Why should I consider Norwex as a business opportunity?
We need more people to help share the Norwex mission! Currently, Norwex is in less than 3% of American homes! That means 97% of the American population have never heard about Norwex!! That’s 97 out of 100 people that have never used an Enviro Cloth & Window Cloth for their mirrors! 😲If you love the products and love sharing things you love with your friends, then I invite you to consider the Norwex Opportunity! People are ready to get chemicals OUT of their homes, but they also want products that WORK … Norwex is the best solution on the market! Our products are Safe, Affordable AND Effective!
What is it that is inspiring you to check out the business side of Norwex?
People start their own business like this for a variety of reasons! Some on my team chose it because they want to live a debt-free lifestyle, and Norwex provides a way to earn the extra to pay off debt. Others want to supplement their retirement with something FUN. For others, it’s all about the flexible schedule, being able to stay home with the kiddos or maybe the fact that there’s NO ceiling on the Norwex income potential. For some it’s paying for the “extras”, earning free trips, making new friends, teaching people about harmful chemicals and helping them live a healthier lifestyle.
- Meaningful work…we are a company with an AMAZING mission!
- Flexible schedule (allowing you to be a stay at home parent if you want or work your Norwex biz alongside your job)
- Incredible income potential (hobby income, full-time income, or big-time income–you choose!)
- A night out of the house… often including dessert, wine & great people
- An amazing team of people to work with
- Phenomenal team training & support (Planet Green Team has been named one of the TOP 2 Norwex teams for TEN years!)
- Recognition for your hard work from Norwex Corporate & our team (HELLO rewards & recognition!)
- Opportunities to develop as a leader
- A company that truly cares about their field of consultants and HEARS the feedback from their consultants.
- The ultimate way to Norwex your home…for FREE!
- Earning free vacations to FUN places with sunshine, ocean, and sand!
The list could go on and on, but what’s YOUR reason?
As a company, we are nearing a tipping point. The days where everyone says, “what is Norwex?” are almost over…and it won’t be long until Norwex is a household name. This is the perfect time to start a business with Norwex!
How much does it cost to get started & what products come in the Starter Kit?
The only up-front expense is $9.99! Norwex is so generous, they allow new consultants to earn their kits for FREE*!
Here’s what comes in the Starter Kit! So many great products and business supplies! There are even party cards to read at your first party if you’re nervous about what to say!
You mentioned that I can earn my Norwex starter kit for FREE? How do I do that?
You have TWO ways that you can earn your Starter Kit for free:
1. As a new consultant, when you have at least $1000 in Subtotal A retail sales in your first 30 days, you earn your kit for FREE! With the 35% consultant discount, $1000 in retail sales gives you about $350 in earnings! For many of our new consultants, they meet this goal with their 1-2 party sales! If you choose a Kit Builder, those sales also immediately count toward this $1000 sales goal!!! 😍
2. OR option #2…if you end up needing a bit more time than the 30 days, when you submit at least $2,000 in retail sales in your first 90 days, you earn the starter kit FOR FREE! And of course, you earn the income as well! The average Norwex party sales are $500+ So, that’s like doing 4 average parties in the next 3 months!
It’s as easy as hosting your own party and a friend or family member hosting one as well! Or it can even be upgrading your kit and collecting orders from family & friends!
Did I mention the consultant 35% earnings from $2,000 in retail sales is $700?!
Can I upgrade my starter kit so that I get more products when I first sign up as a consultant?
Yes you can! And I highly recommend doing so!
During sign up, you will have the opportunity to choose a Kit Builder. There are 3 different kits – Silver, Gold, & Platinum. I recommend choosing the Gold or Platinum.
These kits are only available at the time of sign-up. Here are the reasons I like them:
- In addition to the 35% consultant discount you get an EXTRA discount of 10% on these kits, as well as some free business supplies to help you get started!
- These products that are hand-picked to help you get off to the best start!
- The full 100% retail price of the kit is credited towards your $1,000 in 30 days (or $2,000 in 90 days) goal!
- You get the top-selling products into your hands super – FAST!
- By choosing the Gold Package, you also earn the fabulous New Consultant Reward Package right away, AND it counts as $448 toward your Subtotal A sales to earn your Starter Kit for FREE! (Yes, full disclosure: the Gold Package is my FAVE!!)
- A small investment for a BIG return!!! You’ll be so glad you took advantage of one of the packages.
Here’s what comes in the Gold Kit:
And that’s not all.
As a new Norwex consultant you can earn an ADDITIONAL box of FREE products when you have your first $400 in Subtotal A retail sales submitted!
What happens if I don’t have $1,000 in my first 30 days or $2,000 in sales in my first 90 days?
