Tips For Successful Home Show Businesses

worldabooks.com       Navigation

Opportunities for home show businesses have never been more abundant. If you’re thinking about joining the ranks of those in the many show businesses at home available, use these quick tips to get going.

The choices for show businesses at home come in a wide variety. You can choose anything from candles to scrapbooking to beauty products to books for your home show business. Truly, there’s something available for every interest and taste, and most all of the companies you do home shows for will provide you with training and instruction on conducting shows for their product(s).

Before you start a home show business, however, you really need to consider if you enjoy presenting and speaking in front of a group. Fear of public speaking is a universal one, but it’s not usually a big deal for most people once they actually start to speak.

However, if you are one of the people who would rather eat nails than stand up in front of a group of people and speak, this is probably not a good career choice for you.

Another thing to think about is whether you’re going to run your home show business full-time or part-time. The more time you put into your business, obviously, the more money you’ll make.

You can, however, start doing home shows part-time and work your way out of your current job. This is the choice most people make when they decide to go into a home show business.

Next, you’ll want to consider whether you’re going to have the shows in your own home or other people’s homes. If you want to have them in your own home, be prepared for your family to be less than 100% supportive. It may be your business, but it’s their home.

It may be that you can work around your family’s schedule to prevent any problems. Choosing to go into other people’s homes may work better for you. Either way, you’ll need to make child care arrangements if you have children.

You’ll also want to make sure that you truly believe in or enjoy the products you’re presenting for sale at your home shows. Many people might tell you that this isn’t really important, but it is.

It is much easier to sell something you’re excited about than it is when you’re not. And if people see that you’re not using or displaying the items that you’re selling, they’re much less likely to buy them. There’s also just the simple fact that whether you’re in the home show business full-time or part-time, it will be a lot more fun if you love what you’re selling.

And show businesses at home are about selling. So if you don’t like the thought of selling or already know that you aren’t a salesperson, you’d be happier in a different business. If you’re a born salesperson, though, the home show business is a great place for you to be.

A home show provides you with a much more intimate environment, and this allows you to establish a rapport with your customers much more quickly than if you’re doing cold calls over the phone. This means you’re likely to sell more items. And that means more money!

Now a few other things you want to think about are:


  • Other than the presentation product package is there anything you need to buy?
  • Is your home set up for a home show business?
  • What will you do about accounting services?
  • Do you have the contacts you need to get started?
  • How will you get the word out about your home show business?
  • What are the zoning regulations in your area concerning business?
  • Do you want a partner?
  • Would a course in public speaking help you?
  • How will your home show business affect your family?
  • What sort of tax planning do you need?
  • What sort of backup plan do you need in case you get sick?


Also, a home show business doesn’t have to just be like the ones already mentioned. You can also consider doing home based business trade shows. These involve allowing businesses to present their goods and services for people to review and even purchase.

They tend to be a lot more involved and require a great deal of planning. There’s excellent money to be made in home based business trade shows, however, and if you’re detail-oriented and like to plan events, then this is an excellent home show business opportunity for you. Again, though, if you plan to do them in your home, you must know the zoning regulations for your area.

As in starting any business, do the necessary research. You also want to write out a business plan that maps out step by step what you need to do to get your home show business going. Follow it, and before you know it, your bank account will be bulging at the seams, thanks to all those fat sales’ commission checks!
