Do you know what day it is???? Not only is it hump day but it is also WOOHOO Wednesday.
I wanted to give a shout out to the Tag Team. No, I am not talking about wrestling – okay be honest, I am not the only one who used to watch WWE with their daughter, right? No, this Tag Team is a team of party peeps. Here is their story:
Rachel Perry and Amanda Holland, both previous direct sellers themselves, were frustrated with the lack of communication and personal touch that seemed to happen with traditional catalog parties. So, they took catalog parties to Facebook. After months (and months and months and months…you get the picture) of trial and error, they finally figured out not only the formula to the successful 30 minute Facebook party but also the tools needed to build relationships over social media. Today, the Tag Team trains representatives from over 100 direct sales companies on how to build relationships using various forms of social media while focusing on the tools needed to have successful virtual parties. Their dynamic personalities bring a sense of freshness and excitement to the direct sales industry. During their trainings not only will you get fabulous information but you also are guaranteed to laugh so hard that you might pee your pants.
THE TAG TEAM IS THEIR NAME AND FACEBOOK EVENTS ARE THEIR GAME!! The Tag Team trains direct sellers and small business owners how to market their product using Facebook events.
- Virtual catalog parties
- Virtual Team Training events
- Business Opportunity presentations
- One-on-One training
- Group and Team training
- Personalized event scripts and images
No, this is not a paid advertisement. I bought the 30-minute Facebook training. I started to push it aside when they said “make videos” BUT I decided to step out of my comfort zone. I spent a few hours making some vides – a Welcome to the Party, two why videos (why you should party with me and my WHY), the top 5 Thirty One products, and then a thank you and the announcement of the winners. The longest video was the Top 5 products but the rest were an average of 1 – 2 minutes long. They are rough but I have to admit, I enjoyed making them. I am excited to make some more and to start “talking” to people via video for Facebook parties as well as through other social media.
I know, you want to know the results, right? I left the party open for just 24 hours, as recommended, and the result was a $200 party (with some pre-orders). A $200 party that I wasn’t expecting. The truth is that was my goal. Crazy, right? Well, I did a Door Prize slip via Google (a blog for another day) and those who were attending simply wanted to look and had no intention of buying. So, a $200 party was pretty good, right for a lot of lookers.
Will I be doing it again? YES! I have already put a Summer Retirement Party on the calendar. CLICK to join in the fun on July 9th. I won’t be relying on Facebook for ALL of my parties because we know the BEST party is a home party, right? When there are time crunches like summer or vacations or there is just no time in your schedule to book a party – this helps to fill the gap.
So check out my videos and let me know what you think.
Have a ThirtyOne-derful day!
