Update for SOAR Saturdays in 2017

The October SOAR Saturday Live from The Nest was a huge hit! In fact, it was such a huge success, we’re changing up SOAR Saturday!

Starting in 2017, there will be four SOAR Saturday events hosted by Origami Owl—the first one will be live from the O2 L.E.A.D. Empowerment Summit on Saturday, January 14 from 11 a.m. CT until approximately 1:15 p.m. CT. We’ll reveal the Spring 2017 Collection and many other announcements you won’t want to miss!

We’ll also host a SOAR Saturday LIVE event in April, one in July from The O2 Experience and another in October. These are the perfect opportunities to get your teams together and get your game plans set.
Watch for more details on the upcoming SOAR Saturday on January 14!

Jumpstart to Owlchiever Updates for 2017

We’re always looking at ways we can improve our programs and we’re thrilled to share that Jumpstart to Owlchiever will be receiving a few updates in 2017.

Starting January 1, you may notice a change to the Jumpstart to Owlchiever Tracker in your Back Office. Not only are we simplifying the name to “O2 Jumpstart,” but we’re also changing the requirements a bit in 2017.

O2 Jumpstart Updates
New Designers who join O2 beginning January 1, 2017 will be enrolled in the updated, O2 Jumpstart Program.

Our goal with this updated program is to give new Designers an incentive to achieve the following two requirements within a calendar month:

•    Generate 500 PV in a calendar month
•    Personally Sponsor (1) New Active Designer – the Designer must also generate 99 PV in the same calendar month in which they are sponsored.
o    An Active Designer = 99 PV in a calendar month

The rewards for the O2 Jumpstart Program remain the same during the Jumpstart Period:
o    1st time = $50 USD | $70 CAD O2 Credit
o    2nd time = $100 USD | $140 CAD O2 credit
o    3rd time = $150 USD |$210 CAD O2 credit

Designers will still earn double Owlchiever Points during their Jumpstart Period
A maximum of 5 Jumpstart Bonus Points can be awarded each calendar month, with a maximum total of 15 Jumpstart Bonus Points during the duration of their Jumpstart Period.

So, what about current Designers who are participating in Jumpstart to Owlchiever?

Anyone currently in their Jumpstart Period, (their enrollment month plus the next  3 full months) will continue to be eligible for O2 Jumpstart Program under the new requirements starting on January 1, 2017.

o    Those Designers will begin the new program with the months they have remaining and will be eligible to earn the rewards they have not yet earned.
o    They will earn the remaining rewards based off of the new requirements/qualifications.
o    The reward levels remain the same – only how they earn changes.

So, as you can see, 2017 is going to be one OWL-mazing year for you and your teams! Gather your Better Together Challenge team and register in your Back Office by January 6, 2017. Then mark your calendar for the first SOAR Saturday LIVE of the year on January 14 starting at 11 a.m. CT.
