Frequently Asked Questions About Becoming a Pure Romance Consultant
Q. How do I sign up? A. If you are not currently working with a consultant, you can sign up online by following this link. Please know that though you will be in business for yourself, you will never be by yourself. As your sponsor, it’s my responsibility to help train you, serve as a sounding board, and provide ongoing support.
Q. How much does it cost to get started? A. Usually $199-$1179 for your starter kit. All consultants purchase a starter kit and sign a consultant contract. The starter kit will provide you with products and paperwork to do your first show (or couple shows...depending on which one you select). Pure Romance sometimes runs kit specials. Ask me if there is a special this month.
Q. How do I make money as a consultant? A. There are multiple ways to earn income as a Pure Romance consultant. Let's quickly review them:
1. Buy products at a discount and sell them at a markup (pretty much like any retail business) New consultants start at a either a 30% discount, and can eventually purchase close to 60%. We do not sell our products in stores, so the vehicle for selling is through in-home parties. Women invite you into their homes to entertain their friends by demonstrating our sophisticated line of lotions, lubricants, massage aids, and bedroom accessories.
2. Direct customers to your website. When customers visit your website and place orders, Pure Romance processes the orders for you and you receive a check in the mail.
3. Build a successful team of consultants. Recruiting is always a choice - never required. However, when you invite other women to join the business and help train them to be successful, Pure Romance rewards you with a higher buying discount and monthly override bonuses.
Q. How much do you make? A. On average, Consultants earn around $175-$250 per party depending on party sales. Not bad for under 4 hours of work. Of course this is different for everyone. Consultants who have earned a larger buying discount will earn more, and those just starting out may earn less. Check out this quick video explaining how to make money HERE
Q. What type of women sell Pure Romance? A. All kinds of women! Discard any preconceived notions you may have about the type of women who do romance parties. We have 18 year old single girls and 63 year old grandmothers, high school dropouts and attorneys, women who have struggled financially and those who were financially set long before they decided to become consultants. Each woman has her own unique story for why she decided to join.
Q. I could never get up in front of strangers and talk about sex - how do you do it? A. If you told me a few years ago I would be doing this, I never would have believed you! However, training and support offered is phenomenal, and once you get through the first show jitters, it's a piece of cake!
Q. What if I just don’t like it? A. Then stop - no hard feelings. When you start I’ll work with you on a plan to do a handful of shows to try it out. If at that point you decide it’s not for you, you should have your kit paid for and $ in your pocket. At that point you can throw in the towel and have some very nice products for yourself. BUT, you might decide that you love it!
Q. What are the monthly quotas & recruiting requirements? A. They are minimal. Once you become "active" which means you've sold $200 in retail products within 60 days of signing up, you just need to place a $100 retail order every two months to stay active. There are no recruiting requirements, but there are rewards for building a successful team.
Q. Will I have a website? A. Yes! Pure Romance provides all consultants with a FREE personal website. Orders placed through your website are processed and shipped by the corporate office and you receive credit for these orders. Direct people to your website and reap rewards for doing nothing at all!
Q. How do I book parties? A. There are lots of ways to book shows when you’re first starting out. Most of your bookings will come from your other parties. The first, thing you’ll want to do is host your own “launch party” where you will invite all the women you know to help you launch your business! This is something I can help you with. I also have a great document with 100 booking ideas I’ll share with you.
Q. Why Pure Romance vs. other "Romance" companies? A. We're a class act. We give back to the community. Not only are our parties tasteful and educational, Pure Romance is affiliated with a number of academic institutions (Sex Education week at Yale, Kinsey Institute), and philanthropic organizations (we have a program specifically designed to help women who have undergone cancer treatment recapture their sensuous selves). We've been featured in tons of publications (Womens' Health, Forbes, Entrepreneur) and on television programs like "The View."
Q. I have children at home. How does that work? A. Many successful consultants have young families. By taking a few precautionary measures (such as establishing a locked "Pure Romance" closet) you can successfully run your business while establishing boundaries with your children. I'm happy to share some creative ways other moms are thriving in this business.
Q. What is the role of a "Sponsor"? A. A sponsor's role is to help mentor you in the business. When you are first getting started you will have TONS of questions! It's your sponsor's role to help you navigate through your first few parties and provide ongoing support as you grow your business. Having a sponsor is not required. However, you don't gain anything by not having one (and potentially lose out on a valuable resource!). You only get to sign up once, so seek out a sponsor who you trust, respect, and will be available to you.
