Selling Thirty-One Products
Selling Thirty-One Gifts is fun and very rewarding. There are several ways to do it, and depending upon your goals and commitment, it can become a lucrative opportunity.
- Individual Orders: One way to is to collect individual orders. These are orders you collect from friends, family, neighbors, co-workers, and anyone else you show the book to or that contacts you wanting to sell.
- Home Parties: This is the fastest way to make money. You can host your own party and invite your friends and family, or you can have a friend host one for you. Thirty-One offers great incentives for hostess including free merchandise, half-price items, and items that exclusive to hosts only.
- Catalog Parties: This is a great way to bring in large orders as well. With a catalog party you simply put together a packet with catalogs, flyers, and order forms and give it to your hostess. She then takes it to all her friends, family members, co-workers, and neighbors and collects orders and then returns the packet, order forms, and money to you by a particular time, usually within 1-2 weeks. You then take the orders and submit them. She gets all the hostess incentives while you make your earnings from the orders. Best of all, you have very little time invested. These are the perfect opportunity for your customers who say, "I don't have time for a party."
- Online Sales: You can collect sales when customers shop the website. You can pass out your link on the website to friends and family who do not live nearby. This is another great reason for networking and using social media. You can also set up online parties using your website. This is a great way to party with friends who are not local.
Are You a Thirty-One Consultant?
Thirty-One Consultants do not have to recruit other consultants. However, if you decide to take the path to leadership and start your own unit, then you can earn more. That path does involve recruiting. There are leadership incentives for those who decide to take the next step in their consulting business.
There are two ways to earn money as a Thirty-One Consultant: sales and leadership. Sales is obviously required in order to be a consultant, but leadership is optional for those who are interested in earning even more while mentoring others.
- Sales: You earn 25% of your entire sales. Not bad, considering the average party is around $650. You figure a party lasts an hour and a half, maybe two hours at the most and that's a quick $162.
- Leadership: With Leadership you can earn an extra bonus on your own sales and 2-9% own your downline. In addition, there are bonuses you can earn when you achieve new levels of leadership. For example, achieving Director, which consists of 4+ in your downline is a $1,000 bonus. Now really, that is a great incentive.
Consultants are paid once a month. When a consultant places the order, she sends the entire amount. At the end of the month, Thirty-One tallies earnings and either sends a check or deposits directly into the consultant's account. The great thing about this is that you can see your earnings in one lump sum instead of a few dollars here and there that you may not recognize.
