Several years ago while searching eBay for Gardening Tools, I ran across a company called eFavorMart. I was wowed not only at their awesome assortment of personalized goodies, but at the PRICE! Everything from customized organza bags, matchbooks, napkins, favor boxes... but all at a price that was much more reasonable than I ever would have expected. eFavorMart is geared mostly towards weddings, but with a little imagination, you can really come up with some awesome tools to boost your home party plan business!
Booking Parties is the real lifeline of the Home Party Plan Business. Without Parties... you really do not have a Business. Sure, you can have outside random orders, but it is at the Party that the real "magic" happens. My mantra always is - One party a week you are maintaining a business, two parties a week you are building a business!
One of my favorite Recruiting Tools is a Brag Book. Simply put, this is a simple binder full of personal pictures, awards, and thoughts about how your life has been enriched by being a Party Plan Consultant.
One of my favorite tools for success is a Vision Board. A Vision Board is simply a visual representation of your wants and dreams - all mashed together in one place. There is no "right" or "wrong" to a Vision Board. The idea behind this is that when you surround yourself with images of who you want to become, what you want to have, where you want to live, what you want to drive, how you want to impact the world, or where you want to vacation, and by doing so, your life changes to match those images and those desires.

Upselling is one of the easiest - yet overlooked - ways to increase your income significantly in your Home Party Plan Business. The term "upselling" means simply to add on additional products or services to a sure sale. The best part of upselling is that it is practically effortless, since the customer is already committed to the initial sale. By presenting additional "add on" type products in a relax, assumptive manner, you will increase the sale - and your income - quickly and easily.
