I’m still not convinced, isa…
That’s ok. Let me help you out of your resistances.
1. I DON’T LIKE NETWORK MARKETING
I totally get that. A lot of people feel that way. The thing I love is that dōTERRA is meant to be a network marketing company. There is no other model that serves it so well. First of all, people need to be educated when getting their essential oils. You simply cannot safely sell those in a retail shop without previous education.
This is all planned. Mother Earth is on a mission of healing the world. To heal the world you need to heal every single individual. The chance of pure grade essential oils entering 7 million houses in a retail shop model is simply not possible. Before dōTERRA essential oils were seen as hippie who-hoo. Nowadays, they are respected natural medication being used by doctors and hospitals all over the world.
There is simply no better way for Mother Earth to do that than via Network Marketing, the easiest and most powerful way to get the word out. Network marketing is THE opportunity to educate and empower the ones we love with natural solutions.
2. IT’S A PYRAMID SCHEME
While pyramid schemes have been common in the 80s, it’s important to mention that they are illegal nowadays. That being said, it is simply not possible that the largest company of essential oils in the world is having an illegal activity.
As a second point, it’s important to mention that pyramid schemes do not have any product, they sell only an opportunity to earn money by bringing others in the team. This is by far NOT what dōTERRA is about. 85% of all accounts are from wholesale customers, this is a huge customers database. This is unheard of in Network Marketing companies. Finally, dōTERRA’s compensation plan is built in such a way that you are not frantically looking for new partners but empowering the 3 leaders you build this business with. Sure, you are looking for business partners but just like in every other organisation you would assemble your organisational team with sales and marketing specialists.
3. IT’S TOO EXPENSIVE
Yep, that’s right. And it should be. You see, you are consistently voting with your dollar. Every time you purchase something you are supporting the world you want to live in. dōTERRA is an organisation with the highest ethical and scientific standards. We are consciously choosing to work with global partners and to invest in local communities with Healing Hand Foundations, this increases company costs. We are talking about giving people dignity and there is a price to it.
Finally, the essential oils being so expensive allows us to truly value what it is. Think about, a bottle of Lemon Essential Oil has 15ml and approx. 60 lemons in it. Imagine being able to buy 60 lemons for 3 dollars. That’s insane. The price reflects the care to nature and humans involved in that production price. It’s precious and it should be.
