Pop-Up Marketing for Profits: Home Party Sales Generator

Image
Home party sales are the lifeblood of direct selling. If you don't have bookings, chance are you don't have sales or recruits. Although many can make it online, this is a business where the "personal touch" is prized.

How to get that?

Have you considered having a POP UP party? Have you seen the pop-up restaurants in many cities? Or maybe, the pop-up boutiques or art galleries? It's a trend and you can be a part of it!

Holding a pop-up party or boutique party is just like having a little boutique in your living room. It's simple and fun.

Just set up your wares, put out some marketing materials, pour some wine and invite your friends to shop. It's much less formal than a traditional sales party and everyone can mix and mingle, try things and know it's a comfortable environment.

To double the fun, check our our Direct Sales Guide: GET BOOKED SOLID! This will help you take this concept to the next level!

6 Article Writing Tips that Sizzle

Image
1. Write lists in your articles. People like lists and they are more likely to share them. 2. Be sure to number your lists within your articles. People like to know how much longer the article is expected to be. Also, keep them brief. 3. Use numbers in your titles. Example: “10 Best Ways to xyz" 4. Use “How to” in your titles. Please do love a HOW TO! 5. Use words like “Ultimate” or “Best” “Stunning” “Free” “Secrets” “Discover” “Easy” “The Only ___ You’ll Need to ____” These are magnetic. 6. Make your titles really good. For example, this is a sucky title: “My recipe for vegetable soup”@ and this is an awesome title: “My Spicy, Super-Simple, 10-Minute Veggie Soup Recipe” – Describe your titles with lot of visual words and adjectives.

Read our interview with Natalie Tini, a young prolific author Her new book is Sewing a Friendship So, Natalie, you're a young author! Is this something you want to do when you grow up?
>> I think so. I believe that writing is one of my talents. I wrote and illustrated 12 books and I am working on another 5 new books right now.
What is your book about?
>>My first book is about four friends and a rival. Each has a specialty. Sokron is a visual artist, Meeka loves numbers and math problems, Nina is sensitive to sound and music and Jonsy is sensitive to feelings. They decided to have a PINK SLEEPOVER to celebrate the end of school year. Meeka came up with the idea that the four of them should go to the park first. Once at the park, they met Kiki Shaver who was known as the meanest girl on the planet. Later on, they found an invitation for the fashion show; however, the rules indicated there must be five people on a team and one model from each team must be at least nine years …

How to get KLOUT with HIGH SOCIAL MEDIA RANKINGS

New Book on Amazon: The Secret to High Social Media Rankings How to Get KLOUT





Read our interview with the author, Miriam Slozberg:

So, Miriam, why did you write this book?

I wrote this ebook because the fact of the matter is, social media is extremely prevalent to the point that is it taking over not just traditional forms of advertising (radio, TV, print) but the first thing people do if they want to find out about you is to look at your social networks and activity. If you say you are a professional in a particular field but yet there is nothing that you have done online that shows that, no one will take you seriously. The fact of the matter is, what you do online spills onto your offline world. That is how prevalent social media is.
Social media is a huge passion of mine and always has been. It took me a while to learn the proper methods of using it but once I learned, it helped me in so many ways that I wanted to help others as well. So I had written this ebook for partially that pur…

Quick Eyeball-It Mushroom Soup: Fast, easy, delicious recipe

Image
For those nights when you need something fast, nutritous and delicious without hassle: Eyeball-it Mushroom Soup Mushrooms
Stock: Vegetable and Chicken
Carrots, Celery, Onion, Thyme
Cream or Half and Half
Sherry
Olive oil/Butter
This is mostly an non-measured soup and super easy to make. It's very hearty and satisfying on a cold winter evening! Take a soup pot and add a healthy drizzle of olive oil and a 1" pat of butter. Let it melt. Add 1/2 of one yellow diced onion and one garlic clove (minced). Cook until onion starts to turn clear (about 4 minutes). Add chopped mushrooms--use any you like, but chop them the same size for even cooking. I use portabella, shitakke, and button. Add some thyme (about 1 tsp.). Cook for about 5 minutes. You can also add some diced carrots and celery. Once mushrooms and veggies are starting to cook, add 2 cans of vegetable stock and one can of chicken stock. Add a healthy dose of sherry (about 1/4 cup). Cover and cook on simmer for about 40 minutes.…

Tips: How Video Can Promote Your Business

Image
Top 7 Ways to Use Video to Promote Yourself

Authors that self-publish (and even those that go the traditional publishing route) need promotion to sell their books. It’s a fact. Getting that usually requires lots of articles posted on the web, radio shows, tele-seminars, etc. Generally, just a lot of time to “get the word out” and build credibility and exposureand try to drive traffic to ultimately buy their book.

Savvy artists are the same. They need to get their art out to the world. This helps build a following, increase credibility and eventually start getting their art into
the hands of those that collect and appreciate it. Video is a prime promotional vehicle for such a visual medium.

