Selling doTERRA oils is a great way to make money on the side or over time as a full time career, but is it really possible to make a living from doTERRA?
Anyone reading this page or listening to my podcasts has already a desire for a healthier lifestyle and to earn extra money. If you haven’t already realized, your actions when searching to become a doTERRA wellness advocate, consultant or rep means that you have already made a decision to be more than you are.
My name is Steven Jackson and I am a wellness advocate leader with doTERRA. I am also an online marketer, eBook author and podcaster for many years. I saw doTERRA as a great opportunity to bring all my skills and knowledge together in one goal. The goal was to become financially independent and live and work wherever I pleased, (as long as my wife said it was OK).
Fortunately, for me and my marriage, my wife does think it’s OK, because now she enjoys the fruits of my labour and the sunshine that comes with it.
So, lets say for argument sake, you have been searching the internet to become a Wellness Advocate and you have found me.
Why join a doTERRA leader rather than someone else?
Unfortunately, not all Wellness Advocates are equal. Most wellness advocates do not consider themselves or even want to see themselves as leaders. So it not surprising why searching for a good mentor and supportive leader is difficult to do.
However, a deeper question needs to be asked of yourself and what your motivations are for joining doTERRA. I don’t believe that anyone expects someone new to doTERRA to be a confident, knowledgeable and a focused leader for day one. However, there needs to be a desire to be more than you are. So, to find out what you want from doTERRA you should ask yourself these questions:
- Do you want to:
- Join doTERRA to earn extra money?
- Just purchase oils at 25% below retail?
- Do you see doTERRA as a:
- Serious business?
- A nice little part time hobby?
- Do you want to:
- Learn new skills and be proactive?
- Learn nothing, because you are not interested in being too involved?
- Do you want to:
- Invest 20 or more hours a week in your business?
- Do a few funny hours here and there?
- Do you want to:
- Be a leader and run a large team?
- Do you want to just run a few parties with no responsibilities?
- Do you want to:
- Be mentored by an experienced leader in doTERRA?
- Do you want to do it in your own time?
As you might have noticed the questions are loaded and very black and white. There is no wrong answers but your answers will tell you what you want from doTERRA.
Results: If you have answered with all “A” statements then it is possible you are a leader. However, if you have answered with all “B” statements you are not ready to commit to the business. This does not mean you will not be in the future, but at this time you are not. This means you may be more interested in becoming a wholesale customer. A mix of “A” and “B” statements could indicate that you would be more comfortable as a low key and part time wellness advocate.
As you can see, not all Wellness Advocates are equal because we all don’t want the same thing. However, if you have joined doTERRA to make extra money and to build a business you are in the right place. However, you will need to be willing to invest your time in learning and working on your business. This means you seriously need to consider carefully who you are joining. It will make a difference between success and failure.
Why join my doTERRA essential oils team?
After over 20 years in the network marketing and later in the online marketing industry, I have a track record of helping and supporting new members to success.
How I help and support a new leader
As I hinted, not every doTERRA essential oils consultant wants to become a leader. Some just want to sell essential oils and buy doTERRA essential oils wholesale, which is completely fine. However, for those who want more, I am committed to give you 110% of my time and energy towards your success. In addition, I will educate and train you on how to become successful in your doTERRA business. This will include one on one training, additional online and regional training and personally help to build your team if I see potential.
This is my commitment to you.
What do I expect from my leaders
Simply, I expect commitment. Starting a doTERRA business means putting in the time and energy into making your business work. Even though the startup fee is only 35$ (20€ / £20) it does not mean it is less of a business. So commit yourself to 15 – 20 hours a week and over time you will be successful.
These are some traits and actions that need to be taken for someone to be a successful leader:
- Be a serious dreamer
- Aim for your goals
- Aim high!
- Know your WHY!
- List all the possible changes you will need to make in your life
- Clarify all skills needed to achieve your set of goals
- Make your goals achievable
- Make a 1-year plan
- Specify the moves you need to make to achieve your goals
- Mark all the things you will do within a year on your calendar
- Always make assessments on your business plan
- Become a Leader
How much can someone earn selling doTERRA products and what does doTERRA income disclosure mean?
