Hi. I'm just wondering what our average party retail is for both home parties and catalog parties.

Mine seems to be around $350 for a catalog party and $400 for a home show.

Just want to see if I'm really low or not.

Thanks!

I was going to say between $300 - $400, so I think your on track. With people not spending much, I'd be shocked to see a real high party average these days.

John Kiple was at a local leadership training last week that I attended and he said that April's average party on a companywide basis was $512.

He is attributing this to the super bonus buys and the party connect.

Hope this helps.

Me too! I have had very few people take advantage of the super bonus buys. I think asking them to pay $55 and then another close to $20 is alot for some folks right now.

Have you had luck with party connect?

I always add party connect to every show and include the link on the auction party invite. Tonight's show was almost $750 with $75 being from a party connect order that came in just before the show tonight. Never assume what people can afford to spend. I offer the bonus buy or super bonus buy to each guest who qualifies.

I've actually had a lot of people take advantage of the supper bonus buys. It helps that the items they've been using are so nice. Now the extra bonus buys they've had the last few months are a bit much. I feel like a bit too much of my demonstration is talking about bonus buys, but that's just me. lol
