Now that you have joined paparazzi Accessories,
You probably have a TON of questions. This website is a one stop shop for all your business inquires.
I'm Paparazzi Consultant....Now What?
You did it! Now the fun begins. Below is a basic outline on how you can achieve Success!
STEP #1 – ORDER JEWELRY
Of course you will want to order inventory to start your new business. You will need it to make money- Right? So how do you do this? Log into www.paparazziaccessories.com. This is known as ‘Your Back Office’. Find the ‘my orders’ tab. Scroll down to ‘new orders’ .
Now that you are in, you can order all the jewelry you want! If a piece is labeled “Blockbuster”, that means that these arePaparazzi’s best selling pieces. Be sure to purchase a vast array of styles and products to cater to your potential customers. Shipping is a flat $5.95 for orders under $100. If your order is $100 plus, shipping is FREE!!
I would recommend the $299 kit to anyone who asks. It is VERY hard to start your business with little inventory. Our kits offer a new consultant almost everything needed to start a successful business. Furthermore, Paparazzi accessories selects the best selling pieces to include in all starter kits.
Step #2 , Display
Now that you are in business, you will need to display your jewelry. You do NOT have to spend a ton of money and time on your displays. You can buy display hooks from Paparazzi accessories when you order. Hobby Lobby or Walmart carry velvet busts for around $6. Keep it simple!
Pegboard and garment racks- The is an easy and portable display! Buy your pegboard at any home improvement store, spray paint it black and use zip ties to secure the board (4×6) to the garment rack. Hooks (locking J hooks ) can be found on Amazon.
Folding screen from walmart.com- Excellent way to display jewelry
Display using milk jugs- $2.99 from the Christmas Tree Store. Note the canvas display with key hooks at the bottom of this picture. This is a beautiful, light-weight method of displaying jewelry.
Canvas display- One of my consultants found a canvas picture at a thrift store for a few dollars. She sprayed it black, added hooks and the result is a GORGEOUS, light-weight display.
Display using tie hangers
One of my favorites-I found a tree similar to this at Goodwill for $7. Every time I display my jewelry on the tree, it is bare by the end of the party.
Beautiful displays canbe made from a fireplace screen found at a thrift shop.
Hippy head band holder! One of my consultants took a paint can, sprayed it black. The result- a BEAUTIFUL display!
When in doubt, use baskets to display and organize your jewelry. People LOVE the thought of ‘hunting’ for a great piece of jewelry!
Step #3- Plan Your Launch Party-
Now that you know how to order and you have your displays made, you will want to launch your business. Start by writing a list of names of 100 people you know. Personally call and send them an invitation to your open house. Let them know that this is informal and there will not be any presentations to sit through.
Just come, visit, shop, eat and have FUN! Order a lawn sign from Paparazzi and display it on your front lawn. Tell EVERYBODY in your neighborhood about your party. Put signs on their doors! Send reminders on Facebook! Be creative!
The day of your open house, you will want to be sure you have enough change to start. I usually keep about $50 in 1’s, 5’s, $10’s, and $20’s in my cash box at all times.
Be sure to talk your about your business. Your goal is to book 2-3 parties off your open house. I put signs on my table in an 8×10 picture frame- “Book an open house and receive free jewelry”. Also, I never pass up an opportunity to recruit new team members.
I also display a help wanted sign on my table. “Help Wanted- Ask how to become a Paparazzi Accessories consultant today!” chances are you will be so busy that you will not be able to talk much about parties and joining Paparazzi. That is why the signs are a MUST.
Step 4- Make a Facebook Business Page and Update DAILY
Social media is essential in growing your business. The link below gives detailed instructions on how to make a Facebook page:
Here is a link to my Facebook page so you can get an idea of what it should entail :
Your goal is to get people to like your page. To do this, you will need to share your page link anyplace you can. Facebook yard sale sites and your own friends are a great place to start.
Now that you have read through all the steps, you are ready to make a lot of money fast! Now you need to keep your business forward. How do you accomplish this?
4. Business cards- I’ve found vistaprint to be the cheapest. You can find compliant logos and pictures to upload onto your business card in your back office under ‘resources’.
How Do I Re order ?
When you bought the starter kit, your inventory was selected for you from Paparazzi accessories. Rest assured that Paparazzi selected their BEST selling items for you to kick start your business.
After all, they WANT you to sell all your items so you will make money and order more! After you sell your entire 100 piece starter kit in the first few events like I did you will want to order more to keep making money.
You should have been emailed a consultant ID and password. You will need to go to www.paparazziaccessories.com and log in.
Go to ‘my orders’ and scroll down to new orders. Here, you can select what you want. Paparazzi accessories picks these as they are hot sellers. Be sure to purchase a vast array of styles and products to cater to your potential customers.
Do I Have to Order Every MONTH?
No- you are free to order as much or as little as you want. However, to be considered an active consultant and to be found in the consultant finder, you will want to order at least 25 adult pieces /month.
You will NOT lose your consultant ID. In addition, if you sign people under you, you will want to be considered ‘active’ to receive an extra commission check from Paparazzi.
How To Succeed WITH Paparazzi
There is an old saying : ‘The more you have, the more you’ll sell”. This is true with Paparazzi as well. Your goal is to build up to 500 pieces in your inventory.
