I became an Apriori Beauty Independent Consultant after working in network marketing for several years.  I am extremely passionate about what you put on your skin as it is a result of how you look and how you feel. Having a son that was diagnosed as an infant with severe food allergies, I started learning very quickly about product ingredients and the effects they can have on your body if they’re not safe and healthy. Due to this, I was truly inspired to use the purest products with safe ingredients that my family and I could use.  Apriori Beauty has it all; offering a household of products that work together to nourish your cells at the cellular level, promoting healthy, glowing skin.

I meet Clients every day and everywhere. Whether it’s at the gym (I’m also a Zumba instructor), the store, a party or event, I take advantage of my different surroundings and opportunities. I believe everyone I come across is a potential Client who deserves to hear about Apriori Beauty’s incredible skincare products. When talking with someone new, I ask them, “If there was something you could change about your skin, what would it be?” Based on their answer, I decide which product to recommend that would best suit their skincare needs. I then offer them a sample of the recommended product (or line) and relay I’ll be following up with them in a few days. I always include a sample of the Celloxylin® Enzyme Activated Micro Scrub and Pure Detox, Purifying Masque. These two treatment have greatly helped my daughter’s acne and are my “must-have” products when sharing with others. My number one retailing tip is to always be consistent in what you do and never give up. Even if someone tells you “no,” don’t give up. Maybe they’re not interested now, but that doesn’t mean they won’t be in the future. Make a note to check in with them in a few months and see if anything has changed. You never know, by then they might be seeking a new skincare line.

One of the many benefits I’ve experienced with retailing is that I get paid every Friday. This “right now money” is fun money for me to enjoy and spend. Retailing is a significant aspect of my Apriori Beauty business, in which I enjoy helping new and existing Clients meet their desired skincare needs. I work closely with my Clients in finding the best products suitable for their skin, and in turn, I’ve received business success with repeated sales.

As you’re out there sharing and retailing the products, it’s likely you’ll come across some amazing people who are interested in a generating supplemental or a full-time income and want to create their own successful business. They see how you’re benefiting from sharing Apriori Beauty and want to join you on this ever-growing success. It’s another example of how retailing can grow your business, both via sales and sponsoring new Consultants. Apriori Beauty is a fast-growing, women orientated company with incredible products and a desire to help you, a Consultant, succeed in using the products and tools they offer. So, I leave you with one question, “Who is going to be your next Client?”

When I discovered Apriori Beauty, I had already been in skincare direct sales for many years and wasn’t looking to “start” a new business all over again. I was in the beginning process of building a career in real estate and was only interested in finding a new antiaging skincare line that worked. As the saying goes, “never say never” because after seeing the glowing difference in my skin right after sampling the products, I couldn’t keep quiet about this new skincare line – I had to share it with everyone I knew. Plus, with its rewarding business model, I knew there was no going back, I was going to be an Apriori Beauty Independent Consultant.

In order to successfully retail, you need clients. One common question I often hear is “how do I get clients?” One successful way to get out there and meet new people is networking. I attend as many networking and community events that I can get to. I joined a local BNI (Business Network International) group and even formed a Meetup.com group for women in business, where we meet monthly for lunch and networking. STP! As in “See the People” is important because you want to build a rapport with someone and gain their trust before introducing the products. When I first meet someone, I ask them what they do and inquire about how I can help them with their business. I invite them to other network marketing events and set up a time to meet for coffee where we can discusses our businesses (whether they be a realtor, an attorney, account, teacher, etc.) and ask to get their opinion on mine. Note, I don’t ask them to sample a product, instead I say, “Here is what I do, I’d love for you try out the products and let me know what you think.” Then I pull out a few different products and we discuss what they like, didn’t like, and more often than not, it can lead to a sale, right there in the coffee shop. If they don’t end up placing an order, I hand them a few samples to take home and try out. I never leave a coffee date without asking for referrals. Whether they’re interested in the products or not, it never hurts to ask if they know of anyone who is in the market for a new safe and effective antiaging skincare. The worst they can say is “no.”

It’s crucial you take advantage of the time you have with your perspective client and keep their excitement for the products going. Because it’s so easy for that excitement to fade once they go home, I make it a point to ask them if they’d be interested in inviting a few friends over to experience the products (aka a Beauty Bar). I quickly explain my hostess plan: each hosts receives a free Celloxylin® Pure Detox, Purifying Masque or an Enzyme Activated Micro Scrub, and if they purchase right now (while we’re setting a date), they can purchase the $145 Celloxylin® “In the Bag” set for only $116! Who doesn’t love saving 20%? Since I always carry an “In the Bag” set with me, she’s able to take home her new products that day and we have a Beauty Bar date set. It’s a win-win for everyone. Beauty Bars are beneficial for not only earning higher commissions, but for also gaining new clients. You have access to several prospective clients at once and if each person refers one friend, that’s double the new clients you have from only one event.

I may be a business builder, but I’m a retailer first. I love the right now money and getting paid weekly on my Apriori Beauty Visa card. Plus, happy and consistent clients often turn out to be incredible Consultants on my team, who go on to be successful retailers and business builders themselves.

