Usborne Books review: children books surging MLM?
Usborne Books is a UK independent publisher of children�s books that are sold around the world by independent affiliates who earn commissions on the books they sell.
They�re not as big as Avon or Pampered Chef, but for an MLM company, they really couldn�t have a more innocent product with children�s books.
Usborne Books has been in the business of selling kids� books for more than three decades, so it�s pretty much an institution. It�s a brand with incredibly high levels of integrity, promoted by its founder and Managing Director, Peter Usborne.
Based in Oxon, England, Usborne Books is a member of the UK division of the Direct Selling Association. The USA wing is based in Tulsa, OK and is also a member of the DSA. The company has been in the US since 1989, and is called Usborne Books and More here.
In 2008, Usborne Books purchased Kane Miller Books, a competitor in the childrens� books market which had been around since 1984. Kane-Miller was known for international titles and multicultural themes, so this acquisition rounded out the titles offered by UBAM in a nice way.
The books sold through Usborne Books and More (UBAM) are of impeccable quality. There are also thousands of them, and many are exclusive to UBAM.
There are also titles in Spanish, ebooks, and books that coordinate with websites for a multi-media approach. There are up-sell opportunities like book collections to entice your customers with. Book lovers, especially kids, often find it hard to resist a collection.
Books are priced in the range of $4 to $50.
Besides traditional reading books, UBAM also sells sticker books, 3-D cut-out books, reading programs, and activity books.
Join by paying $69 plus tax, and receive a Mini New Consultant Kit. Go large and order the New Consultant Kit for $119 plus tax. Starter kits include books to sell, so it�s presumed you�ll get your kit money back pretty fast.
Consultants earn 25% to 30% commission on the books they sell to private individuals. In the UK, when they sell to schools or libraries, the commission rate is 20% rather than the normal 24% rate they get for selling to individuals. Organisers are not allowed to sell directly to book stores.
UK Organisers may start selling to schools and holding book fairs once they�ve proven their mettle by hosting at least six parties that earn at least $150. To support its Organisers, Usborne Books offers bulk discounts for school libraries and other libraries, as an incentive for buying from Usborne.
In the US, schools contact Usborne Books through their website to be connected with a consultant who deals in schools. To become this consultant, you have to purchase an Educational Consultant Kit in addition to the Business Kit.
Here are some features of the home based business opportunity:
Write Your Own Success Story: 12 weeks of rewards if you meet certain quotas
Business Development Program: earn free delivery and discounted books and take advantage of exclusive offers and events�all aimed at incentivizing the consultants.
Up, Up and Away (UK): for high earners, get paid-for trips to exotic locations.
Extra 5% Personal Sales Bonus if your sales reach $750 in a month
Earn 4% on the sales of your recruits when you sell at least $350 net, and 11% once you become a Team Leader.
Team Leader rank is achieved when you promote to Team Leader 3 people you�ve recruited and 3 active consultants, achieved $750 in personal sales 2 months in a row and $2,000 net for those same two months.
Commission depends on how you sold the books. Home parties ring in at 25% for a minimum of $85 in sales. Direct sales (again, minimum of $85) ratchet up your commission to 30% but sink to 25% if sales are between $25 and $85.
Book fairs require a minimum of $500 for 17% commission, and school & library sales will get you 17-25% with a minimum $25 in sales.
Consultants order a monthly kit, which includes new titles to sell. While home parties are encouraged, the idea is to get out there with your book kit and put books in the hands of parents and/or teachers. Uborne suggests the following venues for landing sales:
Distribute catalogs to busy friends and families, then collect them later, hopefully full of orders.
Set up at a book fair, which can be held by a daycare, preschool, home school group, or any organization. When you�re asking if you can organize a book fair, mention that the organization can earn up to 50% of sales in free books. That should help.
Sell through your UBAM personalized website.
Partner with businesses in the Literacy for a Lifetime program. This is a 50% matching grant to help support literacy organizations.
To encourage recruiting, Consultants may offer the following incentives to people who host an Usborne party:
Party hosts get 10% of total party sales value in free books.
Party hosts also get a free gift (Host Book)
Party hosts also get a book at 50% off for each future booking
Your Party hosts can get 20% of total party sales in free books during your first weeks as an Organiser
Mention that the average home party sale is $400
Customers pay Consultants, who then place the book order online. Organizers deduct their commission and pay the net value of the books, keeping the rest.
Override commissions are calculated monthly and paid via direct deposit to Consultant bank accounts.
There are a number of small charges involved too, such as credit card handling fees, extra handling fees for small orders (around $8), standard shipping charges, and a small fee for the party host benefits package.
Usborne Books and More has everything going for it, except high-ticket items. It�s a slog through hundreds of tiny book sales to make serious money or even think about working from home, but look on the bright side: there�s a huge market and people usually buy these things in bulk. Plus, you can sell to virtually anyone with kids�they don�t have to be rich, with prices starting at $4.
This company is sound, approved by schools, and totally so above board it seems absolutely nothing could go wrong by joining. Just make sure you have access to lots of parents. A lot of parents�
Could you make a few quick bucks with UB? Sure, it�s possible.
Is there a great long-term income potential with UB? Not really, if you�re doing it for the money.
There is a better way.
After reviewing well over 200 opportunities, here�s my #1 pick.
