Using #USANA Tag Team Emails to Grow Your Business


- by Pete and Dora Zdanis
  
Network marketing is all about teamwork, and smart teams work together to help each other succeed. One great way to do this is to help each other with “tag team” email messages to your prospects. Here’s how “tag team” emails work:

Let’s say that you have a prospect, John Doe, who has expressed interest in USANA, but is not yet quite ready to sign up, for whatever reason.

While John is still considering USANA, ask if he would be willing to receive information by email from other USANA Associates regarding their USANA experiences.

Assuming John agrees, you then send the following message to your “tag team” members:
Please send a tag team email to: John Doe, email: john@yippieskippie.com  on my behalf. – Benny Builder”

Each of your tag team members then sends an email along the following lines to John, with a copy to you:

“Dear John,

I understand from my associate, Benny Builder, that you are considering joining our USANA team. I would urge you to look very closely at USANA. My experience with the USANA products and business has been fantastic, etc., etc.

Yours truly, Denny Director”

Assuming that there are two or three members of your tag team, your prospect will receive two or three email messages encouraging him to sign up with you in USANA.

John will now be much more likely to sign up since he has heard how great USANA is from a number of people other than you. He can also readily see that he will be part of an outstanding team with great support when he signs up with you, and your team, in USANA.

Some tips and ideas:

Always ask permission from your prospect to have tag team emails sent to them. Never impose on their privacy.

Limit the number of tag emails that a prospect will receive to two or three. Don’t overwhelm or intimidate them.


Choose tag team members from your upline, or from downline who will be upline of the prospect after the prospect signs up.


If you don’t have any upline or downline people to help you with tag emails, ask some crossline people if they would be willing to help you until you get your own team started.


Make an email distribution list of your tag team members so that you can quickly and easily send tag email requests to them.


Prepare a tag email template of your own, and save it on your computer or device. Then, all you need to do is modify your template with the name of the prospect and “forward” it to them when someone asks you to send a tag email on their behalf.


Always follow up with your prospect to confirm that they received the tag team emails, and ask them what they liked best about what they received. Don't assume that your prospect received tag team emails due to spam filters, firewalls, etc.

Start using tag team emails today if you haven’t already.

It will simplify and accelerate your USANA business building efforts.

Zinc Deficiency May Alter How the Immune System Responds to Inflammation



At a Glance:

A new study has shown that a zinc deficiency contributes to chronic inflammation by causing improper immune cell activation and dysregulation of a protein that affects inflammation in the cell.




Read more about this research below:

Zinc is an essential mineral in human health required as a cofactor in numerous biological processes including DNA and protein synthesis, cell division, normal growth and development, neurological function and immunity, and wound healing. It is also required for normal taste perception and smell. 

Zinc is naturally available in a wide variety of foods with higher amounts found in protein-rich foods including meat, poultry and seafood. Regular intake is necessary to maintain a steady state because it is not stored. Zinc deficiency most often occurs when intake is inadequate or poorly absorbed, when there are increased losses of zinc from the body, or when the requirement for zinc increases. 

Evidence from NHANES III data show that zinc intakes among older adults might be marginal, increasing the risk of a zinc deficiency. 

Zinc deficiency is thought to contribute to the development of chronic diseases that involve inflammation and often show up in older adults who have a higher risk for zinc deficiency. In a new study published in the journal Molecular Nutrition & Food Research researchers examined how the immune system responds to zinc deficiency resulting in mechanisms that promote inflammation. Using in vitro cell culture and the aging mouse model, researchers found that zinc deficiency can induce an increase in the inflammatory response in cells by causing improper immune cell activation and dysregulation of cytokine IL-6, a protein that affects inflammation in the cell. When comparing zinc levels in both young and older living mice, the older mice with low zinc levels had a corresponding increase in chronic inflammation and decreased IL-6 methylation, an epigenetic mechanism that is used by cells to control gene expression. 

The results of this study provide evidence of a potential link between zinc deficiency and increased risk of chronic inflammation, especially in aging adults.  

Wong CP, Rinaldi NA, Ho E. Zinc deficiency enhanced inflammatory response by increasing immune cell activation and inducing IL6 promoter demethylation. Mol Nutr Food Res. 2015 Feb 5. doi: 10.1002/mnfr.201400761. [Epub ahead of print]

ConsumerLab.com Verifies Purity Of @USANAinc's Active Calcium™ And Vitamin D #Supplements

News Release

SALT LAKE CITY, April 8, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Third-party verification is the new future for some supplement makers, but it's the way it's always been for USANA Health Sciences (NYSE: USNA). A few companies are just now taking the first step to making sure what's on the label is in the product: however, this has been the standard practice for USANA from the beginning. USANA regularly submits its products for third-party testing.



Case in point, ConsumerLab.com - the leading provider of independent product testing -recently evaluated and tested USANA's Active Calcium™ and Vitamin D supplements for their claimed ingredient, heavy metals and ability to disintegrate. Both have earned ConsumerLab.com's stamp of approval.

