Pampered Chef Party, Games, and Winners on My Facebook



I have hosted many physical Pampered Chef Parties but this is my first online.  I love the products and it has been years so I thought why not try it?  But I have to admit doing it online is much more challenging than if I just grabbed a group of friends from work and the neighborhood. 

When I decided on the date I had not taken in consideration that Ashley would still be waiting for placement and work would get crazy busy.  But with all that being said I thought I would give it a good ol college try.

June has been hosting games everyday!  Which I almost can guarantee that due to the low participation your odds right now are 50 - 100%  you'll win :)  Who wouldn't want Free Pampered Chef? I know I would! 

So stop on by and give me a shout or better yet join the party!

Pinterest Party; You Pin Us We Pin You!

Let's Party! that is Pinterest Party!
Pinterest Party

Pinterest can generate a lot of traffic to your site fast, it has become a key in self promotion and showing off your products.  By having others repin and "like" your pins it moves yours towards that top bracket (where we all want to be!)

For this to be successful there will be some rules and instructions. Please note we are using InLinkz for our pins to promote, click, like and repin, makes it sooo much easier :)
Pinterest Party Rules
#ButterflysPin
There have been many questions about where to place the hashtag "#ButterflysPin so I am including a clip to hopefully help show where to place it.

Etsy & Small Business Search-party for Sales Linkup

Etsy and small businesses searching for sales using the Small Business Search-Party Linkup.
It is becoming increasingly challenging to not only get sales from sites like Etsy but to even get promoted.  A while back parties that would "like" your item if you "liked" theirs worked well. It increased your items visibility in general and increased the popularity of your item in the eye of Etsy thus increasing your rank.  But that again has changed and is no longer an effective use of time.

What Etsy and other similar sites are tracking now are how frequently an item or shop is searched for then "liked."

This sales search party will be patterned after our Twitter Tree format.  In order for the linkup to be effective participants must follow the instructions in detail.  There are only a few rules:
  1. All Participants must Search and Like (or equivalent depending on the site) all other participants' items & shop
  2. Limited to 1 shop link and 3 item links
  3. Post Short Links for your items only (if you are not sure what this means use my links as an example)
  4. While I would love to have an actual linkup to post pictures I am not going to.  I am afraid that if I should people will click on those instead of searching.
  5. Once the page comes up you must stay on it for a minimum of 20 - 30 seconds. (if it is less it will not count)
  6. The Search Party ends at Midnight tonight and all items/shops must be searched and "liked" before noon tomorrow.
