Tips for Marketing Your MyNSP Site

Do you have a Nature's Sunshine Business and a MyNSP site?
I recommend all NSP members enjoy the wonderful opportunity you have to share these terrific products with others. If you do not yet have a www.mynsp.com site and would like to have one, follow the link and please don't forget to give my name and sponsor number as the NSP member who referred you. Karen Doolan #983219-3. Please let me know if you need any help with your site and your business.

The following Information was published in the members section of www.mynsp.com

  • Tips for Marketing Your MyNSP Site
    The most important thing is to let people know about your web site by putting your web site address everywhere. This is an easy thing to do that is often overlooked. Include your web site address on your business cards, stationery, flyers, newsletters, etc. http://www.mynsp.com/youraddress

  • Email people about your web site. Email is an affordable and easy way to get your message out. Here’s an example of an email that promotes your website.

Dear Jerry,

You should visit my personal Nature’s Sunshine Web site at: http://www.mynsp.com/myaddress.

My site has Nature’s Sunshine products from A to Z and Weekly Specials. The specials change weekly so be sure to keep coming back.

If you have any questions about the products, you can contact me. I’m here to help. Nature’s Sunshine has really helped improve my health and well-being. I’m sure you will see results just like me. I am certified and have the knowledge to help you select the best products for you.

Sincerely,

Joe Web

NSP Herb Specialist

http://www.mynsp.com/myaddress

(999) 999-9999

If you have already sent an email letting people know about your web site, then you should tell them what this week’s specials are. Or, you can send stories about customers who have experienced the benefit of Nature’s Sunshine Products.

  • Include your web site address in all of your emails. In all of your email messages, not just those about your NSP business, be sure to include your web site address. One way to do this is to include your Web site address in your signature. I sign my email with:
    My Name

    My Phone Number

    http://www.mynsp.com/myaddress

    Most e-mail programs such as AOL, Netscape, and Outlook allow you to designate a "signature" to appear automatically at the end of each message you send.
  • Capture e-mail addresses of people you know. Make sure that when you meet people who are prospective customers that you collect their email addresses, just as you do phone numbers. Some people are happier to give their email address out rather than phone numbers or addresses because they consider it less personal. On your personal web site, the “contact me” form asks for the customer's email address. Make sure that when you get an email sent from your site, you save these email addresses in your customer list. It’s a great idea to send regular email to your customers. Let them know about new products and specials as well as events that you can post on your site.

  • Submit your site to Search Engines. You can get your site listed on Search Engines. This can be very helpful for getting people you do not know to your site. Yahoo is a popular search engine to submit your site to. You can access their submission page at:
    http://add.yahoo.com/fast/add?486754

  • Also try Submitting your site at: www.addme.com www.submitexpress.com

    If you need help, there are also services that will help you with Search Engine Submissions. You can find one by typing in “search engine submissions” in your search engine.

    One risk to note is that search engines offer no guarantees so you could spend your money and not get what you wanted.
  • Promote your site in mailing lists and News Groups. The Internet offers thousands of very targeted e-mail based discussion lists and Usenet news groups made up of people with very specialized interests. Use Google Groups to find appropriate sources. Don't bother with news groups constituted of pure "SPAM." Rather, add to the discussion in a helpful way and let the "signature" at the end of your e-mail message do your marketing for you. People will gradually get to know and trust you, visit your site, and do business with you.
  • Link to your MyNSP site from another site. You can send people to your MyNSP site from your other site using a link. Use html code like the example below to the link.
    Shop for Nature’s Sunshine Products

    The text, “Shop for Nature’s Sunshine Products” will appear as a link on your Web site.

  • The only way these strategies will work is if you implement them. The beautiful thing about electronic communication like email and your web site is that it is VERY inexpensive! You can send out as many emails as you wish, and you can send as many people to your web site as you wish and it costs you nothing more! Take advantage of this powerful media!

  • One important thing to note is that you should not SPAM. SPAM is sending email to people who do not want to receive it. It is polite to let people know if they do not want to receive email from you any longer, they should let you know. We all hate unwanted junk mail.

CANCER FIGHTING DIET

This article was taken from
womansday.com
July 6, 2004

I think there is a great bit of valuable information in here. When teaching others about lifestyle changes, my primary focus is diet. With dietary changes better health is possible.

THE CANCER FIGHTING DIET
From A to Z, the foods you need
by Elaine Magee, M.P.H.,R.D.

Anthocyanidins
These potentially cancer-fighting phytochemicals are found in many red and purple fruits, including grapes and grape juice, prunes, blueberries, cranberries, strawberries and red apples.

Bread Crust
Researchers at the University of Munster in Germany have identified a possible cancer-fighting compound in bread called pronyl-lysine, which is produced during baking and is found mainly in the crust. Whole-wheat, pumpernickel and other dark-colored breads have the most pronyl-lysine.

