DS Business Spotlight on:

Discovery Toys

The World’s Premier Educational Toy Company


Sterling Educational Consultant

Describe your products or service: Educational Toys, Games, Software, and Books

How much time is involved? Is this business kid and family friendly? How?

Ø The time you put into your business is really up to you. When you hold a party you are usually in & out of the persons home in about an hour. I usually stay a bit longer and visit before & after the party.

Ø This is a business you can do with your family. I take my kids with me most of the time when I have a toy set up or an in home party. It even helps me because they know how to demo the products better than myself.

What do you like best about your business? What I like best about my business is that I get to play in order to make money. My children really enjoy trying out all the new products.

What’s the hardest part about your business? The only thing that can be hard about my business is that my children want to keep playing even when I am tired.

How much does it cost initially? What is the refund policy? Ongoing expenses? Hostess gifts?

Ø The kit deposit is only $49.00, but the entire kit fee is $149.00 or free if you reach our Super Start level. It is paid for in two more installments. You can easily have the entire kit paid for before the next installment is even paid with only one party.

Ø The refund policy on all of our products is 100%. The company will take anything back if there is something wrong anytime. If the toy purchased is no longer carried by the company they will refund all the money or exchange it for a toy carried at the same value.

Ø The only ongoing expenses I have are to order toys for my own household (at a discount) and buying new catalogs when they are available, but of course once I send them out they help me bring in even more money.

Ø There are usually great hostess gifts offered by the company, but I also add in a little something extra for an additional incentive to my hostesses. And of course the hostess will also receive the amount of FREE toys that they earned through their party sales.

How much commission or compensation do you receive? How do you advance to leadership? When you first sign up with Discovery Toys you automatically make 25% wholesale value of your sales. In addition you can easily earn monthly bonus checks for up to 40% on your own sales and 15% on your teams sales. The amount you make grows as you do with your business.

What is a realistic show sales average or monthly sales average? On average at a party I will sell anywhere from $200 to $500 in products which works out to me making $75.00 - $125.00 base just from the show. My commission checks for that party alone will be $20 - $75 extra income. That is only from one party though. I will usually try to do 2-4 parties a month if possible. It ends up being a great extra income for our household.

Do you keep your own inventory and make deliveries?

Ø I do hold some of my own inventory and do booth set ups at local events. That is not a requirement and not many consultants will hold their own inventory. It is really up to you if you want to add in the extra time.

Ø I do make deliveries if it is local, but mostly I mail all of the orders out or have the company mail them directly to the customer.

What’s the minimum requirement to stay active? The minimum requirements to stay active, once you have gotten started are very easy. You only have to have $150.00 in total sales per calendar quarter after your first full year of being a consultant. That amount is very easy to make after you have been active for a year, because you will have the same customers calling all the time just to make orders.

What skills and experience is required? What kind of training do you receive when joining?

Ø The only requirements for being an Educational Consultant yourself is that you want to make a difference in children’s lives, want to work flexible hours around your families needs, be your own boss, and want to increase your family’s income.

Ø The training you can receive is endless. We have an online website for consultants only with great help, weekly call-in updates, newsletters, audio and video tapes, conferences, monthly meetings on phone or in home, and extra mailings from the company directly along with extra mailings full of info from me! I am also available by email or phone for ANY questions that may arise.

How are your products or services sold? Can you sell online? Can you advertise online? What are the restrictions for selling?

Ø I sell products at local events when I have a booth, through my website, and of course at catalog and in-home party’s.

Ø You may set up your own website through the company and they handle all the updates and your orders. You really don’t have to do much work at all with those sales. The only thing I do with internet sales is send a “Thank you” email card.

Ø There are no restrictions for where or who you may sell to. This is your business and you run it as you wish.

What else would you like people to know about your business? I have really enjoyed being a part of this company and running my own Discovery Toys business out of my home. The opportunities are endless. We also have great incentive trips every year. This year the company is sending us to Vienna Austria. It is very easy to earn these trips once you get going with your own toy business. I am here to help others go as far as they would like with Discovery Toys and earn as much extra income as they want.
