Monthly Goals

“Every month, I create goals to help myself stay motivated and focused,” shares Nova. “They range from big goals like:

  • Personal Volume (ranges from 3,500-6,000 PV, depending on the month)
  • Online Jewelry Bars® (ranges from 6-8 a month, depending on my personal calendar)
  • Adding VIPs to Jewelry Bars (average of 3-5 VIPs per Jewelry Bar, times 6-8 Jewelry Bars a month)

To smaller goals like:

  • Customer Thank You Cards (30 every month, minimum) – I send a mix of Thank You Cards to new Customers, Customers who haven’t ordered in a while and consistent Customers.
  • Customer Personal Messages (at least 5 per week) – I send personal texts, video messages and voicemails to random Customers just to say ‘Hi’ and touch base on their lives. It has nothing to do with jewelry, but helps my personal relationships with them grow.”

Online Jewelry Bars

“I create a different online Jewelry Bar layout every month,” says Nova. “Yes, every single month! When you start to get bookings, your guests will get bored with the same posts and layout. I use the same formula and change the words, images, videos and the jewelry I show during my live portion.”

(You can find Nova’s formula on a podcast in the My O2 Connection app under Podcast > Maximizing Sales at Jewelry Bars or in your Back Office under O2 Training Academy > The O2 Experience 2018 Training > Maximizing Sales at Jewelry Bars)

“My formula never changes because it works for me,” shares Nova. “I focus a lot on Hostess training and follow up. Remember, not everyone will buy during a Jewelry Bar. Most people need time to figure out what they want and a Jewelry Bar doesn’t allow a lot of time. Make sure you connect with all the guests who ordered and those who seemed interested, but didn’t order. When the Jewelry Bar is over, reach out to everyone and give them the opportunity to be added to your VIP group.”

VIP Group

“My No. 1 rule is ‘Ask everyone before adding them to your VIP group,’” shares Nova. “I will leave my Facebook VIP group link on the Jewelry Bar page for guests to click on with a fun, exciting detailed reason why they should join. I ask the Hostess to list a couple of reasons why she loves my VIP group in the comments section on that post. If your Hostess loves your group, others will want to join. I also send a private message with my Facebook VIP group link and a ‘thanks for joining the Jewelry Bar’ once the online Jewelry Bar is over. My end goal is to add three to five new Customers to my VIP group. This continues to move my business forward.”

Stay Up-to-Date on Origami Owl News

“I know that for a lot of people it’s hard to stay ‘in the know’ with all things Origami Owl,” says Nova. “Turn on your notifications for the O2 Designers News from the Nest Facebook group and join Field Trainer Abby Teet’s Socially Unstoppable Facebook group. You will find tons of information, updates, special offers, words to use and ideas, and most importantly, it’s all on Facebook!”

Monthly Focuses

“Every month, I stay focused on:

  • The versatility of our jewelry
  • Connecting my Customers with different story ideas
  • Any new/current collection, and those coming soon per the Designer calendar
  • The Sale tab on our Personal Web Pages
  • Personal connections and building friendships with my Customers

This is my fifth year with Origami Owl, and my focus has never been stronger. Creating a Customer base does take time, but always remember that consistency is your best friend in this business. Do something today that your future self will thank you for!”
