13 Tea MLM Business Opportunities To Pour Into That Downline Pot

Hey there Sea Changers… Welcome to my post outlining 13 Tea MLM Business Opportunities that I have discovered in my research travels. Recently I have been looking into the world of Multi Level Marketing (a.k.a Network Marketing) to see if there are some online business opportunities there. And whilst I have been focused on the more traditional areas of this industry such as Essential Oils, Supplements and CBD Products, I have also noticed an increase in MLM Companies that are including tea as part of their stock portfolios. So, in order to make things a little easier for those of you interested in checking this out, I have created an outline below of some of the tea related MLM business opportunities I have found in my travels.

Now, before we start, most of these companies do not deal with tea alone, rather as a part of a larger range of offerings mainly around supplements, weight loss and/or a particular plant or science. All I have done here then is to include any site that has tea to sell as well. So for those who are looking to get into the MLM world based on their passion for these little dried leaves of goodness, let's get on with it and check them 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. These programs have become more popular in recent times – mainly due to the fact that much of the sales and marketing is now being managed online – with companies in other niches (such as tea) are starting to get in on the action.

Do You Need Help Turning Your Passion Into An Online Business?Let Me Show How I Built Two Websites That Earn Passive Income Using My 4 Step Formula

I joined Wealthy Affiliate 2 years ago with little knowledge of how it all works.

Now I have two websites up and running that are MAKING MONEY!

Click on the button below to see how I did it.

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.

How do they calculate commissions?

When it comes to the earning of money via MLM, most programs manage their downline commissions and rankings via the calculation of Personal Volume (PV) points (there are different definitions of this such as Commission, Business or Group Volume but they all mean the same thing). Most MLM programs manage it this way in that commissions are paid on the points assigned to a product rather than the entire sales total. For example, if a product retails for $100 and has a 50PV rating (these generally vary from product to product and on retail or wholesale prices) then the commission is calculated on the $50 purchase only. So if a commission rate for a product is 20% then it will generate a $10 payment to the sponsor (i.e. 20% of the $50 commissionable amount).

PV calculations can range from 1 point per $1 up to 1 per $1.50 or even $2. Obviously the closer to the dollar mark the calculation the better. In addition, most programs assign minimum PV sales per month – either personally or via customer sales – in order to qualify for commissions. Payments and rankings are then also calculated based on the total PV of the member, and their downline.

Ok, let’s have a look (in no particular order)…

Total Life Changes

Total Life Changes MLM Review - Opportunity

Information within the website in regards to this company is quite light on in that all I can find is Total Life Changes (TLC) is based in Amsterdam in the Netherlands. I quick search on YouTube however identified the founder as a couple of guys by the name of Jack and john (I couldn't clearly hear their last names) who started the company in 1999 with the plan to “change lives around the world”. At that time, they started with one product called Nutra Burst which has now expanded to the full array of products listed below and sold with a mission to “provide products and a community that you'll feel”.

Their product range is a little eclectic however on further inspection I would say that they are probably more of a health supplements company with some other ‘stuff' added on.

Their tea related input is admittedly restricted to a small IASO Tea range however the remainder of their category/product lists are as follows:

tea mlm - TLC Iaso Tea

The Total Life Changes MLM program calls their members ‘Life Changers' who are part of what appears to be a fairly straight forward and standard program with base commissions and a few bonuses thrown in for good measure.

It Works! is based in Bradenton, Florida in the United States.

As above, It Works! offers a large array of products in the weight loss niche based on a range or coffeeteas and other supplements. Their tea based options include:

  • Skinny Tea
  • Sleepy Tea
  • Keto Tea

As above, their focus on weightloss related programs also includes the following products starting with supplements:

  • Keto
  • Weight Control
  • Energy & Endurance
  • Vegan
  • Post Workout

Coffee

  • Keto Coffee
  • Keto Coffee Pods
  • Skinny Brew coffee

And as is common with many companies of this type, they also offer a decent range of beauty products as well such as:

  • Anti aging creams and serums
  • Daily facial care

The It Works! MLM program calls their members ‘Distributors' who are part of what appears to be fairly modern program aimed at building income via sales, team building and leadership levels. It incorporates a common retail and downline commission structure with a good number of bonus options included. I did not find their compensation plan on their website however it did pop up on a simple web search so here are the basics as I have found them…

Base Commission rate: 40%

Down line commission rates: 2 – 10% to 6 levels (level 1 down line is 10% for ‘Commission Qualified' distributors)

Minimum monthly spend to qualify for commissions

To qualify for sales and downline commissions, Distributors are required to become Commission Qualified via:

  • Processing a minimum 80BV Auto-shipment
  • Generate at least 400 Personal Business Volume per month

These can be generated via personal or customer purchases. Base retail commissions can be earned without being Commission Qualified.

