Training Tips for Consultants

How to start a consultant with 6 parties everytime and have them on the road to success!

 Adapt to their circumstances to their individual needs.

Show them that you believe in them.

Teach that bookings need to come from those in your program already - no bookings, no business.

Follow the basic steps when signing up a new team member but add your personality.

Aim for a 100% activation rate - minimum $400 retails within 28 days of joining.

Start within a week of getting their kit - keep them excited.

When can they do parties? Sit down with them and their diary.

Start with 6 or more parties - essential for making money straight away.

1st week – training parties.

Establish a business feeling straight away.

Friday night and satudays are most successful party days.

Hold parties close together – excitement, practice, courage, creates momentum.

Attend a minimum of 3 training parties - see what others do and adapt to their own personality.

Teach that they are never partying alone. Let your consultant know they can call you any time.

By the book - follow the party prompt notes, makes their initial parties less scary.

Retraining after 6 weeks – adapt your training to meet their needs. Are they having trouble booking etc.

6 in 2 weeks when starting - again this will create momentum in their business. If they are successful straightaway they are more likely to stick to it.

Have their parties in your diary - so you can call and wish them luck. Again call after party - how did they go, what would they do different, did they meet any sparkles.

Cultivate a team spirit

Constant contact with all consultants - they want to know that you are there for them. Allows you to adapt to their changing needs.

Ring their first hostesses to thank them for their support.


Know her goals – why? Vital for more than 6 parties, attach to ring in sheet. Break them down, how many parties needed, how many a week.

If you can book you can sponsor.

Two bookings a party is a must - for their host to get maximum gifts and for them the grow their business.

Ring in sheet for everyone; must do, goals getting closer. Helps you to track their success and adapt your training to meet their needs.

When goals are reached reward them at training.

Be in control.

Be goal orientated.

Tell them to be themselves.

How did I feel? What did I have to learn?

ALWAYS ASK YES QUESTIONS; don’t say would you like to have a party; say have you thought of having a party yourself?
