Research on what’s out there. Use the internet to find companies that engage in home party business. Look for an established company and not one that has been in business for only a few months. Be wary of scams and fly by night operations.
Select a company that sells products you like. Selling becomes more difficult if you peddle a product that you don’t necessarily like or believe in. Customers can sense when a vendor has no confidence in the product. If this happens, you will not be able to sell as much as you possibly can. Go for products that you really like to make the job of selling easy to do.
Find out what the requirements are. Ask if there is an initial fee and how much. Scrutinize the startup kit for that business. This kit is what you will use during the home party. Make sure the kit is worth the initial fee. It should contain instructional or training materials, plenty of samples as well as other tools that you can use to make the party a success. Inquire how many parties you need to host every month. Some companies require just 1 or 2 while others need you to host more. Then ask yourself: “realistically, how many parties am I willing to do?”
Look for a company that has a buyback policy. Direct selling companies that are members of the Direct Selling Association are required to buy back any inventory that consultants wish to return within a year from the initial purchase date. The agreement is to buy back the items at “a minimum of 90 percent of the original cost.” This is a way of protecting consultants from losing all of their initial investment in case they decide on leaving the business.
Join a company that provides training. A good company will educate you on how to conduct the home party. They have training tools and training consultants who can help you turn your parties into successful selling opportunities.
Take your time. Never succumb to the pressure to join. Make sure to choose a company that you know you will be comfortable to work with.
Joining a home party business can be a fun way of earning extra income. You can keep a flexible schedule as compared to being in a 9 to 5 job. Hosting a home party is only the beginning. Your ability to earn will be dictated by what you do after the party. While at the party, network with everyone then make a call to each one after a few weeks. After service sale is very important if you want to be a success in this type of business venture.
