Schedule a time to call (a 2 hour block of time, maybe 7-9 pm) 6. Stay at it until you get all 8 scheduled! (Never book 1 or 2 at a time – always have 8.) Please follow this Step by Step – this is MOST Important to your success! Do not skip a step! Do this immediately! Your script :―Hi_____, this is _______ calling. Do you have a quick minute? You’re not going to believe this, I’m starting my own business teaching skin care & make up artistry for Mary Kay! I’m so excited! I’d just love to get your opinion of the products. Is there any reason we couldn’t get together? Would Thursday or Saturday be better?‖ (DO NOT STOP UNTIL YOU GIVE HER A CHOICE OF TIMES) She chooses & then you say: (Turning the facial into a class) ―By the way _____, I can do several faces as easily as one. When you have a couple of girlfriends join you, you could actually get $100 worth of free products! All you have to do is invite 10 to 12 friends so that 6 or more will join you. I’m going to send (or drop off) a packet that will explain everything. So go ahead & start inviting.‖ If she is very excited, continue with, ―Let me share a secret about inviting friends, instead of saying...I’m having a Mary Kay party, do you want to come? Try, saying.... A Mary Kay Consultant is coming over to pamper me & get my opinion of the products & she’s allowing me to share it with a couple girlfriends. I know it will be a lot of fun. It’s reservation only, can I count on you?‖ WORKING THROUGH BOOKING OBJECTIONS LISTEN to the objection – CLARIFY what she says – ACKNOWLEDGE the concern & OFFER the solution. TOO BUSY: ―I understand __________, you know, I’m a really busy person too, so I can appreciate that! It may take us an hour or so to find your special needs & preferences, but after that I can save you an enormous amount of time – you’ll never have to go to the mall again for your cosmetics. I can save you $$ too! Which would be better for you, _______ or ________?‖ NO $$: ―I understand ___________, are you aware that Mary Kay is a third to half less than anything at the department store and you never even have to pay full price for our products. We have discounts & lots of ways to get it free, we even have No Interest Payment Plans! Plus, there’s no obligation to purchase. I’d just appreciate your honest opinion. Which would be better for you, _________ or __________?‖ USE CLINIQUE (or another brand): ―Great! You obviously appreciate good cosmetics! You know, we never find anyone who doesn’t like Mary Kay at least as well, if not better than Clinique – I’d love to get your honest opinion – is there any reason you couldn’t compare your __________ to Mary Kay? You can have a glamour item at half price just for giving me your opinion. Which would be better for you, __________ or __________?‖ Offer the item FREE when she brings a friend! You might also ask, ―May I ask you what (Clinique) products you’re using?‖ (Often it’s just a lipstick or blush.) I TRIED MARY KAY ONCE & BROKE OUT! ―I’m sorry you had that experience – may I ask how long it’s been? (Explain product changes) _________, may I ask you what you mean by ―Broke Out‖? Was it blemishes? (Wrong fo rmula) or little red itchy bumps? (A “sensitivity to” possibly one of the products – doesn’t mean she can’t use the whole line – some people have a “sensitivity to” milk & strawberries!) Is there any reason we couldn’t work together to find the perfect program for you? Which would be a better time for you, __________ or ____________?‖ SHE STILL RESISTS: ―Tell you what – Here’s my card, if you ever change your mind will you give me a call? I’d love to be the one to show you our products!‖ OR ―Here’s my card, if you know of anyone who would like to try our products, would you pass it on?‖ ALWAYS LEAVE WITH A „YES‟. HANDLING BOOKING OBJECTIONS LIKE A CHAMPION “I‟m Too Busy” Great! That’s exactly why I chose to work with you, _______. When’s the last time you took one hour to slow down and pamper yourself? Don’t you deserve to be pampered with a luxurious facial and hand treatment? You will feel so renewed and gorgeous! __________, I understand how you feel, since I’m busy too. That’s why I chose you to pamper- because busy people always get the most done and are more dependable. We can have a short class that will be about one hour. Wouldn’t it be worth it to learn how to save time and money in the long run and to learn how to have a softer, smoother, more radiant complexion? Great! When’s the next special event or date that you want to look great for? How about Friday night? I’ll come over, make you look and feel gorgeous, and you’ll be ready for your night on the town. “I Don‟t Wear Make-up” Great! Mary Kay is the #1 in Skin Care and since we all have skin, wouldn’t you love to learn how to have a softer, smoother, and more radiant natural complexion? You would be a great person to give me your opinion of our line. We also will be demonstrating luxurious body care products. “I Have Sensitive Skin” I’m glad you mentioned that. Isn’t it reassuring to know that Mary Kay is specifically formulated for the most sensitive skin? You’d be the perfect person to give me your opinion of our skin care system. “I Tried Mary Kay Before and It Broke Me Out” Really? _______, can you tell me when was the last time you tried Mary Kay? (if they say over 2 years ago say…) Great, because Mary Kay invested millions of dollars in research and development to totally reformulate the line and has become the #1 in skin care in the nation. (If they say recently say…) ________, do you mind me asking which formula you used? Was it a rash break or a blemish break out? (They were probably