I had the opportunity recently to attend USANA’s “Training with the Masters” event in San Antonio. It featured presentations from USANA leaders, as well as insight from John Fleming, publisher of Direct Selling News, and Dani Johnson, inspirational entrepreneur. Check out this blog post for more from the event.
Following John’s presentation, I had the chance to talk to him for a minute about the importance of social media in business in general, and in our industry in particular. It’s something he touched on during his training, but I wanted to share the following video, which he recorded especially for What’s Up, USANA?
So in the latest USANA Social Media Tip, take a listen to hear not only why you should be investing time and energy in social media but also how you should go about doing it.
After all, as we’ve said in this space before, social media is not your business — your business is your business. If you’re not utilizing these tools effectively and efficiently, they become useless in helping you try to accomplish your goals.
“You can’t use the tool to commercialize yourself or the product. Using social media functionality is about sharing your story. Why are you feeling so good about the choices that you have made, the products that you’re using?” John says. “This is not about trying to sell, about trying to recruit. It’s about telling your story.”

Thank you again to John for taking time to share his thoughts with our readers.
