Classy Nail Files uses “social selling” as its primary marketing method. As a consultant you may hold nail file parties in people’s homes or in public or private venues, sell nail files to clients and build a fun and exciting business. Finding new clients for Classy Nail Files is the foundation of your ongoing success.
Classy Nail Files social selling system also allows you to invite others to be part of your consultant (aka: distribution) team, enhancing your income potential. The people you bring into your business team as consultants, together with the people they bring, are known as your “team,” your “group,” your “organization” or “downline.” Within the Marketing, Leadership and Executive phases, there are many ways for you to make money in this Compensation Plan.
40% Base Wholesale Discount: You will receive a 40% Base wholesale discount on your orders. This will be discounted every time you place an order. The consultant sells at retail keeps profits.
Up To 5% Enhanced Retail Commission: You can earn up to 5% additional commission, paid monthly, based on your team sales for the month. Combined with the 30% Base Commission, this means you can earn up to 35% on your Personal Volume.
When you personally enroll another consultant (your “Enrollee 1” or “E1”), you’ll receive a 5% Enroller commission on that consultant’s Personal Volume (PV).
The Marketing Phase – Build Your Retail Sales
There are two “phases” in Classy Nail Files Compensation Plan. The first is the “Marketing Phase” in which you earn retail commissions for your Personal Volume. The “Leadership Phase” is about building your team and supporting the social selling efforts of your downline. The first step for any new Consultant is to purchase a Consultant Basic Starter Kit, which contains more than $135.00 worth of retail value products and sales materials and one free month of their personalized website, for just $59.99 plus tax and shipping. No commissions or bonuses of any kind are paid on starter kits. The new consultant will also register on the website as a member, which will also activate their personal Consultant Center Back Office, personalized website, and ability to receive commissions for sales.
The foundation of your Classy Nail Files business is selling products and creating new clients. When you lead a nail party you share your enthusiasm for the products, take orders to be fulfilled by the Company and develop lasting client relationships. These sales to clients generate the revenue from which your commissions and the bonuses earned by your upline for helping you are paid. As soon as your Application has been accepted by the Company, you’ll be designated as a Consultant for Classy Nail Files, eligible to earn the 40% Base Commission on all your Personal Volume (PV), as well as Enhanced Retail Commissions (based on your PV for the month), making it possible for you to earn up to 48% on your own retail sales (see table 1). Each month begins a new cycle with the potential to earn one level on Enhanced Retail Commissions based on your PV for that month.
