Three (3) Year Scentsy History in Washington
We live in Washington State in the Puget Sound area, in a small Coastal town called Mukilteo which is just 20 miles North of Seattle. We Joined Scentsy in December 2008. At that time, there were only 993 Scentsy Consultants in the entire state. There are 6 Million people in Washington and no one knew what Scentsy was! That means, for every active consultant there were 6,042 people in Washingtonfore each Scentsy Consultant.
Let’s skip ahead to January 2010. We had 2170 Scentsy Consultants. That’s more than double the year before! Now, using the same calculation of 6 million people in Washington, each consultant had 2,764 people to approach about Scentsy. The difference is that at this time we’d run into people occasionally who knew what Scentsy was.
January 2011’s number of Washington consultants grew to 2716. That’s a growth rate of 1.25%. That still leaves 2,209 people in Washington for each consultant to approach. Those numbers are crazy wonderful considering that most consultants are very part time and only have 1-2 parties a month and most aren’t very big recruiters. There are exceptions to the rule, like us, who are top recruiters in Scentsy and also sell and have parties. The big difference for us locally in this area is that there are less people saying “what’s a Scentsy?” than last year but…that’s really a wonderful thing. Think of it like this, I don’t have to work as hard to explain what Scentsy is anymore. There is some name recognition now that wasn’t there before.
Comparison of other Direct Sales Representatives Worldwide
As of today, Scensty has 150,000 Independent Consultants in 2 Countries (the United States and Canada). We just learned that we are opening up in Europe next month in Germany and the United Kingdom (England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland). Do you have Family, Friends, Business Associates, etc. in Europe? This is a great way for you to Join and grow an international team by recruiting those who may have contacts overseas.
This is a very young company (almost 7yrs old) offering a huge ground floor opportunity still. Just imagine what’ll happen when we go global? Will you be a Scentsy Consultant, a Customer or… will you still be looking for some business opportunity to Join while Scentsy passes you by?
Avon is a 125yr old cosmetic company and has 6.2 Million Representatives worldwide in over 100 countries as of today. I’d say that most people around the world know what Avon is at this point.
Nu Skin is a 27yr old cosmetic and nutritional supplement company with almost 1 Million Representatives in 48 Countries.
PartyLite was founded “officially” in 1973. They sell candles, holders, and home accessories. Currently, they have less than 70,000 consultants in 18 Countries.
Now, if you think of growth rates, Scentsy was founded in 1994 (less than 7yrs ago) and now has 150,000 consultants in just 2 countries. Scentsy’s grown by 50k consultants in just the past 7 months! Our products are taking the world by storm and, we’re hailed by the DSA (Direct Selling Association) as being the fastest growing party plan company in history!
I’d rather be on track with a company like Scentsy, whose products we love and use everyday, and build an international team than join either a company that is already a household name with Millions of consultants or a company that isn’t really growing.
What does all this mean for Washingtonians?
Since there are still so few Scentsy consultants in Washington, we get calls and emails asking for us to Host a Scentsy Party, Bazaars, Fairs and Fundraisers East of the mountains in Spokane, Tri-Cities, Yakima and Walla Walla; South (more than an hour away from us) in Olympia, Lacey, Tacoma, Puyallup, Kelso, etc. We even have people who want parties in Seattle, Bellevue, Kirkland, Everett, Lynnwood and Marysville and we just can’t do all this business ourselves! We NEED MORE CONSULTANTS in Washington!
Why not Join Scentsy and take advantage of all the business opportunities available. I mean, if you just had 3 or 4 parties a month (max) you’d average anywhere from $1000-$2500 in Sales selling our products and could make an extra $300 – $800 extra a month for your family. And this is just part-time. Imagine if you also recruited a Hostess or Customer here and there. You’d also make overrides off of your Team’s sales.
We are growing rapidly and this is the very best time to Join Scentsy and start your very own business! You don’t want to be sitting at your computer 2 years from now kicking yourself because your neighbor, best friend, and co-worker are all selling Scentsy as Consultants…under someone else – when they could’ve been in YOUR Team!
Don’t wait. Join Scentsy Today!
