doTerra Review

Doterra is a multi level marketing company based in utah.This mlm company focuses on selling essential oil.

The word dottera is derived from latin word ‘gifted from god’.

This mlm company was launched back in 2008.

So,you can say that this is not some new mlm company who is going to scam you for money.Stay with me,we will talk about each and every aspect of doterra.

Let me tell you an interesting information I came across when searching about doterra.

I am recently reviewing lots of multi level marketing/network marketing companies like kannaway,bellame and isagenix.

So,before writing any review I like to see it’s trend on google.

Whether the company is progressing or getting people’s attention or not?This will also give you a hint whether this mlm is saturated or not.

Good news is that during my research I came to know that doTerra is getting insane success.

It’s trend on Google is growing day by day.

People are finding this mlm interesting.And that is the reason,this mlm makes it in the top 10 mlm multi level marketing companies which I reviewed.

Doterra’s main and biggest competitor in the network marketing industry is kannaway.

Now,both mlm companies are successful and copy each other.

I am not saying that copying others is a bad thing or it’s a crime.I want to let you know one fact about doTerra.

doTerra was founded by David Stirling with former executives,employees and other people in Kannaway.

This means that they have a good experience in this industry and just to add in this,kannaway was launched back in 1993.

Is doTerra A Pyramid Scheme?

No,doterra is not a pyramid scheme.It is a multi level marketing.

Which also sells physical products to people,and those products help them get better health and life.

Or maybe not?

We can say network marketing company a pyramid scheme when the only way for you to make money is by recruiting others.

Not with doTerra.Instead you are selling a product that is going to give some kind of transition to your friends and family members.Or customers.

doTerra is not a pyramid scheme but it is an outright pyramid scheme.Why?Because it has some features involved in the pyramid scheme.

Now,most of the people when hear about mlms,they without giving it a second thought connect it with the pyramid scheme.

There is a reason behind it.It is because they focus on recruiting others and make money from it.

Another fact about doTerra is that only the top 1% people make money from it.

This is because they have downline and you are in that downline.Most of the people saying it a ponzi scheme,it is not ponzi neither pyramid scheme.Let’s talk about success rate in the company.

Success Rate At doTerra

We are going to talk about the doterra compensation plan and it’s product line too,but before this let’s talk about this important factor.

You may not know that  I reviewed almost 300+ mlm companies.

In all of them,most of the time,almost 99.9% times people when sharing their experience say that they end up losing their money. It is very common in mlms.

Most of the studies show that failure ratio in multi level marketing companies is anywhere from 73 to 99%.

This means that on average 85 people out of 100,who try to make money from multi level marketing companies,end up losing their own money.Nothing different with doTerra.

Most of the people who try to make money from doTerra end up losing their money.It is really common with this mlm.

But the company is still successful and getting popular day by day.Why?We will talk about it later.

Before this all,I want you to stick with me.

Here is my logic for you.Why most of the people that join doTerra fail?

Well,the answer is very simple,this is because they do not know how to sell,also they are completely new to marketing.

Chances are that you are a newbie and did not join mlms or thought to join before this one.

Sometimes they try really hard to sell doterra to their friends and family and succeed in it.Because most of the time,your friends and family members buy it just to get you off their back.

Now let’s talk about their product line in detail.

doTerra Product Line

There are various products that this mlm offers people.More product means more options to their distributors and more money to them.

doTerra marketed as essential oils multi level marketing company ,this means that it is their flagship product too.

Their main product is essential oil but they expanded their product line to include weight loss,personal care and supplements in it.

So,let me tell you and give you an idea of some of their products.Here are some of their main products.

  • Essential Oils – Include proprietary oils and single oils.
  • doTerra on guard series – Hand wash products,sanitizers etc.
  • doTerra Breathe Series – Product that is going to help you in your breathing and respiratory system.
  • DigestZen – Essential oils and supplement for people who have stomach problems.
  • Personal care products – Products included to tighten your skin and help you look fresher and beautiful.
  • Weight loss – Shakes which can replace your meals,other products that will help you in weight loss.I have reviewed a weight loss mlm company called Plexus.

Other products are also included in it but I do not want to make this article lengthy and make you feel bored.

doTerra claims that their products are certified pure therapeutic grade.

However, studies showed that therapeutic grade has zero to none relation with essential oils.Proof.

They also claims that their product are #1 and are best in essential oil niche,compared to other essential oil companies like kannaway,young living and others.

Nothing new,every mlm claims that their products are best in the market.

No new with doTerra.Instead when selling their products to others,they make the same claims.You may be thinking my take on these products?

So,I spent fair time reading its reviews on different platforms like BBB and others and I did not reach any final verdict on that.

This is because there are so many mixed reviews on the internet about doterra.

Some are saying that this is the best ever product that we bought and recommend you to buy it.

They can be doTerra distributors and trying to make money from it.

By recruiting you.

While others have very bad experiences with it.

I think the best way to know whether these products are worth the money or not is to buy them personally.

How To Make Money With doTerra?

Now,like other mlms there are two ways for you to make money with doterra.

1 – First one is to sell doTerra products to others and make retail commissions on it.

The commission on the product will be fixed by the company itself.

2 – Second way to make money with doTerra is by recruiting people into this mlm.

The more downline and people they recruit,the more money they are going to make.

Cost to join doterra is $100.This is a very reasonable cost in my opinion compared to other mlms I reviewed like Bellame,Norwex and Ariix.

They were charging in $1000s.Iin this $100, doTerra includes many things in it too.

To make this mlm company even better and maintain legitimacy of this mlm company.

They make their distributors buy their products first before they start pushing it to others.

Means that doTerra distributors need to spend $100 every month to purchase their products and stay in this mlm.

