Perfect Your Home Party Presentation
There are public speaking events going on all around you every day, so pay attention!
Use your down time to visit other consultants’ shows.
You will be amazed at how many tips you can pick up from another consultant – even someone in a totally unrelated field.
Listen to Presenters’ Words
The first step to boosting your home party business by watching others make their presentations is to pay careful attention to what they are saying to sell their products and services to the audience.
- What words did they rely on heavily?
- Were there more nouns, verbs or adjectives in their presentation?
- How did they employ emphasis?
- What rhythm of speech did they depend upon to stand out as a direct sales consultant?
Next, Watch Their Body Language
Words are powerful but there’s another dimension of communication that will be critical in your direct sales business, and that element is body language.

Make it a point to attend a number of different direct sales party events in your region that are hosted by leading consultants to see what they are doing – and not only saying – to make the sale and gain new distributors into their network.
- Do they smile a lot?
- Do they use their hands while they talk?
- Do they make a great deal of confident eye contact?
When you find a successful public speaker, try to mirror the things that they say and do and tailor them for your own dynamic approach.
Presentations Are Everywhere!
Opportunities to improve your presentation skills pop up everywhere; you just need to think creatively.
Your preachers, teachers, professional speakers, other party plan consultants, video conferences and commercials (never forget those infomercial pros!) all offer valuable insights during their “public speaking” event.
Pay attention and take notes on the observation guide of things that you thought were effective and those that were not. You can then incorporate the best into your presentation.
Using the observation guide and regularly attending other parties or presentations will give you clever strategies that you can use in your day-to-day home business to become an extraordinary success!
