How to Suceed as a Home Party Sales Consultant
You went to a home show not expecting to buy much, but then you fell in love with the
products, signed some papers, and WHAM you are now the proud owner of a home business.
When you wake up the morning after the party, you may feel like you are waking up with a
hang over as you wonder, "what have I done?!?" Especially when you try to muster up the
enthusiasm to explain the new business venture that you've signed up for to your not so
enthusiastic and down right unimpressed husband.
If your husband's cynicism has you second guessing your decision, rest assured you have
made a good choice. You are in the right place at the right time. With the fast paced
stressful lifestyles of today, many people turn to the internet for after hours shopping
from home. Another side effect of today's hectic lifestyle is that it leaves women
disconnected and longing for girlfriend time.
So a home party show fills two modern needs:
shopping and girlfriend time. It is a concept that was destined to succeed. Maybe that is
why the direct party home sales industry is growing so rapidly. According to the IRS tax
records from 2005, an estimated 13.3 million people nationwide and over 47.3 million
people worldwide that have decided to enter the home party direct sales industry.
It seems like a new direct sale business opens every day. It used to be that Tupperware
was in a league of its own and the Tupperware parties were pretty much the only home party
company on the scene. But those days of dominance are gone. Tupperware began breaking off
into many different subsidiaries set up to target diverse markets. Other companies ran to
get in the game.
Now there are companies that specialize in everything from spa, make-up, home specialty
products, children's books, scrapbooking, stamping and so much more. If you can dream it,
there is probably already a direct sale company that already sells it. All of this makes
it easier than ever to find a company (or several companies) that sell products you love.
Becoming a consultant for the company gives you a great opportunity to get the products at
great discounts. Plus when your friends and family love it too, you have a great
opportunity for part time income.
So even if the fast talking home party consultant that signed you up started to make
you feel like a used car buyer with her smooth talking well rehearsed speech about how
rosy things will be for you and how much money you will make with her company, don't feel
like you were duped.
The truth is, if you are careful and do your research so you can avoid falling into
common pitfalls, you can get a lot for a very low cash investment. This article will
