Why I Became a Younique Presenter
My friend Cathie was over last week and we were talking about Multi-Level Marketing Companies (MLMs) in general. I’ve got several friends who do various different ones (beauty products, money saving ones etc). As someone who’d like to build a passive income business, I’ve been on the look out for years. I needed to find one that was right for me, but expressed a desire to find one where I could get in at the ground level. By that I mean before everyone has already heard about it – or knew someone doing it already…
Cathie then mentioned a friend of hers in the Highlands, Joanna, who was doing “something to do with makeup” – according to what she’d read on her Facebook timeline.
So we had a look at Joanna’s timeline and there it was – Younique Products. It’s an American company that is two years old and already has grown to seventy-five million there, but has yet to launch here in the UK! It’s on target to being the fastest-growing Direct Sales company in history. That’s some feat!
“Wow this could be a good fit.” I thought to myself…
Not because I am a big make-up fiend, (if you know me, you’ll know I’m not super knowledgable on the matter), but because it’s an amazing opportunity. They market solely through Social Media (something I know a thing or two about) and they sell in various countries around the world.
My website soyouvebeendumped.com is global and what do women who’ve been dumped need after a break up? But a wee boost to their self-esteem. They need to feel sexy and empowered! Not just dumped women – but most women!
So I did what any self-respecting, potential, distributor (called “Presenters” for Younique) would do – I researched for days on end.
I learned that their biggest selling product is their Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes. They sell 15,000 of these bad boys a day and I want a piece of that action, my friends. I watched videos on how to apply it. I read countless reviews – most were positive (but not all)…and just tried to get a feel for the company.
I contacted one lovely girl – back home in the San Francisco Bay Area, Robin, and she spoke highly of Younique. It all started to sway me – even if still a little skeptical.
A few days later I spoke to Cathie’s friend Joanna at length, and by the end of the call I said I was interested in being a part of her team! I signed up when we hung up and I am happy to report that I am number nine for her team, in the 3000s for the UK, and in the 120,000 range globally.
7 Reasons I Decided to join Younique:
Two days ago, I decided to become a Younique Presenter for a variety of reasons and here are some of the main reasons below…
1) Low Barriers To Entry.
Younique has a low sign-up rate. It costs just £69.00 +£10.00 for the Presenter Kit’s shipping. That was affordable to me – so I figured, in the worse case scenario, at least I’d walk away with a bunch of make up and a cool box. (See pic)
In the box is “Everything You Need to Get Started”:
- 3D Fiber Lashes
- Uplift Eye Serum †
- Glorious Face & Eye Primer
- Lucrative Lip Gloss – Luxe ‡
- Moodstruck Precision Pencil Eye Liners – set of 3 (Perfect, Pristine, Prim)
- White Status Charm (on purple ring)
- Free business website
- Instant Access to the Younique Virtual Party System™ (start hosting parties immediately)
- £20 GBP Younique Cash on your birthday, annually
- PayQuicker Younique bank account
- Presenter Guide
- All of this comes in our signature black faux leather, embossed Younique case
I can’t wait to receive that kit! What fun!

2) A Great Mission! I liked really like Younique’s mission. So much so – it’s in perfect alignment with mine for So You’ve Been Dumped. Effectively they aim to “uplift, empower, and validate women everywhere”. You can read more about Younique’s Mission here…and as I said, it’s a similar aim – which I want for the women and the men on my site, too!
3) Satisfaction Guaranteed! (Updated) Before I tried the products, I read hundreds of reviews across the web (not all favorable I hasten to add!) It was more positive than negative out there. Most-importantly, because they want their customers to be so happy with their products, they have a good money-back guarantee. (Since I’ve joined I’ve tried MOST of the products and am very happy with all of them so far!)
4) Younique Mostly Markets Online.
Unlike many of other MLMs it’s among the first who do all their promotion totally online via Social Media. Hey ho, guess what, I am a Social Media Trainer – so it sure feels like a good fit that way too! So basically all my parties are online. Here is the link to Thea’s Younique Launch Party!
If you’re in the US/Canada or Australia/NZ, you can buy already, but for UK it’s pre-orders only just now. They’ll be shipping products from 1 Nov. How exciting is that??
5) Younique has a Proven Track Record.
Well, ok, they’re not as long established as some of your other MLM beauty brands, but the fact they’ve grown as far as they have in two years is super-encouraging, to me. I suspect they’ll still be here this time next year which is a good thing.
6) Youniques’ Structure’s Enticing.
You start at White as an “Entry Presenter” and work your way up the way to Black an “Exclusive Presenter”. It’s a transparent and simple plan. Well almost…I like that it’s not that you’re just earning on the recruits you bring in but the ones they bring in too, and the ones they bring in, and so on! Deep levels!
7) The Royalties!
When you make a sale, Younique thinks you deserve your money as quickly as possible! Receiving royalties is quick and easy and within three hours of making a sale! My earnings from sales are deposited into my very own PayQuicker account!
To be honest that shocked me a little. It sounded a little too good to be true – so I was thinking “what if people return the items?” But Joanna assures me they’d just settle (deduct) royalties with future sales on my account. Awesome!
Now I am YOUNIQUE – You Can Be Too 🙂
So with all the info, I was happy to give it a whirl! Apart from my time and £79.00 ($99) – I’d really have nothing to lose, and everything to gain. If it sounds like something you want to try too, wherever you are in the world – you can be apart of my team. I’d love to have you. I don’t expect I’ll be pushing the team aspect too much. My whole ethos for this is NO HARD SELL – #nohardsell. No one likes pushy people or hard sales so this will be case of softly softly. So click the image above or join Younique Team Thea here.
I’ll write again this weekend – or early next week – when the kit arrives. Hey check out my presenter’s kit “unboxing video” – though some of the contents have changed.
