|If you thought home party business opportunities was a thing of the past, youíre wrong. They are alive and making more money than many people can imagine. It isnít just Tupperware anymore either.|
Home Parties businesses are a perfect opportunity for anyone, stay at home parents can work evenings and weekends, as can husband and wife teams. The options about how and what to sell are endless.
Before you jump into just any home party based business, look at some of your options. Home party sales are available for just about anything you want to sell or purchase. There are home decorating, candle, baby items, baskets, lingerie home party business opportunities, and of course Tupperware, plus many, many more. There is almost no category untouched by home party sales.
When you have chosen several home party biz companies you are interested in and want to research further, you have to decide what is important to you. Do you want to work full- or part-time? How much do you want to spend to start?
These are just two questions, but they are very important. You want to choose a home party business that will work with the amount of time you have to commit to it. If you chose a business that requires a lot of time that you donít have, it will not succeed. That is why, you need to decide the amount of time you can commit to the home party business.
The other question, how much do you want to spend to start, is also important. If you have only a little extra money, then you may not want to put out $500 or $1000 just to get a kit and paperwork. However, home party business opportunities have different options with some with zero output of money.
Once you have narrowed your list, or expanded it, by answering these to questions, it is time to focus on other considerations. The commission structure usually ranges from 5% up to 50% depending on the company. Make sure you are comfortable with it.
Now take a look at the products of the home based party business. If the products are unfamiliar to you, it will be harder to sell. Pick the products you currently use and purchase. This will make selling the products easier and more fun.
Next check to see if the company has residual income. This is income you will make by helping others start a home party sales career. Some parent companies do not offer residual income, while others have residual income of up to 10%. Find one you can live with.
By now, your list should be shorter. Look at the mission statement, philosophy, and expectations of each company. Make sure these coincide with your objectives and beliefs.
All you have to do now is find a sponsor, and preferably one in your area. Your sponsor should be available to help you and guide you while you are starting your home based party business. This is not very easy when hundreds or thousands of miles separate you and your sponsor.
Go to the main web site for the company and look for people in your area that are available to sponsor your home based party business. Talk with the person before signing up. If you donít click or are going in different directions, go to a different person. This person will be your trainer and guide. It is important you are both on the same wavelength.
Once you have signed up it is time to start marketing and advertising your home party sales. Start with family and friends first, by asking them to host parties to help you get started. This will introduce you to many other people and potential hosts and hostess.
Also, get with other home based party business representatives and have a bingo night, or something similar. Each person has the opportunity to win merchandise and everyone can order. It is like having a huge party. If no one will do it with you, try it yourself. It could be worthwhile.
No mater which category of home party sales you choose, stay atop the home based party business trends. Attend meetings and seminars and always read the email and newsletters from your sponsor and parent company. These will keep you updated, and give you tips to help your home based party business to succeed.
Remember this is a job and takes work. But the end results can bring you the life youíve always wanted.
