New Director Mix And Match

  • ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

    When can I sign up for the service?

    • At any time.

    When will I receive the report on who opened and viewed the video?

    • You will receive a link to your reports within 24 hours after the notifications are mailed
    • You can review your reports from that link to monitor who opened the email and what they viewed.

    Can I skip a month and not use the service?

    • No, the service is monthly.... however, you can skip a mailing once every 12 months and remain active.
    • If you find you would like to cancel, just let us know before the 25th (which is when you card is charged for the next month).
    • Then, if you would like to sign up again...since the set-up fee is low...you can get started again right away!
    • IMPORTANT: If you fail to contact us before 9:30 p.m. CST on the 24th of the month that you want to cancel, you cannot receive a refund. Since your credit card will be billed automatically on the 25th of each month, we must receive your cancellation email the day before by our COB (9:30 p.m. CST).

    Is there a minimum period that I have to use for the service?

    • No. The service is month to month. Just cancel before the 24th (see info above)

    Do you give a bonus for referring other Directors to the V-Notify service?

    • Absolutely. To be eligible, you must be a Director currently using the V-Notify Service.
    • The director you refer cannot already be a customer of any Besteder Newsletter Service.
    • For EACH director you refer, we'll give you a $5 referral credit to your credit card!
    • In addition, you will earn 200 bonus points in the Best Rewards Program.

    Does this also count for the Besteder Bundle?

    • For sure! Any time you use 2 or more services, you get a $10 discount on your unit newsletter.
    • In any month that you do not choose to send any V-Notify cards, you'll not receive the $10 discount on your newsletter.
  • ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

    The Company has an option through your MK login to sort for career status. Within a few days after the reports have cleared, we'll, login to your account, download the Consultant names and emails and send the appropriate email for the service you've chosen (A3, I1, I2, etc.)

    Will the email have my name and email address as the sender?

    When will the emails be sent?

    • Once Mary Kay posts the current Consultant status (this date varies each month)...within 5 day from that date the emails will be sent.
    • You'll be sent an email when your emails have been mailed.

    When will I receive the report on who opened and viewed the video?

    • A few days after the videos are sent, we'll send you a report so you can see who has viewed the videos.
    • We say a few days to give Consultants a chance to get the email and review it.

    Can I alter the content of the videos?

    • No, these videos are produced in a way to keep costs down.
    • However, if you would like the option to have customized videos made with more of your own information included, we'll be glad to discuss that with you. Just contact us.

    How often do video designs change?

    • We try to keep the same video for at least 3 months before we recycle for immediate status changes (A3, I1, I2, I3).
    • The other status (N2 T1, 11 Month and Terminated) won't change as often since a single Consultant will not see those again for at least 6 months if they return to Active status. But those will change also...the frequency just won't be as often as the ones listed under bullet 1.
    • The content of the message will not change, but the video production (look, feel, music, animation, etc.) will.

    Do I have to send the same V-Notify emails each month?

    • No. You control which V-Notify emails are sent each month.
    • For instance, this month you want A3, I3 and T1 sent. However, next month, based upon Consultant activity, you see there's no need for a T1 and would like to switch to N2 because there's a number of new Consultants who have not yet ordered and that eCard would be more beneficial.
    • The deadline to make that change is the 1st of the month.

    Do I have to send the same NUMBER of V-Notify emails each month?

    • No. But you do have a deadline in which to make the change. Your card is charged on the 25 of each month for the next month's mailings. If you are going to REDUCE the number of emails, thus decreasing your cost, you must let us know by 9:30 p.m. CST on the 24th of the month.
    • IMPORTANT: If you fail to contact us before 9:30 p.m. CST on the 24th of the month that you want to cancel, you cannot receive a refund. Since your credit card will be billed automatically on the 25th of each month, we must receive your cancellation email the day before by our COB (9:30 p.m. CST).

    How do I let you know which V-Notify emails I want sent each month?

    • When you first sign up...after you've paid for the service, you'll be sent an email with info on how to choose the V-Notify email types initially.
    • Then each month, if those are the same notificiations you want sent...you do nothing
    • If you want to change any of the notification, you must email before the 1st of the month.

    I have the T1 notification, but don't have anyone in that category. Can you substitute for another category for this month instead?

    • Yes. We'll look over your list and send one of the other notification that you're not currently sending.

    I missed the deadline and needed the N2 card sent this month instead of the T1. Can I have that additional email sent for this month?

    • Yes. Just send a request, by email, and we'll charge your card $5 and send the additional email.

    I missed the deadline to REDUCE the NUMBER of emails and didn't notify you by 9:30 p.m. CST on the 24th. Can I get a refund?

    • No. Since your credit card has been processed, you'll not be able to get a refund. We'll go ahead and send out the cards as normal, and then for the next month, your price will be adjusted for the reduced number.

    I missed the deadline to STOP my service and didn't notify you by 9:30 p.m. CST on the 24th. Can I get a refund?

    • No. Since your credit card has been processed, you'll not be able to get a refund. We'll go ahead and send out the cards as normal, but will cancel the service going forward.

    Do you give a discount for referring other Directors to your service?

    • To earn the credit . . .the person named as the referral must be a current customer using any of our services.
    • If you are already a customer of a one of our services, and are signing up for this service, no referral credit can be given as you'll already be aware of all the service we offer.
    • You must not be a return customer of the any service (newsletter, Virtual, etc.). Meaning you previously used the service, are are now returning for that service or another we currently have.

    How will I know when a director I have referred uses the services?

    • First, make sure she indicates on the sign up form that you referred her.
    • Then, you will see a credit on your credit card statement for $5 for the referral. If you'd like to know the director that referral is for, email us!

    But if she doesn't fill that in at the time she signs up, and you find out later that I referred her, will I get credit?

    • No, unfortunately. So make sure she mentions you at sign up!
