So what do you DO with this NOTE?
- Share with your hostess: You want to share this with your hostess and let her know she can share it onto her main timeline and shout about her party. She can email the link, she can Facebook message it, text it, whatever she wants! Just copy the URL at the top of the NOTE or simply click the SHARE button ON the NOTE.
- You can schedule a post with Cinchshare to go into your actual Facebook party ON YOUR BUSINESS PAGE. This will only work if you do your parties on your business page. Schedule to share the NOTE in the party and then do a giveaway for anyone who shares that note onto THEIR timeline to tell everyone their friend is hosting a party and see if they would like to order!
BAM! You just worked your business like a BOSS!
Have fun creating your NOTES today ladies!
I’m so excited to announce that I’ve teamed up with Cinchshare for a Facebook training!
I’ve been doing fundraisers for about 7 years now in my Thirty-One business. I do them every single month and I can’t wait to tell you WHY!
We’re going to teach you everything from WHY you want to have them and what they can do for your business, to HOW to find them!
And then we’re going to teach you how to make the most of them and FIND them! It’s one thing to book a fundraiser, but when you understand the matrix behind what to actually DO with a fundraiser-you can increase your sales, your recruiting, and hit all those company incentives on a monthly basis!
So if you’d like to join this FREE TRAINING on how to increase your sales with fundraisers, CLICK BELOW to join us this Tuesday!
I love all the new integrations happening on Instagram and Facebook!
And one thing that is AMAZING, and everyone needs to know about it, is that you can reply to a comment, post a comment, or trash a comment on your Instagram account, right from your Facebook BUSINESS PAGE!
Check this out!
- Click on your INBOX on your Facebook Business Page
- Then Click on the Instagram icon
- Now you can reply, comment, or trash comments all from your Facebook “back office”.
This is kind of amazing on so many levels. If you’re not utilizing your inbox for your Facebook business page, I’m going to guess you’re missing notifications!
Let me show you WHY I love using the inbox tab on my Business Facebook Page!
Answering people on posts!
For instance, I’m running 6 Facebook parties right now. Instead of clicking on every single party and checking every single post, I go to my inbox and I can see EVERY post and EVERY comment. But the cool thing, I can ANSWER them all right from my inbox. So I’m not chasing posts and scrolling and trying to go through a million pages.
This helps me:
- Save time
- Not MISS notifications
- Work my business like a #GirlBoss
Check it out and work your business SMARTER not HARDER!
This is just one more reason you should be hosting your Facebook parties on your Facebook business page. I firmly believe this is where they need to be in order to run your business efficiently.
- You can check all party posts and comments in one place
- Your events are public, so your hostess AND guests can share the posts
- YOU can share the posts via Twitter
- It is ALL searchable content on the web, which gives you more exposure for your business and brand
- You can easily find all your past events and post in them occasionally
I challenge you today to RETHINK how you’re hosting your Facebook parties!
I have some really great tips for all your hostess coaching this morning!
If I could say there’s one thing in your business that needs consistent work, it’s hostess coaching. You can have the best Facebook script in the world, the best party presentation under the sun…but if you’re not coaching your hostess-your party is going to FLOP!
I want to show you a few easy things you can do to get your BASELINE hostess coaching done in less than 5 minutes every single month!
STEP 1: Create a hostess group
Create a closed group on Facebook every single month for your “VIP Hostesses”.
In this group, you want to add:
- All of your hostesses for that month
- A Photo album with some photos they can share of customer specials and such.
- Copy of the customer special flyer
- Copy of the order form they can print if they run out
- Copy of digital catalog (that you’ve already uploaded to issuu.com)
And WHY would you want to have all that in a group?
How many times is your hostess at work and forgets her catalog?
How many times does she send you a message and say, “What was the customer special again?” “What patterns does it come in?”
Stop wasting your time! And hers! Now you can immediately go to your VIP Hostess Group and tag her in that post she needs. BAM! LIKE A BOSS!
STEP 2: Create some Google Surveys
Every month, I create 3 google surveys for my team.
Hostess Coaching #1: gets sent the day she books her party
Hostess Coaching #2: gets send the day her party starts
Hostess Coaching #3: gets sent 3 days before her party ends
Here’s an example of this month’s Hostess Coaching #1: https://goo.gl/forms/YU0OxSYffCLbvplu1
Once these are set up, all you have to change every month is the MONTHLY SPECIAL! And our whole team has these awesome hostess coaching links they can TEXT, Facebook message, or post in the VIP Hostess Group!
STEP 3: Now schedule some posts
Now all you have to do is schedule a handful of hostess coaching tips into your group for the duration of the party! You want to give them some challenges and schedule those Google Surveys you just did!
