Many years ago I worked for a big cosmetics company in the UK. It was a company that had very few outlets and sales were made by “consultants” who sold to people in their homes through the form of parties, with hosts receiving free products as a reward for inviting people into their home. It was one of the best jobs I have ever had as I love meeting new people and when I love something I’m selling I get quite passionate about it!
One of the best things about being on lockdown has been that I’ve had time to think about how to expand and grow my business. Although I have a great client base along the whole of the Costa Blanca, and have sent my products to Madrid, Barcelona, the UK, Singapore and New Zealand, there are still so many people out there who don’t know about me and my business. Handmade, personalised gifts are not easy to come by here in Spain and I love that I have something unique. So I’ve decided to take on board my experience of selling through parties and plan to start holding these events as soon as we are allowed social gatherings again. Lockdown has also given me the opportunity to source and make new products and find new suppliers, so I can provide a wide range of gifts to suit anyone and everyone!!
So how do I plan to carry out my parties? That’s where you lovely lot come into play. It’s simple really, you invite your friends round for an afternoon/evening and ask them to “bring a bottle” (that way you just need to supply a few nibbles!!). I will give you a digital invitation to send to each of them. Half an hour before your pals arrive I will come and set up my things. I just need a small table or floor space. I will bring along a selection of my items such as frames, dream catchers, light bottles, plaques, plus many more items. I will talk about each product, you and your friends get to look and hold things and ask questions. Anyone who wants to order anything can do so (payment required when ordering), and then you, as the host, will not only receive a small gift for hosting, but will also receive 15% of all sales to spend on items of your choice, or take it in the form of a voucher for you to spend at a later date. If two or more people book a party with me you will receive a further 10€ to spend. So you can’t lose!! Once I’ve made all the orders up (within two weeks), I will deliver them to you for your friends to collect! It’s a great way to get everyone together, and I will take up about an hour doing my demonstration and then everyone can chat and catch up!!
After being unable to socialise for so long this will be a lovely way for people to get together. I know this time is still a long way off for many people, however, as we get into summer I hope to begin carrying out these events. If it’s something you may be interested in then please feel free to contact me for more information.
