As of 2020, Facebook has a whopping 2.45 billion monthly active users (yeah, you read that right!). That means with technology and the way we live our lives on social media today, it only makes sense to try Facebook parties for your direct sales business.
As a leader in the direct sales field, I grew my business and my team almost entirely through Facebook. And while I know trying something new can be a little daunting, it’s even scarier to think about all the business you might be missing by not giving it a shot.
Not convinced yet? Check out my top 5 reasons to jump on the Facebook party train for your direct sales business.
Everybody’s doing it
It’s safe to say that you’ve probably attended a Facebook party a friend or relative hosted over the years. Facebook parties aren’t new, but they also aren’t going anywhere any time soon!
They’re fun, entertaining, and super easy. There’s nothing to pack into the car, unpack or set up and clean-up is an absolute breeze! Talk about convenience. Plus you can…
Expand past your local market
Break out of your bubble with Facebook parties! There’s an endless supply of people you can reach online instead of having to keep reworking your warm market within your town limits. On social media, you can have guests come from all over the world through the power of your host’s connections. It’s pretty amazing!
Party in your PJs
So many of us are ridiculously busy all day every day and while it’s great to have an actual GNO where you get gussied up and go out on the town with your besties, realistically, it doesn’t happen often and when it does, the thought of all that preparation and possible late-night escapades can be exhausting and stressful. This is where Facebook parties are a welcome solution – it’s a Girls’ Night IN – where your host and her friends from near AND far can get together virtually in their pajamas, sight unseen, to party and have a great time together. This means you too! No worries about what to wear, your hair or if you need to snuggle your little one to sleep while partying on your phone. It’s the best, seriously.
Grow your Team
Aside from getting to learn about all your amazing products, when your Host and her guests see how entertaining and easy Facebook parties are to throw and attend, they’ll be more likely to join your team if they’ve been interested in a side hustle or thinking about changing careers. FB parties are the perfect recruiting tool because they get to see firsthand how much fun your business really is and they also get to know you before you become their super cool upline and mentor.
Perfect for Introverts
Not everyone is an outwardly social butterfly in person. Some people prefer the comfort of home, yet they still may crave socialization, just not face to face. This is where Facebook parties are the perfect solution! Being able to interact in a safe, non-threatening and stress-free environment is a win-win for an introvert. She can shop and engage when she wants to without having to worry about feeling the pressures of physical interaction.
These are the top 5 reasons why you should really try a Facebook party to grow your business.
