It can be tough to start a new business. Decisions, decisions. One such decision is, do you structure your new business on your own, or do you reach out and research companies that supply all the marketing material and products for you. In the Adult Toy Party business (home party category), there are about a dozen companies you can choose from to be your base of operations. After 4 months of extensive research, about a half a dozen come up worthy of being placed on the consideration list. Only 1 of those companies comes out on top. Adult toy store
This article will not extend itself to naming names. It’s purpose is not to be malicious or to bad m outh other companies, that’s just poor business in itself. If you are with a company that practices what I call “Run from It” tactics, you already know that. If you are searching for an adult toy party business company to join – this article should give you a few questions to ask. Their answers will let you know they were in the running.
One of the first things you can do before even making the call is to go to Google and type in [Company Name] Complaints. One of the adult toy party companies that comes up on practically all the search pages for “Adult Toy Parties” (because they have been in business a long time, and spend a lot of money in marketing), came up with 205,000 results from this complaints search. With that – I really don’t have to go any further in my investigation. Not A Chance! Real dildos
Even with extensive research, you can end up choosing the wrong company for you. We did, but realized the mistake quickly (within a month), got out, and started over. The GOOD that came out of our wrong choice was more questions to ask to determine the right choice.

This is one in a series of requirements that lets me know that the company is self-serving. They are in it to make money for themselves and they could give a rats a$$ about whether or not you succeed. How many of us are in this to convert to full time? Sure, it’s always a dream, but in reality we are all just trying to supplement our income, or our spouse’s income. This month the kids may have soccer tournaments every weekend, next month we may be free to do parties all month – that’s what a home business is supposed to afford you – flexibility to make how much, or how little is within your schedule and desire. Don’t rope me into what YOU think I should be doing.
No, You Can NOT Construct Your Own Website.
Self-serving. The bulk of representative websites (the website they give you to market for your business) have corporate information all over it, giving your potential customers multiple avenues to contact the company directly. And, as a professional and multiple award winning web designer I think I have the authority to comment, the bulk of representative website are just plain bad – gaudy – error glittered, and un-optimized. Now, most of the individuals looking into the Adult Toy Party Home Business are NOT web designers – granted, but give them the option. Even a basic hosted Word Press template can become FAR more optimized than the representative sites.
