50 Engagement Questions for your Social Media Pages

Posted on Updated on

Engagement is the name of the game!

Set up one day a week to post an engagement picture and get your customers chatting in your customer Facebook groups and pages! It’s important to not always be posting business. You want to get to know them as a person! And this is a great way to do it.

Here’s an example of an entire album full of engagement posts (just like the one below) from Cinchshare:

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!

Christmas Dice Booking for Your Thirty-One Parties

Video Posted on

Oh my gosh! This was SO much fun! So I took the Dice Booking Game and added a small twist with Christmas present boxes. And my guests LOVED the boxes!

My goal with the boxes was to get them in the spirit of GIFTING and thinking about Christmas presents! It was cute, fun, and festive. And I’ll be using this through the holidays! Find the rules below, but watch this video first!

Supplies:

1. fiesta bowl or vegetable tray…whatever that thing is called (from the original game):

1

2. Eleven Christmas boxes. I found mine at Dollar General for $1

1

3. Large colorful dice (or regular dice if you want to be that guy. Just kidding! Regular dice are fine!)

4. Some slips of paper to insert your prizes into the boxes. I used cardstock and made sure they fit in there pretty tight so they would stay in the bottom.

Prizes:

It is VERY important that you use these exact #’s for the prize boxes. Someone out there has done the statistics of how many times a # was likely to be rolled. So, for instance, the #2 was the least rolled #. So you’re going to want to put your Gran Prize in that box!

#2- Grand Prize

#3 and #4- Prizes

#’s 5-9 are Book a Show

#’s 10-12 are prizes

What do you give away as the prizes?:

~key fobs

~$5 off your order

~free customer special (only if it’s cheap) and write “with a $35 purchase”

~Pick a prize (have a prize box with lots of little goodies from your company-key fobs, nail files, things from dollar bins at Target. etc)

What happens if two people get the same number?:

Nothing! When someone rolls the dice and gets their number, they open the box and see what their prize is. And then they put the box back on the table! So it’s ok if someone rolls the dice and gets the same number.

How does this compare to my purse booking game?:

I will use them BOTH! They are both equally effective when it comes to booking. However, I like this dice booking game because I don’t have to switch out the prizes or anything. They just stay in the box. It’s cheap, but it’s adorable and kind of irresistible, so they can’t stand not to play!

The biggest time consumption I had with the purse game is that I had to change out the slips in them. And with 20 purses, it is sometimes a chore. Effective, but a chore.

So…final conclusion is that I will alternate this Dice Booking Game AND the purse booking game. When I have a party with a ton of repeat guests, I’ll be able to switch it up a little!

 

Happy Booking Ladies!!

Matchbox Dice Booking Game for Your Direct Sales Parties

Video Posted on

I found the most AWESOME booking game for my Thirty-One home parties! I’m going to call it the Matchbox Dice Booking Game, cause I like to make up words. LOL!

It was so easy and so fun for the guests! I saw a blog post from Deb Bixler that sparked the idea, so I knew I had to make it my own! Watch this video to learn more and then find major details below on how to make your own, what prizes go in the boxes, etc.

So here is what it all looks like

(now there’s a #1 box in that picture. You won’t need a #1 box)

1

Supplies:

1. fiesta bowl or vegetable tray…whatever that thing is called 🙂

2. Matchboxes (I found mine at Hobby Lobby. They were made by Paper Studio)

3. Large colorful dice (or regular dice if you want to be that guy. Just kidding! Regular dice are fine!)

4. Some slips of paper to insert your prizes into the boxes. I used cardstock and made sure they fit in there pretty tight so they would stay in the bottom.

Prizes:

It is VERY important that you use these exact #’s for the prize boxes. Someone out there has done the statistics of how many times a # was likely to be rolled. So, for instance, the #2 was the least rolled #. So you’re going to want to put your Gran Prize in that box!

What happens if two people get the same number?:

Nothing! When someone rolls the dice and gets their number, they open the box and see what their prize is. And then they put the box back on the tray! So it’s ok if someone rolls the dice and gets the same number.

How does this compare to my purse booking game?:

I will use them BOTH! They are both equally effective when it comes to booking. However, I like this matchbook dice booking game because I don’t have to switch out the prizes or anything. They just stay in the box. It’s cheap, but it’s adorable and kind of irresistible, so they can’t stand not to play!

The biggest time consumption I had with the purse game is that I had to change out the slips in them. And with 20 purses, it is sometimes a chore. Effective, but a chore.

So…final conclusion is that I will alternate this Matchbox Dice Booking Game AND the purse booking game. When I have a party with a ton of repeat guests, I’ll be able to switch it up a little!

And if you haven’t tried the Purse Booking Game, you’ll want to check that out too:
