Something Spooky This Way Comes

Have you heard about Paper Pumpkin’s September kit? It comes in a specially designed, scary-cute box and is full of everything you and your subscribers need to have a successful Halloween crafting experience. Click here to learn more about this frightfully fun kit and how to promote it to your customers.

Do’s and Don’ts of Personal Websites and Blogs 

Personal websites and blogs are powerful tools for developing your online presence. With great power comes great responsibility, though. We encourage you to read over the do’s and don’ts of running personal websites and blogs, so you can make sure you’re connecting with others—and complying with Stampin’ Up! policies.

Do

  • Include a statement that you are an independent demonstrator.
  • Include a statement indicating that your blog content is your sole responsibility and that Stampin’ Up! does not endorse your website.
  • Accompany images (taken from the Stampin’ Up! website or handmade projects you’ve created) with the appropriate Stampin’ Up! copyright notice (©).
    • (Images © [year] Stampin’ Up!)
  • Use the proper spelling of “Stampin’ Up!” with the appropriate punctuation and registered trademark sign (®).

Do Not

  • Use the name Stampin’ Up!—or anything deceptively similar—in the URL.
  • Represent yourself as the company or an official of the company.
  • Sell products directly from your website (with the exception of products allowed under the Cash-and-Carry Sales policy).
  • Have affiliate links to competitive products or companies.

For more details, go to the Internet/Website Policy and Competitive Activities Policy sections in the Demonstrator Policies document.

PREVIOUSLY ANNOUNCED

OnStage Display Board Stampers Needed 

As you know, we’re getting ready for exciting November OnStage events! Want to get involved? If so, we need demonstrators (of any title) who would like the opportunity to stamp projects for our OnStage display boards. Interested demonstrators must be planning on registering and planning to attend OnStage. 

If you are interested in being an event display stamper, here’s how to apply:

1. Create or collect your best work and include the following hand-stamped items: three card fronts (standard card size), one scrapbook page, and two 3D items. Display stampers will be selected based on the quality and creativity of their submitted artwork.

2. Create a single blog post, Pinterest board, or Demonstrator Business Web Services (DBWS) website post featuring good quality pictures of your projects. 

3. Fill out this application for consideration. We must receive your application by Monday, August 20, 2018.

Selected demonstrators will receive products and supplies to create samples for the event; they’ll also earn a post-event shopping spree. We look forward to seeing your work. Good luck!

Take 10 minutes before registration starts to read through the logo wear information and decide what you want to order. Find it all here.

Shakin’ Up November Recognition!

In an effort to better recognize you for your accomplishments, we’re shaking things up this November. Recognition celebrations will begin before OnStage and continue during and after the event! 

Before OnStage

The week before OnStage on November 1, we’ll post videos announcing our top performers—like a virtual celebration! These videos will include global 100; top overall in each country; and top in each country for sales, recruiting, and leadership. This will give you a chance to celebrate with those closest to you and watch some or all of the videos together. Gather your teams and other demonstrator friends and watch the award countdowns at your own recognition party! Watch for more details about this as November gets closer.

During OnStage

At check-in, each demonstrator will receive a ribbon representing their title. Demonstrators who achieved Quick Start, annual awards, or 160,000 flex points will receive a ribbon for their accomplishment. Top performers will receive a ribbon, charm, and memento for their ranked award. 

Throughout the event, we will have recognition marches or Stand & Waves for those who achieved Quick Start, anniversaries, title advancements, annual awards, 160,000 flex points, and sales milestones. Top performers will be invited to the stage as their name is announced. In addition, each location will have an achiever display, highlighting top performers. 

After OnStage

After OnStage, we will post achiever lists on the demonstrator website under In the Spotlight or send them out in Succeed Weekly, depending on the category. Top Performers will receive digital badges they can use on their blogs, social media pages, email signatures, etc. In addition, we will spotlight a number of top performers throughout the year. 

We hope you feel the love as we try some new things with recognition this year. We can’t wait to celebrate you and your accomplishments!
