If you are tired of the same monotony, and sick of the lack of success that you get when you work with a direct selling program, there is something very important that you need to know before you give up on trying to be self-employed. The problem with the vast majority of direct selling programs is that they have a basal design flaw in their operating model. All of these traditional programs are based off of the “original big five” as they are called in the industry. These five would be World Book Encyclopedia, Avon, AMWAY, Mary Kay Cosmetics, and of course TupperWare. Out of these five and smaller operations like them which were wildly popular in the late 1950’s through the mid-1960s, especially with suburban men in their spare time, and idle housewives, established a business model that has now been used to sell everything from gourmet kitchen tools to women’s lingerie, upscale steaks and seafood to men’s custom made boxershorts and dress shirts, and diet products to home décor & holiday decorations. The main problem with how these programs work is that they all require you to use the hard sell to convince your friends and co-worker to buy products that they may not actually want or need.
Things in the industry of direct selling have not changed much in the nearly 70 years since its inception, that is until now. Today there is a whole new concept in home based entrepreneurship that is taking the world by storm. Imagine if you could work your own schedule, meet new and interesting people, make a nice side income in your spare time, and have a heck of a lot of fun doing it. Now imagine if you could do all of this by doing something that you normally like to do anyway. All of this is possible with the Traveling Vineyard.
Traveling Vineyard was started in the Napa Valley of California by a small group of people who had the idea that they could make a little extra money by sharing their passion for great wine with other wine lovers who had grown tired of the same wines they had been drinking for what seemed like forever. The concept was simple, most people who think that they do not like wine have that impression because they have never tried good wine presented in the right way, and that wine lovers are always interested in finding and trying new and exciting wines, but may not have the opportunity to find them easily. Traveling Vineyard give wine guides a chance to work with these wine novices, and wine explorers in a related and pressure free environment to expose them to a wide variety of great wines at a great price without any hassle.
The model is very easy. Wine guides get their kit and stock it with great wines currently being featured by the company. The online materials help guides learn everything they need to know about the wine and presenting it at a tasting party. This information includes what foods pair well with the featured wines, what music goes well with the wines and the guests, conversation starting ideas about wine and other topics to help new friends get acquainted, and more. After the Wine Guide is ready, he or she then plans a party and invites anyone they know or meet who is interested in trying wine for the first time, or expanding their wine horizons.
The difference in this program and others is that the wines are pretty much selling themselves during the event. When a person likes a wine, they will want more of it, if they do not like a particular wine, they won’t and nothing you say will change that. The wines are their own salespersons and you are just helping your guests learn and explore them. When the party is finished, all you have to do is talk to your guests about which wines they liked, which ones they didn’t like, and most importantly which ones they loved and want to order a bottle or two of. It’s that simple. This isn’t high pressure selling, this is just getting together with friends for a casual night together enjoying good food, good conversation, good music and of course great wine.
So, before you give up on the idea of being self-employed and making extra money in your free time, give Traveling Vineyard a try. It’s a different kind of direct selling program, for the different kind of entrepreneur of today.
