Yes! You Can Be Successful with Home Party Plan Companies

While researching a title for this post, no surprise that I came across some not-so-positive articles on the direct sales/network marketing industry which inspired me to write this article to highlight important things you need to know so you'll choose the right business for you.

Why do most people struggle with party plan as a business? I believe most people struggle with the party plan method because it's not a good fit for them. But if you're willing to be proactive, network locally, expand your contacts, and not shy asking people to host parties for you- a home party plan company is a great fit for you.

Party plan companies aren't for people that don't want to be sociable. There's some level of sociability involved because you'll need to meet people, ask people to book parties, then you'll need to coach/work with your hostess, meet and greet guests that show up at the party. Your ability to network and mingle is key to being successful as a party plan consultant.

Party plan companies typically have higher personal sales requirements because it's designed to sell products. Truth is, home parties is the BEST way to sell products, sponsor new people, and meet new people. Not to mention, consultants can potentially earn a nice retail profit at a home party.

No matter how much you hear people boast about Facebook parties, when it comes to selling, not sponsoring, selling is still best done face-to-face in a group atmosphere. Sponsoring is much easier to do online as yours truly has successfully built a huge team from my blog alone.
But selling is so effective face to face!

At a home party, you have a captive audience prepared to buy and support whoever is hosting the party. I've never attended a party and not bought something because most people that go have a mind-set to buy. That's why home parties are typically successful but only IF you're able to get parties booked.

The problem with home party plan business is that most have a hard time keeping parties booked consistently and over longer periods. Getting parties booked at the beginning of your new business isn't hard but what about a few months down the road? It's something people don't think too much about when they initially join a company. I believe anyone can be successful with a home party plan company IF you're willing to do the things that are required to motivate yourself to grow your business.

Best,

Janette

I like the idea of planning parties but it is not exactly a relaxing profession.
