolled #. So you’re going to want to put your Gran Prize in that box!

#2- Grand Prize

#3 and #4- Prizes

#’s 5-9 are Book a Show

#’s 10-12 are prizes

What do you give away as the prizes?:

~key fobs

~$5 off your order

~free customer special (only if it’s cheap) and write “with a $35 purchase”

~Pick a prize (have a prize box with lots of little goodies from your company-key fobs, nail files, things from dollar bins at Target. etc)

What happens if two people get the same number?:

Nothing! When someone rolls the dice and gets their number, they open the box and see what their prize is. And then they put the box back on the table! So it’s ok if someone rolls the dice and gets the same number.

How does this compare to my purse booking game?:

I will use them BOTH! They are both equally effective when it comes to booking. However, I like this dice booking game because I don’t have to switch out the prizes or anything. They just stay in the box. It’s cheap, but it’s adorable and kind of irresistible, so they can’t stand not to play!

The biggest time consumption I had with the purse game is that I had to change out the slips in them. And with 20 purses, it is sometimes a chore. Effective, but a chore.

So…final conclusion is that I will alternate this Dice Booking Game AND the purse booking game. When I have a party with a ton of repeat guests, I’ll be able to switch it up a little!

 

Happy Booking Ladies!!

Matchbox Dice Booking Game for Your Direct Sales Parties

Video Posted on

I found the most AWESOME booking game for my Thirty-One home parties! I’m going to call it the Matchbox Dice Booking Game, cause I like to make up words. LOL!

It was so easy and so fun for the guests! I saw a blog post from Deb Bixler that sparked the idea, so I knew I had to make it my own! Watch this video to learn more and then find major details below on how to make your own, what prizes go in the boxes, etc.

So here is what it all looks like

(now there’s a #1 box in that picture. You won’t need a #1 box)

1

Supplies:

1. fiesta bowl or vegetable tray…whatever that thing is called 🙂

2. Matchboxes (I found mine at Hobby Lobby. They were made by Paper Studio)

3. Large colorful dice (or regular dice if you want to be that guy. Just kidding! Regular dice are fine!)

4. Some slips of paper to insert your prizes into the boxes. I used cardstock and made sure they fit in there pretty tight so they would stay in the bottom.

Prizes:

It is VERY important that you use these exact #’s for the prize boxes. Someone out there has done the statistics of how many times a # was likely to be rolled. So, for instance, the #2 was the least rolled #. So you’re going to want to put your Gran Prize in that box!

#2- Grand Prize

#3 and #4- Prizes

#’s 5-9 are Book a Show

#’s 10-12 are prizes

What do you give away as the prizes?:

~key fobs

~$5 off your order

~free customer special (only if it’s cheap)

~Pick a prize (have a prize box with lots of little goodies from your company-key fobs, nail files, things from dollar bins at Target. etc)

What happens if two people get the same number?:

Nothing! When someone rolls the dice and gets their number, they open the box and see what their prize is. And then they put the box back on the tray! So it’s ok if someone rolls the dice and gets the same number.

How does this compare to my purse booking game?:

I will use them BOTH! They are both equally effective when it comes to booking. However, I like this matchbook dice booking game because I don’t have to switch out the prizes or anything. They just stay in the box. It’s cheap, but it’s adorable and kind of irresistible, so they can’t stand not to play!

The biggest time consumption I had with the purse game is that I had to change out the slips in them. And with 20 purses, it is sometimes a chore. Effective, but a chore.

So…final conclusion is that I will alternate this Matchbox Dice Booking Game AND the purse booking game. When I have a party with a ton of repeat guests, I’ll be able to switch it up a little!

And if you haven’t tried the Purse Booking Game, you’ll want to check that out too:

