Sneak Peek: Web Portal Toolbar and More!

Next week, get ready to see a few new enhancements to your Market America web portal.  First up — in order to improve our search engine optimization (seo) efforts, anytime someone enters your web portal name. For example, www.marketamerica.com/loren, their website URL will now change to www.marketamerica.com.  While it may not look like they’re still on  your web portal — rest assured, they are.

This leads me to the second update — which is a major update (and pretty exciting in my opinion). Now, anytime you or your customers visit your Market America web portal or any Market America affiliated site (Ex: nutraMetrix, mini-websites, etc…) you’ll begin to see a toolbar at the bottom (see pic).

Over the past few weeks, we’ve received a number of questions on the proper ways to share videos that you see on YouTube.  Sharing videos is a great way to let your friends in on what it is that has been keeping you so busy.  It is also important from a social networking standpoint, because it helps spread information that you want to get out to the world.

The Difference Between Success and Failure

The difference between success and failure is really simple. The individual who succeeds simply does what the individual who doesn’t succeed did not do, PERIOD.  Do you have tickets for the International Convention, and for the new people you’re going to want to bring? They’re just about gone.

The excitement has never been greater coming off of the NMTSS Blitz tour and into the International Convention. The ma Cashback program is soaring and there is a tidal wave of traffic, orders and growth. I sure hope you are sending the invite to everyone on your e-mail list and in your contact files (try using the share function on the Portal to share with your contacts through e-mail). Read More

Connecting with JR Ridinger and Loren Ridinger

My Market America family is getting bigger and bigger each day!  Just the other day, I mentioned the sell out dilemma with our events and how important it was to get your tickets before they are sold-out. Well, that same dilemma has also started trickling over into the social networking realm.  So much so that many of you are probably waiting on me to accept you as a friend. Unfortunately, my hands are tied because Facebook limits the number of friends I can have at 5,000 friends.

In lieu of this, I’ve setup a fanpage so that you can still connect with me — both at Market America and in my personal life. Read More
