Overcoming an Unsupportive Spouse in your Direct Sales Business!

Posted on

Pink Zebra has been a huge blessing for us! Little did we know that when Roxcee joined Pink Zebra back in January 2012, our lives would be changed by this amazing company that makes these tiny things called “Sprinkles”! Before Roxcee even got her Pink Zebra kit in the mail, we felt that we were on to something special with Pink Zebra, and I had told her to wait to open her kit until I got home so that we could video her “unboxing” the Pink Zebra starter kit!

Every since then we have worked our Pink Zebra business as a husband/wife team, and it has been absolutely wonderful. I can honestly say that we have grown closer over the past 2 1/2 years working Pink Zebra than we did the rest of our 17 years of being married (and about 3 years of high school dating before that!).

But, some of our team members haven’t received quite the support from their spouse as they would like, and believe it or not having the spouses support (usually the husband), can be a deal breaker for your Pink Zebra business (or any other Direct Sales business).

You see, us guys are mostly concerned about ONE thing… MONEY! We want to see the money coming in, instead of all of it going out. The ladies want to see the money too, but usually they are more “creative” and want to have fun with the business, and so they will buy things to help them display their Pink Zebra products, or they will buy cute bags to carry their Pink Zebra products in, etc. Which is fine, but like I said that can cause the guy to question this “business”.

We tell people that if they treat their Pink Zebra business like a hobby then they will get hobby results, BUT if they treat their Pink Zebra business like a BUSINESS, then they will get business results.

Us guys, usually want to see an immediate return on the money or “investment”, but what most guys don’t realize is that it could take 12-18 months to see that ROI (return on investment). The problem, is that Direct Sales is hard enough, and if you have someone that is unsupportive and being negative then you are even more likely to quit/give up WAY before the 12 month mark.

Here is one of our webinars about how to get the husband/spouse more involved with your Pink Zebra business. If you are considering joining Pink Zebra then we would love to work with you and show you how to build a large team, (and show your husband that you CAN make money at this, we are proof!!)

Pink Zebra Consultants Having Fun!

Posted on

Roxcee is one of those “crafty/creative” type people, she was great as a 3rd Grade Teacher for 10 years before finding Pink Zebra, but she still love coordinating and working on “fun” things!

Today we had a private painting party at Paint Your Art Out in Edmond, OK for some of the local Pink Zebra team members to come and paint the Pink Zebra logo!  We had a blast, so much so we would eventually like to travel to other states and do these “fun” team meetings all over the country (which we could now do since we are both working from home full time with Pink Zebra!).

Here is a picture of everyone’s final painting, they turned out GREAT!!! (Roxcee and I are on the back row) :)

We Have The BEST Team in Pink Zebra!!

Posted on

Pink Zebra is the best! During the 2014 Pink Zebra Family Reunion at Nashville, we were able to attend the special backstage party at the Grand Ole Opry before going out to watch the show (which Brad Paisley was the headlining act). This backstage party was for all Managers and above in Pink Zebra, and since Brett is an Executive Manager and Roxcee is a Director we were able to attend.

The founders of Pink Zebra, Tom and Kelly Gaines awarded the new Directors with their custom made Pink Zebra Director boots, and this video clip is of Roxcee after she was awarded her boots. She called Brett up to the mic and they were both overwhelmed by the support of their amazing team.

About 1/4 of all the Leaders in the backstage party came from our team, and you can hear them shouting out when we asked them to raise their hands or shout out!!

We truly do have one of the best team in Pink Zebra, and we love helping our team members do their very best in Pink Zebra!

If you want to be a part of something amazing, fun, and life changing then please contact us NOW!!


5 Tips to Grow your Pink Zebra Business in the Fall

Posted on

With the brand new Fall/Winter 2014 Pink Zebra catalog just being released, we thought we would give some tips to our team about some things they can do to ensure that these next 5 months are really good!

Our 5 Tips for success in your Pink Zebra business this fall are:

1. Plan, Plan, Plan! – Plan everything. Plan some Pink Zebra parties, some Pink Zebra events, plan out your team meetings, plan out your promotion plans, plan everything so that you are making things happen for your Pink Zebra business.

