tupperware sales

Postby tea4two » Tue, 06 Feb 2007 8:10 pm

Just curious, is tupperware sales prevalent in Spore?
It is, at least, in France!
How to get into it and how to approach people to hold a Tupperware party? I mean, do Singaporeans actually hold a Tupperware party at home? In my impression, Singapore a very much introvert, correct me if i am wrong.

vandal,

It is the kind of party where people just be merry. Tupperware Party started back in the 60s (if i'm not wrong) for housewives to earn a small income through organising parties to sell Tupperware boxes (lunch boxes, water bottles, conservation boxes etc). It was very popular back then as it coincided with the woman's right movement where women fought for freedom in public and private sphere, and not to mention financial independence.

It is quite possible that it can be arranged within the expat community, although one would need, to start digging out statistics, and to make it even more successful, why not start weight watchers club too! Just a thought!

Where people can meet up for socialising and gossip for an hour or two a couple of times a week. There is a need, especially with all these overweight office workers.

The tuppeware was quite a success story in UK, although it was more of a pastime for bored house wives. Isn't it multi level marketing? I'm not sure myself and too lazy to be interested.

But yes for a home worker, it's possible, you can also take other products also like sexy underware, jewellery and fashion clothing to enrich the experience, don't forget my vinegar cocktails and sandwiches!

AdamC are you taking notice, all these ladies need is a place to hold it each week, and a PR manager with well designed fashion... who knows it maybe a new trend.

1. Suss out the demographics on expats
2. Chose your target market based on income levels
3. How do you reach them and is there demand for what you are wishing to provide, what is it you are providing a social grp experience, party planning, be specific of the benefits.
4. Check out any threats to the operation, legal aspects and technical hindrances.
5. Crunch the numbers, to see if its feasible and go for it or forget it!

Business plan and monitoring controls. The venue may want or need to be rotated, to maintain interest, and opportuity for new area membership.

The forum here being a very good focal point, to get you all together! and pass the word around. Find a suitable time, that many with interest can turn up, (although are men allowed, my ex always used to throw me out, because it was womens talk) :oops:

I Think it's needs some research, collect expat data, ask embassies maybe to send a flyer out to all, there registered contacts, or alternative methods, through American Clubs, Brit Clubs and anyother clubs, If you can get people interested in a social event, too meet and discuss, certain goods, that are useful to the home or family, then it may work.

It is actually the preparation of the event, and the experience you can deliver, that makes it all worth while. There are some quite interesting home businesses available, like knitting,

The supplier gives you the wool and you knit jumpers, I recall a Scotish Company doing it years ago, one of my girlfriends at the time used to knit while watching TV, 25 pound a jumper if i'm not mistaken, normally 4 to 6 hrs work, and they where sold off a silly prices, down in London.

However tupperware, i believe paid out in goods, and not cash! I think only area supervisors made cash. although it seems like a hundred years ago, and my memory isn't that good these days.

:evil: I am wonder how can a business like MLM, Insurance adviser, property agent advertised in the ads call themselves as ENTREPRENEUR, If you want to be entrepreneur join us... :???: They are misleading to some pples.... :cry: :cry: :cry:

:roll: In my view , entrepreneur is your ownself create your own products or you set up your own company ... :mrgreen: :mrgreen: that call ENTREPRENEUR... :wink:
