You probably came over to this page because you desire to make money with your blog. Whether you have an established blog or you’re thinking about starting one, the desire to make a little money (or a full-time income!) sounds pretty good. I understand the attractiveness of being able to make money from blogging!
When I first started my blog, I thought it would be cool to make a little money someday. At the time I had no idea what options there were aside from ad revenue. After several years of blogging for fun (and to help the organic community that formed around the blog), I decided to monetize.
As of today, I’ve experimented with the standard ways to make money as a blogger and had success with several of them. But there’s one particular way to make money that’s more sustainable than the rest: being an Independent Distributor with Young Living Essential Oils.
Why Young Living?
First of all, the products are amazing. I don’t say that lightly. After trying thousands of dollars of supplements from many different companies while chronically ill, I have a pretty good understanding of what lives up to quality standards. I’ve done A LOT of research!
Young Living’s products are guaranteed to be the most pure, therapeutic grade products on the market. They have a Seed to Seal guarantee that ensures all products from supplements to essential oils to makeup all live up to their set of standards for quality. The company has been around for 25 years, so the products have been tested in an ongoing manner for all this time. Another cool thing: Young Living actually owns most of their own farms! You can even go visit one if you’d like. 🙂
Secondly, there’s real income potential here. The way multi-level marketing works is that you earn a commission on the orders for several generations below yours. You can direct your blog readers to Young Living’s products and if they join as wholesale members they can share with their friends. There’s potential for your team to grow exponentially and for you to make more money and impact more people. It sort of snowballs (or compounds) so the amount of income continues to increase exponentially.
Once people try and love Young Living’s products they usually want to order more. There’s a monthly ordering program called Essential Rewards which gives you money back (store credit!) to spend on more oils, supplements, and other personal care products. When you have a lot of people on Essential Rewards you’ll be getting monthly income from those orders.
I’ve personally changed my buying habits to get a lot of what I need from Young Living instead of from the grocery store. This helps me to use better quality products for my health and also earn major rewards back. You get 10% back in the first 3 months on Essential Rewards, 20% back during months 3-24, and then 25% back for all months after that.
How much can you make as an Independent Distributor with Young Living?
Income depends on the volume of orders in your group (or team). Each time you enroll someone as a wholesale member (which means they buy a starter kit of oils), you receive $50. Then depending on where you place them in your organization you will get a percentage of their overall organization’s volume. I can explain more of the compensation plan with you in detail if this is something you’re interested in.
You may be wondering how fast people achieve the various ranks listed above. Well, it really depends on how you connect with your audience and share about essential oils. Some people get all the way to Royal Crown Diamond in a year and a half! Others take a while and get up to the ranks of Silver or Gold where they make significant, sustainable income that keeps coming in for them. It depends on your goals and what you put into it.
It also matters who you sign up under! When you sign up with someone who will teach you how to connect with your audience to share in a meaningful way, you have better chances of getting up in ranks. As a PR strategist and successful blogger, I know what it takes to help you identify your audience and find out how to share with them in an effective way. I can walk you through the ins and outs of creating a successful Young Living Business for blogging income.
Another fun thing! Our team gets free access to amazing stock photography of oils, which will make it super easy for you to share with your blog readers!
Is this some pyramid scheme?
This question makes me laugh a little every time, because I totally get the feelings of not wanting to participate in a multi-level marketing company. I mean, who hasn’t had old acquaintances contact you out of the blue on Facebook to tell you of some awesome product you just have to try?!
To answer your question, this is not a scheme. I use these products and love them. I also make money by sharing about them with my blog readers. It’s really a win-win! You tell your audience about something that can help them with their health (and also their income) and you earn more money to pay for your blog expenses and more. 🙂
On the Chronic Hope Wellness Team, we don’t recommend you get super salesy with your approach. We adhere to the mindset that it’s better to share than to sell. If you already have an established blog, this is an awesome opportunity to share some great tools with your readers. If you are just starting your blog, you can also share about oils with your community as you connect with them!
How to Join Young Living as a Distributor
I’m super glad you want to embark on this adventure because I believe it could mean awesome things for both your health and your finances!
You can either email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and say you want to join and I’ll send you a step-by-step guide, or follow the directions below! If you want to be a Business Builder, we should probably connect soon so I can be sure to place you in an optimal spot within my Young Living organization.
The first thing you need to do to join Young Living as a Distributor is purchase a Premium Starter Kit (This blog post explains everything that comes with the kit!).
I’m offering a special incentive for anyone who joins in November:
You will get $25 back via PayPal and an Essential Oils Reference Guide to help you learn how to use oils for various health challenges.
Plus, I’ll give you a free blog and social media review (something I charge my business clients $100 an hour for!) because I want to help you succeed at this venture.
Here’s how to order your kit:
As a member you’ll get a 24% discount for the rest of the year plus you’ll have the ability to start this as a business!
The number that should be entered as enroller and sponsor is 16686428.
Then, choose a Premium Starter Kit. This includes 11 essential oils, plus the diffuser, and a bunch of samples and information to get you started!
After you select your Premium Start Kit, click the box below, reading, “Use the selected Premium Start Kit as my first Essential Rewards order and sign me up for an Essential Rewards subscription.”
When you do it this way, you’ll get a free 5ml oil and $10 back from Young Living in Essential rewards. Once you get your business going, you’ll need to place a 100 PV order via Essential Rewards each month to get your commission checks, so starting now is a good idea since you get the freebies.
The 100 PV per month order (which is usually $100 worth of product) is the only requirement Young Living has for getting commissions. I see this as a pretty low business expense since I don’t have to carry inventory or worry about distribution. Compared to owning a brick-and-mortar store, this is very minimal. Plus, using Essential Rewards is the best way to start swapping out things you usually buy at the store for healthier options.
I can help you customize your Essential Rewards order for next month based on your wellness needs. Just let me know how I can help you do that to get the most out of your subscription!
With Essential Rewards you can earn commission checks but you also will get lots of rewards back, plus at least one free product each month. In addition, you’ll get 10% back in rewards (store credit!) for your first three months in Young Living, then it goes up to 20% back, and eventually 25%.
Once you’ve gone through the sign up process, be sure to send me an email and we can start working together to create a plan for how you can make this business work for you!
I’ll also get you your $25 back via PayPal and some other goodies.
We have tons of resources in private Facebook groups and online that I can’t wait to point you toward to help you get the most out of your Starter Kit and make the most of your Young Living Business!
