Booking at a Party – Quite often people will book their party with the person who was the consultant at an event they attended.  A lot of people do not know half a dozen different consultants with each company so they pick the person that is easiest and that they have met already.  But if you do not get along with this person, there are other options.

Ask Friends – If you have not been to a party recently and are looking for a direct sales consultant, you can try asking friends if they know anyone.  You may be surprised at who they know and that they can hook you up with.

Company Website – A great method to find consultants is to visit the company’s website.  Chances are there is a spot where you can enter where you live and it will list several consultants in the area that you can get in touch with.  If you are not sure, pick a few different ones and send them a few questions.  See how they respond and see which one seems to mesh with you the best.  Even if you do not see anyone in your area, you can contact the company and they will find someone for you.  I recently acquired a customer who did this – the consultant search wasn’t working for her, she called my company and they sent me the lead.

Local Classifieds – Another place you can look for a consultant is your local classified ads.  Depending on the website you are using will determine how successful you will be.  I know that I have difficulties getting ads posted on some sites as others like to report them so that they are the only ones.

Facebook – Try searching for the company you are looking for on Facebook.  I find that those who are local to me come up first in my searches.  If the consultant has a fanpage or information in their profile, they should come up.

Search Engines – Go to your favorite search engine and type in “Company Name” and your city.  I have had a few people tell me that they located me that way.

Between all these methods, you should be able to find someone to come in and do a party for you.  If you can’t, it may be an indication that you should join the company as you may have an area that no one is in yet!
