Default I'm finally a demo!

So I signed up Friday night and my stuff is on it's way as of this morning (I was surprised!). It's about time I do this, as much as I spend! Excited to get my discount and place my first order...it's going to be HUGE! But who can resist the 30% discount??? That means I get to order 30% more right???? Haha. I figure I might as well make it count and order all the things I'd end up with anyway and get the extra 10% off!

For now I'll pretty much just be a hobby demo as I don't know a lot of people who would be interested. Going to try to put a workshop together sometime in the next few months though. Any suggestions on how/where to find potential customers? Not trying to get rich but would be nice to meet some friends with the same interests in paper crafting! Excited about my first upline meeting too! So....guess I pretty much just wanted to share my excitment!

Waiting patiently on my starter kit...and saving some $$$ for my first order....

Thumbs up

A big congratulations to you. You're right, now is the time to sign up, with the great deal that they are running. You certainly get more bang for your buck! It is great to see you so excited, and I am excited for you. I bet you are on pins and needles just waiting for that package to arrive. You'll be so overjoyed when it does, just like a kid in a candy store. Have fun "demo-ing".

Have a happy stamping day!

CONGRATS! I am sure you will have fun and get a lot of customers very quickly.

I agree, you should buy a lot now that you can get 30% discount. You might regret what you did not order on your first order!

demodebi, call SU Demo Support (800-STAMPUP) Monday morning. They'll be able to tell you if they've received it. 2-day priority isn't guaranteed, unfortunately, so it's hard to say just how soon SU will get your application. I remember when I signed up, I was pretty antsy, too, lol. So I called and they were able to tell me my new demo number, password to get into the demo website, and how to track my starter kit's delivery. So don't worry about calling daily if you want, lol.

Congrats to all of you who signed up! This really is the most phenomenal deal I think I've seen yet!

Congrats, exciting isn't it? I got an email saying that my order was shipping and with my UPS tracking number. I did change most of the sets out so maybe it had something to do with that, maybe mine were more readily available, just a thought. Happy waiting and have fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It is in your best interest to have that workshop ASAP.
1. your excitement is high and you will project that
2. you have *news* about your new demoship and can ask others to *help* you get started by attending your workshop.
3. The more they buy the less you spend on your own stuff! Use that income for YOUR stuff!
4. The 30% deal is only temporary.
5. Stampin' Start! You get Free sets for meeting Stampin Start goals within a limited time.

Duh, guess I didn't read that very well or wasn't feeling too smart when I did, haha. Yes, I did sign up online. That's why my stuff shipped so soon and why I could track it Blonde moment!
