Counting Our Blessings In November

Halloween is behind us so the next BIG day is Thanksgiving paired with Black Friday, right?  So let’s kick off November with some Thirty One excitement…

Thirty One’s top selling product for years has been the Large Utility Tote…BUT the biggest complaint is the fact it sags when it wasn’t full.  The solution…… The Stand Tall Insert!  And the best part about it is it is on SALE this month!!!!  So let’s check out some of the great ways you can grab one (or more) of these beauties….

#1Have you every thought about being a part of Thirty One?

Have you been crunching numbers to try and figure out YOUR holiday budget?  No time for a part-time job?  You work full-time?  Are a mom taxi 24/7?  What if I told you, you could make up to $1000 and have a debt-free holiday?  Impossible right?  You are thinking not enough hours in your day….. I may be able to help with an investment of $99 by you:  How would you like to solve your holiday gift giving with 40% off our amazing products?  There are TWO Enrollments Kits which are  packed with some of this seasons top sellers – the Retro Metro Bag (my favorite) and the large utility tote which has been a company top seller since it was introduced!   You could grab the kit and use it for gifts….. that is holiday shopping on a budget!

An added BONUS is that during your enrollment month AND the following 4 months of being a consultant you get to earn even MORE!  In addition to your 25% commission, you will earn Wishes Rewards!  Rewards are good for FREE product, business supplies, VISA gift cards or Disney bucks.  You get to pick how you will use YOUR rewards!  Mix and match them to get the most savings this holiday season.

#2Be a Hostess with the Mostess!

I know not everyone is interested in joining our pink bubble – how about hosting your own party?  Did you know for just $200 in orders, YOU can have a qualified party.  You will get $25 in FREE product, 1 half price item and 1 hostess exclusive.  It only takes 6 orders of $35 to have a qualified party?  Thirty One just increased their FREE products for hostesses at the $600 level to $120 in FREE products, TWO half price items and TWO hostess exclusives!  This is super easy to reach since my average parties are about $640.  When you hit a $600 party, you will get double hostess credits this month.  PLUS you can get the Hostess Special which is the Holiday Party Bundle (a Fresh Market Thermal and a Perfect Party Set) for just $40!

I offer home, catalog/online, on the go (at your office or at a local restaurant) along with ever popular Facebook parties.  Which fits into YOUR busy schedule?  I will still send you a hostess packet so you can share it with your friends, family and co-workers.  How many people could you check off your holiday gift list with the free and discounted products you earn for hosting a party?  Maybe even treat yourself to something special.

#3 – Don’t want to join, and not interested in being a hostess…..

How about getting a jump on your holiday shopping with YOUR choice of TWO of Thirty One’s TOP sellers….. Yes, you can pick TWO of your favorite products with this month’s customer special.  With just a $35 purchase, you can mix and match two of FIVE products offered this month at discounted prices!.  Which one would you pick – the stand tall insert to keep your large utility tote from sagging, a littles carry all caddy, a Keepsake Planner, an Essential Storage Tote or the Boutique Backpack?

Would you like to get JUST what you want this holiday season?  Why not send me your holiday shopping list and then tell your hubby, children, significant other to call me and I will make sure YOU get what is on your wish list. Yes, I will set up a gift registry to make sure you get the Thirty One products YOU want.  I would say it is a win – win for everyone, right?

So, who is ready to get started on their holiday shopping?

Have a ThirtyOne-derful day!

Business Tips and Tricks

Increase Your Sales with Fundraisers

Since starting in direct sales. my goal has been for fundraisers to be huge part of my business.  Some months I am successful while others not so much.  The truth is I have not been intentional in my fundraising efforts.  I post pictures, encourage others but have not consistently made an effort to raise funds every month for a cause near and dear to my heart.

Fundraisers are a great way to harness the power of public relations. This is non-paid exposure of you or your business, basically free marketing for you! Who doesn’t like FREE marketing?  Fundraisers are a great way to promote your business, especially on Social Media and in local papers.  Take pictures when you deliver the fundraiser check to the charity.  When you post those photos on every form os Social Media, you not only  highlight the charity, those who contributed to the fundraiser but you will also get to acknowledge you and your business!   Fundraiser supporters WANT to see you make donations on their behalf while publicly sharing encourages other to do fundraisers with you!

I love these tips shared by a fellow Thirty One consultant….

TIP #1: Tell your hostess you will give them 25 cents for every person they get added to your customer group. What does this do? Gets your hostess sharing the link to your group with everyone she knows. Also make this a post in your public Facebook event for people to share! Say 50 people get added to your group… it cost you $12. Well worth the cost of advertising dollars!

TIP # 2: Make sure you make a post before, during, and after the event to tag the group, individual, or organization you’re donating to on all social media channels. LET PEOPLE SEE how easy it is to raise money with you! When you tag them, all of THEIR friends see!

TIP #3: Give your hostesses of the fundraiser 50 door prize slips and tell her if she gets 50 people to fill them out you’ll do a giveaway in the fundraiser. If she gets people to fill out a form with their email and information (make sure there’s boxes for them to check on booking info, recruiting info, etc.), do a fun giveaway. You can also do this as a Google Survey.

TIP #4: Always ask your hostess if she has “helpers”. These are people who will help her collect orders: Mom, aunt, sister, grandma, best friend…they can all get their OWN packet. The more people you have collecting orders, the better! What are some of YOUR favorite things to do with fundraisers?

So what happens when you consistently do fundraisers on a monthly basis?  Your sales are going to go through the roof!  You can actually build an empire while hitting all those sales incentives your company offers. Earn free trips, promote, and earn free product or giveaways your company offers by consistently hitting high sales while doing these fundraisers.  When you do a fundraiser, YOU get to keep the hostess rewards and THEY get all the commission. So you can start “buying” cheap giveaways for booking incentives and giveaways in your parties and your customer group. You can essentially run your business for free by doing this!

Fundraisers come in all shapes and sizes….what type of fundraisers do you do OR who is your favorite group to fundraise for?
