How Passion Party
The Idea Trader is dedicated to spreading interesting ideas and current news to readers and interested parties. This blog contains opinions and insights for ideas and investment opportunities and is not intended as advice for investing.
A few weeks ago, I shared my tips for hosting a spring party with you. Since then, many of you have asked me how to organize your own passion party!
I’m so glad you asked because it has given me an opportunity to share some more wisdom with you. When you feel passionate about something, you will do anything to spread that passion to others.
You will teach it passionately. You will talk about it passionately. And you will do everything in your power to make sure those around you know about it.
This is what it takes to host your own passion party — just remember that the other person doesn’t need to enjoy this activity as much as you do, they only need to want it.
Examples of passion parties
Let’s look at some examples!
In March, Team Coco, an online streaming platform for music and media, hosted its first ever party event. The event was called #POPPLATION which had people sharing their favorite songs and artists using the hashtag.
The hosts picked 10 new songs that they listened to frequently and gathered all of these songs together into one playlist. People could then add this song list as an artist album or listen to all 10 songs in order.
This is how it works: you pick your top tracks, those lower down get grouped together and extended by us, the listening team, taking inspiration from you and adding our own. A community has formed because of this! It’s like having a channel on YouTube where you can hear more about your favorites.
#POPPLATION is free to enter and entrants are able to contribute whatever amount they want to win.
Tips for hosting a passion party
Now that you have picked your theme, organized some snacks and drinks, and gathered all of your supplies, it is time to think about how to hold your passion celebration.
The first tip we want to give you is to ask yourself what types of guests you want to invite. Are you trying to attract new people to your field? Do you just love celebrating with others and having fun? If so, then inviting everyone in your circle may not be the best way to go!
By asking only those who are very close to you or know you well to come to your event, you will save money, time, and energy – both pre-party and during the party!
If this sounds like something that cannot hurt, try it out for one week! We suggest holding your party at night so people can spend time together after the party as well.
Some ways to organize your party
Now that you have asked some people to come to your party, here are some tips to help you get ready!
Make sure you have enough food and drink for guests!
In addition to giving away the tickets, you will need to make sure there is enough food and beverages for your invited guests. This should include anything they might desire while attending your event!
Many people start to feel hungry or thirsty around two hours into their party, making them look outside your house or venue for more food and drinks.
Ways to pay for a passion party
Even though it is not easy to afford a romantic getaway or surprise birthday event, there are ways to do this! You can pick and choose which of these services you want to use to cover some of the costs.
The most common way to fund a passion party is through online fundraising. There are many ways to fundraise via the internet, such as asking your friends and family if they know anyone who might be willing to contribute to your cause, or creating an account at a website like AmazonAuction where people can offer their goods for sale.
By offering your good(s) on auction, you will reach out to more people, and you may even earn extra money. Many people have success selling things that are just sitting in their homes gathering dust!
You could also run a sale yourself by putting up signs telling people about the passing-out party you are having and the items being given away free with admission.
Decide what you want to focus on
Starting with an audience that is not actively listening will cost you your message. You need to know how to talk to them before they listen to you. If you are trying to get people to attend your event, spend time defining who your potential attendees are, and what they care about.
Targeted messages reach more people than general ones. Use targeted messages to emphasize things like fitness, cooking, or fashion so your audience can relate.
General party-themed events may sound interesting, but chances are there’s already one at the place someone in your target audience usually goes. Find a way to differentiate yourself from others by creating an exclusive experience – something only you offer.
Create the theme
When planning your party, you will want to make sure that you have the right theme! Having the wrong theme at the party can actually be worse than no theme at all – it could mean having to start over or re-organize things!
You do not need to spend a large amount of money on decorations to have a successful party — many people enjoy using their own clothes as decoration! If you are creative, search for inspiration from around you and use those resources to add some fun touches to fit the party’s theme.
Get your invitations
Now that you have a party idea, it’s time to get serious! You will need to invite everyone to the event, which is why it’s important to start organizing them as early as possible.
Invitations are one of the most basic things when planning a party, but some people just seem to forget about them. Luckily, there are lots of easy ways to do this and great sites that can help you do so beautifully and professionally.
You should definitely look into sending printed invitations. This way, they won’t be sent via email or text message and someone else can proof read it for you!
A good place to find free printable invites is at The League of Women Voters. They offer many different types of invitations and even has helpful information like how to make decorations and what kind of snacks would be appropriate.
Tell your friends
Let’s look at this from another angle. What if I told you that there was a way to earn thousands of dollars by throwing your very own passion party? And what if I further added that you don’t even have to do anything beyond invite people, talk about how to organize it, and collect tickets and donations?
That’s right – all you have to do is spread the word and reap the rewards!
So why not do so? It will cost you nothing but your time, and you can make an absolute fortune for yourself. All you need to do is convince other people to join you in celebrating your loved one’s birthday, get them involved, and then stand back and watch the smiles on their faces as they enjoy themselves.
You see, when someone you know experiences something they love being done by others, it gives them great joy. It makes them feel good and encourages them to repeat the action or take similar actions themselves. This adds happiness to their lives and helps them fulfill their dreams and goals.
It’s an incredible motivator and source of self-worth. And since we live in a society where most people are struggling to find the motivation to go after their dreams, using such a powerful tool to promote happiness and success is totally worth exploring.
Organize a transportation plan
If you are hosting your party at someone’s house, then they will probably provide you with access to an address or even the street where they are located. But if they do not, then it is time to get some help!
Most people have their own cars that they use for daily trips, so ask around about whether anyone has a car that you can borrow for the day. Some people may be willing to let you take over their vehicle for the afternoon!
If you don’t have a ride, most towns have buses that run frequent routes through town, so look into those before planning your trip. Buses usually cost less than taking taxis or Uber rides, and many offer discounts to local attractions as well!
If you’re very passionate about the products or services being promoted, then you should definitely consider buying them as part of promoting the passion.
