How To Become a Farmasi Makeup Consultant (Bloggers & Influencers)

How To Become a Farmasi Makeup Consultant (Bloggers & Influencers)

If it seems like everywhere you look lately you see a Farmasi Beauty Influencer touting the awesomeness of the makeup brand, you’re not alone. You might also be wondering how to become a Farmasi Makeup Consultant yourself. If so, great! In this post we’re going to talk about all things Farmasi.

Here’s a quick overview of what we’ll cover:

    • What is Farmasi?
    • How to Make Money as a Farmasi Makeup Consultant
    • Is Farmasi an Affiliate Program or an MLM?
    • Farmasi Perks & Benefits
    • Why I Joined Farmasi (and who I am!)
    • What is in the Farmasi Starter Kit?
    • What are Farmasi Product Packs?
    • How to Sign Up as a Farmasi Beauty Influencer

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:

MARY KAY

This company seems like its been around forever, and you can see that their Momentum peaked back in 2004.

marykay market trend

MONAT

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.

monat market trend

ARBONNE

Arbonne is one of my personal faves product-wise. You can see Momentum somewhere around 2006, and then Stabilization going forward.

arbonne market trend

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

how to make money 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

how to sign up as a farmasi beauty consultant

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:

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.

You’re now officially a Farmasi Makeup Consultant and can start using your referral link right away to earn commissions! Woot woot!

Be sure to look out for my welcome email after you sign up that has “10 Ways to Make Money With Farmasi in Your First Week”)

Hey & Welcome! Here’s What’s Next.

Once you’ve signed up, I’ll get a notification and will get in touch with you (email) with information to get you started as soon as possible. You’ll also get access to our training videos, tutorials and support groups right away.

Welcome! I’m super excited to work with you and help you crush it as a Farmasi Makeup Consultant 👊.

Wait! Can I Ask You A Question?

If you read this far and are still on the fence about becoming a Farmasi Makeup Consultant, would you please complete this sentence for me (in the comments or send me an email)?

“I’d sign up to become a Farmasi Beauty Influencer, BUT…”

I really want to help as many people as possible with this opportunity and the answer to this question will help me better understand your fears and hesitations.

Leave a comment below or send me an email at hi@smartmomblogger.com and we’ll chat! I’m also happy to answer any questions you have 🙂

87 Best “Consumable Product” Network Marketing Companies for Moms

87 Best “Consumable Product” Network Marketing Companies for Moms

IMPORTANT: If you want to learn how I’m growing my own network marketing business ONLINE and getting leads from the internet (instead of constantly hounding my friends and family), you should grab this free “Attraction Marketing Bootcamp”.

If you’re looking to make money from home or start your own home-based business, Network Marketing is a fantabulous option.

(Super quick side note: Network Marketing businesses are also sometimes referred to as “Multi Level Marketing”, “Direct Sales Business”, “MLM” or “Social Marketing Business”.)

And as much as I’m obsessed with Blogging and Affiliate Marketing to make money from home, Network Marketing has nudged its way in as one of my favorite “side hustle” ideas for busy moms.

Here’s my quick story on why I started a Network Marketing business.

Here are just a few reasons why:

  • Work on your own schedule, as much or as little as you want
  • Low start-up costs (most are under $100 to start)
  • Get “on the job” training in marketing and business while you earn
  • Start making money right away
  • Time leveraged business model (no more trading hours for dollars)
  • Become surrounded by a community of ambitious people that elevate your life
  • No cap on earning potential (make as much as you want)
  • The ability to make a real impact on others’ lives through training and mentorship

There are SO MANY more advantages and life benefits to owning a network marketing business, and as I write this quick list above it makes me realize that I need to write a whole blog post on it (“Why Every Busy Mom NEEDS To Start a Network Marketing Business”… working title ;)).

Okay, that’s a post for another day. If you’re reading this I’m going to assume you already WANT to start a Network Marketing business, or are at least curious and interested, so I’ll move on to the good stuff!

I’ve combed through a BUNCH of different companies (hundreds!) and compiled this list of what I feel to be the 87 absolute best network marketing companies for moms. (I also made a downloadable PDF for you so you can reference it anytime… just sign up to get it for free below 🙂

I chose the below as the “best Network Marketing Companies” for 2 reasons:

1. Consumable Product Line

If you’re starting a product-based business, you want a consumable product line. All this means is that once someone runs out of something, they’re going to need to buy more. These are things like skin care, nutrition, and cosmetics (as opposed to things like jewelry, handbags or kitchenware).

