Confused about what you can and can’t do with marketing your Scentsy business?
Let me be clear, I am not the compliance department, and I am not the one who should be making final decisions or interpretations on your behavior.
That said, I used to be a federal compliance officer, I enjoy policies and procedures (I know, right?) and I have a pretty good handle on the ins and outs of all things Scentsy, since I’ve been around 10 years. I actually read them word for word and question anything I think contradicts itself.
Because of that lovely reputation I’ve acquired over the decade, I often have people privately send me posts to get my take on it – for the purpose of doing it themselves, or not doing it and possibly reporting it to the powers that be.
I cannot stress enough, if you take just ONE thing away from this post, it’s this:
Do not use what others are posting online as your example if you can post it too.
Every single day I see posts that are OOC (out of compliance). I suspect a majority of them are simply mimicking what they see others do. Some may be disregarding our Consultant standards that we all agreed to and others simply didn’t bother to read them.
Test everything. Look in your workstation, use the Search function to easily find the contents of the Scentsy Standards. When in doubt, ask compliance – that’s why we have a compliance department.
That’s a load of crap
In an attempt to preempt the nasty-grams that I can smell headed my way about “Scentsy policies being too strict” – to that I say HOGWASH! Scentsy policies are extremely liberal. There are far, far more things that we can do, than we can’t. And those actions that are prohibited, are for our protection.
Independent Consultants are given a lot of leeway how we run our business. But it’s not a free-for-all. We need to protect the integrity of the company, so we all have a company to represent for years to come.
If you think they’re too strict, then I think you have not read or understand all the freedoms we do have.
I’ll close with this: Do not use what others are posting online as your example if you can post it too.
