Can you really make money selling Scentsy?

  • Dave Ramsey - ScentsyIs Scentsy a Legit Business Opportunity?
  • Can I Really make money selling Scentsy?

Well of course I’m going to tell you that Scentsy is a great work at home business opportunity – however, it really is. I will also add that I do make money with Scentsy. Before you decide to go solo, check out what it really means to be a solo entrepreneur!

Join Scentsy

We are currently available in 11 Countries: USA, Austria, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Mexico, New Zealand, Spain and the United Kingdom.

I’ve don’t think I have ever come across a consultant, who is no longer with Scentsy, who has thought is was a scam, pyramid scheme, a waste of their money, etc. They are usually no longer consultant because it may not have been the right time {many come back and re-join for Free, Ask me how) or they chose not to anything with their business. Such things as – not letting anyone know they had a business, pass out samples or catalogs, have never had a single party, etc. Sometimes they just didn’t realize that they had to work their business like a business. They are still customers and love their Scentsy Warmers and Scents Bars.

What makes a “Legit” business opportunity?

Truly when you think about it the Legit part comes from your own experience, doesn’t it? Take, for example, other opportunities. Every opportunity has successful people in it as well as those that are unsuccessful. I mean, if you’ve paid $149 to join a Direct Sales business opportunity with another company and didn’t get training from your Upline; had to pay for auto-ship products in order to keep your contract; had steep sales and/or recruiting requirements; had to go to meetings all the time; dealt with saturation and dislike for the product, etc. would you feel good about representing it? The only saving grace of this would be managing to get some merchant funding or the like from L3 Funding or other firms to help keep you going whilst you find your feet. Some people can turn this around into a great success after this, but if you only had the negative side of this kind of experience then you probably felt like you were “scammed”. When someone has a good experience with a Direct Sales Opportunity then they defend it right?

There are a few reasons why I think that Scentsy doesn’t have a bad rap:

  1. The price to Join is $99 ($119 in Canada). It’s not a lot and, while you do get a lot of business supplies in your kit, the cost of the Products you get in your kit are valued at more than $150! So, even if you don’t “work” your business, you have already received a huge value!
  2. There are No auto-ship requirements or personal monthly purchase quotas to stay active. Basically, you don’t need to buy a stock of products to be successful. In fact, keeping it simple and just bringing what comes in your Start-up Kit to your Parties can be even better! While you do need to sell $150 in a single month during any 3 month period, ANYONE who is working their business very part-time can meet this goal.
  3. Monthly website fee of $10 a month ($12 Canada) – and ONLY if you want a site! There are many consultants who choose to not have a Scentsy website. You don’t need one to have parties however, no one can buy from you online when you do have parties and you cannot Recruit / build a team without a website as this is the only way anyone can Join! You can enter all of your party orders via your back office workstation which is free. I personally think that $10 a month is a very worthwhile fee to pay.
  4. It’s just candles! I mean, who doesn’t know what candles are? Who wants to take a vitamin supplement from someone they just met? How about adult toys – how do you approach someone about that? Special drinks, jewelry, kitchenware, etc. Everyone has a candle! Everyone knows what a candle is! No one will turn down taking a free sample of our Scented Wax! You can share with everyone in the entire family. Scentsy – Men, Women and Children. Granted, we have many products that are “Scent” or “Fragrance” related however, the core of our company is Wax and Warmers.
  5. It’s Safe. No flames! Also, have you ever wondered – where does the wax go? With traditional candles the wax evaporates – as does the scent. Where does it all go? Into the air we breathe! With Scentsy, only the scent evaporates, not the wax, so we aren’t breathing in toxic chemicals.

How do you Make Money with Scentsy?

Lots of ways! You can pick what parts of the business you like, are good at, how much time you want to spend on your business, etc. I make money from marketing online which drives customers to my website to Buy Scentsy and Join our Team. I send out and do many Basket Parties for customers and others wanting to get some free and discounted products. I build and train a team of consultants! Truly, this is where most of our money is made.

There are some Consultants like doing Fairs and Shows (4% of all Scentsy business). I have done Bazaars and Girls Night Out (GNO’s) at peoples homes with multiple vendors which is a fun way to network while selling your on hand products or taking orders. Doing Fairs and Shows can cost more initially because you usually need to “show or sell” a lot more product on hand.

I also like doing Scentsy Fundraisers. While you give your commissions away for a good cause, you do get to give back (which I love) and you can use the Hostess Rewards for the Fundraiser participants or keep them for yourself to gain a stock that you can sell, lend out or use for your personal use.

Of course, you can also party until the cows come home, however when you recruit, you are going to make small overrides off of what each of your downline sells. Think like a Real Estate Broker from California. They could just sell houses themselves and make a large commission on each home or they can bring on a bunch of Realtors, have them work and sell homes and then take your small cut from each of their sales. This adds up to way more money in the Brokers pocket and they have more time to do what they want to do. They can always sell houses in california themselves too. They’d be silly not to, however growing a team under them is how to build Wealth!

With Scentsy, I am also given the ability to work from home, which I love! Because of this, I can make my living throughout the day, while also carrying out general tasks throughout the home simultaneously. For anyone looking to work from home, I would advise them to turn their home into an office of sorts, or else you will not get as much work done as you would hope. You might also want to check out the ways in which you can save money in the home. One way you can do this is by switching your energy provider. By switching energy provider, you could save yourself hundreds every year. You can click here for more information on how to save money on energy in your home.

*Remember, any business has general business expenses so please make sure to set aside a % of your Commissions each month to put back into your business for supplies, marketing, etc.

Return on Your Investment

Just having one average party of $400-600 will pay you back the cost of joining Scentsy in commissions – Really! Most people make money hosting Scentsy Parties. This is where 90% of all Scentsy business comes from. Party, Party, Party! If you are thinking about joining Scentsy then you need to have at least one party – your Grand Opening party that is! My goal is to always have our consultants make their initial investment back right away.

Also, take into consideration how much money you and your friends spend on Candles each year. You can save a ton of money just by Joining Scentsy. You can use a single warmer for the entire year (and much longer) and just scrape out wax from each of your 80+ Party Testers that come in your starter kit.
