SwissJust is a Swiss-based company that specializes in a broad range of products made from essential oils and natural extracts. The company was founded in 1930 by Ulrich Justrich, but the company's products were not sold in the United States until 2003. SwissJust is now sold in 35 countries around the world, including the United States. The company's mission statement is "To provide the beneficial effects of nature to millions of homes by means of a progressive and committed organization, filled with opportunities for professional development and personal growth." As a SwissJust consultant, you are responsible for selling the company's products, ranging from essential oils to homeopathic remedies to cosmetic preparations.
Starting Out as a SwissJust Consultant
To get started as a SwissJust consultant, you have the option of purchasing two starter kits: the Small Kit ($49), which contains a sampling of balms and creams as well as guides and training materials; or the Business Kit ($149), which contains over $370 in products as well as training guides, materials, brochures and postcards. You can fill out your application form online and purchase your kit at the same time; there is no need to go through another SwissJust consultant.
Compensation as a SwissJust Consultant
SwissJust consultants can expect to earn a commission between 25% and 40% of personal sales. The company offers detailed information about income potential for download on its website. Based on 1 wellness gathering per week, assuming you made $350, you could earn $420 as a minimum monthly income. Of course, your income can go up from there. The company provides an estimate of $1260 if you host 3 wellness gatherings per week and average $350 per gathering in sales. The company also offers a recognition and incentives program that includes dream vacations among its prizes.
Thriving as a SwissJust Consultant
The company offers a step-by-step career plan for anyone who wants to thrive as a SwissJust consultant. In this guide, the company details the four major ways you can earn income: by demonstrating and selling the products, sponsoring others who will join the company as consultants, training other consultants, and qualifying as a Team Leader. The company offers detailed information on each leadership level and its benefits, such as volume bonuses, team bonuses, personal sales bonuses and the like. This level of transparency and detail is unusual for direct sale websites, which often make you apply with a consultant before ever finding out what your base commission will be. The company also offers a JumpStart program for those consultants who are particularly effective at starting and growing their businesses.
Is It for You?
To enjoy your career as a SwissJust Consultant, you need to be comfortable with direct sales, and if you want to go up the ladder of success, you need to be comfortable recruiting others. You should also be passionate about natural care, health and well-being, homeopathic remedies and essential oils. You should be committed to improving the lives of your customers by providing them with these products.
All of the company's products are manufactured at its own factory in Walzenhausen, Switzerland.
