In the world of essential oils, it can be even more overwhelming for an essential oil entrepreneur than a general essential oil user. There is so much information to learn and so many different resources to tap into to help you grow your business.
As an essential oil entrepreneur myself, my goal is to create a one-stop resource for my team members. There are so many resources out there to consider and one can certainly find themselves spinning with a ton of information not knowing where to start.
Below you will find a comprehensive list of different resources including supplies, reference materials, programs, and website resources to help you grow your business and create your own content.
Full disclosure, while I recommend programs and sites that I use on a regular basis, I am an affiliate for PicMonkey, CinchShare, and the Sassy Suite. Whats does that mean? It means that if you click on the link and decide to join I will receive a percentage if you choose to sign up for a paid service. However, the products and services listed below I am recommending based on my personal use and experiences. I would never recommend a product a program or site I do not personally use myself.
I will continue to update this list on an on-going basis as I find more resources I feel that will help benefit anyone looking to build a business.
Essential Oil User Resource List– A listing of essential oil resources for supplies, tools and reference materials.
PicMonkey– A free online all-in-one editor for photos, designs and collages. I use PicMonkey for a majority of the photos you see on this website and my other social media channels. You can also upgrade to the Royale version for additional editing features.
Canva– A website where you can create designs with the web or for print. Canva is a free resource, but you can also choose to use some of their designs or backgrounds for a small fee. I use Canva for many of my graphics. My rollerball and diffuser recipe freebie was created using Canva.
CinchShare– CinchShare is an amazing social media marketing too. It allows you to schedule and manage Facebook posts for both groups and events. This tool will help you to manage busy online classes you hold on Facebook—allowing you to engage with your attendees in a stress free environment.
MailChimp– If you are looking to create your own monthly newsletter and e-mail list this is a great resource to start with! MailChimp is free up to 2000 subscribers, and 1200 emails per month. If you are just now starting out in your business, MailChimp is a great free resource. Not on my list yet? Subscribe today and check out my beautiful newsletter I created all on my own.
VistaPrint– I order a lot of my printed items here. I have ordered business cards, thank you cards, magnets, business banners and personalized stationery. Create an account with VistaPrint and watch for different promotions and coupon codes to save money. I generally will never order anything at full price.
PayPal– This is a great option to have for both your customers and yourself. PayPal is a great alternative for my customers ordering directly from me versus my replicated website. Additionally, PayPal has some great invoicing and shipping features.
Periscope– Livestreaming today is a fast and growing trend. Periscope allows me to connect with my followers when I want to share essential oil tips, DIY recipes or just say hello from time to time. Are you following me yet? Download Periscope today, find me (@empowernatural), and check out one of my livestreams.
Pixabay– This is a great online resource for free stock photos. I use Pixabay for a lot of my graphics on my social media channels.
Sassy Suite– Looking for some amazing social media training? Check out the Sassy Suite for training courses that include: Social Startup, Epic Facebook Live Parties, Original Graphics Bootcamp, Instagram Bootcamp, Pinterest Bootcamp and Blogging Bootcamp. Blogging Bootcamp is where I learned to set-up and create Empower Natural. Trust me, you will not be disappointed in the Sassy Suite courses. They are set-up so that you can go at your own pace and you will always have access to your course materials (workbooks, videos, etc.).
SassySuite Web Services– I use Sassy Suite web Services for all of my web services. I purchased my domain, hosting and managed WordPress through Sassy Suite. Sassy Suite helped me with setup, design, content strategy and promotional strategy. I highly recommend Sassy Suite if you are looking for a one-stop shop for your blogging site needs.
