So isn’t this post about making money? I’m getting to that, don’t worry. The reason why I decided to pursue the business side of essential oils is because I fell in love with using them! A friend of mine, and fellow blogger asked my why I didn’t just sign up to be a distributor and get the 24% discount on oils. What? I did not even know that even existed. I did that immediately! So, being proud of myself, I announced it on my various social media sites….and you know what? People felt the same way about oils that I did and wanted to save some cash too. Before I knew it, people were signing up under me (in my “downline”) and I was in business. I had my very own Essential Oils Business! Yeah, it’s just that easy. When you have a product that people love and want to use again and again, you don’t have to be a sales person! I do not like selling stuff or being pushy, but I do love sharing my knowledge about things I am passionate about. For me, this just made sense.
I do not like to call it selling oils or memberships, but rather, introducing people to their amazing benefits and letting the oils sell themselves. This is not a door-to-door, cold-calling, or flyer passing business. Not at all. I do most of my work completely online. From home!
First, you need to sign up for a Young Living account. You will need to start a wholesale account and become a Distributor in order to gain commissions on those who sign up under you. You can learn how to do that HERE. Plus, you get the wholesale discount on your own oils so it’s really a win-win situation!
Next, find your outlet to spread your message. Mine is my blog and the accompanying social media sites that I run. But, you do not have to have a blog. All you need to have is passion, knowledge and an desire to get the word out.
If you are not the blogger type you can teach classes or make graphics to share on social media:
Make Graphics: You can make simple graphics to share your love of oils with your family and friends on the different social media channels. It is super easy to do it you use THIS photo editing tool. It is the one that I use and love! Below is an example of one of my graphics. Once you have your graphics made then just put them up on social media and link them to your unique affiliate link, or add your YL member ID number onto the graphic itself. Just make sure there is a way that people can find your member number so they can sign up under you! Easy!
Remember, this is yours. You will find a way to get the word out if you are passionate enough about your essential oils and your essential oils business!
First educate, then help people sign up (but you need to have a sign up page)
1) You can purchase a personal website from Young Living for less that $10/month and direct people to that page. You will find those through the Young Living website.
2) You can also just use THIS LINK, and swap out my member numbers for your own. This option is completely free, all you need is a member number and you are set. Sharing that link with people will direct them to a sign up page, they will be signing up under your member number. Use the methods I mentioned above to direct people to your page. You can even shorten your personal link using Bit.ly to make the link prettier and easier to fit in memes.
3) You can start a blog and make a landing page that explains why you love oils and how they can join you in spreading the word. It’s easy to set up. You can even start up a FREE WordPress.com site and make your landing page there. I personally have a website set up through WordPress.org and my host is WordPress Engine. They are awesome!!!
HERE is my landing page, notice that I explain my story and provide my number and links to sign up.
Want some help getting this all set up?
I have good news for you: I built a business website to help people get their own businesses up and running! When I got started with the business end of Young Living, I had NO IDEA what I was doing! I knew how to spread the word through my blog because I had already been doing that. But, I had no idea how to set up a business, teach classes, navigate how the system works, any of that! So, once I learned how to do all of this I started collecting resources and pooling them together. One day I got the idea to put everything into one place and let other people learn from it too. I now have a great team who has joined me on my mission and together we have built up Revolution Oils and we are creating abundance with essential oils! You can join us too, we would love to have you! All it takes it two easy steps and you will have full access to all of our business resources for FREE! Yep, that’s right! Here is how you do this:
1) Sign up with Young Living through the person who introduced you to the oils. Hopefully, that is ME! HERE is where you can do this. It will have to be either through me or someone on my team to get access to our site though. You will need to sign up as a distributor (remember, you get 24% off you oils for life when you do this!), and you will need to purchase your starter kit. In order to have access to our team, we require that you sign up with the Premium Starter Kit. Don’t worry, we are not requiring this because it is the most expensive — it’s the best value and the easiest way to get started with essential oils because it comes with 11 Everyday Essential oils and a home diffuser. Bam! You’re an oily pro! Below is an image that shows what is included in that kit…
Now Once People Have Signed, How Do I Earn Money?
When a person signs up under you, you will earn a commission on the oils that they purchase. There is also a lot more to the program…
Well, are you ready? The time is now! Essential oils are growing in popularity every day and so many people are catching on to how amazing they really are. If you want to join in and start your own essential oils business, please follow the steps listed above. Now you can have an essential oils business all you own.