either over emollient or are allergic to an ingredient in one of the products, in which case we can switch formulas. Say…) ________, the formula you used was probably wrong for your skin type. I’d love to work with you and custom design a system that will give you the results you deserve. Is there any reason why we can’t get together? “I‟m Using Another Product Line” Great! ______, that means you’re even more qualified to give me your honest opinion of our skin care system, since you’re currently on a program yourself. “Mary Kay Doesn‟t Have Anything for Women of Color” _______, I’m so glad you mentioned that. Isn’t it great knowing that Mary Kay has a line of color specifically for women of color and that we have shades that will look gorgeous on the lightest to the darkest of skin tones. And, as far as skin care, skin is skin and we have the #1 product in the Nation. “I Don‟t Know Who to Invite” I know sometimes it’s hard to think of people, but think about who would love being pampered. What about… the women you work with? Neighbors? Relatives? Friends you shop with? If you can think of one person, then they can bring a friend and you’ll have enough for a pamper class to earn your FREE products. “I Want to Check With My Friends First” That’s a great idea, but why don’t we set a tentative date because everyone has such different schedules and that will save you time in calling everyone back trying to accommodate everyone. Ask them if they can come on that date and, if they can’t, we will reschedule for another date. “My House is Too Small” There’s no need to worry about the size of your home since there will only be a few guests (as many as you would like), or what would be even better, is if you come to my house/ training center. That way, you won’t have to worry about cleaning up or refreshments. You can just come as you are and leave looking like a STAR! “My Friends are All Partied Out” I can understand that. Aren’t we all tired of parties? Isn’t it refreshing to know that with Mary Kay, you will be learning about your skin in a class situation, and you’ll be pampering yourselves with FREE facials and no obligations. COACHING YOUR APPOINTMENTS Prepare your hostess for a fun, enjoyable and simple class. Any class worth coaching! At every class your hostess is your business partner. The better job you do in the coaching process, the better class you and she will have. Make 20 packets at a time so that you are always prepared and write a personal note thanking her in advance for being a great hostess and reminding her of what she’s working towards in free products. Put fun stickers/ colorful stamps on the mailing envelope. Spray a little cologne inside so that when she opens it, the romance begins. Make her feel special! Coaching/ Hostess Packet* Contents 1. Look Books 2. A two-pocket folder with a few outside order forms (to pass around at work) 3. A hostess brochure 4. A piece of recruiting literature (to plant the seed) 5. 4- 6 business cards she can give out Pre-Profiling the Guest- Script #3 Pre-profiling each and every guest gives you an opportunity to build a connection and find out each person’s need. It will help you know a little more about each person coming and if she is a possible team member. It will also assist you in knowing the skin types that will be at your class and help you design each person’s vinyl set with an index card with her name on it that you will put in back of her tray. This shows ownership and she will take the product home. ―Hello ________, this is ____________ with Mary Kay Cosmetics and your girlfriend, ____________ said that she wanted you at her Pampering Session with me. Do you have a quick minute? (pause- listen) Well, as her gift to you, she’s invited you to attend a class with her on (date), but it’s by reservation only. I have just a few questions to ask you about your skin: 1. Tell me _________, what do you currently use on your skin? 2. What do you like most about what you’re using? What do you like the least? 3. Do you think your skin is dry, normal, combination, or oily? 4. If I could help you change anything about your skin in two weeks, what would it be? 5. Have you ever tried Mary Kay before? Great!

Well, ________, let me tell you what we’ll be doing at the class. First, _______ do your hands ever get dry? Really! You’ll want to get there exactly at ___ because I’ll be doing a fabulous deep moisturizing hand treatment that you will absolutely love! Then you’ll experience an advanced skin care facial that will make your face feel soooo good. We’re going to have such a great time and you’ll receive a special gift from me just for attending! _______, you should be getting an invitation in the mail, and your seat is reserved, so if there is any reason you can’t attend, please let _______ or myself know so we can refill the spot.

I talked to ______, _______, etc. We’re going to have so much fun and I’ve rearranged my schedule to be at your house exactly at ___ so I can set-up and give you your custom color look! (If she tries to get out of the appointment say…) You know _________, remember when I told you that you could count on me? Well, I’m still really counting on you to hold up this appointment. I’ve set aside this time JUST FOR YOU, so I can come by for a quickie (laugh and keep it light). You’re under no obligation, but this does represent a day’s work for me. How can we make this a Win/ Win situation? I promise it will be worth it. BEFORE YOU LEAVE YOUR HOUSE THE DAY OF- Script #5- Always call before you go to an appointment to ensure they are actually there, even if you have talked to them the night before.

