The men and women who take advantage of the business opportunity provided by the Traveling Vineyard become Wine Guides, or consultants, who host wine tasting events and offer interesting facts about the wines that they bring for guests to sample. By introducing people to wines that they may never have otherwise tried, Wine Guides broaden the guest’s expertise and earn money while doing so.
While an ideal way to earn a full or part-time income, the Traveling Vineyard, like other direct sales home businesses, pays independent representatives a commission, therefore, an individual’s income is dependent on how many products he or she sells. Naturally, Wine Guides, in addition to working, are having fun along with the guests at unpretentious tasting events, so for sociable individuals, their work environment is also enjoyable, and their income reflects their pleasure in their work.
To get started, individuals pay the Traveling Vineyard a reasonable initial expense of $189 for a Success Kit. While the Success Kit contains enough wine and supplies for the first two tastings, the real value is in the extensive training materials provided. Previous wine knowledge isn’t necessary since the training covers everything a Wine Guide needs to know to hold a successful tasting event. If Wine Guides generate enough orders from their tasting party, the Traveling Vineyard credits the Guide the cost of their next tasting set. Despite this incentive, there are no minimum sales requirements.
Several factors set the Traveling Vineyard apart from other direct sales opportunities, including the fact that they assign new Wine Guides a mentor to go to for advice. In addition, the Traveling Vineyard sets up new Wine Guides with their own personalized website, which is free for the first three months. The website will generate additional sales for the Wine Guide as the Traveling Vineyard’s wines are exclusive, and after initial orders from a tasting event, people will want additional bottles for themselves and to give as gifts.
Finally, interested men and women will feel secure knowing that the Traveling Vineyard’s business opportunity is legitimate and safe. The company has an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau and their business model and code of ethics has undergone rigorous scrutiny from the Direct Selling Association, whose seal they now proudly display on their website.
