As many product owners do, I regularly patrol Google to see how my product and its keywords are doing. Imagine my surprise when I see one of the search suggestions being “soap nuts don’t work”. I was floored to see it. How could someone even suggest that?
After I calmed down a bit, I thought about it and came to the following conclusion.
Soap nuts are a relatively new product in Canada and the USA. Any time a new product enters the market, there is a healthy skepticism that prevents many people from getting scammed. As a result, it is only natural to type in a phrase such as soap nuts don’t work or soap nuts scam. It is a natural reaction, especially with a product so revolutionary as this one.
The sad thing is that the search engines rightfully pick out the phrases that people type in and use them as suggested searches. Overall, this is a good thing, but when new products come to the marketplace that people are skeptical about, it associates them with words like scam and don’t work.
A perfectly good product will then have search suggestions such as these show up every time a person browses the internet for information about it. I don’t know about you, but if I am researching a product, and the search suggestions include the words ‘scam’ and ‘don’t work’, I would be much less likely to buy it.
I guess it is time for me to change my thinking about searching for products online. Words that would have turned me off in the past may just be a signal that something being sold is revolutionary, or a game changer in the industry.
Are Soap Nuts a Scam? My Experience
If you are reading this article, I am sure that you, like others, are curious how soap nuts work. I will share my experience with you, and you can judge from there.
Several years ago, when my wife & I had our first child, my wife chose to cloth diaper. She is good with the sewing machine, so she made her own stylish cloth diapers that were much better than the traditional ones.
The cloth diapers worked great for a while, but then they began to smell, and none of the name brand detergents were getting the odors out. After searching for the solution online, my wife ordered some soap nuts to see if they would work. To her amazement, they completely got rid of the smell. She quickly changed to using them as our main laundry detergent.
As an added bonus, a skin condition that had stretched across my belly for years completely cleared up within a month of switching detergents. With those two benefits, the thought that soap nuts don’t work seemed ridiculous, and did not even cross my mind.
After the personal success, we decided to import more and share the good news with other people in Canada and the USA. That is what started us in the business of selling soap nuts.
If you are skeptical of trying a new product, I do not blame you. I have been scammed in the past, and do not want to go there again.
Please be assured that soap nuts are not a scam. They do work, and are a great alternative to the harsh chemicals that are poured down the drain daily.
Please give soap nuts a try. If, after trying them, you feel that soap nuts don’t work, we will be happy to give you your money back.
