Games are essential for direct sellers or party plan consultants.
Whether you’re running in-home parties or online events, you want to be playing games to make your parties more fun.
And more fun means more sales, bookings and new team members.
Games also help to relax that mechanism in your brain that protects you from marketing messages. Your guests are more likely to be open to what you have to say when they hear it as part of a game.
And of course games boost interaction and make everyone more relaxed. Including you (which is particularly helpful for new or shy consultants).
Drawing games are super easy and super fun to play. Not to mention, they are really adaptable to your theme or seasonal holidays. I have a Tropical Island version for you to download below, which can be used year-round.
How to play drawing games at your direct sales parties
Provide each guest with paper and a pen or pencil. If you’re running a Zoom party, you’ll have to ask the host to instruct the guests ahead of time to have pen and paper handy.
In a Facebook party you can go Live at a certain time and invite the guests to join you with their paper and pen at hand. Encourage everyone to post a picture of their drawing and their score in the comments under the Live. This is a great way to encourage interaction and connection in your Facebook party.
All you do to play is to read out the instructions section by section while your guest complete the drawing with their eyes closed. Once you’ve read all the instructions they can open their eyes and look at their creation, this is usually cause for hilarity and lots of laughs.
Then you read out scoring instructions to find out who won the game. I usually have a small prize for the winner and for the ‘winner in reverse’ (ie. the loser but ‘winner in reverse’ sounds nicer).
I hope you enjoy this game as much as I do, it’s a great one to add to your games stash.
