There are dozens of direct marketing companies that offer many individuals a source of income. One of the most popular, up and coming, companies is The Traveling Vineyard. The company offers a wide variety of unique wines. They also offer their teammates a variety of benefits and perks.
Individuals who join the team at Traveling Vineyard are called “Wine Guides.” The starter kit, also known as the Success Kit, comes with everything needed to begin a career as a Wine Guide. The starter kit costs under $200 and includes enough wine for two tasting events, glasses, carrying case, and other wine essentials. The Success kit also includes all the necessary paperwork to begin a successful business; brochures, business cards, flyers, and guides. The starter kit also includes an online training program and a personal website to use for 3 months for free.
The earning potential with Traveling Vineyard will be determined by how much time and effort is put into building the business. Wine tasting events are the best way to earn income with Traveling Vineyard. Wine Guides can earn up to 35% of the commissions on their sales. The average commission check per wine tasting events is around $100. However, the more members in your team and the more you have sales will increase the earning potential.
Besides the earning potential, flexibility is another reason why joining Traveling Vineyard is a great idea. Wine tastings, online sales, and other promotions are all done on your own time. You can schedule it around another job, school or family responsibilities.
There is no minimum sales requirements or monthly sales fees that are required of Wine Guides. The Guides are not required to keep wine in stock, except for their tasting sets, either. All the wine is shipped directly from the warehouse to the client.