A good question and one that everyone should ask from day one. My wife is a real estate agent and she knows exactly what she is earning. So, to make it clear, this is not a job and you do not earn wages. When you join doTERRA you are self employed or for a better word a freelancer. So, the money earned comes from the work you do as commissions. The income disclosure just means that the average annual earnings shown on the chart are not guaranteed wages, but commissions for the work you have done.
Below are the three types of wellness advocate we find in this business and what their earn potentials are:
Wellness advocates that simply love the oils
Many wellness advocates that join doTERRA, because they love the oils and they can purchase them at the wholesale price. However, they may never earn commissions. The main reason is dependent on many factors including investment of time, interpersonal skills and leadership abilities. This may factor for almost 70% of all the Wellness Advocates globally.
Part-time Wellness advocates
On the other hand, wellness advocates that work part time and achieve the lower ranks may earn a small income. These are people who have reached Manager, Director and Executive pay ranks. Those who achieve these lower ranks, could earn anything between $700 and $1700 a year depending on their rank and how much they commit to their business.
In the mid range ranks such as Elite and Premier earn an average annual part-time income of between $4,281 to $10,507.
Wellness Advocate leaders
Anyone achieving the Silver rank or above are considered leaders. When someone achieves these ranks they already understand the power and the income possibilities of being with doTERRA. About 62% of the active members will achieve the rank of Silver and have an average annual income of about $28,205.
For the full doTERRA income disclosure pay details for ranks Silver and about please refer to the chart below:
So, what do the different types of Wellness Advocate tell us?
Of course, it tells us that we are all different and we all want different things in life. We may all want some kind of success in life, but we may not want to be a successful Wellness Advocate.
However, those of you who want to become successful here is the last peace to the puzzle to make it clear. The most important factor for the part-time reps and leaders are customers.
- Are there enough customers?
- Will they return for more products?
- Will they want to become wholesale customers or wellness advocates at a later date?
Fortunately, 80% of all new members in the United States join as wholesale customers or retail customers. This means that there is a massive customer base which provides a very stable income for the wellness advocate. In addition, doTERRA enjoys a 65 percent retention rate, compared to the direct sell industry average which is nearer 10 percent. This means when someone becomes a doTERRA customer, 65 percent of them reorder, share the products, or build a business.
doTERRA income disclosure: The earnings disclosure provides solid figures about the real earnings of the average distributor. All earnings are made on a freelance basis and so is achieved by the work the distributor puts into their business.
Why join doTERRA?
This is a question I was asked recently when I was doing a prospecting call. He was looking to join doTERRA because he had heard good things about them.
He simply asked me,”What do you think, honestly?”
I told him that “doTERRA is one of the best businesses of its type”. doTERRA is an honest, reliable and a safe company and the best I have ever worked with. They help bring the best out of people regardless of their gender, race or social class. I believe that doTERRA is one of the best home based businesses around and offers the best essential oils available in the world today.
The process I went through before I joined doTERRA was quite simple. I wanted to join an essential oils business, so that I could make money. The products needed to be sellable and high quality while the company needed to be honest, reliable and professional. Of course, before joining any business we need to have faith and a belief that the company is legitimate. However, we can’t be 100% sure until we have enrolled in the system.
I was lucky
doTERRA is a great example of how a network marketing company should be run, because everything on the whole works.
How about their essential oils?
For many, the oils are the prime reason for joining doTERRA. Words I consistently hear since being with doTERRA is sustainability, purity and quality. This starts from the harvesting of the raw product and how the workers are treated. This continues into the testing and the quality protocol and onto the customer.
This has been doTERRA’s vision from the very start when they were founded in 2008. Today they still ensure that their oils are at the highest standard possible via their quality protocol. The quality protocol was created to guarantee the therapeutic grade standard of the oils. This means the oils are undiluted and pure, free from artificial ingredients, fillers, contaminants, pesticides or other chemical residues.
