Advertising ideas

I have signed up for a home party company to be a consultant. I have been doing this online and want to get enough in commissions to buy my home party kit. The problem is that I am having trouble figure out how to get my name out there and how to get people to place orders. I have offered discounts but nothing has worked so far. Any suggestions on advertising?

  • If your real ambitious you could design a flyer then hand them out to all the moms after school (that is if you have school age kids). Also at our local grocery stores , they have bulletin boards anyone can hang messages on them. Peoples mailboxes?

  • Take out an ad in the paper, put something on craigslist, send out emails or letters to friends and family. Once you get one good party word of mouth will help too. Also ask other consultants for their recommendations. They may have some different ideas too!

  • I would look for free advertising, we have a baragin finder that is free to place ads in, print a few flyers and post at the local stores or markets, a few incentives added to your facebook page for booking or sales, there are plenty of ways to advertise for free that way you keep your profit.
    Vistaprint has free biz cards you pay for shipping but just place a few in some stores or hand them out when at the store or resturant.


    Good luck with everything.

  • ON YOUR FACEBOOK PAGE TAGG THE PEOPLE THAT HAVE BOUGHTT OR THROWN PARTIES... SO WHEN YOU POST PHOTOS WHEN YOU TAG THEM IT GOES ON THEIR PROFILE AND THEIR FRIENDS SEE THAT THEY BOUGHT AND ARE MORE LIKELY TO BE INTERESTED... LOOK ME UP I DID REALLY GOOD... "COZY BIBBLES"