You hold the power to turn things around

It’s amazing how my Apriori Beauty business in January turned out considering how it began. From the first of the month, I was sick for three straight weeks, disabling me from giving attention to my Consultants and Clients. I had goals I planned on accomplishing, but with everything going on, it didn’t look like that was going to be happening. There was a certain point where I decided I wasn’t going to let January go wrong – I couldn’t control my health, but I could control what type of month my business was going to have. It was time to make something good come out of the month. With a week left before the start of February, I started reaching out to people I had given samples to but hadn’t followed-up with. Just by making a few calls and reconnecting with others, I was able to drum up business, gain new Clients (and orders), and turn a sluggish month into a successful one. I needed to have one thing in my life I could control and that one thing was my Apriori Beauty business. I started off January sick and unproductive, and left it healthy and accomplished. It goes to show that no matter what, you can turn things around – even if you have less than 7 days till the close of the month.

I’m a firm believer in launch parties to jumpstart your new Consultant’s business. There’s an excitement that ignites in your business and it spreads awareness to your friends and family. Unless you announce that you’re starting a new endeavor, it’s likely others won’t know about your business. When I did my launch party, it changed the way I looked at myself doing the business. I announced my business, and it forced me to be productive, and get things moving. This party provides the platform for you to not only share with friends, family, and acquaintances about your Apriori Beauty business, but potentially have them share with their friends and acquaintances. I’ve had guests come to parties of mine (as well as my Consultants’) who would have never tried Apriori Beauty unless they were at the party, hearing about the products and sampling them – and now they’re amazing Clients of mine, and some even became Consultants! You may have a huge turnout, you may just have one person. Either way, utilize that outcome to your advantage. If someone isn’t able to attend, reach out and ask if they’d like to meet one-on-one or try a sample. Chances are, they’re curious and want to know about the products. Not everyone has to host a launch party, but if you’re serious about your business, I encourage you to consider it.

I’m a fan of parties, can you tell? In addition to launch parties, I love hosting Beauty Bars. Presenting can be a daunting task, especially if you’re a newer Consultant and don’t know everything about the products; however, it doesn’t have to be overwhelming. I always tell my Consultants: keep it simple. Whether I’m hosting a party or talking to a friend, I speak from personal experience and reference Apriori Beauty’s product catalog and website when necessary. If you begin rattling off facts, people will zone out. They want to hear the results and what the products can do for them. Yes, there will be people with allergies who are interested in knowing the ingredients. When this situation occurs, I pull out my notebook, which includes a copy of every ingredient and which products they’re located in (courtesy of Apriori Beauty’s Science Center) and we go through the ingredients together. It’s become a major resource of mine and I’ve found that people appreciate that I’m prepared and have an answer for them directly from Apriori Beauty’s website. If we can’t locate that specific ingredient they’re inquiring about, it’s because it’s not found in any Apriori Beauty products (i.e. gluten). When you’re prepared, it adds trust to your relationship with that potential Client/Consultant. Remember, it’s about building relationships. Before a person buys the products or the business, they have to buy you first, and that requires trust.

Twenty-fifteen has already started off great and with Apriori Beauty’s Punta Cana Incentive Trip and the new $49 Starter Kit, my team and I are on fire! Living on the east coast with zero below temps and snow storms, all I can think about is laying on the beach in warm weather and relaxing in the sun with my Apriori sisters. I’m going to Punta Cana in November and I’ve declared I’m going there for free, which means between now and September, my team and I will be working together to grow our businesses and earning our way to that sandy beach. I’ll leave you with one question – where will you be in November?

When I joined Apriori Beauty in March of 2009, there weren’t any products yet. I couldn’t even pronounce its name at first, but I knew that I had to be a part of this Company. From day one, I’ve believed 100% in Apriori Beauty, its Founders, and its mission*. Throughout these past six years, I’ve seen my business grow alongside Apriori Beauty as our product selection has expanded and more people are being introduced to the benefits of using a safe and effective skincare line. I especially love the retailing side of this business because it puts right now money in my pocket every week!

My Kindergarten report card said, “Val is a social butterfly” and to be honest, not much has changed since then. I love talking to everyone I meet and this has been extremely helpful in growing my Apriori Beauty business. People always comment on how good my skin looks and I never fail to make it known that it’s because of our amazing products. When they see first-hand how effective Apriori Beauty is, they’re instantly interested because they know these products actually work and aren’t just false promises.

I never know where my newest Client will come from. It could be someone from the gym, grocery store, a colleague from the school I work at, or even a long lost cousin! I love wearing my Apriori Beauty tees and always take my Apriori Beauty Yoga Mat with me to yoga class. It’s easy to SHARE when people ask you, “What’s Apriori Beauty?” Meeting Clients is as simple as making that connection. But, these connections need to be real and from the heart. Are you more likely to trust a total stranger or someone you actually know and who is genuine? Make it a point to get to know your prospective Clients so they’re not just a random name you handed a sample to, but rather, a real person you can see yourself talking and connecting with on a regular basis.

