This post is especially written for the people who are up late at night looking for job opportunities and are curious about what it really means to be a WineShop at Home consultant.
I see you! I know you’re trying to find out what this job is really all about and I know you probably have plenty of questions that you want answered before you’ll pick up the phone and give me a call.
So I’ll give you as much information as I can, but let’s be realistic: what I write here is going to be more like a WineShop at Home highlight reel. If you want the nuts and bolts, click HERE to connect with me directly.
WineShop at Home: A Highlight Reel
What is WineShop at Home?
We are a licensed, bonded Napa Valley winery that has chosen to sell wine through in-home tastings instead of in stores and restaurants. The wine is exclusively sold through in-home parties, very similar to the structure of Tupperware.
We sell our wine through a network of consultants across the country. Probably by the time you read this, we will have about 5,000 consultants nationwide (which really, if you think about it, is a drop in the bucket. The United States has a population of 325 million and I THINK there are like 700,000 Mary Kay ladies so… you do the math).
What do WineShop at Home consultants do?
We lead in-home wine tastings that are very similar to a wine tasting you might have been to at a winery or restaurant, except they take place in the comfort of your home.
Our consultants earn a commission based on wine sold that night, ranging from 20-35% based on their position in the company.
What does WineShop at Home offer?
Besides offering in-home tastings where customers can purchase wine from a consultant, our wine can also be purchased directly online from consultants. Additionally, we have a monthly Wine Club to which consultants may sell memberships (these memberships earn the consultant a recurring, monthly passive income).
We also offer personalized wine, gift baskets and corporate gifting packages.
How else do WineShop at Home consultants make money?
Besides wine sales, WineShop at Home consultants can also make money through building a team. If a consultant recruits other people to join the business, she will earn an extra 9% commission on her own sales as well as up to 2-8% on team’s sales.
However, I need to specifically point out that building a team is not required or even necessary to bring in a significant part-time income from this business. I have team members who exclusively lead tastings and do not wish to build a team and they make their entire income off wine sales. It’s a flexible business!
What other perks does WineShop at Home offer?
Our consultants can earn their own wine every month, meaning when they sell a certain amount they earn FREE wine! They can also purchase wine from themselves and earn a commission on their own wine purchases.
Consultants participate in our annual gala awards, they earn incentive trips, they can win prizes, get recognition within the company, and take advantage of industry discounts. They reap the social benefits of sipping wine with cool people (you meet a lot of people when you’re in this line of work) and some savvy consultants are even able to leverage their work with WineShop into tax benefits (speak with your tax professional for more information on this).
Does WineShop train its consultants?
Absolutely. WineShop at Home gives the consultants access to incredible sales training, on-the-job training, local events and a national annual convention to fully support its consultants to excel. You can do the training at your own speed and participate at a level that works best for you.
I’ve been with this company for 13 years, and over that time period, I’ve seen it grow consistently. We’re not currently in all 50 states but we’re getting there, and every month it seems our team members are setting new records and hitting new goals.
If you want to be part of an active, exciting, up-and-coming business, this is a really great time to join WineShop at Home. If you’d like to get into the nitty gritty details, let’s talk. Click HERE to connect today.
