I’m giving the gift of Apriori Beauty
My excitement for Apriori Beauty as a Company, the products, and the Opportunity, has made it impossible for me to resist sharing with others. The Compensation Plan with right-now cash coincides with my passion for skincare. My goal is to get people using something that’s healthy on their face. Before I was introduced to Apriori Beauty, I wasn’t aware of how bad and unhealthy my previous skincare products were. Now that I’m educated on what it means to actually use effective, yet healthy and natural products, it’s important for me to share with everyone I come across.
For me, every situation is an opportunity to share Apriori Beauty. Whether I’m going to the bank, grocery store, coffee run, nail salon, or even picking up my daughter from school, I’ve found you can always find a way to bring up Apriori Beauty in a conversation. I usually have at least 3-4 samples on me (depending on which size purse I’m carrying), and challenge myself to come home with 0. I strike up conversations, either with fellow customers in line or the person behind the counter assisting me. Always trust your gut instinct. Sometimes I look at a person and can tell they put a lot of effort into their appearance. This doesn’t mean they’re vain, nor is it a bad thing. Don’t we all want to look and feel fabulous? I’ll approach them and say something along the lines of “I was admiring your skin and can tell how much care you put into it. I would love it if you could try this skincare sample and let me know what you think.” If they say “yes,” I’ll hand over a Celloxylin 6-strip sample with an Enzyme Activated Micro Scrub sample and ask if I can call them in a few days to get their input. Then, there are times where either the person doesn’t seem too invested in hearing about Apriori Beauty, or I don’t get a good feel for them. In this case, I don’t cross them off my list; instead, I invite them over to my house for a facial so they can experience the products. If they really want to sample the products, they’ll take me up on my invitation – if not, my instinct was correct. It would be a waste just to give a prospect a sample only for them to throw it away or never use it. I used to just give out samples to anyone I came across, but now I interview, select, and choose.
The key to building and expanding your Clientele base is getting your prospects to sample the products, and one great way of ensuring that is hosting parties. I’ve found success with parties because they’re a great way for meeting new people in a fun and casual atmosphere while sharing the products with multiple prospects at once. I start off the party with a mini Apriori Beauty intro, explaining how our skincare is different from others and educating them on different ingredients and which ones to avoid. I know the thought of hosting a party is daunting (it still is to me), but I can’t emphasize enough how great an avenue it is for expanding your Clientele base and gaining new orders. For those who hate speaking in public and being center stage, you only have to be in that position for 5-10 minutes … max! Once the guests start sampling, the focus will shift from you to the products. And as they say, Apriori Beauty’s products speak for themselves. Offer facials and focus on getting the products on the guests. If they save on shipping, place one big bulk order and hand deliver the products to them (always provide exceptional customer service). And, don’t forget to advertise the “Buy 3, Get 1 Free” specials by either offering a free product to the party’s host or informing guests that if four of them want the same product, they can order it at a discounted rate, or purchasing the products yourself and selling all four at the regular price, making over 30% commission – there’s so many ways to benefit from these specials.
If you’re going to be in this business, take advantage of every single avenue! You can’t sell something you’re not passionate about. So if you’re passionate about skincare, healthcare, and/or hair care, share it. My goal as an Apriori Beauty Manager (and one day Director) is to not only see my team grow, but Apriori Beauty as well. I want Apriori Beauty to be a household name, known by all. Until then, I’ll be over here in New York, sharing the products, one prospect at a time.
