Selecting a Scentsy Sponsor isn’t a decision to be taken lightly…
Once you’ve chosen a Sponsor, you’re in it for the long-haul baby! There’s no jumping ship, so be sure you have the same goals in mind or things could get messy.
Here’s the truth, just because you were introduced to Scentsy by a friend, family member or consultant you met at a party, doesn’t mean that individual is the best Sponsor for you. If Scentsy is a hobby for you that’s one thing, but for most of us, Scentsy is a business we want to build in order to gain financial freedom for ourselves and our families.
This means you need a sponsor who inspires you, someone you click with, but also someone who can teach you the most effective ways to market yourself and the products you sell. Look for a Sponsor with ambition, a leader whose example you can follow – because their ambition will help you, too.
You want a mentor who won’t leave you floundering to figure things out on your own.
If you want to join my team here’s what you should know: I prefer internet marketing because walking up to strangers and trying to work Scentsy into a conversation terrifies me, and giving a packet to everyone who hands me a receipt is not my idea of a good time.
Those are cold markets – freezing! While you may get a customer or two out of the deal, chances are that packet is going into the trash along with the hard earned money you spent making it. In either situation you’re extremely lucky if you find the hidden gem who is a) interested in what you have to offer, and b) doesn’t already have a friend or family member who is a consultant.
I have found that it’s better to reach out in other ways, and the internet is perfect because social media and Google ads level the playing field and make the odds far more favorable.
As your mentor I can teach you how to attract people who are interested in Scentsy, market to them without being sales-y, and convert them into buyers.
Below is more information, plus some of the potential benefits of joining the Scentsy family:
