2. Brand Recognition: The product line is created by Dr.Katie Rodan + Dr.Kathy Fields, the Board Certified Dermatologists who created Proactiv and Proactiv+
3. I wanted my products cheaper (I get a 25% discount)
4. I wanted a tax write off; I can pay Uncle Sam or invest money into a business whose products I use anyhow!
5. I wanted to be CEO of my own company without a Bricks and Mortar operation. The start up costs for this business is less than $1000! Your options of becoming a consultant are with a purchase of a $395, $695 or $995 business kit--really who can start their own business that cheaply and sample all the products and still write it off?
6. Products are clinically proven by third party Dermatologists with excellent outcome results of each regimen.
7. R+F is currently the #2 premium grade skin care line in the USA, and poised to move into the #1 spot. Other premium grade skin care lines are Clinique, Estee Lauder & Lancome and those companies have been in business for years.
8. R+F Umblemish Regimen for acne is the #1 Premium Acne brand in the USA (R + F Unblemish recently surpassed Clinique)
9. No inventory is required, all sales can be done on line. I do like to explain for active Consultants to earn a commission, a CRP (Consultant Replenish Program) is necessary to order monthly, which is essentially $100 worth of products, but it is easy to fill as many of my customers do not want to order on line. I order for them and also I order the products that I myself or my extended family needs replenished.
10. No parties required (although I personally like to have EVENTS with wine and cheese & conversation. I also do personal complimentary consultations; it's how you choose to run it-you are your own Boss). The company does suggest at least one BBL, which is called the BIG BUSINESS LAUNCH as any new business would have an grand opening.
11. I can work anywhere with WIFI on my phone or laptop
12. R + F offers a 60 day $ money back guarantee even if Empty Bottles
13. Behind the scenes, there is a PULSE turn key Infrastructure which handles my e-commerce website (which you can choose to pay for or not--it's up to you and costs $24.95/month and counts toward your CRP). The PULSE site handles payment, processing, shipping, inventory, and includes a communication corner with templates for advertising and a Business Library with all sorts of helpful info (I am not the most computer savy, but the PULSE site they provide for your unlimited use is very easy to understand---even for me!)
14. R + F boasts a less than 2% Return rate--because the products work!
15. Consumable product, which means people use it and re-order
16. Anti-aging sales are a 3.9 plus billion market in North America
17. Free training weekly via conference calls you do in your own home.
18. Sales for this company went from $3 million to $ 680 million dollars in just 7 years!
19 The Growth rate of R + F is over 106.5% per year for the past 5 years in a row--yep, we are doing something right!
20. Products are currently distributed in US and Canada (not yet global). To put this in perspective, Proactiv is in 181 countries and is a 9 Billion dollar company and owns 86% of the acne market. R + F is launching in AUSTRALIA in Fall 2016! Hello my Australian Friends!
21. Sales for R + F are Projected to hit 1 Billion in sales by 2017 at the absolute latest.
22. Recognized by Oprah, Ellen Degeneres, Allure, Vogue, Bazaar, The Today Show, Forbes and the list goes on and on.
23. Dedicated staff at Corporate Headquarters of Derm Nurses/trained Product Specialist to answer questions
24. Winner of 2013 Gold Stevie Award for Consumer Products( to put this in perspective, Apple won this same award for the iphone)
25. Harvard Business School deemed this biz a cutting edge opportunity
26. This is my retirement (from my Day job) plan because I am the type of person who needs to stay busy and mentally stimulated and challenged. And it is fun work! Truly LOVE it!
27. You can earn trips and a Lexus car....notice this is at the bottom of my list...but for some people, this is a very big motivator.
28. This company and both Doctors Rodan + Fields are changing skin and lives. They not only have helped millions improve their skin and self-esteem, they are also helping people find financial freedom. I find this very rewarding if I can do the same.
29. It is primarily a company women get involved with and it is very empowering. Women empowering women....but also men and couples have become very successful as well as very young college students are becoming millionaires doing the biz--it is not everyday, but it does happen as I see the announcements on it. The business plan takes work and it is 3 to 5 year business plan. Like anything in life, to make it, you have to work hard--it will not be served to you on a silver platter.
30. I saved the Best for Last---you make great friends and do a lot of personal/self development in this business! I Love my Team Younger You and my Sponsor and Team Bio Friends, and would love for you to join my Team!
31. New added reason I chose this biz: As I excel in the business, I plan to increase my annual donation to causes that are near and dear to me; my priority is Children's Craniofacial Association
In 2002, Dr. Rodan and Dr. Fields initially launched their premium grade anti-aging skin care line in high end department stores like Nordstrom's. They were competing against many premium skin care products that had been around for 70 plus years. Despite that, the sales did fairly well, but the Doctors felt it should be doing better. The Doctors did a market analysis study and found out that the way people were finding out about their new skin line was by a recommendation of a friend or relative. With that information and knowing the newly found power of e-commerce that was occurring, their financial advisers recommended that they use the direct marketing model to sell this line of premium skin care. They gulped, but the Corporate experts convinced the Doctors that direct sales via independent consultants was a viable business model. Thus, in 2008,they made the bold move and pulled the products off the shelves of the high end department stores! And here we are today, with a company that has increased sales via this model from 3 million dollar in sales to 680 million dollar in sales in 7 year! Smart Docs! The sales are projected to hit one billion in sales by 2017 at the absolute latest. By the fall of 2016, Rodan + Fields is launching in AUSTRALIA! The company is poised to become the # 1 Premium skin care company in the USA, and their line of Unblemish for acne and acne scarring did take that title as # 1 Premium acne treatment in the USA.
