U design jewelry was founded in 2003 by Jennifer and Bret Bonacorsi and started direct sales in 2004. They give customers the opportunity to design their own jewelry and U Design Jewelry will do it for them. Products included are necklaces, watches, bracelets, earrings, and more. In addition, they provide a business or income opportunity for those interested in making money marketing their business or products, or the idea of their products. U Design Jewelry also has over 200 design officers!
There really isn’t much to talk about here. I usually went through the company’s basic product line and offerings, and gave a brief explanation of some of their products. However, U Design Jewelry doesn’t actually have products. Their slogan is “You Design It, We Make It”. That’s it! However, I will do my best to provide as much information as possible. They only use high quality pearls and high quality jewelry. They do not offer costume jewelry! They only use sterling silver, lamp work, Rossi crystals, valley silver, semi-precious stones and so much more!
I couldn’t find their compensation plan. I can only assume that this company doesn’t offer one because they feel they don’t have to. Basically, you need to purchase one of the starter kits (which will be explained shortly), which is where you can find resources, tools, and products to start designing with. This also includes ready-made jewelry. After getting one of these kits you can have parties and make your own money your own way. The company itself doesn’t pay you! You buy products or products to design and then sell everything.
After you’ve sold everything, you will make enough money to buy another kit. You buy another kit, sell the entire kit, and buy another kit. You will continue this process until you are either bored or you retire. In terms of network marketing, you could certainly market their products or your products online and generate sales much faster, but there is nothing else but to do and have physical parties. There’s no referral or recruiting compensation I’ve seen.
In conclusion: Yes, you can make money with U Design Jewelry!
For most people interested in a business like this, cost is the single most important question that needs to be answered before proceeding in any way. It is important to note that when you sign up for a company like U Design Jewelry, you are starting your own business. All companies charge an entry fee. For example, a construction business might take $ 5,000-10,000 to start. The nice thing about network marketing is that you still have to have money to make money, but it’s generally much lower than the cost of a traditional business.
If you want to create a source of income and take advantage of the “opportunity” that U Design Jewelry offers, you will need to purchase one of two kits.
- Starter Kit Uno – $ 1,500.
- Starter Kit Dos – $ 2,500.
Both kits contain a wide variety of beads, tools and accessories, sales cards, personal business cards and catalogs. The only difference between the two starter kits is that the second contains more items than the first. In addition, you can take a 3-4 hour training course to get your business going right away. An already successful design officer will also help you with your first party, sales and design. Quarterly and monthly meetings are also available for additional learning experiences.
I will do my best not to be critical. However, U Design Jewelry is not network marketing. It’s not even related to marketing. Let’s be honest Representatives in this company are simply sales people. U Design Jewelry belongs to the multilevel marketing category, but I’m having trouble seeing how. You don’t do multi-level marketing. I’ll take it one topic at a time.
The products are neat and interesting. You can design your own jewelry and the company will make it for you. If you have a passion for fashion design when it comes to jewelry you should be very excited.
The opportunity is not an opportunity at all. When I use the term “opportunity” I am referring to a compensation plan. an opportunity to earn a substantial income from home. Although you can make money from this business from home, you cannot make money from network marketing. The business opportunity is more like starting your own traditional business, but you can do the work from home. An opportunity, as I see it, is the chance to work from home and make a substantial residual income as your own boss, set your own hours and most importantly choose exactly how much money you want to make and then just make it ! U Design Jewelry offers something that is more like a day job, but from home.
The cost is both cheap and expensive. It is certainly cheap compared to other traditional companies. It’s expensive considering becoming a sales rep from home.
This is a great opportunity for anyone who wants to make money from partying at home and convince people to buy jewelry. I wouldn’t recommend this company to network marketers. Just remember, I’m NOT trying to dissuade you from the company or give the company a bad name. I make money fast! I don’t like throwing parties and hoping that my friends and family will buy my jewelry.
