I'm looking for a party plan...

I have a home business with Ameriplan and love it. But I am looking for something I can do in home and vendor shows with.

Please provide me with basic details such as commission, average party size and monthly investment average. As well as your website (if you have one) and contact information. If I decide I am interested I will come to you. I would prefer something with a catalog for repeat orders as many people around here do not have the internet yet. I would also appriciate start up information such as sign on costs, kit costs and what those fees get me.

Thanks in advance!
**Not interested in Melaleuca, Avon, Mary Kay or Amway. Been there, didn't like those!
***Also, please do not waist your time or mine with postings about GPT or Survey sites. I ONLY want home party style businesses!

  • You might want to check your spelling. Plus, if you are wanting someone on here to help you out, you might want to come across as a little nicer. It reads pretty abrasive. My guess is if you are wanting to do home parties you are probably not as abrupt and abrasive as you sound. Might be why your aren't getting any responses. Sorry, just saying...

    It's just $99.00 for your startup fee, which includes a kit ( warmer, bar, scents, room spray, etc...), catalogs, business cards, 3 mo subscription for website ($10.00 mo after that), and lots more. If you click JOIN on the website, there is more info, as well as when you click can read all the info without actually enrolling if you're not ready. Let me know if I can help with more information, and questions. You can easily earn back your startup fee within the first month.

  • from the sound of it, direct sale is not your deal.

  • I am a rep with Scent Sations. We sell all natural products from candles to mineral make up. Commissions- retailing, you average 40 to 60%. If you are interested in team building please take a look at the commission structure on my website it goes into a lot of detail. Average party size really depends on how many people are invited. Most parties I do average $400 in sales. Start up fees range from $49.95 to $899.00 depending on what and how much of the products you want to start with. We have no sales quotas to meet but do have a monthly autoship of $39.95. Take a look around my website and let me know if I can answer any questions for you.

    Good Luck in your search.

  • I am with athome america, which sells beautiful home decor. Right now you can start for just taxes and shipping on your kit, which includes $500 worth of homewares and $100 of business. supplies. The only additional fee i can think of is your website, which is free your first 3 months, then $10.99 a month. Average party size really depends on you nd your hostess, buit is generally really good in the fall due to the holidays. Our commission rate is 25%. We have 2 catalogs right now, our year round catalog, and our smaller christmas catalog, and one of the best hostess programs i have seen! Check out my website
