FAQ’s About Joining

Love books and care about children?  Then you can be successful at this!  You have award winning product line, multiple marketing avenues, supportive Team Leader & upline Leaders, helpful home office & above average compensation plan.  You will find many more benefits as you go!

You may sign up to make extra income with a flexible schedule, or to build a major income to give your family financial security.  Want to get the books for your family & friends? That’s okay too.  Once a Consultant, you get the benefits of being a Consultant forever!   We are a family friendly business that helps moms earn income, while helping kids have FUN learning.

The potential for growth is huge.  Our market is every family with children, every school or organization that serves children across the USA.  We aim to get great books into the hands of as many kids as possible. You earn commission on your sales, and also from your group’s sales as you help others build their businesses.  There is no limit to the number of Consultants and Team Leaders you have in your group.  We do well by helping others do well!

You bet. Sales people are hired to sell an employer’s product in return for a paycheck. Here, you’re an independent Consultant who represents a product you love. We don’t have to “sell” as much as simply share the features and benefits of great books and coordinate the programs that help families, schools and organizations acquire our books.

Do you care about children and books? Can you see yourself sharing information about quality literacy programs and award winning titles? Then you can be a successful Usborne Consultant.

I dealt with this same feeling early in my business. The only thing I had ever sold was Girl Scout Cookies. ?  Since we are presenting books we love, we can keep the focus on helping our customers find great books.  We don’t have to be the center of attention – Usborne Books are!  People love these books. Our job is getting them in front of people & providing our clients with personalized customer service, so they get the perfect books for the kids they love.

We have many ways to market Usborne Books and More…

Bookfairs – for preschools, daycare centers, hospitals, corporations, learning resource centers, etc.

Internet sales – through the complete online ordering sites available from our home office.  This includes direct ordering, e-shows, and e-fairs.

Sales to schools and libraries – Extra training and certification is required to serve the school and library market.

Literacy for a Lifetime – this is our 50% matching funds program helping schools and organizations make their grants and donated funds for books stretch even further.

Cards for a Cause – this is our fundraising program which features a selection of lovely hand embellished greeting cards and profits 43% for hosting organizations.

There are just around 20,000 active Usborne Consultants in the entire United States so far.  Lots of room!  You can help build Usborne into a household name.
Some of our books are found in retail stores – primarily upscale book stores, science & museum shops – which helps our name recognition and proves our reputation as top quality books.  Only the Home Business Division (that’s us!) has access to the full line, as well as the hostess free books, book fair benefits, our personalized customer service, and discounted customer specials.
Our books range from $3.99 to $49.99, averaging around $8.99. Books are printed on acid free paper with three types of bindings: paperback, hardback, and library binding.  Great prices AND great quality!  Our generous hostess program helps average families easily earn $100 to $200 in free books too.
The marketing plan is in place for you to earn as much as you desire. This is not a “get rich quick” scheme, it is a business and we all work here to be successful.  Most Directors in the company earn 6 figures.  Team Leaders average a few 1000 a month.  Career level income takes some business building, so you’ll want to promote to Team Leader soon if you want to make career level income sooner rather than later.  Unlike many careers which require expensive training, you can begin earning income from the first day you start on your Usborne career.

Commission for Home Parties and Facebook Parties (AKA Book Looks), at 25%, is easy to figure:
$400 in sales = $100 in profit for you. Sales bonus and recruiting bonus, plus monthly challenges and Write Your Own Success awards, are in addition to commission.

An example of a good month for a Consultant could be – two parties/book looks per week averaging $400 in sales each,  Your 4% recruiting bonus can add up significantly.  Then when you promote to Team Leader, you would get an additional $302 override on your personal sales, plus up to 11% of all net sales your group is making.

Potential is limited only by what you do.

You earn income starting with your very first order.   Commission ranges from 17 to 30% depending on the type of sale.  In addition to your commission, you can build your business, adding 4% Recruiting Bonus, 3-5% Sales Bonus, and up to 11% Team Leader override checks.

Training for this certification is being updated currently and is not available. Watch this space for updates in September 2017.
Direct deposits are made every Wednesday for sales posted the previous week. When you are a Team Leader, your monthly override is direct deposited by the 10th each month.
Yes.  Much of my group is long distance. We have so many great tools to use:

We have weekly Facebook Team Time training events and videos resources so you can train on specific topics at your convenience.

The consultant manual is a user-friendly, step by step guide.

We have a Consultant Training web site.   We are part of one of the top groups in the country for long distance training.

The company sends out weekly updates via email and important daily notices are posted on the back office messenger.

I’m available by text, phone, messenger etc.  I’m here for ya!

Nope, not unless you want to.  The starter kit comes with lots of wonderful titles in a good range of ages and interests, plus you have enough supplies to take care of your first events.  Use these books as your samples to show for people to see the quality, format & variety.  Your customers will order from the catalog.  You can build up your personal collection of books with all you earn through your “Write Your Own Success Story” awards (that’s up to $150 in books right there!)
Your website is active on your sign up date too. After the first 6 months, your website is $50 per year to renew, as long as you’d like to keep it.

After your first 6 months, Basic OrderPro Online is just $1.30 per month. You want to have access to it after your 1st free 6 months. This makes ordering quick & easy.
