Starting a small home business is a great way to earn some extra cash. It can also be rewarding if you sell something that enriches the lives of others. Selling essential oils with Young Living will help you do both.
By selling essential oils you will be part of a growing industry. The global market size is more than $6 billion and is expected to reach nearly $12 billion by 2022. The rise in popularity of essential oils for use in producing natural flavors and fragrances is what’s fueling this success.
Joining the Young Living family is an easy way to get in on the action. It also comes with a number of perks and incentive programs to help you get started and boost your business.
Here are seven benefits of selling essential oils with Young Living.
1. Wholesale pricing
As a Young Living distributor, you get 24% off retail pricing of company products. When your customers place an order, that 24% profit is yours to keep. It also means you get to enjoy any Young Living products for personal use at a discount.
You can also enjoy Young Living’s products at wholesale price without contributing as a business. Sign up for a Young Living wholesale membership and purchase an enrollment kit to be eligible for these discount prices. You do not have to sell anything or order a minimum amount of products each month.
There’s a downside to not participating as a distributor. You will miss out on free product offers and reduced shipping costs through Young Living’s rewards program. It also won’t be possible to take advantage of enrollment bonuses and earn commissions from customers.
2. Rewards program
Do you like free stuff? Of course you do. One of the best parts of being a Young Living distributor is enrolling in the Essential Rewards Program.
It’s an easy way to earn credit toward products that can be collected whenever you wish. Earn up to 20% of each order in Essential Reward Points. These are redeemable toward Young Living products and can be used at any time.
There are fives Essential Rewards collections to choose from. Select one that matches your personal needs. You can also create your custom reward package.
Enrolling in the program may also result in reduced shipping rates.
3. Bonuses and commissions
Earn bonuses and commissions by selling more product and sponsoring new distributors.
Many of Young Living’s products are assigned a Personal Volume number. The amount of product purchased is measured in PV. How much product in PV you sell may determine the bonuses and commissions received.
Maintaining an order of 50 PV per month qualifies you for special bonuses. Bumping that up to 100 PV will allow you to earn commissions from people you enroll to be distributors.
When you sponsor a new distributor you can earn 25% of their orders during the first three months for up to $200. You can also get a $25 bonus if they order a Premium Starter Kit. After three months, you will receive 8% commission on their orders and 5% from any distributors they enroll.
4. Have confidence in a great product
Quality counts when it comes to the business of selling essential oils. By becoming a Young Living distributor, you can have confidence that you’re selling top-shelf products.
Young Living essential oils are therapeutic grade. That means they’re designed for healing and not just fragrance. They’re closely monitored at every step of production to ensure a high-quality product.
Not only are these oils top of the line, but come in a variety of types. There are many great oils and combinations you can use and sell.
5. Work from home
One of the most enjoyable aspects of working as a Young Living distributor is earning money while working from home. This gives not only gives you flexibility in your work hours, but also sales tactics.
It’s up to you if you want to make cold calls, set up displays, organize product parties or simply bug friends and family. With the right tools you can also run your business online using just a laptop and an internet connection. You get to choose whether to approach strangers or do everything through a website.
Work on your own schedule and sell product any way you feel comfortable. Build your home business empire on your terms.
6. Support network
While you may be working from home, you won’t be alone on your business journey. There are a number of support systems in place for distributors right from the get-go.
All newcomers participate in Essential Oil Bootcamp. This gives distributors the opportunity to learn about selling Young Living products while not being overwhelmed.
If you maintain an order of 100 PV monthly you gain access to a special business training center. Here you’ll find step-by-step video tutorials and other resources to help run your Young Living business. It’s a great way encourage the growth of your enterprise.
Joining the Young Living team also gives you access to an exclusive Facebook group where you can meet other distributors and bounce ideas off one another. Take the opportunity to grow and learn to be a more productive distributor.
7. Develop leadership skills
Being a Young Living distributor and running a business gives you the opportunity to develop leadership skills. The confidence gained from this activity can carry into other aspects of your life.
Consider this from distributor Amanda Aintrazi:
“My Young Living business has given me so much confidence,” she said. “I am a leader now, and it is such a rewarding business. I absolutely love coaching my team and discussing oils on a daily basis. It is so amazing when you can talk to someone about wellness and you are so passionate about it. I never in a million years thought I could find a passion within a career. Although this isn’t my full-time job, it is in my two-year plan to make it be. This business has shown me you can love what you do and be incredibly passionate about a company and its products.”
The skills you learn from dealing with customers and any others you work with will have a positive effect on your day-to-day tasks.
