Should you join Close to My Heart? If you have ever wondered about becoming a CTMH consultant, this is the post for you. I will share why I did, and what it takes to maintain your consultant status.
I joined the world of Direct Sales in 2000. It’s hard for me to believe that was 19 years ago. My kids were little, and we had just moved to Washington State. I did not know any one, and I was new to scrapbooking. So I signed up with a company I had been buying from and I was my best customer!
We were not in Washington for very long, and then we moved back to Oregon. I knew people in Oregon. Through talking to friends and sharing what I did, I was able to build a small but comfortable business. I was not going to quit my day job with it, but I enjoyed the people I had met because of it, and let face it making extra money doing something you enjoy is a huge bonus.
Then in 2014 the company I had been so happy with closed. I didn’t know what to do, so I turned to my customers. I asked them what the wanted me to do. Every single person at my crop that day told me Close to My Heart. So I went home and I got on the Close to My Heart website and I signed up.
I had never seen their catalog, and had never purchased from them . I sure as heck did not know their business model. All I knew was this is what my customers and my friends wanted me to do.
I have never looked back. My group of friends has grown because of CTMH that is for sure. My monthly events are packed with returning faces month after month. I have met some of the most creative and inspirational women at CTMH conventions. It has truly been a blessing.
So what is involved with joining CTMH?
The new consultant kit is just $70 (plus tax and shipping), and has a value of over $200!! You will receive all the essential business tools you need to get started Plus $50 in FREE CTMH cash to spend on select products to help you get your business off to a strong start.
You will also receive a 22% discount on all your products orders. It is your decision if you want to take that as a monthly commission or as a deduction from your order total at the time you place your order. But you can earn even more! Based on your monthly sales you will earn anywhere from $5.00 CTMH cash up to $75.00 CTMH cash. Plus you can earn an additional 8% override commission when you monthly sales reach $1,000. 11% override when you monthly sales reach $2,000 and 13% monthly override when your sales reach $3,000 and more.
Besides you commission, new consultant can earn exclusive product when they first start out with the Straight to the top Incentive program. Reach designated tiers in the first 90 days to earn free products and incentive items.
What about minimums? No problem! When you join CTMH the quarter that you join in is a free quarter. Your minimums do not start until the 2nd quarter (calendar quarters) of your consultant status. During you 2nd quarter, you have the full 3 months to have $300 in sales. This can easily be done by hosting one home party or event. Share you catalogs with co-workers, friends and family.
Members of my team also get access to an exclusive team only Facebook group. We can share ideas, ask questions and connect with other consultants.
The question of Should you join Close to My Heart is still there. But in my option, if you like paper crafting, you enjoy meeting new friends and building relationships, and you want to earn some extra income then the answer is YES!
