Come on, downlines, RECRUIT! Be inspired by these numbers! Thank the Lord!
Build a team so her commission checks get even bigger. Cos that's how she gets paid. From you and your downline spending money on orders.
(As far as we're aware, you were never supposed to share commission income publicly. Distributors just kept getting in trouble for doing it. Message seems to have got through, finally.)
Aaaah, Christmas. Every MLMer's dream time. A perfect time to optimise your sales and add stress to the lives of your loved ones. Here's some advice and challenges from various horses' mouths:
Tips for Direct Sellers who know that it’s not too late to sell party plan products as Christmas gifts to increase sales, party bookings and sponsor leads!
🎄🎄12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS DAY-BY-DAY CALENDAR for PARTY PLAN CONSULTANTS 🎄🎄
Let’s start TODAY! 1 day at a time, 12 days in a row…. you can do this! I’ve made this super-simple to follow. Avoid the feeling of overwhelm by just focusing on the 1 step that I have for you TODAY. Promise Me? “Yes, Melanie!” Let’s do this….. together!!
“It’s NOT too late to sell your party plan products as christmas gifts”
🔸 ️DAY 1 – STEP 1 Create a basket of gift-wrapped products to sell & deliver instantly. Stock up and order in your most popular products to add to your basket Use products that you have purchased on discount from your company if you have them as that will increase your profit margin If you are running low on product stock, sell items from your kit and replace them in the new year Choose special offer or bundle deal. E.g. Buy 2 get 3rd ½ off. This offer can be ANYTHING at all that gets YOU and YOUR CUSTOMER excited… be creative, you are your own best GENIUS! If your company has a December special offer for customers, you may choose to simply use that.
🔸 ️DAY 2 – STEP 2 Book 2 or more pop-in Christmas gift shopping home visits from 5+ phone calls to best hosts/customers As Christmas snowballs closer and closer, it does become too late to book successful December parties easily, due to the relentless objections of: I don’t have time I’m too busy before Christmas No-one will come because everyone is so busy before Christmas SO ….. I found that doing a casual drop-in to my best hosts and customers gave me a way to maximize the opportunity to get some last minute Christmas sales in and also start to book new year parties in for hosts that are keen to see the new range or January specials from the company. I called my best hosts/customers and offered to bring the Christmas gifts to them in a casual way, instead of them having to organize a formal ‘party’. People are always more likely to buy products once they have them in their hands and who can resist a bargain as good as my December last-minute special offer? Here’s what I said on the phone to schedule the home visits: Phone Call Script to Schedule a Pop-In Christmas Gift Shopping Home Visit: “Hi Jennifer, it’s Melanie from XYZ Company…. I’m hearing that people are scrambling to get last-minute Christmas gifts and finding it difficult to get time to go to the shops or arrange a party, so I’ve decided to find a way to come to my best hosts/customers like you to make it far easier and I’ve put together a special basket of products only for my best hosts and customers. I’m going to be in your area on Tuesday and Thursday this week with a basket of products that are ‘Buy 2 and get the 3rd Half Price’ and I wanted you to be one of the first that I offer that to…. how about we do a casual drop to your place for just 10-15 minutes on either Tuesday or Thursday so you can see the items that I have in the half price offer as last minute Christmas gifts?” Of course, when Jennifer books her pop-in visit, offer for her to invite a couple of neighbors/family/friends and you may be able to offer host rewards for any sales that come from the visit. ALWAYS offer the opportunity to book in for a new year party. Many companies will offer extra host rewards or super-customer specials in January.
🔸 ️DAY 3 – STEP 3 1 hour+ Office/Industrial Workshop Walk-In Visits with Christmas basket of products to sell (leave invites to Open House)
🔸 ️DAY 4 – STEP 4 Facebook Livestream with basket of products. Promote your offer.
🔸 ️DAY 5 – STEP 5 SMS message to 50+ hosts/customers Use this template for the text in your message. By asking a question in your message you will be able to identify your hot/warm leads and know who to follow up. When you get a reply of either YES/MAYBE, I recommend you immediately make a personal voice phone call to the number while you know they are available and on their phone for best results. “Got a second, [NAME]? Please reply YES/NO/MAYBE…. …. I’m arranging last minute Christmas [YOUR PRODUCT TYPE] gift deliveries. I’m doing a [YOUR OFFER]….. are you interested? Just a quick YES/NO/MAYBE is fine either way. ~ [YOUR NAME, YOUR COMPANY] “ If you are a Mary Kay makeup and skincare consultant, your message to customer Joanne may look like this: Got a second, Joanne? Please reply YES/NO/MAYBE…. …. I’m arranging last minute Christmas skincare & make-up gift deliveries. I’m doing a “Buy 2, get the 3rd item half price” offer …. are you interested? Just a quick YES/NO/MAYBE is fine either way. ~ Melanie, Mary Kay Cosmetics (P.S. Before you complete day 6, Have you done 2 pop-in home visits yet?)(P.S. Have you done 2 pop-in home visits yet?)
