So much of this business is relationship building, and as a people person, I thrive off of meeting new people and hearing their stories

As a Founder, I’ve been with Apriori Beauty from the beginning, before there were even any products! I’ve not only been able to see this Company expand and develop, but have also seen the change in myself as well, both personally and professionally. Over the past few years, I have come to learn a lot of successful business tips, all which have been instrumental in growing and maintaining a steady retail business.

So much of this business is relationship building, and as a people person, I thrive off of meeting new people and hearing their stories. Whether I’m developing a personal relationship or sharing something I love about Apriori Beauty, the first step in getting there is to just start the conversation. Instead of pre-judging those I come across, I look at everyone as an opportunity, who I can talk and share Apriori Beauty with. With this mindset, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain! It’s common for me to introduce myself to strangers just about everywhere I go and I like to begin every conversation with a compliment. Who doesn’t love hearing something nice about themselves? I know I do, plus it poses as a natural segue into skincare and health. When meeting and talking to others, you first need to be confident and believe in yourself. You wouldn’t be interested in learning about and purchasing products from someone who appeared to doubt what they were saying, would you? Of course not, which is why it’s imperative you not only know what you’re talking about, but also believe in it 100% (easy to do when sharing Apriori Beauty).

As if starting the conversation isn’t daunting enough for some, I’ve heard a lot of people ask, “what do I say?” when speaking with new and potential Clients. If I’m meeting someone for the first time, I share a product that relates to our conversation. For example, if it’s flu season, then I focus on our incredible Lifeoxylin® Cellular Defense Elixir. If the weather is changing (hot to cold / cold to hot), I introduce the Celloxylin® Enzyme Activated Micro Scrub and Hydro-Burst Moisture Intense Lotion. For every conversation topic, you’re likely to find a product you can bring up in the conversation. When I’m sitting down with a new Client, I make a point to pull out my Apriori Beauty catalog and go through it with them, showing the various products and benefits each product provides. If you’re stumped for words or unsure of how to introduce the products into your conversation, rely on your own personal experiences with Apriori Beauty. Your best selling point is your testimonial. People can hear lists of ingredients and facts, but when it comes down to it, they want to know why you use and love Apriori Beauty and what it’s done for you.

If someone brushes you off or says they’re not interested, don’t take it personally. Chances are, they’re saying “no” because they’re unsure of switching skincare or possibly unaware of the many benefits Apriori Beauty can provide their skin, health, and even financial situation. Don’t let their “no” paralyze you. Instead, make a note to reach out to them in a month or two and casually bring up Apriori Beauty into the conversation. People’s lives and situations change and it’s possible that whereas last month wasn’t right for them, they’re now in a different place and open to hearing about and trying Apriori Beauty.
Regardless of how and where you share Apriori Beauty, always be consistent. I’m committed to sharing at least one product sample a day and following up 3 days later. In addition, referrals have played a significant role in gaining new Clients. I always ask for referrals because networking is the key to success. I love to reward my Clients; they’re the foundation of my business. I offer Clients a $25 gift card for every referral of theirs that places an order of $100 or more. Clients are my priority and I check in with them frequently by sending out personal ‘Thank You’ cards or sometimes a gift card for being a loyal Client. I appreciate their continuous support and love for the products. Without them, I wouldn’t have a business.

On days where you’re feeling unmotivated to work your business, keep in the mind the weekly paycheck and additional perks you can receive just by talking about Apriori Beauty with someone new. I love getting paid every Friday. It’s rewarding because it allows me to help support my family and do extra special things for my kids. Last year, I surprised my three boys and husband with a trip to Hawaii, which was funded by my Apriori Beauty income. I look forward to treating them to another fun activity this spring. Along with being able to surprise my family with gifts, my Apriori Beauty retail business has become a steady income, where I’m able to be there for my family without working long hours. Having the freedom to make my own hours is ideal because I have three active boys, whom I’m constantly driving to sports games and practices. I love what I do and I love sharing Apriori Beauty with others. I’ve hosted Beauty Bars out of my car at football games and even at the airport. This business allows me to share anywhere, anytime. I feel blessed to be part of this incredible Company and am excited to introduce it to even more people!

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?”

Timing is everything!

When it came to getting momentum going for my Apriori Beauty business, timing was everything. I’ve been with this Company since the very beginning (before there were even products), but in order for my business to thrive, I had to feel and know when it was the right time for me. My love for the products was never a question. I was always sharing how amazing the products were with friends and family. Instead, it became more of when I was ready to bring others on board with me.

I began reaching out, one person at-a-time. Between working full-time and having a busy family, I needed to be careful who I was investing my time with. Relationship building became my focus. Each person I reached out to was someone I already had a relationship with. They were either co-workers or gym buddies. In fact, a Consultant of mine, as well as a new Client are both women I know through the gym. I also realized that a majority of my business relied on other peoples’ timelines, not just my own. I often received responses such as “when I finish my other products, I’ll try yours,” or “call me next month.” Through this realization, I learned how important follow-up was. Sometimes you gain success with follow up, sometimes you don’t. Either way, just keep moving on to the next person.

Two outlets that have impacted my business the most are Beauty Bars and Social Media. If you have an opportunity to either host or attend a Beauty Bar, I highly recommend it. It’s a fun way of sharing the Apriori Beauty experience with your potential Clients (and Consultants), and it gives your guests the opportunity to try the products and see the results for themselves. Seeing is believing and people like results, especially when it involves their skin! When it comes to social media, I’ve never been an active Facebook user, but I knew it would be beneficial to my business. After updating my profile picture and posting an Apriori Beauty image or two on my Facebook wall, I immediately received comments and messages from friends I hadn’t seen in years asking me for product samples. Before I knew it, I was registering new Clients and placing orders. It was at this time that I realized building a retailing business was where it’s at for me. I love getting paid every week and when my Clients are interested and ready to be Consultants, I will be there to help them get started on their own journey.

Working full-time, being there for my family, planning events, and going to the gym are just a few aspects of my crazy schedule. I’ve come to notice that the busier my schedule is, the more I actually get done. As a way to stay focused and organized, I make a list each night for the next day, which includes family, work, and Apriori Beauty. My aim is to give each section of my life the time and attention it needs. It’s all about balance and I’ve finally found mine.

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!

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?

Turning Dreams into Family Memories

Natalie and family enjoying the surprise of a lifetime in Hawaii
Natalie and her family enjoying the vacation of a lifetime

“A few years ago, I decided to surprise my family with a vacation to Hawaii, paid for with my Apriori Beauty earnings. I established weekly and monthly goals and it paid off! I had been keeping it a secret from my husband, because I wanted to surprise him first. On Valentine’s Day, I shared the exciting news with him – the whole family was going to Hawaii over Spring break and it was already paid for! He was so happy and proud of me, which made it even more special. We waited until the morning of the trip to share the news with our two youngest sons that not only were we leaving to go to Maui, but that their older brother
Mitchell, who lives away from home for school, would be joining us. My family and I were so happy to be reunited on a beautiful island, where we had the opportunity to enjoy being all together as a family. It was one of the most memorable vacations we’ve ever had and I’m incredibly grateful to Apriori Beauty for helping me achieve this dream. I truly love what I do, Using Loving and Sharing Apriori Beauty, and am grateful for the opportunity to make a difference for others. With Apriori Beauty, dreams really can come true!” — NATALIE WALSH, Founder & Manager from CA
