“When I love something, I tell everyone”
I used to be the woman with flawless skin who never gave much thought to her face. Even as a teenager going through puberty, my face was always clear of zits. And then three years ago, I gave birth to my beautiful son and everything changed. My skin became greasy and was constantly covered in acne. After going through an endless amount of products that no longer worked for me, I went on the search for a skincare line that was safe, honest, and worked for my face. And then, I came across Apriori Beauty.
A lot of skincare companies don’t want you to know the ingredients they use in their products. Sure, they like to feature the popular and safe ingredients; however, there’s hidden items in these products that we as consumers aren’t notified of. What initially attracted me to Apriori Beauty was the Science Center on the website because it lists and describes every single ingredient found in the products. They don’t hide anything because they don’t have to – all their ingredients are safe and healthy for you! I requested a sample and used it up … every last drop. This was it; Apriori Beauty was the skincare for me. My skin began clearing up and I was getting compliments on my skin, which was especially nice because it’d been a while.
I initially signed up as an Apriori Beauty Consultant just for the discount. If I’m using the products, why not become a Consultant and save some money? People notice when you do something different, and I was no exception. Friends, family, and even acquaintances started asking me what I was using because they were seeing an improvement in my skin. I soon realized that I could pay for my skincare simply by sharing my Apriori Beauty experience with others. Once I opened myself to the opportunity, people started purchasing and my business began growing. Even my husband jumped on board! He’s not only 100% supportive in my business, but he is also one of my best Clients (his current obsession is the ViViD Treatment Oil)! It’s not about selling and pressuring someone to buy; it’s about sharing what you use and love. You’d be surprised at how easy it is to incorporate Apriori Beauty into a conversation. If you’re talking about the weather, relate it to their skin (is the climate leaving their skin dry or oily?) and then discuss your skincare and how it works for you.
Want to know the secret to a successful business? Follow-up! If you don’t follow-up with people, they’ll put those products samples away in a drawer and forget all about them. One thing I’ve learned is that people aren’t annoyed when you follow-up with them. Instead, they’re actually quite grateful and appreciative. When I first started, I was afraid I was bothering them, but that’s not the case. They lead busy lives too and sometimes just need a little reminder.
I’m still new at this, and every day has been a learning experience for me. Between being a Pilates Instructor and Massage Therapist, I see numerous Clients every week and they look to me for advice. It’s refreshing to know I can share Apriori Beauty with confidence and not feel insecure about my skin. When someone asks me about becoming a Consultant, I tell them, “If it’s something you use, it’s a great way to get a discount and if you share it with others, it’s an added bonus.” Use, Love, Share – yes, it’s just that simple.
