February 2016 Celebrating January 2016
Hello All Stars!
WOOHOO! January and the Fall/Winter Catalog ended well! Thank you to all who pushed through and partied through the last month of the catalog! Because you did that, you're going to get a paycheck in a couple of days! Love that, right??
And now we are one week into our Spring Summer 2016 Catalog! You all are LOVING it! I can tell by how many parties you have already entered! And the pillows are going over super well! Another exciting thing is that I have about $1000 in volume so far this month and I am EXCITED to say that EVERY single customer has taken advantage of the Customer Special!

Catalog Changeover Tips
What are the first things I need to do?
- GET CATALOGS! If you haven't earned or ordered new catalogs, this is important. It is an investment in your business like no other, really. If you knew someone was a consultant for a company you were interested in ordering from and she did not have a catalog to give to you, what would you think? Your catalog is your storefront. Be open for business!
- "But I can't afford catalogs." If you say that, you should rethink that. You can't afford NOT to have catalogs! Order your catalogs and do your DARNEDEST to get that pack paid back ASAP by getting enough orders to cover it. Did you know the average customer order is $80? ONE average customer order will pay you back. And then you have 24 other catalogs out there to get orders from.
- BUDGET! "But Jennifer, you just said that I can't afford not to get catalogs!" That's right! But are you going to get one, two, or three packs? Think about how many parties you will do this season? I recommend getting enough to last you the first half of the season. You can get more later. It'll only cost you $4 extra to have two separate business supply orders versus overestimating and having WAY too many supplies.
- BUDGET YOUR TIME! Jennifer Pasalakis, our National Executive Director, says "Mail and CALL or do not mail at all!" Mailing or handing out a catalog and not following up is a waste of money. When you give out a catalog, call them within a few days to see what they thought. If you mail out 100 catalogs at a time, it is going to be HARD to call 100 people within a few days. BUDGET your time. Send out 10 and call 10. Send out 10 and call 10 more! It just depends on your time and goals - you get to decide how many. Here is a sheet to help you keep track!
What do I do with my old business supplies?
- Some people want to just recycle the old and start fresh with the new, but what good are those catalogs doing for you at Waste Management? Put a label on them that say, This catalog is OLD, but here's what you DO! Contact me today and I'll show you what's NEW!
This catalog is old but like what you SEE? To get a brand new one just contact ME!
- Leave these around town at your appointments (with their permission) or hand out at vendor events. Sometimes people just take a catalog "to be nice" or to get the heck out of your booth (sad, but true sometimes), so give them one of these!
What do I do with products and prints that have retired??
- If the product is carrying over in a new print, you can keep it in your party kit! If someone loves it and wants THAT pattern, I sell it on the spot and reorder the updated print under the hostess's party!
- If the product has retired, have a sample sale at your catalog kick off party! I did this and sold a lot of retired product, showed and sold new product, and BOOKED PARTIES! I actually booked 6 at this event. You can keep the cash OR you can take that and reinvest into your business buying new products for your party kit. Up to you!
- Use them as booking incentives! Leverage those products by offering them to hostesses who book on your HOT DATES (dates that best work for you) or for parties that are over $600 or $1000 (whatever you want!). I had a Fashion Editor that I got for free ($130 value) and someone booked to get it for free AT her party. I have a $800 party from it so far and I didn't pay anything for it. That's a way better deal for me than just selling it at a discount, right?? LEVERAGE what you have!
- Do not make this a priority - booking and holding parties is a priority. However, if you can go through your Pinterest, Facebook, Instagram, and delete OLD products, old offers, etc, it will really clean up your group/page! A social media expert wrote that it will help your views/impressions go UP! I need to find that source!
- MAKE SURE your group banner/cover is NEW! I have heard of people looking for a consultant and her posts on her group are OLD. What did the potential customer think? That because she last posted in October, that October was the month she went OUT OF BUSINESS! She is still in business! It's like seeing Thanksgiving decorations up in a store. DO they really care?? Are they paying attention?
If you haven't had a Seasonal Kick Off Party yet, now is the time to start planning it. That is the YOU part of the equation. YOU get at least 10 people to your party and then work towards booking at least TWO parties from that party. That is the TWO! Make those three parties at least an average party of $600, and you will have earned $450! What else have you done? If you are following the pattern, you have met 20 new people, you have booked four more parties off of the two. and you probably met someone who wants do join your team! Seriously! Have you asked her yet? Those things are the SUCCESS part of the equation!
Would you like to be in our YOU + TWO = SUCCESS CHALLENGE?
1. Book your Seasonal Launch Party and hostess coach yourself like crazy!
2. Book two more parties from that
3. Keep that pattern going!
4. SHARE your success on our team Facebook Group or with me!
5. WE CELEBRATE TOGETHER!

2016 LeadHership Retreat!
Every year we have a Leader retreat for leaders and up and coming leaders in my SED lineage. This time our National Executive Director is kind enough to offer up her Farm in Tennessee as our retreat location! We will see where it all happens for her!
If you are a Senior Consultant looking to promote to Director, you can get an invitation when you meet certain criteria in your business. Talk to me about this if this is your goal!
If your sales are at least $1000 a month
If you have 3 PEQA - 2 being relatively new
If your team sales are strong
If you consistently recruit new team members
These are some of the things that we will be looking at as we make our list of qualifying Senior Consultants. If you are a Senior Consultant with an interest in this event, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know that you are interested in GROWING into Director THIS YEAR!
It is an amazing event and those who have attended usually grow their business and they for sure make deep connections with their sisters in leadership! It is one of the MANY perks of leadership with Thirty-One Gifts!
If you're new or not a Senior Consultant yet, think about making leadership a goal! There are so many perks to being a leader with Thirty-One and THIS is one of them! I hope you will join me in leadership!
