We are not moving away from our business model or from demonstrators—we would not be here if it wasn’t for you! In the end, we want the same thing you want. We want to remain a healthy company so we can continue to share what we love and make a positive difference to demonstrators, customers, and others throughout the world. We believe the best way to do that is to learn as much as we can about

> By doing what we ask you to do—going directly to people and inviting them to attend and book events, play with and purchase our products, and join our family and share what they love
> The needs and challenges of consumers
> By asking them directly
> By observing their behavior
> We have some great established channels to learn what our current demonstrators and customers want, and we’ll continue to use those channels to gather information. We also want to learn from those who are not current customers or demonstrators. Therefore, we’re reaching out through different channels that leverage new consumer groups with diverse interests and backgrounds. As a result, Stampin’ Up! may choose to create opportunities or participate in events that do not feature the Stampin’ Up! brand. We may not even announce ourselves as Stampin’ Up! And at times we may choose not to tell you about these tests in order for us to get better research data. In fact, if you come across something that you suspect may be Stampin’ Up! related, we ask that you simply pass it by so we can learn from those we don’t already have access to.

> Use of both Stampin’ Up! products and non-Stampin’ Up! products
> Research and inquiries regarding any or all Stampin’ Up! has to offer, including products, Career Plan, business services, events, etc.
> Stampin’ Up! products for sale in other venues such as trade shows, retail locations, websites, etc.

They’ve recently expanded their market research efforts to help them in this goal.”
