FAQ ABOUT BECOMING A DEMONSTRATOR


Q.  Why Stampin' Up?  

A.  Become part of an organization that's been in business over 30 year, and already has over 50,000 demonstrators world wide.  A company that cares about it's demonstrators.  A company that provides its demonstrators the tools to be successful.  Not creative?  Don't worry, you'll soon find that you really are creative.  However, Stampin' Up! provides "Done For You" ideas and samples that you can duplicate on your own and then show others how to do the same. You'll also find me to be a wealth of ideas. With a family of demonstrators also creating wonderful ideas for using Stampin' Up! products, you'll find plenty of inspiration on Pinterest, Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, and personal blogs of other demos.  And most demos are flattered when you CASE (Copy and Share Everywhere) their projects, when you give them credit for their original idea.  
.
Q.  Is there a minimum I have to maintain in sales?
A.  To maintain an active demonstratorship you need to maintain sales of $300 per quarter (every 3 months) from customers or demonstrators.  Even if you sign up as a hobby demonstrator, this could easily be maintained by making occasional sales to your stampin' friends in addition to your own purchases.  One idea is to host a Paper Pumpkin Craft Kit party each month with each friend purchasing a Paper Pumpkin subscription for 3 or 6 months through you so you can all craft together without a lot of prep or even if you have limited supplies.  You can even get together in a coffee shop or restaurant so no one has to clean their home!  Spice up your party with a contest on making alternative projects with each kit.

Q.  Do I have to do workshops?
A.  Only if you want to!  The choice is absolutely yours.  If you never want to present a workshop, then you never have to.  But if you would like to do workshops, then its entirely up to you. You decide the kind of workshop and schedule.  Use the samples in the catalog for your card ideas or create your own. Your fellow demonstrators also post project ideas on demonstrator-only Facebook groups called the Demonstrator Planning Place.  Demonstrators love to share.  Join a card swap with other Demonstrators for a supply of card samples to use in your Workshops.  And Stampin' Up! publishes new ideas for Demonstrator use every Tuesday.  Also, using social media, you'll find that you can present workshops on YouTube, or Facebook Live to drive sales in addition to or without hosting in-home workshops.  It won't happen over-night, but with consistency, you'll find your business growing.  The average sales from a workshop is $300 in commissionalbe sales, so about one workshop a month will not only meet your quarterly minimum, but help you obtain higher titles and larger discount levels.

Q.  How can I earn money?
A.  You earn an immediate 20% on all of your sales in any given month.  This becomes a 25% once you reach $1,800 in sales.  You can earn addition depending on your title and level of sales in any given month.  If you choose to build a team of your own who wish to become Stampin' Up! demonstrators, you can also earn team commissions, which the company pays to you based on the sales of your recruits three levels down.  Demonstrators have strengths in different areas. Some excel in personal sales; some shine in nurturing new recruits and helping them advance; others have a knack for developing team leaders.  Performance bonuses compensate demonstrators who show exceptional achievement in sales, recruiting, or leadership. 

Q.  Do I have to keep products "instock"?
A.  No.  You will place orders that are paid for in advance by your customers so you won't need to keep any inventory.  Or, your customers will use your on-line Stampin' Up! store to place their orders with you getting sales credits when they order.

Q.  Do I get any training?
A.  As your upline, I'm here to help in any capacity that you require on your stampin' journey.  I've been a Demonstrator for almost 15 years, and I can provide you the rational of why Stampin' Up! operates as it does and ways you can benefit.  I'm always just a phone call or text away.  As a former director of websites for two different Fortune 50 companies, I'm able to work with you to set up your own free website, and can help get you started with social media (Pineterest Instagram, Facebook) to help you drive traffic to your blog and on-line Stampin' Up! store.  You can market throughout the USA.  I've also managed extremely large Corporate Programs in Communications, IT and Engineer, and can help you with time management and project management.  We don't need to live in the same city.  We can use Zoom, FaceTime, or other face-to-face computer applications, texts and emails to work together.  You'll also receive regular mailings of samples, ideas and quarterly team updates to help remind you of upcoming Stampin' Up! promotions, tools, and deadlines.

Stampin' Up! also provides a Stampin' University on the Demonstrator website to provide you with templates, videos, and other marketing materials, and photos to show you how to maximize your Demonstratorship at every step of your growth.  Stampin' Up! also has a wonderfully helpful Demonstrator Support team that you can call or email for questions or help when you're unable to immediately reach me.  And, Stampin' Up! sends a weekly email packed with tips ideas and tools.

Q.  What are the start up costs?
A.  The cost of the Stampin' Up! starter kit is $99, and your can completely customize it from items from current catalogs up to $125.00 plus your kit ship free!  You can sign up completely on-line. Click the "Get Started Today" link below.  Or contact me and we'll work through your Starter-Kit Order and paperwork together.  It should take less than an hour, and your demonstrator number will arrive in about 20 minutes.  You can begin placing Demonstrator orders with your 20% discount as soon as your demonstrator number arrives by email.

Q.  What if I decide it's not for me after I've signed up?
A.  There is no penalty for dropping.  You simply stop placing orders at the end of a quarter.  However, Stampin' Up! gives you an extra month to make up your quarterly requirement, if you decide to continue.  But there is no requirement to continue.  And, later, we can work together to decide on the best strategy if you plan to join my Stampin' Up! team again.  You're always welcome back!
