Wouldn’t it be great if you could increase your customer base by a huge amount without having to leave the comfort of your own home? Your direct sales business will take a huge step forward if you throw virtual Facebook parties!
It would be fun to host several parties a week or even one at a time.
The word “virtual party” describes exactly what it is: a party held online or virtually. It’s a simple but fun way to spend time with friends, family, and your team.
Virtual parties are hosted for a variety of reasons by individuals and companies. You can also host a virtual baby shower, bridal shower, or birthday party on a personal level. These events are a popular choice for businesses and are ideal for celebrating end-of-project anniversaries, holiday parties, virtual retreats, and team birthdays.
Put some thought into what you post! Posting a lot of content in hopes of getting a hit is not as beneficial as getting more engagement (likes, reactions, comments).
It is more important to post quality posts than quantity in this case.
Additionally, keep in mind that Facebook will only show the most popular posts first, so keeping your posts in numerical order no longer works.
Many successful consultants have had success with a short party that includes 6 posts in 30 minutes or 45 minutes!
Your party script doesn’t have to go over 10 posts, even if you have Pre-Party posts and After-Party posts.
You will be less overwhelming to your guests, and they will be able to catch up easily on previous posts or important information if they miss a day.
Information in bite-sized chunks is more effective for people.
Your party should be a place of life, not anxiety!
Participation is important, so allow time for comments and reactions.
Too many posts too close together will result in your followers not knowing where to go or feeling pressured to give up.
Create consistent content that your guests will find interesting by spreading your postings out.
Before the Party starts, post once or twice, perhaps early in the morning and late in the evening, or close to the actual time of the Party. Doing so demonstrates that you are both active and not pushy.
You can post more slowly (more time between posts) and get better feedback if you post carefully-crafted content during the party.
Be aware of how many parties you have run the same template at the same time and keep it low.
According to Merriam-Webster, spam refers to unwanted commercial messages (such as e-mail, text messages, or internet postings) sent to a large number of recipients or posted to many places at once.
This type of behavior is monitored by Facebook.
As a general rule, you shouldn’t post more than what you would manually.
You should consider organizing several parties at once, and take full advantage of your time with the host and guests.
Make sure you’re rotating through a few different party scripts for parties you’ve got running simultaneously.
Create a different script template for each product section in your company catalog, or use fun themes to highlight your products.
It is important to change the language in similar posts to make them look different on Facebook.
In the case of three distinct templates, you might think about three different ways (and pictures) to introduce yourself or your organization.
By doing this, you keep your posts fresh and won’t post the same thing everywhere at the same time.
Make your groups smaller and more participatory.
You have unlimited access to these new people through online parties.
Make sure that the guests that you invite to each party are intentionally chosen to avoid spamming.
An intentional party with fewer guests is more likely to be successful than a party with everyone on your friend list attending.
The target audience for this type of party or product should be people who are likely to enjoy it.
Approximately forty-five people should be invited.
Personalize your invitations and send them in batches of 10 or 15 at a time, and keep sending them until the next day.
Some people may not respond, but those who do are more likely to stay involved and might order more than you expected.
It’s more important to make a real connection with someone than to mass-add them.
There may be a template of party posts your upline or other team members like to use, which they would be willing to share with you. If you use this as a guide, you’ll be off to a great start!
You remember that spam definition, don’t you?
Do not only consider how many times you intend to use this template but also how many times others may need it in the future!
If you keep posting the same stuff, Facebook will think you are posting from a compromised account.
If you were face-to-face with a new person, speak in your messages as you would if you were with them.
You should consider putting organic photos in the place of stock images, or at least modifying the original photos with a unique watermark.
