Default someone tell me about SU!

Can someone give me some information about the benefits of becoming a SU! consultant? IE discount, requirements, commission How often do they do the mini catalogs? Are those items only available during that catalog? Can you buy items at a discount for your workshops, like paper and such? Any info from hobbyists? Do you find it hard to make your minimums? Any thing else you can think of.
Thanks!

discount = 20%
requirements = $300 in sales (excluding shipping and tax) per quarter
commission = requires certain amounts of sales I'm attaching some tables based on sales and on downline sales
How often do they do the mini catalogs? Twice a year plus the SAB catalog
Are those items only available during that catalog? Some will make it to the next big catalog but you don't know until the new catalog comes out.
Can you buy items at a discount for your workshops, like paper and such? See discount mentioned above.
Any info from hobbyists? I am a hobbyist who gives my discount to customers.
Do you find it hard to make your minimums? Of late I am because I am branching out to other stamps companies so buy less SU! stamps but still love their paper/ink/etc.
Any thing else you can think of = I'm attaching the SAB recruiting flyer in case you haven't seen the extra benefits of signing up now.
Thanks!

Thanks for the info, Stephanie. Some more questions.

Can demos buy the hostess rewards stamps and do they count toward your minimums?

Can demos be the hostess?

From what I gather, I can pick what stamps and ink pad colors I want in my kit, right?

How do you get the extra stamp set during SAB if you sign up? Is there a spot if you sign up online where you can pick the stamp set?

Thanks!

Can demos be the hostess?Absolutely YES!!

How do you get the extra stamp set during SAB if you sign up? Is there a spot if you sign up online where you can pick the stamp set?You write it at the top the paperwork

Thanks!

If you sign up online, it has a line for Define your life, which is the most expensive set in the catty. If you want a different set instead, just enter in the number of that set instead.

Just to clarify about picking your own stamps - you can only substitute ones of equal of lesser value to the ones populated on the demonstrator sign-up form.

So...just a question. Your min sales for the quarter are $300 so do you get comission on that $300 or is comission calculated on anything over the $300?

You get a 20% "instant income" on all your catalog sales, whether to yourself or others. If you sell over $400 in any particular month, you earn additional commission based upon your sales.

Your upline is the person you singup under. She (or he) should help you (to the extent that you want help) with starting and running your business.

Your downline are persons you recruit.

Default 30% Discount on First Order

I don't think I saw this listed, but you will also get an extra 10% off your first order (within 45 days of signing) for a total discount of 30%. So right now if you join the kit is 20% off, you get to pick an extra set PLUS your first order during SAB could be 30% off.

What is instant income? Is it credit towards SU product only, or is it actual money?

Instant income refers to when a customer pays you $20 for something, you turn over 80% of that or $16 to SU! and you keep the other 20% or $4 in this case.

Demonstrators can place orders with SU on-line 24-7 or via telephone during regular business hours.

You can't sign up on the general SU website because in order to sign up you need an upline. Once you select an upline (the demonstrator you want to sign up under) if she has a Demonstrator Business Web Site through Stampin' Up!, she will be able to give you a password that will allow you to sign up, with your credit card, through her demonstrator business web site.

You just need to find a Demo (in your own country) that has a demonstrator website. On their website there will be a link at the top that says "Join Stampin' Up!" When you go through that link it will ask you for a Recruiter Authorization Password. That password you have to get from the person whose website you're at (you can normally email them ahead of time to get it). That person will also become your upline. Once you enter the password, it will ask you to print off a Demonstrator Agreement, then choose the stamps/inks in your starter kit, and you'll have an option to pay with a credit card.

you're welcome to check out my website http://alesha.stampinup.net just to see where you need to click - however you won't be able to sign up if you're in the US (as it's for Canadian Recruits only).

Yep. It's free for the next 2 months as long as you sign up in the next few days (because it's new). I think afterwards it's about $15 CDN for one. I believe that it's about $13 US for one.

