Hostess Coaching Notes on your Facebook Business Page

Posted on

I LOVE the NOTES on my Facebook business page!

And I’m going to show you how to create a NOTE for your hostess coaching! This is a tool your hostess can use to share all of her party information. Which of course, has all the information YOU need to share with people.

Below, you’ll get a template to make your OWN NOTE and you’ll see how I share those!

Check this quick video out:

Now, I’m even going to give you a template to get started on your own!

Here is my exact template for my NOTE below:

Everything in BLUE is a link to a certain page on my website or elsewhere.

So what do you DO with this NOTE?

  1. 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.
  2. 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!

3 Mistakes You Should Never Make on Social Media

Posted on Updated on

Sharing responsibly on social media is not an option, it’s a MUST. And unless you want someone to eventually take legal action against you, you better know the rules!

You are setting an example for your team, your friends, and everyone around you.

So what are the 3 biggest mistakes people are making on Social Media?

Pinterest:

You cannot take someone else’s graphic and change the link to direct people to YOUR website instead of THEIRS. If someone took the time out of their day (and the money out of their pocket) to create a graphic of their product, YOU have no right to that picture.

Under NO CIRCUMSTANCES are you allowed to take that really awesome graphic and change the link. Let me repeat that…YOU CANNOT CHANGE THE LINK on someone else’s graphic!

Pinterest is a place for ORIGINAL content. Not a place to claim someone else’s original content for your own. Did you know it’s actually illegal?! If I post a picture of my product on Pinterest, it is legally my “intellectual property”. And you are bound by Pinterest to adhere to that rule.

Now, I will say, if you are a direct sales consultant, many companies allow you to take HOME OFFICE graphics and change the links to yours. But this does NOT apply to other people’s graphics you happen to like.

You have 2 options:

OPTION#1:

REPIN IT: Sure, you can repin it. But why would you want to? Why would you want to have a really cool graphic that leads your customers to someone else’s site? My opinion…don’t do it.

OPTION#2:

Create your own: Save the graphic to a secret board and then recreate the same idea with your own product. And BAM! Now YOU have a great graphic to share on Pinterest!

SIDE BAR:

We all have product in our closet. Take that product out once a week and work on one room in your house, or one “theme”. 20 minutes is all it takes to stage some product and take some pictures with your phone. It’s really that easy. And then make sure you watermark so no one WANTS to take your picture to begin with! A watermark is as simple as putting your name and business information as “text” onto the graphic. This can easily be done on Canva or even apps on your phone like Word Swag.

Are you THAT girl?

The one that has a million posts from other people and maybe even changed their links?

Want to know where to start?

Honestly, you need to go delete those boards if you have no original posts in there. Just START OVER!

If you have a bunch of pins from other people and didn’t change the link: you’re leading your customers to other people’s pages and that is NOT what you want to do. You don’t want to lead people away from your website to someone else’s website to order.

If you have a bunch of pins and illegally changed the link to direct them to your site: delete every single one of them. And then recreate your own. And brand your images before you upload them.


Instagram:

Now let’s talk about Instagram. You are not permitted to take someone else’s graphic and: take a snapshot, crop it, and share it. UNLESS you tag them and give them credit for the photo.

You actually have to tag their Instagram account so people are linked back to the original creator of the photo.

People take time on their social media posts. It is NOT okay to take their post and claim it as your own.

You have 2 options:

OPTION #1:

Crop and tag: Snap a picture of the post, crop it, repost, and add “Photo Credit @TheirNameGoesHere”.

You actually have to tag their Instagram account so people are linked back to the original creator of the photo.

OPTION#2:

Use a reposting app: Use an app like “Repost” where you copy the link to their post, paste it into the app, and then it tags them in the photo for you.


Twitter:

And last but not least, let’s talk Twitter. Again, you cannot take someone’s post and make it your own. Twitter makes it very easy to share someone else’s content. And it’s actually a “high five” and pat on the back when you do.

You have 3 options:

OPTION #1:

Retweet: You can retweet their original post and it will show up on your timeline, giving credit to the original author or creator.

OPTION#2:

You can share something and TAG that person’s Twitter handle (@theirtwitteraccount)

OPTION#3:

You can copy a URL directly from the post you want to share and link them back to the original creator’s content. This is mostly for websites and blogs, things of that nature.


Really, the moral of the story is to create your own content. Taking someone else’s content does nothing for your business in the long run. You have to learn how to be creative and get your own posts out there!

UPDATE TO A QUESTION: If the original creator of the photo gives you PERMISSION to share that photo, then yes, you can share it. But you also need to make sure THEY are the original creator of that photo-and not just sharing it from someone else in the first place!

You have to research.

Find someone who inspires you and learn how to do it yourself!

Happy Sharing,

Melissa Fietsam

Here’s how to start your Thirty-One Gifts Hostess of the Month Club!

Posted on Updated on

So if you’ve ever wondered how to start a Thirty-One Gifts Hostess of the Month Club, here’s your start!

Watch this video and see the exact video I posted in my customer group to get ready for our next round of filling a club for 2017:

The idea is simple.

You have 6 ladies who join a HOTM Club.

Each member agrees to purchase $35 a month, by the 13th of the month.

They can either purchase themselves or collect an order from a friend.

They get their own secret group on Facebook so you can spoil them.

Now some people do this for 12 months. Some people do this where they order every other month. I like to keep my simple and easy. $35 a month for 6 months. And they get an extra reward when they join a club for the SECOND time, or third time, and so on.

Why do this?

It’s guaranteed sales every single month.

I get recruits from every single group I do. Because they fall in love.

I have consistent sales to earn company incentives.

And I have loyal customers who are spreading the word about my business every single month.

TRY IT!

And here is a step by step guide to start your HOTM Club:
