Wouldn’t it be great to know how to sell Melaleuca online?
I’m willing to put my neck on the line and assume that this happened:
You joined Melaleuca because you love the products…
…you thought everyone you shared them with would love them too…
…and you figured they’d get excited about joining your team so that you could all make money with Melaleuca together.
There’s most likely one big problem:
It’s harder than you thought, and now you’re typing this kind of thing into Google:
How to promote my Melaleuca business…
Add in COVID and it’s really tough.
Nobody wants to meet with you when they’re afraid about that situation.
I have two pieces of good news.
- Offline marketing methods don’t work anyway (funny bald-headed Englishman story about that)
- Learning how to sell Melaleuca online works even better now
What you’ll learn today…
Sell Melaleuca? Let’s Get To The Heart Of The Matter…
You’re busy in life…fully understood.
The entire family is home.
There’s too much to do.
Too many distractions.
You’re researching everywhere to find out how to sell Melaleuca online successfully.
If you feel a little rushed at the moment, need to bookmark this post and come back later to read it, then I want you to know about my Feature Download in the blue box below.
I’ll shoot you a few bite-sized “Quick-Start Guide” info pieces via email over the next few days so that you can learn without feeling overwhelmed:
Illegal To Sell Melaleuca Online?
Don’t Let Naysayers Stop You From Making Money With Melaleuca
Be careful who you listen to when it comes to virtually building the Melaleuca business opportunity.
Don’t listen to uneducated people claiming Melaleuca as a pyramid scheme.
Some people see these warnings from the head office website:
And get scared about using the Internet to find customers and Marketing Executives.
Yes, you need to follow all company guidelines around the Melaleuca business opportunity.
Don’t let that stop you from being a leader and entrepreneur, however.
There are several successful strategies to sell Melaleuca online without violating any company terms of service.
Keep reading because I’ll get into these details below.
Silly Attempts To Make Money With Melaleuca
A big reason most Melaleuca members struggle to sell goes back to the silliness taught inside the network marketing industry.
Some “gurus” make it sound like the Internet is a “get rich quick” path to MLM success.
They sell “magical” network marketing systems where you supposedly push a button and:
You’re rich LOL
Sorry to burst your bubble.
That nonsense is… well… nonsense.
The next reason most Marketing Executives struggle when it comes to how to sell Melaleuca online is because there’s a “strategy” taught that goes like this:
Post your product pics or Melaleuca business opportunity pitches across your social media profiles and hope for the best.
People get turned off when they see all those Melaleuca bottles on your Instagram or your “Let’s get rich!” Facebook posts.

Before you attempt to sell Melaleuca online, ask yourself if you’d ever walk into an offline networking meeting and say this:
“Hey all you PEOPLE! I’m a Melaleuca rep and do I have a DEAL for you!! Step right up so I can sell you a bunch of cool stuff. Discounts! Deals! C’mon, I need to make some money selling this Melaleuca stuff and I need you to buy right away. Oh, by the way, I’ll sign you up on my Melaleuca business opportunity team, too. That way, we can all get Rich, RICH, RICH together!!! Let’s GO people!”
You’re probably rolling on the floor laughing if you picture that scene in your mind.
It IS pretty funny.
But, that’s how you come across posting crap on social media.
You’re making yourself look like a talking, breathing infomercial if you’re doing that. People see you “pushing” stuff they don’t want (even if it would benefit them if you sold it more effectively to them).
Step #1 for learning how to sell Melaleuca online is to stop doing that nonsense immediately.
By the way, in the following video you’ll learn 3 vital questions to ask that help build your Melaleuca network marketing business:
How To Sell Melaleuca Online:
It Requires a Basic Understanding For Selling ANYTHING Online
“To get what you want, you have to deserve what you want. The world is not yet a crazy enough place to reward a whole bunch of undeserving people.”– Charles T. Munger
Put the above quote near your computer and follow its advice throughout your entire Melaleuca business opportunity career.
It doesn’t matter if you’re selling a network marketing business or an online crafting course.
All successful online marketers figure out how to become valuable to their target market and focus on providing real solutions throughout their selling journey.
I encourage you to think of yourself in this way:
I’m not a Melaleuca Marketing Executive. Instead, I’m an entrepreneur.
Can you immediately feel the difference inside yourself when saying, “I’m an entrepreneur”, as opposed to acting like you work for Melaleuca?
It’s a 180 degree difference in the way you:
This is super important!
If you gloss over what I’m saying here, get impatient and say, “C’mon Matt! I just want to know how to sell Melaleuca online. Get to the point and show me how to make money!”
