One of your FIRST steps into planning a Launch Party is to make your “List of 100”. Use the “FRANKS & BEANS” method to think about who you can invite to your launch party, as well as invite into the business with you!
F.R.A.N.K.S. & B.E.A.N.S.
Use this list maker to write down all of your “warm” market contacts (your FRANKS) and also your “cold” market contacts (your BEANS)
Here’s how to find your FRANKS:
FRIENDS: Your BFF’s, FB friends, close friends you haven’t talked with in awhile
RELATIVES: Mom, sisters, aunts, cousins, nieces, etc.
ACQUAINTANCES: Peeps you are building relationships with, see occasionally, have a favorable report with, co-workers
NEIGHBORS: peeps who specifically live near you,
KID’S CONNECTIONS: Teachers, coaches, kid’s friend’s Mom & sisters, babysitter, etc.
SPOUSE’S CONNECTIONS: Spouse’s co-workers, Spouse’s co-worker’s wives, spouse’s family
Then! think about what you DO in the day and the people you come into contact with, these are your BEANS:
BUSINESSES: The places of business you frequent like the bank, cleaners, restaurants, coffee shops, library, drive-thru windows, the gym, the hair salon, the day spa, etc.
ENTERTAINMENT: Places you go for entertainment like the movies, amusement parks, recreation centers, swimming pools, the park
ASK FOR REFERRALS: be sure to ask everyone if they know of someone that might love fashion, or cute nails, or hosting parties, or looking for a side income, etc.
NEW ACTIVITIES: NEW activities that you and/or your family can join like sports teams, the gym, the salon, dance class, gymnastics, PTA, fundraising organizations, local buy/sell/trade groups, MOPS, mom groups, animal groups, chamber of Commerce, Rotary Club, Networking groups, etc.
SHOPPING: Places you go to shop like the mall, your favorite fashion store, other direct sales parties, shopping boutiques and events, etc.
