How to Make $500 Your First Month as a Scentsy Consultant

How to Make $500* Your First Month as a Scentsy Consultant

The best way to really get your new Scentsy business off the ground is to make some money right off the bat. Why? Well, first, there's no better satisfaction than paying off your Scentsy Consultant business startup costs - everything after that is icing on the cake! And secondly, money is a great motivator and convincer.

I have a Scentsy Consultant friend whose husband was a little less than supportive. Not a hater, just not very enthusiastic about his wife's business. Well, long story short he saw a surround sound stereo system he wanted and his wife said she'd buy it for him with her Scentsy income the next month. He muttered a "yeah, sure" under his breath and forgot all about it. Three weeks later when he saw the new surround sound stereo in his family room he was a believer and is now a very supportive Scentsy husband. 🙂

Earning money really gets some wind in your sails so make a goal to earn enough money to pay for something significant to you - a phone bill, cover a date night or two, a car payment, or even a mortgage - whatever it is, make it relevant to you.

The nice thing about being a Scentsy Consultant is that it's pretty straight forward how to earn money. Make a goal of how much you'd like to earn and it's pretty simple to figure out how you can earn that money. I started with a $500 goal. I chose $500 because it's a great chunk of change that's high enough to really change your finances that doesn't take a massive change in your life to earn.

You can always shoot for more, but I think a check for $500* is a great way to start. That's only 4 parties of $500 each. Remember, parties come in all shapes and sizes.

You can have your own party, you can have a party on facebook in a private group where you livestream you with the products, you can do open houses, basket parties, fundraisers, etc. You get to choose how you like to grow your Scentsy business.  Your determination and creativity are your greatest assets so don't give up on yourself before you've really given it the ol' college try.

Now while you're sharing and helping customers buy Scentsy, remember to invite anyone to join your Scentsy team and jump in with you. When you begin your Scentsy Consultant career you are able to tap into 1 of the 10 ways you can earn money as a Scentsy Consultant and only 2 of those have to do with your own sales. All of the remaining 8 reflect how well you do at growing your team and helping them take care of their customers and grow their own teams! So the fastest way to really grow your income is to keep growing your customer base, while growing and leading a team of Scentsy Consultants, to help them rock their own businesses.

We're cheering for you and have no evidence to think that you can't do this!

Scentsy Scentsational Start

Scentsy Scentsational Start

Launching a Scentsy business can be kind of a crazy experience. I mean, you just started your own business! You are finally your own boss! But that coin has two sides - not only are you your own boss but now it all depends on you! What?!

Okay, pause, before you get sweaty palms, sit - let’s break it down.

First, seriously you got this. Really, I don’t doubt you can rock this. Know this, 1 great party or 2 good parties and you’ve paid off your startup costs. How cool is that? Everything after that is icing on the cake! Seriously, anyone that can turn on a Scentsy Warmer is capable of earning back the $99 you paid to launch your new biz. 🙂 It’s not rocket science it’s largely persistence and determination. We’ve been doing this for more than 9 years and we've seen dozens if not hundreds of people join Scentsy - some rock - others roll, the greatest difference between them is whether or not they stick with it. It’s really all in your hands.

Now, if you’re considering joining Scentsy and becoming a Scentsy Consultant, there are some amazing incentives that can ONLY be earned in your first 15 or 70 days as a Scentsy Consultant and once those days pass they’re gone, you can’t earn them any more. One of the incentives is called the Shooting Star Enhancement Kit. Basically you sell 500 in PRV (approx. $500 USD) and you are then eligible to purchase a great kit of Scentsy products at an amazing price so you get more products you can demo at a party, fair, show, Facebook party, or however you want to use them! And that’s great, but in my opinion there is a far better incentive to focus on to really get your Scentsy business off to an awesome start.

You didn’t ask but I’ll tell you - the single greatest way to launch your business is to take advantage of the Scentsational Start Program. Why? Scentsy has shared the results of research they’ve done that indicates that those who earn Scentsational Start go on to become Directors. Not only that but earning Scentsational Start gives you product credit, an exclusive warmer, recognition at Scentsy Family Reunion, oh, and did I mention product credit?! Level 1 starts with $50 in product credit and that goes up to $225 at Level 3, how awesome is that!?

There are three levels of Scentsational Start and each level can be earned in two different ways. One way is entirely through sales and the other is a combo of sales and recruiting. I’d encourage you to go with the combo just because that puts you in a great position to grow your team and helps you develop habits that give you a foundation for long-term success. After all, you’ve got your sights set on earning a free trip right?! Life as a Scentsy Consultant has taken us to places like Greece, New York, the Dominican Republic, Cancun, Nashville, and more - for free. I have yet to meet someone who hates free travel. 🙂

Now, let’s take a quick walk through it. The chart below is pretty self-explanatory but let me add some details. First, notice that if you earn Scentsational Start Level 1 through sales you have also earned the Shooting Star Kit AND promoted to Certified Consultant AND entirely paid off your startup costs AND earned an automatic, permanent pay raise (you go from earning 20% to 25% on your sales). Not bad! Not bad a’tall! 😉

Now let’s look at Scentsational Start Level 2. If you earn Level 2 (either method - the sales or the combo) you’ve done all the same things as Level 1 but if you earn it through the combo method (in 1 month) you’ve double promoted to a Lead Consultant and now tap into 3 of the 10 ways you can get paid as a Scentsy Consultant! In addition to the awesome start you have and the glorious commission check that awaits you, you’ll also be awarded $125 in FREE product credit! That’s more than double the amount awarded for Level 1!

Now, Scentsational Start Level 3. This is by far the Super Supremest way to launch your new Scentsy business! To earn this level you’ve got 70 days to sell 6,000 in PRV - that’s a lot, not undoable but again I’m going to steer you towards the combo method - 3,000 in PRV and 2 Active Consultants. Active means that your new teammates need to sell 200 in PRV (approx. $200 USD) in your first 70 days. Both methods are great but if you earn it with the combo method you are a Star Consultant! That means you’ve moved from Essential to Certified to Lead and finally Star and you’re tapping into 4 of the 10 ways you can make money as a Scentsy Consultant! And, bonus - you’ve just earned $225 in product credit!

So, yeah, it’s a lot of work but it’s by no means out of reach and if you’re going to launch your biz might as well go big or go home and you’re really set up to earn Director AND you get FREE product credit! If this sounds like how you’d like to kickstart your Scentsy business then it’s time to start your own business and become a Scentsy Consultant!
