Scentsy Update

So, it’s been about 3 weeks now that I’ve been a Scentsy Independent Consultant. I just wanted to do a post with an update on how it is going. I had my launch party about a week after I got my starter kit which was a bit too soon because I didn’t give people enough notice about it. I had no one show up!! It was probably the worst launch party ever!! But, I still ended up getting some orders from some friends and made the $150 minimum that you need in order to close a party sale. Now my next party is next Thursday and at this point I think I have 2 people coming with 2 maybes. I’m starting to think that the whole party thing isn’t going to work out. It’s either that or it’s just the time of year that it is. It’s the end of summer and everyone is busy enjoying the last of it. So I’m really hoping that as the holidays get closer, more people will order from me.

Another reason that I may not be getting a lot of orders is because I don’t think that many people in my area are familiar with Scentsy. Which I kind of don’t understand why because my sponsor lives about 15 minutes near me, so there already was a consultant in the area before me. Maybe she already has most of the area as her customers. I don’t know. But I’m not going to get discouraged by the lack of sales. I just started so I just have to get my name out there and eventually I will have more success.

So I have a question for my readers now: Have you ever tried to sell any of the direct sales products out there? If you had, what is the biggest tip you can give me?


  1. I *hate* selling like this....but I love buying from others who do it, hehe. It's possible your sponsor has a lot of the people in the area already that know about it and it *is* that time of year, so I'm glad you're not getting discouraged.

    Do you have flyers or business cards of some sort? You might want to try putting them up on bulletin boards at grocery stores, etc. If you're a part of any groups (like book clubs, organizations through school, etc), don't be afraid to throw it out there. Don't "spam," per se, or go on and on about it, but it's okay to let people know that there's this really cool program you're selling through now with some awesome products, and maybe they'd be interested in looking. :)

  2. I sold Avon for a tiny little period. I never even bothered with the shows. They are usually a waste of money (you driving to someone's house and only 1 or 2 other people are there) AND eventually you end up with people avoiding you at all costs, once they know you are selling something.

    I did only orders taken by phone and the internet. Those worked best for me.I've also seen people set up a 'garage sale' of sorts, but the signs leading to the sale have said:

    Tupperware, Scentsy, Avon etc...


Leave me some comments! (I do my best to respond to them all!! :)
