Maybe you have fallen in love with the beautiful styles of Agnes&Dora and you want to take the next step to selling them. Maybe you see an opportunity for success and want to seize it or you are just exploring some options. Whatever the case, let’s talk about how to make the jump and join the business!
First up. Welcome to the club!
I started in direct sales one year ago and I can honestly say it was one of the best decisions I ever made. I was very anti MLM and anti direct sales, but the experience of being in this business has completely changed my mindset. Yes, there are spammy people (no one likes getting those cold messages–Hey, haven’t spoken since high school! By the way, are you happy with your current skincare routine? UGH) but there are also amazing people who let you find them and fall in love with their product with no pushing whatsoever.
If you have made the decision that Agnes and Dora is right for you, congratulations!
First, you will need to choose a sponsor.
See my article on the top three things to consider when making this choice. This is your main cheerleader, teacher, and friend going into your startup. You definitely want to give it some thought!
Second, you will need to consider your financial options.
Agnes and Dora is pretty awesome in that they allow you to choose your initial inventory! There are three levels of financial commitment. You can choose to invest $2k, $3500, or $5000, but the upper two levels give you a little something extra in value. This is a big decision and your sponsor and your family members are good people to weigh in on your options!
Agnes and Dora does not have a “queue” exactly, but when you choose to sign up, you go on a waitlist. They do require you to go through a week of Discovery in a group run by HQ. This is an amazing opportunity to learn more about the company and your different options as a potential retailer.
At the end of the week of Discovery, you can opt in to sign on!
You have three weeks to make that final decision. Once the paperwork is completed and your investment paid, you have two weeks to place your initial order! Your sponsor and teammates are valuable resources for deciding what pieces you want to start off with. One of the things I love about this company is that it is ALWAYS your choice what to curate for your shop. I have found I am most successful carrying styles that I personally wear and love–your passion is the best marketing tool you have!
