Pampered Chef: Sales Pampered Chef Website

  1. Hi, I'm a new Pampered Chef consultant. I have a website and would like some ideas on how to get traffic/orders on it. I know pampered chef has strict rules about advertising it. I'm just wondering if it's actually worth having. Any comments or suggestions are welcome.

    Definately

    Jennifer,

    I have found that my website has been a huge success for my shows. One host had $400 in orders before her show via my website. Almost every show I have has at least 1 order via the web. And when you break the cost down to monthly costs, it has definately paid for itself!

    As far as outside traffic, I have only had a couple of orders. I have a tear off flyer that I carry with me and put one up in the grocery stores, gas stations etc. I have gotten a booking off of one of these.

    And you asked about PC strict rules about the website. There is really no way to advertise your web site except to the customers you already have. You can list your web address in your e-mails; however, you can not list your web address in your signature for any online groups...including this one. There are consultants who have paid for google ads and such. But I would not want to be one breaking the rules for the awesome company we work for!

    Hope this helps!

    Are you sure?

    Marlene,

    I thought if the group was strictly Pampered Chef people looking it was OK to list our web addresses? It would only be a problem if it came up in a Yahoo search engine or google or whatever that the entire public could see.
    If you are right, then I need to change my signature here.
    I have heard about them appearing on directors loops all over the place and no has said anything about those that I know of. Of course then again, the directors have a different set of rules.
    Let me know. Thanks!

    John,

    I contacted the Home Office regarding this web site and listing our web addresses. There response was that we are not allowed to list our web addresses because you do not need to be a consultant to view this web site. Now, I am on a Director's loop where only PC Director's are allowed to view, the Home Office said this was fine to list my web address at this loop.

    Hope this helps!

    Thanks Marlene

    Never gave it much thought to why anyone but a consultant would come in here.

    That's something I try to remember when I'm posting! I found this site through a google search, so I always try to keep in mind that we don't know who might be reading our messages. I know that if somebody happened to google my name, the only thing that comes up that is actually me is a couple of my more recent posts here. What if I had been venting about the awful experience I had with Mary Badhostess and she googled my name looking for a phone number or my website it pointed her right to me talking about her?! Ugh, it makes my stomach sink to think about it!!
