Would love to hear anyone's experience working in party plan. Any company.
I'm looking at maybe heading into party plan world to earn some extra income. I study 3 days a week (including 2 nights) so would only be available to do 1-2 demos a week. this wouldn't be a big income, just an extra bit to help pay bills or to put away for christmas.
I'm particularly interested in thermomix (as i want one but can't afford it!) but unsure if I can make much money off one demo a week as I imagine the sell rate isn't quite one per demo.

Party plan type jobs

I'd recommend saving up for a Thermomix if you really want one. I personally don't think they are worth the money they are. Having a party plan that relies on someone spending $2000 is set for disaster unless you have lots of rich friends to be honest. Expecting a sale of $2000/week is not going to work I don't think.
I'd go for something that has varied products with varied prices that will appeal to a lot more people. You might not make so much money in one go, but some money is better than none.
One party plan party I've been to and I like is http://www.linenparties.com/public/ - it's great for pre-wedding parties, parents of young children, or older women. And who doesn't like nice linen?
Remember though that party plan means parties in the evenings and weekends which can get frustrating with young children, but if you have a partner who can look after the child(ren) at those times then it's great.

I am an Intimo consultant. I'm not currently doing parties as I just don't have the time (or energy!). I am studying, a sahm to a 2yr old and 31 weeks pregnant. But that is what initially attracted me to Intimo, it is so flexible! I've been a part of Intimo for almost 2 years and it really is an amazing company. To really understand the intimo world you need to be a part of it!
I was doing 2-4 parties a week and bringing in almost a full time wage. A standard party takes 2-3 hours so it's part time hours for a full time wage. HEAPS of bonuses/incentives/freebies available through the company, great support from other consultants, no pressure to sell or hit targets.
If you have any questions feel free to pm me

I did intimo for a while and loved it, but couldn't do it justice on top of part time work/ study / toddler so recently stopped. I loved the product though and the showcases every three months are just the best things ever! Lots of rewards to be had if you put in the hard yards, and I have never worked with a company before that is that genuinely interested in helping everyone . I would recommend it!
