You all know how much I love creating videos. For me, making a video is so much better than just typing out a post. You can see my face, hear my voice, see my body language, just like a real conversation. So I just went in to edit a recent Facebook video I madeand WHAAAAAAT? There […]

Is your Facebook timeline actually leading people AWAY from your business? I need everyone to repeat after me…you are NOT your company! A huge mistake I see from so many fellow direct sellers is that they have their timeline profile linked as “I work at this company” and they link the company they sell for. […]
Here’s a script you can use to host your own opportunity event on Facebook. You can do this as a team or for yourself. This script was a collaboration between myself, Bridgett Edwards, and Tiffany Wellinghoff.

My customer page used to simply EXIST. I rarely post, didn’t have that many customers in there, it just kind of sat there. And when I did post…a whole lot of these followed… Then I started being CONSISTENT. It all started with a goal I made in December of 2014. My goal was to make […]
**below you will find my entire 7 day Facebook script for January 2016 with all images. I want to make it FUN for my hostesses and guests!! So this is my 7 day Facebook party I have created: 1. 3 posts a day 2. I post using http://www.cinchshare.com, so I can pre-post all of those 3. I […]
So I tried something new with my Thirty-One Facebook parties. I really wanted to focus on SIMPLE~EASY~FUN. But I also was struggling with 2 weeks events. That’s a lot of work on my part. So, when Thirty-One announced the 12 Weeks of Summer Incentive, it got me thinking about 7 day parties. And it just kind of snowballed from there. I needed easy and structured. So I encourage you to write an outline like I have, figure out what YOU want to share with your customers, and tailor it according to your own needs and customers. And remember, each party is different. Always ask your hostess what kind of guests she has: nurses/ teachers? You’ll want to post things that tailor to THEM.
**below you will find my entire 7 day script with all images.
I want to make it FUN for my hostesses and guests!!
So this is my 7 day Facebook party I have created:
1. 3 posts a day
2. I post using http://www.cinchshare.com, so I can pre-post all of those
3. I post at 9am, 2pm, and 7pm each day
4. I close the event 2 days before their actual party closes. WHY? Because I want to give them time to round up orders for those last 2 days, and it just helps me plan exact dates to start and stop those events.
I do a Facebook event the same way for every party. Whether they are having a home show, a catalog show, a Fundraiser, or a Facebook Party. They all get the same 7 day event. This is my way to get in front of as many people as I possibly can!
I focused on the product lines I wanted to showcase, booking seeds, recruiting seeds, and lead generation (getting follow up information).
I wrote down a list of absolutely everything I wanted to post in a FB event. And this is the outline I ended up with:
PRE-POSTS (I load these before I invite my host and before she invites all her friends)
1. Introduction to ME (always include a picture)
2. Bundle pictures to show what they can get and let them browse products
1. Introduction to FB party: what to expect from ME
2. Customer Special
3. Holiday Post: pictures to show how they could order 31 for events they already have going on (for instance, right now I posted Father’s day gift ideas, wedding gift ideas, and graduation gift ideas)
1. Roll Call
2. Utility Totes
3. Sports and Spirit line
2. Jewel Kade by Thirty-One
3. Wristlet straps
2. Home Organization
3. Kitchen Organization
1. Birthday Survey
2. Crossbody Purses
3. Big Bag Purses
1. How to order
3. Customer special
Here is my example for the DESCRIPTION of the FB event:
Sheryl is hosting a Thirty-One Party! And we cannot wait to show you all the brand new Jewell by Thirty-One bags AND all the brand new products from the Thirty-One line!

And I’m SO excited to be featured in the catalog on page 24, you’ll have to check it out! I absolutely love my job and want to introduce myself and Thirty-One. I have 5 crazy children and am married to my high school sweetheart. I am a retired Registered Nurse. I worked in the Emergency Room and taught LPNs on the side. I was able to supplement my income with Thirty-One, and now I’m a full-time mom and business owner!
I love Thirty-One because it gives women the freedom to pursue their dreams. It’s so much more than just a bag:) It’s all about celebrating, encouraging, and rewarding women. And I can’t wait to tell you more about it!
I love to give away prizes! And we will be giving away random prizes throughout the online portion of Kelly’s party! For each comment, post, or question…you’ll be entered to win! So let’s have some fun!!
I can’t wait to show you all the NEW with Thirty-One!! Who has been to a Thirty-One party before and who has never heard of Thirty-One?
And what’s this FB party all about?

