Pampered Chef: Catalog sales

  1. Can you simply sell things to friends/family, whomever from the catalog without having an official kitchen show? I know I would have to have some, but between shows if I have returning customers, can they just order anytime and I will still get commission? Sorry this might seem like a dumb question...I keep coming up with them since i'm trying to decide whether to become a seller.

    You can have as many catalog shows as you would like. My Upline Director feels that catalog shows arent as beneficial as kitchen shows but I think they are. As long as you have sales of $150 you can count it as a catalog show and still get commission. Or sometimes customers need something right away that I usually send in as an "Individual Order" and you can still get commission off it. PC focuses on kitchen shows so customers can see the tools and how they work. But if customers have been to alot of shows it doesnt matter to them to see it again. I have had $1500 catalog shows before! This is your business and you can run it how you want!!

    One of the great things about Pampered Chef is that it can work for almost any situation. There are many consultants who only do catalogs.

    What is the reason you only want to do catalogs? There are people who are very successful with catalog shows, but I happen to think it is easier to get higher sales from kitchen shows. I think it is harder for your hosts to sell products that the guests have not seen. If your goal for starting your own Pampered Chef business is to make a substantial income, catalog shows might be difficult.

    Talk with your recruiter about your concerns. If you have any questions, feel free to post them here.

    I had an inactive consultant tell me that he would have a catalog show, and put in as a kitchen show. He can't do that can he?

    Don't look down at the catalog show, There is a bunch of women who would love to get involved PC but who do not want to be a host until their houses are fixed up a bit,,,, So many are excitrd by havbing parties though catalog and email - it works,

  7. I don't think what he did was honest. I don't think we can submit a catalog show as a kitchen show. The consultant doesn't get anything out of it, but the host does ($15 extra in free products for buying the ingredients).

    Catalog shows are great!!

    I think you should do them as much as possible personally. I have had more catalog shows than kitchen shows (not by choice) and to me it is all the same. I have only had to actual kitchen shows so far with 2 more this month and the rest have been catalog shows. I even have someone in Utah doing one for me and I am in South Carolina!! I hope this helps.
