What is Stella & Dot?
Stella & Dot is a social selling company (MLM company) based in California that creates flexible business opportunities for women.
What do they sell?
They sell jewelry, bags, accessories, and clothing for trendy women.
I currently own some of their pieces, and I like it a lot. It’s really unique and pretty for fashion jewelry.
(These are some of my favorite collection from Stella & Dot!)

How you can make money?
You can sign up as a Stella and Dot Ambassador and earn money selling their unique brand of jewelry or skincare product.
You can decide when, where, and how to sell. This allows you to earn in a way that fits your lifestyle.
How can you sell?
You can sell in-person, virtually, on-the-go, through social media or however you choose. You don’t need to have an inventory. Stella & Dot take care of inventory and shipping.
Selling through social media is HUGE now.
For example, the Facebook Live video & YouTube video is an excellent place to sell online. 90% of consumers have said that online reviews in general influence their buying decisions. And also, 42% of consumers said that they wanted to see 360-degree views on products, so Facebook Live and YouTube videos can meet that expectation.
Instagram is also a good place to sell online! 95% of Instagram users are younger than 35 and they love shopping. 72% of Instagram users claim to have made a product purchase after seeing it on the app.
Attention: Check the Stella & Dot website and browse their products. Are you willing to pay for the full price? If no, then other people think the same.

You earn between 20-40% commission on sales. You’ll get paid weekly via direct deposit to your Stella & Dot debit card. I used to join Stella & Dot as Stylist (now it’s Ambassador) and I did not like this payment method. Therefore, I quit Stylist and join their affiliate program.

Make Money Through the Affiliate Program
If you don’t want to buy any kits, you can sign up for an affiliate program! (It’s free to join)
Affiliate marketing is the process of earning a commission by promoting the brand’s product/service on your blog/website/social media.
When an affiliate link is clicked, a small file called a cookie is stored on the user’s computer. Then the user made a purchase, the merchant can see that they were referred by the affiliate link. (from your link)
If you sign up for Stella & Dot Affiliate Program:
- you’ll earn 12% commission from new customers and 5% commission from returning customers (if someone buys $100 product from your link, you earn $12 or $5)

Will Stella & Dot Ambassador Fit Your Lifestyle?
Stella & Dot Ambassador is a good way to make money if:
- You have money to invest
- Large social circle
- Strong sales strategy plan
- Many followers on social media
- You love jewelry
To make money as Stella & Dot Ambassador, you need to buy a starter kit as well as other products. You also need to keep buying a new collection to promote.
In other words, Stella & Dot is using Ambassadors to promote their products and also making money by selling their products to Ambassadors.
Think about how you’re going to make sales. Maybe you start out by leveraging friends and family members. This often works okay in the short-term, but not for the long-term.
You could end up losing money if you purchase many collections but don’t make a large number of sales.
Creating a successful long-term business requires expanding your audience pool and fewer business expenses.
Making money as Stella & Dot Ambassador, you need to build a strong sales strategy plan.
Stella & Dot provide a bonus, events, games to keep motivated their Ambassadors!
For example, they did an event called Share the Love Bingo in February 2020. (it was 5 x 5 bingo) Each square has a mission. If you filled 3 square you get $30 store credit that you can use at the Stella & Dot store. If you filled the whole square you get $900 value Gucci handbag. Woohoo!
It’s definitely NOT easy money. But, the more you sell, the more you get commission & bonus.
