Direct Sales – Can You Make Full-Time Money In A Home Party Plan Business?

If you are looking to make money with a home business and you are considering joining one of the Direct Sales Companies, there are a few things you need to consider before going down the network marketing path.

Most recruiting consultants with a Direct Sales company will tell you that you can make a lot of money by joining their company and working the business on a full-time basis. While that is true for some people…the real truth is…only a small percentage of those in network marketing make thousands of dollars each month. Furthermore, for the few who do make the larger amounts of money in Direct Sales, those people have been in the business for a couple of years. You will not make millions and you certainly won’t make a lot of money overnight.

Working a home party plan type of business takes a lot of hard work and it does cost money! If any recruiter tells you that business is so good and that customers run to you without you having to do anything…that is a lie. Customers never magically find a home business consultant. You will have to spend consistent time each and every week promoting and marketing your business for it to be a success. Furthermore…you will have on-going business expenses such as ordering new catalogs, order forms, mailing supplies, samples and if you are promoting that business online, you will have internet expenses as well. Having a home party plan business isn’t always cheap.

In addition to the expenses there is the “time” factor. Will you have a minimum of 15 hours a week to work on your business? You will need to call up people you know to try to get party bookings and orders. You will need to spend time on advertising, marketing and networking for your business and after all of that is done, you will be responsible for conducting parties in your hostesses homes. If you want to make decent money you will need to recruit and train those who join your team. All of this can add up to 15+ hours per week! If you have the time…then a Direct Sales company may be for you.

The upside to having this type of business is that if you are willing to commit the time, energy, hard work and money to working and marketing this type of business…it can eventually make you a full-time income. For most consultants, it takes a minimum of 1 year before that full-time income is generated.

Can you make full-time money in a home party plan business? Yes you can! However, you will have to work your butt off to make it a success and you will need to choose the right company and leader to work with you to achieve business success.
