At all of my parties I am asked many questions about the business side of Norwex and I pride myself on helping someone decide if the Norwex business opportunity is a good fit for them, their family, and lifestyle. The decision needs to be a very personal one so I feel that my place is to answer any and all questions to aid in that decision making process. If the decision is made to give the business a try, Great! Happy to have you as a new consultant on my team. If it’s not, still great! You will always be a valued customer and Norwex lover! If you find you have questions I haven’t answered the best way to learn about this is direct from me, I encourage you to use the contact button and reach out.
Why Should I Join Norwex?
Being a Norwex Consultant has so many benefits!
- Meaningful work – our mission has real impact in the homes of our hosts and customers, literally everyone who uses Norwex benefits. In addition, our environment as a whole benefits when using Norwex. You’d be helping “Improve the quality of life by reducing the use of chemicals in our homes.”
- Flexible schedule allows you to work when you want; it’s your decision when you work and when you don’t. I do not miss my children’s events, birthdays, date night, and you shouldn’t either.
- Great income potential – you are paid a very competitive 35% on all your personal sales from day one.
- Incredible team of women and men that truly support each other day in and day out. Our team strives to help one another, it is a culture that has been instilled since day one and I am very proud of that.
- Recognition for your hard work from your team AND corporate Norwex
- Opportunity to develop as a leader
- FUN! Get a night out where you can be “Sue” for a while instead of Mom, mom, mommy, mom, wife, cook, taxi, teacher. You get to get to be you for a couple hours with fun people, dessert, and sometimes even some wine. 🙂
- The best way to Norwex your home is free! Norwex is incredibly generous to their consultants!
- The opportunity to earn free trips to pretty amazing places with the sun shining, beaches and sand! Frozen blender drinks, too. The current incentive trip is to MAUI! Past trips; Panama, Riviera Maya, Hawaii, Costa Rica, and more!
Show Me the Money!
All consultants make a 35% commission (or a 35% discount on products you purchase) whether you are a brand new consultant or have been with the company for years. The average party is about $200 in commission. The more parties you decide to do the more $$ you make. There is also a second stream of income with Norwex; an 8 level leadership plan that you can progress through to earn even more as you grow and support your team! You will have the support of your leader along your journey.
What are the Minimum Requirements?
To remain a consultant with full privileges you only need to submit $250 in retail sales in a rolling 3 month period. If you are buying for your own home that is only $162.50 with your discount. The average party is $550 so this is hardly a minimum at all. There is no renewal fee as long as you meet this minimum requirement. Should your account go “dormant” you have 6 months of dormancy where you can reactivate for $19.99 and have full privileges again.
So How Much Will This Cost Me to Get Started?
Norwex is a completely debt free company and they have the ability to be incredibly generous. The cost to get started is just $9.99 plus tax to cover shipping and your kit is FREE! Norwex gives you 90 days to sell $2000 in product. Now, don’t freak out – $2000 in sales is just 3-4 average parties over 3 months! Just commit to try it for 4 parties, who can’t commit to doing something just 4 times?! Personally, I met my $2000 goal is 35 days, it’s totally doable. If you do not reach that $2000/90 days then you just pay $200 for your Party Starter Kit and it’s worth $262.91 in product alone, not including the display bag and all the supplies to get you started! But check this out – remember I said you’re earning commission from day 1 – as long as you sell just $600 in product you have earned the commission to cover the cost of your kit and shipping should you decide it’s not a good fit for you.
What Comes in My Party Starter Kit
The kit is like, wow man! The products in your kit include THE MOP!! AHH! Sorry, didn’t mean to shout, but yeah, it’s that awesome. The Superior Mop System, 2 EnviroCloths, Window Cloth, Dust Mitt, Ultra Power Plus Laundry Detergent, Vintage Body Pack (!!!), Fruit & Veggie Scrub Cloth, a demo size Cleaning Paste (are you kidding me?) and the Bathroom Scrub Mitt. See? WOW MAN! Your kit also includes basics to get you started like catalogs, order forms, invitations, a carry bag for all this awesomeness. It also includes these gems we call Party Cards – literally you could stand in front of your guests and simply read the Party Cards and put on one great party! Norwex makes it SIMPLE to get your business started and begin having success right away!
Do I Get Anything Special for Getting Started This Month?
Oftentimes Norwex will have a special bonus for signing up and we never know what they may be until the 1st of the month. Contact Me to see what this month may be!
Can I Add to My Party Starter Kit?
Certainly! There are 3 optional upgrades available at the time of sign up if you’d like to add more items to your kit. Benefits of doing these upgrades at sign up include only paying the 35% discounted price but the full retail value counts towards your $2000 sales goal, shipping is just $9.99 for your upgrade, you get the top selling products in your hands right away!
