Direct sales people are scary. They’ve all drank some crazy kool-aid that makes them okay with annoying their friends with cheap products and a cheesy sales pitch. Right? I can’t speak for other companies or other consultants, but that’s not my bag. Maybe because I was so skeptical at first, is why I’m so passionate about the brand now. The truth about Norwex is that the products really do work, they are better for the planet (reducing waste), and they keep us healthier (reducing harmful chemicals). If you know me at all, you’d know that I don’t “buy” in to gimmicks. And I wouldn’t try to promote a product that is crap to my friends or strangers. So, as someone who was not entirely sure of this whole Norwex thing, I thought answering some common questions could be helpful for those of you who felt the same way I did.
Do I have to host a home party?
Nope. There are a few options if you are “too busy” to have a get together in your home. With the availability of technology, you can host a party online in 30 min. You can also try a catalog party for friends who can’t make it, or for anyone who may not be close. However, the best way to spread the word is through the face to face. Typically, the order volume is higher at home parties, which means more free goodies for you! But remember, that’s not always the case.
How much do you make?
Assuming you don’t spend it all on products for yourself, consultants make 35% commission the first day they join. Norwex’s Career Plan also offers management pay for building a working team. It’s a nice chunk of change. Many people start to help pay off a credit card bill or loan, but the possibilities are endless once you get started.
How much does it cost to start?
Starting a Norwex business can cost you nothing, if you choose. Some consultants will order catalogs, basic business supplies (business cards, labels, etc), and order forms. It’s up to you! The awesome thing is that one party will bring in enough sales to cover those expenses, maybe more!
I’ve had bad luck with direct sales in the past. How is Norwex different?
Because Norwex is a mission based company, and our products are sold with the intention of “improving quality of life,” many customers and consultants are 100% happy with their decision to try Norwex. The idea of making homes safer, and leaving the next generation a cleaner planet, tends to ring true with many people who have the same concerns.
What comes in the Norwex Consultant Starter Kit?
Our Standard Starter Kit that includes our premier Mop System and many other freebies. There are also options to “upgrade” the kit if you choose, both options available here. Even if you’re just looking to stock up on supplies for yourself, this is a great discount offered on Norwex products.
Do I have to sell a certain month or make a quota each month?
When you join under the Standard Starter Kit, your quota to earn your free kit with the Mop system is just $2000 in 90 days. So maybe 3 -4 Norwex parties over that time. After that, there are no monthly sales quotas to meet. How do you stay involved with Norwex and keep in good standing? You must sell (or buy) $250 of product in a 6 month period.
What will that cost me, out of pocket?
With your 35% discount, you will be spending $325 a year, or $162.50 every 6 months, or $27 a month, or less than one dollar a DAY to be a consultant. You’d spend more than that on cleaning supplies at the big box store. Norwex makes sense!
