Hi Ladies,

I'm in SA & curious how much the set up costs are to become a demonstrator?

Thanks!

I am booked in for a home demo on Friday night, but since have been thinking about becoming a demonstrator?

Would anyone be able to PM me the details of what is involved?

i went along to one of their open days to see if it was for me. you had to buy a business kit which was a couple of hundred dollars and you have to find the people to sell to yourself. it sounded very structured - there was a set number of demos you had to do,  and you had to sell at least one thermomix a month or be put out to pasture. i was hoping it would be more easy going where i would just show people at my leisure and if anyone wanted one, i could sell them one.

i decided that it was easier just to have demos at my place and have my consultant come over every couple of months.

I recently went to my first demo a few weeks back (having known nothing about it) and loved the machine. Hubby was at the demo with me and thought the machine was good, but not $2k good.

OUr friends bought one and I think if they're still using it in 6months I will be able to persuade hubby its our turn.

Becoming a demonstrator sounds interesting, only problem is I don't have a huge social network here to exploit to get started! :/

i notice that a lot of consultants don't last. i've met a few people who have a tm who no longer have their original consultants, so i don't think consultancy is for everyone. any way you look at it, it isn't easy to sell a $2000 appliance just like that. of course the company make it sound easy, but when i looked into it, i realised that it was easier to just save the money and buy one. my friend started a little fund to buy one - she's saving her birthday and everything else money towards the tm - $5 a day for a year, and faster with gift money - she's get one in no time.

I was wondering if someone can PM with the costs involved to become a consultant? And how many hours per week is involved?

Hi ladies,

I went along to a managers place this morning to find out more about being a consultant. I already have a TMX, so it's only a small start up fee for me, but what I'm wondering is how those of you who are already consultants find it? How many do you actually sell/month? Are many of those payment in full, or on finance? How long do your demos actually go for? Do you really do only about 12 hours/week? etc etc. PM's welcome if you don't want to say it publically.

Cheers

i can only go on what my consultant has told me when i was toying with the idea of becoming a consultant. she says you can't do it for the money because tms are a difficult applance to sell and they don't pay as much as the other party plan companies - tupperware is far more generous and easier to sell. you have to do it for the love of it and when you do have a sale, you get a pleasant surprise.
when i went to the "open day", of course, they made it sound really good, but i found the group leader quite pushy, and that put me off - they expect at least four demos a month and a sale a month, which is well and good, but there are months when i know i'd be too busy to fit it in. judging from the demos i have had, the length of the demo really depends on the crowd you invite, some are about 3 hours and it can last for as long as there is discussion.
there seems to be a high turnover rate of consultants, hence the push to be always recruiting. i can only speculate as to why the turnover is high.

Hi,

I've been a Thermomix consultant for almost 3 years & love it. Bought my machine & within about 3 weeks had decided to becoming a consultant - this is after swearing I'd never do "party plan" again!

I can echo what Grace has said. Most direct sale companies have firm monthly quotas, so Thermomix is not unique in this way. In saying that, they're very flexible & the whole idea is to be able to fit it in around your/your family's needs.

As I eluded to in the first paragraph, I've worked for a "party plan" company before - Thermomix beats it easily. They're a really good company to work for, with great training, great support & great incentives.

Yep, it's a pricey product, there's no doubt about that. But the massive growth in popularity that I've seen since joining in 2010 to now has blown me away & proven that it's no fly-by-night thing. You get what you pay for. And Thermomix is worth every cent, in my opinion.

You're not going to make millions from it & it's not some get-rich-quick-scheme. It's a job. It's your own business. You have to work - sometimes quite hard. To me that's pretty typical though of any job. But I absolutely LOVE the flexibility. Working when I want to. Not having to ask a "boss" for time off work to help at my daughter's school. No rushing in the morning to get to a city office (like I used to). No anxiety about having to leave work early for whatever reason. I love it! :)

Cheers,
Karen

I'm a TM Consultant, and quit my 'real' job about four weeks ago.  I love that I can now work 'guilt free' around the kids.

We have fortnightly meetings, but they're great fun, and I book my demonstrations around our family needs and requirements.

As I love the TM, and cooking for people, it's really more of a hobby / passion for me, than a job. :)

Hi Redmum77, Did you find a consultant... a lot of these comments have been quite negative but I have just started in the Thermomix world and enjoying every moment. I have been out of work for sometime and needed something and it was not that hard... $600 deposit for a machine (if you already have one... bonus) then I got given the option to buy the business kit which was only $180... so not sure why people would complain about getting marketing equipment for you business at such a good price. And then you have an option to get a Thermomat and Thermoserve for extra $70. So yep it's a good a deal. Plus you get the added bonus of meeting other like minded people... or even different people to socialise. Coming from a family where dinner is not exciting this is exciting for me. I am learning to cook healthy meals and learning about nutrition. I can't complain and love it. I am wanting to get demos to practice and move forward so if you are still looking please let me know Redmum77... I am in West End Brisbane. But no where is too far. I am going to the Goldy Sunday Week.

Yeah I saw how much my cleaner was down when she hooked up to be a consultant.  It cost her a lot of money when she finally realised she didn't have the network to connect to people who could afford to buy the machines.
