So you’re loving your oils and you want to share them with everyone! Love it, Share it!
A great way to share your love of Young Living is through a vendor event. With the fall season, there are many events coming up. People are excited to start shopping for Christmas and are especially excited about products that will support their health throughout the holidays.
Here is my list of everything you need to pack to have a successful vendor event without going crazy.
PREMIUM STARTER KIT
Absolutely bring your PSK with a diffuser. You want people to see exactly what they would get!
POWER STRIP/EXTENSION CORD
If you’ll have access to electricity bring an extension cord and a power strip so you can plug in your diffuser and a laptop.
It’s a good idea to have a laptop or other mobile device so people can signup right away online! If they walk away they usually will never do it on their own. Always bring the paper version for signing up too. These are great if the internet doesn’t work or they’re in a hurry and don’t want to sit at a computer for 15 minutes. Then you just take the paper home and enter all the info in online later that day. The paper signup document is in our facebook group files section.
People don’t want to stay at your booth long. The best thing to do is get their contact information so you can follow-up later. So have a drawing for something. Maybe a citrus oil, a DIY item you made, an enrollment voucher, etc. Then have them fill out slips of paper with their name and info (we have drawing entry form in the files section). “The fortune is in the follow up!” So head home and contact all those people offering to teach them a class, 1-on-1 meeting, etc.
A lot of people will want to just grab your info to look up more later. It’s also a good idea to have a list of your upcoming classes that they could attend. If you don’t have business cards, you could either print some on templates that you can buy at an office store; or just have your contact info on some oily-info handouts. It is also a great idea to set-up early so you can go around and introduce yourself to the other vendors and give them a biz card since they won’t get to see your booth during the event!
OIL INFO CARDS
We have created a 4×6 info sheet for each oil in the PSK. Print these either on paper or photo paper (they print to fit on 4×6 photos). I like to line them across the table and set each oil bottle on top. Then guests can easily open the bottle for a sniff while reading about its benefits.
Don’t be the expert. Bring along some great reference books, printed word documents, graphics from the YL Member Resources, etc. to easily answer questions for people. I have a few copies of my favorite graphics and the bullet point so if people signup they have information to take home right away. It is great for them to have something to reference when they get their kit, so they don’t forget everything they learned from you.
DECORATIVE & BONUS ELEMENTS
You don’t need to go crazy here, but a little color can help draw attention. I like to bring a chalkboard to write things on, a wooden crate to create some height, some color printed graphics (I always have the Head to Toe graphic from our files section to answer questions), and my cardboard towers that describe oils (sold by YL). I also bring other popular YL products like the Thieves cleaner, toothpaste, and Ningxia Red. I choose to also bring a roller bottle, V-6, capsules, a glass spray bottle, and glass drinking bottle so I can show them all the ways we use the oils!
These are dependent on where your event is. If it’s outdoors you may want to bring a pop up canopy to protect from the sun or rain. Also check with your event coordinator to know if they are providing tables and chairs or if you should bring your own.
Remember to oil-up before and throughout the event to support your mood, sociability, and so others can notice how great you smell 🙂 Good luck and have a great time. Just be yourself and others will be drawn to authenticity and your passion for the oils and the wellness they can create.