Most consultants earn their starter kits for free in their first month by having 1-2 parties! I love partnering with my new team members to help them meet their goals and earn income for their families! If something happens, and you aren’t able to meet one of these two goals, you would then simply pay $200 for your Starter Kit (it’s worth way more than that and you want these products in your home anyway)! The great thing is that even if you only sell $600 worth of product (i.e. your first party), with your 35% consultant percentage, you could earn $210. That would pay for your starter kit AND shipping!!
But let’s help you earn it for FREE!
What are my requirements to keep my Norwex Account Active?
You need to sell $250 (retail) in product in a rolling 3 month period to keep your account Active.
If you are buying the product for yourself that is about $162.50 at consultant cost with your 35% discount. The average party is $500-$600 so you’ll likely find yourself meeting these minimums without even trying! And… there is NO annual renewal fee as long as you meet this minimum requirement. Gotta love that!
Can I actually make money with Norwex?
Absoultely! The average party is about $200 in commission. So the more parties you do the more $$$ you make. Consultants who have the strongest start tend to have 4 parties in their first 45 days. This includes two of their own launch parties.
Whether you’re looking for an extra $200 a week, $1,000 a month or more, you can definitely earn income with Norwex! One thing I love about Norwex is EVERYONE can earn income! All consultants earn a 35% discount/commission!
You can also earn an additional stream of income by sharing Norwex with others and building a team! There are 7 levels of leadership you can progress through to make even more money as you grow your team by helping others reach their goals!
Whether you’re looking for extra cash to pay off debt, go on your dream vacation, stay home with your kids, remodel your house, replace a full-time income… I invite you to consider the Norwex opportunity! It’s been life-changing for me, AND, we get to make the world a better place at the same time!
Do I get anything special if I sign up this month?
Why yes you do! When you join in February, you get some added items to your Starter Kit!
When is the best time to sign up with Norwex?
I know when I was first getting started, I couldn’t get my Starter Kit fast enough! I knew I’d just figure it all out as I went! I was ignorance-on-fire (being totally clueless about the party industry), but I had a strong belief that these products needed to be in every home, which I still believe over 11 years later. I immediately started implementing the guidance that my leader provided and earned my Starter Kit for free within a few weeks! I believe that you can do the same!
If you’re more of a strategic planner, many of my new team members get their first 3-4 parties on their calendar before joining so they can jump right in. Super Success Tip: Schedule one or two parties within your first 2-3 weeks after sign-up to get off and rolling. We have awesome online workshop/ demo training, along with the party verbiage cards that come in your kit, so you don’t have to worry about not knowing what to do! We’ve got you covered! Just put the dates on your calendar! You’ll be so glad you did! 😍
Choosing one of the Kit Builder packages will allow you to get your Party Starter Kit & Kit Building Order in the mail ASAP so you’re ready to rock your first party!! Then determine how much income would be helpful to you from your new Norwex endeavor and plan how many parties (online or in-home) you will want to do to reach that goal. Aim to earn you Starter Kit for free with your Launch Party.
Here’s a quick video with some tips on helping you through the online sign-up process.
Are there any Norwex getting-started bonuses?
Remember how we talked earlier that you need to reach $1,000 or $2,000 in sales to keep your Starter Kit for free? Well, along the way you’ll be collecting sales and inviting others to join you in the Norwex journey (your team members), and in the process, earning even more free product and prizes through the Choice Rewards Program!
You can also reach team building goals when some of your peeps decide to join your Norwex team, including the $100 Promote & Grow Bonus when you become a Team Coordinator! There’s no better time to start adding team members than when you’re first getting started! That is what I did and it allowed us to learn together. It was immeasurably helpful to do this Norwex thing alongside people I loved hanging out with!
What an incredible, rewarding plan for just getting your business started right!
(Text me at 319-270-7822 to find out if there’s a special sign-on bonus this month!)
Do I have to pay for the Norwex host rewards?
This is a very good question! With some companies, consultants pay for the hosting gifts, but with Norwex, the hosting plan is 100% funded BY Norwex!!! This means you get to seriously pamper your hosts AND still take home your 35% independent consultant percentage! And the Hosting Plan is over-the-top generous!!! It is actually one of the KEY components that helped me build my business so quickly! And it will be that same help to you in your business!!
Do I have to do Norwex parties?
No, you do not have to, but you totally should because they are so fun! (Honestly, I didn’t understand the wonders of the party industry until I started doing Norwex!) With that said, many of my team members actually started for the discount, but once they used the products & saw how amazing everything is, they often end up telling everyone around them. And voilà, you have yourself the start of a potentially successful business. Norwex is very GENEROUS to consultants, you’ll find yourself wanting to earn all of the incentives they offer. Parties (both online and in-home) are an incredible way to get the word out about these life-changing products. But no, you don’t “have” to do parties!
