Facebook posts can be a great way to get attention for your online MLM business.
But is your Facebook page looking a bit spare – a bit lonely?
But it does get getter.
There are a few rules to follow when you are putting up your posts which will help you get more likes and then more business.
What type of Facebook Post?
Some people like to read fun, jokey posts, other like serious information.
Facebook is suitable for a bit of lighthearted fun so if you know your audience and you can write this way without it being ridiculous, do so.
Your newsfeeds will contain jokes and cartoons as well as deep and insightful comments and sayings.
Sometimes the cartoons get the message across better than the serious messages.
Serious and credible!
Make sure you have access to cutting edge information and then pass it on.
I have access to the latest science in the health and nutritional area.
I pass it on.
I also keep up to date with the latest on line marketing and training. I pass it on.
Sharing what you know.
I am good at sourcing out information.
You might be too.
Lots of people have not the time or the inclination for this.
They will look to you to provide it.
This is good. You will appear as an authority figure to them.
Subscribe to the best
- Spend money and subscribe to newsletters.
- Share it with your fans and you will reap the rewards.
- Your MLM business online and offline will grow.
People do look for leaders. A good leader is ‘worth his weight in gold’ as the saying goes.
Don’t be afraid to step up and be that leader with the information you have to share.
Your face book fans will give you the likes you need and your MLM business will grow.
If you are looking for better delivery success for you online MLM Business, follow these five steps
- You want to ensure that your emails are being delivered to inboxes, not spam boxes!
- If they are in the spam box, they are not being opened and this means that you are wasting your time and losing a lead.
- What you don’t put in or avoid is important but so is the content.
- If you want people to take you and your MLM business whether it be online or off line seriously, you have to be credible
Put yourself in the readers’ position.
- Are your emails worth reading?
- Do they offer value?
- Are they truthful?
This is what you need to pay attention to and avoid
Avoid all of the following in the subject line
- $$$ signs
- best opportunity
- ground floor opportunity
- make money easily
- make money with no work
- big bucks
Further tips and basic things to avoid in the content
Red – red is a loud color and is used a lot by spammers. It could potentially set off spam filters.
Misleading subject lines – Make sure your subject line matches your copy otherwise the spam filters will consider it misleading.
Capital letters – avoiding using all capital letters within your email or subject line.
Excessive use of symbols – avoid using too many question marks, dollar signs and explanation marks… especially in a row.
Too much linking–2 or 3 links which in include your call to actions are enough. Any more and it will be considered overkill by the reader and the spam filters.
Unsubscribe links – each of your emails should contain an unsubscribe link.These must be valid. The harder you make it for people to unsubscribe, the more problems you will have.
Be honest– make sure you include a proper reply to email address and a ‘from address’ so that people can get in touch with you if they have any issues.
Credibility and authority is everything online today. People will not put up with ‘trash’ and dishonesty.
So if you want success with your emails for your mlm business online – be just that – honest and credible and avoid any spammy content and subject lines.
A good nutritional supplement company can do you a great favour in two ways.
- Improve your health and wellbeing and stave of the ravages of aging
- give you a good primary or secondary online income.
I have spoken often about the benefits of working with a good health and wellness company.
This article which appeared in the ‘Natural Food Merchandisers’ magazine validates all I have been saying.
The reason for your good online income
‘The nutritional supplements industry topped $32 billion in sales last year, increasing 7.4 percent over 2011 sales and tracking with the previous year’s 7 percent growth.
Natural Food Merchandisers surveyed supplement retailers across the nation to determine what factors are driving the industry’s sustained growth.
Alongside what retailers call the “Dr. Oz Factor”—referring to the shelf-clearing power of endorsements by celebrities such as Dr. Mehmet Oz—are other trends and demographics that bring a strong demand to the market.
Rising health-care and health-insurance costs compel consumers to explore preventative supplements and alternatives to more expensive prescriptive medicines.
Among the most proactive consumers are the baby boomers, who in their 50s and 60s represent a large demographic looking to supplements to maintain health and wellness.
The boomers are not the only group driving growth. Retailers also reported increased sales among men and young people.
Male shoppers often seek out the ever-increasing number of natural bodybuilding and sports nutrition supplements available, while young people gravitate toward general supplements or natural products for their children.
As an aging generation enters the market and traditional health care presents a greater challenge, supplement providers have a unique opportunity to position themselves as knowledgeable, viable health-care solutions. Whether through retail or direct sales, that kind of positioning requires education and interaction.
As Jon Fiume of Wadsworth, Ohio-based Ritzman Pharmacies, points out, “You can’t just operate in your own little box. … What are you doing to get involved in the bigger initiatives that directly impact your community? Those efforts are also going to impact your business.”

