Default Demoship in black and white?

I have been reading all of the threads about becoming a demo during SAB and I've talked with my demo who would be my upline should I sign up. But I feel like I'm not getting a really solid answer as to what exactly is required to sign up and what exactly I can order as part of signing up and how demoship works. I need to see something in black and white. I hear or read a bit here and a bit there and then I'm sort of confused.

So my question is - Is there somewhere I can go to see exactly what becoming a demo intails? I've been to the SU website but I didn't find anything.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Okay, here goes. This will be long, but hopefully it will help. It costs $199 for the start up kit (plus tax). In the kit you may either get the recommended stamp sets or choose your own sets that you want of the same value. Here are the recommeded sets and how much they are worth.

Itty Bitty Backgrounds $11.95
Fresh Flowers $24.95
Tags and More $19.95
All Year Cheer I $29.95
Perfect Party $24.99
Blossoms and Bugs Wheel $5.95

Now, if you don't like those choices, you may choose another set or sets in place of the ones you don't like, but they must be the exact same dollar amount. For example, when I signed up, I didn't like Perfect Party $24.99, so instead I got In Full Bloom $24.99.

AND for accessories, you get the Stampin' Around handle, stampin' pastels, sponges, cello bags, SNAIL adhesive, craft and rubber sissors, stampin' scrub pad, stampin' mist, versamark pad, and a basic black stamp pad. You may choose one color of ink cartridge for the stampin' wheel, you get 2 packages of assorted cardstock (you may pick which group - BB, EE, RR, SS), one package of ultrasmooth cardstock (you choose the color), and your choice of 5 stamp pads (Recommeded are green galore, yoyo yellow, real red, pink passion, and brilliant blue).

AND you get business supplies including the First Impressions video, getting started video and folder, guest invitation postcards, Idea book and catalogs, seasonal mini catalog, fresh flowers instpiration sheets, and much more.

AND you will get the new Sincere Salutations stamp set everyone is going gaga about, AND you may choose any retail stamp set from the current Idea Book & Catalog when you sign up. You must write the name of the set you choose on the top of the starter kit form. If you don't request a certain stamp set, you will automatically receive Everyday Flexible Phrases as your free set.

ALL THAT FOR ONLY $199. Just think how much you would pay if you bought that out right.

Just thought I'd point out, they don't have to be the exact same amount, they just can't be worth more. It makes more sense to maximize your kit's value, but if you just don't like any of the $24.99 sets (or already have them) you can choose something else of a lesser value.

Once you become a demo, you only have to order $300 a quarter to remain active and to follow SU!'s policies according to the agreement you signed. That's it. Everything else is up to you as far as how much you want to get out of your business. There are loads of incentives, but if you just want to stay active and no more, $300/ quarter is all you need to do.

Your demo should have given you a sign up form and demo agreement. That should explain the basics, and once you become a demo you will receive a more in depth demonstrators manual which should answer many questions that you have.

Hope that helps.

There is a BIG demonstrator manual that you get (on a CD) when you sign up. It contains ALL of the rules.

When I signed up, I thought it was odd that I didn't get to see the manual BEFORE signing. If you really want/need ALL of the information, ask your demo to see her manual.

Is SAB a special time to sign up? If so, why? Is it the best time to sign up?

TIA!

I'm sure someone could answer this better but I think that it is such a good time because people are more likely to place a 50 order to get a free stamp set therefore increase you sales and possibly get the 300 you need to make the quarterly minimum. Whew! Sorry for the run on sentence. I talk like that in real life too Not to mention that if you sign up In Jan or Feb you get a free set of your choice in your starter kit and also the Sincere Salutations stamp set which won't be available til March. Dang! Did it again!

Default SAB

SAB is the best time to sign up. You are getting 2 more sets than normal! Sincere Salutations and a set of your choice. That set can be valued at up to $38.95. Also, it is a good time for the recruiter. She will also get a little extra gift for recruiting during SAB.

When I signed up, all I got "extra" was an idea book that I don't think we even sell anymore. It is a great time to get started. JUST DO IT!

Y'all are great! Jessica - Thanks you so much for all of that! It will really help me. I will probably become a demo in Jan but am just worried that I will end up spending more than necessary seeings how I only intend to be a hobby demo.

I would sit down with your demo and ask her for the demo agreement form, and the contract with all the terms and agreements, I would also ask if you could see the recruit brochure along with the First Impressions video.

I went over several lists of questions with my upline and it took me several months to decide. My upline was willing to show me numbers and forms that I was needing to see and was willing to answer as many questions as needed. She also made it clear how she would be able to help and support me.

If your potential upline is vague about details, she may not be sure herself.... I would be sure to figure out how she will be able to support you!

Good luck!

Darla: When you share your excitement with your friends and family you will more that make your $300 per quarter. Don't worry it will always work out

The great thing is that if you can't make it, there is no problem. You just go inactive. The demonstrator kit is such a deal that you just can't lose if you love to stamp. There are no minimum number of shows you must book, ever. It is just so much fun.

