5 Easy Ways to Spread the SPARK (& Why You Should)


Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Thursday, January 17, 2013



We hope that all of you are off to a great start toward reaching your goals this January! Hopefully SparkPeople's trackers, resources, community features and coaching tools have helped you make some progress during these first few weeks of 2013.

As you know, SparkPeople is a FREE website because our mission is to SPARK millions of PEOPLE to reach their goals. We try to keep our costs as low as possible so that we can remain a free service for you and everyone else. We don't spend much on marketing to recruit new members. Instead, most people learn about or join our site because members like you tell them about it! (And we thank you for that!) That's why we ask for your support in "Spreading the Spark" to others. It's a great way to help others improve their lives and it helps keep SparkPeople free so we can help even more people.

January is the time when many people are making health-related goals, so it's also the best time to tell people you know about SparkPeople.

If you have a few minutes to spare in the next few days, here are some very easy ways that you can help Spread the Spark to others.

1. Share the SparkPeople Badge on Facebook, Pinterest and/or Twitter. Just click the link above to easily tell your social media friends that you're reaching your goals with SparkPeople!

2. Follow SparkPeople on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and/or Tumblr. Every time you interact with us (like, reply, comment, retweet or repin something we post) is another chance your friends will find out about SparkPeople!

3. Earn 10 SparkPoints for each friend you refer to join SparkPeople. Visit our Tell A Friend page to get a custom URL you can share with anyone. If they join the site from your URL, you get 10 SparkPoints per person!

4. Buy our new DVD at Target. The newly released 'Total Body Sculpting with Coach Nicole' is our highest-rated DVD to date: Nothing but 5 stars on amazon, plus endorsements from top fitness magazines calling it "one of the year's best." We are so excited that Target chose to stock our DVD on their shelves from among hundreds of available DVDs this year! This lets all kinds of new people discover SparkPeople by discovering it at Target! But they'll only keep it in the stores if it sells well, so if you're thinking about buying it, don't hesitate to run to your nearest Target store to purchase it. (Look for it in the sporting goods section, not with the movies.) As a bonus, you'll get 250 SparkPoints for your purchase—but only when you get it at a Target store.

5. Just tell someone! Simply tell someone—anyone—about your goals this year and how you're using SparkPeople to reach them. Call a friend. Send an email. Tell your co-worker. Just spread the word. When you tell people about your goals and how you're doing, research shows that you're more likely to reach them. And when you have people join you, your odds of success are even greater. To make it easy, we have email templates, printable flyers and even printable "business" cards that you can share! Find 'em right here.

Please consider doing what you can to help Spread the Spark today. The more people we can reach, the healthier we can make this world.

Here's to a healthy 2013 for all! SparkCheers!

    I shared the Sparkpeople website with the people on my Biggest Loser weight loss team at work. I had six of them join Sparkpeople. So it is helping some of my co-workers with their weight loss journey to keep track of them food intake and excerise. I love it when I can spread the Spark!

    Do you have to have a 'mobil' device in order to work?? Do you mean
cell phone with a certain capacity. I just have a simple Consumer Cellular that is just a phone. Don't even text with it.
Just wondering.

  Without this awesome tracker and great reports that accurately tell you what you are not taking in etc.... I would be lost. I enjoy loggin into SP not just because of the points but because SP has helped me keep track of what I do and how I do. The reports allow me to see progress and my faults which I can change and modify. This helps me do my best and overcome my fears. Thank you so much for SP.

  My doctor asked me how I lost my weight and we then had a 10 minute discussion about Sparkpeople. She said she usually refers people to Weight Watchers but now since I highly recommend Sparkpeople she will also tell them about it. She wrote down the site as she was unaware of this great place.

  I have recommended the site to quite a few people, but only my own older children have signed up, and neither of them uses the site. Oh well, I tried. Don't do social media types of things, sorry.

    I do try to spread the spark but only one person have joined. the problem is largely due to the fact that most people in Nigeria here do not have 24hr access to the internet . . . So I think they do find it difficult to track their fitness and nutrition,which is the secret to weight loss on SP.

    I tell everyone about SP. I have lost 121 pounds and when asked How did you lose the weight I say with SP. So far only one person I know of joined. Some say they don't have the time. Their loss.