Here’s some examples of my posts and how I scheduled them in 10 minutes, check this out:
So tell me below what YOUR favorite hostess coaching tip is?!
So I went to do a Facebook Live with my team…and it was a DISASTER!
I had so much fun playing with the new features that I couldn’t focus one bit!
There’s about 10-15 different features you can “dress” yourself with: unicorns, funky glasses, angel wings, astronaut helmets, super hero helmets, panda faces, and SO much more!
So check out the new features. I even sucked my husband into the video to come check it out. HAHA!!
And I’m pretty sure I need to go back and talk to my team, cause I don’t ever think I got out what I was actually trying to say. LOL!
I can you see you rolling your eyes over there young lady!
I know Twitter makes your eyes roll…I KNOW THIS.
But let me tell you 3 reasons you NEED to be on Twitter!
And then guess what? I’m going to share a FREE TRAINING with you to help you get on it and get this…understand it too! HAHA!!
Reason #1- Everybody else is:
There are 313 million active monthly users. Hello…McFly…
First, if you even know who McFly is, I KNOW you’re rolling your eyes. Because our generation, for the most part, just doesn’t get it. But you know who does? The 313 million active monthly users. You really can’t afford NOT to be on there.
I’m not saying you have to become a Master Jedi Tweeter (that’s not really a thing)…I’m just saying, you need to be able to say, “yes, of course I’m on Twitter”…when those people who ask, ASK!
You don’t want to miss out on business because you can’t take one second a week to TWEET a 140 character message, come on! You can do it!
Reason #2- It’s SO easy:
Okay, I know it looks intimidating. I was on there for a year before I ever actually used it. And yes, my children taught me how to do it. But when you actually learn how to use it, it’s so easy!
I mean, come on, you can only type like two sentences for a tweet. It’s hard to make yourself sound too stupid in 2 sentences. Now Facebook, that’s another story. The more people type, well…you know…
Reason #3- You can totally fake it:
Did you know that you can be on there…and not really be on there? If you’re on Instagram, you can link your Twitter account and post to Twitter the SAME TIME you post to Instagram. So it LOOKS like you’re on Twitter, but you don’t have to be on there all the time!
For a very long time, I knew I had to be on there but I refused to conform. So that’s how I got started. Just linked my Instagram and twitter account. So in order to be legit, to GROW, and take some baby steps…I really encourage you to check out this FREE training on Twitter that’s happening tomorrow on Facebook.
They’re the experts. Cinchshare is going to teach you what Twitter is, how to use it, and WHY you need to use it! And they’ll break it down so you can do it all in baby steps!
This is a training you can go back to at anytime! So click GOING on the event, so you can always find it whether you catch it LIVE or later on!
And as always, I’m here if you have any questions!
Tweet ya later 😉

I’m getting ready to start one specifically for Directly Social, so stay tuned!
Recently I started to do a weekly theme in my customer group.
So I’m going to walk you through what i do!
Why have a weekly theme?
Because #1, you shouldn’t be selling all the time in your customer group. In fact, I rarely post selling things in my customer group at all anymore. If people are in your group, THEY KNOW YOU SELL YOUR PRODUCT! A group is a place where people meet that have common interests. And a group is a place to get to know your customers on a more intimate level. So STOP selling to them all the time in there!
If you have a selling post, post it onto your Facebook business page and then share it into your customer group. That’s what business pages are for, selling!
Let’s break down my theme days:
Monday: All week/month long, save funny stuff you see on Facebook or Instagram. Like fall out of your chair funny. And then go into Cinchshare and schedule those for Mondays for the whole month! We’re talking 4 Mondays a month, typically-do not message me and tell me some months have 5 Mondays or my D personality will roar LOL!
Tuesday: post an engagement post in your customer group. This is the best way to increase interaction and get to know your customers! Women are compelled to give their opinion!! If you ever want mine, just ask! 😉 And here’s an album from Cinchshare to help you get started if you need some engagement posts: CINCHSHARE ALBUM
Wednesday: This is where I create Pinterest boards and inform them of the holidays. So the first Wednesday I tell them about the holidays coming up for the next month and a half. So right now they know April Fool’s Day, Easter, and Mother’s Day. Simply keeping them informed. Then I make Pinterest boards and post around those themes. So I’ll have a practical jokes for your family board on Pinterest. I’ll have a Mother’s Day Gift Ideas and/or crafts board, and an Easter crafts and maybe ideas for toys for Easter basket. Things like that! Connecting them to my Pinterest and spending time with them there. And being USEFUL! Here’s an example of a Pinterest board of mine for April Fool’s Day Pranks: Melissa’s Board
Thursday: So I use this day for inspirational things and Life Hack type things. Kid President and Ted Talks are great ones. Think “woman on fire”, get them motivated
Friday: this is where I take a product of mine and do a Friday Product Spotlight. Make sure you’re not selling. You’re teaching them why they need this in their life. Take a product you have, take a great photo, watermark it, and then share it with a link to the exact product if they’re interested in learning more. I also do a weekly giveaway. I give them a task and anyone who does that gets entered in to win. For instance, today it will be, share this group with one person you know that would love to join. Ask them if it’s ok to add them and then post done below when you get them added! They also participated in a booking for next month this week. So those who booked also got a ticket for today’s drawing.