Does the $199 starter kit count towards the free SAB sets you can get for every $50 purchase?

No. The starter kit fee goes to a different department. The $50 SAB must be put in by the demo through a customer order or a hostess order to get the free sets. But i think that the free set from the catty (any set you want!) and the free sincere salutations set is a much better deal anyway!

I signed up during SAB last year, and I think that was the best time of the whole year... Because I signed up in January, my first workshops were during SAB, so it helped my early workshop totals.

I don't believe so, no. Just like it doesn't count towards quarterly minimums. SPeaking of the quarterly min., don't forget that it's $300 RETAIL value -- you pay 20% less to purchase it.

Also it is worth mentioning that you don't have to make minimums till the end on June, as that will be the end of the first Full quarter, and anything you put through in the part quarter (jan, feb, mar) will go torward the minimum for apr, may June. So if you were thinking about a slow start!! or just want to have your bases covered...

Leslie, in Alvin we got 5-6 inches and it was great. Weird that the more south you went the more snow there was.

Also, don't forget about the add on kit. I don't know many of the details on it but I hear it is great.

My demo said that when she signed up, there was no add-on kit like that available. I added the scrapbooking kit and plan on putting my finished pages from swaps in it to showcase! I'm so excited!

So what's in the add-on kit & how much is it? What other extras are there?

I'm sorry...I could be asking my demo all of this! I'm not going to be signing up anytime soon. My hubby would kill me...I recently signed up to sell Tupperware since they had a $25 kit deal & I haven't made any "money" yet (but my pantry looks fabulous & organized with all of the new Tupperware I've used my profits on!).

I don't have room at this house to do the same with SU! We're planning on selling this house & getting a bigger one with some land soon, though, so I want to be ready with my stamping plans! Hey, he wants a workshop so I should get a stamping room!!

Am I also correct in understanding that if I make 400 in sales at my workshops before Feb is over I can get Occasionally from the Winter Mini as well as a free SAB set for reaching 300? I was reading the winter mini and the SAB catty. Somebody please help me figure this out. I am trying to figure out what I can afford and I have my heart set on 3 SAB sets!

I don't think the partial quarter sales goes toward the first full quarter...or am I thinking of Stampin' Start? It's one of those that only the first full quarter sales counts towards. Sorry, it's been a while since I've signed up and I don't remeber for sure, but I'm sure there's someone out there that can clarify this.

Hi Melissa,
You must be the 'hostess' of net workshop sales totalling $400 by Feb. 28, in order to earn the Occasionally set. Because of the terrific discount on a new demo's first workshop order, many times that first order does indeed qualify for the mini catty hostess appreciation set! Whoever is designated as the 'hostess' earns the set, whenever her totals reach $400 before the ending date of the appreciation set.

HTH!

I am planning on signing up in January and am also planning on getting the extra scrapbooking add on. For only $50 more you get another set of cardstock, a simply scrappin kit- (which you can also use to make cards with) a craft pad, a pen, an album, and an alphabet set, and a set of tags! Every demo I have talked to "wishes they had this when they signed up", and would reccommend getting it. This is a great time to sign up if you can! The extra freebies are also great! With all of the help and support on this website, how could anyone go wrong?

It does now -- thre is a notation in the January SS magazine as to the change in policy.... sales done in the remainder of the sign-up quarter WILL count towards your first full quarters quota

LOL! Yeah, the whole "back in my day when I signed up...."

Let's see.. the Canadian Starter kit was $315, was not customizable (included stuff like the Smile set), had far less then what's in it now, S&H was 15% or $15.95, whichever was greater, and took almost 3 weeks to arrive. Oh yeah, and no Great Rewards or LogoPlace for Canadians.

Plus, the catalogue was in US dollars only, and we had a wacky supplement to flip through to find the Canadian price!

Things are WAY better now!

Yup, if you are signing up now during SAB (Jan-Feb-March quarter), your sales then will now also count towards your first full requirement period (April-May-June).

Which means you have up to 6 months to fulfil your $300US/$450CDN quota!

GREAT new change to policy, IMO!!

OMG!!! that is great!!! Now I can relax and just have fun - that quota shouldn't be hard to meet at all!!

I just hope I didn't send my forms in too early!! I mailed them yesterday - I can't imagine them getting there in a day or two but stranger things have happened. I did date them for Jan. 1/05 so I should be ok....right??

Oh jeez, I should have waited!!! now I am so worried I was too anxious to get the forms in!!! arrgg!!! darn it!!

Bonnie, don't sweat it! While it is WAY doubtful that they'll get it for tommorrow, you can just get your upline to email Dale at the Calgary office and ask him to make sure that they put it aside to process in January only.

HTH!

Thanks to everyone for responding to this thread. I guess when it comes right down to it I easily spend $100 a months on stamps and I may as well be getting the discounts. One thing no one has mentioned is what I'll have to do come tax time. I truly only intend to be a hobby demo.

Along that line would I have to get a business license to be a demo?

I'd like to know the answer to getting a business license, as well. Thanks!
