Is training available?
Founded 25 years ago, B J Books Ltd is one of the premier brands in the UK direct marketing industry. We pride ourselves on selling the best quality books and gifts at the keenest possible prices, offering exceptional value to our customers.
We have agents nationwide and are now in the process of actively recruiting up to fifty more, because the business is experiencing exciting growth based on access to some really outstanding products.
What the company does
Our business concept is simple:
We market books and gifts in workplaces, schools, nursing and care homes and hospitals, by placing sets of 12-16 products in visible areas, with the support and assistance of a receptionist or office manager. We leave the products in place for 7 days, so people have plenty of time to assess the content and value during their breaks, and to place an order if they wish.
After a week, our agent calls back to pick up the sets, collect the payments and to supply the orders from stock they have in their vehicle.
5 weeks later, the agent repeats the cycle with a complete fresh range of products. It is very low-key: in fact no selling is involved, and the business is based on building trust and relationships with the outlets we serve and delivering consistent value and satisfaction.
What we offer
Almost all our distinct marketing territories are well-established, but a very small number are new, because of reorganisation. All are totally exclusive: you would be the only agent representing us in your designated area. Depending on your location, most territories are within a 25-mile radius of home.
We supply you with stock to the value of £15k, training and support with back up. We pay a commission of 30% of sales value, and you retain that weekly from the money you collect.
What you will need
A reliable vehicle, ideally a van or a people carrier, home owner, and suitable ground floor storage for 4 pallets of stock.
To be ambitious and self-motivated, energetic and in good health as lifting is involved.
You will also need to have insurance to the value of £15k plus in-transit value of £2.5k.
