Note to Supplement Reps
I wanted to write down a few notes aimed at helping supplement reps. I hope they are helpful.

The Big Mistake

The biggest mistakes I see company reps making is not interacting with the community in an organic manner. Posting a log on a forum without social interaction is pretty much a waste of time. Simply stated, when people post in your log and you don't respond, or if you never post in the logs of others, your log will pretty much get ignored.

My advice is simple...interact. A few posts a day go a long way. Start a topical thread once a week. If something is on your mind, toss it out there for discussion. Easy.

The Facebook Only Approach

I see companies running great info, etc., on Facebook but then not posting it on forums. If you have a sub-forum here (or anywhere), use it! If you are offering deals, let the masses know.

The Anabolic Addiction Example

AA was a small supplement company, but they did everything right. They had reps who mingled, ran a lot of logs, and as a result it was hard to miss them.

I have AA t-shirts and supps at home.

The MAB Rule

This community supports companies who support us. We will provide a banner and sub-forum to any company that wants to be a part of this community.

We also have a Facebook page with 15,000 fans. If you have a deal, let me know. Post it here and I can pimp it on Facebook.

Though not a rep, I do like seeing the reps more involved than just commenting on threads related to their product.

Being a rep for a while now this is gospel. Reps should be active and help not just push a product.
