Direct Selling Association – The Importance of LifeWave’s Membership

Anyone familiar with LifeWave knows that providing efficacious products is one of our highest priorities as a company. As evidenced by our membership in the Direct Selling Association (DSA), this same commitment to integrity also applies to how we conduct business.

The DSA is the national trade association of leading firms that manufacture and distribute goods and services sold directly to consumers. Membership in this revered organization requires adherence to a strong set of ideals.

In fact, the DSA’s Code of Ethics is the foundation of its commitment to ethical business practices and consumer service. Every member company pledges to abide by these standards and procedures as a condition of admission and continuing membership.

It’s important to note that our connection to the DSA also goes beyond our membership. LifeWave President, Mike Collins, filled executive leadership roles for two of Network Marketing’s largest and most successful companies before joining our company. During this time, he was also an active participant in the DSA, and served as a member of the Board of Directors of the Direct Selling Education Foundation for six years.

“This important chapter in my career taught me a whole new approach to management, one that encourages and incentivizes people towards greatness they often don’t even know they have,” says Mike. “It also made me intimately familiar with the DSA, the preeminent organization for ensuring ethical business practices in our industry.”

LifeWave Members should find comfort in knowing that our company so naturally aligns with the DSA’s mission. Further, that our executive Leaders are extremely well versed in its respective requirements and protocols. Of course, we’re equally fortunate to have Members who uphold these ever-important values.

 

Great Tips for Enrolling New Members

To enroll new Members in the back office, start by clicking the “Organization” tab at the top of the page and then choosing “Enroll New” in the left-side navigation. Once they agree to our Electronic Consent form and choose a country of residence, they can then choose the enrollment package that’s most suitable.

Next, enrollees are required to enter personal information for their business center. It’s crucial that this personal information is accurate, so please ensure that new Members are as thorough and careful as possible when completing this part of the process.

The next page lists Autoship options, which is a great way to remain in active status without having to login to the system and place a monthly order. Those not interested in our Autoship program can continue to the next page, where they can add additional items to the enrollment package order. This saves them from having to place a separate order and pay additional shipping.

Next comes the Order Confirmation page, which is for verifying the order, choosing a preferred shipping method and entering the chosen form of payment.

Lastly, please be sure to set a Preferred Placement before enrolling new Members. Do this by logging in to the back office and choosing “My Profile” in the top right portion of the page and then “Preferred Placement” in the left-side navigation. To finish, use the pull-down option to choose either “Left Leg” or “Right Leg”, and click the “Save Changes” button.

Please reach out to LifeWave Customer Service with any questions or concerns, and good luck enrolling new Members!

Use Social Media to Promote Your LifeWave Business

Building your LifeWave business and engaging in social media share some striking similarities. Both begin with a single person and lead to numerous connections, which can lead to a virtually endless amount of more connections. And like your LifeWave business, there are some pretty easy ways to expand your network using social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter.

Here are five helpful tips* on using social media to maximize your LifeWave business:

  1. To start with, keep it simple – Select either Facebook or Twitter, and familiarize yourself on how to use that particular site. Once you’re comfortable, then consider moving on to another outlet/site.
  2. Avoid personal memoirs – Only write about your experiences if it’s relevant on a business/networking level, and avoid shameless product promotions. Providing valuable content will help your network of followers grow.
  3. Share, share and share some more – Sharing valuable information is one of the most important ways to use social media effectively. One of LifeWave’s main goals with social media is posting content that’s inspiring enough for our Members to share. This provides you with engaging information to post on your personal business pages, and saves you time searching for content elsewhere.
  4. Align your business and social media objectives – The goal is to inform and educate about your LifeWave business and ultimately attract more prospects. You won’t see amazing numbers overnight, but a little patience and persistence will pay off. Ultimately, the more these two endeavors align, the better your business results will be.
  5. Build on your success – Review how people react to each post. Instead of reinventing the wheel, keep doing what works best. Impactful content will generate more ‘likes’ and ‘shares’ on Facebook and more ‘retweets’ and ‘mentions’ on Twitter.

Preventing the Impact of Negative Words

It’s a word we dislike from the earliest stages of life, one that releases dozens of stress-producing hormones and neurotransmitters into our bodies. In fact, the word “no” is not only negative in connotation, but also has an undesirable impact on those who say it, hear it or witness it in various forms.

Surprisingly, just seeing the word for less than a second instantly hinders logic, reason, language processing and communication. When increased to a whole list of negative words, anxious or depressed people feel worse, damaging fundamental elements that normalize memory, feelings and emotions.1

 Imagine the impact this can have on your LifeWave business and personal relationships. Saying “no” with even the slightest frown releases more stress chemicals in your brain and the listener’s brain, increasing nervousness and irritability. 2  Most importantly, this negative interaction ultimately weakens cooperation and trust.

On the flipside, optimistic words can turn negative thoughts into positive affirmations. But the brain must first overcome its natural tendency to ignore or barely respond to positive words and thoughts. 3

To conquer this, it’s recommended to repetitively and willfully produce as many positive thoughts as possible. To help business and personal relationships thrive, generate at least five positive messages for each negative expression.

Here’s some great food for thought: choose words carefully and say them slowly. This enables you to interrupt the brain’s inclination for negativity. Repeating positive words like love, peace and compassion lower your physical and emotional stress. 4  You’ll feel better, have a longer life, and foster deeper, more trusting relationships at home and at work.
