Facebook Party 101

You’ve probably already realized that Usborne Books & More loves everything Facebook. We party on Facebook. We have groups on Facebook. We meet customers on Facebook. We make friends on Facebook. Whether your a Facebook junkie or new to the Facebook scene, you’re going to learn MORE about Facebook in the next few weeks as you launch our business.

Facebook and I have a love-hate relationship. It’s a total time-suck which drives me nuts. I’ve actually turned off the newsfeed when I’m on my desktop working so I’m not easily distracted. However, I love Facebook because I’m able to connect with friends, family, customers, and hostesses ALL over the country. I love Facebook because it’s a fantastic platform (that everyone already uses) for me to get books in the hands of kids everywhere, and it doesn’t even require their parents and grandparents to leave the house to shop for them. It’s a fantastic tool to run your business.

Ready to learn how to party UBAM style?? The next couple of trainings will walk you through what a Facebook party is and how to do one. This is the largest section but don’t let it’s size overwhelm you. We included everything you need to know to be successful. If you get lost or confused as you’re going through the trainings, please reach out to your team leader.

  1. You Choose, I love how it inspires kids to be creative and it teaches kids to picture read and create their own story, which are great steps towards reading!

  6. I’m looking forward to selling to boy moms, there doesn’t seem to be a lot of books targeted to boys on the market. UBAM seems to have a lot!

    1. I agree. I have two little boys and there isn’t as much in any market for boys as there is for girls. My 5 year old loves books and cant wait to read them on his own.

  17. Tough question. I think there are a few that I’d love to get to know more about as well as share. My little guy LOVES his That’s Not My Dragon book, and I think the whole series looks great for little ones. I also think the Illustrated books and Look Inside books look really fun!