Saturday and Sunday I try and do personal photos of me and my family. Letting them get to know me as a person.
So there you have it! Create some interaction, learning, and FUN in your customer groups on Facebook.
How do you keep up?
The first week of the month, I go into Cinchshare and schedule all Mondays…on the first Monday. We’re talking 4 Mondays for the month. Takes me less than 5 minutes to schedule the whole month. On Tuesday, I’ll go in and schedule all Tuesdays for that month. And so on…
So it takes me 5 minutes a day to schedule all these in the first week of every month. BAM! Done!
If you’re ready to take on Cinchshare, you can check it out and try it for FREE for 37 days using promo code : CINCHFREE
I make nothing from that code! I share because I CARE about you and I want you to run your business, not have your business run YOU!

So many people sign up for Direct Sales with the assumption that they won’t really have to work.
If you’re in this for a hobby, that is an absolute truth: you really don’t have to work at it.
If you’re in this to make an income or achieve a financial goal: you couldn’t be farther from the truth.
You can’t expect to make a substantial difference in your finances if you’re not willing to put in the work to get it.
Using Power Hours can help you run your business in 20 minutes a day.
If you’re not willing to work 20 focused minutes a week, in certain areas of your business, then quite frankly-you don’t DESERVE that paycheck you’re complaining about NOT GETTING!
People ask me ALL THE TIME…how do you do it. I’m sorry to inform you, there is no secret. It’s hard work. That’s it.
Tried and true, get up and get to work every single day. The RENT IS DUE EVERY SINGLE DAY. You want to make money in this business, PUT IN THE WORK. People seem to want the benefits without the commitment. You can’t have one or the other. You get exactly what you put into this business. Plain and simple. I don’t do magic tricks. I don’t do anything YOU can’t do. I don’t skate by on my good looks and charm, trust me, I live 90% of my life covered in babies bodily fluids and food. You just have to get to work.
WHEN YOU WANT SUCCESS AS BAD AS YOU WANT TO BREATHE, YOU’LL BE AS SUCCESSFUL AS YOU WANT TO BE.
Take 20 minutes a day. Dedicate 20 minutes to ONE of 5 focused tasks per day.
- Customer Service
- Hostess Coaching
Spend 20 minutes working on booking parties. Whether these are Facebook parties or home shows, you still have to ASK. Spend this 20 minutes:
~personally reaching out to people
~creating a game or graphic to book
~do a FB live talking about the hostess special
~contact PAST hostesses from the previous years
~make hostess packets and post a picture on social media-and make them COOL so everyone wants one!
There’s a million things you could do.
Tuesday Customer Service:
Spend 20 minutes creating a buzz.
~send a thank you email to anyone who has ordered in the last week
~contact each person who ordered the previous month and make sure they’re happy with their product (and have you seen the new specials?)
~contact anyone who has open orders and make sure they knew about the customer specials if they didn’t order one
~go comment on all your open parties and start some conversations with the guests
~scroll through Facebook and actually interact with your customers on THEIR pages
~touch base with all your new consultants within the last 3 months
~reach out to any potential consultants
~don’t have any potential consultants? create an opportunity event and GET ONE!
~put some pins on Pinterest about joining
~create a youtube video or FB live about joining…then share into all your FB parties!
This is all social media to me. Sharing my love of my product on all the different social media sites. And because I love it, this isn’t even work. This is my play time!
~schedule some tweets in Cinchshare
~pin some things from your Cinchshare history onto Pinterest
~schedule some Instagram posts onto Twitter/FB business page
~go post your social media links in all your parties
~create a contest on a social media channel and direct all your customers to it
~create a newsletter to email your customers
Friday Hostess Coaching:
Spend 20 minutes contacting every hostess.
~ask them if they need any extra order forms or catalogs
~tell them what their total is for online orders so far
~give them a task to do that day: post this, tag 3 friends on some posts in your party, or text this to 3 people today
~tell them how much farther they are from the next level and TELL THEM HOW TO GET THERE!
This is just a small breakdown of a HUGE list you should already have! 20 minutes a day. If I can do it, YOU can do it!
