become a Thirty-One consultant

Host a Thirty-One Fundraiser!

Posted on Updated on

I LOVE to do fundraisers! They are one of my favorite parts of this “job” of mine!

I’ve been doing fundraisers for about 8 years now. I’m going on 10 years of being a consultant! So everything runs like clock work when you host a fundraiser with me! I want to show you all the fun and unique ways we can do fundraisers to help you and your organization or cause.

So how do I do them?

And HOW can I help YOU and your organization?

Here’s the TOP 5 ways we can run a fundraiser to benefit YOU!

The great thing about these things, is that you can COMBINE any and all ways that you love! Combining a few different ways will ensure your team’s success when it comes to hosting a fundraiser with me!

#1 Online Party

This is SO easy! We have a link to your fundraiser on my website and everyone can follow the link to order. 30% of all orders are donated to your organization. All participants get a packet of goodies with a catalog, fliers, and order forms.

#2 Home Show

You can host a home show and invite all your friends and family to see the product themselves and order there!

#3 Facebook Event

Facebook events are GREAT to show people product usage and great ideas on HOW they could enjoy some Thirty-One in their lives while donating to a great cause. I set the entire event up for you and all you have to do is invite your friends. All ordering is done online. Easy peezy!

#4 Trunk Party

You’re already at practice, or church, or somewhere with all your friends. Why not invite them all to a special night where they can literally see all the products and order at a convenient location where they’re already going to be!

#5 Team Party

Each parent takes a hostess packet and collects orders individually and we enter as one big party! This is the most successful way. Each parent has a link to their own orders. It’s easy to track. AND…parents have an incentive from ME if they hit a certain amount in sales!

*Combine this with the online and Facebook event, and there’s no limit to what you can earn for your organization!

Would you like more information about hosting a fundraiser with me? Fill out this quick survey below and I’ll contact you ASAP!

November Thirty-One New Consultant Facebook Script

Video 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!! And you can get a free 5 week trial using the code: PINKCINCH

**I would also add in BUNDLE pictures for November when those are up!

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

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!

All the ladies that invited you here tonight are so excited to share this information with you. Feel free to chime in with questions as we go, or at the end. Comment here and tell us who invited you tonight and what city and state you live in? ONLY OUR GUESTS! Not consultants! 🙂🙂

Welcome!! You ready to get this party started?!
Hi! My name is Melissa Fietsam, I will be co-hosting tonight’s event along with other wonderful directors and consultants on our amazing team. I’m a wife, a mom to 5 crazy kids and a Senior Executive Director with Thirty-One. I began my journey with Thirty-One in 2008 as a single mom to simply get my hands on that KIT! We were paying our bills but there was NEVER any extra money at the end of the month. I was simply looking for a little cushion after the bills were paid. Fast forward, 8 years later to today! I left my full-time employer in February 2012 to work my 31 business full-time instead. I am now making more money than what I made at my full-time jobs as a Registered Nurse, and am staying home with my babies! All because of a $99 pink box! It has truly changed my life…and I cannot imagine doing anything else! I’m so thankful for the flexibility of my “job” as a consultant to make this possible!

Melissa Fietsam, Thirty-One Ind. Senior Executive Director

POST 8:

So what are some frequently asked questions you need to know?

Here are a few Frequently Asked Questions answered for you.

1. I have a very busy life and I’m not sure if I can be gone at night. What are the shopping event options?

You can do JUST catalog parties and online parties if that is what fits your schedule.  A catalog party is when you give someone a hostess packet and they simply collect orders from their friends and family and turn them in to you. SO EASY!

2. Do consultants have a monthly/quarterly quota to stay active?

To stay active with Thirty-One, consultants only need to submit $200 in sales every rolling three months. A qualifying party for Thirty-One is only $200! Very easy to stay active!

3. Does the company supply consultants with a website? If so, what is the cost?

The cost is $14.95 a month.  And you can cancel that at any time. But this website allows your friends, family, and customers to order directly from your website AND order from your hostesses parties online!

4. How do I submit orders?

You submit orders via your personal website in what we call our “Back Office”.  Here you will place party orders, create online orders, and do business supply orders

5. Can my customers order from my website?

Yes! Your customers can go directly to your website and place an order

6. What is my initial cost to become a consultant?

There’s 2 ways to join right now. OPTION 1-kit free enrollment for $1 (no paperwork/no products). Or OPTION 2: It only takes $99 to purchase your enrollment kit!  It comes with over $400 in product you get to use for yourself and your parties. And those are yours to KEEP and USE! It also comes with all your order forms, catalogs, mini catalogs, and much more! Everything you need to get your business rolling!

