Share Article

Taste Trunk, a new company based in San Francisco, has introduced an innovative way to purchase food products online. Customers can earn side income or even start a business by recommending products and referring others to the online store.

Customers devoting a few hours per week can earn a few hundred dollars per month or more, while those working full-time can potentially earn into the six figures.

Taste Trunk is out to disrupt the supermarket industry by introducing a new way to discover and purchase food products online. Simply visit the website, sign up for the Culinary Team and begin earning commissions by promoting products and inviting friends.

Great new brands spring up constantly in the supermarket industry, however most never gain widespread attention. This is due to the inherent difficulties of placing small upstart brands into large supermarkets. Taste Trunk hopes to make a difference for these small players by going directly to the customer with hand-picked, premium products and encouraging word-of-mouth. When customers find things they like, they can earn commissions simply by spreading the word and inviting friends. In essence, the customer gets rewarded for contributing to the marketing effort.

The Taste Trunk online store gives customers a ton of options. Each product is hand-picked and tested by the purchasing team at Taste Trunk. Items vary from gourmet to healthy lifestyle and beyond. Brands range from small “mom-and-pops” to larger producers, all described as having “a bit of character” in their product lines. The common theme is quality, every item is worthy of a taste.

To begin earning commission, customers visit http://www.tastetrunk.com and complete the Culinary Team sign up form. All new users receive a personal checkout code once signed up. Once activated, customers begin earning commissions by generating sales on the checkout code and by inviting others to sign up. Checkout codes can be shared and used by anyone. As friends are referred to sign up, payouts increase. Customers devoting a few hours per week can earn a few hundred dollars per month or more, while those working full-time can potentially earn into the six figures.

As for the product recommendation process, Taste Trunk provides a number of ideas for helping customers spread the word, such as hosting dinner parties. Most people love discovering new products, but the limiting factor can be finding an easy way to do it. In essence the dinner party creates an avenue. It fosters a fun environment for trying new brands in person. Furthermore, customers can actually test new products before making a purchase.

Another avenue is social media. Taste Trunk encourages customers to spread the word about their favorite new products online. The company will even help Culinary Team members start their own cooking blogs to get recipe ideas and product recommendations going.

The virtues of the Taste Trunk business model also make it very compelling for the customer. By operating an online store only, Taste Trunk eliminates the need for certain overhead costs. Supermarkets for example not only require buildings, but parking lots, shelves, and staff just to operate. Taste Trunk on the other hand can save on many of these costs. Savings which are directed back to the customer as an incentive to help market products. The result is an online marketplace of specialty gourmet, health and household items not unlike an upscale supermarket. However in this case the customer is rewarded by actively participating in the process.

As for the products in the store, there is a wide assortment of hard-to-find items and premium brands. The Gourmet section includes everything from chocolates to oils, spreads and seasonings. The healthy section contains snacks, teas, organics and general healthy living items. Each item is handpicked with an emphasis on quality. The store will soon be expanding to include many more items in the areas of bath, body and household.
