XanGo Lays Off 50 Employees

Written by Tom Cellie

XanGo ProductsIs it a sign of the times? XanGo has laid off about 50 employees, a little less than 10 percent of its work force. The Lehi, Utah-based, company said on March 13 that global economic conditions led it to re-evaluate its operations.

“We are reallocating resources to position ourselves for the future, recognizing the reality of the economy,” said Bob Freeze, vice president of public relations. Freeze said the company turned a profit in 2008 even though economic conditions deteriorated in the fourth quarter.

The XanGo layoffs are signs of stress in the multi-level marketing industry that generally touts itself as resistant to recessions because people who lost their jobs or who are looking for more income sign up as distributors, stated the news story that appeared in The Salt Lake Tribune.

Written by Tom Cellie

Vodafone & TwitterExtending the power of the real-time network globally through the simple technology of SMS is a driving goal for Twitter. Anyone in the world can update Twitter via SMS but receiving tweets on your mobile has been restricted to North America. Today, we're happy to announce an agreement between Vodafone UK and Twitter. The shortcode for UK Vodafone customers is 86444 and you can activate your mobile in your Twitter settings.

What's The Deal?

Vodafone UK has signed an agreement with Twitter allowing customers to send and receive SMS updates at no additional cost. Sending tweets from your mobile will be part of your normal text messaging bundle with Vodafone—there will be no extra fees. In fact, for the first few weeks, sending tweets won't even affect your bundle. Receiving tweets via SMS on your mobile is totally free. Vodafone loves Twitter!

Making Progress

In the United States, folks can send and receive tweets via SMS at no extra charge. In Canada, Bell Mobility customers can do the same. Now Vodafone customers in the UK can send and receive tweets. Twitter will continue to make arrangements with operators around the world so hopefully your country and your mobile provider will be next!

We Net ProfitsI am working with a company called We Net Profits.  They first hired me to create their compensation movie and NOW I have completed a capture page for them emulating the same colors and theme of their corporate site.  This is only for their pre-launch so it will only be utilized a few weeks.  I have it hosted on the WNP site as a mock for them to evaluate.  See it here Add a comment
