Host an ORGANIZING PARTY:
BATTLE OF THE HOSTESSES
Basically, create a competition between hostesses. Set the goal SMALL. Here’s an example post:
I’m looking for FIVE ladies to join a special event called BATTLE OF THE HOSTESSES!
- Earn FREE and HALF PRICE items
- Have a TON of FUN
- And have a friendly competition with the other hosts!
- Whoever wins…gets the GRAND PRIZE
- But everyone gets FREE and HALF PRICE items!
Post “ME!” below if you would love some more details!
HOSTESS APPRECIATION EVENT
Watch this quick video and tell me what YOU think you could create within this party?
What will you need to prep?
What can you do within the event?
How can you follow up AFTER the event?
Let’s KNOCK OUT some ideas…see what I did there?! TEEHEE
Host an ONLINE AUCTION:
What’s an online auction you say?
You take all the product you have lying around and sell it at a discounted price, and use it to enter one big order yourself. You get rid of old product and you buy current product.
Do you have a new catalog coming out? What product is in that catalog that won’t be returning in the NEW catalog? SELL IT!
Do you have product that you’ve gotten as incentives and discounted customer specials? SELL IT!
How do you sell it?
Take individual pictures of each product, tell your customers you’re posting the album at a certain date and time. Start the bidding at $2. Tell them they can only bid in $2 increments. And they can’t go over the retail value of the product.
How does this help you?
You turn around and buy product to help your business. Things you can model, do videos on, and product that WILL be in the new catalog.
Can you BOOK parties from this too?
I’m SO GLAD YOU ASKED! YES! Cause when someone wins a product, you say… “Okay Sally! You won! It’s $25 or…you can host an online party in January and get it for FREE if you hit $200 in sales!” What do you think?!” Show them the customer specials and let them chew on that for a second.
And you say…but I’m giving it away for FREE?! But…you aren’t using it, it’s not making you any money, it’s not getting you a booking…so it’s essentially worthless sitting in your closet. USE IT!
HOST A PROBLEM PARTY
This is so much fun! Check out this video and then post the answers to the questions in the video below!
It’s crucial to your business to be planning ahead. There’s so much happening at any given time, that you will miss things if they’re not written down and planned out!
Happy Planning ladies!
Here’s your January Booking Idea #4:
You get 6 people to collect $100 in orders.
You split the hostess benefits between those 6 people.
First person to turn in their $100 gets top choice on gift they want.
If they collect $200 in orders, they get TWO prizes.
It’s an EASY way to get people collecting orders! You can mail them a catalog and customer special flier, do a Facebook party, whatever they want!
