Mary Kay Office: How to Organize your Mary Kay Business For Success
In 2009 sales of Mary Kay® products reached $2.5 billion in wholesale sales worldwide.*
*according to www.marykay.com/company/companyquickfacts/default.aspx
That is definitely impressive but one of the most impressive facts is that the sales did not take place in the corporate office; every dollar of the sales took place from the home offices of the sales force of Mary©.
So what does it take to succeed in a Mary Kay office?
- A cool dry place to store your products: Your inventory will be made up of items as small as overshadows and vary in size up to a miracle set. You may choose to invest in shelves or pull out drawer storage containers. Portable is always great, so that you can take your products with you to sales appointment and skin care classes.
- You will need space to store your mary kay© showcase and sales aids such as bags and boxes that you deliver products in. Keeping your sales aids and products is a good idea.
- If you have a lot of your customers that are out of town and you mail a lot of product you may want to keep some shipping supplies on hand. Padded envelopes address labels and a scale and make life a lot easier and cut down time, time that you could invest into building your business. Having a postage scale (for around $40.00) will pay for itself in saved gas from trips to the post office in no time!
- Last but not least a one stop office system to hold and track all of your office information like invoices, customer history and inventory levels. QT Office (www.qtoffice.com) was designed exclusively for Mary Kay© consultants and directors to do just that. You will have a user name and password so that you can log on from any computer that you choose.
Remember, your office needs may grow as your business grows. You can change your office size to a larger room; bring in more office storage as your need for more products to service your growing customer base. The one thing you need now is a great customer and inventory system that grows with your business. Your business will always grow as you offer the product to more people, as friends and family refer you to someone who is in need of a consultant. Having a great system will allow you to have instant access to what products you have on your shelf, and not only that but you will also have a product history of each product you can quickly see which customer has purchased the product in the past.
This feature and many more is what has helped so many Mary Kay consultants and Directors grow their business to such great empires.
And remember, Consistency is Key! No one ever got anywhere by giving up.
“I could have only dreamed about having something like this to organize and manage my business!”
