Welcome to DAY 14 of 29 Days of the Young Living Business Series. Each day in February, I'll post a business tip to help you get started sharing these amazing products and growing your business.
DAY 14: CREATING A FOUNDATION & PLACEMENT
Creating a foundation is important to your business. The sooner you start building your “legs”, the better. The first step to starting a foundation is to have at least 7 people on your LEVEL 1 or your “front line” who are on Essential Rewards, or at least ordering every few months. This is your first goal. So as you start enrolling people, just put them on your LEVEL 1 until you have 7 people on ER.
Your second goal is as you sign-up these people and teach them about the products (enough so that they order every month on ER), educate them about the business opportunities and offer to teach a class for their friends & family. THEN they’ll start signing people up. Their “legs” will start building naturally.
PLACEMENT: You can “place” new personally-enrolled members under the sponsorship of those 7 people on your LEVEL 1. This will allow you to start building towards the Rising Star Team Bonus. This also sets you up to eventually achieve the highest rank in the company of Royal Crown Diamond.
If someone on your front line is on Essential Rewards, it’s always a nice gesture to give them a new member to sponsor—keep yourself as the enroller. It gives them a taste for what the business is like and how their team can easily grow. You will still earn the Start Living and Fast Start bonuses. After a new member signs up, you can call Young Living (or use LIVE HELP) within 5 days after they enroll, and change their enroller and/or sponsor.
Not EVERYONE will want to work this as a business – they may just want to purchase product and that’s OKAY. Most likely if you give them time they’ll discover that sharing the product is easy and that being compensated for it is even easier. Work with them when they are ready. On the other side of that you may have people who are signing up and wanting to work the business IMMEDIATELY. Teach these people how to share and how to be compensated, but let them take the initiative to build on their own. Don’t throw new members under them until they show that they can do this business. I have run into this problem often where I give a member EVERYTHING they need to start building and they don’t enroll a single person. They eventually drop off of autoship and then never order again. I have taught classes for these members as well and given them members to sponsor and a few months later they’ve given up. These are not the people you want to invest your time in. So don’t worry about what they’re doing just continue working with your other members and enrolling new ones.
We’re MINING FOR DIAMONDS. I just posted a graphic in our leaders group that said,
“THERE IS NO SECRET. I simply showed the plan to 1200 people. 900 said “NO” and only 300 signed up. Out of those 300, only 85 did anything at all. Out of those 85 only 35 were serious and out of those 35, 11 made me a millionaire.”
This explains network marketing perfectly. You will talk to SO MANY people about Young Living. Many of which will buy a start kit - about half of those people won't buy anything again. Half of the people that do order again will get on Essential Rewards. Half of the people on Essential Rewards will enroll a new member. Half of those that enroll a new member will be serious about building a business. And half of those that are will be your core group that are going to Diamond Rank+ with you. You’re looking for just a couple handful of people to actually build WITH you and make it to the top. Are you coming with me?!
If you ever have questions about your personal organization and where to place people or how to start building, please get in touch with me. I’ll be happy to give you a call and we can discuss the best options.
