You’ve asked, and she’s answering!
WHY DOES MISS PARTY GIVE AWAY HER CREATIVE IDEAS FOR FREE? A BUSINESS NEVER GIVES AWAY ANYTHING FOR FREE, WHAT’S THE CATCH?
Chris understands how her friendly competitors and some followers might be unclear of the reasoning for building such an in-depth party planning blog with all of it’s content free for Party Smarty Hostesses to use at will. The idea of free content is counterintuitive to the way a traditional business thinks, but MissPartySmarty.com isn’t built on a traditional model.
Once ‘Miss Party’ has posted a theme; expanded it, worked out decor ideas, recipes, menus and tutorials for it – she’s complete with those ideas and ready to move on to build new creative. Chris thinks it’s a good thing to let those thoughts and ideas go out into the world through her fictional character, ‘Miss Party’, to share and help other hostesses. She firmly believes that if she gives freely to her Miss Party community, with no hidden agenda, she will get more than she needs in return.
IF IT’S ALL FREE FOR THE TAKING, HOW WILL MISSPARTY.NET BE SUCCESSFUL AND PROFITABLE?
Chris believes that if she builds an attractive, high-quality, ‘freemium’ blog, over time, the Miss Party community will trust and support her through purchasing Miss Party’s premium product offerings (which she’s working on) and use her Event Styling services. Once loyal followers get hooked on Miss Party’s fun, down-to-earth approach to party planning, she trusts they will be willing and excited to spread the word through links and referrals because this is something their friends NEED to know about, too! This upside-down, ‘funnel’ approach to marketing her business takes some time to develop, but she feels it’s worth waiting for it to come around.
Right now, she’s working on the trust part, she wants followers to develop trust in Miss Party that she will add only high-quality, relevant, party planning posts and not glob irritating and unnecessary advertising willy nilly all over the home page. Eventually, she plans to add relevant advertising links that she trusts and supports to a page that guests can click over to if they choose.
WHY SHOULD I HIRE CHRIS TO STYLIZE MY PARTY WHEN I CAN JUST USE THE IDEAS ON MISSPARTY.NET?
Imitation is the greatest compliment a loyal follower can bestow! She hopes you have and do use lots of ideas from MissParty.net – and that you’ll come back often for more! The posts are general in nature and there are times when a client needs or wants personalized, customized attention. Through her services she offers a valuable opportunity for a Miss Party Hostess to have Chris’ unique point-of-view, creativity and style focused solely on her event and then utilize those customized ideas to put on a fabulous event!