Free Stuff? Say What??
The Fresh Start Program is a fantastic way to earn free Product and Norwex branded items completely free for reaching smaller goals along your way to your $2000 in sales in 90 days. The Fresh Start Program is also a business plan of sorts; reaching each of these goals will launch your business with a very strong start. There are a total of 6 steps; 3 for sales, and 3 for recruiting.
- Step 1 Sales – $400 in sales in 15 days
- Step 2 Sales – $1000 (cumulative) in sales in 30 days
- Step 3 Sales – $2000 (cumulative) in sales in 60 days
- Step 1 Recruiting – 1 New team member in 45 days
- Step 2 Recruiting – 2 New team members in 60 days
- Step 3 Recruiting – 3 New team members in 90 days
How Much of a Time Commitment Will This Be?
The average party including set up, demo, check out, and pack up takes about 2-2.5 hours. Set up takes about 20 minutes, give a 45-55 minute demo (don’t worry, remember you can literally just read the Party Cards), and then check out/question time varies with how many guests are in attendance. Computer time setting up and submitting the party, including hostess coaching takes about another 1/2 hour for an approximate total of 3 hours per party. In the beginning there will be time spent on training videos, getting your business ready for your “Grand Opening” and working with your sponsor. It’s really up to you how much time you put into your Norwex business depending on your life and income goals. I decide when I want to work AFTER I plan my family activities, etc. It’s up to you how much you work and you have ultimate flexibility on when you choose to work.
Who Pays For the Host Rewards?
The Norwex hosting plan is so incredibly generous. The average hostess earns $200 in free Norwex! The best part? It doesn’t cost us a dime.
Do I Have To Do Parties?
No, however, the party format is your biggest bang for your time as it produces higher sales and future bookings, even future team members. As long as you stay within the policies and procedures you may sell Norwex via different avenues; one-on-one, Facebook parties, catalog parties, etc. Many people sign up just for the discount and then once they’re using the product they find themselves telling anyone and everyone who will listen all about it. Think of it like sharing your favorite restaurant or a great new movie you just saw – you’re simply sharing what you love about Norwex with people who are there to listen. Plus, Norwex is so incredibly generous to their consultants, you’ll find yourself wanting to earn all of the incentives they offer.
Where Do You Store All of the Inventory?
Uh, what inventory? We don’t have to keep any inventory on hand, everything ships directly from Norwex.
But, What About Market Saturation? Would I be 1 of 62,452 reps in my area?
Nope! We NEED so many more consultants! Norwex is currently in the single digit percent of homes in the US. Single digits. The opportunity here is huge! At our recent Leadership Conference the top 4 leadership levels each placed a pin on the map where they live. Look at all that emptiness. Norwex is still a relatively new company in terms of market share and the product line is an increasingly growing movement not only in the US, but across the globe. Our mission is huge, and until we can go to the grocery store and there is no longer a chemical filled cleaning supply aisle then we continue to need more consultants. There is tremendous potential for growth here with Norwex.
What Kind of Support Will I Have?
I will personally be training and supporting you; to point you in the right direction, to offer additional training as needed, and to be your biggest supporter. I am fully vested in your success and we have amazing team resources as well as all of the Norwex resources at our fingertips. There are local and online team meetings that are a big source of support and networking with others on the team. Norwex offers tons of free training and occasionally will send our Regional Sales Managers into the field for hands on trainings. Our team resources are invaluable. We are part of Planet Green Team and it is an amazing team of consultants who have brilliant ideas to share and are fully in support of one another, we lift each other. When you sign up you’ll get access to all of that and more!
Is This a Pyramid Scheme?
Not at all. We are a multi-level marketing opportunity just like many other direct sales companies selling a real product to real people. Think back to all the jobs you’ve ever had…did you have a manager? Did they have a boss? It’s basically the same thing, except we are all independent business owners. Leaders emerge and help others grow.
What Happens if I Decide Norwex Consulting Isn’t For Me?
If you haven’t yet reached the $2000/90 days then you’ll simply pay the $200 for your incredible kit, you keep all the products you have in that kit, everything you’ve earned for free with the incentive programs, all the income, and continue to have a house full of Norwex. You’ll still enjoy a 35% personal discount while your account is in good standing. There are no cancellation fees or anything like that.
OK, So There Must Be Fine Print
Yup. Here you go.
So, What’s Next?
In conclusion, I strongly feel the Norwex Business Opportunity is an great fit for anyone who is willing to give it a try and is willing to see what happens. Is it magic? No. Get rich quick? Absolutely not. Great way to bring in meaningful money to your household budget? Yes. Amazing journey? Absolutely. Right for you? That’s for you to decide, but I’m here for you every step of the way.
