Direct Sales Party Games, Games and More Games

There are thousands of games and variations that can be used at a direct sales party. You are only limited by your imagination. If you try a game and it doesn’t appear to work, move on to a different game.

In the direct sales business, trial and error is often the best way to figure out what works. The important thing is to make sure that the game provides value to all involved.

As you gain more experience in the industry, you will have a better feel for what works for you, your products, and your audience. Your trial and error will have less error and more success.

Games can be used just for fun, to help recruit team members, and to increase bookings. Each type has an important purpose and will contribute to a successful and profitable home business. A good home party show game should be fun, encourage participation, increase the energy level, and offer a prize or prizes at the end.

Increase Bookings With Home Show Games

One of your principal goals at every home show should be to get one or two new bookings. One of the best ways to do this is just to ask everyone at the party if they would like to host a party. To encourage people to say yes, get them excited by playing games. Party games should be:

  • Fun
  • Easy to set up and play
  • Interactive
  • Effective – they should work to get bookings!

One of the best games to play is a variation of the “What’s Your Score?” game. You make up a list of things to ask the attendees. Everyone gets five points if they answer
“yes” to your question or have the specific item you ask about. Examples of questions to ask:

  • Who has a cell phone in their purse?
  • Who has been to a home party before?
  • Who is married?

There are thousands of easy questions to ask. The goal is to design questions that most people will respond to with a “yes.” You want everyone’s score to be similar. At the end, you will give anyone who books a party an extra 25 points. The person with the most points gets the grand prize; the prize needs to be an item that is good enough to motivate people to want to win. If you are in the adult toy business, this is a great game to play because the right questions can encourage plenty of wild fun. This game will increase bookings and help you succeed in the direct home sales industry.

Home Party Business Shows Must Be FUN!

home party plan salesWhen the typical person starts a direct sales home party business, there is a very predictable pattern: They call all their friends, have a couple of get-togethers and sell some products. After a couple of parties, people are no longer showing up and no longer buying product and the person gives up.

Key To Party Plan Success = FUN!

The reason people fail so often in the home party plan business is that they forget the business model the entire industry was built on. In one word, that model was ‘fun’. Hosting fun events causes would-be customers to return and makes fellow team members feel more involved.

FUN Shows Keep People Returning

It really is the FUN that keeps people returning to the show. Traditional advertising says that your average consumer must be exposed to an advertising message 7 times before making the commitment to actually buy. You see this played out every day – If you watch 2 hours of television on one channel, think how many times you will see a certain commercial repeated over and over. Now, if someone does not enjoy your events and chooses not to return after 1 or 2 times, it’s clear that you never get to that magical 7 exposures. Yes, you’ll still make sales because the 7 exposures is an average (and let’s face it, some people will buy because they don’t want to look you in the eye otherwise).

These sales though, aren’t a viable business. Now, if you’re hosting interesting gatherings that people actually look forward to and invite friends as an entertaining run night out, imagine how much better sales will be as returning friends are exposed to the products over and over.

It Is A Party!

Too many people think of the gatherings as a “demo”. No one on the planet has ever been excited to see a demo. The easiest way to inject fun into this boring concept is to add a theme and make it a real party. If you sell cooking utensils, don’t just call people asking them to attend a demo, why not invite them to Tex/Mex party? Get them excited. Offer a prize for the person who brings the best recipe. A demo is a lot of people watching while one person tries to get them to buy something. Having them get involved in a theme, using the products and thinking how handy the products would be for their own lives changes the entire landscape of the event. Everyone wants to have fun. How about a margarita party? When you can get people to associate having a good time with whatever product you represent, your chances of success in the business go through the roof.

Consultants Make Home Shows Fun With Games

Many home party consultants like to play games at their shows. If you are and you are having trouble with bookings then consider the fact that maybe the games are not fun. Fun games will help with bookings. Download a FREE party plan e-book for fun home party games.
