All this can come depending on how much or little you want to work the business. Many of my team members are working part-time and already doing reasonably well.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

Compensations Methodology

Most Multi-Level Marketing (MLM) compensation system have imbalanced incentivisation models or breaking points of which greatly influence how their products/services are promoted and what type of consultants they attract. These models often leads to high pressure sales and sign-up tactics because aggressive consultants are rewarded significantly by rapidly growing shallow organizations. To give some perspective the industry average retention rate of MLM organizations is 15%, as the majority of new consultants at the end of their first commitment period drop out as their required purchasing volume has not yet been out pace by their sales compensation.

dōTERRA has gone a long way into mitigate breaking points and consultant’s ability and desire to “gaming” their compensation system by provided creative incentives at each development stage and title levels. It’s clear that they want to retain individuals, create engaged teams, and enable deep organizational growth. We’ll step through each of these in detail.
