Facebook Etiquette for Direct Sales Consultants

Posted on Updated on

There’s a few things that really razz me on Facebook.

And I’m generally the most easy-going person you’ll meet. I’m actually kind of shy unless I know you. And I’m intimidated by large crowds…but that’s a whole other therapy session. But when someone does one of these “do NOT do’s” to me…the redhead hillbilly comes out. Like Hulk. It’s ugly.

Facebook

What I want to talk to you about today, is Facebook Etiquette (and all social media for that matter)! WHY? Because I want you to NOT do it! So here are some Do’s and Don’ts that you should really consider while conducting business on Facebook:

Your Customer Business Page:

I have a Direct Sales business. I share SO MUCH freely with the world for you to use. But my business page for my Direct Sales business is OFF LIMITS. There is NO EXCUSE for any “like consultant” to be on that page. Other than to lurk and steal stuff.

Because that’s what you’re doing. By taking things off someone’s business page without their consent, you are STEALING. What they post…their words and their graphics are THEIR INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY. You do not have the right to go on their page and take stuff.

DO NOT:

1. Do not post on someone’s business page, can I steal this? You just turned a genuine post into an icky feeling sales post. STOP IT!

2. Do not take someone graphics off their customer business page. It’s not yours. You didn’t spend an hour creating it, DON’T TAKE IT.

3. Do not take someone’s post and copy and paste it and use it on your page WITHOUT THEIR PERMISSION. If you are doing this, you’re probably not doing very well in your business. Because you are not being AUTHENTIC, you are essentially stealing, and your customers can probably smell you a mile away!

4. Do not join someone’s events on their customer business page and steal all their posts or scripts. IT IS THEFT! YOU…take the time away from your family, your business, your work and DO IT YOURSELF!

Your personal Facebook timeline:

This is a page for your family and friends. Period. 

DO NOT:

1. Post something on someone’s timeline that is a business question:

Why?: because your personal timeline is not for business. It is for you to make connections with your family, your customers, and your friends. You have to have a personal boundary in this world. You can private message someone a question about something you saw on their timeline, but do not talk business on someone’s timeline.

2. Do not send someone a private message and then post on their timeline “Hey, I sent you a message, you must have missed it”.

WHY?: Because I can assure you they saw it, but didn’t have time to answer it…and it will TICK THEM OFF. Smart people…turn off Facebook notifications when they’re focused and working on something. So they are not distracted. I actually have a scheduled time to go through and answer messages that are business related. You should too:)

My personal messaging rules:

***If you are not on my team, you are not a friend, a family member, or a customer, your question will be answered when all of MY work is done. That could be 20 minutes, or that could be 2 weeks. I cannot interrupt my own work, to help someone else’s work. That’s why I schedule the time accordingly. This is my time, then when I’m done (and if I have time) it is their time.

3. Do not comment on a post that is on someone’s personal timeline and say “I’m stealing this”, “where did you buy those from”, “I tried that and it didn’t work”, “can i borrow this?”, or ANY OTHER business question. 

WHY?: Because we realize YOU see them as a person to learn from and someone to get good ideas from, but you are on their PERSONAL PAGE. You are taking PERSONAL posts to their friends/family/customers and staining it with business. It’s like you just put Facebook PORN on their page! That’s how much it makes me cringe.

 

It is extremely unprofessional. Now, feel free to privately message people…but posting business on their page is not acceptable business etiquette.

What you CAN you do on someone’s personal Facebook timeline:

1. Post a thank you for helping you with something. 

WHY? Because that’s personal.

2. Post a congratulations on something they have accomplished.

WHY? Again, that is a personal thing, and that’s wonderful.

3. Celebrate a success you had with someone.

WHY? because that shows others the bond that we have and the friendships we make. And again, it is personal.

As Direct Sales consultants, it’s so important to learn from each other. But make sure those professional relationships don’t get ruined because you weren’t minding your Facebook manners 😉

We all need to respect each other’s personal boundaries. I share because I care about every single person out there. But sometimes I get burned for it. So I just wanted to throw that out there. There’s a right way and a wrong way. Make sure you’re doing things the RIGHT way!

