I was/am one for Babykind, but made very few sales, and had trouble with some of the actual customers! I tried to get our local council to offer incentives, but they didn't see the point. I offered to do demos in local toddler groups and at Surestart parents groups, but none were interested, mostly because I "earned money" from doing so. The health centre and hospital were the same, and I couldn't advertise there either. As for earnings, I barely made back the cost of my demo kit, and as I can't drive to people, my "customer area" was pretty limited. I was annoyed by the ignorance and lack of support for using cloth nappies, and now if I get asked about them I tend mostly to just direct them here!
At the same time, it was fun in the beginning, I made up posters and business cards and information leaflets to hand out, and made a little photo album of Molly in cute nappies and woollies to show other parents.
Having just read that back to myself, it sounds a little bit off-putting
It doesn't cost much to start up and I'm sure most people would be better salespeople than me! As long as you're willing to put a bit of effort in (I think thats where I went wrong
) then it could turn out to be very rewarding! You wont make millions, but its great to introuduce new families to the world of fluff
