How much do you think we pay for samples?
Firstly, samples come in packs. For skincare there are usually 10 samples to a pack. For perfume there are 5. There are packs of 20 latest lip samples... etc.
Each representative receives a HELLO TOMORROW information magazine and a campaign order form. These include pages of special deals on samples, products that are coming in future campaigns, tips on selling and representative only specials.
Specials vary by campaign and by type. Some VERY RECENT examples are: "Receive FREE Anew samples for EVERY customer you serve in campaign *" or, Anew samples $1.25 each pack. Premium Tester Vials (perfume) .90c each pack! Ultra Color Rich Lipstick: Buy one order any for $1... etc.
Next, If people are offloading their samples consider how fresh they are. It's possible that you are paying outrageous prices for packs of stock that is being turned over - always have fresh samples in your beauty case.
Which brings us to: The New beauty case with samples (full of the LATEST make up colors, perfumes and skin care products) is $150.00 for Representatives, payments are spread over 3 campaigns! (I still haven't got round to buying one - my samples live in a cupboard)
So just think! You get to buy any products from the catalogue (and make money depending on the profit level you reach), FANTASTIC "advance order" deals (the complete bronzing set - Island Glow Mousse bronzer, Arabian Glow Bonzing pearls, Arabian Glow Multistylo AND face powder brush was $20.00 - advance order as many as you like), samples at sample prices, FREEBIES (like "heart" perfume RRP $59.99 completely free if we put an order - any order, even $0.05! in campaign 3) and NO INITIAL OUTLAY
ALL FOR BECOMING A REP.
