Her Secret Formula for Success | “I have a formula for sales, but there is no secret to achieving retail volume with Apriori Beauty. I use self-discipline and committed, written goal setting to run my business every month. I learned from a wonderful mentor, Patricia Mattison, that sales are not magical, but rather mathematical. The more people I share Apriori Beauty with, statistics say, someone will want to buy it. I believe that I have the most amazing products, so I am excited to share them with everybody. If anything, the Turn Back Time Capsule is magic; the sharing of these little jewels is the mathematics.”
Her Game Plan | “I buy 10 Turn Back Time Capsules every month. I have to share with 10 new people every month because I have committed to buying 10 more the next month. The capsules are my worker bees. They are my employees; so to speak. I value each and every capsule because they are either income earners for me or they are money out of my pocket, if I don’t use them properly. I know that if I don’t follow up with the women I am sharing capsules with, I am just wasting my money.”
Please Don’t Barf on Me! | “I don’t ‘BARF’ Apriori Beauty information on people. I keep the introduction of under 2 minutes. I give them a capsule, instruction sheet and catalog and tell them that I’d like them to experience something unique on their skin. I tell them that I’ll answer all questions when I check back in with them in 2-3 days. I tell them to enjoy the feeling they get when using this product line. Next, I FOLLOW UP!!!!!! I call them in 2-3 days. I ask them if they have questions. I want to meet their needs and I can’t do that if I don’t follow up.”
Keeping Her Customers Happy | “Another key ingredient to my successful retailing is reselling. I know how long the products are supposed to last, so I get on the phone and call clients up when it is time to reorder. It can be frustrating for a Client to run out of products, so I like to use my customer service skills to keep my Clients happy.”
More Than Just a Sale | “I also keep a fun relationship going with my Clients in between sales. I research fun tips and facts about caring for skin and share these tips with my Clients through texts and emails. I want them to know that I care about them. I do not want them to think that they are JUST another sale to me.
It is Nice to Meet You! | “I meet new Clients through other Clients. I ask for referrals. I give gifts of appreciation to Clients who refer others to me. I have kids so I meet Moms at football games and school events. I invite women to try a capsule once I establish a relationship with them. My purse is my office. I carry my business cards, capsules, instruction sheets and catalogs with me ALL THE TIME! I am always open for business.”
