Why We Say “We Do Not Recommend”

Occasionally, when we post new-catalog or new-product information on the demonstrator website, we’ll include language that states we “do not recommend” sharing videos, etc., with your customers before the customer launch date.

When we state “we do not recommend,” that does not mean it’s against the rules. In fact, if it was against the rules, we would state “do not” and just leave the “recommend” off altogether!

The reason we say “we do not recommend” is because we believe it isn’t a good business practice to spend time actively promoting a product to your customers that is not yet available for them to purchase. So while you were allowed to promote, for example, Stampin’ Blends before we announced a customer go-live date, we recommended spending your limited time on promoting products that were available for purchase—like products from the holiday or annual catalogs.

So in the future if you see those four little words—“we do not recommend”—it doesn’t mean you can’t; it just means we feel it wouldn’t be in the best interest of your business. However, as independent demonstrators, ultimately it’s up to you to decide what you want to promote and when (within the policies set forth by Stampin’ Up! in the Demonstrator Policies document).