I’m going to introduce you to TWO amazing customer specials and BRAND NEW PRODUCTS! For every $35 you spend, you get to choose one of the for HALF OFF!!
It’s BACK TO SCHOOL time! Which means back to routine for most of us. One thing I love about Thirty-One is our thermal line. And this fall with work, school, and fall sports…we have a thermal for everyone!
So, I would love to learn a little more about everyone! One of the best parts of my job is getting to meet new friends every day! And not just in my hometown, but all over the United States. So tell me something about you:)
Today let’s talk about Thirty-One on the GO! I originally became a consultant because I LOVE the organization that 31 brings to my life. And quite frankly…I just wanted the DISCOUNT! So I’m going to show you some of my favorite ON THE GO products for the family today!
Our utility tote line has something for everyone!
LARGE UTILITY TOTE AND DELUXE UTILITY TOTE: great for packing up the family, trunk/car bags, weekend bags, vacation bags, home storage, garage storage, holiday decoration storage
SOFT UTILITY TOTE: this bag is beyond amazing. It is the Mary Poppins bag. You can fit SO MUCH in it! The handles make it extremly confortable to wear over the shoulder. And the fabric is almost silky, but SO durable. By far my favorite new item in the catalog!
STAND TALL BIN: the perfect laundry bin, sports equipment storage, and GREAT for all those stuffed animals!
ZIP TOP ORGANIZING UTILITY TOTE: favorite office on the go or Diaper Bag!
- Do you have any of
the products? ~What do you use yours for?
- Which product do you think could help YOU?
I’m a baseball and basketball mom. So something that stands out to me, with Thirty-One, is their spirit line. We make sports fun on the sidelines and FUNctional for everyday use! I spend 3/4 my year sitting on bleachers, so I love looking cool while I’m cheering my babies on. Don’t tell my son I called him a baby. He’s 6 foot 3. LOL!
Are there any other sports moms out there? What sports do your kids play for?
It’s so fun to be able to put your kids’ jersey #’s or team names on these bags!
Did you know you can host a fundraiser with Thirty-One? You can choose a fundraiser for literally ANYTHING you want, and earn 30% of all sales from your catalog party, online party, or home show!
So what’s your passion?
-Your youth group?
-Your kids sports activities? I know my son’s baseball is $1200 per season. I can help you pay for that!
-An organization for cancer or Alzheimer’s?
What is your PASSION?
If you could do a fundraiser for anything you wanted, what would it be?
Let’s talk JEWELRY! Did you know Thirty-One has a line of jewelry in our catalog now? It’s called JK by Thirty-One. These are two of my very favorite necklaces!!! The Horizon and Enchanted Cross.
Go check out the catalog and tell me your favorite piece of jewelry on pages 45-48: http://issuu.com/buymybags/docs/fall_catalog
Let’s talk accessories! Did you know that two of my favorite new products are $18 or under? The Uptown Mini Pouch will change your purse…and your life! I have TWO to organize everything in my purse! Makeup & First Aid. What else can you think to use that for?
My other favorite is the Letters to London. It fits your Driver’s License and a couple credit cards. It’s perfect to keep those separate so you don’t have to dig for those things you use daily. AND…it hooks right to a clip on almost every one of our purses!
The All Day organizing tote is the perfect bag for so many different things. It’s a great size to match any need. What would you use it for?
Have you ever thought about doing what I do? People become a Thirty-One consultant for many different reasons:
- Make a car payment
- Pay kids extracurricular fees
- Just get out of the house
- Meet new people
- Get a DISCOUNT 😉
- Pay for family vacations
Here’s a video I made that answers some frequently asked questions about joining Thirty-One. Check it out!
**And if you want more information, message me and I can mail you a packet to look over!
**enrollment kit comes with over $400 in product for just $99
If you had $300 extra a month…what would YOU use it for?
Let’s talk WALLETS! Every woman needs a good wallet. I’ve never really been in love with an inanimate object until I met two of these guys. What’s your favorite wallet? And can you guess which ones I’m cheating on my husband with? Seriously, I have a relationship with these wallets… 😉
Check out this quick video so you can see the Benjamin Wallet: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BIgG-g5PbQc
Funny thing happened, I went into Target and spent $100 the other day. When I got to the check out, I asked the lady what I got for being such a great customer. She looked at me kind of funny…I couldn’t tell whether she was reaching for her little walkie talkie or the pepper spray, so I let it go. LOL
I guess I’ve just been spoiled, because that’s the great thing about Thirty-One, for every $35 you spend…you get to pick either of these items for HALF OFF!
Check out this customer special video. Cause you may not KNOW that you need one yet…but you will after you watch this 30 second video:
It’s so easy to party with me and Thirty-One when you have so many choices! All you need is $200 in orders to get FREE and HALF PRICE items and SO much more as a Thirty-One hostess!

Let’s talk HOME ORGANIZATION today!
On the left…
YOUR WAY CUBES to organize SHOES! I used to have a major shoe problem with 5 kids…love the 31 solution we came up with! Nice and neat! Now if I could just get my kids to put the shoes IN the box 😉
On the right…
YOUR WAY RECTANGLES: I took all their toys and sorted into boxes with LIDS: Legos, blocks, puzzle pieces, trains and train tracks, and of course cars!! It’s amazing how they stay off the floor. But not only that, when I do get them out, it’s a more FOCUSED play. It’s all right there, not lying all over the house. And best part…I’m not breaking my neck or puncturing my foot stepping on them every day!
OH SNAP POCKETS: Great for bills, mail, homework, school papers, and even bathrooms and offices!
YOUR WAY JR CUBES: these are great for storage of any kind. Pantries, toys, baby clothes, the list goes on and on!
So, I have kitchen issues. I wish that was all the issues I own, but this is a good start.
- Tupperware and lids. So these are my SANITY bins on the top. Literally, barely missed the straight jacket before I got these!
- SNACKS! My kids fought so bad over them. And…well…never mind. They still do. BUT…it looks cute. Now they want cameras installed in the kitchen to see who’s taking it out of their bin. LOL! So…could be costly in the long run, right?
GIVE A WAY TIME!!! One person who answers will get a gift from me in the mail!!
Comment DONE below after you fill this out and we will do a drawing tomorrow morning for one winner!!
FREE GIFT IN THE MAIL!! Do you <3 FREE gifts? How about free gifts on your BIRTHDAY?! Fill out this 2 second survey and you will get a free gift in the mail during your birthday month!!
