  • How can I get a UsingEssentialOils.com email account?

    We do not offer Using Essential Oils email accounts.

  • How can I use my own logo on my website?

    The instant websites are designed to be ready to go instantly with the existing logo in place, but if you want your own logo to appear on the front page in place of the Using Essential Oils logo, we can replace that for you along with a background image or color choice that you provide. This customization option is included in the one time registration set up fee after January 17, 2017.

    If your website was registered prior to January 17, 2017 you can still customize your logo for a one time fee. To get started, just go to our Customization Shop.

  • What if I want to use a different website address?

    If you happen to have your own domain, we can map your domain to your yoursite.usingessentialoils.com.  This service is included in the one time set up fee for all websites after January 17, 2017. If your website was created prior to January 17, 2017 you can still purchase domain mapping from our Customization Shop

    Simply put, domain mapping just means pointing yoursite.com to your usingessentialoils.net/yoursite, so when your customers and friends visit yoursite.com they will see your Using Essential Oils website and yoursite.com will remain the visible address.

    It doesn't matter where you registered your domain, you can still map it to your UsingEssentialOils.com site.

    ExamplesHow to Set-Up

    Example #1 - Domain Mapping with Using Essential Oils logo and background

    Example #2 - Domain Mapping with custom logo and background

    After you have purchased the one-time setup fee in our customization shop, create a new support ticket with category "Domain Mapping" and include your domain name.  We will then begin the process and contact you with instructions for the next step.  The full process can take up to 48 hours.

     

     

  • How is my website updated?

    What about updates? 

    The website will get free instant updates in several ways. First, some of the content will get updated as new products, catalogs and quarterly magazines are available. If dōTERRA changes any of their informational pages or adds new products, we’ll automatically put them onto your website at no charge to you. We also automatically update your blog each week with dōTERRA blogs from the corporate website which you can share to your social sites like Facebook, or send out in your automated newsletters with our MailChimp integration. Important new research will be added to the blog pages when available and new articles and videos may be added if they meet the dōTERRA compliance regulations.

    Additionally, the software controlling the website as well as internet security software will also be updated as new versions are released, also at no charge to you.

    In other words - we handle the updates for you so you can focus on your business!

  • When sharing a post to Facebook, the wrong image is displaying on Facebook

    In regards to Facebook, the available images when sharing a post or page is all dependent on the Facebook servers and when they scrape images from websites.  It is an issue with Facebook that is a problem for many; see thread  examples.  Sometimes you will see all of the images available to choose from and other times only a couple are picked up and as you have found there are times that what you see is not what gets posted.  This can be very frustrating.

     In addition, Facebook displays a smaller image on shared posts compared to images uploaded on Facebook directly.  So although it is great to have the sharing links on your site for visitors, here is a tip for maximizing the image when YOU want to share a post or page

    1. Login to Facebook
    2. Start a new post but BEFORE you insert the URL link . . . (If you put the post URL first it will use the smaller image format)
    3. Upload your image (Now your image will display the full width of post at 470px)
    4. Now go back and add in the URL link of your blog post.

     

  • About Me Page Photo: I recently updated my About Me Page, and somehow the photo went from the left to the right; how can I move it back to the left?

    When you are editing, you can click on the image and you will see two boxes on the upper left corner; an X to delete and a pencil to edit.  When you click on the pencil an Image Details page loads where you can modify the display settings like alignment and size.  You can also make the image linkable by using the Link To option.  There are also some image editing tools available on the right side; just click on "Edit Original" which provides for cropping, scaling, flipping and rotating your image. If you need more help, use our Support Ticket system and we'll help you!

     

  • What do I need to do to get started?

    Your Instant Website is ready for visitors as soon as you register for your website, so there is nothing you have to do immediately, however, here are the steps you can take to give your site your own personality and messages. This should only take a few minutes.

    Profile Picture – Until you add your own picture, we have loaded the dōTERRA logo as a placeholder. To add your own picture: Go to Profile and upload the picture that you would like displayed on your homepage. Use a square image; the image will be resized to 126 px X 126 px.

    If you have a problem uploading your picture, send us your picture in an email and we will upload for you and have it displayed on your Homepage and your About page. If you would like a different picture to be used for your About page, just include it in the email too. Send to support@usingessentialoils.com

    We have also placed pre-loaded messages on your Welcome Message, About page, Join Our Team page, New To Essential Oils page and Blog page, so your site is ready to go immediately.

    (Note: You can edit some of these pages to personalize your website. Go to your Profile page from your dashboard to update your Welcome Message. Other pages may also be personalized but require a simple approval process so that they remain in compliance. Read more about that here.)

    Blogs – To remain in compliance with dōTERRA, the only blog posting allowed on the Using Essential Oils websites are dōTERRA blogs from their corporate site which are automatically posted to your website.

    Social Follow Buttons – This is an optional feature for those that participate in various social media sites. Go to Social Buttons Settings and simply enter the URL’s for any social media account that you participate with. For any social media URL that you enter, a button will automatically appear on the right side of your pages for visitors to “follow you”. This is not required.

    Your site is now uniquely yours with your personal messages and personality!

