Everyone has experienced the occasional odd sleepless night, complete with tossing and turning. Unfortunately, for some people, it isn’t so odd but rather insists on being part of their routine. However, there are many possible solutions to this problem, including the benefits of a natural hormone known as melatonin. Not only does the human brain make it, but in minimal amounts it is also found in plants and animals. So keep in mind–while melatonin may help you sleep, it is not a man-made sleep aid.

Does Melatonin Work?

Whether or not the intentional consumption of melatonin assists sleep often depends on the individual and the reason they need or want it. However, the onslaught of sleeplessness frequently comes from the production of melatonin being disturbed, either being in an unconventional release pattern or there not being enough of it. When melatonin is released or repressed is dictated by circadian rhythms and exposure to light, so if your body is flung into a different time zone (jet lag), or if you hold a night job, your sleep being under the control of when your body is used to experiencing daylight may be less than ideal.

Jet lag is when a person travels to different time zones, generally by plane. In some cases, the time difference may only be a few hours and this is hardly an issue. However, once it becomes a notable shift it may take your body an inconvenient amount of time to re-adjust (approximately a day for every time zone crossed) and make it difficult to sleep or stay awake at appropriate times. However, that’s where melatonin comes in. If taken at the right time, supplements can ease the adjustment period by raising melatonin levels and thus make you tired.

Benefits of Melatonin

As already harped upon, the major benefit of melatonin supplements, when used correctly, is sleep. There are numerous other uses being researched (such as helping with Alzheimer’s) but you should consult your doctor before using it regularly to help treat something.

Melatonin Safety

Taking melatonin can sometimes interact badly with medications and health problems, so either do your research or consult your doctor! Long-term use (over two months) is also heavily discouraged without the consultation of a doctor. It sometimes comes with side effects, so don’t be too alarmed if you wake up with: headaches, dizziness, daytime sleepiness, and in less common cases discomfort, irritability, confusion, etc. and even short-term feelings of depression. It also should be noted that melatonin often brings vivid dreams or nightmares. Regarding dosage, taking too much has not been shown to be even remotely harmful, it can disrupt circadian rhythms, which is rather inconvenient. Finally, do not operate machinery or drive a vehicle within five hours of taking melatonin supplements. The very idea of taking melatonin supplements is to make you drowsy.

herbalife-transformationsIn the United States and much of the northern hemisphere, September means Autumn and “back to school”. It’s also a time of new beginnings. There’s nothing better than a fresh start and a clean slate. And so it is with Herbalife. Fall is a great time to reconnect with your customers and get them back on the program. Our routines are returning to “normal” and this is a great time to take a look at your business and get started again, with Herbalife and with Herbal Nutrition.

And speaking of “new beginnings”, some of you have emailed us regarding Herbalife’s rule “Retail Websites: U.S. and Canada” which relates to online retailing, and what it means for Herbal Nutrition. There’s no doubt, September 15th will bring some changes to Herbal Nutrition, but we are confident that there’s never been a better time to use Herbal Nutrition for your Herbalife Independent Distributorship!

Retail Websites: U.S. and Canada

If you didn’t see the announcement, effective September 15th, 2014, distributors in the United States and Canada must retail exclusively through GoHerbalife. Here’s the section that will affect your Herbal Nutrition account:

Member Websites

All Members who use the Internet to sell products for delivery in the United States and Canada must do so exclusively through the GoHerbalife platform. Links or redirects from other sites are also not permitted.

In summary, if your customers are going to pay and checkout online, that needs to be done through your goHerbalife account. Online retail is now in the domain of goHerbalife exclusively for distributors in the USA and Canada. However, Herbalife still does permit you to run your own independent website. I’ll include the relevant rules at the end of this post, but the most recent Rules of Conduct (6149-US-31 Rev. 05/14) make it clear that you may do the following:

  • Advertise in Directories (Rule 6.2.9)
  • Use an independent website (Rule 7.2.1)
  • Use third party websites for advertising and promotion (Rule 7.2.4)

Therefore, your Herbal Nutrition account can easily remain compliant with Herbalife’s new retailing rule by simply disabling the online checkout ability. This will still allow you to obtain customer leads from our directory, and then follow up with the customer personally to complete the sale and complete payment. In fact, we will make this process even easier through the use of the new Herbal Nutrition invoicing tool, which will allow you to create a custom program for a new or existing customer, and then easily collect the payment for this order. Direct invoicing (similar to what is offered by Paypal and Propay) is not prohibited by the new rule, and can be an effective tool for collecting payment from your customers.

More than Retailing!

Herbal Nutrition has always been about much more than retailing. We will be working with you to bring your site into compliance with all of Herbalife’s rules by September 15th, but you’ll continue to have access to the following features:

  • The Herbal Nutrition distributor directory
  • Wellness evaluation
  • Recipes
  • Testimonials
  • Herbal Office
  • Work from Home System
  • LoseBig
  • Direct customer invoicing

Thank you for your continued use of Herbal Nutrition! We’re here to help you through this transition and will do everything we can to help you market Herbalife’s fantastic products around the world!