BUSINESS DEBUT CHECKLIST Checklist to ensure you have a successful debut of your brand new Mary Kay business! _____ Schedule your business debut within your first 2 – 3 weeks of business. However, if this is not possible, then scheduling a business debut later is better than not scheduling one at all. You will also want to plan to have your inventory in stock before your business debut. _____ Hold your business debut in your home, preferably, because it is a warmer, friendlier, environment. Church fellowship halls, civic halls, apartment club houses or a friend’s home will be fine. Delegate the task of cleaning your home so your time may be spent on the telephone with your prospective guests and customers. _____ Invite all the people on your “Contact List”. This should be a minimum of 75 people. (You can expect 15-20 to attend with proper follow-up.) When you have at least 15 adults attending, I will have the most amazing prize for you—ask me! _____ Send out a minimum of 75 Business Debut Invitations. Sending postcards alone will not be effective. After you have mailed your invitations, plan to call each guest personally and invite them 24–48 hours before your event. (Check with your director about obtaining business debut invitations.) _____ Call each guest on your “Contact List”. Keep in mind that your friends and family are not coming to hear your director or recruiter, they are coming to help you! Your attendance will be in direct proportion to the number of guests that you personally speak with prior to the event and when you give your Director the names and numbers of your guests (within 48 hours of your special day), SHE will call and thank them in advance (and give you a gift at your Debut just for allowing her to help you, isn't that great?). Remember, if they cannot come to your business debut, you’ ll want to either schedule an appointment with them and/or invite them to the next unit event. Checklist for the day of the event: _____ Provide simple refreshments. You’ll want to delegate the hosting/serving to someone special in your family or a close friend so you may be focused on helping your guests to schedule appointments and learn more about your Mary Kay business! _____ Mark your datebook with everything that you have going on in your life. Then mark the times and dates that you have dedicated to your Mary Kay business. Put a star beside your power start weeks. _____ Have the following supplies available: _____ All Inventory out and organized. I prefer that at least 5 Travel Roll Up bags be assembled and ready to SELL! _____ Pens and profile cards on hand for each guest to complete as they arrive. _____ A money bag with $20 in change. (1 – $5, 10 – $1 and $5 in coins) _____ Beauty Books stamped with contact information. _____ Sales tickets _____ Calculator _____ Your recruiter/director will arrive 1/2 hour before the program to set up the entire product display and bring door prizes. She’ll need a big table. You’ll want to arrange the seating in a semi-circle in front of the table. _____ Relax and have fun with your guests. Your focus should be to schedule your 10-20 skin care classes for your power start. Let your recruiter/director fill orders and talk to people about the business opportunity. _____ Have enough *Hostess packets prepared to give to each guest at your debut. _____ Have enough ―Recruiting Packets‖ prepared to give to each guest at your debut. _____ IMPORTANT! Decorate a pretty poster board with 60 lines to book Double Power Start at your debut *Hostess packet should include: Hostess Brochure (choose one with your Director) Enclosed is my favorite A piece of Recruiting Literature (Steps to Success or flier of Starter Kit) Mary Kay Beauty Book/Mary Kay Look Book Put in brightly colored folder or large envelope 4- 5 outside order forms WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT DURING THE PROGRAM: All the guests will introduce themselves, tell how long they have known you and their relationship to you, a bit about their family, work, hobbies and what their experience with Mary Kay has been, if any. Your Director or Recruiter will explain the purpose of the event: You will be affirmed in your business by your guests. Your goals will be shared and your guests will know that you will be asking them to help you by having a complimentary facial or class. The recruiter/director will share their ―I‖ story and their relationship with you. Mary Kay Cosmetics will be introduced as the #1 selling brand of Skin Care and Color Cosmetics in the Nation! No one will actually receive a makeover that day because that is what you’ll be offering at their skin care class. This is a show and tell type of event. At the close guests will have an opportunity to earn chances for door prizes by making a purchase, scheduling a facial (and or class) and listening to our Marketing Line. THE VALUE OF GOOD INVENTORY Maintaining a good inventory is the first step towards building a strong customer service business. Just as you depend on your florist to carry fresh flowers, your clients depend on you to offer the same professional service. A good inventory will also motivate you to reach higher sales goals, increase customer satisfaction, and reduce business costs. Some new recruits and potential recruits do not understand the total value of their initial order for their inventory. This is very understandable because it is new and let’s face it, borrowing money can be a little overwhelming. However, you are borrowing money to make money. In addition, you’re making 50% on your money. That’s a good investment. We must remember from the beginning that starting our own business with inventory is one of the keys to success. Can you imagine the difficulty of a retail