  • Let them know what THEY can get.
    Talk about how much FUN it will be- people are looking for fun right now.
    Wear it everywhere and make an effort to go out in it more!
    Host your own "dress up" type party where they can have fun learning how to make the most of "a little" and how to mix and match. We like to look pretty even if money is tight.
    Find other consultants in other businesses and maybe plan an "open house."
    Travel to where a better market might be- a 30 minute drive might be worth it!
    Is there any way a bride and bridal party could benefit from a party- tis wedding season!

    And don't forget that the "lipstick" effect is in full swing right now- People can't afford the full make-over and haircut but they can buy lipstick so they do. Small indulgences are being enjoyed. The company I am with in our group is seeing an INCREASE in sales not a decrease.

    Good luck!

  • Sorry to be a downer, but different parts of the country (or even a state) can sell certain items where others cannot. It could be due to the economy, the whims of the population of the area, whatever. Depending on how expensive this jewelry is, you may not get many "takers" for your parties. Good luck!

  • Sometimes when the economy is so tough, people pull back on those things that aren't necessities. You may want to go with something that is more "consumable." If you enjoy working with people and giving them the joy of a great product, but need a better option right now, I would love to share with you about a company that has been steadily growing and moving forward in spite of the economy. Feel free to enter your info at, and I'll give you a call to see if perhaps this would be a better option while you are waiting on the economy.
