Youmeco founder -Janice
I am Janice, from an ordinary family. I have no higher education. I started to work after I graduated from secondary school. When I get married and a child, I faced the burden of life. At that time, I was unable to meet the life requirements and ofen worried about money. In order to earn more income, I started to join direct selling as my part-time job. It was not easy for me to have full-time and part-time job. I was very busy with my jobs. I cannot take care my family as well. So in the year of 2004, I started to work full-time in MLM industry. This career taught me a lot of sales skills, how to cooperate with others and work in a team. I have worked hard in this industry for more than 10 years. I faced ups and downs, changes in company system, product retention, team problems, etc. I cannot imagine how I came out from this predicament today, maybe is because I am a person who don’t want to admit defeat. In the year of 2015, I ended my MLM career, I started my own business. However, due to lack of experience, my business was not successful. But I have no give up to set up my own business. I would like to try again. 2 years ago, I chose health industry because I have more than 10 years experience in health industry, and I am more confident in health care market.
At the end of 2017, I decided to set up my brand - YOUMECO, where YOU is stand for you, Me is stand for me, Co is stand for cooperate. YOUMECO is a concept of cooperation between a team. More people join our team, more enrichmnet we get, and we will achieve more and go for a long way.
Why choose Grains as YOUMECO first product
Many people asked me why I chose grains as the first product of YOUMECO. It is because YOUME Grains is really nutritious and can help everyone to achieve healthy. As we know breakfast is very important, but how many people are eating the healthy breakfast? In Malaysia, 30% of children go to school with empty stomach. For most people, their breakfast is high in calorie! This unhealthy diet causes many diseases and 3 highs. Through Youme Grains, we can solve the problem of no time to prepare breakfast. We can have a healthy breakfast drink in 2 minutes just with a cup of warm water to gain 6 nutrients our body needed. I wish everyone can be healthy, but not everyone afford to buy expensive health supplement. Now, we can have improve our health by drink Youme Grains, with an affordable price. Breakfast in very crucial. Cultivate a habit of taking breakfast makes us more strengthen, more spiritual and more better in all aspects.
After 1 year product launching, we have accumulated a lots of good reviews from customers. The most impressive testimonial is from Esther (Ipoh), who spine injured due to fall down, and need to rely on cruthes. She cannot stand from bed herself. She cannot go for work. Her friend recommended her to drink Youme Grains. After 2 months consumption, her spine became better, and she can working now! I am very happy. She became our excellent agent now.
Another testimonial is from Grace (Triang). her youngest son was very thin, no appetite and often get sick. After 1 month consumption of Youme Grains, his appetite became good, eat in normal portion. Now he gained 2kg and no more get sick. Youme Grains is really good, it helps in enhance gastrointestinal function.
How to change from traditional marketing to online marketing
Due to the experience of traditional marketing, we sold the products directly to shops which had cooperation before, such as organic shop, pharmacy, medicinal stores, vegetarian restaurants. After 6 months of hard work, we successful cooperated with more than 100 dealers, but we faced problem at this time. YOUMECO is a new brand, we only used RM50000 to start this business. We have no extra money to advertise our product. Besides that, the dealers have 30 to 60 days to make payment. Without advertisment, nobody knows and buy eventhough that is a good product. The dealers always said: nobody buy your product, please take it back. When I saw my produst is covered by dust, I think I must change! But how to sell product in insufficient fund?
After think twice, I decided to give up traditional wholesale method. I changed to online business. Because the product is not famous, seldom people want to be dealer. Many people rejected me but I have no give up. I believe I can do it. On june 2018, I once again introduce product to a friend who is doing online business- Karen. She wants to buy for her daughter because the good nutrients and mouthfeel really touch her heart. She believe this product can create a good sales in online business. From that moment, we started to recruit online dealer. We successful recruited 100 dealers in 3 months! We sold out 1600 boxes of Youme Grains in 1 month! We believe team work can make the product famous. And now we have 200 online dealers. We will move forward and lead more dealers to join us.
How to build a team
Because the online business marketing model involves a lot od cooperation between people. The trust, tolerance and communication are the key to success. When someone is willing to join us as dealer, that is mean she/he believe that we can lead them to a better future. So we have monthly activities with dealers, such as discussion, activities planning, problems solving, etc.
There was unhappy thing happened in our team. When the dealer has a good ability, there is no problem in sales. But is the dealer with a good ability but poor attitude, that is very terrible. It will cause argument when they have different opinions. The problem will become complicated and cause team dismiss. I am very appreciate people who willing to learn. Good attitude is important than good ability.
Building a team is not easy. People who join you at first may not be accompany you to the end. Only those who can tolerate and understand each other, remember our vision and mission, willing to achieve target together, can be our permanent teammate. I thank you for those who coming to my team no matter temporary or permanently. I am grateful and cherish those who accompany me until now. I will try my best to make us become the brightest star!
The team is like a home. There must be a vulture of love and gratitude. This culture is the soul of the team. The biggest principal of our team is not to grab line, not to cut price, everyone support each other in product knowledge, testimonials. We share informations each other. I am very pleased to see everyone can hep each other just like a family. Our target - introduce the most healthy and natural Youme Grains to all families.
I am very grateful to my partner in my business set up. He is responsible for strategies, company directions and positioning. We trust each other and complement each other’s deficiencies. He always lead me to a better woman, who dared to dream. He gave me greatest encouragement, asked me do the things I scare and not confident. All of this made me became stronger, dare to challenge myself and overcome my fears. Actually all fears are come from ourselves when we have no confident. Just step out the first step and be prepare with everything. All the problems will be solved easily. A good sentence to be shared: keep thinking is a problem, when you action, there is a answer. Hesitation cause loss, action cause win. How much the execution power, how much you will gain!
