Welcome to DAY 12 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 12: DUPLICATION
Today's topic is short but necessary: we’re talking about DUPLICATION. The ONLY way you’ll succeed in this business is if you’re duplicable. So in EVERYTHING that you do KEEP IT SIMPLE, but put your personal touch on it. For instance, in teaching a class, Keep it simple – don’t out do yourself and hold some extravagant event. When guests come to the event they will think they can’t have the same type of class themselves, and thus won’t try to build a business or share. You want people to see what you’re doing and think, “I can do that too!”
When you sign someone up- make sure you walk them through it so they know how easy it is to sign someone else up. Also, if a member needs help placing an order – walk them through it. That way, they’ll know how to do it in the future, and they’ll also be able to help others.
It’s important to remember not to do EVERYTHING for your downline members. I struggle with this sometimes, because I want to help you out but often times the best help is to teach you guys how to do it yourselves. So I have literally tried to hand everything to you on a silver platter – scripts, presentations, etc. in hopes that you will take the initiative to use these things and grow in your own personal way. I also hope you will share these tools with your downline members so that they can grow with you. This journey is MUCH more enjoyable when you have like-minded people traveling with you! :)
Young Living really strives to make everything duplicable in its marketing materials. Inside your virtual office, under member resources, there is a wealth of informational graphics to share. Use these tools. They also offer presentations for you to download and use for classes.
Just remember – in everything you do from your business cards you hand out, to the sample packets you give, or any other samples, giveaways, classes, etc. that you have – keep it simple, keep it duplicable. And always let new members know – they can share too!
In being duplicable the best way to go about classes is this: Teach one class for a downline member who is hosting and his/her guests, then be there to co-teach the second class. For the third class, be at the class, but have your downline member teach the full class. It’s a learning process for them but it really helps fire them up and get them going. They will see you in action, see how easy it is to duplicate, and then they’ll be confident in teaching their own class.
If you have any questions on duplication, please let me know!
