It’s a busy busy world we live in these days between work, kids, kid activities, school, housework and a social life. With life being so busy all the time the thought of having a home party can be down right overwhelming for people. People think it takes up a lot of time, planning and effort. And let’s be honest, they’re not that far off from the truth.
While nothing can completely replace the benefits of an in person presentation that a home party provides there is something that does come close. Technology is ramped these days, it’s literally every where you go! And whether we like to admit it or not most of us spend endless hours using the technology of smart phones, tablets and computers. It only makes sense that we bring this technology and it’s high usage into the work place and figure out how it can help benefit our direct sale businesses. After all, if you can’t beat them – join them, right?!
Almost everyone has a Facebook account and spend lots of time on the social networking site. This is a great platform to use in our direct sale businesses for virtual parties. This winter has been absolutely brutal for most of the country so the chances are you probably have had to cancel one or two parties because of either horrible weather conditions or simply being snowed in. Well with a virtual Facebook party there is no reason to cancel because there’s no reason for any of the guests to leave the comforts of their own homes!
It’s so easy to do Facebook parties! All you have to do is create a Facebook event page, add your hostess as a host to the event and ask her to send an event invitation to everyone she wants or thinks would be interested in the products being presented. Facebook parties only take about an hour to complete, at the time of the event people simply log into Facebook and go to the event page where the posts will show up on the event’s timeline. Tailor games for an online approach and giveaway a product or two to get everyone involved and more inclined to place an order.
