Frequently Asked Questions About Joining Scentsy
I’m not really a “sales-y” kind of person. Can I still be good at this?
At Scentsy, it’s all about relationships, not hard sell tactics. If you enjoy socializing and sharing Scentsy products with friends and family, you have all the qualifications you need to succeed. In fact, the complete lack of sales pressure and the simplicity of our products are the main reasons so many Scentsy customers decide to become Consultants. They find themselves enjoying a party experience instead of having to sit through a typical sales presentation and suddenly realize, “Hey—I can do this!”
What are the advantages of direct selling?
The freedom of being your own boss, the flexibility to set your own schedule and work as many (or as few) hours as you choose, and the limitless potential for success are just a few of the reasons people take up direct selling. And anyone can do it! You don’t need a degree or a background in sales or a big chunk of start-up capital. Direct selling is an easy, enjoyable way to earn extra income.
Why should I join Scentsy instead of another direct selling company?
Everything Scentsy does is based on three core principles: Simplicity, Authenticity, and Generosity. Scentsy is an active member of the Direct Selling Association (DSA), an industry organization founded to promote and uphold the highest level of business ethics and service to consumers. Our affiliation with the DSA means you can be confident about doing business with a trustworthy company.
How do I get started selling Scentsy?
Select Join My Scentsy team from the menu bar and follow the Scentsy enrollment process. Scentsy will send your Scentsy Starter Kit for just $99. It includes tester fragrances, business supplies, and demo products. I will help you get started and show you how to make the most of Scentsy’s training and support tools.
How much money can I earn selling Scentsy?
The amount you can earn depends completely on how much time and energy you want to invest. Consultants make 20%–30% commission on their own sales as well as additional bonuses on the sales of other Consultants they sponsor. Some of our Consultants opt to sell just enough for a little extra pocket money, while our Superstar Directors can make six-figure incomes per year.
What other benefits does Scentsy offer to Consultants?
very Scentsy Consultant gets a free website for 3 full months ($10/month after that), a free online Workstation to organize and run their business, no inventory to manage, no credit card fees, and free shipping on orders over $200 (discounted shipping outside the contiguous U.S.). There are also annual incentive trips and other perks for setting and accomplishing your goals.
What kind of support and training does Scentsy provide?
At Scentsy, Consultants are truly sponsored and mentored, not just recruited. Along with support from your Sponsor and your upline Director (your Sponsor’s Sponsor), you’ll get access to web-based training tools and an online forum for connecting with fellow Consultants. Scentsy will send you a New Consultant Start-Up Guide, promotional products, and marketing tools. Scentsy’s fully-staffed Consultant Support Department is available every weekday from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. (MT). We also hold an annual convention and seasonal training and networking events throughout North America, Puerto Rico, and Guam. In addition to all that Scentsy provides, I have many tools I use to help my team. We have a private team Facebook group, team website, team meetings, team conference calls, and other social media tools to support you. I also schedule 1×1 appointments to meet with you to set your goals if this is something you are interested in.
Are there any scripts to memorize or a dress code for parties?
Definitely not! We do provide great training tools and advice on how to have a successful party, but the way you run your parties—and your business—is entirely up to you. From formal presentations to completely unstructured gatherings to one-on-one visits, the choice is yours. We intentionally keep our product line and pricing simple because that makes it easy for our Consultants to relax and be themselves.
Does Scentsy have any sales quotas?
You’re free to schedule as many or as few parties as you like and sell as much or as little product as you like. Scentsy processes account cancellations every 3 months based on your last order. You will need to sell 150 in product every three months to stay active.
What if Scentsy just doesn’t work for me?
At Scentsy we realize that, even with the best of intentions on both sides, not all partnerships are meant to be. As a Consultant or a Host you’re free to leave Scentsy at any time. There is no cancellation penalty.