"We manufacture the majority of our products in-house at our FDA-registered facility and hold all of our third-party suppliers to the same strict standards to ensure that only the purest ingredients are being used," said Dan Macuga, USANA's chief communication officer. "To continue receiving verification from ConsumerLab.com that what is listed on our labels is found in our products exemplifies USANA's commitment to producing nutritionals that consumers can trust."

This is good news for bone health. USANA's Active Calcium™ and Vitamin D supplements promote calcium absorption, help with development and maintenance of bones and teeth, and support health vitamin D levels.*

"We take quality control, potency testing, and product safety very seriously. We encourage everyone to check all nutritional supplement labels and certifications before purchasing or consuming any nutritional product," said Dr. Brian Dixon (Ph.D.), USANA's executive director of health and science education.

Keeping health and nutritional companies honest about product claims since 1999, ConsumerLab.com has tested more than 3,400 products and freely publishes its testing methods for public review to help consumers and healthcare professionals identify the best quality health and nutrition products on the market.

In addition to working with ConsumerLab.com, USANA has received certifications through Good Manufacturing Practices and NSF International-a public health and safety organization-that assures the nutritional company complies with strict standards for quality and safety. More than 700 elite and Olympic athletes trust their health to USANA's NSF and LGC-tested products.

Character Is Your Masterpiece to Build



by Jim Rohn 

Could creating your character be likened to an artist creating a sculpture? I believe that character is not something that just happens by itself, any more than a chisel can create a work of art without the hand of an artist guiding it. In both instances, a conscious decision for a specific outcome has been made. A conscious process is at work. Character is the result of hundreds and hundreds of choices you make that gradually turn who you are, at any given moment, into who you want to be. If that decision-making process is not present, you will still be somebody. You will still be alive but may have a personality rather than a character.


Character is not something you were born with and can't change. In fact, because you weren't born with it, it is something that you must take responsibility for creating. I don't believe that adversity by itself builds character, and I certainly don't think that success erodes it. Character is built by how you respond to what happens in your life—whether it's winning every game, losing every game, getting rich or dealing with hard times. You build character out of certain qualities that you must create and diligently nurture within yourself—just like you would plant and water a seed, or gather wood and build a campfire. You've got to look for those things in your heart and in your gut. You've got to chisel away in order to find them, just like chiseling away the rock to create the sculpture that previously only existed in your imagination.

But do you want to know the really amazing thing about character? If you are sincerely committed to making yourself into the person you want to be, you'll not only create those qualities, but you'll continually strengthen them. And you will recreate them in abundance even as you are drawing on them every day of your life. Character sustains itself and nurtures itself as it is being put to work, tested and challenged. Once it is formed, character will serve as a solid, lasting foundation upon which to build the life you desire.

@USANAinc #CoQ10 Proven Pure By ConsumerLab(dot)com

6 Things That Constitute a Good Life




by Jim Rohn 

The ultimate expression of life is not a paycheck. The ultimate expression of life is not a Mercedes. The ultimate expression of life is not a million dollars, a bank account, or a home. The ultimate expression of life, in my opinion, is living a good life. 

But what constitutes a good life? This is my shortlist: 


1. Productivity. You won't be happy if you don't produce. The game of life is not rest. We must rest, but only long enough to gather strength to get back to productivity. What's the reason for the seasons and the seeds, the soil and the sunshine, the rain and the miracle of life? It's to see what you can do with it—to try your hand to see what you can do.

2. Good friends. Friendship is probably the greatest support system in the world. Don't deny yourself the time to develop it. Nothing can match it. It's extraordinary in its benefit. Friends are those wonderful people who know all about you and still like you. 

3. Your culture. Language, music, ceremonies, traditions, dress - all of that is so vitally important that you must keep it alive. It is the uniqueness of all of us that, when blended together, brings vitality, energy, power, influence, uniqueness and rightness to the world. 

4. Spirituality. It helps to form the foundation of the family that builds the nation. And make sure you study, practice and teach. Don't be careless about the spiritual part of your nature; it's what makes us who we are—different from animal, dogs, cats, birds and mice. 

5. Don't miss anything. My parents taught me not to miss anything. Don't miss the game; don't miss the performance; don't miss the movie; don't miss the show; don't miss the dance. Go to everything you possibly can. Buy a ticket to everything you possibly can. Go see everything and experience all you possibly can. 

6. Your family and the inner circle. Invest in them and they'll invest in you. Inspire them and they'll inspire you. Take care of the details with your inner circle. 

If a father walks out of the house and he can still feel his daughter's kiss on his face all day, he's a powerful man. If a husband walks out of the house and he can still feel the imprint of his wife's arms around his body, he's invincible all day. It's the special stuff with your inner circle that makes you strong and powerful and influential. So don't miss that opportunity. Make sure in your busy day to remember the true purpose and the reasons you do what you do. May you truly live the kind of life that will bring the fruit and rewards that you desire.
