What do I do as a Demonstrator?
Share your love of papercrafting, creating cards, scrapbook pages, gifts, and home decor projects with your family and friends. Do this by running home parties, workshops and one-on-one coaching. Simply show family and friends the catalogue and collect orders, or meet your minimums by your own purchases and do none of the above.
What are the minimum sales requirements? What's the catch?
There are no catches. The quarterly minimum sales target is 300CSV* (£270 catalogue price) to remain as an active Demo. Remember, this can be made up of your own purchases, friends and family orders, and customer orders (should you choose to have customers), or a mixture of all three.
Your first quarterly minimum needs to be reached at the end of a full quarter, so if you join part way through a quarter you will be given until the end of the next quarter to reach your minimum.
*Whenever sales are mentioned in the Compensation Plan they're measured in CSV (Commissionable Sales Volume) and not local currency (Pounds Sterling). This is so we can use a common measurement across our global market.
What if it's not for me?
If you join and you decide it is not for you then you needn't do anything else, there is no further commitment. You don't have to give anything back; there are no fees to pay. You just simply drop by not placing any more orders. There will be no-one calling you or hassling you, you just simply stop.
Do people really make money doing this?
Yes. Depending on how much time you want to put into your business what you earn is totally up to you. Some people do this full time, others just a few hours here and there.
How do I make money doing this?
By keeping 20% of orders as income. You will also earn extra money if your monthly sales are over £270, and you can also earn a percentage of the sales of any downlines you have.
Do I have to recruit a downline?
No, not at all. Having a downline is a perk, not a requirement. It is an opportunity to earn a percentage of your downlines' sales, however it is also a responsibility and you will need to train and support them. Whether you take on downline demonstrators depends on what kind of demonstrator you want to be.
Do I have to hold workshops?
No. They're a good way to meet new customers, reach your sales targets, and meet new friends, but if you only want to do this as a hobby (and you'll be meeting your sales requirement with your own purchases) you won't need to hold classes or workshops.
If I do hold workshops and parties where do I get my ideas from?
There are many resources for ideas - Catalogues, training events, Stampin' Success, and emails from HQ. Our ethos is CASE ('copy and share everything') meaning you can copy and share what you find (eg. online).
Why join my team?
I'd love you to join my team. I'm extremely passionate about what I do, and I'm serious about being your Upline. I'm positive, I love the relationships I have with my downlines, and I'm committed to offering full support and training for those who want it. I'm totally supportive of whatever demonstrator you'd like to be and I'm on hand to help.