To do this , you will need to invest back into your business for a few weeks or months. However, you do NOT have to invest every penny you have earned. Here is a simple outline :
Sign up with a $299 Starter Kit. This will get you 120 pieces. Take all the money from selling just 25 pieces . With that money, reinvest in your inventory by purchasing 50 new pieces. This will increase your inventory and your selection! Once you see how fast these pieces sell you will realize that this is not a huge investment!
Or you can sell all 120 pieces and reinvest ALL you made and buy 220 pieces! So you just added 120 pieces to your inventory! You are on your way to having awesome parties and awesome sales with your wide selection! You will eventually get to the point where you just have to reinvest when you run low on certain items.
This is just one way to make money with Paparazzi! Another way is to build a team of consultants. As a Paparazzi Accessories consultant you get 45% off everything, so when you resell any item you make 45% or $2.75 per item you sale!
For example: A $500 party which is 100 items at $5 each or 100x $2.25= $225 a party! Plus parties are a great way to recruit new consultants as they see how easy it is to sell and how great the Paparazzi Jewelry are its easy to get them to join your team.

How To Advance In Paparazzi - Climb The Ladder!!
The answer is fairly simple! Plan and carry out at least 6 parties or events/month. This plan is so simple that even a person who works full-time could do it! Paparazzi accessories is unlike another direct sales company where you have to BEG people to have parties for you. Quite the contrary! People will come to YOU and ask for $5 jewelry parties . You just need to get your name out there!
Update you Facebook page daily, go live and sell! Post pictures of your jewelry. Chronicle your parties and events. Here is my Facebook page :
Make Director in 30 Days!
Follow this step ONLY if you want to make extra money!!
If you want to make REALLY good money with Paparazzi accessories, you are going to want to build a team and climb in rank. The first step is to reach Director.
I made director in 19 days from starting Paparazzi Accessories. Does this mean I am special? No. It means I knew how to play the game! Sponsoring is easy once you know how. We have special Facebook groups for this, and if you are on our team, you will already have access to them.
To make Director, you simply have to sponsor /sign 3 people under you. Each has to have at least a 25 piece (50 PV) order. You will then teach them to do what you are doing. This is simple to do since you have this website, and our Facebook groups. Of course, you will also have me to help you establish new team mates!
You do not have to make Director rank, but if you want another steam of income in addition to your retails sales you will want to make Director in 30 days!
I want all my consultants make director in 30 days or less! Here are a few strategies to help you accomplish this:
1. Plan 2 launch Open Houses- Have one on a weekend at home, and one in a bar/ restaurant during the week. This will give people 2 chances to see your jewelry. Book 2 parties from the above open houses– that should be easy- especially at the restaurant open house. In addition, make a list of 100 people you know- teachers, nurses, bus drivers, friends , family etc. and book at least 4 parties.
3. Establish weekly live sales on your business page. Your goal is to funnel these customers into your VIP Facebook group where you will post albums of your current inventory. Aim for at least 2 live sales each week!
3. Call 15 nursing homes using the script on our FAB 5 FB group. This is KEY You will book 3-5 parties from each nursing home. Furthermore, Nursing homes are great for meeting new people. I’ve met so many new customers just by setting up in the lobby and greeting family members as they walked in. Nurses and staff are also great potential customers and consultants.
There you have it- it’s as easy as 1, 2, 3!!
How Do I Book More Parties?
Give away FREE jewelry- make an 8×10 sign, secure in a picture frame and display next to your cash box. Example:
Book a Party Today and
Earn FREE Jewelry Today!
Who doesn’t LOVE free jewelry? Yes, I give it to them that night/day, but I will take the risk of having them back out. Beside- the odds are they will have their party and I will make hundreds from my one little $5 giveaway!
Don’t let them scare you.
Because you are considered a business, you will be responsible for your own taxes. There are 2 levels of tax. It is really VERY simple.
1. Sales tax- Paparazzi Accessories collects the sales tax for you ON THE FULL $5 when you order each piece. They then submit this to your state in your name for you. It is up to you as to if you would like to recoup your costs. I sell my items for $5 plus tax. Some consultants sell for an even $5.50. It is up to you.
2. Income tax–
save EVERY receipt you have. You can write off just about everything business related. Save all your invoices. I write down everything in my calendar by the day. For example- if I drive 2 miles to ship a package, I make the millage on my calendar. If I mail a free piece of jewelry, I write that piece as well as the postage and millage off on my taxes.
My advice: Obtain a CPA or tax professional !
What do all these terms mean???
You may be a little confused as to what each abbreviation and ‘Paparazzi speak’ mean . Here is a cheat sheet for you.
PV- this means ‘personal volume’ each piece of ADULT jewelry counts as 2 PV. So if you order 100 pieces= 200PV
‘Back office’- this is what we call the area where land after we log in with our consultant ID and password. Nobody has access to this area without an ID or password. Here, you can place orders, and check your volume and downline. Go ahead and experiment!
Volume- how much PV you and your team has occurred in a 30 day period
Adult pieces- anything not labeled “Starlet Shimmer”- these are our kids items and they DO NOT count toward volume, but are excellent sellers.
Do I Have A Website?
Yes- every consultant has a generic website which they can utilize for recruiting or jewelry viewing purposes. For example, my Paparazzi Accessories website is : www.paparazziaccessories.com/16095
You would add your consultant number at the end. You can personalize it by logging in and clicking on “profile”. Be sure to add your picture (edit profile) and write your story to give your website that personal touch.
You can direct your customers here to order!
