Default Stella & Dot

Hi! I would love to give you information on Stella & Dot! Just so you know I live in Phoenix we will be having a team meeting debuting the entire fall collection that just came out over this weekend on July 19, so if you would like to come to the meeting and see the items in person, just PM me and I can give you the address and time. Below are the answers to your questions:

I would like to know the start up cost? Our kit is $199, with that you get to pick $350 in jewels and then after that you can order one of every item at 50% off

Can you earn your starter kit? No

How much is the website? $99 a year or $33 a quarter, you get to pick which way to pay

Do I have to carry inventory? No, just items for display to show at the trunk shows

Do I have to submit my own sales taxes to the state or does the company take care of that? Company takes care of it

How much are catalogs? You can earn the catalogs for free with our business supply credit, when you sell $770 in jewelry in a month you get 5% of that back in business supply credit to purchase the catalogs. If you don't have any credit then it is $22 for 20 catalogs

Who pays for hostess credits? Company

How do reps get paid? Once a week on a Stella & Dot branded debit card that you can use anywhere that Visa is taken, money easily transfers to your bank account if you don't want it to stay on the card

What is the commission? 25%, it goes up to 30% after you sell $2308 in jewelry

What are the companies monthy quotas? There are no quotas as a Stylist, you can sell as little or as much as you like in a month. Once you reach leadership levels there is a small quota you have to make

What type of metals are they? Stella & Dot uses a variety of metals from hematite, sterling silver, gold vermeil, silk, brass, it depends on the piece

Are they nickel free? Yes, everything is nickel free and hypoallergenic

What are the sizes of the braclets? (need med/Lrg, 8 or bigger) Depends on the bracelet, some styles fit small/medium others fit medium/large

How much is shipping for customers and party order? $5.95 for all party orders, if they are ordering on your website it depends on the value of the jewelry they ordered but it ranges from $5.95 to $7.95

How long does shipping take? Super quick! About 4 business days. It is a little longer at the moment because we just had a new line launch, should go back to normal processing by the end of the week

Where is the company located? San Bruno, CA

Who is the founder or ceo of the company? Jessica Herrin, a brillant woman!

How long has the company been in business? Jessica started doing trunk shows in 2004 and the company was known as Luxe Jewels then, the company really ramped up as Stella & Dot in 2008

Will the company let you rep for another company? Yes, as long as it is not another jewelry company. Once you hit Director level you can only rep for Stella & Dot

I would be happy to answer any other questions you have. This is an amazing company that is just getting better and better every year!

I was a home party jewelry consultant for almost 5 years. It was a blast.

If I went back and did it again. I would go with S&D. Their stuff is adorable and they really seem to know how to market. A few of their reps do snazzy marketing vids on YouTube. I like that their company allows that. My opinion is only based on me liking the appearance of their jewelry.

I'd talk to gals live with all the companies you are interested in to learn more first hand. I'd also make sure your sponsor is a good fit for you. Granted your success it up to you, but having the right sponsor is important. Find the companies FaceBook pages and "like" them. This way you can see how the company interact with consumers and projects their image.

Looking for a new company is always fun. You will definitely meet some great direct sales people in your search.

Have fun and good luck. Susanna

HEY SOPHINE,

Above are all of my answers about lia sophia jewelry. I have been with them for 4 years now and truly love this company.
As far as cons, there are not many. We can not sell off our tables nor can we sell retired pieces. We must use them to get bookings!

Our pros our amazing

Hostesses earn 20-40% in free jewelry!
4 items at 85% off
2 items at 50% off

Our supplies are so cheap! Plus shipping for us is always just $3.80.
And all of our jewelry carries a lifetime replacement guarantee! If you are not happy you may return anytime. After 4 months, there is just a $5 handling fee and you get it back in a certificate!

I would love to talk to you more about lia sophia! Let me know if you would like more information
