. . . everything you need to know about working your business during the Covid-19 shutdown.
These are all ideas that I have come across that are either copied or I have been inspired by and added to them, and thought may be helpful to the entire Mary Kay Sales Force team. I hope some of these ideas are helpful to you and feel free to share this link with other directors and consultants.
MK Texting Party
Make a list of 10-20 customers, anyone who you think would love free product!
Download the HiHello App to create an invite to the Texting Party - it's FREE! Or skip to Step 3 and use an image. The HiHello App has all of your business information on it and looks professional. Simple to set up!
You can use one of these images below or create your own as an invite. Be sure to add your name, number, email and Mary Kay website on the HiHello App, plus any other information you would like them to see. You can do 4 images and it is SIMPLE!
Personalize the text and add the HiHello Invite link.
Sample Script: Good Morning CUSTOMER NAME, I hope you are staying safe and healthy. Everyone is having to make changes in how they are working and I am doing the same. (You as the consultant make the choice of one of the following or something else) Would you like the chance to shop with me at 50% off/ earn FREE product. I am looking for 5 MK Texting Party Hostesses, would you like more details? (include some fun emojis)
When she says yes, you send her one of the HOSTESS SPECIALS below or create your own.
Sample Script to have hostess send to her friends.
TEXT 1: Hey, I am having a Text Party, would you like to join?
TEXT 1: Hey, I am having a Text Party using this Mary Kay Exclusive technology, it is a Skin Care Analyzer App that scans your skin and recommends what to use. Would you like to like to join?
TEXT 2: Awesome! Here is my consultants Digital Card, click on it and you will see her website and a link to the app... go ahead and browse her site and check out the products. Let her know if you would like to order anything and she will make sure it is perfect for your skin type.
Work FULL-CIRCLE, get the text invite list. You can then follow up with the guests, giving great customer service and sharing ideas with them. Some examples are:
Skin Care Analyzer App - offer them a $10 gift card when they anaylze their skin and share the results with you, plus join your Facebook Group/ Page (give them your FB link)
Ask them what is one thing they would like to learn about aging, skin care or glamour
Share links to our how-to videos
Offer them the chance to hold their own MK Texting Party so they too can get free products
Share the business opportunity
Digital Business Card
Create a Digital Business Card that can be easily shared. There are many apps out there, but I found this to be simple to set up and they see you card with your face within the text.
The HiHello App allows you to have 4 cards - FREE. So you can set up a Business Card and use the other 3 as invites or as invites or something else helpful to the digital world.
Hi Customer, (you can send a personal message).
