QUESTIONS YOU MUST ASK WHEN CHOOSING AN ADULT NOVELTY PARTY PLAN COMPANY TO JOIN
Remember, this will be YOUR business. The more you know about it, the better you will be. So I have compiled a list of questions that I feel are "must knows" when choosing your business. I have also answered these questions according to the Party Gal's plan. If you are currently comparing companies, it is a good idea to ask these questions and compare answers to find the best-suited company for you.
How long has this company been in business? How many distributors/consultants do you have? Party Gals was founded in 1994. A top distributor for over a decade with another adult party plan company that went out of business founded Party Gals when she was left with this lucrative business she had built but no company to "work" for. So Future Fun was born and Party Gals quickly became the fastest growing business of this sort. Party Gals is rated number one in the adult novelty party plan companies, still today. Party Gals has almost 7000 distributors in the US and growing every day!
Is there an application fee to become a distributor? No! Unlike other companies, there is no "application fee", just the cost of your kit!
How much are the kits and what is the retail value? 3 kits are available: $250 kit = $500 retail, $500 kit = $1000 retail, $1000 kit = $2500 retail.
Will I ever be charged more than my initial investment for the kit? No, unlike other companies that charge you the full retail price of the kit if you do not qualify, Party Gal's will never charge you more than the listed cost of the kit. Once you order it, the kit is yours.
Do I have to qualify to be a consultant? How do I qualify? What happens if I do not qualify? No, there is no qualification period with Party Gals. Other companies have you at a low profit until you qualify.
How much profit will I make on my sales when I begin? You will start out at 50%!. Then based on our incentive plan you can quickly increase your discount level to even more!
What is the least and the most profit I can make? Are there some items where the profit is less? 40% is the least amount of profit you will make with Party Gals on your sales. Volume is the retail value of all orders you place and all commission through your website. Only shipping and the fee for your website are not included. You can make more than 50% by taking advantage of distributor specials, weekly specials, weekend items on sale and monthly dozen pricing. There is no limit to the amount you can make. You will make additional for your recruits, personal sales volume and for reaching incentives. Some items are now available at a "net” cost. You can decide the retail-selling price.
When and how do I get paid for my sales? Your customers will pay you retail cost for the product they order. You will then place your order for the product they are purchasing and pay wholesale cost. Anything left over from what you collected at the party is your profit! So you are paid at the time of the sale and/or party.
Are there minimum sales requirements? What happens if I do not reach them? There is a very low $50 per month or $150 over 90 days to be considered a "Premiere Distributor". This entitles you to corporate party leads in your area, distributor log in to place orders and a Senior Account Representative to assist you with your business. For certain incentive levels, there may be personal sales levels you need to achieve to receive additional commission checks or credits.
Do I have the freedom to sell products to whomever, and where ever I want? Yes. You can sell product to men, women, companies or even eBay if you want. Sell out of your car, a store, over the Internet, just as long as you are obeying the law.
Do I have the freedom to choose to do Co-Ed or couples parties? Yes. We believe that this type of product is for couples. Therefore, it should be available to both the men and women to purchase the items they like. Ladies only parties are great, but if you have a hostess who wants her husband and her guests husbands to attend her party, you have an option to allow them if you want. Other companies will not allow you to have men at your parties, even if they are gay men. We believe this is YOUR business, and you can choose to do couples parties and co-ed parties in addition to ladies only.
Will the company give me party leads? If so, how do I get them? Yes. If someone calls into the Party Gals office and wants to have a party, the party lead will go to the closest Premiere Distributor. If there is more than one Premiere Distributor in a zip code, the party leads will be given out evenly. Other companies may make you pay for party leads. Party Gals will never do this. My website also occasionally receives nationwide requests and I pass them on to YOU, as part of my downline.
Do I have to give my customer & hostess information to the company when I place my orders? No. You are placing your orders wholesale and they come right to you. You will never need to disclose hostess or customer information to Party Gals. Your customers are YOUR customers.
Are the products that I will be selling for your company guaranteed? What happens if something needs to be replaced because it is defective? If something is defective, just send it back to Party Gals within 30 days of purchase with the appropriate form describing the problem and they will send you a replacement. We also offer a 90 day warranty, just by filling out a warranty card and sending it back to the company.
How often are new products introduced? How often do new catalogs come out? We are always adding new products to our line. Catalogs are updated at least once a year.
Will I pay sales tax on all items I order even inventory or items I will place in my demo kit? No, you are not charged any taxes on your orders. You will charge your customers the state sales tax according to the tax rate in your state.
What do I have to do to be considered an active consultant? You are active as long as you are placing orders; $50 each month or $150 over a 90 day period qualifies you as a Premier Distributor.
What happens if I go inactive? What do I have to do to reactivate myself? Nothing will happen if you go inactive. To "reactivate" you just simply place an order.
