What’s New with Apriori Beauty?
Apriori is continuing to grow at an impressive rate. When I joined, there were about 700 consultants and that was only a few months ago. There are currently 4000 consultants and counting. Most companies don’t grow at this rate unless you have outstanding products, an experienced management team, and leaders in the field. It is truly inspiring for me to see how Apriori is changing skin and lives!
There are a lot of exciting things to look forward to if you are considering a business opportunity with Apriori Beauty. I am especially excited about the new pharmaceutical grade chemical peel that Candace Keefe developed with the support of Dr. Lisa Karamardian, an OB-GYN. Here’s a brief except from my Apriori Beauty colleague Christine Casey in Oklahoma. With the support of Dr. Lisa Karamardian, an OB-GYN who hears the aging concerns of women on a daily basis, Celloxylin MD products will help "put control of how a woman feels in her own hands." No needles, no knives, just advanced innovative products that replace expensive medical procedures”.
If you’re interested in trying this chemical peel right in the comfort of your home without the hassle of having to go see a dermatologist, be sure to sign up on my website as a free client. There’s a terrific update from Candace Keefe too on my website. Click HERE
What’s new with Me?
I can’t believe it’s February already! It truly feels like I was ringing in the new year with my daughter who insisted on banging pots and pans to celebrate the new year. Celebrating the new year is indeed what I’ve been doing. January was a terrific business month for me with Apriori Beauty and it is my goal to continue the momentum heading into February. I’ve been busy and committed to fulfilling my goals set for 2010. One of them is to be constantly and consistent writing for my blog and building my business. In addition to using this outlet to continue building my Apriori Beauty and other income producing hobbies (see my sidebar), I hope to provide valuable direct sales/business tips for my fellow direct sellers, like you, so we can all benefit. I’ve found one of the best ways to expand your contact base is by sharing your knowledge with others. In addition to emailing tips to you ladies via email, I love social networking sites such as Twitter.
With social networking, it can dominate your time if you don’t use it wisely. As direct seller expert Jackie Ulmer wisely shared, be conscientious of your time on these social networking sites. Are you being productive or just “Facebooking” what you had for lunch. Of course, that doesn’t mean you spam your friends every chance you get with business opportunity either. Keeping a balance between business and personal updates is recommended. Along the way, be sure to provide valuable content for your audience. There are a ton of books on how to get started on Twitter and Facebook. Free content is everywhere, just Google it and you will surely find what you’re looking for, or don’t hesitate to shoot me an email. I’d love to hear from you. There are so many ways to promote your business for free so take advantage of them! If you’re not ready to blog just yet, start with Twitter, as it’s a micro-blogging site and be sure to follow me and I will follow you back @janettestoll.
As always, please stay in touch, forward along this blog to your fellow direct sellers if you think the content is helpful to them, and please share anything cool you find online as I’d love to post it on my blog. Remember, check my blog often as I’ll be updating even more tips/resources!
