What Will You Post On Your Soap Box?

How’s business? Sometimes, in the summer, sales for Direct Sales Reps start to slump and during a pandemic it can get even harder. So, today, your FindSalesRep Support Team was racking their brains, trying to figure out what people are spending their money on during this summer besides masks, toilet paper and outdoor things to keep their families entertained.

Browsing pinterest told us that people are spending a lot of time and money looking at kitchen, food and diet stuff  https://www.pinterest.com/topics/popular  Does your company have products that can help people take care of themselves, feed their families and maximise their health?  If so, it’s time to POST to Your FindSalesRep WALL!

Where’s Your WALL? YOUR FSR WALL is YOURS and you should Login to Your Listing at FindSalesRep.com and look for the “Post to Your Wall” link. Your post will be shown on our home page, plus we pin your posts to our Pinterest “FindSalesRep Wall Posts” board.

When you post to your wall, we’ll pin your post to our popular Pinterest board. Some posts have become wildly successful. For example, over the past few months this post about Men’s hair care has been seen 9,600 times, been viewed close up 436 times, saved 12 times and people have clicked on the link 26 times! Google and other search engines typically charge dollars per click for targeted clicks like this. Posting to your wall is more than worth your time!

Yup, go now. Post often using words and pictures that people will be looking for when they need what you’ve got and then… Get Found.
post on your soap box

Consider it your own personal soap box. A place where you can share EVERYTHING you love about your company and the products you can’t live without. Yup, it’s all about you and it can help you Get Found.

Listings with more wall posts get more visitors and thus have the potential to make you more sales. So, start now, adding Pictures, Descriptions and KEYWORDS to YOUR FSR WALL!  On Your Wall, let people know what you have in stock, about new products or about sales or special offers. Tell them what they need to know about you, your company and your products by using keywords that will lead them straight to you.  Then, show them before and after photos or pictures from a new catalogue. Pictures say a thousand words. Share them!

What do you want to share with the World?  Here are some ideas:

  • Post about your favorite products.
  • New product images with descriptions of the products benefits, or why you like the product.
  • Updates about your company’s business opportunity and compensation plan.
  • Inspirational quotes and images.
  • Product and Opportunity Videos (use the “Link” button to post YouTube video links).
  • Business Tips for Other Network Marketers
  • Links to any Articles you’ve written, or articles you like.
  • Pictures of you using your favorite products.

THEN… if you want to take it to the next level, here’s a great tip. Once you make a post, you can click to view just that post. Then… click the Pinterest share button – that way you get exposure on Pinterest and Pinterest also links back to your posting on your FindSalesRep Wall! So really, this is a Twofer Tip and can help you Get Found!

You can also share the same link on Facebook, twitter, etc. This is great because it gives you one place to link to from all of your social networks (so you can post once, and share everywhere).

FTC Sent Warning Letters to Multi-Level Marketers

You LOVE your company. Their products have changed your life and you want to tell the wold your story. Telling your story comes naturally, because it’s your story. It’ a gathering of details that you actually experience. You are encouraged to share those experiences with the people in your lives. You share them by world of mouth, and sometime that means in print. You’re a great marketer, so your posting to you facebook page(s), your twitter account, your Instagram, Pintrest, Whatsapp, Skype, Zoom and a million other places on your computer, phone and tablet. Your company encourages you to share your story.

RIGHT?

Maybe.

Recently, the Federal Trade Commission has sent out warning letters to many multi-level marketing companies. These MLM’s have been asked to remove and address claims about their products’ ability to treat or prevent coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) or about the earnings people who have recently lost income can make, or both. This is an ongoing efforts to protect consumers from COVID-19 scams.

The letters address specific claims made by the companies or their participants (YOU) in social media posts and videos posted online, including claims made in Spanish.

The warning letters include :

  • A Spanish-language social media post promoting Vivri USA, LLC that said, “Take care of your health, your body, avoid many diseases many viruses, since this virus and many others are here to stay, coronavirus, influenza, flu, we should nourish our cells, our immune systems, reinforce it with the best nutrition system in the world …”
  • A social media post that said, “#VIRUS_CORONA Worried? I’ve been boosting my immune system for several years with high-quality Plexus supplements. You can too! #Plexus provides excellent all-natural supplements that truly work. Be sensible –not fearful. Scientifically formulated & doctor-approved! Ask me!”
  • A video promoting The Juice Plus Company that said, “There are a lot of people out there who have lost income … You may want to build a side income, you know, make $500 a month, $1,000 a month or more. There’s no ceiling on this. It’s whatever you want it to be … What would you like this do to for you? … Maybe it could cover one of your bills, like a car payment. Or enjoy more time and financial freedom. I can tell you those are both possible at the same time because I’ve been living that for the past eight years, and it’s wonderful to be able to offer that to other people.”

Some of the FTC sent the letters are listed below. Not all of the letters are listed here. To find out if your company was sent a letter, please visit the FTC website.

Both Health and Earnings Claims:
Isagenix International LLC
The Juice Plus+ Company

Earnings Claims:
Melaleuca, Inc.

