Why Party on Facebook?

Facebook has a whopping 2.1 billion users,

76% dominated by women, (with most  checking in multiple times per day?)

In-home parties are pretty awesome. You get to meet new people and sell product; it’s a mix of a girls’ night out and shopping.

Bring the two together…  a virtual Facebook party.

Imagine this…the ability to throw several parties a week, even in one night! Oh yes, it can be done.

 So what is a Facebook Party?

A Facebook party is  the online version of a home party, and many of the activities are the same as a home party.

The “Facebook Party” is created on Facebook as either an event or in a group a specific date and time.

The party host and guests hang out together online to read/watch a series of posts for a pre-determined amount of time (typically 30 minutes to an hour for a live party).

Posts can be a mix of status messages, photos and videos.

 

HOST THEME PARTIES

Create a one-of-a-kind theme party!

Theme Parties set you apart as different and fun, and honestly, who doesn’t love a good theme party?

Theme Parties have great engagement, great sales and great vibes overall, why wouldn’t you implement this strategy into your parties? At least give your Hostess an option, right?

 

Here is a year’s worth of theme party ideas for all seasons of the year which means that you could do a different theme every week! Once your Host chooses a theme, you can easily create your own party posts using the Design with Canva button inside your CinchShare account!

When and Where to Host an Online Party:

When is the best day/time to host an online party?
There’s really not a bad day to throw a party on Facebook, although many have told us they find better success with parties on weeknights verses weekends, and others swear by holding parties at the beginning of the week verses the end of the week.

Focus on the days and times when people are naturally on Facebook.

Evening parties around 8 or 9pm tend to be  one the most successful time slots. It can vary.

You will need to decide WHERE you are going to hold the online party, in an event or in a FB Group.

How to Set Up a Facebook Party:

At CinchShare, we are fans of setting up the entire party in advance for your Hostess, verses her setting it up herself, so that you are able to get things perfect for her party and all she has to worry about is getting her friends and family there. You are the Consultant which means that you are the expert and many times your Hostess would have no idea how to go about setting up a party. You have to be careful and make hosting an online party with you as easy as possible so others see how seamless and fun it is and book a party with you too!

To set up a party, you will need:
1) An awesome Cover Photo — this will go at the top (also known as a banner image) of the group/event. It needs to be something that gets people excited when they come to the party because it is the very first thing they see when they get there, regardless if they are logging in from their computer, tablet or cell phone. First impressions are crucial and your cover photo/banner is that first impression!
2) Party Details – Add all of the party details to the Group Description so the guests know the time, date, location, ordering link, etc. Anything a guest needs to know, put it there for easy access!
3) Once the group is completely set up, you simply add your Hostess as an admin so she can invite and approve members to her party.

If you were invited to attend a Facebook Party as a guest, what would get you excited to attend?

 Hostess Coaching has to be your #1 Priority!

Practice the following tips to ensure that you and your Host are connected and working together throughout the entire process to have the best results!

Host coaching can make or break your online parties. We believe in it so much that we created a free printable to help you track your communication with your Host and give you something to reference as you build your business online using Facebook Parties.

Facebook Party Script:

The CinchTeam has hosted over 1,000 Facebook parties and has never been put in Facebook Jail because we know exactly how to post to avoid being blocked and have a great party. Creating your own unique-to-you party script helps keep you out of FB Jail!

It is also important to change up your post types regularly in a party, you want to avoid doing all image posts, where every single post in the party has an uploaded image. Instead, change up the rhythm of the party by posting an image, then posting a website link next time, then posting a custom album, then posting a video, etc. Be sure to download our FREE Successful Facebook Party Planner so you can create your own original script and really stand out and shine in your Facebook Parties.

Why You Want to Use Pre-Posts:

Pre-posts are where you have the opportunity to build relationships, like the meet and greet time of the home party where you are getting to know everyone. Be active and engaged in the conversations, every comment made by a guest is acknowledged and replied to by you.

If you are doing live 30 minute or 1 Hour parties, you can even do what we call “countdown posts” (for example: Today is the Day, 2 Hours Until Party Time, 15 Minutes Until Party Time) to serve as great reminders to join you during the live portion of the party. With CinchShare you can pre-schedule your posts to the party and be there to engage with the guests verses scrambling to make the next post.

What type of pre-posts do you use?

Day of Party Posts for 30 minute and 1 Hour LIVE FB Parties:

Morning of the Party: The morning of your Facebook party, have your host remind the guests of the event with the date/time. She should text, call or private message each guest with the personal reminder. This simple reminder alone can make or break your Facebook party attendance. People get busy and they forget, her personal reminder is crucial.

Midday: Get guests excited to attend by posting a question in the event(include an image!) that will get them thinking about why they would benefit from purchasing one of your products.
Countdown Posts: Always do a couple countdown posts so they receive notifications and are reminded of the time to join you live!

As we said earlier, this is what we do as our Party Day pre-posts every time:
Today is the Day post
Contest post
2 hrs until party post
15 minutes until party post

Do you do anything special on the day of the FB Party?

 PARTY TIME!

Now you have reached the Party Time of your FB Party!
Welcome the guests with an image or video connecting with them! Be sure the 10-15 posts are alternating the content types (i.e., Photo, Link, Video, Status, Photo, etc.) and include custom albums to avoid posting too many individual photo posts, which could land you in FB jail! Remember to schedule your posts a minimum of 3-5 mins apart.

Here is an example for a 30 minute Facebook Party:
Post #1 – Guest roll call & how do you know the hostess
Post #2 – Product category post
Post #3 – Product category post
Post #4 – Video of live product demonstration (3-5min)
Post #5 – Shopping Time w/ Custom Album
Post #6 – Booking Talk
Post #7 – Thank you for coming

You can use CinchShare to schedule out all of those posts including any video links!

Which types of posts get the most interaction from your guests?

After-Party Posts:

Once the Facebook party is over, After Party posts offer closure and a way to share that extra valuable information for the next 24-48 hours. Just like an in home party, there are always guests who linger and want more details! With online parties, the guests will still receive notifications which will bring them back to the party in case they didn’t place an order or weren’t aware of your business opportunity. It’s a nice way to wrap things up!

Great After-Party post ideas:
Book a Party incentive
Business Opportunity information
Party link and ordering instructions
Thank you (to Hostess, Customers, guests who book parties, etc)
Last call for orders/Party Closing

 Post Up to 10 Photos at One Time with CinchShare

With CinchShare’s Multi-Photo feature, you can schedule up to 10 photos on a single post. This is a great way to share product line categories at one time. For example, if you sell health/beauty products, you can showcase skin care in one multi-photo post, and then hair care product in another multi-photo post later on in the party. It’s a fantastic way to do some suggestive selling!
