What are THRIVE parties all about? Why would anyone want to come? What should I teach them and what should I say? Let me help you!
How do I prepare my samples, food supplies and cooking demo?
I have 3 separate bags. One has the samples we will eat with samples cups along side. One has the extra cans just for display. The last tote has my equipment, measuring spoons, ingredients, recipe for the cooking demo all by itself. This makes my set up and take down really fast. About 15 on both ends. And it allows the hostess to help me too! That makes good conversation!
How do I organize my paper work and who gets what?
A little extra to add to this training. Here is a look at the actual party supplies and how I organize mine. I have a party tomorrow so as I was organizing my supplies I thought, I should really just take a picture and show you how I do it! I’m super simple and organized. It makes all the difference in me being able to function effectively and feel comfortable! I’m also very visual. So if you’re like me, then I hope this helps you too!
My consultant binder for parties is where I carry one of each of our colorful marketing pieces for my party. I keep those fliers plus the starter kit sheet, the application, packages document etc, all in here and the current monthly special goes on the front. I don’t usually have people needing too much of this info. But if someone ask, this binder is my safety net!
Then I make a folder with the hostess info written on the outside. (I usually use cheaper files folders. I only had this one handy today for the picture). This folder has the papers I’ll actually hand out. This keeps me from having to sort through my whole bag to find the right things. I also keep this folder right by my purse when I drive. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve pulled out of my drive way and thought- Oh!! I need an address and I have to reach in the back seat for the info. So I print off the Event Summary with all the info on it and put that in my folder too. Also, If the hostess has a double dip I also write that on the front of the folder and write that on the host benefits form for her as well. Then she keeps the host benefits form at the end of the party. It has her double dip on it plus all the party orders I was able to collect that night as a starting place for her host benefits. This is a very exciting part for the hostess!
These are the materials I use when I present. My homestore presentation in 20. The “Fresher than Fresh” a.k.a Banana Flier, the Chef Selection 200 recipe booklet (My favorite), the Taste of Thrive recipe/pamphlet and the Thrive Guide.
Here is a video version of why I do what I do.
Here is a brief training on materials and samples that I bring to a party. It’s a 10 minute video to help you get started.
Your first party can feel super daunting, but being prepared with supplies and the order in which you do thing will make a BIG difference in how your professionalism and your comfort level. If all else fails, just tell people “I’ll get back to you on that!” It’s better than making something up and way more professional too!
How to Explain the Q to your customers
The Q is the so important at a party for your customers and their convenience but also for you as a consultant. See how easy it can be to explain the Q and Q club.
A simple cooking demo like this is so simple, takes only a few minutes and always WOW’s the guests. I recommend trying this along with a fuller cooking demo at each party to get the ball rolling!
I always do this cooking demo. It demonstrates the tumble method. Shows how fast and easy and delicious THRIVE is; just the POINT we want to make right?
Monthly Specials and Thrive-It-Up
On the last Tuesday of each month is Thrive It Up featuring the monthly specials. This event is KEY in making your parties different and fun every month! See how they also grow your business!
My Goal for my customers
1) Give them the most HELP in using THRIVE from their first order
2) Teach them that THRIVE is convenient, easy to use, versatile, delicious, and time and money saving.
3) Encourages them to OPEN the can and use THRIVE immediately in a recipe.
4) Gives them an incredible deal plus Q-pon, Q-club points right away.
5) Encourage an easy month 4 order because they know how to use THRIVE now and know what they like
Chef Selection 200 is my #1 BEST Recommendation to meet these goals for my customers.
