WHY WOULD YOU WANT EMAIL & TEXT MARKETING?
One of the biggest reasons is that it is a great way to keep your team members and customers interested, buying & happy.
These days a lot of people are using text messaging, but in some cases, it just doesn't work for some of your marketing needs.
For instance, Essenty offers pre-written email series (releasing Oct) that help your new premium starter kit customers. This is an amazing series of auto-sent emails where each email is focused on one of the products in the starter kit.
This is simply too much information to put in a text. However, wouldn't it cool to remind them (via text) that they have these emails coming in?
- A broadcast campaign is a single marketing message, that is sent to subscribers of a particular broadcast subscription list.
- For Example: “August Free Products” might be a marketing message I send to my “Promos & Specials” subscribers list in August and “September Free Products” might be one I send in September.
- For Example: Multiple broadcast campaigns can be sent to members of a broadcast subscription list - meaning each marketing message you create is called a “campaign”.
- A series campaign is a pre-defined series of marketing messages that are pre-written and automatically sent in a specified order at pre-determined intervals. It is sent to subscribers of a particular series subscription list.
- For example, the 10 marketing messages that form my “Essential Oils: 101 Email Class” would be a series campaign that is sent out to those who subscribe to that series, either at your invitation or a signup form.
- Or the 12 marketing messages that form my “Healthy Home Ditch & Switch” would be a series campaign that is sent out to those who subscribe to that series, again either at your invitation or a signup form.
- Series campaigns are sometimes called drip campaigns. They are always pre-written and automatically sent in a specified order at pre-determined intervals.
Marketing Messages can be emails or texts.

SPAM Safety Precautions To Protect You
In order that Essenty’s email & text delivery systems works well into the future for everyone, we have to ensure that it’s not abused by anyone using it to spam - either to prospect leads or customers.
When others start spamming (meaning getting a large number of complaints of spam) it affects your email deliveries as well - so Essenty has installed some safety precautions to protect you.
Spamming hurts everyone!
Opt-In Subscription Lists
When adding your contacts to a list you can choose to . . .
- WELCOME them to the list - This means you add them to the list without asking. Then once you confirm you want them added, an email is sent them immediately letting them know they have been added and offers them a way to decline and unsubscribe.
- INVITE them to subscribe - This means you're asking them to subscribe. Once you confirm that you want to invite them to subscribe, an email is sent them immediately, inviting them to subscribe.
And we also know some of you might already have them on another list and you are just transferring them over . . . in this case, please contact us.
This system is releasing one section at a time.

Emails and Texts Require Marketing Credits
️ What Are "Marketing Credits"? ️
Essenty has recently built the emailing & texting capability into your marketing platform!
Essenty is charged per email and per text that is sent. To make this service scaleable for teams of all sizes, we created a credit system that will debit your "bank of credits" as you send emails or texts. We call these credits "marketing credits."
➡️ How Many Credits Does An Account Get?
The $8 per month GROW WITH US plan gets 500 credits per month (plus 500 bonus credits the first month). So with this plan, your account gets 500 additional credits each month, and if you don't use them, they will "rollover", meaning they are available to you until you use them.
➡️ How Are Credits Used?
The credits are used in your account like this:
- Emails - use 1 credit each (unlimited free incoming emails, to your email address on file).
- Texts - use 10 credits per outgoing text (with or without images) - unlimited free incoming texts.
This means that for every email that you send from your account, it will use 1 credit from your "credits bank."
Then for every text message that you send, it will use 10 credits from your "credits bank." Text messaging is more costly across the board, and I'm so proud we were able to keep our pricing EXTREMELY competitive.
All incoming emails and texts are totally free!
➡️ What If I Need More Credits?
You are able to add 5,000 more credits to your account for $10 anytime you need more. And if you're using that many - it is a good thing, since it means you have a large team!
- Imagine that you have a GETTING STARTED CHECKLIST for your new business builders. You can set up a series of emails that give them the information a little bit at a time, and it automatically sends them the next email in your preset time frame.
- Imagine that you want to offer site visitors to subscribe to your email series on a CLEANSING PROGRAM.
- Imagine that you want to provide an ESSENTIAL OILS BASIC TRAINING series and allow folks to subscribe to that sequence from your website.
- Imagine Young Living has just released something super awesome and you want to get an email out to ALL of your team or customers. You can send a broadcast email out to everyone at once and even shoot them a quick text to check for your email.
- There are immeasurable ways to use email marketing! But keep in mind, it is simply a great way to stay in touch with your customers, prospects and business builders.
Essenty will always LISTEN to your needs!
Training is important and you can rest assured that we provide top-notch training for using this system and keep the instructions as easy as possible. We take someone who knows nothing about this and teach them to do it! Everything about Essenty is created with the goal to be easy to use.
