Email Validation

Verifying New Accounts

When setting up a new account through your portal you will need to use a valid email address which will receive a confirmation email to activate the account. Your customer must have access to the account in order to confirm their account creation and be able to order from Alison’s Pantry.

Here are some tips to make that easier!

  • Please create new accounts BEFORE your order day so your customers can validate their new account before your orders close. 
  • If your customer does NOT have an email you will need to create their account and have it validated by the office during office hours: M-F 8-5 MDT
  • Be sure to triple check your spelling of the email to guarantee the customer gets the validation email. If you misspell the email and then correct it after it’s created the validation email does not get resent. You would need to try to login to the website with that login and then ask for the validation email to be resent.
  • Check spam or junk for the validation email with the subject “Account Verification”.

Customers Without Emails

If your customer absolutely does not have an email account that they use, please create their account using the @alisonsreps.com email and then notify the office to validate the account for you. Please be sure to allow time for us to validate it during office hours:   M-F  8-5 MT.

Rep Recognition 2019-2022

Former Rep Recognition Program 2019-2022

We’re excited to introduce you to our new Alison’s Pantry Rep Recognition Program. We love celebrating our Reps and seeing you continue to grow, both professionally and personally. When you reach your first $1000 in sales you receive an Alison’s Pantry lanyard to put all your pins on. See below for more pins to earn and other benchmarks to watch for .
Plan to show off your pin collection with pride at our Food Shows! We invite all Reps to wear their lanyards so you can celebrate your success when we gather for events.

Here’s what each pin represents, and how you can continue to build your pin collection:

Longevity: You’ll receive a pin as you reach your first year mark as a Rep and then at 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, and 30-year marks.


Sales: You’ll receive special sales pins as you reach these sales benchmarks: $1,000, $2,000, $3,000, $4,000, $5,000, $7,000, and $10,000 in monthly sales (based on subtotal sales amounts).

Personal Growth Pins:

2021 Increase Your Sales Challenge: This is a challenge for you to earn free bonus gifts from the office. Each of the 4 quarters this coming year, you will have the opportunity to grow your sales by $100 each month. The first month of the quarter will start out as your base, you will then need to increase your sales for the following catalog and then another again for the 3rd catalog of the quarter.

For example, catalog #1, your sales are $1000, Then catalog #2, you sell $1100, and then Catalog #3 sales are $1200, you will qualify for the 1st quarter bonus gift. It will come with your #4 order.

If you meet the challenge for 2 of the 4 quarters, then you will receive the 2021 Increased Sales Pin for your lanyard.

Unique pin for each event!

Selling is Helping: Earned when you host an approved fundraiser.

Receive a $10 credit for referring new customers to your fellow reps. Know someone who would love AP, but they are out of your area? Refer them to a closer rep and get paid for it! Customer needs to place a $50 min order. To get this credit the referring rep needs to send their RSM the new customer ID and name. This could also be an existing customer who hasn’t ordered in 6+ months. Once the customer has placed a minimum $50 order and paid for it, the rep would receive a $10 credit. Only one credit per customer; multiple reps cannot refer the same customer.

 

 

Reps will be credited $1 for submitting a review on the Alison’s Pantry website. If you send in a picture AND review a product we’ll give you a $5 credit. If you submit a 30 second video review we’ll give you a $10 credit. (video must be at least 15 seconds, but not more than 60 seconds and should be filmed vertically with plenty of light and should show the actual product during your review.)

 

Rep will receive a free marketing kit ($60 value) for participating in an approved vendor show or hosting a tasting party. The way it works is you purchase the kit for $50 and once you submit your results we’ll credit the $50 back. No limit on number of events.

 

Samples are a great way to increase sales; we’ll even help you with it! Sample something you’re excited about then document how it went with photos and/or video and post it on the rep FB group to get a $5 credit. This can be done once a catalog.

 

Host a Facebook Live or Instagram Reel with an AP theme and receive a $5 credit. This can be done once per catalog. Please share your live or reel in our rep fb group and tag Lori Harris.

