App (002)

By Director of Marketing Erin Koch 

Never—and we mean never—in the history of Reliv has there been a better time to start your own business as an independent Distributor. Why? Because now running your Reliv empire is as easy as pushing a button on your smartphone. In April of this year, fans flocked to Reliv Live in Anaheim, California, to be the first ones to take the new Reliv app for a test drive.

“I’m excited because our Distributors and recruits are able to experience Reliv’s personal touch in the palm of their hands when they use our new mobile app! It highlights our incredible value through the app’s professional presence, and most important, it is so user-friendly and allows people to get information much easier and faster. Times have really changed in the last 5-10 years. The number of mobile users today is greater than the number of desktop users! There is no comparison to the personal touch a mobile app can offer,” says Bronze Ambassador Julie Moeller.

5 Things We Learned From The Winter Olympics

Skiing2 (002)

By Social Media Coordinator Michaela Bukaty

The Winter Olympics have come to a close and Champions have been rewarded, but we are still in an Olympics state of mind. There is so much that we can learn from these inspiring athletes beyond their health and fitness routines. It’s easy to overlook the nontangible characteristics and strengths held by Olympians, but it takes so much resilience, patience and motivation to do what they did. Anyone can watch the reruns of figure skating or ski jumping and see the looks of determination on each competitor’s face. These incredible people had a mission and put themselves out there to succeed.

Upon reflection, there is a lot we can learn from Olympians that translates to our business:

  • Follow Your Dream. Dreams can be intimidating, but don’t let your fears get in the way of pursuing them. Also, don’t let others belittle your dreams. I bet every single Olympic Champion faced someone in their life that didn’t believe in them—and look where they are now!
  • Live Your Passion. Once you follow your dream you can truly live your passion and enjoy the life you want! Do you want to stay home with your kids and provide for them? Find a job that fulfills both passions. With Reliv, you can work anywhere and at any time while also providing essential nutrition to your whole family.
  • Always Persevere. At points, you might feel like giving up, especially in the beginning. Don’t! Always persevere and you will be your own version of an Olympic Champion. You will see your success by working hard and sticking with it.
  • Encourage Others. Find your support system and build them up! Always be encouraging others to live their dream and passion. If you encourage your customers and your downlines to be successful, they will be motivated to succeed. Others’ success is your success.
  • Have Fun and Keep Going! Like Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing Tom Pinnock always says, “If you’re not having fun, you’re done!” Have fun with what you do and always keep going.

Why You Should Celebrate More In Your Business

RecognitionNote

By Social Media Coordinator Michaela Bukaty

Each month, Reliv Corporate strives to recognize advancements in the field to celebrate your success and hard work! It is so important to be acknowledged by the entire community and is an easy way to boost the morale of your fellow Distributors or customers.

The term “celebration” comes with a fun, light-hearted connotation; however, celebration should be something practiced regularly in your business. Recognizing the accomplishments of your downline or the weight loss transformations of your customers is completely free on your end but priceless to the receiver. Who doesn’t like being called out for their amazing results? Moreover, your recognition could be the motivational boost that person needs to move to the next level in their business.

Here are a few ways you can celebrate more in your business:

  • Write handwritten notes. A short and sweet handwritten note goes a long way. Send a congratulatory card to someone rocking the business in your downline or to a customer who has been taking Reliv Now® every day! If handwritten notes aren’t your thing, send a personalized email to check in!
  • Congratulate on Facebook. Social media is an incredibly easy way to connect and follow up with your customers. Welcome new Distributors on Facebook with a special post, congratulate your customers’ results or have a monthly spotlight of someone you admire in the business. Whatever you choose, these simple posts will mean the world to the person you are spotlighting.
  • Know the milestones. Has your customer been with you for a year? Is it the 10th anniversary in business of someone in your downline? Send them a note or just give them a quick call on these special milestones! Share with them your favorite memory of working with them.

Celebration promotes positive reinforcement and motivation. Your peers and customers will see and feel the difference once you start acknowledging them more. With these three tips, your team’s morale will go up and become more positive.

5 Online Writing Tips Every Entrepreneur Needs To Know

Blogger

By Social Media Coordinator Michaela Bukaty

As technology develops and the Internet evolves, so does our use of language. Journalism is no longer just ink on paper but also typeface on a screen. How we write online is much different than how we write traditionally, but it’s easy to do. Writing online is not nearly as scary as it may sound!

Here are some tips to get you started:

  1. Cater to your audience. Choose the right point of view and word choice based on your audience. There is no need to show off with big words that no one will understand. On the other hand, don’t be too casual by using text abbreviations such as, “Thx, U R, etc.” Be professional!
  2. Create high-quality content. Use proper grammar and correct spelling so you won’t lose credibility with your audience. Triple check your work for small mistakes! A perk of writing online is that you can make edits after hitting the publish button. Install the free program Grammarly to help you find any grammar or spelling errors.
  3. Remain relevant. Keep your information up-to-date and topics timely. Use relevant hashtags to broaden the reach of your work, as well. Is there a new Reliv Super Saturday event or Fit3 Challenge? Write about it!
  4. Engage with your audience. Ask your audience questions, reply to their comments and write about topics that they want to hear. Always use a call to action to encourage them to engage with you.
  5. Use visuals. We are a very visually-based species, especially Millenials. We love pictures, graphics, videos and more, especially on social media. Just make sure your visuals are relevant to your written content. You can always find free stock photos to use on CreativeCommons.org.

With these 5 quick tips, your writing will improve tremendously. Take the Internet by storm with your new skills!

What’s the Difference Between Social Media Platforms?

SocialMedia

By Social Media Coordinator Michaela Bukaty

Social media can be a scary force of nature. Each social media platform is different, too, which makes it even scarier! But you do not need to worry, because here is a quick breakdown on the difference between each platform and all that you need to know about them!

Facebook

Facebook is probably the platform you are most familiar with, and is one of the most popular channels. Facebook is all about brand awareness, showing off your personal lifestyle, sharing information with your friends or followers, etc. Facebook is also the perfect place for customer service and building relationships. It is incredibly easy to engage with your followers or group members on Facebook just by hitting the “like” button or commenting. Think of Facebook as a conversation at a dinner party!

Twitter

Twitter is much more of a quick news source of information. This is the place for short blurbs of information, inspirational quotes, business tips, business updates and engaging with other businesses.

Instagram

Instagram is 100% visual. In order to succeed at Instagram, one must share visually engaging content that shows off your brand in an authentic and beautiful way. All images should be high quality and engaging for the audience. This is one of my favorite platforms for my personal life because I love taking pictures!

LinkedIn

LinkedIn is only for professional or business content. You can succeed at this by sharing articles and establishing your business credibility with curated content. This is not the place to share pictures of your kids, only post professional content that will enhance your brand!

Pinterest

Pinterest is a fun platform to share ideas for a Reliv lifestyle. You can share business tips, home office ideas, fitness tips, shake recipes, clean eating recipes and so much more. This is a platform that you can have fun with and make it your own!

Each platform has its own personality, so take your time and focus on just one before you branch out to another. It is important to be the best you can be at one thing rather than spreading yourself too thin. If you ever have a question regarding Facebook, be sure to read our updated Facebook Guide!
