My Week in Younique – I Sold _____ of Makeup

Welcome back to ‘My Week in Younique’ where there is much to update you on. March has truly kicked off with a bang! It’s been a time of personal achievements, new products, deliveries, team mates, record breaks and territory too.

$XX,XOX PRS – YES!

I sold 10,000 PRS of Younique Makeup - Hooray!This weekend, I managed to earn a very special PRS charm – EDITED: I am not allowed to say how much I sold.

It took me over one year and four months (and ten days, but who’s counting?) Sure there will be many who do that monthly, or who did it much faster, but there are also a lot who haven’t yet and even some who will never achieve it at all.

So this month, somewhat unusually, sales came from people I know. Often they come from strangers. This month the two big spenders who helped me reach my target were actually my big sister Wendy, and best bud Brian. Some of our products are suitable for men too.

I just want to say a heart felt “thank you” to all of you who purchased anything from me.

TWO NEW TEAMIES

Welcome #theAteamThis week I welcomed two new lovelies to my team. One from the isle of Islay and the other is from England. I often get asked for tips for recruiting but I honestly I can’t say I have ever really tried.

With Younique, as with most Direct Sales companies, there is this whole “Make a list of X amount of people you know…” To “share the opportunity” with…and I have no doubt that will work for some people. But honestly? It makes my skin crawl. It’s just now how I am wired.

Will blog more about that later, but my personal tips for getting recruits would simply be – be positive, consistent and share the love of the business, the products and the benefits. And not is some scripted sort of way. (Scripts also make my skin crawl). But that’s just my opinion. You can recruit whatever way you want. I prefer strangers coming to me rather than sharing the opportunity with anyone.

NEW PRODUCTS

Friday I am pleased to say my new Younique collection – Trendsetter arrived. Like 80,00 other people in the first two days of March, I rather excitedly shopped for our new products that were launched. It was a hassle because the site was chewing up so much bandwidth with all of us clamouring to get our makeup, it kept falling over. Well eventually the order went in and just over a week later, my new products arrived.

 Here’s an unboxing video I made, using my phone, in the middle of a networking event. It’s only 90 seconds and will show some of the new products (but I did miss out the new liquid eye liner I got, oops!)…Are you a Trendsetter?

 

We have a handful of products that immediately sold out (again). Yes, I know it’s frustrating that so many of our top product’s are not in stock. We are in fact victims of our own success. The foundation the puffer brush, the new body bronzer, the kudos and collection bag all out right now.If you are really desperate can actually order the Younique Liquid Foundation if you buy this Stroke of Beauty collection

My Race to Green

So as you can probably tell, it’s been a great and exciting week…I’ve been keeping track of my “race to green” here on my blog, and I gotta be honest with you, it’s not looking hugely promising for this month.

Well, unless all of my team mates start to really kick some ass…(Some already are, thankfully). We’ll see.

I’ll keep trying until I reach Green status. I had felt like it would be this month – primarily as I’ve gotten quite a few recruits lately, and we were launching all these new products (which I assumed everyone would be buying like I did). Well, not so much…Oh well, I’ll keep praying for a miracle. I do love a good challenge anyway! See you next time lovely! x

If you love make up, do you fancy joining the Ateam? I’d love to have you!

Charting Progress: My Race To Green (Mar 2016)

[olimometer id=olimometer_id css_class=olimometer_css]

February 29, 2016 @ 10pm – Welcome lovely to the place I’ll chart my race to Green in March 2016. Yes, I know I’ve already said this before (last summer), but this time I’m ultra-determined! It honestly couldn’t be a better time to shoot this high, as we are about to launch new products, collections, catalogues, kudos and a territory tomorrow morning.

So I will chart the progress in the thermometer above as myself, with the help of my team, embark on the race to green.

Why Race to Green With Younique?

“What’s the big deal about Green?” you might be wondering. Well it’s important for a number of reasons.

1) Green is when you transition from “Exemplary” to “Elite”, as it’s the fifth level out of eight Younique levels. Also you’re passed the halfway mark.

2) Even more excitingly, Green means a promotion! Once a Younique hits green, we earn 30% discounts/commissions on all sales and purchases from here on in. (That’s up from 25% of yellow, pink and blue).

NOTE: Learn more about Younique’s presenter levels and commissions here.

3) In addition to that good stuff, you make more money off of your downline than you do at Pink (3%) and Blue (4%) too!

Yep, Green’s a whopping 5% commissions on your downline’s sales. Brilliant!

Green Targets To Hit

To actually hit Green status with Younique means the person, and their team needs to sell 10,000 PRS (or $10,000 USD).

As Younique presenter hopes to hit green, we also need three qualified first-level presenters, and to personally sell 500 PRS.

For the first time, a Green status presenter has company sales targets to hit too. So a Green Younique will also have to have 2000 PRS company-wide sales. (This is where the comp plan starts to go a bit confusing, to me anyway!)

It’s All About Your Team

As they say there is no “I” in TEAM. It’s taken a long time, (fifteen months), but there are finally people in my downline who love Younique as much as I do, and who are working their business – each in their individual ways.

The more Rock Stars you have in direct sales the easier it is to promote up, so I am pleased to say I’ve got a number of Younique “Rock Stars” on my team now!

There have been six new recruits since the start of the year – and hopefully a few more will come on board soon too. It’s a perfect time to join.Younique Charms Earned by Younique by Thea

In addition to reaching green this month, I will also hit my target of 10,000 PRS.

When you sell $10,000 you even get a 10k charm, which I am looking forward to earning. It will be my seventh. I never thought I’d be so motivated by small charms, but hey, I am.

So please check back, in a few days or weeks and we’ll see how close I get to achieving this lofty goal.

I am beyond-excited and will document some of the efforts in my next My Week in Younique post. Stay tuned.
