The ‘About Page Is Important But What Do You Say?
Yesterday I wrote about the importance of being on Google+ and primarily in regard to the ‘About’ page i.e. all about you.
It can be much shorted that this and I do have a shorter version on my website.
However, if I am going to work with someone, follow them, listen to them, I do want to know something about them.
This is online, not face to face so it is important to build up trust.
So here is just a bit about me, Susan Rutherford and why I participate in and enjoy online marketing.
How I Got Started
It all started many years ago when I had a health challenge.
- I turned myself around with the help of a doctor who gave me intravenous nutrition.
- As a maintenance, he put me onto a company which had something I and in fact everyone on the planet needs.
- They are pioneers in this research.
Wow – what a difference it made to me.
- I thank that person very much.
- This naturally got me really interested in health and wellbeing.
I could see what a difference it made when I and others gave our bodies all the nutrients necessary to give us energy, vitality and be free of illness and disease.
The Beginning Of My Journey
- I studied, read, went to seminars and lectures and discovered who was worth listening to.
- It was, it is my passion.
But not only did I learn about how to keep my body in good condition, I learnt so much more.
The company I aligned with is a Direct Sales Company using the network marketing platform to get their goods to the people.
Although they are primarily a science and research company, when their product was first introduced to market it just sat on the shelves.
- No one understood it.
- Hence the need for ‘word of mouth’.
- Nothing is as powerful as ‘word of mouth ‘ marketing.
These companies are very good at training, not only in marketing, but in personal growth and development.
- I have grown in leaps and bounds in my understanding of myself and others.
- I am so grateful for this training.
How did this lead me to online marketing?
- My husband was retrenched.
- We needed extra money.
- I teach the violin, but that does not bring in a lot of money.
Hit The Internet
So I decided to hit the Internet, took some classes to learn how to set up my website and blog.
Once again, I read, I listened, I attended conferences and seminars.
It was a bit of a learning curve I will admit, but a great journey at the same time.
- And I am still on that journey.
- I will not stop because apart from the enjoyment I get from it, the sense of purpose it gives me
- I am keeping my brain active.
That alone is worth all I do.
Do It This Way Not The Old Way I Did It!
An important caveat here.
I learnt how to blog etc. the hard way, the slow way [and expensive]
- There are better avenues to take now and I have links to this on this page.
- I highly recommend it if you are starting out.
- I am using it now as well as it is all encompassing for online marketing.
Branching Out And Earning With More
I have branched out as I have discovered how to market, discovered what is actually available to us on the Internet. Yes there are scams and yes you can get burnt but there are also some excellent online income programs.
- I have learnt that I can do well by being part of a couple of contrasting income earning companies.
- I use my primary MLM health and nutritional company
- I have just picked up another product which is in total contrast to my primary [ this is important] but of great benefit to the world.
The Amazing Profit Sharing
I also earn excellent income from an amazing online shopping mall plus plus plus company, which has a profit sharing side to it.
- It is based on the Muhammad Yunus and the Grameen Bank philosophy where everyone gets a share.
- It is not MLM but has taken some of the best components of it.
Very exciting and very fair.
My primary company has a program where they take some of the money they earn from our orders and use it to feed malnourished children all around the globe.
- Yes they do use one of their own very special and effective vitamin and mineral mixes.
- So I am part of a burgeoning and powerful Social Entrepreneurial program.
- Not only do I nourish myself, my family, friends and others, but the needy children of the world.
I feel very good about this.
My advice to you is
“If I can do this so can you”
- I am definitely in the older age group
- I can still learn as much new material as I want and need to
- I earn good money
- I have energy and vitality.
I am free from crippling and debilitating diseases and I still look good, even if I do say so myself.
There is one product I take which really benefits the skin.
- Keeps the wrinkles at bay.
Is it easy?
No not always and sometimes very frustrating and all those other words which come with frustration.
As my image says ‘ what would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail?’

Why Do You Need Google+ for Success with Your Online MLM Business?
Yesterday I wrote about all the Social Media sites and how interaction with them can help your online business and success, particularly in MLM.
Today I want to focus on Google+ as this is not as well known as Facebook and Twitter as a social media site.
As you know, Social Media platforms are a treasure trove of customer information and Google+ is no exception.
It uses and combines all the aspects of the social medial platforms and then sets them up in its own network.
Google has been around for a while and they are very good at what they do.
