Multiple demos.
You take the orders for people and the demos order for you to distribute.
The demos are making a higher profit than normal, according to you.
And,...everyone's happy.
No wonder you don't want to be a demo.

And, of course, after I read that, I realized that it could be construed very negatively. So, let me just state (for Annabelle)...all I meant by the previous post was: it sounds like you've got a system in place that works for you and the demos. Kudos. I'm sure alot of demos would love to know how you guys have managed to make it work so well.

Wow with a built in customer base you should become a demo....
that's what I did - I had gotten a number of friends interested in SU and my demo mentioned to me about becoming a demo and selling to those friends...I did and now I have a small customer base and very little money comes from my own pocket for me to buy the stuff I want (actually last year by the end of the year I had a few hundred in my SU account)...

I don't get a carte blanche 50% discount. Read again, the conditions.

I like demos who treat me well. What can I say???

To be honest, I didn't read it the first time, 'cause I don't really care.

If someone was giving a discount that is more than they possibly could (because she's losing money at this point), I'd be appreciative, too. I'd be loyal to her, but that's just me.

SHe assures me she is not losing money on the buy one, get one a 1/2 price because she makes more than 25% per sale. Sorry this is so distressful.

If she were losing money, I would think she would be smart enough not to send the coupon to hundreds of people each year. She seems to be managing her business just fine, because a couple of years ago the company sent her on a cruise or a trip of some sort.

gotcha. I was reading it as other folks were buying the $150 and you were getting the catty, but if you are the hostess of a catalog party I see the misunderstanding.

If you have a demo or multiple demos and they provide these things to you then they have found it to be a system that works, and as long as everybody is happy then that is what matters.

Uhm, distressful? No. Life has bigger problems to be distressed about. And that makes more sense. I was misunderstanding.

Our definitions of loyalty must be different. In the sense of sales, If I am loyal to Target, I don't shop their competitors. Again, that's just me.

Wow! I just cannot imagine this. I buy at Walmart, Shopko, K-mart, etc. Whomever offers me the best deal, best service, most convenience gets my business. I cannot imagine Target meeting all of anyone's needs! I also buy groceries at 4 grocery stores! I buy my clothes at dozen's of store. I don't believe in "loyalty" when it comes to things like this.

That's fine for you and everyone is entitled to their opinion. You have defined loyalty for you and Mel has defined it for herself. All is well in the kingdom f stamping and everyone has found what works for them.

It was an analogy. To each their own. I would not "shop" my friends to see who gave me the best deal. For the last time -- that's just ME.

Good luck to you and your demos.

I would hope the one that you drove to convention last year is your friend.

Wow, Annabelle...you really do shop around. Is it just a habit, or do you have a lot of kids? I only ask 'cause usually teachers make fairly good money (once they are up in the seniority ladder), but if you have a lot of kids it doesn't matter HOW much money you make, they eat it all!

My kids are basically grown although live at home parts of the year while they are doing continuing education. One of them will start a Master's degree next spring and may need to be here for financial reasons and due to a serious health disorder that at times makes managing difficult. When they are here they do eat a lot LOL! Yes, I have not only been teaching for many years but also have 2 post graduate degrees and I teach year round and so get the pay for the summers too. It is a good deal since I will eventually be sole support of the family as my husband's neurological disease progresses.

FAIRLY GOOD MONEY??!! LOL... Sign me up where I can find that as a teacher! Yes, compared to others teachers do make decent money (around here beginning is 30,000/year) however, consider how much money and time 5 years of school cost and it's kinda piddly. Other professionals with a masters degree make at least 2x that. But, if teachers made bank I think there would be many more people getting into teacher for the wrong reasons.

Anyways, back to our regularly scheuled program...

My DH is a teacher...compared to what I made at my last job, he makes great money (I was a programmer, though I certainly was not paid as much as the other ones in our company)...though it certainly isn't much in comparison to other professions. But he's got 20 years of seniority, so he's far beyond the initial start-up salary he got, thank goodness! At one point, we were making about the same money when he was cut back to 4/5's, but that was long, long ago.

And luckily, he was grandfathered in before Michigan started requiring teachers to return to graduate school every 5 years to get 6 more credits...he'd make even more money with a Master's degree, but he only did the minimum post-graduate credit he needed to get his continuing certificate. However, with our three kids, his salary doesn't go very far anymore...that's why I figured Annabelle must have a lot of kids to have learned to be so careful with her money.

Nope, I am a banker's daughter and have always accounted for every penny. Drives my husband crazy. It was he who suggested I spend an allotted amount for hobbies which he decided was to be much more than I would allow myself. He feels stamping after work is much cheaper than therapy after work LOL! Working with mentally ill people requires one to have some sort of outlet!

Oh, I'm sorry, I also thought they were younger, just from one of your posts in the Family Matters forum:

Quote:

Our sons were told they could buy one when they turned 16 and they never did. My hubby found one at a yard sale a year ago and they only play it if they are sick abed. Anything that interferes with the important things in life like building a treehouse, teasing the dog, riding a bike, reading a book or playing down on the river is something we did not want in our lives.

So how many do you have? If you've got some that are in graduate studies and some that are still at home, you must have raised a few. Seems that I remember your saying somewhere that you raised foster kids too? I might be mixing you up with someone else.

I have 2 biologic kids but have raised relatives children too. Both of mine are at home at times, one due to illness and the other due to college breaks.

I think it was this line that makes it seem like your kids are young: " My hubby found one at a yard sale a year ago and they only play it if they are sick abed. "
If your rule was that they couldn't have a game system until they were 16...and your hubby bought one a year ago. And, why would you limit an adult's time to "when they're sick in bed"?

I thought you fostered, too. ? Just seem to remember that from somewhere.

Is it typical here for people to follow you around the board, taking notes on your personal life and then looking for holes in it as if one were making things up. This is just waaaay too weird for me!!! Why is no one else being asked all the details about their kids' schools, leisure habits, where they live, etc. Freaky!!!

I don't know Annabelle, but the segment that is quoted above states that her boys were allowed to buy one when they turned 16 but they DID NOT which now puts them at older than 16, right? And what ANY of this has to do with the original thread (which, by the way, is why people are charged for an SU! catalog) is completely beyond me.....
I wish the mods would shut down this toxic thread, it's giving me a headache.

Thank you Nonda. I am beginning to feel stalked. For what reason I have no idea. I will give it a few days and if it continues I am going to move on from this place. Just seems like some people seem to have some unhealthy obsessions starting here.

Good thinking -- everyone encourages everyone to just join. But, being a demo isn't for everyone, that's for sure. We do have to pay for the kit, keep track of everyone's orders, keep track of expenses, etc for our taxes. It is a job, a time consuming job -- and that doesn't even count holding workshops or classes!! Talk about expense. Paper is pricey and when folks say they are coming and then don't show up, it hurts!! That's why many demos are hard pressed to "give away" too much -- it is giving away our income, not our discount.
If you are lucky enough to have a demo with whom you are happy, stay a happy customer!!
