How Stella & Dot Is Giving Old-Fashioned Direct Sales A Mobile Makeover
How a doing-it-all mom became an entrepreneur–and uses tech savvy and common sense to keep her business running.
When she founded Stella & Dot in 2003, Herrin had envisioned it as a direct sales company that would give its sales people, called “stylists,” a way to live balanced flexible entrepreneurial lives. Based on her own experience, she knew things had to change if she wanted to really scale the business.
In the past year in particular, Herrin has given the old-fashioned direct sales model a mobile makeover. And it’s working. Stella & Dot has 16,000 active stylists around the world and in 2013, the company made more than $220 million in sales, up from $100 million the previous year–thanks in large part to the company’s massive mobile push and integration of new technology.
Stella & Dot is what Herrin calls an “omni-channel business”–one that blends the in-person experience with technology. “For a lot of e-commerce companies, their challenge is competing with a company like Amazon. That’s why omni-channel retail can stand apart. It has something Amazon can never offer–a warm body on the end of each sale,” she says. “The use of technology has really unlocked how profitable this business can be.”
Here are four ways Herrin has worked mobile technology into her business model to help grow the company.
How do you train 16,000 stylists spread around the world? Stella & Dot has online affinity groups including ones for military spouses, stylists of color, stylists over 50, and the list goes on.
But the company uses more than just social media to connect stylists. Last month, it launched a mobile-optimized “Stylist Lounge,” which gives stylists mobile access to notifications, weekly training videos, peer-to-peer online training, and specific tools depending on how long they have been selling with Stella & Dot.
When new stylists log in, for example, they are given step-by step guidance on how to create their website, send their first trunk-show invitation, and make their first hostess call. More seasoned stylists in charge of teams can access business insights about their team and all stylists can easily choose and share from a collection of customized social media messages. “What used to be a log in and click, click, click is now a swipe and a tap,” says Herrin, who calls the mobile push an “on my phone or bust” model.
Direct-sales models often require sellers to have inventory on hand to sell to customers, which means unsold stuff can quickly start to pile up in their closets. Instead of doing this, Stella & Dot uses trunk shows to test inventory. Last year, the company launched an iPad app for stylists called Dottie that not only allows them to place orders directly to the distribution center in real time when a customer makes a purchase, but also includes tons of images of products that might not be on hand.
The danger, of course, is that the human connection the company so values could be compromised by stylists having screens in front of their faces. But it’s a worry that’s been taken into account when designing the app. “We’ve obsessed over the ease of use,” says Herrin. “We want it to be intuitive so that it doesn’t take away from the human connection.”
Another addition is the social media group called the Style Council, made up of hundreds of the company’s top sellers. The group has direct access to the design and merchandizing teams and votes on the pieces in each season’s collection that are showcased most prominently. “The feedback is very constant in real time,” says Herrin.
Gone are the days of driving around with trunks full of inventory to deliver. The Dottie app includes a form customers fill out when placing an order, which then gets directly sent to the distribution center. Before that was created, stylists had to keep track of orders on paper that they might not have a chance to submit until the following day. The automated form also lets customers double-check their information, which cuts down on mistakes.
At Stella & Dot, stylists play a huge role in marketing. They upload trunk-show photos to the Stella & Dot Instagram feed and are encouraged to post about their work on Facebook. But social media aside, the company has also created a mobile notification that pings stylists when orders are shipped, including the names and notes they took on the customers who made purchases. They can then tap on their phone numbers to make a follow-up call.
Bottom Line: “Our mobile tool isn’t just about sales or transactions. It makes our stylists better at customer service,” says Herrin. “We are using the combination of high tech and high touch to do better merchandizing.”

The latest statistics released by the CDC suggest 1 in every 88 American children are diagnosed with autism. In boys, that rate goes to 1 in 54. A child is diagnosed with autism every 15 minutes.
Those are staggering numbers, indeed. As a nanny for 12 years, I worked with several families who had children on the autism spectrum, so this cause hits home and is very close to my heart. Now, as a Stella & Dot Stylist, I feel like I can finally help. We can all aid in the research for the disorder during the month of April, which is recognized as Autism Awareness Month.
In April, Stella & Dot is donating 20% of all proceeds from the sales of the five jewelry pieces shown below to the HollyRod Foundation, a resource for families who face challenges in coping with autism disorder and Parkinson’s disease. The HollyRod Foundation was founded by actress Holly Robinson Peete and her husband, former NFL quarterback Rodney Peete. >>> Read more about the HollyRod Foundation HERE.

