When you experience something wonderful that has made a difference in your own life, you naturally want to share it with those you care about!

Sharing is rewarding! As you continue to empower others with natural solutions, you empower yourself. Many of you know of loved ones in your life that would greatly benefit from dōTERRA essential oils integrated into their life and home.

Let us answer some of the top asked questions about the dōTERRA opportunity

Q. Why dōTERRA choose to use a MLM - Network Marketing model and why it works so well.

dōTERRA markets their oils through Direct Selling. This can also be known as Network Marketing or Multi-Level Marketing.

Network Marketing is simply a vehicle to get these oils into the hands of the people who need them most, however the value and reasons dōTERRA is the best Network marketing company in the world isn’t based solely on the business model itself.

Although because of the business model that dōTERRA uses to market their oils, Direct Selling, any individual like you or I can create and nurture our own small business. While Direct Selling or Network Marketing in no way limits the dōTERRA opportunity to women, it is true that most who do run a thriving small business leveraging the dōTERRA products are women.

Where big corporations invest their billions of marketing dollars into advertising, sponsorship’s, ambassadorships and other marketing, dōTERRA market through word of mouth sales or direct sales, from their existing loyal customers (that’s us!!). They invest their marketing dollars into paying us a small commission each time someone purchases through us, delivering that money directly into the pockets of us small business owners world wide.

When you take the oils off the dusty shelves and into the hands of women, mothers and our homes we can really impact lives. Sharing our experiences and testimonies backed by dōTERRA resources and science we can really reach far and wide.

Q.What does the companies retention rate look like?

dōTERRA enjoys a 68 percent retention rate, compared to a direct selling industry average near 10 percent. After joining doTERRA, 68 percent of all customers reorder, continue to share dōTERRA products, or build a dōTERRA business. Why? 

  1. Customers and Wellness Advocates are satisfied with product value

  2. High satisfaction levels lead to a desire to share products and success with others

The Peppermint Drop Collective has many resources to help you and your organization, help your wholesale customers see the value in our team and most important the oils.

Q. What makes doTERRA different from all the other oil companies around the world?

Many people ask why buy oils from doTERRA when they can buy them from the health food store? I don't want to pay $88 for Frankincense when I can get it from the TSC store or Best Buy for $10 (true story). I could write a novel on this but I want to keep it simple.

  1. I let people's nose do the deciding. I was blown away from the difference of the main oils like peppermint, lavender and lemon.

  2. Sourcing - While others in the essential oil industry cut corners during the planting, growing, and harvesting process, or even try to “extend” pure oils by adding less expensive ingredients, dōTERRA is uncompromisingly selective. Sourcing Where Plants Thrive Most
    In order to work with committed partners and to ensure the best growing conditions, dōTERRA sources essential oils from across the globe. With an ever-expanding product line that includes over 100 different essential oils sourced from over 40 nations, dōTERRA truly offers Earth’s best gifts. This is the best site to send anyone questioning - here

  3. Cō-Impact Sourcing® - In addition to supplying the highest quality essential oils dōTERRA is committed to making a positive difference in the lives of farmers, harvesters, and distillers who contribute to dōTERRA oil production. Look at sourcing here.

  4. CPTG Quality Testing - The purity of an essential oil is its most important characteristic. An essential oil that isn’t pure means you run the risk of putting germs, heavy metals, or adulterants onto or into your body, which can provoke irritation, adverse effects, or even sickness. Look at testing here.

Q.How much does it cost to start the biz?

This question is asked often. The answer is NOTHING. Most oilers start as a Wholesale Customer, when you decide to share essential oils with the world and you want to start earning you must 1st upgrade from a wholesale customer to a wellness advocate (which is free.) There are a few reasons for this.

  1. You now have a personalized link to send people to enroll under you. Under My Online Store click Preview My Business Site then Join and Save is to enroll as a wholesale customer. It will look like mine. your WA# will be populated.

  2. dōTERRA can now pay you for sharing and enrolling someone with you. The money you earn will be collected in an A/R balance that you can use to pay for your orders directly or cash out.

  3. You will be asked to enter your SIN in a secure server. This is so dōTERRA can pay you. You will also receive a T4 at tax time which is handy. You don’t have to figure out the totals...dōTERRA does it for you.

Q.How do you earn money?

The answer to this question is going to vary from person to person. {scroll to the question below for an idea of numbers} The pay rate is strictly based off of what you put in and how open you are to being coachable, learning from those who went before you. This most definitely isn't a get rich quick business and requires time to build your residual income stream. That being said it is a build business model. Only about 10% of the 6 million+ dōTERRA customers are actively doing the biz. There is a lot of opportunity.

As you begin your doTERRA® business, it can be hard to figure out how the compensation plan works. There is no real substitute for having your upline or another dōTERRA mentor explain it to you, but to help, we have compiled this commissions frequently asked questions page, here.