The About Section
Lets just look at what you can do with the ‘about section’
This is all about ‘YOU’ and you can do a lot to sell yourself just in this section alone.
What Does It Show?
The usual things e.g. basic information about you but there is also a lot of more valuable information
- You can see a person’s Google reviews
- You Tube history
- Authority blogs
Its all about Psychographics
- Understanding psychographics is extremely valuable.
- Online behavior is what you are looking for.
- It tells you what your target audience interests are.
What does this mean for the Success of Your Online Business?
- It means that you can tightly target your audience.
- Not waste time and money on those who are not interested in what you have to offer.
Once again, it all goes back to ‘giving the customer what he wants’
As Tim Sales and Michael Oliver say ‘Permission Based Selling’
- This is not about being intrusive into other peoples lives.
- This is about sharing information and it’s out there for everyone to see.
- You just have to know how to make use of it.
The Internet is a gold mine for any business, whether it be MLM online or just any online business.
Until next time
Combing Social Media With Your Online MLM Business Is A Must!
- If face book was a country, it would be the 3rd. largest and growing!
- I billions tweets per day!
- 2 new visitors every second
- 3rd most visited website
- 2nd largest search engine [global searches]
- 5.3 billion subscribers globally
- phones getting smarter
- by end of 2013, the majority of searches will be done from smart phones
- Have a 96% open rate within the first 5 minutes
Trust with Advertising
- 90% of people trust personal recommendations rather than advertising
It’s not ‘ Word of Mouth’ but World of Mouth’
- 50% of the world’s population is under 30
- If you want to capture this market, you must be using these platforms effectively.
Social, viral and mobile marketing is here to stay and if you want your MLM online business to be a success, learn how to use them.
What does constitute ‘Success?’ If you have it some areas of your life, how do you bring it over to your online MLM business?
It’s the million dollar question BUT
Before you read the details, the bottom line is
Follow your PASSION– do what you LOVE and LOVE what you do!
Have good RELATIONSHIPS with everything part of your life!
I know this is not a new concept to you.
It’s tough to go to work each day unhappy, wishing you were somewhere else.
Isn’t that why most people are looking to make money online anyway?
To change their circumstances?
What makes Success?
The second bottom line is to make sure that what you are endeavouring to market online, that you believe in it
- use it because you love it
- have confidence in the product or service
- confidence in the company itself
- know you are helping others.
Back to the study.
I have taken the results on this study [see below] and interpreted it to transfer to success in business.
True success is not isolated to one area of our lives.
My motto is ‘Health is Wealth’ because anyone who has poor health, but all the money in the world does not feel happy or even perhaps successful.
The father who works non stop at the expense of his family does not have total success.
So it appears from the study that LOVE and RELATIONSHIPS are the key to your success.
- Love what you do
- Love your relationships
Here is the excerpt from the summary of the study. [I have left quite a lot out but the link is here if you want the lot]
‘In June 2009, The Atlantic published a cover story on the Grant Study, one of the longest-running longitudinal studies of human development.
The project, which began in 1938, has followed 268 Harvard undergraduate men for 75 years, measuring an astonishing range of psychological, anthropological, and physical traits—from personality type to IQ to drinking habits to family relationships to “hanging length of his scrotum”—in an effort to determine what factors contribute most strongly to human flourishing.
There was no significant difference in maximum income earned by men with IQs in the 110–115 range and men with IQs higher than 150
Vaillant revisited the data he had been studying since the 1960s for his book, an experience that further convinced him that what matters most in life are relationships.
For instance, the 58 men who scored highest on measurements of “warm relationships” earned an average of $141,000 a year more at their peak salaries (usually between ages 55 and 60) than the 31 men who scored lowest; the former were also three times more likely to have achieved professional success worthy of inclusion in Who’s Who.
Vaillant’s key takeaway, in his own words: “The seventy-five years and twenty million dollars expended on the Grant Study points … to a straightforward five-word conclusion: ‘Happiness is love. Full stop.’ ”
What to do if this is NOT you!
Stop what you are doing particularly if it is not successful and do something you LOVE.
There are so many choices online.

Why would your online MLM business benefit if you were a Social Entrepreneur as well?
There is a huge wave, in fact a tsunami happening in the business world, but in particular the home business arena.
It is all linked to the world of helping others, being a Social Entrepreneur.
I have written about this before, but when I saw this post in my Facebook newsfeed, I felt I had to share it with you.
It is about the CEO of the world’s top scientific and research MLM nutritional company.
