KOKOON Stylist Details

Becoming a KOKOON Stylist is the ideal flexible fashion opportunity you've been searching for!

Stylists purchase their sample selection to create a boutique shopping experience and to pursue maximum income potential, earning 30% to 35% commission on retail sales and earning more if they choose to build a team.

The initial investment for a new Stylist is $1800. They receive supplies to start their business and a $3600 Retail Value credit toward their sample purchase. This generally equals about 35 to 45 samples, depending on the assortment chosen. Additional samples may be purchased a la carte. This is the best option for someone who is interested in building a consistent independent business.

KOKOON trunk shows (exclusively KOKOON, with about 7 to 12 shoppers) average about $1600 in the spring, and $1900 in the fall. Other types of shows (like online or Facebook shows, mini shows, shows with another product line, public shows) generally average less, but are still great for building sales and relationships. Our stylists typically earn $40 to $120 per hour.

Additionally, if a Stylist sells 70% of their samples at a 10 to 30% discount, they earn approximately $1800 to $2300.

How can I earn bonuses and overrides?
Stylists are never required to recruit, but if you know someone who would be a great addition to KOKOON, then share what you love!
KOKOON is not a Multi-Level Marketing company. We offer a one-tier ‘thank you’ program for recruiting and mentoring new Stylists and Associates. New Stylists (and Associates) you personally refer or recruit become part of your team and you earn overrides on your team member’s sales, along with bonuses on your own sales. Minimum personal sales needed to qualify, please see chart below.

What is the difference between Associates and Stylists on my team?
You may build a network of Associate Stylists in your area who you mentor and you allow to borrow your samples when you're not using them. You may have many Associates in your area, as the Associate position is for women interested in very part-time and social media selling. You all become a supportive network for each other, and having Associates allows you to maximize your investment in your sample set ~ your sample set can be earning for you on the days you aren't working) You earn a much higher override commission on your Associates (they earn 20% and you earn 10% on their sales). 
Stylists on your team invest in their own sample set and do not require scheduling for you. Your Stylists will become important colleagues and you will benefit from their innovation and creativity as much as they do from you! You earn 3% to 5% override on your Stylists' sales.

FAQ’s ~

Can anyone become a KOKOON Stylist?
Working together is only fun and beneficial if it’s a good match for both parties, so we have an application and interview process.

Is KOKOON right for me?
KOKOON should feel like YOU.
Most importantly, do our style and price point feel right for you and the women you know in your social network? The most successful way to sell KOKOON is to wear it every day. If KOKOON isn’t your style, or if it’s out of your price point comfort zone...well, you’ve answered your own question.

Do I need a sales background?
For us, selling isn’t ‘selling’, it’s sharing what you love & helping other women make choices that flatter & solve their wardrobe & lifestyle needs. Our most successful salespeople are the ones who wear & love KOKOON & are ambassadors for the brand.
That being said, no one is successful in a vacuum. You should feel comfortable networking, sharing KOKOON’s story, and pursuing opportunities to show KOKOON.

What qualities do you look for in a Candidate?
Do you want to work with people who are positive, fun, and supportive? So do we!
Being involved in your community, being social (in real life and on social media), stylish, and having a natural talent for wardrobing and loving the feeling of helping women feel confident and beautiful...those are the building blocks of a successful KOKOON business.  
Having an entrepreneurial spirit, marketing skills, and making people feel special and happy...those are wonderful qualities that lend themselves to success in any business.
If this sounds like you, then you would probably have a lot of fun building your own KOKOON Styling business!

 

Are you required to recruit and is this a multi-level or pyramid type of company?
No, No, and No. We have a 1-tier ‘thank you’ reward system in place for Stylists who refer and mentor successful matches. Most of our Stylists aren’t interested in recruiting, they just want to be rewarded for their own hard work.

Are there territories?
Women shop with who they know, so we don’t have territories.

Are there required Sales Meetings?
KOKOON hosts an annual sales meeting and recognition each January and a Fall Preview Party each July in Minneapolis. Attendance is optional but encouraged.
KOKOON offers sales incentives to offset travel expenses to the January meeting.
