Probiotics are now being recommended by doctors more and more due to increase in digestive health issues, especially in women.  There are more cases of IBS and other gut-related health concerns today then ever before. One of the main reasons for this increase is the diet we are eating. Overall, we get less of the good bacteria that we need to fight off sickness and sustain optimum health. So now we need to supplement our diet with good bacteria.

Microbiome Plus has developed a product that helps with several areas in human health, the main ones being digestive, immune and cholesterol. Their probiotic was proven in a study to lower bad cholesterol by 11.64 percent*. This probiotic also helps with mood and weight loss, as do all effective probiotics. This is because weight-loss research suggests that healthy microflora in the gut can speed up metabolism and for mood, the probiotics help you absorb the nutrients you need to increase energy. With more energy and a healthier stomach, naturally you are going to feel better.

Microbiome Plus GI comes with a prebiotic as well. The prebiotic acts as a fertilizer for probiotics. In fact, many people take the prebiotic on its own to promote the growth of any natural probiotics they have in their system. This combination of probiotic and prebiotic are very effective in improving your digestive health, including battling bad bacteria that can cause gas, constipation, bloating and other issues.  Many people wait until they have IBS or other more serious problems before taking probiotics, but this is not the best choice. It is obviously important to maintain your health today for a better tomorrow.

If you are feeling fatigued, probiotics are most likely your answer. Of course, eating properly and exercise should always be number one, but this allergy safe and gluten-free supplement is the next best thing. Microbiome Plus probiotics were developed by doctors and clinically tested, so you know you are getting the good stuff.

If you or anyone you know may be interested in trying Microbiome Plus probiotics, here is a coupon code for 30 percent off the 1 and 2 month supplies.

Coupon Code: 30offmom

Contest: As well they have a giveaway you can enter for free. The winner gets $250 in health prizes, including a 3 month supply of probiotics, $100 towards a gym membership and a $50 Amazon Gift Card!

When starting a business every customer is a first-time customer. Before you can attract returning customers, you must establish a base of the first-timers. What are some strategies that will help you accomplish this?

1. Attractive web design is a crucial factor. When visitors are on your site, it needs to be visually appealing, easy to navigate and up-to-date. There should not be expired or non-working links and how to order should be easy and straightforward.

2. When you are just starting out, testimonials can be hard to come by but they are necessary. Personal follow up to your first customers soliciting feedback can be a great start. Putting testimonials on your site and social media pages can be a great way to encourage those who may be on the fence about placing an order. This can underscore the importance of quality customer service as well. Ensure that all of your customers have a good experience and would be willing to give you that positive testimonial.

3. Coupons can be a great way to build your network as well. A discount on their first order and/or in exchange for signing up for a mailing list can help extend your reach right away. CheekyTummy is an online store selling beautiful and functional accessories for mommies and babies. They offer things such as diaper bags, breastfeeding covers and bibs. They strategically attract new customers by offering 10 percent of each customer’s first order.

4. Also, be sure not to neglect social media marketing. It can be overwhelming and difficult to get a grasp on, but it is important to have a social media presence. It can hurt you not to have a Facebook page for your business. It’s a great way to get those awesome product photos viewed more, it’s a great way to expand your network, and it’s a great way to promote sales and specials.

What are some other ways that you’ve attracted first-time customers?

What Makes ComfyEarrings so Comfortable?

ComfyEarrings are unlike any earrings you’ve seen before! They are uniquely created to sit comfortably in your ear without stabbing your neck or squishing your earlobes.

You see traditional earrings have a few problems:

  1. They have a back that slides on the post. Often, this makes the earring too tight, which squishes your earlobe causing soreness and irritation.
  2. They also have a post that sticks out the back and pokes you in the neck when you lay down or talk on the phone.

ComfyEarrings solve these problems!

They bring relief to your ears and neck by using a flat back attached to the earring posts.

This flat back eliminates the pressure on your ears and, because it covers the back of the post, it protects your neck from painful pokes when you talk on the phone or sleep.

100% Comfy or Your Money-Back Guarantee

They personally test and approve every style of ComfyEarrings before they appear on this site. (In fact, co-owners, Nick and Christina Gillick, each wear ComfyEarrings 24/7/365. Christina wears two pair.)

They check for comfort, quality, and style. If a style of ComfyEarrings doesn’t pass, it doesn’t make it into our product line.

Because of the testing process — and the comfort of the earrings – they can confidently offer a 100% Money-Back Guarantee — also known as the “100% Happiness Guarantee.”
