If you’re searching online for the Perfectly Posh Income Disclosure Statement, you probably know it doesn’t exist. Why is this important? In many cases, multi-level marketing (MLM) or direct sales companies are required to provide an income disclosure statement. If you’re considering becoming a Perfectly Posh consultant, the fact that the income disclosure statement is not posted online may concern you. So without a Perfectly Posh income disclosure statement, what should you do? We’re here to help. This blog post is your one-stop-shop for the income, commission, and compensation information found online regarding Perfectly Posh. Note: We do not sell Perfectly Posh, and we neither endorse nor discourage you from becoming a consultant. The decision to do so is yours to make. This blog is just our opinion based on what we’ve found online. So here it is:
Why is the Perfectly Posh income disclosure statement important?
This would show the percentage of Perfectly Posh consultants earning income. You can take a look at other MLM or direct sales companies to see what their income disclosure statements show. Without a Perfectly Posh income disclosure statement, whether or not consultants make a profit is unknown.
How do I become a Perfectly Posh consultant?
Becoming a Perfectly Posh consultant is pretty easy. But there are few requirements:
If you meet the above requirements, you can choose to pay $99 to become a consultant. You’ll get a starter kit with some products.
So you pay the $99 plus shipping and tax. Then what happens? Once you purchase your kit, you’re eligible to start receiving 20% commission on every item you sell.
How much money can I make selling Perfectly Posh?
Great question! While most of the information you’ll find online boasts an opportunity to earn more commission, let’s assume that you stay in the 20% commission range. By all other MLM standards (like LuLaRoe, Younique, Young Living, Advocare, etc.) this is pretty standard. Many people would love to earn 20% commission where they work. But let’s do the math, shall we?
How much Perfectly Posh product do I need to sell before recouping my startup investment?
Let’s say you signed up for $99 plus shipping and taxes. We’ll say the total is $110, and that’s being pretty generous. (The shipping on the website is typically $5.99.) There are also website fees. After your first month as a consultant, you’ll be charged $10 a month for your Perfectly Posh website. That’s $110 for your first year (including your first month free), and $120 for every year after. Since there’s not a lot of information out there on other costs like sample products, business cards, promotional magazines, party supplies, and other things, we’ll leave those out of the equation for now. To turn a profit with Perfectly Posh, you’ll need to make at least $110 + any months of website fees you’ve incurred.
So how much in Perfectly Posh products do I need to sell to earn $110?
You need to sell $550 in product to break even.
$550 x .20 = $110.
How easy is it to sell $550 in product from Perfectly Posh?
It depends. First you need to ask yourself about your selling experience. Are you a professional salesperson? Then you need to ask yourself if you know enough people willing to purchase the products. Perfectly Posh is known for its bath, body, and beauty products. For the purpose of this example, let’s say you want to sell future customers a relatively inexpensive Perfectly Posh product: bars of soap.
The products look pretty nice, and we’ve heard they smell great. And at a $9 price point, it’s not like it costs a ton of money, right? Perfectly Posh also sells a lot of lotions at the same price, too, in case your friends and family don’t like soap.
To earn $550 and break even on your starter kit, you need to sell $550/$9 = 61.111… (essentially 62 because you can’t sell .111 bars of soap) products costing $9 each to break even. So you either must sell one bar of soap to 62 people, or sell 62 bars of soap some other way.
And let’s say you do that. Don’t relax and start planning your vacation yet. You haven’t made any money; you’ve just broken even.
Let’s be generous and assume you sell 62 bars of Perfectly Posh soap within one month and you don’t have to pay the website fee yet. If you sell 63 bars of soap, you will officially turn a profit…of $1.80.
How much Perfectly Posh product do I need to sell a month to equal a full-time job paycheck?
Ok, so let’s say you want to sell Perfectly Posh because you’re a stay-at-home parent or a financially unstable person looking to avoid getting a minimum wage job. Federal minimum wage is $7.25/hour. The average full-time employee works 37.5 hours per week. Let’s assume you don’t plan on taking an unpaid vacation, and let’s assume you’ll deal with taxes later. So a full-time minimum wage employee earns $271.87(5) per week or roughly $14,137.50 per year.
To equal that wage by selling Perfectly Posh, you need to sell $70,687.50 in product, which is approximately 7,855 bars of soap per year. Ok, ok, you think. But how much do I need to sell per month or per week?
Per month: 655 bars of soap
Per week: 152 bars of soap
(Note: We’ve rounded up for any decimals because you can’t sell partial products and would need to sell an additional product to get the partial value)
That’s 22 bars of soap per day in a non-leap year.
But you’re not including all the commission increases from selling so much product.
No, we’re not. Why? Because you need to sell 112 bars of soap before you reach that level. But if you’d like to break out the calculator yourself, here’s the Perfectly Posh pay plan:
Should I sell Perfectly Posh products?
Hey, that’s totally up to you. Without a Perfectly Posh income disclosure statement, there’s no way to even speculate how many consultants are earning money at all. You can look to see what other consultants may think of their experience. Be wary of asking a current consultant for their take on it, as they are motivated to get you on their “downline” and begin earning commission from your sales. A quick Google search can provide you with many people’s experiences selling Perfectly Posh. If you like the company’s products, you don’t need to sell them to get a discount. They do have a perks program that gives you rewards for sharing a referral link or hosting a party:
It seems like your friends would need to purchase at least $200 – $299 in product for you to get a $25 perk. But you do not need to purchase a starter kit to get perks; you just need to be a customer.
How else can I make money working from home?
It’s frustrating to look for a side hustle. We totally get it. Here are a few ideas that may work for you:
- Join a freelance writing site and pick up some articles to write. Many have zero start-up fee, and you can work when you want and get paid.
- Become a virtual assistant. This will require you to take a more active role in your work from home environment. Hours are typically more in line with a traditional desk job, but you do get to do it from the comfort of your home.
- Get paid to take surveys. There are lots of places to do this online, but you can also check for in-person opportunities that typically pay a couple hundred dollars per session. Look for focus groups and advertising studies in your area.
- Full disclosure: The links that follow are referral links. It doesn’t cost you anything to sign up but we may make money if you do. Sign up for Ibotta (Referral code: icvunwn) and Ebates. While you won’t necessarily “make” money, you’ll save money in the form of cash back. It’s great for purchases you’re already making.
- Full disclosure: The link that follows is a referral link. It doesn’t cost you anything extra to sign up but we may make money if you do. Start your own blog. This is not a get rich quick thing (or get rich ever, TBH), but if you spend a lot of time online and enjoy writing you may like having a blog as a project. Many bloggers build an audience over time and earn some extra cash from advertising.
The bottom line
Choosing whether or not to sell Perfectly Posh products is your choice. The FTC has a handy guide to evaluating multi-level marketing companies. Take a look and decide for yourself.
