#USANA Social Media Policy Update


Updated Social Media Policy

As a USANA leader and owner of your own business, you live out loud. You share your USANA lifestyle on social media, and we’ve even given you hashtags to tie those conversations together. Living your life and sharing it helps inspire others to make a change, but it hasn’t always been easy translating what you share into actionable, business-building results.

We want to help, and we believe an update to our social media policy will grant you more freedom to take action in building your business online.

This global update to USANA’s Policies & Procedures provides an excellent opportunity for you and your teams to share your stories in a more comprehensive way through social media.
For example, you can include calls to action and links to your personal website, and you may also promote your meetings and events (individual or corporate), products, and the business.

Old policy—you could share your story, but not issue a call to action
  • “People will spend $5 a day on a cup of coffee but wouldn’t dream of spending that much on vitamins. If you are someone like me, you can’t put a price on health. I am grateful I found the best health supplement on the market with USANA and I trust my health to them.”
  • “I had a life-changing weekend at USANA’s International Convention. I was inspired by thousands of like-minded entrepreneurs and have made the decision to go full time in this business. I am excited for my future with USANA.”
New policy—you may continue to share your story, and can also issue a call to action
  • “People will spend $5 a day on a cup of coffee but wouldn’t dream of spending that much on vitamins. If you are someone like me, you can’t put a price on health. That’s why I take USANA® CellSentials™ to help get the right vitamins and antioxidants my body needs to function at its best. If you are interested in learning more about USANA, please visit my website or message me for a follow-up meeting .”
  • “I had a life-changing weekend at USANA’s International Convention. I was inspired by thousands of like-minded entrepreneurs and have made the decision to go full time in this business. I am excited for my future with USANA. If you are looking to improve your life by owning your own home-based business and take control of your health, visit my website or call me at .”
These are just two examples that are now allowed through this updated policy. For more examples, tips, and answers to frequently asked questions, please refer to the full update.

As we continue to progress and develop throughout the world, your story is an integral part of that growth. We want you to share your story and have the freedom to invite others to take part in this fantastic journey.

Please feel free to reach out to the ethics and education team at ethics@usana.com, if you have any questions.

Thank you,

Dan Whitney
USANA Vice President of Ethics and Market Expansion

#USANA Retail Shopper Lead Generation Policy

Retail Shopper Lead Distribution

You work hard to build your business, and we want to reward you. To coordinate with the launch of our new shopping cart and retail sales experience, we’re changing our lead generation rules to give you a better chance to receive leads collected through retail sales.

Under the new lead generation model, the more new Associates or Preferred Customers (PC) you enroll, the more leads you can receive. You will have the potential to receive leads equal to the number of Associates or PCs you enrolled in the previous calendar month. (Basically, we’re immediately rewarding you for what you’ve accomplished in the past 30 days or so.)

Leads generated through USANA.com and retail sales will be placed in a pool and distributed based on the number of Associates who qualify and the number of new enrollees they have.

In order to qualify for retail leads, you will need to meet the following requirements:
  • Be an active Associate in good standing
  • Be PaceSetter qualified at any level
  • Enroll at least one new Associate or Preferred Customer who purchased an item that has volume of one or greater in the previous month
If you have any questions, please contact USANA customer service.

Happy New Year,

USANA

USANA Goal Setting and Action Plans



- by Pete Zdanis

We spend a lot of time working with new people in our group helping them develop their goals and action plans for their USANA business.

We always ask them to make the initial effort to put their goals and plans in writing, and then share them with us for review and suggestions. The main reason we do this is because, unless they develop their goals themselves, they will never take ownership of them and will likely not take the necessary actions to reach the goals.

What we usually discover in the first draft we receive from new distributors is one of two extremes:

o Very general and vague - "I want to earn $1,000.00 per week in USANA."

o Extremely detailed and mind-numbing "business plans" which would require a Harvard MBA to understand.

The first example is far too general, and doesn't provide any detail on what must be done to achieve the goal. At the end of every day, there would be no way to measure if you made any progress toward your goal.

The second example is far too detailed, and usually overwhelms people and causes "paralysis by analysis". It would be impractical to review an elaborate business plan daily to measure progress.

What's the solution?:

Here’s The Solution:

Start with one or two high level goals with a specific target date, and then "work backward" to develop more specific action plans to achieve the goal(s).

For example:

Primary Goal:

"Become a Gold Director in 12 months."

Good. That's a specific goal with a defined time frame.

Now, let's break that down into smaller, manageable actions steps that are needed to achieve the goal.

For example, we know that the average Gold Director has personally sponsored 30 to 40 new Associates.

So, let's define an action step, or secondary goal, to reach the primary goal:

Secondary Goal: 

"Personally sponsor three new Associates per month".

