Do you struggle with talking to people about your Herbalife business?
You’re not alone.
Getting good at the Herbalife business opportunity isn’t simple.
It’s not terribly hard.
It’s just that it requires you to learn several new skills that you probably never needed in your past.
Getting good at attracting the best prospects and selling Herbalife products or the opportunity takes a quality skillset in:
- Leadership skills
- Communication skills
The good news?
You can learn these skills as you work toward improving your ability to talk to people about your Herbalife business opportunity.
The Internet is a great place to find potential customers for Herbalife.
However, it’s easy to get lost in the online world.
In this post, I’ll provide you with the marketing tips and strategies that will help you promote your Herbalife opportunity as part of a plan.
Specifically, I’ll show you how to find real people online to talk to about Herbalife without bugging your friends and family.
How to Promote Your Herbalife Business
Opening up the door so you can talk professionally to people about your Herbalife opportunity isn’t as easy as the company or your upline always makes it out to be, is it?
The good news is that the Internet makes it easier to sell Herbalife when compared to using older, outdated methods like contacting your friends and family list.
But, there are some simple steps you can take to make sure you’re using the right social media sites and marketing methods to find people who might be interested in your products or business opportunity.
In this post, we’ll look at how to use Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Pinterest, and YouTube as powerful tools for finding real leads online.
Social Media Marketing For An Herbalife Distributor
Here’s a key piece of social media training that will help all of the below advice work best for you:
If you want to get more people interested in an international business pack or buying Herbalife products, then don’t ever use product pics on your social media platforms.
Because your social media contacts will turn to Google or YouTube to research Herbalife.
A few days later, they’ll buy from another Herbalife rep and you’ll lose out on any direct sales you hope to make.
Facebook Marketing for Herbalife Distributors
When used correctly, Facebook can be a distributor’s best friend when looking for people to talk to about their Herbalife business opportunity.
Here are some tips for using Facebook to attract people to talk about Herbalife.
- Post valuable content.
- Don’t post articles about your products or business opportunity.
- Post information and lifestyle pictures of yourself so people get a chance to see the person behind your brand.
- Use Facebook ads strategically.
- Target your audience correctly and test different ad types to see what works best for you.
- Create a custom Facebook landing page.
- When someone clicks on one of your Facebook ads, don’t send them to your general website.
- Send them to a custom Facebook landing page that’s designed specifically for Herbalife leads.
Your landing page should have all the information someone would need if they’re interested in learning more about Herbalife, such as:
- How to become a distributor
- Product information
- Testimonials from people already seeing success in the business.
LinkedIn Marketing for Herbalife Distributors
LinkedIn is a professional social media site. Use it to attract people who want to work from home or start their own business.
When used correctly, LinkedIn is a great way to find leads that might become your next customer or recruit.
Here are some tips for using LinkedIn to attract people to talk about Herbalife:
- Create a professional profile that’s complete and up-to-date.
- Your profile should accurately represent what you do and who you are.
- Include keywords in your profile that people interested in MLM or network marketing might search for, such as “work from home,” “entrepreneur,” or your city.
- Post content that’s valuable to other people.
- Don’t post articles about your products or opportunity on LinkedIn. Post information and lifestyle pictures instead.
- Join groups that are relevant to what you do. Use a LinkedIn search to find different groups related to Herbalife, entrepreneurship, work-from-home opportunities, etc.
Twitter Marketing for Herbalife Distributors
Here are some tips on how to use Twitter to find success with Herbalife.
Post tweets that are valuable to other people in the community.
Again, don’t Tweet about your products or opportunity. Tweet helpful information that makes a difference for others.
Follow relevant accounts, but don’t follow too many. Only follow the accounts of people you think might have an interest in your products or business opportunity.
Join different Twitter chats relevant to what you do. You can find these on sites like Tweet Chat or Tweet Grid. These chats will help you find people on Twitter who become your next best-fit leads.
Use hashtags correctly when tweeting and make sure they’re relevant to what you do or sell.
Pinterest Marketing For Herbalife Distributors
Pinterest is another social media site that’s great for attracting people interested in health or who become the next ones to fill out an international business pack.
Here are some tips for using Pinterest to market yourself and Herbalife.
- Create boards around your product topics.
- When people visit your Pinterest page, make sure they experience value within seconds.
- Keep your boards well-organized and filled with pins that are valuable to other people in the community.
- Include keywords in your board titles and descriptions that attract people who want to know more about direct sales, health, nutrition, or weight loss.
- Make sure you’re pinning interesting lifestyle pictures of yourself.
3 other tips to keep in mind:
- People aren’t just interested in what you do, they’re also interested in who you are.
- Join groups that are relevant to what you do. You can join different groups on Pinterest that are relevant to Herbalife, entrepreneurship, or network marketing.
- Make sure you’re interacting with people in these groups by repinning their pins and commenting on their pins. This will help get your name out there and attract the right kind of followers.
