All the questions I wanted answers to before I joined Posh:
I am a very cautious and thorough person. I asked my friend a million questions before I decided Posh was for me! These are all the questions I asked but instead of her answers I have written my own since I joined and have had my own journey.
Q: How soon can I earn back my $99? How soon did you earn back yours?
A: You can earn it back with your first party and be paid the next Wednesday. I sold just over $600 at my first party and earned about $120 plus another five percent of the party total because I promoted to Pink in the first month.
Q: Do I need to buy other things to get my business started?
A: No. The new Posh kits come with all of the product you need to get started (and then some), samples to share, little sampling spatulas for parties, a T shirt to wear to publicize your business, a cute box to show off your product, business cards, labels, catalogs, order forms, party invitations, a starter guide, pass along flyers about Perfectly Posh products, pass along flyers about the Perfectly Posh business opportunity, a Posh tote bag, your protégé pin, and your ritual face mask. The only thing you might want to get is some business cards.
Q: Are there monthly quotas? Minimum inventory requirements? Required autoship purchases?
A: No. Perfectly Posh allows you to run your business how you see fit. You do not have to have an on hand inventory. We do not have monthly requirements for activity. To remain an active consultant you must sell $300 every six months. This runs from January 1st to June 30th and from July 1st to December 31st. You are exempt during the six month period that you join within. We do not have any autoship requirements. You can choose what you want to order and when you order it.
Q: How much will my commission be?
A: Posh offers a competitive pay plan that starts at 20% as a protégé. As soon as you have $1,000 in sales (PV) you hit Pink and get bumped up to 25%. It is possible to do this within one month and to never be paid at the 20% (I did this). Once you hit Pink you are always Pink and will always make 25%. You can continue up the ranks of the pay plan to earn more personal commission and to earn commission off of your downline.
You can also earn more if you buy products on sale or use the buy 5 get the 6th free and even party perks and keep them on hand as inventory to sell at full price. Doing this can yield a commission of 61.7% or higher. I am happy to help you more with this or explain it further if you would like.
Q: How does Posh pay?
A: Commissions based on Protégé or Pink rank are direct deposited to your bank account weekly on Wednesday. Pay based on your downline or additional rank will be paid monthly on the tenth and will once again be direct deposited.
Q: Do we get a wholesale price?
A: No. Many times if customers know that you pay a certain price and then mark your product up they will want a discount. By having consultants pay the full price and then receive their commission back on their purchase, this awkward situation is avoided.
For example if I want to buy $100 in product for myself or my inventory, I pay $100 then on the next Wednesday I am paid $25 commission on this sale. Plus I earn $10 worth of perks to use on future orders. So, in total I paid $75 for my product but because I paid full price and did not receive a discount or special pricing I should be able to avoid having customers, family or friends asking for things at "my price."
Q: What resources does Posh have for new consultants?
A: We have the Posh Prep Academy with daily training for the first 30 days and training every 5 days for days 30-90. You will receive a training email every day during the first 30 days.
Along with the training is the Props program. This has specific goals for you to meet by day 15, 30, 60, and 90. For meeting these goals you earn $279 in Free Tools and over $209 in free product.
Q: What rewards and recognition does Posh offer?
Every week we have weekly contests and prizes on our Posh Talk Facebook page. The contests are fun and easy and are all aimed at taking steps to be successful in your business.
We also have our Props for new Perfectly Posh consultants that I explained more in the previous section. By completing your Props you not only set up a successful business, you also are rewarded with a Prep Academy tote bag, $180 credit for product and $180 credit for business tools or Posh gear.
You are also recognized for each rank advancement. When you sign up you will get your Protégé pin and certificate, when you have sold $1,000 in product you will advance to the rank of Pink and receive a T-shirt, pin and certificate. As you continue up the ranks each advancement will give you a pin and certificate of recognition, when you hit Premier you will be receive a super plush Posh robe and it gets even more amazing from there.
At Silver Premier you will be taken on a special trip to Tiffany's. You will be awarded with a Tiffany's bracelet with a Perfectly Posh silver charm. The front of the charm will say Perfectly Posh and the back will have your name and the month and year that you achieved the rank of Silver Premier.
At Gold Premier you will return to Tiffany's to be presented with a 14k gold monogrammed Tiffany's necklace. The charm will have the first initial of your first name. At Platinum Premier you will be given a $1,500 Tiffany's gift card to spend as you like after your special presentation ceremony.
Perfectly Posh consultants also earn Posh Points each month on all of their sales, for attending Posh events, for rank advancements, and for each qualified frontline consultant (your personal recruits that have sold $200 or more that particular month). Your points don't expire and can be spent on anything from a jewelry to trips!
You can also earn a shopping spree for earning the monthly award! If you earn the award 3 times between July 1st and June 30th you will get $500 cash presented to you at a special lunch. If you earn the award 6 times you will get $1000 and if you earn it 9 times you will receive the Annual Award and $2000 cash, plus free airfare to the city that Unconventional is held in that year. Each month that you earn the reward you get a pretty pin and certificate.
What about trips? Every year (lately twice every year!!) Perfectly Posh has The Incentive! The current incentive includes prizes for every rank advancement and the top 75 consultants by rank then Team Volume at the end of the incentive will be going to Costa Rica!! Everyone is set back to zero in the incentive at the beginning of each incentive period so anyone can earn this!
