Hand Sanitizer: More Essential Than Ever!
While our current Covid-19 incident has been difficult, it has been a learning experience nonetheless. And one thing that is certain is that we are likely to experience something like this again in the future. When that does happen, an item which we can all agree will be essential to have on hand is hand sanitizer. Hand sanitizer has become quite the commodity and the demand, and business opportunity, will only continue to grow.
No longer as abundant as before
Hand Sanitizer used to be a dime a dozen. You’d go to an expo and businesses would generously hand them out. You’d find them in goodie bags at events you’d attend. You’d pick them up from the dollar section at Target. It was an item that used to be abundant. Fast forward to present day, and we’re all rummaging through our car consoles, backpacks, and purses for them. MSN recently reported that suppliers are finding it hard to meet demand in the article, “Hand sanitizer will be hard to find for a long, long time.”
Quick & Convenient Way to Kill Germs
Although soap and water is the best option to help yourself get rid of unwanted germs, the fastest method is a quick application of hand sanitizer. Most alcohol-based sanitizers can kill 99.9% of harmful germs. And no matter where you’re at, you can help protect yourself against harmful bacteria.
The Youngevity Way
Now is the time to plan your approach to adding Youngevity’s hand sanitizers to your product offering. In just a few days, you’ll have sanitizing products you can share with your friends and family. Products that you can recommend because you trust Youngevity.
Start by making a list and gathering emails and cell phone numbers. You can even upload them now into the YoungevityGo2 app so they are ready to go. When the sanitizers are announced, find the social squares in the YoungevityGo2 app and send them to your contact list letting them know about this amazing new product and set up a time to share it with them.
The social squares are also great for sharing on social media. When you do, include a message with a call to action like: “Here’s one of those items we are all searching for. Comment below and I’ll reach out to you personally to help you get yours.” You can use the YoungevityGo2 app to help you with this as well.
In the meantime, you can also share how to make your own sanitizer using Youngevity Essential Oils. Here are a few recipes:
As we mentioned, the hand sanitizers are a few days away, but you can still connect now. Here are a few ideas.
- Reach out to family members and make sure they have plenty for their home. If they don’t, make sure they are on your list.
- Call your customers and let them know you are thinking about them. Keeping contact when you are not looking for them to order is key to developing those relationships. Then when the hand sanitizer is available, you’ll feel more comfortable approaching them with something like: “Mary, Youngevity just came out with a hand sanitizer and I know if you’re like me, you’ve been searching everywhere. Let me help you by showing you how to place your order today so you get your hand sanitizer soon.”
- And remember, reward points are a great way to entice people to order. Check and see if there is something they need to stock up on now that will help them earn reward points that they can use on future purchases.
We are the first to admit that these are difficult times, but that doesn’t mean you can’t continue to build your business, just in different ways.
Stay safe and healthy!
