Prepare for Exciting New Changes!

I am SO excited for the new changes coming to Paparazzi.  I'm trying to help my team members make a smashingly good transition to the new improvements to the company.   With so many exciting changes, there is lots of work to be done!   I'm busy changing documents and files, making new training videos and creating other materials to help with the transition.   I want my team members to do better and earn more money supplying their customers with awesome $5 jewelry:)

So excited about the changes!!!!!

Spinning Wheel For Booking Parties

You may want to consider making one of these for parties and events to help you book more parties.   I know events that get alot of people's attention!!!  When they come over and ask what you can win, you can talk to them about hosting an Open House or Boutique.  (Sometimes, a change in wording is all you need to make they want to host a party).     After they set a date on your calendar, they can spin the wheel and get the prize.

What might you write on your wheel?    How about 1-5 FREE pieces of jewelry, free Starlet Shimmer items, half price pieces, 5% more free jewelry at a party, a secret grab bag (that has pieces you want to move), and more.   You can give it to them right then or you can tell them that they will get it at their party.   Your choice.  

Here is a tutorial on how to make a spinning wheel.  It doesn't look too hard.  Find it HERE.

Spinning Display Rack

 I was excited to see that Paparazzi Accessories is now offering this spinning pegboard in the consultant website!  Love it!   The price is very reasonable too!   I love the mirror on the corners.  

I could see this being used for many things - but mostly for starlet shimmer items, bracelets, earrings or clips.
If you have some leftover pegboard and/or want to make one for yourself, you can use this tutorial from Sugar Bee Crafts.  It is a good tutorial that is easy to follow!

10x10 Corner Booth

I recently did 3 women's expo and reserved a corner booth because I heard you can sell more from a corner booth.  Why?  Because you have 2 entrances/exits and can move more people in and out.  These are some things I learned from doing the booths.
Whatever is out in front will sell.  The first day at one booth, we had rings, starlet shimmers, and cuffs.  We sold more than I would have ever sold with them in the back.   We sold so many rings, I couldn't believe it.  (I love how they were displayed.  We spray painted a spool/thread holder and put one ring on each dowel.)   People would stare over the table at the necklaces, but not always go behind the table to look.

The second day, we switched the table to the back and moved a triangle up front with the neutral necklaces, earrings and bracelets.  It opened up the booth a lot.  We sold a ton of neutrals because that is what people say when they were walking by.

Hi!  That's me, Kori Archibald and Emilie Royer!  They are rockstars.  This is near San Francisco where they live.  We sold about $2800 and booked about 13 parties on the spot:)  Yeah for them!  (I think we had taken off some of our accessories before we snapped this picture.)

 This is the table moved to the back.  We did not sell close to the same amount of rings, cuffs and starlets the second day, but we sold a lot more neutrals!!!!

 This is my booth in L.A.  This time I put up a square instead of triangle in the corner.  I actually planned it this time!  We sold a lot of what people could see walking by!    

I put my neutrals out against the isle so everyone can see them.  It think they sell the best.   

If you reserve a cornerbooth, DO NOT close off one side and make only one entrance.   You cannot sell as much that way.  Keep your booth open and flowing so people will come inside and spend money:)

10x10 Inlay Booth

I've had a few people ask me how I set up a 10x10 inlaid booth.   This is a show I did in Cheyenne.  I'm really not a fancy person so everything is very basic.  It gets the job done.  I've seen many displays that look much nicer than mine.  Someday, I will improve the looks, but for right now, this is good enough.

I have 6 of these grey pegboards.  They are about 3 feet wide.  So I fit 3 on the back wall, one on one side and two on the opposite wall.

I use the Paparazzi yard sign as my price tag!  It is nice and large.  I just duct tape the whole sign to the back of my displays.  (People can see it from far away since double-sided.)

On the side of the booth that only has one pegboard, I have a 6 ft table.  On it is the headband display, the starlet shimmer items, big rings, bracelet/cuff diplay and clip display!

Remington is about 8 months in this picture.  He is my constant companion at events and even some parties.  I love being able to kiss his head at any time:)  It's not easy having a baby come with me everywhere, but it is definitely worth it.  He is growing so quickly and I just can't stand the thought of leaving him for a day or two.  He's a great salesman!  It wasn't in the plans to start a business with a newborn, but this opportunity was too good to pass up so I have to adapt.

My mom, Marsha, is a consultant.   She is duct taping the signs to the back of the displays!   Just had to get a picture of her in here!

The lighting isn't great, but that is the booth.  In front of the 2 peg boards on the side, I have a little table where I have drawing slips, information about becoming a consultant, more clips, business cards and a place we can check people out.

Hope this helps!

AND because I love my cute little guy so much, I'm posting a close-up picture of this snuggler!   I'm totally smitten with him.   I really couldn't do Paparazzi like I do if Remington wasn't such a good baby!  He puts up with a lot and is so easy going!!!  I'm greatly blessed in so many ways!

Big Events

I'm working on a post for doing larger events.  I need to add more details, but for right now I'm just posting pictures of what our booth looked like at a large bridal fair.  We made a few changes on the second day which aren't pictured here.  more to come later.

Let Paparazzi Know Where You Have Been!

Often times, the Paparazzi Main Office will get a call from a customer asking for the contact information of a Consultant who was at a particular event/expo. Sometimes, they are able to track down the correct Consultant most of the time, but as Paparazzi grows this is becoming increasingly difficult to do.
In order to continue to offer great customer service, Paparazzi devised a system that will allow you, the Consultant, to let corporate office know where and when you will be showcasing Paparazzi at a large event.
All you need to do is send an email to yourshow@paparazziaccessories.com. Please make sure your email includes: your name, Consultant ID number, the location (city and state) of the event, as well as, the name and dates the event. This is not for home parties or open house parties, just for the larger expo events you participate in. I would even include small town fairs and boutiques (just not home parties).
This will be a very useful tool for you and your Paparazzi business.

Also, if you advertise on blogs, websites, online or anywhere, let Paparazzi know (at that same email) what the name of the sites you advertise on - even if it is your own!  You want people who see your ad to join with you - not some other consultant who didn't do the work! 

Happy Recruiting!