He and his wife’s vision, passion, hard work and tenacity has built the most amazing following of Social Entrepreneurs and hence income earners.
500,000,000 Children Nourished
As a result, 5 million children will soon be fed with the world’s top vitamin and mineral supplement.
The Best Thing
Those participating are NOT paying anything extra out of their pockets to feed these needy children.
The company themselves forego a % of profit from the member’s monthly orders and use that money to supply the nutrients to the children.
Here is an excerpt from the post.
[I have removed any personal names etc for compliance reasons]
‘Social Entrepreneur Sam is fast becoming one of the biggest champions for the Social Entrepreneur Revolution that is hitting the global market place.
Through his visionary leadership, not only to the company he founded but also to other social entrepreneurs, companies all over the world are finding new ways to impact society.
Sam’s vision to take the company he founded into a whole new dimension of success and purpose is inspiring hundreds of thousands of business owners around the world to partner with him, his company and create a change for good.
Creating millionaires in the home business arena
This change, when it happens, will see 5,000,000 (that’s 5 million) children nourished every single month, and this will in turn create millionaires in the home business arena.
How exciting is that, nourish children for FREE and through a FREE program, millionaires are created???
It seems that Sam has had to go through challenges, and if you look at some of the challenges that Sam and his amazing wife have had to go through, you could not help but be amazed at the depth of character and purpose they have, to just keep going.
“I have found that the more challenges we go through, the greater the depth of leadership we are able to handle because it draws out of us a tenacity that is required to move forward and see the vision that God gives us fulfilled.”
Leadership has to be fought for, anything that is just given to us that we have not had to work towards and grow within, is something that most people treat with disdain, this would be one of the reasons why Sam and his wife are true leaders within the industry.
They know how to fight the good fight.
“Our vision was to give great value and insight into what we believe God is doing in the market and how you as an individual can partner with us to create something great for your life and at the same time, change the lives of children all around the world.”
Ethics Justice and Decency
It is so refreshing to work with a company that are NOT all about slick sales words.
They are about truth, honesty and doing good for each other and the world.
They have so many loyal product users because they don’t cheat you, they give you value and they give you the best.
This is why I too am a loyal follower and user of the best.
Why wouldn’t I want the best for my body?

What is a Facebook unpublished post and how can you use it for your online MLM business?
Facebook is an amazing source of everything, but they can be frustrating to the business person because they are frequently making changes.
Below is official information taken from Inside Facebook
PS REMEMBER TO LIKE MY PAGE – it’s what we all have to do to help each other!
‘Just of this week, Facebook has given advertisers new opportunities to run more relevant ads and test their creative in News Feed by allowing them to create “unpublished posts” that intentionally do not appear to all fans of their page.
Previously this option was available for ads on the right hand side of the desktop site, but it was not allowed for feed-based ads until last week.
Even though News Feed is the most engaging placement Facebook offers, it had been difficult to use very highly targeted messaging or run multivariate tests there because a page was required to first create posts that could appear to fans.
With unpublished posts, advertisers can now reach users in News Feed without overwhelming their fans with dozens of different posts, which might not be relevant to them.
For example, an athletic brand could make an unpublished post about a basketball product and only show that to fans who are interested in basketball, and then do a tennis-related post for tennis fans, and so on.
Although Facebook offers some page post targeting by age, gender, location and other demographic information, there is no organic way to target posts by interests or factors like Custom Audiences.
But with unpublished posts that run as page post ads in News Feed, businesses can show users more relevant content.
A service could show long time users one version of an ad, new users another, and leads yet another.
Advertisers can also do more creative optimization by testing variations of copy or images.
Steve Irvine, Group Director of Global Marketing Solutions, Facebook Canada, spoke about unpublished posts during a fireside chat with AdParlor CEO Hussein Fazal at the Marketing on Facebook conference in Toronto today.
“It’s about really good advertising,” Irvine said. “It’s the ability to take a message that matters to the people it’s relevant to in the most engaging place on Facebook.”
So what does this really mean to you, the small online business person?
It’s all about targeting your market and only working with those who want what you have to offer.
If you take it back to the bare networking model, it can be aligned with
- Asking the questions
- Finding out what people want
- Giving them what they want and only that
It is not about what you want or what you think is great.
It’s about the customer, the lead’s, the clients’ needs and you fulfilling them.
With Facebook unpublished posts, you can target people who for example want
- mlm online business
- product information
- social entrepreneurship
The end result might be the same, but the pathways are different.
