Join My Team

Becoming a Close to my Heart Consultant was one of the best decisions I ever made! I would love for you to join my team, but before you do, I am sure you have lots of questions. Below you will find some of the most frequently asked questions about signing up with Close to my Heart.

If you’d like to know why you should sign up to become a CTMH Consultant, hopefully these frequently asked questions will help.

  1. How much does the New Consultant Kit cost?
    The New Consultant Kit is $75 (plus tax and shipping) and is valued at over $200, plus you get a $50 Select Product Credit to apply towards your first order.
  2. What comes in the New Consultant Kit?
    You get a ton of great products and business items in the kit to help you get started right away. You can see exactly what is in the kit below. 
  3. Is there an opportunity for new Consultants to earn free products?
    Absolutely! With the “Straight to the Top” program and a little extra incentive from me, you can earn tons of free products! There are three levels of the Straight to the Top program and you earn free goodies at each level. If you reach all three levels (a total of $1,200 in orders in your first 90 days), you will get (3) exclusive business builder stamp sets, a cute “On the Go” Bag, a heart dangle, a CTMH t-shirt, and a CTMH organizer filled with $150 in goodies... and a free WOTG Kit as a special gift from me. Plus, you will have earned a minimum of $260 in commission and a minimum of $75 in Select Product Credit which can be used to get more CTMH goodies. (See photo below for more info.)
  4. What’s the catch?
    Other than getting a ton of wonderful products at a great deal and most likely getting addicted to them, there is no catch. You have the opportunity to build a business if you choose, but you don’t have to.
  5. What if I don’t want to build a business and I just want to get the discount for myself on future orders?
    That’s great! Many Consultants are Hobbyists or Personal Use Consultants and do not do parties or hold classes or workshops. You are welcome to simply enjoy the discount on your own orders.
  6. What is the discount?
    Active Consultants enjoy a discount of 22%-35% depending on their sales for the month in addition to earning up to $75 in FREE product credit each month. Senior Directors and above also earn an additional 5% - 15% of personal override commission ON TOP of the regular commission and free product credit! Your earning potential is unlimited!
  7. What are the sales requirements?
    The sales requirement is $300 retail (before your discount) per calendar quarter to stay an active Consultant.
  8. What if I don’t place $300 in a quarter or place any orders at all?
    Once you sign up, you have a full quarter to make your sales minimum which means that if you sign up today, you have until the end of June 2016 to enjoy the full discount if you choose. Then if you do not have a total of $300 in orders from April - June, you simply drop and are no longer a Consultant.
  9. How long will I be a Consultant if I order the kit and then do nothing?
    If you sign up today, you will be active until December 31, 2016. Then on January 1st, 2017  you will no longer be considered a Consultant. But with all of the fabulous new products that will be coming out in our new Annual Inspirations Expressions and Holiday Expressions catalogs, you will probably be VERY excited that you are a Consultant and are able to order the new products at a discount. So chances are you will not drop! *smile*
  10. Do I need to give the Kit back if I drop?
    Nope. Everything is yours to keep! No strings attached.
  11. 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 1,000 items, so there is really no need to keep an inventory.
  12. 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!
  13. Does CTMH offer any training or events?
    Ummm....a great big 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
  14. How much is it to have a website?
    All Consultants have FREE websites, so your friends and customers can place orders online, 24 hours a day!
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. Can I contact you if I have questions after I sign up?
    Of course. I am available to my team via phone, email, Facebook, and Twitter. 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! Feel free to contact me if you have any other questions. I’d be more than happy to chat with you. Whether you love creativity, community, business, or all three, you are welcome here!
