A virtual party is one of the many ways to share Pure Romance products, build relationships, and have fun. Using your phone, tablet or computer, you can show products, play games and connect with people over the internet.
There are two types of virtual parties:
Facebook Live – is a Facebook feature that allows you broadcast real-time video from your phone, tablet or computer. For virtual parties, go live in a Facebook event or group. This allows you to share stories, show products and encourage guests to interact through the comments.
Zoom – is video conferencing platform you can use from your phone, tablet or computer. The benefit of using Zoom is that you can see and hear your guests, and your guests can see and hear each other. This makes the virtual party more fun and interactive.
The steps before and after your virtual party are the same whether you are using Facebook Live or Zoom. The only difference is the platform in which you choose to share your product presentation.
Virtual parties are an additional source of income and can help you reach a broader network.
It is a great way to introduce what you do and what you have to offer to people who haven’t partied with you yet.
As you invite your connections, the key is to encourage them to invite their connections to the virtual party. This will help you branch out and be introduced to an entirely new circle of people.
It is a way to share with friends and family who live long distance.
It is a feasible option instead of canceling an in-home party.
Strive to keep party presentation around thirty minutes.
Condense your opening and get right to it. Welcome everyone, briefly introduce yourself, and go over a few of the disclaimers at the beginning (females only, must be at least 18 years old, etc.).
Don’t spend as much time on each product as you do at an in-home party.
Make sure you are sharing booking and sponsoring commercials during your live time. You can also post them as comments or graphics before and after the event.
Shorten your close. Simply thank them and let them know you will post the following in the event:
A wish list recapping everything you showed during the party.
A link to your flipbook if they’d like to browse additional products.
How to place an order. Prior to virtual party, determine how you prefer to collect orders. Select the option that works best for you:
Place orders and ask questions privately via Facebook Private Message. OR
Purchase directly from your website.
Optional: Place order within 24 hours to receive a discount.
During the party, focus on the live show. Field questions and orders afterwards.
Before you begin, make sure you are prepared, in a well-lit, quiet place, and everything you need is within reach.
If going live from your smartphone or tablet, make sure to turn it on its side (landscape position). This allows the viewer to see you full screen rather than having void, black space around the edges of your video.
Remember you’re a professionista. Even though this party isn’t taking place in-person you still want to appear professional from head to toe… not just from the waist up!
Encourage participation from the viewing guests. Ask them if they “like it, love it, or got to have it?” Have them post their favorite flavors and scents as you speak. Some will do this naturally, however, you’ll want to make sure you are asking and get everyone involved.
You never know when you’ll have a tickle in your throat or accidentally squeeze out too much lubricant. Have a bottle of water and tissue next to you, just in case.
Run your virtual party continuously from start to finish. Don’t stop or break between segments. People will get distracted or tune out and you won’t get everyone back.
Keep your energy level high. People aren’t directly in front of you like an in-person party, so you want to make sure you are still connecting.
Energy and enthusiasm don’t mean shouting or acting spastic. Remember to smile, change the volume and inflection of your voice (no one likes a monotone speaker) and let your personality shine through. Standing naturally improves your energy level, so you may want to stand… just like you would at an in-home party!
There are several examples of virtual parties located in the Digital Selling playlist on our Pure Romance Consultant Training YouTube site. To shadow a virtual party, click here.
virtual party planning
key to virtual party success is to connect with your hostess and engage their
guests BEFORE the party takes place. Whether you’re planning to hold your
virtual party via Facebook or Zoom, the steps are the same.
Typically, you’ll want to start party planning five to seven days before the live, virtual party. This creates excitement and builds attendance leading up to the main event.

this message to everyone that participated in the virtual party:
[INSERT NAME]! Thanks for joining [INSERT HOSTESS NAME] virtual Pure Romance
party – it looked like you had a great experience! I’ve extended shopping until
tomorrow night at [INSERT TIME]! What questions do you have about the products?

this message to everyone that RSVP’d Going or Maybe but did not tune in:
[INSERT NAME]! I know you couldn’t join [INSERT HOSTESS NAME] virtual Pure

shopping until [INSERT TIME]! so there is still time to shop! What questions do
you have about the products?
is the catalog – reach out to me if you have any questions!
Tune in to how the Consultant engages and interacts with their guests. Note how she blends together product and sexual wellness information for an overall party experience. Are her booking and sponsoring commercials different than yours? Does she demo products in way you hadn’t considered? Pay attention to how she sells the experience through demoing products together.
Everyone has their own party style and that is what makes each party experience unique! You don’t have to completely change your style, just incorporate a few new pieces to keep it fresh for you and your guests. If something is working for you and you’re getting the results you want, keep doing it! If you’re not getting the results you want, then identify a few new pieces to incorporate into your presentation.
These videos show how Consultants move through their party presentation, share product knowledge, incorporate humor, educate on sexual wellness, and engage with party guests. Grab pen and paper and get ready to take a notes to master or refresh your party presentation.
This is an example of how a virtual party can flow. We believe that in order to have a successful party, your presentation should be short, interactive and entertaining. Similar to an in-home party, you should ask for participation, let guests share product testimonials, laugh and have fun! The products featured on this sheet are suggestions, and Consultants are encouraged to use the products of their choosing.
Thank the Hostess and explain the benefits of a virtual party
If you place an order, friend request me on Facebook, and join [INSERT YOUR CLIENT GROUP] by [INSERT PARTY CLOSING DATE], your name will be entered into a drawing for a prize. Winner will be announced LIVE on [INSERT YOUR CLIENT GROUP]!
One of the benefits of entering a party on the COO is that it generates a unique Shopping Link to share with your hostess and their guests. This link is customized for each individual hostess. When your hostess and guests click the link, they will be taken to your personal website. All orders placed through this link will be connected to the hostess’ party and count toward the total party sales. The more people who shop through the party shopping link, the more rewards your hostess will receive! Plus, when customers place orders through the Shopping Link, the Corporate office does all of the work for you – they pack and ship it right to your customer’s door!
Watch this video to learn how to enter a party on the COO to
create a Party Shopping Link.
Learn what your party guests will experience when they click on a Party Shopping Link and place an order connected to a party.
