Ways to Assure Success in Your New YL Business
Be the Solution to a Problem
One of the greatest success philosophies is to find a need in the market and then to fill it. In much the same way, a Young Living distributorship gives you the opportunity to meet the health and wellness needs of many persons that may not understand the benefits of essential oils. Listen to the needs of your customer and seek to provide them a solution.
Know Your Product Well
You can be trained on essential oils and “what to say” to sell a product. However, one of the greatest sale closers is when a customer trusts you and believes in what you are selling. So, use the essential oils, know their benefits. In this way, your presentation is confident and fluid.
Make Goals to Share Your Product Daily
Your income will ultimately come from the sales of Young Living products – either your sales or downline distributor sales. Customers who are loyal to the YL products will also be passionate about sponsoring new business builders, as well. So, even though recruitment is important down the road, selling product is. . . well, essential (pun intended!).
Make Your Goal to be the Best
What better business and personal goal can there be than to be the best! The best distributor is part of that. What’s it going to take? Be devoted to the Young Living product. Polish your image. Put everything into this commitment: mind, soul, body . . . and time! The more time daily you’re putting in commitment to build the product brand, your business image, and team enthusiasm, the more you will realize in success!
Schedule Essential Oil Parties & Presentations
Young Living’s MLM marketing philosophy anticipates and requires a face-to-face sales force. It is the personal contact that makes MLM marketing so successful at all levels: company, distributor and customer, alike. And assures profits, income and benefits; especially retaining the loyalty for repeat sales.
So, to that end, dedicate your schedule to promoting parties and presentations, on both small scale and large-scale venues. Staying committed to getting your product out there will ensure your business grows, rather than just existing.
Prepare to Go Beyond Friends & Families
Don’t look at everyone as a target. As in most business, greater success happens when you focus your marketing on an identified target market.
Of course, you should draw on family and friends. However, don’t hound family and friends incessantly as your only target market. Let them know your business. Share your passion and products with them. And be prepared to move your target market beyond your personal sphere of family and friends to greater business opportunities.
Be a Leader
MLM strategy has a huge benefit in allowing the Young Living distributor to add new business builders through “downline level distributors”. This has a many-fold function: greater profit/income; team building; and helping other achieve success. The reality of this business structure is that you are rewarded for making both Young Living successful and helping others succeed.
So, see yourself and your role as a team leader and a health and wellness trainer. Thereby, your focus becomes a strategy for success to those you will help to become successful. Invest time and energy into your downline team! Schedule team trainings (public speaking, product highlights, social media content creation, events, etc.) and see the results become a domino effect of success.
Remain Active in Social Visibility
All forms of social media will impact your market success. Blog, website, emails, phone calls. Whatever form you prefer, get your face and voice out there promoting the Young Living essential oils. Draw customers and visitors to you, by active content and visible presence. Get the word out about your business and YL product, which is the key to generate new customers and passionate recruits.
Develop a Tickler System to Follow-up with Business Contacts
Of course, you don’t want to pester people. But in direct sales, follow-up contact is usually essential to loyalty or to make the sale. Sometimes, timing is everything. Remember that you should be an active listener. Listen for some indication that a “no” today, means the prospect of a “yes” in the future.
Stand Out as a Superstar
There are a lot of individuals vying for your business, even in essential oils. One of the challenges to multi-level marketing is convince others to buy from you or to join your distributorship downlines. So, make yourself unique to others. Firstly, give a client the reason to join with you; and secondly, a reason to stay loyal. These can be offering incentives, free training, or personal one-on-one service.
Treat Your Business Like a Business
Your MLM Young Living distributorship IS a business. Treat it as a business. You don’t need a four-walled building to define you as an entrepreneur. Whether you are making client-care calls while wearing cheap fuzzy slippers or Harry Winston ruby slippers, your efforts are going to achieve the most success when you see your YL distributorship as the legitimate and awesome business venture that it is!
Understand MLMs & How Success is Achieved
Knowledge is everything in success. So, learn about MLMs and the direct sales industry. Understand the commitment and expectations to make your Young Living business a success.
MLM sales requires marketing strategies like any other business. It will be successful when diverse marketing strategies are considered. Consider your target market, what the market needs, and how you can help. Always use a variety of tools to market: social media; blogs; website; etc., to promote interest and passion in others.
