Chez Ami Review imageWelcome to my Chez Ami Review!

Patsy Aiken Designs is a family-owned business that provides their customers with the ability to shop for children’s apparel at the home of a friend.  Chez Ami is the Multi-Level Marketing (MLM) Home Business aspect of Patsy Aiken Designs, and consists of a large network of Sales Consultants who earn compensation as they sell Patsy Aiken Designs clothing items.

In this Chez Ami Review, I will be reviewing their company, and more importantly, the MLM Business Opportunity that they offer as a Chez Ami Sales Consultant.  Does Chez Ami offer a legitimate MLM business opportunity, or is this a scam or pyramid scheme?  This is my unbiased Chez Ami Review.

Company Details & History

Chez Ami Logo imageThe Patsy Aiken Designs story begins in 1979 in Coronado, California, where Patsy’s husband Joel Aiken was stationed as a Naval Aviator.  Her business of Patsy Aiken Designs was founded when she was selling her designs to a local children’s boutique.  After Joel’s Naval Service came to an end, he joined Patsy to run their company together.

Over 30 years later, Patsy Aiken Designs is now based out of Raleigh, North Carolina.  While their products were once sold exclusively in upscale department stores and malls, their collections are now sold through their large network of Sales Consultants through the means of Chez Ami Home Parties.

MLM Business – How it all works

Chez Ami Sales Consultants earn commissions for every product that they sell.  In addition to that, they will earn bonuses that are based upon their personal sales production.  They also enjoy a 40% discount on all Chez Ami Merchandise.

The cost of getting started

The cost to become a Chez Ami Sales Consultant is a Seasonal Commitment Fee of $50 each season.  As a Chez Ami Sales Consultant, you will participate in two selling seasons each year:

  • Spring/Summer
  • Fall/Holiday

This $50 Seasonal Commitment Fee will provide you with a free replicated website, sales support materials, and a beautiful sample line to display in your Home Parties.

In addition to earning commissions on your Home Party orders during these two selling seasons, Sales Consultants have the ability to earn commissions year-round on orders that are placed through your replicated website, Chez Ami Customer Service, or directly through you.

Sales Consultant Training & Support

As a brand new Sales Consultant, Chez Ami will pair you with a more experienced Sales Consultant, who will act as your support line to mentor you through your first selling season.

Building a business through Home Parties

We have touched on this already, but the majority of your sales will be generated through Chez Ami Home Parties.  These parties are conducted in the homes of your friends, family members, acquaintances, co-workers etc.

Through these Home Parties, guests view beautiful samples from their entire collection while enjoying the company of their friends and loved ones.  You will contact your friends and family members to schedule a Chez Ami Party in their home.

Hostess Rewards Program

As an incentive for your friends and family members to host a party of their own, Chez Ami offers a Hostess Rewards Program.  Through this program, Party Hosts will earn a free merchandise credit totaling 10% of the sales that you generate in their home.

You will offer this incentive as you are contacting your friends and family members to schedule your Chez Ami Home Parties.  These Warm Marketing methods will be the basis of your new Sales Consultant training.

Chez Ami Review Conclusion

In my opinion, Chez Ami By Patsy Aiken Designs is a legitimate business who has been offering high-quality children’s apparel for more than 30 years.  Their designs have been highly praised by many, providing their Sales Consultants will high-quality collections that feature whimsical fabrics and unique patterns to promote and distribute to their customers.

Setting the correct expectations…

It is important to consider the challenges associated with building a business that is dependent upon your warm market of friends and family members in a Home Party setting.  As long as you begin your business with the correct expectations, and are willing to put in the time and effort that this business will require, you can achieve success within Chez Ami.

If you possess the desire to build a business through Home Parties, I believe that Chez Ami By Patsy Aiken Designs offers a solid business opportunity with products in high-demand and top-notch quality.
