5 TIPS for Success  by Ruth Smith
1. DO events!  You have so many marketing options with home shows, preschool book fairs, teacher setups, education conferences, play group shows, soccer sign-up set ups, youth group fundraisers, local Festivals, or any place there are people with children in their lives that would love to have great books available.  (Note: to work with schools & libraries, you must be a certified Educational Consultant.)  Do events to let people see what you have to offer.  1-2 home shows or other book events per week is a good balance for most consultants.  This leaves plenty "family time" and provides enough income to make a difference. 
2. NOTICE & talk about the positives in every event!  When you do things well, they DO lead to more business - even if you don't know what it is yet.  It may be even better than you'd dreamed! 
3. SMILE sincerely!  People are more likely to want to buy from you, invite you into their home with their friends to do a show, or even sign up with you if you are pleasant & helpful.  You can be proud of what you are sharing, and you have a good support system in place.
4. KNOW what you have to offer.  Have a few books, catalogs & flyers for the current specials (Customer, Hostess & Recruit) with your contact information (You can print flyers from the newsletters - www.ubah.com/consultants, Downloads, Newsletter, pick the month's Inserts) with you at all times & share the information generously. 
5. BELIEVE you can do this.  Find other supportive book buddies to talk with, and do something "visual" with some of your profits.  The program is in place for your business to GROW!
If you do these 5 things, you will do well! 

You are building a wonderful business that you & your family will appreciate for years!
