Q: Are there stores to buy your products? Where can I buy Youngevity supplements?
A: There are no retail stores for these products. Our products can be purchased online through our website, or you can contact one of our distributors and buy from them.
Q: Is Youngevity and this opportunity a pyramid scheme?
A: No, it’s a independent distributor commission plan built on a platform and company of solid health protocols developed by a life-long advocate of health, a doctor, and brilliant entrepreneur. Pyramid schemes are nothing more than the exchange of money. Youngevity has been around since 1997, is a premium health supplement producer, profitable, ethical, and publicly traded on the stock exchange.
Q: Why is Youngevity a network marketing based company?
A: Youngevity is a profitable publicly traded company like many others. The difference in Youngevity is the structure of its employees and distribution method. Some large companies will outsource to other companies the distribution, warehousing, repackaging and reshipping behind large marketing and advertising campaigns. Youngevity uses its Associates, YOU, as the marketing, advertising, referral, distribution and warehousing.
The commissions YOU earn is how Youngevity pays for this critical aspect of its operations. Youngevity used to have a conventional business model in the late 90′s and early 2000, but switched business models after seeing greater success with a short trial of network marketing.
The reason network marketing works is because its associates can introduce, educate, demonstrate and testify to the effectiveness of the products on a personal level – something a print or television ad cannot do.
In 2012 Youngevity merged with Financial Destination, a network marketing management firm, and has since grown bigger and faster than ever before. Network Marketing works for the producer and all its associates – especially when the products being sold are superior than anything else conventionally available in stores.
Q: Where are the supplements produced?
A: Youngevity (mineral) supplements are primarily derived from a shale mine in Utah. Shale is a fine-grained, clastic sedimentary rock composed of mud that is a mix of flakes of clay minerals and tiny fragments (silt-sized particles) of minerals. Shale is decayed organic plant matter in which we then refine, filter, measure, and package. The reason million+ year old shale deposits are the best source of minerals is they have been untouched by any negative influences introduced by humans. Old is good. Along with precisely the correct amount of other vitamins (from GMO free fruits and vegetables) to create the only true well balanced multi-vitamin-mineral supplement available for purchase on the planet. It also tastes great!
Q: How do I Become a Member Online?
A: There are 2 main methods for signing up online:
· Contact your referring Distributor and they can sign you up online
· Click on your referring Distributor’s picture and it will take you directly to their website where you can click on “Join”.
Q: Where do I find information about building my own web site?
A: Youngevity provides free replicated websites to all Distributors and offers the option to upgrade to a Pro account, at anytime, for a small annual fee. We strongly encourage Distributors to upgrade to the Pro account, which gives you access to many professional built tools, at a fraction of the price it would cost to build them yourself.
