Home Party Planners Beware! – Start For Free Typically Means Stuck For Free.

Beware Of FreeHey! Look at this! I can start a home party plan business for free!Let’s think about this for just a moment, shall we? If you attended a home party at your friends house, let’s say it is an adult toy party (Since this is what Intimate Tickles LLC does, so we can relate), and the representative shows up, hands out a few catalogs, and starts directing you to pages to describe the lotions, potions, lingerie and toys. No table is set up, no toys are available to look at, touch, and feel the buzz. No lotions to smell, taste, or rub on. Not even a scratch and sniff (that’s a joke, there is no scratch and sniff!). Would you purchase anything? Would it make any sense to you at all to sit there for an hour and have someone describe a catalog to you?Well, the representative took advantage of a “Start your business for free” offer, so unfortunately, she did not get any products to show. She got a few catalogs and a few order forms and was told that she can use those to do her first party, make a few bucks, and then use those sales to stock her kit. So basically, she is asking you to help her start her business by funding the business kit she needs to actually get started. Offended? I would be! And as an entrepreneur interested in starting your own business, you should be offended as well. The opportunity to embarrass yourself at your first few parties by showing up with nothing but catalogs and a smile are not the only issues you should beware of when presented with a Get Started For Free opportunity. Let’s run through the typical scenario; (keeping in mind that when you join a home party plan company, you typically have a 30 day out) wrongway You’d like to start your own business in the home party plan arena. You’ve decided that you want to find an adult toy party home party plan (and why not, it’s a 15 billion dollar a year market!). You’ve research a few companies and have noticed that the typical start-up costs for a starter kit are about $90 to $1000, depending on the kit you purchase. But wait! Here is a company offering FREE start-up, of course, for a limited time only. You are a bit short on money, so this is perfect! You are now a business owner. You are your own boss in your own adult toy party home party plan business. You don’t have any products, but you’ve signed on and you have a name and (hopefully) you have a website. You don’t know whether the products are good quality, because you have not tested them out. You (again hopefully) have a few catalogs and order forms for your friends to look at. You can’t answer questions of “what do YOU like”, because, again, you have not tested them. But! You are in. A month later you are finally able to order some products so that you can do a real party. Alas, you discover that some products arrive broken, other products don’t have the “buzzz” that was promised, and that dildo is a lot smaller than it looks in the catalog. You further discover that you’ve joined a company that carries about 1/4 of the products of the other companies and your customers are looking for products that, well, this company simply does not carry. You decide that this may have been a mistake. You've been roped and tied Well, that’s a problem. Your 30 day out has come and gone. Sure, you can quit, but odds are, there is no place in this industry that you can turn to. Most home party plan companies have written into your contract that you are free to leave whenever you desire, however, you are NOT permitted to join a competing companies parties plan for a period of AT LEAST a year. You’ve just been roped in, and tied up. Bottom line: 1) If they are offering you free start-up, odds up they are hurting for consultants. Wonder why that is? 2) To get your business off the ground you are going to need, at least, business cards. You’ll need to do some kind of low cost marketing, like printing out flyers and trying to get them hung somewhere. You’ll want to get listed in some local directories, which can cost from $10 – $100 depending on the size and visibility of the directory. My point here is, if you don’t have the $99 for, at least, the low end starter kit, you should probably wait anyway. 3) As home party plan trainers, we have discovered that an overwhelming percentage of those who join this type of opportunity because of a “limited time” offer, should have waited till they have the money for a kit and start the right way! When you are TRULY ready to get started with a truly AMAZING adult toy home party plan company – take a good hard look at Intimate Tickles LLC and My Pure Pleasure. Not free, just the best company to back you in reaching your goals.

How To Build Your Home Party Plan Business Through Blogging

Socializing Your Home Party Plan Business

Socialing Your Home Party Plan BusinessBlogging can be the difference between an adult toy home party plan online business presence that generates leads, or one that joins the other needles in the haystack. It doesn’t take rocket science to know that you won’t get far in the online world if people don’t know you exist. So, how do you get your home party plan name out? How can you generate buzz for your business? One direction is to do it by blogging. In order to be successful in your blog marketing campaign you simply have to take a step back and understand how people use the internet. People go online for two reasons – they’re looking for answers, or they want to watch flash mob videos. Basically, people jump online to find information or to be entertained. Your goal is to become one of those reasons (or a combination of both). Hop over to Rivalhost for Business Building Blogging Tips. Blogging for business is not a new concept, but for many small businesses, especially home party plan businesses, it can be an extremely effective tool to build your social media footprint, establish your brand, or position yourself in your area of expertise. The ultimate benefit of blogging is the opportunity to communicate your expertise and establish your business as a resource for that product and/or service. Today, merely having a web presence is not enough to drive your business growth. In fact, a static site with no regular new content and no engagement with visitors might work against you. So what’s the simplest and most effective way to deliver what your customers are after? In a word: blogging. A blog allows you to attract new customers, build brand awareness, and inspire more prospects to buy from you. Not to mention the SEO benefits: the average blog attracts 55% more visitors and gets indexed 434% more by search engines than a traditional website, giving you exposure like never before.

Exploring The History Of The Vibrator: Air Powered Vibrators

Vibrators were used exclusively by doctors up until around 1900.

The first of such devices was made in 1869, when American physician George Taylor patented the first steam-powered massage and vibratory apparatus. Unfortunately, their use was exclusive — the units were costly to manufacture, difficult to move and marketed for use by spas and physicians only.

During the turn of the century, vibrators began to be marketed as home appliances.

So says Good Vibrations Antique Vibrator Museum From Pinterest we learn that female hysteria was a once-common medical diagnosis, made exclusively in women, which today is no longer recognized by modern medical authorities as a medical disorder. Its diagnosis and treatment were routine for many hundreds of years in Western Europe. Since ancient times women considered to be suffering from hysteria would sometimes undergo “pelvic massage” — manual stimulation of the genitals by the doctor until the patient experienced “hysterical paroxysm” (orgasm). The history of sex toys can be traced back thousands of years to dildos made of stone or wood, but Queen says the museum is pegged strictly toward 20th century erotic instruments.
