Have you started thinking about getting into the network marketing world? There are many companies that you could choose and you want to choose one that fits you. It should be a company you can get excited about and one that helps you succeed. I have been with multiple network marketing companies over the years and, by far, the business I have enjoyed most is my Arbonne business.
Why an Arbonne Business?
Arbonne is a botanically based beauty, health and wellness company. From a product standpoint, they offer everything from skincare and makeup to personal care and nutrition products. All their products are built on a Swiss heritage with European standards. European standards are some of the most stringent in the world. They are never tested on animals and are formulated without a lot of the many questionable ingredients you find in other products like parabens, phthalates, mineral oil, etc. One of the best reasons their products work from a network marketing standpoint is that they are consumable. People use them and then they need to order more whereas other products, like jewelry or cookware, are not consumable and they may never need to order additional products.
From a company standpoint, I have found that Arbonne seems to really care about their consultants. They give you an immense amount of resources to help you succeed and they try to create a culture of encouragement and fun. I have truly loved just about every person I have met from Arbonne and have always felt supported and encouraged. That is why, after several years, I am still a part of this company. Everyone has their own experience and this has been mine.
Do some research and decide what company is best for you. If you decide that Arbonne is a company you would like to join, let me know! Below are a few things that can help get you started and ready for success.
Find an Arbonne Consultant (Me!)
The first step is to find a consultant to sign you up. In this case, it would be me. You can visit my page melaniegraddy.arbonne.com or send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. I can walk you through all the steps and send you all the materials you need to get started. I will also be here to support you, encourage you, and answer any questions you may have.
Sign Up to Get Your Arbonne Business Started
You can start your own business for as little as $49.00. This gets you access to all the materials you need to succeed. First, you will receive a product catalogue, success plan (this is the compensation plan), a Discover Arbonne Brochure so you can start sharing the opportunity with others, a Consultant Resource Guide, and a Healthy Living Inside & Out Brochure. In addition to these items that will be mailed to you, you will get access to everything online along with a personal Arbonne website. As you can see, this option does not come with any products but Arbonne wanted to offer a cheap, base option to allow those who were concerned about start-up costs to still start their business.
On top of this basic plan, you have a couple of options to add on to it to increase your success starting out. First, you can add a Share Arbonne Pack for $49.00. This pack includes several brochures, a catalogue, and samples to get help you share Arbonne with others. Second, you can add an Arbonne Special Value Pack (ASVP). These are specially priced (50% off) packs of different products. There is an RE9 Advanced (Anti-Aging Face) ASVP, an Arbonne Makeup ASVP, and an Arbonne Essentials (Nutrition) ASVP to choose from.
Know that starting an Arbonne business doesn’t have to cost a lot of money and you don’t ever have to store products in your home. A lot of people trade out their own products for Arbonne products for personal use and utilize the tote bags to let others borrow and try out products for a few days before returning them to you. All orders are done online and can be mailed directly to your customer.
Familiarize Yourself with the Materials and Website
After you get signed up, start familiarizing yourself with the website and materials. Take a look at the compensation plan to see what you need to do to get to the next level. Study the product lines and have some fun perusing The Source which contains a ton of information on just about anything you can think of related to this business. Get your personal website set up. I will be sending you a Getting Started Guide and some other information to help set you up for success. If you need help, we can meet up in person or over Skype to go over everything. I want you to feel ready to succeed.
Order Your Arbonne Business Cards
There is a great shop on the Arbonne website where you can order Arbonne branded materials like business cards. You do not have to use this site, but it is there and ready if you need it. Having a business card to hand out is important so you can quickly pass off your information. Sometimes you have a quick conversation with someone in a line or on the street and there is no time to write anything down.
Plug into the Arbonne Community
Get involved in the community. You will be invited to join our team’s Facebook page and there are a lot of local meetings that take place in most areas that you can join. We also do online meetings on occasion. Also, there is a section on the website where successful consultants have videos and recordings that are educational and inspirational. They are great for listening to in your car. These are all great learning tools.
Consider Attending the Annual Arbonne Business Conference
Every year around April or May, Arbonne has their annual Arbonne Business Conference. It is always in Las Vegas and lasts Thurs. to Sat. Most go the day before on Wednesday and leave Sunday. It is a lot of fun. There are a lot of breakout sessions for different topics, they recognize the award earners and promotions from the last year, and they announce and launch the new products that have been developed. Most teams put together their own small parties and dinners over the long weekend. It is a great time to get to know other consultants and take your business to the next level.
Get Out There and Make Your Business Thrive
Finally, you have to get out there and do it. Find ways to meet people and bring up your business. Throw a launch party, share the products, and keep your eye out for opportunities to talk about your business. It is all yours and you should be excited about it.
Keep in mind that, like any business, the success depends on what you put into it. Network marketing can be lucrative but legitimate companies are not get-rich-quick schemes. They take hard work and dedication. If you feel like this business could be for you, definitely reach out. I would be happy to send you some samples to try and answer any questions you might have.
