This may seem like a silly question and one that you reply “Duh!” to, but hear me out.
When you mention to someone that you do home parties, how often does someone give you a horrified look and then runs away from you as fast as they can? Quite often? Then maybe it is time to re-look at what you do and consider renaming your event.
Oohh.. did you see that? I called it an event! That is a start! Let us start by calling these “In Home Events”. Doesn’t that sound a bit nicer than an in home party and something that maybe isn’t so scary?
Let’s take it one step further. What type of products do you sell that you could have an event for? If you sell food products, maybe you want to have a “Tasting Event” instead of a tasting party. Its interesting how one word can make a difference as an event just sounds that much nicer and less intimidating. It also tells people that something is going on with food, they get to taste it but an event says that they do not have to come out and spend money if they do not want to. There are too many people that associate an in home party to spending money that they run far away from you.
As well, in this context, event becomes a bit of a novel idea which may compel more people to come out and see what is going on. They have not been to an event before and they are curious. As a direct sales consultant, you can run these differently than your regular in home party and make it more interesting and interactive for the guest. Get them involved – taste the products, help you put them together, or whatever they can help you with – and see if it doesn’t help to increase your sales at the end of the night.
