So you’re thinking of becoming a Betterware Distributor / Representative ?
The BIGGEST thing to note when looking into being a Betterware Distributor is that you would be joining an organisation where your target market DOES NOT NEED to buy those things. They are non-essential items. Most men and women will buy what they need, when they need it when they are out doing their shopping. If anyone buys from a Betterware rep it is usually out of kindness.
The next problem is how you are seen. You will be targeting your warm market – friends and family. You will get some sympathy purchases but you will then be seen as a pest. You’ll find that people will avoid you. They won’t pick up the phone in case you’re wanting them to buy Betterware products.
“As a Betterware Distributor you are assigned a particular area to work in, not necessarily close to home and to fixed timescales that rotate and determined by your Co-ordinator. You will be issued with a number of catalogues that you don’t have to pay for. The amount of catalogues you are given depends upon your local region’s sales performance. You can buy additional packs of catalogues at £5 each if your allocation isn’t sufficient for your needs. There are 40 catalogues to a pack, they are very heavy to carry and out of those 40 you will get less than a third returned to be reusable – even less with wet weather and even paying £5 for a pack of plastic bags is no guarantee they will stay dry. On your first outing, the Co-ordinator SHOULD be out with you and the order forms will have their name and contact details, not yours and the date and time highlighted when you are going to collect them. Again, your Co-ordinator SHOULD be with you when you return to collect. If it has been raining, then you will have the pleasure of many soggy catalogues to dispose of, because once wet they are useless.
So the procedure is:
- Drop off catalogues
- Collect catalogues
- Re-order books drop off
- Collate orders
- Pass to Co-ordinator
- Receive goods
- Deliver goods and collect money
So the minimum number of trips to the same address with an order is 4 and even more if they are not home when you call. Factor that into your travelling costs.”
“Ability to deliver goods ordered highly dependent on coordinator’s circumstances that eventually culminated in an unexplained, sudden and unwarranted lack of response to my requests to order goods, forcing me to issue apologies to customers, who sometimes expressed anger and cancelled orders before I could process them.”
“The big problem with “passive” catalogue dropping through letter boxes is that there is a very low return back from the catalogues delivered and then collected maybe with an order at a later date, so the cost of replacement is very high. I have been guilty of this a couple of times when the Betterware catalogue has dropped behind the hall table, or we are all out when the betterware distributor calls. The average Betterware distributor loses around 60% and sometimes more catalogues a week”
