Have a Party! by Kay Green

So you need a way to connect with customers on a regular basis every week. There is a way! The party plan template that you see with Tupperware, Discovery Toys, Party Lite continues because it works. Why?

1. It put a group of customers in front of you at one time.
2. They are motivated to buy because every one there is buying.
3. It exposes you and your products to more people.
4. It continues because at each party you get bookings for more.
5. It gets you into new circles of people regularly.
6. It builds your repeat customer base.

So how do you get started?

1.  Have a "See My Business" party in your home.

Pick an evening or Saturday and invite 40 adults to come. YES 40, since only half will come. Show the products. Explain the features and benefits of each product. Answer questions. Give away a prize in a drawing. Take orders or sell out right. Then give a benefit to those who will have a party or show in their home for you. You will sell an average of $30 per person.

2.  Get 6 friends to each have a party in their home.

I offer them  free gift when 5 buying guests come plus the hostess gifts your company offers. You could give her a half price item for every friend who books and hold a party. Maybe allow her to buy the half price item at her friends show.

3. At each of those 6 parties ask every buying guest (when totaling their order) if they would like to have a home show and share the products with their friends and family too. If you don't ask, they can not say yes. Open your date book and tell them what dates you have available.

4. You could gather facts and handouts of child safety (or your products topic) information to share. The is much available on line about children's safety. Pick what appeals to you. You could play games or have door prize drawings.

5. At each party have your foam board display set up. Talk about each product and why they need it. Have products available to buy on the spot or take orders.

I have done this successfully with Discovery Toys and Tupperware. It does work! If you are serious about making profit each and every week this is the way to do it. It will get your name and product into the community. You can also set up fundraisers at schools and day care centers from these parties too.

Are you serious about your business? Will you give it a try and see that this does work! You will succeed and increase sales quickly this way.