7. Are there any other hidden fees?

No, Thirty-One does not charge you any other fees throughout the year.

8. What can I do to prepare while waiting for my kit?

You’ll want to jump right into some training we have just for our new consultants on our team! And you’ll want to spread the word about your new business.  Tell all your family and friends and start booking those parties!!!

I’m going to mail you a Hostess Packet so you have some catalogs and order forms to get started.

Your best bet is to have what I call a “launch party” at your house.  Invite everyone you know and do your own party when your kit arrives.  That way you can enter your first party, you’ll make all the commission, and you’ll earn all the free and half-price items as the hostess-so you can add to your kit for FREE!

9. How are Consultants paid at Thirty-One?

We are a paperless company!  You will need to set up for Direct Deposit. Consultants are paid twice a month. If you choose to have a check sent to you there is a $4 charge.  We get paid by direct deposit on the 10th and 25th of each month.

10. Does the company offer consultant incentives?

Yes, Thirty-One offers us challenges during various months to receive something FREE or have the opportunity to qualify for various things. I personally love a good challenge and it’s funny how your customers will help you get there too! You also have the chance to earn free TRIPS! And you’ll always have the chance to earn NEW free product when a new catalog is getting ready to launch. Thirty-One makes it easy to run your business with as little out of pocket as possible!

11. How do I collect money from customers?

As a consultant, you can accept cash, checks, or credit cards for the full amount owed including shipping and tax. Consultants are not charged for this service. Thirty One accepts all major credit cards.

12. Do I have to have a separate business checking account to become a Thirty-One consultant?

No. Although, by having a separate checking account for your Thirty-One business it may make it easier to track business income and expenses.

13. Is there a penalty or fee if I decide to get out of the business?

No. Just contact home office and let them know of your decision.  There is never a penalty for not selling…you have nothing to lose by trying!!!

14. Are there any support groups or training for Thirty-One consultants?

Yes! Yes! Yes! We have a phenomenal team page where you will get support and training from ALL your team members! We also have a Consultant Website for all Thirty-One consultants and it is updated daily with the latest information that you will need to run your business. You can get all the info on company announcements, consultant information, and online trainings. We also have a team page full of daily tips and marketing tricks for your business!

POST 9:

And I can’t leave you hanging without showing you the SECOND option to becoming a Thirty-One Consultant!

You can also pay $99 and get over $350 in products, plus all of your order forms, catalogs, mini catalogs, and everything you need!

So…help us out by answering 2 questions (please answer if you are NOT already a consultant with 31), and then we will have open Q & A for you in the next post:

1. Did you find this event helpful? Why or why not?

2. On a scale of 1-10, how interested are you in joining the Thirty-One family? There is no pressure, we just love to get feedback!

1-3 = I’m not really interested, but thanks for the info!
4-6 = Hmm…I want to join, but need to figure out timing
7-10 = Heck yeah! I can’t wait to join Thirty-One! I’m signing up!!

POST #12:

Q & A:
So…that was a lot of information…who has questions? Post them here if you do! I will keep checking back tonight and for a few days after if you think of things! That’s what we are here for. No pressure, just to answer your questions. You can ask us ANYTHING!! But don’t forget! The $1 enrollment only lasts from October 1st-14th!

Book 10 Holiday Thirty-One Parties!

Posted on

So here’s a team challenge for our team. We have a goal of booking 10 holiday parties to close by October 15th.

WHY?

10 Holiday parties at $200 each, equals $2000 in sales. BAM! Right there. So let’s get after it!

Check out this video:

Now you can see the exact video I posted in my customer group:

 

Here are a couple of graphics we will be using. This will be an ongoing push until the end of October. The goal is to get people in the holiday spirit! It’s time to rock out this fall season to:

  1. Help everyone earn the Leadership Incentive Trip starting in October
  2. Get our customers on board, that if they host a party they get to shop from the outlet sale early
  3. increase sales in general
  4. increase the # of people in our customer group
  5. increase the amount of people we’re in front of, therefore increasing our chances of recruiting
  6. and the more people we’re in front of, the more people who will book for NOVEMBER!

