Waterdown, Ontario (PRWEB) September 23, 2007
Launched in October 2006, http://www.yourhealthandwellness.ca provides customers and sales associates access to the world's leading nutritional cleansing programs. In its first 12 months of operation the site has grown beyond its original target market of Canada and now services customers around the world. In celebration of its one year anniversary all new customers during the months of September and October will receive free book from one of North America's leading motivational speakers and authors.
Owner Julie Traill explains what's different about the nutritional cleansing approach to weight loss, "When most think of cleansing they usually think of a colon cleanse. Nutritional Cleansing is very different. Instead of flushing the body, our programs flood the body with rich nutrients and natural supplements. Our programs encourage toxins that build up in our bodies to break down allowing fat cells that have built up around these impurities to release. Weight loss is actually the result of cleaning up our bodies."
Direct Marketing Goes Online
By leveraging an international direct marketing company and a few modern tools, Julie has managed to pull something off that many dream about. "Traditionally direct sales are made through word of mouth locally, referrals, home parties, etc. Traditional network marketing isn't really something that I could squeeze in day to day. We have a very active household between our five kids and my husband's full time job so we've structured our business in such a way that I can allocate the pockets of time that do come available throughout the day." Currently Julie works with customers and associates in Canada, the United States, Hong Kong and has just recently expanded to Australia and New Zealand. Customers can purchase retail directly from her site or for a nominal fee (as low as $36/year) sign-up for wholesale access giving them discounts on product and the option to sell these products to others.
Tools of the Trade
Julie's home office is a virtual one. Customers learn about the program benefits online though http://www.yourhealthandwellness.ca and typically include telephone consultations and email correspondence. "The launch of the site and frequent updates quickly proved to be the right approach for us. Once we switched from a traditional telephone line to one based on VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) the world really opened up to us. Customer inquiries or cleanse coaching sessions over the phone now carry little to no cost regardless of location. We've set-up a toll free number that routes incoming voice messages to email so I can pick them up from anywhere with my blackberry device."
With a growing customer and distribution base from all walks of life including stay-at-home moms, wellness professionals and small business owners and no geographic limits, the growth opportunity is endless. "Some mornings I wake up to emails from other time zones and it blows me away. I managed to fall in line with a great company, leverage technology and positioned myself to meet people that have so much in common with me. Twelve months ago I never would have believed that I'd be where I am today... and to think it all started with a personal issue that has plagued me for so many years." Twelve months in and Julie is now within 25 pounds of her goal weight and never plans to look back. When asked what advice she gives to others about her recent success "Believe it or not it's that whole 'The Secret' thing. We're all capable of doing anything we set our minds to!"
