Direct Sales - Planning Parties Around Your Family

 Finding time to work your direct sales business can be difficult. There are plenty of things to do each day; from taking kids to school, running errands, household chores, shuttling kids to after school activities and making dinner, you have your hands full. Here are some tips to maximize the time you have to work and still have time to do everything else you need to do. 

If you do not have a planner, get one. Start scheduling the times that you cannot work, and after all of your over obligations have been met, look at your schedule and define the times that you can work. To maximize your time to the fullest, try to schedule at least two nights per week to hold home parties. Tuesdays and Thursdays are usually good nights; they are in the middle of the week. 

Now that you know the days of the week that you can hold parties, try to schedule two parties per night instead of one. Many people set their party time at around 7:30 in the evening. Instead, try scheduling parties at 6:30 and 8:00 pm.  

At the earlier party, get things rolling right away. Come in, do your demonstrations and start the ordering process. The host can serve the food and visit with guests once you are finished. If people want to think about their choices before ordering, make sure your host understands how to help them and make an appointment to pick up the order forms in a day or so. 

As for the later party, have the host tell everyone to be there about a half hour before you show up. Have her serve the food and visit with guests while you are on your way. If possible, you may want to drop off some catalogs and sample items the day before, allowing your guests a chance to look over them before you get there. Once you get there, walk in with a smile and get to work right away.  

By working this way, you should have two parties completed by a little after nine o’clock in the evening. You will double your profits over what you could make if you booked a single party and stayed there from 7 – 9pm. By letting all of these party guests know that you book two parties a night because you are in such high demand will make them want to book a party, too.  

Another option is to book several parties at once. Ask your hosts ahead of time to make sure it is okay with them. An average home party has around 7 guests; call local restaurants and hotels to find an expensive meeting room that will hold around 30 people. This will enable you to book four parties at once.