YouTube Marketing For Herbalife Distributors
YouTube is a great site for marketing Herbalife and making direct sales. It allows you to share videos of yourself talking about your product benefits or the business opportunity.
Here are some tips on how to use YouTube to market your Herbalife opportunity.
Create a channel and make sure all of your videos are related to the benefits of the Herbalife products or earning extra money.
Don’t upload videos about Herbalife itself or the products on YouTube.
Keep your content generally about nutrition, skincare, health, and losing weight so people want to opt-in for further help.
Remember, people don’t want to watch an hour-long video about Herbalife. They want to watch videos that are helpful and informative.
Include keywords in your title and a description of your videos to help your best prospects find them.
Include a link to your website at the end of every video so people can visit it if they want more information about you and what you do.
Make sure your videos are high quality and filmed in a professional setting. People will be more likely to watch your videos if they’re of good quality and look like they were professionally made.
Include a Call To Action at the end of every video, such as “visit my website for more information” or “click the link below for a free resource.”
Take Immediate Action In Herbalife (Talk To People)
In my opinion, using social media is your best way to start talking to people about the Herbalife business opportunity.
From there, you want to eventually automate much of your prospecting using a blog or website (more on this below).
However, that doesn’t mean it’s the only way to succeed or that you shouldn’t do some “hand-to-hand combat” if you’re at the beginning of your journey as an Herbalife independent distributor.
The key is taking immediate and massive action.
One way to take immediate action is to potentially do a little “recruit as you go” or use the 3-foot rule.
Personally, I don’t like these methods.
With that said, I used them back when I was brand new to MLM.
And Herbalife gives you a great way to do it where even an introverted person can wear the pin.
Wear Your Herbalife Button
Wearing your Herbalife button everywhere you go opens up product sales and business opportunity discussions that never would have materialized otherwise.
It’s a great way to let everyone know you’re an Herbalife distributor without doing any “janky” or weird things.
Basically, it’s a good conversation starter that should get more business cards in the hands of more people.
If someone asks about what the button means, simply tell them that you are part of an amazing business opportunity where you have your own business but don’t need any start-up capital.
Again, it’s a way to use the “three-foot rule” without doing anything proactively.
If you’re an introvert like me, you’ll like that part.
Get the conversation started, give the person your business card, and then use these scripts to set up the follow up discussion.
As Herbalife says on their website:
“Wear your button with pride and start a conversation with someone new every day. You never know who you might meet or what they could bring to your business.”
Do I recommend doing this forever?
No, just do it as an immediate way to get the momentum started while getting your social media accounts and online presence built out.
Succeed In Herbalife – 5 Quick Tips
Here are five additional tips to help you make money more effectively than most people in Herbalife.
Think Like a Professional Network Marketer
Mindset is a huge part of success in a network marketing business.
It’s important to think like a professional network marketer so you have an advantage over the competition.
A great way of doing this is by thinking about your “best prospects.”
- Who are they?
- What do they look like?
- How old are they?
- Are there certain locations that most of them live in or hang out at?
All of these questions contribute to your “best prospect” profile.
Study Online Marketing
There are a few reasons why you might consider studying online marketing.
First, it’s helpful for lead generation and finding people who want what you have to offer.
Second, you’ll learn how to create a website or blog (more on this below) that will help you attract quality leads and market your Herbalife business opportunity.
Third, effective online marketing can help you build relationships with people all over the world who may want to join your team and become distributors in Herbalife.
Fourth, it’s an easy way to learn how to automate your marketing and prospecting so you can work on building relationships.
Focus On Product Sales
This is something that a lot of network marketers forget.
To make money in Herbalife, you must become focused on product sales.
Yes, the business opportunity is amazing and can help you create financial freedom, but if you don’t have products to offer then you won’t make any money.
It’s as simple as that.
There are a few ways to go about selling products, including retail sales and business opportunity sales.
Focus On Recruiting a Team
The most money in Herbalife is made by building a large team of distributors.
Yes, product sales are important, but the real money is in building a downline.
This takes time and effort, but if you work on it, then you can be very successful.
Build Your Branded Online Presence
As a Herbalife distributor, you need to build your brand and online presence.
Above, I mentioned building a website or blog as part of your overall process. Let’s dig into that in more detail.
Create a Website or Blog
One of the most important things you should be doing as part of your Herbalife business opportunity education is automating lead generation.
Having a Facebook page, blog, Twitter account, Instagram account, and other social media accounts set up allows you to generate leads 24/seven without having to do any extra work.
When people visit your website or blog, they should see that you’re an expert in the Herbalife business opportunity. It helps you attract quality leads who want to run a business like yours.
A blog not only gives you the professional presence needed, but it will become a traffic and lead generator that operates on 24/7 autopilot for you.
You’ll use search engine optimization (SEO) methods to get people interested in health, weight loss, and nutrition to find you.
