Becoming an Advisor
You can become an Advisor, and earn a 40% off products that you PURCHASE or DISTRIBUTE. To become an Advisor you must accrue orders totaling at least $3,000 in retail within three consecutive pay periods, and have at least $500 in a pay period to remain eligible. You can either buy the $3000 worth of product when you sign up OR work and distribute the products through your network, over the 6 week period.
The best way to become an Advisor is to simply place a $3000 retail order (plus tax and shipping) and you immediately reach the adviser level and the 40% discount level. These products can then be distributed from your house.
As long as you pay your yearly membership fee of $50, you will always be at the 40% level. The $3000 retail order will cost you approximately $2100 depending on sales tax and whether you will be paying shipping costs because you will get the products at a discount but get credit for the retail amount.
If you sell your $3000 worth of product, your commission will be $900.
What's So Great About the Advisor Level
First, you get the highest level discount on your products: 40% and that means you get the highest level of commission: 40%. You can buy products at your discount and then sell them at retail price...thus making 40% on each product sold. But, you also earn income 4 other ways! Besides retail profits, you earn income with wholesale commissions, overrides, bonuses, and incentives.
As an Advocare advisor you have the opportunity to sponsor other distributors and earn between 5-20% commission on every product that they sell. Advocare pays 40% commission on retail sales so if you sponsor someone who joins at the 20% discount level, every time they sell a product they will make 20% commission but you will also make 20% commission to total 40%. If they are at the 25% discount level then you will earn 15% and so on. This is a great reason to get to that 40% level as Advocare is going to pay out that 40% and if you did the work to sell the product then why wouldn't you want your entire 40%?
Advisors are eligible to earn overrides. Overrides are paid on your business volume under any Advisors on your team...3 levels deep. Advocare pays 7%! Business volume is 50% of the retail price. For instance, to achieve a $105 override you would need to have
1) at least one advisor under you
2) $3000 of retail volume under that advisor - which means they have sold/ordered $3000 worth of products
3) That $3000 retail equals $1500 in business volume and you get paid 7% of that which equals $105.
Remember, these overrides are on top of any retail commissions or wholesale commissions you are already earning
Advocare pays leadership bonuses on top of retail profits, wholesale commissions, and overrides. Leadership bonuses are paid out at 3% - 19.5% at the highest levels. These leadership bonuses are paid out based on your business volume which is again 50% of retail volume under any advisors. So, you will earn that override of $105 in the above example plus you will earn a leadership bonus of 3% which would give you an extra $45 on that pay check. All of these are paid on each pay check...2 weeks!
If you are thinking this Advisor thing sounds pretty awesome...well, here is another reason to join! Twice a month, Advocare awards $20,000 in rookie bonuses to the top rookie advisors. You have one year to earn these rookie bonuses and you can earn them every pay period. You are eligible for rookie bonuses your first 12 months as an Advisor and you are only competing against other rookies for these bonuses. They are in the same position as you are in. You work hard at it and why can't you earn a rookie bonus once, twice, four times, etc. It's up to you. Think about all of those ways to earn money...pretty amazing.
