Set a goal
Why do you want to have a party? Are you looking to earn free product? Need an excuse for a fun night with friends? Ready to show off your new house or a remodel? We all need more cooking and meal prep tips, and advice for living a more natural or healthy lifestyle. Maybe some style tips; or inspiration on pairing what you already have with just the right accessories?
Get educated by your party professional
Nobody wants a flop of a party. Let the expert educate you. They have the experience and expertise to help you reach your party goals. Let them guide you on possible themes, food and beverage choices, as well as the best viewing situation for the type of product they sell.
Typically less than a quarter of the people you personally invite will actually be able to attend. With that being the case, don’t prejudge when making your invitation list. Your best friend may not wear jewelry, but they may have a birthday event that they need a gift for. Don’t leave out those out-of-state family and friends either – set up an online event so they can order as well.
Invite and remind
It’s important to invite in more than one way, and more than once. Don’t rely entirely on a Facebook event or group for communication. Try a save the date via Facebook messenger or email, followed by an official invitation via phone call or – gasp! snail mail postcard. Text reminders the day before guarantee your party isn’t far from your guest’s minds. Make sure to include directions and specifics they should know about the party – if it’s a spa party to dress accordingly.
Make sure you understand your rewards
Save yourself any disappointment or frustration. Make sure that you completely understand how the rewards program works to reap the most of your benefits.
Cover last-minute logistics
Make sure your product expert knows exactly how to get to your house. Do they need a table, an outlet, a sink? There’s nothing like discovering that your expert plans to bake a cake, but your oven is on the fritz.
Before the party, talk with your expert about when you are closing the party so everyone can be on the same page about when they will be receiving their items.
When the items are delivered, make sure to follow up with your guests. Make sure they’re happy with their products – even if it’s just a quick text or email. It’s the little things that mean that the next time you throw a party, you are still the talk of the town.