This is just one of my series of posts and newsletters on what is happening in Facebook at the moment.
And remember, I spell face book in different ways because that is what people do when searching for it and I am giving the search engines all possible options.
Until next time
How would you like to be successful with Face Book in your online MLM business?
There are one billion users in Face book and it is on the move.
Facebook is changing and you do need to keep up with it if you want to use it for your online business.
There is so much information that it can be confusing but I shall keep you informed with the essentials.
How is Face Book changing?
They are becoming more of a search engine with their Facebook Graph Search.
As of February 16, 2013, the social graph search feature is still being brought in for personal profiles.
There is no final comment on whether it will be made available for brand pages.
But for now, you can optimize your personal experiences in using Facebook Graph Search for business.
What does this mean for you?
It means that you need to have lots of fans and interact with them.
Show that you really are active on face book.
Fans are going to be your ‘Key Words”
Your fans and the interaction you have with your fans will determine which pages are searched and found by Facebook’s Graph Search “engine”
Key words will still hold weight however.
How do you get good interaction with your fans?
By putting up good posts or status updates.
In other words, good content just as you would on your website.
Good comments by your fans and interaction with your fans will also contribute.
This is just a trickle for you.
I shall keep updating as the new information comes to hand.
Please comment and like this post!
We all have to help each other.!!!
An important PS re key words
You might have noticed that I have spelt Face book in various ways.
This is because people spell if differently when doing a search.
As it is one of my key words for this post, I need to spell it with all the variables to give me better ranking in the search engines.
You will notice in my tags on my website that I have entered all the variables.
This is an important point for you to remember with your key word use and research.
Spelling is not consistent – anything goes.
I hope this is a helpful post for you
Until the next one
How do you know if your liquid vitamin and mineral supplement is a good one?
What is a good liquid supplement anyway?
Questions to ask
- Do they have to be made a special way?
- Do they have to be sources from plants or can they just be made in the lab?
There are so many alternatives and so much to chose from on the shelves and the Internet.
- How do you know if it is a real vitamin and mineral supplement, made from natural sources?
- Is it dangerous for your health?
Yes it can be- very dangerous in fact check this post out for more
Here are some facts to help you
All liquid supplements have:
- Been pasteurized so the enzymes are killed as well as other good nutrients
This means that they don’t really do much for you except give you expensive urine
There is a better way
Why not just take the pure powdered concentrates they make these liquids from and skip:
- paying for the water
- the shipping on the water,
- the preservatives and have a raw product that was not pasteurized.
Add your own healthier water or juice to it when used so there is no loss of nutrition as with liquids.
Are your really swallowing petroleum bye products?
If it is fortified with vitamins and minerals they are from
- coal tar and rocks
- not from the food sources in the bottle.
- Get nutrition the way your body wants it.
- 100% Real food Source standardized vitamins and minerals
Why Do I KISS To Make Online MLM Income?
Keeping your life, your online system or business SIMPLE is the way you will get there in the end and then achieve your goals.
It’s rather like an exercise program. It must be something you can do continuously.
Set your goals too high and you give up.
How many people do you know who have taken our a gym membership at great cost only to go a few times?
It was too hard, too time consuming, too far to drive etc. etc. etc
It’s the same with online marketing.
You must be consistent.
That is why it is important to use a method of blogging or setting up you website which is achievable, particularly if you are new to the game.
SEO is very sophisticated and do you really want to spend all your time learning it?
Use others expert knowledge and then do what you are good at – marketing your product, opportunity etc.
This is why I use and recommend a system which is already set up.
A system which is successful and making a lot of people a lot of money.
For a small cost, use their blogging – website platform and then spend time on the important things that will make you money.
There is a video to watch – it may or may not be your style, but regardless, these two are very very successful and know what they are doing.
They have provided you with an excellent way to get your message out there and an affiliate income as well that pays back 100%
It’s really worth considering and it’s already working for over 100,000 people. They are blogging successfully and making money from the affiliate program.
Why I Take This Food Based Vitamin and Mineral Supplement
I had the privilege of attending a talk by one of the world’s top Medical directors for one of the world’s top nutritional companies.
I am not naming the company or the Doctor for compliant reasons, but I will provide a link to a website so you can investigate them for yourself.
He is the President Emeritus of the American Naturopathic Medical Association. As an expert in the therapeutic use of dietary supplements, he is in great deand as a speaker on the topic of Complementary Medicine.
