Default When is the best time to sign up as a demo?

Could you help me? I want to sign up as a demo. We will be moving this summer, probably in August.......a military move. Anywho I am trying to decide what month is best. Are there certian demo promotions in certain months? Depending on what month you sign up don't you get a few extra months to meet your first min? Any advice from you wise experienced demos would be sooooo appreciated! Thanks!

Sell-A-Bration was good - there were a couple of extra sets. March is good because you would still get the free Sincere Salutations set. I'm not sure when other incentives are for new demos.

The incentive for me was that I wanted EVERYTHING! ha ha ...

I can tell you one nice thing about waiting until AFTER the new catty comes out is that you will be able to use your booster kit (can be used anytime during the first year) to get the next year's catty's at a great price. I signed in October so I'll be able to get the new catty's in my booster kit along with some other stuff.

Good luck and Welcome!

What is a booster kit? I've been a demo for too long, I guess, because I don't even know what that is. We didn't have anything like that 5 1/2 years ago.

Default Signing up to be a demo

Sellabration is probably the BEST time of the year to sign up to be a demo, but I would definitely wait until after the new catty is out to sign up. That way the new cattys come in your kit and there may be a recruit specail going on then.

If you are moving in August what about signing up in July. You would get the new catty's, it would be the beginning of a new quarter so that would give you until the end of December to make your first minimum!!!

It is a kit that new demo's can get to boost their supplies. It includes 8 IB&C, 2 pks of seasonal mini's, 100 postcards, 50 Customer order forms, All the Best and Little Hello's Inspiration sheets, and Small Talk Incentive Stamp set for $36 US or $54 CAN. You get up to a year to purchase it but can only get it 1 time

Are you looking to begin a business? I would suggest April to be the next best time to sign up as a demo. Why? Because the retirement list comes out in mid-May, and people only have till July to purchase the retiring sets. There will be a great sense of urgency to purchase from your customers. Also, you can take advantage of SU's fabulous demo promotion, Spring Forward, where you can earn hostess set's from the next catalog for FREE! This runs through the end of May, and you would have plenty of time if you signed up in early April to earn a couple of sets.

Plus, you would have clear till the end of September to get that $300 in!

I just signed up last week (so, March) and my demo said she didn't know of any bonus for signing up??? So I WILL get a free Sincere Salutations set? I wasn't aware of this!

(Rats -- I bought with my last order before signing up, but if I get a free one, I guess I can raffle it off at my Open House???)

Today! If you're excited about becoming a demo than the best time to sign up is now. Nothing can beat your own excitement as far as getting started in your business.

If you want to attend the convention in July you should consider signing up soon so you can register to attend.

Looks like April might be the time. SU just announced a $30 discount on the starter kit. That is a great deal.

In all reality the best time to sign up as a demo is when you are excited about it. Whether you are a hobby demo or in it to make money it isn't going to work if you are not excited.
Best of luck,
Bunny