Health Claims:
Youngevity International, Inc. (this company was warned about claims in Spanish and English)
Vivri USA, LLC (this company was warned about Spanish-language claims)
Plexus Worldwide, LLC

 In these letters, alleging unsubstantiated claims, companies are warned to remove any all such claims from the internet. That includes any posts that their Independent Reps have made. That’s YOU and there are a lot YOU. 

What you are sharing with your friends, teams and the wold is really important, it’s your story, but is it endangering your company? Maybe…

When you state or assert that something is the case, you typically are defending your position with your own evidence, your story. But… according to the FTC you are making that claim without providing evidence or proof. This can put your company in jepardy.

How can you avoid getting yourself and your company in trouble?

It’s not a simple question to answer, we think that Thatcher Tech has the best advice you can find on the internet.  In NOVEMBER 20, 2019, they wrote a post called DIRECT SELLING LAW 101: HOW TO KEEP THE REGULATORS HAPPY”. In this post, they’ve provided advise to help you navigate the current regulatory environment. We suggest you read the section of the article,  What are some of the ways that distributors typically run afoul of FTC regulations?”

Let us know what you think.

Meet Lindsay Larocque ~ doTERRA Consultant in Timmins, Ontario

I am a mom of a beautiful 6 years old little girl and unlike any mom I only do what I think is best for my child. My daughter struggled with what seemed to be an never ending cough that only occurred at night since she was three. I did everything I could possibly do brought her to the doctors constantly they eventually put her on puffers no change, she had an allergy test done, put on antibiotics, got everything checked nothing could explain it. In the end all the doctorsI brought her to said pretty much the same thing she just keeps getting colds one after the other it was never ending, that is until I seen an advertisement about essential oils and after doing days of research I made my decision to purchase some and I am so glad I did. ❤

Lindsay Larocque

After about 5 days of using the oils she almost completely stopped coughing and by day 10 ish she completely stopped coughing and was able to sleep through the whole night without waking up due to a coughing fit and what a difference that made.

Ever since I seen the effects the oils have had on my daughter I decided to try them myself and that’s when I completely fell in love with them. They worked for anything I used them for wether I felt nauseous, had a headache or and sort of pain I rubbed the necessary oils on and they worked like a charm.

Since essential oils have done so much to help me and my family I decided to educate myself the best I can so I could help others learn how to do the same. Visit Lindsay’s doTERRA Website

Karen Larochelle ~ Arbonne Consultant in Grafton, Ontario

My name is Karen Larochelle. I am a Stay-At-Home Mom, Wife, Daugther, Sister, Friend, Volunteer, and…an Arbonne Independent Consultant! My life has changed drastically over the past couple years. For the past 10 years, I had been enjoying a fantastic and successful career in the sales & service industry. I had two sons (now I’ve got THREE!), a fabulous Husband and the life I had always dreamed of. Well…sort of. When I was young and pictured my future I realized it was always in two separate “silos”. I pictured an exciting career learning about science & medicines, travelling and succeeding; while I was also dreaming of a life with my family, sitting down to home-cooked meals, playing outside, rolling on the carpet with tickle fights and volunteering in their school classrooms. The more closely we looked at our lives, the more we realized that one dream (career) was becoming increasingly demanding of my time and energy, and the other dream (family) was diminishing due to rushed lives, quick meals, daycare drop-offs and getting back onto the laptop after dinner. My husband and I took a good look at our lives, what we wanted to prioritize, and decided that I would leave my career and stay at home with the kids. We realized how blessed we were to even be able to make that decision. If that wasn’t a big enough change for our family, we, at the same time, also moved away from my home town and started a new life out in the countryside.

I must admit, this was a wonderful change in all of our lives! Now we have the time to play together, talk about our day over a home-cooked meal and actually eat breakfast together without dealing with “the morning rush”. However, what about my other dream? What about the exciting world of business? Is there a way to still be the #1 diaper changer, meal-maker, coach, lego-builder AND get the feeling of accomplishment by also being important to a corporation?

Karen LarochelleWhile I was at an Arbonne “Swiss Beauty Workshop” that a friend of mine was hosting, I was really listening about the important (and surprising!) information being shared about skin care, and Arbonne’s philosophy of Pure, Safe & Beneficial products. I was even skeptical at first. The products couldn’t be as amazing as they said they were…however, after purchasing a few products, then hosting my own workshop in order to get the whole RE9 anti-aging line from my host rewards…I was hooked. The products ARE unbelievable! Arbonne was quickly becoming a passion of mine, and so why not share this with others? Even now, after being an Independent Consultant for almost two years, I am only just beginning to visualize what this company has to offer, for my future, and my family’s future. Expanding my business into the Health & Wellness side of Arbonne has been very exciting!

Arbonne has helped me be able to fulfill both of my dreams of family and a career and not only be important to a corporation…but actually OWN my OWN business! Arbonne has allowed me to be present in all aspects of my family’s life. I work when I want, and as much as I want. Also, very importantly for me, Arbonne allows me to get out of my “mom jeans” and put on my pantyhose! To share my passion for learning about skin care, about what we are putting on our skin…on our childrens’ skin, into our mouths and even ultimately, how we are earning the dollars that we put into our bank account. Sound good to you? Come join me! This is the most fun you’ll ever have earning a living. Visit Karen’s Arbonne Website
