Hostess coaching is one of the best ways to teach others how to put together the perfect party and acquire new direct sales. There is a lot of work that goes into this form of marketing, but those who are able to master it are able to get ahead of the competition.
I have been doing this for a long time and have learned a lot of new tips and tricks along the way.
One of the best tips that I have learned along the way has come in the form of personal invitations. I hate the idea of giving out generic invitations that go to everyone without even a hit of personalization. This will lead to a lot of cancellations as people want to be cared for. They want to feel important and you have to do this by doing personal invitations.
In my humble opinion, fun postcards like the one shown above are the best invitations for direct sales home parties.
- Guests can easily hang them up on the fridge or bulletin board and the important information about the party is right on front.
- The back of the invitation can be personalized with a handwritten note to your guest.
- The more colorful and fun the invitation is, the better! You want guests to know they’re going to have a blast at your party.
- You can pre-stamp them and add them to hostess packets – the only thing your hostess has to do is fill them in and mail them out. No more licking envelopes!
I have found that you should take a range of approaches when inviting people. Do not just stick to the phone or to sending out e-mails. This might lead to average results. Mix things up and use a range of these options together to create the perfect plan that leads to more people attending your direct sales home party.
