As a party plan company you can host many different types of Scentsy parties. The traditional home party can be either an open house or a presentation party. An open house is a relaxed atmosphere where customers can come at their leisure, usually within a two hour time frame. Once they arrive they are able to view a Scentsy display table, smell all the yummy scent samples, and place their orders. Another type of party is the presentation party where all the guests arrive at the same time and listen to a 20 minute presentation given by the Scentsy Consultant. During the presentation, the consultant shows all the different Scentsy products and shows how to use the Scentsy candle warmer. Once the presentation is finished the guests then smell the scents and order. Another great way to have a party is a basket party. A basket party can also be called a book party, as the hostess takes the scent samples, catalogs and information from the Scentsy consultant and has a party on her own. She may take it to work with her, show it at a baby shower, or show it to all her friends and family. This type of party is very low key and is done at the hostess’s leisure. With any of these parties the hostess is always thrilled because she will earn free and half price Scentsy by reaching just $150 or more in sales.
Besides doing home and basket parties there are many other ways to sell and market Scentsy. A consultant can sell at fairs and shows. At a fair or show the consultant is able to have stock on hand and sell it as “cash and carry”. Fairs and shows can be a great way to get your name out there in the area and get recruits, party bookings and new customers. A requirement Scentsy has with fairs and shows is that there can only be one consultant per event. This gives the best opportunity for the person that secures the booth first.
Another way to sell Scentsy is through fundraisers. As an independent consultant you can go to any business, charity, school, etc and set up a fundraiser. Fundraisers can be a great way to market your business and build a customer base, get party bookings, and recruits. Fundraisers are great because you are able to support a cause you believe in and help a group that needs it. Scentsy has wonderful fundraiser tools to help consultants have a very professional and successful fundraiser.
One more way I would like to discuss marketing Scentsy is selling directly to businesses for their personal use. Doctor offices, dentist offices, insurance agencies, etc., all want their office space to smell nice but they need something safe. With our electric candle warmers you can give these businesses something they are looking for. Since our flameless candles use only a light bulb, offices love to use them in their waiting rooms, break rooms, or anywhere they want a nice scent in the air.
As you can see, there are numerous ways to sell Scentsy products. Candles have been popular for years but our product offers something that is safe, decorative, and smells wonderful. With over 50 candle warmers and 80 scents to choose from, we can find something for even the pickiest consumer. To find out more about Scentsy visit my website www.scents2buy.com