Regards,

Mark Hall and Kevin Smith

Do what your Herbalife coach told you! So you’re new to Herbalife! Welcome! After hearing every convincing speech a distributor gave you, you’re now ready to test the waters on your own. You’re excited to learn the ropes, meet new people, and of course, earn the income promised by hard work. However, you probably encountered a few bumps on the road you chose to tread on your network marketing journey. This is to be expected as there have been a number of misconceptions about this industry brought about by people who employed practices frowned upon by legitimate companies.

In one of our previous blog posts, we published an article sharing tips for first-time multilevel marketers. And while newbies have so much to look forward to in MLM, this business model also comes with challenges. The good news is there are ways to hurdle them, provided that the company you joined is legitimate and that you believe in its philosophy and products. If you’re in Herbalife, don’t worry, you’ve already picked the best company around! In this article, we have included challenges commonly faced by rookies plus tips on overcoming them.

1. Inexperience

It’s easy to feel intimidated by the mere fact that you barely know anything about the field you’re just getting into, but if you think about it, every network marketer started exactly where you are-at the beginning. While there are people who can sell practically anything as if it’s their primary calling, they also had to hone their skills through experience and a series of trial-and-errors.

It is a common practice among proper network marketing firms to provide lessons and training to their new members. But if you want a more stringent way of learning, you can befriend a veteran or skilled member and ask if he or she can serve as your mentor. If your company allows for it, you can also ask your mentor if you could shadow him or her while at work and observe the ways they talk to people and persuade them to either join or buy a product.

2. Finding Prospects

Lead generation is one of the most important aspects of Herbalife because this is how you find people to sell products to. However, not all companies are able to furnish their members a system of finding prospects. One advantage Herbal Nutrition offers is getting a website upon signing up as a member, which is a potent tool in attracting leads. Assuming that you fill your site with relevant information and regular updates about your product, you’ll then be one step ahead of other multilevel marketers.

Another frowned upon practice by some multilevel marketers is by inviting people to have lunch or coffee without telling them the purpose behind the meeting. This may have worked for some, but more people are repelled by this method. If you must invite prospects to a personal meeting, muster the courage to tell them the truth. Prospects are more likely to appreciate your confidence on your product and yourself instead of lying to them blatantly.

3. Sticking to Standard MLM Techniques

Traditional techniques aren’t there for nothing. If, for anything, the reason why they’re considered standard is because they worked for members who have been with the company for a while. On the other hand, this shouldn’t mean that you can’t come up with ideas that can advance your MLM skills. Sometimes, no matter how good customary techniques are, there is still a possibility that it won’t work for everyone, which means that you have to exhaust other options to build your network. You can also incorporate old techniques with fresh ideas and see which works with what.

Take this for example. When you already have a site, you can employ content marketing strategies to boost your lead generation efforts and even sell. Some of the things that you can do include writing blogs, sharing accurate information, and posting photos that your prospects can make use of and share. You can also sign up to social media sites such as LinkedIn and Google+ and make connections with prospects and other MLM professionals. Multilevel marketing mainly deals with expanding your network, which means that you have to exhaust all means possible to communicate and get to know plenty of people.

When trying out new approaches to advance your MLM efforts, make sure that you stick with what is lawful and what you agreed upon signing up as a member. It is also wise to stay ethical while keeping on top of your business. Doing so will help you preserve the name your brand is carrying as well as your reputation as a multilevel marketer.

herbalife_buttonOne of the leading brands and health ambassadors in the world, Herbalife is bent on promoting the switch to living a lifestyle that is healthier and more fulfilling. Along with healthy eating habits and regular exercise, Herbalife is also encouraging people to maximize the possibilities of attaining and keeping a fit body with the nutritional support of their products, such as vitamins, dietary supplements, protein shakes and snacks, as well as hair and skincare products.

The effectiveness of Herbalife’s products, in conjunction up with its campaign for people to pursue a healthier way of life became leverage for them to expand the business from a mere health products chain into a global franchise.

Today, Herbalife products are being distributed in over 90 countries, making them one of the most viable networking business opportunities worldwide. The biggest, and by default, one of the most well-known sources of Herbalife products is Herbal-Nutrition.Net, also known as HNN. To keep up with the global standard and reach established by Herbalife, HNN reaches out to individuals from different countries who will help them distribute Herbalife products to customers in their region. With 15 years in experience with Herbalife under its belt, Herbal-Nutrition.Net has become the go-to name for those who want to try their hand at the Herbalife business.

Becoming a Distributor

A corporate job is not for everyone, and many of those who don’t want to be contented with being employees are usually the ones who take up business and start their own enterprise, no matter the size. One of the things that make HNN an ideal business partner is that signing up is hassle-free. All you need to do is to go to their registration page, fill in your details, and wait for the confirmation that your enrollment is successful.

Distributors of all levels of experience are eligible to use HNN.  When you register you can select your team affiliation and distributorship rank. Included in the list are Distributor, Supervisor, World Team, Global Expansion Team, Millionaire Team, President’s Team, Chairman’s Club, and lastly, the Founder’s Club. The categories depend on how successful you are with the business and how much you’re able to grow your team. The registration also offers a handful of major languages to cater to on-English speaking applicants.

