For this week’s Frugal Friday I wanted to write about hosting direct sales parties and the benefits they bring.
As a follow up to my Stockpiling for the Holiday’s post I failed to mention another source for inexpensive gifts for gift giving. Host a home party! I was in direct sales for 11 years and during that time I had a lot of parties for other home based business people in “exchange” for hosting one for me. What I found from all those year’s of hosting parties is that several home based business offer great hostess incentives for having an in home or catalog party.
If you are a stockpilier you can host a party very inexpensively! I recently hosted a jewelry party and served a simple dessert and beverages and that was it! How simple and those items came directly from my stockpile. I love having parties because it is a great excuse to have my friends over and clean my house. By hosting an in home party you can really reap the benefits if the company offers a good hostess program.
For example this past spring I hosted a Thirty One Party and earned over $300.00 in FREE product! The best time to take advantage of hosting a party is when home based business offer DOUBLE HOSTESS AWARDS! This is how I did so well when I hosted my party! Not only do you have an excuse to invite friends over and have fun you are able to earn FREE product for very little effort. I was able to use that $300 worth of FREE product for over 10 gifts for Christmas! I always say that you need to think outside of the box when it comes to gift giving and this is prime example.
Are you in direct sales? Here is a linky for you to link up your website!
