I have been a Stampin' Up!® demonstrator for 6 years and have a team of mostly hobby demonstrators. I am based in South Morang, a northern suburb of Melbourne, Australia. If you live in Australia, you can join my team, the South'n Stampers. One of the great things about Stampin' Up!® is the support they give to their demonstrators, creating a lovely 'family' feel. There is no pressure to hold parties, classes or demonstrate unless this is a path you want to go down. I began as a hobby demonstrator purely for the 20% discount off my craft supplies. Gradually I began to teach an occasional class, and even more gradually, to build a team. I have enjoyed my journey with Stampin' Up!® so much, it has helped me to become more confident when meeting new people, and the friendships you make along the way are an added bonus.
Frequently Asked Questions
1.What are the minimum sales requirements?
To be considered active you need to sell a minimum of 300CSV each quarter. In Australia that translates to $440.01 every three months, with quarters finishing at the end of March, June, September and December. You can order in any increments you choose and still receive your 20% discount.
2. What if I want to do this as a hobby and not necessarily a business?
Stampin' Up® supports all demonstrators, no matter what their goals or the level they choose to run their business. If you choose not to hold workshops, you can place your own orders, and/or collect orders from family and friends.
3. Can I be my own hostess?
Yes, you can be your own hostess anytime you want. You only need to place a retail value order of $250.00 to qualify for $25 hostess dollars, which can be spent on Hostess only stamp sets or regular products. Naturally, the higher your order, the higher the hostess dollars.
4. How much does it cost to get started as a demonstrator?
The Starter Kit is $169.00, fully chosen by you according to your needs. You choose $235 worth of current Stampin' Up!® products and you will receive a business supplies pack including 8 catalogues.
5. Do I have to recruit other demonstrators?
No. If you were to recruit demonstrators you would be paid override commissions on your team members sales, but this is a perk, not a requirement.
6. Where will I get ideas and training?
Stampin' Up!® provides dozens of training resources including youtube clips, a quarterly magazine for demonstrators "Stampin' Success", a Demonstrator website, and the annual and seasonal catalogues full of great ideas.
7.What if I decide I don't like it once I've started? Will I be penalised if I quit?
You may choose to stop at any time, and you will not be penalised. You simply stop placing orders. However, there are so many benefits to remaining an active demonstrator.
8.What does the Bronze title mean?
When you sign up as a demonstrator, you receive the title of bronze. Because Bronze is entry-level, there are no requirements to achieve the title. As you build your business, you can advance to subsequent titles by meeting various requirements. When you advance, a certificate will be posted to you.
