Here’s everything you need to know about becoming a Norwex consultant!
These are my personal perspectives, based on my three years as a Norwex Independent Sales Consultant. I’d be glad to answer any additional questions! Feel free to contact me using this form. I also list my e-mail, cell phone and Facebook contact information at the end of this page!
How do I sign up?
You can sign-up quickly on my Norwex website! I recommend talking to your friends and family and scheduling your first few parties first, though. The timing matters – by having parties soon after joining Norwex, you can earn around $700 in free products for your home!
Why should I sign up?
Norwex is a generous, supportive company, with a mission you can believe in! We are here to improve quality of life by radically reducing chemicals in our homes. You’ll have a flexible job, earn commission on every sale, get a major discount on your personal orders, earn free products, and will be able to give your hostesses so many free products!
Why did you choose Norwex over other direct sales companies?
I chose Norwex because I love our products! I wanted to share the EnviroCloth with a few friends. Then I ended up building a small business that I love! I’ve stayed with Norwex because I believe in our mission and I have such a wonderful time working this job. Helping my teammates, building relationships with my hosts and customers, and making a difference in families’ lives all matter to me! This is a job I can believe in. It’s helpful to my family financially, allows me to give many free products to my hosts, and just makes me so happy. I’m glad to be part of the Norwex family.
Talk to me about the income I’ll make.
That’s entirely up to you! Joining Norwex is a great way to save for your kids’ summer camp fees, Christmas gifts, a special vacation, or to pay off your bills. You can be a casual consultant, a part-time consultant, or build a steady income from this opportunity.
The average party earns about $200 in commission. If you want to have one party a month, that will give you a little extra spending money. If you want to have several parties a month, you could cover several bills that way! And there’s no limit to how big you can build your business — there’s infinite potential with Norwex! If you build a team, you can earn monthly income based on your own parties and your assistance to your teammates.
Can I host my own parties?
Yes, you can host your own parties, which means you’ll earn commission on those sales and could also get hundreds of dollars in free products (the host rewards). I love being able to earn free products for my home this way! You can also donate the host rewards to people in need, use them as party prizes, or add them to your party demo kit!
Norwex also offers its consultants monthly and quarterly incentives, where we can receive additional free products. So we’re not only rewarded with commission, but also earn a lot of free cleaning supplies, personal care products, items for our kitchens and laundry, and more.
Will joining Norwex help me save money?
The free products we receive add up to significant savings for most families! You’ll be saving money by using Norwex and not needing to buy numerous disposable cleansers and paper products. The average U.S. family spends $600/year on cleaning supplies. If you no longer need to spend that $600, and instead get free, healthy cleaning supplies, your family will benefit! This is why some people join Norwex primarily for the consultant discount. They earn free and discounted products, as well as commission, by having several parties per year. And their families benefit by eliminating that $600/year expense of housecleaning supplies!
Will I make money when I help others start their own businesses?
Yes, you can earn Norwex shopping sprees by sponsoring new Norwex consultants! And if you build a team of consultants, you’ll earn a percentage of their sales, as long as you are still actively selling Norwex and working your business, too. If you want this to be your career you can build a team and work Norwex as a meaningful, full-time job! Norwex will encourage your success!
I’ve found it personally rewarding to help others join Norwex. I love leading my team of consultants! Joining Norwex is one of the best decisions I ever made, so I love helping others make Norwex part of their lives.
What comes in my Party Starter Kit?
You want the mop, right??!!!! It’s here, with so much more. All of this comes in your kit:
How much does it cost to start my business?
Norwex wants you to succeed! The company basically sponsors us when we’re new. Therefore, the Party Starter Kit is FREE. There’s just a $9.99 shipping fee! It’s a generous offer: You’ll receive our most expensive product — the Superior Mop Collection — as well as two EnviroCloths, a Window Cloth, Dusting Mitt, Bathroom Scrub Mitt, Body Cloths, Fruit and Veggie Scrub Cloth, samples of key products like Ultra Power Plus laundry detergent and Cleaning Paste, party flash cards, catalogs, order forms, and other business supplies!
To earn your kit for FREE, Norwex asks you to achieve a sales goal. Norwex gives you 90 days to sell $2,000 worth of product. Now don’t freak out….the average party is just over $600. So achieving the $2000 goal in 3-months isn’t hard at all! Think of it as having four $500 parties. You can try this for four parties, right?!!
If you don’t meet your $2,000 goal in 90 days, you just pay $200 for your starter kit. The kit is worth more than that! So this experience is well worth trying! It’s usually life-changing for the consultant and their family.
How about this back-up plan: Could I save my first party’s commission to cover the cost of my kit? Yes. If you have any concern about earning your free kit, this strategy will put your mind at ease. The average party is just over $600. If you save the commission from your first $600 in sales, that will be $210 in your savings account, ready just in case you don’t achieve the $2,000 sales goal. It would cover your $9.99 shipping fee and the $200 fee for the kit. Most new consultants qualify without difficulty, though! In my case, I could only do Facebook parties when I first joined Norwex, and I still qualified in less than 8 weeks. I also received hundreds of dollars worth of bonus free products through the FreshStart Rewards program! I was thrilled – I had no idea that I’d receive so many packages with free products from our company.
What’s this about MORE free products?
I’m so excited to tell you about this! Norwex encourages and rewards your early success. They’ll send you hundreds of dollars in FREE extra products if you reach certain goals in your first 90-days. Here’s what you can earn with the FreshStart Rewards Program!
The countdown to earning your FreshStart Rewards begins as soon as you sign-up as a consultant (prior to your kit arriving). Please talk to your friends and family and schedule your first few home parties. Then sign up in time to have your Party Starter Kit arrive before your first home party. If you enjoy using Facebook, it’s a good idea to have a Facebook Party right after you sign up, so you’ll immediately begin entering sales and qualifying for your FreshStart Rewards. I’d be glad to help you with your first Facebook event.
