Becoming a Close to my Heart Consultant was one of the best decisions I ever made! I would love for you to join my team, but before you do, I am sure you have lots of questions. Below you will find some of the most frequently asked questions about signing up with Close to my Heart.
In addition to questions about me and my team, I have also been asked a lot questions about the requirements of being a Close to my Heart Consultant and why someone should sign up.
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 New Consultant Kit is $75 (plus tax and shipping) and is valued at approximately $205. You receive all the needed business tools plus $50 in CTMH cash to order supplies that work for you.
What comes in the New Consultant Kit?
You get a ton of great products and business items in the kit. You can see exactly what is in the kit below.
Is there an opportunity for new Consultants to earn free products?
Absolutely! With the “Straight to the Top” program and a little extra incentive from me, you can earn your investment back! If you have $1,200 in orders in your first 90 days, you will get $75 cash back and you will have earned a minimum of $260 in commission and a minimum of $75 in Select Product Credit which can be used to get more CTMH goodies.
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 a discount of 22%-35% depending on their sales for the month in addition to earning up to $75 in FREE product credit each month. Senior Directors and above also earn an additional 5% – 15% of personal override commission ON TOP of the regular commission and free product credit! Your earning potential is unlimited!
What are the sales requirements?
The sales requirement is $300 retail (before your discount) per calendar quarter to stay an active 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 if you sign up today, you have until the end of December 2014 to enjoy the full discount if you choose. Then if you do not have a total of $300 in orders from October – December, you simply drop and are no longer a Consultant.
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 lots of great videos. There is an entire listening library of recorded conference calls, bulletin boards for artwork, business, templates, Swaps, Mentoring, and more. They have pre-designed projects and workshops for us to use. There are annual events such as Local “Rediscover” Events, annual Crop Weekends, 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 much is it to have a website?
All Consultants now have FREE websites, so your friends and customers can place orders online, 24 hours a day!
Can Consultants send out newsletters?
You bet! CTMH also provides all Consultants with free, professionally designed monthly newsletters, making it easier than ever to communicate with your customers.
How do you sign up?
You can sign up at my website here. It will take you less than 5 minutes and your New Consultant Kit will be sent out to you right away.
How long will it take to receive my kit?
They have been shipping them out very quickly. They typically ship in 1-2 days of receiving your online application. You will receive a Fed Ex tracking number so that you can track your package and know exactly when it will arrive.
Can I contact you if I have questions after I sign up?
Of course. I am available to my team via phone, email, Facebook . 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.
Whatever your reason for signing up, there really is no risk! You have nothing to lose!
Feel free to contact me if you have any other questions. I’d be more than happy to chat with you.
