Are you a new consultant with a home party plan company? If so, there are a few things you should know to help get you started with your new home party plan business.

There are many things that will affect your success with a home party plan type of business, the faster you get started the faster you will make money & be successful at your new home business.

Below you will find some great tips & ideas on how to move your business forward & to do so quickly!

#1. Once your consultant business opportunity kit arrives to your home, go through it thoroughly. I recommend that you open up your catalog and start reading it cover to cover to familiarize yourself with all of the products. One way to do this is to take 3×5″ index cards and make up a set of Product Flash Cards. On the front side of each card put the product name & a picture of it (if available) and on the backside list the product features, item number, price and any other product facts.

Once you make up your Product Flash Cards, use them! Just like in grade school, flash cards can help you memorize and learn your products quickly.

If you are a My Pure Pleasure consultant, there are a set of product index cards already created in your backend. Download them and match them to the products you received in your kit.

#2. Read through your Consultant Business Manual. As you are reading through it, have on hand 2 different colored highlighter markers. Take one and highlight areas that are important and the other color highlight areas that you need more information on. Then make a list of your questions and contact your recruiter/sponsorer or your Upline Manager to get all of your questions answered. I recommend to all party plan consultants to read their consultant business manuals atleast twice cover to cover. Its also nice to go back to it frequently to use as a reference point.

As a My Pure Pleasure consultant, you have access to MPPU (My Pure Pleasure University) where you have training tracks that provide you with valuable business-building information. sales techniques, and organization to help you become successful in every aspect of your business. Be sure to at least read through the Blueprint For Success. When/If you have questions, give us a call at Intimate Tickles. 877-531-5541 X2.

#3. Make a detailed list of everyone you know! Friends, Family, Co-workers, Neighbors, Teachers, Community Leaders etc. This will be your BASE Customer List. I recommend you contact everyone on your list via phone, in-person, email or postal mail to offer them a catalog and your business card. Print out flyers about your Hostess Plan and Current Hostess Specials and print out flyers about any consumer specials that your company is offering. Include those flyers with every catalog you hand out. For extra incentive, you could include a discount coupon that they can use on their first purchase from you. Use holidays to create an additional buzz, for instance, for Valentines Day Intimate Tickles, an adult toy home party category business, create Sexy Valentines Day Baskets.

Your My Pure Pleasure backend contains forms to use to create you list, as well as a collection of flyers, business cards, and post cards to print out for your marketing efforts.

#4. Hold your First Party with you being the Host or do a Mystery Hostess Party, you will want to do this within 3 weeks of joining your home party plan company. Invite everyone you know! This will give you practice on doing a home party show and expose your new business & products to your family & friends from your Contact Customer List above. The more you practice & the more parties you do, the more comfortable you will be doing it plus the more money you will earn!

#5. Attend any meetings or events that are sponsored by your party plan company. They offer training, motivation, idea sharing & friendship. These days we all lead very busy lives but if you don’t attend them, you are really selling yourself short on this valuable resource to get yourself started with your new home business.

My Pure Please does company business calls each and every Tuesday. Intimate Tickles does additional team meeting at different times of the week.

#6. Attend local commerce & business events in your community. You can build up business contacts & business references by attending these events. You need to network with as many people as possible and get your business out there to be seen. Your business will not promote itself, its your job to promote & advertise your new business.

Check out Meetup.com, Vistage.com, and discover your local BNI. Each of these will give you a chance to network and meet new people and business owners. Another resource is ryze.com. its FREE to join and there are many FREE groups you can sign up to.

#7. Set aside time a few times a week to work on your business. Just like any job or business, you need to set a schedule for “work related time.” The more you work on your business the more it will grow & flourish. I use a large wall calendar in my home office and a daily planner and I schedule in blocks of time to work on my business. Every week I sit down and plan my week along with goals that I want to accomplish for that week. Draft up a plan and stick to it. Don’t forget your social media marketing and blogging.

#8. Start a Referral Program. Reward your party hosts & customers who refer others to you. They are more apt to give you referrals if there is something in it for them. This could be a free small product or a discount on their personal order. Think about your referral program right away and get promoting it!