Natural Foods Merchandiser magazine serves the natural and organic products industry with a primary focus on the growth of retail business.
The magazine provides innovative ideas and information on products and trends, encouraging the development of a new health model based on wellness and the prevention of illness.
As an industry journal, Natural Foods Merchandiser provides a call to action to unify, educate, and promote the growth of the industry.

This one test was done with red and green buttons.

In contrast is thought to say excitement, passion, blood, warning, even danger!
In general it is not used as an access button color as much as green or yellow.
This test was run over a few days with a total of 2,000 visits to the pages.

But I did it the hard way.
MLM and Blogging Training
I had lessons on
- how to set the website up
- How to do SEO
- How to do everything in fact.
I do get leads, but for me to be really out there, on top of my game, I need 1000’s of posts or blogs
- Need to know the latest and the greatest of SEO
- Have 100’s of backlinks to the best sites
- So on, so on and so on!!!
It is tough and it’s consistency.
So along comes this amazing system and WOW – its all there in one fantastic package.
It makes it SO EASY
I got into the blog page, went to do my first post and I see that there are already 1,500 posts up there.
Why does It Work?
One big reason – it is being done as a group.
Remember I said I needed 1000’s of pages and back links.
- The group gives that to the site.
- There is volume because it is being done as a group.
This is POWER for any online business.
- The back office is doing the hard grind of the SEO etc.
- All you have to do is write a bit each day.
So this is why I am so excited and I so so wish that I had know about this when I started.
I would be much much further down the track if I had.
Thank you to this amazing system.
You are offerings a wonderful service and some income as well.

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 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.
I am often asked questions about MLM
What is MLM all about – please tell me!
- Why are so many people all over the world participating in this industry?
- Why is it sometimes frowned upon, criticized and deemed as perhaps a ‘scam’, not a real business?
- Why do some people love it with a passion and others hate it with a passion?
- Can you really earn money?
- Do some people really make ‘mega bucks’?
- Do the companies really have good products – better than the average product on the shelf?
The answer to all these questions is the same as in any industry and profession.
Yes and no!
There is the good, in fact the very good and the not so good – the good, the bad nod the ugly you might say!
However, what I can do is tell you what I know of the good and the very good.
Why do I praise the MLM Industry?
My experience in MLM is good for many reasons.
It is so much more than the money, the income I earn.
It is also about the wider benefits, the wider experiences I have enjoyed and learned from being part of it.
Let me start from the very beginning. I found out about MLM because I was experiencing a health challenge. My doctor had been treating me with intravenous nutrition.
He directed me to a nutritional MLM company for my maintenance program.
I am not using products from this company now as I have found far superior ones.
However, the nutrition I took then and the changes I made, have turned my life and my health around. I have never looked back.
MLM and personal growth
On a very personal note, I say a big thank you to all the training, personal growth and development I have done since being part of this industry.
The last 18 months have been extremely challenging for me, as my daughter was stricken with an aggressive form of cancer.
Watching her struggle with the very aggressive treatment and then watching her die was heart rendering to say the least.
MLM training helped me cope
But and a big BUT. I have been taught how to think about difficulties, how to frame experiences, how to maintain my dignity and posture in stressful situations.
This training, this education of my mind allowed me to cope with this terrible time with fortitude and composure.
It allowed me to talk about her in my eulogy in a truly meaningful way – as I wanted to without falling apart.
I was surrounded with a circle of caring and giving fellow network marketers because all those in network marketing or MLM know that it is in the giving that you receive.
For the duration of our struggle we were all surrounded, held and supported by this net of people, of strength and love and positive thoughts.
This is what MLM is truly about
Why? Because this is the true mlm’er.
It is not about the scammer, the cheaters or the greedy.
It is about people who know and understand the meaning of teamwork, sharing, giving, receiving and looking ahead.
This post has not taught you about the money, or how to do the business. More on that in the next few posts.
But this is the core essence, the core ethos of the industry – everyone doing a little bit for the benefit of each other and therefore caring about each other.
So if you are asked or you ask about MLM here lies your answer.
