One of the most exciting things about the Usborne Books & More business opportunity is its flexibility and limitless opportunity. You are only constrained by your own time, goals and desires. There are so many ways to reach families - you can easily find many markets in which you will feel comfortable representing this outstanding line of books!
So if you're wondering where you would sell Usborne Books, read through the following list and find the options that would best suit you!
Home Shows (Home Parties)
Home shows are an excellent way to reach many families at one time, while helping the hostess build her personal home library. A typical show consists of a brief introduction of the books as well as selected features. You highlight the books you like, leaving lots of time for customers to browse the books you bring as well as the Usborne catalog. Home shows are easy and profitable!
There are many groups designed to help support mothers and families which are full of people who love good books for their children. Examples include local play groups, babysitting co-ops, organizations like Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS), Mothers of Twins, La Leche, etc.
Craft and Holiday Fairs and Festivals / Community Days
Throughout the year, there are many opportunities to show off our wonderful Usborne Books. Childrens festivals, holiday fairs, craft shows, community days are just a few examples. These are not only an opportunity for sales, but they are also a great way to get leads for home shows and others who would like to sell books.
Company and Club Book fairs and/or Fundraisers
Companies and clubs can contribute to their community by hosting book fairs for their employees and donating the free products or cash to local schools or charities of their choice.
Homeschool meetings, Conventions and Curriculum Fairs
Homeschoolers love our books. They are always on the lookout for creative educational materials.
Catalog Shows and Direct Sales
Anyone collecting more than $85 in retail sales is eligible for the benefits of hosting a home show. Some people may want to collect orders instead of having a presentation in their home. People can also place a "direct sale" order with you at anytime, for any amount.
Preschools and Daycares
Preschools and Daycares can get up to 50% of their sales in free books by having a book fair. Parents enjoy the convenience and their children benefit at home and school. Our EZ Book Fair program for preschools allows you to take orders using wish lists with the children - no need for you to stock an inventory of books.
Online Store Shopping Cart Website
The company makes available to all consultants an "online store" website service that has a full online catalog and secure shopping cart. Your starter kit comes with a 6-month website - after that, it is renewable for just $50 per year! The website is a great business tool and allows you to set up e-shows and e-book fairs.
