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

How much does the New Consultant Kit cost?

The New Consultant kit costs just $70, with shipping included and has an approximate retail value of $171! This kit includes all the essential business tools you need to get started, PLUS $50 in FREE CTMH Cash so you can choose your own creative products. It’s a great value on the tools you need, with free credit toward the fun products you want!

What comes in the New Consultant Kit? 

The New Consultant Kit includes the essential supplies you’ll need to get your business off to a running start, plus $50 in CTMH Cash that you can use to get your choice of select creative items.

What is the discount?

Consultants receive a minimum base commission of 22%, which can increase up to 35%, depending on monthly sales totals. Consultants can also earn up to $75 in FREE CTMH Cash every single month, which really adds up! When you decide to build a Team, your earning potential is even greater!

Is there an opportunity for new Consultants to earn free products?

Yes! You are immediately eligible for the Straight To The Top Program, with the chance to earn exclusive products in your first 90 days. There are three levels in the program, with rewards given at each level based on your personal sales. There is also a bonus for hitting all three levels with nearly $150 value in free products!

As a Consultant, can I have a party and be my own hostess?

Absolutely! Close To My Heart has a very generous Hostess Rewards program for hostesses, and you are welcome to be your own hostess and earn even more free products! How awesome is that?!

What are the sales requirements for Consultants?

To remain an active Consultant you must submit $300 in sales per calendar quarter. You are not required to meet the sales requirements during your first quarter; this is considered a grace period to allow you additional time to get your business up and running. The first quarter you would be required to meet the minimum sales requirements is the next quarter after you sign up.

What is a calendar quarter?

Our calendar quarters are a period of three consecutive months, beginning in January. There are four quarters per year, as follows:
Quarter 1: January – March
Quarter 2: April – June
Quarter 3: July – September
Quarter 4: October – December

Do I have to build a business?

You have the opportunity to build any size of business you choose, but you don’t have to. Many Consultants buy the products at a discount for their personal use. You are welcome to simply enjoy the discount, or choose to earn income by selling to friends and family. It’s completely up to you!

Am I required to keep an inventory of products?

No. We recommend ordering products as you and your customers need them, rather than investing lots of money up front. This means you can begin a home-based business for very little start-up cost! It’s one of the most affordable business models in the world.

What training is available for new Consultants?

Close To My Heart offers all the training you will need! They have business videos, product videos, training courses, Start With Heart newsletters with step-by-step instructions for new Consultants, a Listening Library of recorded conference calls from industry experts, Consultant bulletin boards for artwork ideas, and more. They also offer pre-designed projects and workshops you can use to create beautiful layouts and cards. You can contact me with any questions as well! With my help, the Home Office resources, our Team’s resources, and our incredible community of Consultants, you will never be without help.

Does Close To My Heart offer events?

Absolutely! They host a fabulous annual Convention which is full of product reveals, artwork inspiration and business training. They also offer an assortment of local events, leadership meetings, Album Retreats, and more. In addition to these incredible events, you also have the opportunity to earn our awesome annual incentive trip for you and a guest—free!

How much does it cost to have a website?

Every Consultant is given a personal website free of charge! This is a professionally designed and maintained e-commerce site that is a terrific benefit of being a Consultant with Close To My Heart. Your friends and customers can place orders through your website 24 hours a day, and their orders will be shipped directly to their home. And the best news is that you earn commission on these orders. It’s that easy!

Can I accept credit card payments for orders from customers? What fees will I incur?

On orders placed through your free Consultant website, customers can use Visa, MasterCard, or Discover to pay for their orders. There is no charge for you to accept these payment forms. Additionally, you can accept these same credit cards as payment for orders you enter through our normal Order Entry system. Again, there is absolutely no charge for you to do so!

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.

Which credit cards do you accept as payment for my enrollment?

Close To My Heart accepts Visa, MasterCard and Discover. They have a secure, encrypted website to keep your private data safe.

How long will it take to receive my kit?

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.

Can I contact you if I have questions after I sign up?

Of course. I am available to my team via phone, email, or 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!
