I was never one for house parties, ya know the ones where women round up their friends and encourage them to buy whatever product they were selling. I was fine with supporting my friends, the problem was I was never interested in the product. Often times they were selling household items that I didn’t need because at that time I was single. True confession: I now really enjoy attending those parties and am even hosting one myself.
What changed? Well for starters, I got married and actually need Tupperware, but the types of house parties have changed too. There are more female-friendly house parties being held and some of our big favorite companies where we shop, shop, shop, have even gotten in on the action.
Here’s a few fun house parties to host or attend:
Aerosoles House Party – What woman doesn’t have an obsession with shoes? This house party practically sells the products for you! The stylish, flexible shoes, known for how comfortable they are can now be found in your house if you choose. To get started, you need to contact your closest Aerosoles store and set up a date and time with the manager. Invite 15 or more of your family and friends to try on your favorite shoes. The Aerosoles representative will bring the styles you request, in the sizes you need. As if playing dress up in your living room isn’t enough of a perk, the hostess will be treated to a free pair of shoes if the total sales from the party are at least $500! Since shoes are your product, that shouldn’t be a problem! What’s in it for your guests? They get 10% of their purchases. Not a bad deal.