#9. Attitude! Be excited about your new business & the products that you offer! The more you are enthused about your new business & products, the more enthused your party hosts & customers will be too!

#10. Share your Business Opportunity with everyone you know & come into contact with. Don’t assume that they know and would not be interested!

Bonus Recommendation: Increase your sales by letting people know how your products can benefit them and fit into their lives! The more you talk about your business & products the more customers will want to purchase them! To do this, ask questions about your customers likes & dislikes.

You can make up a customer survey to find out these types of answers and offer your customer a one time discount for filling out your Preferred Customer Survey. Use this survey to recommend products to your customer or to alert them to future sales on the products that you customer loves. StellarSurvey.com and SurveyMonkey.com are two great places to create free surveys. Facebook also has a module that will allow you easily create a survey within your group and push it out to your friends and their friends. This is a great method to raise your social media awareness, however, this method does not allow you to get their contact information.

Buying Facebook Likes. The False Advertising Of Social Media. #falsefriends

I’ve been asked by a few consultants if it is a good idea to buy Facebook likes. Yes, you can buy Facebook likes. It is such a bad idea that, like other posts of this fashion, I am not even going to include links to those companies that offer this service.Say NO To Buying Facebook Likes Ninety-eight percent of both the members of the Golden Generation (ages 67 and up) and Gen Z’ers (ages 18 to 22) who use social networking sites are on Facebook. There are about 1.11 billion users on Facebook (a stat that is hard to get right as the number jumps significantly every hour), 665 million are active daily, and about 1.13 trillion likes since it’s launch (May 2013 Update). A common goal among Facebook pages is to acquire as many likes as possible. It’s not so different from our time in high school. The more people that like us, the more popular we are – and popularity was everything! The fact is, Facebook likes ARE important, but not for the reason that most companies using the media realize. Too many companies think that if you come across their page and are greeted with 1000, 5000, 10000 likes, that you will have the impression that this is a popular page, and you should like it too. Right now, they are probably right – but very soon – because of posts like this one, the tactic they are using to boost their likes is going to backfire on them. Consumers are getting smarter every day, and you will soon recognize immediately the false advertising, the outright fraud that these “like buyers” are putting in their faces. Having a high number of likes on your Facebook page signals to consumers that your company is established, well-known, and can get its name out there. We understand where the incentive to buy Facebook likes comes from, but we recommend you stay away. Buying Likes is the easy, underhanded, sleazy car salesman solution to the problem of building a Facebook pages engagement and reach. It only creates a temporary fix to the more permanent issue which is to gain consumer engagement. Using a company to boost your number of likes creates a hollow fan base that won’t interact with the brand which is what the goal should REALLY be. So how can you tell when a company is calling you a fool? check the “Talking About This” metric. If the number of likes and other metrics don’t seem to correlate, you should be turned off immediately because the page is not authentic. Additionally, recently Facebook has begun to ban, block, and shut off pages that have obviously bought their bulk likes. Here is a good explain from Facebook: LIKES vs TALKING ABOUT THIS The average Likes to Talking About This ratio is from 5% – 25%. You can discover this number by taking the “Talking About This” and dividing it by the Likes. Intimate Tickles LLC Facebook page sports about 145 likes. The average Talking About This is around 35, or 25%. Pretty good engagement. Recently, after promoting a post, they climbed to 111 Talking About This. Now THAT’S a real set of likes. Let’s see who is fooling you… Facebook is a great way of connecting with your user base, generating value for you and your customers, and establishing a voice behind your corporate brand image. Throwing away money on Facebook likes doesn’t create genuine interest in your business and because the likes come from fake profiles, Facebook has the potential to flag your page as this practice goes against their terms and conditions. The cost/benefit ratio is too high, and you risk the real possibility of ruining your reputation when your potential consumers come up to speed and can see right away that you are false advertising. Slow and easy wins the race. Here are some tips to do it right… 8 Ways To Get More Facebook Likes 8 Surprising Ways To Be More Popular On Facebook Facebook Hashtags Have Arrived
