So … you know how I have mentioned my business BFF, Melanie Moore, a few times here on the blog? Well, she has been after me to blog about this topic for a long time because she believes it is a resource that every direct seller needs, whether you have been in the business […]
So…I love me a Thirty-One party!! For our new Thirty-One consultants, it’s time to book your launch party! WEEK 3 TEAM TRENDY TRAINING: I’m going to give you: A party presentation to watch All print outs you need And a guide and files to make your guest packets for your home shows! First, watch how […]

I’m going to use this at my home shows to show off the Oh Snap Pockets and Bins! I really don’t think people buy them as much as they would if they could SEE them in action! So we’re going to make it happen. And then we’re going to try and increase sales by showing […]
This is my “push” for January at my parties. I love my binders. They go right along with my party presentation and it works perfectly! Check this out: The pages in my binder: Customer Special: I love the clear pocket on the front to put the customer special on there. No more searching for it. […]
**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 […]
Posted to my team today: I don’t have anymore home shows. And my product is just sitting here not making any money. So here’s my idea for the next few days! Posted in my customer group. Now, you could just have a group of 15-20 products. You’ll want to make sure you have an inventory […]
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. 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 Facebook script for November and December 2015 with all images.
I want to make it FUN for my hostesses and guests!!
So this is my 7 day holiday 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
**this particular holiday outline is not as structured as the one below because it is for the holidays and focusing on gifts!
**some of these pictures are my own, and some are pulled from other fabulous ladies who have shared their creative genius with the rest of us! Thank you if that is YOU.
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

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 and how you know the hostess:)
How many of you do a gift on Christmas Eve or have fun with the Elf on the Shelf? My kids LOVE getting their pajamas on Christmas Eve and we always have them in their own cinch sacs!
And if you do the Elf on the Shelf, you need to check out my Pinterest board full of some fun ideas!
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!
I’m declaring January my BIGGEST fundraiser month in HISTORY! And I need YOU to pick what you would like to give back to! 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.

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!

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 up to THREE of these items at the special price!!

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?
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!! I LOVE to celebrate my customers and hostesses! And this is just one way I get to say THANK YOU for supporting my business 🙂

Here’s some more great gift ideas for those ladies in your life. The uptown mini pouch is SO much fun! At $18, you can get one for all those ladies. And then fill it with some of YOUR favorites to make it a great personal gift.
~gift certificate to their favorite store
~your favorite fun make up
The Baubles & Bracelets is a great travel pouch for your jewelry or smaller makeup (or lip glosses if you’re a lip gloss addict like me). It has two straps to attach your earrings. And 3 pouches for necklaces, bracelets, charms, and anything else you want to keep protected. Also great to put a gift certificate in and let them have something to keep… long after that gift certificate is gone! This one is $20 and worth every penny!