If you start a consumable product network marketing business, you will earn residual income as people continually re-order more products month after month. In my opinion, this is really the only way to go if you’re looking to get the most profit out of the time you put in to your business.

I’d also highly recommend choosing a company that gives you your own website that people can purchase products directly from so you don’t have to carry any inventory. Most forward-thinking network marketing companies are operated this way these days, so this shouldn’t be hard to find.

2. Relevant Product Line

Since 99% of my readers are moms (not an actual statistic, but probably spot on), the network marketing companies I chose are ones with products that I feel most moms would be interested in.

For example, skin care, essential oils, food-based products, nutrition, and health and wellness as opposed to body-building supplements or legal services. Not that there aren’t some moms that are in to that stuff (cooler moms than me for sure), but I tried to keep it generally applicable to the majority of moms.

And even with that said, a few made it on to the list that aren’t particularly “mom-ish” but that looked too cool to leave off (like a Jerky company and a Pet products company). Okay, let’s jump in!

How To Make Money As An Arbonne Consultant

How To Make Money As An Arbonne Consultant

Pssst… Have You Heard?! We created a private Facebook Group, Flourish Forward, where we do Arbonne giveaways, sales and promos, and share health & beauty tips, tricks and resources! >>> Come join the fun!

I was curious about the Arbonne business opportunity and how to become an Arbonne consultant to make money from home, and this is a great post! It covers how to start, how you get paid, and how to run your business without pestering your friends and family. I LOVE this approach SO MUCH!

Are you a busy mama who wants to be able to start a home-based business in the nooks and crannies of your day to make money from home?

Then joining Arbonne as an Independent Consultant is a great option! You can start with literally ZERO experience and start making money from home within your first month.

How? Simply put, the moment you start your Arbonne business you have an entire team of positive, successful people with a vested interest in seeing you succeed as fast as possible. If you start to see success early on, the momentum will carry you on and fuel your continued business growth. You can build your business offline (traditional way) or online (internet marketing, blogging & social media).

With a consumable product line that’s in high demand, it’s easy to make sales without being “salesy”. (Take special note of the word “consumable” in that last sentence… we’ll talk about how important that is in just a minute.)

But first, I wanted to share a bit with you about my journey and the reason I decided to write this post. Ever since I became a consultant myself, I get a TON of questions about the business and how to get started!

The truth is, I started my Arbonne “business” simply because I really admired the women who first told me about it. I had been using the botanically-based products myself for about 6 months, but I was already really busy as a stay-at-home-mom of 4 young kids (2 still in diapers) as well as running my own blog… I couldn’t fathom adding any more to my already crazy schedule! But they assured me that this was the kind of business that I could fit into the “nooks and crannies” of my day, so I decided to give it a go.

Plus, I was at a place in my life where I was actively pursuing personal development, and I knew that one of the best ways to increase my own success was to surround myself with ambitious, successful people.

(Blogging is great for that too, but can get pretty lonely behind a computer screen! Arbonne gave me real-life friends that I am so so SO grateful for ❤).

My intention was to just do the business casually to earn a side income and I wasn’t really thinking about pursuing the business in a serious way. But once I jumped in I was immediately was surrounded by an army of positive, supportive, ambitious go-getters and I saw how simple it was to go big if I had the right mindset. I was completely inspired to action!

Should I Become an Arbonne Consultant?

So you know why I became an Arbonne consultant, but you may be wondering if it’s right for you and some of the benefits. Here are a few key points for you to consider when making your decision:

  • You don’t need to carry ANY inventory. You get your own website that people can buy directly from.
  • You can start making a profit in your first month if you have the right guidance (see below)
  • It’s a consumable product line. This means the products in the Arbonne line are things people already use in their day-to-day life and will NEED again and again (this is business 101 and SO important for effortless ongoing sales)!
  • It’s a GLOBAL business operating in 7 different countries. This means that even when you’re sleeping, people in Australia can be buying from your website.
  • You get built-in business training and support from your sponsor so you’re not wasting time or “guessing” at how to grow your business
  • Personal growth and friends! It can be really hard to make friends if you’re a stay-at-home-mom or a mom who’s busy working outside the home. Arbonne is a short-cut to making deep friendships with people who will lift you up, encourage you and support you (this is the #1 reason I joined).
  • You can truly fit it into the little pockets of time in your day (how much time do you spend scrolling Facebook or watching TV? Be honest! You can start building your business during that time instead.)
  • You can earn lots of FREE stuff like products, cars and vacations (no joke)
  • It’s only $49 to get started! You can start your own business for half the cost of your Amazon Prime membership.

