Default Do you have to have a party in a party plan?

I used to think that you HAD to have parties if you were part of a "party plan" direct sales company. Now I know you can build a business however you want- parties, online, one-on-ones, mailing samples, vendor events, etc. I still think parties offer the biggest bang for your buck but what do all of you party plan people think?

I agree that parties are the best way to work a party plan business. That said, I have been with Scentsy, starting my 9th year, and I have yet to have any parties. My personal circumstance is such that working my business online is the only option for me.

I live in a very rural area, so having a party is difficult for me as people don't want to drive up to an hour to get to my home (or if I'm driving to theirs)!! That takes a much bigger chunk of my time too. It would be easier if I lived in a city or suburban area....

I also feel it's more difficult to do a party plan if you have a product that people need to smell, sample or taste. And if you don't do parties, then you have to get really good at internet marketing or doing shows (which means I'm driving again, which in NY is costly because of our high gas prices).

A jewelry product (or similar type of item) would probably be the easiest as that's a pretty straight-forward product - if you see it and like it, you buy it! ;-)

Just my two cents!
