Create a Google Form for your Hostess to Get Her Guest List to You!

Posted on Updated on

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 ūüôā ”

So WHY would you want to become a Thirty-One Consultant? That’s what this post is all about! I want to tell you all the benefits to becoming a consultant with Thirty-One. And also why OUR team is the right fit for YOU!

become a consultant

So, before you join any direct sales company, you should do your research!

1.  First, you need to research the company

Is it a solid company? Does it’s core values match up with yours? Thirty-One is all about celebrating, encouraging, and rewarding women. And boy do they do it well! Thirty-One was named from 31 Proverbs which talks all about celebrating women who are leading the way.

2. Research the enrollment options

Thirty-One is offering 2 different enrollment kits. So you get to pick your patterns! This is SO important. Because you have to love what you’re selling. ¬†If you’re not passionate and in love with the products you are trying to sell….you won’t convince anyone else why they should buy from you.

3. Research the career path

How easy is it to advance in the company? If it’s hard for you to understand, ask someone! With Thirty-One, it’s so simple. You recruit 2 people underneath and start earning commission on THEIR sales. You recruit 4 people and meet certain quotas and you become a director. If you work hard with Thirty-One, you can easily advance quickly! Make sure you understand the career path before you join!

4. Research your upline. What is your Upline?

Your upline is who you’re enrolling under. Ask them about what kind of team she belongs to. Are they supportive? Ask her who her director is. She should KNOW who her director is! This is a great sign that she is on a good team. The support you receive from your team, will make a big difference in your career.

Our team is top notch! We have trainings, conference calls, incentives to get you out of your box, daily team tips, weekly newsletters, and monthly newsletters. And much more! So just make sure you know what kind of TEAM you’re getting when you enroll under someone!

Thirty-One also offers something called C&C meetings all over the country, bi-monthly. ¬†Directors hold these meetings, so you’re sure to find one near you. AND…home office sends a gift to every single consultant who registers for the meeting and attends! This sets us up for success by getting new product into our hands to share with our customers.

5. Ask about what kind of incentives the company offers

Thirty-One is always setting their consultants up for success. ¬†Before the launch of every catalog, we have the opportunity to earn whole kits full of new product so that we don’t have to fork out money to keep new products in our kits!

We also have a chance to earn conference attendance for FREE

And as I said above, you also get a new product every other month just for attending a one hour training bi-monthly

I have also earned trips to Mexico 3 times and one trip to Punta Cana!
