Thirty One Gifts

I'm looking into becoming a consultant for Thirty one Gifts. Is anyone on here a current consultant? I would love some opinions!

I just joined in April. I haven't even seen a bag in person yet, but knew with 4 daughters, this is a company I can get behind! I'm waiting for my new Direction stuff to come and can't wait to get back to Florida and start SELLING.

I learned about Thirty-One on this website. I signed up and I am already out. I don't want to burst any bubbles but the economy has people holding on to their money pretty tightly. I was, IMHO, pretty frugal with my business. I used vistaprint for lots of marketing material and only purchased the "kit enhancements" for the season changes. On my 2008 taxes, by the time I subtracted what I spent from what I made, I only made $78. I didn't do poorly in sales, I had several shows over $700. Granted I have lots of nice bags now (for my next Disney trip) but I sold PC for several years and made significantly more money. Thirty-one has a great company philosophy! The are growing at a very rapid pace and the home office has trouble with the customer service piece, but any time I had an issue with a bag getting holes or misprints (as long as it wasn't my fault) the were very quick to fix. Best wishes in whatever you choose!!

I've been with Thirty-One since early 2008. I really like the products offered and try to be smart about what I purchase to show.

The Thirty-One conference is at Disney this year (next month) as well.
If you have any questions I'd be happy to answer them for you.

Careful...you'll be hooked!
I LOVE the thirty one lines. So cute and girly!
Each rep has their own site, but the main page is thirtyonegifts.com. You can view the catalog there.

We have several stores that sell items like those. They're cute.

I've been looking for a set for Allie's dancing. Her older sister has the garment bag, tote, bucket bag & makeup case that all match and are monogrammed, I'd love to get her a set but the place I ordered from went out of business

This website has lots of stuff that I see in our local shops, but for much less. However, you do have to make a $50 order.

www.ewam.com

Under "lifestyles", they have a "girls & dance" page with lots of cute stuff.

I also was in and am now out. I found the quality of some of the items to be horrible and some of them are way overpriced. That said, I did like some things and when they have a sale you can get good deals. The stuff just didn't sell well around here.

I am now working with Market America and I am doing much better. They products they have are products people use on a daily basis so it's a much easier sell for me.

Good luck!

Can you share any further info on Market America? How does it work? How much are you making? Any info would be appreciated. You can PM me if you prefer.

31 gifts & rockin!!

I live in one of the most depressed states (Michigan) and I am having no problem selling this product! All the products are very affordable (one of the reasons I am selling it), they have high quality fabrics, are very well made and the unique aspect is that you can embroider almost every piece "31" offers!

Customer Service is very responsive and everyone I have come in contact with has been wonderful.

I wouldn't hesitate to jump on board with this company....they give back to their consultants...something many companies don't do nowadays!

If you need any questions answered please let me know and I'd be happy to help you in anyway I can. Even if it's only to answer questions!

Good luck!

Worth Looking Into!!!!!

My best friend has been selling Thirty-One for about 2 1/2 years and she is already a director! I would love to sell the product myself, but we both live in the same small town so it makes it hard for more than a few to sell at a time. If I ever moved away I wouldn't hesitate selling these products!