    A few more things to know:

    Contact Form – We have created 2 Contact Forms. One is linked to your "Contact" tab of your menu bar. The other is connected to your New To Essential Oils page. Your Contact Forms have been set up for you and will send you an email when anyone fills out the contact form. The email that it uses is the same one you used when you registered as shown on your profile page. In addition to receiving an email, messages are stored and you can access in Contact Form > Entries.

    Affiliate Link– As a thank-you for helping to promote Using Essential Oils Instant Websites to your dōTERRA colleagues and members of your downline, we are offering you referral commissions We pay you a $1/month referral fee for anyone who visits our site from your affiliate link and purchases a website package within 45 days.

  • Preferred Member Page - Can I delete this option on my website?

    There are mixed opinions from Wellness Advocates on this topic. Ultimately, we have felt that to automatically remove the Preferred Member option on all our subscribers sites could backfire when visitors are transferred to dōTERRA where the option is presented to them. However, we are here to provide a service that supports your business. 

    We also realize that one size doesn’t fit all so we have created an alternate page, that does not include the Preferred Member option at all on that page, that we make available in our “Customization Shop”.   These are available for a one-time nominal set up fee. Find more info here 

    We can also create a customized page for your specific look and message for this page. This option is also available at our "Customization Shop"  and is quoted on a case by case basis.

  • Can I customize the Contact forms on my website?

    Yes! There are actually 2 contact forms that have been automatically created for your website.

    1.  The general Contact form that is found on the navigation menu

    2.  The 2nd form is part of the “Are you new to essential oils?” page.  You can see this contact form when you click on the Are You New to Essential Oils banner on the home page and also on the side panel of your blog page.

    Both of these Contact forms are ready to go as they are, but they can be edited by you at our Customization Shop.

    Facebook share example 1  A dialog box from Facebook will pop-up for you to log-in.  After which, the post/page summary and title will appear with an image.  The first time Facebook connects to a post/page it gathers the image info – so it does not appear.  To force it to show, click “Cancel” and then click the Facebook icon again.  This time you will not need to login again but you should now see the image for the post.

    Facebook share example 3On this page, all you need to do is select where you want to post on Facebook, add your comment and then click “Share Post” and your post will now be posted to your selected Facebook page.

     

  • Do you have any website security features?

    Internet security is a hot topic these days. Unfortunately, no website is absolutely safe and even some of the biggest corporations on the internet have had problems, so we can't make an "iron clad" guarantee that your site will never be a victim of hackers.  However, Using Essential Oils Instant Websites uses a combination of security features to help provide extra protection from hackers who may be trolling the internet with malicious intent.  Our system has multiple layers of security with multiple providers to create redundant security for all our Instant Websites.

    As a subscriber, you can also do your part to protect your site. You will be given an opportunity to create your own password and user name during set-up. You should create a strong password and make sure you keep it in a safe place. We have also added a "sign in with Facebook" feature so that you can use the same Facebook user name and Facebook password that you use for your Facebook account, if that is easier for you to remember and use.

    Because of these tightened security protocols, if you try and fail to log on after the allotted number of times because you've used the wrong user name or password, you may temporarily be locked out by our system because it will think you are a threat. If that happens, you can always contact support@usingessentialoils.com for assistance. Also, remember to add usingessentialoils.com onto your safe email list so that our support emails are not blocked by your email security and spam filters.

  • What will my Using Essential Oils Instant Website URL address be?

    Your website address will be set up like this: yourname.usingessentialoils.com

    What if I want to use a different website address? 

    For people who have or want their own personal URL address, domain mapping is available as an add-on feature in our Customization Shop.  Regardless who you buy your domain from, we can map the domain to your Using Essential Oils website.  In this way, when people visit your domain, they will see your Using Essential Oils website.  You can further customize by changing the logo and background and you will have all of the features and content of Using Essential Oils websites with your name, look and feel.

  • What about technical support?

    We've made the site so “user friendly” that you shouldn't need much help, but just in case you do, we've set up a technical support system to solve any problems you might encounter.  Our FAQ section is the first place to go for help and if your specific question or conern is not adequately covered, just submit a support ticket.  Our support system tickets is the best approach for support.  With this system, your questions (one topic per ticket), stays open and tracked until you close the ticket.  On your dashboard under Support, you will see an archive of all of your support questions.

  • How will this help my business?

    Having a strong, professional and trustworthy image is an important part of any business.  Your own professionally designed and informative website sends that message. Additionally, the Using Essential Oils website contains content which helps you teach the benefits of essential oils without sending your clients all over the internet looking for reliable videos, articles, research and recommendations. This helps you become a credible and reliable source of information.

    Our powerful tools, like auto-blogging, MailChimp integration, Eventbrite integration, and lead capture tools, help you maximize your business building efforts in a cost effective and time efficient way, and stay in touch with your prospects and customers.

    Our instant websites, Certified Compliant by dōTERRA, allows you to focus on building your dōTERRA business rather than building a custom website.  Custom websites takes substantial hours of your time plus the professional service costs of a website developer, hosting provider, graphic designer, and technical support to design, build content and maintain your site with both content and technical infrastructure.  Importantly, you should know that other than our Using Essential Oils Certified Compliant websites,  dōTERRA does not allow Wellness Advocates below Diamond level to utilize dōTERRA brands, information, products or images on individual websites. Our websites can save you thousands of dollars in time and money upfront and remove the hours of frustration dealing with security, technical and content updating concerns.
