A Kit For Success
To become a representative - stylist, in company terms - a starter kit is needed. The “Hello!” kit, priced at only $199, contains both demonstration products and business materials to kick off the stylist’s first few trunk shows. Three pieces of ready-to-wear shapewear clothing are included, two of which can be chosen from a pair of options for a little customization. Business cards, party invitations, order sheets and opportunity brochures to recruit your team members are all included, as well as a branded bag and signs for the show. For new stylists that want to boost their demo selection a bit, the $179 “Shine” add-on kit puts all of the current season’s new selections at their fingertips. For even more products, the $209 “Show” add-on kit offers a generous selection of basics and bestsellers in various sizes for demos.
