No to network marketing

Why people are hesitant to join network marketing

Before dōTERRA I worked with 3 other Network Marketing companies and was TOTALLY fed up of feeling pressured to ‘sell’ products or ‘recruit’ team members with nauseating opportunity videos and spammy messages I was told to send. Voice messages from up-lines everyday, ‘sell sell sell’ So I was unhappy, not making the income I wanted so I quit!

I vowed never to join another, until I literally naturally just ended up in dōTERRA!? My decision, I wasn’t approached about the ‘business opportunity’ all I did was mention to a couple of my mum friends at school that I was tired as I wasn’t sleeping well. More on this later.

Selling

One main reason most people are hesitant to join a network marketing company is they simply don’t like the way they are taught to market or think they will have to ‘sell’ products? Not in our team!

So back to my sleep issue. One of the mums, (Sally Anne, my now up line and good friend) said oh I have an essential oil you cloud try to help if you like, I’ll give you a sample? I thanked her and agreed. Later that day she came over to me at school pick up, gave me a tiny bottle, told me it was ‘serenity’ a relaxing blend, to rub it on my hands breathe it in and rub the rest on my feet for a few nights to try and if it didn’t help she would give me another oil to try.

It did help me sleep by the second night I had a much better sleep. She asked me how I got on and I said I would love to get one, she told me of some oils she used around the house and asked if I would be interested in leaning more which I was. After we had had a chat about the oils and she lent me a book about them, I decided I wanted to get Lemon, On Guard, Melaleuca and Frankincense. I was excited and asked how to get them.

Sally Anne told me I could purchase them from the shop online (retail) directly, or I could get a wholesale account for myself with 25% off or we worked out the amount I was about to spend on just 5 oils, I could purchase what was called an enrolment kit (I had purchased enrolment kits with other companies, but I didn’t even realise at the time it was network marketing too) then I would get 4 of the oils I wanted in a kit of 10 had lemon, melaleuca, Frankincense and on guard, PLUS 6 others AND get 25% off the Serenity oil as I would automatically qualify as a wholesale customer for getting the kit! So I went for it.

Wow

Sally Anne had never needed to ‘sell’ me anything! I just wanted the oils for their benefits.

and then …

Sally Anne introduced me to a lovely lady who had been a cleaner for her and had decided to join her business, she would be hosting a class at a local village hall and would I like to come along, I did it was fun, interactive there was no mention of ‘joining the business’ and no pressure for anyone to buy anything there and then it was so relaxed and everyone just tried the amazing oils!

Later that week, because I wasn’t pressured, persuaded or harassed into joining the company I actually wanted to! So I did!

Home Parties

As above there are no sales parties like some, people are educated only if they want to know more then classes can be arranged and taught.

I totally get it, you don’t want to ask friends and family to host parties for you so that you can widen your warm and cold markets. In the hopes that somebody at said parties will also want to host one or even better join your team.

I’m here to tell you that’s the OLD way of network marketing, We should all do a leap for joy that we’re blessed enough to live in a time where we no long have to cal 100 people that we know and ask them to host a party.

I’ve done that and it’s horrible and awkward. If you’re a network marketing leader that’s teaching that method please stop. With the evolution of technology and resources shouldn’t we also evolve the way we do things?

How to get more customers without the need to sell to people

Welcome to the world of social media marketing! This is a life changer for anyone that wants to get into the network marketing industry as either a full time or on the side of the current business.

So… can you build a DoTERRA business without hosting home parties or classes (or being flat out annoying)?

If you didn’t realise from my journey story above. The answer is YES you absolutely can. By using the power of a website or social media you can make sales and build a team without ever leaving the comfort of your home. It’s just the time we live in. However if parties are your thing you can do those too.

We don’t sell we help and educate and give people a FREE chance to try before any purchase or sale.

Here are two ways you can start to build your DoTERRA business online Without ‘selling’.

