10min Business 101
Take a second to print this document out & watch this video. This gives a great perspective about Inventory, business 101 and getting started.
Jog: Let's dig a little deeper
Social Media 101
Create a personal FaceBook group and invite all of your girlfriends. Be sure to send them a personal message afterward letting them know what you're up to and why they were invited. This takes a little time but I promise you, it is worth it!!
Sample script: " Hey Jen I just wanted to give you a heads up that I invited you to my private page for Mary Kay. I will be sharing specific product information, posting tutorials and giveaways. You don't need to participate but if you do have any questions please reach out :)"
Soooo important to remember that personal messages are ALWAYS more effective than a mass post on any social media platform.
Attention: Mary Kay legal is very strict on how we as consultants post on any social media platform. You cannot have a "call to action" or list prices for products.
Our Unit meetings are 7pm every Monday evening over Zoom. These meetings are NEVER required but are a great time to encourage each other, build our community, recognize accomplishments, get prizes, and go over training.

"A Tracked Number Grows"
Incorrect post: "Hey girls, if anyone struggles with dark spots try our Serum Plus C for only $56 this will save you money & time"
Correct post: "Do you struggle with dark spots?? Did you know that you could minimize them with only two products?? The Mary Kay Microdermabrasion for exfoliation and the Serum plus C to lift those spots, brighten and tighten your complexion"

*If you have any questions reach out before you post.
Posting: Did you know that you can schedule your posts for the week at one time?? This is a HUGE time saver.

Shopping Bucks OUr
This is my FAVORITE reward. Here is how it works:
Download the document
Keep track of how many items you are able to check off, calculate your total and email me at the end of each month.
*Must attend Seminar or Career Conference to redeem your shopping bucks.
Give a girl the right shoes & she can conquer the world.
Sales/ Taking Payments
You can take payments however you want. I suggest using an app that doesn't charge you.
I ask my customers to use Venmo, Pay Pal, Check or Cash.
*If you use card use the ProPay app
You are not required to set up a business bank account until you start making commissions.
I would highly suggest you at least have a separate checking & savings account. This makes things easier to keep track of sales.
We make 50% off of everything we sell. Every sale put 40% in your checking
50% in savings to replace what you sold
10% is for incidentals: Bags, gift wrappings, promotional material.
SAVE ALL OF YOUR RECEIPTS to submit to your accountant at the end of the year for write offs.
You have three order options:
Place an inventory order through Intouch Ordering-online order- Create new cosmetic order (shipping is $10.95). I usually try and do a large order once a month to replace what I sold. FYI if you are ever booted out of an order, it is not lost. It is automatically saved and will be under saved orders.
Place a CDS (customer delivery service) Order, for your customer, through your My Customers App on your phone. Mary Kay will fill and ship this order on your behalf(the shipping is cheaper).
Customers can order for themselves through your website. Just remember if they choose this option make sure they click the option to have Mary Kay fulfill it for them. If they click "other" you will need to fulfill it.
If you fulfill an order from your inventory and need to ship it yourself. I recommend using Pirate Ship. This is free and saves you time and money. They give a 20% discount and all you need to do is create a label, stick it or tape it on your package and drop it off at USPS. No lines, no hassle!!
Section 1 is what counts toward production.
Section 2 products don't count. These are samples or items used for your business.
Finding your rythm
The Key to a successful business is to keep consistent
Get your launch event booked.
This is such a great way to invite your friends and family to support you, learn how to lead an event and build your customer base quickly.
Script: Hey Jen! I just wanted to let you know I decided to start a small business with Mary Kay. Since you have always been a huge support to me, I am reaching out for a favor... I'm hosting a kick-off event and really need an audience of friendly faces. No pressure to purchase anything!! However, I am happy to give you a gift just for letting me borrow some of your time. Would a week night or weekend work best?
