Here’s my video overview of Farmasi, then scroll down to read the blog post for all the nitty-gritty details:
What is Farmasi?
Farmasi is a makeup, beauty and personal care brand that quite literally exploded into the U.S. market earlier this year (scroll down to the Google Trends graphs below to see what I mean). The company is already established in over 100 countries around the world, but just launched in the U.S. and is taking the beauty industry by storm with its luxury makeup sold at bargain prices.
If you’re and influencer on Instagram or YouTube AND/OR a beauty or style blogger looking for an affiliate program that pays high commissions, then you need to take a serious look at Farmasi. If you’re NOT an influencer, Farmasi can still be an awesome opportunity for you to make money from home. We’ll go into all of that below!
Fun Fact: “Farmasi Makeup Consultant” is the same thing as Farmasi Beauty Influencer, Farmasi Seller, Farmasi Distributor, etc. It’s like 🍅to-MAY-to, 🍅to-MAH-to.
I’m currently taking a business course related to blogging and direct sales and in it learned that there are 4 different stages that most direct sales companies go through: Formulation, Concentration, Momentum and Stabilization. The best time to sign up with a company is when it’s in Momentum.
Farmasi is in Momentum… BIG TIME.
For context, here are a few examples of direct sales companies that have previously hit Momentum and are now in Stabilization:
This company seems like its been around forever, and you can see that their Momentum peaked back in 2004.
Monat is a hair care company that just launched a few years ago, had a massive Momentum spike, and seems to have entered the Stabilization phase in early 2018.
Arbonne is one of my personal faves product-wise. You can see Momentum somewhere around 2006, and then Stabilization going forward.
Farmasi is a Makeup Brand in Momentum
Now by contrast from the graphs above, take a look at the Google Trends results for Farmasi:
Crazy, right?! When I first saw the growth trend on this company, MY.MIND.WAS.BLOWN 🤯.
I’m not a huge makeup girl, but I AM a blogger and entrepreneur so when I saw this opportunity (AND found an incredibly strong upline/training mentorship for support), I knew I had to take it seriously and sign up as a Farmasi Makeup Consultant myself.
If you’re ready now, you can start your application to become a Farmasi Influencer right here.
Quick caveat: I am NOT saying that companies in Stabilization are not good opportunities… they totally can be, especially if you have a great upline! But what I AM saying, is that if you sign up with a direct sales company near the beginning of their Momentum phase, you stand to make A LOT of money. As my fellow mom blogger, McKinzie Bean of Moms Make Cents, says, “Momentum is where the millionaires are made!”
Ok, so it’s clear that Farmasi is in a serious growth phase, but what does that mean for YOU as a blogger, social media influencer, or mama looking for extra income? What are the perks and benefits? How can you actually succeed as a Farmasi Beauty Influencer? And how much money can you actually make?
How To Make Money as a Farmasi Beauty Influencer
Since Farmasi takes a modern approach to Direct Sales, it works much more like an affiliate program that pays super high commissions (and that also has additional perks). Here are the basic two ways to make money as a Farmasi Makeup Consultant:
Method #1: Use Farmasi as an Affiliate Program to Make 50% Commissions
If you’re a blogger or social media influencer, you’re probably already familiar with affiliate marketing. If not, it’s simple! Basically, affiliate marketing is where you share about products you love and earn a commission of any sales received through your unique link or referral code.
When you sign up as a Farmasi Consultant you get a personalized link that you can share in emails, text messages, Facebook posts, blog posts, Pinterest, Instagram, YouTube, etc. If anyone makes a purchase through your link, you receive a whopping 50% commission on the sale! (For example, if someone purchases a Lipstick for $12, you automatically earn $6).
Method #2: Leverage Farmasi as an MLM to Grow Passive Income (Affiliate Marketing on Steroids)
If you’re interested in scaling your income up even more, you can leverage Farmasi as an MLM (Multi Level Marketing). This is where you share the income opportunity with others and get them to sign up as a Beauty Influencer with you. When you do this, you not only earn a commission on your own personal sales, but also earn a smaller commission on all the sales of the Farmasi Consultants that signed up on your “team”.
This is similar to a “tiered affiliate program”, like Ultimate Bundles or ClickFunnels (they pay you additional commissions for any sales that come through affiliates you referred).
And honestly you guys, this is where the income potential really starts to skyrocket. You can also earn additional cash bonuses, vacations, cars and more.
So, Is Farmasi an Affiliate Program or an MLM?
The short answer is: It depends how you use it.
Part of the beauty of the Farmasi makeup brand opportunity is that you can leverage it however you want!
Want to sign up as a Beauty Influencer just to get luxury makeup at 50% off or earn a bit of easy side-hustle cash? Go for it, smart lady.
Want to sign up and use Farmasi strategically as an affiliate program on your blog to earn 50% commission? Who wouldn’t?! 50% is a crazy high commission rate for any affiliate program.
Want to become a Farmasi Consultant to get the discount, earn commissions AND leverage your time by building a team of Farmasi Beauty Influencers to scale your passive income? Girrrl, go get it! (This last option is how you leverage the Farmasi MLM business model)
Really, you can sign up for whatever perks and benefits you want. You do you! Speaking of perks…
Farmasi Makeup Consultant Perks & Benefits
Here are a few details about the Farmasi Influencer program, including commission amount, bonuses, discounts, perks, sign up cost, product details and more:
- You make 50% commission on all personal sales through your personal link
- You can refer other influencers and earn a commission on their sales too
- You earn commissions on your referred customers forever (not just the first sale)
- You only have to sell one thing every 6 months to stay active (unlike other affiliate programs that kick you out if you don’t make sales)
- Opportunity to earn cash bonuses, trips, car allowance and more (these can be earned when you build a team)
- The products are cruelty-free, meet European standards, and most are vegan (they’re an easy sell)
Let’s go into a bit more detail…
50% Commission + 50% Product Discount… FOREVER
Once you sign up as a Farmasi Beauty Influencer you immediately get 50% off all products (Starter Product Packs are discounted even further – more on that below) as well as 50% commissions on any products people buy through your link. If you’re a blogger then you probably know how rare a 50% commission structure is, especially on physical products! Even on digital products like ebooks and courses, commissions most commonly top out at 40%, so Farmasi is incredibly generous to its consultants.
