Thank you for booking a party with me! In this hostess packet please find catalogs, order forms, a hostess flyer/wish list, the Monthly Special Flier and 5 order forms. Your job is to get excited about some free products and to get your friends to RSVP... my job is to get YOU excited and help you earn as much for FREE as I can! These are some great tools to use to get there. 1. Lists: Make your wishlist & guest list. Once you have both done, snap a pic and text them to me 518-779-2882 or send them to me via Facebook Messenger. 2. Invites: Want me to mail out paper invites with mini catalogs? No problem just send me their addresses! Next, send this little blurb to your peeps: "Hey Jen! I am so excited for Spring that I am hosting a fun Thirty-One party on (insert date here) . May I send you an invite?" Once you've done this, I will add you to the event as a host. Then you invite the ladies that said "yes" to an invite! (Make it personal by sending each friend their own message... you'll be surprised at how many more people will respond! And people LOVE getting mail that's not a bill these days, so even if you are having a Facebook Party, a paper invite in a fun pink envelope makes them excited for your party! Don't have their address? Just ask! It will make them even more excited!) 3. Party Time! Be present at the online portion of your party and be sure to comment on each post, engage with your guests and post pics of your wish list items and favorite items in use. Hop on and tag your friends, help me start some conversations! It's more fun that way! Send personal reminders to your party guests the day before and day of your party to ensure they join in on the fun. 4. Follow Up: Not everyone can make it to your party, but they can still shop. Invite them to shop your party and give them some product ideas that they will love. Inviting about 50 people is perfect. Usually around ¼ of the guests you invite will actually attend and your goal is to get a minimum of 10-12 guests at your party so we can get you TONS for FREE! Finally, I suggest trying to collect at least $200 in orders prior to your actual party. When using the paper order forms PLEASE gather ALL of their contact information just in case there is an issue with their order. This includes, name, phone number, email address and home address. If your guests would like to shop online to place the order, they can order though your party on my site by going to www.mythirtyone.com/melissawilkinson and clicking in the box with your name and clicking SHOP NOW.
Questions? Let me know! Can't wait!
All payments are due at the time of the party by credit card if paying online. If a friend or family member would like to place an order from you not online and not use a credit card; please have them give you cash. If they choose to write a check, I ask that you have it made out to you and then pay with your credit card. I do not accept personal checks. This makes it easier when closing the party as I have to pay for the items when I place the order. If we are partying at your house, I will be at your house between 30-45 minutes before the party starts. I am here to support you and help you earn all the products on your wish list. If at any time you or your guests have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. We will close your party within 48 hours of your event so that all guests can receive their products in a timely manner and you can get your hands on your freebies sooner. This is why it is so important to focus on those pre-orders before the party.
Thank you! See You at the party!!!! Sarah PS: Please see steps below for how to calculate an order:
Example: Guest purchases Large Utility Tote for $35 Product Subtotal = $35 8% Delivery Charge = 2.08 Total = $37.80 Sales tax 7% (depending on state) = 2.65 Total = $40.45 If they want, they can round up their change and donate to Thirty-One Gives and make it an even $41. If they are out of town, add an extra $4 to their delivery charge and calculate the tax after that. If your guests want their orders shipped directly to them, they can select "Direct Ship" and their order will be submitted before the rest of the party.
