What is the key to making money with Arbonne? Building a successful and profitable Arbonne business isn’t much different than building a successful regular business. In order to succeed, you need to build a large customer base of people who buy and consume the products.
This includes wholesale buyers, distributors, and retail customers. After all, you get paid to generate sales volume in your sales organization. You ultimately get paid a percentage of the total sales volume of your group. The more sales you generate, and the more sales your team generates, the more money you will make.
In the paragraphs below, I’m going to share a few of my favorite tips about how to make money with Arbonne. Let’s get started.
1. Personal Use: You should use the Arbonne products frequently so you are familiar with them. This will help build your belief in the products and give you a good story to share with others. You will also learn the features and benefits of each product, which gives you detailed product knowledge.
2. Develop Good Prospecting Skills: Leads are the lifeblood of your Arbonne business. You must learn how to prospect. You can do this online by visiting blogs, forums and chat-rooms. Or, you can talk with strangers, use sizzle cards, send out direct mail, or advertise in the newspaper. The key to success is to find one strategy that you enjoy and then take massive action.
3. Find New Customers Each Week: You must constantly find new customers for your Arbonne business each week. At a minimum, find one new customer each week who will order the products at the retail cost, or sign up as a wholesale buyer/distributor and purchase products at the wholesale cost. This will help build momentum in your team. Remember, customers are the lifeblood of your business.
4. Follow Up With Customers: The money is in the follow-up. You should build a database of customers, distributors and prospects, and follow up with them often. At a minimum, you could send a monthly newsletter to all your prospects, customers, and team members. This will help generate more sales and referrals.
5. Treat Your Customers Like Gold: Always provide outstanding customer service to your Arbonne customers. Let your customers know that you appreciate them. Go the extra mile. Give them a reason to keep doing business with you or they will take their business elsewhere. Send them thank you cards, give them phone calls and stay in touch often.
6. Help Your Downline Distributors: If you are building a downline team of distributors in your Arbonne business, help them succeed. Train them. Motivate them. Create a simple system they can follow to build their own team. Get involved and match their efforts. Don’t build their business for them, but work with the people who are willing to do the work.
7. Treat Your Business Like a Real Business: Treat your Arbonne business as if you had a million dollars invested in it. The more seriously you treat it, the better you will do. Even if you can only work your business a few hours a week, be disciplined and do this every week. This means you need to schedule time and keep your business a top priority. Don’t put it on the back burner. Remember this, part-time effort equals part-time income and full-time effort equals full-time income.
8. Make a 5-Year Commitment: The # 1 reason people fail with Arbonne and direct selling companies is because they quit. Most people will quit within 60-90 days after they join Arbonne. Most folks have unrealistic expectations about what it takes to succeed as an entrepreneur. I believe that you must commit to your Arbonne business for minimum five years, maybe even ten years. If you can’t do that, you shouldn’t start an Arbonne business to begin with. Just be a customer instead. I say this because you will only be fooling yourself. Regardless of what type of business you start, it will more than likely take a couple years just to break even or make a small profit, and probably 5-10 years to be real profitable.
In summary, these are my best eight tips on how to make money with Arbonne. Please know that making money with Arbonne is simple, but it isn’t easy. It requires a game-plan, discipline, hard work, some capital investment, and perseverance over a period of a few years. I truly believe that if you stick with it, and take the time to develop the required skills and mind-set you need to succeed, you will reap the reward and succeed with making money with Arbonne. I wish you all the best!