Each month will have the same idea. A “holiday package” with the goal of booking 10 Holiday parties each month!

It states a $200 party because that’s EASY. But we will be focusing on hostess coaching to (OF COURSE) get them higher sales than $200!

Score all around. Who’s ready for Melissa Fietsam and the holiday season? Cause I have a TON of ideas we’re pushing right now! You ready?!

2. Thanksgiving/Fall Craft Party (November)

3. Christmas Craft Party (December)

We’re always ASKING for something from our customers. But this is an event to build relationships with your customers. This is a time where we can organize something to give back to THEM. To laugh, get to know each other, and simply have fun! Building relationships are what it’s all about.

This should be a FREE event.

And want to make it even better? Turn it into a “give back” event. If they bring a certain item (like canned goods one month), they’ll be entered into a drawing for some giveaways. And then when you deliver those, you can tag them on Facebook and let them see they were a part of something bigger! How cool is THAT?!

Anyways, have FUN with it!! Cheers to the kick off of MY holiday working season! See ya soon!

Just a little fun graphic to get ya in the holiday mood:)

happy halloween

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 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!

TIPS:

**Have someone hold the phone for you while you do the Live event (if you can)

**Have a notecard with a bullet point of what you’re talking about

Here’s mine:

Thirty-One gifts live event

**I have a separate card with the top 10 products that I want to show. That way I don’t get off track or fumble now

**This month I’m doing the event in my Kitchen and giving a quick tour of some of my own organizing bins in the kitchen. So you could do a different room each month

**Get the Hostess Goody Bag on business supplies for $25 and that is ALL you will need. You can easily say $100 in prizes to give away. Make this a regular part of your business expenses each month. This is WORTH EVERY PENNY. It is getting NEW people added to my customer group every single month, it’s adding people to my HOTM Club every month, it’s BOOKING me parties, and it’s getting me recruits! DO IT! I order this goody bag on the 10th of every month for the following month’s prizes.

**FOCUS on what you want out of the group. My focus is always hostess of the month club. but decide what you want the most and FOCUS on that!

**Have the person holding the camera read through comments DURING the live event and relay them to you out loud so you can still interact with everyone. They love teasing and talking to my daughter Samantha now, because they know she’s the one behind the camera narrating:)

 

Have a great event ladies!! ANd do this EVERY month. Your business will thank you.

Fall Thirty-One Fashion Show

Posted on Updated on

Okay ladies! Time to show off the new fall Thirty-One catalog with a BANG!

And since I’m in Facebook jail, everyone’s gonna have to do this training right along with Team Trendy. LOL!

We’re going to do a fall fashion show right inside our customer group. NOT an event. I mean, posting an entire Facebook party right inside your customer group!

Watch this quick video to learn more about the Fall Fashion Show:

Step 1: get your customer group excited about some giveaways and a Facebook event:

Guess what?! We’re going to kick off the new fall catalog with a 4 day event RIGHT HERE in your VIP group! There’s going to be giveaways, you’ll get to see some new fall product, and have some FUN with me (your favorite Thirty-One consultant)!! So stay tuned!! Who’s excited to win some FREE STUFF?!

Step 2: Set up the 4 day August Facebook script in your customer group. Here’s the LINK to that 4 day event for you!

https://buymybagsblog.com/2016/08/01/august-thirty-one-facebook-script/

Step 3: You’re going to get yourself prepared for the LIVE event in your customer group:

The great Big Giveaway in August. And Melissa doesn’t CARE if you hate videos. Or you don’t like the way you look. Or you don’t know HOW to do a LIVE video. I’m telling you right now, you need to LEARN! Jump, then figure out how to land on your way down!!

Check out this link for more details on how to do the Great Big Giveaway:

https://buymybagsblog.com/2016/05/06/best-thing-i-ever-did-for-my-thirty-one-business/

Step 4: We have to integrate some incentives for your CUSTOMERS to start adding their friends to your customer page for the LIVE event

Here’s an example:

You ready to earn some more TICKETS?!

You can earn ONE ticket for EVERY 5 people you add to our VIP group here! Deal is, you have to ask their permission and you have to post below how many tickets you get so I can get your tickets added to the prize bucket!! So keep count and start asking your friends if they’d like to join in on the fun too!! Cause THEY will get a ticket just for JOINING this group as a new member!!

