TRAIN-The first thing you should do is go to your Consultant Corner which is your online office on the Pampered Chef website and explore the menu options.
Get familiar with your office.
Then, click on DASH.
This is where you will have training modules to learn more about products, marketing, booking, recruiting, etc.
You will also be added to our Organizations Facebook groups where you will have access to training calls, recordings, lives, and more that will help you in each aspect of the business.
Once you stop learning how to get better, you will stop growing.
Keep learning, progressing, and growing!.
BE ACTIVE IN TEAM GROUPS- the groups you are added to will give you a sense of community and will give you unlimited access to other consultants and leaders where you can ask questions, share big wins and activity, see everything going on in our teams and organizations.
BE PRESENT- You won't be able to do everything all the time, but when you can, be present for training calls, lives and other helpful resources that will help you grow your business.
ALSO, be present within your team and stay in touch with your recruiter.
DON'T GET DISCOURAGED- Your business may take off right away and surprise you, your launch party may be a bust, your family and friends might look at you funny for joining network marketing.
STAY CONSISTANT AND POSITIVE.
Block out the negativity and give it you best shot for at least your first 90 days.
By joining this company, you really have nothing to lose but EVERYTHING to gain like an extra income, free products, incentives, prizes, vacations, a sense of community, and a sense of accomplishment.
SET GOALS- At the beginning you may not know what a realistic goal is for you, but soon you will get into the groove and know how you can push yourself.
Set goals each month for your sales, bookings, and recruiting and keep your eye on the prize.
Crushing your goals becomes addicting and will keep you on track for growing your business.
WORK YOUR BIZ- Don't let the fear of failing keep you from giving it your all.
Send out messages, post on your social media, go live, share the biz with others, etc.
Create content once you are comfortable doing so that is relatable and be yourself.
Sell solutions not products.
WORK SMARTER NOT HARDER- We use a "4 gets you more" philosophy.
We shoot for 4 parties each week (virtual) no matter what keeping in mind on average: one will flop or drop, one will be a Rockstar, and two will come out being average selling parties.
Having more parties online in a week gives you the opportunity to make more money, reach more people to show your biz, and it really doesn't take anymore work than running just one! Maximize your time and make making money feel easier.
Just as if you were starting your own business doing anything else, you would have to invest in some services to help you run that business efficiently.
After your first 90 days, there is a $10/month maintenance fee for your personal website.
After your first 6 parties using Vizzlie (the automated system that takes all the work out of parties for you) is $10/month fee.
4 a month for insurance to cover your party orders for your guests.
You may also invest in an app that can help you create content like pictures to use in your parties.
(there are plenty of graphics out there in Facebook groups or on Pinterest that other people are kind enough to share for you to use that they created, but creating your own content should be a goal once you get settled in your business.).
You are also responsible for any giveaways or prizes you want to use during your parties.
(there is a special way to add prizes to parties you will see later in a video) Things you can start out offering as prizes if you choose to are:.
Our products $6 and under.
2 Season' Best cookbook.
Free shipping which is $5.25 if shipped to the host
You do not have to offer prizes or do giveaways if you don't want to, but the template for the party that's already made for you suggests the guests in the party will earn tickets toward a grand prize so you will have to take out those posts manually.
The number of prizes and how much you spend on prizes is up to you and you never have to tell the guests what the prizes are.
People love surprises!
HOW DOES A PARTY WORK
You, as a consultant, find hosts that will let you throw them a party whether that's online, catalog, or in-home.
The host invites their friends to the party.
The friends learn about products and place orders which earns the host rewards and free products depending on the sales of the party.
A party must reach $200 to qualify for rewards (but can be submitted at any amount).
Watch these videos first in order then if you need to you can refer to the steps for creating a party written out below.
(the videos have more info that you need to hear)
Video #1: Welcome, Dash, 30/90 date, Rewards
Video #2: Create A Party, Edit Party, Find Links

WELCOME TO THE TEAM
, Everything you need to know before you get started!
First, let me say I am so excited for you to be taking advantage of this opportunity that has been able to help people all over supplement or replace their main source of income all while enriching lives one meal at a time! This document is lengthy and very detailed, but it has all the information you need to get started and is important to know for the successful of your business. I would suggest taking notes on the highlights of the document and ALWAYS ask questions if you ever need help or do not understand something. Keep it handy for you to be able to refer to anytime.
