You may recall those mall kiosks back in the early 2000s that were manned by eager salespeople asking you to let them apply Dead Sea products to your hands and see the magic for yourself.
They were friendly but pushy, and many mall-goers found them a tad annoying. However, the business model worked well enough for the original Seacret Direct to go beyond mall kiosks and grow into an MLM.
Now, you can buy Seacret products from direct salespeople in person and online. In 2018, the company was named #72 on the Direct Sales News list of Global direct sales companies. If you know how many MLMs are out there nowadays, you know that ranking seventy-second isn't bad.
That being said, the total revenue of an MLM doesn't usually reflect the average income of its affiliates. As always, Legendary Marketer wants to make sure that you know the best online business tips. Now, let's take a closer look at how much money you can really make selling Seacret products.
What is Seacret Direct?
Seacret Direct is a skincare company that uses the direct sales or multi-level marketing (MLM) business model to sell its products. In 2005, the company started, as we already mentioned, by selling its products out of mall kiosks. Within five years, Seacret Direct had hundreds of kiosks around the world and decided to kick things up a notch by giving affiliates the opportunity to make sales on their own time.
What does Seacret Direct sell? The key to all Seacret products is that they contain the salts and minerals found in, very specifically, the Dead Sea. According to the company, the Dead Sea holds around 12 essential minerals that can't be found anywhere else.
These products come in the form of scrubs, bath salts, face masks, and more. Those who sign on to become Seacret Direct affiliates are referred to as Seacret Agents–which is pretty clever, we have to admit!
What Are the Perks of Becoming a Seacret Agent?
For starters, Seacret Direct does sell appealing products. (It is, however, worth noting that in the past 16 years, other companies have come up with lines of comparable products that tend to sell for less.)
Seacret Direct also offers five clear ways to make money:
- Commission on all sales, which ranges from 30-150% (although you should anticipate a rate of 30% more often than not)
- Commission on the Preferred Customer Program (which grants affiliates 25% on all of their customers' auto-ship orders, which can lead to a relatively passive income)
- Team commission (10-15% from every sale made by a member of your downstream)
- Leadership Check Match Bonuses (which you can only access if you become a Bronze Director, which is far from easy)
- Performance Bonuses (enter the cars and other incentives that very few people will ever receive)
Clearly, there are a lot of ways that you can make money selling Seacret products. The question is, how easy is it to achieve these goals? How much money is the average Seacret agent making?
How Much Money Do Seacret Agents Make on Average?
If you've read our other MLM reviews, you probably know by now that some MLMs provide a fairly transparent income disclosure statement. We consider these statements transparent if they show a breakdown of the average, high, and low incomes of affiliates at every level of MLM sales. We also look for a percentage–how many people are selling at the lowest income level?
Seacret Direct isn't quite as transparent. Their income disclosure statement simply states that Seacret Agents make an average income of $1,201 annually. Why is this information not as helpful as it may seem?
We have no idea how likely it is to make more than $1,201 per year–or less. If Seacret Direct is anything like other MLMs, this average is likely taking into account a handful of six-figure incomes, a bigger handful of four-figure incomes, and a massive number of three-figure incomes. That's right, most people tend to bring in a few hundred dollars a year from their MLM affiliations.
How Can You Make the Most Out of Selling Seacret Products?
In order to become a Seacret Agent, you start by paying a $49 registration fee (which you can expect to pay annually). From there, you will need to close a certain number of sales or maintain at least four active customers in order to keep your sales status active. If you have progressed up the latter, these numbers grow larger.
How do you make sure that you're keeping an active status and making more than just a few hundred dollars per year?
The trick is marketing. Remember those mall kiosks? They worked because the sales team was able to engage with tons of shoppers throughout the day and make their pitch: “Give it a shot, you'll love it, and now you can buy some to take home.”
You need to be able to make your own pitch and, with the help of the internet, reach an even wider audience than you would in the hallway of a shopping mall. No matter how intriguing these products are, they aren't going to sell themselves.
There's a lot to learn about marketing and building a high-ticket online business, and we don't have time to spell it all out here. Fortunately, we have plenty of tools that can help you achieve those exact goals.
