Hoopla?

Our Annual Conference is only a few months away, Hoopla is a weekend of learning, fun and inspiration. Stylists who attend Hoopla are 7 times more successful than those that don't. See the Stylist Lounge for more info. Tickets are £159 and include £200 in product, training, refreshments and lunches as well as drinks tokens for the Saturday night Hoopla party. Not to mention the giveaways (see Tori May pictured, who won an entire collection just for attending!)


Looking for a roommate? post on Facebook! There is a lot of alternative accommodation within walking distance of the hotel if you are trying to keep costs down.

We will be having our Team Party on Friday night!! Suggestions welcome x

Hoopla 2012 Highlights

Are you warming up 2 people a day?

Platinum Director Carla Greengrass shared her top tip of warming up two people everyday, so that everyday you also have 2 people to follow up with from the previous day.


Warm up by sending an email/text/fb message or sending them a mini look book, then follow up with a call within 48hrs. Words to say are in the lounge/attached to the Buzz, use them as a guide and find words you feel comfortable using. If appropriate, offer the business opportunity first, then offer a Trunk Show, women hate to say no twice!

Update on Stock & Inventory from S&D

As of Friday 20th March, we have approx 500 active Styles, of which, 98% are IN STOCK and AVAILABLE. This is significantly higher than most top retailers.

Whilst 98% is in stock, we do realise that 2% is OOS, and that items included within that 2% include popular and new collection pieces.


What we're doing about it:


  • Our Inventory Planning team are working hard with our vendors to ensure that re-orders are received in our warehouse as soon as possible. Please check the Product Alert on Stylist Lounge for expected Back in Stock dates


  • On the Product Alert, our merchandising team have shared their 'Recommended Replacement' for each OOS piece


  • For new Stylists, we've made sure that the Recommended Lists feature a broad range of styles, all of which are in stock


  • For any new Stylists who have sampled pieces that are OOS for a long period, our Delight Team will be happy to help process an exchange for a different item instead. We'll always try to make things right.


Finally, some good news – some items arrived at our warehouse faster than expected and are available to order now, check the product alert list on the lounge!


Michele's Advice:

If a customer wants an out of stock item, offer fantastic customer service by filling out an order form and treat it like a pre-order. Process it for her as soon as the item becomes available again. It's a great feeling when you do this and an item becomes available, all of a sudden you have sales, a happy customer and commission!

Hoopla Theme 2015: Shine Bright...

Welcome to Stella & Dot!

I am your upline Director, I support your sponsors, hold regular training and meetings and am here to support you, so that you get what YOU want out of your Stella & Dot Business. The person who sponsored you should be your first point of contact with everyday queries. However you can reach out to me if you have any issues or suggestions or require assistance that your sponsor is unable to give.


About Me:

I am a mum of three school age children, this is my second business in this industry, I joined S&D when we launched in the UK in 2012 when my previous jewellery company closed down, I have been in the biz for about 6 years. When I first started I had babies, toddlers and another job, and to be honest, I joined to get discount on my wishlist! however after my first party, I knew that this was what I wanted to do, so I made a plan with my sponsor and quit my job within 6 months and have never looked back. I still work part-time and do about 6 parties a month.


I live in Surrey, I'm married to the very patient Mr P and I survive on black coffee and gin.


I look forward to meeting you soon!


Michele

XOXO

DIrector & Independent Stylist

Here are the Resources available to you:

Connect with your Sponsor

The person who introduced you to the business is called your Sponsor. She will be responsible for your initial Q&A and getting you started.


It's important to be honest with your sponsor about what you want from your business so that she can offer the right level of support.


During your Jumpstart period (your first 60 days) we recommend having a quick chat once a week with your sponsor.

Attend a Monthly Meeting (every month!)

Stylists who regularly attend a monthly meeting have much stronger businesses and are more likely to have longevity. Without connecting with other Stylists doing the same job, it's very hard to get motivated and inspired. Also, it's more fun together!


See Forthcoming Events above, if we aren't holding one in your area, there are many other Directors and Leader-led meetings all over the country. Search under events in the Tools & Resources/Stella & Dot University part of the Stylist Lounge or website to find yours.


If there isn't one, then tell me!! I am working with Head Office to get the nation covered.

Monday Masterclass Training Calls

Most Mondays 8.30pm (see events above) dial in from wherever you are, we cover a new topic each week for 4 weeks, perfect for new Stylists or those wishing to re-engage.

Not on Facebook? You're missing out!

We have a Team Facebook page for Majestics, it's a closed private group just for us.

I use this Facebook page to do give-aways and share important information as it happens. it is also a useful forum for you to ask questions and share tips.


Even if you don't want to use Facebook for your personal life, you really need to use it for communication purposes within the team and wider Stella & Dot community.


Add me as a friend and I'll add you to the group: www.facebook.com/michele.porter1

Making the Most of Jumpstart

A bit of sisterly advice to you all. If there's one thing you'll kick yourself for not doing, it's making the most of your JumpStart (first 60 days).


Familiarise yourself with what you could be earning in this period and chat to your sponsor about it.

Read & Watch The Weekly BUZZ

The Buzz is the weekly newsletter from Head Office, it's how announcements are made, it's short and fun but has links to all the tools that you need to run your business right now.


It's a 5 minute video, once a week. Just watch it!

Stella & Dot University

This is an online learning resource, basically a library of documents and videos to help you self-educate your way to success. I know at first it seems really daunting. Start with the New Stylist section first!


Spend a good few hours in your first week watching videos and familiarising yourself with SDU.

Getting Started Guide

This is a fab booklet available in the Business Supplies section of our shop on the Stylist Lounge. You can buy it, or you can download a copy for free from SDU.

Head Office Training Calendar

There is a weekly New Stylist Training call you can dial into with Sam Walpole, our UK Training Manager.


Find this on the Stylist Lounge, it not only shows what training and support is taking place, but also has recorded archives of training calls. I download these as mp3's and listen to them on my phone or ipod in the car or around the house.

The Stylist Lounge

You should get in the habit of logging on every day during your first few weeks, to get used to where everything is.


News items in particular, as well as the Product Alert list which is updated daily and shows any items low or out of stock and when they are due back in.

Hoopla!

Hoopla is our Annual 2 day Conference, it is in June, in London.

If you want be successful and earn more money from your business, you need to go to Hoopla.


We have the best, game-changing training, not to mention cocktail parties, team parties prizes, dancing and FUN!

CEO & Founder Jessica Herrin, Chairman Mike Lohner, Chief Creative Officer (heads up Design Studio in NYC) Blythe Harris and VP of Global Training Danielle Redner will be there, they are each so inspiring and motivating, but when they get together, great things happen!


Tickets will go on sale a few months beforehand.

Tickets usually cost about £150 and include products to the same value in our goody bag. S&D negotiate a good hotel rate for us and Stylists usually share rooms to keep the cost down too.


Put the date in your diary now! 26-28th June 2015.
