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.

Doterra Compensation Plan

Did you know that the minimum required OV (Team Volume) for a doTERRA® Presidential Diamond is 162,000 OV, while other companies require their top leaders to have 1 million or more in team volume? doTERRA is also unique in that it has a retention rate of more than 70 percent, while other companies average 10–20 percent. A major reason for this loyalty is doTERRA provides a product that people love and need. A second reason, is that our compensation plan is designed to benefit our Wellness Advocates not only in the beginning, but also and especially over the long-term.

In the direct selling world, there are three basic compensation plans that companies use: binary, breakaway, and unilevel. Of the three, doTERRA decided that a unilevel plan was the best option for Wellness Advocates. Why? The answer is in the comparison.

What are the three types of compensation plans?

  1. Binary:

    Only two people can be placed on your frontline. 

    Compensation is based on the group volume of each leg. 

    Commissions are usually paid on the weaker leg.

    This plan is not driven by levels, but the volume within an organization is limited for payouts. 

    When a distributor doesn’t qualify, commissions return to the company.

     
  2. Breakaway: 

    Your business-focused downline breaks away from your team when they decide they want to build for themselves. 

    There are monthly team volume requirements for all leaders. 

    When a leader breaks away, they take their volume with them. 

    Leaders are then paid on the number of generations of downline groups.

     
  3. Unilevel:

    Each builder is paid on individual levels.

    Structure is very important. The placement of individuals in your downline is key. 

    Requirements for rank and bonuses are based on OV (team volume) and width. 

    There are no limits on width or depth, but you are only paid on a limited number of levels (seven in doTERRA).
     

What are the pros and cons of each plan?

  1. Binary

    1. Pros:

    The plan is easy to explain. 

    There are frequent payouts.


    2. Cons: 

    Usually people are only paid on their weakest leg. There is no reward for the leg that represents the greatest amount of effort. 

    You have to have two legs to get paid. 

    The plan faces regulatory challenges, both from the FTC and abroad.

    It is only good for single-product companies.

    It is more beneficial for business owners than consumers.

    Revenue is not continuous—it will be up sometimes and down just as quickly.

     
  2. Breakaway 

    1. Pros:

    Your payout could be very large. 

    It is a great plan for those with exceptional recruiting and selling skills.


    2. Cons: 

    The plan itself is difficult to understand. 

    Distributors have a tendency to stockpile product.

    The plan pays the highest levels the most money, while significantly less goes to the lower levels. 

    There is a low retention rate.

    It creates competition within the organization.

     
  3. Unilevel

    1. Pros: 

    It provides a great option for part-time distributors. 

    There are supplemental bonuses. 

    The payouts are large.

    There are no limits on the number of people who can be on a distributor’s frontline. 

    Residual income is secure.


    2. Cons: 

    There are limited levels of pay. 

    It requires time and hard work to build. 

    It is usually slower to build.

    There are smaller checks initially.
     

Unilevel Plus

In looking at the pros and cons, the founding executives decided that the unilevel plan would be the most likely to achieve their goals for doTERRA. However, they wanted to create a way that those who were just starting to build the business could earn money as well. That is why they added Fast Start and Power of 3 bonuses. In this way you can build a long-term income, but have bonuses to get you there along the way. They also added the Founder’s Club and Bonus Pools, so that your hard work and effort to get to higher ranks will be even more beneficial.

Essential oil soap making

The step-by-step instructions for this DIY Soap are easy to follow, with an end product that smells lovely and you can personalise it to the issue you’re treating or the mood you’re trying to create.
