Frequently asked questions about joining Stampin’ Up!
I’m so pleased you are thinking about joining my team. Below you will find answers to many common questions, but do please call 07890 426945 or email me if you have further questions. I am a top UK demonstrator and I have a large team along with more than 12 years of experience. My team, Inspiring Inkin’, is a fabulous community both online and in person, we have regular events across the UK. I would love you to join us!
How much does it cost? The kit costs £99 and you can choose up to £130 worth in products and the kit ships FREE. You can include any items from the Annual Catalogue or the Autumn-Winter Catalogue . You also receive a business supplies kit which includes catalogues, order forms and everything needed to get your business started. For my European Friends the kit is €129 and you get €175 of products.
Who can join?
Anyone over the age of 18 in the UK, France, Germany, Austria or The Netherlands can join my team.
What will I do as a demonstrator?
As a demonstrator you have the freedom just to shop for yourself, or to share your love of paper crafting, creating cards, gifts or scrapbook pages with family and friends; or to start on a journey to find new customer friends and create your own small or growing business.
Do I have to demonstrate?
Everyone who joins Stampin’ Up! is called a demonstrator, even if they don’t demonstrate. It is absolutely fine for you to be your own best customer. If you can reach the manageable quarterly minimums with your own purchases you can simply join and benefit from the discounts and deals yourself. There is no pressure from me as your team leader or from Stampin’ Up! for you to do more than you want to. However I will be there to support you if you wish to build a business.
You are in charge and you set your own targets and goals. Stampin’ Up! offers some great financial and product based incentives to get you sharing and earning so there is lots of scope to earn, promote and be rewarded simply by sharing what you love and the fantastic products.
What is the quarterly minimum?
The quarterly minimum sales target is 300CSV (£275). CSV is a common unit of value throughout all the world markets that Stampin’ Up! operates in. Whenever we talk about sales it is shown in CSV not local currency. Your first quarterly minimum needs to be reached at the end of a full quarter. If you join part way through a quarter you will be given till the end of the next quarter to reach your minimum. The quarters are January-March, April-June, July-September and October December. If you join now, we are in the Jan-March quarter, you will have until the end of June to meet your first quarterly minimum.
What discounts do I get?
On all orders placed you receive 20% discount off the net product total (the total after VAT is taken off). You can increase this to 25% as you progress through the business meeting higher sales targets. You can also earn additional money through volume rebates when your sales grow and if you build a team, you can also earn monthly downline overrides as well.
You can also earn more free and discounted products through the Stampin’ Rewards and Stampin’ Up! promotions and sales. In addition you will also be able to preview and pre-order new products a month in advance of the catalogue launch. This is an amazing benefit, and you get your minimum 20% discount on those purchases too!
What training and support will I receive?
By joining, you will become part of my team Inspiring Inkin’, and I’ll provide you with all the help and support you need but, I will never push or pressure you to do more than you wish to. Whether your goals are to just to support your stamping or craft hobby or you want to build a successful business, I am here to help. I have over 12 years of experience and knowledge and can help you as little or as much as you need.
I offer 1 to 1 training, daytime and evening training events online and in person and get togethers. Online training, videos, facebook groups, business building and as much support as you need. Stampin’ Up! provides a demonstrator website which is full of amazing resources as well.
At my training and events we craft together and share inspiration as well. I offer business topics and skills, so whether you are a demonstrator who has joined just get a discount for yourself or you intend on building a business there will be something to interest you at my team meetings. Inspiring Inkin’ is a fabulously friendly, supportive and active team of people who love what they do and share what they love with others!
Are there any Stampin’ Up! events that I can attend ?
Yes, we have 2 Onstage Stampin’ Up! events, in April and November each year, and of course you have our Inspiring Inkin’ team training events too.
Do I have to hold stocks of product?
No. You will only order items when you or a customer places an order and pays you in advance. So you won’t need to keep stock of products.
What if I decide it’s not for me once I’ve started? Will I be penalised if I quit?
If you decide it’s not for you then you simply stop placing orders. If you don’t meet the minimum quarterly requirement, you will just finish as a demonstrator at the end of the pending month. No penalties, no questions asked!
What should you look for in a Team Leader?
It is really important that you chose the right Team Leader for you. As once you have joined you cannot change you team leader without resigning and waiting 3 months before you can join again. Think about what you want from a Team Leader, make a list of questions and call or email them. Your Team Leader doesn’t need to be local to you. Here are a few questions for you to think about…..
- Is your potential team leader easy to contact and communicate with?
- Are they helpful, friendly, supportive?
- Do they have experience and knowledge of the Stampin’ Up! business?
- Do you want to build a business? If so what type of business building support do they offer?
- Do they offer events and get togethers?
- Do they offer online services and training?
- Are they local to you?
- Do you prefer an online community?
Once you have got your list of questions call for a chat, you need to make sure your team leader meets your needs!
I would love to be your team leader, you can call me on 07890 426945 or email me with your contact details and I can call you.
