Recognizing outstanding retailing results!
Working her way up Apriori Beauty’s Top Retailer lists, Melissa Glod is a consistent Retailer, continuously building her retailing business month-after-month with new Clients.
When I was first approached by my good friend Kathy DeRango about Apriori Beauty’s opportunity, I hesitated. I was working full-time as a hair stylist and between work and family, I didn’t see room for anything new. I had tried the product samples she gave me and noticed a definite improvement in the way my skin looked and felt. Despite my reservations, I registered as a Client and two months later, I took the plunge and became an Independent Consultant. I didn’t know how I was going to fit this new business into my schedule, but I did know that I wanted to share these amazing products with my friends and family.
My retailing business has been a slow growing process due to my schedule. There have been many times where I’ve found myself discouraged because I’m not moving at the pace as some of my fellow Consultants, but I remind myself that we’re all on different paths with different lives, and as long as I set goals and stay positive, I can achieve anything! It’s funny because when I first became a Consultant back in 2011, I felt like I couldn’t do the business because of my full-time job. Flash forward to now, I have my full-time job at the salon, plus a part-time job on the side and my Apriori Beauty business. I’m busier now than I was in 2011, and yet my Apriori Beauty business is doing the best it’s ever done! Proof that despite your schedule, there is room to fit in a little here, and a little there. As long as you’re giving your business the attention it needs to grow, you will get results. It’s like a skincare regimen – if you don’t consistently use the products and take care of your skin, how can you expect it to improve?
Whereas I’m not able to share Apriori Beauty at my salon, I do have previous salon clients that I’ve been able to connect and share with. Samples play a huge role in gaining new Clients and sales. Once I’ve shared with a prospect and have put the product in their hands, I wait a few days and then follow-up with them. Knowing how I can be wrapped up with things and the last thing I would do is reach out and order skincare, it’s important that I’m the one to follow-up with my prospects, not the other way around. They have busy lives and unless I connect with them and ask their thoughts on the samples, I’m probably not going to hear from them. One thing I plan to start doing is coffee dates, which will allow me more time with prospective Clients, and give me more room to share the products. It’s all about stepping outside your comfort zone and not just doing what’s easy. I want take my business to the next level and with that comes commitment and creativity. 2015 is all about staying focused, creating goals, and putting my success out into the universe to be heard.
Apriori Beauty has taught me so much about healthy skincare and anti-aging. I’ve learned the role nutrition plays in gaining healthy skin, as well as the importance of using safe ingredients. Apriori Beauty provides us with endless amounts of tools for learning, not to mention the unbeatable Compensation Plan. As a Consultant, not only do I have access to incredible and effective products, but I also get a rebate on all my personal purchases (in addition to my weekly commissions). I am proud to be part of Apriori Beauty and believe 100% in the products, the Company, and the two lovely ladies (Susan Twellman and Elizabeth Vervynck) who created it!
