Thinking About Joining Scentsy?
Let’s make the assumption that you are here because you are looking for more information on joining Scentsy shall we? First of all, I’m here to help. Choosing Your Scentsy Sponsor (that’s the person you sign up with) is really important. Likewise, having a full understanding and your questions answered is vital too.
Because this question comes up a lot when I am talking with people about joining Scentsy, I decided to answer it in an easily searchable and accessible way. Maybe you are worried about how you will be perceived when you ask this? Almost all conversations around joining Scentsy at least briefly touch on the concept of: “Do I have to do parties?”.
Certainly this comes from an underlying niggle of wondering: “Do I have to go to people’s homes and sell them Scentsy?” But more on that in a moment.)
The short answer? No, of course not.
That’s the beauty of being an entrepreneur, the beauty of running your own Scentsy business- YOU are the boss. Within reason you don’t HAVE to do anything.
How much time energy and commitment you dedicate in any day, week, month or year in your business after joining Scentsy is up to you. Likewise, the channels and formats you choose to conduct your Scentsy business through is (within reason) entirely up to you also.
By all means, think outside the box and make building your Scentsy Business work for your individual circumstances.
What Tools & Resources Are There For Me After Joining Scentsy?
After joining Scentsy, you are given access to a complete personal website for free for your first 3 months. Furthermore, even after this point the costs are extremely low for the value having an online presence provides. As a result of having your own Scentsy Shopping site online, you effectively have a Scentsy product portal between you and the world at large. Certainly most Independent Scentsy Consultants freely choose to keep the subscriber service active.
As a result of taking advantage of your own Scentsy personal website, your Scentsy customers can buy their Scentsy products via and have them delivered to their door from anywhere in Australia and/or New Zealand* (*for Independent Scentsy Consultants enrolled in Australia or New Zealand with an active cross border agreement).
Certainly if you are a strong online marketer/networker you can potentially run your business quite successfully using only this avenue. Because we live in an age where online shopping is very much the norm, I personally do quite a bit of “work” from the couch in my pjs, shhh!
Aside From Online: What Else Can I Do After Joining Scentsy?
Online marketing not your strength? Scentsy Basket Parties are another flexible format that is a very popular with Scentsy customers and hosts. Maybe you have someone that is intimidated by inviting large groups of people into their home? Certainly the time poor among us love to take advantage of the fact that a Scentsy Basket party enables their friends/family member/colleague to access a Scentsy Party on the go!
So, what is a Scentsy Basket Party exactly?
You provide your host with a beautiful display basket (or bag) full of Scentsy. Scentsy product samples, order forms, and all the information they’ll need to earn the items on their wish list half price or free! They have 7-10 days to share it with as many people they can, at as many locations as they like. Then they return the basket and completed order forms to you. Finally you take care of the rest.
Easy, and profitable, right?
OK, Should I Do Home Parties After Joining Scentsy?
Absolutely consider it as a tool at your disposal yes. Most noteworthy part of this recommendation? This is coming from someone who had absolutely zero intention of ever doing a home party upon joining Scentsy. Seriously!
Scentsy parties in any format will almost invariably generate more success from less or similar output from you. As a result of opening yourself up to the idea of the home party this is what you gain:
- You walk into a room of people willing to be introduced to/buy Scentsy products.
- You meet pre-qualified potential customers!
- The guests accepted the hostess’ invitation to come to a Scentsy party. They have already decided that they want to see what you have to offer.
- As a result we get the opportunity to discover which Scentsy products fit their needs and build a real rapport/relationship.
- Booking parties from parties also means we will never run out of people to talk to. This is an integral way to ensure your business continues to grow after joining Scentsy.
Furthermore, it’s important to note the fact that someone else (the host) has already done the initial sourcing people interested in Scentsy for you.
Anything Else I Should Know About Home Parties Before Joining Scentsy?
Well, I am so glad that you asked! Here’s the kicker, my absolute FAVOURITE part of doing Scentsy home parties. Remember that I am a total convert. We get the opportunity to change the potentially negative perceptions and/or experiences that customers have developed in the past with other party plan companies.
I get the HUGEST rush when someone tells me that my Scentsy party was unlike anything they have been to before. Rather than feeling badly after attending, they take the time to share they had FUN!
Hence the discovery for as Independent Scentsy Consultants (in the home party setting especially), we need to sell Scentsy to anyone. Instead we get to have a blast, share Scentsy and create a memorable experience all involved. That feeling is what makes Scentsy, easy, fun and hugely rewarding!
Give the idea of the Home Party a chance after joining Scentsy. Chances are you will love it!
