“Gold parties” are an easy way to do something unique, have fun, and make some extra cash for both you and your friends – and their friends too. Here’s how to go about having one of your very own.
The edited excerpts above and those below are taken from an article* by Brian Kaplan (www.nocogoldanddiamond.com) originally entitled Get Paid to Party which can be read in its entirety HERE.
The Profit Potential
Unlike traditional jewelry parties where friends are invited to spend money on products…gold parties make everyone richer. Guests bring all their old, unwanted, broken and outdated gold, silver and diamonds to the gathering. After everyone is settled, a…professional certified appraiser/buyer performs on-sight appraisals and pays guests for their offerings on the spot…The host or hostess makes up to 10%. What’s not to like?
If a host invites 30 guests from whom the appraiser buys $8,000 worth of gold, silver or diamonds, the host receives $800.00. Value is determined by current gold [and silver] prices and by the purity and weight of the precious metals [and quality and karats of the diamonds. Because [of the gold party approach]…they can pass the savings along to sellers in the form of higher payoffs…
The Set Up
Set a date and then on the day of the party, have the appraiser (they can be found on the internet or in the local yellow pages) arrive before the party, be it at your home, church, community centre or place of business, to help set up and answer any last minute questions you may have before the party begins.
Feel free to:
- send out themed personal invitations,
- decorate the location and
- send out thank you notes for having attended and an offer to assist said attendee in having their own “gold party” for a small set-up fee of your choosing.
Hosts can invite friends, family, neighbors and, unlike most jewelry parties, men will want to attend, too.
It is easy to find guests because everyone has something of value to sell be it:
- gold or silver jewelry,
- gold or silver coins,
- gold or silver nuggets,
- gold or silver bars,
- gold or silver charms,
- dental and scrap gold,
- high-end watches,
- gold wire and solder,
- loose diamonds and other gems,
- sterling silver flatware and
- sterling serving pieces.
Everyone profits from participating in a “gold party”. It’s an easy way to make extra money and to have a good time in the bargain.