Notes for getting started
Set up your direct deposit! Sign in, type in "direct deposit" in the search bar, click "financial information", click "set up or update direct deposit"
We get paid for sales submitted the 1st-15th on the 21st and 16th-30/31st on the 7th of each month
YOUR 1st 90 DAYS ARE MOST IMPORTANT- You can earn the most in incentives and cash prizes!! You can always find this information in the Dash Resource Library in your Consultant Corner including so many more helpful documents.
YOU ARE YOUR OWN BOSS- I am here for you in every way I can be. Always ask for help when you need it. BUT this business is yours and I cannot work it for you. Though I want you to succeed, you must be the one to take in what you learn and ACT on it. You can also go to the "discussion" tab in the left-hand menu under "about." This is the feed for the group that will have all the posts. You can create your own Welcome Post if you'd like, even add a pic of yourself to make it more personal, but you don't have to do this (though I recommend it.)
Next open a new tab and go to the vizzlie website. Log in with Facebook or create an account and use your Facebook log in which it'll give you the option to do.
If it's your FIRST time or the first party in a NEW MONTH follow these next steps. If not, skip down to indicated spot
Once you're logged in, there will be a place In the left hand menu that says "facebook" under "templates" under "planning." Click on "Facebook"
It'll ask you to do something like "import template" click that
Then it'll ask you for the code. Type it in (you can see the code posted in team full throttle every month or I've probably sent it in the group message. If you don't know it just ask me)
It should say the month we are in and the year and it's made by Cara long. Upload it
Skip here if you have already uploaded the template for the month
Click on groups in the left hand menu toward the top
You should see the groups you are trying to create at the bottom. Click on each "track group" they will move to the top
You'll do the next steps for each group separately
Open one of the groups you just tracked
Connect your business page
Make sure in Facebook that your personal profile is invited to the party and that you have made it an administrator in the group.
Scroll until you see a button that says "use template" toward the bottom and click it
Click on current month and year template and choose the date that is the day AFTER the party is supposed to start and then upload (don't worry about the time here)
READ THIS STATEMENT AGAIN
You should see thumbnails of the posts and the time they say they are posting
If you click on a post a menu will come up where you can edit or preview post or even hurry or delay the time which you will want to do if you have multiple parties going at once
Scroll up some and there will be a switch that says "resume automated posts" click that. The box should turn green.
If it's green you're done! Repeat the last steps for each group till all are green and ready to go. Then vizzlie will post all of the posts on the right day at the right time!
If you read this document in one sitting you might feel overwhelmed but understand you will learn by taking action! Soon, you will see that creating a party is easy and will become a habit that won't take you near as long as your very first time. Always call your recruiter or myself if you ever need any help with anything.
Everyone that has started and been successful in this business started where you did.with a kit and a dream. Stay motivated and stay consistent. I'm so happy you are here and cannot wait to see where this road takes you!
Pampered Chef Director
HOST COACH- coaching your hosts throughout their party is a MUST. Having the host active in the party helps get guests involved. Your host can also make your job easier by helping you get bookings, recruits, etc. I will send you a document strictly on tips for running successful parties which includes host coaching.
FRONTLOAD- Schedule your parties by giving your potential host 2 of your closest dates to come (next two Fridays), once you have 4 in each or are satisfied with the number, then offer the next 2 dates to come.
we usually run parties that last 9 days (starting Friday and going to the following Sunday) but vizzlie (the automated system we use that does all the posting work in the parties for us, thank goodness) is only set up to post for 7 days so you may want to edit the last few posts in the template because some of them may indicate your party is closing on Friday and not Sunday (this will make more sense later).
after you get comfortable using vizzlie, take the time to edit the new monthly template at the first of each month when you upload it so the changes will be saved and can be added to your new parties. You can edit the wording, pictures, links, etc. If you need more help with editing the monthly template just call me or your recruiter. (this will make sense after watching the video)
always go in this order: Consultant corner, Facebook, vizzlie.
always try to create your parties the Sunday before the Friday that they will start so by Monday you can get your hosts the info they need to start inviting and they have about 4 days to get a good guest count by the time the party starts. Some hosts aren't great at inviting and will need all week to get guests to their party
Download the Pampered Chef app on your phone that is a greenish blue. You will NOT be able to log into it but you don't have to. For easy access to pricing and info on products that you need to answer guests questions just go to the app, click on "browse products" and search what you are looking for. There will be info on use, care, warranty, etc.
