The video below gives a more in depth explanation of the compensation plan:
Scentsy Pros and Cons
Do Scentsy consultants make money?
According to Scentsy's latest income disclosure, the average yearly commission received by consultants who were with Scentsy for the entire 12 months (Group 1 below) was only £1.933.
Unfortunately, this is what happens with most MLMs, as consultants do not get the appropriate training and as a result, they fail to succeed.
I shall be talking more about training at the end of this post 🙂
Is Scentsy legit?
Scentsy is a legitimate company that is also well-known when it comes to the type of products they sell.
Scenty's Facebook page currently shows a rating of 4.4 out of 5 based on the opinion of 1,730 people:
From my research, it looks like most of the bad reviews have been left by people who have tried to sell Scentsy but did not succeed.
Again, I am 100% sure this was mostly due to the bad training that these consultants had received.
Is Scentsy a Pyramid Scheme?
First of all, let's look at what a Pyramid Scheme is:
"A pyramid scheme is a business model that recruits members via a promise of payments or services for enrolling others into the scheme, rather than supplying investments or sale of products." - Wikipedia
As Scentsy consultants make money both by recruiting other team members AND by selling products to customers, it is safe to say that Scentsy is not a Pyramid Scheme!
Can you make money selling Scentsy?
MLMs tend to get a bad reputation because generally people struggle to make money with them.
This is because of leaders that insist in "training" their team members to sell products via social medias by bombarding family and friends.
Here is the thing... You cannot rely on friends and family to make a full time income as a consultant!
You need to find a way to reach those people who are actually looking to buy what you can offer.
There are two popular ways to do this:
- Set up paid adverts that target a specific audience within your niche
- Find a way to generate free organic traffic that can be turned into sales
The first option is very expensive and if you are just starting out, then I recommend you scrap that for now.
The second one is completely doable and inexpensive, in fact, you can even get the right tools and information for FREE.