Broccoli
It and broccoli sprouts contain the powerful phytochemical sulforaphane, believed to block tumor growth. Sulforaphane is also thought to kill bacteria responsible for ulcers and most stomach cancers.

Cabbage
It's one of the foods with the highest anticancer activity, according to a report from researchers at Andrews University in Barrien Springs, Michigan. Shredded raw cabbage is a great addition to green salads, and cooked cabbage goes well in stews and casseroles.

Dairy Products
Researchers have known for a while that the lactose (milk sugar) in dairy may increase calcium absorption, but now they believe it may also promote the growth of bacteria that reduce cancer-causing compounds. According to a new study from the University of Hawaii, women who consumed the highest amount of dairy products were 54 percent less likely to be diagnosed with ovarian cancer than women who had the least.

Ellagic acid
Cranberries, pomegranates, strawberries and raspberries contain ellagic acid, a phytochemical that may block the body's production of enzymes needed for cancer cells to multiply. Big-city dwellers might want to make a bowl of berries standard fare, because ellagic acid is thought to reduce the genetic damage caused by carcinogens found in tobacco smoke and air pollution.

Fiber
You may reduce your risk of colon cancer by eating plenty of fiber-rich fruits, vegetables, beans and whole grains. One theory: The fermentation of fiber in the colon produces a by-product with anticarcinogenic effects. Dietary fiber may also decrease the risk of breast and prostate cancer.

Folic acid
Besides helping to prevent birth defects and protecting the heart, this vitamin may also impede colorectal and other cancers, researchers believe. Spinach, beans, orange juice and strawberries are good sources.

Garlic
Studies suggest that a small amount of garlic, as little as one-third of a fresh clove a week, may offer protection against the formation of cancer causing substances, says John Milner, Ph.D., chief of the National Cancer Institutes Nutritional Science Research Group. For maximum protective effect, chop a peeled clove and let it sit for about 15 minutes before adding it to a recipe.

Ginger
Andrews University researchers named ginger as one of the foods with the highest anticancer activity. In animal studies the spice has been shown to slow tumor growth.

Honeydew melon
This light-green fruit is a refreshing source of two potential cancer-fighters: Vitamin C and folic acid. One cup of melon cubes contains 59 calories, 50 percent of the daily value for Vitamin C and 13 percent for folic acid.

Indoles
These anticancer phytochemicals are abundant in cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower and cabbage. In lab and animal studies indoles appear to prevent breast cancer possibly by reducing levels of harmful estrogens.

Juice
An 8-ounce glass of 100 percent juice counts toward your daily servings of fruits and vegetables. The top nutrient choices are oranges, grapefruit, carrot and tomato juice.

Kale
Don't let a day go by without having a serving of this or another dark-green leafy vegetables such as broccoli or Brussels sprouts. They contain several important phytochemicals thought to speed up the action of enzymes that break down carcinogens.

Lignans
The richest source of these cancer-protective phytoestrogens is flaxseed, which has been shown to decrease the risk of breast cancer, according to University of Toronto researchers. Other good sources include barley, rye, wheat, oats, broccoli, carrots, spinach and legumes (including soybeans).

Mushrooms
They are the number-one source of selenium from produce. Due to some encouraging research suggesting this mineral has a cancer-protective effect, the National Cancer Institute is now studying whether selenium prevents prostate cancer.

Nuts
Walnuts and pecans are both good sources of ellagic acid.

Olives
These savory snacks (as well as olive oil) contain the phytochemical hydroxytyrosol, which acts as a potent antioxidant in our bodies.

Onions
Plants in this family (which include chives, garlic, leeks, scallions and shallots) contain the cancer-fighting phytochemicals allicin and flavonoids. Men in China have the world's lowest rate of prostate cancer, and researchers say that a diet rich in garlic, shallots and onions may be one of the reasons.

Phytic acid
This phytochemical, present in whole-wheat products, may suppress reaction in the colon that lead to tumors, Eating 100 percent whole-wheat bread is one of the easiest ways to get phytic acid. You can also bake with whole-wheat flour. Omit half the white flour and replace it with an equal volume of whole-wheat flour.

Quercetin
Abundant in onions, apples, tea and red wine, this phytochemical is believed to have strong antioxidative and anticancer properties. It is also found, in smaller amounts, in broccoli.

Red wine
It's an excellent source of resveratrol, identified by cancer researchers as one of the more promising anticancer food chemicals. High concentrations are also found in red grapes and grape juice, as well as nuts.

Soybeans
They contain phytoestrogens called isoflavones, which may reduce the risk of breast cancer by inhibiting the formation of blood vessels that assist tumor growth. In East Asian countries, where soy is a predominant part of the diet, rates of breast cancer have traditionally been low.

