I’ve had a number of people asking questions about the $25 Starter Kit special and since there is only 3 days left (this offer ends Monday, Oct 21st), I thought I would answer a few questions here on the blog.
- Why would I want to be a demonstrator?
My question is… why wouldn’t you? 🙂
But seriously, if you love crafting…. love sharing ideas and inspiration with others (even if it inspiration you found somewhere else!)… and/or just love building your Stampin’ Up! collection of supplies, this is a great fit for you. When you are a demonstrator, you get discounts on everything you buy, commission off anything anyone else buys, and you are instantly brought in to the community that is Stampin’ Up! demonstrators. There is not only creative support and idea sharing, but there is also a feeling of family where we share and support each other in our lives. It is a way to earn some extra money (whether to help pay for more supplies, or to help pay a family bill) and gain new friends as you share your love of creating with others in classes and workshops. Plus, you run your business the way you want to… push hard or just relax and enjoy the benefits. See more of the benefits here.
- Don’t I have to do a bunch of selling?
First off, whether you are looking to do this as a business, to feed your own hobby, or just to get the perks personally and you don’t want to sell to anyone else, you have over 5 months to try it out! Stampin’ Up! gives you through then end of the first full quarter to make the minimums to keep getting all the perks. So, that means you have until March 31st to sell or buy your first $300 in products. And keep in mind, that is the retail price… anything you buy, you get at least 20% off.
There are lots of specials and promotions to earn free stamp sets and cash if you do decide to sell to your friends and family, but no obligation to do so.
- What do I get in the starter kit?
This special is giving you some basics and access to all the demonstrator resources for only $25. The kit itself includes:
** $25 – $26.95 in product of your choice
** Business supplies including catalogs, order forms, invitation post cards, and more
** And instant access to the demonstrator website, and me as a resource. 🙂
- What should I get in the starter kit?
This is a question I get a lot and it is a bit of a tough one because it really depends on (1) what supplies you already have, and (2) if you are planning on holding classes/workshops or not.
In general, the starter kit I’ve been recommending to go with this promotion (assuming you aren’t just buying your favorite stamp set or framelit set to fill out your collection) includes
** Whisper White Note cards & Envelopes (item 131527)
** an ink pad (or the In Color marker set that is on the clearance rack right now for $5.99 because 4 of the 5 colors of markers are still current colors – item 123002)
** a single stamp (like the Birthday Cake stamp – item 130390)
** a pack of rhinestones (item 119246 ) or candy dots (Item 130933)
- Is there any information or support for me after I sign up?
Heck Ya!There is TONS of support and information for you after you sign up including
**the demonstrator website,
**demo-only forums and galleries on Stampin’ Connection,
**the bi-monthly Stampin’ Success, online demo-only groups,
