General:

Tupperware is the name of a home products line that includes preparation, storage, and serving products for the kitchen and home, which were first introduced in 1946.

Tupperware develops, manufactures, and internationally distributes its products by its parent company Tupperware Brands Corporation and it is marketed by means of direct sales through a sales force of approximately 1.9 million consultants.

Tupperware is sold in roughly 100 countries. The top eleven consumers of Tupperware are:

Germany, USA, France, Mexico, Russia, Australia/New Zealand, Italy, Austria, South Africa, Japan, and India.

Business Model:
Tupperware is still sold mostly by means of parties, with rewards for hosts. A Tupperware party is organized by a Tupperware consultant for a host who invites friends and neighbors into their homes to take a look at the product line. The hosts not only qualifies for credit towards purchases, but are also rewarded with free products based on the level of sales made at their party.

To become a Tupperware Consultant, you must signup with another Tupperware Consultant. Then, you are have two selections on how you want to start your business. There is the option to purchase the Executive Business Kit for $119.99 or you can purchase the Business Kit for $79.99.

Tupperware Consultants are not encouraged to keep inventory, but there is a push for consultants to participate in "sampling". New Tupperware products are featured each season and consultants are given the chance to buy these items at 35% discount, which is then counted towards your personal sales.

At first, the money earned is mostly through the sale of Tupperware products. Overtime, after you have developed a team of Tuppeware Consultants, you will earn much more, based on the performance of your downline. You also have the opportunity to win trips, diamonds, cars, and cash bonuses. As mentioned earlier, one of the additional rewards is a car. Tupperware has a program called, Dream Drivers Program, that offers to those who qualify, the use of a company car with no payments and no insurance premiums.

Tupperware Consultant Training:
There are training courses to attend regularly and part of your training will be to learn about the various new products and promotions that are coming out.

There are also training courses via conference calls and weekly meetings, during which some selling ideas are presented. There is training offered online in the Tupperware sales support website, but this is up to the consultant to seek the online help.

Recruiting:
There is definitely a push for Tupperware recruiting. Tupperware constantly provides spotlight on its "Royalty" sales force members. Managers, DIQs, and Directors are referred to as "Royalty". You do not earn commissions, you earn "royalties". Tupperware has started recruiting the Hispanic population and has even added a whole "Hispanic Recruiting" section on its training site.

How Much Can A Tupperware Consultant Earn?
A party in the U.S. costs around $400.00. A Tupperware Consultant can earn $100-$150 for a party that lasts 90 minutes. If a consultant has a sales organization, he or she can earn $50,000-$70,000 a year, and some , who build their own sales organization, are making over $1 million. 

Conclusion:
There are no requirements to becoming a Tupperware Consultant. You just need only to believe in the products and sell them. You manage your own business and you can choose to work full-time or part-time.

Overall, the company seemingly is open for anyone to join. The success rate was not mentioned, but I assume that if you have a lot of close friends and family, know a lot of people, or are just good at sales, you can do well in this business.

For those who don't have a large group of friends or family, and you are not good at sales, you have two choices. Either be willing to learn how to sale or find another opportunity. I don't think the trainings are going to teach you how to approach people and make a sale. The training focuses primarily on learning about the products and how to host a party. There may be some other trainings offered, but I didn't see anything else mentioned.

For those who don't have the large group of friends or family and who don't want to do any selling, there is another alternative; a marketing system. A marketing system offers trainings on using the internet to market your business. In addition, a marketing system provides a sales funnel that would allow a Tupperware Consultant to generate income while he or she is learning the various online marketing strategies. This means, no more staying broke while building a Tupperware home business. This would also lessen the impact of having to pay the $400 for a party to market your Tupperware products. A marketing system can provide the income needed to not only support your internet marketing, but it could help pay for other items necessary to building a Tupperware business.

After other network marketers completed reading Lawren Smith's article written on Tupperware Consultants, many decided, with hopes of achieving success in their businesses, to visit her site, Guide2MLMLeadsGeneration. When you visit the site, you will have the opportunity to gain access to $494 in training bonuses, without spending a dime.