By writing tips about how to lose weight or improve health, people who visit your blog will become the best possible leads you can ever find for your Herbalife products and the business opportunity.
Most Network Marketing Companies Teach Silly Marketing Tips
One of the most important things you can do when working toward a successful business is avoiding the silly things Herbalife may tell you to do.
Yes, you should do some things like contact friends and family members if it makes sense.
Or, wear the Herbalife button as I discussed above to get a fast start on your Herbalife rep journey.
However, you’ll become more successful than the average person in Herbalife if you get busy building a blog.
It allows you to create your own marketing system where your social media profiles point back to your website.
The website attracts best-fit leads who convert into direct sales for your MLM company sales.
You’ll have far more prospects this way.
It allows you to talk to people about Herbalife in a way that leads to success.
Think about it: If you write blog posts that teach people skincare, health, or weight loss tips, you’ll talk to people already interested in what you offer.
That’s far better than talking to friends and family who care less about Herbalife as a company or the training you’re passing on to them…or even think it’s a pyramid.
Success in network marketing and Herbalife comes from implementing everything you’ll learn today inside this post, and in this additional training I have for you.

Finally, have fun and enjoy your journey!
Why do most people struggle to sell Herbalife?
While everyone wants to make money, not everyone will succeed when they talk to people about Herbalife.
The main reason for this is that they’re trying to sell the opportunity or products without first creating a relationship with their prospects.
Building relationships takes time and effort. While I can teach you how to automate prospecting, you must remain willing to talk to people as humans.
Educate them about Herbalife nutrition or weight loss first. Get them excited about the products.
Build your basic skills in sales as you go about selling Herbalife. You’ll build a successful business and avoid the struggle if you don’t do what most Herbalife distributors do: try to shortcut their way to success by rushing the sale.
What makes people buy Herbalife products?
There are a few factors that typically influence someone’s decision to buy Herbalife products. They may:
- Be looking for a way to lose weight or improve their health.
- Have been referred by a friend or family member.
- Have seen someone in person selling the products and decided to try them.
- Watched an Herbalife distributor on social media show amazing results, create curiosity, and bring them in as a prospect.
- Be struggling financially and see the opportunity as a way to make more money.
What makes people join my Herbalife team?
The main reason people join your Herbalife team is that you’ve built trust.
You do this by sharing information about the products and the business opportunity in a helpful, educational way that doesn’t come off as an advertisement or sales pitch.
Instead of convincing someone, you provide them with information that allows them to make an informed decision for themselves.
When people feel like they can trust you, they’re more likely to join your team and become a distributor. Take time to build relationships with your prospects and customers.
What should I do if someone says no to my Herbalife offer?
Don’t be discouraged if someone says no to your Herbalife offer.
There are a few things you can do to increase your chances of making a sale, such as:
- Providing more information about the products and opportunity
- Building trust with your prospect
- Using social media to share your success stories
- Generating quality leads first
- Educating your leads about how to lose weight or start a business
Remember, not everyone is interested in becoming a distributor or buying Herbalife products. Get better at online marketing, use scripts to help you talk to people, and increase your closing skills
How do I attract customers to Herbalife?
There are many strategies you can use to attract customers to sell Herbalife.
First, market the products by sharing information about them on social media. Don’t use product pics. Instead, focus on the topics (skincare, lose weight, Herbalife nutrition, etc).
Second, share success stories from other distributors already making money.
Third, hold informational meetings or webinars about the products and your business opportunity so people can learn more.
Fourth, create an online funnel system that allows you to follow up with leads interested in the products or the opportunity.
How can I promote my Herbalife business?
You can promote your Herbalife business by using a variety of marketing strategies.
- Market the products by sharing honest information on social media.
- Use your LinkedIn profile to establish yourself as a professional in the industry.
- You can also reach new contacts by posting information on other social media profiles, such as Facebook, Twitter, or Pinterest.
- Make sure your blog posts are high quality so they get shared by others.
- Offer value via your Internet marketing efforts so people feel attracted to talk with you.
What do you get when you become a Herbalife distributor?
When you become a Herbalife distributor, several perks come along with the business opportunity.
You get to sell products designed to help people get healthy by providing sustainable nutrition.
The business opportunity makes it possible for people to sell Herbalife and become financially independent.
You get discounts on personal purchases each month.
You’ll have the opportunity to meet other like-minded individuals interested in the same thing you are: improving health and wellness and earning more money.
The key to talking to people about Herbalife is to keep your mind focused on how to provide value to them first.
If you talk blatantly about Herbalife too soon, you’ll never achieve success with the business.
Your days will become filled with good luck if talk about exactly what all people want to know: How to solve their problems.
Your prospects don’t care about you or Herbalife until after they know you can give them a great idea or two first about what you do in Herbalife, which is help people:
- Improve their health
- Learn a good idea about nutrition
- Lose more weight
- Make more income
