Get your shop ready for Cyber Monday!


According to the National Retail Foundation, 106.9 million Americans plan to shop online today, Cyber Monday.

What's Cyber Monday? It's the online equivalent of Black Friday. Retailers offer huge discounts if you shop through their websites. It's a pretty great when you think about it. All the great deals and discounts you could want, and you don't have to get up at 4:00 am to get them.

Are you doing anything for Cyber Monday? With so many people online looking to spend money, now would be a great time to direct them to your Mary Kay shop site.

Help them get there by including a link to your MK shop on your UnitWise site.

Here's what you do:

-Go to My Website under the Social Media tab
-Click on General Settings
-Choose a name for your shop menu, something like "Shop With Me" or "Shop Now"
-Enter your MK shop link URL name in the space provided
-Click save settings, and then check out your site.

 
When your visitors click on your shop link, they'll go straight to your MK shop page! Let the Cyber Monday deals begin!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Margrette Field, an Independent Sales Director from Vista, CA. Margrette will post a blog each Wednesday full of tips, tricks, info and advice for other consultants and directors. Be sure to check back each week! 
 
Hello Beautiful,

Wow, can you believe Thanksgiving is here?  If you’re like most of us this can be a busy time of year.  So that means you have to be even more on top of your schedule than ever!  You can set reminders in UnitWise for all of your activities and keep you on track.  You can set multiple reminders to help you and they can be sent either via text or email or both!  You can set the priority of the event, you can even link it to a particular customer, contact or unit member and decide if you want that event visible on your website. Other ways you can utilize this feature is to send reminders to your cell phone via text that say “Call Director Hotline”. A lot of Directors out there have hotline numbers and they would LOVE to hear from you!  You can keep in the loop by creating a habit to call in every day!  Heck, my Mom gave me this idea too! She said you could send reminders with affirmations!  Brilliant! Imagine every day getting an email or text saying “you are a master booker”.  Or “you are an amazing woman with the ability to achieve success”.  Wow, have fun with this!

Since this is the time of year to share our gratitude for all the simple pleasures and the wonderful people we have around us, the UnitWise team of Heroes deserve a big THANK YOU!  Have you noticed they are always available to us either on online chat, a phone call, or a click of an email away?  I love that I can have an answer to my questions either by going online, watching a video or shooting a quick email to my Hero. So, on behalf of all the happy UnitWise customers, THANK YOU Heroes for all you do to make us look SO good! 

Ok…so now for the real tip of the week!  Eat as much turkey as you want! ;)  Did you know scientists have found there to be no calories in food consumed on Thanksgiving Day?  It’s amazing! So, eat all you want, and be happy! 

Until next week!

Pink Hugs,
Margrette

Keep record of those gifts

Margrette Field, an Independent Sales Director from Vista, CA. Margrette will post a blog each Wednesday full of tips, tricks, info and advice for other consultants and directors. Be sure to check back each week! 

Hello, Gorgeous!

It’s the time of year when you are most likely sharing your gift services with your customers.  So, how you do you keep good records of this in UnitWise?  This information is actually good to know at any time you’re offering gift sets to your customers throughout the year.  Sometimes we want to add in little “extras” or maybe include your gift wrap in the price of a gift set.  Since you are an Independent Contractor you may choose whether or not you’re going to include the cost of those extra items in the total sale price. 

Here’s an example of what to do if you are charging for gift wrap.  You may have seen the post regarding how to make product collections.  First you will want to add product to your inventory called "WRAP".  To do this you want to go to your Inventory tab on your Dashboard and then click on Products. Then from there you'll click on "Add Product". You can enter the details there accordingly for your new gift wrap product.  You’ll be asked to assign it to an existing category or you can create a new one.  Next you’ll make a Product Collection. You’ll see how you can simply add any products in our line and now your gift wrap with product name WRAP to the collection.  This will give the entire collection a new price including the amount you add for gift wrap!  Just name the collection and you’re all set! 

Here’s the video to review the steps once again.



The Video Guide link located on the top right of your UnitWise Dashboard is the best place to find answers to frequently asked questions. 

Setting up product collections will make invoicing a breeze and the best part is your inventory will always be up to date!

Until next week…Keep Selling!

Make Your Own Product Collections


Not only can you create and add your own products in UnitWise, but you can also make your own product collections. To do that, go to the Products page under the Inventory tab and click on the Add Product button on the right.

Here you can add a product, give it a name and part number and select a product category. You can choose from an existing category, or create one before hand from the Inventory Products screen. To create a collection, click the box next to Product Collection. A button will appear that says Itemize. Click that button to bring up an inventory window. In this window you can type in the products you want to add to the collection. Add more products using the add product button.


If you've created and added your own products beforehand, you'll find them in the list here, just type them in. This way you can truly create customized collections. When you're done adding products click Ok. Next you can add in your suggested retail price and more. When you're finished creating your collection, click Save.

When you invoice this product collection as an item, the products within the collection will be withdrawn from the inventory, that means you can sell the collection at one special price, and sell the collection items individually at their own prices.

Get ready for PCP enrollment

Margrette Field, an Independent Sales Director from Vista, CA. Margrette will post a blog each Wednesday full of tips, tricks, info and advice for other consultants and directors. Be sure to check back each week! 
 
Hello Gorgeous!

A quick reminder that the enrollment for the Preferred Customer Program is coming up on November 15th.  You will want to be sure you enroll all of your customers in the program on marykayintouch.com.  However, I suggest cross referencing the customers you have in UnitWise with the ones on marykayintouch first.  You may have added some on UnitWise and some new customers may have registered on your website since the last enrollment.  UW has a great tool along with a video for you to import your mycustomers’ list from intouch.    

Double check that you have the Preferred Customer box checked in your customer’s settings too.  This will make it easy when follow up time comes around at the end of December.  You can even enter the date your customer was first enrolled into the PC Program. If you see that any customer has been on the program for over 4 campaigns, and they have not made a purchase, you might want to consider removing them from your PCPlist.

Have a powerful and productive day! 

Margrette
