Remember the key to engagement posts:

You have to ENGAGE yourself! See what your customers answers are and interact. Laugh with them. Be a human being instead of trying to sell to them constantly! If you read between the lines, you can really get to know your customers with some of these posts. And then your customers, well they actually get to know each other too. They will start finding people in your group with similar interests, maybe they were from the same hometown, maybe they owned the same “first car”. Whatever it is, it’s about creating an environment and a community where people actually like to come and interact and smile once a in awhile.

So try scheduling these posts a couple times a week and see what happens!

How to Create a Domain Name for your Business

Posted on

Let’s talk about branding your business with a domain name!

Branding your business is one of the most important steps you will ever make in your business.

What does branding mean?

Branding means you’re creating an expectation in your business. Your customers know what to expect from you. It’s the who, what, why, when, how…of your business. There me be thousands of consultants in your company or industry, but branding is what will set you apart from all of them. It can be anything from color palettes, fonts, graphics, and visual materials…to a wide stream of platforms and concepts you use in your business.

But the most important thing about branding, is that it simply sets you apart and your customers immediately know YOU when they see your branding. Branding is something you want to think about when you’re ready to kick your business up a notch.

And a domain name, is one simple (and inexpensive) part of that plan.

Check out this video to learn all about a domain name for your website: (https://youtu.be/ffWl68atNpY)

Some simple truths about a domain name:

Keep it simple:

It has to be short! In order for people to remember your website name, keep it short and simple. You also want to keep it short so it fits nicely on business cards and marketing materials. If it gets too long, people won’t remember it and you’re going to have a hard time fitting it onto marketing materials.

2nd grade reading level:

Make sure the words you use are EASY TO SPELL. Not everyone could win a spelling bee. And you want to send them to the right site. So don’t put words that can be easily misspelled. For example, mine is BUYMYBAGS. Kind of hard to get that one wrong. So really take a moment to find something catchy and SO EASY that it can’t be mistaken.

Locations and names:

Stay away from locations and names! Locations LIMIT you. You don’t want someone to see “Ohio” and think you only service people in Ohio. Think bigger and leave out those locations. With names…those are probably the most COMMONLY misspelled words. Even a name like mine, Melissa…there are 15 different ways to spell it. So stay away from it altogether.

Numbers:

Stay away from numbers in your domain name. People will transverse them, mix them up, and simply forget the number. So don’t use them! My brain goes all fuzzy if I hear numbers or directions. Don’t even risk it!

Policy and procedures:

Each company is different. So make sure before you set this up, you check with your company to make sure you’re allowed to set this up. There are certain companies that allow this…and some do not. So always make sure it’s within your guidelines first.

Branding across the board:

Once you have identified what you want your domain name to be, brand yourself across the board. Pinterest, Twitter, customer group, Facebook business page, Instagram…make it all MATCH. Make sure your customers can easily find and identify your personal brand anywhere they go. That’s the most important thing!

Mission statement:

And last but not least, think about your mission statement. What do you want your business to be known for? What do you want YOU to be known for? Who is your target market and what can your business do for them? These are all questions that your domain name should answer. Create a voice for your brand and then learn how to integrate that into every single social media platform you have. Branding is FUN! I promise. And it will breathe new life into your business when you “own it”. Time to level up my friends!

Happy branding!

Hostess Coaching Challenges

Posted on

Hostess Coaching is one of the most important things you can focus on in your business.

You do all this hard work to get these parties books and then many times, you don’t fail because of a script or hostess…you fail because YOU failed to do hostess coaching.

When you slack on hostess coaching:

  1. Your sales go down
  2. Your bookings go down
  3. Your recruiting goes down
  4. Your hostess experience goes down
  5. Your “repeat hostess” rate goes down

I could really go on and on…the effects of poor hostess coaching are endless.

So we’re trying something new this month. It’s a different form of the hostess coaching envelopes we’ve previously done.

Here’s the deal:

We’re going to have 5 hostess challenges. All income producing activities.

For each step they complete, they get a gift from me. It’s a very small and inexpensive gift, but COOL!

The biggest mistake you can make in hostess coaching is assuming your hostesses know what to do. They don’t.

BEFORE WE GET STARTED…HAVE YOU JOINED DIRECTLY SOCIAL ON FACEBOOK FOR MORE GREAT TIPS?

JOIN DIRECTLY SOCIAL HERE: https://www.facebook.com/groups/directlysocial/

Hostess Coaching #1:

Challenge your hostess to get $200 in orders BEFORE her party even starts.

