Shipping Charges Incentives – 2014

Wednesday, January 1st, 2014


For quite some time we have been pleased to offer our personal organization some discounts and incentives for placing Member Direct Orders with Shaklee. We do this by sharing these costs with you, and hope that this will not only help lower your costs, but also reward you for being a loyal customer.

We have recently reviewed this program in light of changes with Shaklee’s shipping fees, and as a result are updating our shipping charges policy, effective January 1, 2014. Please note the following:

20% Discount on all Shipping Charges!
We have arranged for every U.S. and Canadian downline member in our personal group to receive an automatic 20% reduction in the shipping charges applied by Shaklee. This applies to all orders, regardless of size, except for one’s initial order at the time of registering as a new Member or Distributor.

33% Discount on Shipping Charges for all Members and Distributors who have accumulated at least 100 Personal Volume in a 12 month period*

Additional Incentives for Canadians
Due to the unique Order Charge formula in Canada we are able to offer Canadians the following additional benefits:

  • 50% Discount on Shipping Charges for all GOLD Ambassadors who have accumulated at least 500 Personal Volume in a 12 month period*
  • FREE Shipping to all Members and Distributors who have accumulated at least 1000 Personal Volume in a 12 month period*


We trust that these incentives and discounts remain helpful for you. Please notify your own downline Members of these changes, and contact us if you have any questions.


*12 month Personal Volume calculations will take place every January 1st and July 1st.

Get ready for Cinch in January!

Saturday, December 17th, 2011

This is a busy time of year as you plan for times with family and friends. But, it’s also a good time to prepare for opportunities in the New Year!

It’s no secret that in January many people will return their focus to getting back in shape, including losing weight. To address this Shaklee will be launching one of its most comprehensive product promotion campaigns ever, centered around Cinch, our highly effective, scientifically-designed Inch Loss Plan.

If you are ready to lose some extra weight, this would be a great time to make the commitment. And, this could also be a perfect occasion for you to build a Shaklee business by sharing Cinch with others.

Here are some specific actions for you as we head into January:

  1. Watch for more information in the next couple of weeks detailing a wide
    range of promotions, incentives and tools to make sharing Cinch easier
    than ever
  2. Plan to attend a January kick-off meeting near you on January 7th to learn more about everything new in Shaklee. Find a location at this LINK.
  3. Join our TeamUp group for the next quarter, beginning in January. Our weekly, Monday evening conference calls will feature important weight loss information segments with Dr. Jamie McManus.

2012 could be a tremendous new start for you health, and for those you know!

Shaklee and social media

Thursday, July 28th, 2011

Over the past few years one of the hottest trends in our society has been the pervasive growth of online social networking through such tools as Facebook, Twitter, and blogging. Shaklee has been long involved with social media and has encouraged business builders to take advantage of this opportunity. As powerful as these tools are, they are no replacement for more basic business practices, but they certainly can aid and enhance your efforts.

One of the great challenges in all of this is the fact that social networking is evolving quickly. What seemed to make sense a couple of years ago no longer applies, and even within the past six months there have been industry innovations and shake-ups that are changing the social media landscape. This can be daunting for those who are not technically savvy or keeping up-to-date with the changes.

To help us navigate these tricky waters, Shaklee has launched a number of initiatives to assist business builders:

1. Shaklee has put in a place a Social Media Manager whose job is specifically to leverage this technology and to help us use it more effectively.

2. At the upcoming Global Conference in Washington, DC Shaklee will be offering several involved training sessions on how to take advantage of social media. For those of you unable to attend, we will pass along some of the information we learn, and there should be resources available to the larger field.

3. Shaklee has published some new Social Web Guidelines to help us understand how to utilize social media appropriately and within Shaklee policies. These are important changes that reflect the current status of the technology and the various services offered. You can read these guidelines at this LINK.

If you are not already actively utilizing social media in your business we encourage you to learn more about how this can benefit you.

  • Shaklee is ramping up its communication and training efforts, working through the new Member Center, and with new web and conference calls for both product and opportunitiy training.

Our intent is not to duplicate Shaklee’s premiere offerings, but to complement them. In response to their new initiatives we are making the following changes:

  • We will be focusing our business development efforts on Team Up and the Dream Plan conference calls that Shaklee now offers Monday evenings.
  • We will no longer conduct weekly conference calls on Saturday morning, although we may occasionally hold one on a special topic, etc.
  • We will work harder at disseminating information and support opportunities through our electronic channels: email, blog/RSS feed, Twitter feed and Facebook group.

At all times we want to be responsive to what is going to serve you best. Please let us know what is working for you and suggestions you may have as to how we can better assist you to get the most out of Shaklee.

These are exciting times in Shaklee, and we look forward to the journey with you in the coming months and years!