🔸 ️DAY 6 – STEP 6 Facebook Messenger Broadcast with offer & Facebook live replay link to 50+ hosts/customers Use the same template as above for the SMS messages. This will increase your bookings, sales & recruits through systems for success, deleting the risk of you leaving potential business untapped due to forgetting any steps.
🔸 ️DAY 7 – STEP 7 Watch Party of your Facebook livestream in your group / page / profile
🔸 ️DAY 8 – STEP 8 Email to hosts & customers incl. photo of you with basket, pop-in home visits, offer, open house invite, FB live replay
🔸️ DAY 9 – STEP 9 Social Media Posts on all channels with news as above
🔸 ️DAY 10 – STEP 10 Hold a Facebook Group Event (posts can follow email news topics as above)
🔸 ️DAY 11 – STEP 11 RSVP Phone calls, SMS & Messenger to follow up Open House Invites & Final Orders/Deliveries
🔸️ DAY 12 – STEP 12 OPEN HOUSE Display Event for shopping & order pick-up. Casual drop in between your chosen hours.
And some special SeneGence challenges:
Let them know you would love to get involved by donating a prize if they hold a raffle and you’ll set up a lippy stand which is lots of fun and great entertainment for the ladies
Two minute business centre demos. Go to your local business centres, real estate offices, travel agencies etc. Ask if there are any women available for a quick revolutionary make up demonstration. Show your stripes don’t come off, explain how to apply, and hand out order forms. You will be amazed at how many sales you can collect in business centres. 💋
Guess who one of the top political donors to Republicans is in Orange County, California? Yep, it's still Ben Kante, 'chief strategy officer' of SeneGence, and husband to Joni Rogers-Kante, founder of SeneGence. He's the number two donor for this region:
Ben “Bennie” Kante has donated $1.35 million this cycle, all to Republicans.
He’s husband to Joni Rogers-Kante, founder of SeneGence, a Foothill Ranch-based multilevel marketing company that makes self-care products, including the popular LipSense line of lipsticks. Kante is chief strategy officer for the 20-year-old company, with his donations sometimes listed out of Orange County and often listed out of a small city in Oklahoma where Rogers-Kante grew up and where the company has a SeneGence distribution center.
More than half of Kante’s donations have gone to Take Back the House 2020. He’s also donated $26,041 to Trump Victory. The rest has gone to state GOP committees and candidates across the country.
Kante donated $2 million in the 2017-18 election cycle, including $1 million to super PAC America First Action, which supports Trump. He didn’t show any donations in the 10 years prior, and his wife gave just $1,000 to the NRCC in 2006 and again in 2007.
The Kante's support for Trump was a deal-breaker for many of us. Maybe it's a reason you decide to stay. Who knows. But it's important to be aware.
Yes folks. Joni Rogers-Kante, the founder of SeneGence, was divinely inspired. G = God in this conversation. And this explains why the SeneGence ranks are all royalty. God told her to. Apparently 🤷🏼♀️. (BTW, that's not word play.)
So yes, SeneGence has a big Christian basis, which is probably more visible in the USA than other countries. Each to their own, and all that. But be aware of the background.
From the tippy top of the triangular structure to bottom, the ranks go:
👑 Empress 👑 Amethyst Queen 👑 Emerald Queen 👑 Sapphire Queen 👑 Ruby Queen 👑 Queen 👑 Emerald Crown Princess 👑 Sapphire Crown Princess 👑 Ruby Crown Princess 👑 Crown Princess 👑 Princess 👑 Princess in Waiting 👑 Duchess 👑 Duchess in Waiting 👑 Countess 👑 Countess in Waiting 👑 Lady 👑 Lady in Waiting 👑 Royal 👑 Royal in Waiting 👑 Maiden 👑 Qualified Distributor
Be on the lookout for these posts on your social media during September 2019. This is what the SeneHuns have been told to say. They're sounding desperate, don't you think? Numbers dropping, hun? 🤔
What to say to your victims, oh, sorry, we mean potential recruits ...
Target being your own boss:
Target work/life balance:
Target family and lifestyle:
Here's what to say to your downline:
SeneGence has finally come out with some new packaging. Initially for Limited Edition colours only. About bloody time, it's gotta be said. (The ShadowSense tubes haven't been helped any, but show you how bad the old packaging still is.)
And yes, it's an improvement (not hard to achieve). Still doesn't look like they employed a professional branding company, but hey, we takes what we can gets, eh?
However. This is going around the distributor groups:
Cult leader status: confirmed ✅
Then there's this FONT ... which is lovely. And costs about £10.