Tracking Your Hostesses in Your Direct Sales Business

Video Posted on Updated on

I wanted to show everyone a system that has worked VERY well for me in tracking my hostesses each month. It helps to keep everything I need for my hostesses: orders, contact information, and all information pertaining to her Thirty-One party. First, check out this video where I explain how I use this to track my Thirty-One hostesses: The best thing about this hostess coaching tracking binder, is that I can take it ANYWHERE. So when I’m going to pick up kids, or going out of town, or sitting at practice for one of the kids…I can take this with me and get a TON of work done! Working smarter not harder! It’s SO easy to take control of your hostess coaching for your Direct Sales business. Would you like my hostess tracking sheet? Cause you can have that too. We’re all in this world for a reason. My reason is to help others. So enjoy my hostess tracking sheet. I LOVE it because it allows me to track mileage, outside orders, hostess information, gifts, etc. GREAT for tax purposes too! I found this a few years ago from someone else, I wish i knew who to give credit to. But I adapted it to fit my personal hostess coaching needs with checkboxes and other things like that. So thank you to whoever posted the original file for me! HOSTESS TRACKING SHEET: Click here: https://buymybagsblog.wordpress.com/melissas-shared-documents/. It’s under Hostess Documents and it’s called Hostess Tracking Sheet I use the Arc system. This is a folder you can ONLY buy at Staples. It costs $10.49 for the started binder looking thingy-ma-jig. This is mine, and there’s a link below it to show where you can purchase it online: 4 PURCHASE THIS AT STAPLES FOR $10.49:  http://www.staples.com/M-by-Staples-Arc-Customizable-Hibiscus-Design-Notebook-System-Black-White/product_886420?cid=PS:GooglePLAs:886420&ci_src=17588969&ci_sku=886420&KPID=886420&kpid=886420&gclid=Cj0KEQjw1duqBRDPlLKsuJCUiuABEiQAxgHwJ3TXKYndWJDfe_WiXvQIhmW9Grg2aGhdpClbgjl1-KEaAsLk8P8HAQ I also use these zip pocket folders that go into the Arc. I like them because I can keep all their orders and their hostess tracking sheet nice and handy. Each hostess has their own pocket. So you can decide what your average # of hostesses a month is, and then buy a few more than that, just in case you’re having a rock star month;) This is mine below, just showing you how the pockets fit in there. The link to purchase them is below the picture: 3 PURCHASE THE ZIP POCKETS FOR $6.00 (2 PACK):  http://www.staples.com/M-by-Staples-Arc-System-Poly-Zip-Pockets-Clear-8-1-2-x-11-/product_321297 I also like having my calendars in there, so I bought the page protectors to go in them too. They come in a pack of 25, but they’ve lasted me a year, because I don’t use these for much else than the calendar. You may or may not want this in yours. Just showing you mine! I print the calendars by simply googling “free calendars” and printing them on my own. I like to be able to mark parties, important dates, etc. I really don’t know WHY…but I can only find those Arc specific page protectors in the actual store. I have not been successful in finding them online.  2   And the last picture is showing you my hostess tracking sheets folded in half, in the zip pocket.  5   Happy hostess tracking!!

Watch this video below, and then scroll on down to grab the pictures of my binder, so you can make your own binder! AND…don’t forget the files I’ve uploaded for you on the “Melissa’s Shared Documents” tab on my blog too. 

Now you’re all set! You have no excuse to NOT work your business in 20 minutes a day. Everyone has 20 minutes a day!!

Here is my Power Hour Binder:

8 tabs with pockets, in a 1 inch binder:

1. Booking

2. Recruiting

3. Hostess (home show)

4. Catalog (catalog parties)

5. Trots (turkey trots)

6. Fundraisers

7. VIP

8. Follow Up

I love the pocket dividers because I can put my extra papers in there. I can also add papers to the pockets, so I could throw them in there unitl I had time to work on that portion of my business. So any leads, I just throw them in the pocket 🙂

I got all my supplies at Walmart

I have 100% faith that anyone can do this. YOU can do this! All you need is to stop making excuses of why you can’t find time, and figure out when you CAN find 20 minutes to get it done!

Happy Power Hour ladies!

Here is the group description:

Welcome to DS-Synergy! So what’s this group all about?

This group is for Direct Sellers of ALL companies.

Lurker’s Beware:
this page is an interactive community. If you are just hanging around to suck ideas out of people who are sharing, you will be deleted periodically. We got “people”, so we have ways of seeing who is not participating. We want to LEARN from each other. And in order to do that you must share.

This is a place where you will find:

~Weekly focused points…and launch pad for sharing
~Monthly training webinars and podcasts
~Sharing of ideas from all direct sales companies so we can work together to improve our businesses
~A community of people who believe in EMPOWERING each other and an environment free of COMPETITION

This is NOT a place for:
~Selling
~Recruiting
~Booking
~Or any NEGATIVE posts

**any of the above will be deleted and you will be locked from the page immediately, with no further consideration to rejoin. So don’t be that guy!

Welcome to a new generation of sharing and empowerment!!

And INVITE YOUR TEAMS!! This is for EVERYONE!! 
And share this post!! 🙂
