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.

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.

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.