Why Choose Herbal-Nutrition.Net?

Being a member of the HNN network has a wealth of benefits. Signing up will entitle interested parties to their own product website which only costs around $13 USD per month. This website is what the members will use to promote Herbalife products and even publish testimonies and updates about the brand.

HNN also takes pride in the number of years it has put in to become the leading independent source for all things Herbalife. But for HNN to put this to good use, it intends to share whatever expertise it has gained to their members, whether existing or beginners.

Herbalife, as the provider of the products distributed by HNN members, is committed to creating quality and effective products, which in turn gives its customers the extraordinary results they can testify about. Positive reviews are also one of the things that HNN is proud of, as plenty of their customers had great experiences with Herbalife products, as well as with the excellent service provided by HNN.

HNN also offers a lot of different means to make transactions with distributors easier. For instance, they provide discount coupons, different designs for the product website, and multiple payment options for customers. They also feature outstanding distributors from around the world, and welcome suggestions from members.

In addition, HNN provides additional training to their members through instructional videos.  But this isn’t the only way HNN is taking advantage of the Internet. The Herbalife Facebook application is also one of the latest additions adapted by HNN, so that it’ll be easier for members to feature the products in social media.

These benefits are just some of the few that partners can enjoy when they become a part HNN.

Succeeding at Being an Herbalife Distributor

While being a part of Herbal-Nutrition.Net is a true benefit for all distributors, there are ways for members to ensure additional success. Here are some ideas that distributors can do to become successful at selling Herbalife products.

1.) Master the marketing plan.

A marketing plan is imperative to any business venture because it is the material that will direct the entrepreneurs to the proper execution and management of the business. It is important that they know who their target audience is and the best approach to use when inviting them to try the products being sold. Herbalife furnishes its distributors with a specific marketing plan which they can use when introducing the merchandise to customers or even potential recruits.

2.     Be a living testimony.

If the members must be convincing, they need to become a living proof of how effective Herbalife products are. It would be a great idea if the distributors themselves use the same products they are selling, since it would be easier for them to teach customers how to do it themselves and to persuade them how effective the goods are. When the target customers see that the items being sold to them are indeed helpful, explaining to them the benefits wouldn’t be as hard.

3.     Share a unique story.

One of the things Herbalife products are known for is its ability to help users turn over a new leaf by achieving health goals and a refreshed perspective about themselves. Distributors who have gone through the same thing should be able to relate their experiences to potential customers. It doesn’t always have to be dramatic but it should be real. Unique stories can also be integrated to the marketing plan so that the approach can be a personalized one and something that the customers can relate to.

4.     Ask for referrals.

Assuming that the customers are satisfied with the Herbalife products they’ve been using, distributors can ask their customers if they could talk to their friends about the benefits of the merchandise. As far as networking is concerned, a recommendation can go a long way in getting more people to try the products. . Also, expanding a network doesn’t only mean that there will be more customers for the distributor, they can also be recruited as new members and give them the opportunity to make selling Herbalife a means to earn a living.

5.     Go online.

 Apart from the retail website that comes with the membership, distributors can also use social media sites to spread the information about Herbalife goods to more people. Social networking is also an ideal place to meet new people and interact with existing customers. By engaging in constant communication with customers, distributors can enjoy a vast and substantial network to which they can deal business with.

Just like any other business, being an Herbalife distributor though Herbal-Nutrition.net may not be easy at first, but once members master the products and build a consistent network, everything else will follow. Over time, they will find that the best benefit is not only enjoying a healthier lifestyle, but also influencing others to experience the same beneficial changes—all while earning additional income.

herbalife_distributionHerbalife has been receiving a lot of press lately for various reasons, but I found this amazing photo gallery on the LA Times website which shows some “never before seen” images from inside the Herbalife Carson, California distribution facility. You also get to take a look inside the Torrance testing lab, and see local distributors picking up product in person.
The Lake Forest manufacturing facility can also be seen, where a worker is handling Formula 1, which is Herbalife’s most popular product. You also get to take a look inside several nutrition clubs from the Los Angeles area!

Local Herbalife DistributorOne of the things that people may be surprised to know about Herbalife is that you can’t purchase it in any store. You might be able to find some from a local distributor at a local nutrition club, but because of Herbalife rules and regulations, those aren’t always advertised. If you don’t know what you’re looking for, you might drive right by one.

The next thing you might think is that you can buy it on amazon or ebay. This is the worse place to purchase, because you don’t know anything about the distributor who is selling and the products may be expired, or worse, counterfeit. Herbalife does not permit active distributors to sell via these methods, so if you see products on any online auction site, you can rest assured that it isn’t fresh.

So, where can you purchase Herbalife? There’s really only one option. Your local Herbalife Independent Distributor. However, it may seem like it’s hard to find a distributor, because they aren’t listed at Herbalife.com. There’s really only one place to find a local distributor, and that’s right here at http://herbal-nutrition.net.

Just click here, and enter in your city name or zip code and you’ll see a list of active, reputable distributors who are ready to help you find the products that are right for you. What are you waiting for? Let’s get your products today!
