Other Multi-Level Marketing companies specialize in personalized children’s books. Even though publishing has come a long way, some of these companies can have extremely high start up costs.
Many require you to purchase inventory and software. They train you to use software, but you have to choose how many of each title you will need and hope you are right. Some even require that you purchase a minimum number of each title, which can cause start up costs to run into thousands and leave you with unused inventory.
But kids and parents love these books. Parents are always ready to buy a personalized book for their child to make them feel special. So, although you may incur steep start up costs for your book selling business, you should see a profit within year of business if you work hard.
Some of these MLM's are getting away from required inventory and cutting start up costs by allowing you to purchase a set of CDs so you can print books digitally. The books stay on your computer and you print them off as needed. The parent company may require your home book business to purchase paper and binding material from them to ensure quality of books remain constant, but this is still cheaper and less bulky then ordering inventory.
You can print a bunch out as samples and have home parties. Many of these companies offer web sites in their packages. Even if they don’t, web sites are essential and minimal in cost and many providers have generic templates to help you set up your web site. Personalized book companies give a suggested retail price, you are always able to change it as you feel is appropriate.
A book selling business is a great way to meet people of all ages and share your love for books with them. It can be worked as a full or part time career, depending on how much and how fast you want your business to grow.
