The direct sales home party is one of the most effective, yet underutilized ways of building a successful direct sales or network marketing business. A direct sales home party is an in-home party where a host or hostess invites over some of their friends and family to learn about your products and business opportunity.
Typically, a home party is fun, exciting, and memorable. The guests arrive at a certain time and the presenter shares the products with them. They presenter conducts product demonstrations, samples the products, and educates the customers about what the products can do. The presenter answers questions, takes orders, and books additional parties. In many cases, an independent consultant can earn $500 or more, just for a couple hours of work (individual results will vary).
If you aren’t using the direct sales home party plan to grow your direct sales business, you are behind the power curve. In fact, you are missing out. My favorite thing about home parties is that you can work smart. Rather than sharing your products with one person at a time, you can gain exposure for your business and meet with five to ten prospects at a time. Plus, I’ve found it’s much easier to sell in a group setting. In most cases, your guests will help sell each other on the products.
If you’ve ever attended a home party, you know what I am talking about. Most in home parties are one to three hours. They’re fun. You get to hang out with friends, socialize and have a glass of wine or cold beverage. It’s just a good way to spend an evening or Saturday afternoon.
If you are new to direct sales, or have never conducted an in-home party as a presenter, you should sit down with your sponsor or upline consultant and formulate a game plan. If you don’t feel comfortable presenting at in-home parties, you should ask your sponsor if you can attend one of their in-home parties with them, so you can learn the ropes. That would be very beneficial. My best advice to you is to just conduct an in-home party, even if you are uncomfortable. You’ll learn as you go.
In conclusion, the direct sales home party is one of my favorite ways to grow a direct sales business. Home parties allow you to work smart and share your products and business opportunity with several people at once. Additionally, they are lots of fun and are a great way to socialize. If you are new to direct sales, you should consider using in-home parties to grow your business. That way, you can earn more money and grow your business faster.
