Thirty One Business

All the Perks and More

The summer is quickly approaching…. are you looking for some extra money?  Would you love a break from the kids for some girl time?  Do you just LOVE a great deal?

Yes, you are reading it correctly!  Till May 31st, you can join Thirty One for just $49 (no tax).  SAY WHAT????

Wouldn’t you LOVE to be a part of the excitement as we kick off a Summer Season with Thirty One?

Let me show you all the things going on right now at Thirty One and why NOW is the best time to join! The Summer Seasonal Guide is AWESOME!  Fun new prints and products for everyone in the family.  PLUS you will be able to grab some of the Retiring Products from our Spring Collection.  Your NEW Customers will love all of the different solution sets to get ready for Summer.

So, for the $49, you will receive:  a Welcome Packet, a How-To Guide, one Summer Guide and one Spring/Summer Catalog, plus a $131 Gift Certificate!

Are you wondering what you can use your gift certificate on?  ANYTHING to help you jumpstart your business.  OPTION #1: You can use it in your launch party (I will be there to help you every step of the way) so you can start earning Personal Volume (PV), Hostess Rewards and commissions, counting toward earning AllMyPerks (AMP) incentives and rewards.  OPTION #2: You can place an order in Marketplace and get the 40% discount off all products ordered.  You will earn Personal Volume toward the AMP incentive. OPTION #3: You can use it to buy Business Supplies and/or a mix of product.  OPTION #4:  You can simply use the Gift Certificate as a payment type on your order. You will earn commission of $32 on your order.

What is an AMP Reward?  So you will be able to pick one of these AMP products for 60% by just using your gift certificate by the end of the month.  If you collect additional orders, up to $1,000 in the month, YOU will get MORE perks!

When you reach $1000 in sales (and multiples of $1000) in your first four months, you are going to earn Wishes Rewards.  So for every multiple of $1,000 you will earn $200 in Wishes Rewards.  These rewards can be redeem for product and/ or business supplies; VISA gift cards or Disney dollars.  I know this is A LOT to take in but stay with me.

Let’s say you host a launch party (in your home, online, Facebook).  You only need $70 more in orders to reach party status when you use your gift certificate.  Easy Peasy!  The average party is about $600 which means YOU are going to earn as the hostess a $150 in commission, the hostess benefits ($100 in FREE products, 2 half price items, 2 hostess exclusives and a monthly hostess special), as well as the AMP reward.

Now, imagine your party jumps to $1000 in sales.  It can happen, believe me.  Now, you are earning $250 in commission, $200 in FREE products, 2 half price items, 2 hostess exclusives, an AMP $100 level reward, 200 in Wishes Rewards and you have unlocked a Fall Hostess Exclusive.

All of this can be yours with just a $49 investment!  I will help you along the way.  If you are close (within an hour’s ride) I will come to your home to help with your launch party.  If you aren’t, I will help you with a Facebook party and can FaceTime in for your party to answer any questions or help out.

SHARE the love and ask a friend to join you on your journey. They could join you for just $49 as long as it is by May 31st.  If they have $1000 in sales (or multiples of $1000) in the first four months, YOU will receive an additional 400 Wishes Rewards points.

Who do you know who could use some extra money?  Maybe they just need some girl time and a break from the kids this summer?  Maybe they just love to shop great deals?  Whatever the reason, Thirty One has the answer.  What was the last thing you spend $49 on?  If you do nothing else with the $131 gift certificate than shop, you will earn $32 BACK in commission and earn the $100 AMP Reward.

By sharing the love, you are also earning points towards The Sea of Dreams Wishes Incentive.  A chance to earn a 7-day cruise for TWO!  This is the first time Thirty One has opened this incentive to all consultants.  It is so doable when you join now and start sharing Thirty One.  What better way to start your own business then with a group of your friends, right?

Did I mention you get ME too.  I am the one in the PINK cowboy hat along with some of my team at Thirty One’s National Conference.IMG_0164

 

Ask any question you want about my business. I am an open book!  I am here to help you on your journey. I LOVE to answer questions.

April Showers Bring May Flowers

If you are in Jersey, it seems like the dreary days of April may continue into May but it won’t be long and we will be able to enjoy the wonderful Spring weather (hopefully)….

May is an AMAZING month for so many reasons.  In our house, it is celebration time. First my birthday, then Mother’s Day, then our wedding anniversary followed by my one year anniversary in recovery!  So many things to be grateful for…

Things are happening at Thirty One, too!  The May Customer Special is TWO of the upcoming totes in Thirty One.  They are the Crossbody Organizing Tote and the newest addition to the Thirty One family the Small Utility Tote.  It is actually half the size of Deluxe Utility Tote!   This versatile product has so many uses, you will need more than just one.  It has become one of my new favorite bags!

