First of all, be honest…do you even SEND thank you cards to every one of your customers? Until about 6 months ago, I didn’t! But I feel 100% better about my business now that I am. I know each and every person is getting an estimated shipping time and a THANK YOU for supporting my […]
This past year has been so crazy for me. I have 5 children and I’ve had 2 babies in the last 2 years! So my house is literally a circus. So I have spent the last year creating systems for my Thirty-One business. And now I run my business like a well oiled MACHINE! I focused on the things that mattered to me. And hostess coaching was a huge part of that.
The #1 complaint of hostesses, is lack of communication from their consultant. Don’t be HER!
This is not an overnight process, but I couldn’t be happier with the result. So, occasionally you will see things I do with my hostess coaching. And this is the first! As soon as they book a party, this letter goes in the mail I got this from another fabulous director, and I’m not sure who to give credit to or I would!
But it’s the perfect letter to just say “thank you” and touch base. Simple, easy, FUN.
Melissa Fietsam, Ind. Senior Executive Director at Thirty-One Gifts

We had another INSANELY successful Powerhouse retreat! This meeting was created 3 years ago with a dream and a mission. And it has grown into something so much more. I always that God had much bigger plans for me than I did! And Powerhouse is such a reflection of that. What is it for? We […]
Keep track of your contacts! It is SO important to keep track of every aspect of your business in direct sales. How many times do you get a lead for a booking or potential recruit, write their information on a piece of paper, and then LOSE it??!! That is just not affordable in our business. […]
You take your car everywhere. Why not use it to market your business? I have gotten countless leads and sales for my business by having this sticker on the back of my car. Here is my car decal: You run to the: ~bank ~grocery store ~picking kids up ~dropping kids off ~stuck at trains […]
How many consultants do you know that sell for another company? Are you using those connections effectively?

So I’m always looking for new ways to market my business to different circles of people. I came across a site that does personalized bookmarks. So of course I made some bookmarks and had the plan to go to libraries and ask to leave my bookmarks at their counters. But I got to thinking, how […]
