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.
WHAT DO I DO OR SAY AT MY EVENT?
More training is coming soon here, but take a look at some of the basic training for various product brands.

Here is a recent announcement from TRACY COX, our latest SENIOR EXECUTIVE MARKETING DIRECTOR (SEMD) from "across the pond" as they say. First of all CONGRATULATIONS TRACY on your rank advancement, and next THANK-YOU for all you do for the team in Australia and New Zealand. Your help for others whether they are on your "team" or not, is appreciated by so many.
Hi everyone. Attached please find new updated & CHEAPER shipping rates between NZ & Australia for all Our Memories for Life (OMFL) orders. Rob Greer at our Auckland office has been working very hard to get these rates down and is now able to offer a new service at better rates, approx 25-30% cheaper. The key differences are that this new 'UNTRACKED' option takes slightly longer (6-10 working days rather than the 3-6 working days so not too much longer!), it is Untracked, (therefore Youngevity cannot accept any responsibility for missing parcels), and if you wish to have this shipping option, orders MUST be placed by either phoning, emailing or faxing the Auckland office and NOT via the online store. This has been put in place specifically for OMFL customers / distributors in Australia by popular demand recognizing that not always does a scrapbooker want to wait to use the FREE SHIPPING option with an autoship order (we're an eager bunch!!).
BENEFITS OF AUTOSHIP
AUTOSHIP is also a fantastic way to get FREE FREIGHT & I seriously encourage you to consider this. It is very different to the 'autoship of old' that we were used to in previous companies, so just in case you are not up with how it works, here's a few key things to note:
- YOU CHOOSE the products in your Autoship
- You can CHANGE it every month
- Autoship can be a mixture of all & any of the products in the Youngevity store whether it's just scrapbooking, or a combination of these, Vitamins, Skincare, Oils – whatever YOU choose!
- If you decide you don't want your Autoship to happen in a particular month, simply contact the office in Auckland & they will change the date for you!
- Autoship can be monthly, bi-monthly, quarterly, 4 monthly or 6 monthly & again the Customer Services ladies in Auckland (firstname.lastname@example.org or call 1-800-756-467 ) can help you with this! YOU can choose!
- Minimum order for FREE shipping is 100PQV so depending on the products you're ordering this may be $120-$160 or so worth of products, but the fact that you're saving on Shipping MUST be a bonus surely!
- YOU have complete control over YOUR Autoship so if you live in Australia or out of Auckland where freight charges are higher, doesn't it make sense to take advantage of FREE FREIGHT with a 100PQV Autoship?!
- To set up it’s easy – simply go into your back office, click on Autoship & follow the prompts!
For those who are not wanting to take advantage of free shipping through Autoship, download this file to see the new updated rates card. PLEASE NOTE again that if you wish to take advantage of the new UNTRACKED / cheaper shipping option, remember to contact the office with your order. Unless specified at the time of ordering, shipping will default to the original 'tracked', faster but more expensive way!
I hope this helps & we thank Rob Greer for his hard work in negotiating this. This has been set up primarily for Our Memories for Life & we're grateful for this.

