Frequently Asked Questions

About the Usborne Home Business

1.    Is it expensive to get started?  No, there are usually two kits to choose from: $75 and $125.  Both kits have books that value more than the cost of the kit as well as supplies and a free e-commerce site.  This is always a great deal to start your own business!micewithbooks at usborne-books.com

2.  How much money can I earn?  That depends on how much you want to work.  You can easily make at least $60-$75 for an average home show .  Book fairs and direct sales vary.  With no territories, you are able to sell to friends, family, teachers, parents, grandparents, schools, preschools, and libraries anywhere in the country! The opportunities are endless!  

3.  What training do I need?   The company provides you with a detailed manual that will get you started.  We will also help you.  It's not rocket science, but it can be a little confusing in the beginning.  We are only a phone call or email away.  There are area meetings, as well as, regional and national training sessions which are recommended to you, but are not required. We also do teleconference and web-based training. No degrees are required - just a love of books!

4.  Can I work part-time?  YES!  Usborne Books encourages people to work alongside their families or current jobs.  You can work as much or as little as you wish, but there is obviously an advantage to working at least several hours a week.

5.  Can I order books at a discount? YES!  You can buy books wholesale at a 25% discount, and even greater discounts are available if you order during special offers (up to 75% off!).

6.  Is Usborne Books at Home a known and stable company?  Yes. We are listed in Forbes Top 200 Small Businesses and are a member of the Direct Selling Association.  Our company stock is traded on the Nasdaq under symbol EDUC.

7.   Is there a sales minimum I must maintain?  There are no quotas or minimum sales required of consultants.  Obviously, the more you sell, the more extra money and discounted books you will receive and the faster you will build a team of people to work with.   It’s up to you! woman sells Usborne

8.  What if I have a friend who would like to sell, too? GREAT!  More consultants are needed, especially in certain areas of the country.  We will be happy to talk with your friend and give her the same great training we'll give you.

9.  Why choose Usborne Books at Home rather than another direct selling company?   Usborne Books at Home has an incredible product - award-winning children’s books!  We also offer a generous hostess plan for FREE books, book fair programs for schools, a wide range of prices, and unlimited opportunities.  But, the reason to choose Usborne is because you believe in the books and want to make a difference in the lives of children.  Choose the company that is your passion!  We hope it’s Usborne Books & More!

10. Do you enjoy your job?  Yes, we love it!  We feel very blessed to be working with children, parents, teachers, charities and schools as I get incredible books into kids’ hands.  We also enjoy helping other mothers build home-based businesses to spend more time with their own children.  This has been a great opportunity for us and we hope you will think about how Usborne Books can fit with your background as a parent, professional, or book lover?
