My Favorite Facebook Apps and Other Useful Tools

This list is always a work in progress, but I wanted to share with my readers some of my favorites.  Feel free to add your own in the comments.  I'm always up for learning new ways to simplify business.

APPS FOR CREATING CUSTOM PAGE TABS

22 Social is hands down my favorite! The possibilities are endless. It is not free, but you can try it free for 14 days. Their pro plan is $22 a month, or you can pay $222 per year and get 2 months free. I host almost all the apps on my Facebook page through 22 Social, especially my live webinars and virtual parties. For more info on how 22 Social can help you grow your business on Facebook, click here.

Woobox is a flexible Facebook app that has some free options for things like HTML Fangate, which is nice. The paid plans for contests and other features start as low as $1/month. But Woobox has great some free options that are great for beginners just getting started with Facebook apps. Check out THIS VIDEO on how to set up a catalog tab for free using Woobox.

ShortStack is another nifty app. It's very versatile. You can create your own widgets or use their pre-built templates and themes to create something that looks great. The nice thing about ShortStack is that it’s Continue reading

Business Ambassadors

Your Business Ambassadors are people who may not be able to book a party for you right now but they work with or are associated with lots of other women.  This could be a friend, a relative, a past hostess, your hair dresser, a shop owner, or someone who works at a school.  Set up a small display and a few catalogs with this Sign-up Sheet.  Put her name, your Ambassador, at the top and tell her you will give her a free gift for filling out the sheet with at least 10 contacts.  Let her know you will be back in 2 – 3 days to pick up the list and deliver her gift.  Follow up with everyone on the list right away!

Often times your Ambassadors will turn into Hostesses and Team Members, especially if they are Continue reading

We Are All Salespeople

One of the objections I hear most often when sharing my business opportunity is, "I'm not good at sales."  I'm sure you've heard it too.  But, everyone is good at sales and everyone does it.  Sales is really about providing service and filling a need by bringing value to another person.  I learned from Deb Bixler, of the Create a Cash Flow Radio Show, that the root of the word 'sales' comes from a Scandinavian word that means 'to serve'.  People sell all the time.  Have you ever heard of a great product at a great price and told your friends about it?  Have you ever received a coupon that was so good you had to share it with others, maybe through social media?  Have you ever seen a bad movie at the theater and warned your friends to save their money and wait for DVD?  Or maybe it was a great movie so you wanted to tell everyone about it?  That IS selling!  You are simply sharing something of value that you think someone else will find valuable too.  Often times at my home parties the hostess and a few guests are selling my products to the other guests just by talking about the benefits and what they love about it.  We all do this.  It's natural for us to want to share something good with people we care about.  You can do it for free or you can earn an income for the service you provide.
