Don’t panic or feel overwhelmed, I’ll give you my 5 secrets on how to rock a direct sales Facebook party to boost sales and hostess rewards! Read on, take notes, and let’s get partying!
Secret #1 – Success begins and ends with your hostess.
As a direct sales consultant, you’ll want to make sure your hostess is on board with having an online Facebook party and is excited to participate! Answer any questions your hostess has and go over the hostess rewards with her. The more excited your hostess is, the more her guests will be excited and have fun interacting at the party!

Secret #2 – Exclusive Invite List
With Facebook parties, the temptation for your hostess is to invite everyone and anyone! Stop! Don’t do it! For one, friends and family do not like being a part of a mass invite and Facebook does not like this either. Do not have your hostess land in Facebook jail! Coach your hostess to send a personal message to those friends and family members who would enjoy attending a direct sales Facebook party. Have invites sent to those who are truly interested and you’ll end up with an exclusive invite list filled with guests excited for a fun party!
Secret #3 – It’s all in the timing
The timing of a direct sales Facebook party is VERY important. The day, time and length of a Facebook party can affect how many people show up and interact which directly affects your sales potential. You want to set up yourself for success and once you have the right date and time, you are half way there!
Secret #4 – Music, Games, Excitement
A party without music, games, and excitement is not a party right?! My best tip for hosting a rockin’ online Facebook party is to think about a theme. A Facebook party theme will jump start you into coming up with the kinds of music, games, and interactive questions you want to ask throughout your party. Keep it fun and entertaining, and your guests will have a great time learning about your direct sales products and your company!
Secret #5 – Seal the Deal
Everyone loves a special offer or an exclusive deal! When it comes to a direct sales Facebook party, you’ll definitely want to offer something special to the guests who showed up and participated. I find a free gift with purchase or small discount off of purchases within a certain time frame help to seal the deal! Create a sense of urgency and watch the sales come in!
