South Hill Designs, a fast growing “party-plan” jewelry company, now provides a complete system for managing home events along with online events, which it calls the Social Dashboard.
Distributors, known as "Artists", are the lifeblood of South Hill Designs, and event tools are critically important to their business. Socials are events where guests experience the company’s range of lockets, charms, screens, chains and droplets. Guests create their own jewelry to express their individual interests, stories and passions. Artists find hosts who hold Socials in their homes or online, and then help them invite guests.
The new Social Dashboard enables Artists to set up their Socials, send invitations, integrate to social media, manage orders and track progress using a single end-to-end platform.
Effective invitations are critical to the success of every Social. The new Social Dashboard enables Artists to enter a guest’s contact details and automatically send an attractively designed invitation. Not only that, the system includes complete social media integration, so invitations can be shared on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.
"Our Artists are thrilled by this new tool," says Regional Sales Director, Amy Faircloth. "It means they can concentrate on their real priority, which is interacting with hosts and guests, instead of spending time struggling with logistics."
"It’s an industry first to allow a host to earn rewards from traditional methods as well as cash and carry. These cash and carry orders are purchased and collected instantly out of an Artist’s inventory at a Social," says CEO Brian Palmer. "This innovation makes managing Socials extraordinarily easy and effective for our Artists."
The Social Dashboard lists all the Artist’s Socials on one page, identifying the host, event name, address and time. For each Social, the Artist can take a range of actions. These include sending out invitations, managing orders, closing the Social and calculating and collecting host rewards.
"An important feature of the Social Dashboard is that it supports virtual Socials," says COO Joe Ochoa. "This means we can sell products to customers who cannot attend an event as well as those who do, and the host gets the credit." In addition to traditional ordering at the Social itself, Artists can enter an order from an invited guest who purchases the jewelry out of their inventory.
