Starting out

Once you have signed your Agreement you will receive a Starter Kit of beautiful books and stationery. The great thing about starting out is you don’t need a lot of knowledge and experience, and you don’t have to be a sales expert. All you need is a passion for Usborne books.

The Tools & Downloads section on this website contains lots of useful information and downloadable resources. Ask your Mentor to show you around this section to help you find all of the information you'll need to get started. (The welcome email that you receive when you sign up contains your log-in details.)

Essential tips for starting out

  • Talk to your Mentor and find out how they can help you to get started
  • Familiarise yourself with the Usborne Books at Home website
  • Have a good look through your Starter Kit
  • Make a list of everyone you know who might like to buy some books
  • Make a list of everyone you know who would like to have a party in their house
  • Make a list of everyone you know who might like to start their own Usborne business
  • Search the internet, local newspapers and noticeboards for places to sell books in your area
  • Use your Quickstart Programme 12 Week Planner
  • Spend an hour browsing the Usborne catalogue
  • Tell your Mentor what you hope to achieve and they will help you