I have heard this doctor speak many times, but each time I learn something new and I am once again inspired.
World’s Best Nutritional Supplement
I want to share with you’re the new information I learned this time. It really did reinforce for me, why I take these products.
His focus was on their latest product release, a food based vitamin and mineral supplement with so much more.
Food Based Vitamin and Mineral Supplement
It is the most advanced blend of natural vitamins, mineral, amino acids, fatty acids, fibre, phytosterols and polysaccharides.
It uses their patented Real Food TechnologySM Solution to give your body the whole-food, energy-boosting, immune system-supporting nutrition it wants and needs.
You body is designed to absorb vitamins and minerals from food sources.
95% of vitamins and minerals are chemically made. They can be harmful to you and difficult to absorb and utilize. [more on this later]
The very exciting thing I discovered was something called IP6.
IP6 is in this top nutritional supplement
‘If there is a product which has Manapol and IP6 in – you will want to be taking it’
What is so special about IP6?
IP6 in a nutshell [more below] is a compound found in beans, whole grains, nuts, seeds, rice, wheat bran, corn and sesame.
It is one of the B vitamins and research is showing that it has some very effective and positive properties in regard to cancer.
IP6 is present in all human cells.
It is in foods eg beans, whole grains, nuts, seed, rice and wheat bran.
However, IP6 obtained from food is bound to protein. Before the body can absorb it, IP6 must be freed from this protein by the enzyme phytase that is present in food and naturally in the intestinal tract
The power of the phytase enzyme is damaging to IP6 and renders much of it inactive and therefore less effective when obtained in this form.
Pure IP6 as in this whole food supplement, is not bound to protein and is easily absorbed, intact and able to provide it’s complete medicinal properties.
Make Money with World’s Best Vitamin and Mineral Supplement
Below is why this product is so beneficial and dollar for dollar such excellent value.
It contains the plant based phytonutrient blend of standardized vitamins and minerals in a base of stabilised rice bran. [see below]
- Glyconutrients [Manapol– proven to improve brain function]
- Stabilised rice bran
How many people do you know who would want to spend their money on the BEST supplement rather than one which is doing them no good at all?
This is one of the best and easiest products to market and you get your own specific website to send them to
Stabilised Rice Bran
‘Stabilised rice bran (SRB) is an emerging super food which captures the most nutritious parts of the kernel that are otherwise stripped away during the milling process.’
The SRB in this whole food supplement alone, contains a wide array of fatty acids, phytosterols, glyconutrients, fibres and many other nutrients.
Manapol®, the superior aloe vera gel used in this powder, is exclusive to the company and at the heart of their scientific nutritional breakthroughs.
Grown in the mineral-rich volcanic soil of Costa Rica, Manapol is created from the stabilised key components of aloe vera gel (acemannan), which have been shown to provide the most benefit.
The hydroponic technology used to standardize the plant- sourced minerals is the first and only of its kind. This process makes it possible to not only include food- sourced nutrients in the product, but also to verify their amounts.’
Why You Need a Whole Food Supplement
This is important because your body can only absorb and use nutrients in this form.
95% of supplements sold are made from petroleum or its bi- products. Yes petroleum is natural but are you designed to eat it?
It is easy to tell if a supplement is synthetic. Rule of thumb – if it’s hard to pronounce – it is not food based but chemically made.
Studies done with such supplements found that they are harmful to the human body.
Some studies were actually stopped midway because those in the trial were experiencing adverse effects.
Read the labels of the very popular well-advertised brands. Check for yourself.
Synthetic vitamins may include: Listed as
Vitamin B2 riboflavin
Vitamin C ascorbic acid
Vitamin D calciferol
Vitamin E dl-alpha-tocopherol
Vitamin K menadione or phytonadione
Pantothenic acid calcium-D-panthothenate
Folic acid pteroylglutamic acid
Any vitamin ending in the following is synthetic: acetate, hydrochloride, mononitrate, palmitate or succinate.
Synthetic mineral names will usually end in one of the following:
One Stop Shop!
This amazing vitamin, mineral and lots more is a one- stop shop – everything in one tub of powder which can be sprinkled on food, mixed in water or juice, suitable for children as well as adults of all ages and stages.
The $ value is excellent and people, naturopaths and health care professionals using it, are getting great results with it.
I highly recommend it.
It is a great family supplement and if you buy two tubs on an automatic order, there is no delivery charge.
What To Do Next
There is so much more I could say – but for now, this is it.
