If you are considering the opportunity to become a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, then I would LOVE to welcome you into my team. Being a demonstrator is an incredible chance to combine a fun-filled pastime with a great home-based business, and it's also a way to help others achieve worthwhile accomplishments.

Here is some further information about the wonderful demonstrator opportunity:

Why Be A Demonstrator?

The discount! An immediate 20% on all of your purchases with potential for even more depending on your monthly sales.

The website! The Stampin’ Up! demonstrator website is a fabulous resource for creative ideas, business tips and a place to connect with your fellow demonstrators.

The events! Stampin’ Up! sure knows how to run an event, whether it’s the yearly convention or the smaller scale local Regional Seminars.  There are inspirational displays and demonstrations, FABULOUS prizes and giveaways and the opportunity to participate in card swaps with other demonstrators. 
Free stuff! As a customer or hostess, you would be familiar with the different promotions that are available from time to time.  It is no different for demonstrators!  Several times per year we have the opportunity to earn free stamp sets through different promotions.

The incentives! To help you get off to a flying start on your Stampin’ Up! adventure, there is a great incenvtive program allowing you to earn free stamps based on your sales and recruiting efforts within your first six months.  Then there is the all expenses paid trip for two to an exotic location that you can work towards every year!

The friendships! Since I started this journey, I have become part of the most wonderful network of stampers that I would be unlikely to have ever crossed paths with had it not been for the decision to become a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator.  I now have great friends in other demonstrators right across Australia, and also in customers that have become friends through a mutual love of stamping.  

The money!  How wonderful to share your love of stamping and creating with others while earning myself a nice income at the same time.

The products! Whether you are just buying them for yourself, or also selling them to your customers, you can be assured of the fact that Stampin’ Up! products are top quality and very competitively priced too!  

The company! Believe it or not Stampin’ Up! is a company that really cares!  They look after their own in a way that I have never seen in any business I have ever worked in.  They are also extremely generous in giving to fundraising efforts that benefit communities where their demonstrators reside, particularly in the areas of education and health.

So you can see that there are a great many reasons to become a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, whether as a business or a hobby. 

FAQ about becoming a demonstrator

Is there a minimum I have to maintain in sales?
To remain active as a demonstrator you need to maintain sales of $550 per quarter (3 months). Even if you sign up as a hobby demonstrator, this could easily be maintained by making occasional sales to your stampin’ friends in addition to your own purchases.   Otherwise, you should find that one or two workshops per quarter will keep you actively maintaining your sales quota.

Do I have to do workshops?
Only if you want to!   The choice is absolutely yours.  If you never want to present a workshop, then you never have to, but if you would like to do workshops, then it’s entirely up to you the kind of workshop schedule you maintain.

How can I earn money?
You earn an immediate 20% on all of your sales and in any given month, you can earn up to an additional 12% depending on your level of sales in that month.  If you choose to build a team of your own by sharing the Stampin’ Up! opportunity with others, you can also earn what is called a ‘downline override’ which the company pays to you based on the sales of your recruits 5 levels down.

Do I have to keep products ‘in stock’?
No, you will place orders that are paid for in advance by your customers so you won’t need to keep an inventory.

Do I need an ABN?

Do I get any training?
As your upline, I am here to help in any capacity that you require on your stampin’ journey and am always just a phone call or email away.  I am not the kind of upline who will pressure you to do any more than you are happy to do, but if you require extra support in any area of your business (or hobby!) then I am more than happy to help in whatever way I can - all you need to do is ask!
Stampin’ Up! also provides a variety of valuable resources, including the demonstrator website, Demonstrator Support agents, the monthly full-colour Impressions magazine, demonstrator events including the yearly convention and regional training seminars, a training DVD, demonstrator manual and product guide, plus a series of ‘Ready-Set-Start’ email newsletters designed especially for demonstrators just starting out.

What if I decide it’s not for me after I’ve signed up?
Then you simply stop placing orders. There are no penalties or requirements to pay anything back if you decide not to continue at any point after having signed up as a demonstrator. If you don’t meet your sales requirements for any given quarter, after giving you a chance to make it up if you’d like to, Stampin’ Up! will just ‘drop’ you and you go on your merry way!