Tea
You may want to trade at least one of your daily cups of java for tea. Both black and green tea are good sources of polyphenols, thought to block the cell damage that can lead to cancer. Tea also contains catechins, which are a subgroup of the flavonoid family.

Tomato products
They contain the anticancer standout lycopene, a potent antioxidant that may protect against breast, colon, lung and prostate cancers. Cooked or processed tomato foods contain the most lycopene, and a little fat (such as olive oil) makes the lycopene more bioavailable.

Umbelliferous Vegetables
The term may not be familiar, but the foods found in this category (carrots, celery, dill and parsley, among others) certainly are. Andrews University researchers report that umbelliferous vegetables are among the foods with the highest anticancer activity.

Vitamin D
You can get a dose of Vitamin D, which as been linked to lower colon cancer incidence, by drinking lowfat milk and eating fatty fish. And 15 to 20 minutes of daily sunshine provides Vitamin D without significantly increasing a person's skin cancer risk, according to the American Institute for Cancer Research.

Whole Grains
Brown rice, whole wheat and other whole grains contain fiber as well as the phytochemical saponin, which may neutralize cancer-causing substances in the intestine and possibly reduce the risk of colon cancer.

X-tra hot chili peppers
Go for some pleasure along with the pain. Capsaicin, the phytochemical that's responsible for chili's "heat", may also interfere with cancer development.

Yams
They're loaded with beta-carotene (which may protect against several cancers by preventing damage from oxidation) and potentially cancer fighting folic acid and vitamin C.

Zucchini
This green squash is a great way to get your daily vegetable serving. One cup of steamed zucchini slices gives you 2 grams of fiber, 7 percent of the daily value for beta-carotene and 19 percent for folic acid, all for just 25 calories.

DEFINITIONS:
Antioxidants - Substances found in fruit, vegetables, whole grains, nuts and seeds that protect against cell damage.
Flavonoids - Pigment-producing compounds found in plants that act as antioxidants and offer a wide range of protective health benefits.
Phytochemical - A natural compound found in plant foods that works along with nutrients to protect against disease and may have anticancer properties.
Phytoestrogen - A chemical compound occurring naturally in plants that has properties similar to estrogen.

If everyone in the U.S. ate at least five servings of vegetables and fruit a day, cancer rates could fall by as much as 20 percent.

How do you turn your Plans into a System?

The last Article ended with a question:

How do you turn your Plans into a System?
That's the subject of this Article.

Read it below or at this link:

http://www.terra-cotta-pendants.com/Articles/Article5.php/?trk=230780"target=blank

Wishing you Joy and Success,

Lori

 

P.S. If you’ve missed any of the first four Articles,

you can find them here:

http://www.terra-cotta-pendants.com/Articles/Archives/?trk=230780"target=blank

 

Creating Your System

In a perfect world, your interaction with prospects would go something like this:

“Hello, my name is [insert your name here]. I market pure essential oils for health and wellness.”

“Wow! Sign me up for a large order and tell me; could I do this business with you?!”

 

Sigh~ you wished it could be true, didn’t you. Because we love essential oils and are excited about doing the business we assume that everyone we meet will feel this way. However, as you’ve probably already discovered, it’s not that easy.

Why not? Two reasons. The first is that as much as people love shopping, and as much as they want to purchase things of Quality they are reluctant to pay the Quality Price before they are convinced of the Value the product has for them. [Education is needed.] The second is that people tend to buy from people they know, trust and like which tends to minimize the risk involved with making a purchase. [Relationship-building is required.]

To address these factors, you need a system; a way to transform your business-building plans into a series of steps which maintain a connection with your prospect as you offer education on essential oils and build a relationship with them.

A system is like a series of squares on a board game. The first square represents the initial encounter with a prospect and the last square represents your goal. Your role as a marketer is to identify or create the squares [steps] and guide the prospect from square to square until he or she arrives at the last one.

To set up your system, you need to know exactly what your goal looks like. After trying many different approaches to building my business, I decided to focus on creating a large customer base. My reasoning is this; some of the customers over time with experience with the oils and interaction with me would choose to do the business. Either way they would remain part of a solid commission-generating base.

Design your system to suit your personality. It was only when I got a clear understanding of myself as an Educator that my business began to grow in earnest. The Article “Just Keep Going outlined a Planning Process you can use to get clear on your marketing style and make plans to suit it. Use these plans to create the steps in your system. I’ll share the steps of my system. If you like, you can use it to inspire you in the development of your own.

Step one – The first encounter – introduce yourself and let them know you market and teach about pure essential oils. Mention that you hold workshops on how to use essential oils. This catches people’s attention since most people have heard about Aromatherapy but don’t know very much about it.

