Experience that counts! I have been a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator since 1997 that’s over 22 years and can help you achieve whatever you are looking for as a demonstrator. Whether you join just for the fun and inspiration (& discount), or you are looking to build a part-time or full-time business, I can help you! Stampin’ Up! is my full-time job and my main focus is helping my demonstrator team!
Q. What is the quarterly minimum?
A. The minimum requirement is $300 per Quarter. The Quarters are January – March, April – June, July – September, October – December.
When you join SU, you are already within a calendar quarter, so Stampin’ Up! allows you that first part quarter as a ‘grace’ period. A sort of settling in period for you to find your feet. So therefore, your first quarterly minimums don’t need to be met until the one after. For example, I joined in August, but I had all the way through until the end of December to meet my minimums, and anything I bought/sold during August also counted.
Q. What happens if I don’t meet my minimums?
A. You will be given an extra month to try and achieve them, but if you don’t, you are not required to return anything to SU, you aren’t obliged to do anything more, and aren’t tied in to anything. You will simply go into an ‘inactive’ state, and no longer be able to sell or buy at the 20% discount. However, should you want to rejoin, you can join the same upline immediately by buying a fresh starter kit. But should you wish to go to another upline, you must wait 90 days.
Q. Do my personal purchases count towards the quarterly minimums?
Yes! SU doesn’t mind who does the buying, whether it’s you, your neighbor, or someone else. They will just look at your total figures.
Q. How do I get the discount, and how do I earn commission?
As a demonstrator, you get the immediate 20% discount off the net price at the point you make your purchase through the dedicated demonstrator website. SU does all the calculations for you! If you are selling to someone you receive the same 20% but as a commission rather than a discount.
Q. Can I earn more than 20%?
Yes, from your own personal sales, you can earn up to an extra 15% commission based on your total monthly sales/purchases.
And if you have a team, there’s extra earning potential there too.
Q. I only want to buy products for myself. Is that okay?
Of course! I welcome all people to my team, whether they want to make a business, or get a discount for their own hobby, or anything in between. I appreciate all my team equally, and give as much support as I’m asked for, and as much guidance as needed.
Q. I think I might want to make this a business in the future, but at this stage, I just want to buy a few things for me, is it okay to change my mind as to what demo I want to be at a later date?
Yes! Every person who signs with SU and with my team joins up equally. We are all called demonstrators, even those who don’t actively demonstrate. However, you choose to enjoy your SU benefits is up to you, and should you head down one ‘path’ and want to move in another direction, then I will fully support you along the way.
Q. Can I read the terms and agreement before I sign up?
Yes, and I recommend that everyone does. You can find that HERE
Q. Do I have to have a blog?
No! Having a blog is beneficial, but not essential. You can have a successful business without any online interaction whatsoever. Blogs and social networking are still only a few years old, yet Stampin’ Up! is 25 years old…
Q. Do I have to do what you do?
A – Nope! When you join you are an Independent Demonstrator and can run your business however you want. There are guidelines with Stampin’ Up! Such as not opening a storefront etc. and you must abide by their guidelines.
You may still be asking why you should join and I answer WHY NOT?