Check out the genuine turquoise Mary-Margaret Stone Ring from Stella & Dot in the April 2013 issue of Redbook magazine with Lauren Conrad on the cover (seriously love her!) in the “Fashion Under $50″ article. This ring is the perfect little pop of color for spring and summer. I love to stack this turquoise ring with the gold bands of the Stackable Band Rings, also from Stella & Dot jewelry (a set of five rings). I also love wearing my Ariella Collection “Faith” Ring from Nordies with it too. How do you stack your rings???
Kyle Richards hair gets the most Google searches, but I think her accessories are pretty awesome, as well.

Real housewife of Beverly Hills Adrienne Maloof has said she loves a big statement earring. And she was recently seen on an episode of Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills wearing gorgeous green drop earrings that everyone has been asking about. While I haven’t yet found the exact earrings that Adrienne Maloof wore on the show, I do recommend checking out these genuine green jade Serenity Stone Drop Earrings from Stella & Dot. For just $49, I’m sure it’s a lot less than the real housewife paid for her pair.
The green jade Serenity Stone Drop Earrings from Stella & Dot have been seen on Brooke Burke and Stacy Kiebler. And look-alike styles have been seen on actresses Reese Witherspoon, Charlize Theron, and Emma Stone, and on Bachelorette Emily Maynard. They also come in turquoise.

Forget “Work-Life Balance” — Give Us Choices Instead
By Susan Strayer LaMotte, founder, Exaqueo.
From Millennials to new moms, flexibility continues to top the list of what women want from work. Why do we care so much? Our lives require it. From carpooling and play dates to marathon training and boardroom presentations, we make it all fit — or at least, we try to. So it’s no surprise that women no longer want to choose between working or staying home, or some combination of those options.
Forget work-life balance. We want a little bit of everything.
The New “Balance” Problem
I met Lauren Sigler and Anne Brinker for coffee—easily spotted by their trademark Stella & Dot jewelry. Independent stylists for the growing jewelry and accessories brand, Sigler and Brinker are both confident, college-educated moms on a mission to figure out a way to meld work and home in a new way.
The question of working or staying home is decades old. In 1950, women made up less than 30 percent of the workforce. But in 1990, 53 percent of married households had both husband and wife employed. It wasn’t surprising that the number rose so dramatically. But 10 years later (2010) that number remained unchanged. And according to a 2011 Catalyst study, the number of dual-career households is even beginning to fall.
For American families, choosing to have mom stay home is still about a 50/50 split. It seems to be a yes or no decision, and it’s a big one. For women, staying home means sacrificing family income. Going back to work means investing in childcare and juggling home responsibilities.
Four years ago, Sigler and her husband were both attorneys working grueling schedules and trying to get home to be with their first daughter. It just didn’t work. When her second child was diagnosed with cerebral palsy, Sigler knew that a typical attorney’s career wasn’t in her future.
This is where it gets interesting for many motivated, educated moms. They have fond memories of having their own mom stay at home, but were also exposed to “you can do anything” messages of encouragement. They invested in college and graduate school only to have the same feelings their own mothers did about being able to stay home in some capacity to raise their children.
And frankly, women are done with having to choose one over the other. They’re demanding flexibility.
“Once we had our first child, I wanted to stay home,” says Brinker, who was an event planner before having kids. Afterwards, she couldn’t maintain that career with its taxing hours and odd schedule. “But I really wanted to keep a foot in the working world,” she says.
Direct Selling, Reinvented
Direct selling isn’t new — Avon was founded back in 1886. Today, 80 percent of the 15.1 million people in direct sales in the United States are women. But the type of woman finding success in direct sales has changed. Enter Stella & Dot.
“[We have] innovated a new business opportunity that we call social selling. We’ve built the business around the premise that women want to be in service, not in sales. They want to easily and authentically recommend products they truly love,” says Stella & Dot Founder & CEO Jessica Herrin.
Stella & Dot is direct sales reinvented for today’s well-educated, technologically savvy women (and a few men!) who are called Stylists. They get their own websites and don’t have to hold any inventory. They rely on social media to drive cocktail-fueled trunk shows where friends can play with the jewelry and orders are all done online—no pressure-filled order forms passed around the room.
And that’s what works for Sigler and Brinkler. They’re not engaging in pushy sales techniques or lugging product around fitting deliveries in between soccer practice and doctor’s appointments. They’re fitting it into their lives.
“We don’t [have time to] go shopping with our friends anymore so a trunk show is a good time to catch up,” says Sigler.
But flexibility isn’t just about the stay-at-home mom. Seventy percent of Stella & Dot stylists have another job. They like the flexibility of earning extra money in addition to a full-time role or the ability to meld it with other part-time gigs. It’s professional ownership. They’re in charge.
That’s exactly how Herrin wants it. Stella & Dot isn’t her first gig as an entrepreneur. She’d previously founded WeddingChannel.com, and realized she hated telling people what it took to be an entrepreneur: her entire life.
So why does it work? Well, for one, Sigler and Brinker aren’t your mother’s MaryKay representatives. While they were wearing Stella & Dot pieces (I recognized them from checking out the recent collection online), they didn’t point them out, pull out samples, or even try to convince me to host a trunk show.
They take the same approach at those shows. They lay the product out and sit back. There’s no order form passed around. Instead, hostesses share wine, snacks and stories to a soundtrack of Beyonce and Adele.
“It’s a product I can actually sell,” says Brinker, who tried other direct sales opportunities before finding Stella & Dot. “I just sit back and it sells itself.” And with half the line under $50 per piece, sell it does. In 2011, retail sales were over $175 million — projected to jump to over $200 million in 2012. The company has paid over $100 million to date in commission to their Stylists.
What Working Women Really Want
The success of Stella & Dot isn’t just another growth story for a modern business world. It’s a sign that traditional work as we know it is changing more quickly than we think.
We already know the workforce of the future isn’t 9-to-5. But most companies are touting flexibility as random telecommuting or flexible arrival and departure times. In a 2011 employee benefits survey from the Society of Human Resource Management (SHRM), only 35 percent of the almost 600 companies surveyed even offered a compressed work week, and only 13 percent offered job sharing.
That means we still have to cave to corporate demands. Forget it — it’s just not working anymore.
There’s a reason more women are graduating from college and yet the number of women in the workforce remains unchanged. There’s a reason women are starting their own businesses more than ever before. And a reason companies like Stella & Dot are experiencing massive growth. It’s all about choices—choices in how, when and where to work—and control.
“In a way,” says Herrin, “We’re democratizing entrepreneurship by taking away almost all of the capital risk of starting a business and the need to have specific experience.” Decrease the barriers to entry, decrease the risk, and you increase control — Stella & Dot stylists have an incredible amount of control over their own success or lack thereof.
And maybe that’s what all this flexibility is really about. My parents raised me with the idea that I could be whatever I wanted to be. I was in control of the choices I made. If I worked more hours at the Drug Emporium, I made more money for college. If I worked less, I had more time with friends. But it was my choice.
That’s the lesson most of corporate America could really stand to learn. Women want the opportunity to fit everything in — even if that means we work a little less and earn a little less. Don’t tell us what work-life balance is; let us decide. If companies don’t get creative now, they’ll run out of talent later.

