Utilizing Twitter to Grow Your Business is Easier Than You Think

A couple of months ago, I wrote an article for the Powerline Magazine outlining a step-by-step guide for using Twitter to find success as an entrepreneur. Over the past few weeks I have been working diligently to grow my own personal Twitter following, while additionally putting those best practices in place for the Market America account. In a short amount of time, I have seen tremendous results, and I think you will too if you follow these simple tweeting tactics:


1. Jump in feet first. Twitter is simple and it’s free, so getting started is as easy as the click of mouse. Find twitter.com to create a personal [or business] profile. Read More

Pinterest Fix! Making sure items you pin link directly back to your portal and not SHOP.COM

Many UFOs are having the same issue: pinning directly from their portal does NOT direct people back to their portal, but to the SHOP.COM site, thus taking away the sale they would have made. This is caused by the fact that the images are not hosted in your portal specifically, but on the SHOP.COM website. As of right now, the fix requires one extra step, but it will ensure that you are credited with each sale made from your Pinterest pins!

To fix the issue, when you pin from your portal, follow these easy steps:

  1. Use the “Pin It!” button installed in your browser*, and select the image of the item you wish to PIN.
  2. Read More

Using Persistence and Accountability to Find Success as an Entrepreneur

In a company with a track record of success, there is great opportunity for each member to individually succeed. That success, however, hinges on each individual’s willingness to work for it, and work hard. With a pin level of Professional Coordinator, Heather Pilibosian has obviously put in a great deal of work to get where she is.

Recently, we had the opportunity to interview her, find out what drives her as an UnFranchise® Owner, and learn how she found her success.

How long have you been with Market America and what inspired you to become an UnFranchise Owner?

I am 34 years young and a graduate of The University of New Hampshire with a Bachelor’s Degree from the Whittemore School of Business and Economics.  I always told myself, in order to secure my financial future; I needed to be my own boss.  Having watched my parents pioneer their UnFranchise Business years prior, I always knew the company was both viable and profitable.  I began building my UnFranchise Business part-time.  Within the first year my part-time UnFranchise income matched what I was earning with my full-time job!*  At that point, I realized I was happily unemployable, and fired my boss!

An Introduction to Pinterest

If you haven’t yet used Pinterest, I’m sorry. No, I actually am apologizing to you (and to your partner, your dog, your kids, and everyone you know). I basically just stole your plans for the night. You see, Pinterest is a bit like Pringles: once you “pop,” you can’t stop.

What is Pinterest, you ask? Anything that exists in visual form (including text of famous quotes!) can be shared on Pinterest. For example: as you’re browsing the internet, you may come across items to redecorate your living room. Every time you spot an item that belongs in that space, one click “pins” it to your personal virtual bulletin board, for you to plan, and for everyone to see! Read More

A Big Night with Alejandro Sanz and the Spanish Dream Team

Loren and I had an incredible meeting with the Spanish Dream Team and UFO Alejandro Sanz & Raquel. The group represents an organization and following of 30,000 people joining Market America in Miami for a month of building and training!

Creating Opportunity through Social Networking

The Social Shopping Revolution is taking the world of sales and marketing by storm. Customers are turning to their social networks more and more, for word-of-mouth recommendations and product reviews. They don’t want to waste time shopping for products they know nothing about – they want to hear about the experiences of others. Shoppers of the social media era want to be a dynamic part of the product experience.

Facebook has become an incredible tool for shoppers and entrepreneurs alike to find the right products at the right time, all while getting to enjoy the experience with their friends. All it takes for a business owner to skyrocket to success is a little innovation and interaction. Read More