Small business owners already know that marketing is important; but are they taking full advantage of the low-cost alternatives available to them? Marketing and promoting with vides helps increase their ability to get the word out about their business, showcase themselves and build an interest in what …

Cheap Leads for Your Home-Based Opportunity

Image
Getting good leads is crucial for any business, but getting targeted leads that are interested in home-based and direct sales options is a true boon.

Getting a list of proven interested parties can be as easy as a few clicks of your mouse and a $5.00 bill! Check it out!



WAHMs...need leads?

Image
If you're in network marketing, party plan or direct sales, you know the value of leads that are primed--they know you and feel comfortable with you.

These are key to an easier sale and even possibly a new downline member. If you're looking for leads like this, there are a number of ways to get them. First, don't pay for them. Why? There are methods you can use that will ensure you a steady stream of leads.

One idea, if you're in home party sales and rely on working parties to get the bulk of your sales and recuits, is to forget the old sales party. These days parties are being tailored to mirror all different uses and styles. For example, an edu-party is a party that features an educational slant. It needn't be boring or dull. A simple cooking lesson would be a great fit for anyone selling home or kitchen items. You could do a basic accupressure class to relieve stress points and throw a candle party at the same time.

Getting creative is the name of the game. If …

3 "Do It Now" Profit Strategies for Home Party Plan Sales

Image
1. Create separate sections of audience and then put together your sales event. For example: If you can put together a teen event for just teens or working moms with just working moms, your outcome will be better. Always know your audience and then tailor your party to them.



2. Always have a proven marketing strategy to get people to your event as well as hold the event. One contact? Not usually enough. You need to touch people several times in order to build the relationship and get them interested in your party. You also need to have a system in place to get your party to hold. (See Grow Big 60+ Ideas for Party Plan Profits for some ideas to do this.)



3. At every show you should have a "today only" special. This creates urgency and excitement. Make it good and you'll see great profits from this alone. Just be sure to let everyone know that the special will end as soon as your party does!

WAHMS-- Get found on Google easier, faster

Image
WAHMS...do you have a great site or blog that just isn't getting the views and traffic you need?

Here's an idea (it takes maybe 30-60 minutes a week, but it's worth the effort). To get higher search ranking (seen on the first couple pages of Google), you need quality content as well as quality backlinks. You likely know it already, but how to get those high-quality backlinks is somewhat of a mystery.

A couple ideas:

1. You can spend some time going to forums and commenting on high-level sites. Always be sure to add your URL in your comment and voila...a backlink from a high-level site. For instance, if you comment in the forums on amazon or a similar site, you site will have a link back from that site.

2. You can have someone do this for you. There are several sites where you can pay someone to do this (for as little as five dollars on fiverr.com and other sites like odesk.com). Be sure to work with those who understand your business and the ins and outs of backlinking p…

A glimpse into the direct selling world today

Great new book on amazon! 
According to Direct Selling Association statistics, 85 percent of direct sales people spend fewer than 30 hours per week working their business. Working part-time is the reason many people go into the business of direct sales in the first place. But what are some tried-and-true methods that will help you work smarter, not longer?

A top-level producer with one company has worked with her company for over six years. A mother of three and an elementary school teacher, she’s taking time off from teaching to work her direct sales business while her children are small.

“Touch your business every day,” she advises. “It is easy, being at home, to let things slide. I make sure, even on lazy days, to do something productive toward my goals.”

Another top seller home schools her four children, manages a successful career with a skincare direct sales company, is an author and a motivational speaker, and owns a company that provides recognition gifts and ideas to suppor…

WAHM Tips for Business Growth

1. Be Active in Social Media - everybody knows that social media is growing by leaps and bounds. It is important to get your name out there, but did you know that there is a certain way you have to use these outlets to gain the traffic you desire?

2. Be Unique In Your Marketing Endeavors - don't follow the cookie cutter type of announcements or sales - be creative, put a splash of personality in your advertising and make your customers WANT to contact you to see what you can do for them.

3. Cater to a Niche, not the World - We all want to make money and provide for our families, but targeting the entire world is not the way to proceed. Niche markets are far more lucrative - figure out what your business entails, who your target audience is and cater directly to them.
4. Market Effectively – what does this mean? If you work for a direct sales company or party plan company, you want to make the most of your sales materials. Distributing them to everyone is a waste of money, but focu…

Party Plan, Wahm and Direct Sales Pros

1. After the sale be sure to follow up with the customer. You'd be surprised how often this simple tip is overlooked! You could follow-up with a "thank you" email and include an advertisement for other products you sell. You should follow-up every month.

2. Upsell to your customers. When they're at your order page, tell them about a few extra related products you have for sale. Make it easy for them to just add it to their original order.

3. Tell your customers if they refer four customers to your web site, they will receive a full rebate of their purchase price. This will turn one sale into three sales.

4. When you sell a product, give your customers the option of joining an affiliate program so they can make commissions selling your product. This will multiply the sale you just made.

5. Sell the reprint/reproduction rights to your products. You could …
