Thinking about a Home Scrapbook Business?
Thinking about a Home Scrapbook Business? Imagine taking your love of
scrapbooking to a whole new level by sharing it with others. You will be invited
by friends, new and old, to come into their homes and show them how to create
beautiful scrapbook pages filled with their photos and memories.
Both beginner and experienced scrapbookers will love this time of fellowship
with their new scrapping friends. You won't be a sales person to them, but their
personal scrapbook instructor, helping them preserve their family history for
generations to come. If this sounds like what you've been looking for, keep reading!
Starting a home scrapbook business is a very important decision. Here are some
basic things to consider. A home based scrapbook business is obviously one you
run from your own home. In many cases, these types of businesses are done by
direct sales or party plan scrapbook consultants.
Being a scrapbook consultant comes with its own challenges. Consider the
following before jumping head first into a home scrapbook consultant business:
1. Do you like to teach others? If you are not good at showing others how to
scrapbook, this business will be a challenge.
2. Are you willing to give up weeknights with your family to build a business?
Most party plan scrapbook consultants host their shows on weeknights, with an
occasional weekend crop or event. If your family time is at a minimum, being
pulled away to do parties may strain your family more than you want.
3. Are you really passionate about scrapbooking? Your love for scrapbooking will
rub off on the customers you come in contact with. If you don't really love the
craft, it will make your job much more difficult.
How you answer these three questions will guide you as to whether you are a good
candidate for starting a home scrapbook business.
Now, if you're ready to move forward and start a home scrapbook, there are
several different companies to choose from. So how can you tell which one is
best for you?
1. Do you like their products? If you don't like the products the company offers
to sell, it will be difficult or impossible to make any money selling them as a business.
2. Do they offer a competitive compensation and consultant discount plan? Each
company's approach to compensation and discounts is going to be a little different,
so writing everything down to compare them as evenly as possible is a must!
Keep in mind that some companies let you earn commissions on others you recruit,
while others pay a one time bonus. Think about what you want out of the business.
If you like leading others and want to build a team, look for one that is multi-level.