And for the record, this goes for ALL SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORMS!

Let’s Talk Business Etiquette for Direct Sales

Posted on Updated on

There’s been some things going on that we need to chat about!

#1 on that list: someone decided to start some rumors that Melissa is leaving Thirty-One. 100% FALSE. Let’s just put that out there. Thirty-One is the heart of my passion and love for direct sales and social media. And I would NEVER in a MILLION YEARS walk away from that. So, in short, NO. I’m not going anywhere. Y’all are stuck with me!

I am working as an Independent Social Media Strategist. I’m doing what I love! I get to train and travel and be ME. And it’s a huge dream come true to be able to have TWO jobs that I am so passionate about! That’s the jist of it. Nothing more, nothing less. I’m pursuing ALL my goals and dreams this year. So you can tell everyone to ZIP IT;)

#2: We need to talk business etiquette. So please take a listen to this video. I’m going to start promoting my business on my personal and customer business page. And I need people to respect my space on that. And this goes for ALL consultants! You should be following these simple rules for every sister in direct sales. There’s a way to do things, and a BIG way to NOT do things.

What is okay?

Posting on someone’s picture:

  1. that’s so cool
  2. what an awesome job!
  3. congratulations!
  4. i love that color!

What is NOT okay?

  1. what did you put in that packet?
  2. where did you buy those bags?
  3. how much was shipping?
  4. do you mail this to all your hostesses?

Those kind of comments immediately turn the post into SPAM. Don’t do it. I’ve been hesitant for years to post my customer group link, my customer page, all kinds of things. And it’s time for me to GROW. So everyone needs to understand that my personal posts, my customer group page, and my Business Customer Page on Facebook are OFF LIMITS to consultants!

I’m ready to teach you all how to grow your businesses in 2017! I’m taking my business to new heights. But I need your help to do that! I can’t grow if I’m constantly being restricted by other consultants. So thank you in advance for even reading through this and I truly hope that I have given someone some new insight on this subject!

Hustle & Hugs,

Melissa Fietsam

 

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

Increase your Recruiting in 2017

Posted on Updated on

Want to increase your recruiting in 2017?

**Don’t forget to click SUBSCRIBE to my blog so you never miss a beat!

Schedule bi-weekly opportunity events on your Facebook Business Page. Check this out:

Be Consistent:

By holding these bi-weekly, you’re holding yourself accountable to work on your recruiting more in 2017

Time Management:

  1. By doing this on your business page, you can easy batch post this event by using Cinchshare. So you create the event once, schedule all the posts, and then all you have to do is click a few buttons and you’re ready to schedule the next event in just a few clicks!
  2. Also use the COPY EVENT feature on Facebook events. You can recreate any event (the title and description) and then all you have to do is change the date! This will make it so easy to do and stay consistent while saving you a TON of time!

Facebook Parties:

During your Facebook parties, invite your customers with the actual link to the Opportunity Event. You’re consistently inviting guests from EVERY party to an ongoing event each month. So I will be scheduling these on the 10th and 25th of every month. These are strategic dates for me with some other planning I’m doing. Whatever you, stay consistent.

Increase Reach:

Facebook Business Pages are PUBLIC. That means your opportunity events are public knowledge and searchable material. HELLO. HOLLA!

I hope I have truly blessed and empowered someone today. Much love,

Melissa Fietsam

June Thirty-One Facebook Party Script

Video Posted on Updated on

This June Facebook script is a new concept.

I used my “secret” business page to create “LIVE” videos that I will incorporate into my party. If this scares the willies out of ya…don’t worry. I’ll make a second script for June that will be super duper easy and willies free 🙂

So this is my 4 day Facebook party I have created:

1. 4-6 posts a day

2. I post using http://www.cinchshare.com, so I can pre-post all of those. If you don’t use cinchshare, you SHOULD! And if you haven’t seen their new POST BATCH…check it out. You schedule once, and then you can copy the entire script to another party. AWESOME.