FYI
It was announced today that if you purchase the Kit during Sale-A-Bration you receive 20% off of it PLUS all of the other perks everyone else is telling you about! Sounds like a deal to me, even if you weren't sure about it!

Good Luck!

Are there online advertising restrictions? For instance I'm with a pink cosmetic company you pretty much can't do ANY advertising online.

I see lots of ads on people's blogs so I think SU allows that, but I don't know for sure.

Yes it's allowed. Recently SU changed the rules so that demonstrators can advertise online (and sell cards online).

Just to be clear, you get the same benefits for your purchases as customers do on all product purchases except the starter kit. If you purchase the starter kit during SAB you get the 20% off and the free any price stamp set, but you do not get SAB sets on that purchase. However, any subsequent orders you place during SAB you would earn SAB products the same as anyone else (1 set for each $50 in orders).

If you are thinking about signing up, it is definetly a great time to do it. With the starter kit being marked down to $159 and also getting your choice of any stamp set free (I recommend getting the most expensive-Define Your Life-unless you really like something else, like an alphabet). Also, it is a good time to do workshops--people are excited about getting something free. You can use the free stamp sets to promote your business if you decide not to keep them yourself. I give a free stamp set to anyone who has a workshop that get's three bookings, and this is a "free" way for me to do that. Also, the So Many Scallops set, which I love because I have the scallop punch, is an upsell opportunity in itself--buy the punch, some paper, and some inks, and get the stamp set to go with it free! Once you sign up, you also get the 30% instant income on your first order, so it is a great way to start your business. A lot of people have an Open House, or a "Jumping Off" workshop. I recommend doing something themed--the kid in us all love themed parties, and it helps build excitement and to let potential customers see how creative you are. It get's them excited about the opportunity to host something similar in their own home. Anyway, if you have any other questions, there are many wonderful people on here willing to help. If you want to see how the new websites look, you can check mine out at www.dyana.stampinup.net . I love the new look that they have given them, and I believe it is $12.95 a month to have them, but the first two months are free. And it is nice, because you can sign up right there, you don't have to wait for a bunch of paperwork to go through the mail. If you're like me, I want it NOW! Just make sure when you are looking for an upline, the person who you would sign up under, that you get someone who will take as much time as you need to explain things, share ideas, and be reachable! If you need any help or have any additional questions, feel free to PM me, or you can even contact me through my website--another great feature the new websites have! I have a lot of additional info. I could give you, but I don't want to hog up this whole thread myself! Good luck to you!

How many catalogs come in the starter kit?

What happens if you don't meet a minimum the first time, the second, etc.

You get 8 of the regular catalogs, plus if there happens to be any mini catalogs going on at the time.

When you sign up to be a demonstrator, your first quarter is actually the first full quarter that you would be an active demonstrator. So, if you sign up in the middle of February, you would actually have the rest of February, all of March, plus the whole next quarter, April 1-June 30. Any sales made during that time period would count towards your first quarter minimum sales. Now, if for some reason you do not make the minimum during that time, or during any other full quarter, you will be put into pending. You have until the end of the first month of the next quarter to make up the shortfall, plus $100 in additional sales. So if you were short of making your minimum be $75, you would be required to submit the $75 + $100 = $175 to get back into active status, by the end of that first month of the new quarter. If you would not make that shortfall + $100, you would be dropped.

Let me assure you, even when I haven't been extremely busy with SU, I still have not had any trouble making minimums.

Oh, and if you didn't already know, SU has a "Stampin Start" program too. This helps new demos earn free stamp sets based on sales and any recruitment you may do. If you meet all of the requirements, you can earn up to 9 free stamp sets plus a snazzy SU apron. This program lasts your first full 6 months.

Also, they have a Great Rewards program, where you earn points based on sales, recruitment, and promotions. You can use these points to go "shopping" for SU merchandise, and even Visa Gift Cards!

I hope this information helps!
