Need Content Help?

One way content writers provide content is via  Storify for their Blog’s.  I personally have not used Storify, but decided to provide information on this application because many have found it to be very useful.

On the other hand I have used Scoop.it and have found it to be very useful in finding additional content. Both are worth one taking the time to review them and seeing if they are a fit for you and your blog.

Check out the links for both content applications.

Social Marketing Brands and Risk

The question I must define as a Wellness Advocate is should I take the brand of essential oil via social media?  What happens if I do? Taking the essential oil company associated with in the essential industry, as a wellness advocate I first should determine it the company has certain policies in place.  Many major essential oil companies have developed policy’s & guidelines on traditional marketing and using social media, both compliance directives from the company. Many companies have established best practices that their wellness advocates must comply in their effort in developing a network.

Some of the specific guidelines determine the use of logo’s, company name, and images appropriate to use in their marking and social media promotional involvement.  The companies in the industry must include the appropriate language to use to guarantee that the company is following the FDA Standards.

Complying with the FDA directives is crucial to managing risk to the essential oil company.  The company can have products pulled off the market or the company closed if they are not compliant with the FDA Standards. Meeting these major directives, policies and guidelines from the essential oil companies can be a challenge and a significant risk to the individual Wellness Advocates.  Wellness Advocates are at risk losing bonus, commission, and complete removal from the company if there is non-compliance. It is imperative that an advocate is familiar with all policies, completely understanding the importance of ensuring their implementation during all marketing and social media activities.