store opening for business with a couple of items versus the same store with complete inventory? What the eye sees, the eye will buy. Customers will purchase more when they can feel, touch, and smell it. Some refer to it as impulse buying. Think of how many time we go to the grocery store for a gallon of milk, do we ever leave with just a gallon of milk? Of course not, we pick up dog food, bread, chips, etc. OUR FIRST FEAR - BORROWING Many bankers are more willing to make a loan to a stable woman, regardless of age, than a man, as they have a better repayment record. That usually means if we try to do something, we usually do it. Isn’t that the first thing we learn in Mary Kay from our Recruiter and Director, ―You can do if U‖ Remember, the Company offers the 90% buyback guarantee. Don’t just try one source when you borrow. - Donald Trump wouldn’t have given up after visiting only one bank. OUR SECOND FEAR - INTEREST RATES Is money too high? Should I wait? Should I only order a minimum amount? Do not let these things bother you. You are not borrowing that much and it’s only short term. Do you realize there is only a $35.00 difference between borrowing $3,600 for six months at 18% versus 14%? Did you realize that if you borrow $600.00 at 18% for six months versus borrowing 3,600 that is only about $95 more? Would you rather go to a clothing store and see what you need and buy it, or would you rather wait until they ordered it? Would you rather make one trip to one appointment and sell product to 3 people at one time or would you rather take orders and make 3 additional deliveries? If you don’t have product at your appointment, how many customers will say ―No, or I guess you can call me when you get it‖? In other words, HOW MANY SALES ARE YOU GOING TO LOOSE and how many additional hours will you work delivering, reselling, collecting, and revisiting to finally collect your profit? Time is precious to everyone and we are all given the same amount of hours in a day. By starting your business at profit level of $3600, your business will run much smoother. Remember, you can’t sell out of an empty wagon. OUR THIRD FEAR - CAN I PAY IT OFF? The average conservative sale is $200. That means you will make $100 profit at that appointment. Depending on how much time you take. Also, after 30 days your reorder business will kick in, and that’s another 50% profit. What does that mean? It adds up to this. If you only hold 3 appointments per week, you can pay your loan and have a profit too. More importantly, you have $3600 worth of product that you own, and it worth $7200. Planning a good inventory is vital to building a strong, growing business. Without products, you can’t sell them and without sales, you are out of business. Keep your product inventory up to date and plan for your future needs. P .S.

Conventional Loan – This type of loan from a bank will help you establish credit in your own name. If you are married, be sure to get the loan in your name. They prefer larger amounts usually $2,500 to $3,000 minimum. The rates are usually reasonable and there is usually no pre-payment penalty, should you decided to pay your loan off quickly. Find a great local source that you build a relationship with and can send people to for application. 2. Passbook Loan – You borrow against the money you have in a savings account. 3. Life Insurance Loan – You can borrow against your life insurance usually at a very low rate of interest. 4. Credit Union Loan – If you are employed and have a Credit Union; or if married, your spouse might have a Credit Union at his place of employment. Credit Unions are traditionally a source of low interest loans. Processing your loan may take 2 to 3 weeks. 5. Credit Card Loans – Visa, MasterCard, and American Express have ways to borrow money. Mary Kay Cosmetics will accept Visa/MC/Discover for inventory purchases. You must be sure to have enough available credit on the card to cover your purchase. It is simple to find this out by calling the bank issuing your card and asking what your credit balance is. We recommend that you use a separate bankcard for your Mary Kay business, if one is available. 6. M. Bank Visa – Your recruiter can provide you with a credit card application for M Bank Visa, a credit card available to you on terms negotiated by Mary Kay Cosmetics. The disadvantage to using this option is that credit approval requires 6 to 8 weeks. We recommend that you express mail your application for faster service. 7. Family Loan – Many times there are members of your family willing to help you start your career. It is recommended that the arrangement be made on a loan basis where you pay this money back in monthly installments. Co-signers – If you do not have a lengthy credit history or have not been employed long enough, having a co-signer (parent, relative, close friend) may help you qualify. 8. Hidden Treasures – “Pawn” something that you have that is valuable that you are not using. 9. Secured Loan – You can use your automobile, your home, stocks and bonds, Certificates of Deposit, etc. as collateral. Along with banks, financial institutions such as Beneficial, Morris Plan, Avco, etc. offer a variety of loan packages. 10. Borrow against another person’s savings – Ask someone to put a portion of their savings into Certificates of Deposit, then you borrow against that. Their money is safe, guaranteed, and they’re still making interest. 11. Have a Garage Sale – Other people will pay you good money for items you sell. The good news is that you’ll be able make $2 for each $1 you put into Mary Kay. *******The Interest You Incur As A Result of Your Business Is A Tax Write-Off******* Credit Options Wells Fargo – (410) 480-0104 -- Kyle Grogan is a great resource.
