Build Your Business with the Young Living Facebook Service

1 August 8, 2013 - Archive

More and more Young Living distributors are discovering how social media can help build and strengthen their businesses and how easy establishing an informative, relevant, and supportive online presence can be with our new Facebook service! This service, launched at the 2013 International Grand Convention, offers:

  • Engaging, Young Living-related content posted automatically to your Facebook business page three times per week
  • Three content-rich tabs, each of which provides a link that enables your Facebook fans to sign up as a distributor or customer in your organization
  • A choice of many professionally created, Young Living-branded cover photos

The service can add these exciting features to an existing Facebook page or implement them on a new Facebook page for only $59.95 annually. To sign up, visit youngliving.com/facebookservice. There, you will find a brief video that will explain the service in detail.

Here is an example of what your Facebook page will look like with the new service:

 

 

What our Members are Saying
Over 1,000 people have signed up for the service so far, and it has received rave reviews. Here are a few comments we have received by e-mail and on Facebook:

“The service has been phenomenal!  It has grown my fan base and has created more free time for me to focus on team coaching rather than finding, reading, and posting content!” – Melissa Poepping, Young Living Gold

“I love it! You have taken a load off of me! Thanks!  Now I have time to tweet! LOL thanks for showing me that, too!” – Helen Shaw, Young Living Distributor

“[It is the] easiest way to boost your business efficiency! And the price is right, too! Thank you, Young Living!” – Devin Cote Bourland, Young Living Star

“I LOVE IT! I have been sharing my page and posting everywhere for others to see and sign up! Got a few into it already!” – Kateeri O’Brien, Young Living Distributor

Facebook Service Tips
If you have already signed up for the Facebook Service, here are a few tips to attract more fans and engagement on your page:

  • For your profile picture, use a photo of yourself or your business logo. This will make your page more professional-looking to current and prospective fans.
  • Make the name of your page unique, so it will stand out. Be sure to use the name of your business or a name that will identify you as a Young Living distributor. For example, you could use something like, “John Smith, Young Living Distributor.” Please do not name your page simply “Young Living” or “Young Living Essential Oils.”  This can make it harder for people to find your page, and they could get it confused with Young Living’s corporate Facebook page.
  • You will have complete administrative rights over your Facebook page after completing the Facebook Service sign-up process. If you see a post from the Facebook Service that does not go along with your social media strategy, feel free to delete the post.  Feel free to also write your own posts to notify your fans of events, announcements, and more.
  • A good rule of thumb is to never post more than 1-2 posts per day on your Facebook page. Any more posts than this may annoy your fans.
  • If you have a personal Facebook profile, invite your friends to “like” your Facebook business page. Send out a post on your personal profile containing the link to your new page.
  • Try using Facebook Ads or Promoted Posts to attract more Facebook fans. You can also set your own budget for how much you want to spend on these ads. For more information, click here.

    Can I create a page from scratch on Facebook for my YL oils biz or do I need to go through a special avenue with YL that is specific to its policies and procedures to do it?Im a YL distributor.

    • Young Living

      Hi Sherri, Thanks for stopping by. We recommend email in to our Conduct Department for a more in depth answer to your question at conduct@youngliving.com

  • Sonja Hutton

    I’d like to cancel my service; yet the ‘Email Support’ button is the only button on the younglivingsocial.com page that doesn’t seem to work. Can someone please contact me so that I can arrange to cancel my service. Thank you.

  • Christine Scott

    I just want the 3 purple tabs for people to click ~ as I am in Australia a lot of the YL posts are not relative to our country ~ I aslo snoted that not all posts are relative to YLEO and I really do not want other products posted on my YLEO page

  • Alice

    Is there a way to talk to someone about the service? I keep running into the same problem while trying to sign up. Please email me at Alice@EssentialFuture.com or call me at 973-809-5040. Thank you.

  • Judy Griffin

    I already have a Nutrition and Lifestyle Coaching Page as I am a Health coach. I can’t decide if I should make a new biz page or incorporate it into my existing one.

  • I was giving rave reviews like many others, until I actually read some of the posts (I had not taken the time to do this after getting the service, as I trusted YL to post appropriate content). YL corporate needs to oversee every post, as an outside service is contracted to run the YL Facebook service and it appears they are not always congruent with YL’s mission & message. Posts promoting other oil companies, stores that sell essential oils, and posts recommending things such as vinegar or baking soda for cleaning should not be used. We want to promote YOUNG LIVING’s essential oils & Thieves Household Cleaner for cleaning.

  • Karen

    I signed up for the face book at convention is this the same as this looks better

  • Suzanne Goulet

    I also have the same question as below. I have over 500+ followers on my existing FB YL page. Will I be able to transfer them over?

  • YL4U

    I have an existing Facebook Biz Account. Can we integrate this into the existing page as I already have fans there and don’t want to lose them :).
