When I speak with someone about the Stampin' Up! business opportunity, the How Much? and What If? questions are usually part of the conversation.
- How much does it cost to join Stampin' Up!?
The Starter Kit is $99 plus your applicable sales tax... shipping is free.
- How much do you get in the Starter Kit?
Included in the Starter Kit are Stampin' Up! products of your choosing totaling up to $125. (During Sale-A-Bration 2014, you get to choose an additional $25 pushing that total up to $150)
The kit also includes a business supply pack with order forms, catalogs, etc. valued at $65.
- How much do you have to sell to be a demonstrator?
Good question! Minimum sales requirement is $300 a quarter. The $300 includes what you purchase for yourself plus what others purchase from you.
Think about it this way...if you have two parties/workshops at $150 in sales every three months (a quarter), you'll meet your minimum requirement in sales.
- What if I don't make the $300 in sales?
First,as your upline, I will contact you to answer questions or offer suggestions.
If you are under your $300 at the end of the quarter, you'll go into Pending Status for one month. During the month, you'll have the opportunity to make up the difference for what you lacked in the $300 total for the previous quarter.
...So say you made $250 in sales for the quarter- you'll need to have at least $50 in sales during the first month of the next quarter. If you exceed that $50 in that first month, it will go toward the $300 for that quarter.
- What if I am unable to make up sales needed while in Pending Status that first month?
Then at the month's end, you will no longer have demonstrator status. That's all that happens. You do not have return Starter Kit, Stampin' Up! does not call, there is no hassle. Period.
- What if I'm a beginning stamper and don't know everything about stamping and paper crafting?
Honey, no one knows EVERYTHING...we all start somewhere! I had been stamping for a few weeks when I signed up. True story.
These are just a few of the questions I receive but are all EXCELLENT questions and I love answering them.
So, if you have been thinking about joining Stampin' Up! as a demonstrator...ask away? I will be happy to discuss it with you.
And, if you've read this far, I KNOW you've thought about it and I would love to mentor you gently as you make your demonstrator-ship what YOU want it to be!
Let's get started, shall we? Questions, anyone?
