Hostess Coaching

Once you have a party booked, spend time Hostess Coaching. The time you invest with every Hostess before the party is an investment in your business.

Work with each Hostess to create the perfect guest list, coaching her to invite two more guests than she normally would – use a blended invitation approach, with a mixture of emails, texts … whatever works best.

Think about the kind of impact two extra guests can have. On average, every guest spends $80 per party. If you’re partying once a week this month – with two extra guests at each party – that’s 8 extra guests … or about an extra $640 in Personal Volume this month!

Two more guests at each party means more FREE products for your Hostess, plus extra commission for you!

Here are some tips to give your Hostesses.

1. Communicate to your Hostesses that sending out the party invitations is a service that you offer. “I know that you’re busy and I want to be a great partner for you with this party so I would be happy to mail the invitations out for you. That way I already have your friends information in my system and we can get the party closed and submitted faster and your friends will be thrilled that they got through the checkout line so quickly too!”

2. Don’t rely on one method of inviting. Use a blended approach such as mailing invitations, red stamp, Facebook, texting and Evite.

3. VIP guests – everyone has people that they want at their party. Have the hostess identify those special friends that will make their party more fun for them. Then work with her to ensure they can make it and invite them in a special way. Maybe it’s a personal phone call or a Snail Mail invitation with a mini or full size catalog.

4. When Hostess coaching, discover what a successful party looks like for her and set the expectation with your Hostess on the invite/attend ratio. (avg. 25- 30 % invited, attend) Go through the list of ladies she is inviting and ask personal questions about the guests and build her excitement about getting to see and visit them her during the party.