When it comes to gaining new Clients, one of my favorite things to do is offer a Free Mini Facial. I’ve found this to be the perfect way to help qualify a prospective Client: Are they really interested in that sample? Will they use it? How can I get their information? The answer is the Free Mini Facial! I am guaranteed to get them USING and LOVING the products through this venue. I encourage them to bring a friend or two and advertise it as a ‘Girls Day/Night In!’ Remember, introducing the products to potential Clients is meant to be a fun and enjoyable experience for everyone.

In addition to getting the products on peoples’ faces, in order for me to maintain high sales, I need to be consistent. This may mean following up with Clients, offering them specials, or even running contests – as long as I’m connecting with my Clients on a consistent basis, my business remains steady and flowing with orders. In addition, it’s imperative you address the needs of your Clients. Not only will your Clients be happy and satisfied, your sales will automatically increase. Stop selling and start serving! At Apriori Beauty, we have something that people need and the better the customer service you provide, the better your business will grow.

Finding Your Beauty

LindaBoney“If someone told me three years ago that one day I’d pose for a glamour photoshoot and be a model for a day, I wouldn’t have believed them. For over 10 years, I suffered from adult cystic acne. The breakouts on my face and neck were so severe, I never wanted to leave the house and wished I could just put a paper bag over my head. The treatments consisted of painful extractions and needles. I received acid peels that burned and used prescription products which helped, but never healed the condition. I started seeking out alternatives and came across Apriori Beauty. I immediately fell in love and within only a few months, my skin had completely transformed! Since I started using the Apriori Beauty products, my self-confidence has increased, I wear a lot less makeup, and I only use my topical acne medication when needed, which is hardly ever. I am frequently asked if Apriori Beauty’s skincare can be used and will work for Women of Color. I believe Apriori Beauty works for all skin types — the proof is in my skin! It’s the quality of the ingredients that make the difference … Apriori Beauty stands out from the rest. Thank you Apriori Beauty for giving me back my confidence and my life. I am beautiful inside and out, and will be forever grateful!”  — LINDA BONEY, Consultant from NY

“I’ve been in Direct Sales since 2001. I quickly found that Network Marketing was where I wanted to be. It allowed for a flexible schedule, plus I could earn money while building new relationships. I have a very strong belief in multi-level marketing and was drawn to Apriori Beauty because of the Opportunity, and more importantly, the integrity of its Owners. Before there were any products to sell, I was on-board, not just as a Consultant, but as a Founder as well. I reached out to family and friends, and was quickly joined by many of them as Apriori Beauty Founders and Consultants. Since signing up in 2009, I’ve built a solid team and expanded my Client base. I believe business-building and retailing intersect, both requiring perseverance and a positive attitude. I love watching my team gain confidence as they begin to grow and promote. The same with my Clients – when they feel good about themselves, I feel good. This is definitely a relationship-based business. Before I approach a prospective Client, I get to know them and build a relationship with them. Apriori Beauty is such a young Company that there’s even more Opportunity for all of us in the future. I see a very bright and positive future. If you continue to believe in yourself and commit to your passion, you’re going to be very successful.” — TRICIA BAUMGARDNER, Founder & Silver Director from CA

My goal is to share Apriori Beauty and to make a difference, not just to make a sale!

I didn’t set out to become an Apriori Beauty Consultant. To tell you the truth, when I agreed to try a sample, I didn’t think the products would be any different than the hundreds of others I’ve tried. I have had problematic skin my entire life and feel like I’ve tried everything out there. Things would work for a little bit, and then my skin would go back to being dry, red, and sprinkled with acne. Over the more recent years, I had started eating organic and looking for healthy alternatives to care for my skin, which is when a few close friends of mine introduced me to Apriori Beauty.

Throughout my first year of using Apriori Beauty, I was getting compliments on my skin for the first time in my life; I couldn’t believe it! I was already using and loving Apriori Beauty, so I took the leap and signed up to be an Independent Consultant. Talking to people comes easy for me; however, selling is far out of my comfort zone. Since I know there are people out there with skin issues just as I had and are missing the opportunity of using Apriori Beauty, I decided to jump out of my comfort zone and began sharing. I started my business off slow, mostly sharing with close friends and family, who knew and trusted me. I focused my time and efforts on them, learning more about the products and becoming comfortable with introducing Apriori Beauty to new individuals.

It’s important for my business to always follow up and check in with my Clients. I want them to feel that I’m reachable and available. If they have questions, they know they can come to me and if I don’t know the answer, I will easily find it for them. I couldn’t succeed without the incredible support I have from my upline, who are always there for me whenever I have a question or concern. There is an endless list of knowledgeable and confident people at Apriori Beauty willing to help out at any moment. This past year, I hosted my first Beauty Bar, and it was the best decision I could have made because it gave me the confidence to talk more. I loved how relaxed everyone was, and there was no pressure to purchase. With the start of a new year, I plan to do more Beauty Bars and share Apriori Beauty with a wider selection of people.

I found a passion with Apriori Beauty and the reason why is because the products are safe and work for me! Sharing Apriori Beauty with others and seeing them experience positive results has been life changing – having my business grow is just an added bonus.
