Counting Our Blessings In November

Halloween is behind us so the next BIG day is Thanksgiving paired with Black Friday, right?  So let’s kick off November with some Thirty One excitement…

Thirty One’s top selling product for years has been the Large Utility Tote…BUT the biggest complaint is the fact it sags when it wasn’t full.  The solution…… The Stand Tall Insert!  And the best part about it is it is on SALE this month!!!!  So let’s check out some of the great ways you can grab one (or more) of these beauties….

#1Have you every thought about being a part of Thirty One?

Have you been crunching numbers to try and figure out YOUR holiday budget?  No time for a part-time job?  You work full-time?  Are a mom taxi 24/7?  What if I told you, you could make up to $1000 and have a debt-free holiday?  Impossible right?  You are thinking not enough hours in your day….. I may be able to help with an investment of $99 by you:  How would you like to solve your holiday gift giving with 40% off our amazing products?  There are TWO Enrollments Kits which are  packed with some of this seasons top sellers – the Retro Metro Bag (my favorite) and the large utility tote which has been a company top seller since it was introduced!   You could grab the kit and use it for gifts….. that is holiday shopping on a budget!

An added BONUS is that during your enrollment month AND the following 4 months of being a consultant you get to earn even MORE!  In addition to your 25% commission, you will earn Wishes Rewards!  Rewards are good for FREE product, business supplies, VISA gift cards or Disney bucks.  You get to pick how you will use YOUR rewards!  Mix and match them to get the most savings this holiday season.

#2Be a Hostess with the Mostess!

I know not everyone is interested in joining our pink bubble – how about hosting your own party?  Did you know for just $200 in orders, YOU can have a qualified party.  You will get $25 in FREE product, 1 half price item and 1 hostess exclusive.  It only takes 6 orders of $35 to have a qualified party?  Thirty One just increased their FREE products for hostesses at the $600 level to $120 in FREE products, TWO half price items and TWO hostess exclusives!  This is super easy to reach since my average parties are about $640.  When you hit a $600 party, you will get double hostess credits this month.  PLUS you can get the Hostess Special which is the Holiday Party Bundle (a Fresh Market Thermal and a Perfect Party Set) for just $40!

I offer home, catalog/online, on the go (at your office or at a local restaurant) along with ever popular Facebook parties.  Which fits into YOUR busy schedule?  I will still send you a hostess packet so you can share it with your friends, family and co-workers.  How many people could you check off your holiday gift list with the free and discounted products you earn for hosting a party?  Maybe even treat yourself to something special.

#3 – Don’t want to join, and not interested in being a hostess…..

How about getting a jump on your holiday shopping with YOUR choice of TWO of Thirty One’s TOP sellers….. Yes, you can pick TWO of your favorite products with this month’s customer special.  With just a $35 purchase, you can mix and match two of FIVE products offered this month at discounted prices!.  Which one would you pick – the stand tall insert to keep your large utility tote from sagging, a littles carry all caddy, a Keepsake Planner, an Essential Storage Tote or the Boutique Backpack?

Would you like to get JUST what you want this holiday season?  Why not send me your holiday shopping list and then tell your hubby, children, significant other to call me and I will make sure YOU get what is on your wish list. Yes, I will set up a gift registry to make sure you get the Thirty One products YOU want.  I would say it is a win – win for everyone, right?

So, who is ready to get started on their holiday shopping?

Have a ThirtyOne-derful day!

Out of the Box Gift Ideas

We are just 18 days from Christmas and I see the panic on the faces of many struggling on what to get those on their holiday list.  I will admit, I had those moments looking for the “perfect gift”.  Having moments where I let the inner gremlins step in bashing those out of the box ideas….

Has your gift giving list grown?  Has your office just decided to hold a Secret Santa?  Are YOUR friends looking for gifts for people in their office or do they know someone who is looking to give gifts to their co-workers or customers?

For those of us in direct sales, I know this sounds OBVIOUS but have you approached them about using YOUR products as gifts.  Now, I don’t mean just hand them a catalog to look through, I mean really help them with their gift giving dilemnas.

I offered my customers this year the opportunity to make their Christmas Wish List.   Remember the wish list of your childhood.  The one where you scoured the catalogs and sale papers making a list of EVERYTHING you could possible want then gave it to your parents who shared it with everyone in the family.

Some created their own list of what they wanted and then told family to contact me.  While others, provided me with a gift list and a few words describing person they needed to buy a gift for.  I then made practical suggestions from our product lines for them.  I know you are all thinking – when do I have time to do that in addition to my shopping, work (full and part-time), kids, etc.  The reality is most will not take advantage of it BUT you could start off by offering it to your hostess or those VIP customers who shop year round with you, never missing an opportunity to share your business with others.

Let’s try it with some of our Thirty One products:

  • Busy Mom, Mom Taxi – what about a Thirty One Hanging Traveler Case bag filled with pens, pencils, note paper, crayons, etc. to leave in the car.  Maybe even a few non-perishable snacks for the kids or an energy bar or two for mom. You never have to hunt for a pen or you can keep the kids busy while in the car.

  • Hubby, Mechanic, Car fanatic – How about an Zip Top Organizing Utility Tote filled with everything they would need to take care of their car?  They can keep everything in the trunk – organized so there is still room for the groceries.

dad's car kit

  • College Student – How about a Large Utility Tote filled with everything they would need in an emergency?  Blanket, jumper cables, first aid kit, etc.  Our daughter got one when she started driving. I know, most people have AAA but honestly sometimes they take FOREVER!  In the dead of winter, would it be nice to have a filled bag in the trunk so when a good Samaritan stopped to offer assistance you had the supplies you needed.  How about filling it with snacks along with a gift card or two.  You will be sending them back to school with food to get through those tough nights of studying..

So, have I sparked any ideas?  Are YOU thinking outside of the box?  Some people will think it is tacky to give a gift of the product you sell but think about how special it will be if it is combined with something they would know you picked out just for them.  I mean we all LOVE our products, why not share them with friends, family and co-workers.

What are you doing for “outside of the box” gift giving this holiday season?  I am still looking for a few gift ideas, how about sharing YOUR best company gift idea with us.

Have a ThirtyOne-derful day!
