It feels like I should be sitting in a circle, in a church basement speaking to an addiction group when I say this. “I’m an independent designer with Chalk Couture and can’t stop making beautiful things!” Actually I do have to admit I am a little addicted to this product.
To be honest I’ve loved crafting for as long as I could remember. When I was a kid a group of girls in the neighbourhood created a club “the tiger club”. I don’t think we ever did anything but I do remember meeting in our garden shed and me making some really pretty stationary. I also remember spending hours and hours making a house for my Barbie. Each room was a cardboard box. There was carpet on the floor and curtains in the windows. No details were missed, I even had “artwork” on the walls!! Like I said, I was born a crafter.
A way of life
To me crafting is part of my life. It gives me such satisfaction and most days I find it very relaxing. Yes there are days when I make mistake after mistake and things don’t turn out how I envisioned but generally crafting is my happy place.
When I first heard of the Chalk Couture I admit I didn’t jump at the opportunity. I’d been with a couple of other direct sales companies which didn’t work out so was determined that I wasn’t going to commit to another one. However after seeing many beautiful images of Chalk Couture designs on line and watching numerous videos I decided to give it a try knowing that worst case I’d have some cool new crafting supplies!
Looking back now I’m so thankful I took the plunge. If you are reading this now you may also be thinking of becoming a designer and I’m sure if you have lots of questions. I’ve put together my list of reasons why I love being an independent designer with Chalk Couture to help guide you in your decision. You may also want to check out my previous post where I answer many of the most common questions about the Chalk Couture business.
Eight Reasons why I love being a Chalk Couture Independent Designer
I get to make pretty things!
What better reason is there than this one! I get to make beautiful high end décor items for my home, as gifts or to sell. Our incredible products allow me to personalize pretty much any surface in only a few easy steps with a few basic supplies
Value for money
The old saying “you get what you pay for” is so true. I have full confidence when selling Chalk Couture that my customers will be getting amazing quality products. Our frames are extremely well made and the boutique boards solid wood. The high standard or materials and design goes for everything from the quality pigments in our chalks and inks, heavy duty canvas for our banners and cushion covers and even the application tools.
All age and skill levels welcome
I can honestly say ANYONE can use the products from Chalk Couture. Any age, any skill level. I participated in a camp last summer with 4-5 year old’s who used their fingers to apply the chalk on simple designs. I’ve run workshops for skilled crafters who love to experiment with different chalk techniques and layering multiple transfers. Our products can and should be used by everyone! One of the things I love most about workshops is the look on my customers faces when they pull back the transfer and see what they have created – priceless!
Incredible Customer Service
I have been thoroughly impressed with the customer service from Chalk Couture. Weather it is a simple question about product, order status or on the rare occasion warranty the customer service team are amazing. Always friendly and prompt to resolve any issues I may have. On the rare occasion I’ve received a product that has been damaged or defective, customer service responds quickly and efficiently to get a replacement out to me right away. Hey we all know mistakes happen in life, it’s how they are dealt with that leave a lasting impression.
Incredible up line support & training
Corporate provide an amazing “chalk university” and sends out informative emails weekly to new designers so that can hit the ground running. Also as an independent designer your back office is FULL of information about the company and products. There is also a slew of information in Facebook groups and the Chalk Couture YouTube channel. I am also truly blessed with the leadership on my direct team. Not to brag but if you are thinking of joining Chalk Couture, our team is the one you want to be part of!!
So many ways to sell, promote and enjoy this product
Admit it, we all work differently. Some of us love to network and participate in events. Others are more comfortable working on line and promoting their business on social media. There are those who love to teach and run workshops and others who prefer to get their hands dirty and make products to sell. Well I’m happy to tell you with Chalk Couture you can do it all!!
Making money doing what I LOVE
Weather you are looking to promote and sell directly from your web site, make finished products to sell, run workshops, there is great earning potential with Chalk Couture.
You earn 40% commission when you resell the inventory you purchased through your Designer Office.
For example: $1,000 (retail) – $600 (Designer Price) = $400 (40% Instant Commission)
If someone visits and purchases directly from your Chalk Site you earn 25% commission.
$500 x 25% = $125.
When selling finished products you get to decide on the profit you want to make. Everyone calculates this slightly differently and it depends on your area and market but if you are a maker Chalk Couture can definitely help you pay the bills.
