Thinking of trying partylite

Yes, I know people say it's a pyramid scheme, but I like their stuff so much anyway I figure it's worth joining for the discountI know a lot of people who buy it too, seems legitimate. I don't have my hopes too high, I figure with some hard work I could turn it into a decent part time job, get $400-$800 a month. Has anyone done this before, any advice?  Have you tried a network marketing job in general?

I have a different home business and I'm a firm believer that it works if you do. :) Good luck to you!

I tried Partylite for 6 months and I couldn't make any money. That was just me though. You have to have a great network to make your business work! I didn't have a great network at the time. I will tell you that in order to get your 50% discount you do have to sell $500 a month. Make sure you have all of the facts before you make your decision. I do Mary Kay now and couldn't be happier! When you have the passion for something it will work. Good luck!

It's not a pyramid.  People often confuse direct sales with pyramids.  With a direct sales business you can make money without recruiting others (although not as much, but you still can).

If you're going to buy the product anyway, why not?  You'll get a discount.

I do Tupperware and Thirty-One.  I've been doing 31 for 3 years now, and when I was really active (meaning 1-2 parties a month because I worked full time), I was making about $250-$300 a month.  Obviously the more you work it, the better you'll do.  Tupperware, I just started, but I expect I'll have similar results.

If you ever want to trade discounts, let me know!  I love Partylite.!

 Go for it!  I think it all depends on what you want out of it.  Set your goals to a realistic levels and take the steps you need to reach them.  Become a student of marketing.  Promote your business and you should do just fine!  Best of luck!

Can I pick your brain a bit?  How long ago did you do it?  What kind of compensation plan do they have?  How much is a tax write off?  What was it like starting?  What do you have to do to continue to be an active consultant?  I heard you had to have at least 6 parties booked to begin with, is that true?  What was your impression of the leadership?  How did you feel about the quality of the product?  I really wanna be selling a good quality product, I haven't bought from them in a while cause it was one of those frivolous things I decided to give up when the economy went bad.  Apprieciate your feedback so much!!!

I was once part of nu skin for the sake of my cousin. It was okay but I have no interest in generating sales.

The basic commission for Partylite is 25% commission on your sales.  And once you reach $2000 in sales in a month, you get an extra 7%.   (I know because a friend tried to recruit me).

I suggest you schedule your first two parties before you even sign up.  I think they have an option where if you schedule a party first and you make a certain amount in sales, you don't have to pay up front for your kit.  $350 in sales is pretty reasonable.  My first 31 party had 4 guests, and I had $350 in sales.
