WELCOME TO THE TEAM!
First and foremost let me be the first to say WELCOME! We're extremely excited to have your apart of our little family; now lets get you all setup!
We created this page to simplify the process of on-boarding our new ambassadors. So if you have any questions at all during these steps please reach out to your Team Lead for clarification and help!
Step 1: Lets get you tagged up
Add the following to your profile :
-Team Flatout : @flatoutapparel
-Your Branded Link : www.flatoutapp.com/x/example
(You will find out how to get your branded link below - continue reading)
To do this you will need to Click "Edit Profile" from your mobile. Make sure the links are clickable! And if you already have your own website linked in your profile consider possibly using LinkTree which will basically allow you to add multiple links on another window.
Add the following to your About Info :
- Brand Ambassador at Flatout Apparel Inc
To do this you will need to click "About Info" on your phone or "Edit Details" on your desktop. From there you will click "Add Work Experience" (Mobile) or "Add A Work Place" (Desktop). Once there Type "Flatout Apparel Inc" and for your Job Title Type "Brand Ambassador". Click save and you're done tagging up!
Step 2: Create your website account
Click this link here : https://flatoutapp.com/account/register
If you already have an account setup on our website - disregard this step, and let your Team Lead know this part is complete.
We will then modify your account to include your ambassador discount (which starts at 30% OFF Site wide - and with our new updates / changes (Effective February 2021) once you achieve certain total sales revenue your internal discount will increase.
$0 - $2499 (30% OFF SITE WIDE)
$2500 - $7499 (35% OFF SITE WIDE)
$7500 - $19,999 (40% OFF SITE WIDE)
$20,000 - $49,999 (45% OFF SITE WIDE)
$50,000+ (50% OFF SITE WIDE)
Then once you're officially setup and anytime you log in moving forward your new discounted pricing will populate automatically. As a note if you ever want to see stock levels all you need to do is go to the product page itself, and click on the size you're curious about and it will let you know.
Step 3: Setup your ambassador commission portal
Click this link to signup : http://bit.ly/flatoutsignup
Once we receive your registration info – we will approve it on our end and then assign you your new discount code. Once that has been done you will then be able to login with the link and the credentials you setup and used below.
How it works: Customers will utilize your branded short link(s) or discount code to generate 10% off their orders, which in turn will earn you 5% commission and will be payable in either store credit or paypal payouts. You can now utilize your Instagram bios, and facebook website links (or any other sites) with your new branded links. Once a customer clicks on your link it will bring them to our website and have a discount automatically applied at the cart / checkout phases (they won't need to enter anything) – basically simplifying the discount process. Alternatively if a customer just visits our website without your short link you can still get them to use your custom discount code (Example: FLAT10) in the cart / checkout pages for the same discount.
Your branded link discounts are meant for customers and NOT personal orders. Please make sure when you are ordering your own personal item(s) you are not applying further discounts to your already automatic ones prior to checking out.
“Free Shipping” at checkout will only apply to ambassador orders OVER $150, as we utilize the full margins in customers order to be able to compensate for having to pay for it.
- "Free Gifts" at checkout only apply to customers paying full retail. If you want to purchase accessories you can add them to your cart with your internal discount.
- All new ambassadors are subject to a 90 day probation period. During this period, Flatout Apparel reserves the right to suspend or terminate your recruitment for any reason including but not limited to: minimum requirements not being met, or inappropriately representing Flatout Apparel.
For any other questions on how everything works please do not hesitate to reach out to your team lead.
Please NOTE Your Personalized Discount codes ARE NOT to be posted permanently anywhere. We recommend utilizing them in your IG Story posts, or by ENGAGING with your potential buyers saying things like "message me for a discount", "Link in BIO", etc. This way you can have a conversation with your customer, and also help with any questions they may have (relationships are everything - so this is where your customer service experiences can shine and help close deals!).
Additional Notes: When you add it all up - a customer gets 10% off their order, you get 5%, that's 15% off the top. Then you add a 3% Credit Card Fee (If used), and if orders go over $100 the customer can use "Free Shipping" (which can be anywhere from 10-30$ extra depending where they live) which erodes profits as well. So if you can ever "pickup" or "deliver" orders to your friends / family it is extremely helpful for the business!
Step 4: Introduction Post
We're now ready to invite you to our private "Team Flatout" Facebook Page! This is where most of our internal conversation will be posted; which can include all kinds of things. Events, photoshoot opportunities, products / samples coming, sales / promotions, important updates, monthly internal contests, etc.
So now this is the part where you get to tell our little family all about you! We definitely recommend going all out on this post; some ideas can be to tell us what you do for work, hobbies / passions of yours, sports you may play, things you like to do, websites, social media accounts, etc - don't hold back; this is your time to shine! Feel free to post a picture of yourself too!
Step 5: Tell The World!
Although not mandatory - we highly recommend making a post on your social media accounts telling people about your new venture!
This will do a few things for you :
1) Make people aware of your new ambassadorship
2) Instantly helps you promote your new discount code for sales
3) Builds credibility and shows people you're committed
The easiest way to any kind of purchase or sale is by people "trusting" you. People want to know you're invested and in it for the long haul! My biggest word of advice is to put your own spin on things; people want the authentic you! Not a copied and pasted version. So have fun with branding yourself! Remember you weren't born to be basic, you we're born to stand out!
