Family.my to Launch Health Portal With Golf Tournament Trip to Langkawi and Port Dickson


Langkawi, Port Dickson (PRWEB) September 30, 2013

By placing a strong emphasis on the importance of health and general well-being, Family.my aims to establish a strong community of Malaysian families who share information with each other while contributing current issues and resources to everyone in the community.

Throughout the years, Family.my has been launching and carrying out numerous campaigns and activities to further enhance its position as the preferred online resource for families in Malaysia. This is on top of the comprehensive guide on everything about health which are often read about and referenced among its members.

As part of this on-going effort to play an important role in the Malaysian society, Family.my will be launching a new health portal that will further enhance its reputation as the top portal for health information among families. Through this, Family.my can continue supplying health information that are relevant and helpful in a more convenient and easily accessed manner.

In conjunction with the launch of the new health portal (Health.Family.My), all the staff members of the company will be enjoying a trip away to 2 of the top tourist destinations in Malaysia. Apart from that, they will be staying at the most luxurious hotels there which are The Andaman and the Thistle Port Dickson Resort in Langkawi and Port Dickson respectively. This trip is an incentive trip for the staff, associates and their family members which is intended for them to learn more about the top travel destinations while enjoying a holiday away from their working environments through a sponsored one-night stay at the top Langkawi hotel.

It has been found that such trips are useful to rejuvenate and refresh the mind among the employees while they are able to learn more about travel and tourism which are prominent segments in Family.my as well. Through this experience, they will be able to learn more about what the community is looking for when someone visits Langkawi and Port Dickson which will then drive them better into providing the services that are needed and related to the visitors experience.

During the trip, there is a 1-day Golf tournament which will be held at Gunung Raya Golf Resort in Langkawi. Gunung Raya Golf Resort is one of the best places to play golf in Malaysia. Members of the company are encouraged to compete against each other to try and win the attractive prizes. These prizes are sponsored by the distributors of Usana Health Sciences, one of leading health supplement companies in Malaysia and globally. Usana products are constantly discussed and recommended through Family.my as one of the best preventive methods against known health diseases.

The new health portal will be offering a dedicated segment that will list all the top diseases in Malaysia. This is an important section of Family.my and one which is among the most read sections because it is informative and helpful. By listing all the top health diseases in Malaysia, members of the community will be made aware of what to expect and how to overcome them.

Whether it is stroke, heart attack, diabetes or cancer, there is a comprehensive coverage of how to identify the diseases and more importantly, their remedies. This segment includes ways to overcome these diseases as well as any other related information which would be of help to the member.

The new campaign will cover a half-day workshop for women who are interested in exploring a new and more effective way of facial and skin care. This event will be run by an expert from Usana Malaysia who will guide the female member on using Usana Sense facial therapy and how it can help in reducing the aging effects and in keeping the skin healthy, radiant and shining at all times.

There will be health talks being organized to create more awareness on the importance of good health and the significance of supplements in achieving that. These talks will be carried out by renowned and qualified nutritionists who are from some of the leading MLM (Mutli-Level Marketing) supplement companies. The nutritionists are selected because of their experience in the health supplements industry as well as their known expertise in the subject areas.

The iPersonalyze Network enables marketers to have an integrated network of personalization tools for their online businesses. Customers can select unique customizable products that can be personalized, branded and delivered rapidly anywhere in the world. Actual same day production and delivery in the company’s home town of Southlake Texas will be a reality in 2015.

The November 1 launch of the network coincides with the release of Version 5.0 of the iPersonalyze’s highly regarded eCommerce Manager now powered by the Gateway CPP technology. The UK-based Gateway CPP is widely regarded by industry insiders as the global leader of 2D and 3D virtual sampling software and mass customization production technologies.

The acceptance and accolades we received from retailers, decorators and manufacturing organizations from Europe, Asia, Africa, South America, Taiwan….everywhere actually… at the SGIA Expo last week far exceeded our wildest dreams,” said Vic Awtry, Founder of iPersonalyze. “The integration of the Gateway3D custom product platform into the iPersonalyze eCommerce Manager positions us to ramp multiple sales channels and add more international production partners to our network. Major brands understand well the power of one-to-one marketing and commercial added value of personalizing products for consumers.” The company hopes its platform will bridge the gap between 20th century analog production and 21st century digital, social, mobile and global marketing trends. “Andrew Talbot, Found of GatewayCPP, is a genius in my opinion and I am looking forward to the complete integration of our systems,” said Awtry.