Creating all your parties for the week at once is easiest on your computer and you can do everything else from your phone if you would like throughout the week. Keep in mind, on your phone things might be a little rearranged in format.
Video #4: Close A Party, Add Free Gift, Put In Booking
Log into pamperedchef.com and go to the menu. Click on Consultant Corner (this is your online office where you will go frequently to check on sales, parties, guests, etc)
Click on the plus sign in a circle to create a party
Pick whichever type of party you are having (facebook parties are virtual)
Choose start and finish date
our parties usually start on Fridays and go until the next Sunday. Keep in mind if you work on Sundays you might want to run your parties differently to where they end on a different day so you have time to get them closed out.
Enter the host's information (always ask for the hosts info at the time of booking so you have it and add them as a friend on FB if you are not already friends)
Change the party name to "first name last name's Pampered chef Party"
EX: "Vallari Escobar's Pampered Chef Party" (if this is your own party to launch your biz it should say "Vallari Escobar's Pampered Chef LAUNCH Party"
Leave other fields alone
if you created an in-home party, you're done.
2. Facebook (for virtual parties only)
Go to Facebook on your computer
If you haven't done so, create a business page in facebook which you can use to promote your business and run parties more efficiently and effectively. Refer to the video you watched to create a business page.
Go to your biz page and on the left side there is a menu. Click on groups
Somewhere close to the middle of the page there should be a button that says "create group"
Change the group name to "first name last name's Pampered chef Party"
Then hit create. Don't mess with any other settings
Once it's created you'll see that you need to add a cover picture.
this has to be done on your computer. For some reason it won't let you from your phone. Use a photo related to the month of the party and save it to your computer first to upload it to the groups cover photo.
After finding and saving a new cover photo, Somewhere in the middle of the page there should be some grey buttons. Click on the one that says "more..." then click "edit group settings"
The first thing you can add is a description. The description should say something along these lines and have your own info not mine and the name of your current host in the spots there is another name. You are welcome to change it how you feel necessary.
"Melina is hosting a Pampered Chef Party ...right on Facebook! Why leave your house when you can join us in sweats with a cold drink, ONLINE, for about a week of fun! I will post to the party and you'll want to be here to learn about products, recipes, and to participate in games and conversation for the chance to WIN PRIZES! Frequently asked questions
If you have your order sent to the host, you pay a flat $5.25 in shipping.
WHEN DOES THE PARTY CLOSE? The last day to order will be Sunday March 1st HOW DO I ORDER? Visit the link to Melina's party https://www.pamperedchef.com/party/melinamason
I DO NOT LIVE NEAR THE HOST, CAN I HAVE IT SHIPPED TO ME? Yes you can! After you have added all items to your cart and go to check-out, you can change the item to ship to yourself.
WHEN WILL MY CREDIT/DEBIT CARD BE CHARGED? Your card is NOT charged until the closing date of the party mentioned above. This allows me to add on any prizes or discounts won.
WHAT IF I NEED TO ADD ON OR TAKE OFF AN ITEM AFTER IVE ORDERED?
I'll do that on my end, just message me your changes. Don't be afraid to change your order as many times as needed. I want you to get products you're happy with and I'm happy to help in anyway I can!
I am so happy you are here. Enjoy the party!
Pampered Chef Consultant
change the info to fit your party as in the names should be your hosts names, the closing date should be changed, the link should be changed to your hosts link from the Consultant corner, and my info at the bottom should be changed to your info.
Once that's pasted and edited in the description, stay on that same page
Scroll down till you see an option to "add apps"
Click on it and type in "vizzlie"
Click on the app that pops up and then wait for it to load and then click "add" (sometimes this part takes a minute to load. It's okay. You might have to click add apps again and then it'll come up like it should)
After this scroll down till you see the save button and make sure to save the changes before moving on.
