Over the last year, I’ve become a jewelry junkie. I’m not sure what happened, because I’d been so ‘anti’ jewelry that I traded in my original wedding ring for a plain gold band about 10 years ago. And yet the frugal part of me doesn’t want to spend a bunch of money on trinkets… until a web design client of mine asked me to change the focus and design of her website to feature Paparazzi Accessories. As I was building the site I was really impressed with the style and variety of the jewelry AND especially of the price. $5? Really? So I set up an appointment to visit her and meet her for the first time, as we’d only ever worked via phone and email. Well let me tell you, she had a fabulous inventory to look at and helped me pick out a couple of options to go with a new dress, and let me shop away. At $5 a pop I didn’t have to choose just one. I chose 20! 20 fabulous pieces (necklaces come with matching earrings, so actually more than 20). Still… only 100 bucks for all that?
I was hooked and signed up right there (after buying my 20 items retail) to sell the stuff. Signing up was just $99 and it included 35 items + a bunch of stuff to use to start your business. (the 35 items are the choice of Paparazzi.)
Am I going to quit my day job? Nope. While I hope to make a little pocket money, this will be a side gig… because I love it. And I think it’s a great way for young stay-at-home moms to make some extra money without having to cough up thousands of dollars for inventory. Part of my plan is to determine if an average person could really do this and what they could expect to make.
You can sell and make money various ways:
- Send people to your ‘replicated’ website (the link to mine is https://paparazziaccessories.com/92282)
- Sell retail (which means carry an inventory) via: home parties, basket parties, web only parties, conventions/events, and Facebook Live events
- You can sign up other consultants to sell and make a commission off of their sales (the commission you make is based on your own level within the company)
