What a month October was. In spite of the horrific weather problems that plagued so much of our country, Nature’s Sunshine brought a beautiful ray of sunshine to all of us during the week of October 16-20. We hope all of you took advantage of the product discounts and shipping special promotions. Never before have we had both of these promotions occur at the same time. What a great surprise and treat and awesome way to let people know that, in spite of the Oracle problems, NSP has our back! Thank you Nature’s Sunshine!
Nature’s Sunshine takes action for members in non-compliance with NSP policies
As we have been told by Lynn Ohman, Director of Distributor Education and Compliance, NSP has developed a tracking system where they can determine members who are purchasing and selling products over internet sites like Amazon and EBay. It has happened, and NSP showed no favoritism to rank. In September, a Divisional Manager was terminated by NSP for failing to follow policy on selling products over the internet.
Promotional Changes May Become a Necessity
NSP is considering changes in its popular promotions of “Buy 4 get 1 free”, “Buy 9 get 3 free”, etc.
It may become necessary to cap the quantities of these promotions each account can purchase. NSP has increased sales audits by randomly looking at managers accounts. Red flags go up when they see a manager who purchases huge quantities of these promo specials, and they then appear on Amazon/EBay, and not necessarily under their account. It’s sad that honest members and managers may need to be constrained in quantity purchases of these promo items, but an honest manager would not be purchasing 300-400 special promo products at one time. We will keep you informed on any updates or changes related to this issue.
Computer System Status = Much Improved and Improving
Hold times for Customer Service and Leadership Support are almost back to the pre-live Oracle status, with exceptions during peak end of month calls. Promo’s still cause some slowness. The website speed is showing steady improvements but there is still work to do to bring it up to peak performance. Michel Banon, CIO (Chief Information Officer) has improved resolutions process dramatically.