I do a Facebook event the same way for every party. Whether they are having a home show, a catalog show, a Fundraiser, or a Facebook Party. They all get the same 4 day event. This is my way to get in front of as many people as I possibly can!

** I created a BUSINESS PAGE on Facebook that is ONLY for graphics. Do not “like” that page or draw any attention to it PLEASE> That is ONLY to house my albums in a “public” place. You will need to make your own PAGE and your own ALBUMS. But it should be pretty easy if you just choose some of the photos from the albums I already made. You can copy each album and all photos. I don’t mind.

It is IMPERATIVE that you watch this video BEFORE you try to do this script. You HAVE to understand the way this works.

***You canNOT put 31 or Thirty-One in the NAME of your Facebook Business page. The goal is NOT to draw attention to that page and keep just for your parties. And it is against policy and procedure to have 31 or Thirty-One in the title of ANY page.

**You need to read through each post to make sure it doesn’t have any of MY personal information and make it personal to you!

***It takes some time to load these albums, much less for you because i did all the hunting down and organizing for you! But the good thing is…I can change my script up, add pictures, change pictures, and change the BODY of the script…but still keep the albums! My goal is to show them the function and find some new ways to make it interactive.

I focused on the product lines I wanted to showcase, booking seeds, recruiting seeds, and lead generation (getting follow-up information).

I wrote down a list of absolutely everything I wanted to post in a FB event. And this is the outline I ended up with:

PRE-POSTS (I load these before I invite my host and before she invites all her friends)

**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.

PRE-POST: Here is my example for the DESCRIPTION of the June Facebook event:

Sheryl is hosting a Thirty-One Party! And we cannot wait to show you all the amazing gift ideas for you, your friends, and your family this season.

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!

Thirty-One Facebook Script

Thirty-One March Facebook Script

Posted on Updated on

March Facebook Party Script**below you will find my entire 4 day Facebook script for March 2016 with all images.

I want to make it FUN for my hostesses and guests!!

So this is my 4 day Facebook party I have created:

1. 4 posts a day

2. I post using http://www.cinchshare.com, so I can pre-post all of those. If you don’t use cinchshare, you SHOULD!

3. I post at 9am, 1pm, 4pm, and 8pm each day

I do a Facebook event the same way for every party. Whether they are having a home show, a catalog show, a Fundraiser, or a Facebook Party. They all get the same 4 day event. This is my way to get in front of as many people as I possibly can!

** I created a BUSINESS PAGE on Facebook that is ONLY for graphics. Do not “like” that page or draw any attention to it PLEASE> That is ONLY to house my albums in a “public” place. You will need to make your own PAGE and your own ALBUMS. But it should be pretty easy if you just choose some of the photos from the albums I already made. You can copy each album and all photos. I don’t mind.

It is IMPERATIVE that you watch this video BEFORE you try to do this script. You HAVE to understand the way this works.

***You canNOT put 31 or Thirty-One in the NAME of your Facebook Business page. The goal is NOT to draw attention to that page and keep just for your parties. And it is against policy and procedure to have 31 or Thirty-One in the title of ANY page.

**You need to read through each post to make sure it doesn’t have any of MY personal information and make it personal to you!

***It takes some time to load these albums, much less for you because i did all the hunting down and organizing for you! But the good thing is…I can change my script up, add pictures, change pictures, and change the BODY of the script…but still keep the albums! My goal is to show them the function and find some new ways to make it interactive.

I focused on the product lines I wanted to showcase, booking seeds, recruiting seeds, and lead generation (getting follow-up information).

I wrote down a list of absolutely everything I wanted to post in a FB event. And this is the outline I ended up with:

PRE-POSTS (I load these before I invite my host and before she invites all her friends)

1. Introduction to ME (always include a picture)

2. Bundle pictures to show what they can get and let them browse products

3. Introduction to FB party: what to expect from ME

4. Customer Special

**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.

Thirty-One Facebook Opportunity Event with Spring 2016 Kit!

