    Avon, Kleenex etc quick question please 25th Jun 16 at 3:30 PM
    Hi everyone

    I have extra time on my hands (after school times) and was wondering, apart from Avon and Kleenex what other catalogue type boost income jobs are out there?

    I'm not interested in the diet ones like forever living ones really.

    Thank you guys

    Avon and Kleeneze are both pyramid selling opportunities. You are better off looking at freelancing.

    Kleenex is a brand of tissue, I think you mean Kleeneze

    There is also Betterware, which like Avon and Kleeneze is a multi level marketing opportunity (or lack of). Threads about all 3 companies on this board which you should read. Perceived opinion seems to be that investing time or money in these may not be a good idea.

    Betterware allows you to sell catalogue products and there are some benefits over Kleeneze with this company, although you don't have the network marketing side of the business. You don't have to buy the catalogues yourself with Betterware however and you are given a 'patch' to cover whereas with Kleeneze you can go anywhere. There are also internet based businesses you can look at but they can take time to start earning from and are not instant.

    Whilst not everybodys cup of tea Avon and Kleeneze are both responsible legal Direct Selling Companie not Pyramid Schemes which are illegal in the UK.

    Pyramid schemes seek to generate income to those who participate, from the recruitment of others. In a legitimate direct selling organisation income is generated by the sale or consumption of the product either by the salesperson or those in that person's downline.

    Pyramid schemes do not offer contracts to participants, cancellation rights nor the opportunity to buy back unsold goods - all of which are required under UK law.

    While it's true that Kleeneze isn't a pyramid scam, which is illegal in the UK, it is a MLM (Multi Level Marketing) scheme, which is perfectly legal here. One may ask what the differentiation is between the two and the answer would be: ummmm....good question...not much.

    Kleeneze requires you to buy the catalogues from them and doesn't even offer you a patch of your own. I have seen Kleeneze catalogues from 3 different suckers (I mean agents) piled on top of each other on the same door step.

    Betterware gives you the catalogues for free and also assigns you a unique patch. There's very little money to be made as a field agent. However, if you can invest the time and shoe leather, sign up as a Territory Sales Agent and there is some money to be made. Not a huge amount but when I did this a few years ago I used to make between £150 and £250 per week. It does take an awful lot of walking in all sorts of weather though.

    Is there anything you're interested in Kittencat?

    Being interested in the product you sell is a huge positive because if people see you're interested in it then there is more chance of them being interested in it.

    I sell Jamberry Nail Wraps - I didn't plan to, I refused several people who asked me to join but after giving them a go I was hooked. My thinking was "I'm going to buy everything in the starter kit anyway and buy myself a set of wraps each month so heyho, lets see how it goes"

    I love what I sell, my friends and family love what I sell and I have a wonderful bunch of customers who love what I sell - I've already made my money back and I'm now in profit (it only launched in the UK in April)

    Besides that there is Younique, Usbourne Books, Maelle (similar to Younique), Stella and Dot...there are loads which is why I asked if you were interested in anything in particular

    i'm with kleeneze and it's a great opportunity. you don't have to get the catalogues. you can sell online like facebook etc. there is over 2000 products to sell and up to 20% commsion on sales. there are also various bonuses to be had. I really enjoy it. there is also no targets you have to hit unless you set your own