Tell me more about doTERRA’s sustainability policy
Sourcing of the raw products and creating sustainable harvesting as well as living and working conditions of the workers is an important measurement of doTERRA’s global success. doTERRA works in many developing countries and has developed long term, mutually beneficial partnerships. This has helped create sustainable jobs and provide reliable incomes in underdeveloped areas.
doTERRA sources to date 130 oils from 40 countries worldwide. This ensures that the plants are grown where they are meant to be grown while given back to society.
Does selling doTERRA products mean I need to have full knowledge of essential oils?
Of course, it would be great if you were an aromatherapist, but having full knowledge of the oils is not necessary at the start. Over time everybody involved with doTERRA learns about the oils because they are immersed into the essential oils culture.
What are essential oils?
They can be used topically, aromatically and internally for various ailments and conditions. Essential oils contain antimicrobial, antiviral and antifungal properties. Their benefits have been shared with the world for over 4000 years in health care, food preparation, beauty treatments and even religious ceremonies. This means for many who believe that nature is best and a chemical free home is a healthy home. Using essential oils is not only a pleasant aroma, but also a must have addition to their home.
What are the benefits of using essential oils?
My first experience with essential oils was some years ago when my wife started using them. She was using them for diffusing our home as an air refresher because we had a dog. She would normally use lavender, orange or even peppermint from the local health shop, but complained that they were sickly sweet and not always pleasant.
Since, I was working online and in network marketing I promised I would search for something better. That is when I was introduced to doTERRA. The first thing we noticed about doTERRA’s products was the quality. This is when we realized that the quality of the oil was connected to their benefits. In doTERRA the quality protocol ensures that the oils are of a high quality.
What can essential oils be used for in everyday life?
The uses are vast, for example you can create a first aid kit with essential oils at its base, insect repellent and even on horses when they have colic. Essential oils can also aid digestion, lessen pain, boost mood and memory, decrease inflammation and support a healthy immune response.
Some other uses of essential oils are:
- They can be used to clean cuts and grazes
- For those who wants to detox the homes, essential oils are great as household cleaning products
- They can be diffused as a air refresher at home or at work
- They can be used in cooking
- Lavender oil can be diffused next to the bed as a great way to promote sleep
- And my personal favorite because I suffer from sinuses is peppermint oil
These are just a few examples of how to use essential oils. If you would like more information and a free essential oils guide . Click on the download button below.
How do you use doTERRA essential oils?
Generally, essential oils come in two types; they are single oil and blended oils. A single oil is as it says, an oil that has only one raw product in its makeup, for example, lavender oil only uses lavender plants in the oil. On the other hand, a blended oil may continue many oils and may even continue a carrier oil given it a shorter shelf life. One example of a doTERRA blend is the AromaTouch blend. Its ingredients include Cypress Leaf, Peppermint Plant, Marjoram Leaf, Basil Leaf, Grapefruit Peel, Lavender Flower essential oils. and should be used with a carrier oils.
There are three methods of using essential oils, they are aromatically, topically and internally.
The aroma method of using the oils is the most common and if you have ever used the low quality oils you have used a candle diffuser to create an aroma at home.
However, when you use doTERRA oils in these methods you can use it also as a facial steamer to clear your airway and skin or even in a sauna to detox the body. Even inhaling the oils such as peppermint or eucalyptus will clear your airways fast.
When we use the word topically it means to put the oil onto the skin, such as in a massage, in a bath or rubbed into your hair. It is suggested that oils applied topically should be used with a carrier oil such as coconut oil. The therapeutic benefits of the oils travels around the bloodstream to support skin conditions as well as muscular and joint pain.
The idea of consuming essential oils is something of a personal choice. However, let me assure you, it is OK, doTERRA oils are 100% pure therapeutic grade essential oils, which means there are no impurities. At the same time, do not use any essential oils internally apart from those that guarantee 100% purity such as doTERRA. I personally don’t have an issue with it and my wife uses the oils internally all the time for various reasons.
Here are a few common examples:
- Peppermint oil: A few drops in green tea to create a peppermint green tea
- Oregano oil: A few drops in Italian food to give it a real strong Oregano flavor
- Lemon oil: A few drops of ice and water for a refreshing lift you up.
