How to make your party plan business stand out from competition

What Does She Have That I Don't Have? Why does a competitor's business expand while yours stays still? It might be only the difference of making a few easy tweaks in your branding and image. But exactly what is branding, anyway? Think of branding as defining what a company is all about in the minds of its clients. Good branding differentiates your products and services in a positive way that really sticks in the minds of potential customers.

Let’s say you have been traveling around town without your morning coffee and are getting just a little cranky. Quick! What’s the first coffee shop chain that comes to mind? Chances are, you thought of Starbucks. Why?

* Attractive and easily read logo;
* Consistency of product, d├ęcor, signage, and interior; and

Party Plan Sales Bookings...How to get them easier

Image
Work smarter, not harder



Working sales parties and events can be fun, profitable and cost-effective.
(You already know this.)
You use them to present yourself and your products/services, sell products and make your income. Hopefully you are also using them to continue your success, namely booking your next event.
By nailing down at least 3 or 4 new events to work while at your present event, you will cut your booking efforts in half.

To make life easier...


In a nutshell, you are working smarter, not harder. You most likely have heard this from your top salespeople in your company, and the reason they use it is because it works.

You may feel shy or afraid to ask for more parties while working at one, but don't.
This is your business and your livelihood (or at least part of it). By making holding a party for you look attractive, fun and lucrative for the hostess, you can make it much easier to book at your current event.

One way to do it...

WAHMS: Build an amazing leads base with these tips

Tip One

Build an amazing lead base by getting your business in front of as
many people as you can. You can offer to do public speaking (too
scary?), or give away samples/catalog at other sellers' parties or
get a local leads group going (swap leads with other direct sales
pros).

However, you choose to do it, it's the most important task you
have. Once you have the leads, you can work them to book parties,
get sales, recruit them, ask them for referrals, etc. They are the
key to building a solid biz.

It seems the most daunting task for most small businesses, but it
is the one that pays off the largest. Once you find a
lead-generating system that works and isn't too painful :), you'll
do it!

For a killer lead system that can literally triple or quadruple the
number of leads you get in a single week, check out our Direct
Sales Guide: Get Booked Solid! It's all about getting leads and
working them. It's a simple, super cheap and effective method. (Now…

Are you spending enough time following up?


You probably work like crazy to get good leads, have interesting promotions and book sales events. But are you so busy focusing on getting NEW leads that you forgot about OLD ones?






Your "warm" leads (leads who have already met you/ bought from you, etc.) are the best source for new business...and new recruits. If they have purchased from you, then be sure to put them on your priority list for follow-ups. If you contact each warm lead each month (by phone, email or mail) you will certainly find yourself with higher sales.
It's easy to forget, get busy, get re-focused, etc., however if you establish a "tickler file" to keep yourself on track you will find it much easier. These files can be physical or electronic and will keep you in constant contact with your customers and potential customers.
Another method is to send out a monthly newsletter with a special promotion th…
