If you'd like to know why you should sign up to become a CTMH Consultant, hopefully this post will clarify some of your questions.
- How much does the New Consultant Kit cost?
The regular price is $129 (plus tax and shipping) but if you sign up before May 31st, you get it at 1/2 price for only $64.50!
- What comes in the New Consultant Kit?
You get a choice of 3 different “Choose Me” Options that you can see here. Plus if you sign up in May, you also get the You & Me Scrapbooking Kit for FREE! (That's a value of over $300 depending on which options you choose!)
- What’s the catch?
Other than getting a ton of wonderful products at a great deal and most likely getting addicted to them, there is no catch. You have the opportunity to build a business if you choose, but you don’t have to.
- What if I don’t want to build a business and I just want to get the discount for myself on future orders?
That’s great! A majority of Consultants are Hobbyists or Personal Use Consultants and do not do parties or hold classes or workshops. You are welcome to simply enjoy the discount on your own orders.
- What is the discount?
Active Consultants enjoy the current discount of 22%-34% depending on their sales for the month. In October the compensation plan will change...for the better!!! Can you say, discount AND free product??? I can’t wait!
- What are the sales requirements?
The sales requirement is $300 retail (before your discount) to stay a full Consultant.
- What if I don’t place $300 in a quarter or place any orders at all?
Once you sign up, you have a full quarter to make your sales minimum which means that you have until the end of September to enjoy the full discount if you choose. Then if you do not have $300 in orders, you will drop to Junior Consultant status on October 1st. As a Junior Consultant your discount drops to 10% but you only need to have $100 in orders per quarter. If you do not have $100 in that quarter, you simply drop and are no longer a Consultant. But if you happen to have $300 as a Junior, you automatically jump back up to full status!
- How long will I be a Consultant if I order the kit and then do nothing?
You will be active until September 30th. Then you will drop to Junior on October 1st . Then as of January 1st, you will no longer be considered a Consultant. But our new catalog comes out in August (July for Consultants) and I can tell you, because I have some inside information (wink, wink) that you will be VERY excited that you are a Consultant and are able to order the new products at a discount. So chances are you will not drop! LOL!
- Do I need to give the Kit back if I drop?
Nope. Everything is yours to keep! No strings attached.
- Are you required to maintain an inventory?
Nope. There are so many different products that CTMH actually suggests that you do not maintain an inventory. You can place an order for 1 item or 1000 items, so there is really no need to keep an inventory.
- Does the company offer Hostess gifts? If so, who pays for them?
Yes! CTMH pays for the hostess rewards. And as a Consultant, you are welcome to be your own Hostess and earn more free goodies!
- Does CTMH offer any training or events?
Ummm....a great big YES! There are so many different training options available including an entire Online Training Academy where you can take free online creative, business, and personal development classes. You can even earn your CTMH Bachelors, Masters, and PhD degrees! There is an entire listening library of recorded conference calls, bulletin boards for artwork, business, templates, Studio J, Swaps, Mentoring, and more. They have pre-designed projects and workshops for us to use. There are annual events such as Leadershare and Convention. There is even an 800# that you can call if you have questions. And a ton more! You will never be without help.
- How do you sign up?
You can sign up at my website here. It will only take you about 5 minutes. The hardest part will be choosing which bundled products you want in your kit!
- How long will it take to receive my kit?
They have been shipping them out very quickly. I had a gal sign up on Monday and she got her kit today! That’s only 3 days from the time she signed up until it showed up on her doorstep! But it will depend on where you live.
- Can I contact you if I have questions after I sign up?
Of course. I am available to my team via phone, email, Facebook, and Twitter. I am more than happy to help you get started building a business, or just encourage you if you would simply like to be a Personal Use Consultant .
Feel free to contact me if you have any other questions. I’d be more than happy to chat with you.
Or if you are ready to sign up now, you can find the online application here.
One more great reason to join the Close to my Heart family is that you will make some wonderful friends! This is a photo of me with my two sweet friends Christine and Melissa from our Convention last year. These are two wonderful women that I would never have been blessed to meet if it weren’t for Close to my Heart! It’s more than just a stamping and scrapbooking company. It is a family! *Ü*
