If you have any connection with UK home business opportunities, you have probably noticed that Younique Cosmetics is launching in the UK in October 2014, and you may have noticed a particularly large and visible team of recruiters called YouKLaunch.
What is Younique Cosmetics?
Younique Cosmetics is a young, vibrant and fast growing US cosmetics company, which is launching in the UK. Younique is best known for Moodstruck mineral pigments and 3D Fiber Lash mascara. You can see more about Younique on their website
What is YouKLaunch?
YouKLaunch was a website set up by a team of two Younique presenters in the USA, Kristin Hawthorne and her husband, in order to prerecruit UK presenters into Kristin’s team ahead of the UK launch. Would be presenters received their own website which could be used to attract others into their Younique team. YouKLaunch members also received a whole host of training and promotional materials, including all of the images on this blog post.
Kristin’s husband has worked in direct sales for many years and has helped many direct sales companies manage their prelaunch into other countries – if anyone knows how to play by the rules and do a professional job it is the YouKlaunch team, and these websites and training materials were excellent.
However, the problem with this prelaunch is that Kristin and her husband provided the websites to Kristin’s team only, as they were not working on behalf of the whole company. As a result those people who are not in Kristin’s downline complained about compliance, and eventually the weight of gossip and complaint brought the whole thing down.
If you want to see the whole story about the collapse of YouKLaunch then please see the full text that Kristin published on the YouKlaunch website for two days before she closed it down.
If you don’t want to read all that, a quick summary is that people who did not have access to a YouKLaunch prelaunch website because they were not in Kristin’s downline did everything they could to prevent the websites from remaining live and ultimately sabotaged the project.
So what now for all those would be Younique UK presenters, who were already in Kristin’s downline or who were thinking of joining it?
Here is the good news. Kristin and her husband have not abandoned us in the UK at all. Everything that they provided for people on the YouKLaunch website will still be made available, it will just be delivered in another way.
I am one of Kristin’s first generation UK downline, and as from 1st September I will be setting up a mailing list for peopleinterested in Younique either as customers or presenters. People who join this mailing list will receive all of the information and training materials that were on the original YouKLaunch site plus anything else that Kristin and her husband publish in September, plus a few extra bits of my own.
On 1st October I will be contacting everybody on my mailing list and asking them if they want to become a Younique presenter as part of my team,or if they wuld like to host a party and buy some products. There will be emails, training and plenty of information between now and then as to how this is going to work. Until that point there is no obligation – everything is provided for free to anyone who wants it.
After the official launch however, anybody who signs up in my organisation (under me or under one of my recruits) will be invited to a Facebook group and will continue to receive the great training. Anybody who joins with somebody else will have to leave the group at that point and rely on their own upline for further training.
I think that everything that Kristin and her husband has done up to now has been totally amazing and I can’t wait to see what they come up with next. I can’t wait to get started with Younique on 1st October and to lead my own team with Kristin’s help.
It’s a pity that the YouKLaunch website did not work out, but it will not stop us from becoming the biggest and best Younique team in the UK.
So please join my mailing list if you want access to a whole host of Younique training materials. Then you can decide for yourself on 1st October if you would like to be part of our growing successful team. While you are at it please feel free to share any of the lovely Younique images that are on this page.