Send her packet early and get her talking to people.

I created this post and printable to help mine get started:

CHALLENGE #1: Print this form (or just post in the comments below) your top 20 people. Message them all and let them know you’re having a 31 party that starts July 1st. And then ASK THEM if it’s ok to add them to the party! ONLY 20! That’s it!

All you need is 20 friends to join your party, interact, and have fun!

So your message might look like this:
Hey girl! I’m having a 31 party (all online). Is it okay if I add you to the party to take a look? It won’t start until July 1st but I wanted to make sure it would be ok to add you when it starts! My consultant has a pretty crazy line-up, she does things a lot different than the normal!

CHALLENGE #1: Text me a picture of your list completed or messages you sent your friends!

You can actually print this PDF by downloading it here: 
https://1drv.ms/b/s!AkYgT2PVhSEHjHtZMuITHkqfBTpl

Hostess Coaching #2:

This one I create in Mad Mimi, a messaging service. Mad Mimi is $10 a month. MailChimp is free. I use Mad Mimi and I created a video to show you exactly how I use it to hand my hostess a tool for Hostess Coaching #2.

She is challenged to send this text message/link to everyone she can and post on her timeline. The goal is collecting orders and getting people added to her Facebook party.

Here is my LINK: https://madmimi.com/s/25966a

And here is the video on how to create your own.

Hostess Coaching #3:

Challenge your hostess to go Facebook Live and ask her friends to join her party. IT WORKS! I’ve had huge success with having my hostesses do this!

Hostess Coaching #4:

Have your hostess send a message to everyone she knows with a LAST CHANCE TO ORDER:

  • Have her text message people
  • Have her post on her Facebook profile
  • Have her send people a Facebook message

Give her the words to say. Hand her a scripted message WITH A LINK to send to her friends. Make it easy and they will do it!

Hostess Coaching #5:

Book a party for 6 months from now with the new catalog.

Now you’re front loading your calendar like a BOSS.

There are MANY different things you can do with hostess coaching challenges, but these are the ones I picked for this month. I challenge you to think about what YOU need to get in your business and revolve your hostess coaching around that.

Happy Hostess Coaching!

One Week of Simplifying Your Thirty-One Business-Part 5

Posted on Updated on

This week we’ve been talking about simplifying your Thirty-One business for the new fiscal year!

Today…we’re going to talk about something that will save you so much TIME! And time…equals MONEY.

1

One of the BEST things I ever did for my business was discover cinchshare.com. Actually, a friend shared it with me.

1

Cinchshare is a social media scheduling site.

I hold at least 8-10 Thirty-One parties a month. And 90% of them run at the SAME TIME.

There is no possible way I could keep up with posting in every single event. NO WAY.

Before Cinchshare:

  1. I was a hot mess
  2. I was missing posts in parties
  3. i was worrying all the time about missing something because i was so scattered brained
  4. i was stressed out to the MAX, to the point where I HATED doing Facebook parties

After Cinchshare:

  1. I schedule every single Facebook party post in MY time. When the boys are napping. Or I have 20 minutes of peace and quiet. I can schedule an entire month’s worth of parties in 20 minutes.
  2. I can pin my Facebook posts to Pinterest
  3. I can schedule monthly posts and trainings to our Thirty-One team
  4. I am SO much happier knowing I have complete control over what’s going on in my business
  5. i’m never stressed out about doing Facebook parties and I’ve been doing more than EVER because you know what?! I have the TIME to develop new ideas for them and have FUN with them!
  6. also, because I’m scheduling trainings and party posts…I’m actually more INVOLVED with comments and posting!!

I highly encourage you to TRY Cinchshare. It is hands down one of the best business tools I have ever used. I have NEVER had a problem. Not ONE. And any time I have a question, I message the HELP button on the site and guess what?! A real LIVE person answers you!! Their customer service is TOP NOTCH!

Cinchshare will cost you $10 a month. The BEST $10 you ever spent. The cost of a couple cups of coffee a month. For peace of mind. You don’t see me promote a lot of things or people on this page because I have to 100%, wholeheartedly believe, without a doubt…that they deliver 100% customer service and that they will take care of who I refer them to. I take pride in my advice to you. And this…will change your business! Well worth it!

If you’d like to check them out…here’s a link to get started!! You won’t regret it! I can promise you that!!

Here’s a video that will show you some things you can do also!
