What does success look like when you become a doTERRA distributor?
A key solution for making money in doTERRA is that the Wellness Advocate has or is willing to learn and develop traits. The willingness to modify our behavior will improve our chances of success.
Positive and beneficial traits are such are:
- Being outgoing
- Having determination
- Being a self-starter
- Being persistent
Without these traits becoming a doTERRA advocate would be a tough fit, but it has been said that doTERRA is not just a business opportunity, it is also a safe environment for personal development. So, never fear, if you really want something bad enough you will achieve it with doTERRA.
How to sell essential oils from your home with passion?
Another key element to making a profitable living from doTERRA is being passionate about the products and the business opportunity. In my opinion, this is not difficult because doTERRA essential oils are outstanding. When a doTERRA consultant is passionate about the oils and the opportunity, they are far more likely to become successful.
Creating a list is how to make money with doTERRA
When you are starting your doTERRA business it will help if you have a solid list of customers and prospects base. These are people who are already lined up and ready to purchase your oils or join your business. I suggest to all of my new advocates to write down 50 names of people that they believe will be interested in doTERRA.
This is just the start, so be prepared to create a system for finding new prospects. The chances are only a few of your friends and family will be interested in what you have to offer. So, this means that you need to continuously updating of your list as needed.
Joining my team does mean learning a dynamic prospecting methods that will guarantee endless leads.
However, a few is all you need. Once you have your first consultant help them build their team. Start by helping them write their list of 50 names with the assistance of your enroller.
For the more technically minded, consider using a mailing service such as Mailchimp or Aweber. This will make it easier to update customers and prospects about new developments in doTERRA such as products and offers.
Should I use doTERRA business cards when I become a doTERRA Consultant?
There is an argument for sharing doTERRA business cards, but I am more skeptical since we live in a digital and technology-driven society. Technology has become a more accepted medium for reaching out to customers and prospects. However, there is something to be said about personal relationships and meeting someone in person for a coffee.
So, consider integrating the two by using smartphone business cards such as Inigo cards where you can add your webpage, email, social media and even video mediums. I have personally found this method very effective, but I really prefer getting the prospect information such as name and email address. This means that I can reach out to them later and drip feed them information until they can decide if doTERRA is for them or not.
Creating leads for your warm leads list should be your main goal when building your business. We already know from the start that we will run out of family and friends in quick time, so we need to find other means of finding prospects and customers for our doTERRA business.
The million dollar question is how
The fact is more leads, means more customers, means more money!
I personally use many different methods, so I will share just a few with you, which may help you get started building your business as fast as possible.
Creating a new contact list tips:
- Start a doTERRA essential oil draw at your local social event, church social or office. Ask participates give their name, email address and telephone number to have the opportunity to win some oils or a diffuser.
- Once you have collected enough names you can pick a name of the person who is going to receive the prize.
- The others receive an email telling them who won the prize
- Everyone added to your marketing / newsletter list should understand that they will receive marketing material in the future
This method also works well on social media platforms by creating a group that offers a free doTERRA draw, but I would suggest that the social media method is a local event because, posting products around the globe could get expensive.
If this idea doesn't interest you, tried a tried and test method that many wellness advocates enjoy. It is running doTERRA classes or parties. This method is done in an educational format where the doTERRA sales representative offers the opportunity to prospective customers to learn about doTERRA oils and their uses. doTERRA classes give the customer the chance to see and use the products first hand. To attract participants the host often offers free products or testers.
