Default Question for Demo

Sorry if this has been asked, but can someone explain to me what a Hobby Demo is? What are the pros and cons of a hobby demo?

Thanks.

Basically, you are a demo just to support your own habit. Maybe you sign up just for the discount. Or make just enough money to pay for your own goodies.

OH - there are not necessarily "pros" and "cons". It's just a matter of whether you want this to be a source of income or just do it for pleasure.

a hobby demo is basically someone who signs up to be a demo but has no real plans to try and make a business out of it...

I would say you have a few different types of demos

Strictly hobby - sign up - buy things really only for themselves - don't advertise they are demos, have classes, hold workshops, etc...

Break-Even Hobby - signed up to pay for their hobby...they might do a workshop or two...maybe do a class but funnel most of their "income" back into new merchandise

Crafty Business Demo - Demo's who take it up a notch higher with the business aspect - they buy the bare minimum to run their business and want to make some money each month for things other than stamps (imagine that) - they might have a small downline - they would do more with workshops and classes to really pump up thier businesses

Full Business Demo - I put demos who sole purpose is to make a business out of whatever company they represent - they are the ones who might have a fairly large downline...do lots of workshops and classes and try to recruit

Thanks so much for the info. That's exactly what I was looking for. Heck if I'm gonna spend the money on stamps, I might as well give myself the credit.
