How to Find Your Next Party Hostess



Leaves are starting to fall, football is officially in full swing, and the holidays are almost upon us! Did you know there are ONLY 63 days left until Christmas!? Yup, that’s right! If you are an Independent Consultant, Director, or NSD, the next few months are going to be your highest selling months of the year. So, are you prepared to capitalize on that?

The heart of your business is, of course, the parties. Whether you decide to host your party online or “in real life,” the critical key to your success is ….. Your hostess!

Finding a Hostess for your Next Party

You might be asking yourself “where can I find my next hostess?” First of all, don’t panic and let’s brainstorm for a moment. Start off by making a list of people you see on a daily basis
  • Co-workers
  • Business contacts
  • Friends
  • Teachers and little league coaches
  • Gym Trainers/Personal Trainers
  • Past Guests and Hostesses
  • Neighbors
  • Hairdressers
  • Family Members
  • Parents of your child's friends
I am confident you can think of a ton more! Sit down with a hot cup of pumpkin spice coffee and start your list!

Ok, so now that you have your list do you have a plan for how to approach the subject? MK has already equipped you with fantastic products and incredible hostess rewards! Encourage more bookings and sales by using these rewards and products as ammunition. 

Changing Your Approach


As you go about your day think about who would appreciate these amazing rewards and products. Change your approach to a giveaway opportunity that will solve their holiday shopping troubles before Thanksgiving. I guarantee that when you change your strategy, your bookings will go through the roof!

Another great way to spur individuals into action is to limit their party date selection. Before you jump to any conclusions, let me explain. Offering a limited number of dates will cause scarcity which motives people to book on the spot to take advantage of the opportunity.

How many times have you been at a store and someone complimented your makeup or MK success rings and you freeze? You either don’t know what to say, or you go overboard talking about all the products MK has to offer but you are unable to close the sale. This happens to so many MK ladies, but what have NSD’s and Directors learned from the experience? Be prepared!

You should always be networking and looking for leads because your trip to the grocery store can lead to your next $2,000 party host or hostess. However, if you are unprepared, the opportunity will slip through your fingers.



Be Prepared!

When you are approached start a casual conversation and mention your business, the essential item samples you have on hand, and give them your business card. Everyone loves free stuff and start off with how they can receive some astonishing rewards. “Hey, you know what, I think I have an opening for a party host this month” or “Here is the latest catalog and I would love to give you some free skin care and makeup products.”

At this point, they should be jumping at the opportunity, and this is when you explain the hostess rewards and what they can earn. You should know the program rewards by heart so you can deliver the message clearly and confidently.

Remember, being a host or hostess is a reward and an opportunity you do not want them to miss out on, but if pressure the individual they will, unfortunately, turn tail and run.
