Do you use home parties to increase your sales and build a team of great representatives that gives you residual income? Awesome! Would you like to be able to sell and recruit more? Take a look at these five tips that will grow your business even further.
Here are the five best ways to plan your home party and get the maximum possible sales:
1. Create two Wish Lists:
The first wish list you create is with your Hostess. This helps her to set goals for the party and she will work harder because she knows exactly what she wants and what she needs to do to get it.
The second wish list is the one that the guests fill out and you keep. This makes the selling process easier because you already have of list of things they like, plus you can call them back a couple of weeks after the party, see how they are liking the products they received and suggest further purchases based on their wish list, increasing your overall sales.
2. Give Your Hostess Instructions:
Not everybody is a natural hostess and not everybody is organized. Give clear, simple to understand instructions and contact her with reminders of what to do up to the time of the party. Don’t just through a bunch of stuff in her lap and expect her to have a great show. You can also do things like offer to mail out the invitations for her, or help her create a Facebook event. All these things will make the show more successful.
3. Serve Food Before The Party Begins:
The reason for this is simple. You don’t want everyone distracted with eating when they should be shopping. If you serve the food at the end (especially if it is in a different room), everyone will move to the food and away from your products and you will get less sales.
4. When Taking Orders Let Everyone Mill Around:
Don’t take orders privately. Do it at the table with everyone watching. As people ask questions you can answer them for everyone and you will be amazed at how other people will encourage the one placing the order to buy more.
Keep It Short and Simple. Don’t make your presentation long and boring. People have so much on the go and the last thing they want to do at a party is listen to a long-winded presentation. Keep it to 30-45 minutes and incorporate interactive things like games and demonstrations.
Doing these five things will help you to have great home parties with happy hostesses and customers. Try them today.

Along with being an entrepreneur and an author, I have also been taking some time to ghostwrite books for other people. It is an additional source of income and something that I really enjoy doing because I get to learn and write about some pretty interesting subjects.
One book I am doing focuses on the analogy of softball and how it relates to women and finances and it got me thinking about something I once heard the late Jim Rohn say. He said on one of his MLM training cd’s that a baseball player will make millions of dollars a year, striking out 7 times out of 10 and we can too!
You Can Fail A Lot And Make Money
So by failing a whole lot, you make a lot of money! When I first heard it something jumped in my spirit while my head said ‘no way that could work.’ It didn’t seem logical to my mind, but my soul knew better. It knew truth when it heard it.
So if you are wondering how it works, it is basically this. You talk to 10 people about your business in a week and only 3 say yes. In one year that is over 150 members added to your team.
Now lets say that you are still learning and you batting average is one out of ten, that is still 50+ people a year added to your team. Statistically in my company (which is probably a good industry standard) 1 in 20 people you recruit will become a good leader. So in one year you will have recruited 50+ people developed 3 leaders and they will have recruited a total of 15 people. So in one year you have 65 people on your team.
Year Two Is Even Better
Now in year two things get better because your skills get better. So you personally recruit a 100 people and add on 5 more leaders to your team. The leaders that you recruited in the first year are recruiting regularly and they recruit 150 plus develop their own leaders. So by the end of year two you have potentially 320 team members. Now of course we all know that not everyone stays, so lets say 160 good team members. Where would that put you in your company? Would you be making lots of money? You would in my company and I am on my way there. My goal is to be past there by next summer.
Now Is The Time
I have learned how to easily recruit people, so now the big thing for me is to get the consistency that builds momentum that will build my future. Consistency is the key. It is the small daily and weekly actions that produce big results over a period of time. That is how the really successful people in your company do it. Everyday they are generating leads in many different ways, then converting some of those leads into recruits and then training them how to do the same. That’s how you win the game.
Now is the best time of year to be get your business going. Most people slack off in the spring and summer, so that means a lot less competition for you to find new team members. The great thing is while you are looking for new team members you will also find customers as well. Then by the time that the Fall/Christmas rush comes you will already be ahead of the game and you will reap fantastic results from it.
So what are you waiting for? Get out there and fail, so that ultimately you will win.
To your success,
