Q: How much does it cost to become a LuLaRoe Consultant?
A: In order to have an adequate selection of styles and sizes for your customers to choose from, LuLaRoe has determined that you need at least 300 pieces of clothing. To start, you will be ordering an “onboarding package” that includes sufficient items to throw a great party. The initial investment is $5,000 to $6,000 depending on which styles you select and choose to carry. You can always add more styles later, and trust me, you will want to.
Q: Are there any hidden startup fees?
A: Absolutely NOT! There are never any costs or fees to being a LuLaRoe consultant. The only thing you are paying for is the clothing. You buy it at wholesale to sell at retail.
Q: What if I decide LuLaRoe isn’t for me? Can I quit?
A: Yes! Life happens. LuLaRoe will buy back ALL of your unused clothing for 90% of what you paid for it. However, LuLaRoe has an unheard of retention rate of 88%. Most direct sales companies are below 30% retention rate. Basically, you won’t want to quit once you start, but you’re not trapped if you do.
A: Currently LuLaRoe is experiencing tremendous growth. In order to ensure that current and new consultants alike have sufficient inventory, LuLaRoe has placed a limit on how many consultants can join per day. The current wait time is 8-10 weeks to get onboarded, meaning after you submit your paperwork this is the amount of time you will have to wait in order to place your first order.
Q: How many LuLaRoe Consultants does the company currently have?
A: Currently there are roughly 10,000 LuLaRoe consultants nationwide. Compared to other direct sales companies, LuLaRoe is just in it’s youth. The potential for growth is astounding.
Q: Do I have to do in-home parties?
A: No. Though you will likely want to. LuLaRoe parties are awesome! You get to hang out with your friends, eat food, and try on great clothes! It’s a night out without the kids, what’s not to love? Also, your friends, neighbors, coworkers and acquaintances will be interested in the clothing. Making the clothing available to them will really boost your sales. You will find that once you throw in-home parties, you will gain regular customers who want to come back and shop for more, even if you are not throwing an official party. They may just stop by one day alone to buy more clothes, this is money in your pocket!
Q: Do I have to sell online?
A: No. Many consultants do really well without selling online, in fact, many prefer that face to face interaction of in-home parties. However, online parties are also a great way to have fun and make friends as they are held in intimate closed groups.
Q: Can I make my own prices for the clothing?
A: Yes, and No. You can sell your clothes for as much as you like, however, there is a base price that you cannot go below. Honestly, people are willing to pay for the clothes because of their quality and uniqueness. The clothes sell themselves.
Q: What is the profit margin?
A: 45-60% depending on the item
Q: Should I worry about over saturation in my area?
A: No. Each consultant has completely different inventory. Not all consultants carry the same styles, and if they do, they will each have entirely different prints.
Q: What about prints I don’t like? Can I return them?
A: Well, you could, but trust me, everything sells. Just because you don’t like it doesn’t mean someone else won’t. There are prints I thought would never sell, but when the right person comes along and tries it on, they love it, and you know what? It actually looks great on them! It’s a good thing we all don’t have the same tastes!
Q: How long does it take to earn back my initial investment?
A: Most girls on my team make back their initial investment within 6-8 weeks. When I started in 2014, it took me 3-4 months. I just had a consultant last week who made back half of her original investment in her launch party. It’s really up to you.
Q: Do I have to build a team to be successful?
A: No. You are your own business owner, you do what works for you! There is no requirement to build a team and train other consultants, you can make plenty of money just selling the cute clothes.
Q: How much does the top paid consultants make?
A: The top consultant sold $60,000 in January. The top team building consultant got a monthly bonus check of $107,000. You would be surprised to learn how many girls make a significant income!
Q: How much money do I make?
A: LuLaRoe is so much more than just making money, it's about providing a better life for my children and paying off debt. I made a video recently that goes over my experience and profits.
