The essential oil industry has made leaps and bounds over the last decade and with that growth came a lot of growing pains. Some pains so difficult to live with that some folks began amputating anyone who took sides in the war. Well, the companies ceased fire and asked their reps to do the same. Sadly, some people didn’t get the memo. On the other hand, some idiots did get the memo, but love war so much they refuse to put down the torches and pitchforks. The good thing is there are essential oil enthusiasts who are working on an essential oil collaborative and if you want the essential oil industry to grow and see people pursue and achieve wellness then you better get involved.
Our group is unique and rare. Not many people are strong enough or mature enough to rise above the chaos and put forth the effort to transform an entire industry. It takes hard work and lets be honest, some people are just too lazy to fight the good fight and instead wallow in the mire with the critics. Misery loves company.
The Internet is the single most effective way to increase the information flow in our modern world. With the perfect combination of hard work, clever writing, and dedicated team work, we have created a collaborative that is going to take this world by storm. If you’re smart, you’ll get involved now and show the world, your readers, and consumers that you’re a key player in paving the way for higher quality of essential oils, better education, and a solid industry standard.
Here’s why this is going to take your maturity and self control; it doesn’t matter which company you rep with or which organization you buy from. This means people who come from the competitors are putting down the rifles and extending a hand of friendship and professionalism that even the White House can’t seem to establish.
I could continue to tell you how enormous and influential this collaborative is, but you’ll get what you put into it.
What I really want to drive home is how INSANE it is that so many consumers, reps, and hecklers are still battling over gossip and unsubstantiated rumors that even the court of law and concerned parties have DROPPED! If (and they are) corporate leaders are mature enough to cease fire then why the hell are people still going for the jugular?
I believe so strongly in the power of essential oils that I’m absolutely BAFFLED by the asinine tactics other essential oil consumers are resorting to. DO YOU NOT USE ESSENTIAL OILS AT ALL?!? Maybe you should diffuse some lavender, better yet take a dunk in an entire VAT of it. Ok, so that wouldn’t be wise because essential oil is pretty damned concentrated, but I think you get my drift.
To those of you who get what I’m saying and quite possibly feel the same way; we need to stand together and show those infants how to rise above it. We aren’t doing a very good job by just being silent and staying on our own sides of the field. They need to see us ride to the center on our white steeds and shake hands!
We’ve had it with the essential oil community behaving like the Hatfields and McCoys! Grow the hell up.
People are sick and dying because of Big Pharma’s incessant push to get our fellow humans addicted to medications! Thousands of people DIE every year because of unnecessary surgeries. Tens of thousands of people are entering DRUG REHABS because of PRESCRIPTION drug addiction! And get this, most insurance companies REFUSE to cover that expense. People are in pain. People join hand in hand to PRAY for ill loved ones and the Power from Above is pointing out that everything we need to be healthy was CREATED in a perfect freaking garden! This planet is one huge garden with plant life that grows in every corner of the globe! Why oh why are we resorting to synthetic chemicals to heal an ORGANIC body?
But when people type in the search bar “can essential oils help me get better?” the results are immature and hostile blog posts that condemn essential oil companies. What a waste of cyberspace.
So here’s a short order of what’s going on in this collaborative.
We recognize that our fans, followers, and readers are the BEST advertising we can get. Not just us, but the entire industry as a whole. Marketing statistics show that word of mouth advertising is still king. But if we’re too busy fighting what do these readers have to share with their contacts? Did you know that in 2013 they counted 3.6 BILLION email accounts? Can you even visualize how many contacts could be yours?
Articles that go viral are often the negative ones. Which means if we’re going to see a STRONG push of essential oil purchases and use (for improving wellness) then we had better get our asses in gear and start working hard. We must rise above the worthless chatter of idle gossip. Our unique team knows how to knock those hen pecking critics to the back of the Google bus.
Improving the essential oil market requires POSITIVE partnerships so we can effectively raise the Google ranks ABOVE that of the critics. Our collaborative works together to create effective articles that educate, inspire, and equip people with accurate information to improve their wellness.
Organic growth seems small at first, but in the long run it’s the kind of expansion that has the FIRMEST foundation. It’s amazing how much easier it is to make the sale without sounding like a gimmicky used car salesman. We offer tips on how to grow your influence organically.
We don’t drink the Kool-Aid. Seriously, who the hell wants an essential oil business that is accused of being a cult? We are willing to reach across the table and have relationships with bloggers who work for a different company. But only mature essential oil enthusiasts should apply for group membership.
We each retain our authenticity and continue to grow teams under our own businesses, because we recognize that consumers have the right and the freedom to team up with people they get along with and feel aligned to by personality and philosophy. Besides, you wouldn’t want someone on your team that you have a personality conflict with, right?
We network together in productive ways that promote the essential oil industry without crossing the line of competition. But aside from that, read why HEALTHY competition is good for all of us, including the industry as a whole.
Our bedrock goals are to see people improve their wellness with essential oils. When we make PEOPLE are priority, the financial success comes as a natural manifestation of your kindness and compassion.
This is precisely why smart entrepreneurs are joining the Essential Oil Collaborative (on Facebook) and the idiots just heckle.
