Are some of your customers too busy to show at your parties? Trunk parties are a great option for direct sellers who have some busy customers who are not able to make it to a home party. What are trunk parties? Even though they are given the term trunk parties, they are basically a business on the go. You take the party to them! You have your business with you in your car and visit your busy customers as opposed to them hosting or participating in a home party. It is a beautiful thing when your product is jewelry- easy to tote around! I know of consultants who have build their entire business on trunk parties.
Sales, sharing your opportunity and bookings are done just the same. Perhaps one of your customers, would like to host a party or perhaps a trunk party too.
For some great ideas for trunk parties, think of where your targeted customers are during the day, evening and weekend. If your targeted customers are women, as we find are the majority for our jewelry, think of where the women are at different times of the day. For example, for team building and sales, moms could be found at the park, kids play groups, coffee shops etc. Think of places the women have to dress for work and you have yourself a gold mine!
Lunch time parties are terrific for those working women and they LOVE jewelry! Bring them a light lunch or snack and set up in a break room. Be sure to have a employee as your hostess to help you in the door and suggest the party shortly after a payday for best sales.
Keep in mind that after work parties may not be as successful. Think of your life if you work or have worked outside of the home, you are anxious to get out the door, pick up the kids and head home for dinner.
Be sure to always have your print materials with you such as your hostess packets and opportunity packets. You never know who may want to host a party or join your team. You must offer to everyone, because the majority of the time, they will not approach you! Remember you now have technology available to take your business out and about!
Another option for a trunk type of party is to conduct a catalog party with a trusted hostess and providing her with jewelry samples in a basket, cute jewelry box or another container to show the wonderful quality of our jewelry to her friends and family. Be sure to offer her incentives for bookings, leads for team members, sales goals etc as you would with excellent hostess coaching.
Here are some more great places for your trunk parties:
Real Estate Offices
Dental and Medical Offices
Sports Practices or games for the kids
Moms Clubs or Play Groups
Clubs or Groups of all kinds
Where can you think of where women frequent or work for your Trunk Parties? Who do you know that frequents one of the places above?
