Pop-Up Marketing for Profits: Home Party Sales Generator

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

Write lists in your articles. People like lists and they are more likely to share them.
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.
Use numbers in your titles. Example: “10 Best Ways to xyz"
Use “How to” in your titles. Please do love a HOW TO!
Use words like “Ultimate” or “Best” “Stunning” “Free” “Secrets”
“Discover” “Easy” “The Only ___ You’ll Need to ____” These are magnetic.
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

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 old. They knew that Kiki would be the perfect fit, the fifth member and she was nine years old. The question is: are they brave enough to invite the meanest girl on the planet to join their team?

Why did you write it?

>> I wrote my first book Sewing a Friendship to spread my message that friendships are created when we have the courage to include others.

Who is it for?

>> From the review by James A. Cox, Editor-in-Chief: “Sewing a Friendship” is an unusual, inspiring artistic conception/creation about empowering girls to overcome obstacles and use creativity to grow together. Created by 10-year-old author/illustrator Natalie Tinti, “Sewing a Friendship” is a truly unique and life enhancing book. Although the target audience might well be 7-10 years old girls, the positive messages about inclusion and imagination will also appeal to others from teens to adults.

If you had the ability to solve one problem in the world today, what would it be and why?

>>I believe the most important thing in the world that I would solve is to show/teach people to be the best friend yourself and look for positive sides in others because most people don’t feel happy about themselves, don’t appreciate what they have, don’t respect other’s people opinions.

What is your best advice for young people who are shy when it comes to making friends?

>>I believe shyness when you think is something wrong with you. So, find what is good about yourself that you can be proud, happy about it and have the courage to include others.

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 purpose but I wanted to also teach others how Klout comes into play, and what it is and the importance of it.

What is Klout?

Klout is a company based out of San Francisco that provides social media analytics to measure someone's influence across major social networks such as Twitter, Facebook, Google Plus and LinkedIn.

Klout measures your network size and more importantly how well others in your network respond to your output. Klout measures your engagement with others and if it is high, you are considered to be influential online.

Why is KLOUT an important tool for social media?

The reason Klout is important is because what you do online spills over to your offline world (I realize I had already said that so you can edit that out if you want) considering that social media is prevalent now and that will continue on. If you are in the marketing, social media, SEO, coaching, writing field or if you are a business owner and professionally working with the public, having a high Klout score is very important. This could be a huge determining factor on whether or not you are given to speaking and guest blogging opportunities.

If you are seeking a job in any of those fields, a big determining factor as well is your score in conjunction of your past experience. Having a high score can get you extra nice bonuses such as free hotel upgrades, meals, and other great free or discounted products. Not to mention if you are a business owner, in a matter of time, sooner rather than later, potential clients and customers will be looking at your scores (if they are not already) to see how engaging you truly are.

If you are a business owner especially in a field where any kind of marketing is involved and you have a low Klout score, it is an indication that you really are not engaging online which is what a client who wants to hire you is looking for. That alone could get them to search onward for a competitor who may be more active and engaging online.

Visit Miriam's blog for even more info!

Because social media is so prevalent now, people really need to know how to use social media in a proper way and understand effective methods that will encourage others in their networks to interact with them on a regular basis. I cover the basics of what needs to be done in order to be successful with social media which will increase anyone's Klout score.

Who is KLOUT going to benefit the most?

Anyone can benefit if they have a reason improve their social media online activities but it is essential for anyone in the marketing, SEO, social media (and many social media consultants are not getting this), coaching, writing, web design or any field where the public is dealt with on a professional basis. It is also a must read for business owners. Even if they don't have time to manage their own social media, if they hire a consultant or manager to take care of their social media, they will know what to look for in a good social media manager. I will continue on...

Is this your first book, Miriam?

No this is not my first book. I actually had written two other books in the New Age niche as I am also an astrologer but not practicing so much now since I am really focusing on my social media work. I did not do well selling those books initially anyway because the niche was too narrow and I did not use social media properly to really work it.

However since I learned plenty of tricks with social media along the way I have been more successful. However even though I love anything to do with astrology and spirituality, it is not my passion so much now. Social media is. I am also an owner of a business that provides SEO, social media, blogging services and mobile web design and marketing called Gemini Rising Ltd and that has been around since June 2011. People can connect with me on

Thanks, Miriam!

Tips: How Video Can Promote Your Business

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 exposure  and 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 they offer.


Good informational/educational videos are an excellent way to market and promote a business, book or creative endeavor. Since you have the ability to use an interesting format, sound, photos, etc., it takes it from a static web page to visually-enhanced and intriguing promotional opportunity.


Video can be used to:


-Build credibility: Let your audience know who you are. Include a picture of yourself and start building name recognition.


-Use the visual aspect to teach: Showcase yourself teaching how to use your products, record testimonials, showcase results people have gotten using your products, etc. In other words, put a visually-memorable medium in their minds.


-Show the world your personality: People buy from people disguised as businesses. You know you prefer to buy from one website vs. another that may have the exact same items. One has an interface you trust, prices you like or just the fact that the owner makes himself available.


-Develop a series: Break down tips or steps into a series of video and use them to keep bringing back your audience to get more. If you give everything in one video, you’re forced to come up with new material for each, plus you run the risk of creating a long, boring video (which, unless very well-done, most people won’t take the time to watch.


-Keep your videos short and pleasant: A running time of under three minutes is optimal. Most people don’t have the attention span to devote to more, unless they are very interested in your topic. Use soft, pleasant music or narrate the video yourself. Silent videos are dull, so try to use sound of some type.


-Use photos and pictures to illustrate your point: If you’re doing a live film video, you’re showing yourself, but also be sure to use props and your products to illustrate a point. Just a talking head in front of a video camera is completely overused and somewhat dull (unless you’re really funny or entertaining, which many of us are not!).


-Videos created using slides vs. filmed content can place photos of products, people, etc. in them to make them more interesting. Use animation sparingly. No one wants to be jarred from slide to slide with spinning text and zooming transitions. Choose one slide transition for all slides and only use animation on every other slide or at least choose a few to remain static to give the eye a break.


Using video can help your business get the attention it deserves. For more information on building buzz for your business, GET YOURSPOTLIGHT!
