I just signed up, what now?

Congratulations on becoming a My Blush Belle stylist! We are thrilled to have you be a part of the family.

This guide has been put together to help you with steps to work smarter, not harder including tips, tricks, and training to get you on your way to a successful start to your new business!

While you are waiting for your starter kit to arrive, here are a few things you can start setting up now to get your business off the ground:

  • Email Address – It is a good idea to have an email address specifically for your business. There are many free email services available. You want an email address that is easy to remember, and that tells a bit about your business. I personally recommend Gmail.  

  • Displays & Presentation Supplies – Table, tablecloth, Peg board displays, or traveling cases, baskets, or plastic tubs are great ways to carry your products… Make sure it is pretty, organized and CLEAN!

With your first week as a STYLIST we are going to focus on building the Foundation for a very stable, successful business.  We will learn the basic practices and tools that will be used in every aspect of your business.

  • Order Business Cards – You will see how important these little cards are to your business! You can order cards in sets of 250 from www.VistaPrint.com. (promo code: VPBC500) Self-made business cards, no matter how great your printer is, cannot compare to professionally made business cards. With companies like VistaPrint there is no reason not to order business cards and they will usually have a promotion going on where you can get them at a very inexpensive price or even free. They will look much better than homemade cards and you will be respected as a business owner, not just someone who works at home. *You do not want to put your home address on your business cards. You would hate for someone to mistake you as a retail store and knock on your door! Instead, put a short line about our business opportunity or hosting a party!

  • Develop Your Work Schedule – You will want to design your “office hours” early. One of the greatest things about our industry is truly the ability to make your own hours. Remember that you get out what you put in – so design your schedule around your life and family, but also your goals. It will make it easier for you to have a schedule, and your clients will know early on what to expect from you. Be sure to include your family in this process! They are the most important! Each month you will want to first write out birthdays, holidays, anniversaries, ball games, graduations, etc. in your calendar.

  • Get out into your TOWN!! – The more people you talk to – the more business you will have! Getting out and talking to people is both fun and rewarding. Check your local newspaper for local events or clubs. Take your children to the park and talk to other moms. Add people as friends on Facebook.

  • WEAR My Blush Belle– wear your items everywhere you go – it’s free advertising and is a great conversation starter!

  • Create a Facebook Business Page – This will help you reach people that you otherwise would never have met. People will share your page with their friends and it’s valuable when your hosts have a party to show their potential guests what cute things they can get! You will also find ladies that are interested in joining your team and being part of this amazing company. After you get 25 people to like your page you can name your url, do it right away and put it on your business card. 
    IMPORTANT* Do your facebook live parties from your wall, but once you have build a following make sure you transition to your business page.

  • Create a VIP Group on Facebook – It’s easy  Post Daily and add your Friends there. Make sure you invite them and don't just add them to add. Give VALUE and Have giveaways!

  • Attitude and Appearance – It is so true what is said about first impressions! When you look like a business owner, you will feel like a business owner. Body language and tone of voice are also very important. Remember these people are inviting you into their living rooms and giving their money to you. Class, honesty, integrity, and being personable are essential elements to building your business.

  • Car Signs or Magnets – Making your car a moving billboard can produce massive results – and is great for tax time! You can also find car magnets at Vistaprint.com. White lettering usually shows up best. Be sure to have some sort of contact info on it whether it’s your email, website, or phone number if comfortable.

  • Always Have Business Cards – Set the goal to hand out 5 business cards each day. When you are out think of all the people you come into contact with: Waitresses, bank tellers, gas station attendants, retail clerks – anybody! Best way to start a Conversation? Give out a Compliment! Genuine Compliment! 

  • Make Your prospect list – This is a list of people you already know. Whether you know them by name or not, sit and brainstorm all of the people you know. It is estimated that each person knows 250 people – you just need to remember them all.

  • Get a Paypal, Venmo, or Cashapp account. This is how you will be paid. Be sure to update your payment method in the back office.

  • Familiarize yourself with your backoffice, website, and company information. I recommend the FAQ section.
