Arbonne International provides internal and external body care products based on botanical principles. Independent consultants distribute products through network marketing strategies. Consumers are able to obtain products by ordering through a consultant who obtains the products directly from the manufacturer. In turn, the profit that would otherwise go to the middleman now goes to the independent consultants and trainers, making it a great opportunity for self-employment.
Try the products. Attend an Arbonne consultation gathering (usually a party or small social event of some sort), try out the samples and purchase a couple of items to make sure you like the product yourself. You can't sell a product that you don't personally back.
Contact a local Arbonne consultant and ask her what it is like to work as an independent consultant for the company. Have her list the pros and cons for you. Be sure to find out how long she has been a consultant and how long it took her to successfully establish a clientele.
View the downloadable SuccessPlan Policies and Procedures Manual and peruse its information to make sure you are willing to adhere to these regulations as a consultant.
