Pick Your PaperPie Book Party Style
Home Show – If you’re local to me (Raleigh, North Carolina), I would be happy to commute to your home, bring along a variety of great books, and have a show right from your home.
PaperPie Home shows do really well as nothing gets you as excited about these beautiful books then seeing them first hand.
I like to keep the a home PaperPie book party simple by letting each of the guests pick a book from my display, flip through it, and then share with the group a little bit about the book they picked and their thoughts. So easy – no long, boring spiels!
Catalog PaperPie Parties – A catalog party can be good for you if you don’t have the space to accommodate a home show, or simply don’t want to stress about a perfect home, but want to be more personal with your guests than an online event.
I’ll send a few catalogs your way in the mail and your job will be bring by a catalog and an order form to your guests.
You’ll set a time to return for the order form and catalog so you can pass it on to the next guest and follow-up with any questions or orders from each of the guests.
At the end, we’ll gather all the orders and then place your order for the rewards you’ve racked up!
Personal Shopping Link – You can also request a personalized shopping link. Party links can stay open for up to 6 months.
You can use your personal link for all your own orders and to share with your friends and family. Any orders placed under your link can help you earn free book rewards!
- Send an email to your friends/family
- Create a wishlist for birthdays and holidays and ask family to shop from your personal link to earn even more rewards
- Share your shopping link on social media with a picture and a “why you love PaperPie” message. Cute pictures of your kids help!
- Purchase your own books under your unique shopping link
- User your party link like an affiliate link on your blog or website
PaperPie Book Party Facebook Event – The easiest option if your group of friends is tech-savvy, is hosting a party all online through a Facebook event page. It’s not as personal and your guests won’t get to see the books first hand, but it’s a really stress free, fun, LIVE party.
What Will I Do as a Hostess?
How do PaperPie Parties Work?
1. Invite Guests! Your main role as the hostess is to introduce your family, friends, co-workers, neighbors, and anyone else you might like to join your PaperPie Book Parties!
You probably already love the books, so it’s easy to share that excitement and love for PaperPie books with your friends!
2. Follow-up – A really important part of the hostess role is following up with the guests you have invited.
That can be as simple as a reminder text the day before your home show letting your guests know about a special incentive for bringing a friend or arriving on time.
Or, a quick Facebook message to a friend that hasn’t replied to your message just to make sure she doesn’t miss out on her invite, if she was interested. We are all so busy that we need those reminders!
The follow-up step can be so important for a successful book party by ensuring you have guests that show up.
3. Interact During the PaperPie Party – Whether the party is in your home or all online, it’s important that you, as the host, participate!
You know your friends better than I do and set the whole mode for the event. Point out PaperPie books that would be perfect for their children or tag them on a party post to get them interacting.
Interaction is key to a successful PaperPie book party!
It’s really that easy, and I’ll be there to help you along the way with my own set of reminders to keep the party planning on track!
