I know someone who got involved with Kleeneze here in London. They charge for the brochures and apparently whilst a lot of people do leave them out you have to keep going back for the stragglers. You have to spend ages putting the brochures in plastic bags (with pick up slips that you have to pay to print off yourself....not a small amount of money when you look at the cost of print cartridges plus the paper of course).
Then once you have collected all the catalogues back you have to go through each one for the order forms. You never get all the catalogues back and therefore have to buy more. Don't forget that a big difference with Spain is that a lot of the properties you drop catalogues off with there aren't inhabited all year by the potential customers. A lot of places will be rented out or only used occasionally. How do you get your catalogues back then? Answer - you won't. So that's an awful lot of them up the swanee, which have to be replaced.
It's absolutely drudge work and that's here. Going around dropping off brochures, then going back round to collect and then again and again in the heat of Spain would be awful, from what I've been told. You have to get a minimum order together to place it with the company.
My friend chucked it in before she had to go and buy more catalogues. Yes, you can probably make money...eventually, once you've built up a customer base. Of course, once you have people working under you and you're taking a percentage of their orders, then you're on your way. It's a pyramid structure, like most sales arrangements.
So, just beware. It costs money, is extraordinarily tiring and time consuming and the rewards are pitiful. Plus the actual products are trash. You can get just as good at the Chino.