There are THREE great ways to take advantage of this month’s customer special…

#1 – Could you use some extra money? Maybe you could pay off some bills? Or pay for the kids summer activities?  Maybe you just need some girl time?  Maybe you are looking for a career change?  Whatever your reason, I would love to help you reach your dream…We have TWO different Enrollment Kits to pick from…. the Signature for $99 (over $350 in product) or the Deluxe for $179 (over $450 in product).

PLUS with sales of $1000 up over the next 4 months, you earn Wishes Rewards!  You will be able to use them for more free products or business supplies, VISA gift cards or Disney gift cards.  Think of all of the possibilities.

#2 – Not sure about starting your own business…. how about hosting a girls get together? When was the last time you hung out with the girls without the kids?  Need a break from the craziness of life?  You supply the friends and I will do all of the work….  We can have a home party, a trunk party, a “happy hour” party, text party, or a Facebook Party.  I also do fundraisers so we can help out your favorite cause while having a great time. Which one will fit into YOUR busy schedule

For just $200 in orders, YOU can have a qualified party. Did you know only 6 orders of $35 will get you a $200 party? I offer home, catalog/online, drinks at a local restaurant and 31-minute Facebook LIVE parties.

With a $600 party, you get this AMAZING hostess special for just $35.  The Miles of Style Bundle includes: the Miles of Style purse and a Rubie Mini. A great gift for the graduate.

#3 –  So maybe you just LOVE to shop? Don’t need any extra money.  Don’t like to hang out with the girls.  BUT you do love a good deal…

So here is the AMAZING Thirty One Customer Special for May – DRUM ROLL, please!!!!

 

The small utility tote is just $12 with a $35 purchase.  OR the Crossbody Organizing Tote for $15.

 

 

So, to sum things up…there are THREE opportunities with Thirty One this month (actually every month!):

3 options

Which one is for you? Have a ThirtyOne-derful day!

Want to Pay CASH for Christmas?

 12088041_10156243541075220_2290995292340795411_n

Do you wish you could pay cash for everything you buy at Christmas this year?  Are you tired of running up the credit cards then dreading January?  Do you long for just two hours to catch up with your friends? Would you like to go to a party every time you go to work?

1844_10153223080145724_1522613950_n

I have just the thing for you!  I have been where you are and thought “it is impossible”. Guess what? It’s not!

I was a single mom. I commuted 2 hours round trip to work everyday to my full-time 50+ hour a week job. My daughter was an All Star cheerleader for 4 years – need I say more. My Friends? I rarely saw them.  Christmas was filled with lots of shopping and YES, I used credit cards.  Budgeting was not a strong point for me.  Now, the money that I make from Thirty One allows me to treat my family – birthdays, Christmas or just because.

Picture you and a few friends gathered in your (or their) living room. Laughing. Talking. No kids. No significant other. Light music plays in the background. There are some cute products on display. You feel like you are giving a private showing in a small boutique to your friends. When the night is done, you feel refreshed and energized. Your friends have had a good time.  The best part is that you just earned an average of $150.  Where could you work for 2 or 3 hours and make that kind of money?

Thirty One is offering an AMAZING opportunity for new consultants during the busiest selling season of the year….

#1 The Enrollment kit awaits! You get over $400 in product (plus all the order forms, catalogs, and more to get started) for just $99.

#2 – This is where it gets REALLY exciting… Host your launch party and enter $600 the first 30 days, you’re also going to earn your 1st Start Swell! You get to choose ONE kit when you submit $600 in your first 30 days. Which one do YOU want?! And in your first 4 months, you have a chance to earn FOUR of these kits!

Start Swell - Fall 2015

#3 Ask a friend to join you on your journey. If they join you in your first 4 months, and they they qualify within their Start Swell period, you earn $100 BONUS! There is no limit!!!!

Did I mention that on top of all of this you get ME and the Rays of HOPE team to help celebrate, encourage and support you on your journey.  Why not try it for 3 month?  If it doesn’t work, what is the worst that has happened – you have earned some extra money and gotten some AWESOME products.  BUT what if you find out that you LOVE it!  You could have a new business or even a new career.

Blogging

Half Anniversary

50edd2d96d584dcd8d68d7f13b997d69

Have you hard the Chinese proverb that says that “a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step”?  That can even be a baby step as long as it is a step forward….

I have been blogging for 2 1/2 years every day.What started as a challenge from Vanessa Coppes, co-founder of the Entrepreneurial Think Tank for Woman has turned into a way to share my vision of empowering woman. My very first blog was personal about bullying  my daughter received in school.  Since that very first blog, I have learned so many things about blogging and growing my business.

