How to Start a Home Party Business

Growth Trends for Related Jobs

Home party businesses have been quite successful, and you can be successful while helping others as well. Most of us can remember family members holding parties for selling makeup or food containers at their homes. Everyone gets together at one person's home where there is food, drinks and a host or hostess. There is brand new, interesting and shiny merchandise on show for sale. The hostess will slip out when the night is over with her sales in hand and a smile on her face. However, before she leaves, she makes sure she offers the same home party business opportunity to everyone at the party - not just because she will make more commissions, but because she wants others to have the financial freedom she has, too. You can do the same thing by starting your own home party business. According to, "Home parties now account for roughly 29 percent of the nearly $30 billion in U.S. direct sales, and 13.6 million Americans bought or sold goods from home in 2004".

Choose:You need to decide what you want to sell. This is the focus of your business and it should be your passion. When you are passionate about what you sell you will be more successful. When you sell something you care about your customers will see your excitement and be more likely to buy from you. Take some time to think about what kind of products you want to focus on. Some examples are jewelry, food, gifts, kitchen products, clothing, and home products.

Plan and Research:Start a home party business by creating a business plan. A business plan is important, because you will be forced to think about situations that you might not normally think about. You can either write your own business plan or have a business writer write your business plan for you. You will be asked those hard questions either way.

Start Your Home Party Business:Hold your first home party and make it a huge event. Get as many people as you can to sign up as consultants. This is what makes home party businesses successful. It is the core of the business itself. You could hold your first home business at a venue and have it open to the public. Offer complimentary refreshments and samples to get more people to come to your home party. Host it well with a planned speech and socialize with everyone.
