I'm always amazed with the number of jewelry accessories that my wife, mother-in-law and daughter have in their possession. If costume jewelry was actually worth any “real money” we would all be rich! Well, I should rephrase that. Clearly there is a huge market for costume jewelry and accessories otherwise we wouldn't see whole stores dedicated to them at your local mall. Although it's probably profitable, I'm pretty sure it's expensive to have a physical store in a mall. But what if I told you, you could get in on the whole jewelry accessory craze right from your home?
Well, apparently you can and I'll cover how in my Paparazzi Jewelry Review. So sit back and relax as you learn how to turn your accessory hoarding ways into some money!
What is Paparazzi Accessories?
“Paparazzi Accessories” is a home based business that allows work at home seekers the ability to sell affordable costume Paparazzi Jewelry and accessories. Consultants are able to promote the products using online parties, home parties, word of mouth or many other ways that are totally up to the consultant. The company was started in 2010. They are headquartered in Hurricane, Utah. If you don't like the idea of having to sell anything to make money, you have other options such as SurveyJunkie.com.
About the Paparazzi Jewelry Accessory Products
The lure of most costume or fashion jewelry accessories is that there are various types, styles and most importantly they're affordable. Well Paparazzi takes it a step further by keeping all “Paparazzi jewelry” and items at $5. I'm very surprised by the variety of the jewelry and accessories and how they can be so affordable without looking cheap. Check out some of the jewelry and accessories yourself.
How Do I Become A Paparazzi Consultant?
Chances are you're reading this Paparazzi Jewelry Review and thinking I can definitely sell these accessories especially if they're only $5. Well, that's exactly why Paparazzi Accessories has a home based business opportunity that anyone can join. You're known as independent consultant or Paparazzi Consultant.
Because this is a business and not a job, there are obviously expenses that come along with starting any business. To sell for Paparazzi Accessories you need to purchase a start up kit. The start up kits are priced at $99, $299 or $499. You're able to choose whatever starter kit works with your budget or needs. All the starter kits come with marketing material such as invitations to invite people to your home parties, sales bags, display hooks, receipts, Paparazzi jewelry repair kits, etc. If you don't like the idea of paying for a home business, you can start one for Free with Wealthy Affiliate. If you want another way to make some extra money, you may want to consider SurveyJunkie.com.
How Much Money Do I Make as A Paparazzi Accessories Consultant?
Paparazzi Independent consultants earn 45% commission every time they sell Paparazzi Jewelry or any of the other Paparazzi Accessories at the retail price. Consultants are able to buy the Paparazzi Jewelry & accessories at wholesale prices and then resell them for $5 or more. Although $5 seems to be the sweet spot. The other way to earn with this home business is recruiting other Paparazzi consultants where you earn 5 to 10% from your downline or team volume.
Paparazzi Accessories, Jewelry Complaints
Not Listed With The BBB
A lot of people swear and die by Better Business Bureau ratings. Most of you know how I feel about that if you've read my BBB Work At Home article here. But if you are one of those that determine a company's legitimacy by that BBB letter grade, you'll be disappointed with the fact that Paparazzi Accessories currently have none. This could be a good and a bad thing because it means there hasn't been any formal complaints filed against this company at the time of this review. However, if you feel more comfortable working with companies that have a positive BBB rating, you may want to look into Wealthy Affiliate and SurveyJunkie.com.
Hosting Parties (Optional Now!)
A lot of reps seem to sell the products using home parties. That part of the business would personally turn me off because I'm a hermit and barely enjoy having my family over let alone other people. LOL However, recently the company provided consultants with their own website. This allows reps to avoid the home parties and focus on doing online promotions which is right up my alley. They also do Facebook parties which are totally online as well. So although many people use home parties you're not forced to do this to be successful. But getting traffic to your site is important and fortunately Google can send tons of it to you for FREE with the proper training.
The company seems to suggest selling the product at about $5. However, you could sell it for more. But $5 seems to be the sweet spot as people will buy multiple items in a sitting as my mom did when she learned the price. LOL. That said, you're probably going to need to sell a lot to make some life changing money or will have to supplement some of your own sales by recruiting others under you to make some real money. But making “Real money” is subjective because everyone has different costs of living and income needs. However, given my experience, it seems like selling in volume won't be an issue with that price range and the quality of the products.
So Is Paparazzi Jewelry Accessories Legitimate?
Yes, it is! As you read above, I don't really see a lot of cons with the Paparazzi Accessories Work At Home Opportunity. Although you don't neccessarily have to join it to make money with selling jewelry. Wealthy Affiliate can teach you how to do it without Paparazzi or help you get FREE leads for your existing Paparazzi business.
My mother-in-law makes jewelry accessories all the time and she's definitely made some money. People are always asking her and my wife where they buy their jewelry and once they find out she's made it, they want to pay her to make them some as well. So I know it's a business that can be successful and easy to get into.
But you have to treat it as a real business and work hard on it. Unfortunately, my mother-in-law is more of the creative type and is less interested in making the money. I always wished I had her skill because I'm the business type.
But now I can get into this business without having to make the jewelry because I've decided to become a Paparazzi Consultant as well.
Update: Within a week of joining Paparazzi Accessories, I made my first sale of $40 purely by accident. I was excited about this new venture and just wanted to show my mother, my starter kit and the products that came with it. But she immediately wanted to buy multiple pieces when she learned the price and tried on the jewelry. Now obviously I can't make a living selling to my mom. But it proved that the product does really sell themselves without any high pressure tactics which I love. Oh yeah, Later in the week I also signed up my first consultant as well! Great start!
