Direct sales via displaying products at home parties is a hot market for those looking to start their own business or to supplement their current income. There are multitudes of direct sales companies that an interested individual can choose from, spanning the gamut from makeup to cookware to power tools. While the product displayed for sale at home parties varies, the steps to successful in-home sales are quite similar.
Buy The Lowest Priced Starter Kit
To get started in the business of in-home sales, a starter kit must be purchased from the direct sales company so the product can be displayed during a home party. Generally, there will be two or three starter kits offered in ascending prices ranges. Buy the lowest priced starter kit that contains the fewest items and product samples. Odds are that items from the direct sales company will be purchased for personal use and can be displayed during a home party which will save money on start-up costs. Free gift products from the direct sales company will be earned and can be used as part of the home party display. Plus there will be product catalogs to be shown and given out during the home party that will display all items available for sale, so there’s no real need to purchase the most expensive starter kit.
Get The Party Started At Home
Kick off the new business venture by hosting the first sales party at home. Invite family and friends and have some food and fun while hawking the wares. An experienced sales person usually assists with the first home party so a new business person won’t be flying solo. Near the end of the home party ask friends and family to host a future home party so they can earn free gifts. Party hosting gifts are supplied by the direct sales company, gifts for games played during the home party are supplied by the sales person.
Recruit as many future home party hosts as possible at every party. Commissions are earned for every home party booked, with a typical commission being around 25% of sales total plus cash and product rewards for meeting sales quotas.
Build A Home Party Sales Team
One of the best ways to be successful financially in the home party industry is to build a sales team. Recruit people to be in your down line (sell under you) and sell the product by hosting their own home parties. Commissions range from 2%-5% of everything members of your sales team sells. As the sales team under you grows, the higher on the company ladder you get and each ladder rung climbed brings higher commissions and larger prizes.
The home party business is a fun way to earn money while being your own boss and these steps to successful direct in-home sales will help get the party started.
