My Apriori Beauty journey began back in March of 2015 when I offered to host a “Launch” party for my daughter Olivia, who had just joined as an Apriori Beauty Consultant. It was at the party where I experienced the products and was so impressed by what I was putting on my skin that I signed up that evening as an Independent Consultant and purchased 99% of the products.
Being married, in my 50’s with three children between the ages of 15 and 27, and working part-time as a Pediatric Nurse, I’m around people of all ages who are interested in anti-aging skincare. In building and growing my business, I’ve adopted one of Apriori Beauty’s mantra as my own, Use Love Share. It’s always my opening line and when you use, love, and believe in a product, it’s very easy to sell.
I work in a busy office so I started off by sharing with my female co-workers. I brought in samples for everyone and left catalogs on their desks. Before long, I had everyone using Apriori Beauty. I then hosted a Beauty Bar where I invited my tennis teammates and girlfriends. Again, the products impressed all of them! One of my favorite times is when my daughter Olivia and I joined forces and brought in lunch for the women in my husband’s office for a special Mother’s Day treat. My husband had even purchased the Celloxylin® In the Bag Set for all the women. From that luncheon, I signed up and sponsored my first Apriori Beauty Consultant!
Since joining in March, my business has grown steadily. I always travel with samples and share at every opportunity I get. When it comes to samples, I like to make the extra effort and put them in lovely samples bags that include the product catalog and my business card. For me, packaging and presentation are vital when introducing the products, as it’s my potential Clients’ first exposure to Apriori Beauty. One valuable tip I’ve learned from fellow Consultant and Executive Director, Lisa Adam is to get the email address from the people you share samples with. That way, you can follow-up with them and get that much closer to a sale. In addition to handing out samples and developing a follow-up system, I’ve found that purchasing Apriori Beauty gift cards (you can get $25 gift cards for only $20 when you’re a Sr. Consultant/Manager/Director!) and using them to cover the cost of shipping for Clients has greatly benefited my sales. Spending a little on a luncheon or free shipping really does go a long way when you’re growing your business.
Along with being impressed with Apriori Beauty as a Company, I appreciate the standards by which the products are developed. There are a lot of skincare products on the market, but not all of them are safe nor effective. Being an Apriori Beauty Consultant has been an incredible journey that I’m blessed to be experiencing alongside my daughter Olivia. I’m excited to expand my business and continue Sharing products I Use and Love.
