Apriori Beauty is all about using great products that you love, sharing them with others and getting rewarded for it! Think about the last movie you saw and thought was great.

The Apriori Beauty opportunity is as simple, yet better than sharing a movie or something you love, because you get paid for orders received from your recommendation. And even better, you get paid more when you build a team of people that do the same! Use, Love, Share Apriori Beauty and get rewarded for it!

You hold the power to turn things around

It’s amazing how my Apriori Beauty business in January turned out considering how it began. From the first of the month, I was sick for three straight weeks, disabling me from giving attention to my Consultants and Clients. I had goals I planned on accomplishing, but with everything going on, it didn’t look like that was going to be happening. There was a certain point where I decided I wasn’t going to let January go wrong – I couldn’t control my health, but I could control what type of month my business was going to have. It was time to make something good come out of the month. With a week left before the start of February, I started reaching out to people I had given samples to but hadn’t followed-up with. Just by making a few calls and reconnecting with others, I was able to drum up business, gain new Clients (and orders), and turn a sluggish month into a successful one. I needed to have one thing in my life I could control and that one thing was my Apriori Beauty business. I started off January sick and unproductive, and left it healthy and accomplished. It goes to show that no matter what, you can turn things around – even if you have less than 7 days till the close of the month.

I’m a firm believer in launch parties to jumpstart your new Consultant’s business. There’s an excitement that ignites in your business and it spreads awareness to your friends and family. Unless you announce that you’re starting a new endeavor, it’s likely others won’t know about your business. When I did my launch party, it changed the way I looked at myself doing the business. I announced my business, and it forced me to be productive, and get things moving. This party provides the platform for you to not only share with friends, family, and acquaintances about your Apriori Beauty business, but potentially have them share with their friends and acquaintances. I’ve had guests come to parties of mine (as well as my Consultants’) who would have never tried Apriori Beauty unless they were at the party, hearing about the products and sampling them – and now they’re amazing Clients of mine, and some even became Consultants! You may have a huge turnout, you may just have one person. Either way, utilize that outcome to your advantage. If someone isn’t able to attend, reach out and ask if they’d like to meet one-on-one or try a sample. Chances are, they’re curious and want to know about the products. Not everyone has to host a launch party, but if you’re serious about your business, I encourage you to consider it.

I’m a fan of parties, can you tell? In addition to launch parties, I love hosting Beauty Bars. Presenting can be a daunting task, especially if you’re a newer Consultant and don’t know everything about the products; however, it doesn’t have to be overwhelming. I always tell my Consultants: keep it simple. Whether I’m hosting a party or talking to a friend, I speak from personal experience and reference Apriori Beauty’s product catalog and website when necessary. If you begin rattling off facts, people will zone out. They want to hear the results and what the products can do for them. Yes, there will be people with allergies who are interested in knowing the ingredients. When this situation occurs, I pull out my notebook, which includes a copy of every ingredient and which products they’re located in (courtesy of Apriori Beauty’s Science Center) and we go through the ingredients together. It’s become a major resource of mine and I’ve found that people appreciate that I’m prepared and have an answer for them directly from Apriori Beauty’s website. If we can’t locate that specific ingredient they’re inquiring about, it’s because it’s not found in any Apriori Beauty products (i.e. gluten). When you’re prepared, it adds trust to your relationship with that potential Client/Consultant. Remember, it’s about building relationships. Before a person buys the products or the business, they have to buy you first, and that requires trust.

Twenty-fifteen has already started off great and with Apriori Beauty’s Punta Cana Incentive Trip and the new $49 Starter Kit, my team and I are on fire! Living on the east coast with zero below temps and snow storms, all I can think about is laying on the beach in warm weather and relaxing in the sun with my Apriori sisters. I’m going to Punta Cana in November and I’ve declared I’m going there for free, which means between now and September, my team and I will be working together to grow our businesses and earning our way to that sandy beach. I’ll leave you with one question – where will you be in November? 

Recognizing outstanding retailing results

Melissa Glod | Sr. Consultant from Illinois

Joined: July 2011
Personally Sponsored Clients: 31

Working her way up Apriori Beauty’s Top Retailer lists, Melissa Glod is a consistent Retailer, continuously building her retailing business month-after-month with new Clients.

When I was first approached by my good friend Kathy DeRango about Apriori Beauty’s opportunity, I hesitated. I was working full-time as a hair stylist and between work and family, I didn’t see room for anything new. I had tried the product samples she gave me and noticed a definite improvement in the way my skin looked and felt. Despite my reservations, I registered as a Client and two months later, I took the plunge and became an Independent Consultant. I didn’t know how I was going to fit this new business into my schedule, but I did know that I wanted to share these amazing products with my friends and family.

My retailing business has been a slow growing process due to my schedule. There have been many times where I’ve found myself discouraged because I’m not moving at the pace as some of my fellow Consultants, but I remind myself that we’re all on different paths with different lives, and as long as I set goals and stay positive, I can achieve anything! It’s funny because when I first became a Consultant back in 2011, I felt like I couldn’t do the business because of my full-time job. Flash forward to now, I have my full-time job at the salon, plus a part-time job on the side and my Apriori Beauty business. I’m busier now than I was in 2011, and yet my Apriori Beauty business is doing the best it’s ever done! Proof that despite your schedule, there is room to fit in a little here, and a little there. As long as you’re giving your business the attention it needs to grow, you will get results. It’s like a skincare regimen – if you don’t consistently use the products and take care of your skin, how can you expect it to improve?

Whereas I’m not able to share Apriori Beauty at my salon, I do have previous salon clients that I’ve been able to connect and share with. Samples play a huge role in gaining new Clients and sales. Once I’ve shared with a prospect and have put the product in their hands, I wait a few days and then follow-up with them. Knowing how I can be wrapped up with things and the last thing I would do is reach out and order skincare, it’s important that I’m the one to follow-up with my prospects, not the other way around. They have busy lives and unless I connect with them and ask their thoughts on the samples, I’m probably not going to hear from them. One thing I plan to start doing is coffee dates, which will allow me more time with prospective Clients, and give me more room to share the products. It’s all about stepping outside your comfort zone and not just doing what’s easy. I want take my business to the next level and with that comes commitment and creativity. 2015 is all about staying focused, creating goals, and putting my success out into the universe to be heard.

Apriori Beauty has taught me so much about healthy skincare and anti-aging. I’ve learned the role nutrition plays in gaining healthy skin, as well as the importance of using safe ingredients. Apriori Beauty provides us with endless amounts of tools for learning, not to mention the unbeatable Compensation Plan. As a Consultant, not only do I have access to incredible and effective products, but I also get a rebate on all my personal purchases (in addition to my weekly commissions). I am proud to be part of Apriori Beauty and believe 100% in the products, the Company, and the two lovely ladies (Susan Twellman and Elizabeth Vervynck) who created it!
