The Key to Crushing It as a Tupperware Sales Rep


Hey, future Tupperware stars! Excited to dive into the thrilling world of Tupperware sales? Imagine creating your own empire with airtight, stackable, and stylish food storage solutions. Get ready, because I’m here to share the secrets that can help you rise to the top as a Tupperware titan, the ultimate cling wrap queen, or even an emperor of everything sealable and microwavable!

The Power of the Tupperware Party

First things first, let’s talk about the lifeblood of any successful Tupperware biz: the infamous Tupperware party. These gatherings are like the Super Bowl of food storage, the Coachella of container sales, the Met Gala of meal prep. And if you want to crush it as a Tupperware rep, you better know how to throw a party that would make even Martha Stewart green with envy.

Here are a few tips for throwing a Tupperware shindig that will have your guests clamoring for more (containers, that is):

  • Set the mood with some tasteful Tupperware-themed decorations. Think: streamers made from Ziploc bags, a punch bowl filled with colorful plastic lids, and a giant inflatable Tupperware container in the front yard (for that extra “wow” factor).
  • Provide plenty of snacks and drinks, all served in (you guessed it) Tupperware containers. Bonus points if you can figure out a way to make Jell-O shots in a Tupperware shape.
  • Offer fun party games and activities, like “Pin the Lid on the Tupperware,” “Tupperware Twister,” or “Guess How Many Grapes Can Fit in This Tiny Container.” The more creative (and mildly inappropriate), the better.
  • And of course, don’t forget to give a rousing speech about the life-changing magic of Tupperware. Regale your guests with tales of produce prolonged, leftovers saved, and pantries organized to perfection. Make them believe that their lives will never be complete without a full set of Tupperware in every size, shape, and color.

The Art of the Tupperware Upsell

Now, once you’ve got your guests hooked on the Tupperware lifestyle (and slightly tipsy from all those Jell-O shots), it’s time to unleash your secret weapon: the upsell. This is where you convince your unsuspecting victims ahem valued customers that they absolutely NEED that deluxe Tupperware set with the extra-large containers and the limited-edition lids.

You’ll need to leverage all your sales skills, charm, and maybe a little bit of mild hypnosis to pull this off. But don’t worry, I’ve got your back.

Here are some surefire phrases to help you close that upsell:

  • “I know it seems a bit pricey, but can you really put a price on the peace of mind that comes with knowing your leftovers are safe, secure, and stylishly stored?”
  • “Think of it as an investment in your future – a future filled with perfectly preserved produce and enviously organized cabinets.”
  • “These limited-edition lids are flying off the shelves faster than hotcakes at a lumberjack convention. You wouldn’t want to miss out on this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, would you?”

Remember: the key to a successful upsell is confidence, persistence, and a willingness to stretch the truth just a smidge. Just keep your eye on the prize (and the commission check) and you’ll be swimming in Tupperware sales in no time.

Mastering the Tupperware Lingo

Alright, now that you’ve got the party-throwing and upselling down pat, it’s time to take your Tupperware game to the next level by mastering the lingo. Just like any exclusive club, the world of Tupperware has its own secret language – a code that separates the true Tupperware titans from the plastic pretenders.

Here’s a crash course in Tupperware-speak:

  • “Burping” – No, we’re not talking about that unseemly bodily function. In Tupperware land, “burping” refers to the act of pressing down on a container’s lid to release excess air and create an airtight seal. It’s like giving your leftovers a little love tap to keep them fresh.
  • “Modular Mates” – This isn’t some kind of trendy Tupperware dating app. Modular Mates are a specific line of Tupperware containers that are designed to stack and nest together for maximum space efficiency. They’re like the Lego blocks of the food storage world.
  • “FridgeSmart” – No, this isn’t some kind of high-tech, sentient refrigerator. FridgeSmart is a line of Tupperware containers with special vents that help regulate air flow and keep produce fresher for longer. It’s like giving your fruits and veggies their own little spa day.
  • “Confidence Becomes You” – This is the official Tupperware motto, and it’s not just some empty corporate jargon. As a Tupperware rep, you need to embody this phrase in everything you do. Confidence is key when you’re trying to convince people to buy overpriced plastic containers (and rock those fabulous Tupperware-themed outfits).

By mastering the Tupperware lingo and dropping these terms into casual conversation (whether they’re relevant or not), you’ll show your customers that you’re not just some basic container slinger – you’re a true Tupperware authority, a keeper of the plastic faith.

The Tupperware Dress Code (Yes, It’s a Thing)

I know what you’re thinking: “What’s the dress code for a Tupperware rep? Anything goes as long as it’s made of plastic wrap?” Oh, you sweet, naive little Tupperware tadpole. There’s a strict (and frankly, slightly terrifying) dress code that all Tupperware reps must adhere to.

Think: matching polyester pantsuits in bold primary colors, sensible shoes with a slight Tupperware logo on the heel, and (of course) a variety of Tupperware-themed accessories like earrings, brooches, and (for the truly daring) a Tupperware fanny pack.

