Living the LimeLife – The Right Way to do Network Marketing

39245813_1831719516881124_6505004063174688768_nI’d like to address some common themes that come up in conversations when people ask me about the LimeLife business. My hope is to clarify and bring understanding where it is new to Canada. There seem to be a lot of misconceptions and unknowns, which I would like to dispel.

First of all, you need to know that LimeLife is unlike any other direct sales company. I’ve had experience with many, and I’ve seen this firsthand. We do NOT allow “kit-napping”, we do NOT offer routine sales or discounted bundles, and we do NOT frequently roll out limited edition items (only for holiday collections). We don’t offer sales constantly in hopes you’ll buy because of the sale this month and fall in love, just like we don’t want you buying it thinking it’s not setting you back much if you don’t like it. We are so confident you’ll love it because it is the best of the best in this industry EVERY month. We want you buying our products because you see their value, you see the affordable pricing for that value, and when you try it you’ll be wondering why you waited so long to get it. That said, we do have a 30 day return and exchange policy… it’s just not used much…

You may not realize it, but offering sales constantly does you a disservice. You either wait for a sale and run out of products you need, or maybe you see a sale and break the bank trying to stock up. We prefer to keep our prices as low as possible every day despite the top notch quality that they bring to make it more affordable for everyone. We do this while keeping prices comparable to other retail brands in our industry, but with superior quality in many cases.

This isn’t a new direct sales business trying to build a brand. This is a professional cosmetics and skincare company that has existed for decades in the professional beauty industry, that is only now being brought to the general consumer through the direct sales model. The proof is in the pudding guys, just look at the beautiful women that have allowed me to give them makeovers to display the power of these products.

In addition, we do NOT allow anything that can negatively impact the LimeLife (and by extension, Alcone) brand. This includes no cold messaging to prospect, no adding people to Facebook groups without their consent, no harassing or begging people for sales, etc. Unlike many companies, these rules are routinely enforced. That said, we have such an abundance of phenomenal training at our fingertips (literally something new Every. Single. Day) that it rarely gets to the point of needing to be enforced.

We’re taught the right way to do business in this industry, and that is critical today with the amount of people totally shut off to network marketing because of all the people out there doing the wrong things. I say that with love and without judgment, because I used to be them. Without proper training, we can all be them. I’m so grateful for everything I’ve had the opportunity to learn since I joined this company because it has truly helped me grow as a business woman, and as a person.

This company and the culture is truly spectacular, and we have a better way. If this sounds like something you would enjoy, please reach out to me. I would love to chat with you, with zero expectations, and simply answer any questions that you may have. Let’s see if living the LimeLife could be what you’ve been searching for <3

So you want a business opportunity that is free?

Much like anyone else in the network marketing business, I am a member of multiple groups to network with other people in the industry and those looking to become a member of the industry. Within these groups, I see countless posts on a regular basis of people seeking business opportunities with no starter costs. If you are one of those people – this is for you.

If you have been searching for anything free, chances are you can’t find a business opportunity that is free because that is not the way that the world works. Network marketing is NOT a get rich quick scheme. Network marketing is a legitimate business opportunity, and essentially you are your own CEO. Obviously all companies are a little bit different in how they do things, but for the most part, you are paying a fee to start that covers a kit full of products, training, website fees, etc.

Think of it this way. If you wanted to start your own store locally, you wouldn’t be able to just do it for free. There are start up costs, and a whole lot more that way too. Network marketing gives you the opportunity to have your own company without all of the hassle of producing the product and shipping it out.  You can’t expect companies to give you the world. The products that come in those kits are super discounted already (at least with my company, LimeLife) , so you can’t expect to be handed them for free. Not to mention that initial fee also covers your training online, it usually covers a personalized website, you get a LimeLife credit card for your commission, and more.

Another common theme among people that make these posts is to say “well I would rather join for free and not get the starter kit”. That is available with LimeLight as well, but I am sorry, that option just makes no sense if you want to get your business off to a good start from the beginning! Having a start up kit is essential to a new business so that you can use the products and accurately represent them to your customers. You need to have experience with the products and be knowledgeable about the products if you are going to sell them successfully. People are going to ask you what you think of certain products and expect you to be able to give them an honest answer. They won’t appreciate you saying “well, I don’t know actually because I have never tried any of the products”. Right then and there you will lose all credibility with that potential customer, and that is bad for your business.

If you are just joining a company for the sake of joining a company and making money, I have to be honest, don’t bother. People can tell when you are genuinely passionate about a product or if you are just trying to push it, and they will gravitate to those they can tell truly care about the product. People want to buy from people that they can trust, and with whom they have formed a relationship. If you’re all about the sale and you place little value on the customer experience, you’re not going to get far in this industry.

Now I know that if you’re struggling and you don’t have a lot of money it can be difficult to make that investment, which is why some of the people making those posts are seeking something free to join. However, if you are serious about wanting a business opportunity that you love and creating a life of financial freedom, you’ll make the effort to save up bit by bit until you can pay for your kit. Even just a couple of dollars here and there will add up.

Just remember that with any network marketing business, you need to put in what you want to get back out of it. If you are not willing to make an investment into your business, then that is a choice that you are making, and it is something you are going to have to learn to live with. I don’t believe in sugar coating the truth to get people to join my team because I feel like people need to know the truth about network marketing prior to joining. It is important that you know what you can expect from this industry and what it will take to be successful, because it simply may not be for you.

It’s not for everyone, and that is perfectly okay.