Posted on

Here’s a script you can use to host your own opportunity event on Facebook. You can do this as a team or for yourself.

This script was a collaboration between myself, Bridgett Edwards, and Tiffany Wellinghoff.

It’s a great way to show all the benefits and frequently asked questions about joining Thirty-One with the new Spring and Summer 2016Enrollment Kit!

I like to create a private group for these because people can refer back to them.

I posted things before the event also. We hold these once a month for our team to be able to invite their potential recruits. Thanks to Tiffany Wellinghoff who gave me the push to get back into doing them. And they’ve been going GREAT!

You’ll want to post once a day until the event. And then that day…post once in the morning, maybe once around 5pm, one hour before the event, and then 20 minutes before the event.

Here you go!

POST #1:

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, 7 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!

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. But, first, let’s get this party started with a GIVEAWAY! Who doesn’t love a giveaway!? WooHoo! To enter, comment here and tell us who invited you tonight and what city and state you live in? ONLY OUR GUESTS! Not consultants! 🙂 🙂

POST #2:

 

STEP 1- $99 enrollment kit

Within 7 days after you enroll, you will receive a BIG HOT PINK BOX! Included in the box – over $400 worth of products and business supplies (catalogs, order forms, fliers, etc…enough supplies for your first 4 parties). And by doing those parties, you will earn more business supplies for FREE after that!

The products included are some of our most popular items, and the kit is all that you need to get started! With these products and the fabric swatches that are included, you are ready to go! The kit is over a $400 value for only $99!! What product are you most excited about in this kit?

POST #3:

STEP 2:

Book your launch party in February (your consultant will help you do this)! You can book a party any way you want and take advantage of the AMAZING hostess special. But the great thing about it…when you join NOW…you’re going to be the hostess AND the consultant! So you’re going to earn ALL the commission PLUS all of the hostess benefits!! HOLY COW!
1-Book your launch party
2-Your customers get this brand new bag for $10
3-YOU earn all the commission AND hostess benefits for hosting your own party!
And how much do you have to sell to stay active? Just $200 every 3 months. Say WHAT?! That’s EASY!!
So are you ready for a sneak peek at some new spring product you’ll be earning for free, simply by hosting your own show in February???

POST #4:

STEP 3:
You get to earn FOUR of these kits for FREE~

The Start Swell is an extra incentive that the company offers for new consultants, giving you a chance to earn even more FREE products and business supplies in your first 4 months with the company. This program is extremely attainable for everyone! Thirty-One wants to REWARD you by having a strong start! Check out what you will earn with this fantastic program! At EACH of the four levels, when you hold just ONE average party (or sell $600) during each 30 day period, you will get YOUR choice of these beautiful kits!! You’re going to have the chance to earn FOUR of these kits when you join in January!!

1.jpg

POST #5:

STEP 4:
Host your launch party and get PAID. You’re basically going to pay yourself back for the kit you just purchased! An average launch show is $600.
1. That’s $150 in COMMISSION…so actually you’re making MORE than the price of the kit. You already made some EXTRA money!
2. You’re earning ALL hostess benefits… which for a $600 show is $100 in FREE product!
3. AND…you’re earning your first start swell kit for FREE!!

1

POST #6:

STEP 5:
And how do I know you’re going to have an AMAZING launch party and start to your business?
Because we have our #1 selling product in the catalog this Spring…personalized PILLOWS!! Along with some amazing new products that are going to make it the BEST season we’ve ever had in Thirty-One!

1

POST #7:

STEP 6:
Did you know you’ll earn $100 CASH BONUS for each friend who signs up under you?
Starting this business with a friend is the BEST possible thing you can do! You get to work together, share all the new and exciting products and ideas, go to National Conference and local meetings together…it’s truly such an awesome experience to have with your friends or family. So start thinking about who YOU could share this opportunity with!

