Spread the Spark in '08

Share the Health!

Happy New Year and Happy New YOU from SparkPeople! As you may already know, one of the reasons can offer so many features and tools for free is because our members do an amazing job helping us "Spread the Spark" to their family, friends, co-workers and even complete strangers!

There is no better time than the New Year to talk to your friends and loved ones about health, wellness, and fitness since they've got New Year’s resolutions on their minds. That’s why we’re asking you to help us kick off 2008 by Spreading the Spark!

We know it can be awkward to tell your friends and loved ones to join a "weight loss" program. But with the launch of SparkAmerica for 2008, now everyone can use SparkPeople to get healthier and reach their goals, even if they might not be interested in our other nutrition and fitness tools.

Here are a couple quick things you can do to get the word out so that your friends and family members will join you in their own journeys to health:

1. Email the People You Know and Care About
Craft and send an email yourself, or let us do the work for you! We've created some sample emails that you can copy & paste into your email program and send to anyone in your address book. Feel free to use these however you wish—send them as is, or read them for ideas on how to craft you own message. 2. Tell Your Friends, Family and Co-Workers about SparkPeople
Word of mouth is the primary way that people learn about SparkPeople, and it helps us keep our marketing costs low so we can focus on improving the site even more! So when people ask you about your secret to success, or what your goals are for 2008, be sure to mention that you use to reach your goals!

We thank you again for continuing to support SparkPeople, and wish you the best of luck with your goals in the New Year!
