Sales director Allyson Jankowski says you can earn a Mary Kay car by Christmas. The company gives you 4 months to do it, but you can do it in 3 months if you just know her “secret sauce.” Allyson spent 15 minutes on YouTube explaining this alleged secret sauce for quickly earning a car. And wouldn’t you know… there is no secret sauce at all.
You don’t have to watch the video, because I spent 15 minutes of my life (that I will never get back!) listening to Allyson’s drivel and I’m going to summarize it for you.
Allyson says the secret is you have to recruit 7 women in October, 7 in November, and 9 in December. If you do that, along with your own personal orders, you will have the $23,000 team wholesale production needed to get the car. You’re going to recruit more women in December because during December, more women will be “thinking like a retailer.”
Each month you have to have at least 10 parties of 3 or more women. You have to do at least 20 interviews. You’ll have to see a minimum of 30 women if you want to recruit 7. Where do you find these women? She doesn’t tell you. That’s the rub. The concept of having the parties isn’t difficult. The problem is finding the women who want to do it and who will actually follow through.
Allyson then gets to the good stuff. The secret sauce! Here are the steps to earning that car in less than 3 months:
- Make a decision that you’re going to earn the car
- Make a plan with your datebook for when you can work Mary Kay (you have to get in front of at least 30 faces in order to recruit 7)
- Book faces at the studio
- Put your schedule in a place your family sees it
- Go test drive the Chevy Malibu
Your eyes are not deceiving you. That is really the secret sauce she gives. Basically, just want the car and it will be yours.
Allyson closes with a bit of advice for manipulating women into booking an appointment with you. Appeal to their emotions and helping you with your goal:
“Girlfriend I’m going to be completely honest with you. I’ve got a really big goal that I have really put my heart on the line for, and that is to earn a free car by Christmas. Is there way that I could do a drive-by facial with you and see if there is anything you may need?”
Who is ready to earn their Mary Kay car???? And who thinks any of this advice is actually helpful?