1

POST #8:

STEP 7:
Holy Cow! …What would YOU do with an extra $300 a month? Just 2 average parties a month…and then we’re going to answer some frequently asked questions for you!
Will you be paying a car payment?
Paying for kids sports activities (that’s me for sure)?
Paying for a family vacation you’ve never been able to take?
Buying that new pair of shoes and not having to feel guilty about it?
Maybe dive into some charity work (this is also me)?
Just get out of the house cause the babies are driving you nuts…who cares about the $$…LOL!!
What is it? What is your WHY? What would you do if you had an extra $300 a month?

POST 9:

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 just collect orders from their friends and family and turn them in to you.

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 $12.95 a month. You will receive the website and newsletter FREE during your first three months you join Thirty-0ne. And you can cancel that at any time.

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 or re-order without hosting a shopping event.

6. What is my initial cost to become a consultant?
It only takes $99 to secure your consultant display kit! It comes with over $400 in product you get to use for yourself and your parties

7. What will I get with my kit and when can I expect to receive it?
You will get all the products on the back of the new catalog along with 25 catalogs, invitations, and 50 order forms in addition to other start-up paperwork. You will receive your kit in 3-5 days.

POST #10:

STEP 9:

More Frequently Asked Questions:

8. Are there any other hidden fees?
No, Thirty-One does not charge you any other fees throughout the year.

9. What can I do to prepare while waiting for my kit?
You can visit www.vistaprint.com to order address labels for your catalogs and business cards. They are FREE, all you have to do is pay for shipping!

And you’ll want to spread the word about your new business. Tell all your family and friends and start booking those parties!!! 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!
10. How are Consultants paid at Thirty-One?
We get paid by direct deposit on the 10th and 25th of each month. You can also choose to have a paper check sent to you if you don’t want direct deposit.

11. 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.

12. 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.

13. 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.

14. 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!!!

15. Are there any support groups or training for Thirty-One consultants?
Yes! Yes! Yes! We have a Consultant Website calledwww.thirtyonetoday.com 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!

Don’t Be So Boring in 2016!

Posted on Updated on

My customer page used to simply EXIST. I rarely post, didn’t have that many customers in there, it just kind of sat there. And when I did post…a whole lot of these followed…

1

Then I started being CONSISTENT. It all started with a goal I made in December of 2014. My goal was to make my customer Facebook page WORK. Not only to make it work, but to make it FUN!

So here is what I did:

1. I made a goal to increase the # of people in my group.

And I doubled my group this year. And I don’t just add people. NEVER just add people. You want THEM to request to be added.

A) I used things like the cutest pet contest and the cutest baby contest.

fb1 1

B) I also did things like this where people won prizes for adding their friends:

add

C) I also posted my LINK to my customer page in every single FB party I did the whole year.

0fb

D) I also just recently started posting the link to my group in my monthly customer email.

So those are just some fun ways to increase your #’s in your customer group.

2. I also wanted to increase the interaction!

I started being consistent with giveaways and posting. Why would my customers be active if I wasn’t?! So I started posting at least once a day, if not more. And what do ya know? I have a lot more interaction.

I’ve gotten bookings, recruits, and sales. It was AMAZING to watch what unfolded in my Facebook customer group over this last year. And all I had to do was SHOW UP:)

3. I wanted to be USEFUL!

My friend Linda Lollo stressed the importance to me last year… about making your page USEFUL. Make it INTERESTING. Make them WANT to read your posts. Make it THE place to be.

My customers don’t just get slammed with posts about purses. I’m not ONLY about purses; and neither are my customers. So why not be a little more versatile. Kind of like being MYSELF!

So I started posting:

~recipes

~links

~useful tips on everything from holidays to crafts to kid tips…you name it, I posted it!

They got to know ME this year. And it worked. Here’s an example of something I posted today:

This would be something great to start with the kids!

http://www.skiptomylou.org/2015-year-in-review-printable/

So there’s a few things I did. I really hope this helps you to think about a new direction for your customer group. I’ve gained so many friends, new hostesses, and sales from my Facebook Customer Page. It’s so worth it if you put the time into it and you simply be YOU. Don’t SELL to them. Just be useful and show them WHY they need your product. Show them PICTURES of product in use. Not just stock photos. That’s B-O-R-I-N-G !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Spice it up and have some fun in 2016!

