Choosing a Home Party Plan

Guest Author - Deborah Crawford

If you are looking for a home party plan, there are several things to consider when making your choice. While an ideal small business for some, it is possible to waste your time and money pursuing something that is wrong for you. Recruiting efforts are strong with these companies, as most pay a bonus or commissions for reps who recruit new dealers, and because if someone is happy doing something, they are good evangelists for it.

Before you sign up for anything, consider what would really work best for you. There are many, many home party or direct sales companies these days. Due diligence on your part is needed to ensure that you do not make a mistake and choose a company that does not match your interests, or one that does not live up to its promises.

When looking for a company, first look for one whose products you believe in. It is much easier to sell something that you use and trust yourself. Your enthusiasm makes a big difference. It makes it easier for you to actually put forth the effort and it helps motivate customers to give your products a try. Today, the wide variety of offerings in this arena mean that you can build a business around many types of products. Some of the products sold via the home party method include:

Toys and children's products
Clothing
Gardening
Home decor
Kitchen accessories
Gourmet food
Nutritional supplements
Candles
Aromatherapy products
Baskets
Cosmetics
Spa products and services
Pet food and products
Jewelry

And that's just a partial list. If you like to cook and share recipes, you can sell cookware, dishes, utensils, and a wide variety of food products. If you like makeup, there are several companies you can represent. If you are a "health nut", there are many nutritional products on the market, including supplements and special food and beverage products. You'll find similar matches for your interests in children, pets, plants, and more. The closer you can align your interests with your products, the easier it will be for you to build a successful business.

Check out the company's products for yourself by going to a party. Examine the quality and workmanship. Is this something you can sell? Talk to other reps about the company, too. Are they happy with the product and the company?