Thirty-One Gifts facebook event

**Now, you’re going to need to push this out a few times before the event. Posting a reminder about this is BIG! You can’t just post once and give up!

Step 5: Host your GREAT BIG GIVEAWAY EVENT!

Who’s IN?! Who’s ready to kick the fall catalog season into HIGH GEAR?

Who’s ready to earn their spot in a K group so you can do product testing?

Who’s ready to earn some Start Swell kits?

Who’s ready to double their paychecks this fall?

Let me give you a HINT…It’s not gonna happen on it’s own. Time to get to WORK! Time to get out of your box and work like Team Trendy works. BIGGER. Let’s do this ladies!!

#1 Tool For Direct Sales Consultants

Posted on Updated on

You HAVE to use a social media scheduling site if you’re running more than one or two shows a month on Facebook.

Okay, you don’t HAVE to do anything…but if you want to live your life the way it was intended…watch this video!

I can be out playing with my kids, not worrying about a single thing, while Cinchshare is posting into my party events for me:

Being able to schedule posts to your social media sites is INVALUABLE. And to have a reliable source like Cinshare.com to help you…that’s priceless. And just so you know, I get NO royalties or kick backs from CinchShare. Or anyone for that matter.

I will never promote something I do not believe in wholeheartedly. They are good people with a great mission who actually care. And for that reason alone…I LOVE THEM!
If you’d like to check them out, head to www.cinchshare.com and see what they can do for YOU! If you think this is cool, you should see how easily I schedule ALL of my hostesses Facebook parties on MY TIME!

Anyone who owns a business knows that social media is playing a HUGE role in our business these days. Whether you’re marketing, sharing invitations, communicating with customers, rolling out Facebook events, or running contests…if you’re not using social media, you’re missing some customers!

I am just going to walk through Facebook events at the moment. Working in Direct Sales, I host at least 7-10 Facebook events a month for my hostesses. Those FB events last 15 days, and I post 6 times a day for 5 of those days. Can you imagine how crazy I would be trying to remember all those posts? Maybe that’s YOU right now?

Cinchshare has made my life SO much easier. If you have never heard of it, let me give you the low down:

This is a #SocialMedia scheduling site that allows you to schedule posts for Facebook, IN ADVANCE (they also do a lot of other things that I have not explored yet). So you can schedule a week’s worth of posts on YOUR time. Sounds pretty amazing, right? IT IS!

I use Cinchshare to:

~post monthly reminders to my team

~when I’m up working late, I can post things for my closed customer page, and schedule them to post in the morning-when normal people are up😉

~I can schedule ALL posts to any events I have going on. So #1-I don’t forget to post them. #2-I’m never in a hurry. I can take my time and do it RIGHT. Consistency is the name of the social media game.

~I can post things to go on my main FB timeline. Maybe I have an hour to sit down and post a bunch of great quotes I found. But I don’t want to post twenty at one time. So I can schedule those to go out daily with Cinchshare.

It’s really a no brainer for anyone who needs to organize their time and their business. I’m a busy mom of five. I HAVE to do things on my time (if my kids let me.lol).

I highly encourage you to check it out. And with a one month free trial they’re offering right now, you really don’t have an excuse to NOT try it!

Here’s another way you can use Cinchshare:

I want to send a reminder on the last day of each month to our team.

It’s important for NEW consultants to see this every month. And it’s important to remind our seasoned consultants.

So instead of posting today and forgetting next month…I’ve already scheduled this exact post to go out on the last day of the month for the next YEAR. BOOM.

_______________________________________________________________

LAST DAY OF THE MONTH!
1
Alright…who are the late birds entering orders today?!
For those of you who have been around the block, you KNOW you don’t want to wait until the last minute to enter your orders.
1. All orders with the March customer specials MUST be entered by tonight or they will fall off their order. So if you have orders entered for next month already, make sure no one has this month’s special.
2. If you go to enter your orders at 11pm. And someone’s credit card gets declined, you’re…well…kind of screwed! Because it’s going to be awfully hard to get a new credit card from someone at 11pm. So get those orders in EARLY!
3. I make all hostesses aware that I refuse to enter orders on the last day of the month. So all orders have to be in the day BEFORE. That way I never have to deal with this!
Congratulations on a great month and I cannot wait to celebrate all of you for your accomplishments next month!! Now let’s get ready to ROCK next month!! WOOT WOOT!
