Getting Party Bookings – Open House

August 10, 2011

When you joined your business I am sure that you were told about having an open house? Even if you have just started or you have been in party plan for a while you should organise an open house.

These can be called different things over the year, an open house, product launch, new season review anything you like. For all of you, you will be seeing a new catalogue arrive shortly with the products ready for Christmas so why not have a New Season review. Treat your home as a shop and allow people to come over and test the products and give their opinion on the items. It will allow you to have information to pass on to your customers that this is what people say about it. It will also mean that you will be able to get some orders from these people. Friends, work colleagues, neighbours and even people who you have met at fairs and fetes. Treat everyone as your friends, even roll it out to your mailing list.

The more people who you invite the more interest you will get. If you house is not that big then suggest a time across the day that you will have available and will be OPEN for business. It can be for a couple of hours in the morning, a couple in the afternoon and then an hour or so in the evening. Especially in the summer this is great if you can get a day that has great weather and get them to bring the kids with them to play in the garden.

Having an open house will make you more comfortable as it is your own surroundings and you will see the difference in your passion and enthusiasm for the products and the business. Open Houses are great to show people your products in a non party environment, the people attending will have a more relaxed attitude as well.

What are your thoughts, have you had an open house before, how did it go for you? Let us know your comments below
