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.”
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!