My first month as a consultant I was already in qualification to get my first promotion without being salesy or spamming my friends or family! (I’m following this training to grow my business mostly online. If you want to start this journey with me and join my team, see below).

How to Make Money With Arbonne

As an Arbonne consultant, you make money in two ways:

1. Through your own direct sales

2. Additional commissions through your team

Here is a bit of information about Arbonne’s generous compensation plan:

It costs $49 to become an Arbonne Independent Consultant ($30 annual renewal). There are no monthly fees, inventory requirements or hidden start up costs.

You automatically get 35% – 50% off all product, plus a revenue kick-back once you reach the first level of management since you’re ordering from your own personal online store! You can become a consultant just to purchase product for yourself and get your kick-back, which is a great option if you’re already in love with the products and want to get the best deal.

OR you can sign up with the mindset to start your own business and make money from home! The income potential is HUGE (this takes work and is not promised to everyone… your income is determined on how you work your business).

Sooo, on to the elephant in the room: HOW do you make sales in your first month (and beyond!) without being salesy, spamming your social media, or harassing your friends and family?!

Believe it or not, it can be pretty easy if you just have the right guidance! To set up the systems for growing your business online, it’s probably going to take at least 90 days, but will be largely automated sales after that! If you want to start making money right away while you’re setting up your online systems, here are a few ways to start earning money in your first month:

  • Invite your real neighbors over for a “business warming” party (be excited!). Share the amazing Arbonne products and opportunity with them and give them an incentive (free product) to host a demo in their home. This is the FASTEST and EASIEST way to make massive sales your first month in your business (and a great way to get to know your neighbors). Your sponsor – me if you join my team 😉 – will hold your hand through the entire process.
  • Share your personal story on Facebook, Instagram and/or email. Let people know WHY you decided to start your business and/or HOW the products have helped you. Be specific! This is different than begging people to buy from you or randomly direct messaging people you haven’t talked to in years! Instead, you are simply sharing a part of your life journey and asking for encouragement. (You don’t need to hide the fact that you’re starting a business… be proud!) This is how I made my first 2 big sales when I started!
  • Start a Facebook Page or Group that discusses the benefits of the product and tips related to health, wellness and beauty and let people know about it. This way you are always sharing updates and info with people who actually want to hear about it.
  • Deliver product sample baggies to any group of people in your circle (kids soccer team parents, play date meet-ups, MOPS group, parents at school pick-up, co-workers, etc.). You can upgrade your Arbonne business start-up with a bunch of samples for just $49 extra if you want to use this strategy.
  • Decide on a group of people you’d like to serve with the products and business (moms, busy college students, young professionals, etc.) and start a blog about topics that can help them. Include health, wellness and beauty tips that naturally link to the products in your store. Automated sales, sister! Of course, it will take more than a month to grow your blog, but you can set the wheels in motion from day one.

I share tons more tips like this with the peeps on my team, as well as personal guidance for how to implement everything. I share step-by-step training for growing your business offline or online so you can choose which way suits you best (or mix ’em up). I’d love to have you on my team if you feel like we’d be a good fit for each other! If so, just follow the steps below to get signed up and start selling in 5 minutes!:

How to Become an Arbonne Consultant

Step #1:

  • Go to my website and click the green button that says “Start Earning” (you should see my picture  and name – Candis Hidalgo – at the top of the page, but if not just enter my consultant ID to make sure you get on  my team (#24360472). You’ll enter your email address and personal details in the next few steps.

    Start here to sign up as an Arbonne Independent Consultant

  • The sign up process will take you through a few more steps, then ask you to choose a start-up order. You aren’t required to purchase any products to start your business! All you need is the “New Independent Consultant Registration” ($49), which comes with information on how to get your business started. If you’d like to set yourself up strong for doing demos regularly (which can be very profitable), then it’s a good idea to choose one of the Value Packs at this time. But again, that is totally optional. Finalize your sign up by clicking through the next steps.

    Just $49 to start your business. Other value packs are optional!

Step #2:

I’ll get an email from Arbonne that you joined my team and I will help you get started!
