You’ve made the decision to join Willing Beauty. Fantastic! But now what? Here are a few things to do to help get your Willing Beauty business off to a strong start:
WHAT TO DO:
Create a new email address.
- Create a separate email address specifically for your upcoming Willing Beauty business. This will allow you to keep personal and business emails separate and save you time in the long run. Plan ahead and remember that you’ll want to put this on a business card. So keep it short and simple. Your email address may not include any of the Trademarked terms, such as but not limited to the following: WillaGirl, Start Young, Stay Young, Possibility is Calling, Your Skin is Your Best Makeup, HY+5, Willing Beauty and Willa.
Considering opening a separate business checking account.
- For income tax purposes, it’s best to keep your personal transactions separated from your business transactions.
- Check with your current bank to see if you can add an additional FREE checking account to your existing account without a minimum balance requirement and/or fees.
- If your bank doesn’t offer this, try calling a local Credit Union. They typically offer free checking accounts.
- Order a Debit Card for your new account.
- Be sure to have Direct Deposit information readily available.
Research and register for a Credit Card Reader.
- This is a great option for those of you who are planning to offer “cash and carry” items at local events. I personally use PayPal Here www.paypalhere.com. I received a free credit card reader, and was also able to apply for a debit card attached to my PayPal account that gives a cash back bonus for added savings. Be sure to get VERIFIED if you choose Paypal! Getting verified is a simple process that connects your bank account to your Paypal account, but it shows credibility. If you’d rather use a different service there are several other options to choose from as well, including Square, Pay Anywhere and ProPay.
Familiarize yourself with the Career Plan.
- Knowing the career plan is a vital step in your business. You will need to know what it takes to reach each level. This way you can map out your goals accordingly.
- Create a public Fan Page. Be sure to include the company name, the word Independent Advisor and your name in the title. For example: Willing Beauty, Independent Beauty Advisor, YOUR NAME.
- Create a private “VIP” group page for your potential Willing Beauty customers. It’s important to INVITE your friends to your VIP group versus adding them without their permission.
- Create your own Willing Beauty “team” group page to share information with those you sponsor.
- Your Facebook page, or group name, should not include any of the Trademarked terms, such as but not limited to the following: WillaGirl, Start Young, Stay Young, Possibility is Calling, Your Skin is Your Best Makeup, HY+5, Willing Beauty and Willa.
- Other Social Media Platforms
- Find a few sites you are comfortable using and focus marketing your upcoming Willing Beauty business on those platforms.
- Instagram is great because it allows you to share those posts on Facebook and Twitter as well.
- Some other popular options include Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter, and Periscope, which is specifically geared towards live broadcasting.
Research and book local vendor events and craft shows.
- Start looking into events you can book for your Willing Beauty business, once you become official. Be sure to start capturing customer and new Beauty Advisor leads.
- When you are booking, be sure to ask the event coordinators if they already have a Willing Beauty representative participating in the event. Ask if they would accept more than one representative from the same company. Use caution if they do.
WHAT NOT TO DO:
Don’t represent yourself as the Company or an employee of the Company.
- Email address, Fan Pages, and website URLs cannot mislead others to believe that YOU are the company or work for the company.
