Sell Your Home Party Experience, Not Your Direct Sales Product

The key to success as a home party plan direct seller (in my opinion) can be summed up in that simple sentence. It’s all about the experience. If you can create and deliver that to your home party guests and hosts, everything else will flow from it.


That almost seems too obvious and simple to even warrant space here on a direct sales blog like this one. Except that it’s the most important message I share, ever. That’s because as direct sellers, we tend to make it all about us and our products during our parties, arrogantly thinking that’s why everyone is there.


It’s not.


They’re there to have fun, to share a great evening with old friends and maybe meet some new ones, and to relax. Your products and demonstration can certainly be a part of that, don’t get me wrong, but as far as the reason they’re there? Nope, sorry, I just don’t buy it.


Think about it.


I don’t have to come to your party to get your products, do I? Not in this day and age. I can order them online without leaving the comfort of my own home. So why would I come to my friend’s house on a week night after a hectic day of work and taking care of kids and whatever else is on my crazy busy agenda today? Because I want to have an experience.


So just find ways to make it fun for your guests, and everything else will flow from that experience. Plus (and this is just a really nice perk), you’ll have more fun, too. Who doesn’t want to have fun and get paid for it?
