What Kind of Demonstrator Would You Be?
Whether you want to purchase your own stamping supplies at a discount, to earn some extra money from your hobby, or to build a business, Stampin’ Up!® provides you with the opportunity to reach your goals.
There are all kinds of demonstrators, and Stampin’ Up! needs each of them! What kind of demonstrator would you be?
You like the idea of buying stamps and supplies for your personal use at a 20-25% discount and occasionally selling to neighbors, relatives, friends, etc.
You work hard for a short period of time or season to earn a specific amount of money or to achieve a specific goal, and then you maintain minimum orders and sales during the balance of the year.
You love doing workshops and earning extra money when it is convenient. You work a lot some months and very little other months. You will do workshops if they are easy to book, and maybe have a regular group that meets together once a month. You enjoy the rewards that being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator brings, but you don’t plan to make Stampin’ Up! a career.
You view Stampin’ Up! as a viable business with long-term career potential. You pursue a management role, and you want to continue moving up with your Stampin’ Up! career. You love attending Stampin’ Up! events and have close relationships with other demonstrators. You work at your business in a consistent and outgoing manner.
As you can see, this is a fun, flexible business you can build to suit your individual needs and goals!
FAQs about Being a Demonstrator
1. What are the minimum sales requirements?
You only need to submit $300 in sales per quarter. That is less than an average Stampin’ Up!® workshop! Also, you can submit your sales in any increment you wish and still receive your 20-25% discount and commission.
2. What if I want to do this as a hobby and not necessarily a business?
Stampin’ Up! supports all demonstrators, no matter their goals or the level at which they choose to run their business. If you choose not to hold workshops, you can simply place your own orders and/or collect orders from family and friends to equal the $300 quarterly sales minimum.
3. Can I be my own host?
Yes, you can be your own host anytime you want. Invite your family and friends into your home and have a workshop. You will be the host, receiving the host benefits, as well as the demonstrator, receiving your instant income and commission.
4. How much does it cost to get started as a demonstrator?
The Starter Kit is only $99 and is completely customizable. It's the perfect way to get your business off to a great start- your way! The starter kit comes with $125 worth of exclusive Stampin' Up! products that YOU choose and a business supplies pack (valued at $65).
5. How can I make money as a demonstrator?
You can earn money in three ways: instant income (20-25% of each order), monthly volume rebates (4–13 percent of total sales), and monthly team commissions (2.5–5.5% of your recruits’ sales).
6. Do I have to recruit other demonstrators?
No. If you were to recruit demonstrators, you would be paid override commissions on your downline’s sales, but this is a perk, not a requirement.
7. Where will I get project ideas for my workshops? What kind of training can I expect?
Stampin’ Up! provides dozens of training resources filled with project ideas and tips to help you run every aspect of your business, including a quaterly publication called Stampin’ Success, Succeed Weekly e-mails, Demonstrator Support agents, a demonstrator only web site, hundreds of samples, annual and seasonal catalogs, training videos, the Demonstrator Manual, and a Product Guide.
8. Is Stampin’ Up! a well-known, respected company?
Since 1988, Stampin’ Up! has been selling rubber stamps and paper-crafting supplies. In that time, not only have we won industry awards and accolades, but also the loyalty and admiration of demonstrators and customers alike. And that is a trend that we work hard to maintain. You can rest assured that the reputation of Stampin’ Up! will only continue to improve!
9. What if I decide that I don’t like it once I’ve started? Will I be penalized if I quit?
You may choose to stop at anytime, and you will not be penalized. You simply stop placing orders. However, there are many benefits to remaining an active demonstrator.
