"When I love something, I tell everyone"

I used to be the woman with flawless skin who never gave much thought to her face. Even as a teenager going through puberty, my face was always clear of zits. And then three years ago, I gave birth to my beautiful son and everything changed. My skin became greasy and was constantly covered in acne. After going through an endless amount of products that no longer worked for me, I went on the search for a skincare line that was safe, honest, and worked for my face. And then, I came across Apriori Beauty.

A lot of skincare companies don’t want you to know the ingredients they use in their products. Sure, they like to feature the popular and safe ingredients; however, there’s hidden items in these products that we as consumers aren’t notified of. What initially attracted me to Apriori Beauty was the Science Center on the website because it lists and describes every single ingredient found in the products. They don’t hide anything because they don’t have to – all their ingredients are safe and healthy for you! I requested a sample and used it up … every last drop. This was it; Apriori Beauty was the skincare for me. My skin began clearing up and I was getting compliments on my skin, which was especially nice because it’d been a while.

I initially signed up as an Apriori Beauty Consultant just for the discount. If I’m using the products, why not become a Consultant and save some money? People notice when you do something different, and I was no exception. Friends, family, and even acquaintances started asking me what I was using because they were seeing an improvement in my skin. I soon realized that I could pay for my skincare simply by sharing my Apriori Beauty experience with others. Once I opened myself to the opportunity, people started purchasing and my business began growing. Even my husband jumped on board! He’s not only 100% supportive in my business, but he is also one of my best Clients (his current obsession is the ViViD Treatment Oil)! It’s not about selling and pressuring someone to buy; it’s about sharing what you use and love. You’d be surprised at how easy it is to incorporate Apriori Beauty into a conversation. If you’re talking about the weather, relate it to their skin (is the climate leaving their skin dry or oily?) and then discuss your skincare and how it works for you.

Want to know the secret to a successful business? Follow-up! If you don’t follow-up with people, they’ll put those products samples away in a drawer and forget all about them. One thing I’ve learned is that people aren’t annoyed when you follow-up with them. Instead, they’re actually quite grateful and appreciative. When I first started, I was afraid I was bothering them, but that’s not the case. They lead busy lives too and sometimes just need a little reminder.

I’m still new at this, and every day has been a learning experience for me. Between being a Pilates Instructor and Massage Therapist, I see numerous Clients every week and they look to me for advice. It’s refreshing to know I can share Apriori Beauty with confidence and not feel insecure about my skin. When someone asks me about becoming a Consultant, I tell them, “If it’s something you use, it’s a great way to get a discount and if you share it with others, it’s an added bonus.” Use, Love, Share – yes, it’s just that simple.

Recognizing outstanding retailing results

Retailing is my favorite part of being an Apriori Beauty Consultant. As a licensed Skin Care Specialist (Esthetician), I love helping people look and feel their best. Why not do it with the most incredible skincare line out there that gives your Clients immediate results and pays you every Friday?

Networking Events have become a valuable resource for my business, and have been a place where I’ve met a majority of my Clients. I’m involved with my local Chamber of Commerce, where we meet once a week to talk about our businesses and network with one another. I make an effort to step outside my comfort zone and sit next to someone new at every meeting. Each member is allowed to give a 20-second commercial and it’s rare I’m the only skincare representative. It’s crucial I not only make a good impression, but also an effective one that will leave others thinking about Apriori Beauty. Network Marketing has been a powerful and successful source of income for women and my intention is to support other women, not tear them down. So, instead of competing against the different skincare lines, I put all my focus on Apriori Beauty. During my allotted 20 seconds, I share my mission of helping men and women look and feel their best, and let my audience know that if they’re interested, I would love to speak with them afterwards. Sweet, simple and to the point. Another lucrative source of networking is Ribbon Cutting Ceremonies. You’re getting involved with your community, putting your name out there, and meeting a variety of new and different people. Everyone has skin and you never know who’s in the market for new skincare. Wherever you go, always snag a business card from each person you come across, and relay you’ll be following up with them … and then call the next week. I could cover an entire wall with all the cards I’ve collected over the years.

I used to give out product samples like candy; however, now, I only use them as gifts for when I meet with a potential Client. It’s a good incentive to set up a meeting and gets me one step closer to a sale. I’ve found that many people are misinformed when it comes to having a proper skincare regimen. I like to utilize this as an opportunity to educate them on the importance of taking care of your skin and share how Apriori Beauty is an efficient approach to clear and healthy skin. As I’m going through each product, I’m asking the Client questions, such as “what products are you currently using? What are you looking for in a skincare?” and lastly, “What is your budget?” Every Client is unique with different skin, different needs, and different budgets. As an Apriori Beauty Consultant, you want to be attentive to your Client’s needs and provide the best customer service possible. The last thing you want to do is force a product into their hands that they’ll never use. Wouldn’t you rather a happy and continuous customer (who’s saving money by being on auotship!) than a one-time sale?

Apriori Beauty is a rare Company in that they genuinely care about their Client and Consultants and always have them in their best interest. I’m proud to be an Apriori Beauty Consultant and fortunate to have the opportunity to share our incredible products!
