Hosting A Successful Party or Book Party

Below are some different flyers with Hostess instructions on "How to Host a Successful Book Party" each Flyer is different. Feel free to edit each of them or combine them to suit your specific needs .

They can also be edited for other types of parties, not just book parties. Make-over parties are usually a hit and Mani/Pedi Parties can also be a lot of fun.

Here are some ideas for coaching your hostesses (or yourself) through a party.

1- Have your hostess pick out the things she wants for free. Then calculate it up to figure out how much she needs to  be sold to get what she wants for free. This gives the hostess a goal to work towards.

2- Make sure the hostess has a list to of all her friends and family. It is easier to remember who to invite when you have a list.

3- Set a party date and a date through which you will continue to take orders from people that want to add onto their orders or from people that want to order but weren't able to make the party.

4- Remind your hostesses to ask everyone if they would be interested in hosting their own party and she can still qualify for more rewards for getting bookings, either in home or catalog parties.

5- Call the hostess at least twice after the party before you place your order to check for additional orders and to answer any questions. You may be able to encourage her at this point if things are not going as well as planned.

6- If the catalog/home party is local, instead of having the hostess deliver the products you can make all deliveries. This you gives you a chance to meet each customer and can introduce yourself to them, possibly picking up new recruits & customes.

7 - You don't have to have some one to book a party. You can just host one your self.

Invite all your customers and have them bring a friend. You can play games, sample new products, discuss makeup & skincare needs. 

When your customers bring their friends & family members it opens doors to potential new customers & recruits.

What ever you do just make sure that you always do a door prize and always offer refreshments.

 Also, keep in mind that only about 1/3 to 1/2 of the people you invite will show up. But you never know who will bring friends with them.

— friends, family, coworkers, new mothers, career women, retirees, etc.

SHOW the brochure to each of the people you think might be interested in placing an order through you.

SHARE!  The best thing you can do is to share your brochures, testimonials, and excitement.

BUILD sales by suggesting complimentary products, such as a lipstick with nail enamel or mascara with eyeliner.