Step two – If they seem interested loan them a CD or tape and a small flyer showing the dates of your upcoming workshops. Yep – you carry these on your person at all times! Write down their name and phone number.

Step three – Encourage them to come to a fun and aromatic “How to Use Essential Oils Workshop” in your home which provides education and a relaxing experience with essential oils.

Step four – At the end of the workshop, respecting the fact that they came to learn, tell them about four ways they can learn more. Make a flyer with this info and pass it out. My flyer looks like this:

 


HOW TO LEARN MORE

Buy some oils and experience them for yourself.

Come back to a workshop – bring a friend.

Book a one-to-one consultation to learn how the oils relate to you personally.

Get on the Contact List so you will receive tips VIA email on how different essential oils can help you and hear about upcoming workshops.

 


 

Steps five, six, seven and eight branch out from the actions above. If they purchase essential oils you put them in your Follow-up Process; if they come back to another workshop you check to see where they want to go from there; if they book a Consultation chances are they will either order, or come back to another workshop and if they want to be on your Contact List make sure that what you send is packed with value along with your invitations to your “How to Use the Oils” Workshops.

At each step, if you are not able to move the prospect to the following step, offer to put them on your Contact List. This ensures that you maintain contact with them and allows them the opportunity to step forward at another time. Keeping them in the Game is the number one priority.

You can also insert steps before number one which makes the system even more effective. Offer “Introductory” Workshops within your community. At the end of these Workshops, simply move to step two by inviting participants to learn more by attending a “How to Use the Oils” Workshop. In my experience, people who attend both workshops and have listened to my company’s audio info, nearly always place an order. Someone who continues to gather information does so because he or she wants the product!

No matter how you are building your business, face-to-face, online, over the phone or in another creative way, having a system is essential. Perhaps the way it helps most is that it calms the person you most need to calm; yourself. When you know that your only objective is to gently move the prospect to the next square, there is less pressure on you [and less pressure perceived by your prospect] than if you feel you have to ask for the sale right away.

Once the steps to your system are in place building your business will be like playing a game where you observe prospects at different steps along the board and constantly encourage them to move towards the finish line. What fun!

The backbone of the System outlined here is the “How to Use the Oils” Workshop. Begin by perfecting this step in the system. All your communication with prospects seeks to bring the prospect to the Workshop. You want to be sure that once they get there, their experience convinces them of the value of having essential oils in their life. In the next Article, we’ll talk about a simple plan for setting up a “How to Use the Oils” Workshop in your home.


 

On a personal note: As we were driving to beautiful Cape Breton on our vacation last month, I was telling my husband about this Article, and reciting from memory the first paragraph.  A few minutes later our 1965 VW van developed engine trouble and we found ourselves limping into the driveway of a fellow who was mowing his field, looking for assistance.  What happened next made us laugh when we recalled the conversation we’d had not twenty minutes before.  If you’d like to hear The Story, Email me privately and I’ll send it to you. (This is already long enough!)

NSP Announcements

Important Information Regarding our 90-Day Challenge

August 31 is the last day anyone can sign up for the current 90-Day Challenge product packs. Starting Sept. 1, all Habit-of-Health programs will include new Super Trio. (Stay tuned for more information on Super Trio.)

NSP Discontinues Member ID Card

In the past, Nature’s Sunshine has provided a plastic Member ID Card to each new member. These cards were manufactured, collated and shipped by NSP employees with equipment that is no longer reliable. Replacing this equipment requires a significant financial investment. This fact, coupled with consistent field feedback that the majority of Member Cards are actually discarded, has resulted in our decision to discontinue issuing Member ID Cards, effective July 1, 2007.


Some store owners have expressed concern about not knowing if a customer is an active NSP Member. We are adding a feature to the “Account Profile” section of the Nature's Sunshine website which will allow anyone to print out his membership card, and we are re-designing receipts to highlight member account numbers. Should you wish to check a customer’s status, you may log in and click on Account Expiration Information under the Reports & Tools heading. You may also call NSP Customer Service.

Plan Now to Attend Leaders Conference in Houston

Next February, NSP leaders and business builders will gather in Houston, Texas for our three-day Leaders Conference. Join us for a memorable event, where you’ll learn valuable business-building skills, hear motivating messages from top NSP Managers and special guests, and rub shoulders with fellow Managers and Home Office staff.

This annual gathering is a perfect winter getaway for many Managers. Plan now to join us Feb. 14–17 at the Houston Hyatt Hotel. NSP has negotiated a special rate for our guests, just $105 per night. Mark your calendar.

QV Transfer Deadline

Reminder: the deadline for QV transfers is 4:00 p.m. (Mountain Time) on the last working day of the month, or midnight if you transfer QV online. We must enforce this policy for the benefit of all Managers. Thank you.