Does the company pay the hostess credits? No, Party Gals does not pay hostess credits you will. You may be thinking this is a bad thing. Many people may try to tell you that this will drop your commission rate. It will NOT! The companies who do pay hostess credits only take care of the hostess and you will not make profit from her order. Other companies will require you to disclose customer information and they may also require you to pay retail for the orders and wait for a check to pay your profit from the party. We feel it is a better system to let you take care of the hostess credit. Remember, if a hostess has a $500 party, her hostess credit is only based on her guest’s sales, so the credit will be $50 and your cost is only $25. It will be less than 5% of your profit from the party. It also gives you the freedom to offer more incentives and additional gifts if you want to do that for certain hostesses for holidays or other specials. I typically give my hostess her most expensive item at 10 - 50% off, depending on the sales.
Am I required to recruit new consultants for the company? What do I get if I do? No, you are not required to recruit. If you do get a recruit you will receive a higher discount level and a percent of your recruits sales in either free product or a commission check. Depending on your incentive level, you may get higher percentages and even bonuses.
What other incentives to I get for my sales and my recruits? For every $1000 in retail sales in a month you will always get 5% in free product. Reach the Gold and Platinum Sales Clubs and get a $150 or $350 American Express Gift Card bonus. You can also get bonuses for recruiting, and 5% of your 1st, 2nd and 3rd downlines. You will be able to view the 20098 Incentive Plan for all the extra commissions and incentives you can earn after joining.
Does the company have a web site? Can I have my own domain in the company web site? Yes and yes. And you can choose the name for your site, and the design template.
How much does it cost? Am I paid on my web site sales and how will I be paid? Your basic partygals.biz site costs $14.95 a month. You will get a 30-day trial. Any orders that come in through your site are shipped directly to the customers and Party Gals will send you a check on the 15th of the following month for 40% of the products purchased, or you may opt to use the commission toward an order.
Can I process my own orders online? Yes, it is very easy. You can save, edit and send your orders online and they are shipped to you the next business day.
Can I view my personal sales and my recruits on my web site? Yes, you will be able to view every order you make in your "account activity" on your web site. You can also view and keep track of your recruits and their sales.
If I have a company web site, can I view the traffic on my site? Yes, you will be able to see a list of anyone who has came to your web site to request catalogs, information on becoming a distributor or placed an order. This is beneficial because you can follow up with these people, send specials to them and add them to your client or customer list.
Will I have any advertising restrictions on my web site or my business? No, you may advertise where ever or how ever you want. You can advertise and sell on eBay or a national magazine, it is up to you. When you use the Party Gal logo on your ads, you may want to be it cleared with the home office but there are no restrictions or boundaries on your advertising.
Can I do expos, shows and fair booth type events? Does the company help me to do them? Yes, you can do all of these types of events if you want to. Party Gals will give you up to 25% of your cost (up to $250) in free products, FOUR times a year. Details are in the Incentive Plan.
What are the customer service hours? Who will I call if I have questions or need assistance even if it is after office hours? Party Gals has 24-hour customer service. If you have questions you could ask your recruiter or you can call your customer service rep. There is always a REAL person to speak with when you need to. There is no chain of command like other companies, any leaving voice messages and waiting for a return call. The 24-hour customer service is there to help you to succeed!
Are there weekly or monthly meetings I will need to attend? No, we don't have required meetings. We have regional Meet-N-Greets that are optional and extremely helpful. We have online training demos that you can view at your leisure. We have optional weekly conference calls. And a training manual is online and included in your kit. We also have an online forum where you can ask your sister party gals anything you like. We are here for each other!
Is there a yearly convention? Where is it and how much does it cost? We have our yearly convention, "March Blast", every March in Las Vegas, Nevada. The convention will include your food, hotel room and any transportation you will need once you get into Vegas. You can also earn the trip for free! We also have a "Convention Club" where you can contribute as little as $25 at a time throughout the year to go into your convention account. This makes it easy for you to "save up" for the convention. By the way, they don't call it "March BLAST" for nothing!!
Will I receive personal training from this company to learn this business? You will be given a training manual and a video or DVD in your kit. Watch it as many times as you need to, to gain product knowledge and show techniques. You may also be able to shadow another distributor at a party if you want. You can earn the New Distributors Challenge for a paid training vacation to Las Vegas (which I got!). Or choose to attend our monthly training in Las Vegas. Receive help, advice and ideas from your recruiter and our customer service reps. All the forms, games, sale techniques and aids are available to you on the web site, in your kit and through our motivating women who are there to help women become successful nationwide. You will never be "alone", everything you will need to get started, to become successful and to reach outstanding levels is right at your fingertips any time you need them.
Party Gals works one on one with their distributors to give them the tools and techniques they need. It truly is the most supportive company out there empowering women all over the world.
