Experience the Best
|What an incredible business which values children and education! Usborne Books
& More is a solid, stable company with a product I believe in. This business allows
me to have a flexible work schedule around the needs of my family. Having a
home-based business has given our children great exposure to real world
business with books they love. We have earned several incredible vacations
through Usborne. One of the things I like best about this business is helping
others reach their goals. Everyone has the opportunity to be successful at all
levels. By promoting literacy you can make a difference for yourself, your family
and your community.

What Does a Consultant Do?
Consultants get off to a great start with fun and informal Home Shows! All it
takes is sending out a few invitations, greeting the friends and family of your
hostess and displaying these amazing books! After demonstrating their unique
qualities and educational value, sit back and watch our books capture the
imagination and hearts of each guest.
Sales Channels Available to Every Usborne Consultant
Home Shows School and Library Direct Sales
Reach For the Stars!!, a Pledge-Based Reading Incentive Program
Book Fairs Literacy for a Lifetime, a Matching Grant Program
How Much Does a Consultant Make?
Your monthly income is directly correlated to how much time you invest in
growing your business. A new consultant averages $75-$125 in commission per home show as
shown in the chart listed below. Multiply that by the number of days you are
willing to work per month for a good estimate of your income.
You earn 25% commission on a home show for investing a couple of hours with
other adults, helping them find the right books for their children.
Sell $350 net and earn a 3% bonus on your personal monthly sales. You
also earn a 4% bonus on your personal recruit's net sales.
Extra Income for Sharing This Business!
Recruiting is another profitable feature of your Usborne Business. As you recruit,
train and support new teammates, you receive additional income based on their
sales. There are no territories for recruiting consultants so you can sign up
friends and family from around the country as soon as you join Usborne Books & More!
