3. Give good REASONS to attend Simply saying "online party - join us" isn't enough. Not even saying "games and prizes" is enough anymore. Get creative and have a good reason for having your party. Such as announcing a new product not released yet, giving away free items (be specific in your email!), or featuring a specific type of product on your website. Informational chats are good as well, such as one that explains what a certain non-familiar product is.
4. Make a SCHEDULE If you have monthly parties introducing or featuring specific products, attendance is going to be better than if you just have them at random. Weekly is best for repeat guests, but you also do not want to burn your guests out offering them same products. Monthly would work best, since it's not as often but still creates that habit. Make sure you have it on same day every month (such as 1st, 10th, 15th...something easy to remember).
Don't forget to get creative with your parties! With so many offering online parties today, you really need to make yourself stand out. Granted if you do follow first two steps, you WILL have a much better response since instead of just other wahms you will have a targeted group that may not be familiar with online parties. Even still, there is always room for improvement. ;)
Good luck with your next online party!
