Hello Pink MLM Review

Hey there sea changers, and welcome back to my series of MLM reviews. Today we are going to a take another look into the very popular fashion side of the network marketing industry with my Hello Pink MLM Review. The online sale of clothing can be extremely lucrative with many making a good living selling items via online stores and affiliate marketing. Added to this obviously is the array of clothing based multi level marketing programs that are available. So, what is Hello Pink all about? Let’s have a look and find out…

What is MLM?

Multi-level marketing (MLM) programs are the traditional mainstay of the ‘party plan’ world of products such as Tupperware, Mary Kay and Amway etc. and, of course within the beauty/cosmetics, supplements and essential oils markets. It is not as prevalent within the clothing industry but as MLMs have become more popular in recent times – mainly due to the fact that much of the sales and marketing is now being managed online – companies in other niches are starting to get in on the action.

The ‘multi level’ aspects of MLM come from its hierarchical nature in which you make commissions based not only on those that you sell to, but also the sales of those whom you ‘sign’ into membership arrangements as well.

In short, the process works as follows:

  1. You join the program, either via referral from another person (known as your up line) or directly through their website.
  2. You promote the products of the company via parties, workshops or online.
  3. As you make sales, you offer incentives to your customers to sign up as a member of the program (there are different names for this but they all mean the same thing).
  4. That new member is then placed ‘underneath’ you in a hierarchical arrangement (known as your down line).
  5. You, and a number of levels of your up line, then gain extra commissions for everything they sell as well.
  6. If they manage to refer their customers into memberships, they also become a member of your down line allowing you to make up line commissions as well.

The number of levels of your up and down lines will vary depending on the program you have joined. Commission rates will also change as your down line grows or contracts and many will also offer other incentives such as total company sales percentages and/or access to membership prizes as your own business grows.

Who are Hello Pink?

Item costs appear to fall into the low to medium price range of around $20 to $80 per piece keeping them in line with competitors such as Peach and Lularoe.

MLM Program outline

The Hello Pink MLM program calls their members ‘Stylists’ who are part of what appears to be a simple program with a common retail and downline commission structure only. Their compensation plan is located on their website so here are the basics as I have found them…

Base Commission rate: 20% to 25%

Stylist Discount: 25%

Down line commission rates: 3 – 13% to 3 levels (level 1 down line is 9% – rank Associate and above)

Minimum monthly spend to qualify for commissions

To qualify for downline commissions, Stylists are required to meet monthly Personal sales (PSV) targets of at least $100 per month with group sales (GSV) totals of $150 (this includes PSV as well). PSV can be made of personal or customer sales. Base 20% – 25% sales commissions however can be earned without the need to meet or maintain sales targets.

Payment terms: Weekly.

Application required?: Yes, Application form on website.

Purchase requirements to join: Yes

New stylists who wish to become eligible for downline commissions will need to purchase a Back Office accounts with access to the Back Office Suite for $6.99 per month(or $4.50 per month when paid upfront for a year). This includes:

Hello Pink Review - start kit

Ongoing seasonal collection purchases are not mandatory however the documentation does highlight discounts of 25% for the purchase of samples for use within trunk parties or pop up events.

Marketing materials provided: As per starter kit above.

Within most MLM programs, rankings and commissions are determined by the total personal sales volume (PSV) generated by the Stylist and their down line within a calendar month with points assigned to each product. These point allocations can range from 50 to 100% of the retail price of each product (before tax and shipping) and vary from item to item and currency of sale.

In the case of the Hello Pink MLM program, it appears that PV is calculated at 100% of the USD retail sales price minus tax and shipping.

How can I get paid?

Ok, so from what I can garner from the compensation plan, there are just 2 ways in which Stylists can make money when they promote and sell Hello Pink items. These are very straight forward however there are none of the extra bonuses found in many other MLM arrangements. The 2 payment options for the Hello Pink MLM program are outlined as follows:

1. Retail Bonus

These are the base commissions earned by the general day to day retail sales that Stylists can generate via parties, popups, social media or online via their personalized website. There are two tiers of personal commissions based on sale volume as follows:

  • 20% – 0 – 499GSV
  • 25% – 500GSV and above.

As above, to qualify for the base 20% retail commissions, Stylists do not need to meet sales targets. For the higher commissions however, members of the stylists downline are placed into legs which are limited to 50% contribution per leg to the GSV targets. See graphic below.

2. Team Bonus

The Team Bonus is Hello Pink’s version of the traditional unilevel commission structures prevalent within many MLM programs. Within the Hello Pink MLM program, commissions are paid to 3 levels based on the rank of the Stylist as follows:

Hello Pink Review - Team Bonus

Stylists must be at rank of Associate and above to qualify for the Team Bonus.

Ranking structure

Hello Pink, as with most MLM programs, uses ranking structures on which to base commission payments on. Rankings for the Hello Pink MLM program are as follows (note personal and team sales qualification targets as well):

Hello Pink Review - Ranks

Again, as is common with almost all MLM programs, rank progression is determined by both the number of members within the Stylist’s down line, and the total sales made by those members per month. Ranks can rise and fall based on the ability (or dis-ability) to reach the required member and sales targets.

What is good about it?

So, after a good look around the site and looking at all the options I could find, I do like the following:

  • Commission rates for entry level sales are good.
  • Program is simple and easy to follow.
  • Commissions can be earned without the need to meet sales targets

What is no so good about it?

There are also some things to be aware of including:

  • There are some minimal joining costs.
  • Not as many bonus options as many other fashion based MLM programs.

How much can you make?

Hello Pink does not provide an income disclosure statement on its website however as with most MLM programs, it has to be assumed from the compensation plan that the percentage of members making the upper rank levels – and hence earning a living – is very low (usually less than 1%).

My final thoughts

Look, MLM is not an easy platform to make money in and there is not much that I have seen here to put this program above the many others I have seen. However, the program is pretty straight forward with common commission arrangements and the ability to make sales online or via the party plan model. So if you are an absolute fashion nut with a large customer list at your disposal and the ability to generate good sales via online processes, then the 20 – 25% base commission rates might just appeal here.

Once you have joined, there are not the usual financial pressures of needing to make minimum personal purchases in order to qualify for commissions as long as you can make them within your down line. You may also need to bump up your personal purchase quota if customer sales alone are not enough for you to remain at rank and qualify for commissions and/or discounts within a particular month.

I was unable to locate any negative reviews in terms of non-payment etc. although there were some negative comments (not as many as most others however) about the quality of customer service and the MLM program itself – although it was not really anything that is uncommon in regards to MLM programs or products within this niche.

Then I decided to help fund my new sea change with some affiliate marketing.  I joined Wealthy Affiliate, and as they say, the rest is history.

Note: This is an unbiased review as I am not a member of the any of the programs listed here (and hence make no commissions from any of the links included within this post). The reason for this is that I prefer to write these posts based on what a newbie would be seeing if they were interested in joining – that way I feel I can make a better judgment on what it is that these companies are offering within their programs.
