This 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). The fun graphic was created by Superstar Director Christina Osburn.
Top 10 Summer Tips to Help Your Scentsy Business:
10. Make THE SALE, and wear a smile on your 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. Say these words in your head. Then say them out loud: “No Limited Time Only promotion or back ordered item is going to break my business, or slow me down. So what if someone needs to make a second choice?”
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 next month’s Scent/Warmer of the Month
Take pre-orders. Just remember you’re only gauging interest. As per our Standards, you can’t collect any money with pre-orders unless you’ll be able to submit the order to Scentsy within five (5) days of receiving the money or credit card. Place your orders in July and you’ll have them in time for sending your favorite college kiddo off to school. Find the upcoming S/WOTM promotions in your workstation.
7. Don’t make assumptions about who needs more Scentsy or who may want to join or host:
Don’t assume people know you have your own business, don’t assume that people have enough, don’t assume everyone knows what it is – DON’T ASSUME!
6. Carry your testers with you EVERYWHERE.
Keep a cooler, or thermal pack with an ice pack in your vehicle if you have to so that they don’t melt in the warm car.
5. Make sure your car is loaded with catalogs, biz cards, & samples/testers.
You just never know who will see your Scentsy t-shirt, car vinyl, or smell you when you walk by wearing your favorite Scentsy Body products (or you sprayed your hair with aromatic room spray…just be sure to spray your locks, not your scalp unless you want to look like you haven’t shampooed in a bit).
4. Check the News Tab of your workstation DAILY!
This is where you’ll find an updated list of back-ordered items and special seasonal promotions.
3. Everyone in your life should be getting Scentsy
Or more for the birthdays, graduations, thank you or Just Because gifts. Give a gift that you make commission on – and promote your business at the same time!
2. Put Your Order In Now
If you are thinking about ordering it, or have been meaning to order it, or it’s a Limited Time Only (LTO) promotion, ORDER IT! If you’re waiting on a customer who is waiting on payday, you may want to get your order in, and advise the customer to order online when her funds are available, otherwise you could miss out.
1. HAVE FUN.
Be joyful. Smile. Laugh. Make people wonder what makes you so happy. Be grateful. And don’t forget to breathe because one day, you will be out of breaths.
Stay safe, don’t forget sunscreen and I’ll see you at the top!

Doxie, doxy, dashound, weiner dog, weener dog, wiener dog, weenie, or any other way you say or spell the German canine – I’m talking about the adorable, small, long dog.
Scentsy’s new on trend doggie decor, the dachshund dog wickless candle warmer is waiting for a forever home.
It is an element warmer, which means no light bulb to warm the wax. Instead it uses a safe, heating element.
The finish on this puppy is a white crackle glaze, and this pup longs to be adopted.
Take this doggie home today. Order here.
Frenchie the French bulldog shown above is also available for adoption.
Love Scentsy, But Would Rather Not Pay Retail and Don’t Want to Host a Party?
When I joined Scentsy in 2006, I told my sponsor, “I’m not building a business, and I’m not holding any parties. I just want to buy for myself. I will be consuming a lot of it, so I don’t want to pay retail.”
That was “my why” – the reason I joined. Fast forward 12 years, I am a top-ranked Scentsy consultant, still loving the products, and I have built an international Scentsy business with fellow team members around the globe. But that was definitely not initially the desire.
Consultants Get 25 Percent Off
Technically, it’s not a 25 percent discount, it’s a 25 percent rebate. As consultants, the prices you see in the catalog or on the website are what we pay. The difference is that once a month we get paid commissions on sales made to customers and to ourselves over the previous month. The end result whether you call it a discount or a rebate is the same.
More Than 25 Percent
We can be the both consultant, and earn commissions, plus we can also be the host, and earn host rewards of free product, 50% off and free shipping in the US contiguous 48. That equals more than 25 percent discount, 25 percent off or 25 percent rebate.
There are additional percentages available to earn even more of a discount or rebate but right now I’m mainly talking about those who join for personal use.
Shop From Yourself
Holidays are coming up. There are always birthdays, thank yous and other gifts someone needs. Scentsy has something for everyone – from babies to great grandparents, for guys and for gals. If you’re going to be spending money wouldn’t you rather pay it to your own business and get a percentage of it back?
What Do You Have to Lose? Nothing.
In the United States, the starter kit is $99, plus $10 shipping, plus your local tax – so roughly $116 (+/-) depending on the tax. In your starter kit you will receive products and business supplies valued at more than (almost 3x more) your start up investment. The Starter Kit includes everything you need to start your Scentsy business: a best-selling Warmer, more than 80 scented wax testers, catalogs, order forms, three months of your own personal Scentsy webstore, product samples and more. (Contents may vary.)
Look at worst case scenario – you decide to try it, get some holiday shopping done for yourself, get at least 25% paid back to you, maybe even sell a little to friends, coworkers, and family, and then after a few months you decide to move on. You still have a new Scentsy candle warmer, scent testers for every scent we have and other products to use for yourself. You can melt the scent testers for your personal use. And that’s the worst case. Best case, is 12 years later you’re still here and loving it!
Here’s Your Nudge
Need a little encouragement or nudge to help you decide? Here’s your nudge, and here’s the link you need to join Scentsy and start getting at least 25 percent off (rebated back.)
I’ll see you on the inside!
If you’re a Scentsy consultant who thinks asking people if they’re ready for more Scentsy is bothering them, then this post is for you.
How many times have you sat at a restaurant wondering where the server was because you wanted a refill on your beverage, or needed ketchup?
You probably looked all over trying to find her, or at least catch her attention as she came near your table, but never stopped long enough to see if she could get you something. Irritating, isn’t it?
Yet on a daily basis Scentsy consultants will not “stop by the table” of their customers to see if they are ready for more. Why? Because most feel that they are bothering their customers if they ask them how they are enjoying what they ordered and if they are ready for more.
Helping Someone Is Not Bothering Them
It doesn’t matter if you’re checking to see if they need more water, coffee, ketchup, or Scentsy. You’re helping them with what they may or may not know they need. It’s being proactive so they don’t have to spend their time trying to find you or catch your eye.
Say it one more time: Helping Someone Is Not Bothering Them. That is what customer service is all about.
Now go help someone today.