 

The 5% Sales Increase Bonus will be discontinued after September, 2022

Sales reps can earn a bonus commission of 5% on the increase of sales from the same quarter previous year sales. Bonus will be issued as AP credit.

Example: If a rep has sales of $1,000 more than the previous year she would get a bonus of $50 for the quarter. 

*A sales rep will not receive the 5% quarterly increase bonus if they have a below-minimum order in the quarter for the current year or previous year being compared.

2022 Food Show Cancelled

[slide-anything id=”13953″]

January 11th, 2022

Dear AP Reps-

I have a difficult announcement to make. Let me first start off by saying that it honestly feels like sometimes the universe just doesn’t want to align with what we want.

I’m sorry to announce that we are canceling our food show…….again. The reason we’ve decided to cancel it for the 3rd time is because the facility we reserved made a huge mistake and double-booked another event for the same day. They absolutely cannot move the event, so we got bumped. I was on a conference call with them over the weekend and they are incredibly sorry for the scheduling mistake. Between us requesting multiple days and rescheduling it twice they simply got it mixed up and reserved the wrong date. They apologized profusely! I told them that I appreciated their honesty and there was no reason to scream and throw a tantrum (even though I felt like doing exactly that!) The second reason for cancellation is a familiar one: COVID. I don’t know how things are looking in your neck of the woods, but here in Utah we’re to almost 10,000 cases PER DAY! New mask mandates are being issued and we’re not sure how our brokers and vendors will react to news of all time high COVID cases.

After many hours of deliberation, we decided that instead of potentially having the worst attended food show in history that we needed to cancel it indefinitely. The good news is, Jesse and I have decided that we will be putting the money we would have spent on the food show into more rep appreciation and retention programs. (More on that to be announced.)

I just wanted to let you know how sorry we are for making yet another change with this food show. It has been more difficult to put together than any other show in our 35-year history. Kim has been an absolute super star rolling with the punches and enduring all the changes that have been forced upon us with this huge undertaking.

If you have any questions regarding the food show please don’t hesitate to email me directly [email protected] and I’ll do my best to answer them as quickly as I can.

Thank you for your support, and even though we are unable to host a food show, I am STILL a firm believer that every problem is just an opportunity in disguise.

“Makes it all real!”

“As a new rep, I was really excited to meet people and to hear what some other people were doing. My business is very much part-time (really small) so I don’t expect to win any awards but it’s great to see other people rewarded for their work. And I loved seeing the staff people who make the website, the catalogs and all these huge deliveries happen every month. Makes it all real.”

Christi Herrick, Kit Carson, CO

“I love it and won’t be missing it!”

“I loved getting to meet all the other reps. I’m not gonna fib….. The prizes were pretty darn amazing too! Being in close proximity to the owners is so cool. Not every company gives you the opportunity to meet the top dogs. I love it and won’t be missing it!”

Haley Notter, Stratton, CO

“You won’t want to miss it!”

“I love food, so I love the food show! Where else can you try all the items in the catalog that you haven’t tried before? The rep night before is the icing on the cake. You can meet all the other reps and put names to faces. YOU WON’T WANT TO MISS IT!!”

Stacee Izatt, Nephi, UT


Where to Stay

Spend Friday and Saturday with us in beautiful Utah Valley.  Book a night at the Orem Hampton Inn & Suites* at our special Food Show rate of just $94/night with the button below.  The Hampton Inn is located directly across from the UCCU Center where Food Show events will be held. 

*To ensure availability, please make your reservations by Sept. 6th.

Contact, It’s the name of the game!

During rep calls each month, occasionally I hear a rep say “I only had one customer call me with an order” or “no one called me with orders”  When I hear these statements, I have to wonder how much follow up contact she is making with her customers. Is she waiting for them to call her with an order? Unfortunately, in the busy world in which we all live, this seldom happens. In my own personal business, if I don’t contact each customer until I receive a response, I wouldn’t even have a minimum order.  Part of the responsibility of being a rep is to work your business. By work, this means to advertise, promote and follow up with your customers.

