Virtual Shopping Parties on Facebook

Virtual Shopping Parties on Facebook

We’re so happy that you’re interested in having a Facebook party with us! Our moms love to shop online, and our virtual parties offer you an unparalleled chance to share your products, talk about your work and interact directly with your ideal customers. We love our moms, and we know you will too! So what on earth is a virtual shopping party? So glad you asked. These parties are hosted on Facebook, with a set number of invited women. When you decide to work with us, we will set a number of participants together, and then invite the women we believe will be most interested in what you, and your company, have to offer. The party starts with a picture of one of your products, and a description by us, and you, about what the product is, what makes it special and how your past customers have used it and enjoyed it. The party begins to take on the feel of all of us in a room together, looking at your products, and talking about how we would use them, why we would buy them – and as women often do, talking each other into buying them! It’s so much fun! Below are some FAQs. If you have further questions, please feel free to reach out to us directly. Our Virtual Party Planner, Deborah, can be reached at deborah{at}betterwaymoms{dot}com. We look forward to working with you! FAQs How do party participants buy my products? Better Way Moms will put your products for sale on our site and we’ll let you know about the orders so you can fulfill them. At the end of the party, we’ll send you a check! How do I know which customers came from the party? There are a few ways we can track this, so it’s not a problem. We can discuss this in detail as we begin to plan your party. I’m nervous, what if no one comes? Rest assured, we’ve never had this problem! Our moms love to shop. In fact, we usually end up having to turn people away so the party isn’t too large. Small parties actually end up creating a much more intimate atmosphere where you get more time with ideal customers who end up becoming great influencers for your products and brand as they get to spend so much time with you directly online. We like to keep...

John Cave Osborne

In a span of thirteen months, John Cave Osborne went from carefree bachelor to the father of four after marrying a single mom in August of 2006, then quickly conceiving triplets. Unlike most, Osborne didn’t gradually mature into domesticity. He was hastily grandfathered in out of necessity. In addition to husband, step-dad, and father, he is also the co-owner of a granite countertop shop, author of Tales from the Trips, and writer of the popular blog And Triplets Make Six. In his spare time he enjoys vacationing with his family on Hilton Head Island, backpacking the Appalachian Trail, and turning heads on the dance-floor with his sick-ass moves.

Ilona Siller

Ilona Siller started writing her top 10 lists while pregnant. She is a part of www.i-am-pregnant.com where all her lists reside. Her bio in her own words: “I started writing my top 10 lists when I was pregnant with my daughter. I am part of i-am-pregnant.com website and I published my lists there. They got a lot of responses from other moms and I was sad to realize that my feelings and notes to my daughter were just disappearing in the sea of message boards…so I started a blog. I am writing from my heart and as honest as I can. Some of the things I write, I wish someone told me when I was pregnant. I hope it gives new moms some kind of support, a feeling of being understood and an occasional smile. Thank you for reading. In addition, I work as an art buyer for an advertising company. I am from St.Petersburg, Russia (that’s where my dry sarcasm comes from), but live in New York with my husband Lane, 1 year old Amelie, a dog and a rat. (yes… a rat).” You can view her blog here: http://top10mama.blogspot.com/   Top 10 Things That Are Wrong With This PictureTop 10 Reasons Why You Turning One Ruled!Top 10 Ways Your Toddler Is Similar To A DrunkTop 10 Things I Want To Do Well So I Can Teach YouTop 10 Things I Understand About Parents Now That I’m OneTop 10 Qualities That Are Important To Me In LifeTop 10 Things I Have Been Thinking About While Writing My Imaginary WillTop 10 Things You Do Now That Melt My HeartTop 10 Things I DreadTop 10 Things I’ve Learned About Toddlerhood So FarTop 10 Things I Am Coming To Terms WithTop 10 Things My Parents Did RightTop 10 Reasons You Are Not 18 AnymoreTop 10 Things I Am Coming To Terms WithTop 10 Things I Learned About Being “Married With Children”Top 10 Things I Choose Not To Worry AboutTop 10 Random Thoughts About “SuperNanny”Top 10 Things I Learned About Baby/Toddler Sleep TrainingTop 10 Things I Dream AboutTop 10 Dirty Little Secrets Mothers Don’t MentionTop 10 Ways I Keep Myself Relatively Sane & HappyTop Ten Truths About Being PregnantTop 10 Things Never To Say To A New MomTop 10 Things I Hate Hearing Moms Say To Me At The PlaygroundTop 10 Differences A Year MakesTop 10 Things Non-Parents Should Never Say to...

Julie Falatko

Hi! I’m Julie! I live in Maine with my husband, Dave, and our three kids: Henry (born 2003), Eli (2006) and Zuzu (2008). I’m in library school and should graduate in December of 2009, after doing the one-class-at-a-time, taking-time-off-for-frequent-pregnancies plan for five years. I’ve had this website since 2002, though the blog format is new as of September 2008. Well, it was sort of bloggish before, but not with formal blog software, so there weren’t any comments or anything. Feel free to lose yourself for hours in the old site. My children are wonderful, hilarious, terrifying little creatures. It is still mind-boggling that we have one kid, let alone three. I am an only child and a little perplexed by having all these people in my house. I haven’t slept since June of 2003, approximately. I have too many crafty hobbies that I don’t get a chance to do anymore. I haven’t had any caffeinated beverage since December of 2002, and I’m much nicer for it, though I’m a bit of a zombie (see: the bit about not sleeping). I do drink decaf coffee because I like the ritual and taste, and I eat a lot of chocolate to make it through the day. I dream of a full day, or three, all alone. At the same time, I know I’d probably spend the whole time wandering in circles wondering what to do with myself. In 2007 I got fed up with all the clutter in our house, and I made a resolution to get rid of 365 things in 365 days. I did it, and it made a big difference with my ability to constantly keep things moving out of the house, though it’s amazing to me how much stuff we still have that we don’t use. You can read most of the journal I kept that year on this site too. Now, go read a book or something! Stop spending all your time at the computer!
