So you’re wanting to Host A Party and know you need all the Hostess Information you can get about how to be a Hostess with the Agnes & Dora Barn Life Boutique. Well guess what?? It’s super easy and fun!! Most of your job is just chatting with your best girl friends and telling them why you love Agnes & Dora so much! So lets get started!
Where’s the Party at?
If your hosting an Online Party it will be hosted in my Facebook Group Agnes & Dora Barn Life Boutique. If your hosting an In-Person Party at the Barn Life Boutique it will be held in Sanford, NC at my fun, quaint Boutique, full of the latest Agnes & Dora Styles!
How Do I Invite My Friends to My Party?
Once you pick a date for your party I will create a Facebook Event for your party. This is an online invitation to your Agnes & Dora party. In order to add you as a hostess, we need to be ‘Friends’ on Facebook. So find me, Kim Jacobs, and shoot me a friend request (I will totally not be offended if you unfriend me after the party….but I’m secretly hoping that you’ll have a great time at your party and we’ll become super good friends). Once I get your Friend request, you’ll then see an ‘Event Invitation’ notification pop up in your Facebook notifications. Go ahead and accept and respond that you are GOING to your Party. Once you are ‘Going’ to your Party you can begin inviting your friends.
If you are Hosting an In-Person Party at the Barn Life Boutique I will also be creating a Facebook Event for your party. But…if you have some friends that may not be Facebook friendly, just let me know, and I’ll get paper invitations to you so that you can hand out to your friends.
Who Do I Invite?
Of course during your party we have two goals. 1… for you and your friends to enjoy some girl time together and to have a great time!! 2… I want to be able to spoil you, my Hostess, by giving you lots of FREE Clothes! I’ve found that the best way to do that is by NOT, I repeat NOT inviting every female that you know on your Facebook friends list! I know that sounds crazy, right? I’m going to ask you to trust me a little right here! I’m going to have you to invite only 25-35 of your closest friends. Those ladies that you really think will love Agnes & Dora clothing and who deserve to be spoiled and pampered just like you! Only invite those ladies the you would feel comfortable inviting into your home or out for a girls coffee date!
Create Excitement by Reaching out to Your Friends
You and I are going to be working as a team to make this the BEST Party yet!! One of the most important things that we can do is to reach out to your guests before the party.
- First, I strongly encourage you to reach out to each person on your invitation list personally (by text, messaging, phone call, or face-to-face) and let them know you’ll be inviting them to this AMAZING party and why its going to be so awesome! Don’t worry if you need help with what to say..I’m a pro at this!
- Next, I’m going to have you talk up your party on the event page! Many people have never heard of Agnes & Dora. I’ll give you ideas as we go along of how you can be sharing why you love Agnes & Dora! Your friends want to hear from YOU and see what Agnes & Dora looks like on YOU. If you do this, your friends will get as excited about your party as you an I are already.
- Then, once you have invited your friends and we’ve built the excitement for the party, it’s super important that you touch base with each of your friends again. I’ll share with you a quick and painless way ( I promise!) to reach out personally to each of your guests right before the party to ensure that they want to come hang out at your party.
It’s Party Time…Now What??
So Let’s Get This Party Started! By now all your friends will know who I am and that I am their Agnes & Dora Representative for your party..but they still don’t know me as well as the know you. You’re their friend and they trust your advice and opinions way more than they do mine. Let’s face it..I’ll kinda still be like the creepy clown in the corner at the party, and no one wants to be left with the creepy clown!
So, help your girls out! When you see an item you think one of your friends would love, tag them in the comments and tell them why it would look FANTASTIC on them. Friends don’t let friends miss out on cute clothes, and they will be happy to know that something reminded you of them! Make sure to watch for your friends questions while the party runs. I’ll be answering and responding through out the party…but many times you’ll know you girlfriends best!! When your guests see you interacting and having fun during the party they will be more likely to join in…and you’ll earn more FREE CLOTHES.
If your having an In-person party the advice is the same! Interact with your guests. Share your favorite styles and help them pick out pieces and outfits that you think they will LOVE. Don’t hesitate to share your inner-fashionista with your besties. Your friends will feel your excitement about Agnes & Dora and it will be contagious.
The After Party
The parties over and all your girls have closets full of adorable new clothes!! If your party was Online I will be sending out invoices to each of your purchasing guests.. This will typically happen the same evening of your party. Once invoices have been sent, I will tag everyone that shopped in an INVOICES SENT post on my VIP Page. Invoices must be paid BEFORE you can receive your Free Items/Hostess Credit. They are expected to be paid within 24 hours of being sent. So during that time, feel free to shop my Boutique site, www.barnlifeboutique.shop and create your wish list.
Once all your guests have paid, I’ll give you your total Hostess credit amount. I have over 1,400 items in my inventory and you have the potential to help your friends shop successfully and earn a lot of free clothes! I have seen my hostesses do amazing things and I know you can too! Just keep in mind that your Hostess Credit must be used at the time of your party and picked from current inventory. If you aren’t local, I will ship your Hostess Items that you earned to you for FREE.
So what are you waiting for? Now that you have all the Hostess Information you need to have a Rockin Party….schedule your Agnes & Dora party! Don’t wait!
