Why Are You Sabotaging Your Business?

Every day on social media I see Scentsy consultants who are self-sabotaging their business. I don’t know if they’re afraid to succeed or if they genuinely don’t want to succeed.

For the purpose of this post, I am referring success in the sense of Scentsy consultants who say they want to build a business, to lead a team and reach top ranks.

These are also the same consultants who are struggling in their business but say they are trying. They say they’ve done everything they can and yet it’s still not coming together for them. I disagree. Remember there is no try, you either do it or you don’t. If they truly did everything they wouldn’t be struggling.

One person is not solely responsible for what all their team members do or don’t do. One person can’t make any team member sell or recruit if those team members don’t choose to. However, if that one person feels he or she has a team that is mainly comprised of personal or very part time users, then one person can get more team members.

Get More Team Members

Wouldn’t it be nice if it were as easy as going to the store to get more team members?  I’m not suggesting it is easy; but it is simple. With laser focus on sponsoring activities and monthly recruiting goals, one person can build and rebuild the team, regardless of inaction the rest of the existing team may be doing. Continue reading

Stargaze Warmer is Back

Scentsy Stargaze warmer is back and now available to order!

stargaze warmer scentsyAfter the overwhelming success of our January 2017 Warmer of the Month, we decided to include Stargaze in our Spring / Summer 2017 Catalog. However, unprecedented sales of this Warmer kept us from taking orders for Stargaze until we had fulfilled all January orders.

In its first hour, it sold more than most Warmers sell in a year. Preparing for such demand was impossible, but making sure your customers got their hands on this beautiful Warmer as soon as possible was our highest priority.

If you have been patiently waiting to order Stargaze, this spectacular Warmer is now available to order here from www.IncomeWax.com

Keep in mind each Stargaze warmer features a dazzling display of light and color so special, therefore no two are quite alike! When lit, each Star gaze Warmer offers its own unique combination of mesmerizing streaks and bursts that simply must be experienced. Some of these are loaded with color, others are more brilliant with clear, champagne-colored bursts.  These are stunning warmers and it’s important to understand they are all uniquely different in amount of color and light patterns.

Don’t miss this opportunity to order this truly one-of-a-kind Stargaze Warmer.

Selecting a Scentsy Sponsor

Before you join Scentsy you need to select a sponsor; but before you select a sponsor, do your homework and choose wisely.

choosing a scentsy sponsorIt’s interesting to watch the ambulance chasing that occurs on Facebook and elsewhere online when someone says, “I’m thinking about joining Scentsy.”

Under No Obligation

Just because someone messages you first or happens to be someone you contacted first does not mean that you have to join that person’s team. Just because someone emailed and/or snail mailed you some information does not mean you are committed to joining with that person.

Take some time, do your due diligence and find the right sponsor for you.  I would strongly discourage you from looking for the best offer. It won’t take you any time at all to find offers for free this or that if you join this team or that team. I’m sure you can even find someone who will provide a way for you to join her team for free.

What’s Important to You

For the record, it’s against most direct selling company’s policies, Scentsy’s included, as well as the DSA Code of Conduct to offer any enticements to get people to join your team. That includes offer to pay for starter kits, extra products, perks or anything monetarily extra if you join their team. The exact language from the Standards is “Offering incentives to join:  You may not offer, or infer that you are offering, to pay for someone’s Starter Kit or other monetary benefits as an incentive to join your Scentsy Team.” Continue reading

Scentsy is a Personal Preference

Dear Scentsy Consultant: You are doing your business a disservice, and will ultimately hurt it if you promote Scentsy as anything other than a PERSONAL PREFERENCE.

how to use scentsyEveryone’s nose works differently. Everyone’s personal preference is entirely different. Other than the mechanics of our products (correct watt light bulb, water in the diffuser, scent soft in the fabric softener bin of your washer, etc.) you should not be giving ANY specific and quantitative values on how many cubes of wax, how many drops of oils, how many scoops of whiffs, etc.
 
The most important thing you can do for your customers is to inform them how every single person is different and they will find their own preference and have their own experience. It’s not being evasive; it’s being smart, truthful and helpful.

Are You Over-Promising and Under-Delivering?

Consider this – if you think a scent is very strong and only use a half or one cube and tell me that is good to start with, I may not be able to smell a darn thing with that and then I’ll feel duped and that Scentsy doesn’t work.
 
Likewise if you tell me you use 4, 6 or 8 cubes at a time and it lasts a week, so I try it, and it was indeed, “Wow!” strong the first day or so, then I start to become anosmic to it and by day three I couldn’t really smell it anymore, I’ll feel duped and that Scentsy doesn’t work.
 
I would personally never tell anyone to only change it once a week. I want to sell wax and I want my customers to mix it up so that they don’t become too immune to the scent. Others will disagree with me on that, which illustrates my point, there isn’t a way to experience Scentsy, there are many ways.
