We are always grateful for individuals who are willing to open up their homes to showcase the many wonderful Shelf Reliance products. In order to thank you for hosting a party, we have designed a fantastic Host Benefits Program that rewards hosts with exclusive promotions and programs. We want you to get the most out of your party, so we have included information about the great benefits you can receive.

8 Steps to a Successful Party
1. Set Goals Set a goal for your party sales total, and choose the products you would like to get with your host benefits. Your consultant will do all they can to help you reach your goal!
2. Invite Your Guests Invite as many people as possible to your party. Typically only one quarter of those you invite can attend, so if you want 10 people to attend, you need to invite 40. Don't rule anyone out. You never know who is interested and ready to begin emergency planning.  Shelf Reliance products benefit everyone, so start inviting today!
Also remember, you can send out an e-vite or post card at least one week ahead of time.  Call anyone who hasn't responded within a couple days to make sure they know about the party. Verbal invites or follow-ups tend to get the best results in attendance.
To access your party account which allows you to send emails, go to On the top-right portion of the page, click “Login”. Enter your information under “Create a new account.” Once the consultant has set up a party page with you as the host using the same email you registered with, you will see the link “host home” when you log in. Once you click on that link, you will be able to manage your party on-line.

3. Collect Orders  If someone cannot attend your party, ask them if you could take their order. Your consultant will give you a price sheet and order forms you can forward to anyone that would like to pre-order. They may also lend you a catalog for guests to preview. Remember that most people are really excited about the Q, so be sure to introduce it. 
4. Remind Your Guests Be sure to give reminder calls a day before the party.
5. Set up Your Q Go to the Shelf Reliance website and set up your own Q. Then you will be able to help all of your guests get signed up quickly.
6. Prepare for the Party Review the host prep sheet your consultant will send you. Remember, to ask your consultant questions about the products or program ahead of time.
7. Get Excited Shelf Reliance offers so many beneficial products, so how could you help but get excited? Just remember, you want to pass that excitement on to all your guests.
8. Help Your Consultant Make sure your party goes smoothly by helping the consultant collect orders after the party.
