We have had quite a bit of interest in a Demonstrator Program (Home Party Plan) and we put an "interest sign up" on our site. We currently have over 50 people now on that list! This would be a great way to market our product, as most people are unaware that this decorating option is available.
My question is, does anyone have any experience with Party Plan software? We are going to start this program soon....just bare bones at first- they will enter a code to get a small discount for their customers and then we will track their sales through the code to do the necessary accounting. However, this is just a short term solution as we learn the needs of our demonstrators. We would like to get a more automated software system in place in early `08. This is not MLM. We will only have them recruit to one level. We would like to be able to have replicated websites available to them also.
We would love some recommendations for software and any advice from someone who has a Party plan business. We have several different marketing strategies, but we believe getting our product demonstrated in peoples home is key to building brand awareness especially as we just start out.
