Scentsy Australia Frequently Asked Questions
Q: I’m not really a salesperson. Can I still be good at this?
A: At Scentsy, it’s all about relationships, not hard-sell tactics. If you enjoy socializing and sharing Scentsy products with friends and family, you have all the qualifications you need to succeed.
In fact, the complete lack of sales pressure and the simplicity of our products are the main reasons so many Scentsy customers decide to become Consultants. They find themselves enjoying a party experience instead of having to sit through a typical sales presentation and suddenly realize, ‘Hey — I can do this’! Even brand new Consultants feel comfortable and confident right from the start.
Q: What are the advantages of direct selling?
A: The freedom of being your own boss, the flexibility to set your own schedule and work as many (or as few) hours as you choose, and the limitless potential for success are just a few of the reasons people take up direct selling. And anyone can do it! You don’t need a degree or a background in sales or a big chunk of start-up capital. Direct selling is an easy, enjoyable way to earn extra income.
Q: Why should I join Scentsy instead of another direct selling company?
A: We strive to bring true value to the world and ‘contribute more than we take’ in relationships with our Consultants, customers, and in our communities. We are an active member of the U.S. Direct Selling Association (DSA), an industry organization founded to promote and uphold the highest level of business ethics and service to consumers.
Why is DSA membership so important? Because it means that Scentsy Consultants, Hosts, and customers can be confident about doing business with a company they can trust.
Q: How do I get started?
A: Contact me today and let’s get you all ready to start off running. Starting 1 September 2013 you’ll be able to visit my website and sign up online. We’ll send your Scentsy Fragrance Starter Kit for just $139 (AUD). It includes tester fragrances, business supplies, and demo products. Your Sponsor will help you get started and show you how to make the most of Scentsy’s training and support tools.
Once you join a Consultant’s team, you’ll receive your Scentsy Starter Kit, which includes everything you need to launch your business, for just $139 (AUD)!
Q: How much can I expect to earn?
A: The amount you can earn depends completely on how much time and energy you want to invest. Consultants make 20-25% commission on their own sales as well as additional bonuses on the sales of other Consultants they sponsor. Some of our Consultants opt to sell just enough to get their Scentsy products at a discount, while our SuperStar Directors can make six-figure incomes per year.
Q: What other benefits does Scentsy offer to Consultants?
A: Every Scentsy Consultant gets a free website for three full months ($13/month after that), a free online Workstation to organize and run her or his business, free credit card processing, no inventory to manage, and free shipping on orders over $220.
Q: What kind of support and training does Scentsy provide?
A: At Scentsy, consultants are truly sponsored and mentored, not just recruited. Along with support from your Sponsor and your upline Director, you’ll get access to web-based training tools and an online forum for connecting with fellow Consultants. We’ll send you a New Consultant Start-Up Guide, promotional products, and marketing tools.
Scentsy’s fully-staffed Consultant Support Department is available every weekday from 8:00 to 16:00 (GMT) to answer your questions. We also hold an annual Convention and seasonal training and networking events.
Q: Are there any scripts to memorize or a dress code for parties?
A: Definitely not! We do provide great training tools and advice on how to have a successful party, but the way you run your parties — and your business — is entirely up to you. From formal presentations to completely unstructured gatherings to one-on-one visits, the choice is yours. We intentionally keep our product line and pricing simple because that makes it easy for our Consultants to relax and be themselves.
Q: Will I be obligated to meet any sales quotas?
A: Consultants are encouraged to be engaged and actively participate in their Scentsy Family business. Scentsy processes account cancellations on the 1st of every month for those accounts that have not generated sales resulting in 150 points or more in PRV in at least one calendar month in a rolling three-month period.
Q: What if this just doesn’t work for me?
A: At Scentsy we realize that, even with the best of intentions on both sides, not all partnerships are meant to be. As a Consultant or a Host you’re free to leave Scentsy at any time. There is no cancellation penalty.
When will Consultants be able to sell and sponsor in Australia?
We will open for sales and new enrollments on 1 Sept. 2013
How do new Consultants enroll?
To give new Consultants in Australia the greatest opportunity for success, we’re offering them the option to sign up under a current Scentsy Consultant, or to enroll under Scentsy Family for the first six months. I have been with Scentsy for five years and have an international team in the US, Canada, Germany, the UK, and various APO locations all over the world. I welcome the opportunity to work with new Australian consultants. Learn more about me here. On 1 Sept. 2013 you’ll be able to join my team here.
New Consultants who choose to enroll under Scentsy Family will be encouraged to join another Consultant’s team as soon as they find a Sponsor they’re comfortable with. After the first six months, all new Consultants must be sponsored by another Consultant.
