Facebook did something unexpected Amazing this week!
Susan and Erik at SMART PARTY received a "Like" FROM Facebook!
After the constant changes it implements on how we market our business ...
Just as we have "figured out" some process that is really working... Facebook changes the rules....
If you are reading this here, chances are that you saw a blurb about this on Facebook.
Facebook is by far the Social Media site that gets most Direct Sales people exposure for their business. More sites, Google +, Pinterest, and Twitter to name a few, are also very popular with Marketers. There is a learning curve no matter where or how you market. Most of us find out in a negative way!
We have a Love/Hate relationship with Facebook. Admitting that is hard for me. It draws me in and it's a great tool to keep in close contact with the people I care about. I have made some AWESOME friends on Facebook --And I have decided to end some friendships there as well. Can I say Facebook has changed my life? YES! In many ways I am sure you could say the same.
Have you ever been in Facebook jail? Luckily (knock on wood) I haven't been yet. I have many friends who have. If you are running a Direct Sales Business it is an EASY thing to have happen. AND it can leave the momentum in your business in a LURCH. This is the reason many marketers are broadening their Marketing plans to include other Social Media Sites.
But I witnessed something I have NEVER seen before this week! Facebook did something Amazing!
When Erik and Susan received a Message from Facebook in their email, as you can imagine, they were startled! Oh NO! It's happened! Shift gears quickly!
But it wasn't at all what they expected. There were getting a THANK YOU letter! Signed digitally by none other than Mark Zuckerberg.

Smart Party does.... and you are part of it!
The reason we, as business owners, start our journey in Direct Sales have a common thread usually. Maybe we need to stay at home with our kids but need a bit of money coming in. Maybe we really LOVE our Products. Maybe we need to pay off a few bills.
Usually we start thinking of the "things" we can accomplish in the Short Term with the start of our new Direct Sales Business --but THEN a few Long Term goals come into view.
Sound familiar? Well this is exactly how Smart Party was founded.
Susan found herself at home, watching her grandchildren and needing a little extra money on the side. She found Jewel Scents.
Who doesn't love Candles and Rings!! (I am addicted!)
She decided to try her hand at the Jewel Scents business model and then realized she needed to learn how to actually do Direct Sales. Most of us today turn to the Internet to learn quickly what has taken many people so long to learn. The World Wide Web is a wealth of knowledge at our fingertips.
What did Susan find? That it can be hard to have parties and guests all the time. What she found and realized was that there was not a platform where many Direct Sales people like herself could come together and share their parties and friends. Smart Party was imagined and conceived to help her friends and herself work together as well as growing their own Direct Sales Businesses individually.
Today Smart Party has 541 Vendors who are using the tools that Susan has set in place to help build their businesses.
There really is not a lot of support to be found and she feels that her platform for sharing customers goes so much further than a business. The Smart Party Vendors have become a Family!
In Susan's own words.... "
I love the fact that now Smart Party is working to help employ individuals that are working hard to make ends meet while giving them a way to make money through their own Direct Sales companies."
