Canadian Demos ??
My friend is thinking of becoming a demo and she isn't sure about :

-What the benefits are?
-What minimums she would have to meet and how often ?
-If she joined now how long would it take to become a demo, can she join now or do you have to wait until a certain time.
-Basically any info you can give.

Thank you for reading this.

PS.. Honestly its a friend, not that old line of " hey I have this friend... " :)

Hi Wendy,
I am a demo from southern Ontario who started with SU after being to a couple of workshops and being hooked on the products. I had never stamped before in my life, but soon became familiar with many of the techniques, etc.
To answer your questions:
Basic comission is 20% of sales totals, but higher amounts can be achieved with higher sales. There are also product bonuses and a trip that can be earned... the standard direct-sell perks. (No pink car like Mary Kay though :lol: ) Also, there are the home-based business tax exemptions, but they vary from province to province, so she would have to check that out.
Sales minumums are quite low compared to most direct-sell companies. It is $450 for every quarter. And each demo has the option of being a hobby demo, which means they may choose to work primarily out of their home and not to workshops in other peoples' homes. As long as their min. sales are achieved, they will remain active.
Once you sign the paperwork and purchase your demonstrator kit, you are a demo! January is a terrific time to become a demo because there is a special promo going on with extra free stamp sets. As well, it is easy to get bookings, thanks to the sellabration special.
Hope this gives you the info you need. Feel free to e-mail or PM me if you need any other info. :D
Let us know what she decides.

Thank you Rhonda. I appreciate the info and I have passed it on to her. And thank you to eveyone who has pm'd me some info as well. You all have given her some great things to think about. I am thinking she is leaning towards being a demo.

Thanks again
