How I found mark.: mark. thru La Femme Plus

During the beginning when I contemplated doing a beauty blog, being involved with something that represented beauty had become a big deal to me.

It was not enough that I bought makeup, beauty products, fashionable clothes and accessories. I wanted to be a part of something that represented beauty for all the beautiful people out there.

Over the past year I have befriended and liked so many different types of products on Facebook. Then, like an epiphany, I saw a facebook page that seemed to have everything I was looking for. But this page seemed different. The lady who ran this page always had an answer to any question I asked. To me, she presented herself exactly the way I wanted to and what do you know...the product she represented was mark.

Her name was Kerri Augustine and after finding her mark. facebook page, I ordered items from her several times and always noticed posts about how I could get this fabulous deal: $100 worth of makeup for only $20+ tax. I would have no quota's or deadlines to meet and best of all, no hidden fees. I could sell as little or as much mark. as I wanted to. And if I didn't want to sell mark., I could use the lifetime discount to buy products for myself.

Finally, after reading Kerri's daily mark. post, I decided to take her up on that offer. I fell in love with mark. and all it's class, style, confidence, quality, and most of all, products!! Kerri showed me that not only would I get these awesome products, I would also have the honor to present mark. the same way that she did!

So, that is how I became a mark. representative. And this weekend I launched my mark. eboutique (
and began my very own mark. facebook page:
mark. thru La Femme Plus

To honor my launch of becoming a mark. representative, my mark. eboutique and my mark. facebook rep. page, I decided to interview Kerri Augustine, the woman who inspired me to take on this new adventure in my life and how to hit the ground running!

This is Kerri Augustine and here's her mark. story:

When did you start representing/selling Mark.?
I signed up with mark January 2011 , not even knowing I was signing up to become a mark rep. I saw this amazing makeup kit and I had heard of mark through the grape vine before just never had tried it . So for $20 I was totally going to sign up and get this amazing $100 kit. Once I signed up I got a rep # ? I was a little worried because most companies require you monthly quotas and deadlines. I immediately started researching in the site, found out I had a FREE e-boutique , and an entire store where I got a discount. I was in complete heaven.

What's your favorite part of working with Mark.?
I love meeting all these amazing women. I have never had such inspiring and motivating women in my life. So I truly love that part of how many new friendships you make with all the other mark.girls.

What are some of the perks of being a Mark. Rep?
Mark has so many perks , they truly are a company for their Representative. When signing up for mark. you don't have to be in fear of additional charges, hidden fees, or spending x amt of money to get your business going. With mark you only pay $20.00 + tax and never a penny more. You will get a $100 starter kit to get you started ,you get a free e-boutique ready for you to set up immediately after you sign up, mark pays you weekly pending you have shoppers on your boutique , a lifetime discount of 30-35% off everything you buy , 30-35% profit/commissions off any one that makes a purchase from you , 100 free business cards {you just pay shipping $6.95} , there are no quotas to keep up with , no deadlines , and best of all no hidden fees.

Being in sales can be intimidating. How did you over come the initial intimidation?
It absolutely can be intimidating. I honestly didn't even think about my competition at the time when I started. I was so excited that I had found this amazing company , amazing makeup , and at affordable price. I couldn't wait to tell everyone I knew. Mark also makes it so easy for mark reps to sell . We are not limited to just emailing our customers, hanging flyer's, handing out business cards - we get to take full advantage of all the social networking sites. Mark is one of the only companies that allows it's reps to do so. By jumping right in I had booked my first open house party my first week in invited everyone I knew, and I also booked my first vendor show . By week 2 I was #1 seller for our team. When I saw that , it gave me all the confidence in the world and really ran with this and never looked back. I think my only advice if any is never be afraid of the word NO. every no will lead to a YES !!!!!

What made you want to be a Mark. mentor?
I have wanted to become a mentor from the first month I started. I knew I loved this company and I still remembering always bugging my mentor about how can I become a mentor. I am still in the MA (mentor assistant ) program building my team of reps , but hope one day I can make my way up to becoming a full blown mentor. That is truly my #1 goal with mark. The main reason I want to become a mentor is because have found myself just wanting more with this and that truly is the next step !

What is your favorite Mark. item?
My absolute favorite mark. item , that is a hard one. I have 2 that are equally my favorites. I love eye shadow and before finding mark I really never could find any I liked.
I love our touch n glow shimmer palette, and our on the dot metallic eye shadow palette. Both give you so many different options in 1 palette.

Lastly, What's the best advice you can give a new representative?
I try to inspire all my new mark girls coming in. You all have an amazing opportunity to be successful with this business. I always say jump right in , don't wait because the excitement may be gone later. Book a party , Create a facebook fan page, Create a Blog, do a vendor event , online party , the options are there. I think those who jump right in have the greater success. The great thing with mark is you can pick up and leave off at anytime and jump right back in where you left off.
