May Recap

Prepping for Summer!

Winding down

I thought it'd be best to recap end of the month and jump into June with the many issues that arose the past month for the Mother's Day orders. As we finish up with the settling dust it is a great reminder that the Back Office is the place to be. The Nest has done a very nice job with improving communications, sometimes on daily basis and all of those feeds are available for us via our Back Office. Try to make a habit of checking it at least once daily. It takes 21 days to form a new habit, so by the end of the month ya'll will be Pros!


One of the most important feeds that have come through is on the backordered items. If at this time, the new product you ordered mid April has not yet been received and those items have been back in stock, the Nest is asking we please send in a Missing Items form (located in Back Office/Business Material) and fax, email back to them ASAP. Please make sure you follow the directions on the form, it is important when communicating back to the Nest to follow directions and provide as much info as possible that way it eliminates the amount of conversation going back and forth.


Missing items form: https://d9b54x484lq62.cloudfront.net/origamiowl/personal/resources/missing_item_form_05242013.pdf


What I do is lay it all out, item #, description, reason, etc that way I know I have covered my end and it shouldn't leave any doubt or question to the topic at hand. By doing this, you get your items faster!

MOVING ON TO THE COUNTDOWN FOR CONFERENCE!!!!!

Nest doing Conference Giveaways!

WHooo's going to be joining me at Conference in July? I am so absolutely excited about heading back to Phoenix this summer, heat and all! Prepping for the trip, getting ready to see some sister owls, its like a big ol' reunion filled with some AWESOME extras! O2 is not shy by any means when it comes to SWAG at events and from what I hear, this is going to top them all! There will also be an onsite store, unclear yet as to what all they will have but definitely bring some spending money on that!


If you checked the latest feed and going to Conference, the Nest is also going to participate in doing giveaways, check it our for your chance to win!

I have a couple extra rooms at the Sheraton Downtown $99/night booked Friday-Sunday. If you need a room or a roommate, please email me to assign you one. I will be letting these go next Monday if I do not have people to occupy them.


There is a facebook group for those attending Conference to get info for Phoenix and time of convention. If you are needing a ticket to convention, this is the place to look as well:

Getting dressed this summer?

I have wanted to do my team shirt for awhile now and wanted to take the opportunity to get one together. I LOVE this saying and wanted it for my team. If you are headed to conference, buying 2 shirts can be pricey so I would suggest to wear the Team SWIFT shirt. This one was made for us but at Conference I represent under my director which Is Michele.

The cost of the Sparkle and Shine shirt is $30 and you can order below:

The Team Swift shirt for Conference: http://www.kaydoncreek.com/products/1558582-team-swift


Now, even if you cannot make it to conference I would love for you to buy the team shirt to wear to events, jewelry bars, wherever to represent your business. It's a great marketing tactic and people will say how cute! My response being wait til you see how cute MY locket is, open the door for a sale!


This leads me to June Incentive: May was a harder month with some obstacles and are sales were good but we can make them GREAT this month! We ended May at $38,554.66, that was HALF of what we did in April. So let's see if we can rev it up, so we can set aside some profit for the summer months to go play with our families and friends!


For June I would love to give away (2) Team Sparkle and Shine shirts! Every active designer qualifies to win!


For the first half of the month:

The designer who has at least 1 active team member or 1 DIW (must provide name and DIW must be in Future OO Swiftees group) and has $250 PV.