How much time do parties typically take?
On average, I spend about 3-4 hours per party. For an in-home demo, I arrive about 20-30 min early to set up, give a 35-45 minute presentation (don’t worry, you can literally just use the party cards Norwex gives you- they are fantastic!!) and take orders from customers for about 30-60 minutes. You’ll also spend some time coaching your host to have the best party possible.
When I do online parties, the actual “party demo” is about 30 min long, with about another 20 min of questions and responding to comments. When customers place orders, they order directly from my host’s party ordering link. In my experience, the time needed for either a home or FB party ends up being fairly similar, although now that I am doing ONLINE Block Parties, I can fit more in and they are so much fun! As a member of my team, I’ll be sharing my online party formula with you!
So what if I’m not a party person? Can I build a Norwex business in other ways?
That was me. I was NOT a party person. I didn’t really go to them, host them, or really know much of anything about them. One thing I could see right away, however, is that a product like Norwex is best SEEN in action, so right away, I jumped in and did something that I couldn’t even believe I was doing – I hosted a launch party at my own home, which led to more home parties that my friends booked! And my business grew and hasn’t stopped growing for over 10 years now. Now I can actually say I love in-home Norwex parties.
Yes, there are other options to build your business; you can do online parties, you can share the products more one-on-one, you can do trade shows or vendor fairs, you can do pop-up demos when you’re out & about at sporting events, you can market your business on social media…. or you can do all of the above! Truth be told, the potential here at Norwex is so big that when I started, I had “Norwex insomnia” for about 5 years just thinking about different ideas to implement in my business! You’ll find what works best for you.
Do I need to purchase and keep Norwex inventory?
No, you don’t! Consultants don’t need to keep any inventory. Everything can ship directly from Norwex to your customer or host.
How do I get trained & what kind of support can I expect?
This is a super important question.
Our team was named the #1 team for five years in a row. Our team was also the first team to reach the top level of the company, Senior Vice President and was most recently named one of the first four Silver Senior Vice President teams GLOBALLY. One of the reasons for this growth and success is EXCELLENT training and support, and an incredible team culture.
As your Norwex sponsor, I’ll be your go-to person and mentor & I open up my personal business coaching to you, as my personally-sponsored team member, as your build your business. We have Planet Green Team gatherings, weekly training calls, as well as an incredible online team support group and training website. As a company, Norwex also offers fabulous consultant support and an incredible Consultant Care Team!
Our training & support resources are above & beyond!
Can I earn free Norwex trips?
Yes!! I LOVE travelling on our Norwex incentive trips, they are truly fabulous trips! It’s usually somewhere warm and sunny and by an ocean, which is amazing! Our upcoming incentive trip will be in Hard Rock Punta Cana, Dominican Republic!! On past trips, we’ve been to Hawaii, Caribbean islands, Panama, Punta Cana, Cozumel, Maui, Cabo, Costa Rica, Riviera Maya and more! These have been trips of a lifetime, many of which have been at all-inclusive locations like the Hard Rock Resort!!
And the best part is that they are very achievable! I achieved a trip my first year just by doing an average of 2 parties per week and inviting others to join my team as I went. It would be amazing to have YOU on our next Norwex adventure! (Our next trip earning period is happening, so you’ll be jumping in at a great time!)
What if I try this and decide Norwex isn’t for me?
That is completely ok! There is no penalty and no cancellation fee. You would simply have a lot of fabulous Norwex products in your home and get to enjoy the consultant 35% discount as long as your account is active.
Is Norwex a scam or a pyramid scheme?
No, it is definitely not a pyramid scheme. Pyramid schemes are illegal. Norwex is a direct selling company in the home-party industry that sells incredible, (dare I say life-changing), top quality products to customers. Our consultants earn 35% consultant discount. I often get asked, “Is this Network Marketing?” No, it is not. There are some very key business model differences.
And it definitely is not a scam – these products are truly transformative for our homes, and we have thousands of satisfied Norwex customers who rave about their Norwex!
I absolutely love the Norwex business plan. It is amazing, amazing, amazing and super simple, too! So many of my team members are earning a full-time income thanks to this career plan!
Here’s a quick video explaining the basics, and I’d love to answer any other questions you have.
How long has Norwex been in business?
Norwex started in 1994 in Norway. “Norwex” stands for “NORWegian EXperience.” They expanded to Canada in 1999 and in 2012, became a US company.
Norwex is now in many countries around the globe. If you are looking to join from one of our open countries, I am also a Norwex Global Sponsor & can help you get started. Our mission is to “improve quality of life by radically reducing chemicals in the home.” Something that’s so important to me is that Norwex is a debt-free, financially-sound company. That is SO important when choosing a business to start.
Can I read the small-print about becoming a consultant?
