  • Jewellery Party - Incentive for booking

    Hi Guys and Gals,

    I am in the very near future going to hold my first jewellery party at home.
    From this mix of people I am hoping for someone or a few people to want to book their own party.
    But my question to all you lovely and helpful crafters is.......
    What incentive do you give to the host of the party?
    i,e is it a percentage of the evenings sales towards their own purchases or is it freebies etc?
    I thought I'd offer them perhaps 10% of the evenings sales. So for example if the the sales totalled £100. The host would receive £10 off their own purchase. But really, in all honestly they may receive a £10 priced bracelet when it has really only cost me say £3.50 to make.
    What are your thoughts on this?

    I do a crafting party plan, and if the party sales hit £150 the hostess gets a free gift and £15 to spend in the catalogue. It goes up from there, and the free gifts are set in levels.

    You could adapt this to suit your jewellery by offering earrings, bracelet, necklace, ring individually or as sets, the bigger the party, the bigger the gift!

    If you want to give an incentive for more bookings, you could do something called 'book to look' Have some small boxes with a printed piece in each saying what the person gets, they get to open a box when they book a party. DO NOT put the gift in, they get the gift when they actually have the party, which is an incentive not to cancel once they have the free gift!

    Good luck with your first party!

      Oh what a good idea!!
      I was worried about people cancelling after they had said they would have a party, but that is a fab idea.
      Thanks for that.

              I've only had one party so far but managed to get another 3 maybe 4 booked from that. I made up a brochure and in that made a cut out coupon that the host has to keep and redeem: For booking they get £10 of free jewellery and then either 10% of the profits in jewellery if £100 or more is spent OR raffle ticket money & I supply 3 prizes for the guests. Plus another £5 worth of jewellery if 20 or more guests turn up.

                I am having my first party on thursday and was wondering what to do with this. Think the tiered gift thing is a really good idea. I was gonna offer the host 10% of sales. Didn't really want to give the host anything before the party in case they cancelled and didn't really want to give them anything just for having the party cause people may not buy anything.

                I am defintley going to look into the tiered gift idea though as this seems like a good idea.

                  I usually ask the hostess what her favourite colour is and make her a necklace as a hostess gift, then after everyone has finished buying she gets 10% of the sales to spend on anything she wants, so far they have all liked thier gifts and discount.

                    It seems that 10% is the going rate and I also like the idea of giving the host a free gift for having the party.
                    Thanks everyone for all of your suggestions.
