When a company pays commissions on your business and sales, it's important to know how the plan works so that you can maximize your discounts and also your commissions. I've pulled together a few important tips to show you how you can use Youngevity's compensation plan to maximize savings on your personal purchases.
QUESTION: How do I know how much to order, and where to place my order so I don't leave money on the table?
With Youngevity's system, to qualify to get paid you need a $50 QV (Qualifying Volume) order.
To qualify for 30% commission (on a Customers first 30 days of ordering), you need a $100 QV autoship order.
To qualify to get paid on a large percentage of your organization, you need $150 QV order.
Leaders (SEMD and above) need $250 or $300 depending on the rank.
If you're like me, and you have transferred a lot of the purchases you were making in other places to Youngevity product, how can you maximize your commissions?
What I do, is I have two autoships on file for my household, and I have them coming about 2 weeks apart from each other, so I don't run out of things. Remember, autoships over $50 QV get free shipping, and you get ONE a month in your account. In MY DISTRIBUTOR account, my autoship covers my personal QV requirement. Remember, for most people this should be $100 QV. For people with a downline of Distributors, it should be $150 QV. This is very important!!!!
Once you're past the requirement to maximize your pay, put the additional product you need in your OTHER autoship. Whether it's a spouse or family member's Customer account, or their Distributor account, it doesn't matter, although Distributor is often better. After you've met your personal qualifying volume requirements, PAY YOURSELF on the rest.
This solution helps your business in a few ways:
#1 - maximizes your pay on your Customers and Distributors
#2 - pays YOU on part of your product orders
#3 - gets you FREE SHIPPING on all of your Youngevity orders
#4 - gives you more than one SHIP DATE for products you want and need
In a nutshell, to maximize savings and pay: two autoships a month in two separate accounts, with your Distributor account at $150 QV.
YOUNGEVITY SOCIAL is a new program that provides TRAINING RESOURCES and HOST REWARDS for sharing your business through in-home or online events. Under the direction of Sean Brown, Co-Founder of Mialisia, we are in the process of creating a program to help all Distributors have the tools they need to build and grow their business through parties, classes, social events, and workshops.
WHAT MAKES OUR SYSTEM DIFFERENT?
- Our top Distributors from various companies are sharing their expertise and working together to create the best resources and training materials for you to select from.
- Distributors choose which brand(s) of product they are most excited about, and that they can personally share the best way possible, to be the focus of their events.
- Hosts and party attendees both have access to wholesale pricing.
- In addition to Host Rewards, there are also Customer Rewards.
- It's a hybrid model combining direct sales with opportunities to add residual rewards through auto-ship choices, and signing up distributors. Our compensation system is the best available when it comes to rewarding team building.
- You receive an automatic 30% commission when you have your own $100 autoship on file. Your autoship can be whichever product brands you choose and can be changed each month.
WHAT CAN ADDING YOUNGEVITY SOCIAL EVENTS DO FOR YOUR BUSINESS?
The most important part of our business for the long term, is duplication, but it all starts with an introduction. A Youngevity Social event is a fantastic way to introduce our product to others.
What can happen to your income as you embrace Youngevity Social?
Party averages are $500 per party.
If you hold 4 parties in a month 4 X $500 = $2000
30% commission = $600 additional in commissions you didn't have last month.
Teach your team to do the same and you'll see what can happen over a year's time.
HOW CAN YOU GET INVOLVED?
During the pilot phase you need to send an email to our SOCIAL SELLING DEPARTMENT with your name, email address and Youngevity ID, and they will set up your account. Then ask a member of our team to add you to the Social Selling Facebook group. You'll begin receiving email communication, you'll obtain an account that enables you to enter your party orders and access host rewards, and you'll start seeing great tips shared by those who are also part of Youngevity Social.
WHAT RESOURCES DO YOU NEED?
Below are some basic resources to make your IN-HOME or ONLINE events a SUCCESS!
TIPS FOR BOOKING
Booking parties can be fun if you are excited about the products and activities you'll be sharing. When you're getting started, it's often best to set up a day or a block of time that you can have a little "Booking Blitz".
As you begin to make calls to find hosts here are some tips that can help you with great results:
#1 Create your list ahead of time. Start with people who've expressed interest in the past, people whose parties you've attended, and customers who love the product, and make sure their contact information is handy.
#2 Create an "Open Date" calendar. Take a look at your calendar over the next 3 months and decide which dates and times you are "Open" for events. If someone says they'd like to host next month, give them 2 or 3 options you have available.
#3 Be excited and stay positive. STAND UP while you're making the call and let your potential host hear the enthusiasm in your voice and the excitement you have for sharing amazing product with their friends and family.
#4 Have a simple script. What are the first sentences you will say? What are the points you want to bring up in the call? Which product line are you focusing your party on? What is the next step after the date is booked? Know all of that before you call and have it written on a notepad in front of you.
$5 DO IT. Start with people you think are most likely to say YES. Keep it simple. Don't over analyze things, or over prepare.
The hardest part is the FIRST STEP. Take things one step at a time and you'll find the success you're looking for.
Working with a host can be a really fun part of our business. An enthusiastic and motivated host can be the difference between a successful event and one that doesn't achieve the results you'd hoped for. Coaching a host on their event can help them achieve the sales goals that they set, and can help you grow your business as well.