This means that for start making money with doTerra you need to invest $35+$100=$135 first month,and $100 every single month.

FIRST YEAR COST IS MORE THEN $2000.But do you know that not even a single person end up making $2000 on their first year?Yup,mlm sucks.

doTerra Compensation Plan

doTerra compensation plan is very straight forward.Not like traditional MLMs where they make their compensation plan so complicated to understand.

Most of the time people make money from them and do not know where it came from.

There are four main ways that you can make money from doTerra.Let’s talk about them?

1 – Retail commissions – You will make 25% commissions on every sale you bring to them.Very straight forward.

Retail commission means the commissions that you are going to make when selling their products.

2 – Fast start bonus – This is a fast start bonus,as clear from the name.

Within the first 60 days if you succeed to recruit first 3 levels of downline.The commissions that you are going to make on it are(Level 1:20%,Level 2:10%,Level 3:5%)

3 – Power of three bonus – You will get this bonus when any of your downline achieves fast start bonus.Bonus prize in this is $50,$500 and $1500.

4 – Residual commissions – Now this is because most of the people are saying doterra is a pyramid scheme.

Because in this you have to recruit people and earn downline commissions on it.In this you will get more commissions if you make 7 level downlines.

I mean that their commissions are going to increase on each level of downlines you recruit.

Here is another video which explain it very well.

Now let’s talk about things which I liked in doTerra and things which don’t.

What I Liked In doTerra

Low success rate doesn’t mean that this company has not had any positive things.

There are many things that I liked in doTerra.Let’s talk about them one by one.

Getting Famous and In my top 10 mlms

doTerra is a very famous mlm company that is getting popular day by day.It’s trend on google is increasing day by day.Becoming in top 10 mlm list is not a joke.

This is telling the growth of this mlm company.

I have reviewed over 300 mlm companies and this is still in the top 10.Also it’s google trend is increasing day by.Now there can be two things which we can pick from this.

First one is that the company is reliable and it will not scam you by any means.

It is not a ponzi or pyramid scheme too.Because if it was,it would be banned 12 years ago.

Second take away is that this mlm is getting saturated day by day.

What this means is that most of the people who are going to join this multi level marketing company will face competition.

It will be easy for you if you are an experienced marketer,if not you will definitely have trouble in many aspects.

For me personally,if mlm is the only way to make money,I will go with other options.

Other options which are less saturated.

Every other person seems to be joining doTerra.Why?Because of their outstanding compensation plan.

But the only question is how many of them are making money?

Anyhow,this mlm company is winning by a very large and fair margin when it comes to battling against their competitors.

Like I said there are many mlm companies who focus on selling essential oils to people like Arbonne,kannaway and plexus.

And essential oil is also a very saturated niche too.Every other day,there launches a new mlm.

Remain in the topic and staying related is something that I want to congratulate doTerra for.

BBB Accredited

It has got A+ BBB rating.Which is also a plus point too.

Now we talked about good things,let’s talk about the things which I did not like in doTerra.

Things Which I Did Not Liked in doTerra

Now,let’s talk about the things which I disliked in doTerra.

Lying while marketing

While marketing they tell people lie.Not just them,whoever that joins this mlm,they brainwashed them.

For example when you tell them that you have side effects after using doTerra products,their distributors say that it usually happens.

Now the company claims that they can cure ebola and other diseases.That’s why they got a warning letter from FDA in 2014.This means that it is in the FDA hit list.

Low Earning Potential

Most of the people who join mlms like doTerra end up losing their all money.

This is because the stats and studies showed that almost 99% people that join mlm lose their money.

So,the chances for you to end up losing your money is 99 out of 100.

Why they have so low earning potential?

Well there is a solid reason behind this.Which is that most of the people that join mlm are beginners and they do not have an existing list that they can promote their products to.

‘Results in reaching out to friends and family members.And they get in NFZ stands for ‘no friend zone’.

Another big fact is that their earning potential is very low.Most of the people are earning very less with doTerra.If you want to go and check doTerra average income disclosure then go there.

Now you can see that 62% people are making annual $27,557.Wow this is great,but wait,let me tell you the facts.

This means that this amount of money is made by leaders.And for real,only 1% end up reaching that level.

This is the first time I read a very misleading review of any mlm after reviewing 300+ mlm companies.

Is doTerra A Scam?

No ,doTerra is not a scam.It is legit multi level marketing company in my opinion.

As I said earlier that I can not give you my final verdict about their products,you can check them yourself by buying them.

I want to talk about the fact whether you can make money from doTerra or not.

For this here is my answer..

Yes,you can make money from doTerra,Lots of people make money with doTerra too.

Also someone may come to you and say that he is making millions and millions with doTerra.But the truth is that he wants you to be in his downline.

Now, I personally do not want to recommend doTerra to my audience.

There is a big reason behind it.The reason is the chances of you making money by it.

Very hard and low success rate.

Why go for mlms when there are much better and scalable business models there?In which you do not have to recruit anyone and disturb your relatives every known and then.

No monthly fees or face to face selling..

The only person who makes money in mlms are their owners.You are c0mpany’s best customers,whenever you lose money ,company will make money.Simple is that.

Mlms are destined for failures,Mlm = waste of money and time.

Also,another fact is that only one out of 5 mlms last more then 5 years.Forget about building a long term business here.

Here is a better business model.Generating leads for small business owners and charging each of them $1000 for your services.

You will only need one paying client to make $1000 a month,which seems to be impossible in mlm companies.

Now,here is the logic,let’s say that you generated a lead for a denstist and he closed and made $1000 on it.He will be more then happy to pay you $100 on that single lead.

Now,let’s say that you generates 100 leads for that denstist every single day,this means $30k/month for you.Which is not very difficult.

Most of our students are making $100k/month.
