Pinehurst, NC (PRWEB) July 9, 2008
The Gap Creek Candle Company introduces a versatile and affordable Direct Sales and Home Party Program that lets participants sell the company's exceptionally scented candles in either a home-party setting or to individuals in their social and professional networks.
Ideal for the current economic climate wherein so many individuals are seeking supplementary income, the program now offers a range of options to minimize start-up costs, with sales kits starting as low as $35, yet still featuring all the materials needed for successful selling. The company will also offer "free kit" promotions on select occasions throughout the year.
What's unique about the Gap Creek Candle Co. program is that it is not a multi-level marketing program. Rather, the program offers individuals--acting as independent sales consultants--a means to earn extra cash income by selling the company's exceptionally scented candles to friends, family, neighbors, colleagues, etc. and realize a 100%-plus cash profit potential.
"Unlike so many other direct-sales programs, our program follows a very simple approach that results in the consultant earning dollars, not product credit or prizes," says Tony Grausso, president, Gap Creek Candle Company. "This is important to us, and to the participating consultants.
"Participants do not recruit hostesses," adds Grausso. "Participants do not recruit and manage other program consultants. They simply host an event and/or sell directly through their social and professional contacts, as they wish."
With the Gap Creek program, consultants receive a sales kit that consists of 3, 12, or 24 seasonally appropriate candles from the company's Original Collection of 12-ounce jar candles, and all of the sales materials needed for successful selling. Cost of the kits range from $35 to $150. The consultant, of course, can also choose to sell the "sample candles" as part of her program, recovering the initial start-up costs.
"The popularity of scented candles, in general, and the exceptional quality and value of the Gap Creek product will no doubt make our versatile Direct Sales and Home Party Program particularly appealing, and ideal for our current economic conditions, where so many folks are wanting and needing additional income," says Grausso.
The program is designed for continual year-round selling, offering two collections of scents: one for Spring - Summer and another for Fall - Winter.
Scents in the current Fall - Winter collection are: Apple & Pear; Basil & Mandarin; Balsam & Cedar; Bergamot; Bayberry; Christmas Tree; Cinnamon Spice; Cotton Blossoms; Cranberry Chutney; Gingerbread; Harvest Time; Lavender & Chamomile; Lemongrass Sage; Mandarin Cranberry; Mistletoe Memories; Mocha Java; Orchid & Sage; Pear & Vanilla; Pound Cake; Pumpkin Crunch; Verbena Citron; Warm Apple Crisp; White Birch; Yuletide.
Founded in 2003, Gap Creek Candle Company handcrafts its products in Biscoe, North Carolina, offering three lines of scented candles in more than 70 popular fragrances. The company offers candles for wholesale and fundraising, in addition to direct sales.