One of the ways to follow up is to check with EACH customer through an avenue of communication i.e. Facebook messaging, Email, Texting and lastly phone calls. If you aren’t contacting your customers personally, then you are missing out on orders. Part of the customer service that we pride ourselves in is to watch out for our customers, to be an extra set of eyes for them. To offer her 100% customer service.  When I contact my customers, I am showing them that I care how busy their lives are and making sure that they didn’t forget to let me know if they wanted anything. As busy as we all tend to be, calling an AP rep with an order falls low on the list of priorities, right down there with cleaning up after the family dog!

rule of 7

Have you ever heard of the Rule of 7?  

This is an old marketing strategy. It states that a prospective customer needs to see or hear your marketing message at least seven times before they act and buy from you. Now, the number 7 isn’t set in stone, but you get the idea.  Our competition advertises in the media, our only form of advertising is our personal touch, through messaging and texting and calling.

Keeping the lines of communication is imperative in maintaining the working relationship with your customers. In Money Magazine, it states.

  “Part of relationship selling involves maintaining regular contact. If you neglect a client who has trust in your integrity as a person and as a salesperson, that client may finally be forced to turn to your competitor. (Who has probably been calling regularly to get their business.) So, make sure you not only build the relationship, but keep regular contact and keep all channels of communication open.”

As AP reps, we see our competitors every time we drive by the supermarket. If we want to earn the business of our customer, we must advertise just like the local grocery store. How do we advertise?  Here’s a couple of ideas for you to ponder on.

  1. If you hand deliver your catalogs, you are demonstrating one contact point to your customers. When you hand them a catalog, let them know that you will check back with them to see if they want anything.
  2. If you have your catalogs mailed, as convenient as it is, your customers are not receiving that personal touch. So, you MUST send out a notice to your customers to watch for that catalog, and to let you know if they don’t see it.
  3. Encourage them to order by offering contests. For example, an early bird contest, or when we go live with the new website, for anyone who places their own order.
  4. Make a Face Book post on your group or page once a week leading up to order week. You can use the pre-designed Face Book ads available on the pantryacademy blog  https://pantryacademy.com/category/sales-tools/images/
  5. Post once a day during order week on your Face Book group or page. Post pictures of your dinners, recipes using our products or share ideas from the Alison’s Pantry customer page.
  6. Text all your customers a reminder using a Mass Text app. (Hi Everyone, it’s order week, I know that life is busy and I don’t want you to miss out on any of our super deals this month. Please let me know by _________ if you want anything. I will check back with you if I don’t hear from you.)
  7. Finally, if you haven’t heard from them using any of the previous contact methods, please call them on the old-fashioned phone. (Hi _____, I hadn’t heard back from you and didn’t want to miss you if you needed something from Alison’s Pantry….. )
IMG_21062017_140738_0

In the Rule of Seven an article in http://www.thebabyboomerentrepreneur.com it states:

Too many entrepreneurs only market sporadically because they are “too busy” to market themselves. Then they wonder why they don’t have enough clients. Set aside regular times to engage in marketing activities, even when you’re busy.

We make the mistake of thinking that we are “bothering” the customer instead of offering great customer service. Look at it this way. If your friend found a screaming sale at the local mall and she went and saved a bunch of money and then didn’t tell you about it until the sale was over, would it bother you? You would think to yourself, (Wow, why didn’t you tell me?) Treat your relationship with your customers, the same way. Your customer wants to know of all the great products we offer and the sales, she isn’t always aware and doesn’t always have the time to look over the catalog. If you point out items that you love and use, then she will be more likely to trust you and order.

Good luck on your sales, and remember to check in with your customers often. If you need ideas for growth, please contact you RSM, she is willing to share ideas and help you grow.

Good Luck and Work Hard!
