All About Me Home Parties
In today’s society, it seems to be an all about me era. As a business owner is it all about you? Are you practicing business as all about you? If you are, you may be setting yourself up for failure in your business.
As a business owner, at least a successful business owner, you must take yourself out of it and conduct your business as an all about them business. Any business, direct sales or other is all about the customer and hostess and is not about you. It has always been this way and still is today. Your focus must always be on your hostess and her guests.
Are your home parties all about you or all about them? First indication is the type of party that you hold. Is your party about you and your jewelry or is it about your hostess and customer having a fun time and receiving what they want or need? If all you are offering is a display of jewelry and asking people to attend and buy your jewelry whether directly or indirectly, you are conducting all about me parties.
Let’s put the shoe on the other foot (one thing many forget to do in business). How would you feel being invited to a home party simply to hear a demonstration of a product and then feel pressured to buy said product? Would this appeal to you? Would you attend? Would this be fun? Then why would it be any different for your hostess or her guests? Who would want to book one of these parties and invite their friends to it?
Think about what an individual, including yourself, is exposed to each day through television, radio, social media, email and more. All about me businesses advertising come and buy from me. I have great products! Come and buy from me. I have a sale! Come and buy from me. You will receive a free gift! Just give me your credit card! Most individuals are numb to this constant advertising and simply ignore it. Do you want to be another one of those businesses?
Boring jewelry parties equals bring your credit card, buy my products, because it is all about me. When you invite guests and your hostess to a boring jewelry party and you simply offer a display of jewelry and say indirectly, bring your credit card and come buy from me, you will receive, less sales, less guest turnout and less bookings. You are very simply setting yourself up for failure.
All About Them Home Parties
All about them home parties are focused on the hostess and the guests. All about them parties are focused on fun themes that you can offer, contests, games and prizes. It is about giving and offering. These themes can not simply be stated on an invitation. No, you must conduct these parties as you would a child’s party. The theme should carry through the entire party from the invitation to the thank you card. Think about all about them when advertising too!
For example, let’s say you are having a Pink Party. Now I want to warn you, never offer a theme without letting the guests know that it is a Bella Shaye Jewelry Party. This is underhanded and sneaky and will offend your guests. The invitations would be pink. You would hold a contest for the best pink hair or pink outfit, etc. Your door prize would be pink. Your games would be based around pink including the decorations and snacks. Yes you should be playing games and having contests and giving away prizes. Everyone loves to go home with something free! At Bella Shaye we offer inexpensive incentive gifts for your games in your boutique for just this purpose.
Would this party would be much more fun for your guests and hostesses? Is the party focused on their fun?
Ask yourself, what can you offer your hostess? What can you offer your guests? It isn’t just the theme, it is excellent customer service by offering ways to get the most for their dollar, excellent hostess coaching, offering your business as a solution to their problems, offering bookings as a way to have a great time themselves and earn free product, and offering a service as a party planner and entertainment for the evening. What are the needs of your hostesses and guests? What is missing in their lives? What can you offer with your business? How can you help?
If you have a hostess who can not host in their home. Offer to host at their work, club etc. These are called trunk parties where you take the party to them. If hostesses can not host during the evening hours, offer to do a party during the day. You get the idea. How can you overcome their problem by offering a solution. What can you offer them?
Do you know people who say that they never get to get out? That they don’t have anywhere to wear that outfit? That they need to raise money for a cause? What can you offer them at your home parties? Focus on them.
The beautiful thing about making it all about them, is that it pays you back with increased sales, increased bookings and increased team building and not to mention happier hostesses and guests! Your guests start talking about the great time they had at your home parties and next thing you know, you are a success!
