Direct sales has been mainly a party plan business since the days of Tupperware. The rise of popularity in social media has created many more avenues of income to help you succeed in direct sales. However, parties still have their place and can be one of the best ways to get new leads, find new hostesses, and discover people to join your team. Thankfully, you no longer have to go to a stranger’s home and set up all your stuff to get the benefits of a great party. (The stories I could tell.) You can now do virtual parties on Facebook, Sqweee, or many other platforms if you get creative.
Why do you need to do theme parties?
If you have been doing parties for a while now, you might be starting to find that they are getting monotonous and you just can’t imagine doing another party using the same old script. Or you are starting to see your engagement tank and are looking for ways to increase it and have more fun. Enter the theme party!
Direct sales theme parties have been found to increase engagement and sales, a consultant’s two best friends. Guests love to talk about the fun they had at your theme party, which creates buzz for your business. They also make your guests more likely to book their own party because they know they can have a fun theme too.
How to have a direct sales theme party?
Now that I have convinced you to do a theme party you may be wondering what to do next. Once you have found a great idea for a theme party, the next step is to go where all great things start, Pinterest. I like to think of Pinterest as just a giant visual search engine.
Type in the search box your theme party idea such as “Taco Tuesday” and you will find a plethora of ideas to get your creative juices flowing. You can type in “free taco digital papers” and you’ll find some great backgrounds for your party images. I personally love to create my images in Canva because I can search right there for some many great elements to include in those party graphics.
Some other things you can do to make the party more about your theme are to share recipes or ask questions around the theme. For example, if you were doing our “Taco Tuesday” theme you could ask, “Which do you prefer soft shell or hard shell tacos?” This is not only a fun way to engage with each other, but it helps drive up engagement which helps your party get seen even more. When I share recipes for a theme, a lot of times I’ll create a whole Pinterest board of them and then share that into my party and suggest that while they are there they should like my Pinterest page.
You can also send the hostess some goodies that have to go with the theme either in a hostess packet or as a surprise she opens during her party. One last tip, if you really want to shine, is to go the Dollar store or a Goodwill and find some fun props or costume pieces of sorts you can use with the theme during a welcome live. Let’s deviate from our “Taco Tuesday” theme to maybe a pool theme. You could easily go find a sunhat, big sunglasses, or a beach ball to have in your welcome video with you. Show your personality off to your guests.
