I’ve had a few people reach out to me with questions about what Traveling Vineyard is and what it means to be a Wine Guide. Here are a few quick, key facts that will help clear any confusion and answer some burning questions that may have been lingering in your wine-loving brain.
What is Traveling Vineyard?
Traveling Vineyard is like Avon and Scentsy in respects to being a direct sales company. Unlike those companies, there aren’t any monthly minimum sales amounts or quotas that have to be met. Traveling Vineyard gives us Wine Guides complete freedom with our business by not having any unnecessary fees or requirements. Instead, they have amazing incentives, personal bonuses, and perks that make us Wine Guides want to excel in our business.
What is a Wine Guide?
I know you’ve heard me say I’m a Wine Guide or seen my #wineguidelife posts. We help hosts set up their free wine tasting events and allow people to order wine directly from us. We sell wine and get paid a nice commission from all the wine people order.
There isn’t any inventory we have to keep on hand, we don’t have to deliver people’s wine since it gets shipped directly to their door, and get to order our personal wine at a 20% discount.
You don’t have to know anything about wine, just love to drink and share wine with others! There isn’t any info to memorize either. Traveling Vineyard provides all the info in shnazzy little cards to take with you as well as detailed info in our Wine Guide portal that you can print or save.
How Much Does A Wine Guide Make?
You start off at 15% commission and it goes up from there. You get paid 3 times a month, which is practically unheard of with direct sales companies. You get to reap the benefits of your hard work 3 times a month rather than waiting for a once a month check. There are also personal bonuses that you get paid on top of your regular commission.
Like earning trips and perks instead? You can earn points called Thrive points that can go towards luxurious getaway trips, free wine, shopping for designer brand products, etc.
How Much Time Does It Take?
You can be as active or inactive as you like. Obviously, the more active you are, the more money you can make. Each wine tasting event takes about an hour, so you can do 1 event a weekend for a total of 4 events each month if you’d like a couple hundred bucks a month in your pocket.
You also get paid whenever someone orders wine from your website/directly from you, so you can also devote time to social media and sharing your website with friends and family to order. There is no minimum or limit to how much time you spend on your business!
How Much Does It Cost?
You can sign up to be a Wine Guide for $99 or $179. One kit doesn’t make you any more or less a Wine Guide, they just offer different things.
And here’s the kit I purchased when I joined:
If you’re wanting Fun, Friendship, Financial Reward, Flexibility, and/or Fulfillment, this is the place to be. I’d be your ‘wine mama’ and guide you to success!
