Why Influencers are Turning to Monat for Income
It’s true! People often confuse influencer marketing with MLM, but in reality, they are totally different and, instead, go hand-in-hand. So, if you are an influencer or if you’re thinking about jumping on the MLM bandwagon, read on!
What is MLM?
To get the inside scoop, we spoke with our girl, Astrid Bavaresco. Also recognizable from E! WAGS Miami, to discuss her experience with Monat, and why she chose to join in on the multi-level marketing world. We wanted to get her definition of MLM as an insider, and she says:
“MLM is like a marketing strategy in which the person is compensated not only for sales that they personally generate, but for the sales of others they bring on to the team… You recruit people on and create a downline of distributors and a hierarchy of multiple levels of compensation.”

They said I couldn’t so…I 𝐃𝐈𝐃! and guess what, 𝐘𝐎𝐔 can do it too 🤑🙌 Im so passionate about offering this opportunity that has changed my life to others. I wish I would have known about this 𝘴𝘰𝘰𝘯𝘦𝘳 because my only regret is not getting into network marketing earlier on in life. 𝘔𝘦𝘯𝘵𝘰𝘳𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝟓 new girls this second half of February. DM if you are interested in joining my team @likeabosslabel_ and level’n up!
Essentially, this business model allows you to make money through commissions off of your direct sales, and also commissions and bonuses based on creating a team under you. Astrid, as a well-known influencer, could easily see the income potential with such a large following to sell to and began doing her research.
What are the benefits?
We wanted to know what kind of work Monat involves — is it time-consuming and does it really pay off? According to Astrid, this is a business for creators. There needs to be a constant flow of consistent content, and you’ll need to break out of your comfort zone to reach people. As an influencer, you’ve got to produce content anyway, so it’s just about having the right balance. She prides herself on maintaining 80% regular, lifestyle content and 20% Monat, to not overwhelm her audience.
Astrid shed some light on the monetary benefits of Monat for us… She explained that the bigger the team you assemble beneath you, the higher you rank within the company. Higher ranks mean bigger bucks and perkier perks! Those who are motivated and consistent can make anywhere from $4,000 – $100,000 in a month, and enjoy an entirely paid for Cadillac! Not to mention, the before-and-afters in terms of your hair quality is braggable! Astrid said she wishes she had better documentation of her hair before Monat, but she was too embarrassed about it — not anymore!

Astrid seems to be incredibly happy and successful in her journey with Monat. She emphasized the importance of how motivation and consistency, leaping outside of your comfort zone, and reaching those outside audiences can boost your ranking and success in this business. There’s always going to be negative feedback, stigmas, and haters. Still, she believes in the brand and the business model for sure!

It happened… I got the 𝘍𝘙𝘌𝘌 Cadillac! When my parents left it all behind in Venezuela to come to the US this is what they did it for! Not a free car, but for me to able to have better 𝘰𝘱𝘱𝘰𝘳𝘵𝘶𝘯𝘪𝘵𝘪𝘦𝘴. I’m so grateful for them and for the opportunities I’ve had, but the truth is, I’ve made the most out of them and they only showed up when I did. I have learned to say “𝐘𝐄𝐒” more often… to taking risks, stepping out of my comfort zone and doing whatever it is I want to do without caring about what anyone thinks or has to say. I can’t believe I almost let negative people doing the bare minimum for themselves talk me out of joining this biz & having a side hustle just because I already have a “career”. I can’t hide the joy that victory brings me. This is a huge win for my amazing team @likeabosslabel_ and I (because I wouldn’t have accomplished this without them). I am forever grateful for this community and for the likeminded group of ambitious and loving women I have been able to reconnect with and meet through this journey. & for you reading this: The universe is an abundant place and there’s always a chance for us. Set your course 𝐓𝐎𝐃𝐀𝐘 for the life 𝐘𝐎𝐔 want to have and remember that you can do more than you think. The way will find you when you step up, 𝘣𝘦𝘭𝘪𝘦𝘷𝘦 in your own dream, and work toward it!! & Once you achieve your goals, remember to pay it forward and encourage someone else who needs a reminder of what’s possible… I believe this is what my platform is for, this is how I want to “influence” those who come across my page. I’m here to lead by example, to to help others, to spread happiness, to be kind, to be authentic, to empower, to uplift, to inspire and to show other women it can be done! If I did it… 𝐲𝐨𝐮 can do it too! & I can help you… DM me to join my team! Thank you @monatofficial for this amazing reward ❤️ & @lucarbonell @williamsoncadillacbuickgmc for making this an amazing experience.