Payment terms: Monthly.

Application required?: Yes, Application form on website.

Purchase requirements to join: Yes

Starter kits are purchased at time of enrollment for a cost of $99. Each kit includes:

  • 7 Digital Product Sample Mailer Credits (3 single-serve packets per Sample Mailer)
  • Personalized It Works! website
  • Access to eSuite for real-time reports, customer insights, and more
  • A promo code for 10% off It Works! apparel, accessories, or business tools
  • Access to tools and apps that allow Distributors to work from their phone anytime, anywhere
  • An all-digital starter kit that allows Distributors to start working from home immediately without waiting for anything in the mail!

Note: purchasing a starter kit qualifies a new Distributor as Commission Qualified for their first month.

I did see reference to a $20 monthly fee to cover the cost of a replicated website on other reviews but could not find reference to that on the It Works! website.

Marketing materials provided: As per starter kit above.

Sipology

Sipology was founded in 2007 by Tonia Jahshan on a premise that “a single cup of tea can change your life”. Since then, it has grown on the back of some angel investors and thousands of consultants across the USA and Canada to become “North Amerca's prestige tea brand”.

All products are certified organic and include:

  • No artificial flavor
  • No irradiated ingredients
  • No artificial colours
  • No harmful preservatives
  • No added sugar unless stated

The Sipology MLM program calls their members ‘Sipologists' who are part of what appears to be a simple program based on both the online and traditional party plan models. Unfortunately I was unable to locate their compensation plan on their website or via an online web search so I am completing the below based on what information is available on the sites of Sipologists – of course then please comment below if any of my information is inaccurate…

Base Commission rate: 25% to 35%

Down line commission rates: 3 – 5%

Minimum monthly spend to qualify for commissions

To qualify for downline commissions, Sipologists are required to meet monthly PV targets. This can be made of personal or customer sales. Base 25% sales commissions however can be earned without the need to meet or maintain sales targets.

Payment terms: Weekly/Monthly.

Application required?: Yes, Application form on website.

Purchase requirements to join: Yes

New Sipologists are required to purchase a Starter kits at a cost of $99.

Ongoing purchases are not mandatory however the website does highlight one of its main sales process as via tea tasting parties so it has to be assumed from that that some further purchases of samples may be required to ensure demonstration stock is available at all times.

Marketing materials provided: As per starter kit.

How to find your own MLM programs

The sites above have hopefully provided you with a good cross section in regards to what is available within the world of tea based MLM programs. That does not mean that you cannot find others that better suit what it is that you are trying to do within this space. Luckily for us, there is a simple way to find these programs online. All you need to do is enter “MLM: niche type” into your search engine (substituting ‘niche type‘ for whatever product it is that you are choosing to sell).

So to find possible MLM sites that offer supplement, or health and wellness based products, you can try “MLM: tea” within your search engine: In most cases, you will need to apply for the program before you are allowed to promote their products – This is generally not as regimented as many affiliate marketing programs however if asked for more information don’t take this step lightly or you may be rejected. On top of the basic information, MLM programs may want to know:

  • Why you want to join
  • How you plan to promote their products.

Most platforms however will provide you with a good amount of promotional materials such as text links, ad banners, posters, guides, e-books and so on. Many even provide a personalized website within which to manage your sales.

Conclusion

Paul and Nic Logo - Make that Sea Change

Hey there, my name is Paul and I am the owner and founder of Make That Sea Change.  I spent 30 years in a cubicle working the 9 to 5 grind and just wanted to live at the beach.  I was lucky enough to achieve that with the help of my wife and our new Pilates studio.

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.

Let me know how I can help you fund your sea change today!

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.