  1. Start by building a personal brand posting regularly about the oils on your website or social media. Not just static sales photos but real post explaining your daily use or love for them, educate how to use them, and how you’re adding them to your lifestyle.

2. Give or post samples and then invite people to learn more if they want to. When it comes to websites or social media you must simply tell people what to do next. Inviting others to ask questions or shop, sign up to a new step or to even join if it feels right is how you go about doing this and making it a true business.

With everything, though, it takes consistency and commitment.

How Many Drops are there per Bottle of Essential Oil?

15 mL bottle = 250 drops. A 5 mL bottle = 85 drops. Easy as that! When you buy doTERRA’s CPTG (Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade) Essential Oils you want the oils to last while. It’s an investment in your family’s health but you also want to know exactly how many drops and if it’s worth a chance.

There’s about 170 drops or very approximate rolls in a 10 mL roll-on bottle. This is harder to measure unless you are taking the cap off and not using it as a roll on.

Top middle and base notes

Essential oil “notes”

Essential oil notes

Once you become more experienced with essential oils and as your collection grows you may want to learn more about blending.

Although you may simply be looking at blending a therapeutic oil for a certain ailment, the fragrance should still be “balanced” and in harmony and this is where the fragrance notes come into play.

Essential oils are classified by their “notes” or scent characteristics.

Top, middle and base

This chart shows the typical classification and can be used in combining essential oils.

Top Notes

Essential oils that are classified as top notes normally evaporate very fast and typically have anti-viral properties. They tend to be light, fresh and uplifting in nature and are usually inexpensive. Top notes are highly volatile, fast acting, and give the first impression of the blend. However, they are not very long lasting due to the evaporation.

Middle Notes

The bulk of essential oils are considered middle notes and normally give body to the blend and have a balancing effect. The aroma of middle notes are not always immediately evident and may take a couple of minutes to establish their scent. They are normally warm and soft fragrances.

Base Notes

Essential oils that are classified as base notes are normally very heavy and their fragrance is very solid. It will be present for a long time and slows down the evaporation of the other oils. These fragrances are normally intense and heady. They are normally rich and relaxing in nature and are typically the most expensive of all oils.

Blending

Blending does not only rely on the notes alone, since some oils are extremely fragrant and in some cases, overpoweringly so.

When using these very strongly fragranced oils, it is best to add a drop of oil at a time to prevent it from overpowering your entire blend.

Have fun and experiment

Blending oils can be fun, so remember that the end result should be to your liking, so it is no problem if you do not follow the guidelines about using the different notes at all – they are only guidelines to help you along.

3 Great Reasons to add essential oils to your Spa, Beauty Salon, Massage Practice or Clinic

  • Do you work at, own or operate a spa, beauty salon, massage practice or clinic?
  • Are you considering adding essential oils for retail, massage or aromatherapy skin care to the services you offer?
  • Would you like more information on how to offer essential oils and skin care products, treatments or essential oils easily?
  • Want to increase profits in your business.

If you answered yes, then you’re in the right place!

Adding essential oils to your business

Incorporating essential oil hair, face and skin care into your business can be a simple, pain-free experience.

It can provide many additional beauty benefits to your customers and at a cost-effective wholesale rate for your company and 25% profit.

While aromatherapy massage and aromatherapy skin care are different and require some different products, you can still use many of the same products in both treatments. So if you have a massage therapist on your team, and you’re considering adding essential oil skin care treatments to your spa, salon, clinic or practice, aromatherapy massages might be a great upsell item for your customer that will require little additional overhead, investment or inventory.

Alternatively if you want a larger inventory there’s as much choice as you want.

The only investments required to add essential oil skincare to your list of items, services or treatments your company offers is a little time and some inventory. While aromatherapy massage can be done quite well and have noticeable results for the body, face and skin with just a carrier oil and some essential oils, to properly approach aromatherapy skin care, you might need a few more items. Luckily, if you know where to look, many of these items can be found at affordable prices while still being made from 100% all-natural ingredients.

The time investment is just to learn more about the products and essential oils involved.
