How to Increase your Sales with Fundraisers

Posted on

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!

Thirty-One Fundraiser FAQs

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 7 years now. I’m going on 8 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!

#7 Collection

We can get a collection of 5 to 6 products. I make a flier, and your team sells just those products.

#8 Restaurant

Hold a restaurant party where everyone gets together for a dinner or lunch and we show off the products there. I’m pretty good at sweet talking managers into also donating a % of the food sales!

#9 Registration Party

The night of your team’s registration, where all parents will be anyway…I can set up a table of products and collect orders. And you can hand out packets that night for others to help collect orders.

These will go on the walkers and wheelchairs for the residents at Westover. And ALL commissions from my personal sales in May are going to the Art Class who teaches a class for my friend at Westover.

Thirty-One May Facebook Script- Something New

Posted on Updated on

This May Facebook script is a totally 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 May that will be super duper easy and willies free 🙂

A dear friend, Michelle Casto, says…what if we did our backward catalog party presentation as short LIVE videos in the Facebook party? Umm…yeah…brilliant.

Last month I tried the auction bucks and loved it. But it was way too much work for me. And way too much for our newer consultants to understand. So I had to riel it back in. And I’m trying something funky!

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.

ROAD TRIP!!

Every summer has a story. It’s crazy how as we get older we forget so easily…just how EXCITING summer is. I have one son graduating this month. And one son getting ready to start pre-school this year. Maybe I’m feeling old and nostalgic. But maybe I’m just getting smarter with old age. I’m tired of being too busy.

So I decided this year was our year. We’re going to take our first family vacation. And we’re going to take an insane amount of ROAD TRIPS to random places. And we’re just going to have fun and enjoy our family.

I made this video to explain to our Thirty-One team my mission for this summer. But I found it kind of fitting for all of YOU.

So if you’d like…you can watch that video:

POST 6:

And if you’d like to follow along on our family’s story…here’s a great board to follow with our trips and all our Thirty-One supplies to get us there!

DAY 2:

POST 1:

Spring cleaning! It never fails, I have a jam packed day and then all of the sudden I’m like the energizer bunny:

~My family is forbidden to speak or get in my way

~I’m cleaning things with toothbrushes (promising I’ll go buy new ones that night)

~The music is turned up and I sound much better with headphones on

~My husband is wondering how we got 15 bags of trash all the sudden…sound familiar?

So let’s talk about what Thirty-One can help you do while you’re organizing!

Here’s some ideas to organize the BATHROOM:

So now that you’ve seen the catalog, let me walk you through it and show you one of our BEST products…our personalized PILLOWS!

POST 4:

Another area of my house I’ve been working on is my KITCHEN!

Check out what I did in my pantry…the first picture! While I was on my spring cleaning binge…I bought a big plastic tub for $5.99. And a trash can for all the grocery bags.

My pantry was a mess! And my cupboard with pots and pans was even worse.

So I took all the pots and pans that we rarely use and put them in this gray tub. And my crockpots (when I’m not using them) can sit right on top!
And the black trash can just has plastic grocery bags that were out of control. And then all our thermals behind that. Sooooo much better grabbing pots and pans now!

We will have a link to your event on my main Thirty-One website that you can send friends and family to order online.

I can mail packets to individual people to help you collect orders.

You will also have a Facebook event (that I set up) where you can add all your friends and family.

**Can people earn prizes?

I LOVE to give away prizes for top sellers.  So if a group of people are collecting orders, top sellers will get prizes!

**Do you have to be local to do a fundraiser?

No. You can live halfway across the country and we can still make this a success for you and your group! I just closed an $800 fundraiser to someone whom I never saw once. I mailed packets and we communicated over the phone and email! We can accomplish some pretty amazing things with technology!

**What types of fundraisers can you do?

There are so many different ways we can hold your fundraiser.

1. We can do groups…where each parent takes a hostess packet and collects orders. Some people like to keep their own earnings, and some like one big lump sum to go to the whole team. Completely up to YOU!

2. We can also do a very specific fundraiser with just a set amount of products (usually 4-5). Our spirit line is great for this!

3. We can do a home show where I come out and set up and do a short presentation. And there’s always prizes and give a ways!

5. We can do a complete ONLINE fundraiser

6. Or I can set up at your church or your event and collect orders so people can see the product.

**Any way we decide to do it, it is sure to be successful with the two of us working together! You can also see some fundraisers below that I have done in the last 12 months!

Thirty-One Teacher Fundraiser

Posted on Updated on

Shared with my team an idea to beat the January myth for low sales in your Direct Sales business:

Ok ladies!! I have something fun for you!! We’re going to try and book some fundraisers in January with TEACHERS! I have an AWESOME flyer for you. I want you to work as hard as you possibly can to find 31 TEACHERS. Do NOT give up until you find 31 teachers!!!! I’m going to struggle right along with you on this! But we don’t know if we don’t TRY! And I want that $1800 Ready Set Sell kit!!

1. So watch this video:

2. download the file:

3. get to contacting those ladies and handing out packets:

4. FOLLOW UP with those you sent a packet

And let’s book some parties!!

I’m looking to make January my biggest fundraiser month in history! And this is just one push for how we can accomplish that!

Thirty-One Booking Challenge

Video Posted on

So here’s a fun new way to get some NEW customers and hostesses from the contacts you already HAVE!

Check out this video and see how the book Go Pro by Eric Worre, taught this old dog some new tricks:

Getting new customers and hostesses is a HUGE focus in my business right now. So when this idea hit me, I ran with it.

How many times do we hammer the same contacts over and over again? It’s really time to EXPAND. It’s time to set a goal in your business to reach a certain # of new contacts each month.

My personal goal is 50 new quality contacts each month for the remainder of the year.

This challenge is about utilizing channels you already know (like they’d smack you in the face they’re close)…and digging deep to build relationships that are already there. You simply haven’t thought of them as business contacts yet.

If you have not read the book, Go Pro, by Eric Worre-stop everything you’re doing and download the audio or order the book. Your business will thank you. That is where this idea came from and I HIGHLY recommend that book to each and every one of you!

Here is your booking challenge form if you would like to go along with our team: http://1drv.ms/1Oid23p
