Scentsy is coming to Europe – get all the FAQ’s here:
Why should you care? Well, it isn’t everyday that a solid Direct Sales company hailed as the ‘fastest growing party plan company ever’ (per the DSA) opens up a ground floor business opportunity on another continent.
If Scentsy is opening in Europe how will that affect me if I’m a resident of the United States or Canada? Very simply, when Scentsy opened in Canada in October 2009, our – and many other consultants – team grew exponentially. We have one Director on our team in Washington State who has 80% of all their downline from Canada. Without this additional opportunity to expand into another country, their team might not have grown so strong as quickly. If you are a Scentsy Consultant in the USA or Canada you can Sponsor & Recruit new consultants from Europe and really go international! For example: We have a friend in here in Seattle who knows how successful we’ve been with our Scentsy Business. She is an Opera Singer and is moving to Germany with her IT boyfriend in August. She’s lived there previously and has told us that now that we are opening in Europe she will Join our team. Opera Singers always have other jobs and this will be a great way for her to earn extra money while pursuing her passion. Since her boyfriend is a Techie, he will be helping her to market her Scentsy business online. This means that she can start recruiting her contacts who currently live in Germany to sell and recruit this Spring. When she moves this fall, she will already have a team in place which means that WE will have a team in place in Germany. How cool is that? We have other friends who are from Germany and are using our technical skills to find people in the United Kingdom of Great Britain (England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland) who would like to join Scentsy.
Why can’t USA and Canadian Consultants sell Scentsy in the United Kingdom and Germany? There are several reasons why we shouldn’t be able to Sell Scentsy overseas: (1) Germans use the Euro and the UK uses the GBP – the British Pound. Canada and the United States use the Dollar. I can’t even begin to tell you how to convert the Pound and Euro into a Dollar! It is not feasible to expect Americans and Canadians to sell products in all 3 currencies and calculate shipping & taxes. (2) Language can be a large barrier as well. We have consultants in Puerto Rico and even in the United States who speak Spanish and very little to no English and it can be difficult to communicate. I took German in High School but there is no way that I could take an order from someone speaking Deutsch. I could always use the Google Translator to figure out what a German writes, but not speaks. (3) Every country has different policies, laws and regulations regarding product specifications, sales, direct sales companies, recruiting, etc. (4) Can you imagine the phone bills? I don’t know about you, but that would be really expensive! Even if you have a toll-free number, those lines are very expensive! There are other factors involved, I’m sure, but these are the easiest factors to understand.
When can I start recruiting in the Great Britain and Germany? As of today we’ve been told by Scentsy Corporate that it’ll be this Spring but no date has yet been given to us. We can assume that as of March 1st, when our new Spring/Summer Catalog comes out we will have the capability to recruit overseas but, we really can’t speculate. When Scentsy Canada was opening, the initial date set for opening was September 1st, 2009 but due to technical difficulties the date was pushed back to October 1st, 2009. So really, until the system is up and ready I’m not counting on a date!
But I don’t know anyone in Germany, England, Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland! So? We didn’t know anyone in Canada yet have 5% of all Canadian consultants on our team! This occurred several ways? (1) we recruited people who had contacts in Canada. (2) we are nerds! We figured out how to use the internet as a tool to build a team for ourselves in Canada. Also, we have a team in Guam and Puerto Rico and throughout the USA. I’ve never been to most of these locations personally yet we have a large team in Guam!
How can a US or Canadian Scentsy Consultant properly Sponsor & Train someone overseas? The truth is that not all consultants will be able to. You would need to find a Scentsy Consultant who is available and willing to train you, your and their downlines in North America first – in my opinion. Most consultants work their business part-time. Yes, Scentsy will have great training in place for consultants in Europe and there are consultants who can be very successful without the support of an upline. While we are very supportive to our Canadian and Continental US Downline, our Guam team suffers at times. They are 18hrs ahead of us. If we have a Webinar or Team call at 6pm on a Tuesday (PST) then it is Wednesday at 2pm in Guam which is smack in the middle of their work day! We have a team site where we post the recordings of our calls for our team as well as lots of other information we’ve collected to help everyone. I have called our team there at Midnight (my time) so I could accommodate their schedule and ability to chat. I work our Scentsy business full-time and make it a priority to work our my schedule around our downlines schedules. So, my advice to you is to sign up under us, or someone else like us who makes sponsoring their priority. Find out more about Joining Scentsy.
I’m still not sure I’m an entrepreneur and can work from home or, that Scentsy is the company for me. That’s okay. You shouldn’t be convinced to join any direct sales opportunity. You should be passionate about whatever product or company that you represent. Check out all kinds of opportunities before making any decision. To tell you the truth, most people can’t handle being an entrepreneur. Most people need to have a job that they go to where they have a set schedule and plan. I’ve worked from home for 9yrs and the first couple of years were difficult. It is easy to get distracted when working from home. There is always other stuff to do like cleaning, laundry, watching TV, cooking, kids, PTA, errands, etc. I could go on and on because I know all the pitfalls. I was a highly organized and motivated person who was always at the top of their game in corporate America. At home though…I had to re-train myself. It was easy to stay in my sweats all day. I had to give myself set hours to do certain parts of my business, when to shower, kid time, cleaning time, down time, etc. Once you get serious about realizing that you are a business owner and out of the ’employee mentality’ you can become successful in whatever opportunity you join.
