What kind of incentives does the company offer?
- Straight to the Top is a fabulous program that helps you set only two attainable goals in a 90 day span. In your first 30 days, sell $300 and receive $25 in Select Product Credit; in your next 60 days, sell $900 and receive $75 in Select Product Credit. This IS doable and many have achieved it! Do both Levels and you receive $100 in free product over the 90 day period with only $1200 in sales overall!
- Cruise/Trip Contest: If you want to get a free vacation, you can earn one fabulous cruise for TWO with CTMH! I have earned 9 of them and the next one I’ll be on is the Southern Caribbean Cruise in February 2013! Can you picture yourself on a vacation for two? I wouldn’t want to miss any of them!
- Constant Campaigns is a program where each month the company has something to offer to help you grow your business in sales, recruiting, hostess rewards, or for you, the consultant. Sharing the ‘special deals’ helps boost your sales each month!
- Stamp of the Month: An exclusive stamp set @ an exclusive price! Each month it changes and you’ll want to ‘buy it now!’ A customer can purchase it separately for $17.95, but when they spend $50, they earn it for only $5.00! Another fabulous program that helps you upsell and increase your sales each month.
Does the company offer special promotions? ABSOLUTELY!