OK. That will certainly get us to our primary goal, but - How do we sponsor three new Associates per month?

Well, let's break it down into even smaller steps................

There are many, many different ways and methods to sponsor new Associates - Warm market, cold market, social media, classified ads, purchased leads, etc., etc. The various methods, combined with the individual Associates’ belief, confidence and experience level, make it difficult to determine specifically, at least initially, how many presentations any given Associate would have to make to sponsor one new Associate.

For the sake of this exercise, let's simply assume that they would sponsor one out of every ten people they make a presentation to.

Note: By "presentation", we are referring to a Communication Edge item, an H&F Meeting, a one-on-one H&F Presentation in person, an information pack sent by snail mail or e-mail, or a telephone presentation using the H&F Presentation, Fast Facts, etc. Therefore, we would need to make thirty presentations in one month in order to sponsor three new Associates in a month.

Our third level goal or action step would be:

"Make 30 presentations per month."

OK - Hang in there, we're almost done.............

Not everyone we talk to is interested in learning more about becoming involved in USANA. Therefore, we're obviously going to need to contact more than 30 people in order to schedule 30 presentations. Again, the ratio of contacts to presentations varies widely based on many variables, similar to those listed above. But, for the sake of example, let's assume that half of the people we contact would be interested in learning more about USANA, i.e., would be willing to view / attend / listen to a presentation.

Our fourth level goal or action step would be:

"Make 60 contacts per month." (Or an average of two per day)

NOW we have something to grab on to. 

We now know that, in order to become a Gold Director in one year, (Primary Goal) you would need to make an average of two contacts per day (Single Daily Action Plan – SDA).

At the end of every day, you can now look back at your activities for the day, ask yourself if you took needed action to reach your primary goal, provide an answer, and rate yourself:

o Zero Contacts - "F" - failed for the day.

o One Contact - "C" - did okay, but need to do better tomorrow.

o Two Contacts - "A" - achieved my goal, and am on track to reach my primary goal.

o More than two Contacts - "A+" - I may reach my primary goal faster than my target date.

CAUTION: Don't get hung up about the numbers in the above examples. They are simply that - examples. 

As you gain in experience and knowledge, you may find that more than half of the people you contact would be willing to learn more about USANA, and that more than 10% of the presentations you make will result in a signup. 

In fact, I KNOW that will be the case.

Best of success!

Holiday Business Building Tips for Network Marketers

Some Thoughts on Holiday Business Building


I’m hearing it already from some of my fellow network marketers:

  • “The holidays are here, and I’m taking a break from business building until after the first of the year.”

  • “I don’t want to ‘pester’ people with information about my business during the holidays.”

  • “No one wants to hear about my products or business at this time of year.”

Do you hear yourself in any or all of the above statements?

If you do, let me suggest that you need to stop rationalizing and assuming, get a major reality check and undergo a significant attitude adjustment before it’s too late.

Successful network marketers understand that the way to build their business is to always put the prospect first and themselves second.

In other words, if we can show people how our products and/or business can make their lives better or solve a problem for them, our business success is sure to follow, no matter what time of year it may be.

Never “assume” that everyone you meet wants to hear your business presentation without being asked if they are interested.

However, most people are looking for solutions to problems that you can help them solve. Many of them will be open to your help, if you offer it the right way.

As you meet people between now and the end of the year, and re-connect with friends and family at holiday gatherings, make it a point to take a sincere interest in them and their lives.

Ask them open-ended questions about their family, occupation, recreational activities, etc.

People love to talk about themselves and what is of interest to them.

As you listen to what they have to say, you will certainly hear situations which you can help them with through your products and/or business.

It then becomes a matter of you simply offering them a solution to their problem(s) or a way for them to get something they need.

For example:

  • If I could show you a way to create a college fund to allow Marcy to be able to attend the school of her choice in three years when she graduates from high school, would you be interested?

  • If I could show you a product that could help eliminate the joint pain you are experiencing, would you be willing to take a look?

  • If I could show you an opportunity to generate income which would allow your wife to quit both of her part-time jobs would you be able to find five minutes to view a video which explains how you can do that?

  • If I could show you a simple system to allow you to lose those last 25 pounds, would that be of interest to you?

You get the idea.

My message to you is that if you can find excuses to stop business building during the winter holidays, you will find excuses to stop business building during Easter, Memorial Day, Arbor Day, Labor Day and any other time of the year.

It also means that you really don’t understand the concept of network marketing and are doing it all wrong.

If you would like to learn more about how you can easily become a master network marketing recruiter and business builder, go to http://zdanisusanapowerteam.blogspot.com/2016/09/the-four-steps.html

In the meantime, get your head out of your assumptions, put your prospects first, and enjoy your business growth!
