Well, I could have sworn I’d already written this blog, or at least some notes onto my phone or iPod when traveling, but I can’t seem to find it anywhere.
It will be a fairly quick “bumper edition” as I’ve not done “My Week in Younique” for two weeks now. Sometimes life gets in the way…My apologies.
New Team Mates to Welcome
In the last My Week in Younique update I welcomed Jo to the team. She immediately had gone on to qualify as an official White Status presenter within 48 hours.
That’s mighty impressive (considering some of my team mates have yet to get a single sale on the board!)
Now I need to welcome Jill. She joined through this very blog (I think) late in the evening – much to my joy. I am rather hoping she will take after Jo in terms of sales.
No pressure though, Jill. Ha! Welcome Jill to #theAteam. Glad to have you aboard.
Earlier this morning, I had my first comment from someone in Germany. I would love to sponsor German recruits so if anyone is in Germany in search of a Younique sponsor, then let’s talk.
Younique launches in Mexico first then Germany later in the year. I’m on the lookout for wannabe Younique presenters in both countries now!
Last Sales for March!
Younique is a dangerous business. I suppose it’s the same for other cosmetics type companies. This is why I blogged “If you Love Makeup Don’t Become a Younique Presenter”. Frankly, the last thing I should have done today, was buy more makeup, but I couldn’t resist. I had to do it.
While putting through an order for some friends and clients I just slipped mine in. (2 Lip Stains – if you’re curious...).
I was out walking with a friend at the weekend. We just kicked off the #5x50chal. She used to do Avon. I asked her why she stopped and she said because she was spending all her commissions on makeup. I nodded, silently, knowingly. It’s true. I’ve been a bit guilty of that too.
Party Confusion – Frustrating
It’s the confusion surrounding the virtual parties…I really do think that a lot of people I speak to still don’t understand the virtual party concept. I am not sure I can clear it up for them.
Twice now, it’s happened, where friends have bought through my own site (which is good of course) instead of using either my party link or the link I created for them.
Once it happens, they have a support document saying how to “attach it to a party” – but frankly, I don’t believe it works. Or it’s not idiot proof enough…
Think I need to have words with the co-founder Derek. I could probably teach him a thing or two (given I started building websites 20 years ago this summer…
So anyway, last night my lovely friend Han went and spent over £100 in products for herself and her daughter, and didn’t use the “party link” I’d created for her. (Oops).
I immediately tried to contact support.
They said she had to do it.
I wrote to them on her behalf (using her email address).
They sent the non-sense email with instructions (like the above document) – and 24 hours later – we’re no further forward.
At this point, I don’t think Han can be bothered to sort it….and I’m frustrated because it means we’ve both lost out on the “Party Perks”. (If she didn’t want them, I would have had them quite happily…)
Ok sure, I got the commission, of course. Thankfully. That was both great and needed today – as the new month begins tomorrow.
She managed to get her £8 Y-cash March Kudos (for spending over £60) which is something…But we both did lose out on half-priced and FREE items from that sale of over one hundred pounds. Boo!
Splurge for Dainty
Oh well I currently have almost £80 in y-cash so it’s not like I am desperate. Might have to Splurge for Dainty. It’s out tomorrow. I love Elegant which I have already. I already have one order for Dainty. Anyone else want it too?
Younique Simplified: 3 ways to buy Younique from me:
1) Shop through my Younique site. Always appreciated. Sure. It’s what most people do here.
2) Shop through my own party links (I always have one going. If you can be bothered, then simply ask for the link address – tweet me or scan my tweets or email me: younique (at) theanewcomb.co.uk)
3) Shop through your unique party link and you get the perks! Half priced and maybe FREE makeup! (We do need to become Facebook friends for that to happen though). Let me know if you want some FREE Younique products!
