All Country Gourmet Home consultants earn 20 to 45 percent commissions and hostesses are usually paid and rewarded with products on orders that are over $100. The current bonus plan covers 15 percent off on all orders for six months for a minimum order worth $100.
The exact figures of the commissions and discounts are 25 percent on
orders below $100, 35 percent on orders between $100 to $200, 40 percent
for orders in between $200 to $1000 and 45 percent on orders above
$1,000. Consultants are also paid 5 percent of the orders from their
down line. Since the company's compensation plan is not based on
multi-level marketing principles, all your recruits are considered your
down line. Commissions are paid quarterly and only active consultants
are paid for their recruits' orders. An active consultant is somebody
who has personal orders worth $100 every quarter.
There are a lot of ways to earn your income as a Country Gourmet Home consultant, but the best way to sell the products effectively is to hold Country Gourmet cooking parties. As a consultant, you will cook the dishes using the products for the guests to sample. You can also sell the products at school fundraisers, home cooking shows and craft shows.