Thirty-One Holiday Facebook Party Script for November and December

Image Posted on Updated on

So I tried something new with my Thirty-One Facebook parties. I really wanted to focus on SIMPLE~EASY~FUN. But I also was struggling with 2 weeks events. That’s a lot of work on my part.  I needed easy and structured. So I encourage you to write an outline like I have, figure out what YOU want to share with your customers, and tailor it according to your own needs and customers. And remember, each party is different. Always ask your hostess what kind of guests she has: nurses/ teachers? You’ll want to post things that tailor to THEM.

**below you will find my entire 7 day Facebook script for November and December 2015 with all images.

I want to make it FUN for my hostesses and guests!!

So this is my 7 day holiday Facebook party I have created:

1. 3 posts a day

2. I post using http://www.cinchshare.com, so I can pre-post all of those

3. I post at 9am, 2pm, and 7pm each day

4. I close the event 2 days before their actual party closes. WHY? Because I want to give them time to round up orders for those last 2 days, and it just helps me plan exact dates to start and stop those events.

I do a Facebook event the same way for every party. Whether they are having a home show, a catalog show, a Fundraiser, or a Facebook Party. They all get the same 7 day event. This is my way to get in front of as many people as I possibly can!

I focused on the product lines I wanted to showcase, booking seeds, recruiting seeds, and lead generation (getting follow up information).

I wrote down a list of absolutely everything I wanted to post in a FB event. And this is the outline I ended up with:

PRE-POSTS (I load these before I invite my host and before she invites all her friends)

1. Introduction to ME (always include a picture)

2. Bundle pictures to show what they can get and let them browse products

**this particular holiday outline is not as structured as the one below because it is for the holidays and focusing on gifts!

**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.

DAY ONE:

2. Customer Special

I’m a baseball and basketball mom. So something that stands out to me, with Thirty-One, is their spirit line. We make sports fun on the sidelines and FUNctional for everyday use! I spend 3/4 my year sitting on bleachers, so I love looking cool while I’m cheering my babies on. Don’t tell my son I called him a baby. He’s 6 foot 3. LOL!

It’s so fun to be able to put your kids’ jersey #’s or team names on these bags!

On the left…

YOUR WAY CUBES to organize SHOES! I used to have a major shoe problem with 5 kids…love the 31 solution we came up with! Nice and neat! Now if I could just get my kids to put the shoes IN the box 😉

On the right…

YOUR WAY RECTANGLES: I took all their toys and sorted into boxes with LIDS: Legos, blocks, puzzle pieces, trains and train tracks, and of course cars!! It’s amazing how they stay off the floor. But not only that, when I do get them out, it’s a more FOCUSED play. It’s all right there, not lying all over the house. And best part…I’m not breaking my neck or puncturing my foot stepping on them every day!

OH SNAP POCKETS: Great for bills, mail, homework, school papers, and even bathrooms and offices!

YOUR WAY JR CUBES: these are great for storage of any kind. Pantries, toys, baby clothes, the list goes on and on!

So, I have kitchen issues. I wish that was all the issues I own, but this is a good start.

  1. Tupperware and lids. So these are my SANITY bins on the top. Literally, barely missed the straight jacket before I got these!
  2. SNACKS! My kids fought so bad over them. And…well…never mind. They still do. BUT…it looks cute. Now they want cameras installed in the kitchen to see who’s taking it out of their bin. LOL! So…could be costly in the long run, right?

POST:

Today let’s talk about Thirty-One on the GO! I originally became a consultant because I LOVE the organization that 31 brings to my life. And quite frankly…I just wanted the DISCOUNT! So I’m going to show you some of my favorite ON THE GO products for the family today!

Our utility tote line has something for everyone!

