Watch this short video from my National Team Leader, Leslie, giving you the inside scoop about what it takes to be successful in this business!
There’s never been a better time to join the Music City Mannequins of Matilda Jane Clothing!
Q: How much does it cost to get started?
A: All it takes is $300 to get your business up and running. Then I will work along side you to set goals so that the remainder of your no interest trunk payment is covered through your paycheck.
We are offering a “Starter Trunk” option with hand selected ladies and baby’s pieces, a sprinkling of boys and the complete girls collection for $1500. This covers clothes for ALL releases (February-June), the rack, and hangers. Upon signing your contract, a welcome kit will be shipped asap that includes 3 pieces of MJ for you to start showing friends! You have the option to customize your trunk and add our tween collection, the accessories, and the expanded ladies, and baby collection for additional cost.
Q: How much can I make selling Matilda Jane?
A: Well that is truly up to you! You will earn 20% on anything you sell in a given month and when you hit $2500, this is your bonus level earning you an extra 5%. So, by hitting $2500 each month, you maximize your commission.
In addition, as a new trunk keeper you are eligible for Jump Start bonuses your 1st 3 months as a trunk keeper (more on that next)
Q: Are their other ways to earn income?
When you start, you have a 3-month JumpStart period where you have the chance to earn bonus cash! Remember that $2500 level…well hit that in month 1 of JumpStart and we will give you a $200 BONUS! In month 2, hit $2500 and earn $200 and in month 3 hit $2500 and earn another $200 cash! This is structured so that you can earn bonuses on top of your commission so that you can quickly pay off your investment and start making money.) Let me give you an example of what earning JumpStart Cash on top of your commission looks like!
Month 1: Sell $2500 X 25% commission =$625.00
Sell $2500 in month 1 $200.00 Cash bonus!
*Payday is the 5th of every month *Payments always due the 10th
You can also liquidate your samples at the end of the season (MJ will give you a date this sale can begin). Marking your samples down to 50% off will allow you to re-coup your investment PLUS make money. When you do this successfully, you are able to re-invest this money into your next season’s trunk.
Sharing the MJ opportunity with others
It isn’t mandatory that you build a team at Matilda Jane but we do know that it is more fun when you invite a friend or two to join you! We also find that the productivity of trunk keepers goes up as you work together to grow the brand, brainstorm best business practices, AND cheer each other on of course! And when you start to build a team, the opportunities are unlimited. See our entire career path to see the big picture! You do earn commission off of your team so this is yet another way to earn income with MJ. With approx. 1800 Trunk Keepers nationwide, we are just getting started! Now is a great time to not only join but toGROW WITH US!
Q: How many releases are there each season??
A: Our Spring/Summer season offers 5 releases (February-June). We typically have an amazing promo each month and you will get this in your trunk as well. We typically have little surprise additions to the collection each month (example home items) and you will have the opportunity to add those to your rack at a discount if you choose. As a reminder, your investment covers clothing for your 1st month (the month of your official start date) plus all remaining releases for the season).
Q: How can I be the most successful as a Trunk Keeper?
A: You will be most successful by staying focused on booking trunk shows. In-home shows are the foundation of our business but in today’s busy world, we also have to accommodate customers who prefer to shop online or host online shows. Most TK’s find a balance of working their business various ways from in-home shows, online shows, drop and shop appointments, and personal shopping appointments. The key is that you strive to build relationships and provide great customer service. Every TK’s business looks different and that is the beauty of it. You can work this business while not missing out on important family obligations.
Q: Sign me up! What is the next step?
A: If you would like to move forward? Let’s connect on a quick call so that I can make sure I have answered all of your questions. Our next step is to have you fill out our application which I will send you once we chat. Filling out an application doesn’t bind you contractually, it just allows us to confirm your area is open for adding additional TK’s and asks you to list who is going to support your business by hosting your first few shows! This also helps give you confidence that you already have a support system as you start this exciting adventure! Do not hesitate to give them a call and ask them to personally host!
TIP: Think outside of the box when listing your Janes on your application. It’s natural to think of people who currently buy but these ladies most likely already have a TK. We are always looking to grow the MJ brand in new circles so when we enroll in TKs, we want to make sure we are focused on growth and not trading business. Remember EVERY lady you know is a potential MJ customer!