Then, you honestly should stop reading and go find someone else to listen to.
However, if you stop and ponder this idea of being an independent entrepreneur for a moment or two…
…then you’re already well on your way to building a huge business for your family.
This is especially true in network marketing where you’re one of thousands of Melaleuca drones acting and selling the same way.
Do that at your own peril and don’t say I didn’t warn you.
Sell Melaleuca (A TON) By Providing Valuable Solutions To Your Prospects
Think about why your customers want your Melaleuca products.
You need to understand the problems you’re solving in order to think about this correctly.
You have the opportunity to sell within six main categories as a Melaleuca representative:
Let’s say that you love the Household line of products because you use them and love their environmentally-safe aspects.
Sell Melaleuca Mistake: Posting Product Pics On Social Media
Do not…I repeat:
DO NOT hop on Facebook or Instagram, start posting images of your EcoSense Clean Home Pack and yelling about how great it is for your home’s environment.
Have you ever gone out on a date?
What would you say if your date said this two minutes into it: “I LOVE you!! Let’s get married right now!”
You’d bolt, right?
Online marketing is like dating.
Posting product pics on Facebook or screaming about the money to be made with Melaleuca on Twitter repels people.
You’re asking to get married before you’ve dated.
Here’s how you date as you sell Melaleuca online:
Sell Melaleuca Online By Becoming a Problem Solver
Offer helpful tutorials, tips and solutions around the products that you sell.
If you love Melaleuca’s household line, then that’s your niche.
If you love the Bath & Body line, then that’s your niche. Is it the Beauty line you fell in love with? Then, you’re now in the Beauty niche.
Here’s what you do:
- Offer tips and helpful content around the dangers of chemicals in the home (example).
- Show your prospects the benefits to using natural ingredients and solvents in their laundry and household cleaners.
- Help them see how chemically-polluted household products cause health challenges for their loved one.
Yet, not easy.
It requires a little thinking and effort.
This video training goes into detail about solving problems for your Melaleuca customers:
Will Fear Stop You From Using Successful Strategies To Sell Melaleuca?
I almost let my fears get the best of me back when I first learned what I’m sharing with you.
Create content? Share tips? Teach?
Your brain might go: “I can’t do that.”
You create content all the time.
Yes, really LOL
Have you ever told someone that you loved a movie?
Or a restaurant?
Then, you know how to do it in a way that helps you sell Melaleuca online.
“Creating content” is simply passing info along to others with similar interests as you.
Here’s another area where your brain and fears might get the best of you:
“But, I’m not a household products expert.”
- “I’m not a beauty expert”
- “I’m not a nutrition expert”
- “I’m not an essential oils expert”
“What happens if I start teaching tips about this stuff and people think I’m a fraud?”
Stop “what iffing” yourself to death, OK?
The only way people would do that is if you act like something you’re not.
That’s not what I’m telling you to do.
Instead, do this:
Use The Journey Approach To Sell Melaleuca Online
Here’s what the Journey Approach is:
You love the Melaleuca line of household products. These products have genuinely helped you and your family. But you’re not an expert in the field (yet).
So, get on the Internet and say something like this:
“I was concerned about the chemicals in many of the household and laundry products my family used to use. I’m on a journey to find alternative products that don’t include the dangerous chemicals. I’m gonna research it more and tell you about it as I do. How would you like to come on the journey with me? I’m not sure where it all leads, but I’m excited about it and would love to share what I learn.”
You’re being yourself.
Real and authentic.
You aren’t lying or propping yourself up as an “expert” about anything.
Guess what I’ve learned?
People love following real people, not fake gurus who “fake it til they make it”.
You’re gonna make a lot of money with Melaleuca if you don’t overcomplicate this online marketing “thing” and just be yourself.
Decide which line of Melaleuca products you’re most passionate about and ask yourself what others need to know about that topic (beauty, household, oils, nutrition, etc):
- What do they need to know?
- What do they worry about?
- What problems do they struggle with?
Offer them ideas, strategies and tips for solving those challenges.
Instead of fumbling around in the dark, posting silly Facebook product pics or “get rich quick” nonsense on Twitter, your prospects see you as a helpful resource.
You’ve created a fun, positive learning environment (dating your prospects) and they’ll now listen as you transition into selling (marriage).
Quick Example Of How To Sell Melaleuca Products This Way
Look at what people search for on Google:
How would your life change if you stopped annoying family or social media friends and instead started using successful strategies to sell Melaleuca?
Strategies like attracting people searching for:
- chemical free cleaning products (480 monthly searches)
- safe laundry detergent for babies (880 monthly searches)
- best essential oil for stress (480 monthly searches)
That’s 1,840 people looking for your solutions every month from only 3 Google searches!
