Tastefully Simple Consultant
As some of you know I've been super successful since I have become a Tastefully Simple consultant, and I couldn't possibly be happier. I know there are a ton of reps out there that post to try to pull you in, but I'm writing this because when I first started coming to these forums, I really didn't know much about mlm companies, and I had never even heard of Tastefully Simple. As I started reading some of the stuff from Watchdog, Wallace, and many other posters I began to think: "sheesh, I could do that!" So I started looking at different companies, most of them were interesting, but there were plenty of them that I couldn't relate to. One thing I really appreciated and wanted to expand my repertoire was cooking, so I looked at any company that dealt with food, and found Tastefully Simple. I know this is sounding like a testimonial where I tell you how I was "just like you" peeping around, and made the best decision of my life and all that, which may be true, but I'm actually going to focus on how it is being a Tastefully Simple consultant.
To get the obvious out of the way, I love it, and yeah, you should join. Now, before getting involved with any mlm company, there are some basic rules that I would follow if I were to ever do this again starting from scratch. So let it be known that no mlm is a miracle money maker, that isn't realistic. Let me tell you, you have to WORK, but if you're the right kind of person, its sooooo much fun!
The things you need to go over are:
a) The compensation plan. What does it entail? Does it suit my financial structure, can I build efficiently off it?
b) The policies and procedures - Is the product and system attractive to recruits? How much do I need in sales, and can I handle that? Is there a renewal rate?
c) What is my demographic? Is my area of sales completely saturated? Do I know a lot of people I could potentially introduce this to? When I run out of my main source, where will I go next?
These are all important questions no matter what mlm you choose, and they are pretty basic, but for many beginners they are so in love with the idea of it being easy that they completely over look them. With that out of the way, here is what life has been like for me as a Tastefully Simple consultant.
I apologize for giving you all the basics, but for those who were like me not even 6 months ago, I want to explain that Tastefully Simple consultants host Tastefully Simple parties, distribute catalogues, free samples, and recruit new individuals to the company. You get involved by either going to their web site, or by contacting a company consultant who will answer questions and explain the steps involved in the process of selling Tastefully Simple merchandise. Tastefully Simple provides new peeps with their own brand of benefits, along with the starter kit. I don't know how often the kit or the plan is updated, but so far the rules haven't changed for the time I've been with them. I got a choice between the "Just a Taste" business Kit which will supply you for two parties, and the "Business Blast Off" Kit, which will keep you supplied for four. My fiancee was a sweetheart and paid for me to get option 2, which cost him $170.00. The other kit is only $89, and looking back, I barely used half of my package for my first four parties, so I recommend the cheaper option, its more than enough. They both basically include products, samples, documentation, and information. I currently earn up to 30% commission on all of my sales, and that alone has brought us in a ton of money.
Its pretty simple (no pun intended) lol.
