Have you tried all the other home based businesses, like Avon, Nutrimetics, or Tupperware? What about online businesses or affiliate marketing, like Amazon or Clickbank?
Personally, I found products from businesses like Avon and Tupperware to be difficult to sell. Why? Because their product line is always changing. They both have their base products but each month or campaign there are new products added that you need to try and sell. Now this wouldn’t be so bad if they actually had these products in stock, but if you are new your orders get filled last so I found that I would always miss out and then had to explain to my customers that they would not be getting the products that they wanted. This was also very embarrassing.
Another issue, especially with Tupperware, was the size of the products. Bagging up my customers’ orders and then having to deliver them would sometimes turn into a mammoth task when there were huge Tupperware containers to lug in and out of the car, and then carry to each customer’s house.
Also, the commissions with some of these companies is not always that great, especially when you were always having to purchase brochures, books, promotional booklets, flyers, samples, delivery bags, etc… plus having to purchase some of the actual products so you could show your customers. With Amazon, most of the commissions were only 5%. With Avon you earn about 20-35%, but only after your order reaches $75. Tupperware’s commissions are about 25-40%. And Nutrimetics’ commissions around 20-45%, but only after your order reaches $50.
This is just not good enough when you are required to put in a lot of effort to find customers and then try and keep them ordering from you. With bulky products and product lines forever changing these companies can be difficult to work for.
So I decided to look for a company that not only had a great and unique product, but also one of the best commission levels and compensation plans. And it helped that I was wanting to try LipSense anyway as I was sick and tired of needing to re-apply my lippy every time I drank or ate something. LipSense is made by a company called SeneGence, who are based in California with warehouses also in Australia and Canada.
If you sign up as a distributor you can purchase LipSense and any of their other waterproof makeup at 20-50% off retail, which is amazing. And you can just purchase for yourself or sell to others, it’s up to you, there are no minimums or targets to meet. But the best thing is that most of their products are only the size of a small tube of lip colour. Even their eye shadows and blushes come in small tubes. That makes it really easy to carry the products around and you can even mail orders to your customers for just a few dollars.
There is so much about this company that is great, it’s one of the most generous and highest paying that I’ve ever found. Oh, and guess what? If you don’t like their products or even just want a different colour LipSense, they offer a 100% guarantee. And even better, if you sign up as a distributor and later decide that it isn’t for you, they offer a 100% guarantee on that too. What other company offers that? Like I said, they are just amazing.
