Marketing your business opportunity at a direct sales home party is really just creating desire.

When you create desire for your business using recruiting gift bags people will be asking you if they can have more information.

Isn’t that what we all want?

One approach to soft sell your business opportunity at your parties is to use the opportunity gift bag approach.

Share Recruiting Gift Bags

Put together your direct sales recruiting gift bag and use it at your home shows to sell your business opportunity.

When you prominently display your bags on the table it will be a reminder for you and a source of curiosity for your guests.

How To Make Recruiting Packets

Your gift bag is really just well-packaged opportunity information. You can put anything in your recruiting packet that you want and it will vary based on your company’s product and recruiting materials.

This is a good starter list for the average direct sales consultant:Opportunity Gift Bags

  • Bright-colored card that lists “What’s In The Kit”
  • Copy of your commission check
  • Opportunity brochure
  • Opportunity CD or DVD
  • Gift: small under $1.00 item, preferably costing only pennies.
  • Decorative sticker or label with a message to hold it shut

Using The Opportunity Bag

Now that you have your direct sales opportunity gift bags prepared, use them at your home party to market your direct sales opportunity.

Think big! Bring at least three to each show.

    Thanks for the tips! Some well-thought-out ideas! What kind of ‘small gift’ are you talking about?

      Shared by: Deb Bixler:

      The ‘small gift’ could be anything. But generally under a dollar. I gave a Payday candy bar and a (my cost) 87 cent (retail value $1) cook book.

      So, depending on the products it could be anything. A spice sample, or a shake single serve sample, a cosmetic lotion sample, etc.

      Not only are these well thought out ideas, they are proven systems that work to create desire!
