MyShowcase Team Summer Update

.......time to get back to work!


I hope you've all had a lovely, maybe even restful summer, and are looking forward to getting back to work at what is our busiest (and most profitable) time of year. I know I am!

Team news

Let's kick off this newsletter with a promotion achieved over the Summer:

Congratulations to Sarah Olson based in Wilmington, Kent, who has promoted to Star Stylist. Well done Sarah!

We have 4 new team members: Soraya Tennant-Hosein (sponsor Angela Downing), and Rachel Maile, Jane McQuitty and Silvia Hope-Mason who are in my first line. A very warm welcome to all - I look forward to working with you as you grow your businesses.

A Review of Showtime!

Where do we start? The 2nd MyShowcase Showtime! on September 12th was as fabulous as we had been expecting - pure #beautygold. Over 100 Stylists enjoyed a Q&A session with our skincare brands, a great make-up demonstration from T. Leclerc and a Marketplace where we could chat to the brands and ask a myriad of questions. Of course the highlight was the big reveal - three great new brands which I'm sure will sell well. See links below to Emma Lomax, Kure Bazaar and MDMflow. There are new products from many of our existing brands, so have a look through the new beauty book and decide what you'd like to order for your kit. Sam led a session on how we can maximise business at this time of year - see further details in 'top tip' below. We all went home with gift bags containing over £250 of products for our kits - a lovely treat!

This month's top tip - Maximise all income opportunities!

Q4 is traditionally when over 70% of beauty revenue is generated and therefore we want to be well placed to maximise our earnings opportunities at this time of year. Make sure you have identified any Christmas Fairs etc where you would like a presence and have reserved your table. Bookings for the best events are made a long way in advance.

As well as regular Showcases and Shake-ups, think of the variety of ways you can increase your client base and generate more income. For example:

  • Corporate Gifting - Approach local businesses and offer a personal service, providing gift selections for their clients or employees in various price ranges (for men and women) and remind them we can arrange for gift wrapping and delivery.
  • Christmas Shopping - Offer this service to customers - you can help them select presents for different people on their list and, if they choose, arrange for orders to be gift wrapped and sent direct to the lucky recipient!
  • Bring MyShowcase to the workplace - Especially at this time of year, some businesses like to invite companies in to provide a shopping opportunity for staff. Remind them that we can also arrange this as a charity showcase, with 10% going to their nominated company charity.

    Team Meeting

    We will be holding a team meeting on Wednesday 7th October from 10am-11:30am at TasteBud Café, 39 Chatterton Road, Bromley BR2 9QW. It will involve cake! All welcome. Please let me know if you are coming or if you would like to Skype in. (Although that may prove to be a technical challenge too far for me - time will tell!)

    MyShowcase Genie

    I've saved the best until last....

    Here it is - the app that is going to transform the way you work!

    MyShowcase Genie is jam packed full of useful videos - everything from how to set up a showcase online to how to manage rosacea. It's a fantastic resource for both new stylists and those who been in since launch -it's like having Kate and Nancy in your pocket! If you haven't already, I urge you to download and start exploring. The app is available in the Android Play Store and should (if it's not already) be available from Apple App Store very soon.

    I hope you enjoy the start of this busy pre-Christmas season and I'll send another update at the beginning of October. As I always say, if you have a Facebook account, but you're not on the Team Facebook page, please join so you can interact with other team members and keep up to date with the news. If you have problems, or if you would like to chat about anything and everything, please get in touch - my contact details are below.

    Love Michèle x