Our last call for our Distributors in Australia and New Zealand was focused on OUR MEMORIES FOR LIFE. Rhonda Anderson and Suzanne Harris did a great job of sharing some of the basic philosophy behind some of the OMFL products.
Home office has made some great progress with getting the system in place, and Rhonda and Suzanne go through some exciting things we have coming up.
You can watch the recording right here. I apologize that a bit was cut off from the beginning.
I love summer, and I thought it would be fun to kick off the summer selling season with a little incentive for my organization, members of TEAM FUSION. It's focused around my favorite thing that Youngevity sells, the CEO MEGA PACK. Why is this my favorite? Because I love SO MUCH of what Youngevity has to offer, this is the BEST WAY to get the BEST VALUE on some of Youngevity's TOP PRODUCTS. They offer a variety of packs as well, which really meets the needs of our Distributors.
WHAT IS THE INCENTIVE?
It's simple. FILL OUT THIS FORM once you have:
-PERSONALLY ENROLLED a new distributor who purchases one of the CEO Mega Packs
-Help someone you've PERSONALLY ENROLLED in the past upgrade to a CEO Mega Pack
WHAT ARE THE PRIZES?
We will make prize drawings the entire month of JUNE 2015. Each time we have 10 new CEO or CEO upgrades that are entered into the form throughout the month, we will do a prize drawing from the sponsors names, and announce on the TEAM FUSION FAN PAGE.
We will also award prizes to:
1. The TOP VICE PRESIDENTIAL MARKETING DIRECTOR GROUP with the most CEO sign-ups or upgrades in their group in June. This team will be recognized at our LEADERSHIP SUMMIT event this fall, and will receive a PRIZE BASKET to share among their team at SUMMIT. If you don't know whose VPMD group you are in, check with your sponsor or an upline leader.
Who are the GROUP LEADERS?
Lisa Nelson Lisa Branch
Tanya Perrett Kim Klassen
Heidi Jackson Rhonda Anderson
Kristen Goodman. Sheri Meissner
Jeannette Bianchi Andrea Beauman
Helen Watt Cathy Miller
Maureen Feist Patty Hanson
Nanci Bottcher Elaine Vitito

Amy Storch Sarah Lee
Sheri Caulkins Janetta Anderson
2. The TOP 3 Distributors with the most sign-ups or upgrades.
- 1st Place Prize TBA - If the distributor in 1st place has at least 5 upgrades or new sign-ups, their prize will be a FREE DELTA flight to Leadership Summit in North Carolina, or Convention in SLC.
- 2nd Place - TBA
- 3rd Place - TBA
Let's have some fun adding new CEO's to our teams this month.
MORE ABOUT CEO
Another thing I love about the CEO Mega Packs, is that over half of the ways Youngevity pays, are based on being CEO Qualified. It's an important part of the compensation plan, and the sooner you purchase your CEO Mega Pack, the better it is for your business.
Learn more about the CEO PACK, and Compensation HERE.

PRODUCT, NATIONAL SCRAPBOOK DAY, MEMORY KEEPING AND MORE...
Rhonda Anderson, Keith Halls, Barbara Burnes, and I have recently had a number of conversations with people at our home office and also with a few leaders in Australia and New Zealand about what we can do to get things really in place for you. We discussed the obvious challenges of opening up product into a new country, and also discussed plans for future development. Not fun, I know, and we appreciate your patience. I want you to know, we are committed to doing everything we can to support you.
I’m sure you’ve heard by now that the US had a major strike at the shipping port we use to get products in and out of the US. This went on for quite some time, and the government intervened to help them reach an agreement. LEARN MORE ABOUT THE PORT STRIKE.
This definitely slowed down our ability to get some OMFL products into the US, and also obviously to AU/NZ. However, the light at the end of the tunnel was a welcome site. We will keep you updated as soon as we know any specific dates.
The MEMORY KEEPING division in YOUNGEVITY just hired a really key member of our office team. STACY CRONINGER joins us from Paper Crafts, Creating Keepsakes, and has a long list of experience. LEARN MORE ABOUT STACY CRONINGER. She is an incredible asset for the marketing of our memory brands. Every now and then something happens in a company that makes a big impact, and hiring Stacy is that, as experts in the industry are joining forces under the stability and ownership of Youngevity. This is THE PLACE to be right now. So happy you’re here!
NATIONAL SCRAPBOOK DAY is coming, and our marketing team at the home office and on TEAM FUSION are working on some materials to help make it an amazing event. We anticipate that you will have more product in your region in time for this day, so if you haven’t already, you may want to start sketching out a date to hold your own NSD events.
Hi, I'm Lisa! I have worked in the memory keeping industry for nearly 15 years, and now because of the merger of Heritage Makers and Youngevity, I get to enjoy an expanded product line and learn about so many unique and top quality products.
