I was the consultant and wanted to try a new, fun direct sales party game idea I like to call “Spoil The Hostess With Love.” You are not going to believe how well this game went, it increased sales and left the hostess feeling very special and loved!! And do not forget, there were some hilarious moments!! Read on to see what happened and how you can implement this game with your guests.
I plan on coming early to get acquainted with the hostess and chit chat about the guests who are coming. I like to get set up and be ready to great each guest personally. Once guest begin arriving, the real fun begins!! I conspiratorially ask each guest to help me on a secret mission. Ahead of time, I have prepared a list of items that can describe a person or that can be a person’s life passion.
The Descriptive Words
For this game to be super successful, you are going to need to get creative and incorporate your product into all Direct Sales party games. Some suggestions:
- Perfectly Posh has awesomely crazy product names,
- Cooking consultants have many utensils and spices,
- LuLaRoe has unique styles,
- Origami Owl has charms,
- Jamberry Nails has incredible wrap names,
- Beauty consultants have different names of shades, etc.
- The possibilities are endless!!
Once I have the guest’s undivided attention, I take them over to my table and quietly explain that I would like for them to choose one to two things (or words, or products) that make them think of the hostess. They can write it down for me, set the product aside or hang onto it depending upon your product line.
After thanking the hostess for having me and thanking the guests for coming, I say to the hostess, “Your guests and I have been up to a little mischief. Each guest when they came in shared some special things with me about you. They used (insert brand products) to represent something that made them think of you.” After a short sentimental or time of laughter, I proceed, “Now we are going to go around the room and each tell what they chose and why. I will begin…” This game is really just an ice-breaker that allows everyone to relax and get to know each other without feeling so much like they are on the spot. Depending on the group, this interaction takes people through a range of emotion leaving the hostess feeling loved. It also serves to inadvertently introduce the guests to the products, SCORE!
A Hilarious Story
I was doing an in home party for a sweet lady, Betty, who was in her late seventies. She invited her 4 sisters to her party and they were all around the same age. The sisters were all sweet and funny and were very close to each other. They had so much fun picking out their product items and being secretive about it. I held onto their items and passed the dish around holding the items and each and every one of the sisters forgot which item they had chosen!!! Now that is HILARIOUS!!! We were all laughing so hard. We figured out who had picked what and why and sweet memories were made!!
