FAQ's about Joining My Team with Close To My Heart
How much is the consultant kit?
The consultant kit is $49 or $99 depending on if you'd like the essential kit or master kit, plus shipping and tax.
What are the quarterly minimums as a consultant?
As an active consultant you need to sell and/or purchase only $300 per quarter. Easy enough right? I think so. Especially to be able to receive 22% on your own purchases. Gotta love that. CTMH quarters are standard calendar quarters (January thru March, April thru June, July thru Sept and Oct thru Dec) As a new consultant you're given a little extra time on this and you have until the following quarters to start your minimums. Although if you are trying to earn the extra incentives offered by the Straight to the Top you'll want to aim for $300 in your 1st month and $1200 within 3 months to earn FREE Products!!!
Do I get a discount on my own personal purchases?
Yep, sure do... it's a 22% discount. Plus the opportunity for more based on your total monthly sales.
I'm not interested in selling... Am I still able to join?
Of course, there are no obligations to sell. You can join and get this awesome kit and then have a fab discount on all your purchases.
What is the commission structure as an Active Consultant?
As your sales increase, so do your financial rewards!!!! Check it out... Base Commission: Make a sale and you earn a base commission of 22%. Easy Peasy! You don't have to wait to receive a check from Close To My Heart you simply collect the money from the sale, and then remit the product cost to Close To My Heart. For example, if you sold and collected payment at a gathering for $250, you would remit $195 to Close to My Heart and keep $55 for your commission (excluding sales tax and shipping/handling). Pretty cool, huh? If you sell products on your CTMH website then you will receive the commission on the 15th of the following month. Select Product Credit: You will earn SPC each month when you sell at least $150/mo. Override Commissions: As your monthly sales go up, so do your commissions! Once you sell $1,000+ in a month you will receive additional commissions. Up to a possible 35%. Override commissions are calculated by CTMH corp monthly and are paid by the 15th of the following month. Commissions are paid once you have cumulative total or exceed $10. You can even sign up for Direct Deposit and your commissions are paid directly to your account.
What is the commission structure as a Junior Consultant?
If for some reason you fall short from meeting the minimum requirement of $300 per quarter, you will then become a Junior Consultant. If you are on my team and feel like you are going to drop to a Jr Consultant be sure and let me know so I can give you ideas and help to keep you an active consultant. As a Junior Consultant, you will receive a 10% discount on all product orders. To remain a Junior Consultant all you need to do is submit a $100 order each quarter.
What kind of training will you receive as a consultant?
Not only will you receive great materials in your consultant kit, and I send you a "Getting Started 101" PDF that I have put together for my team members, you'll have access to the Online Training Academy. This is best tool available for consultants!!! It provides training which focuses on 5 different areas: business, creative, leadership, personal development and professional development and is a great source for continued training. You can even earn a Bachelors degree, Masters degree & PhD from Close To My Heart. I enjoyed the classes so much I managed to get my PhD fairly quickly. Little did I know you even get recognition for it at corporate events! You will also receive help from me via our quarterly Virtual Team Meetings as well as our active Facebook Group Team page.
What is Straight to the Top?
Close To My Heart wants you to give you FREE products as incentive for achieving the Straight To The Top goals. This is a great way to help consultants set goals and get their new business off to a great start. When you sell/purchase $300 in your first month you will receive $25 in Select Product Credit and when you sell/purchase $1200 in your first 3 months you will earn $75. As an added BONUS I give all my 1st downline an additional $100 in CTMH products from ME when they hit BOTH the Straight to the Top #1 & #2.
Can I earn EXTRA incentives?
Of course you can!!! The first way is with the Straight to the Top incentive (see above). There is even opportunity to win an all expense paid cruise for 2 as well as product credit each month based on your monthly sales. Plus those on my team often get an opportunity to win monthly incentives for various products.
How do I get a CTMH website?
