If you’re reading this article, chances are you’re looking for some information on The Pampered Chef. In this simple third party review, I’ll go into some details about the company that will help you make an educated decision, if you’re thinking about joining. I’ll also go over how you can position yourself ahead of 95% of your competition so you can have a competitive edge.
First of all, let’s quickly touch upon the company itself. The Pampered Chef is a company that sells various cookware products through a direct sales business model. The company was founded in 1980 by Doris Christopher in Chicago. Her plan was to sell high quality cookware supplies through in-home gatherings and presentations. Christopher started with just over seventy products and did just under $7,000 in sales in the company’s first year. Today, while the company is headquartered in Illinois, they are operating in several countries including the US, the UK, Canada, Mexico and Germany. There are over 750 corporate employees and more than 65,000 distributors worldwide. From a business perspective, it’s interesting to note that in 2002 the company was acquired by Warren Buffet’s Berkshire Hathaway. Buffet is consistently ranked as one of the world’s wealthiest people, ranking 2nd in 2009 and currently ranked 3rd in 2010.
As far as their products go, the company markets a complete line of various cookware tools, kitchen tools, food products and cookbooks. There are way too many products to mention in this short review. However, if you’re serious about becoming a distributor, I would suggest you check out and do some due diligence on the products so you feel great promoting them to people you know and meet.
As far as the business opportunity goes, you can become a distributor for less than $160, which covers the cost of your starter kit. You can earn commissions for personally selling products, usually in an in-home presentation setting. You can also earn override commissions on other people you sponsor into your team. In addition to that, you can increase your commission percentages as you advance through their system and earn higher titles in the company. Overall, for the right person who enjoys the social scene of hosting home demonstrations and sharing cooking products and tips, it can be a fun and lucrative business venture.
In closing, The Pampered Chef is a popular and well established company that sells high quality products. With that said, that has little to do with whether or not you will experience the success you want. While it’s obviously beneficial to you to have a solid company backing your business, what really determines whether you will succeed or not, is your ability to recruit other distributors, your ability to sell products on a consistent basis and your ability to build a solid organization of distributors. And, one of the biggest factors to accomplishing those three things is your ability to market. If you don’t have a clue about marketing, you’ll have a tough time building your business. It’s important to your success that you get the right marketing training so you can brand yourself as a leader and generate an endless flow of quality, pre-interested leads. Of course, you can build your business strictly using old-school, traditional, offline techniques but, for most people, calling on your existing warm market will only take you so far. If you can combine effective offline strategies with the ability to generate 10-30+ leads a day online, there’s no telling how successful you can be with your Pampered Chef business.
