There has never been a better time to join my Close To My Heart team. We have an awesome rewards program just for our new Consultants called Straight To The Top (STTT). As you achieve each milestone in the STTT program, you will not only earn money from your sales, but you will also earn fun, exclusive rewards that will help you continue marketing your Close To My Heart business and sharing your passion for crafting. I’m here to help you in every step of your journey. Join my Team today, and watch the perks pile up!

1. What is the Straight To The Top (STTT) program? The Straight To The Top program is an incentive program designed to help new Consultants hit the ground running. Research shows that new Consultants are more likely to have long-­­term sales success when they enjoy immediate sales success. This program helps Consultants to achieve success early by offering rewards for reaching certain sales milestones. 

2. How does the STTT program work, and what can I earn? Consultants and their Uplines can receive special incentive rewards based on their personal sales totals during their first 90 days as a Consultant. If new Consultants reach certain amounts of commissionable sales within the specified time frame, they and their Upline both earn a reward.

3. Is there a video that explains how the Straight To The Top program works? Yes! Watch the STTT videos, for new Consultants and for Uplines, by going to Online Office > Training & Events > TrainingVideos. EARNING REWARDS

4. Where can I view my deadline dates? Consultants can view their deadline dates at Online Office > Business Management > Reports > Personal STTT.

5. Is the deadline at midnight, or do I have the entire deadline day to submit orders? Time frames end at 11:59 pm (MT) the day of the deadline. For example, if a Consultant had until August 1 to meet a deadline, she would have until 11:59 pm (MT) on August 1 to submit orders to fulfill her level's requirement.

6. What if I make sales before my STTT start date? Will they still count toward my sales requirements? All sales submitted before the deadlines will count for STTT, even if they are submitted before the official start date. 

7. If I meet the sales requirements early for Level 1, can any additional sales I make before day 30 count toward my Level 2 sales requirements? Absolutely! Consultants can certainly reach levels early. Consultants could even reach all three levels before day 30 and earn all of the rewards, including the bonus rewards. To determine if a Consultant has met her sales requirements for a specific level, we will look at her sales totals from the start date, not the last day of the previous level

8. Can I still earn rewards if I don’t achieve Level 1 but achieve Level 2 or 3? Even if Consultants do not make the sales requirements for a particular level, they can still earn the reward for the subsequent level so long as they meet the subsequent level’s deadline and sales requirements. To determine if a Consultant has met her sales requirements for a specific level, we will look at her sales totals from the start date, not from the last day of the previous level. However, only Consultants who meet the deadlines and sales requirements for all three levels will be eligible for the Bonus reward.

9. Can I purchase the three exclusive My Acrylix® Business Builder stamp sets, the Close To My Heart Logo T-Shirt, On The Go Bag, or the heart dangle? No. These items are only available to new Consultants who meet the sales requirements specified in the STTT program. CLAIMING REWARDS 

10. How will I get my reward once I earn it? Once Consultants have earned a reward, they will be able to add the reward to an order. When the new Consultant begins an order in their name, they will receive a prompt to add the item they have earned to the order. Rewards can be added to the following order types: OBA, Individual, Gathering, and EZ Inviteorders. 

11. How soon will I get the prompt to add the items to my order? After Consultants have submitted their qualifying order, they will be prompted to add their reward on the following order. The Straight To The Top prompts will only reflect numbers based on completed orders, not pending orders. 

12. Do I have to order my reward within a certain timeframe? Yes. If the reward is not ordered within a six-month period, it will stop appearing and can no longer be added to an order through Order Entry or the OBA. Consultants should contact Close To My Heart Consultant Services if they would like to claim the reward after the six-month time frame. 

13. Will I have to pay shipping/handling and tax for my rewards? If the reward is shipping with other items, Consultants will not have to pay shipping/handling and tax for the rewards they have earned. They will need to pay shipping/handling and tax for other items in that order. If the reward is ordered alone, shipping/handling will be charged. 

14. What if my reward item is on backorder? Consultants will still be prompted to add the reward to their order if ordering through Order Entry, and the item will be sent at a later date, as soon as it is back in stock. If Consultants are ordering through the OBA and the reward is on backorder, they will not receive a prompt to add it to their cart. PRODUCT INFORMATION 

15. Where can I see what the STTT rewards look like? Images of rewards are found on the STTT flyer. The rewards are also featured in the videos on the STTT program. 

16. What is the retail value of the three exclusive My Acrylix® Business Builder stamp sets? The retail value of the three stamp sets is $29.85 USD/$35.25 CAD. These are B--­size stamp sets.

17. What are the measurements for the exclusive On The Go bag? 7.5" x 8" 18. What is the purpose of the exclusive On The Go bag? We’ve designed this bag for easy transport and easy advertising. The bag is large enough to fit several cards and products or other small, simple projects. Consultants can take their On The Go bag with them to their children’s events like ball games and dance practice to work on projects, which will be a great conversation starter and advertising tool. When someone asks the Consultant about the project, she can explain how to make a quick card and give the card away along with a business card. The Consultant can also ask her new potential customer if they can become friends on Facebook so she can share more artwork.

19. What is the retail value of the exclusive On The Go bag with the heart dangle? The retail value of the On The Go bag with the heart dangle is $35.95 USD/$40.95 CAD.

20. What is the retail value of the exclusive heart dangle? The retail value of the heart dangle is $11.95 USD/$14.95CAD.

21. What is the retail value of the exclusive Close To My Heart Logo T--‐shirt? The retail value of the Straight To The Top is $40.95 USD/$45.95 CAD for sizes XS--­XL, $41.95 USD/$46.95 CAD for size 2XL, and $43.95 USD/$48.95 CAD for sizes 3XL--­4XL.

22. Which sizes do the exclusive Close To My Heart Logo T‐shirts come in? This shirt is offered in sizes XS to 4XL. To measure, smooth out wrinkles and lay garment flat on a table. 

23. Are you required to maintain an inventory?
Nope. There are so many different products that CTMH actually suggests that you do not maintain an inventory. You can place an order for 1 item or 1000 items, so there is really no need to keep an inventory.

24. Does the company offer Hostess gifts? If so, who pays for them?
Yes! CTMH pays for the hostess rewards. And as a Consultant, you are welcome to be your own Hostess and earn more free goodies!

25. Does CTMH offer any training or events?
YES! There are so many different training options available including lots of great videos. There is an entire listening library of recorded conference calls, bulletin boards for artwork, business, templates, Studio J, Swaps, Mentoring, and more. They have pre-designed projects and workshops for us to use. There are annual events such as Local “Rediscover” Events, annual Crop Weekends, and Convention. There is even an 800# that you can call if you have questions. And a ton more! You will never be without help. 

26. How much is it to have a website?
All Consultants now have FREE websites, so your friends and customers can place orders online, 24 hours a day!

27. Can Consultants send out newsletters?
You bet! CTMH also provides all Consultants with free, professionally designed monthly newsletters, making it easier than ever to communicate with your customers.

28. How do you sign up?
You can sign up at my website here. It will take you less than 5 minutes and your New Consultant Kit will be sent out to you right away.

29. How long will it take to receive my kit?
They have been shipping them out very quickly. They typically ship in 1-2 days of receiving your online application. You will receive a Fed Ex tracking number so that you can track your package and know exactly when it will arrive.

30. Can I contact you if I have questions after I sign up?
Of course. I am available to my team via phone, email, and Facebook. I am more than happy to help you get started building a business, or just encourage you if you would simply like to be a Personal Use Consultant.

Whatever your reason for signing up, there really is no risk! You have nothing to lose!
