Paparazzi Accessories Overview

Paparazzi Accessories is a new direct sales company (like Scentsy, Pampered Chef, Mary Kay) that makes being fashionable affordable.  Our product is $5 accessories.   We provide women with cute and trendy necklace/earring sets, bracelets, earrings, headbands, clips and rings.  The starlet shimmer line is earrings, bracelets and rings for younger females (little girls, tweens, teens, college age and some adults will wear them.)  It is the same quality as found in Claire’s Boutique, but less expensive.  As an Independent Consultant, you have the opportunity to build a profitable business through selling the product and building a team.

There are 3 main reasons why starting a Paparazzi business is such a great idea.

  1. The product is $5 jewelry!   Women love $5 jewelry and they CAN afford it too!  Nowhere sells these accessories for less.  Even Walmart is more expensive.
  2. The company is NEW.   That means there are very few, if any, consultants in your area.   There is no competition for the same product.  You will be in demand when people know that you sell $5 accessories.  Not only can you do many parties and events, you can also build a team and be a leader.  Building a team is very profitable.
  3. The commission is 45%.  For each piece of jewelry you sell at $5, you make $2.25.  That adds up very quickly.   Additionally, when you have people join your team, you make between 5-10% off what they purchase from the Paparazzi website.  When they have people join, you can earn a little from their purchases too.   Once again, this adds up quickly.

There are MANY ways you can sell Paparazzi.

  1. Home parties.   At home open houses, people expect to buy and they come ready to shop.  They bring their wallets.   Some will bring their daughters and sometimes, a friend.  In my experience, an average party is between $200-250.   From the months of October through December, an average party is more like $250-350+
  2. Office Visit.   Working women LOVE Paparazzi.  Most of them have a little bit of extra money and they need to look professional for their jobs.  Paparazzi is a great way to add some professionalism for an inexpensive price.  Take a basket or small display into a business/office where women work.  Sell it on their lunch hour or leave it in the break room for a few days.  You will be happy you did.
  3. Basket Parties. Have people you trust take a basket/box of accessories to work, family reunions or other places to show their friends, family and co-workers.  When they sell the jewelry, they get free jewelry and you get money.
  4. Fundraisers. Raise the price to $6 and donate $2 for each piece sold to whatever cause you are assisting.   High school sports teams, music clubs, women’s shelters, cancer victims, dance teams, someone’s medical bills, non-profits or whatever else needs funds.   Either set up at an event or give “baskets” to the people involved in the fundraiser and have them do the work.  Either way, they benefit and you benefit.6.   Retail Businesses.  Paparazzi allows retail businesses to carry and sell their product and with a 45% commission, many will.  You can either consign (have them sell it for you – usually giving them some of your commission) or you can have them join as a consultant/distributor.  You get commissions when they order product for their stores or sign people up as consultants.  Bridal stores, gas stations, salons, beauty schools, gift shops, amusement parks, clothing stores and more.   There are many types of business that will carry Paparazzi.8.   TRADE!   Several times, I have traded my Paparazzi for services and products of others.   Haircuts, garage sale items, food, other direct sales products.   Many women (and men) are willing to trade their product or service for Paparazzi.
  5. Grow a team – When you tell people about Paparazzi and they want to make money selling Paparazzi, they can join your team and you get a little bit of commission from them.   5-10%
  6. Facebook Parties Facebook Parties are SO Easy. You just set up an event on Facebook as a LIVE Party and you post pictures of your inventory, People comment “SOLD” under the picture they want, at the end you just close the party and send them and Invoice. EASY!! The MOST I made have been $2515+
  7. Set Up in your Home!   Some consultants always have a display of Paparazzi set up in their homes.  People will come and shop when you are home. You can also set up outside and sell to people passing by.   The yard sign from Paparazzi is a great way to draw attention to you selling from your home.
  8. Fairs, Events, Boutiques, Flea Markets, Trade Days, Garage Sales, Consignment Sales, etc.   You can set up at an event and sell to all the people there.  Usually there is a booth fee.  This is a great place to make contacts, book parties, grow a team and sell jewelry.

How can I grow a team and what are the benefits? Right now, there are many women (and men) looking to earn money.   Either they are looking for a job or just need a little bit extra money to make ends meet.   When you are doing parties, talking with people at events or just know people who fall into the “need money” or “I like sales” category, tell them about Paparazzi.   Refer them to my blog.   Share this information and the newsletter with them.   When they decide to join, they will join your team.  You will get to be a leader and help them succeed.   When they join with a kit, you will get 15% and a little bit of commission (5-10%) from whatever they buy from the website.   The money adds up.  When your team members start talking to people and they join, you start getting more commission.   Growing a team can be very profitable.

