Hi Thermomix ladies,
I've been a bit of a stalker of the thermomix threads and their website lately. I can't afford to buy one, but am seriously thinking of becoming a consultant in order to pay for my own, and to learn how to best use it.
Can anyone please tell me some pros and cons of being a thermy consultant?
Any info would be helpful. I sold party plan perfumes & aromatherapy years ago and while I did well, I did find it emotionally draining and time consuming, so I don't want a career, just to pay off the thermomix and maybe make some extra cash as I go along. I have a 5 months old and a 2.5 year old and I study also, so time commitment will be one night a week.
So.... I have some specific questions. No need to answer any if they're a bit personal about money. But please just tell me anything you think I might need to know.
how many demos are average for you each week?
How long do they take usually, including your preparation work etc?
What is your average sale rate?
Is it possible to have a small income on one demo a week? (I know with my previous party plan thing, it would have been hard to keep business going at that slow pace).
I know people say 'the machine sells itself'.... but really, does it?
What are the incentives for people to book a demo?
Is it difficult to get people to book one?
Thanks in advance for your help
