This is a great little game to encourage your hostess to do a little bit more before you arrive for her party.
You want to create a tic tac toe board and each square is going to have a different activity for them to do. At the top, you list what they will get if they get a line on the board. You may also want to offer something extra for each line and if they complete all the items on the board. This would be on top of the normal hostess credit. Indicate on the form what they are going to receive.
Ideas to fill your tic-tac-toe board
- Have 3 outside orders
- Have someone who wants to book a party before I arrive
- Have someone who asks about the business
- Party starts on time
- Have 7 people attending
- Someone shares a testimonial at the party
- Party sales are over $X
- Receive $100 in outside orders
- Have 2 of Y product purchased
- Sending out an invite on Facebook/sending out an Evite
Essentially, you can add anything to this that you want your hostesses to do. If you find that they are always missing certain steps, then add it onto this checklist.
Once you are finished with the Party presentation, pass out lapboards and catalogs. In each pocket of the lapboard have an envelope labeled Deal or No Deal.
“In your catalog you have an envelope. In each envelope is an actual product from the catalog ranging from $7 to $15. In a few minutes the Host is going to walk around the room and she is going to say ‘Deal or No Deal.’ If you are interested in hosting a home Party you will say deal and then you win whatever is inside your envelope! If you are not interested you just say, ‘No Deal’ and you will give the envelope back to the Host.”
In the envelopes, you have cards with different items from your catalogue. Sue decides to take an envelope and host a party. Order the item for Sue when you place the party order for the original host so you can give it to Sue at her party. It is worth it if you are walking away with a booking…and that booking could lead to another booking, a possible recruit, etc!
This game is great because it takes the pressure off of you! The Host is doing the work for you! Anyone that is possibly on the fence about hosting, but knows that she will get an extra item will be more likely to book!
• You will receive the product at the time of your party.
• Party must be scheduled from one of the available dates and hold on that date.
