Scentsy Basket Party: Method of collecting Scentsy orders; generally consisting of a host, catalogs and scent samples presented as an alternative to home parties.
Taken directly from the Scentsy consultant websites: “Scentsy Basket Party: If your guests can’t make it to your party, bring the party to them! While it may not offer the full social experience of a home party, the Scentsy basket party is the perfect alternative for guests-on-the-go. I will provide you with a beautiful display basket full of Scentsy product samples, order forms, and all the information you need. You’ll have 10-14 days to share it with as many people you can at as many locations you like. Then you’ll return the basket””and completed order forms””to me to be processed.”
The most important thing to keep in mind about a Scentsy Basket Party (BP) is that there is no one way to conduct one. There are so many options in how you choose put a BP together. The options are limitless. Below are some choices to consider:
What to use as scent samples?
Some consultants choose to use the party testers that were included in the Starter Kit. Other Scentsy consultants purchase the optional Mini-testers that are available under Business Supplies. Still others opt to make their own samples. There are pros and cons to each type of scent sample.
Party Testers: Starting in January 2011 the starter kits now include “slim testers” which are less cumbersome than the original ones. Pro – No extra expense needed as you already have them. Con – Size and space may still be a factor; the need to get them returned to you in good condition; many hands and noses on them could present a germ factor.
Optional Mini-testers: These are tiny miniatures of the party testers. You may purchase these as an entire set or in sleeves of five of all the same scent. Pro – They’re small and don’t take up much room; inexpensive to purchase. Con – Because they’re so tiny, some consultants don’t believe they hold the same amount of scent or that the scent doesn’t last as long; while relatively economical to purchase, it’s still an added expense and because it is a business supply they do not count toward volume nor pay commission; the need to get them returned to you in good condition; many hands and noses on them could present a germ factor.