LARGE UTILITY TOTE AND DELUXE UTILITY TOTE: great for packing up the family, trunk/car bags, weekend bags, vacation bags, home storage, garage storage, holiday decoration storage

SOFT UTILITY TOTE: this bag is beyond amazing. It is the Mary Poppins bag. You can fit SO MUCH in it! The handles make it extremly confortable to wear over the shoulder. And the fabric is almost silky, but SO durable. By far my favorite new item in the catalog!

STAND TALL BIN: the perfect laundry bin, sports equipment storage, and GREAT for all those stuffed animals!

ZIP TOP ORGANIZING UTILITY TOTE: favorite office on the go or Diaper Bag!

I’m a baseball and basketball mom. So something that stands out to me, with Thirty-One, is their spirit line. We make sports fun on the sidelines and FUNctional for everyday use! I spend 3/4 my year sitting on bleachers, so I love looking cool while I’m cheering my babies on. Don’t tell my son I called him a baby. He’s 6 foot 3. LOL!

Are there any other sports moms out there? What sports do your kids play for?

It’s so fun to be able to put your kids’ jersey #’s or team names on these bags!

Let’s talk accessories! Did you know that two of my favorite new products are $18 or under? The Uptown Mini Pouch will change your purse…and your life! I have TWO to organize everything in my purse! Makeup & First Aid. What else can you think to use that for?

My other favorite is the Letters to London. It fits your Driver’s License and a couple credit cards. It’s perfect to keep those separate so you don’t have to dig for those things you use daily. AND…it hooks right to a clip on almost every one of our purses!

Have you ever thought about doing what I do? People become a Thirty-One consultant for many different reasons:

  1. Make a car payment
  2. Pay kids extracurricular fees
  3. Just get out of the house
  4. Meet new people
  5. Get a DISCOUNT 😉
  6. Pay for family vacations

Here’s a video I made that answers some frequently asked questions about joining Thirty-One. Check it out!

**And if you want more information, message me and I can mail you a packet to look over!

**enrollment kit comes with over $400 in product for just $99

If you had $300 extra a month…what would YOU use it for?

Let’s talk WALLETS! Every woman needs a good wallet. I’ve never really been in love with an inanimate object until I met two of these guys. What’s your favorite wallet? And can you guess which ones I’m cheating on my husband with? Seriously, I have a relationship with these wallets… 😉

Check out this quick video so you can see the Benjamin Wallet: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BIgG-g5PbQc

Funny thing happened, I went into Target and spent $100 the other day. When I got to the check out, I asked the lady what I got for being such a great customer. She looked at me kind of funny…I couldn’t tell whether she was reaching for her little walkie talkie or the pepper spray, so I let it go. LOL

I guess I’ve just been spoiled, because that’s the great thing about Thirty-One, for every $35 you spend…you get to pick either of these items for HALF OFF!

Check out this customer special video. Cause you may not KNOW that you need one yet…but you will after you watch this 30 second video:

Let’s talk HOME ORGANIZATION today!

On the left…

YOUR WAY CUBES to organize SHOES! I used to have a major shoe problem with 5 kids…love the 31 solution we came up with! Nice and neat! Now if I could just get my kids to put the shoes IN the box 😉

On the right…

YOUR WAY RECTANGLES: I took all their toys and sorted into boxes with LIDS: Legos, blocks, puzzle pieces, trains and train tracks, and of course cars!! It’s amazing how they stay off the floor. But not only that, when I do get them out, it’s a more FOCUSED play. It’s all right there, not lying all over the house. And best part…I’m not breaking my neck or puncturing my foot stepping on them every day!

OH SNAP POCKETS: Great for bills, mail, homework, school papers, and even bathrooms and offices!

YOUR WAY JR CUBES: these are great for storage of any kind. Pantries, toys, baby clothes, the list goes on and on!

So, I have kitchen issues. I wish that was all the issues I own, but this is a good start.

  1. Tupperware and lids. So these are my SANITY bins on the top. Literally, barely missed the straight jacket before I got these!
  2. SNACKS! My kids fought so bad over them. And…well…never mind. They still do. BUT…it looks cute. Now they want cameras installed in the kitchen to see who’s taking it out of their bin. LOL! So…could be costly in the long run, right?
