1 PartyLite Advertising and Internet Policy for PartyLite Independent Consultants Advertising & Internet Policy Advertising your PartyLite business is not just a reflection of you but of PartyLite and every fellow PartyLite Consultant. This policy is not meant to restrict the promotion of your business but rather provide guidelines that respect and protect each and every Consultant s business. These guidelines include careful use of all PartyLite trademarks and logos. You must act in accordance with the following policies to guide how you use the PartyLite name in advertising in print and on the Internet. Advertising is a business investment with lots of potential, but no guarantees. Be patient, and consider testing different media to determine which are most effective for you. Remember, some of the best advertising remains work of mouth, which is why your excellent Customer service and follow-up in invaluable. Beyond the face-to-face contact and personal networking you do, there is an increasing value in networking through social media forums, such as Facebook and Twitter. On social media sites, find a friendly, consistent (not constant) way to direct people to your Web site, where you can follow up to convert each lead into at least one of the following: Customer, Host, new Consultant. An expanding source of leads that PartyLite Leaders can take advantage of are those generated by PartyLite through public relations, Facebook, Twitter and blogging. All leads that come to PartyLite.com are dispersed to the nearest S/RVP or Leader. ebusiness Package Personal Consultant Web Sites PartyLite offers a professional PartyLite personal Consultant Web site for all Consultants wishing to make the most use of the Internet. It provides consistent and professional messaging for all Consultants. Coupled with the monthly Candle Connection, an electronic newsletter distributed for you via e- mail to your Hosts and Guests, your personal Web site is the most valuable business-building tool you can have. Upon enrolling for the ebusiness package on my.partylite.com, you will have access to both your personal Consultant Web site and Candle Connection! You may not have any other Web site using the PartyLite trademarks and logos. PartyLite remains responsible under the DSA Code of Ethics for PartyLite Consultant Web sites. Benefits: Your Customers have access to online shopping with you 24-7 You and your Host use your site to create Guest lists, e-invitations, track who is coming to the Show and who orders online.

2 You can personalize your Web site with your PartyLite story, feature articles and special events Consultants may distribute their Personal Consultant Web site address through any medium, including and message boards. Enroll on my.partylite.com under ebusiness Enrollment for both the Consultant Web sites and Candle Connection services. NOTE: If you don t have a PartyLite Personal Consultant Web site, your Customers cannot shop online with you. Social Networking PartyLite encourages Consultants and Leaders to use social networking sites such as Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, YouTube, MySpace, Flickr and Yahoo to advertise and network their PartyLite business. By allowing Leaders and Consultants to participate in Internet-based networking and advertising, PartyLite is not endorsing any of these forums. In order to protect PartyLite as a Company and you as an Independent PartyLite Consultant, please adhere to the following list of guidelines and rules: Consultants are not permitted to refer to themselves in such a way that would lead anyone to believe they have control over a geographic area. A Consultant must comply with the following conditions when using the registered names PartyLite and our logo on all social media and personal Web sites: o o Each Consultant must refer to themselves as PartyLite Independent Consultant in all references to their affiliation with PartyLite. A Consultant is prohibited from posting copyrighted material from PartyLite with specific exceptions (i.e. approved catalog cover image and other images found in the Image Gallery on their personal Consultant Web site.) Copyrights must be acknowledged. A Consultant may not use any registered trademark name or logo in a Web site URL address, social media site, page name or personal Web site. This includes PartyLite, Two Sisters Gourmet by PartyLite or any other trademark name belonging to PartyLite. The ONLY approved Web site address containing the registered name PartyLite is an official PartyLite Consultant Web site that Consultant s may subscribe to through PartyLite. (See naming examples for more details.) A Consultant may include a biography on their site, which is a way to promote their PartyLite business and what they have to offer. SAMPLE TEXT: I have owned my own business with PartyLite for 5 years & love what I do. PartyLite is a candle and home fragrance company. I can help you redecorate your home and show you how to build a lucrative, flexible business with no out-of-pocket cost. You can shop 24-7 here on my Web site. Contact me with any questions.

Note: Check out bit.ly.com where you can convert a long Web address to a short one, especially if you have a Twitter account. A Consultant/Leader may link to the PartyLite public Web site from any social networking site, but to build your business, you will want to link from your social media sites to your own Web site. (Never post a link to your personal Consultant Web site on the PartyLite Facebook Fan Page or Twitter.) A Consultant/Leader may advertise charitable events, such as the American Cancer Society Relay For Life, on free online communities, including Facebook, MySpace, and Yahoo groups or blogs. Consultants must include in the ad. If you use product claims, use only the exact claims found in approved Company literature.
