Top 10 Summer Tips to Help Your Scentsy Business

Scentsy Top 10 ListThis Top 10 List to help your Scentsy business was originally developed by Superstar Director Melissa Gratz. She put it out a few years ago during the holiday season. I liked it so well I just tweaked it a bit (with her permission) to align with Top 10 Summer Tips to Help Your Scentsy Business. The fun graphic was created by Superstar Director Christina Osburn. 

I love collaborating with my peers. We all have the same goal in mind, which is our Scentsy Mission Statement: To bring value to the world by providing an industry-leading, family-friendly business opportunity selling creative, artistic, high-quality products that Warm the Heart, Enliven the Senses, and Inspire the Soul. 

Without further ado – Top 10 Summer Tips to Help Your Scentsy Business:

10. Say these words in your head. Then say them out loud: No limited time only promotion or backordered item is going to break my business, or slow me down. So what if someone needs to make a second choice. Make THE SALE, and wear a smile on my face while doing it. Love what you do – When you do, it shows, it’s contagious, and it makes people WANT to do business with you.

9. Spray every piece of USPS mail you send with a Scentsy Room Spray. While you’re at it, spray the cash in your wallet. You will pay for your items with the best smelling money in town.

8. Start focusing on June’s Scent/Warmer of the Month – Take pre-orders – Summer Sunrise and Summer Sunset are DELICIOUS!  The Lone Star warmer is both patriotic any citizen would be proud to own as well as rustic for Father’s Day. Continue reading

Last Minute Mother’s Day Gift

Mother’s Day is THIS Sunday. If you’re still not sure what to get for your dear mom, consider gifting her a Scentsy Starter Kit. It’s better than scratcher lottery tickets – as her chance of an incredible return on her (your) investment is much greater. You’d be giving her a hobby, a business, a chance to get out with the gals, and a chance to make a difference in the lives of others – just like she did in your life.

Print this gift certificate and give it to your mom for Mother’s Day. Then when she’s ready to enroll, whip out your credit/debit card. It’ll be the best $99 (plus $10 shipping and your local sales tax) you ever spent.

If you need this Scentsy gift certificate in a different file format please contact me.

Does Mother’s Day Bum You Out?

mothers dayEach holiday social media is littered with “Happy This, Happy That” type posts that seem shallow and disingenuous. Right, wrong, or indifferent, that’s my opinion on the matter. However, I do have something other than a superficial greeting that I would like to say on the subject of Mother’s Day.

This post is for the moms who no longer have a living mother.

All too often I’ve heard women say they don’t like Mother’s Day because their own mom is no longer on this earth. With the exception of the very first Mother’s Day you endure without your mom, because that one is a doozy, I would strongly encourage those who share the sadness sentiment to change your attitude about Mother’s Day.

If you’re sad on Mother’s Day I assume that means because you adored your mom immensely and miss her greatly. I get that. I lost my mom to lung cancer before I ever finished high school. That was a long time ago, but rarely a day goes by that I don’t think about her. If your mom was also special to you, that means she was a wonderful person. So answer this: Do you think your mom would want you spending your Mother’s Day being sad? I can answer that, that’s a resounding NO WAY! Continue reading

Professional Pay Isn’t Available If You Look Like a Hobbyist

“If you want to earn professional pay you need to do professional work.” – Orville Thompson, Fmr Direct Selling Association Chairman

direct sales quotesHuman Resources professionals give interview advice to dress for the part you want. The same holds true for your direct sales business as it relates to your marketing collateral.  Your business cards, flyers and brochures would be the equivalent of you dressing for the part you want.

The best way to ensure your new direct selling business never gets off the ground is to create your own marketing material. There are exceptions to every rule and I have seen some very professional looking home made business cards, fliers, brochures, etc. Yet those rare cases are not the norm.  For the most part, homemade marketing collateral screams amateur and hobbyist.

Conversely the marketing materials your direct sales parent company provides are valuable tools available for independent consultants.  Use the professional design and printing to portray an image of professionalism. Poor marketing causes more damage than no marketing at all, so take advantage of the pre-designed marketing material provided by your home office. Continue reading
