July 2013 End of Month + NEW Training Videos

Big image

July is almost over!

July just flew right by and our team is growing everyday!! Remember that our July Hostess Exclusive is expiring at end of the month (7/31/13 midnight EST) and there is a new flyer in the back office featuring our August Hostess Exclusive (found under Resources > Hostess Materials).

Don't miss the latest Hostess Exclusive Announcement that was posted today for any of you who currently have a jewelry bar open in the system.

  • Hostesses will receive the Hostess Exclusive for the month in which the Jewelry Bar® is closed, not necessarily the one in which it was held or opened in your Back Office. To receive the July Hostess Exclusive, you have until 11:59 p.m. Eastern Standard Time on July 31 to close your Jewelry Bar. Hostesses of Jewelry Bars closed after July 31 will receive the August Hostess Exclusive. This will be the case each month going forward.

  • Hostess Rewards are available only for Jewelry Bar orders that are entered into the “Party Tab” in the Back Office. Since The Nest picks up the cost of Hostess Rewards, we are able to offer Hostess Rewards only for orders put through the Back Office. That means that Hostess Rewards are not available for cash and carry sales.

New Training Videos

Now that my kids are back in school I've been working on some training videos for the TEAM. I hope you enjoy them. Please let your mentor or I know if you have any questions. If you have any ideas for training topics please pass them on as well.

This is a place to share tips, photos, successes, announcements, and training!

If you have any questions and/or issues, let's continue to bring those items up to your mentor and/or upline for resolution. (I'm your Executive Team Leader - jodiocken@gmail.com and your Director is Kristine Stevens - charmedowlsleader@gmail.com)

Designer Care is also a resource available for you to utilize. The contact form can be found at http://www.origamiowl.com/contact/form/ or can reach them at 888-491-0331 (M-F 7-7 PST). NOTE: Fastcustomer.com and Lucyphone.com are 2 great timesavers that will stay on hold for you and call you back.

If trying to place an order and the item is not coming up and is not on the Product Availability Listing, you can report this using the Contact Form and selecting Technical from the drop down box. If you need to get the order in right away, you can try contacting Designer Care via phone and asking if they can add that item to your order.

As far as shipping, orders are leaving the nest quickly sometimes even within 24 hours and are arriving based on the timeframe listed on the back of the order form depending on the shipping method selected (if not sooner). Please remember they are listed in business days.

For those awaiting Backordered Items, Missing Items and/or Replacement Items, if it has been 2 weeks since the items became back in stock and/or since you requested the items and you have not received the items then I would contact Designer Care at the phone listed above. If you do not get resolution after speaking with them or for some reason aren't able to call within the specified timeframe, email me the details at jodiocken@gmail.com and I will see what I can find out. Please ensure to include order # and customer name. All forms are found in the back office under Resources > Business Materials.

In addition, I've tried to organize some of the tips and FAQ posted in the group by topic in the Resources Album in Photo section of this group here.
