Question: How Do You Sell Scentsy In Australia?
The same way that you sell Scentsy everywhere! And the best part about it is that, with this product, you really don’t even need to sell. You just get it in front of people and it basically sells itself. People love Scentsy Fragrance!
So back to the selling part – there are many ways to sell Scentsy in Australia, if you are part of our team we can help you to create a specific plan to market your business. A really good way to start is to make a list of 100 people you can think of who might want to buy Scentsy, host a party, or join your team.
Next, we want to plan your own Scentsy Launch Party and get your Scentsy Australia business off to a quick start. To be successful with your launch party you’ll want to invite as many people as you can think of – those on your list, your neighbours, friends, relatives, co-workers, etc.
You’ll want to build your team through recruiting and sponsoring as many new people as possible. This will help you start off quickly, earn the Shooting Star Award and the Scentsational Start Award, as well as start to get Scentsy promotions.

Question: Why Scentsy? Why not another direct sales company?
We strive to bring true value to the world and ‘contribute more than we take’ in relationships with our Consultants, customers, and in our communities. We are an active member of the U.S. Direct Selling Association (DSA), an industry organization founded to promote and uphold the highest level of business ethics and service to consumers.
Why is DSA membership so important? Because it means that Scentsy Consultants, Hosts, and customers can be confident about doing business with a company they can trust.
Question: But I’m not a salesperson! How can I be successful?
Scentsy products sell themselves, and this business isn’t about a “hard sell” or “selling strategies”. If you enjoy partying and talking about the products with your friends and family, then you have everything that you need to succeed.
The simplicity of our products, and the fact that you don’t have to pressure sell is a real benefit to being in this company, and when you combine that with the fact that the products really do sell themselves even brand new Consultants feel comfortable and confident right from the start.
Question: Why should I consider direct selling?
There are many reasons – the freedom of being your own boss, the excitement of owning your own business without having employees, expensive start up costs or a long term lease, the flexibility to set your own schedule and work as many (or as few) hours as you choose, and the huge potential for success are just a few of the reasons people take up direct selling. Best part – anyone can do it! You don’t need a fancy MBA or a background in sales or a hole bunch of start up money. Direct selling is an easy, enjoyable way to earn extra income.
Question: Do I get anything when I sign up?

Yes – more than you can even imagine. Scentsy Independent Consultants are truly mentored. Along with the support that you’ll get from your Sponsor and your upline Director and SuperStar Director, you’ll get access to web-based training tools and an online forum for connecting with fellow Consultants. You’ll also get a New Consultant Start-Up Guide, promotional products, and marketing tools.
Scentsy also has a fully-staffed Consultant Support Department just for Australia and it is available every weekday from 8:00 to 16:00 (GMT) to answer your questions. Also, each year there will be a “Scentsy Family Reunion” in Australia. Here is details on the upcoming 2014 Scentsy Family Reunion Australia
There is a dedicated Consultant Support team for Australia to make sure that Consultant Support Representatives are knowledgeable about the specific needs of the Australia market, and the hours of operation will match normal business hours in Australia.
Also, Scentsy Australia consultants have access to the Scentsy Family Store where they can buy supplies for their business. These include catalogs; order forms; Host Rewards brochures; Buy, Host, and Join brochures; business cards; and labels.
Scentsy Independent Consultants in Australia will have similar tools to their U.S. and Canadian counterparts: a similar Workstation and the ability to subscribe to a Personal Website (PWS).
Question: Are there any other benefits to joining Scentsy?
Yes! As a new Scentsy Independent Consultant you’ll also get a free website for three full months ($13/month after that), a free online Workstation to organize and run your business, free credit card processing, no inventory to manage, and free shipping on orders over $220. Are you ready to get started yet?
Question: Can I do my parties my own way? Or do I have to use a script?
Definitely do it your own way! Scentsy has a lot of great training tools and advice on how to have a successful party, but the way you run your parties — and your business — is entirely up to you. You can be formal, unstructured, one-on-one, whatever best suits your personality. We want you to relax and just be yourself and let the incredible products sell themselves!
Question: Are there sales quotas to meet?
Consultants are encouraged to be engaged and actively participate in their Scentsy Family business. In order to remain an active consultant you have to generated sales resulting in 150 points or more in PRV (basically $200 in sales) in at least one calendar month in a rolling three-month period. So it really is a low bar to remain active.
Question: What if I can’t do it? What if it doesn’t work out for me?
That’s ok. We realize that not everyone is going to enjoy this business. As a Independent Consultant or a Host you’re free to leave Scentsy at any time. There is no cancellation penalty.
Question: Are there any rewards for hosting a Scentsy Party?
Yes there are!

Free Product 10% 10% 15% 15%

Question: Where do the product ship from? Are they shipped from overseas?
No, all Scentsy products are shipped to Australian Consultants and customers from within Australia. Scenty’s policy is to ship all orders within 10 business days of the order date.
Question: What about the taxation?
Australia employs a Goods and Services Tax (GST) of 10 percent to most goods and services. The added tax must be included in the listed price of products. For instance, if a Scentsy Warmer is listed at $43 (AUD), that price includes tax.
Question: How are the commissions calculated in different countries that use different currencies?
Scentsy has a global Compensation Plan designed to support multiple countries. This ensures that all consultants get the same rate of commission independent of where they live.
Question: What can I expect to earn?
That is entirely up to you. How hard you are willing to work will determine your income. However the sky really is the limit in this business. Here is a breakdown of the commission schedule:
Consultants make commission on their own sales as well as additional bonuses on the sales of other Consultants they sponsor. Some of our Consultants opt to sell just enough to get their Scentsy products at a discount, while many of the top SuperStar Directors make well over six figures a year. Define your dream and then make it happen.
