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!
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
This 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.
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!
