Dream Designers

Updates - January 2013

Big image

BIG Welcome to all our newest Team Members!

So excited to see us grow! We have added 95 team members in the past 30 days and I know there are more coming as soon as tomorrow's invites are out - HOOT!

If you haven't already, please come join us over on the team Facebook Group HERE for daily updates, tips and information. *If you are not on Facebook, please let me or your mentor know so that we can keep you updated.

January Team Incentive

ENTER NOW for your chance to win an O2 Jewelry Bag! Any designer on this team who reaches personal volume of $99+ in the month of January will earn an entry. Please email me at jodiocken@gmail.com when you hit this goal to claim your entry into the drawing.

*To view your Personal Volume, log into the Back Office, click on Commissions, then Volumes, and it will list your Total PV for each month. If you have any questions, please let me know.

January Month-End Cut-off

The cut-off for the month of January is Thursday, January 31st at midnight EST.

{Hoot Loot} Remember you can earn $25 in Hoot Loot for every $250 in Personal Volume achieved for the month. Therefore, if you are close to the next $250 increment, it might make sense to place an additional order of inventory items that you want for your display or a few of your bestsellers to get that $25 credit. This Hoot Loot credit will be added to your account by the 10th of the following month to use on future orders. To view your Personal Volume, log into the Back Office, click on Commissions, then Volumes, and it will list your Total PV for each month. As always feel free to reach out to your mentor or myself with any questions you may have.

{Rank Promotions} There are several of you who have already hit or are close to getting a promotion for January. Your official title change in the back office and any bonus from commissions earned from your team are done on the 10th of the following month. If any of you need further clarification on what is needed, please reach out to your mentor or myself so we can help to ensure you reach your goal.

Revised Terms & Conditions

‎{IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT} Please note that on the News Feed from 1/17/2013 in the Back Office, there is a New Designer Enrollment Form. When you go to the second page of this form there is a revised Terms & Conditions document. So far they have not made any official announcements or anything, but wanted to make you aware.

I want to point out the one change I noticed is under #7.
"Failure to make wholesale purchases totaling at least $199.00 once every six months will result in the automatic termination of Designer position with O2."

This used to read "ANY" order every six months. I am unsure when this will take effect or if it already has and I don't have any other information about it, so if you have any questions, I suggest you email designercare@origamiowl.com at this time until we hear anything more.

Click here to view the document where it can be found.

*I don't want anyone to stress over this, but wanted to bring it to everyone's attention. $199 every six months breaks down to $33 in wholesale purchases every month, which is essentially selling one locket a month. Also, as of now they have not inactivated any designer who hasn't met the requirements (even when it was on ANY order).