How Does Paparazzi work?

Paparazzi is all cash and carry.  It is a great impulse buy.  Because it only cost $5, most people don’t have to plan to purchase and save and budget.  They just grab what they want and go!   There is no catalog.  No follow up.  No delivery.  In order for you to have a Paparazzi business, you must buy the product at wholesale ($2.75 per piece) and then you resell it for $5.   The profit is $2.25 per piece.  When you sell 50 pieces at a party, you make over $100 in two hours.  NICE!!!  You order what you know your customers will like and they come buy it from you in any of the above stated ways.   After you sell from your home, other people’s homes, businesses, events, schools, or office buildings the items you have, you order more and start the process all over again.   It is buying and reselling at it’s finest.  Paparazzi is ALWAYS rotating the jewelry.  New items come up on the website weekly.   There is never a guarantee that you are going to be able to get any item for more than a week or two.   Customers who become “addicted” to Paparazzi want to know what is new and want to come to your house when you get a new order in.   Some women are willing to host more than one party a year because they to see the Spring line and Fall line (and everything in between)!

How do I get started?  The best way to get started is to buy a starter kit.  They have 3 available.  I HIGHLY recommend buying a kit.   It will help you to be the successful from the very beginning.  The following is the cost of the kits and what comes in them.

I recommend either the $299 or $499 kit to get started unless you have a large event planned.   My best recommendation is the $499 kit. You can do 2 to 3 parties without reordering.  You can see what sells well in your area.  Your party will be awesome and you will book more parties because women are confident that you can provide their friends and family with a good variety of jewelry.

I recommend for any kit, you purchase at least one set of earrings, rings, and bracelets of the Starlet Shimmer items (younger girl items) and a yard sign.   These will NOT come in a starter kit and they will sell and assist you in being successful.    You kit will come with more necklaces than anything.   I also recommend getting more regular earrings if you buy the $299 kit.  You will probably only get 5 pairs of earrings. In order to make money with Paparazzi, you have to buy product so that I why I HIGHLY suggest, buying a kit.

How much do I have to order to maintain consultant status? Because Paparazzi is run by mothers, they understand that there are some months you need to take a break and shouldn’t lose your business because you are pregnant or helping with sick kids, etc.   In order to keep your consultant status, you only have to order 100 pieces in an entire year (12 months.)   That is the same as buying the smallest starter kit. 

If you want to retain the title of “Active Consultant,” you have to order 25 pieces in the month you want to be active.   In order to receive a commission check from your team, you need to purchase 25 pieces in the month you want your check.   Twenty-five pieces is about $72.  If you want to show up in the consultant finder on the Paparazzi website, you have to be Active.   I have had several team members be contacted from that site in the 3 weeks that it has been available who have either booked parties from it or had a person join their team.

How much is shipping?  When you order your inventory from Paparazzi, you will have a flat rate shipping fee of just $5.95 on orders that are less than $100 (before taxes). No per item fees, no weight-based shipping – just a flat $5.95. AND If you order $100 or more is FREE SHIPPING!

How long does it take me to get my product?  Paparazzi will package your product in 24-72 hours.   Usually, your order is packaged in the first 24 hours, but sometimes (if the company gets slammed with orders) it may take a day longer.  After it is packaged, it is delivered by UPS to your door.  However long it takes for UPS to get it from Southern Utah to your doorstep is how long it takes.   Most places in the USA will get a package within a week.   Plan ahead.

How does taxes work? When you purchase product, you are charged tax on everything costing $5 because that is what you are selling it for.  Then Paparazzi sends the collected tax to the state it was shipped to. The govt. requires Paparazzi to do it this way.   When you charge tax to your customers, you just keep the money collected and reimburse yourself for the tax you have already paid when you ordered.  You never will have to send in or report SALES tax to the state where you live.  At some events, you may be given a paper to record what you sold.   Just send in the paper saying that you are with Paparazzi with the tax ID from the company (call in and ask for the state ID).

If you choose not to charge tax, you will not be earning a 45% commission because you paid the tax that your supposed to pass onto your customers. You will need to report your income tax at the end of the year.   Keep track of what you buy, sell and any expenses for your business.   You can get some awesome tax deductions because of Paparazzi.  Phone, internet, car miles, part of your home and utilities can all be deductions.   Keep track from the very beginning!!!  And talk to a CPA when it comes time for taxes.  They can help you get back more than the fee they charged and they will help you stay in the guidelines.
