Can A Distributor/consultant Make Money With Thirty One Gifts?
According to Thirty one gifts compensation plan, there are two ways of making money:
1. From Product Sales
This is through the company’s catalogues or your website. The retail commission is 25%.
Retailing is suitable for those people who just want to make a small amount of money.
It is not easy to make a full-time income from Thirty One Gifts using this method unless you have a lot of customers. This also applies to most MLMs
2. Building A Team.
The more you recruit, the larger your team/downline will become and the more money you will make (depending on whether they are active in the Thirty One business or not).
Cons Of Selling Thirty One Gifts
1. They are not consumables. This can limit the number of repeat customer and the frequency at which the repeat customers purchase from you.
Let’s be honest, how often do you buy bags?
If you as the distributor want to maintain your earnings, you have to be continuously be on the lookout for more customers and more people to recruit.
Whatever you do, there is a very high likelihood that some of your downline will drop out and the more they drop out, the more your income will go down.
2. Their main target is women.
The company Started as a religious based business with the mission of empowering women. The name originated from the bible: Proverbs 31 that speaks about the quality of women’s work both inside and outside the home.
Although it currently caters for both men and women, religious and non-religious, most of the distributors and customers are women.
3. Getting people to recruit is not easy
Immediately you join, you are advised to try to sell and recruit your friends and family.
Although this sounds very good, it becomes messy when your friends or families join as you would be competing for the same group of people and can sometimes end up in broken relationships
4. Maintaining a rank is not easy
There are certain requirements needed to maintain a rank as well as to move up the rank.
One of the requirements is in connection with your own personal purchases. This might make the distributors to purchase products that they do not necessarily need and can lead them to having debt on their credit cards
