Sometimes people are turned off by the idea of
hosting a home party in their home. This can be for a number of
reasons; not enough space, too much of a mess, etc. When a potential
hostess starts to give you these reasons why a home party in her
home wouldn't work, you can present her with some other options.
Host a Home Party
- Another Friend's Home - Find a
friend or neighbor that would agree to host in her home. You can
even offer to split up the incentives, or give her a little
something extra for having the party in her home.
- Apartment Complex Club House -
Ideally if you lived in the complex this would work best. Often
times you can "rent" out time where no one else will bother you.
If you do not live in the complex approach the front office and
offer to invite the employees, etc. You will be surprised at how
many times they will let you use the space for free, and you
might even score some extra guests.
- Community Center - Just
contact your local community center and set up a time to reserve
- Church - Many Church's have
basements or banquet rooms that they will allow their members to
- Coffee Shop - Not every "Home"
Party has to be a huge event. Ask your hostess to invite a small
group of friends to go out for coffee, and a small presentation.
This is a great way to present your products and get some orders
in a short period of time in a relaxed setting.
- Restaurant - This is actually a
great idea and should be used more often for those who are not
interested in hosting a "Home" Party in their Home. Most
restaurants have private sections for large parties or meetings.
These are most often free to reserve. You can incorporate your
presentation like a lunch/dinner business meeting.
- Your Home -
If all else fails, suggest hosting
the party at your home. If it makes the difference between sales
and no sales, this might be a good option.
