Are you considering becoming a Hugh & Grace Advocate? Or have you been burned by social selling in the past? The conversation at Hugh & Grace is different. As a new Hugh & Grace Advocate, I’ve done my darndest to spell out why this opportunity is worth considering. I hope you keep reading. In this blog, I’m sharing ten reasons to Join Hugh & Grace right now.
Hugh & Grace is a company building something meaningful. Our primary focus isn’t sales. It’s knowledge, sharing, and awareness. You are magnetic when you’re on a mission or have a calling. People want to know what you are doing. Our society is talking about toxins, but the conversation about hormone disruptors is just beginning. Sharing hormone health will be everything in the next decade and years to come. This opportunity is continuous learning, endless social media content, and meaningful discussion. Talking about this feels good, not gross.
A Modern Approach to Social Selling.
There’s no MLM or direct sales stigma because we use a hybrid model. The compensation structure is entirely different. Sara Jensen has said, “trust is the foundation of every relationship. We need to be honest and direct about how we operate our business.”
- Advocate: Individuals who share the Hugh & Grace mission and products with their network. (25% discount, up to 40% commission, and access to the #betterthanclean community)
- Retail Advocate: Service-based establishments that sell Hugh and Grace in-store, online, or both. (30% wholesale discount)
- Affiliate Advocate: Influencers who use their platform to share our mission and sell Hugh & Grace products. (20% discount, personalized 10% discount code, 20% commission)
In addition, here are a few other things that I think make Hugh and Grace more modern than any direct sales company I’ve seen:
- 25% commission rate no matter how the customer purchases plus additional sales bonuses by volume. Their “you plus two” bonus available at certain ranks is in cash and doesn’t have to be applied to a car or lifestyle. Invest it!
- Two advocates per household. In other words, you can enroll your spouse/partner and work the business together.
- You never “promote out” an advocate. All your directs stay direct to you and always “count” toward structure and volume. If you know, you know.
If anyone tells you differently, they are lying. Hugh and Grace still has less than 3000 advocates. Now is the best time to market the Hugh & Grace products and opportunities because no one has heard of it. Leaders are building a foundational business now with Hugh & Grace. People will hear about Hugh & Grace and want to try these simple swaps for their health. Once they do, they will fall in love because the products perform. You are positioned for greatness by being the first in your circle to share and recommend these products and this business opportunity.
A Culture of Inclusivity.
The products are gender neutral and address a topic that affects everyone. Ben Jensen says, “health is for everyone.” Hugh & Grace Advocates help you reduce chemical exposure by simple swaps. There’s no pressure to go all in or use the line exclusively. If you have a product you love, keep using it, we won’t stand in your way. Instead, we offer alternatives and education without pressure. There is no fear-based marketing, and Hugh & Grace isn’t going to take a political stance or ask you to do that.
Two business centers per household are allowed in this compensation plan. So, you can work this business WITH your spouse, partner, homie/lover/friend. Many spouses and partners have already remarked that they feel comfortable attending Hugh & Grace events because the atmosphere is different. In other words, come as you are; you can sit with us.
In addition, teams collaborate here. There are no celebrities within the company, and directors help other directors. We have cross-team collaborations, and we all work together.
Simple Product Library.
The product line is simple, easy to use, and easy to learn and recommend to others. There are four products! There is no need for a quiz, 100 questions, or a ton of practice or upline help to know what to recommend to your clients. Yes, the product line will grow to include more hormones safe everyday options. But, Sara has said that Hugh & Grace “will never have 1000 products.”
System For Success.
Hugh and Grace takes your time and personal development seriously, and so do their leaders. Every Monday, you will receive an email with all the tools you need to move the needle in your business that week. Corporate provides a product-related and opportunity-related event for you to invite to every week and other ways to plug in and train as a community several times per week. Whether you are new or have been with Hugh and Grace since launch, these are important events to participate in.
If you choose to work with me, you will also have access to all the Rise Culture tools, including Move the Needle Monday, Private Thought Model Coaching, and the 30 Days To Impact program for onboarding. You can check out Rise Culture here. If you have any questions about those programs, make sure to reach out.
The cold hard truth is that brands buy their way into publications. But, Hugh & Grace receives organic accolades. Tracey Anderson purchases the products. She’s Gweneth Paltrow’s trainer (I mean, have you heard of Goop?!) and says she gets sent everything for free and is constantly asked to represent products. Tracey raves about Hugh & Grace without compensation. Rachel Zoe loves the products so much that she decided to become an investor. Organic marketing is everything.
Customer Focused Business.
Hugh & Grace is all about the customer. Customers can get 10% off their first order with a referral code and bank product credits for referring their friends. Inexpensive shipping is the norm (or free depending on the order), no forced auto-ship, and gift cards are available! Customers can set up an “auto-renew” for an extra discount if they like, but there is no fee to do so, and they can cancel at any time with the click of a button. For Advocates, there is a cap on how much of your orders count towards your volume. You can’t buy your way to a rank, and you won’t be offering “bulk orders” or discounts to your customers. That’s a good thing! The product prices are reasonable anyway, and our mission, not a promotion, drives us.
Not a Beauty Brand.
Hugh & Grace is NOT a beauty company. We are a family wellness company focused on creating hormone-safe products that are luxurious, high performing, yet so very simple. Our products certainly make for shiny legs and clear, hydrated skin. But, I’ve struggled to keep up with the Joneses with a previous beauty company, been told to use filters and make sure I’m looking polished whenever I leave the house or post on social. Most people don’t want to join a hot mess express and probably won’t be lining up for your product if you look like a trash heap. But, there’s something to say for authenticity and showing up unfiltered. With Hugh & Grace, your makeup-free face can be your brand. We’re all-natural, and you can show up that way if you want to. Share the mission in a meaningful way, and you’re golden. Talk about refreshing.
The products are TSA-friendly and already in travel size. Your products won’t be begging you for travel size, have to order glass bottles off amazon, or use something else while on vacation. Your customers won’t be begging for travel-sized options or missing their products while on vacation. The products are packaged sustainably in plastic-free, recyclable material and ship two-day priority. Even the shipping boxes and materials are designed and packaged to reduce waste (but still look beautiful and on-brand, if you ask me).
“When creating products free from toxins and harmful chemicals, the packaging is just as important as the formulation. Toxins in commonly used packaging, such as BPAs and parabens, can seep from the packaging into the formulation it contains. Hugh & Grace’s packaging is recyclable and free from toxins and harmful chemicals, which helps to maintain the integrity of our #BetterThanClean mission.”
