Bingo Fun for Your Business

How many of you like to play BINGO?  Be honest, do you have your good luck charms you always take with you?  Many years ago, I started playing BINGO at home parties and then moved to events and now with the surge of Facebook Parties, it is going to be another way to hold a Facebook LIVE party.  Yes, I said LIVE.  Of course, you can do it with lots of posts BUT wouldn’t your guests like to see you and the products up close?

First, you need a hostess or maybe a Mystery Hostess party or a battle of the hostesses… In April, I am going to do a Mystery Hostess BINGO party online playing  BINGO.

If you have a hostess, then you will begin by hostess coaching her on how to get people to join her party.  I do multiple forms of invites – snail mail, VIP invites with incentives to help the hostess collect orders, email and of course, Facebook.

Then you will need a BINGO board for YOUR business… This is for Thirty One, I’m not sure who did it but  I wish I could so I could thank her.  Set up a Facebook party (an event) for a 2 to 3 day period with the actual event happening on a specific time and day.  For example, the party may run from April 3 – 5 with the event actually happening on the 4th at 8:30PM.  Just because the event is actually only for a few days doesn’t mean you can’t post some fun things leading up to it.  I don’t usually go more than a week out with a Facebook party.  When I create the event in my VIP group, it will be for one night only.

The night before the party, you post a grid of products – your BINGO board and tell your guests to pick 5 numbers, and meet back at the designated party time. Then at the designated time, you meet back on FACEBOOK to pull numbers and share about your AMAZING products.  Now the prizes don’t have to be big BUT I would encourage you to do something that adds to your personal volume increasing your sales.

This is a great way to get interaction and share about your products.  The guests are all there hoping to win but they are also learning about the products.

Yes, the guests may pick some of the same numbers.  The directions are to choose 5 numbers BUT they do not have to be in a row or column.  Do you know what they will do?

When they are told to pick any number, they will subconsciously pick items they LIKE! A total AH-HA moment! Right?  You are starting to build a relationship with potential customers to help them shop for products they like and want.

This game works for you in so many ways!!

  1. It gets people excited and interacting in your FB party or VIP group.
  2. If you post it the night before the party, you can also remind them to come back the next night to join in the fun LIVE.
  3. Each time you ‘call’ a number, you are telling them about the product.
  4. You now have a WISH LIST for your customers and guests!!

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Post the Bingo grid, tell them to pick 5 numbers, any number, they do not need to be in order, give them a time frame and tell them when Bingo will be played.  I am playing the next day BUT you may want to post the board and play the same day.
  2. They need to post their numbers in the comments of the post with the Bingo grid
    I remind them a little before Bingo time
  3. You can post the grid again, say let’s play Bingo!
  4. If you are just posting pictures, in the comments of the post, you can post theI ‘called’ numbers.  You can pick numbers from a hat or post random numbers.  If you are doing it LIVE, you can post an album of the products so they can see the details without going to another link.
  5. When all 5 of their numbers have been called, they post BINGO!
  6. I give away a prize – something small and I will mail it to them.

The next day, send a message to everyone who played,  and thank them. If you are playing in your VIP Group, DO NOT sell or offer anything, just reach out to say thanks.  If you are doing this as a party for a hostess, then of course, in addition to thanking them, share the link for her party.

There are so many ways to change this up to fit YOUR business.  Can’t wait to see how it works for you….

Have a ThirtyOne-derful day!

Thirty One’s June Hostess & Customer Specials

Unknown

OMG!!!!   It’s June… last weekend was the “unoffical” start of summer.  Alright, so maybe I am pushing things BUT it was the start of the tourist (AKA shoobie) invasion at the Jersey Shore.  This month is full of graduations

I know, you are thinking… “I have NO time for a party“.  Money is tight with end of the year expenses.  What if I told you that YOU could reap all of the benefits of a “home party” without the work?  What if I could meet you at the ball park or in the parking lot at work?  What if you just carried a catalog with you and sent all of your friends to an online Facebook party that was fun?

I know “too good to be true”, right?  The truth is I have a party to fit your lifestyle this month.  And WHY am I willing to do this?  This months’ Customer and Hostess Special is WAY too good to pass up.

#1 –  June’s Customer Special is AMAZING!

Thirty One’s Customer Special for June is the MEDIUM UTILITY TOTE AND the STAND TALL INSERT for the medium utility tote!  Have you never heard of this product? Well, once a year it comes out for a limited time.  The BEST part is the addition of the Stand Tall Insert.  The perfect way to let your tote stand on its own.  It also adds pockets to the inside of your tote.

Let’s Get Ready to Grill

maxresdefaultThe weather is finally starting to feel like spring and the rain may stop soon….so thoughts turn to grilling.  I LOVE to grill and miss it now that we are in the condo.  I can’t wait to be some place where I can have my grill set-up on our porch.

So be sure to put your grill on the to-do list to keep your family safe this summer.

97e8e5b428a5859a5d36433dc31e7a22

1. Make sure your BBQ is on a flat surface, away from sheds, trees or shrubs.  Propane and charcoal grills should only be used outdoors. Keep them away from the house, deck railings, and out from under eaves and overhanging branches. Don’t use them in garages.  Keep children, and pets away.  Don’t leave it unattended. Keep a bucket of water or sand nearby just in case of an emergency. Ensure your barbecue is cool before you try to move it.

2. Clean your BBQ grill each time you use it.  Deep clean it every three months. Check your BBQ’s cleaning instructions before you start using a scouring pad, to ensure that the cleaning equipment you use won’t damage your grill or invalidate your warranty.

3. A basic BBQ cleaning kit should include: Rubber gloves – to protect your hands. Brush with stainless-steel bristles – to remove baked-on food and carbonized grease. Lint-free cloth to clean, dry and buff surfaces. Warm soapy water and a non-abrasive sponge pad – to remove stains. Mild glass cleaner – to clean painted surfaces Stainless-steel cleaner – to clean polished metal surfaces

4. Bake off grease deposits. You can do this by leaving your BBQ with the heat and lid on for 15 minutes to bake grease and food deposits into a blackened layer. It is easier to remove than liquid grease.  When the BBQ has cooled down, remove the coals and ash from a charcoal grill or disconnect the gas bottle from a gas grill to start cleaning.

5. Clean your barbecue including the lid and racks using a stainless-steel grill brush.  Wash the racks and the lid with warm soapy water and a non-scratch sponge pad. Clean stains from painted lids with warm soapy water and polish up with a mild glass cleaner and lint-free cloth. Use a mild stainless-steel cleaner on the metal parts of the lid or metal shelves.   Clean the cavity of your BBQ, removing big deposits of food particles or grease and then washing the inside with warm, soapy water and a sponge. Rinse and dry with a lint-free cloth.

Always remember that charcoal grills and campfires remain hot even after the fire has been put out.

Teach children how to stop, drop and roll if an article of clothing ever catches fire. Young children can learn best if you practice the steps with them, rather than just talking about them.