The real kicker? You earn these commissions FOREVER, not just on the first sale. This is passive income at its finest, and is super rare for affiliate programs!
You Don’t Have to Stock Any Inventory
This one’s a biggie for me. With many direct sales companies, you have to carry a ton of inventory of your products for in-home demos and parties. But who wants to do that?! I remember signing up as a consultant for Mary Kay as a teenager and had to stock a gazillion makeup samples and products for home parties. It was a pain!
I don’t know about you, but for me, as a busy mom of 4 who’s already trying to minimize the clutter, the LAST thing I need is more “stuff” around the house. With Farmasi, all sales happen online through your personal website and products are shipped straight to your customers. Easy-peasy.
Farmasi Products Are Clean & High-Quality
Quick cosmetics industry lesson:
- The European Union bans over 1,300 toxic chemicals from cosmetics and personal care products
- By contrast, the Unites States FDA restricts just 11 harmful ingredients 😱
Um, kinda scary, right?
Even though Farmasi launched in the U.S. this year, they still adhere to European Standards (which is like getting the Gold Seal of Approval for safety and high-quality). Since Farmasi makeup is clean AND high quality, their products have been blowing up among beauty influencers on social media.
Farmasi Products are Surprisingly Affordable
With all this talk about how premium Farmasi products are, there’s got to be a premium price tag attached, right? Surprisingly, no! When I first saw how low their prices were, I messaged my upline and was like, “Ummm, are these the REAL prices?”.
Check out the prices and products for yourself right here.
To me, this is another thing that makes Farmasi so unique since most direct sales companies have a reputation for super-high prices.
Not only are the Farmasi prices inexpensive at retail, but remember, when you sign up as a Farmasi Makeup Consultant you get 50% additional discount.
Super-Low Sign Up Fee
Typically when you sign up as a distributor with a direct sales company, there is a sign up fee which covers the cost of your welcome kit as well as some marketing material and samples, and usually ranges from around $50 – $100 or more.
When you sign up as a Farmasi Makeup Consultant, you pay just a one-time fee 19.99 (most companies make you renew annually – not the case with Farmasi).
You have the option to add on Product Packs – sets of products at an even deeper discount to start your business strong – but that’s completely optional.
Why I Joined Farmasi
I’m a stay-at-home-mom of four young kids and I’ve also been working from home since my first son was born. I started by working for my sister’s online startup company, doing blogging, online marketing, customer service and public relations. When you work for a small startup, you wear a lot of hats 😉
It wasn’t long before I ventured off on my own, started a blog and learned the ins and outs of affiliate marketing. I also started to learn about Direct Sales and its unique business model that allows you to make passive income unlike anything else. AND, the more I researched it, the more I realized how similar it is to affiliate marketing, which I already loved!
I’ve dabbled in other Direct Sales companies, leveraging my blog to make commissions and earn passive income through growing a team.
When I heard about the Farmasi opportunity from a trusted blogger friend, researched the timing and Momentum it was in, and saw the generous Compensation Plan, I couldn’t refuse and signed up that same day! I’m super excited to grow with this brand.
You can sign up as a Farmasi rep right here if you want to jump in with me. We’ll lock arms and do this thang together! (Be choosy about who you sign up under! More on that below).
How To Become a Farmasi Makeup Consultant
Step 1: Click the “Beauty Influencer” Option
Head to Farmasius.com and click the “Choose” button in the “Beauty Influencer” box.
Step 2: Fill In Your Deets & Confirm Your Sponsor (I’m #0125099)
Next, you’ll fill in your personal deets.
If you’d like personal training from me and our team, make sure to confirm that I’m your sponsor (Candis Hidalgo, #0125099). Here’s why it’s important to choose the right person to sign up with:
Another thing I’m learning in this direct sales/blogging course is that it’s important to choose a great upline sponsor when you sign up with a company. Your upline can make or break your success!
On our team, you will have exclusive access to trainings on how to grow your sales and passive income with blogging, social media, attraction marketing, Instagram, YouTube, Facebook, email marketing and much more. No need to spam your friends 😉
And if all that seems overwhelming to you, our team also has Direct Sales professionals who have been working in the industry for over 20 years and an help you with offline methods as well. In short, our team rocks!
Step 3: Choose Your Farmasi Starter Kit and Product Pack
As mentioned above, it costs just $19.99 (+ shipping) to sign up, which covers the cost of your Starter Kit.
But what is a Farmasi Starter Kit, anyway? Basically, it’s a cute little box full of marketing material, catalogs and product samples to get you going.
If desired, you can also add on a Product Pack which are discounted even deeper than your normal 50%. The Farmasi Product Packs are priced at $49, $125, and $200, and can ONLY be purchased at the time of sign up. I recommend you purchase one of these packs if you plan to do personal reviews of the products, unboxing posts or videos, want to share your Farmasi journey and experience via social media or blogging or basically just want to try all of the Nordtrom-quality products at Walmart prices 😉.
Again, this is optional, and if you are on a tight budget you can forego the Product Packs entirely. (If you need help deciding which Product Pack you should get, just drop a comment below or email me and we can chat about it).
Next, just continue to the shipping and payment page to complete your order.