2. Become Organized! – During the fall months you will most likely have more parties and events with your Pink Zebra business, if you don’t keep track of all your contacts, events, etc. then you could be missing out on potential sales and new team members.

3. Follow up! – You must follow up with everyone! Don’t be afraid of the phone, call people! If you have someone’s information and they have expressed interest in either purchasing Pink Zebra or joining Pink Zebra then you MUST follow up with them. Many times people won’t just call you, they are too busy, but if you call them then they may find time to talk about Pink Zebra or place an order with you or even join your team.

4. Help Your Team! – If you want to succeed in Pink Zebra then you must absolutely HELP YOUR TEAM!!! If you help them promote, grow their team then you will benefit, and it’s a win-win!

5. Get Creative! – Offer incentives, or bundle some of the Pink Zebra products to help increase sales.

There is a bonus tip #6 included in the video!

Please feel free to watch the video, it is one of our weekly team calls. We are very active with our team and want to help them all succeed. If you are considering joining Pink Zebra then please contact us NOW! We would love to hear from you! :)

Company Similar to Scentsy | Pink Zebra vs Scentsy

Posted on

Many people have heard of Scentsy, and we often get asked “Is Pink Zebra a company like Scentsy?”.   We also have questions about how Scentsy compares to Pink Zebra, and which company is the best when it comes to Pink Zebra vs Scentsy.

Although Pink Zebra is a company that is similar to Scentsy (in the sense that they both are Direct Sales companies, they both use the party plan method, and they both sell home fragrances), there are some very noticeable differences between both Pink Zebra and Scentsy.

1.  One of the major differences is age.  

Pink Zebra is a little over 2.5 years old (Started in September of 2011).

Scentsy is about 10 years old (Started in 2004).

Pink Zebra is still ground floor, and those that see the opportunity and join Pink Zebra now and WORK their business could be sitting very pretty in several years when Pink Zebra has 10-20 times more consultants that they have today.

2.  Another difference between Scentsy and Pink Zebra is size.

Scentsy is a huge company, with over 200,000 Scentsy consultants worldwide.

Pink Zebra has a little over 16,000 consultants nationwide.

We can’t even tell you how many times we have had Scentsy consultants join our team and say that they are doing better with Pink Zebra in a short 3-4 months than they ever did with Scentsy in 2-3 years.  They tell us that it’s partly due to the fact that they felt there was too much competition to sell Scentsy.

3.  Another signifcant difference between the two companies is their wax.

Scentsy uses a food-grade petroleum based wax.

Pink Zebra uses “SoftSoy” wax, which is a blend of soy and traditional paraffin wax.

This propriertary blend called “SoftSoy” gives several advantages including a stronger scent and longer lasting scent while in use.

4.  Another big difference between Pink Zebra and Scentsy is how the consultant places orders and receives commission.

Scentsy requires their consultants to pay for all products at “retail” cost and then their commission from those sales are paid out when commissions are ran monthly.

Pink Zebra allows their consultants to choose pay for orders either at “retail” or “wholesale”.  If a consultant chooses to pay wholesale cost, then when the consultant sells the products at retail he/she can keep their commission right then.  Even though orders may be paid at wholesale, ALL orders will ALWAYS count as RETAIL for the purpose of monthly personal sales.

——————————————————————————————————————————

We have been in Pink Zebra for about 2.5 years, and I can honestly say that it has been a blessing for our family!  We have consultants on our team from all across the country, so please don’t hesitate to contact us.  We have helped and continue to help many people on our team become leaders from all over the USA.

 



Pink Zebra….It’s Going to Take Time

Posted on

Pink Zebra is a fantastic opportunity!  Being Independent Consultants for Pink Zebra has enabled us to pay off almost all of our debt, travel around the country and to exotic places, and most importantly Pink Zebra has enabled us to both work from home!  Yes, we both work Pink Zebra full time!

It’s very nice to not have a “normal day JOB”, but we didn’t reach this point over night!  It took us a long time of working our Pink Zebra business every day to reach where we are at now, and we still are working to build our Pink Zebra business bigger and bigger in every way possible.  Some people think that Direct Sales or Network Marketing is a get rich quick scheme, and that is the furthest thing from the truth.  The way we see it Pink Zebra and other Direct Sales companies are a “get in and work your butt off really hard and build your team slowly” and get rich plan.