What better way to celebrate New York Fashion Week than with an ultra-chic Stella & Dot “Style Lounge”?
This past weekend we did just so, setting up shop in the The Empire Hotel, located next to the infamous Lincoln Center, where the runway shows take place. Editors, industry influencers and celebrities including Kaylee Defer, Christian Siriano, AnnaSophia Robb, Megan Hilty, Lorena Garcia, Jamie Chung & Adrienne Warren, to name a few, stopped by to get a sneak peek of our new Holiday Collection in addition to the amazing ALICE By Temperley for Stella & Dot styles. To say we have some new Stella & Dot fans would be an understatement as guests could not stop raving about the collection as they exited!
Step inside the Stella & Dot Style Lounge and catch a few fun moments from the event:
The mission of the Stella & Dot Foundation is to help empower women and children through economic and educational development. All proceeds from the Foundation Bracelet & Foundation Charms contribute to this charitable cause and benefit three Foundation partners:
- Accion — Committed to bringing affordable small business loans to entrepreneurs
- Girls Inc– Inspiring all girls to be strong, smart and bold
- buildOn — Breaking the cycle of poverty, illiteracy, and low expectations through service & education
As a personal volunteer and college-prep mentor for my local Girls Inc. chapter in Costa Mesa, CA, this cause hits close to home. I spend 4 hours each week as a “college prep” mentor for high school girls and a volunteer for kids ages 5-12 years old, and I have a personal goal to sell 100 Foundation items by October 15th. This would put me in the “running” to visit NYC with our CEO, and to work hands-on with high school students in the Bronx and volunteer in their local community through Girls Inc. and buildOn.
Since this cause is so close to my heart, I have decided to personally donate an additional $5 to my local Girls Inc. chapter for each foundation item sold.
