Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
You know the gathering of your girlfriends to buy various products from food to candles to jewelry products.
Well i have atlast joined the team of one and am in the processes of becoming a consultant.

Im sure a lot of you have either hosted a party or attended one so i was wondering if anyone had any tips or suggestions for a new consultant.
Things your consultant has done you loved or hated

 Before I was a MK consultant there was a MK lady that I almost told where to put the mascara.  I was nice but I was losing patience as it didn't matter how many times I told her, she only heard what she wanted to


Quoting Anonymous:

Yikes! I've never done that. Of course I suck at pushy. Usually at my parties we have food, some catalogs, and we just hang out. I answer questions but if you don't place an order it's fine.

Quoting mommadana:

The one really HUGE pet peeve of mine is don't be pushy.  It's ok to offer options for payments or payment plans, but when you tell me to write out a check and tell me to pick a day to cash said check when I've told you I don't have the money..... Yeah.

i hosted a tupperware party a few weekends ago. 

i hate tupperware. well, i don't hate it, but i really don't see the use in spending $25 on 4 bowls or plates, when i could go to the dollar store down the road and get them for a dollar each... and yeah, i know the lifetime warranty thing or whatever on the stuff, but if my house burnt down, the least of my concerns would be replacing my tupperware asap...

anyhow...i just did it so the girl would leave me alone lol...

i've *tried* to sell itworks and scentsy and melaluca (sp? look..i don't even remember how to spell it. that's how awesome i was at it lmao), but i'm a terrible salesperson. i cannot bring myself to hound people about parties, buying/selling, joining a team, etc... but that's just me personally. i have friends that sell the stuff i tried and are awesome at it.

so, i'm no help... but that's my thoughts on it all, if you care ;-)