So, if you are looking to blog, let me share some of the things that I have learned so far:

  1. Write about something you know.  It should be something that you like. Themes are great if they fit into your vision.  Just don’t write about things because you think it will generate traffic. Your readers will quickly figure out if you are writing a lot of fluff or if you are writing from your heart.
  2. Keywords or as the techies call them SEOs.  Basically that is “search engine options”. which is how you will be found when people are doing a search.  You’ve done a Google search right and the list of hundreds of things appear.  In that list will be some blogs with your keywords in them.  I write as thoughts come into my head – scary, right?  Then I go back and add links and figure out the keywords that can be used BUT that is after the post is done.
  3. Make sure that you proof read and do spell check before you schedule your post.  Bad grammar will take away from you message. Make sure the text is consistent and there are no typos.
  4. I have found that planning out my blog is important.  I may not write the actual blog but I do have ideas jotted down for the next month.  I jot down notes and ideas when I think of them.  I leave them as drafts and then I go back to finish them up or sometimes I will toss them.  Planning ahead will help you be organized.
  5. Organize your posts by category so that it is easy for your readers to find blogs with common subjects.  Use labels, and include a search box that will help readers find what they are looking for. A messy or too complicated to navigate blog will scare readers off.
  6. I like to include pictures that relate to my post.  Why?  Pictures and a catchy title will draw people in.  They get and keep people interested.  PLUS if you use other social media avenues to publicize your blog, pictures are great in news feeds.  Remember that a long text is hard for people to read.
  7. Be sure to include an “about me” section in your blog.  People want to interact with other people, not with machines, so they like to know who is on the other end. Include your photo if you have no problems with that.  I use personal as well as stock photos in my blog.

So, who is ready to start blogging?  If you already have one, post your link below so we can all check it out.  I look forward to adding lots of blogs to my reader board.

Have a ThirtyOne-derful day!

Business Tips and Tricks, Hope Wissel

Rejection

 

rejected

How many times have you heard the word “NO” when you have called a potential customer, hostess or recruit?  I am sure more times that we want to admit to and each time it may sting just a little, right?

For some, the word NO is a personal rejection and not a NO to the business option presented to that person.  For some, the word NO is just a word and they move on to the next person.  Which one are you?  It has taken a LONG time but I don’t take it personally now.  The truth is:

rejection

Picture this:

You go out for lunch or dinner, at the end of the main meal, your wait staff offers you dessert.  You think about it and say “no, thank you”.  Does the wait staff never ask another person if they want dessert?  Does the wait staff go back and beat themselves up because they didn’t sell a dessert?  No, they just go on about their work – offering options to the next customer.

So why is it different in our direct sales business?  Yes, I know that there are LOTS of people who can take the same approach as the wait staff.  I also know that there are many who take it to heart, wondering what they could have done differently or letting the negative feelings take over.  Shaking them off may take a little longer for this person.  Why is it easier for some and not others?

I learned (the hard way) to change my mindset from always looking for a YES to always expecting a NO.  Okay, that sounds a little crazy right?  But when you are looking for the NO, you are excited about the YES.  I am not going to say that it is easy especially for those who are always looking for a YES and almost come to expect it.  It takes practice but changing that mindset can make all of the difference in your business.

The 100 NO challenge is a great way to help to change that mindset:

100 no's

Start tracking the NOs that you receive when you offer the opportunity to someone.  It can be to host a party, join your team or simply purchase a product.  Now, this doesn’t mean that you should imply the question, it means ASK them specifically.  Would you be interested in (insert the opportunity)?  When they say NO, cross it off.   Believe it or not, for every 10 NOs that you will receive, you will receive a YES.  Then celebrate that YES with a happy dance.  It will feel so good.

happy dance

 

A NO doesn’t mean that you are in the wrong business.  A NO doesn’t mean that you aren’t good at booking, selling, or recruiting.  A NO simply means that the person is not ready TODAY.  Call them in a week and the answer may be different.

A great lead in for that is when they say NO, ask them if it is okay if you call them back in (enter a time frame).  Maybe it will be month, maybe it will be a different season, to maybe it will be 6 months.  The chances are good that they will give you an okay to call them again.  On the far side that they said, please take me off your list – it is okay.  For the very few customers that tell me not to call again, I tag them to mail them a “thinking of you” card in about 3 months.  Maybe they had a bad day.  Maybe I can get them to smile when they get the card.  Who knows, maybe they will call YOU because you thought of them without getting a sale.

 

 

 

 

 

The key is not to give up.  Who is going to join me in the 100 NO Challenge?

Have a ThirtyOne-derful day!
