If you have heard of Stella and Dot, then you are familiar with the business model that India Hicks’ uses. Ambassadors host or organize parties or “get together” to show off merchandise. At the party, they take orders and then afterwards ship the products to the customers.
India Hicks started her multi-level marketing company in 2015, so it is still fairly new. Coming from British royalty, India Hicks moved to the Bahamas 20 years ago and now incorporates the Island life mentality into her brand. India Hicks markets everything from bags to accessories to tokens to scarves and bags. These are high-end and high-quality products. Average prices range from $16-480, but at least half of the items cost less than $100.
India Hicks Compensation

The more you sell, the more you earn with their lucrative bonus program. You also can earn more by referring others to the business and building a team of your own. On average, new ambassadors made $350 in commission in their first 40 days.
