You can turn your hobby into a business for as little as $99...
Hey there!! Are you spending $240 or more each quarter on stamping supplies with Stampin' Up!? Would you love to get a 20-25% discount on products every time you order? Do you enjoy getting together with friends to stamp and craft? Do you have friends who like to stamp, too? If you answered yes to any of those questions, Stampin' Up could be a fun way for you to support your stamping hobby or earn the extra money your family needs, and getting started costs as little as $99.
What comes in the business kit?
You'll receive $125 in product of your choice plus some catalogs and a few other business supplies---> all for $99 (USD) + tax and free shipping.
When you join during Sale-a-Bration (Jan-Feb,2024), you'll have access to new Jan-Apr Mini Catalog products you can add to your kit order AND you'll start earning early Sale-a-Bration rewards with each subsequent order.
Note: DURING SALE-A-BRATION (1/4/24-2/28/24) Stampin' Up! is offering an additional free perk---> The Glass Mat Studio. This includes a gorgeous glass mat, cleaning shammy and silicone palette/brush cleaner mat.
Do I have to demonstrate?
No. The only requirement to remain a "demonstrator" after you purchase your kit, is to place $300 in orders every quarter. These can be your own purchases or placing orders for friends. That's it. Should you wish at some point to start a monthly or quarterly class in your home or in some other venue, or if a friend would like to "book a workshop" with you and you share your love of SU! with her little group of friends, that's entirely up to you. Although it could certainly help you to reach your sales requirement, its not mandatory.
What are the benefits of joining your team---(Queen City) Stamp Art Crew?
My little stamping family and I would love to have you join us! Being part of a demonstrator team is fun and inspiring. We gather regularly for creative time -- a crafting session with friends. I provide projects, technique training, share insights on a business topic and we have fun chatting and visiting. These virtual gatherings are fun even if you're not working a business! If you WANT to build a business, I'm here for you too! I'm a "business builder" and would love to help mentor you through the journey, sharing resources, ideas, doing brainstorming and growing together. I can offer a regular Business Builder Chat with members of the team who would like some extra business support. I will meet you in this wherever you are and help you to get wherever you want to be. There will never be any pressure to make your business anything other than what you want it to be, but you'll have any support you need. That's my promise.
What if I don't live near you?
It's totally OK. You can enjoy all the perks of being a Demonstrator with Stampin' Up! and even being a part of the Stamp Art Crew and not live in the state of North Carolina. I will make sure you're included in all monthly meetings and quarterly training, including the crafty projects, even if its through Zoom or FB Live. You'll have opportunities every month, to be fully included, no matter where you live.
What are some of the benefits of being a demonstrator vs. being a customer?
Demonstrators get lots of fun perks, such as:
A 20% discount to start, and then once you hit a certain rolling-sales total, that jumps to 25% and beyond...you'll have an early opportunity to earn free product credits too, with the Quick Start program
Early access to all three seasonal catalogs AND early product access! You can order new products at least a month before they become available to customers...
Corporate events, like OnStage where you gain access to an even EARLIER look at new catalogs and product ordering, surrounded by other demonstrators who love SU! too. These events are AWESOME--so fun and inspiring! Stampin' Up! is very generous with their demonstrators, you'll leave with tons of ideas, make & take projects, new product and the best part---the newest catalog.
Being part of a the (Queen City) Stamp Art Crew--- regular crafting group meetings and a team newsletter where you'll experience recognition, project ideas, business training and friendship.
What training resources are available from Stampin' Up!?
Stampin' Up! provides terrific support if you'd like to learn as you grow your customer base--
A quick-start program to get you up and running as a business within your first six months, with product credit incentives---if that's your goal.
A Stampin University section of the back-office website where you can learn more about any aspect of the business that interests you, from social media how-to's to finding new customers. There are SU corporate videos on product information and SU demo videos on all kinds of topics to help you grow your business.
DBWS, which is essentially your personal Stampin' Up! website. You pay a $12.95 fee each month to gain access to this perk and it allows you to have a safe website where your friends and customers can place orders. It also has a delightful EVENT tab where you can put in classes you're offering so people can search for demonstrators in your area and see that you actively hold events. They can even reach out and contact you through your site.
Amazing corporate events such as CenterStage, OnStage and Leadership conferences.
A tremendous help desk at the corporate office to assist you with any issues surrounding your business, from customer service issues, product issues or technical issues with your DBWS site. They are kind, efficient, knowledgable and very helpful.
Team Leader Support---I'm here for you too, first and foremost, to help you grow your stamping and business skills.
Please contact me if you have questions about becoming a Stampin' Up! Independent Demonstrator.
E-mail is probably the best way to reach me for first contact and we can set up a time to talk if you prefer the phone or Zoom if you like video chat!
