UPDATED 2020: Am currently still a presenter but not marketing the products or actively sponsoring any longer. If you need a hands-off sponsor then I’m your gal.
Wondering How to Find a Younique Sponsor?
Did you end up here because you’re wondering how to find a Younique Sponsor that suits you? Need to know how to join Younique but not really sure where to start? Have a few more questions about sponsors before taking the plunge? Let me see if I can offer some guidance by sharing some of the questions that I have been getting since joining Younique myself…
Recruiting Youniques – Peaks and Valleys
Because of the holidays, it’d been quiet in terms of my recruiting. Actually January sales were a bit dead too, I won’t lie to you…
It’d been maybe two months since I had someone join my team* – and only a few of my gals in the company have had recruits too.
But once January kicked in, properly, so did the queries about joining Younique. Hoorah!
Guess it makes sense that things are quiet over the holiday period. People are wrapped up with festivities and/or they’re strapped (financially). Once payday rolls around, let the recruiting begins!
Anyway I noticed a huge spike in many of my Younique posts about joining us, (especially on this post here that you may have seen?), and so I thought it might be a good time to answer some of these questions that I’ve been getting lately about finding a sponsor. I figure if one person has had it – there are bound to be others so here we go!
FAQs About Younique Sponsors
When the following are in quotes, they are real questions copied and pasted. In other cases, without quotes, they were paraphrased or amalgamated, from several on the same topic!
1. “Could you advise me if you require a sponsor to join Younique and if so how I go about this?”
Yes, you need to have a sponsor in order to join Younique. You can choose to find one on the map on the Yoounique products website.
You can simply Google “younique sponsor near me” (or whatever) to find one, OR you can #jointheateam now. (PS: That’s my team, Thea Team, aka The A team! Well, I had to say that, right?)
2. “Does it Matter Where Your Younique Sponsor Lives?”
This is actually a very common question…
If it does to you, then yes, but realistically-speaking, not in this day and age.
Personally speaking, I have recruits in the US, Canada, Australia and England, and I am based in Glasgow (or Northern California for part of the year).
With Younique you can work your business wherever you are (as long as we are in that region) and you sign up under or have people sign up under you from anywhere! How cool is that?
Yep, I have a truly global company right now! 🙂
I signed up under a woman in the Scottish Highlands, who was a friend-of-a-friend. I had never met her but had spoken to her on the phone.
She has since left the business, so I was then placed under her sponsor who I don’t really know too well, but hey, she’s there if I need her.
3. “I am wanting to know if it is better to go under a black sponsor or white (does it matter) what kind of sponsor I have?”
Wow, this is an excellent question, which I heard today, in fact. Here’s what I told her (though slightly edited):
I personally think you should just pick whoever resonates with you…to be honest.
Once you’re in, you will gradually gravitate toward some higher ups. Find someone whose willing to mentor/coach you – if you need it!
I suppose I’d say go with someone who is ambitious, and is actively working their business, so probably not white or even yellow really. Chose Pink or above.
That said, whites and yellows have to get some recruits to promote up – so that’s not a hard and fast rule either. Follow your gut!
On that note, what I’ve done to help any of my recruits, who are proactively working their business, is I’ve had some recruits sign up under them*.
If I see someone starting out who’s working their business and struggling to get recruits for whatever reason, and I know they really want to promote up, I essentially give them my recruits! That’s why I’ve personally not had any new recruits for a while (until today when I welcomed Sharon my team).
I’m in the process of writing an interesting, if a little controversial, blog about sponsors and uplines. Look out for that one soon, but in the meantime, I’d say it doesn’t hugely matter who your sponsor is, as your success will ultimately be down to you.
There are so many Younique FB groups to join, a good “back office”, loads of webinars and youtube videos…
If anything, it’s like trying to drink a sip of water from a fire hydrant (there’s that much Younique stuff out there).
I believe you’ll find your path. You’ll find the people and the channels to work your business your way, if you want to.
So no you are not necessarily better off signing up under a Black vs Blue for instance.
4. Does my sponsor make money off me?
This is asked a lot in a variety of ways (so therefor not in actual quotes).
Basically I believe the question is “Do you as my sponsor benefit by me joining your team?”
The answer is a tricky one. It’s actually a yes and no response!
I don’t make any money off of someone just joining my Younique team.
- As a sponsor, I don’t make money on you joining and simply buying your kit.
- I only make money when I start to qualify for pink and above. So if I qualify for pink, blue, green etc…I make varying percentages on my whole downline – that’s my recruits and theirs too. (Yippee)
- So really how you start to make any real money with Younique is, you have to sell the basic requirements for each level (e.g. for pink and blue 250 personal sales, green and orange 500 personal sales on up…) – as well as to help my team promote up too. With Younique, you can’t promote up past Yellow – without having a team, and you can’t really earn on your team until you start promoting to the higher levels.
- I’ve had several recruits join my team and then never sell anything at all, and then drop off.So they didn’t benefit me at all.…
Incidentally, for every ten or so who join my team – two or three seem to actually work their business.
More than a year later, I’ve finally started to get a team of women who are working Younique, and that benefits me, which is awesome.
If you hope to make some real money with Younique, then you have essentially two ways – 1) you will need to recruit well and train them to recruit too…or 2) you will need to be a rock star seller – who sells, sells, sells tons of products!
5. “My sponsor resigned, and corporate filled in the blank with another person. Can this be changed? Can I be part of your team? Do you have any idea how that would work? Can you make that happen as an up line person?”
Oh boy, I sure wish I could! My own sponsor resigned too as I said, and they simply re-assigned me to her sponsor. That is just how it works. I’ve had several people expressing dismay with their sponsors lately…I wish it were just so simple to say “move over to mine”!
Sadly it’s not.
The thing is folks, you don’t really know how your sponsor will be until you sign up with them.
To be honest, I am pretty sure I too would not have “100% approval rating”!
Not everyone will love my ways, and so they go looking for other Youniques to show them the way.
That’s the good thing about Younique – if you have a sponsor you’re not totally enamoured with you, then there are other people out there to lean on for support or learn from.
Bottom line? Your success is not down to the sponsor you choose so don’t over think it.
Yes they can be helpful and supportive, true, but if they are not, it’s your job to find your support elsewhere.
As I have said, there are masses of groups on FB, webinars and tutorials, articles, blogs and so forth.
Your sponsor really won’t be in charge of your success (or failure).
What you really ought to hope for in a sponsor is someone to lean on when you need some help, advice, or who will prop you up when you feel like giving up (and honestly there are days when all of us feel like giving up…and some actually do!)
You need to persevere in this business – it’s not an easy one. You may want to check out My Year in Younique – for more info on my personal journey.

A Relaxed but Supportive Younique Sponsor
As a Younique sponsor, please know that I don’t push or prod my team at all. Well, unless they tell me they want me to. 🙂
At the end of the day, when you sign up with Younique, it’s your business to work or not work. I’m not your boss. It’s not my job to make anyone work, or sell or recruit. That’s down to the individual. You do what works for you!
I do let my team know that I am here for them any time, and I can do video coaching any time eg via Google Hangouts.
If you decide you’d rather go for a black status presenter or someone more local to you – then that’s fine too!
Please just find someone who’s working their business, who you feel sells well online (in a non-spammy way!) and be prepared to do your own thing if they turn out to be disappointing in anyway!
That even holds true if you join my team too! 😉