Which looks suspiciously very very similar to the official LipSense 'logo':
Well, maybe Joni drew her own version of this font? Traced over the lines? Or maybe their graphic designer did some tweaking of the font to warp it slightly, to come up with the 'new LipSense logo'. Whatever. 🤷🏼♀️
But the whole 'wet your pants cos our divinely inspired cult leader maybe drew this' thing is ridiculous. Get a grip.
We were thrilled to see SBS reporter Elise Potaka take on multi-level marketing schemes in Australia, and particularly shine a spotlight on SeneGence! Brave salesperson Sally actually signs up for SeneGence, and tries her best to make a go of it ...
You can watch the full segment here. Find out how Sally fares.
If you want to see the fuss the SeneHuns made afterwards on the SBS Facebook Page, you can read (and join in if you like) here.
You can also read MLM Intel's take on the show.
I joined SeneGence a few years ago, knowing that I’m good at selling something I think works. Do I think LipSense works — well, basically it does, but are there other equivalent (and cheaper) products out there, of course.
My problem was the price, and I struggled to get support from friends, and even strangers thought the price was an issue. Of course, I was trying to sell the set of three (colour, gloss and remover that doesn’t remove at all). Yes the FOOPS remover works, but at around $36 for the smallest of bottles, I’d rather customers stick to Garnier, and spend more money on products.
The ‘exfoliation phase’ is a furphy as well. Our lip layers are so thin, and what person has ever heard of a ‘wax build-up’. Just another way to explain the alcohol sting, which you do get used to.
So, you book markets, place ads, and get shopped around by customers who are trying to get the best deal. It’s a time when everyone is selling, but still not as many people know about it.
The bottom line is the MLM or pyramid scheme fact. I know all you Crown Princesses will say “MLM is not a pyramid scheme” — but years ago pyramid schemes renamed themselves MLMs to remove the stigma. If you join and start signing downlines, you earn more the more they sell, and your upline does the same. See? Pyramid.
How does the company stay afloat when so many earn their piece of $17. Yes, the skincare costs more, but why pay astronomical prices on stuff by MLM companies when you can pay less for beauty salon brands with far more active ingredients, sold by a trained professional?
Speaking of active ingredients what on earth is SenePlex Complex? If you Google it, you get flooded with distributors' explanations — so many, in fact, that you can’t find an original. Why has no other beauty therapist heard of this wonder product, nor has any chemist I have spoken to? The product definitely work on SeneGence's fearless leader Joni, who is the entrepreneur who uses Botox and fillers! The only entrepreneur here is Joni, who builds and develops this business. All other distributors are simply 'successful' business women, who don't own their own businesses.
Speaking of Botox etc — why do the SeneGence high rollers insist on using the filters on their photos and videos? That’s not good skincare, it’s clever use of the phone. Some are so full of Botox and their lips are so pumped up it’s ridiculous.
Those who are game enough to video their makeup application, I applaud you. That takes a lot of confidence to do — congratulations. But please, we don’t need a fashion show along with it. Things may look nice but we don’t want to see you admiring yourself.
Also when doing a live video be PROFESSIONAL. Stop saying hello to everyone who jumps on. We don’t care how many people you know, not do we want to hear your private jokes. It is so unprofessional. Simply apply the makeup and concentrate on instruction and information. But then again, these people sign up anyone as distributors, no matter who they are.
I spoke to one single mother with three kids who probably signed up after being told what their high-earning upline earns. Then they find out that 350 PV (points value) is not as described and it's going to cost them over $1,000 to start. Great work signing up a woman who struggles to put food on the table, let alone pressuring her to front load, with no customers.
Don’t get me started on the Yankee singing and dancing included at conferences. And honestly, why does everyone wear their LipSense stripes on their hands at SeneGence functions? To impress Joni? They are all Maidens and above, and get dressed in beautiful gowns — but then add stripes??? They aren't out 'wowing', and can’t sign each other up?! All part of the 'cult look'.
Wake up and smell the roses!
This is a straight copy and paste from notes posted in a senior SeneGence upline's group, about advice imparted by Patty Winter in a training video.
A moment's silence for the tragic emoji abuse ... not to mention the actual contents, which may make your eyes bleed. Sorry about that.
The 'Ignorance on fire' quote is a small section of a quote, which in full reads:
“Ignorance on fire is better than knowledge on ice. But there's nothing more powerful than knowledge on fire.” (attributed to Ivan Misner or Greg Olsen, but who knows 🤷🏻♀️)
Ignorance on fire — is your typical MLM devotee, and what the MLMs want you to be like.
... is better than knowledge on ice. — ie those who watch, analyse and think, but might not do anything.
And the end of the quote, which MLMs never mention: But there’s nothing more powerful than knowledge on fire. (ie knowledge and action).
Ignorance wins every time, in MLM land.
Your Crownless Princesses
