About Usborne Books
UsborneBooks.com is the online home of Usborne Books, a company that says they have been publishing and producing award-winning titles that have been favorites for more than 30 years.
How Does It Work?
According to their website, Usborne Books has always made sure to produce their books with the highest possible standards and with the highest care and attention at each and every stage of production.
To begin with, they make sure that experts are consulted for each book and all subjects are thoroughly researched to make sure the information used is accurate. The text will be accompanied by full color pictures and diagrams, and hands-on projects are presented that allow kids to test the concepts that are being discussed.
They also invite their customers who know and love their products to become Consultants, hosting parties for their friends and family – and anyone else in the community that is interested – in order to make extra money, or even to establish a full time income.
This company does not publish their full Compensation Plan on their website, but they do say that all their party hosts will be able to earn a “generous amount of free books” and all Consultants will earn 25% commission on all retail sales that they are responsible for making or facilitating.
Though their company sells a wide variety of books and products, and there is no one single price range for their products, but the website does say that more than 70% of their more than 1,400 titles are currently priced under $10.
They do offer different options with their available Starter Kits for their new consultants, saying that all kits will include display books, starting supplies and a Consultant Training Handbook, and all new Consultants that join the Sunshine Team will be provided with training available 24/7 on their website.
This company does offer their customers a 30 day Refund Policy, as long as the books you are returning are in new condition and are able to be resold. Their website provides a full list of Return Instructions that must be met in order for you to successfully receive your refund, including the fact that you must be able to provide verification that your book was purchased from either Tom & Becky Dean or UsborneBooks.com.
If your books have been damaged and are not eligible for a refund or exchange they do have a program that is called their Half Price Replacement. Regardless of how the damage was caused, you can send them your damaged books according to their instructions and receive new replacement books of the same titles.
Customer Service Contact Info
Customers who would like to contact Customer Service with any questions, concerns, or complaints can do so by phone at 800-611-1655 or by submitting them directly to their website through their Contact Us link.
First, it is always important to point out that you should look for reviews either on the specific products in which you are interested in buying or for the business opportunity itself.
Generally speaking prospective customers will have difficulty when trying to find information on a multi level marketing opportunity, because in order to earn the most amount of money, representatives will need to recruit new representatives to their team. This means that any enthusiastically positive reviews must be looked at with a grain of salt. It’s not uncommon for people to oversell the opportunity and the earnings potential, and undersell the time and effort.
The truth is that this company seems like a standard MLM, though there are some concerns voiced online that because this company sells affordable books, prospective Consultants should be prepared for the small earnings they will be limited to in the beginning.
Competitors and Alternatives?
Companies that offer independent business opportunities generally aimed at women are actually fairly common and include well-known companies like Mary Kay and Avon, Scentsy, Pink Zebra, Lia Sophia, Park Lane Jewelry, and more.
