I wouldn't trust most of them myself to tell you the truth - I believe usually you have to pay them something first to get some sort of information pack.
#2
yeah ive looked into various ones before and they usually come with some sort of catch, costing you.
#3
Yeh there usually licking the back of envelopes and sticking in rubbish advertising mail.

You will prob earn around £5 for every 500 envelopes posted, usually what you could earn is only a daft estimate !!
What they say you could earn means you would be licking envelopes every single min of the day to earn about £100 a fortnight.

None of these are genuine then I suppose. .... .... as no one seems to have any positive experience with these

Ive looked at these before, they are genuine, and it is possible to make as much as they say, but I'd say its very difficult!

9 times out of 10, you pay for a big pack of catalogues which you then work in your own time to deliver to local homes hoping they purchase something so difficult to break into. You then return to the homes to pick up any orders, catalogues and then try again. A lot of hassle imo.

Kleeneze is the company which springs to mind.

Avon too!

All rip offs!

Just get a normal job :)

yeah i did the Kleeneze stunt a good few years ago, this is what you have to do.

1. Kleeneze bloke comes around saying blah blah "you can make so much money" blah blah !!! and gives you loads of packs of forms and books and tells you what streets you will do.

2. write your address details etc on Kleenze order forms to put thru doors with their booklets and write down when you will be back.

2 and a half. Deliver all booklets to doors in the pouring rain.

3. go back in the sodding rain and knock on all the doors you went to 4 nights ago, some people might leave there booklet outside in pouring rain (useless wet book)

4. Have to go back to some of the customers houses that weren't in and also who told you to come back another night.

5. Kleeneze rep comes and collects all the orders (even if its for a £1 mop) and gives you more streets to go around.

6. you do more forms etc then go around the new streets posting forms.

7. Rep comes with all items for the first lot of orders and blooming heck there is loads of boxes !!

8. you have to sort out everything and bag everything up your self.

9 then you have to shove everything in the boot and go out again and deliver orders to every door.

10. some people werent in or some people didn't have money so again you have to make a second trip around all the houses to finish the order,

11. hand the order forms with the money made to the rep......

12. continue next night wit ht next lot of soddin orders....

all for only %15 of the takings which is your commission

for which i ripped up everything, stuffed it all in the wheelie bin and told the rep to shove his job where the sun doesnt shine !!! :x :x

If you become an Avon rep you get 25% off :thumbsup: Basically, you order the customers goods, but only pay 75%. No costs involved at startup. The only stuff you need to buy is books and bags. which is quite cheap! HTH
