Salon and Spa owner Sharon’s Powerful Nerium Story!

by Betsy Smith


8d177fedbWith just one product so far (an anti-aging night cream) and in one country, Nerium International sold $100 Million in product in its first full year.  That is a testimony to the fact that it works.  And the company even banked everything on its before and after pictures and a 90 day contest for customers.

Now just over 1 ½ years following its launch the company and its flagship product are selling like hot cakes. The power is in a relationship marketing model and a person-to-person buzz that is generated when people love a product.

But also some Spa’s and Salons LOVE the simplicity of the one step product and also the simplicity of selling it in their business.  Nerium also has a program where they give FREE inventory back to its Brand Partners, something business have never seen.

Here is a powerful story by a Salon owner that speaks to the power of this business.

Sharon’s story:

I’m looking at my retail shelf reserved for Nerium AD right now and just shaking my head. Running my finger across the glass, I realize it doesn’t even need to be dusted because it’s only been a minute since the last bottle left the shelf. What is this craziness?!

As the owner of a salon, I am thrown hundreds of samples a year and most of them end up on the back bar or in the hands of my stylists. Sadly, many just find the trash can or lay dusty up on the shelves underused and underappreciated.

One day unbeknownst to me, an unusual sample was brought into my salon and left in the hands of my salon manager. It somehow found its way into her bathroom at home. It strangely made its way onto her face and neck every night for three weeks without me knowing, or without anyone else at the salon knowing. People started talking. It created a stir. We thought she had some “work done”.  Her fine lines and wrinkles were disappearing before our eyes. Her laugh lines were gone although somehow she seemed quite a bit more happy than she had been three weeks prior. Clients were noticing and commenting. Asking what she had been doing to her skin. No one dared ask the BIG QUESTION. That’s just rude you know!

Except for me, you see. I’ll come out and ask anyone anything at anytime. It just spills out of my mouth at the most absurd times without any warning and at the most inappropriate times. I try not to, but this force takes over and I lose against it every time. And so it was at lunchtime with my salon manager that the force was with me and I lost the ability to control holding back the words any longer. So with mouth full of food the words burst forth…..”Did you have some work done to your face because it looks so incredible!”

She looked like a deer in the headlights for a moment, then composed herself quickly and said no, that she had not. Wow. Now I felt like an idiot. I questioned then what she had been doing because she looked so amazing. She looked slightly guilty for some reason. She then admitted taking home the bottle of “NEXIUM” without having told me. I asked her why she was putting acid reflux medication on her face. Clearly she had the name wrong.  We’ve laughed long and hard about this one.

However, story told had she not secretly taken the bottle home, I wouldn’t have these amazing reports to give you. In just over one month this is what has happened at my salon.

I signed up to be a Brand Partner with Nerium AD because all the clients and stylists see Sue (the manager) and her continued improvement which is REMARKABLE!! They wanted the product.

I purchased a Success Pack which contains 5 bottles of Nerium AD. I opened the box when it arrived and all 5 bottles were gone within 2 days (two bottles sold within 30 seconds of opening the box).

I then purchased a blitz pack which contains 15 bottles of Nerium AD. Within one and a half weeks of purchase all 15 bottles were gone. Bottles sell for $110. (there was a waiting list).

Since I no longer have bottles on the shelf I signed up 9 preferred clients, which means the product gets shipped directly to their door (and I get free bottles shipped to me for signing up preferred clients).

I placed a television screen or you could also place a digital photo frame in the reception area displaying before and after photos of real people using Nerium AD and the results they have had with the product. This really gets people asking lots of questions and stirs incredible interest. This was so easy to do!

In right around 7 weeks I have made $1200 pure profit and also won a free IPAD from the company. I have $1430 in free Nerium AD  bottles coming to me as a bonus in the next month. Also, I will be driving a Lexus thanks to the Nerium Lexus car bonus in the next month. I’m thinking a beautiful white convertible! I am so excited I can hardly sleep at night. I never saw this coming.

This company is new to the area and the time to become involved is NOW. Do not wait. Call me.

The product is simple. Wash your face. Put it on. Rinse in the morning. Done. Repeat the next night.

With all the struggling there is in the salon industry to keep our heads above water, we tend to ignore those samples that come in the door or disregard them as just another annoying product some salesperson brought in. Do not make that mistake this time. Take it from another salon owner. THIS ONE IS A WINNER! Your clients are already totally into looking beautiful! Take it one step further. It really does sell itself!

I hope my story has inspired you to look further into this opportunity!
