Usborne Books - the Books Kids Love To Read

Definitely order the Educational Consultants Guide. I have have mine for about six months. I take a lot of time getting to know the program before jumping right in. I feel more confident and scure in that side of the business and am ready to jump in now. I know some consultants that get started the week after they get their kit, so it's just a personal preference.
I would write a letter to the schools you are inetersted in servicing. Make it short, introduce yourself and tell them that you will be calling them in the next week or so to set up a time to meet with them. If you know any teachers and or parents from the school I would drop their names as well in the letter, make sure you get their permission first though!
Congrats to everyone and good luck! Here's to a great year!

Yeah!!!! I just made my first sale to a friend of mind looking for last minute birthday present. I even wrapped it for her. :) I'm hoping she'll also be first home show and recruit. We've been talking about it, but I'm taking baby steps to be sure I have a good foundation.
By the way, has anyone else heard anything regarding the new name...Usborne Books and More?

I think letters are a good way to go. If you become an educational consultant and order the educational consultant guide, that will give you instructions on how to approach the schools, etc. I am very interested in doing this, but have not yet purchased the educational kit. You also have to make sure that there isn't a consultant already servicing the particular school you are approaching.

Hi Nikki and Marci,
I ABSOULTELY love Usborne Books and my daughters who are 3 1/2 and 2 love them. The books are very unique and colorful illustrated. Also, the words/sentences are very clear and simple for children when it comes to reading. My oldest daughter's reading level is unbelievable and her preschool teacher keeps telling me that she is in awe of my daughter's reading level. I believe these books can help children' reading levels.
I am deaf myself and I am kinda of having a hard time attracting customers/potential clients. I am also starting to gather a list of schools where I can go and see if they are interested in setting up book fairs. Do you think writing a letter/email would help?

HI. I just started this past September and I'm loving it! My kids love the books and I'm making a little money. I'm just getting started. With past experiences with other direct sales companies, I'm finding out that sometimes it takes a while to really make $$, but I'm open to suggestions. I love the fact that I can get free books!!! Who wouldn't love that?? I plan on sticking with this one over the long term. I've been with Creative Memories, PartyLite, and AVon in the past and ended up spending more than I earned, but with UBAH I am finding that it's very easy to earn money and free books. I need to get my name out there more so that people in my community know what I do. The thing I like best about Usborne is that they promote literacy by selling the best books around. My daughter is almost two and the books she goes for the most are her Usborne books. She practically shoves them in my face when she wants me to read them to her!
