It finally happened! For a couple of years, I've been looking.... hoping.... searching for my lucky break in life. Don't we all wish for that? I think I've finally found it!!!!
Because my husband doesn't make a ton of money at his job, I get to help bring in some money and so I'm always searching for ways to make money without going back to teaching school full-time. Last year, I worked at a montessori pre-school where my kids attended and loved it. This year, that job is not working out because of my daughter's kindergarten schedule.
I've tried having an etsy shop and sewing things to sell. I've tried having a blog. All those things take so much time and don't pay well at all. I make about $2 a hour with all those options.
I've been keeping my eyes open for employment opportunities that work with my kids' schedule (and allow me to be home as much as possible) and I am so excited that I found an awesome one! It is an answer to my prayers!
I recently came across a NEW direct sales company called Paparazzi.
They sell fashionable jewelry and accessories at an amazing price. Every product is ONLY $5. The products are so cute and so reasonable that people can't help but buy a ton! Below are just a few of the offerings of the company. (Remember, they are only $5 each!)
(Sets of necklaces with matching earrings for only $5).
Clips (including those with feathers) that have a hair elastic, pin and clip for multiple ways of wearing it.
This business is similar to company like Scentsy, Pampered Chef, Mary Kay, Stampin' Up (etc.) only much better. It is a direct sales company that is just getting started, and as I see it, has the potential for so much growth and success. Of all the direct sales companies that hold "parties," Paparazzi is, by far, the winner - in my opinion. Here's why I think this:
*The jewelry is inexpensive (everything is $5), adorable and current with the trends. The jewelry literally sells itself. People buy a lot of it because is costs so little!!!! Instead of buying one necklace at a store in the mall for $20 and then matching earrings for an additional $10, a Paparazzi customer can buy 6 pieces of jewelry for the same price!!! SCORE!
*The customer doesn't have to make an order, pay for shipping and wait a week to get their things. They can take it home immediately because the jewelry is on-site. And the consultant doesn't have to do deliveries and follow-up with problems that arise from wrong shipments!
*The commission rate on each piece of jewelry is great (45%). So for every piece of jewelry a consultant sells, they make about $2.25. I'm excited to have a party where $500 is sold because I will get to take home over $225 in one night. That's more than I make from my blog for a month!!! At most parties, a consultant will sell between $150-$350 in jewelry. That's $70-$157 for just 3 hours of work. Not too bad! (I'm doing a small town fair in a few weeks and am hoping to make $400 in one day!!!)
*"Parties" are actually open houses. Customers come and go at their own time and own pace. I don't have to say much because the jewelry sells itself. Set the jewelry up, and watch women hyperventilate over the great deal on a gorgeous product they want and already use. No high pressure speeches like I've felt at some Mary Kay and Pampared Chef parties!!!!
*The rules of Paparazzi are very consultant friendly. You can put their product in retails sites. If you already own a business, you can add this to shelves. There are so many fun things I can do to sell this product that I wouldn't be able to do with some of the other direct sales companies.
*Paparazzi is NEW. For those people who join and start building a business, the quick growth they experience now will financially benefit them BIG TIME - especially in a few months (and years). There are less than 750 consultants in the whole company right now. Compare that to a company that has 100,000 consultants who have already done 1,000,000 parties.
*When a consultant books a party, multiple guests want to host a party to receive free jewelry. It has been easy to get parties planned (Because the company is new and not oversaturated the market with their product.) This means more money for you!
*On top of the direct commission a consultant earns when they sell products, they also receive money from people who join their team when they make sales. This is a great chance to be a leader and a friend. There always seems to be promotions for great prizes going on too!
I really could write 10 more reasons I think that me finding Paparazzi is my lucky break and such a blessing to our family. I plan to benefit from all they offer.
I would love you to join my team for offering inexpensive, adorable jewelry to the world. Joining is easy and quick and you can start making money within the week. I have a few "Back-to-School" parties planned. Moms are looking forward to saving money on their teens and tweens by purchasing this jewelry instead of wasting it on mall jewelry. It is a great time to throw some parties!!!!
I am in the process of setting up a support site/blog for anyone who joins my team. It will have many resources to help you build your business. There are already some printables (invitations, drawing slips, etc.) as well as many tips and techniques to build your business. I want to save you time and help you know how to increase your party bookings and sales.
If you live along the Wasatch Front in Utah, I will be holding an open house/party tomorrow (Wednesday, August 10) from 6:30pm-8:30pm at my mom's house in Sandy. You are welcome to come and check it out or talk with me about Paparazzi. Email me at email@example.com for the address and directions, please. I will also be in town all of Wednesday day if you want to meet with me.
Please feel free to visit the Paparazzi website to learn more about the company! The "Opportunities" page has more information about how this company can benefit you financially, how much it costs to start your own business and states the policies and procedures. (Click on the buttons at the bottom).
Please email (firstname.lastname@example.org) me letting me know what you are interested in! I can get you products, have an open house for you or sign you up as one of my team members. If you have questions, please ask. If you want to join as a consultant, my sponsor ID number is #1681. Hopefully, you will see Paparazzi as one of your lucky breaks in life and a blessing (like it is in mine.)
Come aboard and let's help support our families while having fun and looking gorgeous!
