Getting Started as a Younique Presenter
Before you can be successful and profitable with Younique, you’ll need to get off to the right start. Getting started as a Younique presenter is relatively simple, but there are a few steps in the process. For the most success at this stage, choose a helpful sponsor and take advantage of the Youniversity training program. Here are the steps to get started:
1. Find a Sponsor
A sponsor, aka a current presenter, is required in order to complete your sign up. In many cases, the sponsor is the person who introduced you to Younique as a business option. As your sponsor and mentor, this person is your guide, there to help you become a successful presenter.
If you don’t know someone in the business, you can find a current presenter in your area. Or if you don’t feel comfortable reaching out to a presenter directly, you can reach out to Younique’s support team and they’ll assist you in finding the right sponsor.
Once you’ve found a sponsor, you may proceed to the next step of signing up. You can sign up using Instagram, Facebook, Google+, or an email account. Since Younique is a social media-driven business, it’s advised you set up social media accounts if you’re serious about pursuing a business with Younique.
At registration, you’ll be asked to complete a simple online application and choose from two New Presenters Kits. Option one is the Ultimate Eye Younique Presenter Kit, and option two is the Ultimate Skin Younique Presenter Kit. The kit and registration fee is $99 total, and if you feel like purchasing both kits and spending a little more money, you can.
After registration, you are instantly allowed to begin selling the products through your unique e-commerce store — you receive a free personal website with registration. You gain immediate access to the Younique Virtual Party System, your Younique Back Office, and a plethora of training materials that you can use to move forward in creating your new business while waiting for your presenter kit to arrive.
3. Youniversity Training
While you may start sales right away, as a new presenter, you’ll be submerged into Youniversity Training Academy which will assist you through how to get started, helpful marketing tips, and essential business tools. The Younique team and your sponsor will make sure you’re connected with the entire Younique family by adding you to private Facebook group pages where you can discuss strategies and pose questions to other Younique presenters.
4. Younique Payments System
Every time you sell a Younique item, you’ll receive a commission; when your commissions reach $50, you’ll receive a Younique Debit Card. Earnings are credited to the debit card so it’s easy for you to spend, receive, or transfer your money whenever, however you want.
As your career as a Younique Presenter progresses, so does your compensation. Check out this detailed breakdown of the royalties (compensation) program for more information about how your business can grow successfully. The more time and effort you put into it, the more money you’ll likely make.
How to Be a Successful Younique Presenter
With Younique, you get out of it what you put into it. In other words, the effort you put towards promoting Younique products will reflect the sales and commissions you receive.
There are many ways to sell your products — you can share your unique e-commerce website link on all of your social media accounts, host home and virtual parties, and tap into your already established network of friends and family.
Use Your Current Network of Friends and Family
Who better to share your passion with than your family and friends? As you generally see or communicate with these people on a regular basis, this is a great foundation to start with. You can always let them sample some of your favorite products, and if they like them and decide to purchase from your store, they may even be inspired to share your information with their friends and family.
Word of mouth is a more traditional way of selling, but it is still very effective. Friends and family are likely to trust your opinion and advice, so the more you are able to convince them of your love for Younique products, the more likely they are to purchase those same or similar products from your site.
Leverage Social Media
In addition to your inner circle of friends and family, you have your social media friends. Consider using Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, or a personal blog to leverage your business and reach a larger audience.
Inviting others to visit your site is as easy as sharing a link in your Facebook status or Instagram profile. Going beyond just posting a link is what will garner more purchases and more clientele. Engagement and personal stories alongside your link or a picture of you wearing Younique products will increase the likelihood of people purchasing merchandise from your site. Perhaps you film a video of your beauty regiment using your favorite products. People love to see things happening first hand, so posting videos on all social media platforms is a great way to draw people in.
Think of all the ways salespeople in stores have drawn you in. They talk about how much the product has done for them, what it means to them, etc. You’ll want to do the same thing when sharing links to your site. When you’re passionate about something, it’s a lot easier to convince others of why they should buy a product!
Additionally, sales and freebies are always a dealbreaker, in a good way! Offering freebies or discounts is a great way to promote your products, and by association, your business. Share these “coupons” across your social media platforms and explain to your followers what a great deal this is.
Creating your own groups on Facebook is another great way to expand your clientele and really engage with your audience. Offer exclusives or specific beauty challenges to those that are part of your Facebook group; this will help them feel engaged and make them more likely to buy your products.
The training academy will walk you through how to best use various social media platforms to your advantage, but as this is your business, you have the freedom to post content that you see fit.
Utilize the Party System
Many other multi-level marketing companies (Lularoe, Mary Kay, and Avon are some big names) emphasize the importance of hosting parties to introduce clients to products. Younique, unlike many of the others, doesn’t push you to open up your own home to host parties. Younique allows you either to host a party strictly online through a virtual party system or to host in the more traditional sense, with a party at your home, a friend’s home, or any other physical location.
Younique’s party system is also an opportunity to figure out if becoming a presenter is the right fit for you. You can do parties as a “host” before signing on as a presenter. To be a host, you need to partner up with a current presenter and help organize the party. While you won’t receive commissions as a host, you will receive rewards points! This is a great way to see if selling Younique products is the right fit for you.
Hosting a party at home is a good way to physically introduce people to Younique products. You can invite people through email, Facebook, phone calls, text messages, or whatever other communication portal you prefer. Think of it as a girls’ night! You can even do a specific theme around certain products (i.e. eye makeup only, skincare products only, etc.).
As a presenter, it’s valuable to network and connect with all of the attendees. Get to know them, and don’t be spammy or pressure them into buying products. Instead, ask them to create a wish list. Then, hold onto the wish list and follow up with them later by suggesting specific products from their wish list or introducing them to similar products.
It’s important to let things happen as organically as possible in order to build a steady clientele that comes back for more.
You’ll receive access to the Virtual Party System when you complete the registration process. A virtual party operates similarly to a Facebook event in that it can take place over several hours or several days, and you can customize it however you want. There is a lot of flexibility when it comes to hosting a virtual party, and it usually allows for a wider reach of clients than an at home party. Most presenters create a Facebook group and share the link to their party within the group. By doing so, you can incorporate pictures, videos, and personal touches that give clients more insight into the products that are available for purchase.
Keep in mind that the purpose of parties is not to sell but to network. Not all parties will be profitable, but those attendees may come back to you down the road, so building a relationship is highly advised. Also, don’t forget to thank your attendees. The more attention you give each individual, the more likely she’ll come back.
When you sign up to be a Younique Presenter, you are introduced to a network of people in the Younique world that can help you progress through your business journey. This network includes your sponsor, the Younique corporate team, and fellow Younique presenters. The profits you make are the result of time and energy you put into sharing your products and stories through already established networks, parties, and social media.
