In this post I am taking a look at another home business opportunity it is doTerra Business Opportunity,
doTERRA was founded in 2008, with the purpose of sharing the highest quality essential oils with the world.
Having satisfied their purpose they decided they needed a team made up of people dedicated to hard work, commitment, passion, and vision, and the business opportunity was started.
What is doTerra
Healthcare and Business.
DoTerra offers an herbal alternative to health and wellness through the powers of essential oils…
This company also has many healthcare and hospital professionals on their board, and this is allowing the continued experiment with these essential oils, expanding on their knowledge of all the benefits of these oils.
doTerra is a multi-level-marketing (MLM) company DoTerra headquarters are based in Utah, selling essential oils and personal care products via the MLM platform.
Essential oils This includes citrus blends and oils to help you to breathe and sleep better
Personal care This includes skin, hair, and body care.
Supplements This includes Weight management, Digestive and Children vitamins
To join the doTerra business is as simple as signing up online. Purchase a membership, and buy yourself a kit, and you’re ready to go. It’s that easy.
As A Wellness Advocate, you can engage in all the monthly training, social activities, and any other events that will keep you informed about the company updates, etc.
Your yearly membership as a Wellness Advocate will cost you $35.00, and that allows you the privilege of purchasing products at a 25% discount off RRP (recommended retail price). Also, it will be necessary for you to buy a kit to get started.
How Does it Work
Becoming a Wellness Advocate is as simple as opening your oils and sharing with others how doTERRA can bless their lives. Using your doTERRA Essentials book and your kit of oils, you can begin sharing.

But as with all MLM, the emphasis is in the recruiting, you have to recruit to make any money.
Your ability to recruit a downline determines your success, for a couple of reasons.
You’ll earn a residual income.
And help your chances of progressing up the hierarchy levels.
As a Wellness Advocate you will also be expected to help and train new members within your team, and in your time as well as reaching monthly sales targets for your required personal sales.
Once your team begins to develop and are making sales, then you will earn a passive income and bonuses through the varied doTerra compensation-plan system. And that will ultimately get you ranked to higher levels within the organization.
Is doTerra Legitimate
Yes do Terra is legitimate it is registered with the BBB but has no rating
The reality is that doTERRA, like all multilevel marketing businesses, has a simple mathematical flaw: Only the top 1% will ever earn anything more than minimum wage, and even then, hard work is no guarantee that you’ll get into the top 1%.
What doTERRA sellers actually earn
The Federal Trade Commission requires MLMs to disclose how much their members earn selling products to others. How the MLM decides to disclose this information is largely up to the company, however, resulting in highly misleading presentations about how much you can earn peddling products to friends and family.
I’m picking on doTERRA today because its income disclosure statement is especially egregious. It highlights how much its “advocates” earn in a table available on its website.
Taken at face value, the doTERRA income disclosure statement paints a rather rosy picture where even its lowest-earning advocates (Silver rank) are pocketing more than $27,500 per year, the equivalent to about $13.75 per hour for a full-time worker. Roughly 1 in 6 sellers, based on the table, achieve a rank in which the average earnings top $100,000 per year.
But the smaller print in the same disclosure reveals the realities that doTERRA and other MLMs would prefer kept hidden: The table only includes the most elite group of doTERRA advocates — those who are in the top 1% based on their ability to sell the product, and more importantly, sell others on the dream of selling its products.
When the top 1% earn $28,000 per year
Getting in the top 1% of doTERRA is no easy feat. Achieving “Silver” rank, for instance, requires recruiting at least three other people who personally sell — or recruit people who sell — at least $3,000 in product per month.
So if you recruit three people who each sell $500 of product per month, and each of your recruits more people who sell $2,500 of the product combined per month, you’ll make it to Silver, putting you into the top 1% of the organization. At a minimum, this requires at least $9,000 in “organizational” volume from the people you recruit, though few will reach this rank with exactly $9,000 in monthly volume.
Upon reaching Silver, you’ll be in the top 1% of doTERRA advocates. At this level, the average earnings among advocates are $27,557. Nowhere else does being in the top 1% yield so little. The top 1% of American individual earners hauled in about $308,000 in 2016, yet the top 1% of doTERRA reps earn barely more than a recently hired, full-time Target-store worker.
Who is doTerra Business For
Someone who has the ability to Constant Recruit New Members, be able to sell at least $100 per month.
I know that essential oils are the in-thing today but as for the benefits of using them, I am not sure, as I have not used them myself.
But I found this website from an article published by Finance Guy.net, the supplement police found that doTERRA oils were pure and high quality.
And also another site by essential oil haven confirmed that doTERRA is producing quality oils. They did go on to mention that doTERRA products are no different from the high quality pure essential oils made by their competitors.
I have also tried a couple of MLM companies to try and make some extra money but it cost more than I ever made because I had to buy products in order to meet my PV so I would remain active.
In my opinion affiliate marketing is a better choice, you have nothing to sell, you do not need to buy anything to remain active, you do not need to recruit anyone.
