Today we’re talking about my favorite theme party – the Auction Party. In fact, I have at one time or another made this theme my ‘standard’ party and guests who desired other themes would choose a different one from my book. It’s an easy “go to” theme that works with every audience.
Before we jump in and get started, make sure you take a moment to download your FREE printable Funny Money template below. It will be needed for your Auction Parties, and will make an excellent addition to your direct sales training notebook. But print off a BUNCH of it – not just one copy. Print at least 10. Trust me, you’ll need it.
You’ll be giving guests funny money for various things they do throughout your show.
- Showing up on time
- Bringing a friend
- Bringing an order other than their own
- Answering trivia questions or asking questions about your opportunity – this can be a great way to plant some recruiting seeds in your presentation or booking a show
At the end of the party is when you can play the auction game. Everyone who has won “funny money” can use it to bid on different gifts. You decide what the gifts are. You should have one gift for every 3-5 guests – enough for there to be a few winners. However, make sure you have smaller party favors for everyone else. You want everyone to leave the party happy.
If your company does not provide game gifts, you can find suitable gifts online, or at your local discount store. You could even collect some small gifts like kitchen towels, or bath salts, or little purse mirrors and put together a small gift bag. It shouldn’t cost you a whole lot of money – the point is cute and fun, not costly.
Great idea, right?