It’s going to be hard, you will have bad party’s or awful events, but just hang in there and keep doing something every single day to work your business and it will grow.  We all want that immediate gratification, and that just isn’t how Direct Sales/Network Marketing is.  You have to build relationships, and network with people.  Follow up with leads, and making lots of contacts helps to build faster.

If any Direct Sales company was “easy” then the entire world would be doing Direct Sales to make money.  It’s not easy, BUT if you work hard and stay with it, then it can be extremely REWARDING!!

SPRINKLE ON!!!  :)


Having a Blast Selling Pink Zebra!

Posted on

Last month we both were able to go on the Pink Zebra incentive trip to Punta Cana, Domnican Republic!  It was absolutely amazing!  Pink Zebra paid for the entire trip (of course we had to work really hard to earn it), and we stayed at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Punta Cana.  There were about 48 other Pink Zebra consultants that also earned the trip, and we all had a wonderful time in a paradise setting!

You may be wondering how we were able to go on an all expenses paid trip by Pink Zebra, and it all started last August when the qualifying period for the trip started.  The qualification period ended at the end of February and we had enough points earned through sales, sponsoring and team member promotions that we qualified to go.

It really was fairly simple to do, we just worked our Pink Zebra business like a business, we did events, parties, and made lots of calls, and emails to people interested in Pink Zebra.

Pink Zebra Makes Perfect “Scents”!

Posted on

Pink Zebra really does make perfect scents, but also Pink Zebra makes perfect sense as a business opportunity too! 

The 3 most importing things to look for in a Direct Sales company are:

1.            Ground Floor Opportunity

2.            Consumable Products

3.            Unique Products

 

Ground Floor Opportunity

Pink Zebra is only a little over 2 years old.  That means that the chances of you getting in and being one of the first Pink Zebra consultants in your area is a pretty high chance!  The ones who see this opportunity and get in and WORK it NOW will be the ones who benefit the most.  We can tell you that personally, we are glad we joined Pink Zebra when we did, but we also are very excited for all our team members that SEE this amazing opportunity and get in and are working their business and already seeing wonderful results!

 

Consumable Products

Why oh why would you want to join a Direct Sales company that doesn’t sell consumable products??  This business is about SALES, and if you sell a bag or piece of jewelry to someone, what are the chances they will need another one in 4-6 weeks?  Having repeat loyal customers is great, and something that could be a little more challenging with non-consumable products.  Pink Zebra has the wax Sprinkles, we also have reed diffusers, as well as soap and lotion, ALL of which are CONSUMABLE.  Also, Pink Zebra’s Simmering Lights shades are interchangeable throughout the year in conjunction with your décor and the seasons!  Which means that in a way they are sort of “consumable”, they can be changed in and out as often as you want!

 

Unique Products

Pink Zebra definitely has unique products!  The SoftSoy wax melts, called Sprinkles are made here in the USA from American grown soy beans!  The Pink Zebra Sprinkles are also stronger smelling and longer lasting than other home fragrances that you may be use to using.  Plus, the Sprinkles can be mixed together to create custom fragrances or unique one-of-a-kind fragrances for you and/or your customers.  You could even create your own custom fragrance and bottle it up in a Pink Zebra jar and sell it as “Suzy’s Special Scent”!  Pink Zebra also has the Simmering Lights, with the interchangeable shades, these are more than simmer pots to melt the Sprinkles and provide a great fragrance throughout your home, and these Pink Zebra Simmering Lights are also a great addition to your décor as well as being a lamp/light for your home.  Some people even use them as night lights!  Almost all of Pink Zebra’s products are unique!

 ———————————————————————————————————————————-

With Pink Zebra you can make 25%-35% commission per month just on your retail sales.  Then with the compensation plan, you have the ability to make even more if you are interested in building a team and growing a business (like we did!), and we can certainly help you achieve that!

So in our minds not only does Pink Zebra make perfect “Scents”, (because all the fragrances smell absolutely wonderful), BUT Pink Zebra makes perfect sense to join and grow a business with the Ground Floor Opportunity, the Consumable Products, and the Unique Products!
