And she's here to share sum up her sales secrets -- Kelsey. I -- thank you so much for having me absolutely so first tell us a little bit about your business how works how you're making money. Well like -- said we're and direct sales -- its its its market said division of a fine.

So -- in my case I -- I -- in good amount of hours but I also -- different -- other than just being represented and Hamas regional. Manager kind of thing it's -- a mentor in R&R -- in the mark well. And like you say you make a couple thousand dollars a month and I develop extra time to that but I also instill representative to so I get to do that and -- make. Thirty to 35% off -- whenever I sell at any given point. So are right we'll let some let's head into your specific cells advice because you do put a lot of time into you do work with a lot of people to help them to be successful as well. Talk about some of those things in the first you say that it's really important to -- and sharing. And yes -- share is one of our biggest last speech here -- And -- -- wearing it too because the practice so Q we love all the product actually everything and Wednesday -- know you can't really see much of it in the camera but. Everything I'm wearing today as market and I actually love wearing it and it's one of those things that. It's a conversation -- so you walk around in the Molly block -- and the pressure -- and your everyday life in your compliments on it so. It's an easy it's an easy way to -- that that peer to peer selling that women actually do anyway so it's it's actually. A very easy thing to -- incorporated to your lifestyle that -- share concept.

That you can constantly interact with your customers and give them that -- on one one I want service. And then also -- is an excellent way to promote an -- way to market. Like I said the -- appear marketing -- -- in the word of mouth is like one of the most successful and lucrative ways that we that we market ourselves as mark -- so. I -- I've done things that where I posted photos. For thirty days I caught it thirty days with market -- is a summer with mark and I posted a summer staple every single day. And I updated from my Blackberry on on -- -- have to be sitting at a computer every single day. And -- updated. Every day with -- with a new product taught it's what everybody why I liked it while how I used and why it's essential for summer and actually got attorney customers and over hundreds of dollars in sales just from. Just from posting photos of me wearing products and he's about eating that women are in actually do they come home from them -- -- -- -- gift bag that I got and and it's this it's something that is part of our. A part of our regular conversation -- -- lives. And it isn't part of your conversation -- celebrities and used a used celebrities because they can -- -- really great sales to house. Yes completely celebrities completely legitimize our business and if someone is wearing something on the red carpet you know everyone is tweeting -- -- his -- -- -- -- that everybody is. As talking about that particular celebrity in -- -- company does an excellent job with getting us that information. Even if they're not wearing those. Mark products we we actually just pretend you know -- like we'll -- get the look of selling cell and you know -- might be like a more expensive workers from more prestigious brand of make up but -- say get the look from Macedonia for a fraction of the price. And it's really fun to -- get creative with that -- but it definitely legitimizes our business went. When so and -- loves. You know this particular -- product absolutely and I think any business can relate to that thing I never for you -- deal is really important tell you we're using YouTube.
