WHAT IS A MYSTERY HOST PARTY?

It’s a party that doesn’t have a dedicated host when it’s scheduled, which means that there’s not one specific person who’s gathering her friends together to reap the rewards of your host program. Basically, it’s a free for all and super exciting for the guests because any of them have the chance to win the rewards!

WHY SCHEDULE A MYSTERY HOST PARTY?

Since just because isn’t the best reason, let’s break down some good reasons to schedule a mystery host party.

  • New catalog or product launches – What a great way to feature all the new and exciting products your company just released!
  • Fun and easy holiday shopping for return customers – Give your loyal customers a simple way to shop while offering them the added bonus of possibly winning rewards. It’ll take them back to their first party they hosted with you – ahh, memories!
  • To foster community and engagement in your existing customer group – Get your group pumped up for a chance to win host rewards while you all get to know each other better!
  • Get people off the fence about hosting – Do you have a group of people who aren’t quite ready to host their own party? Have a lot of newbies who just joined your community? Awesome! Invite them all to participate in an upbeat environment with the added perks of winning rewards!
  • New consultant kick-off or launch party – Help your new team members gain confidence AND customers – it’s a win-win for everyone involved!
  • Customer or past host appreciation event – Nothing says love like free stuff, am I right? Thank your customers and hosts with a fun-filled party to show your appreciation of their loyalty to you.

WHERE TO SET UP A MYSTERY HOST PARTY?

Now that we know what they are and why to host them, let’s chat about where to set up mystery host parties. The beauty of this type of party is they can take place in any location and in any form. The choice is yours!

They can be:

  • In your home
  • Church hall
  • School
  • Neighborhood clubhouse
  • Online via Facebook, Messenger or Instagram
  • Office

The possibilities are endless here! Keep in mind that even though they can take place anywhere, the best thing you can do for your party is to theme it! As I mentioned above, people love a good party theme. We’ll chat about that in part 2 of our series – The Ultimate Guide to Mystery Host Parties! I’ve got some ideas for ya!
