Earn money party planning network sales
Party plan or nework selling and hosting is a popular and effective way to earn extra money. There are many companies now who provide help and support with this form of sales.
There is a far greater variety of exciting products to sell direct to your friends these days - not just plastic food containers! Traditionally popular as a way for stay-at-home mums to make money, party plan selling is open to both men and women although the vast majority of party plan selling is still run by women and and aimed at women.
You can arrange a party around the latest fragrances, beauty products, sexy underwear and adult toys, TV chef's products, cards, stationery, kitchenware, clothing, jewellery, buying gold, children's books, toys, etc.
Network sales or party plan selling can be a great way to earn the home-based income you want with the flexible hours you need, especially if you have young children. You can work your Party plan sales business from home part-time or full-time, and earn extra money while making new friends. You need to enjoy meeting people and be socially confident, as you will need to demonstrate your product to others, and be prepared to answer any questions or enquiries. Networking will make you more successful, as with any sales related business. You also need to be well-organised with your invitations, orders and deliveries.
Running a Party plan business can be fun, financially rewarding, flexible, it can fit around childcare or other work commitments and on top of that gives you a great social life!
How much can you earn selling at home as a party-plan agent?
Earnings will vary depending on the kind of product you are selling and how much effort you are willing to put in. Some party plan agents get so involved with the product that they move up the ladder into management or distribution - earnings for this can be high ( but so can the workload!) equalling or exceeding what you could expect to make in a 'normal' 9-5 job. Most party plan agents are content to run party-plan parties at reasonable intervals earning anything from fifty up to a few hundred a month.
Party plan sales successTo make money with direct selling, ideally you need to know a lot of people who can come to your party. You can act as the host of the party, or find friends that want to hold a party in their home where you act as the demonstrator. The host, if not you, generally gets a free gift or payment from the demonstrator.
The important thing to remember with party-plans is that nobody likes to be subject to a hard sell experience, it's more the skill of your demonstration that sells your products.
The softer approach tends to work much better with the party plan type
of direct selling, where you discover what your customer likes and suits
them and suggest options.
Make sure they all contain your details and an order form. If you are selling a product, such as jewellery, try to wear it as often as you can - you are your best advertising campaign!
Which party plan product is best to sell?
You need to believe in, and personally like (preferably love!) the
product you are offering, as it will be obvious to your audience when
you give your demo. So make sure you choose the right product to sell,
that way you will be naturally enthusiastic about it, and not just
because it brings the best commmision rate. Try and choose a company
with a wide range of products, as this generally results in increased
sales - customers like plenty of choice. The refund/ money back guarantee
policy is also important for customer confidence and will help your
sales of the product.
