It’s all about passion and excitement when discussing the products
I am truly blessed by my Apriori Beauty business. It’s given me the opportunity to meet and become close with a wide variety of women who share a common passion: helping men and woman look and feel their best through Apriori Beauty. When I first became an Apriori Beauty Consultant, I was more focused on the personal benefits of using the products and receiving a rebate rather than the retailing aspect of the business. Both Kathleen Jones and Terri Lindow (my up-lines), offered to help throw my first Apriori Beauty party, which turned out to be a huge success. Despite the positive responses from the party, it wasn’t until my friends started to notice the improvement in my skin and hair that I felt motivated to dive into retailing. I began sharing my experience with the products, my favorites being the Celloxylin™ Cellular Age Advantage line and Derma Firm Illuminator. They could hear the passion and excitement in my voice. Not only did my friends trust the words coming out of my mouth, but standing right in front of them was proof the products work!
Whereas my friends are wonderful Clients, I never limit myself when it comes to retailing and expanding my business. Potential clients are everywhere – work, the grocery store, your kids’ school, even a restaurant you’re having dinner at! It’s for this reason that it’s important to carry brochures and samples everywhere you go because you just might gain a new Client while pumping gas. Even when running a quick errand, I always make an effort to look nice and presentable, especially when it comes to my number one selling point – my face. This way, when I get into a conversation and the topic of skincare is brought up, I can incorporate Apriori Beauty with confidence and ease. And, if they are interested in trying the products and seeing results for themselves, I had them over a sample and follow-up with them three days later.
I have since hosted several more Beauty Bars at my house, which have been instrumental in growing my retailing business. I call them “Love Share Social” where guests can enjoy sampling the incredible beauty products with their girlfriends. In the invitations, I inform them that each guest will receive $10 off their purchase if they bring a friend. I also like to throw in a special gift (a favorite from their wish list). This small gesture leaves them thrilled and excited, as if I had given them a million dollars. One perk of so living so close to Apriori Beauty’s Headquarters, is that I’m able to pick up my Clients’ orders and deliver their products directly to them, saving on shipping costs.
Alongside Beauty Bars, Facebook has been another huge component in spreading the word about Apriori Beauty. Whether I’m “sharing” a post from Apriori Beauty’s page or featuring a blurb on a favorite product of mine, my goal is to share Apriori Beauty with two new Facebook friends a day and Instant Message them as a follow-up. Sharing my testimonial, hosting Beauty Bars, and being actively involved on Facebook have all been contributing factors to my Apriori Beauty success!
