We hope 2016 brings all of our wonderful Presenters happiness and prosperity in all of their pursuits. It’s going to be a fantastic year for Chocolate Adventure with our very first conference coming up in May. We have released our new 2016 Catalogue which has many new exciting products available and we hope to discover even more fantastic ideas so that our 2017 catalogue is bigger and better and offers more choices to your valuable customers.
2016 Catalogue Information
Our 2016 catalogue has created many comments both good and not so good regarding pricing. A new line – “Sweet As Bars” hits the jackpot. Our mark-up is consistent within our food products and includes many factors. We don’t have the negotiating power of the big retailers (the ability to screw little guys), and we’re kind of glad about this. Your guests will always pay a higher price than the big retailers, and hence we have included many products that are unavailable at major stores. We also include a small percentage to cover expected price rises from our suppliers as many consumables and transport costs will for sure increase during 2016 and our catalogue lasts a year, not a week. We may have made a mistake with “Sweet As” bars, and will rectify if we’re able to quickly in the new year. If the big chains do not include the bars in all stores nationally or raise their prices after the new release, we will keep our price as listed which will enable our Presenters to sell where they are not easily available – and earn more commission due to the higher price. We’ll keep all Presenters informed as we make decisions and why.
Most of you would now have your hands on our colourful new catalogues! Our wonderful product development specialist Trista has been negotiating with current suppliers over the last few months as well as sourcing new suppliers to secure top quality chocolate and confectionery at great prices. We’ve been focusing on bringing unique Australian made products to you at the best price we can so you can deliver these to your wonderful hosts and their guests.
If you are an active Presenter and you haven’t received your catalogues in the post please contact admin@chocolateadventure and we will update your details in our system 🙂
As a Party Plan Company, our main aim is to bring friends together to enjoy chocolate in an environment where everyone feels comfortable and can compare their favourite chocolates and lollies ☺ talk about life in general and taste test our delicious chocolate. We prefer it if your guests have lots of fun and laughter along the way too!!! With an abundance of variety in the new catalogue there are products to satisfy almost everyone’s tastes and great gift ideas too for those hard to buy for friends and family members.
Here at Chocolate Adventure head office we like to focus on brilliant customer service, the convenience of home delivery and delivering products and service as suggested throughout the year from customers and Presenters. We are always open to your suggestions, feedback and positive criticism, this way we can continually strive to make Chocolate Adventure the best Party Plan business in Australia. We want YOU to succeed and any information you can give us that will help us do that is very valuable information to us ☺
We have kept the delivery prices the same for 2016. The cost of freight is continually on the rise (as we all know) but we decided it was better to keep the cost steady which keeps it affordable for our Presenters, hosts and guests.
We’ve incorporated a few new product ideas into the 2016 Catalogue which we feel will boost your marketing capabilities to different guest groups. The lolly bars for kids birthdays parties are sure to be a topic of conversation among the Mums as they are products that you can’t buy anywhere else (it’s these chats that will help promote your business and get more hosts) and kids will LOVE them!!! Also we have the bonboniere options for engagements, weddings and wedding anniversaries.
Orders for all products and Catalogues can be made from midday on January 1. We may all be feeling a little tired and under the weather on New Years Day so hopefully we don’t get inundated with orders haha! Of course, as always, we will process them as quickly as humanly possible ☺
We hope you’ve all enjoyed wonderful Christmas celebrations with your family and friends.
It’s going to be a fantastic year!!!
Creating a reason for customers to come back
Do you find a lull in sales in certain times of the year, such as the start of a new year? Do you want to build up your customer loyalty and repeat ordering percentages? Why not offer a “bounce back” incentive. This can be a free bonus product, a percentage off or some other special offer. Print out your Bounce Back coupons/incentive information and include in each person’s order during a specific time period (perhaps November and December customers) to redeem during a particular week, month etc. (such as the first two weeks in January, Easter or Christmas when sales would otherwise be slower). Include these with every order that you receive and this will help encourage repeat ordering from what may have been a one-time customer and boost sales in particular slow periods.
