I’m trying something NEW and FUN for invitations to my direct sales party!
I created a virtual Guest list form for my hostesses. They can send this link to their friends and family via Facebook, text, or email to get their guest list filled out.
Why would this help me AND the hostess?
1. They have multiple avenues to send it to people
2. They don’t have to mail it back to me
3. I can post it in their Facebook event
4. I have contact information to add to my contact base
5. I have multiple ways to send invitations and reminders
6. And I always have her party’s contact information stored
Check out this “mock” survey I created so you can see what one looks like. DO NOT FILL OUT THE SURVEY!
I created this form in Google Forms. All you have to do is google….Google Forms, to create your own survey.
I created the picture to go in the form, from www.picmonkey.com, which is a free site where you can create pictures.
So what will I do with this information?
1. I will send them a mini catalog with party information. Each invitation I send has a #. I call one # at the party. And if that person has their invitation on them, they win a prize.
2. If my hostess re-books in the future, I still have her guest list.
3. I can send a “targeted” mailing in the future to all of her guests because I still have access to her guest list.
4. I can send a text reminder a couple of days before the party, to remind everyone. And one the day of the party.
5. In the reminder text, I can also post a link to her party in case they can’t make it
6. I can also send an email invitation to her guest list.
7. On her Facebook event, I can post this link with an incentive for filling it out to get their catalog. Just another way to increase attendance and gain more contacts.
When you’re working in Direct Sales, it’s so important to have multiple ways of inviting people to the party. With this form, it makes creating the guest list a BREEZE. It’s going to take some pressure off of the hostess by having her guests fill out the information FOR her.
So here’s to trying new things in your Direct Sales business for 2015! WOOT WOOT for change and SIMPLE~EASY~FUN!
And you know what’s really cool? There’s an APP for your google forms! So you can access all this party information directly from the Google Drive app on your phone! WOOOHOO for….”there’s an APP for that 🙂 ”
