A few months ago I was asked if I would like to write a blog post on behalf of Scholastic talking about their Book Champions campaign. As I was reading about it, I liked the sound of it so much that I decided to sign up to it myself. Book Champions can sell books from their very own home without even moving of the sofa. You can set up your own facebook page and host facebook parties.
This is what I have done. You can find my facebook page here – Serenity You Book Parties.
My First Book Party
At the beginning of December I set up my very first facebook book party. I had 3 friends pop by and 3 other people from my Serenity You Blog facebook page, where I shared the event. The event was ok, I sold a few books. But I didn’t really share my event that much. I have also shared my page and some of the books for sale on facebook selling sites. This is where I have had most of my sales come from. By time Christmas had come, I had sold over £300 worth of books!
As a book champion you earn 20% of what you sell. So this was amazing for me, which I did all from my sofa with a cup of tea and biscuits. If you get someone to ‘host’ a book party, they will also earn 10% of the total to spend on books. So they can get all their friends to join the party, buy books and the host will then receive Free books. Can’t go wrong with that.
You don’t just have to sell online. You can also host parties at people houses and sell at craft/Christmas fares etc. The one thing that you have to do is one book party that benefits a school or nursery, either online or psychically every 6 months.
