We couldn't be more excited to welcome you!

Stella & Dot was created by bold, joyful women to help all women style their lives as they see fit. Below we will share our top tips for new stylists and help you get started with your new business. We ask that you really put yourself all in and give this little company your best try. You might just find you are onto something really big!

You are officially in business. You are an entrepreneur and while you are in business for yourself you are not by yourself. We work together as a team to help make everyone stronger. As Jessica Herrin shares, "your new stylist investment would not even be enough for a manikin in a cute boutique". You are so much smarter as you just invested in a growing, soon to be billion dollar business. While our press is huge, we are simply tiny compared to the size we will be because of smart stylists just like you and irresistible product.

By now you have signed up as a new stylist, named your website and you likely have a long wish list of must have accessories. Our goal is to help you stay on course and work towards your goals and define your success. Make sure to take a look at the check list to follow and work with your sponsor and upline to help you get started. We are so excited to be your business partners.

Raising a glass and toasting your future success!

I'm Open for Business!

Set up and Displays- You will find some great tips for your accessory display in SDU. Build out your collection as fast as possible and maximize your jumpstart benefits. It's up to you if you want to invest in Stella & Dot Displays and avoid shopping around for others. I do love our displays, but you can find some great other pieces in any craft store, Home Goods, etc. If you have to decide between jewelry or display pieces, pick JEWELRY and use a clean neutral table cloth and our cute boxes and signs to highlight your display. Your best display is her neck.

How many pieces do I need? A successful trunk show can have 7 pieces or 70 pieces. When you have fewer items your excitement and our beautiful look book are your best tools.

Business Cards- Check out the links in Stylist Lounge under Your Business and Marketing. StellaDotPrintShop and Vistaprint have great options. Hot Tip- No need for address field so use that space for other wording such as "Host a Show, Earn Free Accessories!" or "We're Growing! Ask me about the Stylist Opportunity!"

LABEL EVERYTHING with your Personal Website (PWS).

Update your email signatures and social media accounts to show that you are open for business.

Create a "Who Do You Know List" and include everyone. They are all going to fit into your business as a Stylist, Hostess, Client or Referral Partner.

Stella & Dot University- Self teach and master the "Words to Say" while making them your own.

Stylist Guide To Success- Open up this magazine and use it. What a beautiful business plan!

Send out an "I'm OPEN" email to everyone you know. Example-
Feel free to use this for inspiration but make it your own. You want it to sound like your voice not hers and mine:) And I would challenge you to make it shorter:-)

I am so excited to tell you about my new venture with Stella and Dot. <Share a little about why you decided to become a rep> I would be honored to be your "go to" stylist of choice.

The perfect referrals for me are potential stylists/reps in the USA/CAN/UK/GER, trunk show hostesses, personal shopping appointments and referrals to my eBoutique.

As I value your opinion, I would be honored if you would preview my eBoutique and share any feedback. If you love it, would you consider sharing it with your friends and family?

I have to tell you it has been so fun and I am excited to grow my business with this company. The jewelry is simply irresistible and shared through trunk shows which create the ideal social shopping experience. Our press is huge with editor picks in many magazines including INSTYLE, WWD, O Magazine, Lucky and Vogue. The fashion industry is simply floored by our luxury line and great value. That's the benefit of sharing through trunk shows instead of in a retail department store. You will be delighted to find that 50% of the line is under $50 and the other half, we want to share that for free with our very best hostesses. Our designers are recognized as the darlings of the fashion industry and with almost a dozen working together, I get to share with you styles that are perfect for all occasions and we adore sharing great versatility with you. I just know you are going to adore the line as I have.

Let's chat soon! I'll catch you up on how to truly shop smarter and cuter. Doesn't that sound great?

If you are not familiar with Stella & Dot, please take a moment to browse my websitewww.stelladot.com/---.

If you would like a catalog please let me know, I would be happy to drop one in the mail... they are gorgeous!!

I would love your opinion on your favorite pieces!!

Thanks again so much for your support!

JUMPSTART your first 60 DAYS!

Whatever your goal may be, I would always kick it up a notch during your first 60 days in Jumpstart? Why should you do this??

- You'll meet so many new customers that will lead to MORE future trunk shows!

- You'll earn $100's in FREE PRODUCT by doing more!

- You'll make your investment back super quick and you'll start earning profits!

- You'll have a BLAST !!!


Reach out!

Reach out to your prospective hostesses with a VERY PERSONAL message! Let them know why you think they would be a great hostess. Mention a few pieces that you think they would love!

It's been my experience that the more PERSONAL you are the better! Posting a mass message on Facebook that you are looking for hostesses or emailing a mass message, usually does not work. People do not feel obligated to get back to you.

When sending a personal warm email...follow up in a few days by CALLING and letting them know you would LOVE to offer them a fun hour of style!

CHASE the NO! Did you know that for every 10 people you contact, only ONE will book! That's a LOT of no's, right?? Go for it!

Group Hello!

Increase your sales and lead your trunk show with your group hello. I arrive and during set up I let our hostess know that I don't have a formal presentation, no clip boards or sitting for a presentation, but instead we are going to have fun socializing and styling. Our priority will be playing in the jewelry and I'll ask her to be my top model. Let her know that you will share a little "Stella Scoop" so that all know what to expect. This is usually done for a group but may be done with a few at a time. Tell her you will give her a heads up and just need her to help with crowd control for a moment so that you can share. I also like to do a group photo so I'll make sure she is on board. As guests arrive, I act as hostess, answering the door, welcoming them with introductions and asking how they know our hostess. I continue to ask questions about them and walk them in to get a beverage as I am writing their name on the look book and inviting them to style with the jewelry. It is important to let them know that I'll share a Stella Scoop as everyone arrives within the next 30 minutes.
An Awesome Group Hello!
