Brown Bag Party: A WAHM's Guide


The Brown Bag Party company was founded in January 2004 and opened for business in April 2005 in Costa Mesa, California. A brown bag party offers an extensive array of bedroom and romance products while including an opportunity to host home parties to own and operate an individual business. Through a network of independent representatives in the United States, the parties are tastefully presented with a focus on fun and sexual education. Brown Bag Parties also offer individual websites as sales tools and as a way to add to the sales reach.

Starting Out

Review the Business Opportunity page of one of the websites. Review the features of each start up kid. Each start up kit comes with full size products, a training manual, order forms, catalogs, branded items and sample sized testers. Kit prices range from $89 to $795 plus shipping and tax fees and includes the first monthly business management fee of $29.95. Host a party to learn about the products and how to run the business from an independent sales representative.


Brown Bag Party features a 50% commission structure (40% on lingerie) which is more comprehensive than other network marketing opportunities. It is not necessary to purchase a large kit to obtain the discount and there is no recruiting required. The commission structure remains at 50% (40% on lingerie) regardless of sales volume or purchases. There are six levels of team commissions and a matching bonus structure with personal sales bonuses of up to 55%.

Brown Bag Party also offers free hostess rewards which are 100% paid for by the company. The company files state sales taxes and direct to customer shipping.


While hosting your first brown bag party, take notes from the trained romance consultant who will provide everything needed. Take advantage of the free shopping credits offered for hosting a qualified party, which are twice the amount over competitors. Think about customizing the party with a certain theme, at a special time or at a specific date or location, perhaps around a romance related holiday.

Try different sales tactics. Be creative by leading with your products to allow for people to become acquainted with the look and feel of the company without pressure. Find people whom you believe would be interested in your products through online chat forums and other social networking resources. Approach first with products and then offer the business opportunity for the tax benefit and for discounts on the products.
