Majestics Weekly

Part of the Vintage Treasures Team. Sept 12th 2015

Tis the Season to get BOOKING!

With a bit of focussed effort over the next couple of weeks, we should be able to fill our diaries right up to the end of the year!


This is our busiest season and a busy time of year for most people, so getting organised and finalising dates is vital.


How to seal the deal and nail the date:


You: So, what day of the week works best for you?

Hostess: Wednesday

You: Ok I know you were wanting November, but what we find is that most people have done their Christmas shopping by then, plus as it's a busy month, attendance might be lower than this month or October (check your diary & offer the next TWO available dates) 10th & 17th October...

Hostess: Ok maybe in October then, but I can't do 10th or 17th

You: let's see, ok how about 24th?

Hostess: that should be ok

You: Fantastic! (book it in & discuss invites & start host coaching)


Alright so it's not always as easy as that, but November takes care of itself, it is the easiest month of the year to book, so focus on booking in for September & October (and remember October also has half term too).


Key things to remember are:


1. Only offer two dates at a time

2. Take control of the conversation, acknowledge what they say & justify why bringing it forward is a good idea.

3. On average you need to ask 10 people to get 1 booking! a NO is not personal!


We all know that cancellations and postponements happen, so if you are going for a goal or promotion, make sure you book in extra shows to accommodate this!

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

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.

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

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.

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.

Embrace 2242!

Follow this formula for success...


2 Conversations a day (to book or sponsor) will build your business so that the rest will follow:


2 Conversations per day

2 Outside orders per week (not from a TS)

4 Trunk Shows per month

2 New Stylists Sponsored per month.

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.


Next Hoopla: June or July 2016 tbc
