London Mums have partnered with Premium Italian coffee roaster illycaffè to launch a pioneering new and fun initiative to allow mums to earn money flexibly from home by doing what they love – holding coffee mornings for their friends and family at home, chillaxing and chit-chatting over a cappuccino.
illycaffè is looking for 20 brand ambassadors in London and the surrounding areas . It’s simple to sign up: email email@example.com telling us why, as a busy mum, coffee is so important to you.
Any London mum who becomes an illy Coffee Mum will be given a unique code, which will enable them to sell illy products to their friends and family: their friends and family will receive a 10% discount, and the mum will receive 10% commission. This discount / commission is available on all illy products on www.espressocrazy.com (illy’s UK website), from machines and coffee to illy collection cups, milk frothing kettles, tea and chocolate shakers.
It’s the perfect get together – mums’ friends and family will receive a discount on some great presents, and mums can earn a bit of extra cash flexibly.
The selection process, the VIP day out and the cash
The best 30 entries will be treated to a VIP illy training day out in London, with a buffet lunch at illy Regent Street, a fun coffee training session at illy’s University of Coffee in Islington and cocktails at a local bar to finish the day.
Following the training day, at least 20 mums will be selected to become official illy Coffee Mums.
The 20 illy Coffee Mums will be given an illy machine of their choice (either an X7.1 or a Y3 and Milk Frother) and also a starter kit of goodies, including a case of coffee, some fine Belgian biscuits, a chocolate shaker, premium French Hot Chocolate and some flavoured coffee syrup. The machine will be delivered to their home address along with FREE illy coffee capsules in time for their first coffee morning, where they’ll earn commission for every coffee machine they sell!
There will also be an opportunity for the mum who sells the most amount of machines at the end of 2015 to win a cash prize of £1,000 or a holiday for two to Rome.
Don’t dismay – if you’re not selected to become an illy Coffee Mum on this occasion, your name will be added to a holding list, as illy will be running this scheme all over again later on next year.
Why get involved?
If you are a home mum who wants to earn some cash flexibly and without leaving the house, this is your chance to be part of the illycaffè family. You do not need to be a saleswoman to become a brand ambassador for illycaffè and there won’t be any pressure to hard sell these products as there are no targets and, in any case, they will sell by themselves!
illy is a brand that is synonymous with art and design and is well known for its unique and matchless blend of no less than nine different Arabica coffees from across the globe as well as its ethical relationship with coffee growers. I have personally got involved as I am passionate about this Italian brand and I have my own machine that makes an amazing coffee.
Join us NOW by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org for the chance to become an illy Mum! We only have 20 spaces! And remember, if you are not selected in the first round, you will be put on a reserve list for next year’s competition.
