A Simple explanation of Network Marketing and Why it Works by: Dioni Morales

Hello my Vessel friends. Today let's talk briefly about Network Marketing.  Yes, it is the business of the future, more and more products will find their way to consumers via people-to-people, mouth-to-mouth. Instead of the traditional way, Factory - Warehouse - Transportation - Store - Advertising - Consumer; it goes straight from the factory to the consumer, saving all the cost in between, and that's how you get your commissions. This is a very simple way of explaining where the big money comes from. 

Why does it work? Because studies show that 78% of consumers trust the opinion and endorsements of friends, while only 14% trust TV ads.

Who does it work for? Everyone. How many times have you recommended a restaurant, a movie, a hairdresser, etc, and you have never been paid a commission for it? Bingo, here you do, and you can actually make very good money. 

How does it work?  It's called, residual income. Most network marketing businesses will pay you a commission on all sales from those consumers you once signed up and most importantly, those who those same individuals signed up as well.  So this is the Magic, you will be getting paid commissions forever for ALL these people, and trust me, it ADDS UP!!!

This is why Network Marketing creates more millionaires than any other industry, and that's a fact. Now, do you want to join the list of new millionaires? Let's do it then!

Frequently Asked Questions, Part 2

We have been receiving a good deal of positive feedback regarding Dioni Morales joining the Vessel team as National Sales Manager!  We are so excited to have someone as talented and experienced as Dioni on board, and to be able to provide improved service to our Vessel Stylists as they begin to build their businesses.  Remember, Dioni has actual field experience building a downline ... AND helping you build yours is her main job.  So please don't ever hesitate to let her know if you have questions or would like assistance with anything.
As the Vessel business starts ramping up, we find that we have some additional questions coming up on a fairly regular basis.  As you hopefully know, our website contains an "FAQ" page, but some of the more recent questions are not on that page.  I'd like to take a moment to offer a few additional clarifications. 
Size of lockets
Many Stylists have expressed surprise at the size of some of the lockets once they receive their kit.  The photos of the lockets on the website are a bit misleading, in that the lockets all appear to be about the same size.  In fact, the sizes vary by quite a bit.  If you hold your cursor over each photo, a little sub-menu will appear which gives details about the actual size of the locket, as well as the finish.  The same is true of the chains, where the sub-menu will give information about the length of the chain and the finish. 
Special discount for Stylists
Hopefully all Vessel Stylists know this already, but we offer a one-time opportunity for Stylists to purchase ONE of each item NOT included in the Pre-Launch Stylist Kit at a 50% discount from the retail price.  As we have mentioned before, our Pre-Launch Stylist Kit is an excellent value, containing one of each of our styles.  If you would like to have a certain chain or locket in all the finishes, for example, you would be able to do so with this special discount.  Again, this is only intended for any item that you did not get in the kit, and does not apply to the charms or the ScentSpheres, since you already get one of each one of those items.  Also, this special discount is limited to the first 30 days after you join. 
When we begin issuing new styles, all Stylists will also have the opportunity to purchase ONE of each at the 50% discount.  Again, this will be limited to the first 30 days after the new style is introduced.  We will always announce new styles on our website, on this blog, on Facebook, and on Twitter. 
Finally, please be aware that the packaging of these special discount items will be the same as in the Kit; i.e., in plastic self-seal bags.
Purchase of additional sales aid materials
If you are interested in obtaining additional sales aid materials (order forms, Product Guide, etc.), there are two ways to do so:
  • Go to the Vessel online store (either by clicking the button on the Vessel website, or directly at and order there.
  •  Go to the "sales aides" page on the website, where you will find pdf versions of all of our materials, which you can print as needed.  Please be aware, however, that you are required to give your customer two copies of each order form, and you will want to retain a copy for yourself.
Notice about the ScentSphere™ Shapes 
You may have noticed that the shape ScentSpheres are actually a bit smaller than the round versions.  That fact, plus the fact that the surface area of the shape ScentSpheres is flatter, means that they could fall out of the following three lockets: the Rectangle, the Diamond, and the Teardrop.  The round ScentSpheres will be best for these lockets. 
New Hostess Rewards Special Incentive
Now through February 28, 2013, we will offer all customers who host a Vessel party a complete set of hair/lapel clip flowers for simply hosting the party. That's right ... regardless of how the party turns out relative to sales volume, they will get this set! They will also receive Vessel's incredible Hostess Rewards based on reaching minimum sales levels. Of course, they must actually hold the party in order to receive the special incentive.

We will post additional "frequently asked questions" to this blog as we receive them.  But please feel free to also call us at any time with your questions!

First Blog from Dioni Morales - National Sales Manager

Hello my Vessel friends, I am so excited to start with you on this journey that will change our lives forever. Last week was my official first days of work as I met for two entire days with Susan and Karen and it all became so real. What I've been hearing about for over a year; the beautiful jewelry, the incredible compensation plan, but most importantly the dream, all became palpable. As I sat down with them both, we talked about their ideas, their goals and where they want to take this company and all of us with it, and let me warn you, GET READY FOR THE RIDE! 

I've been involved with this industry, meaning the industry where you move an excellent product on a people-to-people basis, for over a decade and a half, and I have learned a lot, but today I want to just talk about one thing I've learned... I would never do anything else for a living! I'll explain why.  I've worked in Corporate America, I loved it (for the time being), I thought I had achieved my dreams, I even got to have the coveted corner office and mine happened to have the best view from the building of the Rocky Mountains. However, the more I learned about the freedom that this industry offers, the more I started seeing things that otherwise I might have overlooked. Corporate America can be a tough world, especially for a woman.  I had many bosses, some wonderful, some trying to do their best and some just right down awful.  I won't go into details of all my experiences, but having them is what made me not want to have a boss anymore, ever again.  I once heard a girl saying that she learned that when the company she worked for made good sales all that happened was that the owner's daughter got a $300 pair of new boots. I thought it was so funny, but it made me remember one year when the owners of the company that I worked with at the time, all wonderful human beings, announced that there would be no salary increases for anyone due to the foreseen economic crisis, hence the uncertainty of how many clients will renew their contracts, etc. However, just six months later we had an employee meeting where they happily told us that the goals were not only reached but surpassed, and there was a lot of clapping and "high fiving", but all I could think about was: "Well, where is our salary increase? Can't you do a mid-year salary increase?" But they didn't and people just kept on working hard to reach and surpass even more goals. 

Working with my schedule is another important reason why I love this business. I am the mother of 3 year old twin girls. They were born prematurely and were on monitors for 4 months and I could not even fathom the idea of going back to a full time job and missing any part of their young lives and entrusting their lives and health to others.  I am grateful that I knew enough about this business to be able to make the decision to quit Corporate America. As women and/or mothers, we all have different reasons to want to get involved with this type of business: whether you want to make a little bit of extra money to help the family; you are tired of working for someone else; you want to start saving for your kids college tuition; or you have big dreams of being a business owner and making big money with very little investment and no risk... you name it, this business is for anybody and everybody. 
In this industry, you are the boss, this is your business, if sales go up, no one but you gets that money, just the way it should be. This is why if you're anything like me, you want to work on your own terms, you want to be rewarded for YOUR job, and the job of those who YOU help, and you also want the freedom to do it in your own time.  This is why I will share my experiences with you to help, guide and motivate you to get as far as you decide you want to go. Once again, you're the boss, and being the boss, it's YOU and only YOU who decides the amount on that check you take to the bank.
