How much will I earn, and how will I get paid?
Your paycheck is based on the wine you market! The more you market each month, the more you can earn! Our Wine Guides can earn up to 35% on their personal volume from wine tastings to online shopping cart orders each month, and additional bonuses should you choose to share Traveling Vineyard and invite others to your team. You’re paid via direct deposit three times each month, so you’re never waiting long to see your paycheck! The more you market each month, the more you can earn!
Do I need to be good at sales to be a Wine Guide?
Our Wine Guides are community builders–they facilitate fun, free wine tastings for friends, family and their communities. You do not need to be a salesperson to be a successful Wine Guide–just get ready to have fun, meet new people, and learn more about wine!
Are there minimum requirements to stay active?
We don’t have any sales minimums to maintain your status as a Wine Guide. We have a $19.95 website fee that you pay each month to remain active, but we do not require that you sell every month to continue to be a part of our Wine Guide community!
What about the legal stuff?
As a Wine Guide in Australia, no personal licensing is required. Traveling Vineyard complies with all legal measures so that you feel secure and supported in your business. Wine Guides also have their Hosts sign a Host Responsibility Letter, outlining the specifics of a tasting and what’s expected with the consumption of alcohol.
What costs will I have?
Your costs are very low with Traveling Vineyard. The initial expense is $99 for your Essentials Success Kit. It includes all the materials you need to get started and even your first two 5-bottle tasting sets to run your first two tastings. After the first two events, you replace the wine for your next tasting set, BUT if your event met the standards for a ‘qualified event’ (which is determined by the orders you collect), we credit you the cost of your next set. In other words, a successful tasting means a free tasting set. Finally, when you join, we set you up with your very own, personalized Wine Guide website. The first three months of hosting your website are free, after which there is a $19.95 monthly fee.
What kind of time commitment should I expect?
That’s entirely up to you. There are training modules to complete and events to schedule, arrange, and attend, but you decide your own pace. Most events tend to fall on evenings or weekends and last just a few hours. Take a look at your schedule now. What kind of time commitment do you want to make?
What kind of training is available?
We don’t expect any of our Guides to be wine experts. That’s why we’ve developed a great training program. You’re assigned a mentor who is always available to answer questions, cheer you on, and hand out advice. And, we have online training modules that teach you more about wine, recruiting and running your team, and planning for the future of your business—all at your own pace.
