How to Make Money Selling doTERRA Online [Easier Method]

How to Make Money Selling doTERRA online.

It’s true that you can sell just about anything online now, including essential oils. If you’re looking to find out how to make money selling doTERRA online, then you’re in luck because I’m going to give you the break down of exactly how it’s done.

I was personally a part of an essential oils MLM recently, and I understand how the system works. Most of the selling is done in a couple of ways:

  • home parties (or classes)
  • Facebook classes

And you’re also encouraged to make lists of everyone you know and contact them in some way or another. Maybe through Facebook messenger, by sending postcards, calling them or face-to-face meetings. (I had a book where I was supposed to write anyone I ever came in contact with. Ever.)

I don’t know about you, but this is one aspect of the business that was tough for me. I’m not a sales-y person, and I don’t really like bothering my friends and family.

But what if you could learn how to sell doTERRA online in such a way that you wouldn’t have to:

  • message strangers out of the blue
  • convince your friends and family that this is the perfect opportunity for them
  • have parties
  • hold classes

What if, instead, you could attract the right customers to you?


Let me show you.

How Much Money Can You Make Selling doTERRA?

First, let’s talk about how much money you can make by selling doTERRA. I know that the biggest reason you probably want to sell doTERRA is because it’s a good opportunity to make a lot of money (potentially).

Here’s how much people from Silver on up average in a year (this is doTERRA’s earnings chart from 2016):

Even at the Silver level, an extra $27,557 a year is pretty enticing. However, this table is misleading because it only represents 0.5% of all their members!

That means almost no one makes money selling doTERRA.


What if you could learn to sell in a different way than the traditional methods?

How to Sell doTERRA – The Standard Methods

doTERRA’s official website has some selling tips, but if you read them, they’re very general. It says things like:

  • Share how important the products are to you
  • Tell people how essential oils can fill a need
  • Ask people what they look for in natural products
  • Keep following up with people and see if they have a specific need

I know when I was in my MLM, I was asked to:

  • Ask my friends and family if they wanted oils (annoying)
  • Try to get to know people on Facebook and then message them asking them if they wanted oils (super annoying)
  • Post pictures of essential oils and how you use them on your Facebook or Instagram feeds (annoying for anyone not interested in oils)
  • Ask friends and family to host “classes” (parties) for you (you spend more in wine and food than you get back)
  • Hold online classes (sheesh these were really complicated)

While I agree some of these methods can work sometimes, overall, it was not the best experience for everyone. And that’s part of the reason why MLMs get such a bad rap.

Not only that, but the people at the top were working so much and so hard it almost didn’t seem worth it!

Now, here’s my solution. Learn how to make money selling doTERRA online…but in a different way than bugging everyone on Facebook.

By the way, you can still use those traditional methods if you want. Some people are really good at them. But learning how to sell online can be much more efficient.

Attract Customers to YOU

Instead of going out and trying to beat customers over the head and drag them to you (OK, that’s a little dramatic, but you know what I mean), why not just attract them to you instead?

There are people out there looking for essential oils and looking for opportunities to work from home.

You could set up a website that has content about these topics. People who are searching for these topics will find your site (if done properly) and you can provide them with all kinds of information right on your site.

How do you know who’s looking for what? Let me tell you about it.

Use Keyword Research

When people go to Google, Bing or Yahoo, they type something in that they want to know about. They are using keywords. You can do research to determine what people are searching for around your topic (and how many are searching).

While it sounds complicated, it’s actually really easy once you get the hang of it. when you know what people are looking for, you can provide solutions for them.

For instance:

Maybe someone is looking for work for home opportunities. You can provide a solution by telling them about doTERRA and how they can make money with the business.

Maybe someone is looking for chemical-free ways to clean. You can provide them a solution by telling them about the different products they could use.

Hint: Many people are looking for essential oil reviews.

training program online can teach you how to uncover the right keywords that will bring people to YOU.

Putting It All Together

You may already have a website that came with your doTERRA business, and that’s fine to have. But what you’ll want to do is start a new website where you can provide helpful information and solutions to the people who are looking for it.

(From there, you can link over to your doTERRA site where they can order.)

Does it sound hard? I assure you it’s not once you understand the steps. It may sound tricky if this is new to you, but if you go through step-by-step training, all the pieces will fit together and you will understand how it all works. My top recommended training will take you through all the steps, and you can get started in no time!

Besides training, we have a community of people willing to share their knowledge and help you every step of the way. We have quite a few people who are involved in MLMs and understand how to use their website to help sell their products and opportunities.

  1. Excellent info and I agree that having a blog/website is the best way to sell doTerra or any MLM product/service really. The amount of work and effort people put into trying to cold-call, cold-message and what not; Could be put into creating content for their own site and eventually potential customers will go to them instead of the other way around. 

    • Yes cold-calling and cold-messaging is just so tough. I could never do it which is part of the reason why I went to affiliate marketing instead. But learning how to use keywords and build a website just seems so much easier as a way to promote doTERRA. 

      From there you could build an email list, create information products that doTERRA customers could use and even brand yourself as an expert in a certain part of the doTERRA business. So many ways to go with this!
