Love To Throw Parites? Make Money As A Party PlannerPosted: October 23, 2014
The holidays are just around the corner and many people will be having parties or attending. If you love plan parties from the guest list to adding the last touch to make your parties extra special, why not get paid for it.
Put your organization skills to work and coordinate an event that will stand out. There are many types of parties: Holiday, Birthday, Baby Showers, Weddings, Office, reunions, anniversaries and the list goes on.
You can start by volunteering to help a friend with a Church group event, school event or even a backyard over the top BBQ. This will give you an idea of how other people plan good or not so good and what you may do differently. Your style will stand out and people attending the party may want you to do one for them. Word of mouth is still one of the best forms of advertising, so be sure to have business cards on hand.
From your choices of themes, food and customer service, you can be known for your expertise. Start with a small group for say a bridal shower, baby shower or birthday. There are many things that are already on hand to choose from for your theme.
The key to success is organization and being able to network with many people for different party’s. This means you will want to bring in florist, caterers, rental companies for chairs, tables etc. If you want to just be the expert for Baby Showers or Weddings you can stay focused on that and still do very well.
Get Your Name Out There
Once you have added a few parties to your resume, (including the ones you volunteered for) get your name out there. Order business cards (VistaPrint.com offers a great deal for first time business cards) then build a website or blog to add to social media sites like Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.
You do not have to have a degree to be a party planner but a few courses in management, money management would be good for the business side.
