How do you invite well for the best attendance?
Here are some Frequently Asked Questions.
Only invite personally (one text, one FB message, etc., to each person) a few at a time and keep up with it, so you invite different people to the next one.
Texting the Invitation
This REALLY works: a DIRECT MESSAGE – pm or text or call. “I’ve been thinking of you. Are you still looking for a way to ___” (fill in the blank if you know their situation, something they are wanting), or you can say “Are you by any chance interested in a way to eat better? get healthier? feel better? I’m attending a FB event with some folks I personally know. They will educate us. Would you like to attend? I can send you an invite. It’s tomorrow night at 8. I think it’s going to be empowering! Let me know if you want to check it out!”
Finding Friends and Customers to Host a Party for You
Do a text blitz: “Hey there, I am looking for people who would be willing to host a Facebook party (no house cleaning involved) for me to jumpstart my business and help people get healthier! Would you be open to doing that for me? It’s super simple. I do all the work, all you have to do is invite! Plus, there will be a great host reward for you as well, like yummy shakes maybe! ;)”
Then BE SURE AND SEND A REMINDER THE DAY OF!!!!
“Just a reminder about the live FB event tonight. I know it’s going to motivate and educate us. Let’s get empowered together! See you on the event FB page at _______(put the time i.e. 8 PM CST/ 9PM EST)!”
Invite friends personally, one-at-a-time (no group messaging – that’s spamming.)
Be interactive (conversational, not lecture) and genuine (caring, concerned) and make sure what you’re saying doesn’t sound recited.
Optionally try to engage them in a personal conversation; this helps open them up to saying “yes”. Make it seem fun, inviting and special, just for them.
Do NOT use the exact examples above – write your own, so your friends know it’s really YOU!
