CHOCOLATE BUSINESS 

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 ☺


Happy Holidays

We hope you’ve all enjoyed wonderful Christmas celebrations with your family and friends. 

Stay safe over the holiday break and all the best for 2016

It’s going to be a fantastic year!!!


Chocad Tip

Bounce Back
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.

Chocad Tip

Pack your host kit for success in 2016

The host kit is a VERY important part of your business as a Presenter and a way to keep your host excited about her party, give her details on what you expect from her and maximize the party to be its very best!

Key elements for a successful Host Kit are:
Host letter – Thank the hostess for booking; let her know about ordering and party policies (cancellation etc) and instructions and guest list requirements.
Hostess program/benefits, guest list and catalogues.
Theme party descriptions – if you offer these.
Games you’ll be playing – Such as “how well do you know your chocolate” quiz or tic-tac-toe

Your business opportunity information – this is crucial as it’s your first recruiting seed with your hostess.
Your hosts are your #1 BEST potential recruit at a party!
You never want to overwhelm your host but you want to make sure that you have all the proper tools for your host in a nice neat packet to make it easier for her to host and she’ll tell all her friends how fun and easy it was to host a party with you!

News From Chocolate Adventure

We’re feeling a bit like elves – sacks of orders arriving, creating wonderful presents and yes, there’s a fair bit of jolly chaos. Major difference is we won’t be competing with reindeers for airspace on Christmas Eve. Startrack are operating all days apart from public holidays, so we expect all orders to find their homes long before the fat man starts ho ho ho(ing). A non-boring set of stats will be included in next week’s final business news for the year to let Presenters know how much we’ve grown during the last 12 months. This is naturally due to the fantastic effort by every Presenter. $30 orders through to $800 orders are all adding up to show that our crazy Chocolate Adventure might have legs.

Hope you stay jolly and cool (we’re repeating the cool bit) – Jay and Kay

Fair Dinkum!!!

Three MORE new exciting product additions for Chocolate Adventure’s 2016 ‘new look’ catalogue.

A sneak peak for Presenters only – keep it under wraps 😉

New Catalogue, New Start Up Kits, New Year…so much exciting news!!!

Along with the introduction of our exciting “new look” catalogue in 2016 we will also be changing the start up kits for new Presenters. Our prices will be increasing on these new kits in January 2016, however, we will be running the FREE KIT UPGRADE offer again in January to all new Presenters that sign up for the Chocolate Adventure of their life!!!

New mum’s kit!

Contact local hospitals and ask for the human resources department. The majority of hospitals hand out new mummy bags filled with products, samples and other useful items for new mums who’ve just had a baby (or babies!).  It’s FREE for you to add in a brochure and your business information! It is possible you’ll get an influx of party hosts, new customers and new recruits by participating in these types of programs.
What new Mum doesn’t need an energy hit after all that labouring effort?


December Promo

This Christmas season, Chocolate Adventure is giving away a 200g Bold ball trio to every host.
These delicious morsels are crunchy on the outside and filled with a delightful soft chocolate center – is your mouth watering?

So…Chocadv party hosts will now receive:

Our Chocolate Adventure gourmet gift box,
10% of party sales towards their order,
AND a bonus packet of bold ball trios.