Attract those people and watch your ability to sell Melaleuca online skyrocket.
By the way, this process is called Attraction Marketing. You might enjoy reading my review of a resource that teaches more about how to attract “best fit” customers like this.
How Network Marketing Itself Might Derail Your Ability To Sell Melaleuca Online
Here’s what I wish someone showed me back when I was new to the network marketing industry:
MLM is a great marketing system, with benefits such as:
- Improving as a person via personal development
- Helping others win at their goals
- Learning marketing and sales goals
- Increasing your income
Network marketing also has pitfalls, such as:
Absolutely No Uniqueness
The very nature of standard MLM marketing training means thousands upon thousands of network marketing reps mindlessly compete against one another.
It’s bad enough that hundreds of companies exist and teach people to hold home meetings, drag people to weekly group meetings and post annoying product pics and business opp messages on social media.
You’re competing with all that but the worst part is you’re competing against every other Melaleuca rep if you drink the standard MLM “marketing” Kool Aid…
…spewing the same awful cesspool of Melaleuca product pics on your “walls” and getting blocked from annoyed friends and family.
Your opportunity for successfully making money with Melaleuca comes after you get serious about creating your own unique selling proposition.
Don’t be the person who cuts corners.
Learn successful strategies to sell Melaleuca & become a marketing pro.
You’ll blow past all the other “me too” marketers who can’t figure out how to sell Melaleuca online.
By the way, is Melaleuca an MLM?
Your Solution To This MLM Flaw
Build your online presence.
Become unique by setting up your blog and point your social media accounts back to it.
That’s the key.
That’s the “secret”.
Although there isn’t any actual secret!
It’s basic marketing and math.
You need online traffic that consists of people already looking for the solution you provide via your products and Melaleuca business opportunity.
I say there’s no secret because this fact plays out no matter what anyone sells online, whether it’s coaching, physical products, a course or a Melaleuca business.
Generating online traffic is this:
You need to attract real, live human beings who desperately want their problems solved…
…to visit your social media platforms and blog where you’ve provided helpful tips and info.
You “date” them as a helpful resource so that they come to like and trust you.
Doing that makes them receptive when you finally place your Melaleuca products in front them as their ultimate solution.
One more thing:
Don’t Focus ALL Attention On Social Media When Selling Melaleuca
You don’t own any social media platform.
You “rent” space when operating on YouTube, Facebook, SnapChat, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, etc.
Those accounts get deleted if the OWNERS of the platforms disagree with what you say or do.
Accounts running great today…
Poof! Gone tomorrow.
Deleted from history in an instant.
I’m not saying NOT to use social.
But use it wisely by pointing your social media activity over to your own website (blog).
Your blog stays up forever as long as you continue paying your hosting fee (that fee is the price for conducting “professional” business on the Internet).
- Social media = Building a business on Sand
- Blog = Building a business on Bedrock
Use The Blog/Social Media Combo To Solve All Problems When Selling Melaleuca
Building your Melaleuca business opportunity on bedrock brings these benefits:
1) You “own” your online presence
I’ve seen friends of mine get their Facebook or Twitter accounts deleted. I woke up one day to find that my YouTube channel had disappeared overnight (I got it back but it was a hassle).
Don’t underestimate the dangers of relying 100% on “rented” social media.
2) You’re unique
Once you learn how simple it is to start a blog, then you’re immediately setting yourself apart from all other Melaleuca Marketing Executives.
You’ll become unique.
While all the other folks act like human infomercials on social media and cry about why no one pays attention…
…you’ll attract raving fans that appreciate how you’re focused on first solving their problems before throwing up all your product sale material on them LOL
3) Create even more income!
After you create your nutrition blog, or beauty blog, or a blog that talks about environmentally favorable products…
…know what happens next?
You add more ways to monetize the traffic above and beyond Melaleuca.
Because you OWN that traffic and can make additional revenue via:
- Amazon products
- Affiliate products
Heck, maybe you’ll grow into offering 1:1 coaching or your own beauty course down the line.
Note that I didn’t say build a Melaleuca blog.
This keeps you in complete compliance with all Melaleuca rules about marketing online.
I know that the company has its own website vendors to build you a Melaleuca-specific website.
That’s great! Use it if you’d like.
But those kinds of sites aren’t effective at generating a swell of traffic like building a general topic blog is.
Use your independent blog to attract visitors looking to solve the problems you’re writing about and then point them back to your Melaleuca site to buy products or join your team.
Keeps it all in compliance 🙂
