Occasionally we come across people who believe that Scentsy is a pyramid scheme. We wanted to clear this up, we often
hear that: "if you have to recruit a down-line" that this is considered a pyramid scheme. This is not the truth, this is call network marketing. Network marketing is a legitimate business activity, while pyramid selling is not.
Pyramid Schemes(or Ponzi schemes) encourage and reward people for recruiting when there is little or no value in the products and services. They are illegal because they entice the unwary, unwitting, and unwise into a scheme that will most likely lose them money. -Mary Christensen
Any scheme that encourages participants to buy large amount of product (called front end loading), which usually end up in basements and garages unsold, is considered a pyramid.
Pyramid Schemes tempt greedy, lazy and naive people with high commissions and bonuses which is often based on how much product is bought at the entry level....if it seems to good to be true, it probably is.
With Scentsy we don't promise you how much you will make, we give you the opportunity to make money. The same opportunity that was given to hundreds of thousands of consultants before you. We don't make you buy inventory, the great thing about Scentsy is you do not need an inventory to be successful, nor do you need to "front end load" when signing up for Scentsy.
For $99 you get a kit that will not only help your business to succeed but the value of the kit exceeds $99. So no, Scentsy is not a pyramid scheme, Scentsy strives at giving you the opportunity to work from home at your own pace. Whether its for extra money for a night out, or to feed you Scentsy habit. Many individuals see the vast potential of our products and brands and transform this opportunity into a career. Remember: this opportunity will only be as good as the effort that you put in to it.
