Does anyone actually do this or are they all cons?
I sent off to two company's advertising in my local paper for info, both sent back similar looking A4 sheet of paper waffling on about how rich you could become if only you send them a cheque of £15, saying this is just so they know you are definitely interested!
I remember seeing similar scams on watchdog, so will not send this off unless i hear from anyone else that its genuine.
But, i am desperate to earn a bit of extra cash to help chip away at our debts, but as i already work parttime, i am unable to find any extra childcare, so it needs to be something i can do at home.
Anyone any ideas? or experience of envelope stuffing?
I have considered the usual avon etc but i'm not sure how much i'd manage with a 2 yr old in tow (i.e the delivering of brochures etc) not sure that the amount i'd manage would be worth my while.
Delivering of Avonn brouchures with 2yr old in tow - Easy - hang them over the buggy with 2yr old in them. I used to make roughtly £75-150 every 3 weeks with Avon - admittedly I did have about 20-30 regular customers though - but not difficult to find. I started Avon when DS1 was 18 months, finished when DS1 was 3 1/2yrs (and DS2 was about 8 months). Loved it while I did it but wouldn't go back to it.
How about ironing from home. I know a lot of people that do that. Just look in your local directory to find an ironing company.
I have thought about it myself but doubt anyone would pay me as my ironing standards are not very high
Fran - I won't deny it was VERY hard work at times - and certainly at times I felt like giving up (finally gave up because I moved and don't drive so was too far to my 'round'). You get between 20 and 25% of your sales so first campaign I only got £20 as I sold about £80 of stuff. Also it's VERY tempting to 'spend' some of your commision before you get it on stuff in the representatives catalogue.
The company I used to work for used to employ envelop stuffers but it was never from home. They either got temps in to the office to do it, or sent it to a specialist company who did it on theor premises.
Had a friend who did Betterware and Avon she said she preferred Avon - but only because it was easier to deliver - she had great difficulties trying to deliver mops and other 'long handled' object (and strange shaped things) with a buggy LOL
Yeah I sometimes have the same problem Gwenick - but I get dh to deliver them by saying something like - 'footie on Sky hon, so on your way to the pub to watch it .....'
I do make a decent amount of commission from Betterware and dont put a lot of hours in.
