How do I find people to host parties?

Tip: Try offering similar incentives to your guests who sign-up to host your next party.

How do I know what size bracelets my customers wear?
We have found that due to the adjustable clasp on the chain bracelets and the flexibility of
the bangle bracelets that all bracelets fit most wrists.
How many beads fit on a bracelet?
It is up to the customer how many beads feel comfortable on the bracelet, but we have found that the average bracelet fits between 15-20 beads.
Tip: A bracelet with 15 beads retails for $43.50, we suggest running a "Full Bracelet Special" for $40.
How do I put the beads onto the bracelet?
To put the beads on the bracelet, first remove the lobster claw clasp at both ends. Once removed, you will be able to easily slide on the beads and when finished re-attached the lobster clasp to the chain. To put beads onto the bangle bracelet, unscrew of the silver balls from the bangle. Slide the beads onto the bracelet, and when finished screw the ball back onto the bangle.
How do I collect money from my customers?
That is up to you! We recommend collecting cash, but personal checks may also be a convenient option with the checks made out to you.
Can I return and send-back goods that aren't sold?
Once you purchase the kit, the beads are yours. We recommend offering discounts on beads that are not selling at your parties and fill its spot with new styles that you can order on our website. In case of any defective product, please email Lisa Blanchard at email@example.com for our return policy.
Once I order my kit, do I owe Janlynn any money for my party sales?
No! Everything you sell at your parties is your profit, and that is the key to making the program an easy way to make money and have fun!
Tip: As an added incentive for your host, consider offering the hosts a % of your sales instead of free jewelry or discounts.