How do new consultants Triple Dip?
You can earn three kinds of rewards from your launch party!
- You’ll earn 35% commission on the party!
- If you host your own launch party, you’ll earn free products (host rewards). Those are usually worth around $200!
- You’ll earn the FreshStart Rewards (If you sell $400 in your first 15-days, you’ll receive $130 in free products!)
What an amazing way to begin — with a free party starter kit, commission, host rewards, and FreshStart rewards!
Can I upgrade my kit?
- You only pay the 35% discounted price
- The full retail price counts toward your $2,000 goal
- Your kit shipping fee remains low ($9.99) despite adding the upgrade
- You’ll get the most popular products immediately
- Less concern about meeting your FreshStart goals — you’ll get there faster!
The starter kit upgrade options are:
Could I purchase products from my own launch party?
Yes, that’s also a good option! You can shop your own launch party using your consultant discount. If you do so, your purchases will help you earn that party’s Host Rewards and will also count towards your FreshStart Rewards! Norwex party hosts earn 8-12% of their party sales as a Host Shopping Spree, so when you shop your own party you’re not only getting commission (or your consultant discount) and free products, but it’s also like getting an 8-12% rebate on your purchase when you close the party and claim your Host Dollars.
What are the minimum requirements to stay a consultant? Can I be a casual Norwex consultant, just joining for the discount?
We do not have monthly minimum sales — this is a flexible business! Focus on earning your free kit by achieving your sales goals in your first 90-days. After that, you’ll find it easy to remain a consultant even if you can’t host frequent parties. You’ll only need to sell $250 in product in a rolling 6-month period to remain a consultant. There’s no fee to renew your status as long as you meet the minimum sales requirement to not go dormant. Since the average party is just over $600, it’s quite easy to remain a consultant!
If you decide to join just for the discount, I suggest having 4-6 parties in your first two months, to be sure you earn your kit for free. After that, plan on having a home party every six months. That’s the easiest way to get at least $250 in orders every six months. You’ll help your friends go green and will maintain your consultant status. You’ll earn host rewards for those parties, so twice a year you’ll also have the chance to earn free products for your home!
Is it worth it to keep up a consistent party schedule?
Yes! Norwex offers monthly incentives to consultants where we can earn free cloths and catalogs. For example, when I sell $1,500 in product in a month, the typical reward is earning 10 free catalogs and several free cloths. I find that by having 3-4 parties per month, I’m able to keep earning free products and catalogs and I have the momentum needed to keep my business going. The standard pattern for success is to schedule 4 parties per month, get 2 bookings from each party, and have 2 conversations about the business opportunity at each party. When you’re on a roll like that, it’s fun and profitable!
Are there any ongoing costs?
When you’re a new consultant, Norwex will give you two months of Consultant Office Suite for free. After that, you can opt-in or opt-out to the service, which only costs $9.99/month. I love this service! It allows my customers to place website orders and to easily join my team; helps me reach my customers through an e-mail newsletter; provides me with text notifications about orders, shipments, and more; and gives me access to statistics to help me with my business. I can opt-in or out of the service at any time.
Your party starter kit will come with catalogs and order forms. If you’re having an average of four parties per month, you’ll probably earn all the new catalogs you’ll need for free! If you take a break from partying and then need to buy new catalogs, the cost is low. (As of February 2017 it costs $7.50 for 10 catalogs. And the cost for customer order forms is $9.99 for a pack of 100 forms.) These ongoing business costs are minimal compared to the income you’ll make from parties!
How many days a week does the average consultant work?
Your schedule is up to you! When you’re new, plan to work for at least an hour or two every day for the first few weeks, while you are learning about Norwex products and getting acclimated. Think of it like any new job: it comes with a training period. It’s worth putting in the time to do this well! After you become familiar with Norwex products and how to run your business, your schedule will become very flexible. I work a bit every day, because that’s an important part of staying in touch with my awesome hosts and customers! I work at my laptop while my toddler is napping, and text my happy customers at other quiet times in the day. Norwex does not require monthly sales, so if I need to take time off, I can do that! (I’ve taken time off for childbirth, Christmas, summer vacations, and other family needs.) If you’d like to be a casual consultant, enjoying the 35% discount on products and just entering a few parties per year, you can choose a very flexible schedule! This will be totally up to you.
Who pays for the host’s free products?
Norwex does! My hosts usually get $200 to $300 in free products from Norwex! I’m delighted when I get to tell them how much they’ve earned.
Now that I’ve been a consultant for several years, I’m seeing previous hosts book their second parties with me, because they enjoyed their host rewards and want to earn more!
Will I have to keep inventory or make deliveries?
No, you don’t need to carry any inventory. Norwex will ship products right to your customers’ homes. You will probably want to keep a few small cloths on hand to use as door prizes, but that’s up to you.
Talk to me about the support I’ll receive as a new consultant.
One thing I love about Norwex is how well organized the support is for new sales consultants! Norwex offers weekly webinars and phone calls for new consultants, designed to guide you through your first month as a consultant. Your Consultant Office Suite has a well-designed section called “5 Easy Steps to Get Started.” Its five tabs will guide you through your Norwex launch party, product training, marketing, host coaching, and staying informed. You’ll find videos of sample parties, webinars and apps explaining how our products work, and links to plenty of Norwex-approved images that you can use on Facebook. We also have a great online community where consultants answer each other’s questions.
When you join my Norwex team you’ll be added to a friendly, supportive group where you can ask any question. I offer my team mates assistance in planning their Facebook parties. My group is called the Creative Clean Team, because we love to collaborate and help each other!