Here are a few fashion tips to help you stand out (in a good way) at your next Tupperware soiree:

  • Coordinate your outfit with your Tupperware collection. Wearing a red pantsuit? Break out those limited-edition red lids for a monochromatic look that says “I’m not just selling Tupperware, I am Tupperware.”
  • Don’t be afraid to mix and match your Tupperware accessories. A FridgeSmart brooch paired with some Modular Mates earrings? Now that’s a power combo.
  • When in doubt, just wear more Tupperware. A Tupperware hat, a Tupperware scarf, Tupperware-themed socks – there’s no such thing as “too much” when it comes to expressing your love for all things plastic and airtight.

Just remember: as a Tupperware rep, you’re not just selling a product – you’re selling a lifestyle. And that lifestyle apparently involves dressing like a walking, talking Tupperware catalog. Embrace it with confidence (remember the motto!) and your customers will be begging to buy whatever you’re selling.

The Competitive World of Tupperware

Now, I know it might seem like the world of Tupperware is all sunshine, rainbows, and perfectly preserved produce. But don’t be fooled – beneath that shiny plastic exterior lies a cutthroat world of ruthless competition and Machiavellian mind games.

That’s right, your fellow Tupperware reps are not your friends (unless they’re helping you move up the ranks in your multi-level marketing scheme). They are your rivals, your nemeses, your arch-enemies in the battle for plastic container dominance.

To help you navigate this treacherous landscape, here are a few tips for outselling, out-charming, and out-Tupperwaring your competition:

  • Always be one step ahead. If your rival is planning a Hawaiian-themed Tupperware party, you better be throwing a full-on Tupperware luau, complete with plastic-wrapped pig roast and Modular Mate tiki torches.
  • Don’t be afraid to play dirty. Steal their party themes, poach their customers, and “accidentally” spill your famous Tupperware-shaped Jell-O shots all over their carefully curated product display.
  • Employ psychological warfare. Casually mention how your rival’s Tupperware collection is looking a little “tired” and “outdated” compared to your shiny new limited-edition sets. Plant seeds of doubt in their customers’ minds and watch as they slowly drift over to your side of the Tupperware force.

Remember: in the world of Tupperware sales, there can only be one supreme ruler of the plastic kingdom. And that ruler should be you, dammit. So put on your game face (and your Tupperware fanny pack) and get ready to fight dirty.

The Tupperware Tattoo: A Mark of True Dedication

Alright, folks, we’ve reached the final frontier of Tupperware obsession: the Tupperware tattoo. This is not for the faint of heart (or the easily embarrassed). A Tupperware tattoo is a permanent declaration of your love, devotion, and unhealthy fixation on all things plastic and airtight.

Now, I’m not saying you have to get a Tupperware tattoo to be a successful rep. But I am saying that it will definitely set you apart from your competition and show your customers that you’re not just in this for the money (even though you totally are).

Here are a few ideas for Tupperware tattoos that will make you the talk of the Tupperware town:

  • A full-sleeve tattoo depicting the entire Tupperware product lineup, from the humble sandwich keeper to the mighty Modular Mate.
  • A tramp stamp that reads “Sealed for Freshness” in a stylish Tupperware-esque font.
  • A tattoo of the Tupperware logo on your bicep, so you can flex your love for plastic containers at every opportunity.
  • A full-back tattoo of the Tupperware motto, “Confidence Becomes You,” to remind yourself (and everyone behind you) of your unwavering dedication to the cause.

Of course, getting a Tupperware tattoo is not without its risks. You might face judgement, ridicule, and the occasional “What the hell were you thinking?” from friends and family members. But just remember: those haters are just jealous of your passion, your commitment, and your killer Tupperware collection.

So wear that Tupperware tattoo with pride, my friends. It’s a badge of honor in the wild and wacky world of plastic container sales.

The Final Seal

Congratulations, my dear Tupperware warriors. You’ve made it through the gauntlet of Tupperware sales secrets and emerged victorious (and slightly unhinged). By now, you should be well-equipped to take on the world of Tupperware and build your very own plastic empire.

Just remember the key tenets of Tupperware success:

  1. Throw parties that are equal parts fun, informative, and mildly cultish.
  2. Master the art of the upsell and convince your customers that they need Tupperware like they need air.
  3. Learn the lingo and use it to assert your dominance as a true Tupperware authority.
  4. Dress the part, even if that means sacrificing your dignity and personal style.
  5. Crush your competition with mind games, dirty tricks, and aggressive Jell-O shot spills.
  6. Consider getting a Tupperware tattoo to prove your undying love for all things plastic and stackable.

Follow these steps, and I guarantee you’ll be swimming in Tupperware sales (and questionable fashion choices) in no time. Just don’t come crying to me when your friends start avoiding your calls and your family stages a Tupperware intervention. That’s the price of success, baby.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have a limited-edition Tupperware fanny pack to bedazzle and a rival rep’s Hawaiian-themed party to sabotage. The Tupperware hustle never stops.

Happy selling, my plastic-loving pals! May your lids always fit snugly, and your commission checks always clear. Tupperware for life!
