Let me start by sharing a little bit about my journey, and then I’ll answer all these questions plus some.
I love my career in the Army, but about 16 years into my career, I started to stress about what the future would hold. I knew I had to get out of the Army at some point, but I had no desire to start a new career, and I had no desire to work 80+ hours a week and miss even more time with my husband and family. Also, I’ve worked my butt off for years, and I’ve seen so many people who are less talented earn the same exact amount of money.
This realization came at the same time that I started to use essential oils to support healthy hormones, to clear up my skin and give me more energy. I loved them, but had never ever considering hopping into the business. That was, until the lady who introduced me to oils asked if I was interested in signing up some friends. I had zero idea what it entailed and I had zero idea how much the income potential was, but I figured I could make a few extra dollars for fun.
I showed my products to a few friends and signed them up right away. I just invited a few friends over, cracked open a bottle of wine and told them how I used each of my fave oils. My first check was $232, and I was blown away. I had no idea what I was doing, but I wanted to keep going.
Fast forward a few years, I’ve had the best possible time building my business. I personally love building my business on social media, although I certainly do talk to people in person about it as well. The great thing is, you can do it whatever way you want.
I am now at the point where I can leave my career when I want to, and I won’t have to worry about what to do for a living. I have met the best possible friends in this business, and I can’t say enough about it. If I can do it with no training and no audience, you can also.
But enough about me… let me answer some basic questions.
Frequently Asked Questions about How To Make Money Selling Essential Oils Online
I see all these people talking about essential oils online. What do oils actually do?
Essential oils have been used for thousands of years by all sorts of cultures for health and spirituality. The ancient Greeks, Romans, and Egyptians (among others) all used them, and so it’s no surprise that yes, they work. Not only do they make your house smell amazing, but you can use essential oils for things like non-toxic home cleaning, youthful skin, supporting healthy emotions, digestive health, spiritual grounding, healthy sleep and more.
Does it matter what company’s oils I use?
It does. I have tried oils from many different companies, and the one I love and partner with is the #1 essential oil company on the planet, and the only company that owns their own farms to ensure high-quality oils. And high-quality oils = results and impact. I could expand on a million reasons why I prefer the company I chose, but another reason is that they offer a whole line of essential oil-based products; non-toxic makeup, non-toxic home cleaning, pet care and more. So, if you really want to focus on a healthy makeup business, you can! If you want to use social media to share green living tips, you can. The versatility is amazing. The company is 25 years old this year and we have no signs of slowing down growth, so the company is here to stay!
Do people actually make money selling essential oils online?
Yep. I didn’t realize it, either, but making a good living is very possible. That said, unless you already have an audience, it takes work, time, and dedication. Anyone who promises you easy money is full of it. I prefer to work with go-getters who take massive action and are goal driven.
How exactly does it work?
There are many ways to use social media to help people with their lives. You can build a business from Facebook, Instagram, or any social media platform. You can use an existing audience that trusts you, or you can build one by creating videos and posts that teach and educate. Either way, the general concept is that you share about the benefit of the product and how you use it in your life, much like any fashion or food blogger would do. If you are already an influencer, then consider this an incredible opportunity for recurring affiliate income.
I have no clue what I’m doing in business or sales. How do you learn how to do it?
I do mentor everyone who enrolls with me on business and sales. However, all you need to know to get started is that selling is about sharing how products can improve people’s lives and give them a physical and emotional benefit. If you focus on that and aim to serve your audience, you can’t go wrong.
Do I have to be an expert on essential oils or health?
Nope. You don’t have to be. Anyone can learn to use oils and/or healthy products in just a few seconds. In fact, sometimes it is to your advantage to take people on the journey of you learning to use and love a new product.
Do I have to have a social media following?
No. You can start with zero social media following and grow one as you go. That said, if you do have a following that trusts your influence, then you’re definitely at an advantage
Do you work with other people as a team?
This business is all about cooperation, but ultimately you are responsible for growing your own team / making your own sales. We have an incredible team that prides ourselves on no drama, high achievers and lots of love. (Plus… how gorgeous are these babes?)
I already have a big following on Instagram / Facebook / YouTube / my Blog. Is this for me?
Absolutely. We find that influencers who start this business make strides very quickly. If you already have a following, I would be happy to offer suggestions about a proven launch strategy that works really well. But, if you already know how to introduce products and you’re ready to rock on, then I would just be here to support you if you need it!
How is this the same or different than affiliate income from Like To Know it, fashion links, paid sponsorship or brand deals?
This is similar in that you are serving your audience with something they need. It is very different in that unline buying a shirt or shoes through an affiliate link, many of your customers will place recurring orders and you will make recurring income from that. Additionally, as you enroll new essential oil team members, and THEY grow their own teams, you reap the benefit of that as well. Your impact is greater, and you are compensated more for that growing impact.
I see people being super spammy and annoying online with their products. I don’t want to do that AT ALL.
Well, then you are on the right path already! If you come from a place of service, you won’t ever be spammy. But, we have plenty of business training and mentorship so you can learn how to grow your business without pissing off all your friends.
How much does it cost to start?
You first need to purchase a Starter Kit, pictured below, which is $165 (half off the retail price and a freaking STEAL with 12 oils, a diffuser, non-toxic home cleaner and more). Once you sign up, you can immediately sign up any friends or followers, even if your kit hasn’t arrived yet! Oh by the way… you now have a business for $165. 🙂
How much does it cost to run once you’ve started?
To earn full commissions, you will need to place monthly product orders of 100 Point Value (PV), which is the equivalent of $100. So your monthly operating cost will be $100. People typically fall in love with the products, so placing a monthly order is a joy. Most people also find that they can purchase things they normally purchase at Target or Amazon on their monthly order (like toothpaste, laundry soap, makeup, etc.) so it’s not an “extra” expense. That is an incredibly low monthly way to run a business! Then, sharing on Instagram or Facebook is free!
Does it matter who you sign up with?
It does. While your mom or best friend might be into oils, they don’t always have the business training and leadership experience to give you the support you might need (I’m not trying to talk you out of enrolling with them, I’m just stating what I’ve experienced). Anyone who enrolls with me gets access to my business mentorship and social media courses for no additional charge. Plus, we have regular business training for the entire group, as well as free flat lay stock and product photos.
How much income can you make?
This is our income disclosure. It’s pretty wild, and it’s very real. But keep in mind this takes hard work and isn’t for everyone. If you are a go-getter, have drive and consistency, then this is definitely for you! Wether you are looking to pay off your car early, pay for a babysitter once a month, or something more substantial (like creating a full time income), anything is possible with committment and consistency. (Read the full income disclosure here.)
I’d like to start. What is my first step?
If you’re already on board, you are motivated and don’t have any questions, then the first step is to purchase an essential oil Premium Starter Kit. I’ll get a notification that you purchased it, and then we can connect and get you plugged into our system.
If you have questions or would like to speak to me personally, then fill out the form HERE and I’ll be in touch.
I look forward to hearing from you!
